Portland stuff: those of you who will be in Portland either of the the last two weekends in September, I've come across something that oddly fascinates me: An Opera based on "Too Much Coffee Man."
Click that, and look at the pudgy fellow with espresso for a head. Does that not intrigue you? Will you perhaps watch this opera and report back?
Oakland stuff: does anyone want to help me plant free daffodils in medians? The City of Oakland/Home Depot collaboration to hand out free daffodil bulbs
to anyone who will plant them in public spaces continues this year. Bulbs to be passed out Saturday October 21. I have a shovel, and the median in front of the old folks tower near me is lonely.( Why aren't the old folks ever at the 7-11 across the street? )
On Nancy Nadel
's website (where I went to put in a good word for a potential 42-story condo in the park 5 blocks away) (which site, BTW, I had to park in front of last Sunday evening, because there was after 20 minutes of circling no closer spot that didn't require moving the car at 8 AM) (Grrr) I find that next Friday is to be Oakland's annual "CarFree Day". I'll be in Seattle, so hey, no car moving from me...( Brief bicycle nattering )
