  • Lake Wahtum to Chinidere Mountain Hike

    Lake Wahtum to Chinidere Mountain Hike

    I hiked from Lake Wahtum to Chinidere Mountain with Rob and Ted E. Bear (a standard poodle). The weather was great, as was the scenery: clear views of Mount St. Helens, Mount Rainier, Mount Adams, Mount Hood, Mount Jefferson, and a peek at the Three Sisters. This hike is worth repeating. :-)

  • Fireworks


    We went to Banks to see fireworks this Fourth of July. It’s close, parking at the school is easy, and it’s not crowded. We ran into friends Rodney and Brenda and a new friend Laia. I brought my camera but no tripod. I also brought only a 28-105mm zoom for my Canon Rebel XT. It […]

  • Saturday at Cannon Beach

    Saturday at Cannon Beach

    We skipped church and went to the beach this past Saturday. The weather was beautiful (if you’re an Oregonian). Just a light mist and no not a lot of wind. That’s a wonderful trade. Turns out, they were having the sandcastle competition at Cannon Beach. We were on the beach in time to see the […]

  • SNA — PDX Trip

    SNA — PDX Trip

    My multi-purpose business-personal-conference-fun trip is over. I flew from the Orange County Airport (SNA) to Portland (PDX) yesterday afternoon. For some unknown reason, I ended up in first class (honest, I didn’t ask for it, but it was a wonderful birthday gift). For more information on glories, visit Atmospheric Optics.

  • Afternoon Trip to Sunset Beach, Oregon

    Afternoon Trip to Sunset Beach, Oregon

    Saturday afternoon we went to Sunset Beach on the Oregon Coast. And by “we,” I mean Suzi, her sisters, and all our families. When we get together, we always have a great time. :-) Sunset Beach is a long, wide, flat beach that you can drive on. Note to self: check the tide tables before […]

  • There’s Still Time to Register for the Oregon Primary

    Oregon’s primary isn’t until May 20, long after when I thought the primaries would be decided. Looks like I was wrong. If you want to vote for who should be the next president (or who shouldn’t be), you still have time to register. For first-time registrations in Oregon and changing party affiliations, the deadline is […]

  • Oregon Weather

    I figured I’d check what the weather’s going to be for the rest of the week. Welcome to Oregon… ;-)

  • Panhandling in Oregon

    This makes it difficult for me to give to panhandlers. COOS BAY, Ore. – A police survey says panhandlers outside Wal-Mart in Coos Bay can make $300 a day. Inside, it takes a clerk a week to make that much.

  • Thanks for Asking…

    My day was great! So great, in fact, that I just have to share a small part of it with you. This is what central Oregon was like earlier today. Enjoy! ;-) If you’re a true friend, you’ll watch all 7:10 of it. Gee, thanks, YouTube…
