    The PNW wasn't always so expensive; it's only been the last few decades that prices have risen sharply. Fortunately, I was able to buy before real estate really took off. I love it here, and wouldn't...

    Animals are going to die in great numbers as long as we have industrial agriculture (didn't I make that point? I meant to), the only animals I saved during my tenure as a vegetarian were the cats i...

    As libraries go, Corvallis has one of the best, according to my bibliophile friend who lives there. And there are lovely Victorian homes in Albany, the next town over. Not to mention the excellent...

    I'd like to think the younger generation can sustain their passion and turn this old listing ship into something new and shiny. Revolutions do happen, and I'm more than ready for one.

    And Portland, and half of California. It reminds me of the idea that you have to work, work, work to afford your house that you're too busy working to enjoy. (And now there's grotesquely-priced...

    I've read most of it; I considered doing so my civic duty. Trump and his gang are in it up to their eyebrows. There's plenty of meat in that sandwich.

    I had only one job that required a degree, and I'm not sure even of that one. My silly little Arts and Letters degree wasn't and isn't worth much, which is, coincidentally, what I paid for it. I'll...

    It seems to me there's a veritable avalanche of facts, but the White House stooges--notably Trump's fixer, Barr--are holding it at bay. For now. The Mueller Report provided evidence of several...

    The idea is to discourage whistle-blowing. Look what happened to Reality Winner.
    This latest one should be very, very careful. I believe their life is in danger. Putin doesn't mess around.

    I couldn't agree more. We need more tradespeople, and a solid apprenticeship structure.

    All this wrangling about college loans is probably moot--only about one percent of such are forgiven, if...

    I got rid of a broken surge protector, which required rearranging a lot of computer equipment and moving an awkward piece of furniture, before switching it out with a new one. I'm unreasonably proud...

    You always start negotiations with some pie in the sky thrown in, and work down from there.
    Good for the kids. My siblings demonstrated at that age (and even my mother was drawn in).

    Diet most likely plays a part, for a variety of reasons. Vegans are particularly susceptible, probably because of numerous deficiencies. Food sensitivities may play a part.
