I would love to have an electric car. The vehicles that Tesla makes are slick machines with a lot of power and nice amenities, with a well-thought-out user experience. If and when I get a new car, it will definitely be electric, though I might lean toward something more practical like the Chevy Volt. It has …

Recap of the party’s latest adventures in Phandelver.  Spoilers below the fold. Flush with Harbin’s reward for defeating the orc marauders, the party returns to the The Stonehill Inn to recover from a tough battle.  In the morning they will return to Tresendar Manor to find Glasstaff and dispatch the remaining

Guest photographer Denny Barnes sent me these gorgeous night sky photos about a week ago, and then I forgot, so I didn’t get them posted. I am so good like that. So, with my apologies for being a dork, here are his photos. The first one (top) shows the moon, and Venus and Mars make […] The post

I found this little one on a sidewalk the other day, and I wanted to kick myself for not having my macro lens with me so I could get a proper shot. This photo is heavily cropped, and not as sharp as it should be. I found it on a sidewalk along Marion St. The post

If you’ve decided that purchasing an investment property is right for you, the next step is to figure out what constitutes a good investment. You can check what we look for in an investment property here – the post is older, but the idea is the same. Once you know what type of property you...

Guest photographer Maryann Nielson made me one very happy camper by getting these photos of the albino squirrel at Pioneer Park. I first learned of his or her existence last month when Terri Jo Adams spotted him from a distance. This is so cool. See Maryann’s second photo below. Thanks, Maryann! The post

I was at Bi-Mart on Shaff Rd. yesterday, and they had some tulips out for sale. I didn’t have my DSLR camera on me, so I took today’s photo with my cell phone camera. It’s pretty amazing what those things can do nowadays. The post

In my ongoing effort to make the colder parts of the country jealous of my area’s unseasonably warm weather, I bring you: tree blossoms. I had to really look, but I spotted a tree along 10th Ave. sporting some blossoms, and despite the wind, I managed to get this photo of two cute little flowers. […] T

My friend Jeff reminded me this gorgeous tree on the corner of 2nd Ave. and Marion St. was about to bloom the other day, so I went by yesterday to get some photos. Above the whole tree, and below is a couple of the blossoms. The flowers point upward, so I wasn’t able to get […] The post

Most of us reading EmptyEasel would probably identify ourselves as either hobby artists or professional artists. Hobby artists create art for the sheer joy of creation. Sales are great, if they happen, but they’re really not THAT important. Professional artists enjoy creating art just as much, but they also have the a

We are moving into spring around here, but the trees have a lot of catching up to do. The oak tree on 10th Ave. seemed kind of lonely, like it was waiting for spring to just get here already. The post Empty Arms appeared first on

Guest photographer Maryann Nielson found some lovely crocus flowers for us today! I went looking for some a few days ago, but came up empty, but she found some in her neighbor’s yard. They are so nice, I have to post more. Thanks, Maryann! The post

The latest RMLS Portland Market Action data was released last week, and our latest infographic is below. Two notable points in this data are the inventory level and the average sales price change. As the infographic notes, there was an increase in new listings and a decrease of closed sales compared to December 2014, which

I almost feel guilty posting this photo, since so much of the United States is having terrible weather at the moment. Not here, though. Yesterday it was around 60 degrees (F), sunny, and I went around without a coat on just because I could. Even with the nice weather, I was still surprised to see […] The pos

Our bedroom looks east, and when there is sunshine, either blessedly clear or like the photo, striving to burn a frothy layer of clouds, it fills our eyes upon waking. We are enjoying having a very pared down space, with precious little art, a few trinkets, and all new furniture called Calvin which was made […]
