Not since living in Colorado have I marveled at the thunderous spectacle of a spring storm. Pounding and rumbling, water sluicing quickety-quick down gutters and shimmering streets. Pittsburgh weather is, thus far, the best I have ever known, elementary school definitions of the elements, fall-winter-spring, at least. We

To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never […]

This tractor was pulling what I believe is a chisel plow (which I learned last year) down E. Santiam St. recently. I don’t know where it came from or where it went, but I would imagine it’s a bit difficult to drive oversized equipment through town. The post

It's no secret Oregon loves fast players. Speed is the name of the game in Eugene, and based off this video, it looks like Theo Howard will fit right in with the Ducks when he arrives on campus in 2016. At The Opening Regional in Oakland Calif., Howard, a 4-star wide receiver commit ran a blazing 40-yard dash in j

Hullo gentle reader. Happy day after the final episode of Mad Men. Which we have not watched because we do not have cable (never have) and are impatiently awaiting its arrival to the Playstation Network, so we can get this business over with, and I can sob or jump up and down in anger, very […]

This rather pretty Harley motorcycle was parked outside Ace Hardware on 1st Ave. the other day. I had to take this picture with my cell phone because I didn’t have my regular camera with me. Either that, or I forgot I had it. I can’t remember if I can’t remember. The post

How about some pretty green farm fields for today? Well, there’s a bit of civilization on the left there… Power Motorsports, in fact.
