Wallowa County


Posted on Sep 2, 2008

I spent a long Labor Day weekend in Wallowa County which is in the very rural Northeastern corner of Oregon.  On the drive out, we stopped at the Stonehenge in Maryhill, WA.  This Stonehenge was built to scale after WWI to commemorate the men from the area who died in battle.  Not having seen the real one, this one is still very impressive and such a great attraction to have in our area. We also toured the Maryhill...

My husband is training for the Portland Marathon in October.  He has to do these really insane runs to prepare.  This Sunday he had to run 15 miles.  My Father-in-law and I rode our bikes in support.   We handed him food and water along the way.  This is the second time I've accompanied my husband on these long runs.  The first time I didn't have my camera and I saw Blue Heron, Baby Osprey...

Most people who know me know that I'm not the best housekeeper.  Let's face it my priorities are about making stuff, not cleaning stuff.  So when I need to do a super good cleaning, I have my husband bring in the Shop Vac from the garage.  This is the miracle worker of cleaning tools.  With one machine I can get cob webs, base boards and everything in between.  It is the best for getting rid of cat...

2008 Olympics


Posted on Aug 11, 2008

I've been waiting for the Olympics to begin for months.  I was glued to my TV on Friday night for the opening ceremonies.   I really didn't think anyone would be able to top Bjork's performance in 2004.  The Chinese were incredible.  Using 15,000 performers made this a spectacular show. The drummers in the top picture had precision accuracy on drums that would light up when hit.  Here is the...
