I am currently looking for a reasonably priced, or even better yet free, place to keep a sailboat this summer. The boat is a Phil Bolger designed Long Micro, coming in at just under 20 feet long. It draws only about 16 inches and would be easily tied to a small dock or the like. If I was able to find a party that would be interested in helping me out, I would gladly let them use the boat in trade for access. I am looking to be up the river somewhat if possible, just for protection and I am currently living on that side of town. If you or anyone you know has access to a unused dock and wouldn’t mind a beautiful boat lashed to it, please let me know! Thanks! Included are some photos of a Long Micro, very similar to the boat in question.
I listened to Emily Haavik from a window on the parking lot at the Chester Creek Cafe / Sara’s Table / Whatever They Call It. It was standing room only, all the way out the back of the wine bar, so Paul Lundgren and I went outside, where the windows were popped open, creating a straight line of sight, a warm breeze from the inside, and an opportunity to hear someone whose voice was really just a shortcut to her heart.
I own the non-typical rental home. I am the non-typical landlord. I have a gorgeous 100-year-old craftsman in the east end. It’s my dream home. I’m supposed to be, currently, raising my precious kids there. Unfortunately, there was no job to be had by my husband in the region when we lived there. In an effort to come back someday, we have kept it and are trying to strategically place tenants in there who care for it.
Anyway, I digress … I need to find a reliable, available (on-call for random and unusual “emergencies”), honest, quality and affordable handy person. I want to support a local person. (Read: not a big property management company. Been down that road, got burned hard. Now keepin’ my money local!)
2 p.m. – Trampled by Turtles plays Live in Studio A on KUMD 103.3 FM with Christine Dean. The band plays “Midnight on the Interstate” live in the studio, interrupted by a test of the emergency alert tone. Second song — “Alone.” Third song — “The Calm and the Crying Wind.”
2:28 p.m. – About 30 people in line at Clyde.
2:50 p.m. – The line starts getting long.
3:30 p.m. Over 400 wristbands distributed. About 600 left. No more line to wait in. Easy process.
I’m looking to have an old sidewalk pulled out, and a nice new one poured early this spring/summer if at all possible. I’m also considering adding a textured/colored concrete patio to my back yard. Can anyone recommend a good contractor in the area that I could call for a bid?
So, at Sacred Heart for Homegrown, and outside the doors, right next the a cigarette disposable receptacle, this guy (with a large beard) clearly flicks his still burning cigarette out on the ground, at the church no less. Now, I’m a smoker too, but is it really that hard to not litter the place with cigarette butts? Gosh, I guess I thought at least people going to Homegrown could care just a ‘wee’ bit better than this … end of rant.
