Gracious! A month!
I have not updated in over a a month because:
1) I was back in the promise land ( aka New York City) for two weeks, where I ate well, saw lots of sights, visited friends and saw "Radio Golf", an excellent play.
2) Then I had oral surgery;
3) Then I scrambled for funding for my home, which i am on the verge of getting and
4) Then I was taken with laziness.
So back to blogging.
And now we are deep in Rose Festival time, which gives time and opportunity for Portland to let herself shine, with blooming flowers all around. Which it is a opportunity to point out all the things dingy with Portland, of course.
