Ahhh, Halloween. Fortunately there was only a slight sprinkle.

Proud tiger boy next to his tiger bus.

When I wear the teeth, he calls me "mamamonster".

Quite a stash for a little guy. And people, please, less Airheads and lollies, more chocolate. Gah!

Finally crashed, with his whiskers still on.

and just to compare, here he was last year...

This is SO cool. These people turn cigarette vending machines into art vending machines. Art for only $5 a pop. Genius!

Pebble Balance

If you haven't seen any of Dave Gorman's work, you should really check it out. He is quite funny. Got an email update from him this morning that included a link to his flickr account. He has some excellent pics from travelling across the U.S. The best part, however, is his seeming interest in balancing rocks. Fascinating. Check it out!!

Yes, We Are Still Here...

Was a busy couple of weeks.

Hooray for Google, and Boo to Doctors! Makes me want to get a cell phone with internet access....

This is a cool site - this woman makes clothes that are funky. She will also take your old worn favorite shirt and funk it up into a new wearable garment. Genius! I particularly enjoy her veggie collection. I saw her ad in Herbivore magazine, a cool zine that is made right here in Portland.

Finally, consider making a difference (or more of one!) through the end of the year with Organic Consumers Association Breaking the Chains pledge.
The pledge includes:
--Buying Organic, Fair Trade, and Fair Made products.
--Boycotting Wal-Mart and the Big Box chains, as well as the big chain bookstores, restaurants, grocery stores, and coffeehouses.
--Buying locally or regionally produced organic and green products.
--Buying Organic, Made in USA, Union Made, or Fair Made clothing, or else shopping for vintage and recycled garments.
--Boycotting sweatshop products from nations such as China, where labor rights are routinely violated.
--Giving preference to independent, locally owned, or cooperative businesses.
--Turning off corporate controlled television, radio, magazines and newspapers, and tuning in to the alternative media.

Tough going, I know, but it really makes for fun Christmas shopping! I know an excellent cooperative you can get started at... Just food for thought.
