Today, there is a story from PortlandOnline about Oregon's movement towards the 5% biodiesel mandate. It's a short piece, and here is the gem: “What is so great about Biodiesel?” To begin, the raw oil used to make it comes from canola, which can be grown right here by Oregon farmers, reducing our dependence on […]

Roots Organic Brewing Co www.rootsorganicbrewing.com Roots Brewery is fantastic. I walked over after checking out Free Geek's Geek Fair yesterday and spent a good hour or more there.

Yesterday, I stopped by the Geek Fair @ Free Geek with the NetNinja and Eric Diamonds. It was a good time, with a lot of good people. I had to move on to the Roots Brewery around 4:30, so I missed some of the Geek Fair Activities. Click on Thumbs for Large Sizes:

This comment was left by Russel (thanks) yesterday in response to my blog about shotty MetroFi coverage (OPB discovers that Metrofi is crap unless you are Kristian Foden-Vencil).

The NYT has an interesting article today about people scrambling to get Whole Foods new cotton bags with “I'm not a Plastic Bag” written on it. I called the local whole foods and they do not have any plans to roll out these bags here. A quick check on Ebay showed them going for $100! […]
