After what I've witnessed in the NFL playoffs, methinks the games might be rigged. In hopes of a clean game without favoritism by the refs, my vote is for the Seahawks.

Stay tuned for the 4th quarter, peeples!!!

GO HAWKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This 12th (wo)man is rootin' for ya all the way!!!

A couple other nice "out of the way" places I recommend are up in the gorge...

Skamania Lodge's Cascade Dining Room. Talk about a view!!! And the ambiance of the great room with the huge stone fireplace!!! We celebrated our 35th anniversary there.

Multnomah Falls Lodge. You can request a table with a view of the falls or of the gorge.

The places I mentioned are a bit spendy in the evenings...but when enjoying a special time with your special one at places such as I mentioned, makes it all worthwhile.

Now if you have money burning a hole in your pocket, there's also the Portland Spirit Dinner Cruise...a nice treat.

I hope you have a great time with your special one! It's always fun starting a new tradition with your better half...8))

Nails...if you don't mind a little noise, the best steak I've had in a long time came from Beaches...their 12 oz New York steak with those awesome potatoes and roasted veggies.

Mmm...mmm...mmm!!!

Get a waterfront table towards the east end of the restaurant and it's not so noisy...and the food is well worth the trip!!!

Another place which I prefer is Black Angus in downtown Vancouver...never had a bad steak from there!!!

What I hate most about election time is what it does to people. Folks get nasty if their comfort bubble is disrupted and it takes articles like the one by HuffPo to generate the nastiness. They're just getting a head start..8))

Hawk, there's too many unanswered questions regarding this tragic loss of a young man's life.

Possible scenarios:

Fog hampering vision
Freeway/jet noise hampering hearing
Wearing headphones or on cell phone
Texting
Hearing impaired
Tried to cross the tracks before train (sight-distance perception issues)
Medicated
Fighting personal emotional demons for which I care not to list

We may never know.

All that matters now is the fact a family is devastated by the tragic news. My thoughts and prayers pour out to the family of this 17 year old.

First of all, I want to iterate that I do not support Palin's running for office. If I had to vote today, I'd be pushing for Christie most likely.

Secondly, regarding the HuffPo article, since it is a piecemeal job, I would not regard it as a trustworthy execution of factual evidence. Now if the entire speech was written in text, word for word...THEN I would take the article a bit more seriously.

Still, we don't need a cheerleader for prez. Nothing gets accomplished.

I know, huh!

Sorry, I just had to say it...must be the wonderful weather outside!

Speaking of time outside, I was given a wonderful gift of nature, today. While taking a break from re-stacking firewood, I witnessed 2 red tail hawks chasing off a bald eagle...from my backyard!

Nice!!!

Reminds me of the song by Bill Withers..."Ain't No Sunshine" when he says "I Know" about 26 times.
