Missing Summer in Portland

Today, I took the light rail in to campus. I was meeting a colleague on the East Bank--we're planning a symposium on Innovation in Developing Nations (stay tuned for more on that!), and we met for lunch to discuss plans for the symposium. I got off at Cedar-Riverside and walked the four blocks to the restaurant. On the way there, I swear, I almost fell at least twice! I hate the ice more than anything, I think. I can't help wondering during times like that whatever possessed me to move to this cold climate? It's probably 45 and raining in Portland right now.

On the other hand, I have some fantastic projects in the works. I just finished an ethnography project on former students in the Commanding English program and that turned out well. I'll be submitting some form of it for publication in an upcoming monograph by the Center for Research on Developmental Education and Urban Literacy. And, we got the feedback on our book chapter back from the external reviewer--she really liked our chapter! So, I have a lot of good things going. I probably shouldn't even complain about the weather.

I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

Building a new home always has some kind of excitement attached to it, as it is considered to be a status symbol. Some countertop sinks are pre-drilled with tap openings while others come without, letting you position your tap where ever is most convenient for you.

How do you know what bathroom furniture most closely fits you? Plywood is made from thin sheets of wooden. Example: Having replaced the bathtub with a corner shower, transfer the hallway sink to the space beside the shower.
