Watching Soccer in England: Best Times To Go, 2015-16 Season

If you’re planning a trip to watch soccer in England, one of the big questions is, What’s the best time to go? Or, if you’ve got a trip planned and want to know what games are on, you need some kind of reference. Fear not, my fellow non-Brits, for I have done my homework. Below […]

Recovery Share: Self-Awareness and Step 4

Didn’t get a chance to share in a meeting this morning, but here’s what I would have said, the topic being Step 4 and those “misdirected instincts.” “Creation gave us instincts for a purpose. … Yet these instincts, so necessary for our existence, often far exceeded their proper functions. Powerfully, blindly, many times subtly, they […]

Calling it Quits as the Portland Breakfast Guy

New Portland Brunch: Cafe Castagna on SE Hawthorne

One of the weird things about being the Portland Breakfast Guy is that I don’t get out to eat much after noon.

A report so far from the world of cab driving.

This has all been done before, and better, and from the night shift, but what the hell. I live, I roam around, and I write. You’ve got your salt of the earth bar workers, closing the place at 3, cleaning up til 4, drinking til 6, then calling for a ride home, paying in cash […]
