Let’s All Support this Cool Guidebook for Affordable Wine

My good friend Jeff Siegel, aka the Wine Curmudgeon, is a nationally known wine blogger whose motto is “common sense talk about drinking, buying and enjoying wine.” He asks questions like “Is $100 wine 10 times better than $10 wine?” From his website: Jeff Siegel, the Wine Curmudgeon, is a nationally known wine writer whose […]

Latest Breakfast Bulletin

Every now and then I manage to squeeze out a newsletter called the Breakfast Bulletin. It’s not really all about breakfast anymore, but it’s a semi catchy name. The latest issue, January 2013, is out now, with breakfast news and reviews, a list of upcoming events, and a way for you to win either a prize […]

Introducing “Pure Pleasure Paul”

I don’t even know what to say about that phrase, except that I would hope it’d get me some dates. My friend, and member of the Breakfast Crew, Joan Gale Frank, is also the author of a blog called Amazing Portland. She did me the honor last week of writing a blog post about me, […]

Great New Book: Get Started Fly-Fishing!

A little break from Portland Hikes and whatnot, for a review of a book that would make a fine gift for somebody who might want to get into fly-fishing … Everybody who fishes can tell you who got them started. Often it was their dad, or an uncle, and in most cases more guides and […]

Crazy Dream

Inspired, in part, by this interesting post on an otherwise kinda goofy site. I think what really drives all this frustration for me is the knowledge, deep down, that I am cluttering up my life with tasks and chores and ideals that don’t come from the Source.

The Glories of Authorship

A friend who might be getting a book deal asked me about “the numbers,” and here’s my response. This is to explain why, even with four books in print right now, I drive a 20-year-old car and live in a tiny studio, from which I work at two jobs. —– Good to hear from you, […]

Mini Sledgehammer Writing Contest

The other night I tried something new: I went to a writing contest. It’s called Mini Sledgehammer, and the idea is you meet at a wine bar and you get 36 minutes and four writing prompts, then you write a story. (There is a regular Sledgehammer with 36 hours to write.) Normally, we would then […]
