Prayer to Saint Cupcake:

Oh Saint Cupcake, you bring us joy and love through a variety of batters and frostings.  For that we praise you.  Please give us milk to enjoy on the side.  Amen.

I wish I had that in front of me again

I never knew Swiss Miss had this blog. It’s cool because it’s original.  I remember visiting Portland and hearing her say how she was going to scan the new postcard I sent her from New Mexico.  But I didn’t quite understand why. Now I know why.

Spotted in Washington Park in Portland, I found this statue while hiking to the Rose Garden.  It seemed strange to me.  Who put this statue up?  Because out of all the places I’ve been to, Portland is one of the whitest (don’t worry, Bend, you’re still number one).  So I’m wondering, did Native Americans put this statue up before they were all kicked out or killed off?  Or did a bunch of whiteys put it up to show empathy about their invasion of Oregon? Can anyone enlighten me here?

Yes, that DOES say "Coming of the White Man"

It’s officially been 3 months since I’ve had a job.  The last day day of employment was June 13th.  Here’s what I did on the first day of school for Montgomery Countians, which was Aug 26th.

As I walked into my hotel in Eugene, there was a back section just for conferences.  I found this gem and hope I have a conference one day to invite Amy to.   If the video isn’t working on your screen, click here.

You could study this at University of Oregon in Eugene.

Not to be confused with Vulcanology.

I guess Eugene wasn’t that exciting.  I only took two pictures there and this was one of them.
