Team Skirt or Team Pants

You are on Team Skirt if you prefer wearing skirts to pants, and vice versa. There’s no restriction on the types of skirts, and skorts count as skirts too. Any type of pants count too, so jeans, joggers, and leggings all count as pants.  I love to wear voluminous, swooshy midi and midaxi skirts, and am looking to add more to my capsule for hot, warm and mild weather. I adore A-lines and bias cuts too. I don’t generally like to wear skirts in cold weather unless I am indoors and insulated all day...

Movies Like Requiem For A Dream You Really Need To See

14 Shows Like Broadchurch That Are Definitely Worth Watching

There's a reason why people keep going back to "Broadchurch." The ITV series set in a fictional Dorset town has a lot of the elements that make mystery series so appealing. In stories like this, a prominent character, often a detective, arrives from out of town to help with a case, clashing with local law enforcement. In "Broadchurch," that's David Tennent's character, Alec. There's often a more seasoned local detective who thinks they know everything, and whose world gets flipped upside-down on...

Revisiting the Blue Poppy

Among the most magical of plants, the Himalayan Blue Poppy (Meconopsis) is quite the mythic character within our community of avid gardeners. At one time it could be found growing to perfection in the Pacific Northwest at the Berry Botanic Garden, which sadly now, has shuttered its gates. It was in this setting of rare flora that I first came upon a vigorous stand of blue poppiesintermingled with blooms of pink, peach, and red! An unforgettable sight. Be that as it may, I'm currently enj...

Why Genealogy on TV is a Good Thing

Well, I think I've reached my personal limit with regard to the nay-sayers about the various television programs that feature genealogy. I'm so tired of listening to the complaining. In fact, I tend to think that the nay-sayers are a small number, yet they seem to holler the loudest. And this isn't a new thing when it comes to genealogy.When I was first online in 1995 I watched the Internet take off in an astronomically fast upward spiral with regard to genealogy. I started keeping track of my b...

Family Biking: Taking ‘all bodies on bikes” to heart

I was nervous about re-entering a bike shop with this body instead of my collegiate athlete one.(Photos: Shannon Johnson/BikePortland) I don’t look anything like I used to. And that’s been hard to swallow. In a former life, I was a top athlete playing a Division I college sport (soccer, I was goalkeeper). I was fit, lean, muscular. I had six pack abs that were so well-defined, people used to gawk at my mid-section. I had all the privileges, confidence, and ego that can easily go with su...
