    Heatin’ UP!

    So…. Portland has pretty much been The Gates of Hell hot this summer. As Northwesterners we enjoy the foggy days, endless rain and suicidal tendencies from not witnessing the sun for nine months straight. So when we get a blazing hot summer as we’ve gotten this year, we complain. A lot. This year the number of days where it has been in the nineties and hundreds (Fahrenheit, people) has been in the 10 multiplier range. As in MONTHS of blistering heat. Personally, I’m so ready for cool weather and rain that upon seeing the rainy forcast for this week, I wept. Or maybe it was a trickle of sweat, I’m…

    The fabulous Diana Gabaldon, author of Outlander. Why oh why would I raffle a Gabaldon ticket? Weeeeell, long story short I bought three tickets and one friend can’t make it.

    Birthday Treats Continue: Sequel Blurb!

    Birthday Treats Continue: Kilts!

    Kilts are the most notorious thing of Celtic culture, they can be the butt of Scottish jokes and make women weep with joy when a handsome kilted man meets a stiff breeze. :0) Today, to celebrate The Legend of Lady MacLaoch birthday love we’ve got going on, we’ll briefly tackle the history of the kilt as well as the importance of clan tartans and when they really became a symbol of clan allegiance.

A modern day clan chief. Pure Scot.…
