  1. This time of the year the Oregon Coast is absolutely the best place on Earth. The down side is from October through April the sky is solid grey with constant drizzle and 40 degrees. I have lived here my whole life and over that time I have had lots of neighbors and acquaintances who have move here from other parts of the country and after one Winter they are done.
  2. Yes things are getting back to normal. Thank you Hotbot!!!
  3. That ad goes back at least 2 and a half years from when I was spending a lot of time on Craigslist and yacht world looking for boats.

  10. When I met my current wife in 1974 she was managing a record store. She turned me on to Bonnie Raitt, and John Prine. I would add to that Bob Dylan, Mark Knopfler, Marvin Gaye, Joni Mitchell.
  11. Back in the 80s I owned a appliance retail store. This was the sound track of my life. "We've got to install microwave ovens, custom kitchens delivery, we've got to move these refrigerators, we've got to move these colored t vs
  12. I had downloaded a bunch of music before I did the delivery of a previous boat I had just purchased home down the coast. This song just seemed the perfect name to rename a sailboat. The turning lead into gold just seamed perfect for a race sailboat. When I got home I mentioned that I was thinking of renaming the boat Philosophers Stone, my sons girlfriend at the time 18 years old says oh after Harry Potter..... Its still one of my favorite Van Morrison tunes.
