Car Photo of the Day: Cure for a grey, snowy day.

Our mid-winter break of mild weather and sunshine is over. I put the studded snow tires back on the TDI and we’ve seen well over a foot of the white stuff. I did get the 65E out for a drive a few weeks ago… exploring roads I’ve never driven. It was wonderful, though a tad chilly with the top down. I’m looking forward to the end of winter so I can explore some more. Meanwhile, here is a shot of a summer’s evening drive up the Pacific Coast Highway in northern California a few years ago. Fond memories of that trip indeed.

Keep Clam – and a Spicy Chicken.

As much as I love my new home in Central Oregon, I am occasionally homesick for the Seattle area. No time so much as lunchtime. I miss teriyaki the most. Sure, there’s pseudo-Japanese/Seattle fusion fast food on just about every corner and every strip mall in western Washington – but over on the dry side I’ve only ever seen one, and it is in Redmond (a 20+ minute drive from my office.)

Yes, I even miss those quirky, crazy clams at Ivars. But I must carry on without them.
