How things look through an Oregonian's eyes

I love my Allbirds shoes. They make my feet smile.


I'm a man who adores lightweight comfortable shoes. Being a 69 year old man, I also need my shoes to be supportive. Not in a psychological sense, but as in arch-support. My newfound shoe love is called Allbirds. They're made...

Here's how I feel about my atonic, underactive, neurogenic, screwed-up bladder


Regarding the title of this blog post, in two words, IT SUCKS. Big time. Before I elaborate on this, let me address what I tell myself, and what my wife tells me: there are many worse health problems. For sure....

Breaking news about Salem "Watergate" scandal


YES, SALEM, OREGON HAS ITS OWN "WATERGATE" SCANDAL. City staff aren't adequately watering downtown hanging baskets. So says my informant, who would go nameless if I didn't say it was Carole Smith, a downtown business owner and resident. I have...

Five observations about Ed Asner's show, "A Man and His Prostate"

More misguided cougar and wolf hysteria strikes Oregon


Oh, my! Lock the doors and keep the children inside! A cougar may have killed a house cat in Seaside, Oregon. So all student activities at Seaside Elementary School were moved indoors. Which is ridiculous, because while cougars may kill...

Hope vs. Reality vs. Idiocy: my chronic condition conundrum


When my wife and I talked with an Oregon Health Sciences University urologist three weeks ago about my bladder/prostate problem, wanting to get a second opinion from Dr. Jonathan Witten, I told him that I was looking for a balance...

Our town's attractiveness, like perfection, is mostly in the mind


I wish life was perfect. It isn't. The Buddha taught this. Life is suffering. We're born, we grow old, we die. Our goal shouldn't be to try to eliminate suffering in a vain attempt to make life perfect, but rather...

Why are there so many kinds of windshield wiper arms?


I'm an atheist, but after spending way too much time today trying to figure out how to put new wiper blades on our cars -- each of which has a different kind of wiper -- a prayer to the Automotive...
