What, You Hungry?

If there is one thing that unites locals from 808, (or divides them for that matter) it's Ramen, Saimin, noodles... whatever your fix from, curry ramen, to Pho, Hawaii has most places beat in the U.S. when it comes to noodley, soupy decadence.

i am not here to espouse about the joys of eating in 808.

Behold the New York Times Article on Ramen:

Wonder at the magnificence that is the blog, RamenAdventures:

You know, this part of Oregon could very well use a nice little ramen shop. Now where are my chopsticks and that bottle of La-Yu....

2010: The Month In Review

Why it's seemed like 2009 was only a month ago...(or less).

What have we learned so far?

Farm/Ranch projects are always ongoing and will always follow the laws of entropy.
Even if you can keep most of an area dry, prepare for leaks.
It is wet in Oregon.
It is cold in Oregon.
It is wet in Oregon.
If it says "Unbreakable" or "Impact Resistant", it will most likely receive some sort of impact and break.
It is dark in Oregon.
Winco does not accept certain methods of payment.
Socializing your indoor human being is a good thing.
Good car or Cheap car, you can pick only one.

Sometimes, the people that you thought were your close friends will abandon you over:

Political differences
Socio-Religious beliefs
Tickle Me Elmo

hey it happens...

Yamhill is not a Native American word that means "Feel the Excitement"
Sometimes city water isn't all that.
Soon i will reach the milestone of putting the "unt" in "country" for two years.
People from Waimanalo make it to Newberg, Oregon.
If someone says it's spicy, it's probably not.

The fun never stops.

Here's A Thought...

How about a Swedish Steppenwolf tribute band called:

"Bjorn To Be Wylde"

it's ok, you can use that if you like..

The Beginning of Twenty 10

Rain continues to fall here at F.O.B:Y.F- the dark steel gray Oregon skies releasing an incredible amount of H2O onto the muddy ground. Hyperbole? Perhaps, but you are not here. So there.
Fences, regardless of the weather, will choose the time and place of their next failure. Mud has a tendency to form with or without my input. Solar chargers, oddly enough, need the Sun.

Should i paint with broader strokes? It's not all bleak, it must be a typing impediment, right?

20 Ten

One hour and 42 minutes into the new year, a fence repair was required.

In the dark.
In the rain.
In two inches (or more) of mud.

Only in Yamhill. Happy New Year.

Twenty Ten

2009 came and went, leaving behind a snowy calling card. We hope for a Happy and Prosperous new year.
