Got up this morning, feeling blue, don't want to go to work and the 37 guys put up these photos of a garden that, for some reason, made me smile. Thanks!

I really miss Portland. I lived the beatnik life there in the early 90s, well beatnik without the drugs and alcohol so not really beatnik.

I loved spedning time in the rose gardens and the Japanese Garden.

Great pics, thanks for sharing. Reminds me I need to get cracking on that book I began writing while living there. :)

I just visited there last year, but I didn't see the steps in "IMG_1311.JPG"

Very nice.

Jason, so glad you came. Your presentation was great - clear and concise, with great, actionable examples. Great meeting you also!

I've lived all over the planet, and I chose Portland because it's got it all [nearby] - trees, mountains, rivers, ocean. That, and a good biz climate. Webvisions is like a big class reunion for all of us local developers. Come back next year!
