Sunshine & Seger. Must be a lot of people with sore throats this morning from singing along with Bob at the concert Sat night. And all that sunshine! Reminds us of why we stay through those dark, drippy winter months. No better place to be than the Pacific Northwest. in the Spring.
NO STUDS ALLOWED! And now that winter's behind us, time to remove those studded tires. If you get caught with them on your vehicle as of today you could be fined $190 in OR, $124 in WA.
ROAD TRIP next year? Saw in the Oregonian that author Ken Kesey's heirs are renovating the original Further bus and taking it on a trip across the country next year to mark the 50th anniversary of The Merry Prankster's first trip. Maybe Concert Dave can put together a caravan to follow it?
APRIL FOOLs: If you're not afraid to make a fool of yourself, you can get some deep discounts at Music Millennium thru the 14th by singing songs by artists like Kiss, Bob Dylan, Stones & others.
Let 'em film you and you could win a $250 shopping spree. Fun times at Portland's coolest record store.
