THE TASTY BITS THIS WEEK
Special Feature Story of the Week
-Last Sunday, The Timbers fell 0-1 against the LA Galaxy down in California. Perkins thought he had been fouled in the box by Donavon (which he was) and looked to the ref for a dead play, but Dunivant shot a header past him and the Ref called it a goal. http://m.portlandtimbers.com/news/2012/06/recap-dunivants-header-difference-la-top-portland
-In the final minutes of the game, Hanyer Mosquera was caught punching Jack McBean and has been suspended three games and fined an undisclosed amount. Hanter Mosquera Link.
-BUT the best news of the week is The Timbers Took down our arch nemesis Seattle 2-1 JUST a few minutes ago. Boyd received a great cross from Smith in the 16th minute to put us up one nil, then in the 25th minute, Horst got his head on a great ball that flew past their keeper! Seattle managed to get one back in the 58th, but we held the lead through the full 6 minutes of stoppage. The Game ended with red cards, fighting, and general mayhem! Just what this rivalry is known for! At the time of this posting, the seriousness of Alhassans injury is not known. Lets hope he makes a speedy recovery!
Each week I check in with Marshall Kirkpatrick for the latest in Tech news and tweets. Whether he is tirelessly building his new project Plexus Engine or continuing his work with Read Write Web, Marshall always has his finger on the crystal ball of whats new in the world of technology. This week I will show you a few things that are inspiring us and we think are totally awesome.
-Marshall pointed out two very different Google results when one asks Google a question in Slang vs Proper English. One is quite negative in nature and one is incredibly positive. This example uses the question “How Can U” vs “How Can An Individual” as the two questions! Go to our website to see the screen shot. Just follow the link!
-And from a positive and thoughtful Twitter Feed, Marshall tweeted out ‘The year 2015 will be the 150th anniversary of the abolition of slavery in the US.’ Hard to think about any atrocities, let alone, at home in our country!
-From Trendoy, I have a link to an AWESOME key-chain that is a USB attachable CHARGING port for your mobile Device. It is not to replace your battery, BUT when you really need just a little More Power, this little gadget is just what you need! The link, of coarse, is on our website! Key-Chain Link. For 19.99, you can finish that call, task or email!!!
SPECIAL SUPPORTLAND TIDBIT
Each year at the end of June, all the people I work with at Liberty Natural Products and the Oregon Lavender Farm put together a big Lavender Festival! Well this year is the 6th Annual Clackamas County Lavender Festival will be the best ever! We have three bands, two Wineries and A Brewery! Great Food, a Huge water feature, and TONS of Lavender in Perfect Purple Bloom. In years past, the Lavender has been both too far into bloom, or even worse, like last year, hardly in bloom at all! BUT not this year. We are looking perfect! What do you do at a Lavender Festival you might ask? Well there is a whole list of events and vendors at our website on the Lavender Festival Links! But to name a few activities, you could make a wreath, listen to music, have a delicious Baked Potato or Burger with all the fixins’, and even Sample some fantastic Beer and Wine. While we usually have horseback riding, we won’t this year, but hope to have it back next year. You can meet up with a friend, or even make one. Lots of people come out to the festival with the intention of just having a nice relaxing time! While it is true that we all love our dogs, Service animals only please! But besides them, them rest of your family and friends are invited! The festival does cover both Saturday and Sunday, trust me, being there on Saturday is the real fun! While most of my Supportland Tidbits are usually Portland Centric, this event is one that is true to my heart and always a blast for me to put together! SO, grab the kids and bring your smiles and come on out to the Clackamas County Lavender Festival!
