Glad to be back in Portland after three weeks of biking around and showing films in 100 degree weather. Tour was fun but exhausting. Be sure to check out the site blog, which we’ll be updating with some reflections and more pics in the next few days. I have about 40 DVDs of Tough Stuff left; pick up one here.

The dust is settling and things are beginning to take shape for the Dill Pickles. Lots of planning, projecting and grant writing. We started a Facebook page; join the “I knew ’em when” club and become our fan.

A quick blurb on a happening this weekend from Ms. Carye Bye:
