- The Food Dude gives us a couple of links to Portland food maps, including a fabulous map of many of the downtown food carts.
- Thanks to the Carpetbagger, I know I'm not the only one who thinks "The Constant Gardener" got forgotten in this year's Oscar nominations.

I'm still not sure I know how I feel about it, as the more I read the more complicated it gets. I hate it when that happens.

- Ride My Handlebars has a great post - with pictures! - of a whimsical sidewalk find.
