Official Email Addresses

Have you ever wanted to send an email to a couple local elected officials, but all you can find is stupid web forms for comments and no actual email addresses?



Well, for those of you who might have or might some time in the future - (which may only be me I guess) - I found this site which lists many of the cities in Oregon and has the actual emails of their mayors and councillors and that sort of thing.

And for those of you who are not in Oregon - it look like you could get to other states and cities too... Try clicking around. :)

They seem like they are good addresses too, as I found the site doing searches for email addresses for a city. I had found one email address for a city that was in a format like "" and I knew the names of officials so I started searching for "" and found this site. In comparing the sites email addresses to official city sites that do list them, they all look right. And none have bounced back yet (fingers crossed).

Anyway - enjoy, and keep your elected officials working for you!

We had been looking at RVs for a long time, focusing mostly on class B versions.  Class B RVs are on van chassis and stay within the van footprint, as a result the Class B RVs are very manageable compared to their larger siblings.  Most Class B can be driven in cities, parked in normal spots, and genarraly fit into tighter situations than you would ever consider for a much larger Class A or Class C (when most people think of RVs they are usually envisioning Class A or C).
We decided on a 2017 Winnebago Travato.  We chose the 59g floorplan and waited for the 2017 1/2 models to come out with their few nice mid-year improvements.

iPhone iOS4 passcode lock workaround if you can't run iPhone config utility

In iOS 4 and 4.0.1, if you perform a "reset all settings" on your phone it can sometimes cause you to lose all your options in the "passcode lock" section of the phone settings, only leaving you with the "immediately" option.

This can be annoying as you will then have to enter your passcode immediately when your phone locks for any reason. I usually like mine set to a 15 minute delay so that I can use my phone frequently without typing in the passcode, but it still locks after a while.

This is a known bug, and should be fixed soon in an upcoming iOS version. Until then there are two workarounds.


In October I bought a 2017 Triumph Tiger Explorer XRx.

So far I am enjoying this bike.  I have no connection whatsoever with Triumph other than I own a few of their motorcycles.  (Although if anyone from Triumph or wants to sponsor me I certainly wouldn't Turn them away.).

Here are pictures of my TEx out and about.
