My good friend Earl and his (now) fiancee came to visit me in Portland on
the way through from San Francisco. These are some of the things that we did
when they were here.

Earl and Amie spent part of a day at the Japanese Gardens here in Portland. Learn more about
the Gardens HERE . When they got back, they had a hankering for sushi, so Earl
and Amie got to teach me how to make sushi. This is Earl's square roll.

As is now becoming tradition, I took Earl and Amie to Fong Chong's for dim sum and made them eat
chicken feet. Video HERE .

My friends Paul and Allison hosted Canadian thanksgiving and seeing as I had Canadian guests,
it seemed appropriate to invite them as well. Earl and Amie made a delicious carrot casserole that
was more dessert than side dish, but was DELICIOUS!

Some pictures from San Jose

I got a hold of some tickets to see the Sharks home opener. This is the zamboni in San Jose.
I think it's awesome!

My buddies Carl and Stan from Saskatchewan joined me for the game.

Since it was the first game of the season back in San Jose, they were giving out schwag. We got
a miniature Stanley Cup, so here I am hoisting it.

A blurry shot of me trying out a Bluetooth headset. I only posted this one for Natalia since I
know she loves the dork factor of the headset.

I have no real explanation for this one.
