There and back again

Today is Tolkien Reading Day, an obscure commemorative day to encourage reading, specifically reading of the works of JRR Tolkien. At the Oregon DOT, we've seized upon this as a day that we can geek out and share our transportation-related messages.

This year we're focusing on alternative transportation — biking, walking, riding the bus or the train. And who better to exemplify this than the Hobbit himself, Bilbo Baggins? In his many adventures he used all sorts of transportation modes. So grab a book and hop on a train and enjoy the day!

No refunds, no exchanges

Unless you have a receipt. Then that changes everything!

Service is as service does

I'm afraid I may have been on the contributing end of one of these just a couple of days ago. It's the thought that counts, right?

Sketchbook: It's a seasonal thing

Welcome  to the first day of spring! For some, that means allergy season is here! Woot!

Another sign of spring is that General Conference is just around the corner. That means that Mormon Cartoonist Arie Van De Graaff has his semi-annual General Conference Activity Packet available for download (now in three languages!).  Check it out!

General Conference talks have to be vetted by a correlations committee before they're ready for prime time. That same vetting process doesn't happen on the ward level — you never know what you're going to get!
