Will be going North (not to Alaska) though I have many times. This adventure will take me from coast to coast. Most likely to wind up in Boston. I will have some good sights, taste and tales of adventure and local lore to share on the way. Stay tuned.

Belgium is where you get the best fries
in the world.
In Belgium they have Chocolate, Fries, & Beer ...
If you’ve already tasted the belgian chocolate,
and the beer, you no doubt understand
quality, now is the time to complete the
triumvirate of taste and have your first foray into the true culture of fries. If you didn’t know, we actually get our American version of the French Fries from Belgium, the originator of such fine gourmet delicacies, sounds a little bit convoluted yet it is true.
Where else do you get 18 different kinds of dipping sauces too try.
Check it out, Google it. In fact after you tried the Belgian Fries, you will already know.

After spending many $$$$ on Chelation therapy in which I received some benefit. It is an intravenous solution of EDTA that enters the bloodstream, it is believed to attach itself to metal molecules. It then takes about 48 hours for the body to excrete these substances through the urine. Remove Toxics
usually takes two to three hours per session
The total cost could run as high as $4,000. (Treatment for metal poisoning usually involves 20 to 50 sessions.)
What Is It?
Intravenous chelation (pronounced key-LAY-shun) therapy has been a respected and widely used medical treatment for heavy-metal poisoning--especially lead poisoning--for more than 50 years. However, some physicians also promote the therapy as an alternative treatment for arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), including coronary artery disease, peripheral vascular disease (blockage or narrowing of blood vessels in the legs), and the mental deterioration caused by small strokes.

Now for under $50 dollars I can do the same thing.
This spot I recommend to my friend Tami at http://cheftami.blogspot.com
Pix Patisserie 3402 SE Division, 232-4407
Pix is basically Toys 'R' Us for chocoholics. Its list of luxurious desserts is staggering. Whether you opt for the Ambrosia (rosemary ganache and reduced port cake), the Troubadour (ganache, marzipan, crystallized ginger cake) or the sinful chocolate-covered, Kirsch-infused drunken cherries, you'll be glad you found this place. Tuesday is free movie night from 6-8 pm, so grab a hot chocolate and munch on a few espresso macaroons while you and your date watch Pete's Dragon.

Here a place with no sign outside to let you know, you just have to know that.
Rimsky's is one of those classic Portland spots, like Berbati's or Dot's; any Portland hipster worth his or her salt knows this tried and true hangout. Drop into Rimsky's for a cappuccino, Café Vienna, or Borgia (orange mocha) and one of their irresistible, calorie-dense desserts, like their chocolate raspberry fool. But there's oh so much more! A chocolatey cookie crust nestles rich espresso-orange cheesecake. Local rhubarb pairs with cinnamon beneath a brown sugar and oatmeal crumble. Nutella and hazelnuts make up a luscious chocolate tart. In the mood for ice cream? Grab a spoon, and dig into the Ship Goes to Pieces Against a Rock sundae (choco-mint ice cream, hot fudge, and whipped cream). And hit the treadmill next week.
