SKS Postcard: The SPAM Museum

Sara got this postcard at the one and only SPAM Museum, located in Austin, Minnesota, also known as SPAM TOWN USA. Sara has actually visited this marvelous place.

She says she tried several types of SPAM and they were all nasty.

This card also include the delightful message, “Nothing says FRIEND like a can of SPAM in the mail.”

Too true, Sara. Too true.

Three sentence movie reviews: Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

While this is a great documentary to watch at any time, I highly recommend seeing this in the theater so you can hear everyone else around you also crying. I’m not really sure what makes it such a sob fest* I just know that it was, but in a good way. If you are going to see one documentary this decade, this is the one.**

Cost: free for me; friend paid me back for helping her move
Where watched: Hollywood Theater with, Kelly

Goes well with: probably 20 Feet From Stardom, but I haven’t seen that yet. (I know!)

*Mr. Rodger’s calm voice? The fact that our lives are nothing like the world he so carefully built for children? His philosophy of radical love?
**It also has some quite funny moments.

The Emerson School: No longer at 105 NW Park Ave.

Here’s the building where I spent nine years of my working life.  And as of last week, it’s a building that no longer houses the school I used to work for.

That’s right!  After 15 years at this location, The Emerson School has found a new home in Northwest Portland.

In moving closer to get a picture of the “For Lease” sign I laughed at the site of the wagon wheel, which somehow managed to escape both the junk collectors and the movers. I guess the next tenant will get to decide what to do with it. (I don’t think there will be a next tenant. I’m guessing this building will be pulled down.)

A nice time capsule of the color the room used to be (fuscha and turquoise) before Bre repainted it a more soothing color.

I am so incredibly glad I did not have to do anything to facilitate this move (two days of the junk people and five days of the actual movers) and I’m very excited for The Emerson School’s new home.
