OCB PNW States Championship

Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of helping to bring the first OCB show to Oregon, an area in need of a natural bodybuilding outlet. I judged and served as expeditor. The venue -- La Salles Auditorium on the OSU campus in Corvallis -- was fabulous, as was the quality and energy of the competitors. The spirit of the show was typical OCB - a supportive, nurturing and rewarding environment promoting camaraderie and respect.

Pics and scorecards at the OCB website.

reading Something Familiar

I gave a reading of Something Familiar at a bookstore on the coast over the weekend. Cozy, relaxed atmosphere. Note bookstore cat named Tom on chair. Good excuse to go to the coast.

...and here's the terrific pizza we had. dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, feta cheese, green olives, walnuts...lots of it all.
