If you are living in one spot for a length of time, it can be worthwhile to compare the price of owning a home to renting a home....
I went down to Bo and Vine Burger Bar the other day to try it out. Technically their Grand Opening is tomorrow, but apparently they've been open for a couple of weeks. You can find them on Monroe and 3rd street downtown next to Benny's donuts.
We had the "Pitmaster", a concoction of burger, smoked ham, bacon, fried onion strings, cheese and a few other flavors... quite tasty and pretty substantial. Burgers are available with bun, lettuce wrap or gluten free buns. They feature a variety of burgers... with options of 1/3rd pound beef patties, chicken patties, veggie patties, along with salads, fries and tots, "Piles" (fries loaded with goodies, "Dante's Inferno is pictured"), shakes and beverages. All in all it was pretty darned good. We went at about a quarter to 5 pm and it wasn't crowded, by the time we left, around 5:30 pm, it was pretty packed. Now that they're officially "open" I suspect it'll be pretty busy during the typical busy dinner hours on a regular basis.

This guy was outside one of our bedroom windows this morning. Back when I lived in Hawaii we used to be visited by wild boar. They would come down the mountain and eat mangos as they ripened and dropped to the ground. We thought it was fun at first, until a group of them decided to stick around the neighborhood. Pigs can be VERY destructive. With the deer here in Corvallis you have to be careful to fence off your garden or plant deer-safe flowers and shrubs, but otherwise they aren't as problematic as having a group of wild pigs hanging around.

Saturday at 5pm they 'll be back in Gill Coliseum to put on an exhibition game against Montana Tech.
I'm looking forward to this upcoming season. My guess is, barring injury, it'll be the deepest/strongest Beaver basketball team they've had in a while.
