There's a party being planned. If you've got a blog you'll probably want to attend or at least see what's up.
Looks like it's going to be held in Oregon. Home to the quirkiest wine makers in North America, Oregon acheived statehood in 1859 but it wasn't until 1954 when the federal government actually told anyone. Pretty wet on the left, not bad in the middle and very dry in the east.
The jawflapping pow wow will be towards the middle.
