Changing Portland One Fruitcake at a Time

Another holiday season brings us to our favorite holiday tradition, fruitcake! This year Earl has been busy personally making over 350 fruitcakes to hand out. His essay “The Zen of Fruitcake” gives us insight into the process and why this concrete confectionary holds a special place in Earl’s holiday routine.  

Enough is Enough

It’s been over two weeks since the shooting in Roseburg; little has been done in Congress to put a stop to gun violence, but Earl has a plan. 

Happy birthday, Earl!

Thank you to everyone who joined us at The Joinery last week to celebrate Earl's 67th birthday. It was a great time!
