C'mon #RPG  community. If we can raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for games, we can raise a few hundred thousand for a new season of JourneyQuest, right?

Hey everyone,

I'm looking for some great websites, blogs, news sites, etc. which have an emphasis on family-friendly and kid-friendly tabletop gaming. 

I already know about GeekDad, but what are some other websites you'd recommend I check out?

Yeah, I've not found many either... It was one of the reasons why I started mine. I'll dig through my MOUNTAIN of saved links and see if I have gathered any others. If I come across any, I'll post 'em here.

One of our players just had to drop, so right now we have 2 confirmed players and a few maybes. Anyone interested in joining us in about 1 hour for a game of Psi-punk?

Psi-punk is a Fudge-compatible cyberpunk RPG. No experience necessary. Pre-gens provided. I'll be accepting up to 6 players.

My son may be a zombie.

We were cooking sausage for lunch, and he said "MEAT! MEEEEEAT!"

Thankfully we placated him with the sausage and he didn't eat our brains, but I'm a bit worried now.

I've been trying to get Gareth to say "Hi" since he was about 10 months old. He's been saying tons of new words lately, but up until now has refused.

Today he made me proud.

The Garibaldi Maritime Museum was our first stop in a recent trip to Garibaldi, and we couldn't have started our trip more pleasantly. Though the museum appears small on the outside, it offers plenty to see and learn about. For a mere $3 per adult, my partner and I spent around 4 hours wandering around, reading, watching, looking at, and generally absorbing all of the exhibits. We finished up by getting a bunch of unique gifts in the giftshop. The museum tells the story of the history of Garibaldi and provides a ton of information about ships, fishing, and more. It also tells the story of Captain Robert Grey, the first American to visit the West Coast and the Columbia River. There is a ton of interesting information about 1800s sailing ships, including detailed info about navigation methods, living quarters, attire, and so much more. There's so much here I felt like I was ripping them off by paying only a $3 entry fee. Finally, the woman who greeted us when we came in was exceptionally nice. She was the only person working that day and was very friendly and talkative. She also noticed that I am visually impaired and (politely) asked what the museum could do to improve its accessibility for future visitors. It was a conversation I was glad to have with her. If you're going to visit Garibaldi, you need to stop by the Maritime Museum.

My partner and I stopped by Fat Dog Pizza on our way out of Tillamook on a Sunday evening in mid-March. Though the pizza was good and the service was fine, we didn't experience much to rave about. The prices seemed reasonable, especially since their pizza is made fresh. I overheard one employee telling another customer that their restaurant was said to have the best pizza on the West Coast, but the food didn't really seem to live up to that standard. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't spectacular. They did offer some unique toppings, such as artichoke hearts, that you wouldn't find in most pizza places. The crust was simply okay though, and the breadsticks weren't anything to write home about. If you get a soda with your dinner it comes in a standard 12 oz. can, which I personally prefer to fountain drinks, but people who are accustomed to large quantities of fountain pop may be disappointed. Overall, we felt Fat Dog was a decent place to eat for the price, but we won't be visiting again.

I have eaten at Thai Cabin several times and it's one of my favorite Thai places in the area. The prices aren't too high and the food quality is excellent. Service has always been swift and friendly, and I haven't noticed any issues with restaurant cleanliness. The barbecue chicken is great, especially when you add some Thai peanut sauce, and their pineapple fried rice is delicious. I'll definitely continue eating at Thai Cabin when I'm craving great Thai food.

Rosebay Park is a well-rounded neighborhood park near Orenco Station. It has many of the things you might expect from a park -- including a swing set, play area, and basketball court, and it is pet friendly, complete with doggy bags. There is a big grassy area to run around and play games. Uncommon to other parks, it has two barbeque grills, fire pit, and picnic tables. The park's walking paths are lined with bushes of all sorts, including the occasional rose bush. If you're in the area and fancy a stroll, Rosebay Park might just be the place for you.

Pirate's Cove is a great place to eat if you're visiting Garibaldi or the surrounding area. The view is absolutely spectacular, especially if you are able to get one of the many seats situated directly next to the window overlooking the bay. The food was very good, if not a little pricey. My partner and I both had the honey barbecue salmon burger. She got the clam chowder as a side, which she said was very good (not the best she's ever had, but definitely great) and I got a side of house french fries. The fries were so good I couldn't keep her hands off of them and we had to order a second plate! We both loved the barbecue sauce that the salmon was cooked in, but the tarter sauce we received for dipping our fries was too oniony for our liking. Our waitress was prompt, attentive, and very kind. We couldn't help but adding a little extra to our tip because the service was so excellent. I do recommend visiting Pirate's Cove at lunch if you can help it though. We visited in mid-March and the place was pretty busy even during the afternoon. When we drove by again during dinner time we noted the already-too-small parking lot was completely packed and there would be no way to guarantee a window seat for dinner. Overall, our experience was fantastic and we will definitely visit again if we find ourselves back in the Garibaldi area.

I've been to the Hawthorne close to a dozen times, but not entirely by choice; they're the most common place in town for underground Heavy Metal, but their sound system is terrible. Heavy Metal is a genre that especially benefits from a killer sound system, and Iced Earth, Symphony X, Epica, Orphaned Land, and others just sound washed out compared to other venues. I still go back time and again because of the bands they attract, but I really wish they'd update their sound for the 21st century.

I recently went to Jefferson's Pizza with a group of friends on a Saturday night after every other nearby restaraunt had closed, and boy was I surprised. We got two Large pizza for $19, a 24 oz. bottled pop for $1, and the owner threw in a 2-litre of pop for free. I'm not sure if he gave us the drink free because we tipped him, or because it's standard practice, but he didn't actually offer it until we were on our way out and had already paid the bill and the tip; he wasn't just trying to buy our gratuity. To top it off, the owner could tell that we, being a group of 6, were having soem clear issues deciding on pizza toppings for teh two pizzas, so he threw in one free topping per pizza -- on the house. He was more than willign to split up the toppings so they only covered half a pizza, or even only one or two slices. Clearly, his m/o is to ensure that every customer is satisfied and he's willing to go the extra mile -- with a smile! He also gave us free paper plates for our take-out order, along with little cups of tomatoes and pineapples on the side, so those of us who had been discussing getting those toppings could still have them. This was completely unexpected, but a great surprise when we got home and discovered it! Finally, the pizza itself was great. Certainly not what I would normally expect from a $10 Large, but definitely what I would expect coming from a shop with such a huge focus on pleasing the customer. I could not recommend Jefferson's Pizza highly enough. This place is astonishingly awesome, especially since it is in such an unassuming storefront. If you're ever in downtown Portland, stop by for a great experience!
