commented on Hey Transit Nerds: Metro's Considering a Day Pass Option
the other thing Metro could learn from London (which uses the same system as ORCA) is to refund the card deposit (and the value left on the card) when a tourist returns it. If London can do it, then so can Metro.
[Obviously they would check first to see that the card wasn't registered and reported as stolen before returning and $$, but that's easy enough for them to do.]

Nielsen's also makes excellent cakes, which are covered in marzipan instead of fondant.
(p.s., Nielsen's moved to lower Queen Anne around 1997, when their previous location at 3rd & Union was razed to build Benaroya Hall.)

Recipe question: are those whole pecans that you mix in to the dough or are they chopped first? Seems like chopping them would be best....

commented on Slog Poll: Leaf Blowers, Yay or Nay?
I have never seen a leaf blower used to do anything but blow leaves and refuse onto the street, which does nothing but move the "problem" while polluting the air and blowing dirt into people's eyes.
They should be banned, and replaced by leaf VACUUMERs (electric only) that remove the leaves and debris.
