commented on Where Should I Buy a New Mattress?
We bought our mattress from Seattle Mattress in Ballard and it is perfectly fine. memory foam. Id never slept on memory foam before and it took a bit of getting used to. Hot in summer.
what I would do now is buy 2 extra long twins non-memory foam and then a king size 3" memory foam and mattress pad to keep the whole thing in order.

I occasionally smoked in HS and college, but really didnt at all thru my 30s and 40s.
At 50, I decided to give it a try again and have learned a lot about different strains and the effects I can expect. In all honesty, I dont want a mild buzz. I really like life in all its colors as is.
When I get high, I want to be f*cked up and at home. Forget it all for a while and have no real after effects other than my ribs hurting from laughing at stupid things.

Seriously, (and I realize how silly that word seems here) but what are we going to do about what seems to be a slow spiral to the break up of the US? Ive been reading a few histories about the breakups of the British Empire, the Roman empire, the USSR... none of them seem to match the idea of a large nation breaking down to different nation states.
commented on Census Data Indicates That Less Than Half of Seattle Residents Commuts Alone in Cars
Great numbers. I dont know Boston at all, but those other 3 cities have ROBUST public transportation. If I have to wait an hour for a bus during the day to get downtown or back, that is not robust public transport.
I would use buses/trains/lightrail every day if all the buses didnt go downtown then require transfers. it would take me over an hour to get to SCCA from Magnolia by bus, 25 mins by car.
maybe by the time they connect the light rail to Ballard, I will be retired.

I started reading Al Jazeera over a year ago when MSNBC went insane.
CNN bottomed out long ago and Fox is only for the Simpsons, their news is unreadable/watchable.

"Wow... That's not particularly apologetic, is it now, Diana? What did I tell you, sit down over at the table and type out a REAL aplology or you are going to have to patrol Pioneer Park again."
commented on If Only I Were Open-Carrying a Gun
If you carry a gun, you will rely on that gun eventually to settle something. because if you think you will just carry a gun and not use it I can only point out how Zimmerman that point is.
Stand your ground with a camera and your press pass, Dom. That is enough.
