Hey everyone!
A very scared yet very adorable little dog took shelter in my garage on the 4th of July. 
Did you loose your dog?Collapse )

Subject:Washington Decline to Sign Referendum 71
Security:Public

There is a signature drive for referendum 71 to eliminate the Domestic Partnership Expansion Law of 2009 in Washington state. The new law gives many of the rights of marriage to same-sex couples, without changing the current state definition.

Protect equal rights pledge to decline to sign referendum 71.

Subject:Questions Regarding Parent-Child Activities
Security:Public

Greetings! I just joined the community as part of my search for more activities that my daughter and I can do together. We currently live in Woodinville in that little corner on the map where Woodinville-Duvall Rd and Avondale meet. We've spent most of our time in Seattle (especially since we both go to school in the city), but this summer I won't be working and my daughter doesn't need to go to summer camp, so I'm looking for things to do together. This seems a rather difficult since most of the activities we're interested in are usually either for adults or children and not both. We're looking for resources specifically for:


  • Beginning ASL (American Sign Language)

  • Parent-Child Yoga

  • Knitting Group (a la Stitch 'n' Bitch)

  • And possibly beginning Mandarin (my daughter loves everything to do with China)


If you happen to know of language tutors or yoga/knitting groups in or around Redmond and Woodinville we could access easily by bus, I would love to hear from you.

I know it's early to be planning for the summer, but I usually don't plan for it until it's too late, and I don't want to spent our time exclusively playing video games.

On an aside, I do have a small budget to work with and can also provide services in trade: I'm a writer, editor, and Reiki Master for those who are interested.

Be well!

Subject:LA Fitness? Personal trainer?
Security:Public

Hey dudes. So I have a membership to LA Fitness; my work is across the street from the one in Renton, and I live near to the one in Bellevue. I am probably going to go in and see how their rates are to hire a personal trainer but, well, I figure I would also see if there were any regulars to the clubs here as well.

If you have a suggestion about a personal trainer (or are one yourself), that would be great too. Not sure if I want to train at Bellevue or Renton just yet.

About me:

22, professional female; vegetarian.
5'6, declared a mesomorph by my doctor.
168lbs, BMI is 30-32% or thereabouts.

I am pretty fit overall but have put on some fat since travelling and getting complacent (read: BORED). I also have a Nike sport kit for my ipod and did the Nike Human Race in November...anybody else around here do the same?

Thanks in advance.

Subject:Mill Creek Self Storage
Security:Public

For those of you up in the Mill Creek area, i highly recommend NOT using Mill Creek Self Storage. They claim to be one of the last places with managers on site. Well, i could live without their on-site managers. it's a husband and wife and i'm not sure which one is the bitchiest of the couple. It's not worth what they claim are the cheapest rates around. Just my 103-bucks-a-month-worth.

I was beginning to wonder if nothing ever happend in King County, since I never saw posts from here.

Then I realized I had forgotten to monitor the community. Shyah.

Anyhow, what's the best place to go on a Friday or Saturday night without having to go into Seattle or Tacoma? I'm talking Auburn/Kent/Federal Way. I need a new place to drag my friends to!

Subject:Washington Scenic Flights
Security:Public

Can anyone here recommend any good and *affordable* scenic flights in Seattle or anywhere in King County?  I was all set to make a reservation with Seattle Flight, Inc, when I noticed the tiny red print on the top of the page that said it was no longer in operation.

I've searched for other scenic flights that operate in the county, but all of them have outrageous pricing compared to what was on the Seattle Flight website ($81 for a 20 min flight, $150 for 40 mins, $195 for 60 mins).  Those rates are for three passengers.  Other flights I've looked at charge that much for a single rider, sometimes more.

If anyone has any recommendations, or can think of an alternative (this is for an anniversary), I would greatly appreciate it.

There was a power outage in Renton yesterday, blanketing a few city blocks in darkness (or as dark as a city can get at noon).  A transformer had exploded at the intersection of 12th and Union.

The cause?  A crow flew in to it.

Too bad he was a crispy critter or the health department could have tested him for West Nile. :P

Subject:Shopping
Security:Public

Although Southcenter may have a better selection of shops and department stores than the Supermall, I'm finding myself enjoying my shopping experience at the Supermall much more than at Southcenter.

Why?

Fewer teenagers.

Don't get me wrong, I didn't like being around teenagers even when I was a teen myself.
