For Hallowween I am having a well rounded meal. The first course, to start the evening, The Hound of Baskerville – a ghostly Sherlock Holmes tale. Just finished the main course – We Have Always Lived in the Castle – Shirley Jackson’s story of Merricat, a sweet 14 year old girl who practices sympathetic magic and is one of the most demonic characters in American literature. I’ll finish the evening with my homemade limoncello and The Masque of the Red Death – a Poe story chosen because of its foretelling of the Ebola Crisis. I do love a good scary story.
It took 18 years to build Mars Hill and then it went from being the darling of the New York Times to disbanded in a little under a year. What is amazing is how fast the money vanished; the article makes it sound as if they can’t make the final payroll. I imagine a forensic accountant will need to be brought in to sort through the mess that is left behind. I sincerely hope that Mark Driscoll did not receive any type of payout when he left.
Maybe if you would post something on the front page to let people know your back up?
Shelley – the plan is to sell the property and have Mars Hill lease it back. I can’t imagine any potential buyer wanting to enter into a lease back arrangement with them. Their current finances/diminishing congregation doesn’t speak to their being able to make the lease payments. It was just a year or so ago that they were trying to buy the piece of land over in Bellvue and offering to pay $250,000 over what anyone else offered. It appears they were operating off of hubris for quiet awhile.
BOC – Where did you here that? Only two days in? That can’t be right!
I like Ballard, I often can get a lane to myself. Olympic Athletic
Club is great – the new lap pool is good and it’s salt water instead of chlorine (easier on the eyes)
SalmonBay – Funny you mention the Ballard Bridge. Several months ago I asked my son what were the most dangerous places to ride in Seattle. He listed three. Second Avenue, the Ballard Bridge and 12th Ave. by Seattle University (apparently SU students parking on 12th have a habit of dooring bicyclists as they rush to class). I won’t ride across the Ballard Bridge – its either the Locks or way-laying over to the Fremont Bridge.
GAM – is Ballard home base as in Driscoll (still) lives in Ballard? I thought when they moved the headquarters to Bellevue that he went too.09/05/2014 at 9:18 pm in reply to: What was with that plane that just went over my house? #72598
What Edog said. The world has been a lot more insecure this last month, two months. And we live by one of the larger military bases so not surprising to hear/see random bits of war machinery from JBLM.
Honest question. Has any team ever one back to back Superbowls?
The link didn’t work for me. So according to Seattle Bike Blog the memorial ride starts at five o’clock at Westlake Park. At five thirty there is a memorial service at Benaroya Plaza on 2nd AV. The ride concludes with a ride down the rest of Second to Occidental Park. It will be concluded just about the time the construction of the new bike lane starts at seven thirty. To open on Monday, ten days too late.09/01/2014 at 3:16 pm in reply to: Lost dog! Small grey/white NW 64th st 8th-9th ave NW #72244
So glad a kind soul helped her out and got her to the vet. I love her button nose. It goes (almost) without saying but fix the backyard fence so she won’t go walkabout again.
Realtime is a Seattle Fire Department website that lists every call that the fire department has responded to that day. What time, which vehicles responded, the address they are responding to and the reason. I check it every night before I go to bed to get a feel for what went on in the city that day. Just goggle seattle fire department real time.
They auto corrected phoo to Ohio. How very peculiar
Ohio and GAM. I am just barely west of 24th on 57th and was not affected The QFC on the east side of 24th wasn’t affected either. Strange.
Realtime shows that there was a car fire with explosion over at 3rd NW and NW 65th at 8:49. Might have something to do with it if it took out a feeder line.
Odd. I’m in Central Ballard. But haven’t lost power (but the SCL map says I have.). The QFC and the Commons both still have power too.
Beyond sad. My son (who has no car but five bicycles) considers 2nd AV to dangerous to ride in the current bike lane. He takes the traffic lane instead. But he is strong and fast enough to do that; not all bicyclists are.
Mopeds have to be registered as a motorcycle…but looking at that picture I am wondering if this is scooting in as a motorized bicycle. Back in the day I had a friend with a gasoline powered bicycle that did not need to be registered (kind of like today’s e-bikes). I’m kind of thinking its an artist just because it is so public. Edited to add that mopeds have to be registered for on street use. If they never go on the streets not needed, or soy beach friends tell me.
Apostasy? That’s what I thought you meant (but a little confused as to how you would you use it with a client. Perhaps they are renouncing their life of clutter?).
I getcha, I think. But it’s my observation that threatened Alpha males often take it out on their pride rather then risk losing a fight with another Alpha male wannabe. (Does wannabe have one or two ‘e’s?). OF course it is always possible that she is an Alpha Female.
Edog – you may well be right but the most likely victim would probably not file a complaint if he did assault her.
Geez you scared me, I thought you meant Lilly. (although I am sure Jake means just as much to his owners).
My son, a child of the eighties, likes a lot of the music you do so don’t count yourself a dinosaur quite yet. (Johnny Cash, Kristofferson, Hendrix, Joplin all have a place in his rotations)
I don’t know about gifts but I’d sure like the name of your dentist!
