    Raccoons are real bastards. I’m not afraid to say that.They kill cats and can make a real mess of things.

    Aren’t Netscape and Firefox/Mozilla the same thing?

    I saw that too. Sometimes our braniums get their wires crossed. One time I wanted to go to Barolo for dinner with a friend I work with. He kept forgetting where, finally he said he didn’t have his bathing suit with him. His brain was thinking Banya 5!! Lolz.

    Universal background checks is pretty controversial once you leave the liberal enclave zone.

    I have taken that left turn onto University from 2nd hundreds of times during rush hour and fail to see what’s so tough about checking the bike lane before turning.

    I also wonder how moving the bike lane will make it safer. Cars will have to cross bike lanes no matter where the bike lanes are.

    Mine was hit Wednesday night in the 80 block of 26th. Broken window, stolen stuff…the usual.

    The more I learn about this, the more I am a no. It’s also really expensive.

    I guess I don’t think one needs a church to be “fun,” community-minded” or “contemporary.” As a lifelong atheist, I’ve never felt any of those things were lacking in my life.

    Thanks. I rather like the way Jimmy Rustler puts it as well. No words required.

    ‘Here in the Seattle area, we do not start churches to reach the “churched,” but instead to reach those who are at the heart of a very secular, post-modern society.’

    …or as we here like to call it, “utopia.”

    No thanks on more churches. We like our post-modern secular society just the way it is. :)

    VB, were you at the FM today? I wanted to say hi but you were busy.

    Just a warning though–that coffee table was AT LEAST 30 hours. I did it as a therapy projrct last fall when my dad was diagnosed with cancer.

    If you want to go darker, a good safe choice is Watco Danish Oil in the walnut finish. I did the one in my avatar picture in the clear version and keep it looking rich with Wax n Feed. Came out great.

    Oh…stripping. Use Jasco. Scrape what you can with a plastic scraper. Then use a green scrubby saturated with lacquer thinner. Keep doing this til all the finish is gone. Then when it’s all clean, go over it with mineral spirits or denatured alcohol to get the residues off. A plastic bristle brush can help with nooks and crannies. Best of luck.

    Mr. Burgh is right about tight-grained hardwoods. One of my refinish projects was a walnut Lane Acclaim side table. Even using a pro-grade deep-penetrating dye stain, it was VERY difficult to get even coverage.

    My best advice is to bring the table up to Rockler and look at it with them. It’s really easy to screw up this type of project.

    Totally also happening in Loyal Heights. Tons of car prowls, garage intrusions, and strange ppl in alleys.

    Kinda like when I used to live by the car wash…..

    And….right on 15th–one of the busiest streets in the city. They should cater to people who are hard of hearing.

    That’s just wrong. Sorry to hear that.

    You can make offers on things that are overpriced at Ballard GW. I bought a credenza there just last week that was priced a bit too high.
    They accepted my offer. :)

    No way. Did you ever work on the ground covering stuff for Microsoft Company Meeting? I was the show lead on that for…8? years, starting the first or second year we did the event there. I worked closely with Bob on how to protect the field, and Leo and I were homies since we’re both from Tacoma.

    Rudy, you worked for them? Do you know Bob and Leo on the grounds crew? I worked with them for several years on a MSFT event.

    I think Cynthia Tewes (fka Lauren Tewes) of Love Boat fame lives here too. I can’t think of any other Hollywood types off the top of my head who live here. Tom Skerrit’s niece, Jessica, is a local actress who is in a lot if Village and 5th Avenue shows. She’s an absolute doll. I love working with her.
