apparently I still have a login. :)
Hey VB, most are still lurking, but far less frequent as you can see by how often posts are updated here. :)
The technical issues that plague this forum are what has killed it. The weeks long outage was the death blow I think. Also inability to login, servers down, and weird things like pre-populating tags…for instance, on this reply in the “Tags” box below are ‘space time continum (sic)’ and ‘time machine’. I didn’t put those there, but they’ll probably be attached to this forum post.
I joined this forum a few weeks after its inception. My user id was ’20’…those were the days of seeing dozens of new posts and discussions that were seconds old. Now the latest replies are from days or even weeks ago. I’ll still check in from time to time, but largely this forum has been left unkempt way too long to survive.
Sorry about that Mondo…let’s see if this image link works:
I’ll chime in on the Navien. I have had mine for 4 years or so and have had no issues. It did throw an error code the other day for “blocked intake” which means “clean the air filter”. You just rinse it off, dry it and put it back. In 4 years that has been the only issue. Now I’ve added an annual reminder to clean the filter. There is also a filter on the bottom at the water intake which should also be cleaned.
Again, simple maintenance and it’s been a champ. The re-circulation scheduling is awesome. Instant hot water every morning I take a shower.
I was watching the news this morning and they had a reported there to show the signals. Within about a minute, a car turned left without the green arrow. As the reporter said, this is pretty dangerous…people need to be educated he turned back to point out the signals and a cyclist went flying through when the ‘cyclist red light’ was showing. So within about 2 minutes there were two dangerous moves by cars and bikes alike.
Be careful riding there as people still don’t understand the rules.
Jimmy, there once was a ton of useful reviews of the area restaurants, but when they changed forum software (the time before this last time) the review commentary went away but the star ratings remain: http://www.myballard.com/restaurants/
I don’t really think there is much wrong with the timing of his yard-work, it just wasn’t convenient for you that day. I think the dust/dirt is lame and is where you could ask him to water down the dirt as he tills it so you aren’t forced to close your windows (especially on a hot night).
Having young kids I wished my neighbor on the corner wouldn’t decide to mow his parking strip at 8:30 at night but I just live with it because unfortunately he only mows once a month. ;)
I would try to engage your neighbor to understand what he is doing/trying to do. It may be organized chaos and understanding what he’s doing might help the situation (for you).
but they would likely need two vessel assist boats based on the conditions
I think they did have two vessel assist boats. It looks like one is behind them with a second line while the one in front was demonstrating brute force.
Man, they really got that thing stuck up in there. That sounded REALLY expensive…but kudos to the guys who got them out of there. I thought it was going to roll there for a second.
All great responses. It might just be the phase of life (toddler-hood) I’m in right now that makes dives seem not “worth it” as I don’t get out much anymore. (@Edog, I never enjoyed confession in grade school)
@earldanger that’s kind of what I was thinking. I also think that perhaps the lure of cheap(er)/stiff(er) drinks at the expense of food poisoning is worth it to some.
So what seems to qualify as a dive bar is:
- 10+ years of neglect
- Food that you are scared to eat
- Third-world bathrooms
Serious question: So what’s the appeal of a dive bar?
Here you go gracie:
Jimmy I think that the inspiration was to reveal the fact that Lou Creesha is in fact Dan Kennedy.
people who like to set off fireworks usually LOVE to set off fireworks
If you LOVE fireworks, you must HATE your fingers/limbs.
Last night a little after 9:00 in East Ballard/Lower Phinney there was a LOUD boom. 3-5 minutes later there was a fire truck on scene…5 minutes after that one of those AMR ambulances. Hopefully that’s one household that learned their lesson.
Hope-less Solo just continues on her trainwreck in her personal life. I don’t see things ending well for her. Shame as she’s such a gifted athlete.

Dave, you could get one of those locking mailboxes that would help keep your mail safe when it’s towards the street.
So, any tricks to get crows to stop pooping on my car? Can you talk to your crows to spread the word to other crows to knock that off?
Worst possible outcome. :(
Typically for those events I would come in before and help lay down those interlocking white panels (which were a PIA) but wouldn’t stick around for much more than that. I guess it’s possible our paths could have crossed a long time ago.
I do know Bob and Leo. They came on board shortly after I started there. I was on the grounds crew. :)
Penny is right. The last playoff appearance for the Mariners was in 2001. That was also the last year I worked for them… so you can blame me for this 13 year slump.
