    Consider the US in 1776.

    Well Jimmy you know how so many here want a waitress or waiter or sales clerk to be their friend. Lots of whining over that on this site.

    Pay $15 and tip of you want is a perfectly good solution. Is it forbidden to make MORE than $15? Also NO reporting of tips please.

    Since allison is ‘blasting’ I assumed she had a rocket.

    Yes plastic times have completely changed and yes if you work you should be able to cover your bills. Why on earth does that offend you?

    Protest marches do nothing. Anarchy accomplishes things.

    Hmmm odd that you might think what I post means the opposite. Did you perhaps get a psych degree from Home Shopping Club?

    I don’t believe that it is possible to offend me. I do however offend myself with double posting and terrible spelling. It’s called not paying attention.

    Saff I doubt you will understand but here goes. There are many things I do not like in which I still participate. I loathe the way we work today but still work. I like to eat you see and prefer to live with a roof over my head.
    Communication has suffered terribly over the years. Too many people fear speaking out other than in anonymous forums so I frequent them. A case was recently won against a large hospital that attempted to force employees to act only in a ‘positive’ manor and never say anything bad about their place of work.
    Sadly people today will not talk about much of anything anymore except the inane and mundane. Seattle is one of the worst places for that in the country. It’s now considered politically incorrect to talk about something that might upset someone else. I can’t understand that sort of thinking at all. Really I suppose it is NOT thinking. It’s following. Seattle has become one paranoid places to live and work.
    The definition of tolerance has been bastardized into the idea that we can never question others. I have no issue with whatever you choose to do or think but I also reserve the right to tell you that I think you’re wrong. People today NEED to be challenged to think. Unless there is communication they never will. Since the internet is really the only communication going, I involve myself. I would prefer something different but one uses what exists.

    Ernie I never ask anyone to justify his or her existence. I just find techies obnoxious.

    Are we to assume then that you think this site is an improvement in my life?

    “Have been through 2 dot com busts, laid off hundreds ( if not thousands ) over the past 15 years.”
    “Yes, being 20 something and earning a decent wage with a decent future ahead of oneself may lend itself to some attitude issues.”
    And in the same post no less. TOOOOO funny.
    “old” Fremont consisted of rat infested, burn hazard abandoned warehouses, crappy bars and minimal job opportunities.”
    This is of course from the same person who is unable to find anything to eat at Safeway.

    I am trying very hard to think of anything in my ‘urban lifestyle” that is better due to techies. Can’t think of a thing.

    I appears that Matt is too young to remember the dot.com burst.

    There is a reason the amazon folks are called amholes by those who run service businesses in South Lake Union. Those in Fremont feel the same.

    My main issue is with the lack of creativity. It appears as if neo-seattlites are wearing a uniform.

    Ivar’s = no loss. Techies on the Canal = a nightmare.

    At its height around 1900 there were only about 30% Scandinavians in Ballard.

    I agree allison and we also never let our dogs run loose when I was young. Those who did had dead dogs.

    I am a native fashionista and would not wear any of the above mentioned garments, even to a dog fight.
    Sadly Seattle has become a fashion embarrassment. No creativity whatsoever in the population here.

    The brussel sprouts are small ones left from last winter. Way too early for freshly grown. Smart to call them ‘baby.’

    Good suggestion Shelly. I just did a search on Sears kits and it appears they also sold other styles, tudors and even a dutch colonial. Amazing that there was still a tudor called a craftsman. Why is that?


    briarrose

    The issue you face of course is that most houses that are called craftsman in Seattle by realtors are not, including the one pictured in the post above. Year built is not an indicator. Style is. Still, 1922 is pretty late for a craftsman house.

    Start with Arts and Crafts style and you will get a better idea than you will find in real estate listings.

    Of course Jonathan. We always ate at the Greenwood Mandarin and I am mid century. The Ballard Mandarin in some of the same people and we still eat there. I don’t recall it was any different when I was a kid. What’s changed in what we now order.

    Good idea Avacado. The whole ‘soy is good’ is basically the same as the garbage from the dairy industry. ” Milk is good food” Sure, if you are a baby cow.
