    What’s a CTR Ring? Is that a birth control device?

    I agree 100%. Expert Electric is a West Seattle Blog sponsor and has helped us with projects on two different occasions. We are quite satisfied.

    Very thought-provoking question. I guess the only person that could answer would be someone that paints and places stones in public places. I do know that members of my family were given some painted rocks and they were placed in our yard by the sidewalk to make people smile as they walk by. They lasted about a week until someone took them. My wife was sad.

    Hi Emu1121, you already posted this exact same concern previously about Origins. WSB responded that they have a valid curbside permit and have had one for months yet you’re posting again with the same concern. Are you looking for a different answer, just venting or what? I just searched for “Seattle curbside pickup permit process” and found a bunch of information including:

    Interested in having a Curbside Priority Pick-Up Zone near your business? Here’s what you need to know:

    Businesses can call or email 684-ROAD to request a Curbside Priority Pick-Up Zone. They should provide business name, address and contact information.

    Staff will review requested locations to make sure a new zone will fit within the nearby curb regulations. Generally, we will install one new zone per block, so it may need to be located where it can serve several stores on the block.

    Curbside Priority Pick-Up Zone signs are not assigned to specific businesses, and can be used among several businesses along the block.

    I hope this answers your questions.

    Sorry kroberts, how do you hear tone in the written word? You are a very lucky person to only get one call like this per year. My comment was not meant to be condescending at all. I am just frustrated that calls like this for me never end and now they start earlier in the day (7:00 am) and go later into the evening (10:00 pm). And they often mask them to look like they are local calls. You are indeed lucky that it is a rarity for you and I thank you for informing others. Peace.

    You don’t get 3 or 4 of these a day and just ignore them? I receive more of these scams than I do real calls. Pretty easy to spot.

    in reply to: Using the Lower Bridge for medical emergency #998034

    I think the fine is $72. I could be wrong, because whatever it is, I don’t plan on violating the lower bridge rules. BUT, with that being said, $72 is about 100X less expensive than an ambulance ride. I’d gladly pay that in a heartbeat. AND, I suspect that if you did get a ticket for a documented medical emergency (not just because you were late to your COVID-19 test appointment) you’d have a good shot at getting it dismissed.

    I just think it is awesome that DeniseM is able to provide disparaging remarks about both Alki Mail that she uses for convenience (or used to use) AND the “severely dysfunctional” USPS that she continues to use to save a few bucks. Hilarious. Pay more to FedEx and ship your items through them and your problem is solved.

    Yes! Touring ops are great out of both places in the winter! You can easily dawn patrol out of either of them.

    You should ALWAYS, WITHOUT EXCEPTION, trust your life to a random, anonymous person on the internet that uses lots of CAPITAL LETTERS and has at best a little bit of an idea as to what you are talking about. ESPECIALLY if it’s completely unclear as to why you would post this question about ski areas in California on a blog based in West Seattle, Washington. I think your compass is broken – start with that.

    Hi Tyler, did you get enough magazines for your project? I may have some old LOOK or LIFE magazines from the mid-1900’s if you are interested. I actually found one from 1963 that mentioned the Christmas Ships in Seattle that, sadly, are cancelled this year.

    Rainy Pass Repair at 4415 Stone Way repairs tents and sleeping bags and such. They do a great job and their prices are reasonable. They are passionate about bringing damaged adventure equipment back to life. You could explain what you’re planning to do with your bags and they might (just a guess) help keep costs to a minimum. Pre-COVID-19 you could drop off and pick up at their facility. Not sure if they do that now. They are not exactly local (not West Seattle based)but they repair sleeping bag zippers on a daily basis and they have been in business for over 30 years.

    This is an awesome thread but I’m wondering why it popped up all of a sudden seven years after the initial post. . . .what’s up with that?

    By the way, I was getting ready to offer to help Phil out and I bet others were as well. West Seattle STILL rocks!

    Did you check to see if your headlights were on? The move that person made is exactly what I would do to make sure you were aware your headlights were off (if they were). Luckily you were not moving so your temporary blindness put nobody at risk.

    Yah, Michael Waldo you probably have to pay for healthcare and maybe you are paying back student loans or paying into a 401K to be able to retire some day since pensions are a thing of the past. Maybe you’re paying into a college fund for your kids or paying property taxes to support light rail and education. How dare you be so frivolous. How dare you live such a high maintenance lifestyle!

    Very interesting. It looks like the spammers have found another way to crack the code. Both chinachin and even the original post about rope from GeorgeMendes a year ago contain links that I’m not going to click. They also have never commented or posted on anything else, ever. Another sign that something is fishy. Maybe if we ignore this it will go away. I do applaud all the helpful comments about rope that likely were ignored. . . . .

    Very interesting. It looks like the spammers have found another way to crack the code. Stephanies’ comment has nothing to do with anything yet contains a link that I’m not going to click. “She” also has never commented or posted on anything else, ever. Another sign that something is fishy. Maybe if we ignore this it will go away.

    I don’t think Nikola Tesla suffers from Mysophobia – he died in 1943. Howard Hughes died in 1976 and Saddam died in 2006 so they’re probably not suffering from it at the moment either.

    In case you haven’t heard, the state of Washington is being used as a positive example of how to handle the virus. We have not activated the National Guard (unlike 29 other states) AND the governor limited groups to 50 people (unlike 14 other states that have limited gathering to 10-25 people). Things are bad, don’t get me wrong, but they aren’t as bad as you make it sound.

    Nearly two-thirds of respondents (62%) to a recent poll say the actions taken by individual states – which to this point have included school closures, bans on large gatherings and, in some cases, shelter-in-place directives – have been appropriate. One in four says states have not gone far enough in curbing the spread of the disease, while only 9% believes states have gone too far.

    So, once again, soarringcam, you’re in the minority with your obtuse views of society. It’s my guess that Governor Inslee is less afraid of dirt and germs, as you imply, and more afraid of the unnecessary death of his constituents. I’ll take that any day.

    I can offer a very nice fiberglass backboard and hoop. It has a hoop but no net and needs to be mounted to a post. It’s yours if you are interested.

    I am wondering what was so important that you had to go to the store two times in two days. . . . . and you felt ok taking the elevator with someone. Not sure that’s a “best practice” example of social distancing.

    I applaud your approach and out-of-the-box thinking. In reality, I am not crazy about the thought of “hugging and touching” some dude from the internet. I’ll save that for my family. I am taking this seriously but not so seriously that I need to move to a rural setting and quarantine myself for 14 days if I go to the store and practice safe social distancing/hygiene. Hopefully you can find other like-minded individuals (perhaps someone that has already built a bunker and has a year or two of food and TP saved up). I also would rather see posts like this that are taking this pandemic seriously than the posts that don’t. I would be interested to find out how many people are willing to consider this but in the end we’re probably not gonna end up being hugging and touching roomies, sorry.
