    My dearest SeattleCandyCo, Shame on me? Shame on you! I read your entire novella on homelessness and it was very clear that you stated “a guy I talked to said. . . ” My point was that I have sympathy and compassion for the plight of the homeless but when an individual has a response of random vandalism based on a slight from a local resident (real or perceived) I lose my sympathy. I wasn’t implying anything about YOU. I’m still not sure what your point is but I do know you pay $60 a month for your gym membership but you haven’t been in 3 years, you own an RV, you were robbed. You go on about 72 hour parking rules and hidden security cameras. What point are you trying to make? Is this story about you or about RVs or parking or homeless people or hidden cameras or the gym? If you’re just venting your frustrations that’s fine but I’m not your enemy.

    You totally lost me when you said “every time someone harasses us, we go out at night and break about 10 cars windows.” THAT makes my blood boil. I have no sympathy for someone with that attitude.

    Welcome to West Seattle! Despite what aa says this is a pretty awesome place to live. Unfortunately I can’t offer school advice that is relevant anymore as all my data points would be many years old.

    Please post if you find a reliable resource for grinding. It’s my understanding that any discontinuity over 1/2 inch should be repaired and that any height differences greater than 1 inch (which isn’t much) can not be ground down as that affects the integrity and strength of the cement. If it can’t be ground down then it is supposed to be replaced. The city of Seattle has a pretty good .pdf file called “Client Assistance Memo (CAM) 2208” that explains it all and even has pictures. I completely understand that you’ve already determined you need to take action – I’m just providing this information to others that may not know.

    I’d be thrilled to have the paper waiting for me when I woke up! Last week our Sunday paper came on Monday. But Vanessa is right. Why was this 8 year old thread resurrected with a comment from someone that has only posted one comment in the history of the blog? This spam stuff amazes me.

    So I’ll have to buy and register a car just to get gas to put in my weed eater, lawn mower, boat, jetski or snowmobile? So if I’m hauling a licensed and registered snowmobile behind my truck with expired tabs you’re going to have the attendant monitor me to make sure I only put fuel in the licensed vehicle and not the unregistered one? I am pretty sure that the folks that voted for $35 tabs AND the outspoken folks that weren’t too happy about mask and vaccine mandates aren’t going to be too hip on having to follow directions from a 21 year old 7-11 clerk at 2 in the morning.

    I think your creative problem-solving energy might be better placed at trying to get folks to have actual readable license plates that aren’t covered with dark plastic, bike racks or missing entirely – at least that way they’d have to actually pay tolls when driving in the HOV lanes.

    Stupid spammers resurrecting a post from 10 years ago. I hope they step on a pile of Legos in the middle of the night.

    I find it so strange that threads from 8 years ago are resurrected simply for a roofing contractor to post some meaningless drivel in an attempt to do something. I’m not sure what jennifermorgan is up to but it seems so very odd. What’s the point?

    Be careful fellow WSBers. It appears Hamed resurrected a 12+ year old thread in order to post the link above. I didn’t click on it so it could actually be legitimate but I doubt it. VCRs were a thing of the past twelve years ago. Anyway, just trying to prevent a scam. Carry on.

    It’s very interesting that this post is from 2008. Not sure if it’s even valid anymore. EB Foote Winery appears to have closed permanently some time ago.

    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.
