    It has been interesting to read these comments. I realize the demographics of The Junction have changed in the last few years. The concentration of younger adults means the businesses must consider that market when stocking merchandise, etc.

    I have seen the “edgy?” items in NW Art and Frame before. But, yesterday it appeared to be a larger stock of items and more of them what I consider rude for public display.

    What is offensive to one is not to another. For merchandise in a store that sells to all ages this was my limit.

    I, too, agree with tiser. Made my first visit to the Burien store last week and was very disappointed. Quite unhappy that several items I find at Columbia City were not available. Not to mention the poor meat department. If the new WS PCC is like Burien’s, I will continue to travel to CC for our shopping!!

    Thank you for the suggestion, AlkiKmac. I’ll give this a try. My first try in a class a few years ago was discouraging. Supposedly, a beginner’s class, but still too much for me.

    For anyone who is interested, Chris Kimball has started a new magazine called Milk Street. Web site is http://www.177milkstreet.com/magazine/ I subscribed, but have not received my first copy.

    JBT–
    I’m getting rid of my “collection” to declutter. But, you are correct. I decided to stop the magazine once Chris Kimbal left. His editorials were wonderful and I miss them. I also will miss reading the science behind the recipes. Always fascinating.

    Woke up at 1:30 to the sound. Assumed it was the ferry. Checked the schedule — there is a boat that leaves Vashon at 2:10 a.m. Makes the landing time at Fauntleroy around 2:30. But, could have been later because of the fog! It was loud.

    Fitzpatrick’s Interiors did a fabuloous job on my couch and love seat.

    I so agree with Hannah. It took me a bit longer than three sessions, but, when I started seeing David I was unable to walk into a grocery store. Now I’m to able to walk over two miles. Still working on gaining more.

    Highly recommend Wiseman’s. Local business. Very reliable. If you need to contact them, a simple phone call is all it takes. No multiple phone trees nor call centers based who knows where. Gave up on Sears several years ago whem I wanted call the local store. It was impossible. Long waits on hold and then ended up talking to someone in Florida! They were unable to address my concern nor could they connect me with anyone who could.

    I agree with kayo. We have been with Goddard Financial Planning for seven years. Fee based, no products to sell. Really listen to what your goals are and your level of risk. Highly recommend them.

    miws– thank you for the source to contact if this continues.

    bellejax– the same thought came to mind this morning on my way to Morgan Junction. I saw workers on the roof of the school.

    I just noticed this morning that one Shasta daisy plant had been cut to the ground. This was from a spot along our road and not visible from the house. Also have had several bamboo canes taken in the past. Would be nice if they had just asked.

    I highly recommend Fitzpatrick’s. Had my couch and love seat reupholstered last year. it is beautiful. Both were structurally sound, just faded and “cat shredded.” They are a local business.

    Dr. Brian McKillop, Eye Associates Northwest. You could find some who might charge less, but he is excellent.

    Some one claiming to be with the United States Mission came to our door last night. My husband answered the door and quickly said, No Thanks. (We live in the Gatewood area). Tonight I looked them up on the web after reading the above comments. The search resulted in an article about KIRO doing an investigative feature on this group in 2010. “Homeless Charity Mandates Panhandling, Takes Big Cut.” The organization sued KIRO for defamation. They lost the case. Here is the lead to the article. ” A KIRO Team 7 Investigation into door-to-door fund raising by the United States Mission prompts King County to sever ties with the program. But the charity’s troubles might not end there.Last month we revealed how the self-proclaimed church recruits felons, some with violent criminal histories, to live in their transitional housing program, and then go panhandling as a group into your neighborhoods.”

    I saw a TED talk video by her at the start of 2012. (a google search will find it.) I bought the book Minding My Mitochondria (expensive).I do not have MS, but have been struggling with my health since 2010. Since February I’ve followed a gluten free, dairy free and soy free diet for about 95% of the time. It takes a lot of time to do the cooking and she is definitely a fan of organic which translates to $$$. Reading the book was worthwhile. She gives scientific evidence when it is available and is very clear when it isn’t. I’ve found many great recipes in her book, although the directions are sometimes not clear. So, has it been effective for me? Yes. With using this diet and seeing an acupuncturist, for the past year, I am doing so much better than a year ago. Bottom line– try to find a copy of her book, read it, and decide if you think it would help.

    Don’t forget the hundreds of apartments that have been built and the hundreds on the drawing board.

    It all adds up to more traffic.

    Munchkin22–

    Thank you for the response. I’ll call the number and find out where to deliver the canned goods. Happy to know they are still useful.
