    We were at the DQ on Highway 2 in Monroe last week (not that close to here, I know), and they had cherry dipped cones, as well as the butterscotch. I didn’t end up getting one, so I can’t vouch for the quality of the coating. :-)

    North Delridge is developing nicely and would welcome another new business.

    I feel like I came in in the middle of something. What is this in reference to?

    Where, specifically, will the new Route 50 stop on Delridge/Genesee? Any maps I’ve seen haven’t shown where the stops are.

    Thank you for the thorough mathematical analysis, Owen! :-) My husband and I both enjoyed it very much.

    We applied for our 5-year-old daughter to go there. So there will be at least two girls, StringCheese! :-)

    I believe you can get knives sharpened at the JF Henry kitchen/china store at the Junction.

    I know you don’t want any comments, but I’m just looking for clarification. What does “play date” mean in this context? A play date for the cats?

    The Junction Santa is fantastic; we’ve gone every year. And Donna takes beautiful pictures!

    Well, GenHillOne, it was a minute well spent. :-) I agree with you.

    I did think it sounded familiar, GenHillOne, but I didn’t make that extra effort to do the research you did. Very interesting!

    Why don’t you just have her invite a couple of close friends for a movie and dinner, or a slumber party? You’ll save yourselves a lot of aggravation by not trying to make a massive production of it. Surely her close friends would RSVP, and if not, you’d know how to contact the parents to follow up.

    Hi GrizGuy,

    So your primary concern is the high school your toddlers will eventually be assigned to? There is no guarantee that the SPS will have the same system for assigning children to schools in 12 years, nor that the schools themselves will have the same demographics/programs/etc., so I think you’d be better off looking at the elementary schools they’d be assigned to. The system as it stands now is that kids are assigned to a school based on their home address. You can type in any address here to find out what its assigned schools are: http://district.seattleschools.org/modules/cms/pages.phtml?sessionid=7a9ed1ad11febb6950ac593daf5e698b&pageid=172265&sessionid=7a9ed1ad11febb6950ac593daf5e698b

    I think people are discussing choosing a school because some people go private, some are choosing where to live based on the school their kids would go to, and some are interested in alternative programs. The SPS has some schools that no one is assigned to because their programs differ from the norm in some way. Parents have to apply to them.

    Hope that helps.

    KFC seems to hire morons exclusively. They couldn’t get my order right in Monterey, California, either. It was not complicated.

    Happywalker: What era are you talking about? I know Tervo’s was in the same place it is now in the late ’70s. I believe Meredith’s dime store was in the area where Great Harvest is now.

    I have had an onion bialy at the Cupcake Royale in the Junction. Not sure what bakery it came from–maybe Macrina?

    JoB, I have some comments for you.

    Regarding your statement, “the public perception of marauding dogs randomly attacking children on the street is nothing more than sensationalism created by the news media”: my husband was severely bitten by an unknown pit bull while running through the park by Delridge Community Center last May. He had no connection whatsoever to the dog’s owner, and did nothing to provoke the dog. He merely passed within a few feet of it.

    Other people have posted to these forums in recent months with similar experiences.

    Regarding your comment, “but the story you tell about your pitbull sounds more like an aberration than a breed characteristic”: One of the receptionists at the Swedish Hospital Emergency room told us that she had a pit bill she lovingly raised from puppyhood, only to have it bite a chunk out of the leg of a person visiting her home, also with no provocation.

    I can’t understand why you won’t let this drop. Not every pit bull is dangerous, but many of them are, and they can turn vicious with no warning. There is no need to keep defending them.

    Angelescrest, he is OK now, but he has a giant scar on his arm, which was torn open by the dog. Thanks for asking.

    Semele, correct on all counts!

    The point here is that Todd was bitten by a loose cannon pit bull, which he described, and people should be aware that this dog is in the area and may attack someone else. The point is not whether all pit bulls are evil. My husband was the jogger in the attack Jissy described on the other thread, and I strongly suspect it’s the same dog. Again, Todd, please ask the blog administrators for my e-mail address if you would like to compare notes.

    Todd, my husband had a similar experience at Delridge Community Center a couple of months ago. If you would like to talk to him about it, please have the blog administrators give you my e-mail address, and we can arrange something. It would be interesting to try to determine if it’s the same dog.

    Delridge is an untapped market. Consider North Delridge! You should see all the cars going up and down all day long, not to mention the buses full of people. Put in a tasty restaurant, and I’m sure you will have customers lining up! Those of us who live in the area would appreciate more restaurants we can walk to.

    Delridge also needs good connections to the Junction and the rest of West Seattle. I was very sorry that the plans for the new bus route (I think it was going to be Route 50) linking the Junction to Delridge and I think Beacon Hill fell through last summer. Anyone know if that might get revived?
