    Ditto oddreality. just uncalled for. If you have a pet door that is not secured then expect wildlife to come in DUH.

    Are you looking for perennials or annuals? I plant perennials and veggies in pots, try Geum, coleus, chocolate cosmos, creeping jenny, fuchsias, oriental lilies, dalhias, African daisy, bucoppa, impatiens omeiana, sedums, hebes, smoke bush, potato vine, tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, gosh the list is endless! Some local nurseries to check out are WS Nursery and Village Green Perennial Nursery. Just go out and explore!

    a favorite saying when we lost one of our beloved kids:

    Animals never belong to us, they pass through our lives on journeys of their own. They ask no more of us than that we love them and let them go on in dignity and peace.

    Animals come and go with lessons to learn and lessons to teach. So, we love them and learn. We accept the pain of their going as we received the joy of their coming. All of it is a blessing.

    With condolences for your loss

    most likely a barge with a heavy load and cranes on top would be my guess from watching the waters above Alki the past 20 plus years….Subs going to and from Bangor are out in the shipping lanes.

    is she chipped? please do not give up hope, the WSB is a great platform to get lost pet info out to the WS public. We live above Schmitz Park and will certainly keep an eye out for her! Hoping you have a happy reunion soon, and remember to check all local vets, animal shelters and animal control frequently.

    Katie,

    Where did you see it? It could have been a barge with cranes on it as well. Not seeing anything in the west sound…

    I guess as long as it is not in the night sky we are OK ;-)

    Cardoons and artichokes are both part of the thistle family. I grow both from seed and have enjoyed them in our yard as ornamentals for years. while the artichoke “flower” is edible before it blooms, cardoons are not but many use cardoon leaf stalks in cooking (think celery). I just grow both as ornamentals in the garden and if you mulch around them in the fall they will usually come back the next year unless we have a severe Seattle winter. Cardoons are much taller plants than artichokes and the blossoms are slightly different looking.

    Wow, happy 4th of July. Sorry this happened HH, but don’t let it ruin your day. Some people’s kids will never learn no matter how old they get.

    As a practicing Luddite, I have heard that those debit card machines steal your soul. but seriously, I use both debit and checks at grocery stores/Costco, but if using check I fill out all info other than amount in advance so my check writing actually takes less time than debit card. Now if the store clerks can’t feed the check into their machine thingy properly, well that is not my fault! ;-)

    Hi Patrick!

    Matt Bay at WS Window Cleaner (and one of your sponsors) does this. We have used him for window cleaning and he does a great job and is very conscientious about his work.

    JayDee,

    The funny thing is I think I finally got through to an Aussie in customer service today to try and get the ball rolling. The Seattle billing numbers will leave you just wanting to break out the gin very early in the day. the sad thing is, the electronics that report gas usage have a finite battery life and when the battery or electronics go screwy we are up the proverbial creek based on my interactions with PSE this last month and their trying to deal with the “new systems”. Not an excuse in my book, test them first,train your people before implementing those changes.

    Thansen,

    The electronics that report the meter readings need a new battery or entire replacement. customer service is clueless. if you have called in about your erroneous bill, and PSE reps have bothered to actually enter the info to your account notes then try this number 1-866-767-5853 and press option 2. Good luck. I think they have a lot of batteries expiring/electronics needing replacement but theirQC and customer service leaves a lot to be desired. And read your meter and document, document all your calls.

    Yup but when I told hubby about it when he called in today he called back with a number that is not listed on the billing statement and said to call them to get meter repair.WellI did and got a great customer sevice rep ( after about 10 minutes on Muzak hold) but she is going to put in a request for service tomorrow and will follow up with me so we should get meter repaired first part of next week and then if that happens billing might get their head out of you know where and send an accurate, corrected bill. time will tell…..

    And the thing is the people who respond to the numbers listed on your bill are infuriating and clueless and PSE departments (billing, customer service, repair )don’t seem to be communicating with each other to resolve customer complaints, very sad.

    And an extra special shout out to our stellar employee Kawika who, while I was walking and my hubby was driving around the hood looking for Gus, got in his truck and was the one to find Gus and walk him back home!!!
