A Home for MAX. On the way back from Seattle the other day I stopped by Boeing in Renton to get a few photos to use in my blog. I’m excited about all the Boeing news of late, its many new contracts for planes, and the decision to build the 737 MAX and 900 here at the Renton plant. This will be a ...

A friend recently thought he was going to have to replace his entire roof in his home in Renton WA as well as re-do the trusses due to very visible sags in his roof. Upon further investigation it was found that there had been a fire in the attic of this home which predated his ownership. Why this...

I’m so glad it’s June again and the Renton Farmers Market of 2012 is here! I so look forward to local fresh vegetables and fruit. I’ve had to re-train myself from my usual winter grocery shopping habits on the weekend, “no, don’t buy it now. Tuesday is market day! The Renton Farmers Market runs f...

Wednesday evening I attended a local real estate networking get together in downtown Renton with several local brokers, lenders, and others. We met at the Berliner Pub on Main Street. If you love German food and beer, you’ll love this place! Big plate sized pretzels fresh from the oven, sausages ...

Many months ago Renton citizens voted on whether or not they would prefer to continue to be saddled with the costs of running their own library – which was becoming quite costly – or to join the King County Library System. They voted for joining King County but there has been vocal opposition fro...

Cruising the Loop... Back in the day (and I’m seriously dating myself here), Friday and Saturday night was about cruising the loop. We’d head downtown Renton when the weather was good, especially in the summertime to join in on what was happening on the street. Oh my, I can hear our Mayor and the...

I discovered Anne Boyington of Trevani Truffles at the Renton Farmers Market a few weeks ago. The business was born out of a family passion for making homemade chocolate truffles. For several years the recipes were only enjoyed by the family and close friends around the holidays. But son Troy and...

Homes on acreage in Renton, WA are not as plentiful as they might be in other,  more outlying, areas of King County.  But if you're looking for the convenience of being located within 11-12 miles of downtown Seattle, and are hoping for a little more than a small patch of green....there is hope. C...

My wife and I recently bought play kitchens for the two youngest grandchildren (two separate families - hence two kitchens). Today my wife received a call from the 3 yr old and on speaker phone he is telling my wife thank you for the kitchen that the mail truck brought. My wife says, “I’m so glad...

Hello everyone: I hope you had a nice weekend! I was honored to be a volunteer judge at Sartori School last Friday. I can still remember every graduating senior who partipated. A little background is needed. Sartori is the alternative to regular school. This is my second year judging the student'...

Social Media changed. The wide open frontier is gone. Now it’s a great big densely populated medium that’s busy, noisy and chaotic. Yet those who attract (and don’t push) are winning. To me, Google’s Penguin algorithm update is a wonderful thing. Those who jumped in with an immediate strategy to...

Brand Loyalty We didn't have new cars in our family growing up. Dad bought used cars through his network of friends. The very first car I can remember was a black late model 1940's Ford Coupe. I was 3 or 4 years old and we were on our way home from Grandma and Grandpa's one day when I lost my Ted...

Three Womannequins I was downtown Renton Friday morning to meet with my friend Gary for coffee. Afterwards I strolled along S 3rd St, the main drag in old downtown with my trusty iPhone 4s and heavily armed with my new Olloclip (add on) lense looking for subjects. Along this block there are sever...

Met my friend Gary for coffee this morning at the Liberty Cafe. I confess, I’ve driven by a thousand times but haven’t stopped. Meant to, but haven’t. Well... this morning I’m glad we did. It’s just a tiny little indie place in old downtown Renton. I left so happy just knowing a place like this s...
