First it was, I’m going to go blind from staring into the glaring monitor, then it was carpal tunnel from too many keyboarding hours. Then, I’m going to get fat and flabby from too much sitting. Then, it was tendinitis in my thumbs from too much texting on my cell phone. And now? It’s Popcorn Bra...

I had a great reminder today of life’s little wonders. I was driving through downtown Renton. It was just after school let out and the yellow buses were everywhere. As I made my way down Logan Ave S across the street from the Piazza the bus in front of me stopped. The doors pop open and a bunch o...

I'm really beginning to get how profound Google + is and one of my dear friends, Meri Walker, has really helped me. I'm thankful for the jumpstart... She shared a post titled, Critical Thinking Asylum with a funny remark that cracked me up. Meri asked the question: "I'm looking for comrades in th...

I was lost in thought about how much social media is changing. Cyberspace seems to be cluttered and noisy lately and I’m feeling the need to revamp. I’m thinking about this while I'm driving through downtown Renton during rush hour. My soundtrack is The Beatles, Abbey Road. Golden Slumber... “On...

I was helping a friend out last Saturday, but I’ll skip that story. We were at Hawthorn Stereo on Roosevelt Ave in Seattle so he could sell them some studio monitors to make rent. “Media says”... we’re recovering from this recession yet I know several friends that are having a hard time making en...

I had to make a run to the grocery store this afternoon. I’m out of just about everything, except canned food. I’ve been busy working on projects the last couple of weeks (and admittedly over obsessed about getting my laptop rebuilt because it got taken down with a lethal virus forcing me to opt ...

On this 10th anniversary of 9/11 I remember it like it was yesterday and I know exactly where I was and what I was doing when this terrible event took place. Hardly a memory has been engraved so deeply and clearly. For a guy like me who talks a lot about everything everywhere, I find it hard to a...

I think I’m getting a complex. The other day Foursquare was getting me down. Now I totally get the opportunity for fun and interaction with people via updating your location and it’s good for your SEO, but lately it’s choking my Blackberry 8330... Yes, I know. How can any self respecting social m...

I was in that blissful state of not quite half a sleep, not yet awake, and dreaming. I was well into a sci-fi like dream about how we were all in a big hurry trying to get to the future first. “Is it a race?” It seemed paramount, “where is ‘first’ in the future anyway? Then Poof! To late, so sad,...

At the Renton Farmers Market last Tuesday I stopped by to pick up some fresh veggies. I drive right by the Piazza downtown Renton most weekdays on my way home. I’ve blogged about the Renton Farmers Market a few times but today it's about the music. As I drove by I could hear a small ensemble rock...

Dad would have been 90 years old today. He was born in Newcastle, Washington in 1921 in a coal mining camp. The second son to George and Pauline Fabre. As a young boy he was inspired to be an accordion player like his Uncle Pete Delaurenti. That was in the midst of the Great Depression and money ...

I was downtown Renton yesterday headed for the Farmers Market after work. I found a place to park on Williams Ave S right behind this awesome Russian Ural motorcycle. I haven't seen many of these around. This is the "Gear-Up" model. It was originally built as a military bike back in 1941. It's ba...

I started kindergarten in the fall of 1955. We lived in the Renton Highlands then in one of those little cracker box homes built in 1942 to house the great influx of people who came here to work for Boeing and Pacific Car & Foundry (PACCAR) during World War II... Our kindergarten class met in the...

Once a year towards the end of July the City of Renton takes a week to throw a big festival that celebrates our community. There are all kinds of activities during the week. Arts and crafts, food, live music, contests, treasure hunts, chalk art, and a rubber ducky derby. This was our 26th year. I...

Isaac Benveniste founded the Renton Economy Department Store back in 1950. Ike’s story is nothing short of amazing and not unlike many of my grandparent’s generation who immigrated to the Pacific Northwest “from the old country” to create a better life. Ike was born in Greece on the Island of Rho...
