I quit teaching and playing music for a living, life presented me with another adventure. I was working d...

Once upon a time trains were the Empire Builders. They connected us long before the Interstate Highways. Work ended in Bellevue the other day so heading for home was down Interstate 405 to Renton. I wanted to make a few stops downtown so I took the old Sunset Highway (SR 900) exit to Bronson Way....

I've had this Imagination Rock for several years. It was given to me as a gift. It just dawned on me last evening that it had a bar code stuck on the back of it...

Renton has a long and rich Italian heritage and it would be hard to imagine old downtown without at least one Italian restaurant. My Mom (who was ironically of Swedish ancestry) was a master of Italian food in a contemporary style that was emerging in the Pacific Northwest in the late 1950's and ...
