I was grilling some marinated steaks for my son Jeff and I this past Friday night. We splurged! After a busy week it was fun to be home. I had a little more energy than some Friday’s. Instead of dead tired I was inspired to make a “real” dinner with all the fixings, tune out work, and watch a movie. While I was making sure my math was correct for timing everything I put on some music and ran through my movie library. Mashed potatoes, a fresh green salad, fresh green beans, oh oh... it’s been 8 minutes better check the grill. I ran out to the deck to make sure I didn’t over cook the first side of that steak when I saw this huge young gull sitting on top of our building 'A' chimney across the parking lot. It’s a totally crappy picture at dusk with my notorious Blackberry, but the point is...

Thursday, March 10, 2011... Heading home from work this afternoon the windstorm we've been hearing about is finally hitting Seattle. Stuff is blowing sideways all over the place and you can see the wind bucking cars back and forth. I got home a few minutes after 6:00 pm and looked off my deck to the west. The clouds were rolling by very fast. I could see 3 layers blowing in different directions. The photos don't capture the drama that was taking place, but I was able to get a few shots that show some of the amazing colors. I love the way the sunlight plays off the clouds. I was very glad I wasn't flying... I watched a couple of planes that took off from Boeing Airfield in Seattle flying south into the wind over Renton. One appeared to be standing still for the longest time. Finally it t...

Last weekend I got to be “Mr. Domestic” as I like to put it. Everyday the week before was about major events. Network meetings, conference calls, a sales meeting, the Northwest Video Summit, RE Barcamp, and we ended the week with Mike Mueller doing a couple of great Facebook Business Page workshops... I did a little work on Saturday, but realistically that distinction blurs more and more. “What is working and when am I not working?” Anyway, the weekend was at my pace. Laundry, house cleaning, grocery shopping, a little leisurely home cooking. Having some down time was exactly what I needed. During the events I was introduced to a bunch of new websites and apps and I just had to go check them all out. For each, of course, I had to go through the obligatory create your free account routin...

I missed this one. We had a closing last Wednesday (March 2, 2011) just as I was leaving for the Northwest Video Summit with Frank & Brian of Think Big Work Small. A young couple was closing the purchase of their new home and had their 5 year old with them. He was a really cute, intelligent, and well mannered young man. I had a lot on my mind. Last week was super busy with the TBWS video summit, RE Barcamp Seattle 2011 (March 3), and Mike Mueller stayed in town to give 2 workshops for The Talon Group clients on Facebook Pages (March 4). What an amazing week and everyday was super action packed! (More about that in the next post.) As I was scrambling to leave the office I could hear the initial beginnings of the closing and made a mental note to myself, ‘what a lovely family’, then off I...

Yes it's true, it rains in Seattle. We are now, at this time of the year, in theBig Gray. Like the song from the 60's television show "Here come the Brides", The bluest skies you've ever seen are in Seattle. That's because we won't see blue skies all that often for several months to come and our vision becomes "blue" sensitive. When the sun does come back and the skies clear, we're stunned. I don't mind, I was born here. To me, it's just weather. When it's dark and stormy and raining sideways, it's so nice to be warm and cozy inside, fire in the fireplace, reading a good book, watching a movie, playing my piano, working on a project like my photos, or checking out a good blog post on Activerain. Back in 2006 I had the good fortune to take the trip of a life time to the (BVI) British Vir...

We were bound to mete... I’ve always had a passion for maps. It started back when I was a kid. We grew up in a small neighborhood on the west edge of Renton that was right out of the movie American Graffiti. We were a little isolated because Sunset Highway cut us off from the rest of Earlington Hill on the north and the railroad tracks were a border to the south. The rules were quite simple for kids our age. We were free to roam just stay on our side of the highway. Across the street from our house was what we kids deemed, the "Little Woods" and to the west a couple of blocks and down to the end of the alley past Taylor’s pasture was the "Big Woods.” Mom would yell out the front door for us in the little woods, but Dad always sent our cocker spaniel Daisy to fetch us when it was time to...

I almost forgot that today’s my Active Rain birthday. I’m officially a toddler now having posted my first blog here two years ago on November 23, 2008. My friend Richard Weisgerber from Microsoft knew what I was up to and was first to comment to help get me properly launched. Richard and I have known each other since 1980. We met when I was working a New Music program for a nonprofit called And/Or on Capitol Hill in Seattle (a different wacky music adventure regarding the future). My coworker at the time, Matt Sweet also chimed in on day one to encourage my first steps here. We were then on a mission of discovery just hacking out a new working hypothesis. The world as we knew it, the way we communicate, the way we were going to do business made a monumental paradigm shift. In a sincere ...

I’m heading home this evening, it’s Monday. I’m leaving the office late and I'm really looking forward to being at home. There’s a storm brewing. The wind has picked up and it's beginning to rain. It’s downright nasty out. I’m listening to Russian composers on the CD in my truck; Shostakovich, Prokofiev, Stravinsky, somehow it seems appropriate in November. I think about my “great idea”, The Blackberry Chronicles. It was cool back in summer when the days were long and bright. Now it’s dark when I leave for work and it’s dark when I get off work. "How will I ever get a shot now?" Of course doubt has a visit and I question myself. It’s a Blackberry, no fancy shutter speeds, zoom, or focus. Just point and shoot. I remind myself that the purpose of this exercise is more of a reporter than a...

Around here if you live on Highland Drive, Lake Washington Blvd, East or West Mercer Way, Evergreen Point Road, Edgewater Lane, or Hunts Point Road you just know without a doubt you’re talking about some really serious real estate. These are the homes most of us merely dream about. Many of them are waterfront properties with living spaces near 10,000 square feet and many are larger. Heck, their garages are at least half again bigger than my condo and their annual property taxes are X4 what I make in a year. I was thinking today as I was doing my Saturday errands about the favorite addresses I have lived. Not that I was ever an empire builder, affluent, or ever owned a place that was 10,000 square feet or more. My first home was on Maple Ave SW. How quaint. When I think of Maple Avenue I...

As we head into the fall, it's a great time for waterfront home buyers to take a look at the current inventory. The summer selling season is usually the busiest for waterfront real estate, and it takes in some of the highest sale prices for the year. The larger pool of buyers in the market creates more multiple-offer situations during the summer (yes, multiple-offers still happen in this market). By the fall, there have been many price reductions on homes that create a great value for those home buyers who have waited patiently for a lower price. We've seen price reductions on most of the waterfront market in the past couple of months. There are a significant number of waterfront homes having open houses this weekend. From Puget Sound waterfront to Lake Washington, Lake Union, and Lake ...

It's a beautiful Fall morning in the Pacific Northwest. On the way to work this morning I'm heading down the hill into Renton when I pull up behind this truck at the light. It took me a couple of seconds to realize what I was seeing... I couldn't help myself, I busted out laughing. What a great way to start the week. Another reason I love Halloween. It brings out a sense of humor in people we don't always get to witness. The Blackberry Chronicles ARFCO Media ©2010

Two waterfront homes on Lake Washington were sold in North Renton's Kennydale neighborhood in September. Located near Coulon Beach Park and the Seattle Seahawks' training facility, Kennydale is an easily accessible neighborhood with proximity to I-405, I-90, and some of the flattest water on Lake Washington. It's also home to some of the most affordable waterfront on the lake. The first sale was a 3000 sq ft, 3/3 late 1970s home with plenty of updates. Selling at $1.325 million, it's one of the least expensive sales we've seen recently for a large, updated home with almost 70 feet of Lake Washington waterfront, an inground pool, etc. A similar-sized new construction home in the Barbee Mill development of Kennydale sold at just over $1.4 million. This home is a tri-level "duet" or "duple...

Times change and so much of what we know about life continually morphs into a newly discovered sensibility. Case in point, it was just Columbus Day last Monday and many of us are no longer all that impressed about it (if I’m reading all the ‘tweets’ right). We were taught in School to celebrate the day, the discovery of America. Yet, now, history is rewritten and we realize the fact it was a conquest (with many to follow) and millions of indigenous peoples were compromised, murdered, and basically ripped off to the max. Mr. Columbus didn’t even discover 'here'. He was looking for a different place and mistook it for 'here'… I think that’s why I love Halloween so much… It’s one of those polyglot holidays that’s difficult to rewrite because we don’t really remember or care where it came f...

I owe a huge debt of gratitude to my next door neighbor, Cheryl. She was 3 or 4 years ahead of me in school and even though I was a punk kid to her we shared a special connection; we both played the French horn. We also shared a huge curiosity for the changes starting to take place in pop music. I spent many wonderful hours in her home listening to vinyl records on her portable record player.Cheryl had a friend in England that would send her the latest UK releases. Because of her I was one of the first in the US to Meet the Beatles. She was a catalyst to discovery for me and without her influences I probably never would have explored some of the musical paths I chose to.Our claim to fame in the Northwest at the time was The Ventures (from Tacoma and a totally awesome instrumental guitar...
