The Northwest is more than just a place, it is a state of mind. It is a walk in the cool crisp rain to refresh yourself. A gull guided ferry ride across the sound. A mountain hike. A suset framed in evergreens. Your children laughing. A shopping spree. A steaming hot cup of coffee and your favor...
  "Freedom makes a huge requirement of every human being. With freedom comes responsibility. For the person who is unwilling to grow up, the person who does not want to carry their own weight, this is a frightening prospect."Eleanor Roosevelt   I was never very politically minded before. I voted ...
I agree that obstacles and challenges can be beautiful even distracting at times. I prefer to see them in my rear view mirror or the other side, after I have tackled them. Sometimes however challenging they are, they do help us slow down a bit and maybe come up with a better plan of success inste...
This blog is spot on. It is so important to take the time to thank people and a hand written card would be at the top of my list to accomplish this. Who doesn't appreciate a thank you? When was the last time you received a handwritten note in the mail or, for that matter, when was the last time y...

I have been spending a lot of time reorganizing my house. My two oldest daughters have moved out and I am getting things organized just the way I want th...
A standard of excellence is more than just what you say, it is what you do! This post is short and to the point. If you subscribe to these standards nothing will be able to keep your business down! As I was growing up, my Dad would often times remind me that any job worth doing was worth doing to...
  I decided to check out the Active Rain contests and came across this one that required us to read sections from a book and then share what we thought. The book began with a scene from "City Slickers", one of my favorite movies, so I decided to keep reading. Then it got serious-LOL and I couldn'...
This blog is full of great ideas and things to think about when considering a remodel. You don't want to go over the top or waste money on a fad. But you do want to set the right atmosphere and bring your home up to the market standards or a bit beyond to give your home an edge. Have you ever wal...
