31 Knots salute

It’s official. Bobble Tiki will never, ever, ever listen to Matt Driscoll again. You’d think Bobble Tiki would have learned this valuable lesson already, seeing as he’s worked with Driscoll for years and the guy has yet to offer anything even remotely helpful to Bobble Tiki, but sometimes lessons like

A hunting I go

This good ol’ girl from Texas grew up around dead, man-killed animals. Every boy I ever dated had to be at least 6 feet tall, play football, and have a six-point buck mounted above his fireplace. It was a trip down my testosterone-adoring younger days when I ran into gun-toting-hottie

According to Wikipedia, it means "the experience of seeing patterns or connections in random

BACA Bash

If there’s a perfect stereotype to scare away unwanted predators, it’s going to be a biker. “Breaking the chain, Healing the wounds” is the motto sung loud and true for our local Biker’s Against Child Abuse (BACA) chapter. Leather clad riders from the Puget Sound area and all over Washington

Bearded Tacoma

I’ve always been a fan of Tacoma’s very own Pat Dawson and Justin Peterson, and when I visited them recently while they were slinging drinks at Hell’s Kitchen, they let me know that I’ll have yet another reason to cheer for them. These two fine, distinguished men are in the process

Boy in the Bubble

Rarely are made-for-TV-movies memorable. In fact, made-for-TV-movies should probably be thankful they’re not, because if they were memorable people would likely recall how much they suck and stop watching them. However, there are a few made-for-TV-movies that stick in my consciousness — movies I’ll never forget for a variety of reasons.   One

Cider Squeeze

On the first day of September I sat with a dozen eggs to, once and for all, confirm or dispel the nagging question of whether or not eggs will stand unaided after Labor Day. What I had was scrambled eggs for breakfast. What is guaranteed is that fall is upon

Do The Puyallup

Friday, Sept. 5 Western Rodeo Parade Despite my well-deserved reputation as a globetrotter and travel cognoscente, I have yet to attend the running of the bulls in Spain. The closest I’ve come was the time I ordered a Quarter Pounder with cheese (in my defense, it was before reading Fast Food Nation),
