Tacoma Gnome

The TacomaGnome is a blogging online entity and a force to be reckoned with. I usually find his Norwegian-influenced interviews to be nothing less than cleverly thought out and insurmountably hilarious. This time, I was able to be the interviewer, and he the interviewee — something this tiny garden gnome

Whistling Pigs and tacos

For this second installation of Olympia exploration, I went to a place that I consider to be an epicenter of many things that I love: The Fish Tale Brew Pub. Why do I love Olympia’s Fish Brewing so? Well, let’s just say that I’m addicted to any of their organic beers (especially

The Den

You walk through urbanXchange’s hip, second-hand boutique. You take a few more steps and there is a record shop. You walk yet farther and there is a small hair studio. The structure continues, and there is a tea bar still under construction and then a stage shows itself against the

Resale fun

Britney Spears blared on the sound system as I walked in. Scanning the packed store, I was easily 10 years older than all the other customers. Every third female sported a trucker hat and an oh-so-not-from-the-sun tan. Ah, the youth of America. Plato's Closet in Olympia is a buy-sell secondhand

Company first sergeant, executive officer training side-by-side for JBLM Triple Threat Triathlon

JOINT BASE LEWIS-McCHORD, Wash. - In college, 1st Lt. James Appel always wanted to compete in a triathlon. But, somewhere, he always found a reason not to. "I kind of made excuses when I was in college for the reasons why I didn't," said Appel,

Gilded cage

Last week I identified a painting as a flower painting by Elliott Ficus. Actually it was a painting of a Ficus by Eric Elliott. My mistake. I mistook the name of an image file for the artist’s name. So now that we know who he is I recommend you see
