Thomas Alva Edison, who invented the phonograph in 1878, was a genius, but even he couldn't have foreseen the rise of his invention as a musical instrument. It's a shame. Imagine how his face would have lit up like a lightbulb (get it?) after witnessing a DJ elate a crowd

Thanks to Michael, creator of last week's "spread your wings" email (which instructed us to head out east), Bandito Betty and I were stuck in Bonney Lake for the day. Last week we ventured up the big hill, otherwise known as State Route 410, and set our sights on some
QUESTION: I'm thinking of postponing my wedding. My fiance seems incapable of being apart from me. We dated long distance, so I didn't realize the extent of his clinginess until we moved in together. If I want some "me time," he gets offended. If I don't stand or sit next
