Olympia Bar Art Walk

Originally, this article was supposed to be an overview of the funky antique stores around Olympia and beyond. And while I love Finder's Keeper's, Sanford and Son and Yard Birds, my timing this week for visiting those shops was off, and I was unable to do proper research. So, feeling sorry

Special Activity Days at the 2014 Washington State Fair

So a cock, a heifer and a pig walk into a bar. The sweaty swine snorts as he turns to the bartender and squeals, "Which way to Cody Simpson?" The barkeep nods his head, "You looking for the WASHINGTON STATE FAIR?" The cock lets out an excited cluck and a

How to be a skinny Canadian

It's An internationally known fact that I am not an international traveler. I've made the people of America, and all four of you who read this column, well aware of my feelings toward international travel safety and lack thereof. I've become a huge germaphobe and wuss when it comes to foreign

Friday, Sept. 5: Diesto

If I were only allowed to write about one genre of music, as much as I enjoy all the folk rock, indie pop, punk, jazz fusion and hip-hop, I'd have to narrow my choice to one category: heavy rock. And so, when such a band comes into view, filtering out

Theater Review: "Blithe Spirit" at Olympia Little Theatre

I earned my undergraduate theater BA in an auditorium reputed, as so many are, to be haunted. Students reported inexplicable pennies falling from the "clouds" overhead. I heard women's voices arguing in the wings one night in an otherwise empty building, a phenomenon I was helpless to explain till a

Army Retirement Series: Spouse year-long diary as Spec. Ops husband transfers to civilian life
