Angels in the field

There are angels participating in almost every race at Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM). It's not a secret, nor do the angels hide among the crowd. They're easy to spot in their bright pink shirts, chatting happily at the starting line in a motley group of tricycle racing-chairs and athletes. If you

Winter in Missoula, Montana

Missoula, Montana, turns into a winter wonderland during the colder months of the year. About an eight-hour drive from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, it makes a great base for winter fun. For some, snow means skiing and snowboarding, and just a short 12-mile drive northwest of Missoula is the Montana Snowbowl. The

Nourishing nibbles

I was meandering through the produce aisle at the grocery store yesterday when I noticed something. All of the prepackaged salads were ... gone. Mixed greens, spinach, baby arugula. All of them. It looked odd to see an entire display case completely void of the neatly packaged, twice washed greens,

The 10 most forgettable movies of the year

If I'm going to endure nonsense such as The Dark Tower and The Great Wall and Rough Night and Wonder Wheel -- and those disasters somehow escape even finding a spot on this list -- I might as well commit to ranking the absolute worst movies of 2017. So hold your

Three easy pieces

In Three Easy Pieces, I examine a specific subgenre of pop culture from its birth, through its development, and arriving at how it looks today. This month, as we march forward into a new year, I'm looking at coming-of-age movies. Growing up is never easy, but movies sometimes have a

Glass and steel fused together

I was truly impressed by "Complementary Contrasts: The Glass and Steel Sculptures of Albert Paley" at Museum of Glass, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Prior to visiting this show, I had seen only photographs of Paley's work, which is much more powerful when seen in person. Photographs do not come

Fizzy hooks

I first heard the Pixies in much the same way that I imagine many people of a certain generation did: in the ending credits for Fight Club. As Project Mayhem's ultimate plan comes to fruition, and Edward Norton and Helena Bonham Carter stare helplessly as several financial buildings are demolished, the

Adventuring on the Alaska Ferry

Imagine waking up in your warm, pillowy sleeping bag, then unzipping your tent to look out at the stunning scenery of the Alaska coastline as it drifts by. Fog rises off the water surrounding you, and you remember you're not on land. You're onboard the Alaska Ferry, a ferry system

Let the games (and drinks) begin

Is it just us, or has the world of bar games expanded far beyond the classic lineup of darts, pool and hook and ring toss? Don't get us wrong, any bar game can turn a lackluster outing into an evening of lighthearted fun, but a little variety never hurts. Luckily,
