The Wednesday Slice question

Considering all the varieties of American families in 2014, it seems fair to ask. Who around here will be attending the greatest number of family reunions this summer?

The Wednesday Slice question

Ever see a TV commercial so forehead-slappingly offputting that you were actually disappointed that you don't use the product or eat that brand of fast-food, thus depriving you of the pleasure of launching a one-person boycott at that very moment?

The Wednesday Slice question

This one is for those who didn't grow up in Spokane or anywhere near here.

You know how many people in our area seem to think nothing of driving over to Seattle? Well, if you applied that one-way distance to potential trips in more densely populated parts of the country (the place where you grew up, perhaps), where could you have gone?

I'll go first. If you started in the New England town where I went to high school, a drive of that length could have gotten you way past Boston, Hartford or Montreal. Or past Portland, Maine. Or past Providence, R.I. Or Manchester, New Hampshire. And almost to New York City. (Past it, if we use the Coeur d'Alene to Seattle distance.)

The Wednesday Slice question

Yesterday afternoon, a gull screeched while gliding over a South Hill parking lot.

A little boy, maybe 4 years old, said “Look Dad, an eagle.”

OK, he's just a little guy. No harm done. But it made me wonder.

Considering that we live here in “Near Nature” country and so many among us enjoy camping, hiking and what not, do you think kids here know a bit more about wildlife than typical American children?
