By Dave Young Some of the best fitness work you can do need be no further away than your own garage, basement, bonus room, or even carport.
This May, Woodland Park Zoo is going black and white and green all over.

Eastlake High School Drama Team is trying something new this winter.
Kids will be out of school for the holidays in just a few weeks. If you’re looking for a few outdoor options not too far from home, Sammamish and Issaquah both have several kid-pleasing playgrounds worth checking out.
Well, it’s that time of year again. No, I’m not talking about the holidays, I’m referring to that most important and most overlooked of computer maintenance items – removing the dust and debris from inside your computer case.
I have this philosophy that as we age we put numerous layers on top of us that slow us down in all aspects of life.
As my great-grandfather Ebenezer Wappler used to tell me, nothing says “Happy Holidays!” like doing the exact same thing, the exact same way every year. From dry turkey to cold gravy, from Uncle Pete telling his favorite jokes to a smooch on the cheek for Grandma, it‘s not the holidays if things change too much, too fast.
“Over the river and through the woods, to Grandmother’s house we go…” Many of us will travel this holiday season, whether it is by plane, train or automobile, for a holiday meal, a few days’ stay with family or friends, or a week’s vacation to celebrate with loved ones. Staying organized with your holiday travel will ensure smooth sailing.
Eastlake High School Drama Team members this week will perform a WWII drama set in Louisiana.
I remember quite well my first Christmas in Sammamish (then unincorporated King County) in 1989. Just after decorating our house in High Country with lights, the snow started falling. It snowed heavily and the beauty of the Pacific Northwest took our breath away.
With the recent economic uncertainty, we know a lot of people that are tightening their financial belts. The holidays can be a stressful time for people financially what with the decorating, the gift buying, and the entertaining. This year, enjoy the same holiday experience on a smaller budget.
It’s not as if I need to find reasons to continue indulging in arguably my favorite pastime – surfing the Internet. After all, I surf the Net for a living!
If you’re looking for something dull to read but have already completed the phone book, here’s a great choice: The Plum Book.
Will you be sending out some sort of holiday correspondence this year? Now is a great time to get the ball rolling.
