A sad day for western Washington

At approximately 8:15 Sunday morning, a man walked into Forza Coffee in Parkland, Wash. and shot and killed four Lakewood police officers who were getting ready for their morning shift. I’m not going to go into the details of what happened. You can read them here. What I will say is that it is a sad […]

Male order for the universe

I have recently read a book in which the heroine “orders” her ideal man from the universe. Half an hour later, lo and behold, she meets him! I thought I’d follow suit, put in my own order and see if it works for me. I mean, it can’t hurt since I haven’t had any kind […]
