seattle: Fourth of July in Seattle 2010 - 07/02/10 04:49 AM
Fourth of July in Seattle The number one hot spot for fireworks is still Lake Union.  Seattlites had to fight to keep this one going with over $500,000 in contributions.  We can thank Microsoft, Starbucks, Tom Douglas and many individual donors for this event.  The Seattle display has been noted by Time magazine as on the country's TOP FIVE fireworks displays. Called Family 4th at Lake Union and Produced by One Reel, (think Teatro Zinzanni), you can view Fourth of July fireworks from Gas Works Park, (1201 N Northlake Way) your boat on the lake, enjoying one of many restaurants or … (0 comments)

seattle: Summer In Seattle - 06/22/10 05:29 AM
Summer in Seattle
As the first day of Summer arrived yesterday, we celebrated in Seattle with clouds and a bit of misty rain.  It's been a wet and colder than usual Spring.
We call it liquid sunshine.  It's bright, yet gloomy with light gray clouds.
Surprisingly, at an average of 37 inches per year, Seattle actually ranks 44 among U.S. cities in average annual rain.  Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Houston and St. Louis outrank us.
But I think we may come in at number one for the most cloudy days.  We don't experience too many downpours, just lots of … (3 comments)

Another not well-known fact is that it is also home to a natural spring, which exists in the northwest area of Licton Springs Park.

seattle: Creating Time and Energy - 08/02/08 01:53 PM
It just seems like there are never enough hours in a day ... there is always more I'd like to get done.
When I first started my real estate career, I put in lots of hours to make sure I was doing and learning everything I could.
This year my motto is: more balance!  And that includes having time to exercise.  It took me until April to find my commitment to work out, a passion I am glad I found again.
And although, I have never been an early morning trainer, I found a great, intensive, non-routine way to get me … (3 comments)
