I really do not like driving in snow. But I admit it, the snow is really cool looking and fun to play in. One of my favorite things to do in the winter is ice fish. A lake that is just outside of Yakima is perfect for it. What is even more cool about the lake is, most people do not even go there during the winter, so it is usually just me and a handful of people. That is it!
I love all types of music. Rock, heavy metal, country, pop and even some rap. Journey and Asia have been on the top of my list ever since I was a kid. I never dreamed that they would tour together -- let alone stop in the Yakima Valley! But that is exactly what is happening this March!
The Yakima Herald-Republic recently reported that 86-year-old Paul McCulloh had found a mysterious suitcase in the storage unit he had rented for years. The suitcase wasn't his, but it contained a treasure trove of a family's memories -- photos, ashes of a pet dog, books and other mementos.
The Herald posted a photo of the suitcase's contents on their website in hopes that someone would come forward to claim the perplexing suitcase. No one had a clue as to how it wound up McCulloh's storage unit.
Weird as it sounds, I had kind of a similar experience back in the 1980s.
I have driven in just about every state in the United States except Alaska. I have still never been there, but it's on my bucket list. From my travels, I can tell you who has the worst drivers ever. But a study by an online insurance agency, Quote Wizard, came up with a list of its own. I will have to disagree with them on a few of these.
I hate going to laundromats. It is the worst thing, and I hate doing laundry anyway, so it makes it that much worse. Every now and again my friends and I will share the duties. I don't have a washer and a dryer anymore so it is usually me bringing the wine or beer while I do laundry at their house. But what do you think about a Uber-style arrangement for laundry?
There are a lot of charities out there, and I'd love to be involved with most of them. Pegasus Project is one of them -- such an incredible cause. They provide therapy for adults and children with special needs by getting them on horseback and teaching them to care for horses -- which helps clients cope with what they are going through. The Pegasus Project is always in need of donations.
The second annual Chili Cookoff at Owens Cycle last Saturday was awesome! We had a great time with the United States Marine Corps and the YWCA! All the bike clubs in town came out and entered their chili!
It's the time of year when chili just sounds good. And if you're particular about your chili and like to have more than one kind to taste, Owens Cycle has a treat for you: The second annual Chili Cook Off gets underway this Saturday (Dec. 3) at 11 a.m. in the Harley-Davidson dealer's parking lot, 1707 S. First St.
In this world we all need a little inspiration. From the negativity of war, the presidential election, racism, penniless people and so on, something needs to bring us together. Who knew that a painted rock in 2016 would do the trick!
