Today (Dec. 21) is the Winter Solstice, marking the first day of winter. It is still pretty cold today, but at least it isn't snowing. That was last week. That is when the first day of winter should have been -- on our first snow day.
The KATS Monday Night Football tailgate parties have come to an end for this season. It's sad because it has been so much fun and a huge success. Akland Pump and Irrigation hung out with us at Jack-sons Sports Bar & Clubhouse Lounge all year and gave us $1,000 for one lucky winner at the end of our Monday nights! This week (Dec. 19) we gave it away! And the winner is ...
Yakima's 2016 Toys For Tots drive with the United States Marine Corps was a huge success. It usually is, however we all helped raise even more toys than ever before to supply even more families with toys. This year we got enough to help out families from the Yakama Nation, Wapato, Sunnyside and more over 1,000 families in Yakima!
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?
