Horseback Riding in Seattle?

I want to give an 8 yr. old child a gift of horseback riding lessons in Seattle. She lives in the Greenlake area. Can someone point me in the right direction? I'm in California and will have to make all of the arrangements over the phone, so any advice will be greatly appreciated.

I've just today received my absentee ballot, and I'm somewhat confused by the color scheme they're using to identify the parties. Before I disclose the coloring that's being used (I'm in Snohomish County, I don't know how different it will be in other counties) I'm curious what colors you usually associate with various parties.

Thanks for your input.

Men's Haircuts?

My boyfriend had me cut his hair for him and I messed it up (followed what he wanted- told him it'd look bad- and it does!) so now we're looking for somewhere that can give him a hair cut and fix it. I looked through the memories but most all of those are for women's hair. Any recommendations? Specific people would be a + also!

Looking for more of that "indie" look without too steep of a price. I'll end up taking him to someone (but who??) at Vain if I have to but was looking for something no more then $30. Also I'd rather not go to Scream (atleast capitol hill location) because everytime I've walked out of there I've found pieces of hair that had been missed and not cut and had to go home and cut off pieces myself.

Hi, I'm new!

I am doing the thing my parents were most terrified of.... moving to a strange city with no job lined up and no apartment lined up.

Yeah, it's pretty crazy.

But I'll be there on Tuesday. I have enough saved to keep me from being homeless, as long as I find a decent place to live when I get there.

I'm looking for a room or apartment that will be OK with me having two cats...

Oh, and I'm looking for a job, too. Any kind of administrative work, or retail, or serving.

Me: 25. Fun. Nice. Doesn't normally do reckless things. Writer in spare time. Love reading, art, good food and making friends. And making money.

Looking for something to do on Saturday afternoon? From my work:

Stars from Noggin's The N tweens and teens popular original series, Degrassi: The Next Generation, will appear at the Alderwood Mall in Lynnwood this Saturday, August 28th sometime between 1-6 p.m. The mall tour stop at Alderwood is part of a national sweepstakes where customers can meet/greet the stars and enter to win a possible walk-on role on Degrassi.

Personally, I was unaware that there were more seasons of Degrassi Jr. High after the ones I watched in the 80's. What other stories could they tell? And how can they tell the stories without the kid who wore the hat all the time???


After having looked at the website, it appears that Degrassi is about a group of people in their mid-to-late 20's, trapped in a Canadian middle-high school circa 1988. When was this filmed??? Sure it's from Canada, but I thought they were only *10* years behind us, socially. Shouldn't they be in to Grunge by now, instead of New Order?
