I've been searching online, but my Google-fu has failed me today. Which scooters/vespas are considered freeway-legal for Seattle/Bellevue? I'm looking into options for motorized transportation, and knew that scooters/vespas are not allowed on sidewalks, thus it would be stupid for me to buy one and not be able to make it to work or school across I-90.

the big one

Know of any earthquake-proofing contractors?

Specifically, someone to bolt a house to its foundation?

I know that the procedure is simple (straps and bolts) and you can take a one-time course at Lowe's or Home Depot at specific times or take an experimental college course to learn how to do this, but we aren't easily available on their schedule, and I'd like to get this taken care of and cross it off the endless home maintenance list.

If you can help, I will do a happy shake and then float a big, sloppy kiss on the wind to you.

Organic Produce CSA Recommendations


According to the 2005 Puget Sound Fresh Community Supported Agriculture online brochure (PDF), one can purchase a "share" from a farm, which entitles one to weekly deliveries of fresh produce throughout a designated season, picking up the share at the farm or at a convenient drop off site.

I will look for an updated 2006 PSF CSA brochure, but in the meantime, I wanted to check among the seattle denizens for recommended CSA farms, particularly those that distribute produce weekly to the Seattle area. In short, what farm do you use, what produce varieties do you receive, is your produce certified organic, when are the start and end dates of the designated season?

Co-Rec Softball

I want to join a Co-Rec Softball team in the Ballard Greenwood area. I don't have enough people to create a team of my own so I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get info about joining an existing team.


Anyone know where I can purchase a carnivorous plant such as a Venus Fly Trap?

Yes, I checked memories, google, yellowpages, craigslist, and even called a few stores. I found nothing. Seen one around anywhere?
