  • Lets Talk Turkey

    Posted Under: General Area in Everett, Parks & Recreation in Everett, In My Neighborhood in Everett  |  November 26, 2013 2:50 PM  |  325 views  |  No comments

    Instead of the usual Tuesday Tips or showcasing Homes for Sale....

    It's Turkey Week!!


    Did you know Americans consume more than 353 million pounds of turkey during National Turkey Lovers' month in JUNE? By comparison, more that 675 million pounds of turkey will be consumed at Thanksgiving. I didn't even know there was a National Turkey lovers day I just assumed that was Thanksgiving. Silly me!

    Here is some more Turkey Trivia
    • The average person in the United States will eat 15 pounds of turkey this year.
    • A male turkey is called a tom, a female is a hen, and a youngster is a poult.
    • Only male turkeys, or toms, can gobble, and they mostly do it in the spring and fall. It is a mating call and attracts the hens.
    • At maturity, the average turkey shows off 3500 feathers.

    History of Thanksgiving Holiday in the U.S

    In a 1789 proclamation, President George Washington called on the people of the United States to acknowledge God for affording them "an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness "by observing a day of thanksgiving. Devoting a day to "public thanksgiving and prayer, " as Washington called it, became a yearly tradition in many communities.


    Thanksgiving became a National Holiday in 1863

    In that year, during the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln made his Thanksgiving Day Proclamation. He asked his fellow citizens to "set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next as a day of thanksgiving and praise..."

    It was not until 1941 that Congress designated the fourth Thursday in the November as Thanksgiving Day, thus creating a federal holiday.

    No Song for Thanksgiving.

    The song "Jingle Bells" was actually written for Thanksgiving. The song was composed in 1857, by James Pierpont, and was originally called "One Horse Open Sleigh"

    Funny for Thanksgiving summed up in the words of Johnny Carson

    "Thanksgiving is an emotional holiday. People travel thousands of miles to be with people thy only see once a year. And then discover once a year is way too often."

  • Get Outside This Fall and Winter!

    Posted Under: Quality of Life in Everett, Parks & Recreation in Everett, In My Neighborhood in Everett  |  November 13, 2013 5:22 PM  |  325 views  |  No comments

    The other day as I was driving my sons to school my middle son was complaining that he hated this time of year and the rain. He said he wished we could move from our home in Snohomish County to Arizona where Grandpa and Grandma are now and where its always sunny and warm (when he was younger he use to say Arizona was "shiny") My youngest piped in and said "Oh no you better think about this! You know how mom is always saying -Get outside its nice and blow some stink off? If we lived in Arizona we would never get to play XBox!

    As I smiled in the front seat and tried to contain my laughter I thought yes, Arizona is nice and I do love the sunshine but, I think in the Pacific Northwest we appreciate the sun more. We search for outside activities for when it is nice outside, regardless of the time of year, so we can run out and enjoy the beauty this great state of Washington has to offer.

    So I say to all of you- Go outside and blow some stink off!

    And here is a great list of ideas and links from parks to hikes and everything in between.

  • Did someone die in this house?

    Posted Under: General Area in Bothell, Home Buying in Bothell, In My Neighborhood in Bothell  |  November 1, 2013 11:14 AM  |  374 views  |  No comments

    A new site lets you search this question …

    Yesterday was Halloween and I hope you all had a nice and "sweet" one. One of the lenders I use sent me this tid bit in honor of Halloween and I thought it was pretty interesting. So many times I have been asked "Do you know if anyone died here"? Unless the seller discloses that information on what is referred to as a Form 17; I have no idea. However, if it's an Estate sale then it’s a pretty darn good assumption someone did.

     

    Now there is a site that answers this question. Yes, there is a small fee but for those that just have to know it might be worth it.

     

    Manressa Castle - Port Townsend, WA

     

    Story behind the site :

     

    A Text in the night put Roy Condrey on the trail of the dead.

    "Did you know that your house is haunted?" read the letters glowing on his screen. It wasn't a message from beyond, but rather came from one of the tenants in the properties he rents out to supplement his income as a software project manager.

    But the text got him pondering: Even if you suspected you had a paranormal force inhabiting your home, how could you tell if someone died in it?

     

    Thus was Diedinhouse.com born. The site cross references between public records and other databases to find who used to live in a particular U.S. address, whether they're alive or not, and if they died while in the house. It can tell prospective homebuyers information the seller isn't obligated to disclose, which can sometimes lower a house's final price.

     

    The night the idea was germinating; Condrey sat in front of the computer and began searching for answers. He discovered it's not that easy to electronically dig up a body under your roof.

     

    From one source he could get a list of everyone who lived in the house. Then he had to check each name against another list to see if they were alive. Other databases and searches could turn up clues as to whether their death happened at the address itself. Few states require sellers to disclose if anyone died in the home, even if it was a murder-suicide that everyone else in the neighborhood knows about. By and large, it's let the buyer beware ... of ghosts.

     

    In that informational void Condrey saw opportunity. He grabbed a few programmer pals, and in June of this year his website was spawned. In the first five months, it sold a few thousand reports for $11.99 per U.S. address searched.

     

    A few Halloween-minded media mentions later and it's now selling a thousand per day…..go figure ~

  • Snohomish County lineup of FUN for the weekend

    Mount. Rainier- Shot taken by a viewer and posted to King 5 Facebook page. What a gorgeous picture!

    Ahhhh I love summer don't you? The weather has been great here in the Northwest and I even read that we are having the best summer in the country! I believe it since everywhere I drive I see license plates from almost more states than I see Washington Plates. I have also heard that we have the jobs and everyone is moving here. Of course, I am happy about this and look forward to helping more families make a smooth move to our beautiful state!

    With all this sun and our great events going on in August go enjoy all our beautiful area has to offer!

    This weekend for example brings one of my favorites. I grew up going to this festival every summer. Its the The Taste of Edmonds which runs from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday at the Civic Playfield, 310 Sixth Ave. N, Edmonds.

    I wish I could go but my kids have been up in Lake Sammish for camp this week and I have to pick them up. I don't think they will want to go anywhere this weekend. After all I can just see their faces since they have not had any Xbox time for a week!

    Another great event this weekend, and as a animal lover I must share, is the Mutt Strutt. The event goes from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Langus Riverfront Park, 400 Smith Island Road., Everett.

    There is seriously something for everyone this weekend!

    • The Stillaguamish Festival of the River and Pow Wow is Saturday and Sunday at River Meadows County Park in Arlington.
    • The Marysville Street Festival will showcase local produce, artisans, musicians and artists along Third Street on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
    • A show of fuchsias is from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Country Village in Bothell.
    • The Collectors Car Show and Outdoor Market will be at the Camano Center at 606 Arrowhead Road on Saturday from 10 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.

    This is just a brief run down of what I saw happening from the Weekend Line-up at the Everett Herald for Snohomish County.

    Earlier in the summer I gave everyone these two links that I have been using faithfully all summer for whats happening so I can keep my poor bored kids engaged for the summer. Here they are again. Go, See, Do From the Everett Herald. Also, scroll down on the page for the Splash link to fairs, festivals and more.

    Want to go down to Seattle this weekend? Great fun happening all over the Northwest.

    Seattle’sSummer guide from the Local Seattle Times News.

    Enjoy your weekend!
