Wooden Racing Shells
A gorgeous video which should make anyone want to row. Bill Colley claims to be the last builder of wooden racing shells. My friend Steve Chapin, here in Port Townsend, keeps Bill company: www.pocockclassic.com. I hope the two of them can talk soon.

If you go to the language / input settings you can set the language of the Google spell checker to English (UK)
 
Yes, the updated Google Keyboard is nice, but one STUPID negative remains.
Though I've clearly set mine to English (UK), +Google still gives me the US spelling of a word every time!

Reclaiming Chestnut
Steve Habersetzer securing a section of the Chestnut tree taken down during the sidewalk project at the Hospital in Port Townsend. My thanks to Jim Shanness and Kate Burke for letting us know about the log. And a big round of thanks to the construction crew their help picking up the log and putting it in the truck. We'll make something special out of this wood.

Great article in the Leader about Jim Tolpin 
For a small town the Leader is an insanely good newspaper!
The release of By Hand & Eye concludes a three-year journey of research and hard work to rediscover the language and techniques of tried-and-true design methods by Jim Tolpin and George Walker.

The bean and the fish burritos are amazing. I eat there at least twice a week

Great location. One of the best places in the state to hang out, explore an ever changing array of beers and ciders from the PNW. Beer garden is wonderful just above the high tide line on Port Townsend bay.

I work here so I'm a little biased. Beautiful walks in the forest and on the shore. Emplacements and bunkers to explore. Plus amazing institutions like Centrum and their festivals in the summer; the Port Townsend Marine Science with touch tanks and great kids camps; the Coast Artillery Museum for a fascinating collection of artefacts from the history of the Fort; Madrona MindBody for an exploration of spirit and movement. There's more but I do have to plug the Port Townsend School of Woodworking. Check us and the Fort out!
