When Will Highway 20 Open in 2016? I predict April 12.

Well it’s that time of year. The WSDOT has announced that they are starting the yearly challenge of clearing off Highway 20. Last yearI predicted the pass would be clear on April 5th and the actual date was April 3. Nailed. It. OK, now I’ve jinxed this…

Book: The Sports Gene

Summary: In grad school a small group of friends would often debate “Nature versus Nurture” over beers. Thing is, I could never remember which side I wanted to defend and so had to make my arguments “flexible”. The Sports Gene: Inside the Science of…

Another slow year on reading. I would like to blame work, but my inability to avoid reading random stuff on the Internet is to blame. I definitely recommend “Governing the Commons”, it’s wonkish but gives an interesting view on a middle way for common…

A++ great craftsmanship, artistry, and service. We needed a coffee table for our modern cabin and we looked all over before finding Weld House. After a few exchanges of emails where we showed Joel the space where the table would be and a few photos of his previous work that we admired, he came back with a perfect color from a piece of sheet metal from a 70s Chevy. The table is really incredible, one of a kind, and we couldn't be happier with the result. Also the table came packed better than any other product I have ever received. Seriously, if there were an award for packing, the Weld House would win by a mile.
