How about a family holiday visit to Downtown Seattle? Here's where to go

I know a lot of people who live on the east side or the south Sound or north of Seattle who say they never venture into Downtown Seattle. Too much traffic, too crowded, too much crime, too many homeless people, too expensive, too hard to park . . . . you know the drill. I'm a city dweller, so I...

Teddy at Newcastle Beach Park

Teddy Discovers Newcastle Beach Park

While I haven't lived here very long, I learned right away that when the sun is shining, I'd better get outside to enjoy it. This past weekend was no exception. My dog Teddy and I have gotten lots of suggestions for dog-friendly restaurants/pubs, but I figured I'd save those for a rainy day...

Dawson and his candy

Too much Halloween candy in your house? Turn it in for cash!

I don't know about you, but we have a giant mountain of candy in our house. The idea of my seven-year-old son (pictured above) eating it all, piece by piece, day after day, until he's gobbled up every last Butterfinger and Sweet Tart, is scarier than anything I saw on Halloween night. Well here's...

Meet The Sound's new morning show co-host, Jeanne Ashley

Here's a fact: Doing a morning radio show is more fun when you're not the only person in the studio. While I love interacting with listeners every day, there's nothing like an in-person human being in the same room to have a real conversation with. So after talking and meeting with many potential...
