RANT To the man riding a bike on a busy street with a small child hanging on his back with her arms around his neck and feet around his waist. They weren’t wearing helmets. What would have happened if she was startled by something? On the same day I saw a small child hanging out of the rear window of a car. Parents, please be more aware of your kids!

RAVE To the Fisher Scone ladies at the Bite of Seattle who gave me a free iced tea and extra scones when my special order took far longer than promised. They embody the best in customer service, and the scones were yummy!
