RANT to the Seattle Department of Transportation. They are turning Northeast 68th Street into a safe bicycle-commuting route, which I support. However, one day last week, “No Parking” signs suddenly appeared at our intersection with no prior notice. We moved our car out of the brand new no-parking zone, but our neighbors were out of town to take their daughter to college. Fortunately, the grandmother showed up and was able to move their car the next day, which was a good thing because parking enforcement officers showed up shortly thereafter. How about giving people in the neighborhood advance notice, please? 

RANT AND RAVE Rave to Bellevue Square mall for the directories showing a map with numbered store locations. Rant for not placing numbers on the outside of the stores. It is difficult to know your location once you leave the directory and enter the maze of corridors.
