RANT to all who use dryer sheets whose fragrance wafts through the neighborhood — there are many people with asthma, allergies, COPD and fragrance intolerance that cannot tolerate fragrance. Please be more considerate of your neighbors with health issues.

RAVE to Seattleites who have taken out their lawns in favor of native plants that help birds and pollinators! Some even leave their old seed heads and leaf litter over the winter, which helps even more. This is making neighborhood walks so much more fun!

RANT to the driver in a Grey Mercedes who was driving in front of me on South Graham Street recently. Was it really necessary to throw your bag of unfinished McDonald’s out your car window onto the street? If everyone would just show a little more respect for our city and the environment, maybe Seattle could return to being the beautiful city it was not so long ago.
