RANT to realtors. My husband and I purchased a home in Seattle in 1993 and continue to live together at the same address. All records of sale and tax records have always been in both of our names. Yet, over the years, my husband continues to receive letters from various realtors addressed only to him expressing an interest in purchasing the property. My name appears nowhere on the letters. Are they unaware or merely careless? Insulting me is not a good way to get our business when we do decide to sell.

RAVE to Rick from Lakewood who stopped snowboarding at Snoqualmie Pass the other week to make sure I was OK after I fell and hit my head pretty good. He stayed with me, asked pertinent medical questions, sent his son for ski patrol and then helped me to the nearest cabin. These are the superheroes of our community!
