Hey Bro, See You At The Reunion- In A Quarter Century — Dave’s Diary

I grew up the middle child of three.  My sister Sandy is 2 years older.  My brother Al is 3 years younger. Seems like a typical family of the 1950’s.  To be honest I was sort of the outsider.  My interests didn’t match up with theirs so I spent a lot of time hunting, hiking and exploring on my own

Fast Food Survey -Get It Quick, Get It Right, Get It With A Smile -Dave’s Diary

Rapid City Plaza Captures Casper’s Interest – Yakima, Are You Listening? — Dave’s Diary

Next Monday evening Catherine Gustafson will be back to town with greater detail on the proposed plaza plan for downtown Yakima.  You are invited to check it out starting at 6:30 at the Seasons Performance Hall.

Keep in mind the main purpose for the plaza is economic revitalization and while there are no 100% guarantees there is plenty of evidence that a well designed plaza can help spur the economy.  The latest example of that comes from an article in a Casper, Wyoming newspaper.

Casper wants what Yakima wants and Casper has seen it already at work in Rapid City, South Dakota.  Their success can be Casper’s and it can be Yakima’s too.

Red Wine or Gym Shoes? It’s Your Call — Dave’s Diary

I know this is the weekend for the Fresh Hop Ale Fest, and I know I should be writing about beer, but this is too good to pass up. And besides, wine grape harvest is in full swing, too.

I just received a Facebook post from a friend who used to work in broadcasting in Yakima.  He knows full well the importance of wine in these parts and he was happy to share this kind of news with me as I am with you! Cheers!
