Teeing Off: Pets ready to rumble
Disclaimer: Gizmo and I know nothing about boxing. Diddly. Squat. Zilch. Wala. We spend 95 percent of our time together watching the Mariners and the Seahawks. The other five percent is spent on walks. Since we live in an equal opportunity sports house, we can’t look past Saturday’s marquee bout between Manny Pacquiao — Kodiak’s unofficial mayor — and Floyd Mayweather Jr..

Mountain View: Painful experiences shared in birth, hunting
There I was, in the throes of labor. Covered in sweat, holding the hand of a girlfriend. Trying to remember to breath, relax and not work against myself. The complex hormones of labor made my body shake. It was the hardest work I've ever done or probably ever will do — giving birth.

There is an urgency to my mission because the timing is quite precise. One must locate the plant while it is very young and before the frond unfurls. If harvested too late, the fern could poison you. Yes, there truly is a James Bond- dismantle th...
