A few weeks ago, as I walked past the Linny Pacillo parking garage at the end of the day, I heard a bark. And then a yip.
A bright new blog that I highly recommend is Ninth Star: Inspiration from the Last Frontier. I’m stealing some of Wanetta Ayer’s brilliance by posting this on my blog, but hopefully you’ll visit her page to check out this awesome post: Alaska, The App about Bob Kaufman.
It is an exciting time for Anchorage’s libraries. During the last few years, with significant help from library advocates, volunteers, service groups, the private sector, and city and state government, we’ve built new libraries in Girdwood and Mountain View, upgraded existing libraries in Eagle River and Muldoon, added a teen center in Loussac, and engaged the community in planning for Anchorage Public Library’s future.
I recently discovered Peter Shankman, founder of HARO, self-described “CEO. Angel Investor. Entrepreneur. Adventurist.”
A good friend of mine is getting ready to vacation in Mexico. I have to say, I’m a bit envious of her as I look out my window to a mostly gray day and shiver. I’m more than ready for some hot sun in my life, or at least green grass and leaves on the trees! I long to wander down a street in Mexico, warm air on my skin, flip-flops on my feet, and music in the air.
Sometimes when I drive to work, I detour to one of my favorite stretches of road. I cruise by Wonderbread’s Sunrise Bakery, past the cool new Hillcrest/Spenard sign, and down the hill.
