The Mountaintop

On the re-imagined eve of his assassination, we meet Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. weary, restless, and in a lonely motel room. Visited by a mysterious young woman and forced to confront the meaning of his life, his destiny, and his own humanity, we are given a glimpse into the person behind his revered leadership. Gripping, daring, and powerful, this play melds humanness with legacy, and mortality with spirituality. Your heart will be touched and your soul stirred. *strong language

Pat's view: Rain of terror

70 percent of the surface of our planet is covered by water---including Budweiser, Gatorade and drool.

Land and poor math students cover the other 45 percent.

After our unusually sunny summer, the return of Seattle rain is getting mixed reviews.

It hasn’t gotten quite torrential yet---and there’s no need to build an ark---but the autumnal weather has arrived. To some longtime dwellers, it’s like a reunion with an old friend---a soggy old friend who drenches us in reassuring familiarity.

But for other local folks, the return of the rain is akin to the re-arrival of an obnoxious relative---Uncle Earl, who sloshes through your front door unannounced and planning to stick around until at least next May.
An acquaintance from the Midwest once said to me, “No wonder you Seattle people have cornered so much of the market on coffee, craft brews and wine. You’ve got so much water to work with.” Based on that reasoning, we should also be the world leader in all other things liquid: water parks, picks, melons and nymphs---not to mention artificial tears, humidifiers and spittoons.

Fennel is a great cooking ingredient but if you are not careful it's so aggressive in the garden it will take over!

Fennel: A Love-Hate Relationship

by Chef Jeremy Mclachlan

My love and hate relationship for fennel is more on the love side than the hate. Fennel makes me smile by the amazing ways I can use it but it can make me cry the way it takes over my garden and keeps growing and growing and growing!

Fennel is an amazing versatile vegetable because you can use it in four different ways. Way one is the traditional use in salads, sautés and braised with mussels. Next is the spice derived from the seeds and used in Italian sausage and sauces or ground and made into a licorice-flavored salt. Third use is the fronds of this vegetable can be used as a fresh herb flavoring sauces, tossed in salads or to kick up smoked salmon. Last but not least is the hard-to-find pungent pollen that casts an amazing mouth-numbing anise flavor.
When planting this never-ending vegetable make sure you lock it up tight like a caged beast.
