Tiki bars started to spring up here in the United States after our military men came home from World War II. Specifically after serving in the South Pacific. Decking out bars designed with tropical decor, serving up such drinks like the Mai Tai, the Zombie, the Navy Grog, and the Jungle Bird. Served is creative tiki style mugs.
Winter seemed to have lasted longer than normal. Did we even have Autumn? Yeah, Spring is a comin’. And before we know it, Summer will arrive. Then we can really enjoy the best of the Wenatchee Valley! Yea! yea. Something’s missing. You still wanna get away, don’t you. What are you dreaming about? In general, most people mentioned “I just want to escape to the beach.” I can’t blame you.

If you’ve lived anywhere up and down the west coaster some time, from Alaska to Mexico, You’ve experienced a few Earthquakes. I grew up in LA, so all my life I’ve ridden some good ones. One of the most memorial actually happened 29 years ago. January 17, 1994. It famously became the beginning of my, Disneyland Hotel Earthquake Curse.
Yeah. National Nerd Day is a thing. When we were kids, that may have been an insult. But as an adult, for me at least, I’ve embraced the status. Perhaps maturity. Or perhaps the opposite, as it brings out the kid in me. And that brings us back full circle. lol.
I was chatting with a listener on the request line who was heading home from work, looking forward to more snow to fall in the Wenatchee Valley. “Really?”, I asked. “Yes! The snow is beautiful!”, she replied. “I love it!” My jaw dropped, stunned. “Well…ah…ok.”
