I Visited the Full Moon Thai Cuisine restaurant (@1441 NW Richmond Beach Rd, Shoreline, WA 98177) and picked up a call in order I had ordered just 10 minutes earlier. I  found;  the food was ready  the food was hot and packaged  the food was fresh  the staff was friendly and out going and was easy to understand My food was very good ( a tad spicy ) and of good quantity for the price...I highly recommend the Full Moon Thai restaurant for a good take out experience...   I give it a 4 out of 5 Stars!   This post was authored and photo taken  by Paul Henderson. ©2013, All Rights Reserved, This content may not be reproduced or reprinted (Except for ActiveRain Re-blogging) without express written permission of Paul Henderson, RE/MAX Professionals, Tacoma, WA.

  What do you do when you have a bunch of kids with nothing to do?  Well you can have them cut the grass around all the storm water retention ponds located all around the city.  These ponds are located inside fenced areas that under normal conditions utilize the fences to keep the kids out.  But it now seems, the city is using the fences to keep the kids in---and off the street.  These fenced in areas tend to get overgrown with grass and brambles and become difficult to maintain.  Whoever came up with the idea to reverse the purpose of the fence was a genius! Of course if you have kids inside these fenced-in areas, it is also a good idea to have some adult supervision.  So why not make it a family experience?  At this retention pond at the corner of NE 170th ST and 15 Ave NE, near my ho...

  It seems like all we ever hear is stories about how crappy contractors are today, or how difficult it is to find someone competent to do the jobs we need done around our homes. Good luck to any contractor trying to please a home inspector! It is my pleasure, in this post, to recommend the roofing company, Metal Roof Specialties that recently installed a new standing-seam, steek roof on our house. Our roof had been headed toward replacement for quite some time and when it actually started leaking this past Thanksgiving we finally realized that we had to look seriously at options for replacement. I was pretty adamant that we were not going to install another asphalt roof on our house without considerable gnashing of teeth.  Out of respect for the planet and dwindling resources I wanted ...
