Don’t Phuck with Phinney!

My Horsesass.org post on a neighborhood meeting last night best described as a quiet riot:

Several representatives of what we ’60s types like to call The Youth of Today were there and gave the board an earful. Why were they holding a “public” meeting when they couldn’t represent the views of the public in their decision-making? What would it take to get the project shut down?

“We’re saying we don’t want this thing,” one high-schooler said. “We’d like you to tell us how to make it go away.”

Our House In Seattle

Here’s a little about who we are and our house in Seattle.

Cecile (cecileandrews.com) is a former community college administrator, has her doctorate in education from Stanford, and is the author of Circle of Simplicity, Slow is Beautiful, and Less is More. Paul, a former Seattle Times technology columnist, is the co-author of Gates, the biography of Bill, and How the Web was Won. He is an avid mountain bike rider and hosts the Web site, Bike Intelligencer. He also manages a number of Web sites.

Hello from Seattle!

Hello from our back yard in Seattle!

We are always accompanied by our Bichon Frise, Millie. Which is one reason we offer to allow a small dog as well.

Our house in Seattle was built in 1929, has hardwood floors, and a gas fireplace insert. It is close to, and has a view of, Green Lake (a small lake, 3 miles around, heavily used by walkers and bicyclists). Our house is adjacent to the Woodland Park Zoo and a big city park with picnic areas, tennis courts, soccer and baseball fields, and oval running tracks. We are about 3 miles west of the University of Washington, 4 miles north of downtown Seattle, and about 4 miles east of Puget Sound.

We live in the Phinney Ridge neighborhood, a casual, relaxed, neighborhood committed to progressive issues and sustainability. It is close to a small business district with an independent bookstore, small cafes, good restaurants and two bus lines. We’re just blocks from the Puget Consumers Co-op, one of the oldest food co-ops in the country.

Here are some photos, and feel free to contact us with questions, etc. Cecile is cecile@cecileandrews.com and Paul is paul@paulandrews.com. Or simply click here.
