    Brother? Is that a reference to being a black person? I’m only asking because I’m from the U.K.

    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    Iím traveling south for the winter now, but I live across the sound in Bremerton. Seattle now holds the same appeal to most people here.

    Agreed, it used to be a cool place to go for and evening out. Not so much any more.

    I like North Bend. It’s a cool little town. It’s close to a couple of small ski areas.

    If I had meant that I would have said it as "brother", but no, he is actually my sibling brother who lives in North Bend.

    I ate at Twin Peaks restaurant a couple of times when I was there. I had a sister that lived in Federal Way.
    I drove my mom from LaPorte, IN to North Bend, a four day, three night trip. She and my sister both passed away within a few months of each other. I flew that time and took the train back to Chicago. That was a nightmare.
    They have some really weird laws about being loud in a bar in North Bend.............you can be arrested for being too loud. 3 brothers in a bar??? Quiet? Really????
