• And last post today:
    I have a ceiling light fixture with “fake” stained glass shade that I found in the barn. Free!

  • Who needs a never-used commercial chafing dish? Not me! How about you?

  • Hey folks: Downsizing continues! I have a beautiful Craftsman-style reddish oak queen size bed frame with headboard/back board. Has some small scratches and one large scratch that no one will ever notice. $50 Email me for a photo.

  • Is anyone using Spectrum internet services? If so, can you tell me if you get decent internet services? Thanks!

    • Haha… I should be so lucky to have choices. It’s either CenturyLink or one of the satellite companies. And I’m grateful for that. Until recently, CenturyLink didn’t reach this far for Internet.

    Hi folks: Anyone interested in computer hutch for free? I can send photos via email.

    Computer/Mini Office Hutch
    I used this for years as a mini-office/billpaying center. It has enough storage to keep track of monthly bills, receipts, and a central place for quick access to items used daily or weekly. It’s 15 years old so has some scratches h…[Read more]

  • Hello,
    We are missing our grey cat, Smokey, since Monday, June 24. We live at Bates and Bristol roads, and would appreciate any leads you may have. There are a lot of ways a cat can go missing, but we hope she’s just hanging out with a neighbor.
    Thank you!

  • The pile of discarded household items (refrigerator etc.) at the intersection of Snowden and Staats Roads seems to be growing. I don’t know whether someone is collecting things there and planning to dispose of them later, “offering” these items to passersby, or simply dumping them and expecting someone else to clean up the mess. In any case, it’s…[Read more]

    Anyone else experiencing slowdowns or gaps in mail delivery? We have noticed that Netflix DVDs seem to be taking 2-3 days longer to arrive than just a few months ago. Some days we get no mail at all, which is a noticeable change for us.

    • Hi Dawn, et. al.:
      Yes, we also have been quite disappointed with the decrease in quality of mail delivery the last couple of years or so. Among the changes: erratic delivery times (sometimes four or more hours later than was customary), no deliveries as anticipated (from the USPS daily e-mails to us*), considerably more items mis-delivered…[Read more]

      • Thanks for letting me know about Informed Delivery; it’s the first I’ve heard of it and it appears to be a free service.

        According to a chart I found online at USPS, Hamilton became postmaster of the White Salmon post office in April 2017. In September 2018, Elizabeth Slotterbeck was appointed Officer-in-Charge (which seems to be a de facto…[Read more]

        • We have experienced the same frustrating examples you site: no mail at all on some days which is completely out of the norm for us, much misdelivered mail, erratic delivery times. We were told by someone (sorry that I can’t remember who) that those who bid to become rural delivery carriers must pass tests much as the onsite employees do, but…[Read more]

    • We surely do understand the feeling of inadequacy expressed. We have Informed Delivery. Friday, we received the usual e-mail advising that we were to receive mail. NOTHING!!! I checked again Saturday morning to be sure the delivery was not super late and there still was nothing in the box. I do not believe that the delivery person ever…[Read more]

    • Yes, we waited about two weeks longer than expected for a delivery of a package of important documents.

  • We have some “hold over” items from the day when we had five children in various stages of high school or beyond. It seemed we were spending many hours on very hard stadium bleachers. We have and no longer need;
    Folding seats that attach to bleachers and provide back rest. etc. There are two of them.
    Back pack style BEACH CHAIR
    These are free…[Read more]

  • Hi All~ We are in need of a “Honey Do”. My sweetie was injured shoveling snow this year, and is still recuperating! Gah. We need help with everything from gardening, tree removal, weeding, brush burns, to aiding in clearing trails. Our dream person, someone with a casual schedule, perhaps even weekdays, loves the outdoors, and is happy to lea…[Read more]

      • Mind you, one megabit is 1/8 megabyte. Megabits are used for speed measurement to make the speed sound eight times faster to those non-geeky folks who don’t know a bit from a byte. In other words, most everyone.

  • Hi, Scott:
    RE: Email status
    The SCG website currently appears to be experiencing the same problem I’ve mentioned to you twice that’s sporadically been occurring over the last couple of years: I.e., we can’t get posted announcements automatically emailed to us. Whenever I click under either of the two links — “Get email updates…[Read more]

    • I had a few database updates to do. I’m hoping that was the problem. Can you give it another try?

      • Hi again, Scott:
        Yes, the “EmaiI Status/Email Options” choice that we personally selected ( “All Email”) now once again DOES appear to be operating property: it had “stuck” this time when I closed down and reopened the SCG website; and I just received an email (as I properly should have) of your posting on the website. THANKS AGAIN for h…[Read more]

  • Some years ago, I was involved in a very large communications engineering project. In order to get the primary actors together on a regular basis without all of us driving nearly 100 miles, we used internet meetings. It worked great and saved hundreds of bucks and dozens of hours. That life is now behind me ( I am retired) A short time ago, I came…[Read more]

  • Hello neighbors! I’m located up at the top of Snowden Rd, and I wanted to spread the word that that our ranch (pasture-raised specialty meats and eggs) is doing free home deliveries to addresses on Snowden and Bates Rd this year as part of our farm membership/CSA. I’ll keep this short and sweet, so please feel free check out our website…[Read more]

    • HI Neighbors! We have been members of Horseradish Ranch’s CSA, and we recommend it highly! It’s been such a blessing to walk out our door to discover what treats we receive in our cooler every month… The meat is excellent, and there are recipes in the monthly newsletter to augment each months offerings. We are huge fans, and adore Horseradish…[Read more]

    We were trying to figure out how to clear our driveway back when we first got the big snow. We looked down the driveway and what to out wondering eyes should appear but our neighbor Dustin Dennis in a new (to him) road grader. Over the years, Dusty has done a fine job for us and we appreciate his efforts on our behalf. He lives on Sleepy Hollow…[Read more]

    A friend that lives on Staats Road let us know that he had identified a River Otter that has taken up residence in the pond that is near the intersection of Snowden Road and Staats Roads. The otter seems to be frequenting the east end. Great binocular viewing.
