If you are looking for a great guacamole recipe for the festivities this weekend, we recommend this one. Considering the blue and green nature of this snack, every Seahawk table should include some variation of this smashed avocado appetizer.
Get your blue and green on! We all know what week it is - especially if you happen to live in Hawkuiam. You have to appreciate the spirit Jack Durney, mayor of Hoquiam — excuse me, that is, Hawkuiam this week — for his town spirit. In our neck of the wooded Washington state, colors are flying over both harbors and spirits are high. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know well that the home team is once again in the championship.
The Rev. Roger Coleman, Pilgrim Chapel: For those of us who come to faith not through study of holy writ or acceptance of revered traditions but by reflection on everyday experiences, the story of Balaam and his donkey offers a confusing hodgepodge of incidents.
Dear Abby: My wife and I have been married for quite a while, and our intimate life became monotonous and unimaginative a long time ago. Over the years I have suggested we try things like role-playing and other non-extreme variations during intimate times. My suggestions were met with rolling eyes and retorts like, “I’m your wife, not a hooker.” I finally gave up and try to be content with what we have together.
The new year has rolled in with some new news that sounds like old news, but, that is the joy of living on the beach—the more it changes the more it remains the same.

Dear Abby: I am considered to be a quite attractive — easily a nine or a 10 — professional dancer here in Las Vegas. I recently met a guy who has literally met almost all my dream qualities for a life partner, husband and father of my future children.
Dear Abby: We have a couple of daughters who have told us we must take off our shoes if we visit them (and our beautiful grandchildren). Although I’m not sure of their reasons for this, I do know for sure that we have never tracked any kind of dirt into their house when we visited. In fact, our shoes are always clean.

Dear Abby: My 7-year-old granddaughter, “Kelly,” wanted a dollhouse for Christmas. I had a friend build a basic frame, shingled roof, chimney and shutters, then I decorated it.
