In the past couple of weeks, my chicken house looks like several chickens have spontaneously combusted… it’s a cloud of feathers. But every chicken is, luckily, accounted for.
It’s just my Easter-egger going through a late-season molt.
On their first Christmas together, my parents purchased a simple red aluminum foil star for the top of their small tabletop Christmas tree.
In the snapshot they stand on either side of the tree. The star has a large hole in the center, obviously meant for a tree light to be inserted from the back.
Ah, Thanksgiving. A time for friends and family to gather around the table in love and friendship, so that we may all sit down, say grace, and stuff our faces full of delicious foods drenched in butter and cream.
At this point, what I really should tell you about is this delectable little recipe I am sharing with you for your holiday table. But what I really want to tell you about is how I’m getting a turkey on a plane for Thanksgiving.
Shirts with big hearts are big right now, but despite the fad I actually think they are pretty cool.
I’ve had a few old cashmere sweaters awaiting crafting and this was the perfect short-attention-span craft: cut out a heart, sew it on a shirt.
We surf all over Alaska. And, the real story is the incredible Alaskan coastline with its immense wilderness areas and awe inspiring weather.
The video series will show what it’s like to venture out into this incredible scenery at times when the weather is not necessarily hospitable.
There comes a time in every woman’s life when her grit, determination, and willpower are put to the test. A time when resolve and fortitude are challenged in a epic battle of skill, creativity, and knowledge.
Of course, I’m talking about the Alaska Sustainable Seafood Cookoff! The Challenge: Four duos battle it out in one hour to produce the best seafood dish for 5 local foodie judges.
My friend Pauline died recently. From the time I heard that she was ill, and since she passed, I spent a lot of time thinking about the dynamo that was Pauline and the times when our paths crossed.
Pauline and I were friends, but not best friends. We didn’t hang out together, giggle about boys, or share our innermost teenage angst. Were we not classmates at Anchorage High School, we most likely never would have met.
Mt. Edgecumbe High School student Shanelle Afcan delivered a powerful commentary last week on Sitka’s KCAW Raven Radio about the disappearance of her Alaska Native culture.
The club hosts a youth-led, hour-long monthly radio show on the local public radio station. The show connects the Sitka community to the student community by breaking down youth stereotypes.
The Youth Action Committee (YAC), of the Juneau Community Foundation, requests proposals from Juneau non-profit organizations and schools to promote success in high school by increasing awareness of the range of Post Secondary opportunities available for high school graduates.
With the help of the Juneau Community Foundation and local organizations, YAC members strive to improve the lives of their peers.
With Thanksgiving on the horizon, Extension has released a four-minute video to demonstrate methods for even procrastinating cooks to safely defrost a turkey.
Roxie Dinstel, a Fairbanks Extension agent, advises cooks to keep the turkey out of the “temperature danger zone” of 40 to 140 degrees.
Earlier this year we enjoyed an intimate celebration with the Harbeson, Chapman, Barlow family complete with carrot cake, sparkling cider, hugs, and a few proud tears.
In the conference room at Mat-Su Title, with a lovely view of Wasilla lake, we finalized the conservation easement on their historic thirty acre homestead including O’Brien Creek Estuary, overlooking Knik Arm.
Anchorage community members have been brainstorming ways to make Town Square a safer place. One proposed solution is to play classical music into Town Square to discourage illicit behavior and loitering.
Alaska Teen Media Institute’s Barae Hirsch interviewed teens and park goers about what they thought of this idea.
There’s good news on the generosity front in Alaska. The PFD Charitable Contributions Program – Pick.Click.Give. – continues to grow in three core metrics: number of Alaskans contributing, total amount they are giving, and percentage of participants among those who file for their dividend online.
Earlier this year, 26,093 Alaskans used Pick.Click.Give. to donate part or all of their $900 dividend to causes they support.
Tallyfunder.com provides a new way to support Alaskan non-profit organizations. It is the first crowdfunding site from Alaska, and began funding October 14.
Crowdfunding is very much what it sounds like, a crowd of different people coming together to fund something they care about.
Today we’re checking out music videos. Alaskan songwriter Marian Call recently released the first music video for her 2011 album Something Fierce.
Call says the video began last year as part of her Kickstarter campaign, when she took a poll from her fans.
Today we’re going to dance class. Three months ago in midtown Anchorage, Studio Pulse opened its doors as the cities newest modern dance studio. Stephanie Wonchala is the founder of the Pulse Dance Company, and runs the studio.
The classes offered at Studio Pulse are wide ranging to say the least.
