Businesses that win “World’s Best” are highlighted by the local people who have taken the time to vote for their favorite gift shop, chiropractor, toy store, and even, Best Radio Station. Banners get made for the different winners, and “bragging rights” (humbly of course). Remember this is a vote by the people, making it highly respectable, and helps highlight companies that just plain rock. Just to be nominated is a really cool feeling. It’s like, “Hey! Someone noticed us!”
Since I was a little girl, I have ridden down Highway 97 between Brewster and East Wenatchee. I could almost do the drive with my eyes closed, but I won’t because, well I do value life. But one question I have never been able to answer, until now. How many fruit stands are there between Beebe Bridge on Highway 97 to East Wenatchee? Plenty of orchards and fruit, and plenty of fruit stands!
A couple of months ago you might remember that NASA was able to successfully crash their DART (Double Asteroid Redirection Test) spacecraft into the asteroid Dimorphos, which deflected the 530 foot rock off its course. The NASA scientist cried (with joy) like I cried (like a baby who needed their diapers changed) watching the Steve Carell/Keira Knightly romantic/drama, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World.
I was chatting with a listener on the request line who was heading home from work, looking forward to more snow to fall in the Wenatchee Valley. “Really?”, I asked. “Yes! The snow is beautiful!”, she replied. “I love it!” My jaw dropped, stunned. “Well…ah…ok.”
Anyone who knows me, knows I’m a workaholic. I love what I do. It gives me the opportunity to be creative in so many ways. But when I look back at all the things I did in 2022, there were less than a handful of fun things that I did. And they were all work related. I rarely got out. I get out out bed, head into work. After work, I go home, take a shower, go to bed. Are you like me? Eek! I hope not. Maybe you’re not as bad as me. So how can we make a change? It all boils down to two things.
