Memorabilia is a wonderful thing, and there’s nothing wrong with having some nice keepsakes to remind us of the places, people and events in our lives that hold a lot of meaning. My wife says I hang onto too much, but that’s another story.
There’s also nothing wrong with spending good money on a great object of value that reminds me of something historic or unique. If I see something nice and wait until later, it may well be gone by the time I’m ready to order. I always regret those missed opportunities for a long time.
But do I really want to spend $300 on the Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl Express? Not only that, but do I want to be FOOLED into spending that much money on a plastic model train set with four cars and a 3-by-5-foot oval track?

Issaquah is one of the state’s best places to settle down for retirement, according to GangsAway!, a retirement planning website.
In light of the fervor surrounding the Seattle Seahawks, website founder Moira McGarvey took a look at some of the Pacific Northwest’s top retirement locations in an article on the Huffington Post Post50 platform.
McGarvey described Issaquah as one of the top choices because it’s “affordable, close to Seattle, in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains.”

Not only do we Western Washingtonians have the best football team in the country, but we have many great Olympians as well.
It bowls me over to hear about our Northwest contribution to the rest of the country, not just in sports but also in health care, technology and aeronautics. Our unemployment isn’t too high, and our economy seems to be bubbling along. On top of that, to the chagrin of everybody else, we just happen to have the best climate in the continental United States. Shh! It’s a secret. Everybody else thinks it rains all the time, so let’s keep it that way.

More than one way to community unity
The community is still riding high on the wave of anticipation and celebration of Seahawks glory. It created a new wave of Northwest unity unlike anything in recent memory. Hold on to that feeling!
Coming up is another thriller — the 2014 Olympic Games, beginning Feb. 6. The pride of America grows with every gold medal earned and won in Sochi, Russia.
But let’s not miss out on another opportunity to make a difference in the esprit de corps right here at home. All you have to do is vote. It’s easy, it’s patriotic, it’s essential. And it unites us all.
