Somehow, these artifacts have survived through dozens of moves, various countries, storage lockers and culling of items. As such, they are now rather proudly displayed here for the historical record. At risk of presenting evidence of peaking early, i see these as polishing skills and preparing for future acts, including impending/current act 3 (but who’s counting?).
These are ribbons (obv) form various events (duh) including science fairs (detailed elsewhere in this archive), plus from collections and art displayed at NW Washington Fair in Lynden (our kin lived there and, as such we spent a lot of time there and participated in the fair).

Rebecca Bollwitt MC’s Best of 604 Awards Photo by penmachine
Who won the podcasting category, you ask? [Insert drum roll] The winner was Lip Gloss and Laptops. After the Credits was a long shot, so no surprise is wasn’t us. I don’t know Kerry Ann but I’ve spoken with Airdrie a couple times. She’s good people and the win is well deserved. And I can’t not mention runner up,Choogle On With Uncle Weed. Dave, a.k.a. Uncle Weed, is a consummate story teller and he does it well.
And a shout-out to Rebecca (Miss 604) for all her hard work and a job well done. Thanks to her, $1800 was raised for the food bank and our little corner of the world had a top-up of cheer and goodwill.
Awards ceremonies always stir up commotion and controversy – i thought the Stone Cutters controlled the outcome of all major awards (but i digress … ) – and Best of 604 is no different. With 2 days left of voting, the jockeying for the coveted spots is getting intense.
For my part, i want more political coverage! See, most of my friends are lefty-head-in-the-clouds and these so-called “progressives” don’t give me the straight edge view that the (often dangerously reactionary) Narvey provides.
I’ve lived in Utah and seen how the deep conservatives operate, and Narvey isn’t *that* offside but … still he offers up the rightie punditry i require for expanding my mind. With William F. Buckley dead, someone has to carry the affable, true-con role.
