But, you can’t visit Seattle unless you take time to visit these 3 places, too, in my opinion; Mount Rainier, Woodinville, and San Juan Island.

Can We Stop Blaming Millennials People?

Millennials are mainly children of Baby Boomers and some Generation X.  They are 18-35 years old and they are my children and the children of my peers. We raised these so called Millennials and the fact that the world is complaining about and blaming Millennials implies that some of us did not do our jobs well. Does this mean the Baby Boomers and Generation Xers…
