Home- where your story begins……

97771087By Dr. Summer Beattie  |  Commonly seen as a wall quote, there is some truth to the statement.  I think the opposite is true as well: Home – it tells your story…..  If you are at all interested in history – the people,  places  and events that shared your piece of earth, only in another slice of time, then you know exactly what I mean.   Continue reading

Consider a Condo

470064081 (1)By Amanda Pilley  |  Condominiums fill a special niche in the housing market, somewhere between an apartment and a house.  The simplest way to think about it is that a condo is an apartment that a person owns.  Although a condo could look like anything, typically it will be one unit out of many in one large housing complex.  Ownership includes the living space inside the condo unit and a portion of the common areas, unlike owning a home, where the owner purchases the house and the land.  There are pros and cons to both types of housing, and lifestyle along with cost will be big factors in determining which is more suitable.

Keeping a Jobsite Contained

tapeBy: Greg Stopher | Stopher Construction  When it’s sunny in Juneau, as much as it was throughout the month of June, it’s hard to remember how much time we spend inside our homes on those not so sunny days. The air quality of our home is important. I’ve talked about indoor air quality in the past, but recently I’ve received questions regarding jobsite containment during a remodel or renovation project.  Continue reading

The art of decorating walls [ part two ]

By: Randi Wilson  In the art of decorating walls (part one), I focused on inexpensive do-it-yourself artwork and how to create displays that express your personal interests and style.  Many people believe the only other affordable option for decorating their walls is to purchase mass produced prints from big box stores. This is a great option if you’re looking to decorate your home with contemporary classics from the masters.  But, is there another option for those looking to start and invest in a collection of unique works?  Absolutely!  Don’t allow a tight budget to close the door on buying artwork. The second installment of my article will highlight resources for purchasing “real art” at great prices.   Continue reading

Letter from the Publisher

156505541Happy July everyone! Well I made it through June… What a month! Lovely wedding after wedding, sports, fishing, business, phew! When I think of July, I always think of Independence Day. I hope that everyone has a grand 4th of July holiday. I know I’ve talked about my personal Independence Day traditions but it’s too near and dear to my heart to not reminisce again! Typically my husband and I, and any family member we have on hand will venture downtown on the 3rd to watch the fireworks. We weave through the mass of people as we find a viewing spot.

Patriotic Currant Cake Recipe

490853831By Amber King | Currants are rich in antioxidants, manganese, potassium, dietary fiber and vitamin C.  I love them in jellies and jams, I’m known for going to great lengths to get currants, (and other berries) Warren Cove, on Warren Island on the Central Southeast Coast has some amazing wild currant bushes and I still have one coveted jar of black fruit jam that I made many, many years ago while salmon tendering in the area.  If there was a berry stop that summer, along would come a 107’ Bering Sea crabber/salmon tender to come berry picking! While it may not be most rational modes of berry picking transportation I’m sure many of you have similar or more exciting stories of secret and hidden berry patches in Southeast, they are rare and special places so share them with tiny people.  With Celebration over I’m sure many of you have some new recipes and ideas of what to do with your berry finds this summer.  For more information on currants in Alaska please check out.
