Dear Crabby: PINING CO WORKER and COLLEGE AGE THUMB SUCKER - I've been divorced for almost 4 years, and except for having my son on weekends, I live alone. I've been working with the woman I love- and in very tight quarters. I have never known such caring kindness before, especially in a platonic relationship. She is thoughtful, giving, and generally wonderful.

It appears she is happy in her marriage, and I know I'm dreaming to think anything can come of this. The fact that we spend so much time alone together, laughing, talking, and working, makes me think there could be something there. She seems to like our 'interactions', and I live for the time we spend together. - Read more...

photosAlaska's Deepwater Highway; A part of Alaska history - When the first Alaska state ferry sailed northbound through the Inside Passage of Alaska on its maiden voyage in January of 1963, there was rejoicing along the entire route from Ketchikan to Haines at the head of Lynn Canal! At last! Cars and even trucks and vans could now travel to and from isolated island-bound towns all along the 450-mile length of Southeastern Alaska's Panhandle. At either end they could roll off the ferry's ramp onto terra firma, connected to road systems north or south! The roadless towns of the famed Inside Passage finally had a "highway" from Prince Rupert B.C. to Haines, Alaska - even if it happened to be paved with salt water and used marine charts instead of road maps. - Read the rest of this story by June Allen...
