What's up northwest people? Anyone wanna get a little side group going, for folks in the Emerald city? We could share tips on our favorite local stores, doctors, safe restaurants, etc.Heck, maybe even just for some peace of mind knowing that a local person feels your pain!

They asked me never to come back to the Space Needle.An old friend lives in Seattle. I went to visit him a few years ago. We went to a few bars and we were, rather carelessly, over served.In our exuberance, we went up the Space Needle. There is a walkway around the top of the needle. On one side is a lovely view. On the other side there are windows where people eating in the restaurant can enjoy the view.We found it rather amusing to crawl along the walkway, then suddenly leap up, startling the people in the restaurant in what we found a quite hysterical manner.The security staff disagreed and suggested we find other ways to amuse ourselves as they were escorting us from the premises. Now, whenever I see the Space Needle, I recall the expressions on the diner's faces and I can't help but laugh.Good luck on your group, all the same.

Man, that sounds like fun. I might even drive down for something like that depending on the day and the weather. I just have to tell myself, it's only 86 miles.....
Is there such a thing as IBS safe recipes? I never thought about it. Wow, learn something new everyday.

I don't know what's going on. I just tried to log in over there, but it's now saying that I don't exist in their database, but I posted the other day. Grrrrrr. I guess I'll just have to register again. Where and when are you thinking about holding the Seattle support group? I'm not quite sure when the best time for me would be, but I'd have to say, a more northern location would be better for me as I know the territory around Lynnwood a bit better.

Oh, I know what happened... you were on the IBS Message Boards and my NEW post was the IBS Support Boards which you do need two login accounts (which culd be the same names)...they are two different databases. Sorry about that....I'm not sure of the location yet... I just started researching it today. I'm in West Seattle but a lot of the hospitals that I think we would get a great responce from is the Capitol Hill area... just like I said, I'm just now looking for a location. I'm trying to find somewhere that will not charge us for the room. And I don't know if it would be best to do it on a weekday or a weekend?? Will have to see what kind of interest there really is out there. But, I will keep ya posted!!P.S. This is totally seperate from the Cookie Exchange in Dec!!

Ahhh, yes, I figured out what the problem on the other board was. It's all fixed. Between weekdays or weekends is a tough call. Especially for me. I think if I came once a month (that would be fairly realistic), weekends probably would be better. Otherwise, I'd get stuck in serious traffic or have to come to Seattle for the whole day. Unless I took the bus, but then I have issues of having to take a taxi or something.

Yes, I'm thinking like a Sat afternoon...it is hard to get to a meeting in the evenings in Seattle...traffic sucks! LOL And most of the places that I have looked at close at 7-8pm so that does not give much time.I'm thinking 60-90 min meetings should be fine...until we get bigger we might need longer.
