No thanks, I’ll just have the white fish preserved in lye and cooked to the consistency of jelly: Ikea, the Scandinavian furniture giant, has pulled its Swedish meatballs from store shelves in Europe because of evidence the meatballs may contain horse meat.

Ask a Geoduck: Those planning to grow marijuana when the state begins legally selling pot won’t be able to ask a local master gardener or county extension agent for advice on growing cannabis. The extension offices run by Washington State University are federally funded and by law can’t coach pot growers.

I am Joe’s colon: With the goal of educating the public about colorectal cancer, a nonprofit group is bringing a 20-foot-long inflatable, walk-through model of a human colon to Everett Mall. The giant colon shows examples of healthy tissue, polyps and various stages of colorectal cancer.
A reminder: If you see black light posters and Insane Clown Posse T-shirts for sale, you are not touring the Super Inflatable Colon; you are inside Spencer Gifts.
