I like to move it
Anything for a Guinness: The historic Weyerhaeuser Office Building was moved to its new home on the Everett waterfront. The move was the building’s third in its 93-year history. Port of Everett staff are looking to see if that might be some kind of record (above).
If it’s not a record, the building will be moved 5 inches to the left, then back again to qualify.
Bring some bread: Starbucks bought a high-end bakery business with plans to offer freshly baked bread and other premium items at 2,000 of its deluxe stores where it sells its Reserve coffee (Page A7).
One of those stores is at Seattle’s original location on Pike Street. But if that’s still too far to drive, may we suggest a Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop-Tart and a cup of Folger’s.
Don’t know much about history: On this day in 1799, French soldiers in Egypt discovered the Rosetta Stone, which was instrumental in deciphering ancient hieroglyphs (Today in History, Page D6).
One phrase was key to decoding the ancient writing: “The white zone is for loading and unloading of chariots only.”
