Rough-and-tumble challenges, along with exciting opportunities, were in the offing for anyone ready to roll up their sleeves and get busy!

Described as a “savvy businesswoman,” Hanna became the co-owner of the Edmonds Review, only five months after businessman Richard Bushell, Jr established the masthead.

Jon Snow Crow

Category : Service Business

Jon Snow Crow went North to go fishing… far North. Beyond a great wall where he saw no other living soul. After an epic battle he conquered and caught a great big monster of a fish and brought it home. As soon as he got home he started getting these odd feelings. Aggressive crows lingered around the house and he felt like his prized catch, mounted on his wall, was following his every move. Was he going crazy? Had the cold winter clouded his perception?

Each year, the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. He’s gotta pick this one. He’s got to. I don’t see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one. You can look around and there’s not a sign of hypocrisy. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see.
