El Grande

From Pike Place to Bogota: Starbucks has opened its first store in one of the world's leading coffee producers: Colombia.

Although some were thrilled with Starbucks' arrival, Colombian coffee TV spokesman Juan Valdez wasn't about to trade in his straw hat for a green apron — and absolutely refused to try a iced hazelnut soy macchiato with extra whip.

Virtual estate: A legal advisory panel has endorsed a plan that would give loved ones access to a deceased person's digital accounts. If the plan becomes state law, our online lives could become part of our estates, along with our physical possessions.

What a great new way to cut a disfavored child out of your will: “To my favorite son Arthur, I leave all my money and property. To my irresponsible son Rodney, I leave my collection of links to informative articles on the AARP website.”

Maladroit MacGyver: A man who used an improvised flamethrower to kill a spider wound up causing $60,000 in damage to his West Seattle home.

The man was furnished with temporary housing and a rolled-up newspaper in case it contained spiders.
