Nyc

I agree with the Hop On, Hop Off bus for an overview. In Times Square, there is a booth in Duffy Square that has half price tickets to selected shows. There are different times to line up to get...

Sporto

I have always been satisfied with Sporto. HSN sells them. I do have cheaper rain boots I got at Target. I use them to walk the dog in the rain, and they have held up well.

How sad and insulting...

I hate that in many cases, the expectation is that everyone be doing the same thing in a robotic fashion. Creativity and being able to think for yourself as a professional about what is best for your...

That's terrible...

I am retired now, but it seems that these rubric-based evaluation systems seem to empower and bring out the worst in many administrators. Disrespectful and insensitive to whom? It seems to me that he...

So glad it turned out well for you both. Hopefully, the mechanic will fix the problem permanently. I recently returned from a 2 week trip to the Deep South. My car is old and high mileage, but I had...

My experience with the Toyota dealership I bought my car at is exactly the opposite of yours. I have an ancient Matrix with over 180,000 miles. The reason it has been on the road so long is their...

I agree...

Loved it!

I saw it when it first came to my area a few weeks ago. She is a true hero and it was a wonderful film. Highly recommend. And, I learned things about her I didn't know.
