There's Something Concretely Wrong With The Parking Lot Repairs

Look, sports fans, when you have to coordinate repairs around one's apartment complex, you have to have a plan, right? Well, those with the apartment working with the contractors overlooked something in regards to navigable entrances.

Just so y'all know, they've initiated concrete repairs on the parking lots and the sidewalks, an undertaking which will likely take a couple of weeks. Inconveniences galore. I say that because, at this time, an entire south section...

Dumbed down food at ethnic restaurants

Posted 09-29-2022 at 06:58 PM by jbgusa

Last Friday, after dropping my wife off at LaGuardia Airport I decided to sample a tamale restaurant in nearby Corona, Queens. The restaurant was Evelia's Tamale's, 96-09 Northern Blvd, Queens, NY 11368. This is a heavily Hispanic area but I love that and other spicy, exotic foods. After placing my breakfast order, I heard the cashier whisper, in Spanish "he's American." I interjected that I want the food made "their way." They asked "do you like it spicy" and I said...

And to the southwest of Spur 10, a recently-constructed stretch from there to the middle of Kendleton...

Nothing's Changed In The Automotive Service Business

Posted 09-26-2022 at 05:59 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Ask almost any consumer, and you'll see that people must sometimes deal with B.S. every time one wants honesty. I took my Toyota in today to my dealer and their service area just loves playing musical chairs from one visit to the next. No two service advisors will ever be the same.

And this afternoon's visit (as I write this chickenscratch, of course) saw me needing to get only two air filters replaced. That's all I requested. Well, my advisor for today's visit...

A well-designed system integrating batteries and generator can be more fuel-efficient
