NewandLonely. You are obviously going through a very rough time in your private life right now. You have my genuine sympathy. As I'm sure you know, life is a series of peaks and valleys and you are certainly in a valley right now. Things will surely improve for you over the passage of time, although it probably doesn't look that way now. I wish you better days ahead.

I am 65 years old and have seen a lot of things decline in those years. The way things once were is never coming back. I don't like it but I can't change that situation - so I refuse to let it depress me. It's just life. Believe it or not, these are someone's "good ole days"!

Hang in there.

Default You can bring all the stores to Casa Grande

but you are not going to get the service! Ah-So is horrible for a high end restaurant. You can walk in and not even be acknowledged. Takes an hour to recieve our order nearly every time we have gone. Finally gave up due to the bartender Joe that had been there since the original opening has been MIA for a while. New girl doesn't have a clue how to make drinks. Sorry, but if I am going to spend my money in a place like that, I expect to be entertained.

There is very little culture here for a town that has grown so quickly, not much to do, people are not friendly, and your statements are a sad indictment of what is happening all over the USA. Chain stores put all the wonderful, interesting SMALL stores of all kinds out of business, so now you have your wish. Perhaps YOU "need" the chain stores, I never will. I will always be looking for smaller, independently-owned and run businesses, and going to Phoenix or further away for cultural events. For a state as beautiful as Arizona, CG is truly an eyesore.
Sam waltons dead?
