Newspapers want to start charging extra for newspapers on Black Friday.  No wonder they are failing? http://consumerist.com/2014/09/18/newspapers-want-to-charge-subscribers-extra-to-receive-black-friday-ads/
If your household still receives a daily or Sunday newspaper, take pity on your neighborhood's paper carrier. It's hard work to haul the ad-stuffed Thanksgiving editions of the paper to subscribers...

Very Proud that Miami University was involved in the You Can Play project and to see schools supporting ALL athletes based on ABILITY and not sexual orientation or gender identity.  If you can play, you can play

Time to get my mom a G+ account, if only to do remote support.

These guys are constantly spamming me with unsolicited email. If that's what they think is good and effective marketing, then it's pretty clear you should avoid them like the plague.

Calling this a "bed and breakfast" simply doesn't do this place justice, because while it has both a bed and provides a breakfast, those facts are only the beginning here and staying here was the highlight of our vacation. Park Lane is more like a meditative retreat near the lively SoCo area of Austin that just so happens to offer a quiet bed and bountiful breakfast. The Park Lane is located in a quiet and peaceful residential neighborhood. This small facility has a guest room in the main house in which the proprietor lives, and three other buildings - we toured all three. The carriage house was huge and was a full fledged apartment that you could easily house four people while the Vicky house was a bit smaller and had a bed on a loft. Given my fear of heights, I took a pass on that. We stayed instead in the Carriage House which was a delightful studio apartment that opened up to the pool area. Inside was a full coffee bar with a drip, espresso and french press depending on your morning coffee preference and a small assortment of teas for those so inclined. The filtered water pitcher was a nice little touch. This place was all about nice little touches: from the fountains around the facility to get you in a peaceful state too the ethically sourced toiletries. Even the toilet seat was heated. Who thinks of a heating toilet seat when setting up a guest house? Shakti does, that's who. Shakti was everything you look for as a proprietor: welcoming, informative and extremely helpful She takes pride in the fact that she rehabilitated the facility and made it simply gorgeous. The style is antique and rustic creating a soft and inviting atmosphere. Although the weather was warm here in January, the pool isn't heated and we couldn't enjoy a nice swim. Shakti told us some people like the brisk refreshing dip in the cold pool followed by the heated outdoor shower. While I love animals, I'm not a polar bear. Those afraid of animals need to think twice before staying here. The adorable dogs greet you each morning and walking around you'll hear a wide variety of birds tweeting throughout the day. I love animals so that was a big highlight and I really enjoyed the chicken coop located in the garden. A sustainable ecosystem is one of the nice touches here. Sitting out on the porch, listening to the pool and waterfalls, and eating a delicious vegetarian breakfast made me forget that I wasn't travelling to Austin to go too this retreat, but rather to see and experience all of South Congress, which is only walking distance away. If I would have known how tranquil Park Lane was, I probably wouldn't have planned anything else for my visit. Consider staying at Park Lane, enjoy the bounty the universe has to offer you, as well as a place to sleep and eat an amazing breakfast.

I've used Rueschhoff for years in both my home and business. The pricing is competitive and the quality is unmatched. These are people that literally have keys to my house so I have to trust them. They're quick and reliable and have great hours. I use them for our security system at home and whenever we have a problem, they are there for us. When I think Ruseschoff, I think peace of mind.

This is a vegetarian paradise! Before their redesign, Encore seemed like a bit of a hole in the wall. That's a good thing because you were always able to get a table. The redesign is spectacular with bamboo artwork, running water fixtures and full windows onto Mass Street so you can do some serious people watching. Now the place tends to be busy, so you can expect to wait a while for a table which is fine with me. The wait is totally worth it. My favorite dish there by far is the Vegetarian General Tso's Chicken. The same sweet and spicy sauce that makes this General so sought after is drenched over tasty bits of a tofu mix and then served with broccoli and hot chili peppers. Pure delight. They are extremely accommodating to vegetarian requests with vegetable fried rice, pad thai, etc. I also appreciate their willingness to provide brown rice inside of white for those of us health conscious. Ok, how healthy conscious can you really be if you order General Tso's chicken, but you get the point. No matter what flavor of Asian you like, they've got it here. Bobo teas, curries, thai noodles are all available. Service is acceptable for a college town: spotty at times but competent. A full bar makes an excellent complement to any meal. Highly recommended!

A Lawrence institution for sure! Unfortunately the quality of food has been tainted more than once by issues of financial misfeasance. Too bad because the pizza is really awesome. I leave a bit extra in the tip jar to help ease my conscious and truly hope their struggles all work out in the end for the employees, state, and the business. Unlike most pizza shops, Papa Keno's attraction is pizza by the slice. A huge NY style slice becomes a palette of toppings either specified by you or chosen from a vast menu up on the wall. I tend to go for spinach and jalapenos. The topping are slathered on and put into the oven to crisp up and become one with the tasty crust sauce and cheese. The breadsticks here are dense slices of the pizza crust crisped up and fancied with sauce and some extra garlic and oil. It's like eating the crusts left over from a pizza. I'd never trust someone who doesn't eat the crust from a pizza. They are missing the key point of the pizza and I would thus question their judgement on everything from world peace to the health care reform. People who don't like the crust are just wrong.

I'll admit I know absolutely nothing about Japanese food, I just know what I like, and I like this food! I'm primarily a vegetarian, so I don't know about the meat option, but the soup and rice options are yum yum! The prices were reasonable and the soups are quite filing. I usually get the Udon veggie soup with tofu. Udon noodles are like typical spaghetti, only 10 times as thick. The soup has some veggies in it along with strings of seawood and slices of fried tofu soaking in it. I was expecting cubes, but that's ok. Not a whole lot of it though, so those looking for protein need to supplement their meals The hidden treasure is the green tea. Seriously this stuff rocks. They make the tea bags by hand there and I can't quite get the recipe from them. It's kryponite green when it brews and it has hints of toasted rice in it. I'd go just for the tea alone. Unfortunately as another reviewer pointed out, only the tea here is green. Items are served primarily in styrofoam, but at least the bowls now they attempt to recycle. I hope they'll change their mind and choose more sustainable service items. Otherwise, the place is always spotless and the seating is coffee-shop style with stools and small tables that fit about four. Holds probably about 30 people total and it's along a strip mall. What I do know about Japanese food is the focus on umami: the salty satisfying taste we get from such things as soy sauce, MSG, and parmesan cheese. This is umami heaven so let your tongue bask in this fifth taste sensation.

Although this is "yet another chain," it's pretty darn good. Obviously the focus here is noodles, but they have a great selection of soups and salads. Consistency and reliability is always on the menu here. Vegetarians and vegans will love the options here as they are clearly marked and the calorie conscious among us will find a large number of dishes that fit within a sensible eating plan. Dishes come in two sizes and I frequently get the Med Salad large which is filing and only 310 calories. The price can't be beat. Service is wicked fast, but the place can get busy so a table is sometimes hard to find and after being in Lawrence a long while, it's a very popular spot. Be warned in the winter though. A few tables are right by the door and it gets extremely drafty. I've made that mistake more than once. Look for the rice krispie treats at the checkout because life is always better with rice krispie treats!

Lots of people claim to be "New York" pizza places but this is one of the few that delivers! If you limit yourself to pizza here though you are missing half the fun. A certain degree of mysticism surrounds what is a New York pizza. Is it the water? The cheese? The size? the oven? The sauce? Yes, it's all of that and none of that. You just know it when you taste it and you roll your eyes at imitators, just like when a midwesterner asks "Why is it called an egg cream when it has no egg and no cream?" and pronounce "Houston" like the city in Texas. When Morningstar first opened, I thought it was named after the stock report in what I thought was a clever tribute to Wall Street. Alas, even though I live in Lawrence, I'm not a basketball fan and apparently this place is owned by a famous KU basketball family. I was disappointed in what I thought would be quite the nod to New Yorkers! That is until I walked by and saw Drake's cake in the window. Like a moth to a flame I was instantly drawn to the place. I haven't had a Yodel since grade school. Dad used to always keep them in the freezer and if I was really good I could have one. For those midwesterners out there, Drake's is kinda like Dolly Madison or Hostess. Except it's better because it's from the East Coast. This was a smart move by the owners because unless you put a sign in Times Square, this was the best way to say "Hey, we love New Yorkers" When I walked in to decide what I'd eat before I ate my coffee cake and Yodel, I saw Wise potato chips. Awwww. That aqua green and yellow bag was part of my lunch box for so many years were about as valuable for trading during school lunches as cigarettes are at Riker's Island. To top off that New York state of mind, they had Yoo-Hoo drink. They didn't try to be a Jewish deli and have Doctor Browns or egg creams (again, use wiki to look it up and stop asking us New Yorkers about it. Get some Fox's Ubet and experiment). This place has all the trappings of a New York pizza parlour. Another authentic aspect of this place was a full Italian menu with calzones, lasagna, heroes (subs, grinders depending on where you are from). Everything tasted as I remembered and nothing gourmet. This is all about the basics and doing it right, though they do have gluten-free and dairy free cheeses. I'd try some of these modern options, but I'd be afraid my New York taxi cab driving father would rise from the grave and tear up my birth certificate. Although I haven't tried it yet, I hear the handmade cannoli is awesome. I promise I'll try it but when they have Darke's Yodels and Coffee Cakes, I simply can't make it that far down on the menu. No Italian ices though, which is a shame but makes sense since Marinos would melt coming all the way from Jamaica (and if you think the country not the borough you've got some more learning to do). Maybe they can serve ice cream with a wooden spoon here and yellow cups and at least try and emulate that feel. What's missing here is the NY attitude, and that's a good thing. The fact they accommodate a variety of dietary needs is a good sign. No "soup nazi" here. Everyone was friendly and helpful and generally interested in our enjoyment. No paper plates and wax paper. Real live silverware! Service was a bit slow, but that's ok because the murals and New York paraphernalia helps pass the time. It's important to note there is all Yankees memorabilia in this place. The reason is simple: the Mets suck. All true New Yorkers know this fact. Ok, I might be exaggerating since not everyone from the Big Apple has realized it yet. The Mets/Yankees rivalry makes Mizzou/KU rivalry look like a playground shouting match and I'm glad this place takes sides. For us, in Lawrence Kansas, Morningstar's NY pizza is the only true choice for those that can quote and remember the I "heart" New York commercials and had the goofy T-shirt. Native Lawrencians will really get a piece of the action here.
