We are facing a serious financial hardship right now. We are about to lose our home unless we can raise $23,000 by tomorrow. We have set up a GoFundMe account to accept any donations that our friends and associates are willing to give. The campaign is available here: gofund.me/25g3c7g
Hello. We are Jan and Keralee Peterson. Thirty-one years ago, when we started our family, we could never have imagined the sequence of events that led to our posting this campaign. We need $37,500 by Wednesday, May 25th 2016, to save our home for us and our family. Our problems started two ye...

Just a follow-up on this for those interested... we were able to save our home (not via GoFundMe). Fortunately, we were able to supply the mortgage company with enough documentation of our payments that they ultimately decided not to proceed with their action against us.

Thank you, all of our friends who helped and offered to help. We ended up using the money we raised to get on top of some outstanding bills and get ourselves better situated to handle any future financial issues. If you contributed and want your contribution back, please let us know.

Indeed, and welcome to the Pebble ranks. I am still rocking my kickstarter Pebble, but the battery isn't holding a charge as long as it used to (only three days instead of a week!) so I have been thinking about newer options. I have to agree with you on the unnecessary bells and whistles. I don't want to have to pay for a sim card for my watch so I can make Dick Tracy calls with it.

Thanks, Apple Spice Junction. I never would have figured out that this was a pickle without your friendly, helpful label.

This label is useless. Is it a Dill, or Sweet Pickle? I don't know what to believe anymore, I am so confused.

I am sitting at Pei Wei in the Minneapolis/St. Paul airport and I just heard an announcement over the PA. Even though the voice was recognizably speaking English, I was shocked to realize that I could only understand a couple of the words he used (specifically "behg", which means " bag" in Minnesotan). I fear I have lost my Minnesota ear! For a boy who used to live in Duluth (or, "Dulute"), this is just plain unacceptable.

Oh my, now I just overheard a patron behind me ordering kung pao chicken "without peanuts"! What is the world coming to?!

Sometimes, particularly after events like the terrorist attack in Chattanooga, I think our foreign policy should emulate Yosemite Sam a little more than Bugs Bunny.

It's possible that increasing US military action against ISIL will deter them from expanding; it might even push them back or eliminate them entirely.  It's also possible that increased US military would significantly increase ISIS recruiting, or lead to the next crop of assholes (like we saw with US action in Iraq creating more local AlQaeda, leading to ISIS).  These wars are about more than killing - they are fueled by ideas; US involvement pisses off a lot of people, probably more than we can kill onesy-twosy.  I think this is why the US / Iran deal is important - Iran can intervene on the ISIS battlefield without the fallout we would create.  At least, I think that's what the administration is hoping for.

Tasty Food, but Not Cheap for Lunch We went here for a work lunch... I have been before, but don't generally because it is a bit more expensive than I like to pay for lunch. The sandwich, salad, and soup choices are pretty diverse, and you can request modifications within reason. The staff is friendly and courteous. If you have a large group and call ahead, they will move tables around for you before you get there, which is nice. The typical table seats four. You order, pay for, and pick up your food in a line, then seat yourself. A wide variety of drinks are available at a central drink station. The food is very flavorful, but the sandwiches can be kind of dry (they are panini style, so toasted after assembly). The soups are delicious, but the small portion feels a little too small (I haven't tried the full sized soup). While I have not had a salad here, I have observed my co-worker's choices and the salads look very good. I think on my next visit I will try a soup and salad and skip the sandwich. The place is generally busy, and has a fun atmosphere. It isn't too noisy to have a conversation, but it is not intimate. The staff will collect your tray if you are sitting and talking after your meal, but we did not feel rushed to vacate our table.

Great for Lunch JCW's is a great spot for lunch. It gets rather busy around noon, so plan to arrive early if you need a big table. Outdoor seating is available when the weather is nice. The staff is friendly and helpful, and they don't mind slight tweaks to the menu items. Queue up when you go in, order and pay, then get your drink and take a seat. They will bring your food to you, which is nice. You are expected to bus your own tray when you are done. Not too hungry or on a tight budget? Order a kids meal for an inexpensive lunch (around five bucks) that is still pretty filling. Other great menu items are cheese fries (a meal in itself) or a gyro. Want both pastrami *and* bacon on your burger? Not a problem. If you are in the military, show your ID for a 30% discount. Otherwise, ask for a loyalty card and every time you have spent $100, you will get $10 off your next purchase. Plan on spending around $10 for a very tasty and filling lunch.

I have been using this pharmacy for over fifteen years. I am on a first name basis with all of the pharmacists and technicians. They go out of their way to be helpful. One time, when they didn't have sufficient stock of a particular medication I needed, they called other competing pharmacies in the area for me and found it available at a Walgreens down the street. I highly recommend this pharmacy.

The biggest advantage of this store is its location. Often, in the evening, there are too few check stands open (but if you only have a few items, you can pay back at the electronics department or in cosmetics). The store now closes at midnight (it used to be open 24 hours), but the stockers still fill the aisles up with pallets a couple hours before they close.

I usually rent from a different Enterprise location, but my last rental was rather spur-of-the-moment and my regular location didn't have the vehicle class that I wanted. I checked with this location as they are also relatively close to my home, and they had several vehicles available so I made a reservation and went over there. The staff was incredible. Even though some of the staff were relatively new to the job, they all exhibited high levels of professionalism. I dealt with three staff members over the course of my rental, and every one of them went above and beyond to ensure that I had the best service possible. I was offered the choice of three vehicles that they had on the lot at the moment, and even given the chance to sit in each (and have my wife sit in each) to determine which was the most comfortable. My original rental was for three days, but by the third day it became apparent that we would need to use the car a little longer. I placed a quick call to the location and they told me that there was no problem at all extending my rental to a week. By the end of the week, I had been enjoying the car so much that we decided to extend another week... again, a quick call to the office and my rental was extended without any problems. On returning the vehicle, again, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They reviewed my usage, asked about any problems with the car (there were none), and advised me about how my deposit would be returned to my debit card. All-in-all, it was a very pleasant experience. While I will probably go back to my normal location for future rentals, I will always keep this location in mind for times when I can't get the vehicle I want at my regular shop. I will also continue to recommend it to my friends who live in the area for when they have a rental car need. Keep up the good work, guys!

Wow, I never knew this place existed until it was recommended to me by a home care nurse. We needed to get a walker for my wife after her knee surgery, and Alpine quickly took care of our needs, finding the exact unit we needed. Their price was fair, and they were able to take our FSA card, too. I highly recommend Alpine for any durable equipment/aids that you need.
