Collecting more plants this spring. I wish my thumb was greener. Some are not doing as well as I would like.

Try setting up a full spectrum light for them. Worked wonders for a parsley that was looking very puny.

The next was cast again last week for qualified applicants here at Optimae. We have no advertising budget so our options are very limited.  It continues to surprise me that Craigslist continues to yield the best results.

I love it.  I wish more Americans were able to realize the benefits of leaving work at work.
A new labour agreement in France means that employees must ignore their bosses' work emails once they are out of the office and relaxing at home – even on their smartphones

This is a popular breakfast place. It is very busy during breakfast. It also tends to be very noisy during meal times. I prefer to visit during off peak hours. The atmosphere is very nice and the WIFI is a plus. The coffee is good and they offer free pie on Wednesdays. The services is somewhat lacking. I often have to wait a while for requests to be taken care of. Overall a great place.

This is by far my favorite HyVee. The produce is fresh and they always do a good job of featuring local produce when available. They have a wonderful health food market. The employees are always helpful and they have added products to their shelves upon my request more than once. The vegetable wraps and sushi options are great for a vegan on the go. I love the coffee shop too. They always do their best to accommodate my non dairy requests.

I love this Java House. The atmosphere is nice. It is a good place to work, study or meet up with friends. The food is pretty good but, the coffee is what does it for me. I love the specialty coffee drinks. The service is really good most of the time. I have had a couple of bad service experiences but, those are rare.
