Well, now I know...
You crave it in the morning, you wait in long lines for it, and I’m drinking it while I write this: coffee is everywhere. But that means misinformation about it is everywhere too.

Wow! These guys are quick, efficient, and extremely nice. This was my first visit to this office. I arrived a little before my 8am appointment and was quickly seated in the examination chair. I quickly had my x-rays completed (they use a digital x-ray for lower radiation and immediate results on the computer) and the dentist greeted me moments later for the initial exam. Dr. Bancroft is extremely pleasant, courteous, and easy to talk to. Next, I went for the regular cleaning which was a breeze. I couldn't be more pleased with the entire experience.

The Boy Scouts have recently rebuilt this bridge and have done a decent job; however, I'm not quite sure this new bridge can survive the next El Nino flood. If two people cross at the same time, the bridge gets pretty bouncy and wobbly.
