Didn't we already know this.... but it's so much better when +WIRED writes about it.
The universal repair solution owes its existence to a Navy mom from Illinois.

My car and I both hit milestones today. It clicked 100k and I hit a major birthday (age withheld). We both appear to need Required Maintenance.

I celebrated with a little birthday hookie on the mountain.

Thank you all for the birthday greetings. And a special thanks goes out to my wife Dafne and family who continue to put up with me.

Winter is coming and powder is here!
Snow often begins to dust the mountains tops this time of year; getting 18" is a good sign for a terrific winter At about 10,500 feet on the Resolution Pass road, near Vail, I found 12-18 inches of accumulation.

A hidden gem of Vail for value and decent quality. Perhaps the best overall valuew of cost, comfort, and quality. We've stayed many times at the racquet club. Most, if not all, of the units that are managed by the club have been upgraded. The overall compound, while large, is fantastic for families. The outdoor pool is probably the best in the valley and has a great view. The gym and pool are It's not a full-service resort, but has decent amenities. Don't stay there to get pampered, but you'll be very comfortable in this low-key environment. Tips: 1 bedrooms with lofted ceilings often have a loft pace with several beds and feel more like 2 bedroom units. And any of the units that have the lofted ceilings feel more roomy than the condos with standard 9 foot ceilings.

I had an iphone screen replaced in their Evanston, IL location. They did a great job. I give them an excellent, because afterwards my volume control got a little funky. They insisted I come back in. They trouble shot the issue, which may or may not have been the result of the screen repair, and they resolved the issue. They even offered to replace the volume switch wiring for free is the problem came back. I highly recommend these guys.

Consistent, high quality food. Attention to detail and quality ingredients. Pine Yard has been a Chicago favorite for decades. Some consider the Hot and Sour soup to be the best between the coasts. Service is good and many dishes are served in a table side service (soups, mushu). They now deliver within Evanston.

These guys are great. I had an iphone screen replaced, which they did in under an hour. I give them an excellent rating, because of how they resolve an issue that came up. After the repair my volume control became funky, which may or may not have been a result of the screen swap. When I called they told me to bring in the phone, diagnosed the issue, and got everything working fine. They also asked me to come back if the problem returned and they would replace the volume control for free. Great job all around.

"Eat Food, Get Gas" is on their marquee, but it's anything but a greasy spoon. It recently moved from the original location, which had gas pumps, to this more upscale location which now has a bar and live music. Ollie, the proprietor, and his friendly staff have kept the breakfast and lunch true to the original diner fare, but in the evenings the ex-chef from the Vail Saphire restaurant, puts together a terrific mid-priced menu that combines classic dishes with elements of world cuisine. Breakfast and lunch is moderately priced; dinner is a bit more pricey. Route 6 Cafe is very popular among the locals, and since it isn't near the resorts, it is almost all locals.
