It's an article about the product, John. I didn't see a link to an example, but then again, we probably wouldn't.

Story
Tagline
Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Student, Higher Education Administrator, TEDxBuffalo
Introduction
I am currently working on my Ph.D. My focus has shifted from studying just DIY learning to looking at the many disruptions that are affecting higher education today. I still love to discuss DIY and informal learning (such as MOOCs) and alternative forms of credit (such as Open Badges). When I’m not thinking about the future of higher education, you can find me buried in school work or helping to put on TEDxBuffalo.

We had a good experience purchasing a Forrester from this dealership. Was it spectacular? No, but that isn't the fault of my salesman, Mike, who was great. I am a designer and I think all dealers are the same, even this one. It reminds me of the other Northtown I bought my car at, the Basil I bought another car at, and the Jim Murphy I bought another car at. If a dealer wants 5 stars in my book, they really have to do something different. Think architecturally, removing awful cubicles, and green. In this day and age, when every time I swipe my credit card in an iSquare it emails me a receipt, do I have to sign 20 sheets of paper in order to buy a car? Or, why is the interior design in these places more sterile than an airport? To be spectacular, you have to update.

Maurice came highly recommended from a friend. I brought in 3 skirts and 3 pairs of pants. The pants were nice Calvin Klein pants that were part of suits. They needed to be hemmed and I asked that they be taken in at the bottom. The skirts, on the other hand, needed to be completely reconstructed. Wow- I am still amazed at the job Maurice did. The one skirt that I bought in Scotland on a whim was high wasted and really unflattering. I haven't worn it in 4 years and would have never worn it again, unless this work was done to it. Now, I cannot wait to wear it! The other skirts were given to me by a friend who used to wear them in her youth. They were also a high-wasted style and he did an amazing job fitting them to me. The pants look AMAZING. I really love a skinny, more tailored pant leg, and he was able to work miracles with these pants. I will be back!!

I have never had the problems with service some people are reporting in. This is a downtown Buffalo diner. The decor isn't fancy, the people aren't nice until you get to know them and they get to know you, and the food is outstanding. I happen to love the little waitress who waits on us, then again, I am there quite a few times a year. :)

I have had several messages here, and after finding Brittany, this is the only place that I will go for a message now, unless I am traveling. Joie is also fabulous. I highly recommend a deep tissue. I originally thought it was just for athletes, but it is also for people who spend most of their time slumped over a computer.

I absolutely loved my stay at Kingsgate. I can't get over how friendly the staff was- like everyone (the front desk was so helpful, my shuttle driver told us about some awesome spots in the city, such fun bartenders!, and I had fun conversations with my housekeeper daily). I stayed for 9 days for my residency and the food and service was amazing at every event. Everything was always so clean, they have great food options, and a lovely outdoor area outback. Great workout facility too! (with passes to the UofCincy gyms as well) I highly recommend your stay here!
