Anyone else thinking Google is going to buy Twitter in the near future?

Twitter CEO Dick Costolo resigning. Leaving in that manner leads me to believe he must know something we don't.

Would be a great "data play" for Google. The social network would allow Google to finally have that social identity it's been missing.

Wonder what would become of G+ should Google acquire Twitter?

Not sure they will buy it, Twitter is not showing great results (if I should be considerate). Google is usually known for buying out real competition and /or growing business.

My son (now 5) has been going to Kicks Karate for almost a year now. Prior to, we looked at a few others in the area, but they were only a few steps above a daycare / after-school program. Kicks Karate runs a solid program that's focused on structure and discipline. The lessons and organized activities are engaging and very well thought out. I'm very pleased to say that the majority of the instructors I've seen have been there since we enrolled. Mr. Misha is an excellent teacher (and leader). Not only in level of commitment and care for students on the mats, but he's also very proactive in reaching out beyond the classroom. I'm appreciative of the phone calls asking how things are in general and how my son is doing. I would also like to comment on the cost aspect of Kick Karate which many are vocal about. The monthly cost and additional belt test fees might seem excessive, but as the old adage goes, "You get what you pay for." The program, staff, and environment are all top-notch in my opinion. I don't mind paying a little more for quality.

Over the weekend (and for the first time ever), we let our 11 month old Labradoodle off-leash at a party with 10+ kids ages 5 - 10 and a handful of adults at a place he'd never been before. He did amazing. Played well with children, came when we called, and never once wondered off. This is a result and testament to Morris and iCareK9. The training and guidance we've received (and continue to) over the past six months helped shape our puppy into a well-mannered young dog that we trust and have confidence in. Thank You, A Happy Dog Owner

I'd like to thank Joesph and the Orkin team for taking care of my home over the past 7 months. We originally contracted with them to combat ants last spring. A few weeks later we added their annual termite protection. They routinely check the termite stations and spray for bugs outside (in season). Went the entire summer and fall w/o a single ant being seen in the house. Each visit they leave a service report in the door letting me know they were there. Shortly before Christmas, I called after hearing what I believed was mice moving around at night near the living room ceiling. They sent an inspector (Wendell) to my home immediately. No indications (droppings or other) could be found, but he was unable to access a ceiling space in the garage due to it being 20+ high. Two days later Joseph came with a ladder tall enough to reach the space. He setup a few traps just to be on the safe side. As he was about to leave... I asked him, "what do I owe you?". He replied, "nothing. Is there anything else I can do for you?" Haven't heard a noise at night since. Wow. Needless to say, I'm a happy customer and they've won my vote and continued businesses. Very professional and willing to go the extra mile. It makes all the difference in my eyes.

We've used Gaithersburg Pet Sitting on three occasions over the past six months. Rosary run a great operation. Jerry and his wife take immaculate care of our two cats and bunny while we're out of town. They always leave a detailed note about our pets upon returning. Superb service and very affordable. Highly recommend.

My son had a nose bleed on some brand NEW white carpet we recently had installed. I tried to "dab" as best I could, but it wasn't enough. The following morning I called and the woman I spoke with said she would call me back in five minutes to let me know how soon someone could be out. Less than 8 hrs later the carpets were back to nice and white. Very professional. I would definitely use them again. They even thanked me for calling so quickly which made their job easier.
