Have we fallen out of love with the car permanently? - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-35242514
Experts have predicted that car usage has passed its peak – but has it been written off too soon, asks Richard Westcott.

Music and free streaming.

I miss the free streaming on T-Mobile. In order not to get into any debate on net neutrality I wonder if all project Fi users can get Google Play so we can download for offline playing.

If you consider T-Mobile a competitor, the advantages of being on Project Fi has part of the this community of early adopters, Nexus devices, excellent customer service. On T-Mobile additionally had unlimited data for $30 and free streaming of some popular music sites including a Bollywood site.

Just a thought.

This is the 4th car we purchased here. Our go to person here has always been Harmeet Suri. He doesnt sell to you but consults on what you need and what the needs are. This time we wanted a car for our daughter ( a new grad) and wanted to buy a Toyota Corolla. Harmeet asked us to try the Prius C and Scion IM. My daughter loved the Scion IM and got a lovely blue color. Other than the time we spent on test driving we relatively completed the purchase in 3 hours which was nice for us. Fitzmall always has a fixed price which is comparable to the invoice price plus what you pay for processing and there is no unpleasant haggling which we love very much. Overall we have enjoyed buying cars at Fitzmall and expect to continue to buy cars from Harmeet at Fitzmall for our next one.

This is a wonderful museum for taking the kids and the exhibits change all the time. We went to see the Maze which was fun even though we felt they could have made it more like a game and have fun things to do while you are lost. Saw the exhibit- The DC of the Future which was good. Kids enjoyed the Play and Build Exhibit. You can go to the museum and enter the hall for free but you will need a ticket for the exhibits. We got a good eal off of Groupon. Parking is plenty a few blocks from the museum. We used Parking Panda. As the exhibits change we will go back again.

This is a park maintained by the Montgomery County. Large green areas and a focus on learning and education about nature with classes for kids. We have been several times on family picnics, free park, lots of parking and places to play games. We love the ability to hire canoes and flat bottom boats and head out to the man made lake specially on a hot summer day. Y

This is very close to work and Greenbelt's best kept secret. This is a Thai restaurant that has consistently good food. I order the same dish Basil Delight Chicken with brown rice and alwyas enjoy it. If you are not a spicy fan I would recommend Pad Thai. Service is great. My water glass is never empty. Not expensive at all maybe less than $10 for lunch. it is a fairly large restaurant so by all means have your office party there. The only issues I have had in the 15 to 20 times I have been here is - an order got mixed up once and another time I did not get Brown rice and that was corrected quickly.
