look what my awesome friends and family did for a family in need this year for Christmas.  they stepped up to the plate and knocked it out of the park.

there are around 60 gifts, plus over $100 in gift cards.  both parents and all 4 kids of the receiving family are all getting some great gifts.

makes my heart feel good to see the people i care about do such good things for others; selfless things for others.  wonderful Christmas spirit.  no organizations.  no church.  no charities.  just people getting together and helping out.

we all got together and pitched in, and then had a party where we wrapped all of the gifts, which made for a great evening.

thanks to +Christina Close +Michael Martin +brandy martin +Steffanie Vincent +Brandi Boles +Rick Boles +Tanner Naeher +Gary Beckmann +Tiffany McClung Dylan McClung , and to my parents.

this is a very nice sushi place. the food is great. the atmosphere is very nice. and the wait-staff has always been on point. they have a very well priced happy hour, which is a heavy discount on most of their sushi rolls, as well as their drinks. obvious pros: their sushi rolls are large. they aren't chump sized rolls. staff is friendly and attentive. prices are right. cons: they can get crowded soon, as there isn't much seating. there doesn't seem to be much capacity to handle large groups. if you go during a busy dinnertime, the wait-time for your food could be a little above average. but i cannot fault the food by any means.

great. the food and drinks are wonderful. they pour cocktails strong, which is good for what they cost (a double crown and coke costs $13, fyi). we really like the appetizers. the calamari is massive, as are the mozzarella sticks. the lasagne is really good, but huge. you can definitely split it between two people. service is always top notch. they almost have too many people on staff, as there are always a few waiters/waitresses without sections.

these burgers are good, and the fries are pretty good (a little greasy), but there is no reason to charge $6+ for a smashed burger and $3 for fries. it is hard to walk out of this place for less than $10, which is idiotic when talking about a burger and fries. go down the street and go to either: rusty's frozen custard (same kind of burgers, but around 20% less money, with really good shoestring fries), or earl's (burger and fries is around $7, so not too much cheaper, but every bit as good). heck, chili's burgers are just as good and are the same price, and you get someone to come to your table and fill your drinks up too. in the end, five guys is overhyped; it's not worth the money. also, make sure no one you're eating with has a peanut allergy, because they only use peanut oil at five guys.

as of 10-18-2010, the prices are $38 for a single, $48 for a couple, and we were offered $60 for the signup fee (versus the advertised $120). they offer 6 month & 12 month packages, but the savings are minimal. tanning is not included, and racquetball costs an extra $5 a month. a 1 day pass for an in-town person is $15. child care is included. after being at another local gym for 10 years, i was looking for a change. i came to SAC on a Saturday, worked out, and liked it enough that I wanted to try it during peak hours on a weekday (to judge the crowd). My workout buddy, my wife, and myself were denied another workout because we had already worked out once. Even though I explained that Saturday morning isn't the best time to judge a gym's demographic, and that we liked it enough to check it out another time and were considering a membership, we were denied. Eventually, a manager contacted us and offered us another workout (he offered a week, but we only wanted a single day). Apparently, the staff was ticked that we were able to swindle them out of a second free workout, and they proceeded to express their displeasure to me and my family. I wanted 2 free workouts to make a sound decision. I have been at my current gym for 10 years. I am very loyal, and these guys should have thought about that. They should've thought about the fact that there was a good chance I would've been a 10 year member at their gym. But asking for 2 workouts is too much, and caused a major blowup with the staff. Extremely unprofessional. This place is drama. I've never been a part of anything like this. I was sick when thinking I became engrossed in a situation that was so petty. if you are looking here, demand a week trial period; you are the customer. if they want your money, demand good treatment. every gym within 10 miles from SAC gives a week trial period (many with free tanning included). SAC has higher rates than just about everyone else, aside from Flex gym (who is at $45 for a single and $65 for a double, although you can sign up 4 adults there for $115). i was offered $35 by all american fitness for a couple's membership (not including the $10 daycare charge), and my buddy was offered $25 for a single. all american express (norman) costs $22 and is insanely nice. fitness one is very nice as well, and costs $35 for the initial person, $20 for each additional adult. if you are looking for racquetball and/or a pool, then your choice is SAC or the YMCA on May (just as crowded). the cardio equipment is pretty decent (1/2 of it is only 1-2 years old), and they have some good weight machines (1/2 new, 1/2 old). during peak hours though, you will have to wait to use a machine. their freeweight section is abysmal, and needs some serious funding and TLC. it looks like a prison yard; the equipment is all 10-20 years old, and is very beat up. the gym is very, very crowded around 5:30. when we left the main room, every treadmill was taken, and about 3/4 of the ellipticals were full (the ones left had broken TVs). the weight section was at 75% capacity, which is very high. IMO, a new customer is very entitled to 2-3 free workouts to make a decision (most gyms think the same, considering they give week long trial passes).

we always have a fantastic time when we come here. last time, my wife and i split the peppercorn filet, the mashed potatoes, and the blue cheese wedge salad. it was all very, very good. the steak was absolutely amazing. we like the atmosphere here. the service is top notch. the cocktails are done well, and really aren't too horribly overpriced. i'm not a big fan of the fact that it is smoking in the bar, but that can be overlooked. the ventilation could be a little better, as you're still going to walk out of there smelling like a butt, but you know what you're getting into when you walk in.

the goal of Edco is purely to price gouge. do not use them. my two experiences with edco were equally bad. the first time, my AC went out. the guy came in, went in my attic, and changed a 35 cent fuse. it took him all of 10 minutes. he then wrote me an invoice for $300. he promised that their bi-annual checkup would include things like this, and it would be good to get on a plan (told me this would also mean free small parts and whatnot). i agreed. so jump to the last checkup in my plan. i told them i didn't want to renew, because i didn't see the worth. at the end of the checkup, the tech came to me and said that everything looked fine, but that my capacitor was going to go bad soon. he said they charge $350 to replace them. admittedly, i know nothing about this stuff, but i knew this sounded suspicious. i told him no, and after he left, i looked up capacitors for AC units. they are a $25-$35 part, and most heat and air places charge $75-$100 (including part) to replace them. there are several DIY videos on YouTube if you want to try it yourself. it's not hard. i eventually went out and looked at my capacitor (a year later). it looks great. he told me it was swelling and corroding, which was a complete lie. the capacitor looks like new, and there are no problems. i'll never use this place again.

Holly from patient billing, you suck. We got a bill saying our son wasn't covered by insurance, so we called and called this place, and never got an answer. We were always forwarded to a chick named 'Holly' in patient billing, and never heard from her after leaving numerous messages. Fortunately, our insurance company (BCBS) got things settled. So if you have a baby here, you need to go ahead and try to get them insurance preemptively, before they are even born. That all being said, the doctors and staff are great. Billing department sucks.
