LOL ... take this in stride ... but "anybody" can cut down a tree ... Even do a few myself from time to time. But this is baby size sugar pine ... I find more amusement that guys make 7 minute videos to demonstrate routine work.

Discovery Inn
2832 Broadway Street, Eureka, CA 95501
My stay at the Discovery Inn was August 2012. The room I got was far better than the Motel 6, for the same basic price range. The furnishings were better than expected. The fridge and coffee make worked, the room was clean, and I especially liked the large shower stall with no step up. Someone was brilliant in placing the water knobs closer to the entry to avoid cold water when first turning on. It's not a luxury motel by any means, but it's as good or better than the average affordable motels I stay at. The Discovery Inn easily made the cut for my website's redwood page recommendations for motels along the redwood coast. The only reason I did not rate quality higher, is this is not a high end facility. In a nutshell, I was very pleased and will stay again.

Over the years I have bought plenty of gear from Pro Photo, especially lenses. What impressed me the first couple times in the store was how the sales staff did their best to help me. They even steered me away from some purchases because the certain products would not benefit my photography needs. I find a wealth of knowledge and assistance every time I go in there. Its one of my favorite places to shop because of the people working there.

Lost or Stolen Package, failed investigation, over 30 days and still no compensation. I want to put this review more toward "UPS" than the UPS Store itself. And I gave 3 stars, because average splits the difference. February 2016, I sent a fine art canvas to near San Diego. Tracking said it was delivered, buy the addressee said no package was there. I notified UPS by March 3rd. By March 15th, UPS said they tried to contact the addressee unsuccessfully, and closed the investigation. But the addressee contacted me and said the TRUTH was that UPS had called her. Then I called UPS and they confirmed a botched closure, apparently reopening the investigation. After asking me to provide reciepts for value, the addressee sent me another message saying the UPS driver came to her home stating something like the package may have been delivered next door. That statement by the driver seemed to negate "proof" of delivery. April 7th, the lady at the UPS Store said compensation was approved, and a check will be sent out. In this case, the greater blame would need to rest with the primary UPS company, because the time was doubled due to incorrectly closing the first investigation. I will still do business with the Beaverton UPS Store at SW Hall x SW Scholls Fy. Rd. And I feel UPS in general is better than Fed Ex from my experience.

We hired Lewis Landscape Services to install irrigation in the Beaverton area. Not only was the work done well, but they maintain a clean work area. The guarantee policy is one of the better ones in the area. Ask them and they can explain. We will definitely call them again.

Yesterday, the bartender invited me to stop by for a 1st time meal, saying Gustav's was open July 4th, and virtually everything on the menu was 40% off. Went online today and noticed their listing said open until 11pm. Drove over and found a sign to the contrary. Not open until 11pm ... no meal.

Note also that this marker is indicative of an approach to the GOT. Keep your eyes open. This grove similar to other new ones is not marked with boundaries in the park. Most folks don't realize the expanse nor know all of the redwoods contained. Many trees within the grove are not named. But you may know a few with names. So keep in mind that this is not the center, just one of a few entry points. There really is no center to the grove.

We purchased memberships for our whole family, and workout almost daily. The facility is impeccable, almost dust-free. The paid staff and management have all been friendly and answered all of our questions. Upon first contact, they knew we were considering another local club with the intent to make a choice soon, but did not try any sales tactics on us. They simply answered our questions and presented exactly what they had available, and membership options. Each of our 3 year memberships came with 4 sessions with one of their fitness trainers. All of us have been thoroughly satisfied with the coaching and information from those sessions. There are some "rush hours" just as one would expect if traveling on a highway at peak hours, but we have found many windows of time that provide ample use to use the machines. Our teenage son enjoys it so much, he's asking hours in advance, "when are we going?" I met one of my customers there. He said he's been going there for 7 years. And likewise, is thoroughly satisfied with the fitness trainers, scheduling with them as fits his needs. Also found out that our real estate agent exercises there, and he's a smart whipper-snapper for an older person. If he likes the place, it's got to be a fine choice. M. D. Vaden of Beaverton, Oregon
