http://www.ancient.eu/article/776/ The Battle of Mons Graupius between the Picts and the Romans is legendary - even though no one knows where it took place or even if it had any real value for the Roman victors.
The Battle of Mons Graupius was fought in 83 CE between the invading forces of Rome, under the general Agricola, and the Picts, the indigenous people of modern-day Scotland, under their leader Calgacus...

Jim's Auto Body Shop is the best. Someone backed into my car in a parking lot and crushed in my rear quarter panel/ruined the tail light. The guys at Jim's made the car look like it was brand new. I honestly couldn't figure out how they'd done it. It was like the damage never existed and the back looked better than ever. They also did the job in record time and they were, from start to finish, a real pleasure to deal with. I'll definitely choose Jim's for any auto body repair I need done in the future. Highly Recommended.

Magnificent dentist! I had only bad experiences with dentists until I went to Dr. Kristofik. It is as pain- free as one could possibly imagine. Wonderful staff. They are all completely professional and totally welcoming. I actually look forward to every visit. It's like a happy period of relaxation as compared with other dentists in my youth where I dreaded going. I'm especially glad I had him as a dentist for my daughter who now associates a trip to the dentist with pleasure. Highly recommended in every regard. A++
