A Turkey Vulture riding the currents.
 
For those new to Missouri, the Truman Lake Visitor Center is a fine introduction; for those lifelong residents, it’s a good review.
Upon the recommendation of a neighbor, we drove to Warsaw, MO for the vintage shops that now draw people downtown and from nearby Truman Dam. As always, I checked in with TripAdvisor to learn what other travelers have enjoyed...

Smart, brave, and agile: Girl power in Divergent.
I am especially fond of those writers who know story archetypes and icons so well that they see them anew, transforming the familiar into something clever and fresh. The author of the Divergent series, Veronica Roth, is such ...

Another rant.
I have my moments. I bet you do, too. You know them. Those moments when you just sigh, turn off the TV, close the browser, and walk off, no longer able to dig and delve in the debris of politics. Recently, an online post f...

Dystopian Heroes
The story of Divergent is a classic tale wherein the same seeds of self-interest that bring man and his inventions to a ruined state now threaten the freedom and peace carved out of rubble. Human nature, especially the allure...

Below is my review from several months ago. Today a different crew, Brian Tibbals and Timothy Rodgers, completed the year's work agreed to with an annual contract. They were conscientious and thorough. I'm fortunate to have had two different crews, both of which were excellent. We paid for a contract so that Stanley Steemer (SS) would clean our carpets for a full year and on the first visit, our ceramic tile. We decided upon SS after using a competitor several times and comparing the work to SS's. At first, we thought we'd made a grave mistake. The grout was virtually untouched, the crew rushed, one crew member moved a piece of exercise equipment onto damp carpet--against instructions--and left a stain, and one of the two crew members had to be instructed to protect my furniture from the now damp carpet. Mr. Stanley, in Kansas City, after several unsuccessful attempts to correct the problems locally, resolved our issues and the job was redone, completed correctly. Our next two carpet cleanings were just average; we decided never to pay for a year's contract again as the savings are marginal and the service less than spectacular. One problem we had was the crews rushed through the job so for the next to last cleaning, I asked for a senior crew and was promised one. Little did I know that scheduling has been centralized in Kansas City and that promises made there do not trickle down to local crews. Worse, the crews spend as much time driving long distances from house to house as they do cleaning because long-distance schedulers, unfamiliar with the areas, send them hither and yon to fill a 12+ hour day. When the crew arrived after 6 p.m., I asked how much experience they had; it could not be considered "senior" unless turnover at SS is extremely high. I told them I'd been dissatisfied and that I expected them to do an excellent job in spite of the late hour on a Friday. If they could not, I was willing to send them on their way and reschedule. They put in the time and delivered! These guys, Mr. Selby and Mr. Morris, were conscientious and careful. Instead of 40-45 minutes and out the door, they worked my 5 rooms and a couch until they were clean. I will request them again for my last contract cleaning. SS should know that these two represent the company very well.
