I got a different answer that I think is right for Side to Side and Time Pieces, got Special Number right, and flubbed on the rest.

Having a Star Wars weekend- and Machete Order rocks! It makes a great way to enjoy the whole saga.

Of course, a couple things pop up when doing it as a marathon...
1. What is the deal with chopping off hands and arms? Luke, C-3PO, the guy in the cantina, Darth Grevious, Anakin, and at least one other person per episode. It is a pretty specific injury and usually followed up with an image of the limb on the ground- often holding a weapon.
2. Who the heck is in charge of the battles? The attack plan on Hoth, for example, makes absolutely no sense. The Empire is taking out a single power generator and sends in 3+ giant armored machines, which means there was some sort of heavy landing craft involved. Why not just attack it from the sky? One pass- done.
3. This is a problem that sci-fi and comics, etc. share- inconsistent powers. Sometimes a light saber cuts through armor, sometimes it just makes sparks. Sometimes Jedi can almost fly, sometimes they just stand there. It goes on and on.
5. It seems like every technological device they have is the worst possible version of it. AT-ATs are way too complicated and heavy with way too little weaponry. Most of the ships look cool but make little sense- with Boba Fett's ship being a prime example.

Been there twice so far- once just after some severe flooding, and then again in the early fall of 2013. It is a beautiful place with a variety of activities in the park and things to do in the area, such as the Boone and Scenic Valley Railroad and Museum in nearby Boone Iowa. Like many state parks, the individual sites are often small and close together and when the place is crowded you don't feel a lot of privacy in most sites. However, there are many picnic and day-use areas, and lots of trails and trail areas to spread out to. I especially love woody and rocky areas near rivers, which are rather limited in the Midwest, but this is a nice one. When you get tired of the camping elements, you can always pop into Boone for a meal or entertainment.

Basement floor drain was clogged, minor flooding in basement. Made an appointment no-line through American Home Shield. They called back within two hours (this was on a Sunday afternoon), and the plumber was here 20 minutes later. It did not take too long to clear the clog, and he 'load tested' the drain for some time to make sure it was running freely. At all times, everyone I spoke to or worked with was friendly and professional. The plumber himself was careful, and used a side door to help keep the main floor clean (although it is hardwood and I told him using the front was OK). Absolutely happy with all aspects of this service!
