    Interesting to hear the callers on The Fan. Callers are saying Waters could be the fall guy as he tried to change the culture, but failed.

    Those callers need to read the report. It wasn’t a strong attempt on Waters’ part to change the culture. Glad he’s gone.

    Never a fan of the fireworks soundtracks, to include this one; it just comes across as cheesy. (I am definitely in the minority though considering you hear a lot of people singing off-key, and the music pumps people up.)

    I’ve gone there for several years and like it, especially the pool. I really appreciate the employees and no-pressure staff, contrary to what I’ve encountered at other fitness facilities (where they walk up to you and say you need a personal trainer to strengthen your glutes). There are no sales gimmicks, and fee/rate policies are pretty clear-cut.

    As for parking, most members live or work downtown or come before or after on-street parking payment is in effect. I believe this location still has access to a lot where you can get a reduced rate of like $1 for three hours or something.

    Good to know. It’s going to take a lot of money, and I hope they can obtain the funding to keep a complete renovation going.

    Yes, but what about the floors in between the top and bottom two? There are many.

    This is a great, historical building, but they really need to work on investing in the infrastructure for long-term preservation. Several floors experienced flooding, leaks, and no heat last week; the elevators are sloooooooooooooow. The bottom floors’ paint jobs will not hold up to the volume of people this building encounters.

    Super nice of you. Try these, and sorry if I don’t post the links correctly!

    1. Bethlehem on Broad – They are still in need of donations to fund these boxes which are families’ Christmas dinners.

    2. Faith Mission always needs help.

    If you are personally interested in donating food or serving on Christmas Day, I know of an organization that will be serving at the YWCA Family Shelter on the 25th. You can pm me for details.

    I love this idea. Is there someone with the city who could help coordinate, or would it be the private storefronts soliciting businesses? I have no idea who owns those storefronts but bet someone reading this knows.

    A Somali restaurant would be perfect down there.

    I can understand where ChrisSunami is coming from. And I feel bad.

    On the other hand, I can see where Roy is coming from as well.

    Oddly, plenty of white and black people attend the “Asian Festival.” Why is this?

    On yahoo.com almost six years ago to this day. Before that I had tried match.com (douche-central) and eharmony.com (even worse). Yahoo.com was cheaper than the other two, and it worked!

    Tomorrow is our four-year wedding anniversary :)

    With Dr. McMahan

    He swears it was only $150 per session, but I think it was more than that. I thought he paid close to $2K for six sessions.

    My husband had a long 10 by 3 inch tattoo on his arm removed three years ago. I want to say he opted out of the last two of eight removal sessions because 1. you could not even see it anymore 2. to save money 3. the process burned.

    Overall, he was pleased with the process.

    Not exactly awful, but just not a lot of entrees to choose from.
