    We tried stopping by the other day at 11 and they weren’t open yet :(

    If you are talking about Sunday, we were closed all day. Keep trying please. It took Vasco de Gama 5 months to sail to the Cape of Good Hope. So keep hope alive!

    I think it was Saturday, but we’ll definitely stop back!

    I lived in Clintonville for a year and it was really nice. I wasn’t too far from High Street so there were plenty of shops, restaurants, bars etc. within walking distance. I lived in a 3br 1ba place (1/2 house) and the rent was $750 a month. If you’re looking for a place with a yard, that might be your best bet.
    I’ve also lived in German Village. I loved the old houses and the brick streets, it was very beautiful and there were also plenty of things within walking distance. The problem I had when finding a place in German Village was many landlords would say “German Village Area” which usually meant the house was in a shady area. It seemed like German Villages was a really nice place, surrounded by some really bad neighborhoods….and I mean no offense by saying that.
    I currently live in Victorian Village, which is an amazing neighborhood, although I’m not sure you’re going to get what you’re looking for in the price range you need. It’s within walking distance to some of the best shops and restaurants in Columbus. Harrison West is on the other side of Victorian Village and has the same feel, it might be a better alternative for the price range you’re looking to stay in.
    If you’re looking for a place in the suburbs, Olde Worthington and Olde Westerville are really nice places with lots of character, and are in good school districts.

    I think there’s a difference between telling children they’re all the same when they’re not, and helping children feel comfortable with who they are.
    Like it or not, society places a high value on appearances. Feeling like you don’t measure up, especially as a child, can cause self destructive behavior which is only going to fuel their feelings of inadequacy.
    I got an error when trying to pull up the study, so I couldn’t read it, but I’m not sure how you place a value on the effects of gaining self esteem. How do you determine how far someone would have spiraled downward if it weren’t for intervention?

    well Rolan- you need to be able to figure out where to get out of the car. If the Short North is really only 3 blocks it has not come that far.It was Mary Catherines and a couple other stores 25 years ago. We did do a lot of driving and we were shocked at how empty and closed a lot of the short north to the brewery district was. I should not have to google map shops on high street. I am still in the Short North’s target market- I lived in German Village right out of college- that was back when students and other youngsters still lived and partied down there. Man it was a dead zone. Google map one of Columbus’ attractions??????? lol

    Idk Kelly, I can’t say that I agree with your statements/ observations. I walk from Victorian Village to the Short North quite frequently…and as someone who was recently pregnant, I never once felt like I was putting myself or my unborn child in any kind of danger.
    I’ve always enjoyed visiting the many shops, it’s a great way to spend the afternoon. :)

    Does anybody know of an OB/GYN currently accepting new patients on CareSource – other than OSU?

    Kingsdale OBGYN takes it for current patients, but I’m not sure about new patients. They have offices on Lane and Sawmill. ph: 457-4827

    While personally abortion is not something I would choose for myself under any circumstance, I also don’t think it’s my place to judge other people and their decisions. I certainly can’t believe it’s an easy decision to make, and truly feel for any woman who has to do so.
    Does that make me Pro-Life and Pro-Choice? I don’t think so. In an ideal world, I think a woman’s choice should be whether or not to have sex and to use sufficient protection.

    I have to say that for all of my serving career, it seems that 18-20% has been the norm, so I’m not sure when or if there was tipping inflation. I’ve heard that in the south and in southern California, 15% is still considered okay.

    I was a server in several chain restaurants and my average tip was usually 25%. When I go to a restaurant I tip an average of 30% to 40% if the service is good. If everything is exceptional, as much as 50%. I still have a hard time tipping less than 20% because I know how difficult the job can be, and how many factors can be involved in ‘bad service’ that are unrelated to the server.
    Keep in mind, servers in decent restaurants have to tip bartenders, food runners, hosts and service assistants (or at least some combination of those people). Tipping out averages between 5% and 10% of their sales, so if they only get a 15% tip, their take-home is really only 5% to 10%. Ever been to a restaurant and had to wait 15 minutes on your drink? Most likely, your server didn’t tip the bartender well enough. I would commonly tip the bartender $20 to $40 on a busy night (regardless of sales), but my drinks were also always waiting for me.
    You get what you pay for.
