Feels like Summer!
Raves: Hewescraft... They put my daughter back to work!
Rants: City of Marysville.. Constantly stuck with higher taxes yet we have no sidewalks, roads are not properly fixed and the trains consistently clog up the main arterials.
Rants: Marysville Pilchuck HS Autistic Classroom Teacher... Teachers should be paid based on how well they perform and how their pupils perform. MPHS has a teacher that doesn't fit this profile. It's irritating because now we are pulling our boy out of the school. Other parents are doing the same. Another school in the State has a teacher being investigated now for how she handles the classroom. I think the same situation is occurring at MPHS, perhaps this should also get attention.
Raves: Facebook.. I wouldn't push facebook except to say that if not for such a venue, many of us would never have gotten back together as old friends and family. In the old days, once you lost a phone number or address you were screwed... Technology, hum imagine that....
Raves: Costco: Purchased a Gazebo which had to be assembled. Found a bad part, contacted my local Costco and they opened up a new box and gave me the replacement. A few days later we had another part problem. Costco had already shipped back the opened box. They opened another box to take care of us. I can't think of any other company that would go to such extremes to take care of a customer. This is why we buy big ticket items at Costco and why Costco is so successful. Kudo's guys!
Raves: Standing up to those that don't like religious beliefs.
Rants: Armourall Protectant. Crappy stuff left streaks all over my new truck interior.
Rants: Chevrolet. While the truck drives fine the voice recognition software for making calls and requesting directions is probably the worst on the market. Chevrolet needs to seriously rethink the software they are using because it's pathetic enough that my next truck will not be a chevrolet unless they can prove to me they have a solid interface. You request directions, it doesn't understand what you said. You ask to dial a person and it constantly asks if a name is correct - it's supposed to learn your voice but it keeps asking dumb questions. Dodge is looking better and better all the time, just no more 318's.
Raves: Gonzaga Basketball. Who said we don't have basketball in Washington. While my DAWGS can't figure it out, for 16 years Gonzaga has. NBA go suck eggs. 3/22/15
Raves: Gas stations not on the sides of the freeway. Check out the price of gas next to the freeways (.25 cents higher). Nice to have my local fredmeyers and 7/11. 3/20/15
