Originally from central Florida, my husband and I moved to Memphis, TN in 2008. I'm currently attending ITT Technical Institute for an A.S. in IT-Computer…
Trying to do too much, with too little, and always too late.
I was wary at first of going to a clinic like this. I was worried it might be one of those run-down, half-a**ed clinics I have been to in the past. I have to say I was more than pleasantly surprised. Fastidiously clean premises, friendly, helpful staff and a great doctor that nailed my illness on the spot. If it wasn't for this clinic, I didn't know what I would do, since I can't afford to go anywhere else. The only reason I can't give it a 5-star rating is the scheduling process. You have to call at 8 am the day you want to get in so you can be given an appointment at some time later than day. A mild inconvenience really, but a bit annoying nonetheless.
(This review refers to the Hickory Hill office.)
It was campy, unrealistic, and didn't have a true Memphis "feel", but I found it entertaining enough to not change the channel. I'll give it a few more tries. I can't think of many shows that had really good pilots. They usually take a while to hit their stride. So, I'll reserve judgment for now.
Great news! Just don't change the bacon cheeseburger - it's perfection as is! And how about adding the french fries that are served at the 3139 Poplar store to all the other stores. I love those fries. And now that they take credit/debit, I'll go much more often. So much more convenient. Late night greasy spoons FTW!
I don't know what it's about, but between the title and this picture, I want to see it!
I would gladly ride the bus often if there was a bus stop anywhere near where I live. As it is, I would have to walk over a mile and a half on two roads that have no sidewalks just to get to the closest stop. That may not seem like much of a distance, but I have an injured knee and must often use a cane to walk. On top of that, the bus stop only has limited service so departures and arrivals are a P.I.T.A. So until/unless MATA alters service in this area, I'll continue to use my car. It really is a shame, because I want to support public transportation (for environmental and financial reasons), but it just isn't practical with MATA.
I'm glad to see a candidate actually going door-to-door instead of sending lackeys to do it for him. (Assuming of course these aren't just PR photo-ops.) I still won't vote for him, but I can give credit where it's due nonetheless.
Also, I have never seen his commercials, but I am neither a hermit nor a Luddite (darn near a technophile actually). I just don't watch TV. *shrug*
I have an icon that I used to use on certain blogs and forums that sums of my feelings pretty well across the board: "These candidates make me want to vomit in terror!"
That is all.
Awesome idea! I want one of those shirts now. I try to eat local whenever I can, although I admit to sometimes hitting a chain drive-through when in a hurry. Also, having only been in Memphis 1 1/2 years, I don't know of all the really good local places, so I happily bookmarked eatlocalmemphis.org. More new places to try, YAY!
