Keeping the Windmill Alive - Your last trip? - November 2011

In danger of losing your windmill?

Maybe you can share with us the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you use it to seek out special places to go. (Like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.) Anything to keep your windmill alive.

This thread will be closed on the last day of the month and a new one will be opened.

Your credit may take a hit from unpaid traffic and parking tickets

WAPO, By Ashley Halsey III, Published: October 31

Could the District use an additional $355 million? Would another $680 million help out cash-strapped New York City? How about $58 million more for Milwaukee, or $30 million for Detroit?

In many of the past few weeks, I've been seeking to spread the attention around and find people who've been doing good things but haven't received a lot of official recognition.

This week I'm selecting a couple people who've been recognized several times before and who continue to do a lot of outstanding work.

Thanks ralphy1 !

Locations of Verizon Wireless Stores

Seems odd but with cell phones multiplying faster than rabbits and everyone either needs service or is looking for a Verizon Wireless Store there is now POI for them. Reason I'd like one is when I'm traveling and possible having a cell phone emergency (Service) I sure can't call them on it and without a POI on my Garmin I'm lost. Anyone have an answer to this one?
