I don't like debit cards either, it is a direct line to one's bank account. What I didn't like wasRead More my bank replacing my ATM card with a dual usage ATM/debit card without asking me...I made them cancel it and give me an ATM functionality card only. Some people don't have credit line established yet (like my college student son) and have no choice but to use a debit card instead of credit card. I take precautions and have it assigned to an isolated checking account, and urge son to monitor it closely (set up email alerts), good training for future financial independence.

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!

Mark, Your words are absolutely disgusting. Please do not use this comment thread as a vehicle toRead More spew your racist mentality. And for your information, food-borne illnesses come from agriculture, period. All around the world, including in the U.S. Lastly, your hatred for people of colour does not mean that you understand disease, at all. Good luck in life.

I thought I'd stop in and check it out, I was in a hurry so I opted for the drive through, bigRead More mistake! With six cars ahead of me, I pulled up at 2:10pm and I got to the window at 2:35!! Really? I could have gone into a sit down restaurant and ordered off of the menu and it wouldn't have taken that long! Someone needs to make sure this isn't a chronic problem or I don't have high hopes for this place! On the plus side, the food was good.

We had a fabulous dinner with friends, selecting from the Restaurant Week menu. Everyone raved aboutRead More their choices. This was our third visit and quality has been consistent every time. Beautiful view and wonderfully designed interior, down to the small touches like the silverware. A very welcome addition to Imperial Beach!

Hello Kay, Sorry if you feel public discourse is Bitching. How about the simple facts/zoning laws?Read More Is that ok with you? ALL condos in IB are required to have 1.5 off street parking places. It sounds like you have the required amount (garages are off street parking) I did not make the rules, our city did. Please get some rest and don't look at your emails. I will continue to point out illegal, unfair and weaselly city practices. Hopefully you can avoid my posts :-) Is the point of this to not talk about things that bother, I totally missed the memo ,hahahahahah
Paula Winchester January 24, 2014 at 07:14 am
I'm glad Libi was exposed, I love my hometown and all the new businesses etc. I am thinkingRead More though, if parking is $18 a day at the hotel, I'm afraid people staying there are going to start catching on and just park down the street at residential parking. This could start becoming an issue for the people who live there and need the area themselves. Perhaps we should revisit the resident permit parking, at least within two or three blocks of the hotel. Plus it should be only those residents affected that should have a say (I'm not one).
Libi Uremovic February 2, 2014 at 04:49 am
throw stones and bear false witness .....one would think you read the new testament backwards, butRead More the reality is you've never read it at all......so now it's time to parade yourselves into church, but instead of mocking jesus - go preach what you practice because that's who you are ....

T. Smith: Truthfully I didn't expect you to comment no less start an argument with me.
Vincent January 30, 2014 at 05:16 am
Francis Soyer: Point of information if you will. When one is going to install the new LED light bulbRead More which would be the preferred choice? The MiracleLED Un-Edison 60W Equivalent Frost or the Samsung A19 60-Watt Warm White. From the knowlege you demonstrated above I thought I would ask an expert.
Francis Soyer January 30, 2014 at 07:27 am
Vincent - Honestly I'm not too familiar with either product. Neither is an "industryRead More standard" name brand. Samsung is obviously know for their electronics, I don't know if they are actually manufacturing their LED's or using somebody else's, but Samsung generally has good products. MiracleLED, unknown??? However I did a quick search on both. Samsung: 10.8 watts, 810 lumens, 27,000k, 15,000 hrs, 130 degree beam angle. MiracleLED: 5 watts, 500 lumens, 27,000k, 30,000 hrs, they claim "360 degree lighting" but do not list an actual beam angle, but it would certainly be much greater then the 130 on the Samsung. I would look at application first. Can you see the bulb in the fixture you are putting it in? If so the Samsung's heat sink is very visible and if it were in a glass fixture that I could clearly see the bulb I wouldn't want to see the Samsung bulb, I would pick the MiracleLED even though just by first appearance the Samsung looks like it is made better. I think the only application I would use the Samsung would be in a can light as the light output is more directional especially if I needed more light as the Samsung puts out 60% more light. Both seem to be priced at about $16 each. The more recognized LED name brands are Cree & Nochia, also, GE, Phillips & Sylvania make them as well. I like the "Cree 60W equivalent soft white (2700K) A19 dimmable LED light bulb", sold at Home Depot & Lowes.
