I love being a AAA member. If you're not a member, consider that they have their own DMV service. The counter staff is so knowledgeable and they have all the forms so you won't have to endure a long wait and terrible service at the state run DMV. The AAA staff do everything for you. I like that! When we transitioned from military to civilians, I didn't know I had a deadline to convert my WA registered vehicle to CA. Not only did they help me figure out my fine but they helped me bring it down as low as possible. While I was there, I also received a free travel bag just for speaking with their insurance guy.
Everything's so fresh! Even though we're military and enjoy lower prices at the commissary, I'd rather shop at Henry's for their fresh produce and meats. Their prices are good but even better when they run their specials. I'm into the green movement and always bring my own shopping bag and guess what? Henry's gives you 5 cents back for every shopping bag that you bring! How cool is that? It really pays to be green!
I hate reeking of cigarette smoke and inhaling all that poison when I'm at the casino. At Sycuan, they've cordoned off a room just for us non-smokers. Thank you Sycuan!
There's nothing worse than reeking of cigarette smoke and feeling sick from over-exposure. Even though I would prefer a completely blocked off non-smoking slot room, this is better than sitting in a smoke-filled room, exposing your lungs to cigarette smoke. Aside from the casino, they have a very nice outlet shopping mall with a nice fountain display on certain weeknights and every weekend. Don't forget to visit the Perry Ellis store for your coupons.
Everything here is targetted at kids. From the numerous video game stations, to the big screen tv, to toys, Dr Hoss has thought of everything to ease childrens' fear of dental visits. Everything is so colourful and everyone's so friendly. He has a beverage station for us parents too. Dr Hoss even has a passport for kids to earn points from getting good grades, taking care of their braces to being on time, for prizes like an i-pod and more. His wife runs the pediatric dental clinic in the same building and together they call themselves the Super Dentists - complete with Super Dentist outfits!
If you're a fan of solid wood furniture, this is the place. They have everything and then some! They specialise in unfinished furniture so all you do is stain or paint them whatever colour you want. If you don't want do the work, they'll do it for you for a small fee. They have 50 custom finishes on every solid wood item. We've bought 3 pieces from them over the years and love the quality and the great service. If you don't see anything at their store, they have pictures for you to browse to place a special order.
Even though she came highly recommended by a friend, I felt that she wasn't what I was looking for. When I brought my Maltese for our first visit, she grabbed him by the collar and plonked him on the grooming table! I was horrified! If she treated him that way while I was there, what was she going to do once I left him in her care? On my way out, I also noticed 3 bullet holes in her store window. Yikes!
I've used quite few groomers but Carol's the best. She's gentle with my dogs, even though they're fiesty and grumpy most of the time. And her prices are fantastic! $30 for the works and that includes popping the anal glands. Her daughter works with her and together they're a great team. Carol even offers a pick-up and delivery service if you can't drop your dogs off at her shop.
I have never met anyone who smiles as much as Stan and does such a great job cleaning my carpets. Stan's also a pastor so you know Stan's honest. He comes out in his white van and cleans your carpets right in your home. He's very thorough but fast so you're not inconvenienced too much. His prices are great too, what more can you ask for?
Dr Hoss is wonderful. Whenever we visit, he patiently explains what's happening on that visit and what's to come. His does all the major work himself unlike many of the assembly line orthodontists these days. He used to sit on the ethics board so you know that you're not only getting a good orthodontist, you're getting a great one. His office manager, Katie is just as wondeful. Our insurance took a long time to pay them for services rendered but she didn't pester me for co-payment. How nice is that?
