So I know both Jack and shite about Apple. I am a PC guy (not here to argue the virtues of either platform) but I have been tasked with purchasing a 13" MacBook Air for a Xmas present.
Where is the best source/price on Apple laptops?
| O-T Lounge|| Alamo Draft House beat to the punch? UPDATE in OP - jbgleason on 12/1/14 at 8:50 pm|
Looks like Spinosa's plan to open a drink and food movie theater may have been pre-empted. I can't see Alamo going forward with the investment if this place opens first less than 2 miles away.

This is the guy that "allegedly" shot the West St. John football coach at the club on Bennington. Now the family, obviously inspired by Ferguson, are protesting for a full investigation. Do they think the police aren't investigating? How do they think the police got the warrant to arrest him?

Had a guy come out and look at a job on my property. I wasn't asking for an immediate bid and was just showing him the scope of the work.
He immediately gave me a verbal quote and said the quote might go up "a few hundred dollars" after he wrote it up. I said great.
I received the written q...

Is there any factual basis to a grill being "seasoned". Louie's moving to a new location comes to mind. Is there a practical reason to rip out the existing equipment and move it or will a new one taste the same?
