Evening before Thanksgiving - saved our holiday

It was the night before Thanksgiving, and our furnace stopped working - arg! About to leave for the holiday, Mark kindly came to our house and diagnosed the problem as either a faulty ignitor or control board. Since we have a strange model of furnace, he didn't have the parts on the truck...but he offered to return and install them on Monday (which was the soonest I was able to get anyone else to even make a service call). Being a tiny bit handy, I went out and bought an ignitor - and it worked! Our holiday was saved (and warm) thanks to Mark's last-minute diagnosis.

The New American Shakespeare Tavern

King John AMAZING on War, Politics, Religion

Set in the time of the Crusades, this play is a brutally honest look at war, politics, and religion. Regardless of your political affiliation, you will be moved by the depth of Constance's grieving motherhood, played brilliantly by Laura Cole in Act 3. You will see heads of state break their words...to bring peace!...and then be forced back into war by a self-interested church. You will see the church's representative, played disdainfully by Tony Brown, seem the very incarnation of the power of evil (look for his dramatically quiet exit in Act 3), but then be unable to stop the war he ignited. You will see a newlywed - with ties to both sides in this war - crying out for peace. You will see men of small intellect make heroically moral choices. You will weep with King John at his mother's death and marvel at the innocence and simple dreams of Arthur's youth. As in many of Shakespeare's plays, it is the outsider - the illegitimate bastard - who expresses the most scathing evaluations of the true nature of war, politics and religion. And, as in all plays at the Tavern, there are moments of superb humor to cushion these thought-inducing themes, as well as delicious food and beverages.

SOS Garage Door Services

Great work ethics & reasonable prices!

Mr. Sandoval installed the garage door opener and safety cables I bought, replaced 2 bearing pulleys, oiled the rollers and springs, and tightened hinge bolts. He was prompt in answering his phone, scheduled the day of service to my convenience, and had INCREDIBLY reasonable rates. I loved how he surveyed the garage door and talked to me about what he would do before performing any work. Plus, he explained my new system in great detail, gave me garage door maintenance tips, and made it run smoothly in under two hours!
