Just got back from donating clothing to the relief effort headed down to Staten Island. From what I can see, there was a pretty hefty response.
That's great.

I also heard they needs lots of trash bags.

Unfortunately.

Great breakfast buffet!
We've stayed there a few times.
If you combine the weekend special with a AAA discount, it's a good deal. With breakfast included.
Self-parking in the back used to be free - now they even charge for that.
It would be a little weird paying to stay there considering I live less than a mile from there but I will check out their breakfast. I have been in that building maybe twice in my life, and pass by it probably at least twice a day.

I'm kind of troubled by the whole coordinated response issue. It is Red Cross that traditionally does this, but the residents were complaining about neglect, so they put out a plea so some of our local synagogues and churches responded.

How about this for a fact. Your fantasy interpretation does not stand up in a court of law. And ultimately, that is what matters, not your hot air.
No, applicability of the law matters, without it the court has no jurisdiction.

Funny you should bring that up. These are trees that are in most likelihood in the town right of way, once/if I can convince them of that.
Best price would be FREE (your taxes)
Luckily i don't pay car tax or property tax, although you can argue if I rent then a portion of that goes to pay taxes.

Just wait until we get the first accident due to incompetence with a tree chipper
make sure your guy is insured - on my parents block someone got killed a few years ago, and another house down the block had a tree fall on it during removal.
Well if you hire someone that is licensed by government you will pay more, enjoy it.

Clean up your yard it looks like shit, get out and vote for violence.
There is an old black man with a Pollard sign out front without a clue.

Once again you enter an area you obviously know nothing about.

There is no correlation between price and Licensing. A CT arborist license is about $120, renewable every three years or so. The gatekeeping into the profession is the certification exam (and Continuing Ed units), not the licensing fees.

The real difference in fees is between the insured and the uninsured businesses, and that IS buyer beware, b/c as a homeowner you are personally liable if your uninsured worker screws up.

The majority of licensed professions in CT have a very minor fee. Even the annual LLC renewal fee is less than $200.

Too late. I mowed the lawn (hopefully for the last time this season) yesterday and did the leaves the day before.

I voted YES on every item asking for expansion of government, except one, which I chose not to vote because I havent been folowing the issue (Fire)

I think you have to ask yourself which network is promoting the response as a fiasco. Its not going to be CNN or MSNBC.

I don't stay at too many local hotels down here either.

But we have splurged a couple of times. Thanksgiving weekend for example, maybe take in a play and nice dinner out.

I heard the Sunday brunch at the Hyatt is nice too but pricey.

And I thought it was nice too, the stories and pics of the many runners (many international) already in town for the marathon bringing cases of water and other supplies over on the Staten Island Ferry.

But if you mow first, you end up mulching a lot of the leaves - no?

Between that and the hurricane, we had very few leaves to worry about this year.

This year most of the leaves came down at once in the hurricane -made it easier.

I gave up my gas mower a few years back and bought an old style push mower. I am no longer addicted to gas. It doesnt mulch the leaves like the power mowers do, unfortunately. So I rake them up whole and either ship them out to the street like everyone else does, or use them whole as mulch for my shrubs.
