I like the Rabbi a great deal and we have made many close friends at CBJ. However the administration is currently poorly run. CBJ needs more members yet they are turning people off by the President and his wife's behavior. I hope to see that change soon or we as well as others will be seeking a Jewish community elsewhere.
I am not that impressed with the main branch of the Public Library. First the selection of new books is not as good as those at the smaller Manomet branch; second they are not open on weekends in the summer; third in order to reserve a room I can only do it in 3 month increments which makes no sense to me. I have never found the staff personable. In fact on one occasion I had words with one of them.
Soft as a Grape is a tourist attraction in Plymouth. Located on the waterfront you will be going in and most likely buying one of their beautiful t-shirts, sweatshirts - well you will find something to buy. The prices are a bit on the high side but the quality is very good. Most if not all of the items are made of cotton. The salespeople have always been very pleasant.
The Salvation Army in Plymouth is fanstastic. Captain Dan knows everyone in the community who comes for free lunches; uses the food pantry and attends Thanksgiving dinner when offered. I have volunteered there and know men who are homeless from my volunteering at our religious organization and they all have nothing but good things to say about this Salvation Army.
My only problem is that clothes can't be dropped off but that is a result of the town not liking to see items outside the building.
This Shell is a brand new gas station. A couple of problems. We were told that the attendant couldn't turn on the air pump for free in spite of the fact it says that it is supposed to be free for customers. He said it was broken which doesn't make sense since the station is brand new. Also the in and out entrances are inconvenient. In order to leave I have to go out toward Home Depot, I can only go right there and then I have to make a u - term. I do use the station because I have a charge card at Shell which gives me money back.
I often go into 7 Eleven to pick up milk or ice cream. What is really nice is that there is a gas station there as well so it is very convenient. The store does a good business and I have had to wait in line for a few minutes; it also can be a hangout for young people but neither of these have bothered me in the past. The prices are reasonable for a convenience store.
We use Churchills and find them very good. The service contract is good; we have never had to call them to come down; they leave a note in the door that they have been here. All in all absolutely no complaints.
I continue to go to Pearle over Lenscrafter. I find their prices better and the staff very helpful and nice. The recently had sunglasses in stock for me and held them until I got there.
They take as much money off as possible and will always accomodate my needing my glasses to be fixed.
Dr. Grant is wonderful. He is so patient. My most recent visit was to get new contact lenses. He outfitted me with 4 different pair over the course of a month until we found the right ones for my eyes.
This is just my opinion but Jordan is still a little town hospital. I would go here for something minor but for anything major there is no way unless it were an emergency. There are many departments Jordan doesn't even have (Rheumatology for example) and when I asked if I could have space for a small group which meets once a month for support around an autoimmune disease I was told they had none. As a Plymouth resident holding a non-profit disease oriented group I think that's wrong. They give space to Yoga classes instead.
