I attended this church growing up, and let me tell you, it is beautiful on the inside. The stained glass windows and amazing ceilings should not be missed. The congregation was mostly friendly as well, and we had great relationships with the pastors. Although I am no longer Catholic, if I was and still lived in New Jersey, I would definitely attend. You should definitely check it out if you're in the area, and their nativity scenes at Christmas are also beautiful.
I bought flowers for a roommate's birthday here, and I thought the staff was very friendly and helpful. Of course, I just picked out a bunch that I found pretty, but they were still very nice. The prices were pretty good (about the same as I paid previously at another shop, though that was in Chicago). I thought the place was nicely laid out and it was a cute place.
I got a coupon for The Parking Spot in the mail and so I parked my car there when I flew to Chicago to visit my family for Thanksgiving. They made it easier than I thought it would be, I was worried about missing my flight or the safety of my car, but it was really convienient and I'll be parking there again when I leave for Christmas. It looks a little pricey if you don't have a coupon, but then again I've never parked at the aiport before (always had a ride), so I don't have much to compare it to. The driver of the shuttle was also very friendly.
I was a student here from 1997-2001, and Neuqua may have changed by now, but it was a pretty lousy education when I attended there. The flashy attractive new features just hid the fact that the school was not a great place to learn. The district is too lame to pay teachers what they deserve, so what you get is mostly newer teachers that use Neuqua as a training ground before they move on to a better paying job. Of course, it was mostly the usual high school fare, because no one really ever likes going to high school. But behind the facade of perfection that Neuqua resonates, there is a real problem with a less than quality education. If the school spent more money on their valuable teachers and less on unnecessary extras, things would be a lot better.
I echo what most people are writing here, I definitely was a fan of the work done on my car at this mechanic. The big upside was that he was completely honest with me about what was wrong (I had my friend who knows cars well also check it out), and honesty in the auto repair field seems to be non-existant. Everything was done smoothly and on time, I definitely recommend that you take your car here.
I didn't mind this place so much, they were very friendly when I had to take our family dog to the vet, but it was also slightly dirty and really expensive. I think pet medicine is just expensive anyway, but they didn't blink twice when asking for $200 for pills for my dog. I was pretty surprised. The facilities are average, nothing special. I wouldn't say it was terrible by any means, but it wasn't great either. Everyone was knowledgable enough, it just seemed like they also didn't care that much. So basically, they're not bad, but don't expect anything extra.
I went to Beyond Harmony for what would be the first time I had a body waxing. I got my back waxed there and I was of course thinking that it would be painful or oddly uncomfortable. But the staff was very friendly and it actually barely hurt at all, they definitely knew what they were doing and took into account my sensitive skin without me even realizing it. The only thing I didn't like was that it was $50, so I can't afford to do it all the time since it only lasts 3 weeks, but the staff was really great and I would reccomend this place for anyone.
I took my dog Jelly to this groomer over the Thanksgiving holiday and I was thoroughly impressed with their professionalism and how well they treated the animals. Jelly is afraid of other dogs and normally barks or lunges out, but the professional staff here actually kept her calm the entire time. The pricing was fair and Jelly definitely looked much better afterwards, it's been quite a while since her last haircut.
I attended Northern illinois University from the fall of 2001 to the fall of 2004. I enjoyed my experiences there, I majored in communications with an emphasis on media studies, and the program was pretty awesome. The campus is usually under renovation, but it's really pretty in spots. The education is basically what you'd expect from a state school- good but not great. They're not too expensive, that's why I went there, and I did definitely get my money's worth. It's definitely worth attending, though just watch out for large class sizes and incompetent staff in the Bursar's office.
