  2. That was terrific, thanks so much. I saw some great information that I didn't know before. The senior programs sound excellent--I was wishing I was eligible! And that other terrific option for paying kids to shovel snow from senior's homes was swell.

    I love the positive stuff!

    But it really is so nice to have access to all those city representatives. You really feel like you can be heard by someone. And even things that can't be solved (like burying wires) it's great to hear that someone has at least considered it and is aware of how desirable that would be.

    Thanks for doing these.
