Cleaning out our storage unit
#1
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


I wanted to start and clean out my storage unit in the basement of my apartment building. What are some of the ways to dispose of the trash?

I don't have anything crazy, just old boxes and maybe some old electronics/cables

Is there a city dump where I can drop off the trash? Any suggestions?

Thank you!

In Soviet Russia, leases renew you.

I wouldn't know. I just stand there at 11pm bouncing a ball looking suspicious.

The problem with oil and it's derivative products is that you have no real way of knowing what you are buying when you go to the gas station, regardless of the name on the pump. Oil is produced around the world and loaded into tankers (or pipelines) and commingled. Going to a Valero station doesn't mean that the gas you are buying came from a Valero refinery and it certainly doesn't mean the source oil came from a Valero well because they don't have any. You have no way of knowing whether the gasoline you buy at Valero came from a BP well - or a PdVSA, Libyan or Saudi well for that matter.

BP has trucks that deliver gas to the station, but they aren't coming from a BP refinery because BP doesn't have any in the region and there is no requirement that a station owner buy gasoline that originates from BP-sourced oil. Gasoline boycotts are ineffective (unless the target is a specific station and not the brand) - the only way to really affect the oil business is to use less (or none) of the product altogether.

Why do you try to make yourself feel better by talking about protesting one gas station that had nothing to do with the spill? Meanwhile you'll continue to drive a car or buy products that are driven to the store.

You and people like you don't understand the complex issues at work here and what would happen if BP and the other oil companies suddenly stop producing oil for us. And hoping something like that happens actually means that you hate America and Americans.

You want to really do something that would hurt BP/Oil Industry? Stop wasting time standing in front of a gas station, and get a job working towards alternative sources of energy. And just fyi - a lot of those jobs would mean you will be working for one of those companies you "hate."

Well, then you keep working on that.

Anyone who buys from BP is simply a sap. A real boycott would hurt BP's bottom line, but that will never happen because ultimately Americans really don't give a sh!t about the things that they claim to. Their attention span is way too short. If there were a massive boycott of BP stations, they would be unable to open new franchises and their sales of oil and oil related products, as well as convenience store sales, would plummet. Stock prices would fall and debt costs would rise. As far as the poor BP franchisees? Collateral damage. Sorry folks, you hitched your wagon to the wrong pony.


How about you work on your logic. You hurt no one but the poor franchise owner who wasn't involved with the oil spill. And even if everyone was to boycott BP, where would you get your gas? Shell? Exxon? They've all done very bad things to people and the environment.

The real cause of the oil spill is much more complex. But it starts with us and our dependence on oil to maintain our way of life. And until there is an alternative fuel, there isn't much we can do about BP.

So stop with your silly talk of a meaningless boycott.

I just walked through the park (it looks fantastic by the way) and I passed Mamarama. It was really cool being able to see her in person. She was on the phone so I didn't want to bother her but my fiancee and I love her TV show.

Been there twice now and I prefer Parkside Bistro to the new Hamilton Inn. I've had the Chicken Cesar wrap this last time, and it was awesome.

I've been twice now and I have to agree with GlitterQueen. I had the fish and chips one night, and for $14ish I shouldn't leave dinner hungry. The fish was not great and the fries kinda meh.

The second time I ordered the artichoke pizza and my fiancee had the lobster roll. Both the entrees were good, but the portions were small. We also started with the calamari but it came out cold.

The bartender the first time I went (about a week ago) was very nice, but Sat night a different guy was cold and made us feel rushed.

If we're going out in the neighborhood again we're headed over to the Bistro by Basic.

I got take-out from Parkside Bistro (next to Basic in Hamilton Park) last night, and both my fianc?e and I were very impressed with the food. I got a lemon chicken linguine dish that could have easily feed two people. My fianc?e got the chicken kabob that came with a fresh tomato salad and rice. We also got the homemade hummus appetizer with warm pita bread, that also could have served as an entr?e.

The owner says that they're working on their liquor licence so it's BYOB in the meantime.

I hope the neighborhood comes out to support all these new restaurants, but I especially hope that people check out Parkside Bistro. With it's huge menu, variety of food and price points, I can't imagine people not finding something that they'll love.

The food at the HP Ale house was passable for a quasi-sports bar, and not that much worse than White Star. And the environment was much better since you could actually watch a game and not feel like you were sharing a table with the rest of the bar.

I wonder what excuses people have for not going to The Embankment. I feel sorry for those guys, since the people of HP clearly don't know a good thing when they see it and would rather complain on a message board about off the leash golden retrievers and too many TVs at a sports bar.

Most of us use computer displays all day long without noticeable probs.

I didnt say the iPad will replace the Kindle. I said the Kindle would lose business to the Kindle. In fact it's already happened because people have postponed buying Kindle while they waited for this announcement.

People who do not already own a Kindle and are thinking of getting an iPad will not buy a Kindle as well.


I agree. Some people will certainly go over to the iPad, but I think a lot of people were thinking that the iPad would be a Kindle and laptop "killer." But from what I've seen and read on Gizmodo/Engadget those people who are expecting the new iPad to be the end all be all portable device will be disappointed.

You will have a better pure reading experience on the Kindle and a better email/internet/office productivity experience on a netbook or laptop. The only thing that I would expect to be better on the iPad is the magazine and newspaper experience since it will be in color and reading for short periods of time will be fine.

The Kindle does not use a screen like a computer or the new iPad. Its screen uses the "e-ink" technology which is the same thing as reading a normal book. There is no more eye strain as there would be with normal reading habits, and actually I've found it easier to read since I can increase the font size of my books at night when my eyes are tired from working on my PC at work all day.

And the iPad will not replace the Kindle at all. The iPad, iPhone, or any type of laptop uses normal backlit computer displays which will tire your eyes when reading for any length of time. Also those devices are hard to read in direct sunlight (i.e. at the park or beach). The Kindle or the Barnes and Noble Nook does not have that problem, plus it weighs a lot less than the over 1.5 pound iPad.

Also you can read your Kindle for weeks without charging the battery, which isn't the case with the iPhone or iPad. I can pick up my "book" (i.e. Kindle) without having to worry if I plugged it in last night.

The Kindle won't replace my laptop because the Kindle isn't meant to do anything other than read my books, Wall Street Journal/Times, magazines, etc. If I want to do anything other than that I would use my fully functional laptop/netbook, and not some gimped device like the iPad.

Yeah the food wasn't great, but there is no better place to go watch a game. I hope whatever comes next will keep the TVs.

If you want a quiet dinner, go to Simple (which could have even worse food) or The Embankment (which I really like).

It happened to me as well. Their "actual" can sometimes be a guess if the guy couldn't read the meter. When he comes around next, he'll read it and you'll get a credit for the difference.

Re: Landlords warned on legal temperatures (70 degrees days - 65 degrees overnight)

Does this apply to common areas also?

In our apartment building we live on the first floor and have floor heaters that we can control. We need to keep them at their highest settings to keep our place at a reasonable temp because the basement (which is directly under us) is freezing. Does our landlord have to keep the basement at a certain temp? All that cold air makes it almost impossible and expensive for us to be warm in our place.

I think it would be crazy for her to keep the basement at 70 degrees, but maybe a little help from her would go a long way in keeping our place warmer and cheaper
