    We are all pretty much at the risk of getting "something from somebody (aka strangers)" - everyday of our lives. But what of the person who is laid-off and loses their job say as a sporting goods...

    + $ for food, treats, litter, etc. at probably $50 - $100 per month and arrangements to pay the veterinarian if something happens. And that's if you find someone willing to watch them just out of...

    Well, if they're repairing the same one that was damaged, yes, it crosses the Potomac. The Shenandoah branches off the Potomac just south of the bridge.

    Food for thought:
    Driving will be cheaper out of pocket and at worse break even - even if you can get <$150 RT flights Nashville to Logan. Downside is driving time, but flying is still always a...

    The 4000 footer club is basically an AMC gig. As such, some over-reaction and posturing is not unexpected.
