Aldi's.

Chip Sealed ? Alas, I'm no paver, but it doesn't sound like that's loose gravel (?) Was the road re-paved, or just the pot-holes filled ?

by a tanker, which was connected to a dump truck being pulled backwards, which dumped gravel, which was tamped down by a heavy roller thing. Like this.

Aldi's, really? I'm thinking second hand stores, not cheap stuff.

It's horrible stuff by Herring (2.00 / 0) #4 Fri Aug 07, 2009 at 10:56:53 AM EST
Also adds a fair bit to the rolling resistance on a bike too. But it's cheaper than actually fixing the roads.

The road didn't need to be fixed by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #5 Fri Aug 07, 2009 at 11:00:49 AM EST
there weren't any potholes or anything. IIRC, the flyer said it was more of a cost effective maintenance thingie.

Thinking ahead by prestidigitizer (4.00 / 1) #6 Fri Aug 07, 2009 at 12:53:20 PM EST
Newspaper_mom thinks this will look good on the girls' college applications, I wasn't even thinking that far ahead, I was just thinking it was something to do to keep thirteen year old busy.

Over the next 5-10 years, it's possible that newspaper_mom will probably drive herself, her daughter or both of them crazy if she thinks too hard about that far ahead. Your take-it-as-it-comes view, while probably born of necessity, is probably a good idea anyway (and I've always thought you sound like a great dad.)

She is more uptight and controlling than we are by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #7 Fri Aug 07, 2009 at 01:38:39 PM EST
though she has three kids, closer together, than we do, and her thirteen year old is not the math and science whiz ours is.

We're all hoping the U of R keeps their "Rochester Promise" to give scholarships to graduates of the city schools, it would be nice to have a near Ivy League as a free backup plan.

Deseret Industries has 46 stores in Arizona, California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington.

Even Napoleon Dynamite shops there.
