Apple vs. PC

The Family PC just died! We are now in the market for another computer. I'm looking into the iMac - but wonder if it's worth the extra $? Any thoughts? Is there a huge learning curve moving from Windows?

Cost of Braces

My son will be needing braces soon. Just regular braces, no palate expander or anything else needed. We have no dental insurance so I'm curious as to what others have recently paid. I'm particularly interested in Dr. Orenstein or Dr. Mellas. Thanks!

Another suicide at RTSP gun range

At the risk of starting a big gun control debate (and possibly suicide), I am going to post this. Seems there was another suicide at the RTSP gun range in Randolph. Although there are background checks for buying a gun, I guess it's very easy to rent one at a shooting range. I did rent there one time and it was not difficult at all. This is the second occurrence this year that someone walked into this place, rented a gun, and killed himself in public. This is horrible that someone can do this and traumatize the people there enjoying... More

Ski/snow board resort advice

I know absolutely nothing since I don't ski or snowboard, I am looking for ideas for a Christmas gift to send someone for 2 days but don't want to send them to Shawnee or Camelback since they go there all the time. I am looking for a place that they can just walk outside their hotel and ski without driving or getting on a shuttle. Looking for pa or ny locations.

Hunter orange clothing question

Is it mandatory for hunters to wear orange? I ask because I ran into 5 hunters today in the woods and only 1 had an orange hat. They are difficult to see in the area I was in. This was Stephens state park.

Mansfield Police K9 Unit

HL pop up ads frustrating

Is anyone else having the repeated frustrating experience of loading up HL forum and selecting a topic, clicking, only to have the forum "jump" down due to slow loading ads at the top - and then, of course, you have opened the wrong topic, and so you go back to the forum, it loads the ad, think it's done and click, only to have it jump again and you've opened the wrong topic... LOL, maybe I am being too impatient, or a slow learner, but it's happened so many times - wondering if anyone else is... More
