    RANT: Surprised 1939 termed historic

    RAVE: Happy with holiday greeting

    This Christmas really left a good feeling in us! All the stores we shopped at said “Merry Christmas.” If we saw “Happy Holidays,” we did not shop there. But there were few, and needless to say we spent way too much on Christmas presents.

    Rave: Delighted with garage service

    I am writing to tell you about fantastic customer service I received at Midtown Motors garage. I had a problem in which my left turn signal made a buzzing sound instead of blinking.
