Attended this year after a two year hiatus. And what a disappointment! Far, far too loud - amplified jazz, country, and steel drum bands competing with each other, so loud that it was nearly impossible to hear the carolers. At no time was there ever fewer than two bands that you could hear in any corner of the Gardens.
Far from the fun and tranquil events of the past. Until they figure out that loudly amplified music is out of place at this event we will not return.
Loved the event in the past... strolling peacefully, listening to the various artists in intimate settings along the paths, hot chocolate by the fire listening to the carolers or the barbershop quartet... Where did all of that go?6 months ago
Last week a couple of missionaries knocked on my door and asked which religion we "regularly practiced". I was fed up - we live in a nice high-income neighborhood which seems to attract Mormon missionaries like a magnet - we get "tracted" about every two months.
I told them we were Aztec, and invited them to come back during the next full moon.11 months ago
I am tired of reading about this cult and its members.
Last week, I was supposed to feel sorry for their mothers, who formed their own support group. Now, I am supposed to be concerned about their athletic futures.
Quit knocking on my door and go home. That solves both issues.11 months ago
Isn't Obama responsible for buying you a new one? Maybe a solar-powered unit? Certainly, reliable A/C is a health issue when the heat index approaches 110 degrees...11 months ago
"Cox representatives say it is another example of how the company is expanding products based on what customers ask for."
OK then. I'd like stable internet service at a price that doesn't change every three months. I'd like the echo in my phone service to go away permanently rather than randomly appearing during important calls. Oh, and I'd like to be able to talk to a real technician - not a drone who is reading the FAQs directly from the website - when I call with a problem.May 28, 2012

The Arizona legislature thanks you for leaving Kyrsten. May your overblown self-importance serve you well in your upcoming defeat.Jan 3, 2012
If you haven't ever experienced a real steam train pulling into station...well, you are missing something pretty special.Nov 7, 2011
They pulled over the car he was driving? With a winch, maybe? Did the car refuse to stop even though the driver tried?
Or, did they pull over the driver, who fled the vehicle?
I know the EVT is hurting for cash, but one would think they still had an editor who passed Grammar and Usage 101.Sep 28, 2011
He was arrested with a sword? So, he was arrested at swordpoint? Since when do we arm our cops with swords? Should they use it as a backup to their Taser but before using a gun?
Or perhaps the EVT needs a short education on the use of the English language. A man with a sword was arrested.Sep 28, 2011
