nykeyoung: Printers

I finished with a novel manuscript. I'm trying to work through editing, but reading off of computer monitor is like staring at the sun. I don't want to abuse my home printer, but the manuscript is clocking in at 494 pages at the moment.

Anybody know a good printing place?

srslysarahcee: Public Transportation

 Hey all!

I skimmed through previous posts but didn't find much, so any help at all would be really appreciated!

I've recently been interviewed for a job at Grand View University. I'm from several states away. I do not have a car at the moment, and if things work out and I am offered the position, I'm wondering how important having a car in Des Moines is.

So I guess my question is, how feasible is it to live and work in Des Moines (specifically in the Grand View area) without a car? Is DART expensive? Safe? Reliable? Is it a million times easier to have a car? Does everyone have a car?

Any experience or insight or advice is appreciated!

Also, online communities, blogs or information about the Des Moines area?

ixion: Looking for Picture Locations

I am looking for some on-location areas to have family pictures taken. It is myself and my 3 children. If you have any suggestions of parks, cool scenery, unique places, etc ... I would love to hear them so I can check the places out to see if they will work for us.

(This is X-Posted to both DSM Communities, my LJ, and txted to friends!)

arwynestaria: House for sale!

Hello! I'm just dropping in to see if anyone is looking for a nice house outside of town... It's in a quiet town about 40 minutes outside the metro. It's my sister's house, and I am trying to help her out a little using the good ol' internetz.

I posted an ad on Craigslist for it, so instead of trying to clutter up everybody's lists, I'm just going to post the link on here.

Have a good day!
