I would like to write for a not very well known site of the Ronald McDonald Enterprise. It is about the Guest houses built near many children hospitals thruout the USA (as far as I know)

Our daughter was born in July 2006. Two days later she had very high temperature and instead of checking out she was rushed to the intensive unit. We wanted to breastfeed her and the only way was to find means to be near to the hospital at the time she was treated. The hospital she was born is about an hour without traffic from our home, so traveling was not an option. naturally a hotel was an option. Then we found out about the Ronald McDonald's houses. There was one on a walking distance to the hospital unit were our daughter was held.

The seed money for this establishment is given by the McDonalds Enterprises. The big chunk of the expenses is covered by private and non private donations. The cost to stay was like $40 or $50 per night. Against that you are getting room with two queen size beds, TV, Telephone, full bath, towels, toy gifts for kids and you name it. Beside that there is huge kitchen and dining area downstairs with guest designated shelves in the refrigerators to store purchased perishable food, many cooking spots with gas stoves and all the utensils. There is a pantry with free non perishable items like, cereal, canned fruit and vegetables, pasta, jelly, e.t.c. On top of everything three or four times during a week, there are volunteers preparing dinner for the families who stay there while their child is in the hospital.

There is also indoor and outdoor children playground.

I will remember my stay in the Ronald McDonald's House for the rest of my life. We had the help we needed in one of the happiest and the same time very difficult time of our lives.

Thank you Ronald McDonald!

Most of their toys are wooden. Puzzles, puppets and dolls, arts and craft supplies, building blocks. I often buy their products for our child and for her friends on different occasions.

www.Alpharooms.com

I had the misfortune to book a hotel by using the service of www.Alpharooms.com. It is a very easy to book and the prices are very tempting, but the things stop there. After wards there is no communication at all, nor by e-mail nor by phone. In fact there is a costumer service number you can call (very expensive), wait for a response and usually not get any live person. There is a little more luck when you call the numper for booking, but when the other site finds out you are calling to complain, ususally you get put back to the waiting line.

Their cancellation policy is also a ripoff because for +56 days cancellation you would be charged %20 of the amount paid.

My experience is: I booked on February 07; paid in full online for hotel, transfers and paper voucher. There was an automatic e-mail assuring the delivery of the paper voucher within 3 to 5 days. The next day I realized that I need to change something about the taxi transfers I needed and sent an iquiry for change. Then I found out how lousy is their costumer service.

I have sent six e-mails include one to their marketing manager ( I was lucky that I foung out his e-mail address, but this is another story) and spent I do not know how much time on the phone and the expenses with that without result

Then I contacted my Credit Card to see my options, because after all I did not know how favorable their cancellation works (you can do it online). From my Credit Card company I had the assurance that they are on my side in case of cancellation and dispute. I inquried a dispute of the charges an then I did the cancellation online on Feb 27, 2010. Today is March 19, 2010 I still do not have conformation of the canceled booking by Alpharooms nor refund.

It is a new site for me, with free download of music. I did download about 20 songs. The download is fast. I was looking for old performers. The selection was limited but surprisingly I found songs that I have never heard from performers I like from 70's, 80's,90's. So far my anti virus and mall ware programs did not indicate anything wrong during the browsing and downloading process.

I have purchased all my cameras and video equipment from this store. Besides camera and video they have computers, audio, lighting, binoculars on consumer and professional level. They are on top of the game for equipment authorized to be sold in the USA. Excellent costumer service. The return policy is standard.

I browsed the site extensiwely and did not find rude (it is relative term though) or sexual jokes. It sounded clean to me like the name of the site states.

I have used this site frequently to check arrival flights to JFK, Newark and La Guardia airports. Very easy to use and the information is most of the time very accurate. There is a map of all US airports and many oversea airports. So it is not limited to the TriSate area only.

There are many similar sites out there. Another one is: www.flightview.com

Finally I found an online dictionary portal that gives me branching to many great dictionaries and language translators to chose from.
