This is my sec...

My trusty old Motorola cell phone is on it's way to the electronic graveyard.  It has a cracked case, it randomly turns itself off, and it has seen better days.  I hate to give it up because of the Call Forwarding Cradle - when in this recharger/forwarding unit, it rings the phone in the house an...
Michelle Laurence, Animal Control Officer, spoke to the Addison Pacesetters at the monthly coffee klatch at Dunn Bros Coffee on Beltline Road last week.  She was entertaining and informative.  Topics ranged from bobcats to feral cats and from feeding the ducks in Les Lacs (please, don't) to walki...
