2021.10.12 01:01 autotldr Former tobacco field where MLK Jr worked to be preserved
This is the best tl;dr I could make, original
reduced by 55%. (I'm a bot)
SIMSBURY, Conn. - A plot of land in Connecticut, once a thriving tobacco farm where Martin Luther King Jr. worked as a college student in the 1940s, will be protected for its historic and cultural significance to the state's civil rights history. Summary Source FAQ Feedback Top keywords: SIMSBURY#1 Connecticut#2 King#3 land#4 work#5
The nonprofit Trust for Public Land and the town of Simsbury plan to hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony Oct. 16 for the Meadowood site.
The rest will be saved for future needs of the town of Simsbury while two acres will be kept for historic preservation purposes to tell the history of the property.
"Together we will ensure that a cornerstone of Connecticut's agricultural and cultural legacy remains intact."
Historians believe King's experiences in Connecticut influenced his decision to become a minister and civil rights leader.
He was among a group of students from Atlanta's Morehouse College students who were recruited by tobacco growers in Connecticut to work in the fields so they could earn money for tuition.

2020.08.16 00:15 jon74 Should I build a house on a lot that sits behind other houses and is not visible from the neighborhood cul de sac?
This is the lot in question: 12503 Meadowood Dr Silver Spring, MD 20904 Apparently, has been listed on and off for years. There are next to no 1+ acre lots in our area. The story on this one is that it's on a "paper road" but the developer never moved ahead w/ development and now the county says this is the only approved lot to build upon. There is an easement to access it from an adjacent street, going over a pipeline that runs next to and behind a neighbor's house.
Other options in the same price range are completely flat lots (no possibility of walkout basement); smaller lots ( ~.66 acres instead of our desired 1+); or further away (adding an extra 30-40+ min to work commute / distance from family); or being in not so nice neighborhoods / school districts.
Any advice or considerations we should be aware of when considering building behind other houses? Would this affect resale if we decided to sell later down the line? Are houses behind other houses generally less sought after? Decreased "curb appeal" since it wouldn't technically be on the curb?

2019.06.08 17:53 antikarma98 Best breakfast in the Madison area
We've all seen posts here asking, "What restaurant serves the best breakfast in Madison?" Well, my intent is to answer that question more than to ask it, but you're invited to tell me exactly what I'm full of, besides hotcakes and an omelet.
I love breakfast at a good diner. It's the ultimate treat of living in the first-world, right up there with freedom of speech and certain sexual kinks and the American flag. So I've tried most of Madison's diners, cafés, and restaurants, and since I almost always order the same breakfast, it's easy to compare the food and service. Also, the more times the waiter or waitress calls me "Honey" or "Sweetie," the bigger the tip.
My usual order is a Denver omelet (with cheese? yes, please) and hash browns with (usually) toast or (sometimes) an English muffin, plus a short stack of pancakes on the side. Also, coffee with refills, please. And yes, that's quite a large breakfast, but I have it only once or twice a week, and eat sanely at home, so my body lets me get away with it.
TL/DR — It all comes down to either The Curve or Pat O'Malley's Jet Room.
First off, let's consider the chains — it's breakfast and it's adequate, but the food and service, flavors and ambiance, seats and décor and everything else is exactly the same as the last time you had breakfast anywhere on earth under the brand name on the sign. Maybe that's a good thing, if you're new in town or want something reliable.
Among the chains, the Original Pancake House in Monona has good food, good service, and easy parking, but also has caked-on dust on the overhead fans, which suggests to me that they might be lackadaisical about cleanliness in the kitchen as well. Better, and recommended if you're choosing only between the chains, is the Original Pancake House on University Avenue in Madison, which seems cleaner and dependably brings out a good breakfast.
After that, my second choice among the chains would be Perkins over Denny's or The Egg & I, with IHOP in last place. To tell the truth, I'd rather skip breakfast than eat at IHOP — we had scary-bad service and food on multiple occasions at both the eastside and westside IHOPs. But more to the point, in Madison you can do much better than the chains.
Next, let's list some restaurants I've tried but sadly eliminated from the competition, and why:
Copper Top Restaurant — Service is friendly, the waitress will call you "Honey," and your breakfast is going to be good, occasionally excellent. Coffee refills are frequent and generous. It's definitely a good choice if you're in the neighborhood, but I'm rarely in that neighborhood and it's a long drive from home. I'd recommend the Copper Top, but there are better choices. Eliminated in the semi-finals.
Fair Oaks Diner — With checkerboard tiles on the floor and old-style stools at the counter, this place looks like the perfect all-American diner, and I wish it was. But my wife and I had breakfast there twice and lunch once, and all three times they lost our order in the kitchen. All three times, we waited forty-five minutes while folks who came in and ordered after us finished their meals and left. All three times we were polite in our inquiries, but we never heard an apology beyond "I'll check to see what the problem might be." Third time's the anti-charm; never again.
Lazy Jane's Café & Bakery — Top notch food and service, at reasonable prices. My wife and I happily ate there at least twice a month, for years. So what's not to love? Folk music — two of the last three times we went, there was a guy with a guitar providing live music, accompanied by an amplifier turned up to eleven. We politely asked the manager if they could reduce the volume, and she just as politely declined. We took our plates to a far-distant table, but the music was inescapable. After the second time, we simply stopped visiting Lazy Jane's, but we never stopped jokingly reciting the lyrics to "Freight Train," the folk song that nudged us out the door both times. "When I die, oh bury me deep / Down at the end of old Chestnut Street / So I can hear old Number Nine / As she comes rolling by…" It's been several years so let me know, please, whether Lazy Jane's still has too-loud entertainment — if not, maybe I'll give them another chance.
Monty's Blue Plate Diner. Madison seems to love this place, and the food is never disappointing but, to me, never truly great. Their leisurely opening time (7:00 AM during the week and 7:30 on weekends) makes it difficult to beat the rush, and there's always a rush. Whenever we've eaten at Monty's we've waited at least ten or fifteen minutes for a seat, sometimes longer, and because of the crowd the eventual service always seems (understandably) rushed, with little attention to detail and no hope of coffee refills. There's also something about the architecture (it's a converted gas station) that makes the restaurant almost painfully loud when it's busy, which is always. If the folks in the next booth (or even several booths away) are chatting even with normal "inside voices," every word bounces off the wall until the sound becomes a cacophony, making breakfast at Monty's more tense than relaxing.
Ogden's North Street Diner. I adore this place, highly recommend it, and it's right in my neighborhood. Walking distance, so I don't have to worry about parking (and that's a plus, since there's no parking lot). The food is always excellent, the ambiance is warm and welcoming, the service is sparkling, and don't forget to order their fabulous pie to go, for later. Ogden's loses points, though, for being in such a small building, since that usually means you'll wait for a seat. And it loses points for a more personal reason — it was my wife's favorite place for breakfast but she passed away, damn it, so the idea of eating at Ogden's seems sad to me now. Eliminated in the semi-finals.
The Parkway Family Restaurant. Good selection, good breakfast, good service and the waitress will probably call you "Honey." Bonus points for having the earliest opening time in town — 5:00 AM — so if you wake up early you can beat the rush. Everything is consistently good but just as consistently never quite great, and coffee refills are often hoped-for more than poured. Eliminated in the quarter-finals.
Sunroom Café on State Street. Recommended — quite good, borderline great, no real complaints. Eliminated in the quarter-finals.
And as a disclaimer, let's mention a few restaurants I haven't tried, but have heard good things about:
Basset Street Brunch Club — You tell me: I've heard rave reviews from some folks, and dire warnings from others, so I'm unsure and haven't yet tried it. Also, it's a Food Fight place, and I've never forgiven them for what they did to the Avenue Bar.
Circ, at the Madison Concourse Hotel. As a firm rule, I don't dine at places where the menu lists prices with only whole numbers — dollars but no cents, and no dollar sign. From sad experience, a menu that says "Eggs Benedict / 10" or "Omelettes / 13" is a clear warning that the service, ambiance, and prices will be a bit snooty for my taste; the opposite of a relaxed, "down home" diner.
Bennett’s Meadowood Country Club — Folks tell me their breakfast is yummy, but they used to (perhaps still do?) serve porn with breakfast, and that's impossible to get out of my head. Not that I'd object to porn, especially since I used to work in that industry, but I prefer porn in private, not with eggs and hash browns.
Marigold Kitchen — See Circ, above.
Mickie's Dairy Bar. This place must be good, since there's virtually always a line of folks on the sidewalk, waiting to get in. Soon as someone goes in the door, more people join the line. And that's what's kept me away — I want to walk in and sit down, place my order, and relax sipping my coffee, but it would be hard to relax when so many people are eyeing my seat. Does that line ever end? I could eat a lazy, leisurely breakfast anywhere else in town, finish, tip and pay and be on my way, while I'd still be standing in line at Mickie's.
Short Stack Eatery — I've had excellent milk shakes and malteds "to go" from Short Stack, but never tried their breakfast. Which is weird, since I love breakfast and that's their claim to fame. I'm put off by the perceived (but perhaps not real?) difficulty of parking in that busy area around State Street, and I've also hesitated because while they offer lots of hotcakes and scrambles, there are no omelets on the menu. Anyone can scramble eggs, but I can’t make an omelet, so for breakfast at a diner I want an omelet, darn it.
For me, the showdown for the championship is between The Curve on Park Street, and Pat O'Malley's Jet Room at the airport. Who wins? Read on, if you care or if you dare:
At The Curve, breakfast comes quickly, it's always excellent, their coffee is the best in town and frequently refilled, the service is astoundingly homey, the waitress always calls me "Honey" or "Sweetie," and the tab is always just a little bit less than you'd expect. The Curve does have a bit of a dingy look, especially from outside, because the windows are washed about once every other year. Other than that, though, it's hard to find anything to criticize at The Curve. Their breakfast varies between awesome and excellent. The vibe is friendly, the staff is friendly, the other customers are friendly, and the owner is frequently there and he's friendly too. So conversation is available if you're in the mood, but if you'd rather just sit and eat or read, nobody's feelings will be hurt. The experience is like eating breakfast in TV's Mayberry, but without the implied racism — people of all colors seem welcome at The Curve, as opposed to the all-white universe of The Andy Griffith Show.
At Jet Room, breakfast comes quickly too, and it's always excellent, the coffee is frequently refilled, and the service is astoundingly homey. The waitress never specifically calls me "Honey" or "Sweetie," but it's always implied. The bill is perhaps a buck or two more than The Curve, but still quite reasonable, and Jet Room includes bacon or sausage with you order hotcakes, while at The Curve the hotcake stands alone, so that explains the slightly higher tab. The English muffin at Jet Room is spectacular, perhaps the best I've ever had — it's much larger than a "standard" English muffin, much yummier with a firmer texture, and I'd wager they make it from scratch instead of pulling it from a plastic bag. Jet Room's windows are cleaner than at The Curve, presumably because the view of the airplanes is a big attraction (and nobody really wants to see the traffic on Park Street through The Curve's window). Also, Jet Room's menu promises that the pancakes are "light," and they deliver on that promise — they're light and fluffy and delicious.
It's a close call, but I prefer The Curve's "heavier" pancake and slightly more wonderful coffee. The Curve serves the best breakfast in Madison, for what little my opinion might be worth, and it's worth twenty bucks or so to me every Sunday morning, cash only, including a $5 tip.
I'd be surprised if nobody disagrees, so — please disagree, and explain the errors of my ways.
