WTH Is Going On With Iowa City Parking Ramps

I was going to write about my heart attack last June 4th and the subsequent chronic heart failure that I am now dealing with and how to help others avoid this outcome, but something else has come to my attention.
I will write about the above mentioned heart problems soon, but really I am trying to assist a nice person keep her job and would like to let you all know of the horrible experience I had today while using the parking ramp by the Sheraton/Bread Garden/Library.
I dropped Melissa off at the library and ran to the pharmacy at the hospital and upon my return I parked on level 2 of the aforementioned city parking ramp. I then went to the library and got a book. Melissa and I headed back to the parking ramp and there is a machine that indicates that you must put the ticket into it, whereupon you pay, and have 15 minutes to exit the ramp.
The only problem with the above scenario is that the stupid machine did not work. It sucked in the parking ticket and then indicated it was not valid. It would not release it, nor would it allow us to pay to get out of the ramp.I was extremely upset, because I had not used a parking ramp since 2003 when I lived on Iowa Avenue and managed the Bruegger's Bagel Bakery there, so i was not familiar with this new technological acheivement.
Melissa struggled with the machine, while I tried to figure out what to do next. After a good 20 minutes of this nonsense of trying to coaxe the ticket back out of the recalcitrant machine, she succeeded. We the drove to the exit where an actual person was working. She was a very pleasant blonde lady, who told us that the machine messes up all the time and what was most disturbing is that she said, the machine was going to be her replacement.
WTH!! Why would the city replace a perfectly competent person, in favor of a machine that did not work on my first attempt. I do not understand the stupidity involved in this decision. I know for a fact if I was not a resident of Iowa City and came here to shop or for anything and had a problem like I did with their intelligent machine, I would not use the parking ramp ever again, no matter how many times I would have to drive around the block to park somewhere safer.
Is there others out there who have had similar BAD experiences with this parking machine and if so please let the city know, so that they will NOT replace the very good workers that they currently have, but will remove these moronic machines, that don't even work while they are new. Can you imagine how bad they will function when they get some age on them. There will be people trapped in the parking ramps on a daily, perhaps an hourly basis.
Let us make known to the "geniuses" that approved these parking machines  that the best way to represent our city and get people to use the parking ramps is to make sure that we have a flesh and blood attendant in the ramps when things go wrong.
Have a great day and again I want to thank the young lady in the parking ramp for helping with the messed up ticket.

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!!


I have not been posting as I have been worried about not having a job and am spending every waking moment trying to raise enough money to buy this business before he has to shut it down. In addition to that I have been applying and interviewing all over in case it doesn't work out!!
We just received our new Signed Limited Edition Shonn Green Prints, which turned out extremely well, and sales should pick up with this new item.
It is so nice out, that the Coral Ridge Mall has been pretty slow this week, so it is actually an excellent time to stop by and do some shopping, if you are in the area.
Have A Happy St. Patrick's Day and please follow the link to Yahoo News, to learn about the Real St. Patrick!!

13 Facts About Friday The 13th Link


How is your Friday the 13th going?
I can see that Friday the 13th is already going bad, as the House has just passed the Stimulus Bill to kill America, and snow is flying, so I guess we are in for a scary evening ;)
Here is the story at Yahoo News:
If you fear Friday the 13th, then batten down the hatches. This week's unlucky day is the first of three this year.
The next Friday the 13th comes in March, followed by Nov. 13. Such a triple whammy comes around only every 11 years, said Thomas Fernsler, a math specialist at the University of Delaware who has studied the number 13 for more than 20 years.
By the numbers
Here are 13 more facts about the infamous day, courtesy of Fernsler and some of our own research:

America's Greatest President Turns 200 Today!


200th Birthday Of America's Greatest President
My birthday wishes to Abraham Lincoln on his 200th birthday, :"Today, Thursday , February 12th, is the 200th birthday of the Greatest President in American history, and I just want to say Rest In Peace Mr. President,
what?...sorry someone just looked over my shoulder and "didn't" know who the Greatest President in American history was.
Actaully, no one did "this" year, but I like that line, so I put it in whenever I write or talk about Abraham Lincoln:)
Wow, I was surprised, as Obviously it was Abraham Lincoln. There follows two links to show anyone who cares how great he was!
The first is to the "Lincoln Institute Presents Abraham Lincoln's Classroom" which has days and days of material for a Lincoln fair weather friend or a true fanatic.
The second link is to a website that has a great deal of information about the Lincoln Museum in Springfield, Illinois, and their preparations for his 200th birthday next year!!Happy 200th Birthday, Mr. President!!
Your Number 1 fan!!
Daniel
