Re: “State Insists Dorothy Cooper Still Must Prove Her Last Name is Cooper

I just applied for Social Security as my last birthday turned out to be #66. I applied over 2 months ago and have not been "approved" yet. It seems my original SS card that I obtained before I was age 16 has a different middle initial. When I married I kept my maiden name as my middle name and dropped my birth middle name. The SS office told me that I now need to go to court and have my middle name legally changed to my maiden name before they can process my request for fifty (50) years of earned income social security insurance payments. This is WITH my birth certificate and a marriage certificate and a driver's license and a passport. Good luck voters!

Re: “When It's Time To De-List a Former Favorite Restaurant

My dilemma isn't so much "when" to cross a restaurant off my list but "how long" to leave it crossed off before giving it one more chance. I go to a place a few times, maybe 2 or 3, and absolutely love it then go back only to find poor service, less than great food, etc. I vow NEVER to go back but wonder if I should give them another chance even though I take the chance on spending hard earned money and getting ripped off again. Guess this could be one of those "fool me once" scenarios. I've experienced it lately with what should be a couple of wonderful small, healthy food places to eat that have driven me away with poor service and overpriced food. Yes, it's VERY disappointing.

Re: “Burger Up, 12South's new burger joint, piles the best elements of local flavor onto a (baked-fresh-daily) bun

Love, love, love Burger Up, but of course I am also a fan of Frothy Monkey. It is nice to always know the atmosphere and the food will be the best. I enjoy fresh food and unique menu selections and Burger Up offers both. I am NOT a "meat" eater so I enjoy the vegetarian selections but it is great to know the meat is local and grass-fed so I can enjoy my husband eating it ;o) The sweet potato fries are an excellent choice. I took pictures of the interior so I can replicate some of it in my basement renovation. If there is one negative about Burger Up it would be it's popularity. We went to eat on a Wednesday night this week and ended up just passing them by because they were full and the crowds were out the door and gathering on the sidewalk. I want them all to myself. Next time we'll go to Las Paletas for a before dinner cocktail popsicle while we wait for a place at Burger Up.
