We have seen other examples of how the internet has put some power back in the hands of consumers. Lending Tree for mortgages and Car Direct for buying a car are just a couple of examples.
While not parallel locally we have seen how a service like NeighborRide has provided a service to seniors that is more convenient and less costly than taxis.
I came across this quote and wanted to pass it along.
"Life is mostly froth and bubble, Two things stand like stone, Kindness in another's trouble, Courage in your own." Gordon, Adam Lindsay
