coffee at this hour

But, Coffee Cartel is Open 24/7! Doesn’t This Mean Coffee is Great at Any Hour? That’s the line of reasoning and justification I tell myself when I want to have coffee after 10 or 11 p.m. or so. I don’t know why it matters, since a lot of people burn the midnight oil to get …

There’s No Lenovo Support Center in St. Louis

Lenovo G560 laptop keyboard

At least, I couldn’t find one when I needed it. About two weeks ago, when I broke my laptop by spilling water on it, I contacted a computer repair service that came up on Google. They suggested that I find a Lenovo Support Center to help me, and that I find it by typing “Lenovo …
