Morris Arboretum, North Philadelphia
Anybody know of a place in the city to donate (or even sell) used books, mostly but not all fantasy or science fiction, many of them oldish, and many of them kind of obscure? The dump in my hometown in MA has a "library" where you can leave and take books freely, and I was wondering if there was anything like that around here.
My first thought was Books Through Bars, but their website says they don't want genre fiction. I tried selling some books in West Philly a few years ago and had a bad experience, so I'm leery of lugging them out to bookstores unless there's a place nearby that I'm fairly sure will take them.
I started a rescue called Temple Cats to help save the stray and abandoned cats around Temple University - and there are probably hundreds of them, so it's a big job! If you can help in any way (fostering, donating, trapping, advertising, marketing) please check out our website and let me know! And spread the word! www.temple-cats.org

Apartment/townhome rentals in the Bensalem area?
If this isn't the right place to ask this, let me know and I'll delete it.
In a few months, my boyfriend and I will be looking for an apartment or townhouse (to rent). He's from Bensalem and wants to stay in the general area, which I'm fine with, but neither of us know too much about rentals in that area. We're looking in the price range of $1000/month or less and, like I said, we want to stay in or close to Bensalem. What I need are recommendations, places to stay away from, etc.. possibly even a helpful realtor in the area that deals with rentals. I'm googling like crazy but I really want some personal experiences. I'd appreciate anything that might be useful in our search for a place to live. Thanks so much :-)
hey, just wondering where some good places are around morrell park in the north east to go tonight with don't have a cover charge. my friend and I wanna drink and dance.
thanks in advance :)
Philadelphia Film Festival and CineFest 09
Philadelphia Film Festival and CineFest 09 is looking for volunteers.
I would like to invite you to join a new chapter in the ever-growing industry of film festival production, here in Philadelphia. The Philadelphia Cinema Alliance, in conjunction with the Philadelphia Film Society, is embarking on a film festival collaboration that we hope you will all be eager to support!
If you are a former Festival volunteer, choose the training session that applies to your position of interest (don’t forget to RSVP). Former Managers and Box Office Personnel MUST attend a training session. All former volunteers may begin to sign up for shifts after reviewing the volunteer schedule posted on our festival’s website, www.phillycinema.org, beginning Friday, March 6th, 2009.
so, i may be taking a job in philly. i would be completely new to the area and have no concept of location and such. could anyone give me any idea of what areas would be good to live in and which ones to stay away from. when i say stay away, i mean YOU wouldn't want to live there and you probably wouldn't visit friends there. On another note, what's the local average wage there? thanks in advance!
Rockin' St. Paddy's Day Party!
I recently moved here from San Diego and unfortunately need to find a new chiropractor sooner then I had hoped. I need a chiropractor who takes Blue Cross, does manual adjustments (I can be hard to adjust, so they need to be fairly strong), and uses a drop table; preferably in the West Chester area (although I am willing to drive a bit).
Thanks in advance!
Massage studios / clinics
Looking to get a gift cert for someone for a massage or massages and wondering if you guys have recommendations? I have always heard about the massage school on Market Street which I found online here (http://massagearts.com/clinic.html
Also I have seen there is a massage clinic that opened up on 3rd Street last summer/fall. I think it is just called "Old City Massage Clinic" or something like that. Has anyone been there that can tell me how it is?
Looking for an affordable place because I'd like to be able to give a gift cert for several massages... but if I need to I will just go high end so he has a good experience.
Thanks in advance!!
