At Middletown Regional Flight Training Institute’s runway base, a gang of FAA-certified sky jockeys lead a flight-training program suited for all experience levels. They help visitors unearth the magic of small-plane aeronautics with a discovery flight or brush up on regulations, radio procedures, and reading the weather's latest sonnets in a flight simulator. Rentals from the fleet provide access to IFR-certified sky steeds seven days a week, accommodating schedules with flexible flight training and loggable hours of skywriting notes to earthbound sweethearts.
Since 1989, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? has saved more than 1.5 billion pounds of possessions from nearby landfills, earning mentions on Dr. Phil and a starring role on A&E's Hoarders. After booking appointments, clients receive a two-hour window during which the crew will arrive, as well as a warning phone call 15–30 minutes before its actual appearance. Once onsite, the team quickly clears away 19 types of undesirable items from cluttered homes, businesses, and construction sites, loading them into their truck before thoroughly cleaning the vacated area to make way for life-size statues of Felix Unger, the patron saint of cleanliness. Once loaded, the bric-a-brac makes its way to recycling centers, donation drops, and safe disposal sites, preventing usable furniture, computer monitors, and worn-out banana suits from languishing in landfills.
With more than 20 frozen-yogurt flavors, upward of 50 toppings, and the freedom to combine them in any combination, the variety of treats that Bad Frog Frozen Yogurt's customers can devise is virtually infinite. Customers grab a cup and head to the treat dispensers for yogurt, all of which carry the live-culture seal. Though the flavors may change frequently, the shop always offers nonfat, low-fat, and no-sugar-added options to let health-minded customers indulge without guilt and to let frat boys save room on rowdy frozen-yogurt crawls. Once flavors are selected, visitors sidle up to the toppings bar to customize their treat with strawberries, Oreos, or morsels of mochi.
