taylorsville: Another Anchor on it's way out. - 01/22/11 07:27 PM
A while back I wrote a post on a neighborhood anchor store closing.

"Store Closing, Kmart, this store only, Everything must go! This should get really interesting now. I don';t know how all of the little satellite stores will be able to hang on now. This Kmart store is the other anchor store in a shopping complex. The stores are on a rather busy corner off theBangerter Highway and 5400 South.     I would almost have to chalk tthis one up to … (4 comments)

I just updated an earlier post http://activerain.com/blogsview/757736/taylorsville-utah-fire-station about the Taylorsville Fire Department, part of the Unified Fire Authority in Salt Lake County, Utah. It seems one of my early posts on activerain is found when people Google Taylorsville Fire department, they find my post.

Today the caller said I smell smoke and I think I want the fire department to check it out. I told him he might want to … (5 comments)

taylorsville: Thai Delight, A Wonderful Place to Eat - 03/24/09 12:41 AM
My friends and family love to eat at this wonderful Thai resteraunt. Thai Delight has authentic Thai food along with other popular oriental dishes. Now this is not a fancy place. It is rather simple in fact. The food is amazing and comes in healthy portions. Pricing is resonable and you are going to love the food. The larger the group the better, we order several different dishes and then pass them around family style and it makes for truly great values. For those who are not familiar with Thai food I have a few suggestions.

Paad Si-ew; Pan fried … (6 comments)

taylorsville: Great Places to Eat - 09/19/08 07:45 PM
Went out to dinner tonight at the Gecko Resteraunt in South Jordan, Utah. We enjoy our meals there, I had the shredded beef burrito and my wife loves the mexican pizza there. Service is great, the chips and salsa are wonderful. The chips are warm when they come to you. When the whole meal is over you have to have the Gecko Bavarian Mints. They are to die for.
 There are some wonderful eating establishments here in the Salt Lake Valley. From time to time I'll elaborate more. If there is somewhere you would recomend I would love to hear about … (2 comments)
