Uber XL Launches in Boston

Uber Boston

Uber? Say what now? What the heck is Uber? That’s what I was saying last week when everyone was talking about rides from the airport to the Ritz Carlton. Sign up with Uber. Download Uber. Check out Uber. Okay!

Uber is an iPhone/Android/Blackberry app that allows you to request a ride at the tap of a button and summon a professional driver to your side within minutes. Track your driver’s arrival on a map and receive a notification when they arrive. There’s no need to worry about handling cash – your fare is automatically billed to your credit card on file and there’s no need to tip.
We first used Uber Black on Thursday night to get to a party at the Swan House, you know, the big old house of Dr. Snow in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. We easily downloaded the app about 30 minutes before we were supposed to be arriving at the Swan House. In minutes, we got a call back from an Uber driver who said he would be picking us up in just five minutes! No calling or hailing cabs, no meter. Instead, a lovely black limousine, with leather seats, cold water and no handling of cash! Uber is such a clever idea.

We used Uber to get home too and loved that we could request a driver with ease just by clicking on the iPhone app. The three of us got back to the Ritz in a jiffy and had the same awesome experience using Uber as we did getting to the party. It was seamless, stress-free and comfortable. We were then asked to rate our drivers and we gave them both 5 stars.
If you haven’t tried Uber in and around Boston yet, you need to do it. In addition to their successful Uber X offerings, yesterday they  launched Uber XL, where users in Boston can request an UberXL car type, which can seat up to six people! Sounds perfect for the Stow family! You can now round up the family for an outing in Boston this summer and use Uber! Pretty, clever right?

      I wish I had more time to organise my kntiting patterns, I have all the folders and pretty paper to cover the folders and the plastic sleeves and pile of printed out patterns .they just haven’t managed to merge as yet. And of course I’d love to organise my yarn, but it’s just sitting in random plastic tubs and green bags in wardrobes and under beds and where ever else I can stuff it .the curse of a HUGE stash and not enough time to knit it![]

      I want to organize my 1 year old’s clesot!!! He’s only 1, but he already has soooo many clothes. Hand me downs from my older son and tons of clothes that were given to me by a friend, not to mention some that were actually bought new. The good thing is he will not need clothes until he is 5. The bad thing is we can’t get to them because they are disorganized in tupperware boxes in the bottom of his clesot. They need to be organized by size and the ones he can wear now need to be hung up ou vey .[]
