I stay alone. I don't do anything in this state to find out what's going on. I do know they have a nice zoo that is free and I love going there. The Mac center is in Salisbury and I can't stand that place and won't go there. They have done nothing for me. I also tried other things around here, but everyone wants to be paid for their services. Even when they say you don't have to pay they will 100 percent send you a bill. That means I don't try any of the services anymore.
