Stamped concrete is the way to go IMHO.  We have had decks which require a ton of maintenance.  Brick pavers are beautiful but over time can have issues as well (and very expensive dependent on brick, design, grading, etc.).  This time we went with stamped concrete and extremely happy.

We lived there for 17 years, both kids went to Neuqua High School (SW side of town), son played baseball there.  Great place to raise a family, lots to do, parks, downtown shopping and food/bars.  We are in Plainfield now, built a house out here in the corn fields about 3 years ago.  Son in Oswego (with granddaughter), daughter lives in the city.  Plainfield and Oswego both border Naperville.  Do you have school age kids?  Feel free to email if you want to chat or ask more about the area.

With the kids grown up, Mrs Naperville still gets me a package of these creme filled delights every year.  Now with our new granddaughter, the baskets will come back out and I will definitely pass on this one to her.  Also looking forward to the Easter egg hunts as well.

We always did a mix of candy, toys, books CDs/DVDs.  Depends on the age they were.

Whenever Mrs. Naperville and I come to Cleveland for a game, we always opt for the Club Seats.  Good view, good food, relax before and after the game.  Also a chance to cool off if real hot (and easy access to rest rooms).  We also stay at the Ritz Carlton or Renaissance (Marriott points don't you know) and just walk over to the ball park.

Ever been to Europe/London?  Many words mean vastly different things between here and there.  Also, you obviously don't know the club scene in London/Paris/Berlin, etc..  People of all races/color can get turned away, and do, for having a thread out of place.  Most discriminate purely on look/vanity and I don't mean skin color.  Guarantee they get in if they met the dress code for that specific club.

Three full days in Rome was enough for us.  Vatican (recommend a private tour) and the rest of the city can be covered in that time.  We stayed about 2 blocks from the Trevi Fountain which was nice.

For us, we preferred our 7 days outside of Florence (rented a villa) and get a car.  Florence is fantastic especially if you like museums/art and is a great launching point by car for Lucca, Pisa, Siena, San Gimignano, etc.

If we did it again, I would have started with Rome then Florence.  We did in reverse order and wished we would have had the time to "relax" more in Florence vs. the quick pace of Rome.  YMMV

"Character issues are a high concern in the NFL"

Can't tell if you are being sarcastic or not.......

When I lived in Atlanta in the mid 90's (had just moved there) I got pulled over for doing 70 in a 55.  Was laughing when the trooper approached my window.  She asked why i was laughing and I told her I was new to the area and did not think it was possible to get a speeding ticket in Atlanta based on what I had seen.  She laughed and let me go with a warning.

BTW, they don't have "accidents" in Atlanta.  They are "wrecks".

No carry on fees for United, American, SW, Delta, etc., although the checked bags fees are crazy.  While I get free checked bags because of status, I never check them.  Eliminates any flexibility for flight changes, waiting for bags, losing bags, etc.  I can easily pack a week in my roll a board, my challenge is traveling with Mrs. Naper.  lol

Sorry, would not know.  I have strict rules regarding flying airlines like this.  The odds of getting stuck somewhere because one of their "ten" planes broke down go up exponentially when compared to flying United, American, Southwest, etc.  Pay a little more and get a little more piece of mind. Oh, and never ever check your bags.....
