What is correct?

Posted by MichaelFR on June 12, 2004

I am unable to figure what is best for the items below, your help is welcome:

"once in a while" or "once in awhile"
If both are OK, is there any difference in the meaning?

And giving directions, I am lost between:
"...take Maple Street on your left"
"...take Maple Street to your left"
"...make a left on Maple Street"
"...make a left to Maple Street"

Thank you very much, have a good day/week-end.
