EB Pic Issues

Anybody experiencing display issues? The pictures display very large. Sometimes all I see is an eighth of the frame until I click into the story. Thoughts? Let's discuss. 😎

  • Thanks for the input. Im also looking at EB on phone. Seems like it's a programming thing, A CSS thing, html thing...either way, it's something. Thanks Every Blockers.

Does anyone have recommendations for an electrician in the neighborhood? We need to install a small chandelier and would rather have someone professional do the job than mess with the electrical wires at home.

Coyotes???

My husband and a friend were sitting out on our front porch last night, Friday night, pretty late. They both thought they had seen a dog across the street. Noticing that the dog was on its own, they pay closer attention. Until they realized it was a coyote... I'm not too sure if I believe him, but he swears it was. He said it was a little bigger then our golden retriever, which is an 80 lb boy. We live by the corner of Winnemac and Claremont. Has anyone heard or seen anything like this??

  • Budlong Woods neighbor Chicago girl for life

    They have been in the area for years. Every so often on a very quiet night, you might here them in River Park when an ambulance is going by, howling with the sirens. They are being tracked and studied. I am happy to have them. They keep the rat population down. I have only seen one twice in the all the time I have lived here. They are very shy creatures.

  • MandaLeigh Here I Is.

    I love the coyotes. They were here before us!

Please get your car alarm under control!!

Dear Person who parks near Grace and Fremont,

PLEASE PLEASE make your car alarm stop going off all the darn time! It goes off at 3am, 7am, lunchtime, and always the early evening. I'm pretty sure that your car isn't being broken into otherwise the incessant noise would have stopped because someone stole your car. Please for the love of God, remember where you parked and stop this awful noise pollution at all hours.

  • I believe this car is now parked at Wilton/Cornelia -- The alarm has gone off with each passing train since 9am -- What did you do when you made this post? I'd like to follow up similarly!

6-10 shots fired 2:25pm on Wilson & Magnolia

Just heard shots from my back deck. Scanner says black male with dreadlocks ( gold tips ) red shirt and camo shorts is shooter. Lovely...

  • Happened right in front of me. Kid threw a bottle at a black suv pulling out of the strip mall, and another kid opened fire on the suv as it sped out. They looked like they were only 16 years old with dreads and a small black pistol.

  • Scanner says they have possible shooter at 4600 block on N Malden. Be safe out there.

  • Any idea what happened near Gross Park (Washtenaw and Gunnison) and hour ago? SUVs all left, but not sure what happened after four loud bangs.

    Well, it's off topic from the noise violations, but here are some thoughts. Ugh...if you're on a floor above other tenants, it may be that the clog exists in pipes in the apartment(s) below you. And...what goes down the bathtub drain, other than H2O? Hope there's a drain strainer to catch hair from shampooing etc.

    Or, there may be a problem with the drain lines from your building that go to the street. Tell you landlord than it's not draining.

    And, the best drain opener is non-caustic, it's Earth Enzymes Natural Drain Opener. I use it as a weekly keep-drains/pipes open approach. Don't use stuff like Draino, because those are caustic products and they erode the pipes and eroded pipes eventually break.

    maybe you should just get a new plan w/ RCN?

  • Good to know! I threatened to leave about 6 months ago (even though I have no option) and they dropped it about 100 bucks. So I'm waiting for the next shoe to drop. And it still isn't as good as a brand new customer package. I'll just keep playing the game. But to your point, I won't sacrifice speed. Thanks d3

I have a deck above a 3 car garage that the prior owner painted. With the weather conditions this paint looks terrible and is peeling off. I would like the deck to be stripped of the paint and then stained. The deck is approximately 20x25. We live in Lakeview near the Diversey and Ashland crossroads. Please pass along suggestions.

    Watch the fireworks that the Saddle & Cycle put on. They are located at Marine Dr/Foster. You can get a great show from Foster Beach or from the park between Marine Dr/LSD north of the field house. It's starts at 9pm.

  • Evanston has fireworks starting at 9:15. Can be seen from most of its lakefront parks.

Free or cheap summer playgroups for toddlers?

Wondering if there are any free or cheap summer playgroups for toddlers in the 60625 area? I know of the Friday story time at the Library but I was wondering if there was anything else going on during the week to keep us busy.

  • When my kids were little we took them to the mommy/daddy and me classes at Wright College. Most were for ages 2 and up and under $30 for 6 weeks of class. They also have learn to swim classes for little ones.

  • Also, River pool has a kiddie area that is perfect for toddlers, and it's free!

Mumford and Sons

While I can't hear the music, can someone tell me whether or not the cheers In the distance are coming from the concert? I'm at Paulina and Montrose.

  • Nk

    They should make sure future concerts are quieter or the world might literally end.

  • Moominsean Takes funny pictures with pretty cameras.

    I could hear it clearly at Leland and Leavitt, but it didn't bother me. The noise was worse from people screaming and throwing firecrackers for two hours about the Blackhawks win. I don't particularly care for Mumford and Sons, but it's nice that some activity is working it's way up north. But it's like anything, some will be fine with it, others will complain about it. To the naysayers, one or two shows a year is not going to break Uptown.

    I understand why you would feel that way. Typically in my experience I see people that have had some credit issues or maybe don't have a large enough deposit to buy. So they will agree to a negotiated sum as a deposit and the seller will agree to put a portion of the rent aside towards the purchase price. This is just the way I hand it when I represent a seller on a rent to own situation. So that's not to say a seller would accept a smaller deposit, that's all negotiable. It's just what I've seen in the past that sellers ask for a larger deposit to cover any potential loses.
