  • Joan M. Back in Lincoln Square and liking it.

    Who's oosha?

  • Joan, Oosha is someone who gave me thumbs down for one of my long diatribes. I don't blame them for hating long diatribes. I hate long diatribes myself, just not mine 'cause our own farts don't smell, do they. It's only other people's farts that smell. Anyway, I was curious...

    Joan, Oosha is someone who gave me thumbs down for one of my long diatribes. I don't blame them for hating long diatribes. I hate long diatribes myself, just not mine 'cause our own farts don't smell, do they. It's only other people's farts that smell. Anyway, I was curious about what part of the diatribe he or she disagreed with since I went on and on about so many things and I don't follow right or left agendas for the sake of allegiance. I tend to disagree with both liberals and conservatives although I tend to favor the left as a more beneficial option for the average citizen. I just don't accept full ideological packages. I focus on specifics regardless of which party supports what. Just wanted to know their views but they probably just hate harangues.

ISO Pickup truck with good suspension

I have about 5 radiators I would like to take to the scrap yard. I don't have a truck, nor am I trying to spend much to rent one. If you want to help me load them in your truck and ride over there with me, I can give you a cut of whatever I get for the radiators.

  • Good sledge hammer.

  • some people still want to buy radiators, so consider selling them outright.

    I have radiators and one is still holding together with epoxy, but I would consider buying one if the size fits my application.

    what size height, width, length are the radiators and as far as you know are they in decent shape?

Skunks!

Almost let the dog out AGAIN...into a yard full of skunks. Be careful kids, they're all over.

  • Eileen Dimberg Like our neighborhood people are friendly.

    I'm on the 4100 block of lawndale very worried have several dogs anything I can do to prevent them

  • LadyHawk justdointheright35thward

    Eileen, I would be concerned too. They sell skunk repellents at most hardware stores. Bunnies have nibbled all the leaves off my rose bushes so I chose the direct spray that claims to offend all critters. Here's the link to Home Depot skunk repellent. http://www.homedepot.com/s/skunk+repellent?NCNI-5 .

Anyone missing a dog around Albany Park?

My friend spotted a brownish-red male Pit Bull (no collar) in the alley near Eastwood and Hamlin (near Wilson and Hamlin). He walked away before she could see him/locate him. This was around 1:00pm on Thursday 6/1.

  • Yay! Dog's owner was found. My friend followed him when suddenly the owner showed up. He bolted for her and ran right home. I love happy endings! ❤️

Gun shots

Just heard 6-8 loud reports. Came from berteau and kimball maybe or just east of kimball. It woke me so the round count might be wrong but now I'm hearing the ambulance. Called it in.

  • ward greenleaf Smokey and the Bandit, Hooper, Cannonball Run...

    Bga, check your email

  • Thanks for the info Ward as in one paper they show a van in the alley and in another paper they say it happened on Saint Louis.

Albany Park burglaries...

Unfortunate that the descriptions aren't better...

Also, Lawrence Hall has been a training ground for young residential burglars.

  • George F in Ravenswood displaced New Yorker

    Impossible! That would mean that I would be wrong when I agree with you.

    Ward is very knowledgeable and a good guy to consult with. Among his admirable qualities there is the fact that he doesn't let his verbal opponents on electronic platforms get under his skin and he will never do hilariously pathetic things worth eternal mockery just because someone pokes his last nerve because he is too awesome to even be affected by any kind of provocation. Tantrums are for the weak and sorry. Kudos for Ward and for everyone who has enough going on in life. No need to let others get under one's skin because after all this is just an internet forum. Ideologically Ward and I couldn't be further away as I spend my life campaigning for every Bernie Sanders clone in the EU but I have tremendous respect for him. Finding common grounds when the odds are against us agreeing on anything is our Leitmotiv, the future of the USA.

Looking for home cleaning service

Does anyone have any recommendations for an affordable, trustworthy house cleaner? Thanks in advance!

  • BerkeleyGirl Winnemac Park

    Gingerella - green, pays living wage... I live in a 1,500+ sq. ft. 2-bed/1-bath flat, and my monthly service is usually $75 or $90.
    http://www.gingerellacleaning.com

  • I have a family member who cleans. She's amazing. Most of her clients are from the suburbs so she would love to get some in the area to avoid long travels. She's very dedicated, and does a very good job both with tiny and massive houses. If you're interested, send me an email. I don't just want to publicly post her number. She also doesn't charge hourly but per house, depending on size so she'd come give you an estimate prior to cleaning.

  • I'm flexible and reasonable, call or text me at 773-793-5884.

CVS on Pulaski/Wilson closes Saturday

they've already gotten most of the stuff out. Hooray for yet another empty building on Pulaski between Montrose and Lawrence, /s

  • AlbanyParkMom 14-year resident

    A ridiculous amount of property on Pulaski is for sale, for lease, or vacant. Wonder what the aldermen who share this border (Laurino and Rosa) are doing to encourage development. Probably nothing.

  • Won't affect the aldermen's paychecks, so......
