  • catlady for the love of cats, lets get along!

    And this is why i rather keep taking a Taxi cab over any Uber drivers!

  • CGF

    Taxi's are no safer. Predators are not exclusive to one brand of transportation. If you think taxi drivers are safer I'll introduce you to friends attacked/assaulted in taxis by taxi drivers..

    I doubt if an employee of your favorite grocery store or retailer assaulted someone you would boycott that employer.

    No intention to diminish the magnitude of these crimes. Just focusing my point of view on the perpetrator not an employer.

  • catlady for the love of cats, lets get along!

    Your right CGF predators are not exclusive to one brand of transportation.But i have yet to see continuous news on taxi drivers assaulting passengers. I have seen MULTIPLE reports on uber drivers assaulting passengers.

    Where You Can Buy A Christmas Tree In Chicago (MAP)
    CHICAGO - The holidays are here. Here's a map and list of lots where you can buy Christmas trees, wreaths and other festive foliage for the season. Most of these locations, alphabetized by neighborhood, will be open for the year by Nov. 25, the day after Thanksgiving.

  • PLSS Bowmanville

    I would love to support local but my Home Depot trees are around $35 for a 6'-7' blue spruce and live forever. I recently heard that the Christmas tree Miracle-Gro additive is amazing, I plan to pick some up this year.

  • Helen R Portage Park resident since 1983

    I was very pleased with my tree from Meinke's. I've also had some luck at Menard's and Home Depot, but that's hit or miss. Why not make a day of it and go out to cut your own?
