Long Shot, But Anyone Have Rush LP's To Sell?

I realize this is a long shot, but is there anyone out there that may have some Rush (the band from Canada) records lying around they want to sell?

I'm working on a collection and would be interested in albums or singles. I do have a bunch of their stuff already, but want to have a playing copy and a backup copy of what I can.

Let me know if you have some you would like to sell!

    If you Fly By Night, be careful.

  • Ooh. I wanna come back on that one, but I'm afraid it would turn into me trying every title of every song and album. Ok, keeping it simple:

    I won't go slow as I Fly By Night; I will Rush.

Grandma J's, Previously Hit With Anti-Gentrification Tag, Broken Into Again

Malia said she has no plans to change the way she operates her restaurant at 1552 N. Kedzie Ave. She was open for business at 9 a.m. Thursday.

    Grandma J's, Previously Hit With Anti-Gentrification Tag, Broken Into Again
    HUMBOLDT PARK - For the second time this year, vandals broke into Grandma J's Local Kitchen in Humboldt Park. It's unclear if there is any connection to previous anti-gentrification vandalism at the independently owned restaurant. In June, a few weeks after the shop was tagged with anti-gentrification messages, someone threw a brick through the restaurant's window and robbed the business of $200 in cash.

  • CPL949 HP Resident now; WP/Uk Village; total 30 yrs.

    While burglar gates may be indicative of a bad area, for right now, Grandma J's needs some protection. The gates are much cheaper than continually replacing the glass. I'm sure she doesn't have that much money.

  • Maybe the Alderman could help her get a SBIF grant or some other type of free money that a lot of other local businesses get. She could use some cameras to deter theft. Took a buddy from London there and he loved it. I need to go back.

Any neighborhood chicken keepers want to add 2 hens to your flock?

I have re home my 2 hens after a long summer of not getting along, i can no longer keep the 2 separated with the winter cold. They need to be a part of a bigger flock and i am unable to provide it in my backyard right now. They are loved pets and it is really hard to come to this conclusion but i think its the best for them. They are friendly and fine with my dogs and my baby son. Please let me know if anyone is looking for a few good hens. they are about 3 yrs old. They still lay from about march - october. No soup pots please!

Division Street decorations?

Drove down Division earlier today and noticed how nice it looks with the winter decorations up. How come west of Western has no decorations? It looks so run down. Who do we talk to regarding our own winter decorations?

Why do people sit in their cars in the parks (Garfield, Humboldt, etc)?

After taking a walk in the parks, I noticed that most of the cars have people sitting in them. Why is this? What are they doing?

  • My God Pendragon, I'm so sorry you have that miserable of a life that you have to delete other people's post so you can feel better about yourself. I hope it gets better so you can stop show casing the misery of what you call a life, but if not, you can always just delete this post also, just another affirmation to what us the fulfilling life people call desperately pathetic.

  • Pendragon dragon king

    Must have been you that was deleted? LOL I actually had no idea what the comments were, but it shows they were deleted. You must have been on fire last night!! Frustrated a little? There's a few cures for that frustration. :)
