looking for two kittens

I am looking to adopt two kittens, does anyone know anyone who has a litter that is ready to go?

  • ariel elizabeth new to chicago

    And one other thing polonia it isn't wise to tell people how to deal with their children, maybe as I said before, you should wait before replying with advice pertaining to a situation that you seem to have confused with something else. No where on here have I said that I was having a hard time finding a place or that I was having money troubles so...... Still wondering what you're talking about.

Looking for someone to sand and finish my floors.

Hello,
I was wondering if someone can give me some suggestions on a company to sand my floors.
My house is 106 yrs old and this is never been done. It really needs it !!!
Thank you, I appreciate any help and suggestions I will receive.

  • Zudor Flooring. Did my old house and everyone thinks I put in new floors. Highly recommend and the price was right.
    Paul Zudor

  • What is a ballpark figure on the cost to sand/refinish a basic 2 story home? I need to start budgeting so I can get our floors redone in the next few months.

    Our house is 102 years old and the floors are in terrible condition. Do you have to move out while the work is being done? We have a lot of pets and no family in the area, so I'm concerned about how long the process takes.

  • Edward's Flooring did ours. They were fantastic. The floors were perfect and not a speck of dust when they were done. It cost us $1600 for 480 sq feet (3 bedrooms and the upstairs hall) plus the staircase. It took them 3 days. We had no furniture in the house since we had just closed so I don't know how they handle that.

Community Conversation on Racism at Irving Park United Methodist

Sun, Sep 7, 2014 3:00 pm

Everyone is welcome to come and participate in a conversation on racism with a focus on "What we can do." This will be held on Sunday, September 7 at 3:00 pm at Irving Park United Methodist Church, located on the corner of Grace and Keeler. A panel will present views and respond to comments and questions from the audience. We hope that this will help raise some issues that are sometime beneath our radars and encourage better understanding and advocacy.

  • Katherine Pastor, Irving Park United Methodist Church

    We have a number of community and religious leaders on the panel. I have asked each of them to share one story of experiencing racism either directly or through a friend. Together we will share ideas on how we can change the landscape of racism in our community. This issue is one of great concern for many of us, and our focus will be on how we can make a positive impact together.
