  • Hey Helen thanks for getting back to me really appreciate it.
    We heard from a friend that there was no food last night so we decided to wait for today. Hope everyone has a good time!

    Right, the food tents weren't open last night, but there was plenty of food inside. We went to the alderman's Follow Me on Friday at Empirical Brew Pub then stuck around and ordered food. Great place. Check it out if you haven't been there yet.

My garage was broken into 6:30am this morning (Saturday) - 6600 block of N Glenwood (alley between Glenwood and Newgard). Guy got in through a window and rummaged around - went through glove compartment in car and through couple of bags.Nothing of note taken. Neighbor heard the noise and shouted and guy jumped the fence and ran south down the alley. Description of the guy is black male,slim,about 6ft tall wearing grey hoodie (that was pulled over face so couldn't get face or age description) and long pair of jeans. He opened a bottle of tonic water I had in the garage and drank from it. I told the police this when I filed the report thinking maybe they could get DNA and see who the guy is.....but they were not interested in this.

    And come to think of it, had Bill in Rogers Park run into the crook in his garage and the crook had a gun, this could have had a different ending. Then I'm sure the Police would have been all over the bottle of tonic. At least he filed the police report, reported it etc which is more than I can say for the people who say "did anyone hear gun shots" and don't call 911.

    We seem to have spate of car and Garage break-ins in the neighborhood. This week in alley behind me I found envelope with car registration info,etc. I called the number found in the envelope and it was a cab driver who said his car had been broken into this week on the 1400 block of Arthur. Another neighbor in 1300 block of Albion said she saw 6ft, AfricanAmerican late teen early 20s wearing red and yellow hoodie checking out cars in middle of weekday afternoon. She lost sight of him and then saw him ransacking Neighbor's car. Police called but offender got away. And one additional note from my original post: Chicago Police detective did follow-up with me re my break-in. No suspect yet. So if you see guys checking out cars on the street and looking inside the vehicles, testing doors, etc. call 911 to get police presence.

Fatal bacteria found in stagnant puddles

In June, I posted about a lost dog and received many kind comments from EB readers. We eventually located the original owner who had adopted the dog from Chicago Animal Care and Control but who had been forced to give the dog away when moving to a rental home that would not allow dogs. The dog was subsequently lost and I could not track down its most recent owner. We fell in love with the dog and decided to keep...

In June, I posted about a lost dog and received many kind comments from EB readers. We eventually located the original owner who had adopted the dog from Chicago Animal Care and Control but who had been forced to give the dog away when moving to a rental home that would not allow dogs. The dog was subsequently lost and I could not track down its most recent owner. We fell in love with the dog and decided to keep it. According to the original owner, his name was Cody and he was about to turn two in August.

Two weeks ago, Cody became very lethargic and lost his appetite. We took him to the vet the next day when we realized that he was not just under the weather. He went to the vet on Tuesday, was admitted for tests and died of acute liver and kidney failure overnight on Friday. By Monday, lab results had all been returned with the confirmation that Cody died of leptospirosis.

I am posting this because leptospirosis is a bacteria that is passed in the urine of an infected dog (or rodent) into puddles and then the puddle water is drunk by another animal. The incubation period can vary from several days to several weeks. We will never know if Cody drank from an infected puddle while he was lost and on the street, or if he got it from a wading pool at a dog park. We just want to make sure that dog owners are careful to make sure your pet does not drink from puddles when outside.

Vets are seeing a spike in lepto cases in Chicago, possibly because of the rise in the rat population. It should be noted that, while it is exceptionally rare, lepto can be picked up by little kids who play in puddles with infected water and then put their hands into their mouths. Cody was a great dog and we miss him, but more importantly, we want to be sure that other people don't lose their pets as well.

Anyone know what's going on? Sounds like loud military planes are flying overhead.

Please don't say it has something to do with Trump.
