Strongly advise AGAINST going to Grooming Parlor on Elston.

STRONGLY ADVISE AGAINST GOING HERE: I've taken my dog before when she was 1 to get the full works. Paid full price but the groomer refused to clean her teeth telling me next time....yet he didn't discount me anything for not doing it. Well this past Saturday April 28th I wanted to treat my American Pit Bull Terrier for a Groom. I called to recheck the prices. Man speaking spanish answered the phone. I understand and speak fluently so continued...

STRONGLY ADVISE AGAINST GOING HERE: I've taken my dog before when she was 1 to get the full works. Paid full price but the groomer refused to clean her teeth telling me next time....yet he didn't discount me anything for not doing it. Well this past Saturday April 28th I wanted to treat my American Pit Bull Terrier for a Groom. I called to recheck the prices. Man speaking spanish answered the phone. I understand and speak fluently so continued to ask my questions. How much for grooming? He responds by saying depends on the breed and size. I don't care how much it cost just thought it was a good place to go because its close to my home. I tell him I have a pit. He tells me if my dog has been there before and how long ago. I responded that I took her to that location about a year ago. His response was so unprofessional. He tells me why do you people take so long to bring the dog don't you know they get crazy. Wow! First of all my dog is very humble I bathe her or my daughter who is a skinny 11 year old. She is calm when being taken a bath. How dare they judge me or my dog without even looking at her. How dare them call themself Dog groomers if they are so prejudice? Yes I said no thank you and hung up! I strongly encourage those to go to other places Petsmart takes better care of dogs than these people!

Old Gas

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to dispose of old gasoline?

  • Mj

    If it's a small amount add it to full tank of gas in your car. It would be so diluted that it would cause no harm.

  • :). Please use the dropoff center

Lost Cat-please help!

We just moved into the neighborhood at N Wisner and Kimball (close to Diversey, and kimball) and our cat got out last night. He's a big, black and white tuxedo cat. Black body with white chest and white on his nose. He's pretty fat and his name is Gizmo. He has a blue collar with a tag with his name and my number. Please, please call me if you find him. 312-545-9331 reward if found. He's my baby and I am just devastated.

  • Yea! So glad he is home safe and welcome to the neighborhood! It's great that he has a collar and tag, but sometimes they come off. You may want to look into getting him microchipped and register your current contact info.

  • Yay for good news!!!

Free Moving Boxes

We have a ton of moving boxes. They were used once and still in great condition. Message me to arrange to pick them up.

  • Send me a private message or text me at 312-772-5539 to arrange picking them up. I have about 50 boxes, enough to go around. But, I would like to get rid of them all today.

  • Someone just took the last boxes. I didn't expect them to go so fast.

Shooting Drake and Lyndale

Does anyone have any info on what happened last night around 2 am on the corner of Drake and Lyndale. We woke up to what sounded like several gunshots and police cars...

  • Mark L Logan Square homeowner

    My wife says she heard shots too (we are across from the YMCA) but neither of us know what happened.

  • any such name live, walk, & cook in logan square

    I live right there and was woken up from a dead sleep a little after 12am (probably 12:10 or 12:15); I have been working insane hours so was very disoriented and had no idea what I'd heard, I assumed it was a car crash. But it definitely was not at 2am, it was a couple hours earlier.

  • Thanks I have a family member that works for CPD I asked them to look into it. I'll keep you posted.

  • This is just the federal gun charge and I believe he has to serve 80% of that sentence. He is also charged in Cook County, so hopefully they can put him away for even longer.

Where do you buy your flowers?

It's ALMOST flower season and I need a ton of flowers. Any suggestions on where I can go for affordable flowers that won't kill the bees?

    Farmers Market on Elston not only has a large, healthy selection but a knowledgable staff. They can answer any questions you have about the plants, bushes or trees they sell.

  • I called Burpee’s customer service on 03-30-16 and they verified via phone that they do NOT treat their seeds and plants with any pesticides - they do NOT use Neonicitinoids.
    Yay!

    re Non-GMO policy - https://www.burpee.com/gardenadvicecenter/about/gmo-policy/nongmo-policy.html

    from Burpee customer service via email -

    “We do not treat our seeds with neonicotinoid pesticides or any pesticides; they are milled, washed, dried, and packaged. If you are concerned about the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers in the production of our seed, we recommend using our organic seed found at http://www.burpee.com/organic-gardening/. All of our organic seeds are produced from plants that have not been treated with any synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, and all of Burpee's organic seeds have been certified organic by the Oregon Tilth (Oregon Tilth Homepage)

    “With regards to our plants, we use integrated pest management in our greenhouses and only apply pesticides according to the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture rules for pesticide application.  We make every effort in our production methods to not harm bees.

    “Burpee is the nation's leading purveyor of both heirloom and hybrid vegetables seeds and transplants. Burpee purchases seeds from a select list of suppliers throughout the world including Seminis. However, none of the seeds purchased from Seminis or any other supplier are GMO. Burpee has never bred or sold GMO seeds and does not intend to do so in the future.”

    Not sure exactly what "integrated pest management" means and I think it's a term that is meant to be vague and sortof much-encompassing. I think it means they try everything else before using any chemical pesticides on their plants.
