    Lawrence House | Historic Preservation | moss Design
    The Lawrence House, a stunning showcase of historic preservation, is now mostly open to tenants. Formerly a residential hotel in the '20s, the roost of cosmopolitans who were seldom home, the Lawrence House later became a retirement hotel (fun fact, my grandma lived there for a time).

    "Mr Plastic is a design engineer"

    Mr. Plastic could tell us he's a rainbow pooping unicorn, that doesn't mean it's true just because Mr. Plastic says it is. Maybe Mr. Plastic doesn't live Edgewater and doesn't drive a shiny new car at all. Maybe Mr. Plastic lives in Rogers Park studio and drives an '83 corolla. No real way to tell.

    Men Charged With Robbing Women Walking Alone In Lakeview, Police Say
    CHICAGO - Two men have been charged with robbing women walking alone in Lakeview, police said. In two robberies early Saturday, the men saw a woman who was walking alone and used a car to block her path once she came to an alley, according to a Chicago Police news release.

  • Cubbyguy Landlord and Tax Consultant

    Glad they were caught, it appears as if women walking alone are easy prey. My wife was also a victim last year. We all need to be more vigilant and walk in pairs or carry defense mechanisms if alone. My wife's robber was also caught.

    If your looking to save some money, Menards has great trees for a really good prices. We bought 2 trees last night, one 8-9 foot for us and one 6-7 foot for our elderly aunt who lives upstairs from us. Both Frasier Furs although they had about 3 different other kinds. In total we spent $75 on 2 beautiful trees. No, unfortunately the $ doesn't support a school or a noble purpose, it just keeps more $ in your pocket book that creates opportunity for you to then support a worthy cause :)

  • For cut your own tree...We used to go to Richardsons Xmas Tree Farm in Spring Grove...They also have a barn with misc. ornaments, fresh donuts, coffee and cider...Great if you have kids !
