    I lived down south a stretch, Chicago and Uptown are in a vein or two the most northenly of southern places.

    "Pan American"

    I have heard your stories about your fast trains

    But now I'll tell you about one all the southern folks have seen

    She's the beauty of the southlands listen to that whistle scream

    It's that Pan American on her way to New Or-leans.

    The Cambodian Association of Illinois celebrates 40 years by looking ahead
    As a young Buddhist monk in Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia, during the 1960s, Kompha Seth studied the Brahmi alphabet and Magadhi-a root language of modern Khmer-which had been preserved and passed down for generations. Today, he's one of only a few Cambodians in the world who understands these dialects and their links to modern Khmer.

Anyone have moving boxes?

I see posts every once and a while where people are trying to get rid of moving boxes. I am moving in the weeks to come and I thought I'd check here before I go out and buy some.

Is anyone looking to get rid of moving boxes (that are in good condition)?

I appreciate you!
Thanks!

  • Hey,

    I have a few actual moving boxes, including two really big garment boxes in perfect shape. If you still need some, let me know and we'll work out the details. Cheers

  • Hi! Thank you everyone your suggestions. And cc1492 I would love to come by and take them off your hands! Thank you
