Internet options

I have Direct TV and am considering using their internet option also. Has anyone used them? I have DSL right now with AT&T and am not happy at all. thanks in advance

  • I had AT&T for years and was really unhappy. A couple of months ago I switched to Xfinity and it is awesome service. Consistent and even cheaper than AT&T - you will love it!!

  • I have to say, I've been eyeing Xfinity's new "Internet Plus" service, and it's tempting for someone who wants HBO. It looks like after the $40/month one-year introduction period Internet Plus would cost around $70 a month. But I'm already paying $52 for broadband through AT&T, so Xfinity's broadband plus...

    I have to say, I've been eyeing Xfinity's new "Internet Plus" service, and it's tempting for someone who wants HBO. It looks like after the $40/month one-year introduction period Internet Plus would cost around $70 a month. But I'm already paying $52 for broadband through AT&T, so Xfinity's broadband plus HBO for an additional $20/month is not a bad deal--plus, it includes the basic cable lineup, which means I'd also get broadcast tv without the minor hassles of weather/reception issues that I experience over the air. Hate the idea of subscribing to Comcast, though. And ATT broadband through Uverse has been working well for me, no service issues.

Cat seen at Glenwood and Early

Came across this cat tonight. Super sweet and affectionate. She seemed very comfortable outdoors so we let her go on her way, but I just wanted to check to see if anyone was looking for her.

  • People think its ok to let their Cat roam free. Its not. You live in an Urban environment. EB is chock full of these silly postings. "My baby is lost", "Who Cat is this"....irresponsible owners doing irresponsible things.

    Question: Why did you get a pet if your just going to let it roam outside freely doing it business in other peoples lawns, getting fed by others, killed by others, chased by others, and who know what by others?

  • rogerparker: While I agree that anyone letting their cat outside should be ready for the possibility that the cat may not come back one day and I have never let my housecats run outside...

    Tree House cat shelter has a program allowing people to adopt stray feral cats. Feral cats deter rats and are a health element of any urban ecosystem.

Chicago Ethnic Food Tours Focus in Uptown and Andersonville

Having lived in Edgewater for several years and dining in both Uptown and Andersonville, I thought I knew a lot about our local eateries, bars, ethnic grocery gems, neighborhood symbols and historical roots. But on my recent trip with Phyllis Petrilli of the Chicago Ethnic Food Tours, I realized I knew very little of my neighborhood and […]

Flower store

Does anyone know why the flower store closed?

  • If it the place that I am thinking of, I think the owner may have retired or something. Again, I maybe be thinking of another florist, but this was located on Bryn Mawr just east of the L and on the north side of the street. I hope things are treating him well!

Bravo Broadway Bike Lane

Haven't been on my bike for about 4 YEARS -- I went on a short ride today and was so happy about the bike lane on Broadway (around Wilson Avenue). A short stretch that made me feel so safe ... I hope more streets have been rebuilt this way.

Is there a map or something that shows which streets have been revamped for bike commuters?

Awning over the side door of my Georgian brick house is falling off...

I never thought of shaking snow off the awning over my side door and the snowfall last winter brought part of it down. It is hanging on by a thread. I worry that it will fall on my head or children's head this winter.

Know anyone who repairs these things? Looks like some huge bolts came out of the brick too .. I don't even know where to begin this project.

  • Seth Captain Real estate agent with a Conscience & a Lollipop

    This is the website to a guy I know that makes a variety of awnings. Extremely reliable and professional, and honest. Not sure if he does repairs, but worth calling to get some info or direction: His name is Michael, site: arkelproducts.us

  • Thank you Captain Seth. I had a new red awning installed. Michael@ arkelproducts.us was very kind and very professional. Thank you for the recommendation.

What Can I Do?

I Have Called 24th District On Several Occasions About My Down Stairs Neighbor Having The Building Smell Like Marijuana. I Explain That There Is Kids And Families Who Live In The Building. 24th District Always Tells Me Somebody Will Be There In 15 Minutes & No One Ever Shows Up. It Occasionally Smells Like They Are Smoking & Growing It. And They Still Do Nothing! I Wanted To Know What Else I Could Do In Order To Get Someone Here When There Is A Arroma Of Marijuana In The Air.

    I wonder what is going to happen when marijuana is officially up and running as a legalized form of medication. I was watching a news show and unfortunately only caught the last few minutes but they were talking about all the money that Colorado was making from this industry. Think of all the people who are filling our jails for a joint and costing tax payers major money. I say make it a taxable source of revenue that this money starved state can use and learn from the states that have already gone the way of legalizing it. Marijuana is similar to alcohol in my opinion where as people should not drive, work or do similar activities that you can't do when drinking. But when at home relaxing, or at the beach (yes, I know, no smoking at the beach…I'm a rebel) people should be able to use responsibly. Far less violent crimes with marijuana than alcohol. I think Illinois is giving it a 3 year trial…am I correct? I could be totally wrong. With every state doing something differently, it is hard to keep track.

Hey Edgeville, Have You Had your Greens Today?

As cliché as it sounds with KALE being ‘the new black’, consuming daily greens is an easy way to improve your overall health. Dark leafy greens are responsible for a wide array of health benefits such as purifying blood, preventing cancer, improving circulation, strengthening your immune system and improved liver, gall bladder and kidney function. […]

  • I Had To Say It Reality does not equal negativity.

    Funny, 6 years ago nobody on this entire north side lake front even knew what kale was. I needed some for a recipe and had to drive to the suburbs to get it. I did find it in one store here but it was yellow. Next thing ya know yo-yos will be all the rage again.

Everyblock vs Nextdoor in Edgewater

I have my favorite but would like to hear what peeps up in Edgewater think.

If you could only use one, which would you choose? ...and why? Which do you find to be more informative, to have better features, community outreach, support etc? ...or is there another social neighborhood network you prefer to use? ie Facebook, Yahoo Groups, Foursquare

To help compare, i put together a chart:
http://w11.zetaboards.com/InsideNextdoor/topic/10057749/2/#new

For those who are not familiar with ND, but curious, here's an invite link:
https://nextdoor.com/invite/uncptzzbfxscgxxppmuw

  • ScottPhillips Long time RP resident

    Next door seems less crazy and far more civilized. I assume it is because they don't allow people to use fake names or have multiple user accounts.

  • ScottPhillips Long time RP resident

    And the great majority of its content seems to be the alderman's promotional blasts. Then again, it is election season.

Bike Stolen from Garage

Hey all... just a heads up that our bike (red Fuji) was stolen this past weekend from our garage (Ardmore / Glenwood) The bike was hung on a rack and secured with a bike lock which they simply cut - and nicely left at the scene. Oddly, nothing else in the garage was taken.
Just a heads up that stolen bikes seem to be on the rise in our hood.

  • Sandy in EdgeGlen EdgeGlen since 1987

    After having two bikes, two snowblowers and assorted garden equipment stolen from our garage (not to mention our car broken into), we “bit the bullet” four years ago and not only installed deadbolt locks on our alley gate and garage side access door but also large tempered brass strike plates...

    After having two bikes, two snowblowers and assorted garden equipment stolen from our garage (not to mention our car broken into), we “bit the bullet” four years ago and not only installed deadbolt locks on our alley gate and garage side access door but also large tempered brass strike plates and guards for both locks. No thefts from our garage since. But we’re also thinking of adding burglar bars over the garage window. (Sadly, nothing we can do about squirrels stealing our backyard tomatoes or rabbits helping themselves to our herbs).

…And the kitchen sink

Anybody out there know of someone who is able to remove a kitchen sink from a countertop and then reinstall the sink when a new countertop is intalled? I am on a kinda tight budget, but not a bad job kinda budget, rather an easy job kinda budget. I am way over my kitchen remodel budget as it is and this is an unforeseen expense. Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

Home Remodeling Referrals

Hi-
I'm seeking a recycle place where I can buy 2 1/4" wide (probably oak) wood flooring to install in my kitchen to match the original throughout the rest of my 1920's co-op.
Also, does anybody know a good precision tile installer of large (25 1/4" x 12 1/2") rectified tile? It has super smooth edges that butt together with a tiny grout line. I'm using it for a new kitchen countertop.
Thx!
