Crazy Neighbor

An older woman recently moved in around the block. She yells at anyone whose dog uses the bathroom on the lawn area that borders the street and sidewalk, which is outside her window. I understand that this is not her property, the city owns it. Recently she was outside following me and pouring bleach all over the grass. My husband has seen her sprinkling what we hope is only red pepper. None of this has stopped the dogs from using...

An older woman recently moved in around the block. She yells at anyone whose dog uses the bathroom on the lawn area that borders the street and sidewalk, which is outside her window. I understand that this is not her property, the city owns it. Recently she was outside following me and pouring bleach all over the grass. My husband has seen her sprinkling what we hope is only red pepper. None of this has stopped the dogs from using the bathroom on this stretch of grass. All of us dog owners are getting fed up with her harassment and we are worried she is going to start putting poison on the grass. We don't know if we should call the police or what to do. Has anyone been in this situation? Any advice?

  • Pouring bleach on your parkway, doing harm to your own grass just to do serious harm to someone elses pet is the definition of spite. People who behave like this do not have empathy for others and the bond they have with their pet. I am sure no one is intentionally trying to do harm to her parkway, so it's alarming that she is intentionally trying to do harm to animals. Sounds like a crazy lady to me.

    I'd hate to hear what you think "curb your appetite" means.

Petition signatures

I need help getting some petitions signatures for an alderman candidate.

Please let me know if you can help and/or sign it. You can only sign one petition and must be registered to vote in the 43rd ward.

Thanks

  • My volunteer just sent me the link to this post so I've decided to take over the feed. I'm Steven McClellan and I'm collecting signatures to get on the ballot for 43rd ward alderman.

    If you have any questions, feel free to email me anytime at steven.mcclellan@gmail.com.

  • Perhaps you should counsel your volunteer about posting on your behalf without disclaiming they are doing so.

Lola Bastille tonight at Laudi Vidni

I organize a little reception for my friend Elisabeth Berthon, a French designer who will present her brand Lola Bastille for the first time in the US.
A one-of-a-kind opportunity to discover high-end artisanal felt and shop her exclusive handmade line for women, men and girls. A distinctive and unique style, seamless elegant and comfortable clothes which highlight color blending and natural fibers.
Laudi Vidni, the custom leather handbags design studio is generously hosting the event and it's another good reason to come and check their gorgeous bags and leather samples.

  • After a very nice reception yesterday my friend's creations will stay on display at Laudi Vidni during the weekend. She is herself on site today, which is a real bonus because she can tell you all about the materials and different type of wool and techniques she used for each...

    After a very nice reception yesterday my friend's creations will stay on display at Laudi Vidni during the weekend. She is herself on site today, which is a real bonus because she can tell you all about the materials and different type of wool and techniques she used for each piece.

    I already loved her work from the pictures and a couple of clothes I had seen on her in the past. After yesterday's experience, hearing such a positive feedback from our guests, trying on some clothes myself, seeing how beautiful they all looked on people so different by size, style, age, gender, etc., I can truly say today that it is a must-see. Unique, artistic, beautiful, but also easy to wear, warm and comfy!

    In addition to that, Laudi Vidni staff who welcomed us is so sweet and their custom leather handbags are beautiful too, so stop by this weekend, have a mimosa and enjoy!

Best Auto Repair Shop

I just wanted to let everyone know how much I like my auto repair place. Yes, that's right, a compliment, not a complaint. I started visiting Accurate Imports about 20 years ago. Rudy and Robert, two German guys, ran the place at Lincoln and Wrightwood. Several years ago when R&R retired, the workers, Oscar and his team, took over the business. It's now at 4329 W. Addison, a bit beyond Lincoln Park but well worth the drive. They do excellent work, are incredibly honest and have reasonable rates. Today I needed them to pull a screw out of my tire, insert a plug and add air. Total bill - $0.00!! I love these guys.

    Did they place a "plug" through the tire or did they glue a "patch" over the hole from the inside? The proper repair would have been a patch. If they put in a plug, they damaged your tire. A patch would be safer.
