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.

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?

    Can dog walkers read? The "curb your dog" signs mean that your dog needs to urinate and defecate in the street next to the CURB. Then no grass or flowers are killed, the rain washes away the urine traces into the gutter, and people only have to look in one place to avoid stepping in the dog feces you have not picked up-as you should. This is common practice in Europe, so I do not believe it is cruel to the dogs. People who want to maintain their plants help us all as plants take in carbon dioxide and emit oxygen, which helps the environment. People who pollute others property, either themselves or with their dogs are rude and unneighborly.

  • Unfortunately the phrase "curb your dog" can be interpreted in multiple ways. Does it mean the more general "restrain or keep your dog in check" as it does its business or the more specific "lead your dog to the edge of the street to urinate or defecate?" Neighbors will debate...

    Unfortunately the phrase "curb your dog" can be interpreted in multiple ways. Does it mean the more general "restrain or keep your dog in check" as it does its business or the more specific "lead your dog to the edge of the street to urinate or defecate?" Neighbors will debate this endlessly.

    In practice I've found that you can lead a dog to a curb, but you can't make it pee or poop there. In the city the curb can be a tight and sometimes dangerous place. Also, dogs often need a whiff of a plant (or another dog) for some motivation. My rule is I don't let my dog go anywhere that a neighbor seems to be keeping up the area. Weedy, dirt-covered, uneven plots along the public way are fair game. Even then, sometimes your dog just goes where he/she wants and you have to adjust as best one can. Regardless, picking up poop afterwards is a must. No ifs, and or butts, er, I mean buts.

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 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.

  • Bob

    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.
