Coyote in the Hood

Hey everyone. Just wanted to mention that I saw a pretty big coyote at 7am. He was in the alley between Paulina and Hermitage at the 4400 block. He wasn't looking for trouble with us (me and 2 large dogs), but he was just behind a neighbors house, who I think has chickens...Just a heads up.

    Total b.s./urban legend that started circulating after the news reported on that coyote photographed running down the middle of State Street over 4 years ago. The city has nothing to do with tracking coyotes and they most definitely have no program designed to use them as vermin catchers.

Før hopping i, bør rådgivere og klienter gjøre noen lekser på disse vanskelige investeringer.

ETF som utnytter ytelse er fortsatt holdt i forakt av mange personer i finansnæringen. Vanligvis er det fordi de indivduals ikke forstår produktene eller de ikke forstår hvordan og hvor innflytelse tilhører portefølje konstruksjon.

Før rådgiver forsøker å bruke leveraged ETFs inne klient porteføljer, er det avgjørende å ha en logiske rammen.

Bare etter rådgiver først har bygget en persons kjernen portefølje kan prosessen med å konstruere taktiske eller ikke-kjernevirksomhet porteføljen begynner. Husk, kjernen opprettholder eksponering for alle store aktivaklasser (aksjer, obligasjoner, råvarer og eiendom) til enhver tid. Det bare taktisk kjernen porteføljen noensinne vil gjøre er å ringe opp eller ned en persons eksponering for en bestemt aktivaklasse.

Sammenligning ikke-kjernevirksomhet porteføljen er taktisk og kan investere i ting som enkeltaksjer, derivater, private equity, venture kapital, volatilitet og andre ikke-kjernevirksomhet aktivaklasser. Siden ikke-kjernevirksomhet porteføljen er alltid gratis til kjernen, er det vanligvis mindre i størrelse og kan også holde taktisk designet eiendeler som utnyttes lang eller kort ETFs.

Vintage Linen Repair Needed

I have an embroidered tablecloth from my mom that is about 50 years old. It has a few medium-size tears/holes that are not on a seam. I have no idea how to repair this or if it's even possible to do so. It is beautiful and very sentimental. Do any of you know of someone who might be able to help? Thanks so much in advance.

Looking for a short-term dogsitter

My wife and I are seeking someone to stop by our place to keep an eye on and tend to our 13-week old Morkie puppy. He's not quite used to being by himself all day, and unfortunately we need to be away.

Date: At least March 10-12, maybe a few more days on either side
Time: At least 5-6 hours/day
Where: Near Ravenswood and Wilson
Tasks: Keep an eye on him while he's in his pen; play with him; clean up after him; keep him fed; usual puppy stuff.

Just let us know a little about your background and your rates to chicodes101@gmail.com. Thanks!

    By the way, my dogs have included a Maltese (Silly Willy), Dalmatian (Siri Kit Mendosa), Cockapoo ("Bongar" for "bon garcon" - French for "good boy"), Spanish black Cocker Spaniel (the ancient kingdom of Nubia, ), and my last buddy but recently deceased at the age of fifteen, my English Springer Spaniel ( Gabriel the Good). They all lived healthy, happy and long lives. Thank goodness for these darlings who give so much back to us and ask nothing in return.

LOST KEYS....

Walked on the east side of 4800 block of Ashland yesterday between 12noon and 5pm, Wed. 3-25-14 and lost a set of keys. Did anyone find some? Can you please contact me here on EveryBlock?
Thanks for your help,

Also was at the bus stops:
Lawrence just west of Ashland, north side of street.
Lawrence at Western heading back east.

Walked to Brown line from Lawrence.

And then (Ugh!) downtown.
I've called CTA and Brown line stations.
.... probably hopeless... hoping for that amazing miracle...

  • Lynda Bean Long-time resident.

    Thanks Patrick and Rachel for the moral support. Miracles happen... keys have been found! I'm so relieved... I didn't post a lot of info about what was on the set to protect myself from an unlikely hero. If people found keys I figured they'd want me to ID the set... I would've wanted them to ID something specific to me so I could verify they actually had them.

    Thanks again. Grateful for this forum.

  • You know how when you get replacement insurance cards there's always some blank plastic around them? Cut an oval, use a sharpie to put your number on either side, seal it up with clear packing tape so the marker doesn't run, and hole punch a hole. Viola, instant ID fob....

    I've been doing this for years, I've never had to take advantage of it but after losing a set years ago I got proactive and that plastic around your insurance cards is perfect for making a little tag similar to a store loyalty card - only for loyalty to you. Plus, murphy's law states clearly that you will only lose your keys if there is no identification on them, putting a tag with your phone number on them insures them against getting lost. ;)
