Suggestions for a 2 year old/ classes/ activities thank you

Hello,

I am new to the neighborhood and I'm having a hard time finding activities for my toddler. We do go to the Old town school of music for an occasional class but was wondering if there's any other ones around. Yelp is not helping me at the moment. Any suggestions would be appreciated? Thank you :)

  • Aquababies and Galter Center. Great classes.

  • I second Aquababies. I also tried "playschool" with Park District, but sometimes cheap means you get what you pay for (which in this case was not great) --but also took a soccer class at Welles Park, which was good although funny/chaotic, but like another poster said, if you aren't online...

Have also heard that Peterson Park gymnastics is very good. I signed up for 2 classes at OTSOFM: Wiggleworms and Scribbles. Scribbles was a HUGE hit, Wiggleworms, eh, not so much.

Found: chubby orange housecat

This cat was hanging out on the sidewalk in front of 4447 N Wolcott. It was very friendly, well fed and didn't seem like an outside cat. I couldn't take it in so he's still outside. It went into the gated alley next to the building so I'm hoping it knows how to stay safe. It was cold but seemed ok for now.

  • Is she meeting us at Spacca?

  • She does what she wants. I'll suggest it but she'll probably only go if she can bring the rest of her gang. Will there be tuna?

Lost cat: Approx 10-year-old male short hair tabby

Hi,

My family's cat has been missing since some point on Saturday. Unfortunately we were out and about most of the weekend until late Sunday so he didn't have opportunity to come inside. He was last seen around Whipple-Albany and Sunnyside.

He's an extremely friendly male cat, brown-black tabby with black stripes. He has a distinguishing mole on his nose. He is known to approach strangers and purr and meow a lot, so I am wondering if a neighbor may have taken him in. He's also fairly skinny but overall in good health.

Thanks for any help.

Curb your dog...

Now that the snow is melting, it's becoming more obvious that *some* dog owners really didn't want to take the time to clean up after their dogs. I understand that it has been a cold and snowy winter, but it shouldn't change your level of responsibility as respectable owners.

Now that the snow is melting, it's becoming more obvious that *some* dog owners really didn't want to take the time to clean up after their dogs. I understand that it has been a cold and snowy winter, but it shouldn't change your level of responsibility as respectable owners. It is bad enough that at the end of the sidewalk leading out of building complexes is the landing strip for all of the dog urine in the world, but I could look past that if the steaming piles were removed.

The area in particular that I'm referring to is on Wolcott, north of Montrose, south of Sunnyside on the east side of the road. There are probably a dozen big dog turds laying on the snow and even one on the sidewalk. Some new, some old and crusty. It's disgusting. If I had small children, I'd be pissed as these are not "road verges"(?) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Road_verge) that I'd want my kids walking on or playing on.

It is at the point where the next nice day I'm going to go out there and clean it up myself. I'm just sick of seeing it.

Truck Break-In on 4300 Block of Campbell

Hey neighbors, I heard two loud thumps and then a car alarm go off at midnight last night. I looked out the window and saw that a truck parked on Campbell between Montrose and Pensacola was broken into. The alarm went off for several minutes. I did not see the perpetrators, but I do know it took place at midnight. This morning I saw that the passenger window was smashed. This is the first break-in that i have noticed since moving to the neighborhood this summer.

Eyebrow Threading

Are there any good eyebrow threading places around Lincoln Square/Ravenswood? I used to go to a great lady down in Lakeview, but I just can't get there as easily anymore and my eyebrows look a little scary!! Alternatively, someone who gives a quality wax would also work - basically I need these caterpillars off my face. :) Thanks.

  • Neighborly1~ Values community.

    To people who get their eyebrows threaded: are they able to shape and arch them carefully if they thread them? Thanks.

  • Yep. They shape just as well if not better than waxing. And for me, having sensitive skin, I don't look red for more than an hour. With waxing, my skin would be red for almost a week!

På et bestemt tidspunkt i en persons liv opnår en person en levelof kompetence og uafhængighed i social, økonomisk eller følelsesmæssig vilkår. De fleste mennesker bosætte sig i et familie liv med den nødvendige beskæftigelse forbindelse og socialt netværk, der giver mulighed for mere vækst i alle aspekter af ens livsstil. Der vil altid være begrænsninger i et par eller flere af de roller vi, som individer forventes at tage. Og der er dem blandt os, der kan have brug for omsorgsfuld opmærksomhed i orden for dem til fuldt funktion i samfundet.

Corliss gruppe har taget store anstrengelser i at levere sådanne tjenester til disse personer med specialiserede behov. Derfor, bortset fra at levere træning i dag-centre i Warren, RI, det også har et bolig Program for dem, der ønsker at udtrykke deres egen uafhængighed. Corliss giver disse personer den støtte, de har brug for med hensyn til "personlig pleje, shopping, rengøring, Tøjvask, madlavning, socialisering og penge forvaltning." Disse personer er "opfordres til at leve uafhængigt og opretholde deres egen lejlighed" og at blive involveret i EU-at-large.

Dette er absolut et hak højere end dem, der kræver mere tilsyn eller pleje i opstilling af væsentlige aktiviteter i dagligdagen. Disse er de mennesker, der ikke kun har erhvervet af færdigheder og tillid til at blive indkomster men også have evner til at udtrykke sig på andre områder såsom kunst, musik, sport og andre meningsfulde aktiviteter.

Male tuxedo kitty, all black on top, white belly and paws. Seems quite young. See attached pic. Not micro-chipped and appears to be in excellent health. Very perplexed as to why this guy is not micro-chipped as he appears to be someone's loving pet.

Extremely well socialized with people, playful and not fearful at all. Did not appear to be an indoor/outdoor kitty as he did not seem familiar with cars, traffic or the outside world. Will be turning over to rescue group for proper adoption procedure if owners are not located by end of the week. He will be an extremely good find for someone looking to adopt a young male who is quite outgoing, well-behaved and friendly. Am re-posting this to various neighborhood sites, Chicago lost pet FB pages, etc.

If you believe this is your cat, please call #773-822-1700 and leave a message with call back number and email. You will be asked to provide proof of ownership and photos.

Thank you. - Heather

Lost Quadcopter

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? Is this legal what she is doing?

Has anyone heard how the pastry chef from Beans n Bagels is doing now? I heard there would be a kickstarter campaign to help him while he's out of work because he was injured. But I never heard any more about that. Has anyone heard anything about how he is or about raising money to help him?

Graffit and the cure?!?

I seem to have ended the graffiti that has plagued my building at Wilson and Wolcott .
( over 400 times this has happened!) I went to Sherwin Williams Paint Co. and ordered their anti-graffiti covering. If you are having a similar problem this might be the solution. It is quite pricey, About $105.00 per gallon. Your surface needs to be cleaned by the "Graffiti Buster" first before you apply the covering. My piece of mind was worth the cost. I will up-date you if I see this hasn't worked, but for now we are golden! YEAH!

  • The Crusty Pirate Old crotchety pirate captain (retired)

    Another possible solution could be 'green walls'

    http://goo.gl/ltX9DG <-- green walls google image search

    The paint is intriguing though... i may use it in conjunction with 'green walls'.

  • The Crusty Pirate Old crotchety pirate captain (retired)

    I'm inclined to think that any surface that doesn't present itself as a clean flat canvas would deter an aspiring 'artist'.

    It would be an interesting hypothesis to test - using flat surfaces (control), corrugated surfaces, vegetated surface (green walls), open slatted surfaces, surface filled with holes, surfaces that are already randomly colored, highly textured surfaces, etc.... anything to 'break the canvas' and make it less palatable.

    - someone go try that ; )

Bike Accident on Ravenswood and Montrose

Yesterday around 8:30am, I saw the immediate aftermath of a bike accident at the Ravenswood and Montrose intersection (west side of the Metra tracks). Looked like a car collided with a biker while trying to head south on Ravenswood. I looked up once I heard someone scream and saw the biker on the ground and several pedestrians rushing to help. The biker appeared to be knocked unconscious. I called 911 and was told several others had already contacted them about the accident. I was on my way to work and didn't stick around to see the paramedics arrive. Anyone know if the biker is ok?

    As I've reflected on this thread throughout the week, this has been the take away. On any given day, as we navigate our urban environment, an environment most of us choose to live in, we have a responsibility to move from point to point with this concern of our fellow travelers in mind; that they are doing so as well, and wanting to get there safe and sound. How can we all contribute to that end? Getting there safe and sound together.

The streets were wet after a downpour, she may have been trying to stop but couldn't. I send her my best wishes for a speedy recovery if she or her loved ones should read this post.

Instead of just Thanks and Unneighborly, can a ranking system by relevance be used? That way people can add off topic comments that can be filtered down to a Conversation filter, and maybe a Fact or Answer button with relevant details upvoted? This would be used for description of a lost dog, result of an accident/investigation, etc. There will always be abuse for the buttons, but think the greater good may slightly edge out.

Opinions about Life Performance Gym on Kedzie, f/k/a BodyWorx

Hi - noticed this gym last weekend and was hoping to get people's updated opinions on it, since previous posts/Yelp reviews were quite negative. Apparently many people were upset at the outset when it was called BodyWorx and they signed people up before it opened and continued to charge their cards despite the fact that is was under construction for several more years. Now it appears to be a functional gym, but any positives or negatives from my neighbors? Thanks! Catherine

  • drewmaskreplica Albany Park Resident

    I think "folks that cancelled your memberships" misses the point of what happened here:
    1) The contracted term was one year from opening, which took two-plus years to happen (double charges occurred and refunds were requested before the gym ever opened).
    2) No cancellation materials were offered as no refund was offered. His entire response amounted to "shucks. too bad."

    I understand what you're saying Drew; however I'm in the process of canceling (I did not have an overall positive experience) and have little to go on. I cannot locate a copy of my contract (I doubt if I was given a copy) and when I sent an email to the info email address I was told to come in and fill in a cancelation form. For LA Fitness I just printed one up and sent it in. This seems odd that the gym wants me to come in and have me fill out a cancelation on the spot, especially since the owner knows I'm not happy.

    I paid bi-yearly, and am paid up until the end of the year, I just find this whole buisness is a bit shady.

    I used to live around this area and checked with parking at the church. The rates are pretty reasonable, but they have stipulations on what times you can park there and what days. Also, you have to move your car out of the lot when it snows more than a few inches. I figured this made it not worth it to park there since the whole point of an assigned spot was to not deal with getting stuck on the street. The Damen/Ainsle/Lawrence area can be tough when it comes to parking, which is why I am happy that I moved to an area with much easier parking. Good luck!
