Dog found

M:y husband found this dog this morning. He doesn't have a collar and is not neutered. He's safe now in our yard, but we will need to call Animal Control later this afternoon as we have two dogs of our own that are rather territorial. Please message me if this is your pup!

Wisconsin Day trip from Chicago - Fall Foliage

Hi, I'm looking for a destination in the south part of WI that would be great for a fall foliage day trip. I'm looking for some good walking/hiking trails, beautiful scenery.

Thanks

  • Kettle Moraine State Park in Wisconsin is beautiful. Farther afield is Devils Lake State Park for great hiking...

  • Try Bristol, Wisconsin for hiking. If you just want a view, Holy Hill is beautiful.

We are gardeners ourselves and have fairly decent knowledge about what kinds of shrubs-trees-flowers work in our environment. We are looking for someone to built a layout or border for our front yard and part of back that we can fill in with what we like or already have growing. Also on a limited budget (of course.) Any tips or example of costs youve incurred? Thanks everyone!

Kids selling Tribune subscriptions

Does anyone else have kids coming to their house every other week trying to sell subscriptions to the Chicago Tribune? It's almost always after 7 o'clock at night and always the same thing: it's for school and when you tell them you don't want the subscription they ask for a donation. Does anyone give money to people at their door? Kind of annoyed by it.

    It is essentially door to door panhandling.

Mozzarella sticks??

been dying for some crispy, gooey mozzarella sticks in Logan square. Any suggestions?? Those soggy balls at boiler room don't count, and I haven't seen them on any menus nearby- I gotta be missing something!

  • AbaZaba16 have you been to Leonas since the family sold it? We went once recently and the entire menu was gutted and replaced with a generic italian restaurant one, i didn't note if they had mozzarella sticks or not though.

  • Ugh, I feel like some I've been to have been diff than others, but that they still had them. Not 100% though, sucks they were bought. I did notice things had changed a bit, such as what they give you with an entree. Lame.

Mcdonalds 2707 N Milwaukee

I don't understand why ever time this Mcdonalds has a promotional event for kids, the signs are only in Spanish. Do they not want any English speaking kids at these events? This is an ongoing thing for this Mcdonalds and I find it very insulting.
Does anyone else think this is wrong??

  • Carter O'Brien lager beer rioter

    I'm not seeing how Robin's experience equates to Godwin's Law. This came to mind:

    http://econlog.econlib.org/archives/2013/09/hendersons_godw.html

    "When people in a political discussion want to put down other people who even mention Hitler, they will invoke Godwin's Law even if the person compared no one to Nazis or Hitler."

    That said, I could care less how McDonald's advertises as far as language. If anything, most people's distaste comes from how they target children with their happy meal toys. It's the Espanol-speakers that ought to be offended here, if anyone.

  • Bearmosa Resident of Hermosa

    I worked in marketing. There's a lot of importance placed on language spoken in the home. That's the language of family and friends... brands want to be your friend. When you see an ad in Spanish next time assume this and don't be offended or assume that the targeted audience doesn't know English. They most likely do.

1700 Block of Drake

My Husband, Daughter and I took a walk the other day and found a house we would like to purchase on the 1700 block of Drake, about 6 blocks form our current home on the North side of Armitage. Please let me know what your thoughts are in that particular block and the area in general. I have lived in Logan, Armitage/Kedzie area since 2000 but, before making a purchase, we would like to hear more about the general feeling of the area, especially now that we have a young child. Thanks in advance for anything that you might have to offer, I appreciate it!

  • Simons Park to the South with the Bloomingdale Trail/606 to the North and I believe there to be space for new builds right on the Trail. Its an ideal spot. You also have an Elementary School just west.

    Great Location. The area seems to weathered the downturn well and crime on that particular block is light if nonexistent.

    Most of the other stations that have them though are fronting more major streets than California, which is relatively easy to cross - especially now that they've installed the mid-block crossing. At both Damen and Western there is a major road that the second stairwells bypass. The subway and interstate stations are whole other animals that can't really be viewed as the same category as these legacy stations.

    Obviously in an ideal world you'd have it. Given the financial and space restrictions that everyone has mentioned though, it seems to make sense to just have the one...at least in my mind.

El Stops with Only One Exit?

Recent renovations to the California blue line stop have made it painfully clear that the CTA never intended to improve the actual functionality of the station.

I cannot think of another north side blue line stop that does, but maybe my memory isn't so good. Are there red line stops with only one entrance / exit?

If any of us want to petition the CTA about this at some point in future, it'd be useful to recognize how rare this phenomena is.

Cute puppy!

Hello everyone,

Two days ago a van pulled up next to Chief O'Neills and left a super cute brown puppy. She appears to be around 4 months pit bull mix, well fed and happy. Is anyone missing a cute little puppy?

  • Chances are the dog was either stolen (or just from a litter no one wanted). If you or someone else is keeping the dog in your home, post her as Found on Lost Dogs IL's Facebook page. She looks adorable!!

  • Yes, try posting on lost dogs Illinois. Cicero and the SW side has recently had quite a few dogs stolen. I'm not saying it doesn't happen all over Chicago- but for some reason last week I saw quite a few more posting than usual. Also, you should probably head to any reputable vet and get the dog scanned for a chip.

  • any such name live, walk, & cook in logan square

    Sounds like she was dumped. http://chicagopitstop.org/cpsrsite/ Chicago Pit Stop, http://peaceforpits.org/ Peace for Pits, and

They have a cat and said that they are now letting their cat (who was never an outdoor cat before) go outside by himself. While I personally don't agree with keeping cats outdoors in the city and would never let my own kitty out, it's not my cat and therefore not really my choice.

The issue I'm having is that this cat seems to not be too content about its new situation, especially with the weather being what it is, and slips into the building every chance he gets. He's spent several nights in another neighbor's apartment who felt bad for him and I have let him briefly into mine (after he followed me inside). He and my kitty didn't get along so out he went.
This morning he was meowing outside my door in the back stairway (probably got in while I was going in and out doing laundry yesterday).

So I guess I'm not sure which side of the intervention line this falls. Do I secretly find this cat a nice home with more doting owners, do I ignore the situation? Just want to get some objective opinions :)

  • I just like this the best: I thank the world for people like me who step up and DO something. Must feel amazing to pat yourself on the back so much??

The only ones who really bug me, and Julia mentioned them in her original post, are people who push house-bred cats outside unprepared or just abandon them.

Hi all. I'm looking to re-do my backyard deck and was wondering if anyone had some good folks they could point me towards? Yelp seems less than helpful and Angie's List is largely bought and paid for. Many thanks in advance.

Any local rescue or similar that accept dry cat food donations (*opened bags*). I've gone through a few partial bags of food while switching my cat to something new. Rather than throw out perfectly good cat food, I'd like to at least try and donate.

One container is a mix of 3 flavors of Nature's Variety Instinct Grain Free (Duck, Rabbit, Chicken). Maybe 2 or 3 lbs worth. And the other is a 5 lbs. or so bag of the same brand, salmon flavor. None of them sat well with my cat for whatever reason.

Your best bet is to go the locations you are interested in, go on different days, different times, drive & walk around the area, up & down the side streets & main streets, do this often and you will know where you feel like 'home'. I've lived here for many years, thru the ups & downs of the area.

Vintage Record Player Console Repair

Hi Neighbors! I inherited a vintage RCA Victor Console Record player from the mid 60s. Parts of it work, and parts don't. I don't know what I'm doing, but I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of shops who might be able to take a look at this.

If anyone knows of a place that does house calls that would be great, because the entire unit is about 100lbs.

I did find an old thread on EveryBlock and some people recommended a few such as Deltronics, 20th Centruy and Mina's TV & Video, the last of which will come and pick up. Any other suggestions out there?

Thanks!

  • Anthony's Electronic Service on Irving Park and Broadway has fixed two turn tables for me. Just read the reviews.

  • Tanner at Uncharted books just had his console record player fixed. He said he knows a guy that fixes this type of record player. You might want to stop in there and ask him.
