What's everyone paying for Comcast (or other) cable/internet service?

Given Comcast's less than transparent pricing, I'm wondering what everyone else is paying. I negotiated Blast internet, Digital Preferred with HD, HBO, and Steampix for approx. $120/mo. We have one cable box. No DVR. No rented modem/router. How about you??

    Kelly - there are plenty of straight people without kids (with more disposable income) and plenty of gay people with kids. As someone who (presumably) was once a child, I suspect that your parents would have appreciated saving money whenever they can.

Looking for an in-home petsitter for several nights

I'm looking for an in-home petsitter for my dog for a few upcoming trips. I've used a few services in the area and they've just been okay. There was one in particular with which I wasn't at all happy. I came home to all of my windows being open with the AC on, a sink full of filthy dishes and doubts about whether my dog was properly looked after. Lack of communication and general flakiness have been problems too. My dog is a very well behaved twenty pound mutt. He's an easy dog. I'm an easy owner (in more than one way!). We're near the Southport corridor. Please let me know if you have a petsitter you adore. Thank you!

  • Hi Andrea. I'm retired from a career in broadcast sales & for the last two yrs. have been pursuing my passion- loving pet care! I have numerous references & while the summer was busy, I have more openings now. Please contact me at 248-760-8977. I live in Buena Park. Looking forward to hearing from u.

Old Dominick's Site in Lakeview Will Finally be Developed

From Ald. Tom Tunney: "The site of the former Dominick’s has been vacant since the fire in 2005 and currently serves as a surface parking lot. The new five-story development will include a 71,000 square foot Mariano’s grocery store, a 40,000 square foot X-Sport Fitness, 15,000 square feet of additional retail space and 280 parking spaces. A new traffic signal will be installed at the entrance of the building and the signal at Wellington and Broadway will get a much-needed upgrade. "

    Good to know! Thanks for sharing.

  • Ryan C. 15+ year Lakeview East resident

    I won't believe it until Mariano's opens its doors -- this is the 3rd or 4th announcement that something will be built on that parcel...

    ...but I will keep my fingers crossed.

  • Rob Rosmis Your Neighbor, Your Lakeview Realtor

    Good stuff! This will be great for the area. Let's just hope it gets completed as projected.

Debating if I should call 311 - car abandonment maybe?

There is car at the end of our street that has 2 flat back tires. I swear it hasn't moved in about 2 weeks. It was there last month, with the same 2 back tires blown out, and then it disappeared for a week and now it's back. I feel bad, but it feels like that person is using that spot as their own personal space. Should I call 311?

  • Gunnery Sgt Hartman Neighborhood Bully

    Hllhouse, put down the xbox and move your damned car.

    And yes, you should call 311, there's a phone app where you can take pictures of it as well. Does it have any tickets on it?

  • Yes call. I also use an app on my iPhone called chi works. You can report all kind of issues on it (potholes, city light issues, abandoned cars etc) reported one using the app, which can give address and gps tagged location, and pictures. Car was gone within the day and never seen again

Books to Donate/Sell

Hello! We have a few boxes of paperback books to donate/sell. Mostly adult and some young adult, fiction and non-fiction. We were thinking of maybe doing a book sale and donating the money. Or would it be more worthwhile to just donate the books to the local library or charity?
Recommendations/thoughts/suggestions appreciated! Thanks!

  • sue

    I work for Mrs. Murphy & Sons Irish Bistro and we have the World's Smallest Library in our lobby. It works like this: anyone is free to take a book at any time but, under an honor system, is expected to either bring it, or another book back at some point. This open system has worked surprisingly well and we are always open to book donations. In addition, once in a while, we do BookSwaps, after which we take leftover books to OpenBooks or other literacy programs.

  • If you have the time, take them to Uncharted Books at 2630 North Milwaukee. The owner might take a few off your hands and give you in-store credit for another book that catches your eye. Donate the rest of them; you won't get much $ from selling them on your own. Another option besides those mentioned above is the Newberry Library who run an annual book fair. http://www.newberry.org/book-fair-donations

    @ D3 "Some of us won't be voting for this administration regardless of who their opponents are."

    So, you really think the alternative candidates are going to get you ->LESS<- revenue sucking to support Chicago's theft class ? ; ) - that's a truly hilarious notion.

    The politics and ideology of the emerging alternative candidates REALLY suggest THAT to you ??? : )

  • @D3, no matter who you vote for, my vote will cancel out yours, just saying...

Dog Walkers

I have noticed a great increase in the amount of doggy poop in our neighborhood. It is everywhere! Please, please, please pick up after your dog-poop everywhere is like ringing the dinner bell for rats. I know someone posted about this a few months ago, but I think it bears repeating.

  • Agree! Every time I now my front lawn, I have to walk the yard first and recently saw an increase in rats in my alley. As a dog owner myself, these people are giving us a bad wrap.
