Unable to lower your flag because it is on a fixed pole?

Attaching a black ribbon to the top of a U.S. flag is an acceptable alternative for flags that cannot be lowered to half-staff. See picture.

More about Honor Flight Chicago below...

Honor Flight Chicago was founded to recognize Chicagoland’s World War II and Korean War veterans by flying them all-expense-paid to Washington DC for a day of honor, remembrance and celebration. Currently we are flying WWII and Korean War veterans, but we are accepting applications from Vietnam War veterans for future flights. After we have reached out to all WWII and Korean War veterans who are interested, we will begin flying Vietnam veterans to Washington DC.

    Honor Flight Chicago
    The American veteran is one of our greatest treasures-the men and women who answered our nation's call, especially at times of our greatest need. At Honor Flight Chicago, our mission is to thank and pay tribute to these heroes-especially our World War II and Korean War veterans-by bringing them to Washington, D.C.

Comcast Door-to-door

This evening a man claiming to be from Comcast went door-to-door asking if the home had internet, cable, and security. He did not try to sell us any services. I called Comcast and they said door-to-door sales people have to carry ID from either Comcast or X-Finity. Sharing this so others are aware.

  • Diana Davis-Tounsi My Kind Of Town

    Magic word is reseller. Thanks though.

  • I encountered a man name Peter from Comcast. Friendly guy. Very informative that I actually switched from ADT to infinity Home.

Website/Blog devoted to Mayfair News?

I moved here from Hollywood (Florida) and we had a few local blogs that just talked about neighborhood stuff. Is there anything like that for Mayfair, or maybe the surrounding areas? Seems like Mayfair isn't very well known.
