need to hire/borrow van to move bookcase

(Does "Acts of kindness" include needing one?)
I need to get a bookcase from south Evanston to north of Howard, about two miles.
I can help carry (needs two), and pay a little, but it needs to move soon and all my leads fell through.

  • Try Garret Riviere, I don't have his phone number but his FB is here: https://www.facebook.com/garrettriviere19

    This is what he does, he also works for Dolly. He helped me move some stuff last month and everything went really well. Highly recommend.

  • Hello, while I don't have a van or moving truck, I am more than happy to help you move the item. I'm home at 4:30 pm and weekends. I love at Thorndale Beach South. There is no charge to help you move it. George

FIRESTICK

I need help setting up my new firestick. Anyone out there that can help me?

  • Maybe not the greatest, but there is a page of instructions on the Amazon.com website - https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=202106780

    I have a Fire Stick but use a Roku. I do not remember it being difficult to get working.

    Nowadays, most Chicago libraries have a staff person dedicated to helping folks with computer problems. You are required to have a current library card and must make an appointment beforehand. I think each session with this person, who is called a cybernavigator, is up to an hour long. When you are arranging for your session, be sure to inquire if the cybernavigator can assist you with your FIRESTICK. I have met with the cybernavigator at Edgewater Library and found her to be knowledgeable, patient, and understanding. Good luck!

Indian Boundary Park will host the fourth annual showcase for local film producers Wednesday, Aug. 30, 2017 at 8 p.m. in the Cultural Center, 2100 W. Lunt.

The showcase will feature three short films about “what we can learn about ourselves, our city and our se3nses when we look beyond what we take for granted,” the Chicago Park District said.

“The Dividing Line of Chicago” is a youth-produced film featuring interviews with residents of different neighborhood discussing segregation and diversity.

“Home” by Helen Lee is part narrative, part dance exploring the ways in which people perceive and engage through the five senses.

“Unbroken Glass” is an autobiographical documentary as film maker Dinesh Das Sabu interviews family and friends, and travels to India to piece together a fractured family history.

The film showcase is free of charge.

...and there was LIGHT in Rogers Park

I am delighted to report that sometime today, workmen fixed all four
streetlights that were out. I had a lovely, light-filled walk with my dogs
just now. By the way, police presence has been noted and appreciated
twice today! Thanks, friends and city employees.
Emily

  • I am happy that your problem was resolved.

    Glad that C P D was visible.

    sorry it took a neighborhood blog to get the political attention needed - remember this at voting time. Service should be provided without having to wait days and days and then having resort to a blog to assemble neighborhood support. I was taught - attention to details - makes all the difference. That usually means - the right people in a job makes all the difference in results.

  • The workmen came out to replace the lights literally within hours of being notified by Emily. Thanks to local social media, she was able to get the correct information about how to seek help (by dialing 311). Seems to me that everything worked the way it should.

Viewing the Partial Eclipse at the Rogers Park Library.

We viewed the Partial Solar Eclipse on August 21, 2017 at the Rogers Park Library. It was a cloudy day but we were able capture some pictures of the partial eclipse in the Reading Garden. Even though the skies were overcast, some parts of the eclipse punched through the clouds. Here are composites of pictures of the moon crossing the face of the sun, and moving away from the moon using a digital camera with an eclipse viewer. The photo...

We viewed the Partial Solar Eclipse on August 21, 2017 at the Rogers Park Library. It was a cloudy day but we were able capture some pictures of the partial eclipse in the Reading Garden. Even though the skies were overcast, some parts of the eclipse punched through the clouds. Here are composites of pictures of the moon crossing the face of the sun, and moving away from the moon using a digital camera with an eclipse viewer. The photo of the maximum coverage of the sun was taken without the filter but with a fast shutter. About 40 watched from the library’s Reading Garden. We give a big thank you to our children's librarian Kristin Grace for organizing this event.

    The nice thing about using a service is that will have met your obligation for employer social security and medicare because the service handles this as your contractor. Everybody is happy.
