    Chinese New Year 2018: Celebrate the Year of the Dog in Chicago
    As a young girl, I remember performing with my dance troupe beneath the pagoda in Chinatown Square for Chinese New Year, fluttering silk ribbons and pirouetting with long silk fans in mid-air. One of my fondest memories, though, is receiving red envelopes stuffed with lucky money - what kid wouldn't love that?

    Chicagoans are very fortunate to experience a winter that has it all - cold temps, biting wind chills, freezing rain, and of course, snow. And speaking of snow, now is a good time to remind everyone to clear their sidewalks after it snows.

Indoor places for family pictures

I'm a stickler for taking family pictures every year, but this year I procrastinated and missed the fall season. Now it's way too cold to take outdoor pictures so I'm thinking this might give us an opportunity to take pictures at a cool location we wouldn't ordinarily use. Any suggestions?

  • Hi. How about Garfield Park Conservatory?

    We had a great photo session a few years ago inside the Blackstone Hotel. Lots of interesting spaces.

Santa arrives early with wonder dog SYD

Santa dropped by the house early today to check out the chimney - to make sure he'd fit - and also to drop by and see his favorite canine - SYD - they obviously have a great rapport.

Prepay your Property Taxes for 2017 Tax Deduction

You may want to pay the 1st installment of your property tax bill before the end of this year for a deduction on your 2017 federal taxes. You may not be able to utilize the deduction in 2018.

https://illinoisestateplanning.blogspot.com/2017/12/prepay-your-property-taxes-for-2017-tax.html

    Prepay your Property Taxes for 2017 Tax Deduction
    With the likely passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, it is estimated that the majority of taxpayers who currently itemize their deductions will take the standard deduction for the tax year 2018. The reason for this change will be capping of State and Local Tax and Property tax deductions at $10,000.

Thinking about Moving to 60616

Hi friends...we are thinking about moving from over the river to south of the river....seems like a great - upcoming area. A new Marriott Marquis just went up, a Hilton is in process - and I hope that a grocery, walgreens, etc. are on their way.

Any hints or pointers those of you who live in the area can offer. We don't have a car....so, public transit, walking are our primary modes of getting around....

  • Judy Happy Chicago Resident!

    Hi New Neighbors...thank you for all of your feedback over this last month - we are moving to 60616 - renting at Cermak and Michigan. It is still a developing area - so, shopping and services won't be out my back door as they are in Streeterville. Without a car, I just have to plan better.

    New Question....what ward are we in? I have seen reference to Ward 3and Ward 4 And are there community/civic activities that I can get involved in?

M&J Fdtn. Gave and Gave at Christmas Time

TBT - MJ and I take a photo at the JUMP offices where we recorded his narration track for a video I produced and directed for the M&J Foundation (M&J stood for Michael & Juanita Jordan Charitable Foundation). MJ had a much bigger smile when he took a photo with my son Matt and his buddy Brett Witek, but they didn't make him work like I did.
