What can we middle age Chicagoans do to promote some positive soulful popular music such was the norm in the 1970s with music like Motown, R&B, Soul, Chicago Blues. I even liked a lot of Disco like Donna Summers and I sadly note that today's youth music is not in any way couples' dance music. When did it become reality that American youth, including Black African American youth doesn't know how to dance? I did hear that there is a small "step dancing" community, I hope it includes some young people. When is this terrible rap music plague going to finally end? It's gone on longer than the Bubonic Plague Black Death lasted in Europe!

    Have a nice Thanksgiving2 emj1900 and everyone else who made comments here. Let's try to work for decent things in our Chicago city and I would include working for decent positive music for our young people. Yes, of course people have different tastes in music, musical tastes change. I think they often change for the worse, but maybe they will soon change for the better.

Carpet & Upholstery - Great Job!

Yesterday in preparation for the Holidays we had our carpet cleaned by Double A Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning. He did an excellent job without the truck, hoses, water and mess that we have experienced with other Carpet Cleaners. The icing on this cake was that the carpet dried in 2 hours, is clean and fresh with all natural products and amazingly reasonable. This is a family owned business and the owner Darrell is a local resident. His # is 773-895-9424.

  • Thanks Ruby! That's great info. Will pass it on.

  • We just had ours cleaned by New Dawn Carpet Cleaning. They also took care of our delicate Persian area rug and my sofas in the man cave. They were reasonably priced and the best part of all much like your experience it dried fast. I don't have their number but their website is www.NewDawnCarpetCleaning.com They have a coupon for new customers so don't forget to click and print that to save some money :)

Fall Lawn and Garden Clean-ups and Snow Removal

Dear Neighbors:

My husband scheduled Panama yesterday. Although summer and fall weather was beautiful, it’s time to clean out gardens/side lots, trim the bushes back and aerate the lawns in preparation for winter. For years we have used Panama Maintenance 773-967-8343 because they are in our community all the time, they’re honest and do a great job at a fair price. Panama also does snow removal in the winter. Call Panama to get on his schedule early for fall cleanups, snow removal and other services.

  • Ruby in Bronzeville Engaged neighborhood advocate

    E.J., Panama is black and a black owned locally run business. You may see his white truck, trailers and equipment all over the Southside of town.

    Leonard, for handyman services we use Shelley Odell 773.407.2346 he is honest, competent, fair and reliable. He lives in the community and is also black.

  • Leonard2003 kyria

    For the record, I am Happy to have good and honest people working at my house regardless of ethnicity or background . It's hard to find that in my experience.
