A while back someone posted that they had a lot of plastic take out containers with lids and they were wondering if anyone had a use for them as it seemed a waste to pitch them. A person posted that her friend could use them as she worked to feed individuals in a shelter in the Milwaukee area I believe. I have been giving them to her but her friend has now moved. Does anyone have any thoughts on who/where might be able to use these.

I am moving to the area at the end of the month and am in search of a secure parking situation for my scooter. After having my first scooter stolen in 2016, I am no longer willing to park it on the street overnight. With scooter season rapidly approaching, I'm wondering if anyone has (or knows someone who has) some garage space available that I could rent. I live near Milwaukee & Belle Plaine - ideally it would be within reasonable walking distance of my place. Thanks!

Need to vent. Today I was picking up my brother from his friends, I honked 2 times and these idiots (man and woman) who were walking their dog started yelling at me like crazy and said that why I had a phone. I got so mad I flicked them off and they tried to get close to my car so I took off. They were yelling at me crazy.

Hello, So I am wondering if anyone else here gets charged for water fixtures on their water bill. Particularly speaking of non-metered bills. I own a small ranch style home and my bill has always been double of my friends or family. My last bill was $1000+ where as others are usually around $500.
I was told by Dept of Water that only properties larger than single family homes get charged for water fixtures, and my property is classified as a single family home, but I still get charged for the water fixtures.
Anyone else with a relatively small home have the same experience?

Does anyone know who I can contact regarding the neighborhood flyers tossed on our front yard. Sometimes there are three in one day. I always throw them out. I want to take my address off the delivery list. It's almost like getting unwanted calls and hanging up.

I lost a set of keys on Keeler, just south of Milwaukee. They are on a carabiner clip with a rainbow colored strap attached to it.
Reward if returned.
