    Whew! Wonderful news! Happened with my Siamese 'Karma' . I would take and monitor him only in our backyard. 🐈 cat's are trainable and he knew he was not allowed beyond fence. For years this was flawless. I would check on him every 20 minutes and then one day I dozed off for about four hours. Immediately I went to bring him in and he was nowhere to be found. For four agonizing days he had either been on a feline field trip, or somehow accidentally locked up in a shed or garage. Be sure to block that access so she stays out of there. Cat's are wonderful!

Free perennial plants

I have lots of plants that need dividing and I'm happy to share with my neighbors. Both sun and shade perennials, including several kinds of hosta, coreopsis, purple daylilies, campanula, spiderwort, Japanese anemones, heliopsis, black-eyed susans, goldenrod, sea oats, Culver's root, trumpet vine, autumn-flowering clematis, iris, garlic chives, mint.......and more. Google these names if you want to see what they look like in bloom. Contact me if you're interested.
P.S. "Acts of kindness" seems odd but no other category fits!

Question about the Salvation Army stores

Hi, would anyone know what the Salvation Army stores discounts are on Fridays? I thought the sign said after 6 pm 75% off everything. Please advise.

  • I don't have access to FB.

  • I was told that on Sat. - everything that has the 1/2 price color tag is 69 cents. if they have 4 color tags - it is the one that is the oldest and has not sold - at least this was the method the Salvation Army store that was on Broadway near Montrose used...Happy Shopping....

Plumber Recommendations

I live in a 5 story 1920s condo building with 10 units. There are a total of 4 plumbing riser stacks (galvanized) in the building. We have these risers routed out every year. Our contractor is recommending we route the risers twice a year now.

I am looking for recommendations for reputable plumbers with experience in vintage buildings. We are interested in getting professional opinions on such topics as:

1. Should we even be routing the pipes given their age and potential frailty?
2. Is power flushing a better option to routing?
3. What is remaining useful life and potential approaches to replacement?

Thanks much for any and all suggestions!

  • Power Plumbing will give you a straight, complete answer before they do anything, They are not only the best plumbers in the city, they are the best in all the trades.

  • Thank you North Center guy! We appreciate the endorsement!
