At least not even in my relatively upscale neighborhood. As the wife and I were driving past Ogden Avenue, right on the border between Downers Grove and Westmont, we saw the lot of a car repair shop that had parked on its lot corner: a Mercedes, and Jaguar, and… a Rolls Royce. Now I’m not… Continue reading There’s something you don’t see every day
So two weeks ago we suffered through a major blackout caused by the storm through Downers Grove that was only later defined to be a Tornado. While we only lost a few tree branches, not even the worst storm damage our trees had suffered, parts of the village were ripped up pretty good.

Finally, someone who’s proven she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty! I actually met Cynthia Plaster Caster once, when the Chicago Psychotronic Film Society was going on in the 80s. Don’t remember if she was part of the program, or just showed up because she knew the hosts. One of those showings did run… Continue reading ‘Plaster Caster’ Mounts Mayoral Campaign
This past week, my parents were out to visit us. Largely because my dad, well retired, still looks for projects to work on, and we settled on replacing the very wobbly wood handrailing on our concrete deck. The deck over the attached garage, so one side has a ten-foot plunge onto asphalt if the railing… Continue reading One for my homiez!
Unearthed after nearly 60 years, a "lost" UPA cartoon, the first directed by Gene Deitch. It was a pilot for a proposed theatrical cartoon series to star Howdy Doody, but Buffalo Bob is said have hated it. Too bad.
