Great Lakes Brewery Tremont Cleveland Ohio tourism economic driver

The Great Lakes Brewery conducts a brewery tour which attracts visitors to Ohio City, Cleveland, Ohio.   This is a real economic driver for the economy of the West Side Market and environs.   This group of Brewery visitors was listening to their guide (back to the tree in the center of the photo) as she gave them the history of the buildings - including the GLB tasting restaurant in the background.

I was thrilled to see all sorts of green sprouts and now colors appearing in our yard this week - and the header of the day features some of the first daffodils on Daffidil Hill, in Lakeview Cemetery - a few blocks from my house in East Cleveland.

Lou Pumphrey in uniform carrying Flag of Peace in 2009 St. Patrick's Day Parade

I was surprised to see a letter to the editor printed and on-line in the Sunday, March 22, 2009, Cleveland Plain Dealer - "A flag of peace is found out of order at the St. Patrick's Day parade", by Lou Pumphrey. It starts: "Being half-Irish (on me mudder's side), off work on St. Patrick's Day and knowing the day would be sunny and warm, I vaguely considered donning my 41-year-old U.S. Army dress uniform and joining the St. Paddy's Day parade downtown, carrying my flag." But there was no accompanying picture of Lou or the Flag of Peace.

In the print edition, there was a file photo of a parade, but it was hardly relevant.

Although the overall exterior of the building is pretty lame, its location on the south side of the Boston Harbor makes for a nice view to the North.   Once inside the lobby of the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), these brightly colored wall glass panels are what you see.    I also took in the Shepard Fairey exhibit.

This photo is a section of a telephoto shot of an  industrial, grid connected solar steam electrical generating station just east of Boron, California.  The air temperature was about 40 degrees F.  

One of the downsides of these generators - more are scheduled for construction - is that they require fresh water for the steam condensation towers - losing the water to evaporation.

Clarence E. Van Duzer at Convivium 33

I was very saddened to learn today we lost a great artist, loved friend and family to many, and inspirational Clevelander with the passing of Clarence E. Van Duzer. I knew Van Duzer as a family friend and always was inspired and energized by talking with him, his work, and his approach to life. At our last meeting, at his Convivium opening, in 2006, he was so strong and clear it seemed he would live on forever.

Lucky's Cafe is on the West Side of Cleveland right down the street from the Onion Domed church. Maurice Small has a very nice garden in the summer patio next to Lucky's.   Across the street during warm weather is a local farmer's market.    

These type of proprietor owned/operated establishments are vital to healthy neighborhoods.

As I recall, Kuzzo's was down around 40th on St Clair.   It had closed up for good when I looked at the menu on the front window last year.   But I thought that both their menu and their house "rules" were worth recording.
