Is Cleveland doomed to become a city without music if legislation is updated that spells out the rules for bars, taverns and restaurants that want to add live music?

Lorain's got art

Submitted by rnojonson on Fri, 09/16/2011 - 09:05.

It's been a while since I have shared my two cents, almost a year. It has flown by. Been busy though still not working a job. In house home health care of mom-n-law is full time occupation, for now. I did manage to join the new Lorain Arts Council. So in my free time I have been there.

The Lorain Arts Council has been in cahoots with the City of Lorain to stir up people traffic in the downtown area. Lorain does have some big yearly events but has need for smaller venues. We have secured a building and have a gallery. The gallery is called "LAC Gallery 737 and Art Center.

Dates of upcoming O.D.O.T. Question & Answer meetings

Submitted by Oldroser on Tue, 07/19/2011 - 02:57.

Since I had only one day notice of the meeting, I complained and found that other people had had earlier notices and Sammy Catania had provided Henry Senyak with a list of dates. I suggested they be put in the newsletter. Well, the date it has to go to the printer doesn't allow for that. Well, print the whole list! Fortunately, the helpful Public Information Officer sent me the list, and here it is! I hope in the future to not be the only one raising questions/from the board.

My bouquets are legendary…but trumped by Becker’s donuts

Submitted by Oldroser on Thu, 07/07/2011 - 00:43.

I’ve so far given away over 30 bouquets of roses, starting with old garden rose bouquets to TWDC’s Chris Garland, ODOT’s Craig Hebegrand and to Director Ron Brown of Cleveland Planning in gratitude for his help. At the recent ODOT update and Q&A at Sokolowski’s, Safety Director Marty Flask sat beside me and said he’d heard about the bouquet for Director Brown, it was mentioned at a meeting, adding that City Hall is a small place.

I have been busy with my rose garden

Submitted by Oldroser on Tue, 07/05/2011 - 03:32.

My mini wire-haired dachshunds and my roses are my great joys. So I can safely work in the garden, there are conduit pipes and fence posts stuck here and  there with wire cable connecting them for me to grab onto if I start to fall. You can see this at the right of the picture below.











22nd International Folk Festival-One World

Submitted by lmcshane on Sun, 06/26/2011 - 18:56.

I have lived in NEO for most of my life and somehow this annual event was not on my radar. 

After a week of gloomy weather, the rain lifted and the sunshine and clouds almost stole the show--the dancing acts were entertaining, despite a difficult seating and stage arrangement.

realNEO Props to Max Eternity - What Is Art? The Good Life Made Simple

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Tue, 05/24/2011 - 02:06.

I'm always happy to hear from eternal real NEO activist Max Eternity and see his fascinating work - whether his art or his commentary on the art or others, Max Eternity is unique... and is always exploring "What is Art"?

What Is Art is a new podcast series that I'm making available on Youtube.  In this first installment, I critique a rather peculiar doll I stumbled across on the sidewalk, while on a trip back from a nearby grocery store.

The Other Night I Remembered A Dream - And I Never Remember Dreams. This Was Serious... I was stabbed in the back!

The Other Night I Remembered A Dream - And I Never Remember Dreams. This Was Serious.

Evelyn and I were sitting in the foyer of our home talking, at night, when gunmen in black masks suddenly rushed through our front door. We dove to the ground and lay there wondering what would happen. Suddenly there was a nine millimeter pushing forcefully against my forehead.

Then, I felt a numbing pain in my back and I could feel something was sucking the life out of my spine - and thank God I awoke.

Now I have been stabbed in the back so many times by so many people in Cleveland it is made of steel. I'm in the middle of showdowns with liars and cheaters all over town and the country - no big deal. No - this was near and dear. Big surprise to find out the chairman of realNEO Jeff Buster has been in hyper-back-stab mode and trying to destroy My realNEO. Your realNEO!

I'm Proud of My Wife and My realNEO for Educating Over 200,000 People About Healthier, Happier Childbirth... to-date

I'm Proud of My Wife and My realNEO for Educating Over 200,000 People About Healthier, Happier Childbirth, to-date... and the traffic is increasing with time. While most of the traffic has been direct to YouTube, I never would have bothered to save a clip or post it if I wasn't active with realNEO. realNEO equipped and incented me to share this moment, like I have shared so much in life here.

And Clara's birth will be here, on realNEO, forever.... and has been viewed 1,000s of times here, alone, in a year.

Most interesting, if you view the charts below, from YouTube Insight, this video is especially popular in the Middle-East and Asia (outside the USA) - its relative popularity by top country is in the following order:

IntraCom/UCANX Update: GROHIO Sprouting - States of Emergencies - On the road again - BTWs

  1. Ohio-based Board members have spent lots of time this week meeting and discussing options for development of the cannabis industries in Ohio - dozens of emails a day - and we have made various outreaches in our own ways. We'll compile a report for the board.

    In brief, while we agree Ohio is a perfect place to base the hemp industries, and it looks the same for MMJ, assuming Lewis' campaign is successful, the politics of Northeast Ohio have been and still are so corrupt, corrupting so much here, we are not confident leaders here will make good decisions. We have certainly not thrown in the towel - we have been focused on Cuyahoga County, VC-types, and the broader community... which is very receptive. Next week, we will expand our focus away from Northeast Ohio, to a broader state-wide exploration.

    Feel free to start reaching out in your states as well, as I can't guarantee Ohio leadership will make the right decisions, and we need to be prepared for serious action ahead.
