Life in Cleaveland

Submitted by lmcshane on Sat, 06/29/2013 - 10:24.

 I had lunch yesterday with a smart, independent woman who has managed to carve out a good life for herself in Cleveland.  We are both complainers, but we both see the positives, too.  She has lived in Chicago, Toronto, and Cleveland, and of the three places, she prefers Cleveland.  Cleveland's cost of living allows her to travel to Paris - twice a year to be recharged by the energy and joie de vivre - that is uniquely French.

Phase out US nuclear plants, Fukushima

Submitted by Oldroser on Sat, 05/04/2013 - 20:37.

 I read here that the massive disaster at Fukushima was because the operator was too cheap to keep up needed repairs, and now has no incentive to clean up the disaster. www.washingtonsblog.com/cat/sciencetechnology

Joy Machines

Saturday: January 12, 2013. An unbelievably, unseasonable, sunny day in NEO.  The West Side Market had a banner day with some vendors selling out of items.  I rode my bike down and dropped it off at Joy Machines.  While I shopped, Joy Machines' Renato replaced my kick stand and trued my tires (damaged by the bike racks on RTA).  All for a reasonable $20.00.  Great service, great guys.

For me, the most inspiring part of yesterday's Sustainable Cleveland Summit was the appearance

Citi refused to accept mortgage payments, scheduled auction BUT

Submitted by Oldroser on Fri, 06/22/2012 - 00:08.

The woman's activist son had been helping others fight to keep their homes, possibly the bank was retaliating, the auction was scheduled even though she'd been told an executive would work with her, but the community rallied behind her; and lo and behold, they changed their mind. Even worked out new payment arrangement so she pays less.
