Dear Mayor Daley:

Let me begin my admitting I didn't vote for you this last election. Not that I voted against you either, it's just that I didn't think you had any competition and figured you'd win even without my vote. I should also inform you that aside from this one brief encounter when I was in High School you and I have never met. I guess I should also let you know that I come from humble origins so you wouldn't recognize my last name even if I spray-painted it on the Picasso in Daley Plaza. Even though you're Da Mayor and I'm just a blogger you and I have a couple of things in common.


Bring Back The Snow!

With the warm weather we're experiencing in Chicago many people are thinking of those first wonderful days of pleasant weather ahead. As I write this the signs of spring are already popping up all over the city; kids are riding their bikes, heavy winter coats are not being used, the neighbors are working on their cars (treating me to their favorite music at full blast) and the snow is melting.

Chicago Tribune Joins Garden Blogging

The Chicago Tribune has launched a gardening blog on their website authored by Beth Botts. I've known it was coming for a little while because she e-mailed me and fellow garden blogger Carolyn Choi (who guest blogged an entry on this blog) and asked us a few questions about garden blogging. In the Home & Garden section of today's Chicago Tribune Beth wrote a sidebar on Carolyn and listed other garden bloggers. One of those listed at the end of the sidebar was me. I'd like to congratulate Carolyn on the mention and welcome Beth to the garden-blogosphere and thank her for printing my blog's url.
