It's only been a few months since this sports crazed city went into sports-mania overdrive in support of our Blackhawks.  We don't like having to go very long between victory celebrations.  We do go for long spells between celebrations...but we don't like it.  I know, I know, what city does?    W...

Today was the perfect day for a walk along the lakefront.  Mother nature provided excellent "staging" in the form of brilliant sunshine glistening off the blue Lake Michigan water and gentle breezes blowing through mature shade trees.  The walk was actually a walking buyer's tour.  It was a nice,...

So I just got a call from a "John Roswell" but the person on the other end gave his name as something entirely different.  Plus, let's just say that although the caller ID registered a NY area code, the phone call seemed to originate from a call center that could have been elsewhere--non-US "else...

It's not unusual to see a good Samaritan make a donation to a homeless person.  What is unusual about this story is the donation itself.  When New York software engineer Patrick McConlogue passed Leo Grand on the street, he decided to make the homeless man an offer.  Mr. McConlogue was willing to...

While living in Los Angeles, I became somewhat of a cheerleader for my hometown of Chicago.  I would tell co-workers about Chicago's great restaurants and shopping and they would return to tell me that their vacation in Chicago was even better than I had told them that it would be.  I've been bac...
