The Villages of Buffalo Grove, Vernon Hills,and Lincolnshire all presently tap into Lake Michigan for their water supply. On October 9th, Long Grove's village board voted to hire Applied Technology to complete a Lake Michigan water study to determine if it would be feasible for Long Grove, a neighboring town to also pursue municipal water. According to Long Grove Village Manager David Lothspeich, "the benefits of a village wide system would be a more reliable and quality source of water. During a drought, owners of shallow wells may need to lower the pump in order to tap into additional water. Although it is healthy water, well water often has an odor or (4 comments)

Giving the Gift of Smiles doesn't cost you anything this year! The Holiday season is approaching and that means that charitable donation requests are going to flood your mailbox.

If you're thinking this way, don't fret, it may be just as nice to give the gift of smiles- it won't cost you anything but your time.

Every day after school my 3 boys,ranging from 11-15 would ask the same question- what's for dinner? Not knowing if a client was going to call me at the last minute, I was scared to show off my culinary talents and cook anything complicated or fancy. Not that I knew how, but it sounds good. The number 1 reason I decided to compile this to go list is that my poor boys wouldn't starve. Please no violin! Ok I admit I won't win any #1 mom awards for healthy eating. The second reason for the compilation of this list is to provide a useful tool for any newcomers in town who are sick of the same (9 comments)

The Great Cub Team, an Oxymoron - 10/07/07 02:39 PM
If you live in Long Grove, Illinois you are probably either a Cubs Fan or a Sox fan. I live in Long Grove and personally am a Cubs fan,along with two of my boys. My husband and my third boy ,on the other hand are Cincinnati Reds Fans. Why did they choose the Reds is a story by itself! Unfortunately if you are a Cubs fan, sometime in the course of a season the Cubs are going to blow it. That is why my father, Sheldon Cooper, a die hard cub fan from the turn of the century wrote the following poem last night. The Great (1 comments)
Getting to know the Groves! - 10/05/07 09:36 PM
Since this is my first post to my blog-and hopefully one of 104 a year,let me introduce myself. My name is Judy Greenberg and I'm a realtor in the Buffalo Grove, Long Grove area.

Well it is still a quaint village with 80 shops, galleries, and restaurants 35 miles from the city, but with the advent of highways, its no longer a day trip. I moved to (4 comments)
