WE WON!! We REALLY WON!!!!!! - 11/27/07 10:54 PM
Wow! Not sure where to start. Toledo, Ohio was chosen to attend the LivCom awards ceremony in London, England. Our fair city had been placed in the running as The Most Liveable Community in our population category. We were among six other areas from around the globe. The Toledo Blade ran a story about our achievement, as a city, and we should all be very proud. While we weren't in 1st Place it is very exciting to be in the company of other cities like Malmo, Sweden and Lyon, France. I am just thrilled at this comment: Toledo was judged among seven communities, and the (12 comments)
Attitudes on Housing Relief - 11/26/07 10:30 PM
I have just finished reading an article in the that speaks to the matter of the federal government providing a remedy for relief in the foreclosure crisis that we are experiencing. As with most things, there are portions that I can agree with and portions that I think are pure drivel. For instance: "...the Senate stalled legislation that would strengthen the Federal Housing Administration's mortgage programs, a key resource for homeowners who need to refinance out of adjustable-rate loans into more affordable fixed-rate ones." So, in the classic manner of political double-speak, there is a rising cheer of "Let's save the folks (8 comments)
Getting the skinny! You can do it! - 11/25/07 10:55 PM
A while back I did a post on the advantages of knowing your city/town. I am a firm believer that knowledge is the best tool we can have, and this belief proves true time and again. Today a friend in California sent me a link to a remarkable little online tool that I thought would be worth sharing. A unique little program called Zip Skinny. I started searching my local zip codes and was surprised at the information available. I live in the Point Place area of Toledo. This is an area that started out as a vacation/resort area 100 years ago because it (6 comments)
Mother Nature's Painting - 11/13/07 04:12 PM
Today was one of those incredibly beautiful days - sunshine, mild temperatures, very slight breeze and a true Fall feeling. The air was a little more crisp, the smells a little more earthy. As I was driving to pick up some signs and take care of some errands I found my truck turning into the Wildwood Metropark. I couldn't control the wheel as we wound around the curvy roads and into the parking area. I swear that truck was possessed! And I'm glad it was! I grabbed my camera and set out to spend a few minutes walking among the trees and letting (14 comments)
Unexpected gifts ---- Life is full of them! - 11/01/07 10:13 PM
Ya know, some days we wake up and realize that we take way too much for granted. We see people every day, nod our heads, smile, wave and continue on with our lives. But...did we really see people? Did we pay attention to their response when we smiled or waved? Probably not. We have a young family that lives next door and they are struggling - as do many young families. The father works 2, sometimes 3 jobs, mom is handicapped from a childhood accident and there are two little ones that are a breath of fresh air - most of the (14 comments)
