City Notes

  • I was talk­ing with an employ­ee at the Steel­yard Best Buy over the week­end and was told that they’re doing much worse than cor­po­rate had set for them, about $10k-less-than-esti­mate-per-week it sound­ed like. I was also told that oth­er busi­ness­es down there are hurt­ing too, they’re all wait­ing for Wal-Mart to open in the hopes that busi­ness will spike then. It is pret­ty bad when my pur­chase like­ly account­ed for 1/7th of their Sun­day busi­ness.
  • I’ve called the Cleve­land Green Build­ing Coali­tion three times about get­ting infor­ma­tion on green­ing my home and haven’t heard back once.
  • My Collinwood Drum­line video keeps get­ting com­ments from Collinwood youth. I think it means a lot to them to see one of their sources of pride out there on the Inter­net, post­ed by a stranger.
  • I final­ly met some­one from the Greater Cleve­land area who is just as geeked up about liv­ing in Cleve­land as I am. That says some­thing, but I’m not sure what.
  • Whiskey Island is a great place, and I’m actu­al­ly glad it is a bit hard to access. I want to spend a day there hang­ing out and toss­ing a ‘bee around. Espe­cial­ly with a dog. Or a girl, I sup­pose.
  • I must find taro in the area before Wednes­day.

  • I’ve found dried Taro Root pow­der at the co-op/ nature’s bin type stores to use as a non-gluten/non-gelatin soup thick­en­er. I have nev­er looked for fresh root, though. Good luck.

  • I’ll try at the Asian Mar­ket in St. Clair/Superior…if they don’t have it, it prob­a­bly can’t be found in Cleve­land. I need it for a sug­ar-free dessert recipe I’m going to try.

  • I haven’t seen it at the WSM [doesn’t mean it isn’t there…] Tink Holl is where I’m head­ed after work. I couldn’t remem­ber what it was called. There’s anoth­er mar­ket or two over that way…
