“Does anyone have a recommendation for a company used to do a condo reserve study? We are in a small 10-15 unit building and haven’t had one done in several years. We have gotten two quotes so far, one is in the $2k range and one is almost $5k, this is a big difference and we want to be sure we are evaluating the merits of the various companies vs. just choosing the cheapest option. Any tips in what to look for or what is important to be included? Thanks in advance!”

early-voter

“Was wondering if anyone else found this odd-

I went to the early polling location at the Height Benning Library- short line great staff.
I found it odd that none of the voting machines had privacy screens around the terminal.
I’m not shy about my choices but I could imagine others not wanting their choices shown.”

black_cat_third_floor

“Just in time for Halloween, the residents of Lanier Mews, on Lanier between Adams Mill and Ontario, have a friendly, regular visitor – a beautiful long-haired black cat. The cat does not seem skittish and is very friendly. Two nights ago, she (no idea if it’s a female, really) let me pet her for awhile, and last night she sat with me on my front porch and wanted to come inside. I offered her food and water, which she declined, making me think she’s not without a home, but it’s just a guess. I’ve looked online to see if there are any missing cats in the area matching her description, but haven’t seen anything. She has a collar and bell, but no tags. Is she just a new friendly outdoor cat neighbor? I’m worried about her but am not sure of next steps. Any advice would be helpful!”

“I know people have posted before about extermination but I couldn’t find anything that quite fit our situation. My husband and I have been having issues with roaches in our apartment for the past 5 months. In theory the building’s treatment is thorough, but not working. We have to take EVERYTHING out of our kitchen and bathroom cabinets and they spray all of it. We’ve had to do this at least 8 times since June and it’s a huge inconvenience. My husband said someone from maintenance told him one or two of the nearby apartments are not complying with pest control and leave out pet food, which is obviously a huge problem. (more…)

“A multi-unit building is under construction on the opposite side of our alley. Today they built parking spaces, one of them is too small for the lot and if anyone were to park there, it would most certainly jut out into the alley, and would block me from entering or exiting my driveway with my vehicle. What can I do to stop this? This will be a huge problem for us if they actually sell this space to some unsuspecting condo buyer.”

“This cooler weather has me craving Brunswick Stew again, and back home around this time of year, I could always count on picking some up at my or other local churches. I think some of the local clubs sold it also.

I’ve tried making it several times, but I can never get the recipe right, so I’ve accepted the fact that I should just go back to buying it.

Does anyone know of local churches or clubs who sell some amazing Brunswick Stew? Thanks!”
