Random Reader Rant and/or Revel

You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. I’ll open this thread every Monday and Friday. So anything good happen to you this week?

Rant – I always fall for at least one April Fool’s joke. Every year I say – I’m not falling for one this year. And every year I fall for one. This year was my record – I fell for one before 10am (fake free pizza at Rustik). Dang it!

Rant – More houses are getting broken into:

“Wanted to put this out there for local residents: yesterday morning a home was broken into on New Hampshire Ave just off Grant Circle. The burglar beat down the front door and went inside the house (uncertain what, if anything, was stolen), but apparently ran off before the police arrived. This is the second time this method of forced entry has been used to break into a house on this block in six months–both occurred in the morning after most people were gone for work. Please remind area residents to be observant when coming and going from their homes, and definitely alert neighbors and/or police of suspicious activity. Also, make sure you know who your neighbors are. In the incident yesterday, no one on the block even knew the homeowners well enough to know how to contact them.”

Rave – There is a huge tree blossoming outside my window that makes me smile every time I look up.

Rant/Rave – so many good cherry blossom photos in the PoPville flickr pool that I’m having a very tough time picking which ones to post! (But keep ’em coming!)
