Let me join the chorus praising Julian's skills, promptness and proximity.  Bravo!  With the holidays and winter cooking at hand, do yourself a favor and get sharp!

I can attest to Julian's skills as a knife sharpener - and he even did a repair for me that I did not ask for.
Great service and very swift!

Hi,

For the last couple of months I have been sharpening and repairing knives and tools for people in the neighborhood. I have had a very positive response to my service so far, so I figured I would send out an email to let everyone know that I am once again offering my knife/tool sharpening and repair service. 
I charge $2 per inch of blade for sharpening non-serrated knives and tools(scissors, garden tools, etc.). Serrated knives are $2.50 per inch of blade (though I can only sharpen serrated knives if they have large, coarse serrations like a bread knife). Please note that because tools like scissors and shears have 2 blades, I charge $2 per inch, per blade.
If you are looking to get a knife or tool repaired or restored send me an email, let me know what’s wrong with it and I’ll give you an estimate. I can repair most knives and tools so feel free to reach out.
You can leave the knives and tools that you need sharpened on my porch in the box labelled "JCC Cutlery pickup/ dropoff". Be sure to text or email me after you drop off the knives so that I can take them in. I ask that you wrap your knives securely in a cloth or paper towel and put them in a bag with your name and number on it.
If you'd like to get your knives sharpened before Thanksgiving, I ask that you bring me your knives no later than Saturday morning around noon, in which case you can expect to have your knives sharpened by Monday. Otherwise, my turnaround time is 3-5 days for sharpening. 
For payment I accept cash, check, PayPal, or Venmo. I will bill you via text or email when your knives are done. Please be sure to let me know when you’d like to pick up your knives and tools so that I can leave your items on the porch for you to pick up. If you are paying with cash or check, put the money in an envelope and stick it through the mail slot.
If you are interested, please send me an email so that I can send you my contact info and address. Let me know if you have any questions - JCC.cutlery@... [JCC.cutlery @ gmail dot com].

Best,
Julian Cunningham

Wedding Dress to donate

Paul
 

Folks,

My wife has decided to give her wedding dress away in the hopes someone can use it. Were blessed with two boys...

It was made by Ellie’s Bridal in Old Town in 2003, immediately cleaned, sealed and stored properly and has been boxed ever since. We have not opened the box. It was stunning (admittedly I am biased) — simple and classic.

We researched potential donor organizations but in most cases they will not accept dresses older than five years. Goodwill is our final stop but we wanted to try locally first.

If you’re interested please let me know and I’m happy to leave it in our back alley to allow for contactless puck-up.

Best,
Paul

Coat Drive for Martha’s Table

Malia Brink
 

My daughter and I have been volunteering for Martha’s Table. Last weekend they had a winter coat distribution event. Before it was half over, they ran out of most children’s sizes and adult L/XL/PLUS. There is a real desperate need, so we thought we would try to collect coats for their next event.

We are putting a clear plastic bin outside our home in Burleith at 3632 Whitehaven Pkwy NW.

If you have an extra coat or coats - particularly a child’s coat or a XL or PLUS adult coat - please bring it by and we will bag it and bring it to Martha’s Table, where it will be quarantined and cleaned prior to their next event.

This community is always so generous! Thank you all so much in advance for your donations.

Boy Scout Troop # 1946 Christmas Tree Sale

Jeff Myers
 

Hi:
 
My son's NW DC Boy Scout Troop is offering to sell and deliver Christmas Trees, wreaths, and White House Christmas Ornaments. This sale is their only fund-raiser each year, and this is the first time they are offering to deliver trees to your Northwest Washington curb/porch (a contactless format, due to COVID). 
 
If you would like, you may order on the website that the scouts themselves created:
https://dctroop1946.wixsite.com/1946  
 
Apparently, there are a limited number of trees available, due to fewer trees being planted over the 2008-2012 "Great Recession," so it may be a good idea to order early. 
In any case, the scouts will make deliveries on Saturday, December 5th.
 
Best,
Jeff Myers

Wed, Nov 18 @ 7pm: Military Service and Americanization: Jewish Immigrants in 3 Wars

Listserv Sponsor
 


Military Service and Americanization:
Jewish Immigrants in Three Wars
Wednesday, November 18, 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

Free with registration at www.jewishstudycenter.org
Instructor: Michael Rugel

Many Germans and Central European Jews who came to America inspired by the failed European revolutions of 1848 ended up fighting in the Civil War. Later, many Eastern European immigrants who came to the US to escape pogroms and avoid military service in the Russian Empire, volunteered or answered the draft call during World War I without complaint. Similarly, Jewish Europeans who came to the U.S.to escape Nazi persecution often returned to Europe in World War II as American soldiers eager to fight. Young men and women in each of these groups of immigrants would end up making significant contributions to the American military in wartime and the military offered a rapid Americanization process for these newcomers, unlike any other.

Michael Rugel is the Programs and Content Coordinator at the National Museum of American Jewish Military History (NMAJMH).  Prior to that he served on the museum’s collections management staff. He frequently writes about Jews in the American military and has produced a series of videos about them, including descriptions of World War II experiences of American Jewish liberators of concentration camps. He regularly gives presentations about the history of Jews in the American Military at museum programs as well as to local schools, synagogues, community centers and veterans’ groups.
Rugel also appeared in the PBS documentary film GI Jews: Jewish Americans in World War II. His writing regularly appears in the Jewish Veteran magazine and in the NMAJMH website.

All classes are free and on Zoom. Register to receive the link: www.jewishstudycenter.org

Found - then escaped! - Missing white fluffy cat (maybe Persian?) #found #lostandfound

Brinkley Tappan
 


Found a very fluffy white cat with blue eyes and no collar this morning. I put it in my fenced backyard and was trying to keep it back there until someone claims it. However, the fluffy cat must be a good climber. It absconded from our back yard but is probably still somewhere nearby. 35th and Macomb around 7:45 am. 

Thanks,
Brinkley

Hurricanes: Past, Present and Future

Speaker - Dr. D. James Baker, the longest-serving Administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) (1993-2001), will recap the 2020 hurricane season and use examples of notable hurricanes from the past to explain what we know and don’t know now about predicting their path and strength. He will conclude with a discussion of what we can expect in the future as climate change provides a more energetic context for these disastrous events. Dr. Baker appeared on CNN during last hurricane season chastising President Trump for a baseless alteration of the predicted track of hurricane Dorian.
 
Dr. Baker trained as a physicist, practiced as an oceanographer, and over his long career has held leadership positions in academia, non-profits and foundations, and the U.S. government. Among these are as President of the Academy of Natural Sciences, Philadelphia’s Natural History Museum, and Dean of the College of Ocean and Fishery Sciences at the University of Washington in Seattle.  He has advised the United Nations through the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, World Meteorological Organization and Food and Agriculture Organization. He was awarded the Vikram Sarabhai Medal by the Government of India for “outstanding contributions to space research in developing countries,” and is a Fellow of the American Meteorological Society.  He is the author of the book Planet Earth: The View from Space, published by Harvard University Press.  He holds a B.S. in physics from Stanford University, a Ph.D. in physics from Cornell University, and three honorary degrees. He is currently helping developing countries monitor landscape use and protect their rainforests by providing technical assistance and access to satellite data.
 
Dr. Baker lives in Northwest Washington, DC with his wife, Emily.

ISO Nonomura Studios

Jeffrey Kaye <j1kaye@...>
 


I have been trying to reach Nonomura Studios to do some repair on several antiques without any response.

This is the antique repair craftsman that was located on Connecticut Avenue at Ordway for many years and supposedly moved to Virginia (Chantilly perhaps).

Twice I have left voice mails at the number given on their website 202 363 4025 and twice I have sent emails to nonomurastudios@... 

Does anyone know if they are still in business? Their phone and email are active.

Thanks,

Re: ISO chimney inspection

Kristina Kern
 

All,

 

I wanted to share an amazing experience I had with Lalonde Chimney & Home Services. I contacted him and within 1.5 weeks he was at my home performing a very thorough inspection of our three chimneys. He was efficient (brought a mentor/apprentice), clean, articulate and boy does he know his stuff. His pricing is way better than Priddy, who I had used in years past.

 

Bottom line is I cannot say enough about how pleased I am with his services.
