ISO scuffle hoe (to borrow for tomorrow) + tool-sharing group

Ian B
 

Hi CP listserv,

Does anyone have a scuffle hoe (like this) I can borrow for some yard work tomorrow (Thursday) morning?  My partner and I are very new to home ownership and don't have garden tools yet. Happy to leave something with you as collateral.

On a related note, we're interested in joining or starting a neighborhood tool-share (especially in the North Cleveland Park / Tenleytown area). If you know of any existing tool-share groups or want to be part of one, please get in touch! We're on Veazey between Reno and Wisconsin.

Re: ISO Mohs Surgery Surgeon Recommendations

Stephanie Gerard
 

Dr M was the surgeon for my Mohs job (yes, it was on my nose). All went well, excellent overall experience. The worst part was stopping at Starbucks afterwards, with frontal bandage and trying to stay casual about it like a cool zombie. Happened to be near Halloween, too.

I can highly recommend Dr Montemarano. I do not have enough positive things to say about him as a physician and the experience I had in his office. Dr M relates so well with his patients, has a wonderful supporting staff and post procedure instructions and follow up were also perfect. You can read some of the 5 star reviews and I agree with them.

Re: ISO electrician for minor repair

Cindy Sherman
 

Donte Washington is a master electrician. 301-357-6421. We’ve been very happy with his work over the past few years. He’s done minor repairs to landscape lighting for us. I also find his rates to be very reasonable.

Re: What is being done to inform landscapers about the law banning gas-powered leaf blowers in January?

Christopher -

The regulation is year-round, for any gas-powered blower, and is not based on sound levels (dB(A)) caps. In fact, if you look up the DC noise law which has been in effect for almost 30 years, leaf blowers over 70db(A) are *already* banned. But this law is not enforced. Our new law will be enforced via the DCRA website I mentioned in my previous post.

Here's our new law: https://www.scribd.com/document/390990052/B22-234-Leaf-Blower-Regulation-Amendment-Act-of-2018   

For fun, check out this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0RGY6OW6-3I

I've posted our English and Spanish flyers before, and here they are again.

Thanks,

Re: What is being done to inform landscapers about the law banning gas-powered leaf blowers in January?

j03y_
 

My group, https://www.quietcleandc.com, has been busy informing landscapers about this law for well over two years. We snail-mailed all local landscapers on our list of landscapers almost two years ago. And I personally have emailed, mailed, and spoken to every landscaper I've encountered over the past 2+ years. I've also posted information about the law on nextdoor.com and this listserve multiple times.

A tremendous amount of time and energy has already been expended informing landscapers about the regulation change.

Re: enforcement mechanism, the mechanism will be the DCRA and a webpage - that they will create and publish beginning in January. In addition, the DCRA has mailed landscapers as well.

Also, you may have missed the DOEE's email of July 1, 2021 at 9:32:10 AM EDT: Its trivia question at the bottom of the email was:

"When will gas-powered leaf blowers be banned in the District?"    

Earlier, the DOEE's email of June 3, 2021 at 9:01:27 AM EDT: 

NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS
BAN ON GAS POWERED LEAF BLOWERS
In December 2018, Mayor Bowser signed a bill banning the use of gas-powered leaf blowers in the District. The law will go into effect in 6 months, on January 1, 2022. What does this mean for residents and lawn care providers? Beginning in 2022, “no person shall sell, offer for sale, or use, at any time, gasoline-powered leaf blowers” in the District. You don't want to get caught using a gas-burning blower and exposing yourself to the penalty; violations can be reported by any observer filing a complaint with the enforcement agency. Violators will be subject to a maximum $500 fine. Prepare for the new law this summer and explore the electric alternative!
Interested in learning more about the Act and its background? Visit QuietCleanDC.com.

And finally, this is from my communication with the DCRA in June of this year:   

Communication to landscape companies and District hardware stores that sell gas-powered leaf blowers already began in May. We will be doing greater public communication about this in late 2021 as we get closer to the law going into effect.

Once the law goes into effect in January 2022, DCRA will have a form on our website where the public can report violations – the first step in addressing those not in compliance. As long as the required evidence is included in the form submission, DCRA will issue a Notice of Infraction.

Thanks,
Joey S

KN95 masks for kids should do the job. They will have pinchable nose pieces. And many of them also have adjustable ear loops.

My wife was referred to Dr. Hendi. We were very pleased with his skill and overall procedure. From the research we did, he seems to be the go-to guy in the DC/Maryland area.

I think every procedure and area involved has its own considerations.
Everything came out A-OK.

Hi, neighbors,
I'm hoping someone has a recommendation for a solar installer who will work with slate roofs? We went through Energy Sage, but the bids we got were from companies who said they wouldn't install on slate. I know it's possible, just an extra hassle so many companies don't bother.


Re: ISO New York accommodations - help!

Lisa Buono
 

Hi Mary,

I don't know if this is too casual for you all but in September a member of the listerv said they stayed at the West Side Y, at 5 W 63rd for different times over 20 or so years. It’s like a hostel and her message said it was a great location accessible to Broadway that you can walk there in about a half hour, saying that the Y is clean and the rooms are adequate in size and thought it was about $120 or so for a double, it books up fast, and calling asap was recommended of course at this number (212) 912-2600‬. It's worth a try I imagine and I had saved the posting for future reference, so I just copied the above information.

Lisa Buono!

I’m looking for accommodations in NYC on the nights of December 2, 3 and 4 and I wonder if anyone has ideas or leads? My daughter booked the trip as a birthday surprise for her boyfriend and now finds the prices are insane. They’re a mature and responsible couple, very sweet, and looking for something reasonable. She’d be happy to find an apartment, hotel or perhaps a room in a place, all suggestions welcome and very much appreciated!

Jewish Study Center program: Klezmer Music – Listen to It and Learn Its History

Klezmer Music – Listen to It and Learn Its History

Visit www.JewishStudyCenter.org to register for the free 2-session Zoom class American Klezmer Music (21F2) scheduled for Wednesday, 20 & 27 Oct 2021 at 8-9:30 pm EDT.

Klezmer, which literally means “tool of song” in Yiddish, is the secular folk music of the Jews of Central and Eastern Europe.  In the first decades of the 1900s, this music flourished not only in the Old World but also in the New, in the immigrant community of New York City.  There, the sounds of the European “fiddler on the roof” mixed with the sounds of early jazz and Tin Pan Alley.  The result was a quintessentially American sound.  These presentations will trace the history and evolution of this music, from the Old World to the New, up until the present day and the modern klezmer revival.  Vintage audio clips and "live" performances from Seth Kibel, the instructor and one of the Mid-Atlantic’s premier woodwind specialists, will make this program as exciting as the music itself.
