ISO Apple airpod charging case to purchase?


Hi all,

Before I spend a lot of money at the Apple store for a new Airpod charging case, I thought I would ask the listserv in case anyone might have an extra Airpod charging case. Since there are now various generations of the Airpods, it occurs to me that someone upgrading might have an extra at this point. I stupidly misplaced my charging case. I'm happy to pay a reasonable amount for the charging case. I think any generation of the charging case will do for my purposes, I do not necessarily need the version of the charging case that is wireless, though that should work as well if that happens to be what you have.  Please let me know.

He is clearly expert in his work, as well as gracious. Definitely 5 stars!" --M.A.

"....Here is another accolade for Tivoli Locksmith and Joseph. I called him this morning. He was already out on appointments but managed to accommodate me and my finicky tenant.The apartment door deadbolt was, according to Joseph, very old.

I had a bad experience with a chimney sweep last week. Can anyone recommend a chimney sweep? My wife and I built a lot of fires in 2020 and the chimney definitely needs to be cleaned.

Free: Nat Geo film strips, CD-Roms, twin mattress topper, small radio/tape/CD player #free #1a

Sue Ruff

Do you feel sentimental about National Geographic film strips? I have three I'm giving away. Also, two of the first CD-ROMS the Geographic produced.
Also, a twin-size mattress-topper that could be used on a bed but would also be wonderful as a floor-mat for toddler somersaults.
And a small radio - tape player - CD player with a remote.

ISO room to rent Dec 11-17


Old friends from Switzerland are coming to town from Dec 11-17 and would like help them find to rent a room in a private home or a studio. Chris and Aniko are a delight and would take excellent care of the place. I will forward them any offers.
Thank you!

ISO one-bed apt for second half of Dec


Hello neighbors,
My parents are visiting for 20 days around Christmas and I am looking for a one-bedroom apartment to rent for them to stay the entire time or part of it.
They are a very nice couple in their 80s that will take care of the place beautifully. They are both psychologists and very much missing their grandson, who they were not able to see for the past two years because of traveling restrictions imposed by COVID.
I'd appreciate any leads to anyone renting an apartment or even looking for a house-sitter. We live in Van Ness so any area nearby--Cleveland Pk, Woodley Pk, AU Pk, Tenleytown, Forrest Hills--would be ideal, although I'm already considering other neighborhoods at this point.

Thanks much,

Alton Pl 

Free Schwan's cookies and doughnuts #free


A family member surprised us with a Schwan's order of frozen peanut butter chocolate chunk cookies and cinnamon sugar doughnuts. Since our freezer is packed to capacity (and we're trying to stay in shape for our wedding), we want to give them to others so they don't go to waste.

Email me directly to pickup or have us drop-off the treats this weekend!


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

Klezmer Music – Listen to It and Learn Its History

Visit 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.

Re: ISO housecleaner

Hi Dan,
Our house cleaner Gloria Basauldo is very honest and cleans well. She has been cleaning for my husband Harry and now us for about 10 years. She is busy but can probably fit you in. Cell: 703-869-8530
Good luck,
Helen and Harry

We're looking for someone to clean our house every two weeks.
Is your housecleaner looking for another client? Are they honest and diligent? Are they fully documented?
We will pay competitively, and cover payroll taxes.
