ISO a cat back-up plan

desertrose
 

Hi --
 
My brother's girlfriend's adult son has run into difficulties and is changing living situations and cannot keep two cats that he has. I have been asked to take in the older (old ca. 18-19 y.o.) cat who I fostered for 9 months or so some years ago. I am willing to try but my own two cats are older in the meantime and developing issues and I'm just not sure if I can handle all of them. (In the past, the visiting cat Simba did not get on well with my two but spent most of his time in the basement where a roommate lives who grew to love him. Simba previously lived with other cats and I understand has been living with one other cat for the past few years.). 
 
So, I am wondering how difficult it might be -- in the event I try it and it just doesn't work out -- to find a place where this very nice and smart cat can live out his days with dignity. He is a cancer survivor but has no ongoing health issues that we know of but older cats can get some cognitive issues like people and I don't know much how he is doing in that regard. He is a happy cat who was adopted off the street and rolls with whatever life throws him.  
 
This is not an option I am *currently* intending to pursue -- it's just that I'd like to have a back-up plan in case things don't work out!
 
Thanks in advance,

FREE: Dog Bed/Mat #free

Scott Harris
 

We had a nice large dog bed/poofy mat made for our dog, Beau, to sit outside on the porch with us.  He never used it, preferring the stone floor. Sadly, Beau has now passed over the rainbow bridge, and we'd be happy to make it available to a doggy who might use it.

Hi all, We tried to go to the Cleveland Park Farmers Market this morning and, alas, there was no market today. Is the market still on at the Cleveland Park library as it was not there this morning?
Thanks for any insights.


Picture Frame Question

Scott Harris
 

We have two very fine, traditional, picture frames that we no longer use.  They may have been more valuable than the artwork.  Tossing them seems out of the question. Does anyone know of a place that would buy quality picture frames -- or have any other suggestions for finding them a good home?

Thanks for your help.

Hi neighbors- 
This Saturday (12/11) is the second to last week of the 2021 Cleveland Park Farmers Market season! Make sure to stop by the 3400 block of Connecticut Ave this weekend to stock up and check in with all your favorite vendors as to where to find them through the winter season. We'll be there from 9am til 1pm. 

This week's vendors: Kuhns Orchard, Garners Produce, Via Volcan, Chinese Street Market, VegHeaven, Panorama Bakery, Mastiha Greek bakery, Cold Country Salmon, The Juice Trap, and Roots and Shoots microgreens
That also means that this is the penultimate week of free compost drop-offs. Through the winter, the city-sponsored program is available at the Dupont and Palisades farmers markets on Sundays. Find more info on what and where to compost here. 
Immediately following the farmers market, we'll flip the same space into the much anticipated return of the Cleveland Park Holiday Market from 1:30 - 5:30. 
Hope to see you there!

Re: ISO PCR test for travel

Elaine Buck
 

Highly recommend getting tested at Dulles airport! You have to schedule but it maybe faster! I am taking home PCR test, Rapid antigen at CVS AND rapid PCR AT Dulles to cover all bases! It’s ludicrous that countries can’t agree on the correct test to take OR even the naming of tests. It’s a racket!  

Hope that helps

I know there has been quite a bit of discussion on this topic. I’ve been trying to sort through the responses but I would like to pose a question again. I need a PCR test for travel within 72 hours of the departing flight, which is on a Sunday afternoon.  This means that I cannot get the test earlier than Thursday afternoon. I previously got a PCR test at a CVS and got my results within about 26 hours, but I am concerned because of the weekend. I am going on a big trip and I can’t take a chance on having the test results be late. I know I may have to pay (rather than being covered by insurance as it was at CVS) to get the assurance of getting the results on time. I would appreciate any experience or suggestions you have.  Thank you


Knife and Tool Sharpening/Repair Service!

Julian Cunningham
 

Hello,

My name is Julian Cunningham, and I am a local college student. I have been sharpening/repairing knives and tools for people in the neighborhood for a number of years now, with great success and customer satisfaction. I am now back home from school for winter break and will once again be offering my knife and tool sharpening/repair service.

I will be offering my service from Today, Saturday, December 11-Monday, December 20. 

I can sharpen just about anything. In the past I have sharpened kitchen knives, scissors, garden shears, clippers, lawn mower blades (for both electric and push mowers), blender/food processor blades, and much more.

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. 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 [JCC.cutlery@... - JCC.cutlery @ gmail dot com], 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.

Turnaround time: I often can get knives sharpened within 24 hours of dropoff, but sharpening may take up to 3 days. 

For payment I accept cash, check, PayPal, or Venmo. I will bill you via email when your knives are ready to be picked up. 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.

Best,

Julian Cunningham

Re: ISO PCR test for travel

Joan Jorgenson
 

 
I have been in similar situations with travel to Canada that required PCR test results within 72 hours. In these situations, I have used Same Day (sameday-testing.com). You can go online to make an appointment.   They have offices in DC, MD, and VA, along with other states. They accept insurance; however, they charge an extra $75.00 to expedite the results. They say you will get the results within 16 hours - but typically I have received the results in about 8 hours via email. The Arlington Ballston Office has a code ARLINGTON20 that takes off $20.00 - so I usually pay 55.00 out of pocket. It has been worth the piece of mind.

Bon Voyage, Barbara!

Re: ISO first time sleepaway camp recommendations

aquint7 .
 

My daughter went to Laurel South for 4 or 5 years a very long time ago, until she was too old to go. She adored it. I agree it’s a beautiful campus. We were looking for a camp that had a one month option and a camp consultant recommended it. It had been started only a few years earlier by people associated with well regarded Camp Laurel in Maine, as an alternative to their more typical two month camp. We’d envisioned a typical sleepaway camp with basic cabins and a bit of a rugged feel. Unless it’s changed, Laurel South isn’t it. I recall being surprised by lobster as one of the menu options when parents went for pickup, and walking from the parking along with one of several well known Hollywood actors whose children also attended. It was a great camp and I’m not saying these things as a criticism but rather to convey the flavor, as it was quite different from what we’d expected.

Sonya,
You should check out Camp Laurel South! https://www.camplaurelsouth.com/
The camp is simply amazing - everything a child could want and more. Spectacular campus, amazing counselors, exceptional leadership, great food, wonderful campers and an excellent camp for a first-time camper. 
My child found out about the camp from looking online when my kid was 9 years old. As a parent it made me sick to my stomach to think about my “baby” going away to camp, but it was such a positive and empowering experience for my child that I have always been so glad my child went!
Also, as a first-time parent who had never gone to sleepaway camp myself, I had a million questions. The head of the camp (Roger) called me back personally and had an hour long conversation about everything. The personal touch and extremely thoughtful responses to my endless questions won me over. 
Check out Laurel South, you will be so happy you did!


Jewish Study Center program on Dec 15: Jews, Comics, and the Creation of the Superhero

Listserv Sponsor
 


Jews, Comics, and the Creation of the Superhero   

Visit www.JewishStudyCenter.org to register for the free Zoom class Jews, Comics, and the Creation of the Superhero  (21F4) scheduled for Wednesday, 15 Dec 2021 at 8-9:30 pm EST.

Come to the free Zoom class on Jews, Comics, and the Creation of the Superhero (21F4) on Wednesday 15 Dec 2021 at 8-9:30 pm EST.  Danny Fingeroth, the author of the definitive book on Jews and comics, Disguised as Clark Kent: Jews, Comics, and the Creation of the Superhero, will explore the backgrounds of the largely young American Jewish men from Eastern European backgrounds who created the most well-known superheroes who are so prominent in current popular culture, notably in movies such as Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Into the SpiderVerse.  Accompanied by an entertaining and informative PowerPoint slide show, Danny will discuss how the creators’ Jewish origins may have helped make superheroes the most familiar popular culture icons of all—on TV, in movies and electronic media, as well as in comics.

The Metamorphosis of the Kibbutz (21F5)

Then on SUNDAY, 19 Dec 2021 at 1:00 – 2:30 pm EST learn about how (and why) many Israeli Kibbutzim have undergone significant changes since their beginnings as democratic agricultural communities more than a century ago.  In this class from Israel, Prof Eliezer Ben-Rafael, an emeritus professor at Tel Aviv University and a former kibbutznik, will explore the fundamental question of whether kibbutz developments have led to a total erasure of the original collective experience or whether important components of the early vision still remain in force.
