Cedar Ave

Cedar Ave is one of the main streets in South Minneapolis.  Unfortunately, over the years, it has become a main alternate route for people to drive into the city as well as to the MOA.  As a result, the traffic is horrendous, it is also unsafe in some areas, not bike or pedestrian friendly. Here is a group of residents in the South Minneapolis that are working with the county and city to correct these problems and also to promote local businesses in the area.  If you live in any of the neighborhoods adjacent to Cedar, I urge you to go check out CAU.  You can find more information at and .

Not much happening....

We have not had much happen on the home front.  I'm itching to get started with the work, but instead learning how to be patient  We were told last week that it would probably be 4-6 weeks before we closed on the loan!!!  Our contractor didn't sound too happy, but was OK with the time frame.  In the meantime, I keep looking around to see if there is anything I can do to start work.  We did the MS walk this morning and I'm a little sore.  I know I'm going to be hurting tomorrow. So starting next weekend I'm going to start by stripping off the ugly stick on tiles in our foyer and remove the old heating vent to the bathroom.  Then I may start moving some of the outlets and light fixtures upstairs to where we want them, but I may be getting a little ahead of myself.
