London Road Area PDDers

My cat is missing. His name is Cuthbert Burbage and if you see him please contact me, Lawrence, at ironic1@ ironic1.com. He was last seen near the corner of London Road and 52nd Avenue East around 9:15 this morning. Thanks.

Update: He’s back! My neighbor saw him and let him back into my house while I was out!  Thanks for all who kept their eyes open!

Duluth Air Quality Survey

Did any of you get surveyed in the past couple weeks about air quality in our area?  I was wondering if anyone could confirm that this was legit.  I got a weird feeling about it and when asked for personal info I declined.  The survey seemed very weak on content and I was handed a very unprofessionally printed raffle ticket ($500 shopping spree or something like that) after answering a few questions.

This may not be really appropriate for PDD, but I didn’t know where else to ask.  Does anyone have any information regarding this survey?  The recent home break-ins mentioned in the DNT article “Duluth police: Watch neighbors’ homes,” seem well targeted and a door to door survey would be a great way to get a look inside peoples’ homes.

This is probably just paranoia (I recently had some stuff stolen from a car), but I thought it was worth asking.

Duluth Transmission Shop?

My clutch pedal started binding on the way to work today (lame). I haven’t had to have any transmission/clutch work done so I’m at a loss as to where to go. PDD, recommend me a shop!

Live Cuban music Tuesday at Carmody

Minnesota native Andrew Turpening has lived in Cuba and studied Afro-Cuban music at the National School of Arts in Havana. He’s pulled together some equally talented friends for a little benefit for the Pastors for Peace aid caravan/blockade challenge to Cuba. Expect Cuban standards (think Buena Vista Social Club), a little classic Argentinian music, and dance…

Creepy Crawlies


Hundreds of these guys are gobbling up the leaves on our boulevard tree. Help! Do we spray? Do we put our heads between our knees and wait for the Russian bomb?

What are they and what should we do?
