I never would have thought about touching this stuff until this past fall when everyone I was with at a party was appalled that I had never tried it. One bite and I was instantly transformed into a fan. If you are ever in Chicago and get an Italian beef sandwich – make sure to ask for it!

A few weeks ago A and I went on a special tour of Chicago given by Geoffrey Baer. If you are from this area – you know him from the WTTW tours of the city/suburbs. The weather was iffy – and we ended up driving home through tornadic conditions, but we had a great time. Check out the photos for a special tour of the city.

Jappler Recommends: Mr. Duct

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

After living in our home for over 5 years and having done some construction/having dogs and cats we decided to get our air ducts cleaned. I did some initial research last week and after talking to the people at Mr. Duct I decided to go with them. They were not the cheapest – but they had they were certified and took time to explain everything. The process itself took a few hours and was well worth it. Before the cleaning started – they put a camera into our ducts and showed us what they looked like (which was disgusting). After… Read More »

I am a Volvo fan tried and true. This morning I needed to go out. My Volvo was pretty buried from the Chicago blizzard (the snow was even packed tight in my wheel bases!). Without fail – I turned it on and backed right up, no problems. Thank you Scandinavia!

Growing up just south of Buffalo taught me quite a few things: How to always be able to start a snow blower The difference between “Upstate New York” vs. “Western New York” How to not root for the home team How to actually deal with snow Out here in Chicago I have seen a trend which I call the “ok – it is our turn for the big news story”. Chicago always prepares and hypes up all storms and then after all the schools close down in fear – we end up getting snow that is easily moved by using… Read More »

On the same note as my post las week “Time to Reconnect and Disconnect – I decided to take some time this past weekend to go golfing as well as to go to my first ever book signing: Alison Arngrim (actress who played Nellie Oleson on Little House on the Prairie) (one of my all time favorite shows). It was great to get out and enjoy the nice fall weather while golfing on my favorite course: Foxford Hills. While only my second time out all year (pathetic) – I did pretty well and came home excited to go out again… Read More »

Jappler Recommends: Patrick LandRover

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

If anything – I am a loyal customer. Once I find something I like and trust – I generally stay with it for the long haul. I have been nothing but happy with my Volvos and my Volvo service experience with Patrick Volvo in Schaumburg, IL. When it came time to upgrade our 2002 Land Rover Discovery – we decided to give the Patrick Land Rover dealer in Naperville, IL. Within moments of getting out of the car – we had a friendly salesman come over and not hassle or hurry us at all. He was extremely interested in buying… Read More »
