I believe it's one of the largest butterfly blooms in the country. The Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha opened a butterfly exhibit in one of their zoo renovations 3 or 4 years ago, but it's only 1/3 to 1/2

Anyone notice we are quickly catching up to the Detroit forum in number of posts? Go Best Coast go. ;) I remember when it was just Allan and I and I decided to post anything and everything just hoping others would show up. I'm getting choked up... :)

Yah, it's interesting when you go back to the original posts back then to today:

It was like you and Allan were just having a conversation :P

Great job joe!

har, har, grdad!

But here's a real question:

How can I convert a (non-digital) photo of my house to use as my avatar? I'd much rather be represented by my own dear little chateau than the temple of some old dead fart. What do I need to do?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

The only way I know of is to scan the photo (Kinkos has one if you don't have access to one), and then that converts it to digital. If you have the original film, you may be able to have any photo processing center convert it to digital??

Good luck!

With new hotel rooms, new living spaces, and more entertainment options, the number of people downtown seems to be growing exponentially. Will we expect to see an increase in the number of taxis as well?

Right now, there really aren't many taxis around downtown as opposed to larger metros where it seems every other vehicle on the road is a taxi. I don't have any idea of current numbers, but just a thought...

Can someone, anyone, please cut the small tree that is draped over the sidewalk as you are walking into Ah-Nab-Awen Park from Pearl (by the Ford Museum Drive)?! I personally saw 4 or 5 people walk right into it during the walk on Saturday :unsure: I thought about taking a small saw down there myself, but thought I would get hauled off by the men in blue :P

What a beautiful dream; to step outside and hail a passing taxi, rather than phoning, dashing to the porch, then waiting 40 to 45 minutes.

I was in Norway this summer and they have a zero tolerance for drinking and driving. Have one drink and you can not drive. Even in the smaller cities there are taxies everywhere!

The GR Parks and Rec Department is in shambles. While they could be looking at a lawsuit with a low branch hitting someone in the head, don

Raindance completed, MJLO.

About park potties...yes, reahly, my deahs! Doggie and I attended the Humane Society Walkathon last Saturday, at John Ball Park. Using the little brick "facility" there is one small step up from camping! Guess we humans were lucky to at least have real toilet paper furnished, and not have to resort to oak leaves.

Would you guys find any value in having a City Profile section on this site? ironchapman (from the Georgia forum) and Allan over at Detroit have made these, and they did a great job! But there is no way on God's green Earth that I would have the time to put one of these together :w00t: There are sites like CityData that get big advertising bucks for these, so doing it for free seems silly. Anyone else want to take a swing at it?

Here is the Detroit one:

(every single entry has a link :blink: )

one for Savannah, GA:

and one for Atlanta:

http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=12836

Any thoughts?
