Blog subscription test repeated


Lawrence Avenue

You’re receiving this test because you’ve subscribed to the blog about my old neighborhood, Hollywood Park, and the surrounding neighborhoods from Albany Park to Peterson Park.

Last week I sent out a test to see if the new service for blog subscriptions was working. It wasn’t, so I’m trying this again. In the past I used feedburner to allow readers to receive the blogposts by email.  Google is no longer providing support for feedback, so I’ve switched over to Mail Chimp to provide email subscriptions of my blogposts.

As before, you can opt out of subscribing at any time.  And hopefully this will be the final test.

    I was just wondering if you have your all your pictures posted like on Flickr or some other site?

    Every time I see a picture of Lawrence Avenue back in the days, it is like returning home again. Since I now live in Florida and have not been back to Chicago in many years, it really feels good. Thanks for the post and keep them coming!

    Thanks, Harriet! Found it on facebook.

  20. Frances Archer April 30, 2013 at 8:54 pm #

    Chris, I switched because I was having problems with feedburner and learned that Google no longer provides any backup or support for feedburner.

  21. Frances Archer April 30, 2013 at 8:56 pm #

    Carl, thank you! I love hearing everyone’s old stories. Brings the neighborhood back to life.

  22. Frances Archer April 30, 2013 at 8:57 pm #

    Rosie, thank you! Of course, I’ve learned that people who grew up in many different neighborhoods in Chicago all have similar memories … the corner candy store, lighted school house, clubs, etc. Hope all is well.

    Gary, thanks for letting me.

    Hi, Ben. Looks like everyone got the blog, so we’re in business. I owe you a call — it’s been one thing after another. When my daughter goes away to sleep away camp, I’ll catch up with my blog.

  26. Carol Saper Barstow May 4, 2013 at 5:40 am #

    Was working in the neighborhood last year, and the once thriving Bryn Mawr area had changed. All that I remember was Davis Imperial Cleaners…BTW, I just received an e-mail about a January 1965 class reunion…I believe we had only 75 graduates..

  31. Frances Archer July 9, 2013 at 9:29 pm #

    Hi, Ira. That was a really small class. Bryn Mawr has changed. The other long time business is Biltmore Cleaners on the north side, next to the gas station that was Milt and Morrie’s Shell. Thanks for stopping by.

    Hi Frances, hope all is well with your blog. I really enjoy it…..Howard

    I was in that von steuben graduating class of jan. 1965….I remember Ira Baygood and his cousin Chuck….his mother |Muriel and his grandmother Mrs, Paradise … His father Bernie was wine steward at the old Chez Paree night club…he lived on the 5800 block of north Drake… I sure would be interested in our 50th reunion information… please forward this to me at your convenience….

  34. Ben Kirman July 12, 2013 at 5:48 pm #

    Hi, Larry. Thanks for stopping by. I don’t have any information on your reunion, but if anyone does, please send a note and I can post it on the Von Steuben Alumni Association website too.

    Keep up the great work and keep me in the loop (and I don’t just mean the one with the train on it;>).

  37. Frances Archer October 27, 2013 at 12:23 pm #

    Hi, Barbara! So nice to hear from you. Will always keep you posted! You would have enjoyed the gathering at Max and Benny’s a few weeks ago.
