Not hot at all.  And I tend to sleep hot naturally (i.e., always trying to cool down).  Mind you, we're rocking pretty sweet central AC (which of course is now off), so it will be interesting to see how it will feel next summer.


I realized the other day that I no longer have to (eventually) roll onto my left side because of an achy right hip. This happened a few weeks after getting the Endy but I didn’t make the connection, I just... never had the discomfort again and stopped thinking about it.

Is the space adjacent to the candy shop (I think Tout de Sweet) occupied now then if only the waterfront space is left?

The new resteraunt, Cera, occupies the space next to the candy shop too.

Right, thanks. In my mind the candy shop had a spot to its right but I now realize that there isn't.

As someone that grew up with the Janion as a boarded up wreck, that photo really is a dream come true.

The life that the redeveloped Janion has breathed into this part of downtown makes all the delays on the Northern Junk project even more tragic.

Indeed, it’s an amazing achievement and one that is literally the symbol of everything this website’s membership fought for all those years ago.

Cheers to that.

A coworker of mine who's a relative of the owner of Cafe 1891 said that the plans are to dedicate a good chunk of the plaza to outdoor seating in peak season. I could see this ending up as a very dynamic public space once the remaining storefront in the Janion fills in and once the bridge underpass and Pearl Residences portions of the DF Walkway open up.

Imagine how dynamic this area will be in a generation or two when the Northern Junk project finally gets approved.
