End of the first period. Heading into the second ya gotta keep an eye on Isitt and Loveday. They're very aggressive on offence and can be very dangerous on the power play. Leonard Cole, he's a big guy, good on the block but he has to watch his more nimble opponents don't do an end-run around him.

Peter de Hoog. Does good work, cool, modern.

It's got a freaking dog wash. What more do you want.

What time did they start?

EDIT: The reason I ask is I just joined and want to know how much I missed.

Gotta love the visual aids brought by the tree lady.  :wacko:  Apparently, people only come to the CSV for the trees.

Trees? Trees need space. The Chestnut trees need more space. People need space. Think of the bike lanes.

A university professor doesn't like this.  That must mean it's bad.

So it was OK for trees to come down for her building. And she doesn't believe the 7 foot difference in height.

What's the cubic square footage of that?
