I have often thought Windsor is the ideal bargain place to live in Detroit. Beyond it own terrific options, it offers dramatic skyline views, and a short hop to major league sports, world class art and cultural institutions. I always recommend Windsor as an option for people who ask me for Metro-Detroit relocation advice.

The National Post agrees in this absolutely gushing thumbs-up "Sneer all you want, Vancouver and Toronto: Windsor, Ontario’s recession ravaged rust-belt city is turning into the country’s hottest real estate play" directed toward the inflated real estate markets of Vancouver and Toronto. Interestingly the article does not even touch on the selling points of its 'big city' assets across the river or that one is even in view [for a while at least] of the home of one of hockey's most legendary teams.

Were I younger and looking to relocate to Detroit, I would look long and hard at Windsor, particularly now with Canadian loonie at around 77 cents to USD.

In the shadow of the Ambassador Bridge in Windsor lie the controversial and doomed houses of 'Morounville'. The properties along the east side of Indian street have been acquired for future demolition by the Ambassador Bridge company, owned by the American Moroun family, to make way for a hoped-for new bridge crossing of the Detroit River.





The steeple of Our Lady of the Assumption can be seen behind this abandoned beauty.










The Ambassador Bridge company has already built the Windsor side footing.




Drive 'Morounville' along Indian Street on Google Street View.

Anyone know what happened to the original house? William Andrew Fisher 19013 Parke Ln, Grosse Ile, by Richard H. Marr. The original pool house still stands with its Pewabic tiles plus new additions(per the Michigan film industry the additions were by Frank L. Wright). Current house built for Heinz Prechter. It was designed by Don Paul Young. His brother Charles also built a summer home here which still stands. Not sure were it is. Maybe the next door Cotswold like house? I have photos of the original white-sided Colonial house, pool house/garage/staff quarters and dock(also per the largest private dock in Michigan).

Remember when Bardarbunga was keeping us all on the edge of our seat last summer? She is definitely waning, though she contributed to the deaths of thousands of sheep. Now Hekla wants to join the fun. This article is Google translated from DV News. http://www.dv.is/frettir/2015/7/30/h...dad-flugvelum/

Hekla lies below a major flight path.

This is stated in the newspaper today. Paul says:
"That fly out of 20-30 planes a day. They are in danger of landing in strokes when he comes. Hekla do not need to spend any energy to melt through the ice so that the clouds of ash will rise immediately with full power and go up to ten miles tall, up to veðrahvörfum. "

Hekla has arrived on time and according to Paul context that the eruption will be very short:

"Hekla in the next game and the context that it will be very short. The prelude to the eruption will be barely more than half an hour or an hour. "

Hello,

This is a long shot, but I am a professional Artist with a business development background. I am currently residing in Texas...doing commissions, public murals and showing Art at various Art fairs, as well expanding into community based projects.

I'm looking to explore moving to Detroit. I know maybe but two people there and other than that I don't know the extent of opportunity, living, etc... Is Detroit the spot. Is it a place looking for good, hardworking people to be a part of its new growth?

I am looking for something a bit different in life these days. Community oriented, collective growing, creative thinking...looking to apply, expand on all my experience and fully emerge myself within an environment on a longterm basis and give my understanding of Arts and life. Its really all about love.

If anyone out there feels like connecting, please reach out. My skills are in Art, business development, art sales, art supply sales, store set-up, merchandising, food and beverage sales, culinary.

For hobbies I enjoy gardening, cooking, making electronic music, working in other mediums besides paint.
Attachment 27591

Its beautiful to be doing Art. So whats up Detroit.

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2015/0...r-help-ignored

From DK article:

The ugly American secret has been exposed. All across the country, women and men are dying in police custody and have been by the thousands every year. Four days before Sandra Bland was arrested in Waller County, Texas, a 24-year-old American Indian woman of the Lakota tribe, Sarah Lee Circle Bear of Clairmont, South Dakota, was arrested on a simple bond violation.

Witnesses stated that before being transferred to a holding cell, Circle Bear pleaded to jailers that she was in excruciating pain. Jail staff responded by dismissing her cries for help, telling her to “knock it off,” and “quit faking.” Inmates cried out for the jail staff to help Circle Bear, to which they eventually responded by picking her up off of the floor, dragging her out of the cell, and transferring her to a holding cell. Circle Bear was later found unresponsive in the holding cell.

I find this article about Detroit's bonds used to exit bankruptcy interesting for several reasons including certain things related to Detroit's financial outlook:

http://www.detroitnews.com/story/new...ting/30835941/

1). Monies to pay the P&I on these bonds will come from city income taxes which are directly deposited with the trustee. That's about as good as it gets for the trustee who is responsible to the bondholders. They're solid.

2). Not really related to the monies to pay the P&I, but tax revenues have increased the last four years. That is good news. Would like to know more. How much more: 2%? 5%? 10%?, etc. Some cities and states are seeing significant increases in revenues. D.C. and the Commonwealth of Virginia are two I'm familiar. I understand general fund revenues for the state of MI are up significantly.

3). Monies will be used to improve the financial management system and police and fire fleet. All valuable infrastructure and governance needs.
