We all know Movement, the Techno music fest in Hart Plaza for memorial day. I've spent years thinking that Detroit never had any MAJOR fests (like Lollapalooza in Chicago), but mannnn was I wrong. Apparently Movement is so LARGE and POPULAR, they've had pre parties in Los Angeles, San Fran, Toronto, Vancouver, even cities in Mexico. Isn't that awesome?! This year is my first year going, so I'm looking forward to it.:p:p

I bet you were thinking something different. I am only pointing this out as evidence that the culture of violence is growing and that even places like Chicago, which has been considered the Golden City of the Great Lakes for the last few decades is not immune from the violence bug.

Yes we have it bad, but so does everyone else. We need to expect more from not only ourselves, but of our leaders.

Was cruising around town the other day and decided to go down the streets of Indian Village. It looks like it is still being kept up these days. Had some questions though, how is the crime around/in the neighborhood? A lot of the houses don't look like they have bars over windows and doors etc. I noticed some of the residents were out taking care of the yard and fixing up some things, it seems like it's a decent area where neighbor's look out for eachother, would that statement be true?

On the roof of the building at the northwest corner of Grand River Avenue and Lahser Road is a huge abandoned billboard. There seems to be at least three different ads (and even parts of a "for lease" sign) on it and there's also a nameplate scar that's rectangular, indicating it might've belonged to either Gannett Outdoor, Eller Outdoor or (albeit unlikely) 3M National. Does anyone remember how this billboard suddenly became abandoned and started falling apart from neglect?

I wonder how Metro-Detroit suburbs get their names? What conflicts or ideals that lead to such wonder or weird names?

Here is an example?

Southfield got its name out from its township. Most people want to name the city Ossewa. To them it didn't sound right. So South was named

Any thoughts?

Ok. Now that it's Spring when will construction begin on the lightrail? I had thought something was being done on Woodward last week with all of the orange barrels but the turn out to be another patching job. I don't want to hear that construction will start late spring or summer. We were sold that line of bullshit last year

Have an opportunity for a job, that is actually in Canada - So i'd be commuting every day but want to stay state side. So based off what I've googled so far it's Grosse Pointe / surrounding... But thought this group could weigh in. Realizing anywhere I choose is going to be a commute- I don't think I could transition our family into metro.

two kids and wife and we'd be coming from rural South Dakota. Quite a change.

So here are all the things we'd love to know exist.

Good Schools, Colleges that have a post secondary psychology program for my wife, decent space to lease for her yoga/massage/mindfulness business, low crime obv, bjj/mma gym, decent food joints, - and just generally a nice place to live like everybody wants...

We're 1/2 hippy, 1/2 greedy capitalist pigs. Where to we go?

Thx Detroit,

abused children http://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?18309-abused-children&goto=newpost Tue, 22 Apr 2014 01:43:22 GMT
This is a Detroit issue. We try very hard to do projects with area kids. Can't do it 24/7. Lately we have two sisters who never leave. Guessing some home issues. We are not exciting people but I guess our home is calm and quiet.

Just now I checked to make sure all doors and windows were closed down. Our front yard is well lighted and I see I have a kid sitting on my steps. My dogs are not fond of kids so I secured them and came back. She was gone. I know who she is and walked to the street. It sounded like she was being beaten with a belt. My vision is poor but my hearing is just fine.

It is such a dilemma for me, foster care sucks but if there is real abuse I should do something. I just don't know what! I wish she had knocked on the door. I would have taken her in and called authorities. Very conflicted!

my wife was 14, playing soccer in europe and because of the way you dribble with the inside of your foot, and you kick with the inside of your foot (often hence the term soccer-style kicker for NFL kickers vs those who kick straight on) she blew up as in completely shattered her knee cap in her left leg...

the socialized medicine got her 'repaired' but it was sketchy at best requiring total knee replacement at age 35 (but thats another story)...
