Happy 1st of May from Chicago!

Chicago L-Train
Originally uploaded by joeycerone
So as I suspected conferencing it up in Chicago from Tuesday to Thursday has kept me pretty occupied with little time to frequent Facebook, blog, tweet and the like. However, I have genuinely missed our ecoExchanges, ie... YOU!

My favourite thing about Chicago thus far? The L-Train! Actually the CTA to be more exact.

I honestly can't believe it's been six years since my last visit to the wonderful Windy City, and while I love love LOVE the architecture, the fabulous food (Chicago is most definitely a foodie city!), the energy, and of course the people... I am absolutely impressed with the city's public transportation!

From O'Hare Airport to downtown to north-east Chicago to downtown to Elmhurst and Arlington Heights, and so and so on... Kudos to Chicago for having reliable and efficient public transportation system.

I look forward to the day when I can say Toronto's TTC is at such calibre! For although there are exciting new streetcar announcements abound, Toronto's still got a while to go!

All right... So it's nearly noon here and since I've been busy conferencing away at the beautiful Chicago Cultural Centre, I haven't had a chance to do much wandering and exploring yet... Therefore, please forgive me for delaying picking a new ecoAgenda winner till I fly back to Toronto on Monday.

Yup, that's right, since January Giveaway Winner Lora never claimed her prize... I promise to pick a new winner from one my hats late Monday afternoon. Say 4ish?

Didn't participate in my Jan Giveaway? Or want to add another entry?

No problem! As an added bonus to you for reading today's post... Simply comment below with something that made you smile this week and I'll add that entry to the hat on Monday too for your chance to win an ecoAgenda!

My Renewed (Recycled?) January Giveaway Contest to run till Monday afternoon when I pick out a winner!

Can't wait to hear about the things (eco and non-eco) that made you smile this week!

Happy First Weekend of May, my dear ecoFriends! I'll be sure to blog more about my visit to Chicago next week with lots of pics!

Seeing all the batches of beer I had started with my (college) students the day before happily bubbling away! Made ME smile!

Finding your blog made me smile. I saw one of your notebooks at Archiver's a few weeks ago and fell in love with the beautiful artwork on the cover. But I was in a hurry and on a mission to buy something else, so I forgot to write down the name of your company. I was so bummed that I didn't know who made that cool notebook I saw, so imagine my surprise and delight when I discovered your blog while web surfing this week. : )
