Let’s Do The Time Warp Again

S

ummer has a seductive way of warping both space and time. In its best moments, when leisure beckons, it’s easy to ease into that sunny porch swing and watch the flowers grow and bathe in summer’s warm glow. Time melts, like Salvador Dali’s watch. In its lesser moments, experience has convinced me that pushing that lawnmower in a muggy, 90-degree heat will actually double the square footage of yard that you need to mow.  It’s a scientific fact.  At least, it feels like it must be. This summer month I’ve been privileged to journey vicariously through several centuries right here from within the warm summer confines of SW Lake County, in the cause of bringing you our readers this issue. I walked across a century-old, single-lane bridge being considered for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places, but is also in danger of replacement.  In Parting Thoughts, Ryan Messmer, President of the Historic Downtown Long Grove Business Association, tells us its story. I walked a cemetery with three centuries engraved in its stones, and visited its neighboring church sanctuary built in the mid-1800’s that still holds regular services today longer than any church in Lake County. Through my camera’s lens and Marissa Plescia’s pen, you too can be ushered into a visit to Long Grove Community Church in our first of a new recurring feature on local places of worship.  Although reputedly not a cave man (that’s my story and I’m sticking to it), I do enjoy chilling in a good Man Cave. Marissa Plescia introduces us to a local company that specializes in the coolest of custom ‘Caves.  And finally, SW Lake Lifestyle is happy to invite you to a very special pre-season event with the Windy City Bulls, the G League team of the Chicago Bulls. It’s a great chance to learn more about this terrific organization while shooting buckets on the Sears Centre floor, enjoying great food and drink and meeting some of the retired stars from Bulls championship teams. See more details on page 12 and register online for this free event. A suggestion: pour yourself a fine beverage, walk out to that porch swing, bring our magazine along, and enjoy the trip!

Fall is a good time to plant trees and shrubs, when roots can get established before winter’s cold weather. Native trees and shrubs provide the best choices of woody plants because they absorb storm water, can survive our extreme temperatures, don't need fertilizer or insecticides and need watering only during the first year or two to get established. To order, go to CitizensForConservation.org where there are

folks all over SW Lake county can enjoy a brand new custom look that transforms their garage from mundane car-closets into a magnificent man-space. Tim Meade, the owner of both AGFS and the business Reflections in Glass, has been working in the garage renovation business for nine years. He'd always had an interest in working with garage spaces, and after doing some research, decided it would make a great fit in which to develop his expertise and invest his career. AGFS and Reflections in Glass is a family business, as Meade works with his wife, his two sons, and his daughter in law. All told, they’ve all been working together in the business for a little over 15 years. “They all do an excellent job, and we work together to get everything done,” Meade said.
