Where I Worked For Many Years

During most of the 1980's and 1990's I worked in this community. To give you an idea of the length and breadth of the Chicagoland area this area of Chicago is considered part of the North Shore area (meaning north of the City of Chicago close to or along Lake Michigan). To get to Northbrook from downtown Chicago one would take the Kennedy Expressway to the Edens Expressway to approximately Lake Cook Road. Depending on the traffic this trip can take anywhere from 25 minutes to ????

I live in a southwestern suburb called Naperville, really an entire community by itself with close to 150,000 residents. Commuting to my job in Northbrook from Naperville was about a 43 mile one way trip and could take anywhere from 50 minutes to ???? I don't miss that ride.

    I may have to give that a try the next time we are up that way. Seems like we are always going to the same 2-3 restaurants!
