    After my explorations of Windsor on October 17, 2008 I headed over to Detroit where I embarked on a driving tour with Jeanette Pierce, co-founder of Inside Detroit, a non-profit organization that offers a wide range of thematic tours of Detroit. From Stroh River Place, a mixed-use development of converted Victorian warehouses, we headed to Belle Isle, Detroit's urban island and leisure playground. After a visit to the upscale Indian Village and the Gleaner Food Bank, an example of urban farming, Jeanette took me to the Heidelberg Project, an outdoor art installation that features painted houses and artistic compositions made of discarded items. Artist Tyree Guiton originally conceived this project in the mid 1980s as a protest against the deterioration of his childhood neighbourhood. We...

  • The Mutants band at the Old Miami club in Detroit

    The Mutants are live at The Old Miami club in Detroit. This set was recorded in 1979 at a local-music club on Cass Avenue, in the heart of Detroit, and still open for live music. The Mutants may have been the best rock band to come out of Detroit's Punk & New Wave scene of the late '70s and early '80s. They played hard-edged pop/rock with smart, snotty, and politically incorrect lyrics. The band cut two classic singles and a few compilation tracks before its original lineup splintered in 1981. George Clinton produced an album for the band that was never completed. You will see and/or hear the group's original lineup -- Art Lyzak on vocals, Tom Morwatts on guitar, Pasadena on guitar and keyboards, John Amore on bass, and Steve Sortor on drums.

Outdoor Patio Furniture Stores Detroit - http://www.homeleisure.com/patio-furniture/collections or call ☎ 734-838-6555 ☆ Tips For Selecting Outdoor Patio Furniture, Patio Sets on Sale - Great Prices, Huge Selection Allstate Home Leisure, a 4-store retailer selling outdoor patio furniture, game rooms, fireplaces, hot tubs, wood stoves, inserts, pool tables, and billiard tables in the Metro Detroit area publishes “Tips for Selecting the Right Patio Furniture.” Roy Farmer, President of Allstate Home Leisure said, “The right patio design can easily transform even the smallest outdoor area into a relaxing retreat for family and friends.” Here’s how to renew limited outdoor space with the perfect patio design. Choose Multi-functional Pieces - When space is limited, a trendy bistro set is the perfect solution for outdoor dining. A chic table with a tall umbrella adds height, creating the illusion of a larger patio. Pieces that add function and form, or multifunctional pieces make the most of limited outdoor areas. Materials Matter - One way to avoid feeling cramped is to choose metal furniture, like iron, which is sturdy, durable and compact for tight spaces. Powder coated steel and pieces with clean, tight lines fit better and look more inviting in smaller areas. Think about materials carefully and choose pieces that are low profile, but big on use. Add Visual Interest - Another trick for maximizing small patio space has to do with visual interest. Complementary greens and natural shades enhance outdoor space, while glass top tables create the illusion of more visual space. The key to maximizing a small patio is to outfit the space with the perfect Detroit patio furniture and accessories. Choose multifunctional pieces that can be used in a variety of ways, opt for clean, streamlined pieces constructed of metal, and add visual interest and dimension with a creative focal point. The smallest patio space can come alive with strategic planning, a little creativity and the right eye for design. To learn more about the benefits of owning new patio furniture and why it’s a smart, practical investment that’s sure to bring out the smiles in everyone, just visit the company website.

In the evening I enjoyed a tasty seafood dinner at Sindbad's Restaurant which has a great location right on the Detroit River. The Blancke family has been running this restaurant since 1949.

EUROPE: Finnish company Nokia moves its factory from Germany to Romania, putting over 2,000 employees out of work. Germany workers are protesting, but in Romania many welcome the move.
