The Parkway of Least Resistance Plan looks at four possible futures for the DVP. Do nothing? Build a subway? Make it a double decker? A group of architects and designers think it should be planted with grass and trees and a public transit networks built into it with pedestrian ad cycling paths. it seems like a wild idea, but it is a creative solution to a mounting problem.
In my piece about the dangers of streetcar tracks I look at some of the worst track areas for cyclists. We’ve also compiled a map of track related cyclist accidents, some were bloody wipeouts and others were lucky to only injure their pride.
In August I went to a round of storage auctions and got to see if there’s any truth to Storage Wars. There’s an excitement in the air every time they open a locker and everyone passes by to have a look inside. The bidding is when the fun begins, but it only last about 30 seconds, maybe a minute and then they move on to the next one. No one started a fight or even yelled in anger the whole time. The enthralling auction house drama of the A&E series had apparently set me up for disappointment. There wasn’t anything valuable either. Just a lot of dusty of furniture. Even still the quest for valuable relics and treasure continues for the auction buyers.
