The giant bird feeder is getting bigger.  I wonder how long this will be here before the home owner decides to pick the stuff up?  Rats like this stuff. I will keep you posted. Trash in context. Be nice if someone graded the road to Pool 6 sometime.  The contractor working on the street extension […]

Another example of why trash cans WITH LIDS! should be mandatory in this city. Yup….this city is a lost cause.  There was a time when you only children rode their bikes on sidewalks.  When you got old enough to ride your bicycle on the street, it was a big deal.  Today, most cyclists are stuck […]

Any recyclable stuff in there? Notice most of the trash are drink containers. What is left after the parking lot cleaning work yesterday?  The one that created large clouds of dust?  Lots of fine sand. This sand and other fine material left behind can be airborne with a good wind. Trash in context. I guess […]

Thunder Bay – Saturday – Its June!

Looking for colour Trash in context This sign is brand new. Hmmm….no overnight parking. That must be aimed at hotel guests.  Two hour parking limit?  I will believe that when I see that. Might be nice if they enforced the areas covered by “no parking” signs. Me thinks that our high salaried residents of City […]
