Urban Views The Corner Store


Continuing along with my Urban Views Series......

I always remember, how when I was growing up, there was a corner store that everyone hung out at. It was those corner stores that created a sense of belonging to a community. Good Times for sure.

Street Art Revitalization

Speaking of Urban Art. It is so nice to see the wonderful Murals that have brought blighted areas, ungly allys, and boring industrial walls to life. Many cities and urban areas have found that this approach is a key piece of successful revitalization. I say - Viva La Street Art. I would much rather children see fish in the sea than offensive and abusive words.

Death Toll for tobacco companies

Virginia has long been a tabacco state. The state is home to one of the largest cigarette manufactures in the world, Philip Morris, located in Richmond, Va.. In what is sure to be a death knoll to these profit driven manufactures, the Virginia State Legislator has passed a law banning smoking in restaurants and clubs. Not a good thing when your home town is no longer willing to support you.

Lump on a log.

Sorry I haven't posted in a few days.  
I have celulities in my right leg and I've been a bit of a lump on a log.

Pelicans Suffering from Frost Bite

Many of the pelicans in the area are suffering from frostbite. Today, in Virginia Beach, Va near Rudy Inlet and Owls Creek, the Wildlife Response, Inc team will round up and rehab the birds. They feel they will be able to care for them until they're healthy enough for release back into the wildlife.
