Chances are, if you drive, you’ve driven down a street only to come dead end at a “ROAD CLOSED” sign. It happens! And in the summer, especially in London, it’s roadworkpalooza out there. It seems everywhere is under construction. Well, I put together a Google Maps of all the spots in the city where road work is taking place! And it’s colour coded!

Most of them consist of Nova Scotia photographs, but others include some really neat shots of London somewhere in the early-to-mid 1960s. Haven’t gotten that far yet though, still entering metadata and info into the tags re: what the photos are of, where they were taken, etc.
About 70-80 photos are up on my Flickr so far, and there is more to come!
Long time no post. Have been fairly busy this week with tests and assignments and all that good stuff. Managed to get my 2 original stories done in one day (which was my hope, but not what I expected.)
First off, Record Store Day is coming up this Saturday (April 20th) and many record stores in London are doing stuff to mark the day. I spoke to Blair Whatmore of Grooves Records in Downtown London to see what Grooves is doing for Record Store Day.
Second, a piece about the new London smoking bylaw that is going into effect starting May 1st. It prohibits smoking within 9 metres of park recreational areas, and the entrances to municipal buildings. I spoke to Linda Stobo, Program Manager for Chronic Disease Prevention and Tobacco Control at the Middlesex-London Health Unit *whew*, to find out why the bylaw was created and how it will affect children. NOTE:I did a streeter back in October about this very issue, back when it was still being kicked around in City Council.
That’s all for now! SCHOOLS DONE IN LESS THAN A WEEK.
