Chelmsley Wood and Fordbridge

I went to the "rent office" to tell them the ceiling panels in Merton House had not been put back yet, when I was on the way to Sommerfield to get bread, oats and the Radio Times for next week

After shopping I took these panoramas
but they are a bit squashed server side

flat roofs are out - even on a porch

still here months later

this school ground is a long term disgrace and sets a bad example to the children,
or even a health and safety issue

this path has not been swept since autumn 2006

daffodils and litter
this junk has been in the school grounds for weeks

see the new door telephone panel in the day light

this is the gap - one of many - in the ceiling

fixing the gas pipes with new plastic liners
posted here because of the portrait format bug on new Blogger has not been fixed

Solihull images

most of these blogs start in Bosworth Drive, north Solihull before entering Birmingham SNAPS TWO
I feel guilty about neglecting this blog which was meant to be about the untidy state of the streets and footpaths - most of those pics are in the sequence of my walks

sign to preserve Ungdomshuset - Jagtvej 69 Copenhagen Denmark

Ungdomshuset - Jagtvej 69: "Kampagnen er taget gevaldigt til i styrke siden landsretten d. 28. august i år stadfæstede byrettens dom. Med denne dom i hånden kan den skrupskøre højreorienterede frikirke Faderhuset forlange huset ryddet. Den nuværende rydningstrussel er et direkte resultat, af at politikerne i Københavns Borgerrepræsentation i år 2000 løb fra alle tidligere løfter og aftaler og solgte skødet til huset, trods massive protester fra alle tænkelige kanter. Vi giver ikke op og vi opfordrer alle til at deltage i kampen for bevarelse af vores allesammens Ungeren.

Suburban gangs defy French police


"Nadir Dendoune, a 34-year-old journalist living in l'Ile-Saint-Denis, says what is needed above all is better policing.

'When I was young, the cops were patrolling on mopeds and talked to us,' he recalls.

'Now they don't know us. They just patrol the area locked in their cars and look around as if they were in a wildlife park."
