Fab idea! x
This in my opinion, is the kind of thing people should be reblogging. For everyone who died, we need to honour their memory not their fate.

ALSO, FEED THE METERS Arturas Zuokas, the mayor of Vilnius, Lithuania, rolls over a Mercedes Benz parked in a bike lane to express his displeasure with motorists that illegally park their luxury cars. “I’ve had enough of these drivers parking their luxury cars on bike lanes and pedestrian crossings,” he said of the (likely) photo op. “This tank is a good tool to solve the problem of parking in the wrong place.” I’d vote for mayor Zuokas.

This is certainly one way to get people’s attention when it comes to parking…

Got two texts this morning, the first
“just saw the write up in the spectator”
This was in regards to a race for life article that was written by Claire Craig. She had met Andy at the same I had and was touched at the thought I was running in his memory. She also knew about Alfie thru my blog…
Love this! Bless!
Andrés Iniesta was nowhere to be seen as Barcelona’s celebrations began at Wembley on Saturday evening. United had spent much of the previous 90 minutes looking for the little Spaniard, and now even his team-mates were unable to locate him.
But as the new European champions were embracing and cavorting, their unassuming little midfielder was once again deep in United territory, this time locked in conversation with Paul Scholes. The 27-year-old had two priorities before Saturday’s game: win the match; then get Scholes’ shirt.
Iniesta, perhaps the leading exponent of modern midfield artistry, got his wish before trotting off to rejoin his colleagues, white shirt draped carefully around his neck. Even in the final game of his epic career, Paul Scholes attracted the admiration of his most distinguished peers.
I better hear the Reds loud and proud on Saturday
ABC’s @jaketapper reports: President Obama will today lay a wreath at the “Survivor Tree,” a callery pear tree found in the wreckage of the World Trade Center plaza, nursed back to health, and planted at the 9/11 Memorial Plaza at ground zero in December.
The tree, originally planted at the WTC complex more than 30 years ago, has tremendous symbolic value for many New Yorkers. Taken to the Parks Department’s Arthur Ross Nursery in Van Cortlandt Park, the tree was barely alive in 2001.
It was then only around eight feet tall. Most of it had been destroyed. It was twisted and charred. Parks Department workers nursed it back to health; it now stands more than 35 feet.
