Re: “Parking in our Bike Lanes

I live on Brunswick Street, where a long bike lane opens up only a block from my house and no one ever rides it. It's filled to the brim with cars driving in or parked next to a grim amount of door prize potential. Cyclists often have to jump up to the sidewalk to avoid cars in the bike lane there-Thankfully the sidewalks along the Citadel side are wide enough to allow for a bicycle and a pedestrian to easily pass one another. I once had a bike trailer for my kid, thinking I could use that downtown. Nope. Pretty soon, I used it only on the wharves, then with the omnipresent construction there, I gave it away to someone in Dartmouth where they have multiple safer biking options. They use it almost everyday. I wish we could here. Separate the bike lanes from traffic and parked cars! Sheesh!

Re: “Quiet!

You sound like a spectacular human being. You know that you were once a child, right? Let kids be kids without their parents having police called upon them for the noises the children make while playing. Sheesh!

Re: “Bike shop bitch

I had a shop I used to commonly frequent have a newer employee argue with me in a condescending way via telephone, about a bike I had once purchased at their previous location. They told me that there was no way I had bought the bicycle from them, when I had just casually mentioned it when talking about another bike; Telling me over and over how they don't sell used bikes. I explained that they had once. She kept telling me that they had never, ever once, in their entire history and hung up. Yea, never brought a bike back to there for myself or my kids after that and we had likely dropped a few thousand altogether in that shop over the years.

Re: “Cogswell energy plan gets cautious go-ahead

Why don't we use it to give free heat to the people who live in the area that have to put up with the stench of the plant in August? Seems a bit more fair to include them.

Re: “Halifax should do more to make sidewalks walkable

In some Scandinavian countries they heat the sidewalks in some cities and towns during winter. It means they never require plowing and it allows for all citizens to be out and about on even very cold days.

Re: “Inter-generational attraction

I'm often approached by younger men, but am never certain if they wish to hook up or if they desire something more emotionally intimate (which is what I am searching for), so it makes it difficult to trust them. Perhaps putting your intentions out there from the start will attract like-minded/ hearted sorts?
