I recently viewed a number of secondary schools with my daughter, and noticed that some had filthy floors, walls and desks, studded with gum, yet one school did not. The reason? There were frequent small ‘gum bins’ mounted on the walls along the corridors. If children can use them and keep their environment clean, why not provide ‘gum bins’ in the street, and see if adults can follow their example?.

I was like 26 years old, and it was way too much car for me. The Carlyle didn’t look half bad in the show a little seedy maybe, but with potted plants out front. Walking past the Carlyle today, I noticed it shines neon bright as one of Ocean Drive’s sleekest hotels.
