@EsoPhoenix don't apologize for being who you are - sharing the good stuff & the down times --- many of us are the same way but too silent.

@Sarah_Nicolas Makes me nostalgic for my early days of internet on AOL in late 90's. I loved the thrill / sound of IM's & "You've Got Mail!"
12:28 AM - 3 Jun 12 via Sherlock Holmes 2 for BlackBerry

had a first date this evening. Met @Starbucks & then sat on cementblockrocks near Leuty Lifeguard Station. Lake, geese, rainbow (& kisses.)

City Bans Plastic Shopping Bags! Cool. They are devastating to environment. Problem! options/replacement not in circulation & ? trash-use?
8:04 AM - 7 Jun 12 via Sherlock Holmes 2 for BlackBerry

For instance, apt. buildings & people w/pets re-use plastic bags for household garbage. Prior to plastic we got along but now? Need options!
8:07 AM - 7 Jun 12 via Sherlock Holmes 2 for BlackBerry

Who're we kidding? Banning plastic bags to help the environment isn't what this is about. Political tug o'war w/Ford. ‪#peoplewantbikelanes
9:55 AM - 7 Jun 12 via Sherlock Holmes 2 for BlackBerry

@NosniborPC Then again, he brought this on himself. He's been a jerk to council, thought he'd do this & they said, "not so fast, mister!"
10:51 AM - 7 Jun 12 via Sherlock Holmes 2 for BlackBerry

Totally cool w/plastic bags ban. Get rid of garbage bags too! But come up w/options for daily waste disposal. Bags aren't just for shopping!
1:25 PM - 7 Jun 12 via Sherlock Holmes 2 for BlackBerry

would love to see other initiatives passed so easily at City Council that are for the good of the environment and citizens of Toronto.

@ValAssenza I have a drink. I think they know what it is better than I do! The Queen & Hammersmith crew @StarbucksCanada are awesome.
12:29 PM - 8 Jun 12 via Sherlock Holmes 2 for BlackBerry

wants to stop talking about plastic bag ban - honestly all for it - but why isn't anyone discussing how bags are used for trash? ‪#TOpoli
12:33 PM - 8 Jun 12 via Sherlock Holmes 2 for BlackBerry

RT @jjmk1978: @goldmourn or how about what will be used instead, IE trash can liners which are also plastic but thicker and more expensive.
12:41 PM - 8 Jun 12 via Sherlock Holmes 2 for BlackBerry

RT @ILiveWith3Cats: @goldmourn We re-use the heck out of ours. I've used them for lunches, liners, poop scoops, protection for shoes, etc.
