London too Sexy for Itself.

October 3, 2008

Last night at club Mansion the “Everything to do with Sex Show” kicked off their first annual weekend long convention in London with a fashion show, drinks, dancing and unabashed fun.

The “Everything to do with Sex Show” begins today in the progress building at the Western Fairgrounds and runs till Sunday, targeting couples and singles with all kinds of exhibitors, activities, seminars and stage entertainment.

Hit up their website to get a discount on tickets and check out some of the fun seminars and activities such as the Fake Orgasm Contest, Adventurous Kinky Play 101, The Swinging Lifestyle, and How to Strip for Your Lover.

London is often seen as a very conservative city, but there is a very active gay community, swingers scene, and even a thriving bath house. With more events like the Everything to do with Sex Show bringing those sub cultures into the open, and another Collage, London might just turn it’s repressed image around.

Noting that “most United States newspapers did not play up Earth Hour” and that the Canadian papers which were reviewed “previewed Earth Hour a lot more prominently” and “dominated with Earth Hour pictures,” David Gough asks, why did Earth Hour have a larger profile in Ontario? 01

A delegation representing TREA, Waste Free World and Home County appeared at the 2007/11/26 ETC meeting along with this written submission about reducing the volume of waste at all downtown special events.

ETC directed that recycling receptacles be installed “in all City-owned and managed facilities by June, 2008.”

So far, so good.

The matter of waste elimination was referred to administration “to report back on the viability of conducting a pilot project to commence in 2008, with appropriate resources and finances, and the requirement for an evaluation report once the pilot project is completed.”

Seems pretty obvious to me that the pilot project is viable. The devil’s always in the details. We’ll have to keep our eyes on this to make sure it gets a fair chance to prove it’s worth.
