We’re Shutting Down!

October 22, 2008

From My Bottom Step is shutting down. You will not see any more news updates, no more comics, and no more pedestrian issues.

At least until Monday.

Starting tomorow we will be moving the blog over to a new host and domain. Make sure to set your bookmarks to http://www.frommybottomstep.com and update your feed reader to http://www.frommybottomstep.com/feed/.

Thanks for your patience while we make the upgrade. See you on the other side.

If you are still seeing this it means our new host 1&1 is taking its sweet time to implement changes in our domain name. Hopefully this will be resolved as quickly as possible, and you’ll be able to experiance the new site.

Migratory Birds

October 5, 2008

In the report of it’s 7th meeting, the the Animal Welfare Advisory Committee (AWAC) advises the Environment and Transportation Committee (ETC) that there is currently “very little signage regarding responsible feeding of geese at the City’s parks” and that it is waiting for a report from the Manager of Parks Operations about “key signage locations, appropriate signage wording and cost estimates for proposed public education signs.”

Interestingly, the report notes that there is an (unidentified) individual who “verbally educates the public on the risks of feeding the birds inappropriate food” and that the City has hired this same individual “to run their dogs on a irregular basis, in geese populated parks, in an effort to discourage congregating of the geese.”

I can’t help but wonder if this job was advertised, and how much it pays?

Typically, this terse report follows information which was brought to an advisory committee in verbal form and not properly captured. In other words, there’s no audio recording of the presentation for interested citizens to listen to.

Perhaps there will be some further disclosure at tomorrow night’s ETC meeting. On the other hand, given the poor manner in which committee members use their microphones, maybe there won’t be.
