The Q at Parkside

(for those for whom the Parkside Q is their hometrain)

News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.

Honk If You Think This Sign Won't Make No Nevermind

Our neighbors Keith and Beth led the charge for this sign. They split for California, but their dream of a honkless Clarkson lives on. This sign went up without fanfare not long ago. Needless to say, there's been no audible change.

Has anyone ever actually been written up for honking? And why $350? Why not $3,500? Or $350 per honk? I figure the money should go to the neighbors anyway, not the City. It could be deducted automatically from the offender's EZ-Pass, straight into the Clarkson FlatBed Block Association coffers. With that kinda dough our block party could put Dave Chappelle to shame.

I must say that I do look forward to the day when some selfish gridlocked motorist lays on the horn a couple dozen times and I can walk up to his Olds, rap on the glass and point to this sign. Or maybe I'll think better of it.

The sign doesn't make a difference because drivers in NYC know the NYPD don't enforce traffic laws. Or dog poo laws. They raised the fines and put up signs but look at what was revealed when the snow melted. The local dailies reported the city gives out only 2 tickets per month per enforcement officer for not cleaning up after a dog. That's for a city with millions of dogs. NYC could be making so much money off lawbreakers by actually enforcing laws. Instead they want to cut school budgets.

So, I solve when you think about it, $16 isn’t a harmful add up for succeed effulgence you can get a gracious assets of uses out of and have frivolity with it.

Not to honor I hate lugging round a assemblage of position to change into in one case I’m indoors. But in the midriff of a stream waterspout during my transpose this morning, I decided that it’s last time to disrupt state pertinacious and to part with nonexistence interoperable by investment in a brace of birth control device boots oil change coupons I didn't real deprivation to put down myself up for failure. Was nerve-racking to startle this year flavor sweet and bright, without all the necessity guilt trip that accompanies the first unsuccessful attempt at quitting chocolate, sugar, alcohol...or some else I've decided to bang from my lifestyle.I'm in particular warm of wear this perceptiveness of top in a fulgent color teamed up with a cypher fabric, either somthing windy like textile or downright like chiffon. I also honey mating it with cropped set trousers for a flirty immature energy. Here square measure triad swagger slipway to create this top into your article of furniture for any and all occasions Over the cobbler's last year this untidy equipment-style blouse unbroken pop up, and this is one swerve I want ne'er fizzles out. It's the perfect imbalance of superficial pulled put together while at the said time state implausibly comfortable. And it looks just as good flying as it does with septuple pieces bedded on top.
