Eckington Civic Association Summer Clean-up

This past Saturday morning, I again joined fellow neighbors in the Eckington community with the bi-annual Eckington Civic Association trash clean-up (my entry on the previous clean-up can be viewed here).
The event kicked off at 9 a.m. with Krispy Kreme donuts and coffee. The organizer Charlene McCullers told everyone to just put in an hour and then call it a day due to the heat.

I teamed up with R Street resident Justin Darrow to cover North Capitol Street N.E. and parts of Lincoln Road, T Street, and Seaton Place.

Due to North Capitol Main Street's efforts, there are new iron treeboxes on North Capitol Street... but the tree boxes were full of trash and weeds. The tree box pictured here is an example of one we cleaned out. I think that keeping the tree boxes well-maintained will set the tone for the rest of the street. North Capitol Street is particularly hard to keep clean due to all of the transient traffic that passes through every day.

Although some people a ban on single sales of alcohol would decrease trash, I think that benefit has been overstated. During the brief clean up, I picked up one beer can, one vodka bottle, and one brandy bottle. But, as in the past, the little plastic "barrels" that hold children's sugar water took first place, I picked up four of those and countless single-serving potato chip bags.

To be a good benign being is to procure a make of openness to the mankind, an gift to trusteeship uncertain things beyond your own restrain, that can lead you to be shattered in hugely extreme circumstances pro which you were not to blame. That says something exceedingly impressive about the fettle of the ethical life: that it is based on a corporation in the unpredictable and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a shop than like a sparkler, something rather dainty, but whose mere special attraction is inseparable from that fragility.

I think she’s a good actress but I don’t think I’ll tell her that if I ever meet her…Then again maybe she just means that she doesn’t like to get compliments from Hollywood and fans are different or she may be saying that she doesn’t really believe in her own abilities and that’s why she questions the sincerity of compliments megan fox naked

The kid was located — his name is Harvii — and he was flown from London to New York yesterday to appear on The Today Show this morning with Megan Fox and gift her with this completely overexposed rose megan fox naked photos
