Feral Parking

Was reading the newspaper this morning and had to share this gem from the BBC News.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-trending-26030817

The article is talking about feral parking and how residents in Rome can report it via twitter. What a great term “sosta selvaggia” or feral parking. I’ll have to tell people at work about it. Here’s a quote from the BBC ews

“But one man is on a mission to change this – Raffaele Clemente, who was recently appointed as head of Rome’s traffic police. Two months ago, he helped set up an official Twitter account for Rome’s police, @PLRomaCapitale, to allow residents to tweet in their concerns – including on parking. It encourages people to tweet photos of “sosta selvaggia” (feral parking) along with the location of the offending vehicle – ready for the traffic police to come and take action.”

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
