I did my advice bureau tonight and lo and behold the Swan Underpass remains bereft of graffiti. Much that I am really not sure why it has to be closed off over the weekend when the graffiti had been cleared by Thursday.
We have also tried to make Puffins extinct. Puffins are those silly types of pedestrian crossings (replacing Pelicans) that don't have a light to tell you when to walk or not. They did permit a pedestrian to do a little dance on Kings Heath High Street - much to the amusement of drivers (not!), but there are no lights once people have started to cross. You just need to trust technology.
Puffins were a nonsense idea from government.
In the mean time, however. The Adjudication Panel for England
have decided to ban a councillor for doing casework. I kid you not. The whole system is going surreal. Check out the Coleen Gill case somewhere oop north.
On Thursday we had a regeneration meeting at which almost the whole meeting was taken up by process.
I feel like playing "My Funny Valentine". This is a really interesting number that starts based around a C minor chord with a descending note. I heard it performed by a flugel horn player at the jazz summer school in Pontypridd. We did actually sign up this person as a singer about a year later. He really is very very good. I was listening to Miles Davies' version of "My Funny Valentine" whilst meandering around my advice bureaux.
We are supposed to be releasing some of his music soon (not Miles Davies). This is really quality music.
