Toronto potholes!

2014-05-01 11.35.05 copy

Now that spring has sprung in Toronto, and there is no more ice on the roads, what’s left is winter debris and potholes! In case you were interested, this is a link to how potholes form.

All along my commute are the massive potholes. This is a nuisance to cars and may damage them. In fact, you can claim any damage caused by potholes if the City doesn’t maintain the roads to the minimum standards prescribed.

That said,  potholes are dangerous to cyclist. A pothole threw me off my bike during a weekend ride a few weeks back.

Did you know you can call 311 and report the potholes? Just dial 311 on your phone and you’ll be connected with a human that will take your pothole report.

You can also report the potholes online.

And, now, there is an Open311 standard that allows software developers to create apps that allow the reporting of the likes of potholes and graffiti on smart phones.

Hey Donna, buy something…

This is a test post to help out my brilliant friend Donna with a iframe issue on her blog.

Issue:
While trying to embed an affiliate iframe code from Amazon on her blog, she just gets a blank page. It seems like embedding iFrames in WordPress is broken or just not working for her.

Resolution:
It seems that if you have an ad blocker running, you can still see YouTube embedded iframes like this one from one of my favourite musical finds below, but not the Amazon affiliate iframe below that…

Speaking of brilliant friends, check out this amazing book from my friend Anthony De Sa. Anthony is a Giller-nominated author who serves on the Story Planet board with me.
