This is how one of my illustrations would look on an inner city underpass.

Nailed it! Typical 'worker's paradise'. You know 'pride of ownership'.

Was using "Google Earth" to look at the old neighborhood I grew up in (N. Philly). Everything is grafftied now. It was a well worn, lower middle class neighborhood back in the day. But it was CLEAN. Not now. The nearby below grade railroad cut is still there. No tracks now. And the neighborhood uses it as a landfill for large appliances and furniture.

Dr. Bob:

GF - sounds like it was a goof place to be "from" - as in not living there now.


There's a lot of urban neighborhoods that have gone to hell in the last 30 years. See it everywhere.


The rural areas ain't what they used to be, either.

Woods I used to play in as a kid have been bulldozed for sprawling developments of "kit mansions", mini wannabe-"towns", & pop-up retail centers--& the run-off has washed out the rivers & creeks I used to fish.

Gang stragglers have finally shown up, but there's hardly enough infrastructure to "tag"--& it's out of the way enough that only 'hood locals would see it.

Graffiti everywhere

Thanks for the post. It was an interesting read. Question to the webmaster: where did you get this design? Is there a place where someone with a low budget can get such a design? Thanks!

Yup, I know about all the best free music websites. Thanks for the post though

Can the webmaster explain why he has only written this quite small article instead of a really long sophisticated post. It was interesting though and I hope you can elaborate more on it. Thanks

No ifs, ands or buts.

Es ist unwahrscheinlich.

Bravo, su idea es Гєtil

If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything it is possible to advise? I get so significantly lately it is driving me mad so any assistance is very considerably appreciated.

Happy is the country which has no history.

I like this ver much

Im Vertrauen gesagt ist meiner Meinung danach offenbar. Ich wollte dieses Thema nicht entwickeln.
