Today I went to inspect the updated plans for Mistra bay development. I am glad to say that in fact there is not going to be much development at all. The place where the public toilets are going to be is a small square in a well-chosen location. According to the plans, the pebble beach will be impro...

Hunting and trapping

First of all it is my opinion that hunting and trapping should be stopped completely. They contribute to the ever-deteriorating state of the worl'd natural environment - just like cutting down trees, clearing land for building, dumping garbage, etc. etc. I think there are two ways how this can be do...
