In two weeks time...

A quick point of clarification today as we approach the end of July. Joining is remaining free of charge for the forseeable future, likely to be the next two weeks, after which point the dreaded membership fee may be brought in.

Meanwhile, we hope you all are enjoying the summer sunshine. And to all those currently watching the Big Brother eviction...surely it's time to move on and change that channel. Over two months and they are still in there. YourParkingSpace isn't even that old.

Site Update

Just a quick update today. Our hits are gradually increasing each day, and interestingly one of the parking spaces registered has since become rented out - always nice to see things working out as planned. Over the next couple of weeks things should really start to pick up so, as they say, stay tuned.

Heat and Holidays

It appears that the sun has it in for us this summer, with this adsurd heat here in London. Hopefully through us you'll be able to earn or save some money, in which case a quick visit to Cucumber Man could be in store - an air conditioning unit can be rented for surprisingly little.

There are some who are embracing this heat wave, and no it's not only the huge deodorant conglomerates and the many ice cream van owners. It's also those dreaded environmentalists, no doubt seeing this weather as yet further proof of global warming. Maybe it is, maybe it isn't, but all too often the car driver has not only been landed with the blame, but also villified as if each and every one of them are personally responsible for the destruction of our planet. As over 17,000 international scientists stated when signing the Oregon Petition, from the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine:

"There is no convincing evidence that human release of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases is causing, or will cause in the future, catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere or disruption of the Earth's climate."

Not what the environmentalists would have us believe. So if you're tired of hearing global warming mentioned tirelessly coupled with all this anti-driving propaganda, then visit The Association of British Drivers. They campaign for all things good and pro-car.

And for all those organising their holidays at this moment in time, check out how the travel companies are price discriminating through charging some online customers more than others. The moral of the story appears to be, amongst other things, to sort results through 'cheapest option first'.

Do you have any other useful summer tips or insightful quotes? If so, drop us an email. If we agree with you and it is indeed interesting and useful you could find yourself mentioned here. Prestigious it may not be just yet, but we're working on it.

But of course we could always do with your help, so feel free to spread the word! After all, we can't keep it free forever. Best to get in now we say.

So what about us? Well, have you ever been walking to work one morning on your far from hassle-free commute, only to look over and see a completely free driveway? Wouldn’t that make a nice parking space? That’s what we thought, resulting in the formation of
