Saggy Pants will Cost you.......

A CITY in the US has collected almost $US4000 in fines since it banned saggy pants less than nine months ago.

The ordinance introduced in Albany, Georgia bans pants or skirts that sit more than 7.5cm below the top of the hips, exposing skin or underwear.

According to the Herald, City Attorney Nathan Davis recently said the Municipal Court "advises that 187 citations have been issued and fines collected of $US3,916.49 ($A3969)," since the ordinance went into effect on November 23.

First-time offenders pay a fine of $20. Subsequent violations can result in fines of up to $200.

Violators cannot be imprisoned, and the ordinance allows 40 hours of community service to be completed in lieu of a fine.

A number of politicians in the US are worried that sloppy dress by America's youth could be related, no matter how indirectly, to delinquency, poor learning and crime.

Heads Up Y'all HRP/RCMP warning about a Computer Scam!

The HRP/RCMP Integrated Financial Crime Unit is warning citizens about a computer related scam.

The Unit regularly takes complaints from citizens who have received a call from someone claiming to represent a large software company. The caller tells the victim they have detected a problem on their computer.

The problem may be that the computer has a virus or is working slowly and offers to fix it. The victim is directed to get on their computer and follow a list of instructions that are supposed to correct the problem. Investigators believe that by following the instructions, the suspect gains remote access to the computer, including all personal information.

The Unit has recently received a number of these complaints where the callers have become increasingly hostile to the point of threatening or harassing. In several cases the victim receives several calls even though they had originally declined their assistance. Residents are advised that if they receive a threatening or harassing phone call, they can press *57 (land lines only) after they hang up to trace the last incoming call. The information can then be retrieved by police if needed.

If anyone has received a similar call and has followed the instructions, it is recommended that you have your computer serviced at a reputable shop. Citizens are also reminded not to give personal information to anyone, whether solicitation occurs by telephone or in person, unless you have initiated the contact or you are certain of the identification of the individual and the legitimacy of the organization they claim to represent.

Chocolate makes you better at math. (sorta) You're Welcome!!


According to reports in the British media, participants given large amounts of flavanols, which are compounds found in chocolate, did better when asked to count backwards in groups of three from a random number between 800 and 999. Flavanols increase blood flow to the brain, scientists say "For things that are difficult to do, mentally demanding things that maybe crop up in your work it could help," said study leader David Kennedy of Northumbria University in the UK, is quoted as saying in The Telegraph.

Don't go nuts with chocolate just yet, though. When the participants were asked to count backwards by sevens, the chocolate didn't help, according to the article. Apparently that's a more complex task that uses a different part of the brain, the scientists figure. Oh, and the dose in the study? 500mg, equal to about five bars of chocolate!

So what does a 1300 pound Pumpkin look like anyway?

In honour of the Pumpkin Festival in Kentville....... (I <3 Pumpkin People!!)

Matt McConkie of Utah seems to have the secret to growing MASSIVE Pumpkins, he had two of the largest at the Contest in Salt Lake City over the weekend.

And here are the beauties.....Imagine trying to turn them into Halloween decorations? You have to climb inside! But you have Pumpkin seeds for days....yummy
