    October 8, 2003 -- Note to pot growers: One Glade Air Freshener is not enough to mask the scent of 170 pounds of marijuana. A group of college students found that out when cops raided the drug farm they created in their Chicago apartment, where the temperature was kept at a stifling 100 degrees. "Once you got off the elevator, you could smell it. They put an air freshener near the front door, like that would do any good," Tactical Officer Jeannette O'Brien said.

    Default WHAT'S IN A NAME?

    Mr. Udink, You Can't Have That License Plate

    POSTED: 4:18 p.m. EDT October 8, 2003

    SALT LAKE CITY -- Dennis Udink feels there's nothing dirty about his name.

    He's trying to get a vanity license plate in Utah that says "UDINK." But his request has been rejected by the Division of Motor Vehicles because it's supposedly vulgar.

    Udink appealed and has a hearing scheduled for later this month. Now, he's getting support from state Senate Minority Leader Mike Dmitrich.

    Dmitrich says Udink is a pretty well-known family name. He added it's only offensive to people who make it offensive.

    October 9, 2003 -- Turns out a dog isn't always man's best friend. Just ask Juan Evangelista Poot, who was shot in the back by his pet pooch. Poot, 22, of Yucatan, Mexico, said his dog picked up his gun and was holding it in his mouth when it went off. "Somehow the dog managed to fire the gun, but it is not like we will arrest him," a police spokesman said.

    October 10, 2003 -- A German bar is offering women who want to shop without their partners the chance to park them at the country's first kindergarten for men. For $11.80, the Nox Tavern in Hamburg has boys' games and home-improvement coaching, as well as a meal and two beers for men left there Saturday afternoons by their bargain-hunting mates.

    October 11, 2003 -- Here's a good reason not to get caught with your pants down. Dutch scientists have developed underpants - and bras - with built-in sensors that call an ambulance if the wearer has a heart attack. "They are so easy to use, the patients wouldn't realize they are wearing special underwear," said Karel Joosee, director of the Philips Research Laboratories in Eindhoven.

    Collecting pop-up toasters sort of makes sense - if you're used to dealing with people who've flipped their lids. Anyhow, toasters are what psychiatrist Kenneth Huggins of Columbia, S.C., collects. He has 650 of them. He also has toaster bird houses and a toaster weather vane. When teased about his hobby, the sensitive shrink's standard reply is "Golf - now that's weird."

    October 12, 2003 -- Authorities in New Mexico want to exhume the mother of Billy the Kid to put to rest once and for all any controversy over when and how the Wild West outlaw died. Legend has it that Billy, whose real name was William Bonney, was slain by Sheriff Pat Garrett in 1881 after a jail escape. But others believe Bonney escaped to Texas and died nearly 70 years later. DNA testing would show whether Bonney's mom, Catherine Antrim, was related to Ollie Roberts, who died in 1950 in Texas, and claimed he was Billy the Kid....now why can't she just lie in pease

    Talking Read The Fine Print...........

    My lovely bride pointed out that there are some real winners in the "Cautionary Notes" otherwise known as the fine print stuff that comes with any prescription medication. These literary gems outline the possible side effects of the medication. A couple of gems are: "This product may cause Diarrhea and Constipation". That's right, AND. Don't want to be around when that one breaks loose..... Also, you may find "Sweating and Chills" as well. My favorite: "If this problem persists, see your physican". Duh!! Stay Safe....

    October 13, 2003 -- Exuberant guests firing their guns into the air at a Serbian wedding accidentally shot down a two-seater plane which was being flown by a pair of joy riders. The plane burst into flames and crash-landed near Kraljevo in central Serbia after being hit in the wing by a stray bullet. The men - who didn't have pilots' licenses - survived with injuries.

    October 14, 2003 -- Cops in Germany have nabbed an aggressive crow that's been attacking pedestrians by getting the fowl creature drunk on schnapps. "After its excessive consumption of alcohol, the animal lost its sense of direction and could be caught," police said. "It is now sleeping off its hangover at a local animal-protection charity."



    Organizers of a haunted house in Missouri are in trouble with the law after including scenes of female witches kissing and a dominatrix using a whip. "The Mall of the Dead," is being staged at a shopping center in Wentzville, but authorities won't let the show go on without an adults-only permit from the city. Organizer Sheri aka
    IACOJ Mistress of Dominatrix insists, "If it were a movie, it would be rated PG-13."

    October 17, 2003 -- General Motors officials are hastily renaming a new car for the Canadian market after learning its original name has a jaw-dropping double meaning. GM changed the name LaCrosse after learning it's slang for masturbation in French-speaking Quebec. "I thought I knew every expression existing in the French language for self-gratification, including the crudest ones known to man," said stymied GM Vice Chairman Bob Lutz.

    October 18, 2003 --Bite your tongue if you want to become a fluent English speaker - or better yet, have a doctor chop off a half-inch or so. That's what parents in Korea are having done to their children to give them an edge in their increasingly competitive global society. The five-minute operation is being performed on youngsters who have difficulty pronouncing some English words. The procedure makes the tongue more flexible by cutting the strap of tissue linking it to the floor of the mouth.

    October 19, 2003 -- A Tanzanian man sliced off his penis in a failed attempt to win sympathy from creditors after throwing away their money on prostitutes and alcohol. The 24-year-old man came to the agonizing decision after realizing he could not pay back the thousands of dollars friends and family lent him to invest in a business venture. The man is being treated at a hospital in the African country's northern Manyara region.

    Enlightening sighting for local family
    By KRISTEN ENEVOLD, CALGARY SUN


    Two glowing clouds that seemed to follow a Bearspaw family around their property Saturday night has the makings of a fictional tale, but Omkar Channan knows what he saw.

    "It does sound silly, but it's also something I've never seen before -- and no one I've talked to has an explanation," he said yesterday.

    Around 10 p.m. Saturday, Channan's son was walking the family dog on their property northwest of the city.

    "All of a sudden, the dog started barking and we saw two small clouds over the house -- they seemed to be chasing each other around and then merging together," said the elder Channan, who is a published author and recently retired from his role as the city's chief controller of prosecutions.

    As the family gathered outside, the strangest part of their experience began.

    "We were walking around the property, and whatever it was seemed to be following us," said Channan, explaining the objects were about 900 to 1,200 metres above ground.

    In an effort to get witnesses to the strange event, the Channans called the RCMP, both the Calgary International and Springbank airports, and neighbours.

    "It was the strangest thing I've ever seen," said Carol Geremia, one of the Channan's neighbours who also called others as she ventured outside.

    "The clouds, or whatever they were, were perfectly round and illuminated -- it kind of gave me the creeps," she said.

    The Cochrane RCMP member who stopped by attributed the illumination to an event possibly going on at Olympic Plaza, while the airports didn't see anything unusual in the night sky.

    But Channan and his neighbours are still intrigued.

    "The (possibility) of it being a UFO comes to mind, but I've never experienced anything like that before and it's just really bizarre that it seemed to be following us," Channan said.

    Don Hladiuk has been an astronomer for more than 30 years and the Channans' experience is unusual, he said.

    "Over the past 20 to 30 years, I've heard a lot of stories and a lot can be explained, but this one comes out of the abnormal," he said.

    The only explanation Hladiuk could think of is lightning interacting with clouds, or the Calgary Police Service's helicopter flying overhead.

    Meanwhile, the Channans and the Geremias will be looking to the skies again tonight to see if what they spotted will return.
