Too Old to Trick or Treat?

Apparently anyone over 12 years of age who participates in trick or treating on October 31st can be fined at least $25 or even go to jail

However an older sibling who wants to safely trick or treating with a younger sibling will be allowed

 

The city is also strict on the schedule for Halloween, with city code stating any person trick-or-treating after 8 p.m. will be punished by up to a $100 fine or jail time of up to 30 days, or both.

Calgary could be a 2 time host of the Olympics

The Olympic dream lives on in Calgary…

The International Olympic Committee’s ) Executive Board released a list of potential host cities that it recommended as candidates and of the four cities left in the running, only three made it through including Calgary!

along with Stockholm, Sweden, and a joint bid from Milan/Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy

Calgary’s bid will still need to survive past a city-wide plebiscite on November 13, which will give Calgarians the chance to either move the bid forward or shorten the list of potential host cities down even further.

SO CALGARY BETTER VOTE IN FAVOR OF THE OLYMPICS BECAUSE THIS WOULD BE THE COOLEST THING EVER

Researchers believe natural compounds in chocolate boost blood vessel health and help reduce inflammation.

But they urged moderation – eating chocolate is only healthy if you do it occasionally, because the sugar and fat means more frequent consumption does more harm than good.
