    At this time we do not want anyone to panic however a major crime has recently taken place. In the province of Quebec thieves have just made off with $ 30 million dollars worth of Maple Syrup. I mean what is next, stealing all of the chickens from Colonel Sanders ? Some people are without any morals at all ( mind you they do have a lot of Syrup  lol ). 

       ---   Yes way back on page 10 of this little thread we covered the " Great Canadian Syrup Caper. " Well I gather that at long last there has been a court-case to cover this crime ( after 4 years of waiting ). A fellow by the name of Richard Vallieres has been found guilty of theft, fraud and selling stolen merchandise ( he was the ringleader of the gang ). Several others are also on trial. The sentences have not yet been announced ( eg: 10 years in solitary and No Syrup at all   lol ).

    The End Of An Age: The Ringling Brothers & Barnum & Bailey Circus is closing down for good after 146 years on the road. I'm afraid that there will be some sad Clowns soon.

    So have you been keeping an eye on your cash or not ? Well it seems that a 68 year old fellow forgot he had stashed $ 100,000 dollars in cash ( about $ 80,000 US ) in an old TV set. Lucky for him the people at the recycling center were very honest and returned the money to the old guy. Btw has anyone else here ever lost track of a big pile of cash   lol.
