A poet and a scientist were travelling together on a plane. The scientist was bored and said to the poet, “Hey, you, do you want to play a game? I’ll ask you a question, and if you get it wrong, you give me $5. Then you ask me a question, and if I cant answer it, I’ll give you $5.” The poet thought about this for a moment, but he decided against it, seeing that the scientist was obviously a very bright man. He politely turned down the scientists offer. The scientist, who was really bored, tried again. “Look, I’ll ask you a question, and if you can’t answer it, you give me $5. Then you ask me a question, and if I can’t answer it, I’ll give you $50.” The poet agreed. “Okay,” the scientist said, “what is the exact distance between the Earth and the Moon?” The poet, obviously not knowing the answer, didn't stop to think about the scientist’s question. He took a $5 bill out of his pocket and handed it to the scientist. The scientist happily accepted the bill and promptly said, “Okay, now its your turn.” The poet thought about this for a few minutes, then asked, “All right, what goes up a mountain on three legs, but comes down on four?” The bright glow quickly vanished from the scientist’s face. He thought about this for a long time, taking out his notepad and making numerous calculations. He finally gave up on his notepad and took out his laptop, using his Multimedia Encyclopedia. As the plane was landing the scientist gave up. He reluctantly handed the poet a $50 bill.

The Vulcan Regional Food Bank Society is requesting funding which would assist us in purchasing and renovating our own building. We are unable to provide an exact amount of needed funding at this time since we do not know which building we will actually get, if it will need renovation, nor if we will have to build a new building instead of purchasing an existing one. However, we would like to raise $160,000 for the building fund this year. Our costs of raising these funds will be about $3500. The Vulcan Regional Food Bank Society is currently located at 115-2nd Ave. N. in Vulcan, which is also where we are incorporated in Alberta, or we may be reached by mail at Box 594, Vulcan, AB T0L 2B0. For further information, please call the Executive Director, Carrol 403 485 2192. If you are donating to our Building Fund, please make cheques out to Vulcan Regional Food Bank Society Building Fund. Thank you!

Lazy Days of Summer The kids are finally out of school. Most of their days spent in the pool. Windows open or the air conditioner running. Slamming doors cause the ice cream truck is coming. Relaxing in the shade is always nice, while sipping lemonade chilled with ice. The warm breeze blowing through the trees, swaying branches and shuffling leaves. Sometimes the heat can be a real bummer, during those lazy days of summer.
