Walt doesn't like to be the bringer of bad tidings all the time... even though there's a lot of them around! Ed. reminds me to include, every now and then, something upbeat and, if possible, funny. Here's something.
Yes, that was a giant pumpkin -- 1046 lbs worth -- dropped from a height of about 130 feet onto a Pontiac Grand Am. [Good target. Horrible cars. Ed.] This happened during an annual fundraiser by Blue Grass Nursery and Garden Centre, near Calgary, in support of the Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation. Donations are still being counted but last year's event raised nearly C$40,000 and organizers are hoping for a similar result this time around.
