What Your Favourite Dessert Says About your Personality

No cheating. Pick your dessert (only one), then look to see what psychiatrists think about you!

If all of the desserts listed below were sitting in front of you, which would you choose?

- Angel Food
- Brownies
- Lemon Meringue
- Vanilla Cake/Chocolate Icing
- Strawberry Short Cake
- Chocolate Cake/Chocolate Icing
- Ice Cream
- CarrotCake

OK - Now that you've made your choice, this is what Research says about you. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Angel food - Sweet, loving, cuddly. You love all warm and fuzzy items. A little nutty at times. Sometimes you need an ice cream cone at the end of the day. Others perceive you as being childlike and immature at times.

Brownies - You are adventurous, love new ideas, are a champion of underdogs and slayer of dragons. When tempers flare up, you whip out your saber. You are always the oddball with a unique sense of humor and direction. You tend to be very loyal.

Lemon Meringue -Smooth, sexy, & amp; articulate with your hands, you are an excellent after-dinner speaker and a good teacher. But don't try to walk and chew gum at the same time. A bit of a diva at times, but you have many friends.

Vanilla Cake/Chocolate Icing - Fun-loving, sassy, humorous. Not very grounded in life; very indecisive and lack motivation. Everyone enjoys being around you, but you are a practical joker. Others should be cautious in making you mad. However, you are a friend for life.

Strawberry Short Cake - Romantic, warm, loving. You care about other people and can be counted on in a pinch. You tend to melt. You can be overly emotional and annoying at times.

Chocolate Cake/Chocolate Icing - Sexy, always ready to give and receive. Very creative, adventurous, ambitious, and passionate. You have a cold exterior but are warm on the inside. Not afraid to take chances. Will not settle for anything average in life. Love to laugh.

Ice Cream - You like sports, whether it be baseball, football, basketball, or soccer. If you could, you would like to participate, but you enjoy watching sports. You don't like to give up the remote control. You tend to be self-centered and high maintenance.

Carrot Cake -You are a very fun loving person, who likes to laugh. You are fun to be with. People like to hang out with you. You are a very warm hearted person and a little quirky at times. You have many loyal friends.

Howlin' Good Tips for Your Companion Animal

Halloween is coming up and we have prepared some tips for kids, parents and dog owners to help keep kids and dogs safe this Halloween. Changes in routine and the strange sights and sounds associated with Halloween can cause stress in a normally placid family dog. Keep dogs out of the fray by securing them away from door and providing a long-lasting chew treat. Teach kids to Be a Tree and stand still if any dogs come near them on Halloween. Halloween is lots of fun for kids, but many dogs will be confused or upset by kids in strange costumes and by lots of people coming to the door, but never being invited in. Doggone Safe offers the following tips for dog owners, kids and parents:

1. Secure your dog behind a closed door or in a crate in a room away from the front door or the party if children are meeting at your house.
2. Give him a juicy bone from the butcher, a sterilized bone or Kong stuffed with hotdog, Rollover or other soft dog treats or a pre-stuffed bone from the pet store.
3. Play music or leave a TV or radio playing in the dog's room to help mask the sounds of the activity at the front door.
4. Close drapes so that the dog does not see people coming and going through the window.
5. If you have a dog that barks at the sound of the doorbell, disconnect it or watch for trick-or-treaters so that they do not have to ring or knock.
6. Puppies and dogs that like to chase can get overly excited by costumes with dangly bits or streaming material. Supervise very carefully if you have a dog that may try to play with your children's costumes while they are wearing them. Teach kids to Be a Tree and stand still if the dog does start nipping at their costume since the more they move, the more exited the dog will get.
Keep your dogs (and cats) indoors around Halloween time. Pets have been stolen, injured or poisoned as part of Halloween pranks or other rituals.

Least Favourite Halloween Treats

Terrible Halloween Treats

1) ToothbrushesDentists and orthodontists should not be allowed to celebrate Halloween if they're going to get all tooth doctory on us. Do not bring your work home with you, folks!

2) RaisinsLittle boxes of stuck-together shriveled globs are not what little kids schlep around the neighborhood for all night. When they say trick-or-treat, they want candy that will rot their teeth, not wrinkled grapes.

3) Candy CornThe most polarizing candy of all. The fruitcake of Halloween; it just never goes away.

4) ApplesThis disappointing "treat" is the main reason to avoid unwrapped food while trick-or-treating.

5) Tootsie RollsIt looks like chocolate and sort of smells like chocolate, but the mini brown tubes are not real chocolate.

What was you least favourite treat to get when you were a kid?

Living On A Mean Street

Here's an article from today's Chronicle Herald regarding a by-law complaint against a family in Clayton Park. Have a look and let's talk about it..

He’s fighting pirates off the coast of Somalia; she’s walking the plank on a cul-de-sac in Clayton Park.

At least one of Christine Dickin­son’s neighbours on Trillium Terrace has complained to the city’s bylaw en­forcement department about where Ms. Dickinson leaves her green cart and the length of the grass on her front lawn.

“They called and basically com­plained that my premises were un­sightly," said Ms. Dickinson, whose husband, Chris, is the captain of HMCS Ville de Quebec.

The Halifax­based frigate is protecting food ship­ments destined for Somalia.

“I’d move tomorrow if I could. Am I supposed to be run out of this neigh­bourhood because my yard is not maintained to the standards to which my neighbours think it should be?" Ms. Dickinson said, describing the neighbourhood as “snotty."

“Maybe I should start hanging my underwear across the front of the house and see what happens."

Ms. Dickinson describes her lawn as “a little uncared for, but the grass isn’t waist-high.

I refuse to spray my lawn illegally, so yeah, I have weeds . . . which makes me wonder about how their weed-free lawn is being main­tained."

A bylaw officer left a note telling her there was no violation, but to keep the lawn maintained and remove the green cart from the bottom of the dri­veway.

“My green bin wasn’t illegally on city property. It was just at the bottom of my driveway. My driveway’s verti­cal. It was just a lot easier to access there."

Ms. Dickinson doesn’t know which neighbour dropped a dime on her.

“There are quite a few of them who are very well-off, they are retired, they have their landscaping company, their lawns are impeccable," she said. “But I know that they know that my hus­band’s in the military. . . . They know he’s gone all the time."

Cmdr. Chris Dickinson’s ship left Halifax in July for a six-month deploy­ment, leaving his wife holding the, well, lawnmower. The front lawn is too steep for her 16-year-old son to mow, she said.

“It’s a hill with a retaining wall at the bottom," Ms. Dickinson said. The Quebec native is feel­ing overwhelmed with her hus­band at sea.

“I have no family. I’m all on my own. It’s not like he’s just off do­ing some little tour somewhere. He’s actually in the most danger­ous shipping lanes in the world. I’ve got two teenagers. I work. I travel some for my work. I’m not very big. I do not have big mus­cles and I am just finding it really tough to try to maintain this big, huge house without really any help."

It was “insulting" for a neigh­bour to complain to the city, “as if I’m just being lazy," said Ms. Dickinson, who misses the fam­ily’s former neighbourhood in Dartmouth, where she said peo­ple lent a hand when her hus­band was deployed.

She’s called a landscaping company for an estimate on how much a fall cleanup would cost. But the French translator re­sents the potential expense.

“I work freelance, so cash flow is irregular, shall we say."

Coun. Debbie Hum (Rocking­ham- Wentworth) said she wished the city’s bylaw officers would be as diligent in address­ing some of the more serious con­cerns in her district.

“I’ve got a few properties that are derelict, with garbage and household goods left (outside)," Ms. Hum said.

“It’s unfortunate that perhaps her neighbours aren’t speaking to her directly to just express their concer ns, rath­er than call the bylaw offices. Sometimes that’s all you need."

The city’s 10 bylaw officers are sometimes forced to deal with situations in which neighbours don’t communicate, said Tanya Phillips, manager of bylaw ser­vices.

“That’s, unfortunately, (one) of the things that we end up dealing with," Ms. Phillips said.
