Signs of the times

The best thing about the future is that it comes one day at a time. ~ Abraham Lincoln
• The average Canadian household is now about $40,000 wealthier than its American counterpart.

• British women now wear the highest heels in Europe. Are they compensating for being among the continent's shortest ladies?

• If you have those solar powered outdoor lights in your garden, you have a ready source of light for the next power outage. Just bring them inside and stick them in bottles.

• Criminals in Europe are now using a new type of wafer-thin card skimmer that's small enough to fit directly in an ATM's card slot, making it considerably more difficult to spot as it steals your bank card info.

• The letter advising that one has been offered a knighthood requires the conferee to check either a Yes or No checkbox to indicate whether they find this "agreeable." No, one may not do this online.

• Olympic organizers have a strict policy that prohibits athletes from Facebook and Twitter mentions of any brands that are not official sponsors of the London games.

• Now that new foreign strippers are banned from Canada, the peeler clubs are looking to hire 18 year-old students on a part-time basis.
Change is inevitable, except from vending machines.
