One member, Chris, says he turned to coffee when he gave up alcohol and cigarettes.
"I don't know what I'm going to do now," he says. "Probably work more."
TO THE VICTOR BELONGS THE SPOILS - UNFORTUNATELY
Romanian doctors have enlisted a cat and a hedgehog in a contest to find out which is better at catching the rats that chemicals can't kill.
Doctors in Bucharest have locked a cat and a hedgehog - a traditional peasant rat catcher - in separate hospital storehouses.
The animals' relative abilities will be assessed until December when the more efficient one will be assigned to full-time rat-catching duty.
A job really worth fighting over.
ZION'S LIQUOR BAN MAY TAKE THE CAKE
Demon rum is not welcome in Zion, Ill., not even as a flavoring in cake. And don't mention French food.
"Zion is a dry town by law, code, ordinance and referendum," says Alice Marshall, president of the Zion Historical Society.
And that, she says, applies to what Charlie Hauck has been doing right in the center of town at his Cake Co. of Zion.
Hauck has built a successful business selling cakes infused with such liquors as rum, sherry, cognac and Irish cream.
He bakes the cakes in a kitchen leased from the town in the old high school complex.
After Hauck was featured in a newspaper article, Marshall brought her complaint to the Zion City Council.
Marshall says there's precedent for such a crackdown.
In 1979, the historical society and other groups proposed bringing a French cooking school to the old Zion Hotel in an attempt to save the historic 1902 building.
That proposal died after city officials were told that some French food contained alcohol.
The hotel was torn down.
Now, that's really taking things seriously.
