Bits and Pieces: Lotto Hit Aids Small PrinterSeptember 2013 By Erik Cagle, Senior Editor
Anyway, Michelle and her husband, Kristian, are keen on returning the tortoise to its rightful owner. As writers, we're contractually obligated to use the word "keen" in any story about British folk. Use of the word in the United States pretty much died in the 1960s.
But, we digress. The Wells have been posting flyers and posters around town in the hopes of finding Cecil Turtle's parents. Michelle has contacted local vets and a pet shop. Alas, no one has been holding candlelight vigils for the safe return of their tortoise. My guess is that this couple, which did not have a pet previously, has one now.
We will provide more details on this developing story as they become available. Or, more likely, you've read the last of this tale. Just don't leave any nasty remarks in the comments section.
Fat Chance: The gang at Hopkins Printing, of Columbus, OH, decided to turn up the heat on themselves by taking health care reform—the battle of the bulge, in particular—quite seriously. The result: employees combined to shed a whopping 136 pounds in just four weeks.
Providing a kick to the garden variety health and wellness meetings, Hopkins Printing challenged itself with a friendly "Biggest Loser" competition. Teams of three squared off using fun monikers such as Chunky Monkeys, Chocoholics and—the winning squad—Weapons of Mass Reduction. Now, that's clever!
Weekly weigh-ins, healthy eating tips and prizes helped to make the experience an enjoyable one, not to mention slimming the waist sizes of this 100 percent employee-owned commercial printer. PI
