I’m moving to Mount Dora: “Under the revised [Mount Dora] ordinance, even if dogs bark for less than five minutes, their owners can be cited by the city if the dog barks for three periods in 24 hours.” Can they also do something about the constant use of power lawn tools? If I were king, I’d require everyone to use power tools that can be heard outside one’s own property lines during certain hours of the day (preferably 5:00 p.m. to 5:07 p.m. on Tuesdays only). That way, we’d all suffer through a few periods of cacophony every week, but the rest of the days would be reasonably quiet.

The event is timed precisely nine months ahead of Russia’s next year’s Constitution Day so that mothers “ideally should give birth on June 12.” . . . Prizes ranging from a television to a Russian-made all-terrain vehicle will be given out to people who give birth on June 12.
