HUGS AND SLUGS: It’s a tie — Hugs 3, Slugs 3

If you helped someone find the money to go to a science fiction convention, there's a big hug for you here.

HUGS: To all the cyclists and walkers out there. Enjoy the fresh air and sunshine!

SLUGS: To whoever dumped their garbage at the corner of Crescent Bay Road and Highway 3A near Nine Mile. Placing a “FREE” sign on your junk does not justify the creation of such a mess. Clean it up!

HUGS: And good karma to the sweet ladies that planted a willow tree at our favorite beach spot to replace the one that got knocked down by the big storm. What a generous and altruistic thing to do for everyone who will enjoy it’s shade for years to come!

SLUGS: Big stinky slugs to all people idling their cars anywhere. The phone you’re playing with does not need the engine running to work. Your air-conditioned comfort is heating the planet up for everyone else! You’re setting a terrible example of wasteful habits by leaving your kids in an idling car, playing with their electronic devices.

HUGS: Big nerd hugs to Nelson’s Consortium of Ridiculously Kind Persons who raised money for me to attend the 73rd World Science Fiction Convention after two deaths in my family had drained my budget. You put a much-needed smile on a very sad author’s face. Community support at its finest.

SLUGS: Huge slimy slugs to the lowlifes who broke into our truck and stole our Sirius satellite system and favourite sunglasses. The device is trackable and has been reported to the provider, as well as the police, so I REALLY do hope you use it! Also hope to see you around as we have you on video! – Disgusted in Nelson
