By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Chrysanthemums.
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

    Well, no one seems to be interested in this one, but the answer is True.

    This was highlighted when Irish bookmakers Paddy Power offered money back to punters if sprint champion Oscar Pistorius "walks" away from killing girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. It prompted a number of complaints to the Advertising Standards Authority, who ordered the removal of the advert. It is now the most complained-about UK campaign ever.

    They were able to create this "novelty" bet because the company's headquarters is in Ireland and the trial is taking place in South Africa, but as I always say, "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should."
