The Drumheller Mail - - NEWS -

In the 1920's, the Knox United Church pro­duced a Ref­er­ence Book that was printed by this news­pa­per, and it in­cluded a lot of in­ter­est­ing in­for­ma­tion about Drumheller. Now, re­mem­ber this was a time when women were not al­lowed in bars, the town had a gir­dle shop and a hat shop, and there were lots of recipes from lo­cals. (The in­ter­est­ing part about the recipes is there are no oven tem­per­a­tures listed for any of them, be­cause no oven, in those days, pro­vided a con­sis­tent tem­per­a­ture, so it was a guess­ing game as to how long sup­per took to cook).

Also in­cluded was this page that pro­vided some pretty good bi­b­li­cal so­lu­tions to ev­ery day prob­lems. It works!! So many peo­ple tell us that our recipe for Rein­deer Dust is the best ever, and more im­por­tant, it works.

We con­tinue an­other great tra­di­tion when giv­ing away this unique present for Ru­dolph and his friends, and we give away so much of it, peo­ple have made it a nec­es­sary part of their Christmas. We hope more peo­ple re­mem­ber to come by next year. A reader ques­tioned our com­ment in this space about the dis­tance it takes to reach Canada Cus­toms after de­plan­ing at the re­cently opened Cal­gary In­ter­na­tional Ter­mi­nal. The rea­son­ing is that it is de­signed that way to get the cir­cu­la­tion go­ing in pas­sen­gers who have been in the plane and not mov­ing for a few hours, in the hopes of pre­vent­ing blood clots by mak­ing pas­sen­gers take a long walk. Any­one in a plane or even a ve­hi­cle should know enough to stretch their limbs at reg­u­lar in­ter­vals while seated, or take a reg­u­lar walk down the aisle, to ac­com­plish the same end. When ques­tion­ing air­port per­son­nel on this is­sue in the past, we were told the new ter­mi­nal would not make cus­tomers have to take such a long walk, com­pared to the old ter­mi­nal. Guess we were fool­ish to be­lieve them.
