READ ALL ABOUT IT
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.
