With two ma­jor house fires over the past while, we were at the scene early enough, and feel the need to com­ment to read­ers they have to be aware that parked ve­hi­cles on the same street should be moved, al­beit safely, to a spot away from the scene, so that emer­gency crews can do their job.

Just when you thought you knew just about ev­ery­thing, here's a new tid­bit. Ever won­der what the name is for the area of your back that can't be reached for scratch­ing?

It is called Ac­nestis, and no, we didn't make that up .... it came out of the Reader's Digest.

In Cal­gary for a Fa­ther's Day event and saw reg­u­lar gas at 94.5 litre, while it is 114.5 litre in Drumheller.

We have to chuckle every time we see that Cana­dian Tire tele­vi­sion com­mer­cial with all the kids dressed up in cos­tumes look­ing like Fa­ther's Day gifts, and the kid with the drill cos­tume on has him un­able to move as he has tipped over. Very funny.

We were at a 65th wed­ding an­niver­sary the other day, and look­ing around, did a quick ad­di­tion of all present and how long each mar­riage lasted and came up with about 685 years. Granted, some spouses had passed away, but quite an achieve­ment for the 13 cou­ples present.

Since it in­volves tax­pay­ers money, guess we have the right to com­plain once again about the poor job and at least two sub­se­quent patch jobs done on the cul­vert re­place­ment on High­way 575 in front of the former En­cana lo­ca­tion. This has gone on far too long and poses a dan­ger to ve­hi­cles, when even the re­pairs are left un­done.

Not a good sit­u­a­tion. ◆◆◆
