TOWN NAME, TOWN NAME and another awesome TOWN NAME

If You “Start Me Up” I’ll Never Stop

I’ve been thinking a lot about

retirement lately. Not my own – I don’t

think that’s in the cards for a while, or

ever perhaps – but the topic has been

popping up more often than a vaccine

debate. (Okay, you’re right, nothing pops

up more often than a vaccine debate.)

It seems to me that there are

two types of retirees, those who are

incapable of sitting still and must find

some way to be productive, and those

who feel they’ve earned the right to golf

and read and relax and do no more than

they must. There is no right or wrong,

but I don’t find too many that fit into

that latter category unless or until they

have to. Almost everything is productive

when you think about it. Golfing is

good exercise (and constantly reminds

you that you’re not perfect), reading

is good for the mind, travelling is full

of experiences. It’s pretty hard to do

nothing at all.

We have a bunch of great folks that

deliver the Daytrippers once they’re

printed. It’s only one day every few

months but there has been a steady

line up of interested drivers for over two

decades, and they’re almost all retirees.

The average age is probably 70... I’m

expecting Joe Biden to call for a job

any day now. They get paid of course,

but the money isn’t their incentive -

it’s purpose. Most people want or need

purpose in life – they want to feel that

they’ve accomplished something at the

end of the day. They need a reason to

wake up in the morning. Bringing the

Daytripper from town to town isn’t a

bad way to spend the day, but there are

many others.

A friend asked me for advice last week

because he is retiring in the coming years

and wants to spend his time encouraging

the “electrification of transportation.”

Yeah, I had to think about that one

too! He wants to encourage people,

businesses and industries to switch over

to electric vehicles. It’s what he feels will

do the most to help the planet. That is

such an admirable goal. All this time I’ve

been thinking about being the next Mick

Jagger... a lofty and unlikely career move,

but equally challenging I think. I’d settle

for being the next Cliff Erickson, a local

guitar/vocal legend.

Another friend I spoke with retired

from the police force last year, but went

right back to work in a related capacity

because help was needed organizing the

battle against COVID-19. He’s just now

about to enter the world of retirement

and is pretty sure that he’ll want to do

next to nothing. We’ll see.

What really brought this to mind

though is the current struggle to find

employees. Would you like a job? I

don’t mean with Daytripping, I mean

anywhere. There are help wanted signs

everywhere these days. Some restaurants

have had to close on certain days due to

the lack of staff. Family run businesses

that usually have some additional staff

are having to do it all on their own, and

they’re getting worn out. For all the

retirees out there, I’m serious –- would

you like a job? We have an amazing

in Southwestern Ontario

work force out there among our retired

population, with folks that want to work,

just not too much. This is the perfect time

if you want to put in a few hours a week

somewhere. You’ll learn something new,

or teach them a few things, and your

time will really be valuable. You have

experience, you’re reliable and you grew

up with a work ethic that I’m guessing

outshines that of your grandkids.

Something else that brought this

topic to my mind is the passing of Ruth

Sharon at the age of 97. Ruth lived

outside of Windsor and was renowned

as “The Cookbook Lady.” Her columns

have been in each issue of Daytripping

for years as well as many other

publications. She spent years teaching

people to cook on stages and in person,

published numerous cookbooks and

helped many organizations publish

their own cookbooks as fundraisers. But

this was all after the age at which most

people retire. Before that Ruth travelled

extensively as a buyer for a chain of

stores, owned a beauty salon and was a

teacher at St. Clair College. She just never

stopped, and most of her work later in

life was out of the goodness of her heart.

As you may know, Daytripping is

largely written by our readers, people just

like you, and many of them were never

published until they were well into their

50’s, 60’s, 70’s and even 80’s. I’ve seen

first hand many times how something

like this can add a new and unexpected

chapter to a person’s life, to become an

unforgettable and rewarding experience.

Then there’s my wife Maggie. She’s

eligible to retire after 30 years of teaching

and may want me to spend some of that

time with her. She has no immediate

post retirement plans but I rest assured

that she’ll find a new calling (or she’ll be

calling me to come home from work).

On a sidenote, imagine for a moment

what you’d want to do with your time if

you won a ridiculous amount of money

– $100 million let’s say. More than you

could possible spend. Then ask yourself,

what is stopping you from doing that

now?

There’s a part of me that can’t wait

to retire, but only so that I can go on to do

other things. I did take the first step this

past year by starting a post retirement

publication. It’s a seniors magazine (go

figure) called Welcome To The Club, and

it features articles from over 25 years

of Daytripping archives. Daytripping

is too successful and too rewarding to

not continue, but we do have a lifestyle

change planned for it as well. Beginning

in 2022 there will be three issues/year

instead of five, with the first one coming

out in mid-April. Being forced to slow

down during the pandemic played a

hand in this decision – it turns out that

“not working” isn’t the worst thing in the

world (vaccine debates are!)

With a bit of luck, this will give me

more time to practice guitar, write hit

songs and connect with Mr. Jagger. Wish

me luck and I’ll do the same for you! I

think I’ll go buy a lottery ticket now.

Thanks for reading,

Apple Scraps

Vinegar

Many years have passed since

numerous books, a course at the library

and a circle of like-minded people

helped me discover and adopt what I call

simple living. Many of these habits are

better for your health, the environment

and your finances, sometimes all three.

A recent gift of more time on my hands

allowed me to revisit my techniques for

any areas of improvement. I wanted

to review the simple living material

I had saved and investigate a lot of

new ideas out there. The movements

for zero waste and plastic reduction

have great suggestions for alternatives

and substitutes. All this information

encourages me to continue my practices

so I leave the planet in better shape for

nature and those generations behind

me.

My parents also did a lot of this stuff

so I guess I can also look to the past for

ideas!

I try my best to think about, what

exactly is it I need? Although sometimes

I need to go to the Black Walnut Bakery

Café on Wortley Road to pick up a

coffee and a treat!

I guess I follow a lot of the R’s.

Reuse. Repurpose. Rethink. Refuse.

Repair. Reduce. Sometimes the cry is,

MacGyver It. Or maybe the Canadian

version is, Red Green It!

As much as I can, I try to do and make

everything myself. I see this lifestyle as

a creative outlet and most times a lot

of fun. We can accumulate so many

products, many packaged in plastic so

another good tip is to reduce the oneuse

items and opt for a product that has

many.

A need for applesauce in some

baking had me choosing an alternative

to buying this product most often

packaged in a plastic container. Being

that I usually have apples, a good local

choice, I made my own. Then looking

at the peels and cores remaining, I

Harrow Full Circle Thrift Store

wanted to use up everything. I found a

recipe online for apple scraps vinegar.

This product was something else I

needed as I use this amber, liquid gold

for everything from cleaning to cooking

and baking to rinsing my hair with it!

Making this vinegar by using what I

have would also eliminate yet another

plastic container.

I utilized a clean, glass, jam jar I saved

as the vessel to brew my recipe. Once

the scraps, distilled water and sugar

were inside, I covered the jar with a

coffee filter and reused an elastic to

secure the filter.

Then into the kitchen cupboard it

went. This spot was the hottest in my

apartment during an equally hot summer

season. As the days went by and I stirred

my concoction, an odour, reminding

me more of a brewery, emanated from

the cupboard! A taste test of the brew

made me think the same thing. Thus

the cupboard became known as Susan’s

Still. Further research for apple scraps

vinegar recipes, all of which seemed

to have different variations on sugar,

stirring times, etc., and I found mention

made that there is a “hooch” stage

leading up to the vinegar stage.

In the end, apple scraps vinegar was

born. I had discovered another product

I could make plus I had used what I

had, used up everything and avoided

another plastic container or two. Even

the apple bag became my garbage

bag as I followed the suggestion of not

purchasing more plastic bags just to

throw away.

Bit by bit, I am changing more and

more habits even after all these years.

Whether it’s rescuing a beautiful top at

the second hand store that needs a little

TLC that I can give or Red Greening

something, I don’t see that I will ever

tire of this stuff. At least I hope I never

stop and I am sure the Earth hopes I

won’t either! Live local!

John Sloane

Born in Chicago, John was deeply impressed by a summer vacation

that he spent visiting the highways and byways of Ontario as a boy. “I

have never forgotten the exciting experience I had seeing the

beautiful rural landscape and meeting so many friendly people,” says

John. “I returned home with a wider horizon and an enthusiasm to

paint new subjects.” After graduating from college, John began to

free-lance, acquiring commissions to paint illustrations for magazines and books. He and his wife Mary Anne

later fulfilled their dream of owning a place in the country. “I began to paint my favorite subjects of

old-fashioned country landscapes,” says John. For more than thirty years John has painted a popular series of

art calendars. John Sloane’s Country Seasons Deluxe Wall Calendars, Mini calendars and Weekly Planners

celebrate the beauty of the four seasons and the simple pleasures of country living. He also continues to

produce many popular greeting cards, jig-saw puzzles and quilting fabric collections. John Sloane’s

Country Seasons calendars are available at stores and online. To see more of John’s artwork or information

about how to purchase his calendars and fine art prints, visit his website at www.johnsloaneart.com. Also on

If we can but prevent the government from wasting the

labours of the people, under the pretence of taking care of

them, they must become happy.

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time

with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

He who knows nothing is closer to the truth than he whose

mind is filled with falsehoods and errors.

It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as

it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half

the wars of the world.

Advertisements contain the only truths to be relied on in a

newspaper.

Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude

from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man

with the wrong mental attitude.

When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and

hang on.

If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of

civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.

No man will ever carry out of the Presidency the reputation

which carried him into it.

The Trail of the Yellow Perch

By Frank Prothero, Port Stanley

PROUD

MEMBER OF

Build your own gourmet map.

It is a very simple truth that Ontario

is blessed with a greater quality and

diversity of home-grown food products

than any place on earth, and yet, how

often do we find ourselves at the chain

store buying fruits and vegetables

imported from distant lands, just for the

sake of convenience? Perhaps this is a

good time to explore the opportunities

available in the countryside and smaller

towns of Ontario.

Food in one regard, is like real

estate… location is everything. Where

would any apple butter lover want to

be in the fall other than Wellsley during

their annual harvest celebration? But let

us begin with one of the real diamonds

in our crown… Lake Erie yellow perch,

a dish that was chosen to nourish King

George VI and the Queen Mother on

their 1939 tour of Canada.

Admittedly, you may get a delicious

perch dinner in other

parts of Ontario,

but, location being

important, you will

do your best in those

ports along the north

shore of Lake Erie that

are home to a whole

fleet of vessels that

ply the waters of the lake in search of

the tastiest of fresh water fish. That is

most of the communities along this two

hundred mile stretch but if you want to

be sure, just look for the iconic Lake Erie

gill net tugs at the dock. They are your

assurance that the freshest and best

yellow perch are close at hand.

Kingsville, Wheatley, Erieau, Port

Stanley, Port Burwell, Port Dover,

Nanticoke, Port Maitland and Port

Colborne are home to restaurants

that offer this delicacy, caught by local

fishermen, processed by professionals

with years of experience in the trade and

prepared by cooks and chefs who take

pride in the dishes they serve. Most of

these fishing villages have retail outlets

that can provide you with fresh or frozen

filets for consumption at home.

The next time you are licking your

chops in anticipation of a tasty fish

dinner, take a scenic drive along the

north shore, look for those fish tugs that

are the hallmark of Ontario high quality

fish. You will be generously rewarded

for your efforts.

The trail of the yellow perch is just

one of dozens of options. Many have

heard of communities that have a

Butter Tart Route that takes you to

a number of small

bakeries that produce

their own version of

this tasty dessert. A

little research could

lead you to draw up

your own maps for

Mural by Harold Burton in Wheatley apples, peaches, pears,

onions, sweet corn and

dozens of other foods produced here in

Ontario and offering better quality than

any import.

So, the next time you reach for

that watermelon grown in Mexico or

California, think of the alternative, drive

a little bit further and enjoy Ontario’s

home grown food.

Pelee Island

The Legacy of Jack Miner

Before there

were three

breweries on the

main street of

Kingsville, and

18 local wineries to visit, and a ferry

to Pelee Island, there was Jack Miner.

Actually, a ferry may have existed, but

Jack Miner put Kingsville, Ontario on the

map a long, long time ago.

Nature plays a great role in tourism

everywhere on the planet and Canada’s

south shore is no exception. The first

and last pieces of land that birds and

butterflies can touch before the long

trip across Lake Erie are blessed with

this annual migration ritual. In this

area there are numerous conservation

areas, along with Pelee Island and Point

Pelee National Park, that attract nature

lovers wanting to be a

part of this experience.

This has been one of the

main tourist attractions

for over a century, but

a lot of this comes back

to one man, the “Father

of Conservation,” Jack

Miner.

John Thomas Miner

was born in Ohio but his

family moved to this area

in 1878 when he was 13.

He had no education and

was illiterate until the

age of 33, but as a hunter

and trapper he noticed that geese were

landing on their ponds as they migrated.

So in 1904 he created a pond on his

farm with seven clipped, tame Canada

geese. He was hoping that this would

attract wild geese and after four years of

effort they started coming. Before long,

geese and ducks were arriving in droves

and Jack Miner built a bigger pond. By

1913 the family farm had become a bird

sanctuary and it kept growing.

In the meantime he had begun

trapping and banding ducks with

aluminum tags to track their migration

habits. His first band in 1909 was

By Mark Moran, Daytripping

recovered in Anderson, South Carolina.

By 1915, “Wild Goose Jack” had adapted

his trap to capture Canada geese. They

were then fitted with a tag showing the

postal address of the conservationist. A

few words of scripture were also often

included.

This ability to track birds sparked

immense interest across the continent,

capturing the imagination of people. It

also led to the U.S. Migratory Bird Treaty

Act of 1918 between six countries,

making it unlawful to capture, sell, or kill

certain migratory birds. From there Jack

Miner went on to be an author, public

speaker and one of the best known

people on the continent, among the

likes of Ford, Edison and Lindbergh.

His fame made much of the movement

toward conservation possible.

The Jack Miner Bird Sanctuary was

among the first of its kind and awaits

your visit. The grounds and trails are

open sunrise to sunset year-round. The

Historic House and Museum are open

10am to 3pm on Saturdays and Sundays

(please see staff in the museum) from

June to November and during the week

from June to August. Viewings or tours

outside of regular hours are available by

appointment. Tours are free and there

are no admission fees to visit. Call 519-

733-4034 or visit www.jackminer.ca for

more information. The annual Migration

Festival will be held October 14-17.

It’s hard to imagine

that this is the same

building. The top photo

is of the Kingsville Train

Station around the time

we first brought copies of Daytripping

to Kingsville in 1995, and did an article

about what a shame it was to see this

grand structure on its last legs. The

bottom photo is the same building today,

the home to Mettawas Station where

Chef Anthony Del Brocco serves up fine

Italian and Mediterranean cuisine in

this beautiful setting.

In October 2008. Anthony and

Janet opened an upscale but intimate

restaurant and, in so doing, they

continued a heritage story started by

Hiram Walker over 100 years before.

We learn from their website that:

Hiram Walker commissioned the eminent architect Albert Kahn to design and build

the Kingsville Train Station to be ready when construction of the railway line reached

Kingsville from Windsor in the spring of 1889.

The interior layout included gentlemen’s and ladies’ waiting room, ticket office,

freight and baggage areas, a covered porch, port-cochere and a second floor bed

chamber.

Built out of stone, and complete with a slate roof, the station was equipped with gas

heating and lighting brought in from natural gas fields nearby.

Fares, round trip to Windsor were 80 cents for adults, 40 cents for children. To

serve his business interests, Hiram Walker built the Lake Erie, Essex, and Detroit

River Railway. For his recreation, he built a Grand Resort on the main line of the

Railway and on the shores of Lake Erie, The Mettawas Hotel which opened in 1889.

The elegant hotel no longer exists but the memories do live on. Designed by Mason and

Rice Architects, The Mettawas Hotel cost $250,000 to build. Guests would arrive by

rail at the Kingsville Railroad Station, then ride three blocks to the Mettawas Grounds

in the Hotel’s carriages.

You can visit this fine establishment, taking in the grandeur and history inside,

or enjoying the patio as cyclists pass by on the Chrysler Greenway Trail.

We’ll go from town to town. These maps will let you know where we are.

The Cookbook Lady

We have lost one of our favourite, most

prolific and most talented contributors.

Ruth Sharon, known to our readers and

countless others as “The Cookbook

Lady,” passed away in August.

Ruth’s recipe columns have been a

part of Daytripping’s fabric since we

first spoke back in 2001. She lived in

Lasalle, just south of Windsor, and her

enthusiasm and genuine love for cooking

and for life in general was evident always.

Ruth enjoyed a full life and career of not

only collecting and perfecting recipes but

also of sharing them.

As the author of

multiple fundraising

cookbooks, she has

left an indelible and

endearing mark on

her community. With

Ruth at the helm, over

200,000 fundraising

cookbooks have

been sold on behalf

of area schools,

churches and nonprofit

organizations

that provide care and

support for those

in need. She did all

this after retiring from teaching at St.

Clair College. When Ruth was asked to

put together a cookbook for Windsor’s

Assumption Church in 1992, she

realized that there were countless other

opportunities. Cookbooks were flying

off the shelves back

then and apparently

retirement didn’t

mean sitting idle for

her.

Ruth could

advise people on

every aspect of

creating a cookbook

for a fundraiser. If you wanted to have a

page showing conversions from pounds

to ounces —oh, she had that for you. A

page of substitute ingredients—she had

By Mark Moran, Daytripping

“You are what you eat

and what you eat today

that, too. She had countless ideas to fill

any extra pages.

She’s also published seven Good

Home Cooking Books (Ontario’s Best

Selling Little Cookbooks) of her own,

one in conjunction with Zehrs where

she was teaching cooking classes, with

the proceeds going to charity. She’s

been recognized with a “Hospitality

Hero” award as an ambassador for

her countless contributions to the

community, been featured at convention

workshops, done stage cooking at home

shows, and has been

a guest speaker on

radio and television

numerous times.

In addition to

Ruth’s impressive

accomplishments

and community

service, she also

leaves quite a brood

of loving offspring:

six children, 17

grandchildren, 25

great-grandchildren

and 11 great-greatgrandchildren.

She was a firm

believer that, “You are what you eat and

what you eat today will walk and talk

with you tomorrow.”

We can’t thank Ruth enough for

what she’s meant to Daytripping and

to so many charitable organizations.

Her columns

will continue to

be featured in

Daytripping. There

are some we

haven’t published

and, since recipes

are timeless, many

we can bring back

so that you can learn from one of the

best.

We will miss Ruth Sharon deeply. She

was an inspiration to all who met her.

BEER

FACTS

After he won the Nobel

Prize, Niels Bohr was given

a perpetual supply of beer

piped into his house.

The Code of Hammurabi

decreed that bartenders

who watered down beer

would be executed.

At the Wife Carrying World

Championships, first prize is

the wife’s weight in beer.

A cloud near the

constellation Aquila

contains enough ethyl

alcohol to fill 400 trillion

pints of beer.

Coined in the early 1900s,

the word “alcoholiday”

means leisure time spent

drinking.

The builders of the Great

Pyramid of Giza were paid

with a daily ration of beer.

See our Cork Screws & Craft Brews

page for local breweries!

Dearest creature in creation,

Study English pronunciation.

I will teach you in my verse

Sounds like corpse, corps, horse, and worse.

I will keep you, Suzy, busy.

Make your head with heat grow dizzy.

Tear in eye, your dress will tear.

So shall I! Oh hear my prayer.

Just compare heart, beard, and heard,

Dies and diet, lord and word,

Sword and sward, retain and Britain.

(Mind the latter, how it's written)

Now I surely will not plague you

With such words as plaque and ague.

But be careful how you speak:

Say break and steak, but bleak and streak;

Cloven, oven, how and low,

Script, receipt, show, poem, and toe.

Hear my say, devoid of trickery,

Daughter, laughter, and Terpsichore,

Typhoid, measles, topsails, aisles,

Exiles, smiles, and reviles;

Scholar, vicar, and cigar,

Solar, mica, war and far;

One, anemone, Balmoral,

Kitchen, lichen, laundry, laurel;

Gertrude, German, wind and mind,

Scene, Melpomene, mankind.

Billet does not rhyme with ballet,

Bouquet, wallet, mallet, chalet.

Blood and flood are not like food,

Nor is mould like should and would.

Viscous, viscount, load and broad,

Toward, to forward, to reward.

And your pronunciation's OK

When you correctly say croquet,

Rounded, wounded, grieve and sieve,

Friend and fiend, alive and live.

Ivy, privy, famous; clamour

And enamour rhyme with hammer.

River, rival, tomb, bomb, comb,

Doll and roll and some and home.

Stranger does not rhyme with anger,

Neither does devour with clangour.

Souls but foul, haunt but aunt,

Font, front, wont, want, grand, and grant,

Shoes, goes, does. Now first say finger,

And then singer, ginger, linger,

Real, zeal, mauve, gauze, gouge, and gauge,

Marriage, foliage, mirage, and age.

Query does not rhyme with very,

Nor does fury sound like bury.

Dost, lost, post and doth, cloth, loth.

Job, nob, bosom, transom, oath.

Though the differences seem little,

We say actual but victual.

Refer does not rhyme with deafer.

Foeffer does, and zephyr, heifer.

Mint, pint, senate and sedate;

Dull, bull, and George ate late.

Science, Arabic, Pacific,

Science, conscience, scientific.

Liberty, library, heave and heaven,

Rachel, ache, moustache, eleven.

We say hallowed, but allowed,

People, leopard, towed, but vowed.

Mark the differences, moreover,

Between mover, cover, clover;

Leeches, breeches, wise, precise,

Chalice, but police and lice;

Camel, constable, unstable,

Principle, disciple, label.

Petal, panel, and canal,

Wait, surprise, plait, promise, pal.

Worm and storm, chaise, chaos, chair,

Senator, spectator, mayor.

Tour, but our and succour, four.

Gas, alas, and Arkansas.

Sea, idea, Korea, area,

Psalm, Maria, but malaria.

Youth, south, southern, cleanse and clean.

Doctrine, turpentine, marine.

Compare alien with Italian,

Dandelion and battalion.

Sally with ally, yea, ye,

Eye, I, ay, aye, whey, and key.

Say aver, but ever, fever,

Neither. leisure, skein, deceiver.

Heron, granary, canary.

Crevice and device and aerie.

Face, but preface, not efface.

Phelgm, phlegmatic, ass, glass, bass.

Large, but target, gin, give, verging,

Ought, out, joust and scour, scourging.

Ear, but earn and wear and tear

Do not rhyme with here but ere.

Seven is right, but so is even,

Hyden, roughen, newfew Stephen,

Monkey, donkey, Turk and jerk,

Ask, grasp, wasp, and cork and work.

Pronunciation -- think of Psyche!

Is a pling stout and spikey?

Won't it make you lose your wits,

Writing groats and saying grits?

It's a dark abyss or tunnel:

Strewn with stones, stowed, solace, gunwale,

Isligton and Isle of Wright,

Housewife, verdict and indict.

Finally, which rhymes with enough --

Tough, through, plough, dough, or cough?

Hiccough has the sound of cup.

Look for the answer in our Christmas 2021 issue!

From our last issue

The Hint, from our

Summer 2021 issue, was...

This is one of many murals by

the late, great Allen Hilgendorf,

who has been on many of our

covers in the past.

The Answer is:

This particular mural by Allen is

in Mildmay, and you can find

many, many more in Huron, Grey

& Bruce Counties among others.

The Hint is:

This might pop into

view as you head south

Perspective

By Dave Steadman, Brigden

My father worked for a Mr. Tye when

he was a young lad back in the ‘40s. Dad

would have been in his early teens. As

the story goes, one day Dad and Mr. Tye

caught a bunch of young “hooligans”

in the melon patch, smashing all the

pumpkins, squash and watermelons.

Dad assisted Mr. Tye punishing these

fellows by stuffing smashed juicy

melons into their bib overalls and thus

sending them home to their parents.

I had heard this story many times over

the years. Then one day I overheard my

dad and a neighbour gentleman having

a real good laugh. They were both in

their 70’s. As I listened closer it became

apparent that they were rehashing the

event of their youth. One summer day

these two, along with their buddies

had been in the melon patch and were

caught red-handed by Mr. Tye. Wet,

gooey, smashed melon and pumpkin

filled britches and all, they were sent

home to suffer their punishment.

I pointed out that this was not the

version I had heard numerous times over

the years. Both senior gentlemen and

myself had another really good laugh.

It’s amazing how the

perspective of a story

changes!

It’s cold and wet and rainy.

A “deary day” to say the least.

I swear I’ll not go out there,

It’s not fit for man nor beast.

I’ll sit in here, and whine instead.

Where I am warm and dry.

Sit looking out our window

As this rainy day goes by.

I do enjoy the Autumn though.

The coloured leaves and things.

The beef I have with Autumn’s

New Owner

The Tire

One year, at Brock University, there were these two

guys who were taking Chemistry and who did pretty

well on all the quizzes and the midterms and labs, etc.,

such that going into the final they had a solid "A."

These two friends were so confident going to the

final that the weekend before the finals week (even

though the Chem final was on Monday), they decided to go

up to Muskoka and party with some friends up there. So

they did this and had a great time. However, with their

hangovers and everything, they overslept all day Sunday and didn't make it

back to Brock until early Monday morning.

Rather than taking the final then, they found Professor Bonk after the final

and explained to him why they had missed the final. They told him that they

went up to Muskoka for the weekend, and had planned to come back in time to

study, but that they had a flat tire on the way back and didn't have a spare and

couldn't get help for a long time and so were late getting back to the campus.

Bonk thought this over and then agreed that they could make up the final the

following day. The two guys were elated and relieved. So, they studied that

night and went in the next day at the time that Bonk had told them. He placed

them in separate rooms and handed each of them a test booklet and told them

to begin. They looked at the first problem, which was something simple about

molarity and solutions and was worth 5 points. "Cool" they thought, "this is

going to be easy." They did that problem and then turned the page.

They were unprepared, however, for what they saw on the next page. It said:

(for 95 points) Which tire?

Ah, Those Magnificent Monarchs

One September afternoon, exploring the

north shore of Pelee Island, we stumbled

upon a miracle – hundreds of brilliantlycoloured

monarch butterflies, clustered in

the trees. These insect “snowbirds” were

taking a rest stop on the first lap of an ageold

migration south to balmier climes.

Happily, those mysteries begin right

here in southwestern Ontario. Every fall,

the butterflies, which glide on thermals,

will travel up to 3,000 kilometers from Lake

Erie’s shoreline, across the continental

United States to their winter home in

Central Mexico.

The monarchs that leave Ontario usually

have never made the trip before. Yet some

special instinct draws them to the same

forests - and sometimes the same trees

– from which their ancestors began the

journey north to Canada, often three to

four generations earlier.

In recent years, their populations have

been in decline. A major reason is that

milkweed plants, primary food source

for the butterfly larvae, are disappearing.

Many places listed milkweed plants as

noxious weeds so they were systematically

destroyed. Nature lovers are now creating

butterfly gardens – and those gardens

should always include milkweed plants.

Even these well-intentioned gardeners,

Dr. McNeil warns, don’t always appreciate

the caterpillar stage of the monarch’s

development. Saying no to the presence

of the caterpillars, the insect specialist

notes, is like someone saying, “Well, I like

adults but not babies.” Those ugly striped

yellow, white and black caterpillars, given

time, form a chrysalis. That chrysalis will

be transformed into a breathtaking black

and orange butterfly that will flit over our

garden or country fields.

Even the migrating monarchs who do

reach sunny Mexico face some hazards.

In recent years, one of the most serious

hazards has been illegal logging, which

has deforested the habitats where the

monarchs have traditionally wintered.

Another danger is light frosts, which can

prove fatal to the fragile insects.

With the growing interest in the

environment, Mexicans have realized that

the migrating monarchs are a welcome ecotourism

attraction. Parties of nature lovers,

who stay in local hotels and dine at local

eateries, are guided through the mountains

to view fir trees literally covered by millions

of monarchs. As clouds of butterflies rise

up, visitors can actually hear the beating of

their tiny wings. Two of Mexico’s famous

Phobias… The fear of darkness is called scotophobia

By Alice Gibb, London - from Daytripping Sept-Oct 2010 issue

monarch sanctuaries are

Santuario Sierra Chincua

and Santuario de la Mariposa

Monarca El Rosario – both with

websites outlining their attractions.

Groups are now very actively

campaigning to preserve Mexico’s

threatened butterfly habitats as well as

planting seedlings to replace the trees

claimed by illegal loggers.

As spring arrives, the monarch

butterflies become obsessed with

reproduction, again starting the long return

flight to destinations in North America.

Few monarchs ever survive the year-long

round trip, but somewhere along the route

they lay eggs to begin the life cycle again,

creating new progeny who will delight the

eye. Ah, those mysterious, magnificent

monarchs.

Wildlife Rehabilitation

The baby squirrel was squirming and

its tiny feet were glued to my fleece like

Velcro.

It was lunchtime, and he was

enthusiastically sucking down his

syringe of formula and making

contented squeaky noises. After

chopping up some apple and peanuts

for his dish, it was the baby bunnies’

turn. It was time to clean out their crate

and give them fresh water and greens.

Apparently, dandelions are delicious.

You just can’t avoid the aww! factor

with baby bunnies. They’re even

more charming than Beatrix Potter’s

illustrations. Even their poop is cute.

The juvenile groundhogs pop out

of their hidey box when they see me

coming with strawberries and clover.

They have excellent table manners and

eat their greens delicately, like the ladies

who lunch.

Meanwhile, the opossums are

swinging in their hammock looking

pretty chill and enjoying their chopped

veggies. How cool to have your thumbs

on your back feet and to have such a

useful tail that can grab a snack.

But these are not pets. They’re

wild animals temporarily boarding

at Salthaven Wildlife Rehabilitation

& Education Centre until they have

recovered from misfortune, typically

encounters with family pets (I’m

looking at you, Fluffy and Fido), vehicle

collisions, or with birds, window

strikes, or until they are old enough to

be released to spend their lives in the

woods and fields.

Throughout the year, kind-hearted

people bring in injured, abandoned, or

orphaned birds, mammals, reptiles, and

amphibians to the centre to get care

until they can be set free.

Some need medication, splints or

other treatment that the senior team

and consultant vets can provide; others

need a quiet, dark space to recover

from a head injury, but many are just

too young to strike out on their own and

need to stay at animal summer camp

for a few weeks.

Not all of them make it, and

sometimes I blubber a little on the way

home. This is what happens when you

become friends with other furry and

feathered members of our phylum. If I

could marshal super powers and make

them all better just by sheer force of

will, I would gladly do that.

We volunteers chop food, clean crates

or cages, do laundry, wash tiny dishes,

and fill the wading pools for the ducks.

Every shift I learn something new and

amazing about some of our

By Catherine Blake, London

roommates on planet earth. Certain

birds will only eat from the ground,

while others will only eat if the food is

stuck onto a piece of bark. Some are

vegetarian but some prefer bugs and

worms.

I’m not going to lie to you. This is not

a gig for the fastidious. There is a lot of

poop, but that’s a small price to pay for

all that cuteness, right?

And it’s true that this is downstream

work. Helping to save a bunny or a bird

will not fix the monumental issues of

habitat loss or the devastating effects of

climate change, but I pin my hopes on

it making a difference to the individual

creature right in front of me.

Meanwhile, the bird room is abuzz

with chirps and squawks. I provide

housekeeping and short order cook

services for today’s avian guests: robins,

blue jays, cardinals, a pigeon, a warbler,

and a yellow-bellied sap sucker. The

lunch special is a mélange of seeds,

some berries, and for dessert, some

mealworms—how delectable.

Out in the flight pen, the gaggle

of goslings are fuzzy, gregarious, and

hilarious. They waddle-race around the

space, moving in synch like a school

of fish. They cheep, whistle, and tussle

with each other like a schoolyard of

grade three boys. Oooh a dish of water!

Let’s all try to get in it!

By mid-summer these guys will be

out in the yard, paddling in a wading

pool, chasing each other and practising

their aviation skills, and by early fall

they’ll be gone. I’m sure when they

reach Florida they’ll send us a thank

you note.

Last year, I fell in love with some

rescued cedar wax wing nestlings in

their little knitted nest. We tweezer

fed them, then dish fed them, hovered

over them while they gained weight

and practised flying, and then finally,

release day arrived. We took them out

of the carrier one by one and opened

our hands and cheered when they flew

up and off into the cedar hedge. They

hung around for a couple of weeks,

swooping by to say hi before they finally

left for good.

I had a little hole in my heart when

they left and I missed them, but just like

Opie Taylor learned in a classic Andy

Griffith Show episode when he had to

take care of some baby birds, their cage

looked really empty but “don’t the trees

seem nice and full?”

Well, exactly.

Following the birth of his new sister, a

little boy shocks and offends his parents

by using “unacceptable” language,

but it’s the only way he can attract the

attention he so desperately needs from

his busy parents.

An intelligent fourteen-year-old

girl leaves home to stay with an older,

married girl friend - not because she’s

irresponsible or doesn’t love her parents,

but because “no one in my family ever

tries to understand me. They never quit

criticizing long enough to allow me to

explain my problems.”

A middle-aged couple decide to

separate after thirty years of marriage

because, as the wife puts it, “we have

become as remote as two complete

strangers.”

Every day we hear unhappy stories

like these involving sad and confused

people who have ceased to communicate

effectively with one another, people

who have lost their sense of belonging,

who feel neglected and misunderstood

because no one takes the time to listen

to them.

“But I’m no good at conversation,

so it’s no use my trying,” explained

an acquaintance recently when we

were discussing the problems of

communicating. But no one has to rely

on the power of words to communicate

with others” for the art of being a good

conversationalist is, first and foremost,

being a good, receptive listener.

Unfortunately, most of us are

inclined to overlook the true value

of receptive listening. In our hectic

demanding lives we’ve forgotten how

to invite participation and involvement

simply by listening. We really don’t

know just how our loved ones, our

friends and neighbours feel, what their

personal dreams and frustrations are. A

typical example is the case of Old Larry,

as we affectionately called the elderly

gentleman who lived alone in a small

house on the outskirts of our town.

When Old Larry died a few years

ago, his only daughter- who had not

seen or communicated with her father

for several years decided to auction the

contents of the old house.

On going through the rooms she

found to her amazement, not the odds

and ends of familiar things remembered

from her girlhood days, but a large

collection of beautifully carved wild

animals and birds, all lovingly made and

expertly finished by her father.

“He must have nursed this dream for

his retirement,” his daughter said later,

shaking her head sadly. “And to think, in

all these years, I never knew he had this

talent. It never occurred to me that he

was interested in anything but his farm.

I guess I didn’t really know him at all!”

How many people do any of us really

know? And how many people really

know us? The answer must surely lie

in the fact that we’ve forgotten how to

communicate.

If we want to change this situation

we should begin now to train ourselves

in the art of listening, really listening. We

must reach out to others, be receptive

to their needs and problems and try to

encourage them to reach out to us in

return. Only in this way will we be able to

communicate fully one with another and

open the floodgates of understanding.

WORDS

OF ADVICE

... from the Pessimist!

No good deed goes unpunished.

Leakproof seals - will.

Self starters - will not.

Interchangeable parts - won't.

90% of everything is crud.

Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.

If you're feeling good, don't worry, you'll get over it.

You will always find something in the last place you look.

The chance of of bread falling with the buttered side down is directly

proportional to the cost of the carpet.

No matter how long or hard you shop for an item, after you've bought it, it

will be on sale somewhere cheaper.

No one's life, liberty, or property are safe while the legislature is in session.

The other line always moves faster.

In order to get a loan, you must prove first that you don't need it.

Anything you try to fix will take longer and cost more than you thought.

If you fool around with a thing for very long you will screw it up.

A $300.00 picture tube will protect a 10¢ fuse by blowing first.

If it jams - force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.

A tool dropped while repairing a car will roll underneath to the exact center.

The repairman will never have seen a model quite like yours before.

When a broken appliance is turned on for the repairman, it’ll work perfectly.

Build a system that even a fool can use, and only a fool will use it.

Everyone has a scheme for getting rich that will not work.

There's never time to do it right, but there's always time to do it over.

Phobias… The fear of English people and things is called Anglophobia

Sept-Oct 2021


TOWN NAME, TOWN NAME and another awesome TOWN NAME

I called my mother “Mommy,”

slipping into “Mom” mode when I

started school. When I write about her I

always refer to her as Mother.

Her quiet strength balanced that of

my father’s blustery nature, making her

the one we all went to when troubles, big

and small, weighed upon our shoulders.

As a small child, suffering the torments

of the red measles, I have a faded

recollection of her hovering over my crib,

in a darkened room, as she worried over

my fevered, little body. That seems to be

my earliest memory of Mother.

I can still recall the safeness of Mother.

Her kind understanding and soothing

words could take the hurt out of scraped

knees and elbows; a cat that had just

died; a dead bunny rabbit that never

made it across the road; a mean word

from a friend. The only time she seemed

out of control, bursting forth a rage so

unlike her, was at the sight of a snake.

She would summon an axe and shovel,

whereby she would sever the head of the

innocent creature, shovelling it up and

throwing it out onto the gravel road that

went by our house. Her comment was

always the same, “That snake’s tail will

wiggle until sundown.” Her face flushed,

her back straight, shovel in her grip, she’d

usher me back into the yard, closing the

gate behind us. I, of course, kept checking

that poor headless fellow and if a car did

not squash him, true to Mother’s word,

his twitching tail continued until the sun

went down on the massacre.

An uncle and aunt adopted a baby

girl when I was about seven. This was

a new word to me—adoption. At the

tender age of seven, I was filled with

wonder and then sudden horror when

my darling sister told me that I too

was adopted. I entered the house from

Mother

By laurie burrowsbreakey, Southampton

the yard, where my sister and I had

been playing dolls and burst into tears

storming at my mother that she was

not my real mother. My poor mom was

taken totally off guard, and her stern

question was, “Where did you ever get

that idea?”

“Donna!” I sobbed. Mother and

my brother Neil had been talking

at the kitchen table and now Neil

burst into laughter as Mother loudly

summoned my sister from the yard. I

don’t remember Mother reprimanding

Donna, I just remember Neil rumbling

my hair, as I realized I’d been duped by

my darling sister.

Mother was not a pushover—you

always knew when you went too far.

One summer evening as we washed up

the supper dishes, I grew bored with the

task of drying them and used the excuse

of “the call of nature” to leave my job.

Putting down my tea towel, I headed out

to the toilet which was attached to the

woodshed. Now rural toilets as a rule are

not a nice place to go, but my mom made

ours very presentable. Scrubbing it each

spring and redoing the walls with left over

bits of wall paper and sitting nearby, the

Eaton’s catalogue. The wood shed door

was left open into the back yard where

the kittens tumbled and played, so if one

left the toilet door open, sunshine and

views of the garden could be enjoyed.

Now since I really did not need to use

the facilities, I sat in that antiquated

toilet on the bench with the lids closed,

idly leafing through the old catalogue,

looking out now and then, chuckling to

myself at the antics of the cats playing in

the slowly setting sun. After some time, I

heard the kitchen door slam and Mother

quickly walking through the wood shed,

toward me, and without a word she shut

the door and locked it. My view was

taken away and I sat and contemplated

my selfish ways for perhaps ten minutes,

before Mother returned and unlocked the

door. No words were spoken, but I never

neglected the drying of dishes again.

Mother was the youngest of ten

siblings, many of whom lived in the

Hespeler area. So it was not uncommon

to have drop in company or if Father

felt generous and had enough energy

left from toiling on the farm from sunup

to sundown, he would treat my mom

with a Sunday trip to visit relatives. I

remember the excitement of receiving

letters from Mother’s sisters in far off

Michigan. Every week there would be

one or two in the mail box and it was

with great importance that I would be

delegated to retrieve them, running back

shouting, “Mom you’ve got a letter from

Aunt Polly!” She would beam at me with

her warm smile, especially when the

letter was from Aunt Polly, and pocket

the letter in her apron saving the news,

reading it to us all after lunch. If the news

included an upcoming visit from either of

her two favourite sisters, Mother would

go into cleaning mode scouring even the

remotest corners of that old stone house.

The multitude of things I remember

about my mother have stayed with me

throughout my life. I did not have her

for a long time but it was quality all the

way. Memories of Mother can still bring

a smile at the abundant happy times,

or a sob remembering the loss of her,

to my ever grateful being that I was her

daughter.

Too Much Debt

By Elaine Ballantyne, Bright

Page 26

I used to

laugh at people

that hung their

laundry in frosty

weather. Now

I’m one of them.

Buying in

bulk? Now

I shop elbow

deep at the Bulk

Barn.

Running loads in the dishwasher?

Now my daughters and I work as a team

to clean the dishes.

I’ve become obsessed with cutting

corners in my quest to keep within

budget. It all began when I came across

a website based on frugal living. This

website is published by a woman whose

family paid off $20,000 worth of debt in

five years on only an average income of

$22,000.00! This penny-pinching diva

has inspired me. My new mantra is: “I

must! I must! I must get out of debt!”

The media reports that we are in a

global financial crisis. I am in a local

financial crisis. I need to get back to

living within my means. I need to be

able to better decipher between needs

and wants.

Recently I was talking to a “seasoned”

woman friend. We got talking about this

present global financial crisis. Then we

got talking about the past. My friend

said it perfectly when she stated: “If

you didn’t have the money, you simply

didn’t buy it.”

Back in the day, there was no such

thing as Mastercard or Visa. For

example, when my older friend got

Phobias… The fear of fear is called phobophobia

married, her father credited her and her

husband with 24 chickens and a heifer

that liked to kick. This friend’s lifelong

frugal living inspires me.

In the 1920s, before the government

had hooked up farmhouses with electrical

lines, my maternal grandmother grew

up with no hydro.

“We used lots of blankets and an old

wood stove,” I recall my grandmother

saying. My grandmother’s family was

so frugal that not only did they order

necessities from the Sears catalogue,

but they also used it for that essential

paper in the outhouse. Talk about thrift!

A couple of weeks ago I was in Sobey’s

planning my weekly menu. I was

bellyaching to Trudy the cashier that I

was tired of eating mac and cheese five

times a week. “I just don’t know about

this budgeting thing!” I lamented.

Trudy leaned over the conveyer belt

and spoke softly in my ear. “Just a

gentle reminder Elaine, that if you have

food in your refrigerator, clothes on your

back, a roof over your head and a place

to sleep, you are richer than 75 percent

of this world.”

Yeah, enough said.

I must continue on in my perseverance

while I slash my expenses and gain

control over my debit card. I dream

that my frugal living will help me arrive

at a place called financial bliss. I think

Gail Vaz-Oxlade, the past host of the TV

program, “Till Debt Do Us Part,” says

it the best: “Don’t spend more money

than you make. You can have anything

you want, anything, if you’re prepared

to work hard for it.”

You’ll discover E&E’s Cloth &

Creations in a quaint, brick building in

the centre of the small town of Newton.

They’ve been selling quality fabrics to

people from near and far for over 30

years now. Many people make quilts out

of the cloth, but also clothing, masks,

purses, receiving blankets, and more. It

is a store where they might know you by

name—that very small-town feel.

E&E stands for the names of the

owners Edgar & Emmaline Wagler.

Emmaline’s sister Darlene helps in the

store as well as Emmaline’s daughter

Lanelle.

They also do zipper repairs,

sewing machine repairs, Newtex

dry cleaning, custom curtain orders

and custom hand and machine

quilting. The Wagler family also

sells garden vegetable seeds,

sewing machines, and pillow forms.

“I enjoy the interaction with my

customers. That’s a big part of it.

We have the post office as well,

so then I get to meet every new

person that comes to town. I enjoy

that. Just the customer service is

what I love to do,” said Emmaline

Wagler.

In 31 years, there is a wider

range of fabric than years ago. You

have choices of solids and prints—

Canadian prints, beach fabric, NHL

flannel, travel theme with the Eiffel

tower on it, flowers, butterflies,

stars, you name it.

Cloth & Creations

of Newton

By Wendy Rutherford, Baden

In the fall and the winter they have

classes, such as making placemats and

table runners and more. It is yet to be

determined when those will start up

again. They are now selling a kit with

blocks to make a quilt, which is a good

way of passing the time.

During COVID shutdowns the post

office can be open, but they need

to bring bolts of cloth to the front of

store. (curbside pick-up) “It has been

challenging and a lot of work, but it

works,” said Wagler, “A lot of people

have been sewing!”

DOGS

By Agnes Burroughs, Dorchester

How many of you lucky folks out there

have a family pet? If you’re really lucky

that pet is the universal favourite—a

dog. Your dog doesn’t care if you have

a good day at work or a bad day. They

will just lick your hand and be by your

side through good or bad. No need to

explain anything to Spot or Rover or

Celia. Those friends will be there no

matter what is happening in your life.

We always had a dog when we

were growing up, and it wasn’t like we

needed another mouth to feed. With

eight children running around our dog

never needed to be walked. He just

was always there wherever we kids

congregated and played.

Our dog was our protector—no need

to fear anyone stealing us out of the

yard. He was our playmate—who else

would chase a ball continuously for two

hours with nary a complaint? And our

greeter when we arrived home from

school, but best of all our friend.

My mother was always partial to

German Shepherds with their long

pointy ears, big tongues and slim bodies.

As we were leaving for the beach one

day a large German Shepherd wandered

on to our property. Mother took one look

at the hungry and apparently homeless

beauty and saw the potential no one

else did. She promptly went back in

the house and cut off a large chunk of

our Sunday roast we were supposed to

be eating for supper when we returned

home. She admonished the dog to eat,

drink and be sure to stay there till we

got back. No one was more surprised

than me, when we came back after a

long, long day to see Rin Tin Tin lying

on the front step as if he belonged

there. That dog stuck with us through a

variety of homes and job changes and

never failed to protect us and stay on

the front porch when we went away.

That dog had a sixth sense about folks

and you could always tell if a person

was welcome or not by his reaction to

visitors. Gentle as a kitten but only if he

liked your looks. We trusted his instincts

and were always safe.

For many years, our little children’s

cousins would come to play for a

whole day filled with fun and games

and frolicks with our dog, Buddy. Their

stepfather came to pick them up one

day and they weren’t too pleased about

having to leave and started to cry and

whine. I guess patience was wearing thin

at this point and the stepdad grabbed

one of the girls by the arm to speed their

departure. All day the girls had been

happy, carefree, laughing and playing,

and this big mean person was making

one of them cry. Buddy was not happy

and showed his displeasure by clamping

his jaws around the stepdads wrist. I

noted all this and told him to let go of

the child and back away to the truck. He

let go of the child, the dog let go of him

and everyone proceeded to the truck. He

never came back to pick them up ever

again. To me, Buddy was justified and

showed good judgement of character.

Our dogs pretty well start out in the

porch or garage, but someone

invariably sneaks them

in under the table and

who, but bad old Mom,

would put them outside.

Honestly someone has

to clean up their big,

old slobbers and

their constant under

footedness. Guess

who? Me.

Buddy One was

the biggest, old dog but a real softy at

heart. If we had to take him to the vet

for his shots he would howl all the way

there, get his shots and return home

with not a peep. After many years of

this, we finally found a big animal vet

who would come to the farm and give

the dog his shots. Certainly saved our

hearing and the stress for Old Bud.

One time our crazy Buddy ran up and

out of the ditch in front of a very fast

car. The vet said the best thing was to

keep him confined until his hip could

heal. This necessitated carrying him

back and forth to the barn at least three

times a day for several weeks. But he did

indeed get better and ran many more

miles, following whatever implement

was in the field. He would follow you

until you couldn’t stand it anymore and

pick him up into the cab. This worked

out fine until he thought he

should be right up front

of the steering wheel.

Oh well, he just wanted

to be where we were.

When we learned

our Old Buddy Two

had cancer, we

weren’t sure what we

should do. His chances

were slim according to

the vet and he might not

make it through the surgery. Our son

chose to let him live out his last days

here at home with us. Bud was buried

with his dog tags so “God would know

who he was when he got to heaven.”

They leave a paw print on your heart.

We make it using family recipes and

wholesome ingredients. If we bring do

bring something in, we try to use local

people who do the same.

Reason # 2 You don’t have to buy a

family package if you want just one bun

for your hotdog or just one cookie for

your walk home. We are happy to serve

you… just one.

Reason #3 Mix it up! Our regular

lineup includes five kinds of tarts, six

kinds of squares, ten kinds of cookies

when there are even more. Pricing allows

you to mix it up within each product

assortment. We want you to try it all!

Reason #4 If you like a great variety

say that?) We love a good chat, laugh,

tease, pun and joke. We think our service

is second to none.

trip. We are stuck in the past and we love

it. If you haven’t been here for 20 years we

have tried to arrange that your favourites

are still here when you come to visit.

You have to learn how to fail in order

to succeed. Here are some famous

failures from history.

When people speak of a “fear of

failure,” they are really describing a

hazy free-floating malaise and feeling

of worry or discontent which induces

lethargy and explains lack of effort. This

malaise protects us from the anxiety that

comes with freedom and taking risks.

We tranquilize our lives by limiting the

amount of anxiety that we experience by

not trying anything new or different that

might fail.

Whenever we attempt to do something

and fail, we end up doing something else

or producing something else. You have

not failed; you have produced some other

result. The two most important questions

to ask are: “What have I learned?” and

“What have I done?”

Failure is only a word that human

beings use to judge a given situation.

Instead of fearing failure, we should learn

that failures, mistakes and errors are the

way we learn and the way we grow. Many

of the world’s greatest successes have

learned how to fail their way to success.

Some of the more famous are:

Charles Darwin

Darwin was chastised by his father for

being lazy and too dreamy. He once wrote

Famous Failures

By Michael Michalko • www.creativethinking,net

that his father and teachers considered

him rather below the common standard

of intellect. When Charles Darwin first

presented his research on evolution,

it was met with little enthusiasm. He

continued to work on his theory of

evolution when all of his colleagues

called him a fool and what he was doing

“a fool’s experiment.”

Steven Spielberg

While today Spielberg’s name is

synonymous with big budget, he was

rejected from the University of Southern

California School of Theater, Film and

Television three times. He eventually

attended school at another location, only

to drop out to become a director before

finishing. Thirty-five years after starting

his degree, Spielberg returned to school

in 2002 to finally complete his work and

earn his BA.

Michaelangelo

The artist genius of the ages is

Michelangelo. His competitor’s

once tried to set him up for

failure or force him to forgo

a commission because of the

possibility of failure. Michelangelo’s

competitors persuaded Junius II to assign

to him a relatively obscure and difficult

project. It was to fresco the ceiling of a

private chapel. The chapel had already

been copiously decorated with frescoes

by many talented artists. Michelangelo

would be commissioned to decorate

the tunnel-vaulted ceiling. In this way,

his rivals thought they would divert his

energies from sculpture, in which they

realized he was supreme. This, they

argued, would make things hopeless

for him, since he had no experience

in fresco, he would certainly, they

believed, do amateurish work

as a painter. Without doubt,

they thought, he would be

compared unfavorably with

Raphael, and even if the work

were a success, being forced to

do it would make him angry

with the Pope, and thus one

way or another they would

succeed in their purpose of

getting rid of him.

Michelangelo, protesting that

painting was not his art, still took

on the project. In every way it was

a challenging task. He had never used

color, nor had he painted in fresco. He

executed the frescos in great discomfort,

having to work with his face looking

upwards, which impaired his sight so

badly that he could not read or look

at drawings save with his head turned

backwards, and this lasted for several

months. In that awkward curved space,

Michelangelo managed to depict the

history of the Earth from the Creation

to Noah, surrounded by ancestors and

prophets of Jesus and finally revealing

the liberation of the soul. His enemies

had stage managed the masterpiece

that quickly established him as the artist

genius of the age.

Fred Astaire

In his first screen test, the testing

director of MGM noted that Astaire

“Can’t act. Can’t sing. Slightly

bald. Not handsome. Can

dance a little.” Astaire went

on to become an incredibly

successful actor, singer and

dancer and kept that note in

his Beverly Hills home to remind

him of where he came from.

Michael Michalko is the author of the

highly-acclaimed Thinkertoys: A Handbook

of Creative Thinking Techniques. www.

From

Dear Daytripping,

Our Readers

Our Sundays are frequently spent driving to the many small-town,

quaint towns of southwestern Ontario: Goderich, Stratford, Bayfield,

Chatham to name a few! This time of year especially, we are in awe of

the beautiful sea of fields of the farmers' pride and joy in their crops!

Recently, we had a beautiful day to drive out to the town of

Aylmer, Ontario from our home city of Sarnia, Ontario. Aylmer sits

just on the outskirts of St. Thomas (another charming city).

Pinecroft is where we stopped in at Aylmer. Pinecroft is nestled in

an oasis of tall trees and so many other species of Mother Nature's

glory! There, we were able to enjoy our lunch outdoors in a tranquil

setting with the many sights and sounds of the fantastic natural

view

of its pond and interesting

surroundings. After a

super-great lunch, we strolled

the wandering grounds to

further enjoy Pinecroft.

This is a wonderful area

and Pinecroft is a "must see"!

Can't wait for another

Sunday drive within our

wonderful south-western

Ontario!

Sincerely,

Lidia De Carolis,

Sarnia

For the Love

of Fresh Pasta

During the early months of the Covid

19 pandemic, my father in law and I

enjoyed the sun and sounds of children

playing in our backyard. During one of

our afternoon tea dates, my father in

law, Ritchie, mentioned a project he and

his father had started back in 1945 when

he was 10 years old. It was a 6 foot long

rowboat to act as a tender to his family’s

boat, the “Black Duck.” They used the

boat each summer to get to their cabin on

Georgian Bay. Kenneth, Ritchie’s father,

felt they would benefit from having a

smaller boat to act as a tender, so he

purchased a pattern from a boat building

catalogue and enlisted the help of his son

to build it. The duo took the project as far

as cutting out the pieces and creating the

frame before Kenneth’s youngest child fell

ill and the project was put on hold.

Kenneth took the project to his home in

Toronto, but despite his desires, he never

got around to finishing the project. As an

adult, Ritchie took the pieces with the

hope to someday finish the project with

his son Gregory. The pieces moved several

times across Southwestern Ontario before

they settled in Wyoming, Ontario with

Kenneth, his son Gregory and his young

family.

When Ritchie told me the story I knew

this was something that needed to be

completed. Ritchie was now 84 years old,

Puddle Duck

By Tammy With

so I asked if I could lead this project to

completion. He was delighted to hear of

my interest and encouraged me to enlist

my husband and four young children as

helpers in the project.

That afternoon I had my husband

retrieve the pieces from our garage attic

and the next afternoon the seven of us

took to the back yard to make Kenneth’s

vision come to life.

As we worked our way through the

pattern we realized that we were missing

several pieces of the frame as well as all of

the written directions needed to complete

the build. All we had was a couple of

diagrams and the original catalogue to

guide us. We decided that rather than

scrap the project that we would use a

more modern method of boat building to

construct it, as building

another form was

something we found very

daunting. We settled on

using the stitch and glue

method.

For the first few days

my children enjoyed

working on the project,

but as happens with

children, they became

uninterested in the

project. From then

on I chose to work on

the project each day when my younger

children were having their afternoon

nap. It was a slow process, but steadily

throughout the summer, I managed to put

the boat together.

Once the plywood was stitched

together, I enlisted the help of my father, a

professional fiberglasser to teach me how

to fiberglass the outside of the boat. My

father and I spent two weekends adding

layers of fiberglass and sanding the boat.

Working on this project with my father is

something that I will remember as one

of the most special moments he and I

have spent together. Once the sanding

was complete I painted the boat bright

yellow, added white gunnels with oar

locks and painted the interior white. All

that remained was the addition of a name

on the stern. Kenneth had named the

boat “Puddle Duck” when he started the

project, a name that suited her perfectly

with her bright yellow paint.

After 74 years and several trips on land,

Puddle Duck took her first voyage afloat

at the end of the summer. We gathered as

a family at A.W. Campbell Conservation

Area in Alvinston to watch her maiden

voyage. Richie said a few words in honour

of his father and christened Puddle Duck

with a splash of sparkling cider. My

husband and our son Sawyer were the

first to take a ride around the pond. I could

see the sheer delight in Ritchie’s face as

he watched his son paddle along.

I like to think Kenneth was looking

down on us that day as we paddled

along. He would have loved to see the joy

we all took in the tiny little boat he had

started as a young father. Puddle Duck

will be passed along to our children when

they become parents in the hope of her

becoming a family heirloom.

The summer of isolation was hard,

but having a project like this made it a

little more manageable. Had we not been

in lockdown, I likely would have found

distraction in other things, and maybe

Puddle Duck would have spent another

generation in pieces. It was a great

honour to be part of such an important

family legacy.

Children Trade Holiday Visits

Summer has come and gone, but in its

passing my children will have memories

to cherish of the pleasures they shared

with their farm cousins. Likewise, I hope

that Johnny, a 10-year-old farm boy who

spent two weeks visiting our home will

remember his activity-packed city visit

with the same bubbling enthusiasm he

displayed during his stay.

Between his mother, the Country

Aunt, and myself, the City Aunt, we

trade our children back and forth during

the brief sunny eight weeks with a

minimum of bother. We both feel that

parents and children benefit from a

change in scene.

When Johnny came to stay with us,

he participated in events that would not

be available to him on the farm.

For instance, Johnny learned to

swim at the huge outdoor swimming

pool a few blocks from our house. He

played scrub baseball on the school

lot. The recreation program at the

city playground in our neighbourhood

introduced him to athletic achievement

tests such as the dash, broad jump and

high jump.

The supervisor’s craft sessions were a

highlight to his visit. One afternoon he

came home beaming.

He was holding a

bright blue birdhouse

which he had designed

and made. It was

judged the best in his

age group. Saturday

afternoon Johnny and

son, Michael, went to

a movie matinee, and

A Mystical, Magical Gift Store ~ Come Visit Us My Pretties

All Natural, Handcrafted

Skincare, Candles & Teas

By Estelle Salata, Dundas • www.estellesalata.ca

Sunday morning Johnny was a guest at

Michael’s Sunday School. A picnic in the

park rounded out the visitor’s perfect

week. Summer picnics are a rarity on

the farm, with Johnny’s hard-working

parents too busy with harvesting.

Mischief was cut to a minimum as the

two boys explored their two wonderful

worlds together. Michael enjoys the

farm equally. He is allowed to ride his

bicycle on the car-free country wagon

tracks, something not permitted at

home because of heavy traffic.

Then, there is the inevitable

attraction of performing daring stunts

with aerialist aplomb in the loft of the

barn. The boys search for frogs in the

still ponds, and Michael’s awareness of

the wonder of feeding the small calves

in the hush of morning give him new

insight into the ways of nature.

I found myself wishing other

youngsters were given the same

opportunity of exploring a different

world. As a rule, city dwellers are

only too eager to visit on a farm, and

permitting their children to spend a

holiday with farm relatives or friends.

But often it simply does not occur to

them that a farm boy or girl would

be just as thrilled to

spend a vacation with

them in the city.

Why

not

experiment with

your own exchange

program? You will be

glad you initiated the

plan for the children’s

summer pleasure.

The trains of THE PORT STANLEY

TERMINAL RAIL travel over the tracks

and roadbed of one of

Ontario’s oldest railways,

The London and Port

Stanley Railway, which

was designed to alleviate

congestion on a plank

road that had been built

to connect Port Stanley

and London. Entirely

constructed by hand

labour, the railway project

was begun in 1853 shortly after the

Great Western Railway reached London.

The first train to reach Port Stanley was

a passenger train on July 5th 1856.

During the next 59 years, thousands

of steam trains traveled the 23 mile

route, carrying passengers and freight

to and from the bustling city of London

and the thriving port at Port Stanley.

In 1913 the City of London, which

owned the line, chose to assume its

operation. Adam Beck, the influential

promoter of Hydro Electric power from

Niagara Falls and mayor of London at the

time, rebuilt the line into a modern highspeed

electric operation. Smoke free

electric trains enticed excursionists to

travel to Port Stanley, where passengers

could enjoy the L&PS amusement park,

swim in a rented bathing suit from the

L&PS bath house, dine in the L&PS

cafeteria, or dance under the stars at the

L&PS Pavilion. The Pavilion, later known

as the Stork Club, was renowned for top

name entertainment with the likes of

Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman and

London’s own Guy Lombardo frequently

heading the list of performers.

Passenger traffic plummeted

following the Second World War after

reaching a peak of 1.1 million in 1943.

The end of gas rationing and more

use of the automobile caused the end

of passenger service on February 1st

1957. From 1915 to this time, over 28

million people had ridden the L&PS. The

Railway and its remaining freight traffic

were traded in 1966 to the Canadian

National Railways, for the CNR car

repair shops property at York & Rectory

streets in London.

While the London-St. Thomas section

of the line remained as a busy freight

corridor, the neglected section of the

L&PS from St. Thomas to Port Stanley

was abandoned in 1982 after a washout

at Union. It was then that a group of

London & St. Thomas residents formed

the Port Stanley Terminal Rail Inc. to

purchase the line and rebuild it into an

operating railway. The line’s potential

as a tourist railroad was obvious. Port

Stanley had a large beach and the

quaint charm of a lakeside village,

geographically located

between the Detroit

and Toronto and just

20 minutes from the

Hwy. #401. The line

also had a scenic quality

with a long history

remembered by many.

Apples-On-A-Stick with this recipe!

By Ruth

Sharon

Candy Apples

on-a-stick

Select firm, red apples. Wash & polish. For the sticks, use wooden

meat skewers or popsicle sticks. This recipe is easily doubled.

8 medium-size red apples

2 cups sugar

2/3 cup light corn syrup

1 cup water

1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Red food colouring

Grease cookie sheet lightly. Remove stems from apples. Insert wooden

sticks firmly in stem end. Stir sugar, syrup and water together in saucepan

over moderate heat until sugar almost dissolves. Cover pan; bring slowly

to boil. Remove cover; boil rapidly without stirring until 1 tsp. of syrup

dropped into cold water separates into hard, brittle threads, or to 300

degrees on candy thermometer.

During cooking, wipe inside of pan often with wet cheesecloth wrapped

around a fork. At 300 degrees add cinnamon and enough colouring to

tint syrup bright red. Tip saucepan. Dip apples, twisting in syrup until

covered. Also extra syrup on apples to drain back into pan. Work quickly,

placing saucepan over boiling water, if

necessary to keep syrup thin enough to

coat apples easily. Save any excess syrup

to help stick decorations (small candies

and cutouts of fruits) on apples. Place

coated apples, stick up, on prepared

cookie sheet to harden.

Makes 8 apples-on-a-stick; approx.

195 cals. and 7g. fat per candy apple.

TOWN NAME, TOWN NAME and another awesome TOWN NAME

A University of Western

Ontario study showed that if

each Ontario family shifted

only $10 of their weekly

food budget to buy food

produced in the province,

Ontario businesses

would see 10,000 new

jobs and $2.4 billion in

annual food sales.

Cont’d from page 41

In the early days,

the first task of the

volunteers was finding

the track. No trains had

traveled to Port Stanley

for over seven years.

Trees, weeds and mud

buried the right of way,

and road crossings were

paved over. The formidable task of

reopening the line began with all the

legal hurdles to be overcome adding to

the problems. These people would not

give up and the first train rides ran in

1983. By 1985 the railway’s volunteers

had rebuilt the washout at Union for

a fraction of the cost estimated by

CNR. It was then possible to open the

remaining section of the line. However,

many more hurdles had to be overcome

before this could be done. It would take

two more years before the PSTR would

receive a Provincial railway charter, the

first Ontario Railway Act since 1927.

In 1988 the PSTR purchased the entire

seven miles of property from St. Thomas

Parkside to Port Stanley. Two more

years of work, meetings and hearings

remained before the PSTR would be

allowed to operate over the entire line.

Several operating restrictions lasted until

the passing of the Ontario Shortline

Railways Act in December of 1995.

Starting in January of 1996 the PSTR

could drop the practice of having to stop

at each road crossing and flagging the

train across. Also changed at this time

were the restricted hours of operation.

PSTR could now operate after sunset.

There have been many changes over

the years, both on and off the property.

Although the PSTR is a company owned

by shareholders, the contributions of the

volunteers must not be underestimated.

Without the knowledge and work of

these people the trains would not

run. All revenue generated from ticket

sales has been used to pay taxes and

insurance, repair track, purchase and

upgrade equipment. Other costs include

fuel, advertising, telephone, student

wages and benefits, etc.

The two stations, Port Stanley and

Union, which were in derelict condition

when the line was taken over have been

improved at no little time and

expense. The Port Stanley Station now

has central air conditioning for the

customers and staff’s comfort. Station

agents are often part time summer

students and souvenir sales help

maintain these historic buildings.

Except for the busy summer months

trains are operated by volunteer crews

who must undergo testing and pass rules

tests developed by PSTR based on the

Federal Railway operating codes. Over

the years many people have volunteered

their help in running the trains. PSTR is

always on the lookout for new volunteers

to help run the trains and perform other

work. The experience can be a rewarding

In its years of operation, PSTR has

carried thousands of passengers on the

many trains safely. Over 400 departures

take place each season carrying

approximately 25,000 riders for the

year. Many special charters also take

place year round. The heaviest time is

during June when many school trips

come for a train ride. More recently the

special “Entertainment Train” has been

placed in service. Licensed by LLBO,

this train is available for special parties

almost any time.

PSTR equipment has been upgraded

and improved over the years. Most of

the passenger equipment are converted

cabooses, which have been rebuilt

into special and unique open and

closed cars suitable for use in all

seasons. The “Little Red Caboose”

is a former CN flat top caboose

that has been improved to

accommodate children’s birthday

parties on the train. PSTR has

over 30 pieces of rolling stock

on the property and the work of

conversion upgrades is continuing.

Our unique Stoneware Pottery made on site since 1948.

Did you ever wonder at the oddities

in place names on maps? Some are so

strange that one wonders at what the

explorer/geographist was thinking at the

time. Nowhere is this state more evident

than on a map of Newfoundland.

Certainly the island is one of the best

sources of unusual monikers in Canada

and these invite all kinds of speculation

as to why, how, when the naming took

place. The following were plucked

from a Rand/McNally atlas at random.

Random, as a matter of fact, is an actual

place on the rock. It was picked at (you

guessed it) random as the first example.

There is no shortage of colourful

names but some are better than others

and can lead one to wild speculation

as to reasons why this name was not

only chosen but fought to retain its

quaintness over the decades.

Joe Batt’s Arm is a small dot on the

map. The name clearly is connected

to human anatomy, but why? Does the

area have biceps, bony elbows, a wrist?

Did an early explorer suddenly realize

that the area resembled the arm of a

deadly enemy, a close friend or even a

relative? It is flattering to Joe that he is

immortalized and is on every map of

Canada? How much recognition does

one man deserve? Joe Batt, your name

and arm will live forever.

Names

By Glynn Leyshon, London

Further perusal of the map reveals

Conception Bay. One can only speculate

as to what was happening in the area

when some early mapper strolled from

the forest to see the panorama laid out

before him. (It as extremely rare for a

woman to have an input into geographic

naming but this is one of the few.) It is

apropos that close by is a hamlet called

Placentia. I don’t think this juxtaposition

was accidental.

Some of the Newfie names just

sound, well, Newfie. Parson’s Pond

being a good example. The name has

alliteration as well as mystery (why did

the Parson have a pond named after

him?) As well, there is a Funk Island, a

place called Fogo and a harbour labelled

Hooping (could there have been a

basketball team there?) Colourful and

memorable, too.

A town called Mosquito would hardly

attract too many tourists and is a tribute

to the towns people that they have

not changed the name, spraying and

scratching as they must.

Proud of their heritage and praying

for cold weather all the time jealous

perhaps of the folks in Heart’s Content

just a few windy, bugless miles away

where the folk from Mosquito go to

escape.

One also wonders about events

that might have inspired the names.

Witless Bay invites a guess as does Push

Through. Are they related? Perhaps an

explorer was fighting his way through

thick brush and decided not to quit but

to push through until he could see the

ocean and thereupon decided it was

not worth the effort and was a witless

venture.

He might have seen Mouse Island and

decided it wasn’t worth his time and he

would not have stopped at all except his

shoes were too tight in Shoe Cove and

they were pinching (Nipper’s Bay).

Have you

ever thought

that you would

like a jar of homemade

strawberry jam, but it was later in

the summer and you missed strawberry

season? Or maybe it was the middle of

winter and the weather channel was

forecasting 20 centimetres of snow.

I have come up with the solution to

your dilemma—home-made strawberry

jam using frozen strawberries. It was

several years ago when I was on

vacation and missed strawberry season

that I came up with this “recipe.” Since

my husband and I really wanted fresh

home-made strawberry jam, I thought

about trying store-bought frozen

strawberries.

I make my jam the old-fashioned

way—the way my grandmother made

it and the way my mother made it. The

only ingredients are fruit, sugar and a

splash of lemon juice. I’m not sure why

the lemon juice is important, but my

grandmother and my mother added

lemon juice to their home-made jams…

if it was good for Grandma and Mom,

then it’s good enough for me.

Jammin’ Out of Season

Helpful Hints

If you are not sure of the hour-and-ahalf

time, an easy way to check if jam is

ready is to take the pot off the stove, put

a spoonful onto a saucer and freeze for 5

minutes. After 5 minutes, run your finger

through the jam and if it stays put, jam

should be ready. If you need another few

minutes, put the pot back on the stove

and cook for 5 minutes. Repeat until jam

is the right consistency.

If the jam is too thin, you can always

recook for a few minutes, but another

good thing is to use it as ice cream

topping.

If the jam is too thick put a spoonful

each in tart shells and bake for 10 to

12 minutes or until pastry is nice and

brown. You could also put some in the

middle of muffin batter. Using your

favourite muffin recipe, fill the muffin

cup half full with batter, drop a spoonful

of jam on top, then top with more muffin

batter and bake. These muffins rival any

sold in a donut shop.

A hazard of this jam is, my husband

won’t eat store-bought strawberry jam

anymore!

Enjoy.

Jam Recipe

Ingredients

• 2 600-gram bags of frozen

fruit thawed (I have used

strawberries, blackberries,

raspberries and multi-berry)

• 3 cups sugar

• Splash of lemon juice

Directions

• In a large pot (I use my

spaghetti pot), crush the

thawed fruit, add sugar and

lemon juice and bring to a boil.

Let the mixture boil until it

cannot be stirred down.

• Lower the heat to just above a

simmer and stir occasionally.

• Cook for 1-½ hours.

• Ladle into clean jars, let cool

and then freeze.

• When you want a jar of jam,

bring out of freezer and let it

thaw in the fridge.

• This recipe makes

approximately 4-5 250 ml jars.

Story and photos by Randy Goudeseune, Delhi

I‘ve been in Waterford Antique

Market a few times recently in the past

two years, and liked the changes I’ve

seen there. I used to be a vendor in this

same market back about 20 years ago

when it first opened. To my surprise,

when I walked in I saw my still “young

friend Sandy” there working and

helping customers as she has done for

the past 18-20 years.

The new owners of the market,

Anna Wilson, a very lovely young lady

along with her mother Shelley Stanley

operate this multi-vendor antique

market. I was quite impressed with

Anna and her business sense.

Anna and Shelley have put their

own mark on this long-running market

and it looks a little fresher and more

inviting for antique hunters these

days. There is a LOT to shop for in this

75-dealer market within this two-story

building, with 16,000 square feet of

antiques and collectibles to keep you

occupied for a few hours.

Waterford Antique Market has

something for everyone: country farm

house chic to gas memorabilia to small

collectibles of china and glass. It also

has vintage jewellery, antique toys,

and even hockey cards—something

for everyone in your family.

The building is large and well lit,

from it’s large factory windows and

high ceilings.

This building was once The Penman

Mill No.12 from 1917 and ran for many

years producing textiles for Canada

and abroad.

Also part of Waterford Market is

the Fishin’ Musician and it has a

wonderful assortment of vintage

guitars, and other very interesting

musical instruments and vintage amps

for sale. See, I told you this place has

something for everyone in your family

to pique their interests.

So get out your Daytripping paper,

open the map in the centre and plan

a trip to the lovely town of Waterford.

Publisher’s note: Waterford looks

great these days, with a number of new

shops opening recently. And as someone

who plays various instruments, The

Fishin’ Musician really is a unique shop

to explore.

“The Talking Dog”

A guy is driving around Tennessee and he sees a sign in front of a

house: "Talking Dog For Sale." He rings the bell and the owner tells

him the dog is in the backyard. The guy goes into the backyard

and sees a Golden Retriever sitting there. "You talk?" he asks.

"Yep," the dog replies. "So, what's your story?"

The Retriever looks up and says, "Well, I discovered that I could

talk when I was pretty young. I wanted to help the government,

so I told the CIA about my gift, and in no time they had me jetting

around, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no

one figured a dog would be eavesdropping. I was one of their

most valuable spies for eight years. But the jetting around really

tired me out, and I decided to settle down. I signed up for a job at

the airport to do some undercover security wandering near

suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some

incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals. I got

married, had a mess of puppies, and now I'm just retired."

The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner

what he wants for the dog. Ten dollars," the guy says.

"Ten dollars? This dog is amazing. Why on earth are you selling

him so cheap?" "Because he's a liar. He never did any of that stuff."

For Drying Times Such As These

There are many methods of

preserving foods such as refrigeration,

freezing, canning, pickling, fermenting,

salting—and dehydrating.

Dehydrating is probably one of the

easiest processes to preserve food.

There is a wealth of information on the

internet and Youtube and I encourage

you to check out the different sites to

make yourself acquainted with this

ancient art.

There are so many advantages to

dehydrating foods.

First of all, they can save you a

ton of money if you grow your own

food or buy when things are on sale.

Have you checked out the prices of

dried blueberries and cherries lately?

Outrageous. An over abundance in your

garden will never go to waste if you

preserve your bounty this way.

Dehydrating ensures you have a

variety of nutritious foods on hand at all

times. No more doing without because

the weather prevents you from getting

to the grocery store, or a job loss limits

your buying power. You will have these

items in your well-stocked pantry.

It is so convenient. After the simple

By Janet Robinson, Burlington

process of drying is complete, you just

place the dried items in clean canning

jars, take as much as you need when you

need it, and then re-seal the jars and put

the remainder back on the shelf.

Dried foods retain virtually all of their

nutritional qualities because they are

not cooked, they only have the moisture

removed.

You can dehydrate almost anything

including fruits, vegetables, pre-cooked

rice and pasta (to save time as you only

then need to add liquid and re-heat), and

even meats. You can even dehydrate

canned items such as pineapple. Store

the dried products in a cool, dark place

and they will last for literally years. They

are light weight and safe during power

outages.

If you appreciate convenience,

this is for you. You can just throw a

handful of dried herbs or veggies or

mushrooms into a soup or stew or

spaghetti sauce, or re-hydrate them

and add them to scrambled eggs or

casseroles. They can even be used

as a side dish in a meal. Reconstitute

the dried fruits and add them to apple

crisps or baked goods.

Some people even grind the dried

items into powders. This can be done

with tomatoes, garlic, onions, green

leafy vegetables, blueberries, etc. You

can add these luscious powders to a

variety of dishes including smoothies.

Dried herbs such as oregano,

echinacea, feverfew, etc. can be used

to make medicinal tinctures and

extracts. These have long been the go-to

remedies for a variety of health issues

and are making a resurgence as more

and more people want to avoid the

drugs that ‘big pharma’ promotes and

all the chemicals that are in them.

To get started, you can purchase

a food dehydrator or you can dry

your foods in your oven or even out

in the sun. If you use your oven, set

everything on a parchment paper lined

baking sheet and set the oven at the

lowest temperature. (If your oven’s

lowest temperature exceeds 125 F, just

leave the door ajar so you have about

a six inch opening.) This ensures the

food does not cook. Keep checking and

moving things around for even heat

distribution.

You can dehydrate at any time of the

year, but now that we are in the harvest

season, it is a great time to start putting

up nutritious foods to enjoy all winter

and also throughout the years to come.
