Har Nature’s Harvest

MEDICINE HAT INTERPRETIVE CENTRE This time of year the nights are cooler, the leaves are changing and for many of us its harvest time. Farmers have begun harvesting their crops and preparing their field for the next growing season, storing seeds to be sown the following year. In our own gardens we can also harvest seeds, but some of us simply purchase new seeds each year for our annual plants. This time of year, nature can be exceptionally interesting as the wild plants are also preparing themselves for the next growing season. Different plants disperse their seeds in varying ways, each having unique adaptations to assist in their transport. When the seeds come to rest, they enter into a time of dormancy or “storing themselves” for the winter, protecting themselves until spring brings ideal growing conditions. Some plants use wind to disperse their seeds varying distances and transportation occurs in more ways than one. Do you remember being a small child and blowing on that perfect fluffy dandelion to watch the tiny little white umbrellas float away in the wind? Many plants similar to the dandelion have seeds with small tufts of fine hairs that capture the wind, giving the seeds a free ride for many metres. Another way plants use wind to travel is through a unique seed adaptation that gives the seed tiny wings.

These seeds ride the wind like odd looking butterflies fluttering to the ground. Seeds that grow in capsules like some members of the geranium or legume family, literally explode with such force, they are able to travel several feet from their parent plant. Many plants in our native prairie rely on the help of humans and animals to disperse their seeds. Those plants producing berries and other tasty fruit, depend on the digestive track and roaming habit of animals, to disperse their seeds with an extra added bonus of natural fertilizer. Some seeds have adapted tiny little hooks and burs or rather “nature’s velcro” for easy attachment to fur and clothing. This can be exceptionally annoying and even painful for your pup. But the next time you walk through a field and have to pull spear grass or burs from your socks or sweater, give yourself a pat on the back, you have just assisted in natures harvest.

HECKS GRASSFINCH P. 4

They are very fond of, broccoli, spinach, lettuce, carrot tops, dandelions, chickweed. They should be on a very high end quality finch mix, with egg food, and spray millets as their treats. Vitamin and mineral supplements should be provided daily. This little finch is a excellent addition to any aviary as it gets along with most finch. In breeding season, it may fight with other males, but in general is a peaceful bird. The Heck’s Grass finch is very rarely available in pet shops, I have seen it only once in a shop. It is available through breeders on line, with the price varying from $50.00 a bird to around $200.00 for the rare cream and white mutations. The yellow beak type is never available in Western Canada, the red beak being the most popular! The Basic color is a silver grey head , with a rose brown body, and a pure black bib, with a red beak. There are fawn, cream, and white mutations which are very rare. They have related subspecies in the “Parson’s finch” which has a Black beak and smaller body, and also the Masked finch which is brown with a yellow beak, it is said they can mate with each other and produce hybrids. Therefore it is not advised to house them together. The pair bond on Heck’s grass finch is very strong, and sometimes when one mate dies the other will pine away and die soon after. They have the strongest pair bond of all finch.

For more info on the Heck’s Grass finch email me at gz1806@telus.net. Next Month: Blue & Gold Macaws

Bird Funnies

The Heck’s grass finch is a rather small finch from Australia, average size is 5 inches, with the males being slightly larger. The sexes are similarly colored so very hard to sex them, sometimes breeders have to resort to DNA testing to determine sex. Both male and female have a rather pleasant song. Long time breeders say males have a larger bib. In Australia the bird is very populous, with large numbers in most areas. Heck’s found in captivity are bred in large numbers also. They nest in boxes, and love to build their nests of grasses, fiber or any material they can incorporate in the box. In the wild they look for holes in trees, but have been known to build in dense bushes. They lay 4-7 eggs and incubate for 14 days. They are usually very good parents when not bothered. Young leave the nest in 21 days, and are fully fledged by 42 days. They are a very friendly bird, and can be finger trained, and can form a real strong bond with their owners. My wife has a little male that responds to her voice and will sit on her finger. They can be cheeky with predators, not flying until the last minute, which can result in their untimely death.

Q: Why do birds fly south in the winter? A: Because its too far to walk!

dr..phil Written by

Scott Cowen I have to admit, my old college counseling classes and the tiny amount of psychology I studied in school, provided just enough education for me to be dangerous. I went into the Dr. Phil encounter as biased as a liberal at a conservative convention. It was with this “Frasier mentality,” that I judged the man before ever meeting or talking with him. His cocky attitude and fast food counseling model was to me the apex of emotional suicide for his patients. I couldn’t have been more wrong…true he takes guests on his program and in less than an hour offers home spun wisdom and professional advice…but that is what it is, advice from a seasoned pro. The question has been asked, why do they call it common sense when it is so uncommon? We should be asking ourselves, why do we watch and listen to this man who dispenses information everyone should have at their own finger tips, and consider him such a celebrity. What does it say about society? He does not claim to psychologically analyze his guests. He fires answers like a verbal machine gun. Nor does he ask as your therapist might…”how do you feel or what do you think?” His famous line was repeated, “How is that working for you?” Nor is he against long term therapy in the proper setting. Considering the reality of the time he has on air, there is one hour less commercial time to make a TV program work. Those who know me will be choking on my earlier comment about the cocky attitude thing, knowing I am the king of naked self promotion. Who am I to pass judgment? My opinions are just that… opinions people are welcome to take or leave them. I never claim to be an expert on anything but my own world view. However a doctor of psychology has a legal moral obligation to his patients to provide the best of care! Dr. Phil was to me an example of one who took advantage of the vulnerable and easily manipulated. So I thought, until I met the man. Dr. Phil is one of the best speakers I ever heard. The audience of four thousand sat spell bound the entire two hours, and would have stayed for much more. His material was anything but superficial. There were moments when people laughed, cried, and wildly applauded! What really sold me was when he left the people in the main ball room, then went across the street to the audience watching by video to spend time in person with them. Selfishly, that is when I got my up close and personal time. He made many comments about the importance of family and how hard travelling was to keep domestic priorities in balance. He P. 8

spoke glowingly of Oprah. Telling the story how they met. He was the “hired expert,” attorneys brought in to testify when she was sued by the cattle men in Texas. Remember her negative beef comments? She naively imagined that telling the truth was the entire defense she needed. Dr. Phil explained to her, “Those good old boys are going to eat you alive.” From there they won the case and Oprah catapulted him into the national spotlight. He claims that if you come to his home you’ll probably get BBQ with lots of liquid smoke, since he fancies himself quite a chef. I think I would like that…good food, good company, and good advice… how could you go wrong?

crepes flambé. Just like that little black dress, it’s time to accessorize for the evening. Roast beef chopped with scallions, wine, and fresh herbs, rolled in a crepe, topped with a lovely horseradish garlic cream sauce, takes that simple crepe to the next level. Scallops, shrimp and crab, oh my, now we are talking, add a nice bottle of wine and a little candle light, and you have a wonderful dinner, with very little work.

Having the neighbors over, add some nice cheese, green onion to those eggs, top with hollandaise. Everyone will think they are enjoying brunch in a French Bistro. How nice is that.

or those of us over 25, when you think of Halloween, one of the treats you think of is candy corn, those sugary little spikes of Halloween cheer. They’ve been around for as long as I remember and even as long as my grandparent’s remember. Who the first person to make these tasty treats was is unknown but the Wunderle Candy Company of Philadelphia was the first to go into commercial production. Founder Gustav Goelitz, a German immigrant, began commercial production of the treat in 1898 in Cincinnati and is today the oldest manufacturer of the Halloween icon. It’s tricolor design was considered revolutionary for it’s time and people flocked to buy them. Their shape was also a big selling point for the mostly agrarian population of the early 1900’s. So popular was the candy corn that companies tried other vegetable shapes including turnips. The Goelitz Candy company even had to turn orders down for lack of production capacity.

time. They were packed in wooden buckets, tubs and cartons to be delivered by wagon and train over relatively short distances. Perishability prevented widespread distribution. During World War II, Herman Goelitz, son of Gustav, moved to Fairfield, California to start his own company, the Herman Goelitz Candy Company. Their product? Candy corn! The fortune of the Halloween treat would rise and fall many times as recession and boom, war and peace, affected the humble confection. Throughout the hard times it was the sale of candy corn that kept the companies afloat. In the sugar crisis of the mid 1970s when the price of raw sugar skyrocketed, the company had to borrow heavily to buy sugar to keep production up. After the crisis, the market plummeted. Many companies went out of the business. It was the demand for the candy corn that kept Goelitz from bankruptcy. According to the National Confectioner’s Association, in 2001 candy manufacturers sold more than 20 million pounds of candy corn. Roughly 8.3 billion kernels, very impressive for a product that has remained virtually unchanged for well over 100 years.

Candy corn was originally sold in bulk containers like most food products of the

The Medicine Hat Champion’s Centre is a non-profit Christian Charity that is dedicated to providing long term supportive housing to men who face barriers to independent living. Most of these men have mental or physical illness and are usually living in very sub-standard housing or are often homeless. This is due to their very limited incomes or in some cases no income at all. Not only are they living in terrible conditions, they are not eating properly or receiving medical care for their illnesses. When most of us Canadians think of people in need, third world countries or disasters such as earth quakes or hurricanes usually come to mind. Not too often do we consider the fact we also face real disasters of our own, right here in our cities, towns and own neighborhoods. Most homeless men have been marginalized and stigmatised by society as lazy and unwilling to work or are homeless by choice. This is certainly not the case in most situations! Our experience has shown that nearly without exception most homeless people are on the street due to mental or physical illness that they have no control over. These men are living on the streets simply because they don’t have the monetary means or supports they require. Most of these men were once contributing members of society and had hopes and dreams like everyone else. The one thing they didn’t plan on was becoming ill.

P. 12

The Champions Centre values these men as we do all human beings. We offer a caring supportive home that ensures all of their needs are met. Most of all we give them hope for a brighter future. A future where they receive the medical and mental health treatment they need and a warm caring environment that offers them hope for a better tomorrow. We realize they are someone’s sons, brothers or fathers and if circumstances were different could quite possibly be our own. Our operating capital comes from the monthly rent that is charged to our tenants and although we are extremely cost effective in our business practices, we still need the support of others. The Medicine Hat Centre also provides a free breakfast for approximately 15-20 low to no income people every Monday to Friday mornings. We provide a free hot lunch to approximately 30 to 60 people every Saturday. A Sunday meal is provided also, but it is served from the St. Barnabas church. The weekend meals are all served by volunteers. We acknowledge that none of the work the Champion’s Centre does is possible without the financial support of our local business partners. With these things in mind we are asking for your partnership in financially supporting the work of the Champion’s Centre here in Medicine Hat. Your partnership with us would mean a lot to these men that have so little.

The Inspiring Pumpkin... A lady had recently been baptized. One of her co-workers asked her what it was like to be a Christian. She was caught off guard and didn’t know how to answer; but when she looked up, saw a jack-o’-lantern on the desk and answered: “It’s like being a pumpkin.” The coworker asked her to explain that one. “Well, God picks you from the patch and brings you in and washes off all the dirt on the outside that you got from being around all the other pumpkins. Then he cuts off the top and takes all the yucky stuff out from inside. He removes all those seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc. Then he carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all to see. “It is our choice to either stay outside and rot on the vine or come inside and be something new and bright.” P. 16
