How much do you know about how our culture has evolved throughout the ages? This week, Tidbits explores the progress made over the centuries. • Archaeologists generally divide prehistoric eras into three ages – the Stone Age, the Bronze Age, and the Iron Age – named such for the material used for making implements and weapons. During the Stone Age, stone was fashioned with a sharp edge or a point, with the oldest known stone tools excavated from several sites in what is now Ethiopia. The Stone Age is divided into three sub-eras, the Paleolithic era (early), roughly 70,000 to 20,000 B.C., the Mesolithic era (middle), 20,000 to 7000 B.C., and the Neolithic era (new), 7000 to 3000 B.C. The period of the Bronze Age is considered to be from 3000 to 1200 B.C., and ushered in the use of copper and tin with the alloy bronze in the manufacture of tools and weapons. The Iron Age occurred between 1200 and 600 B.C., when the harder and tougher iron replaced bronze. Cultural changes accompanied the difference in metal, as newer agricultural practices, religious beliefs, and artistic styles evolved. Decorative designs on ornaments and pottery became prevalent. Blacksmiths were hammering items into shape, advancing away from the Bronze Age’s method of casting. Turn the page for more!

Horoscope

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Make friends with yourself and you will never feel alone. You may be your own worst critic. In the week to come, work at being the very best you can be and concentrate on what is good about yourself. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Handle money with businesslike precision and remain formal in social situations. You will receive better acceptance from others in the week ahead if your actions are above reproach. Display professionalism. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Be a friend indeed. Feeling gratitude but not expressing it is like buying a present and wrapping it, but not giving it. Give credit where credit is due in the week ahead - even if you think someone has ulterior motives. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Live long and prosper. Some money must come and go, but some money can be used as seed for a future harvest. Don’t make permanent decisions based on temporary feelings in the upcoming week. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Consider making headway with your health in the week ahead. Dump the junk foods and begin eating more nourishing fruits and vegetables. You only have one body and must find ways to make it last. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Sometimes it pays to mix business and pleasure. If you develop a strong sense of compassion and sharp wits, you won’t fall for cheap tricks in the week ahead. Romantic and business ties can grow stronger. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The notion that opposites attract is a fallacy unless you are discussing magnets. In the week to come, it’s best to seek companionship from those who are like you in their tastes, opinions and lifestyles. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Distance yourself from problems. Develop a more objective perspective in the week ahead by finding other activities to occupy your time. Seek relief from pressure so you can improve your attitude. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In fairy tales, fantasies can come true. Bottle up woeful wisdoms. You might be right, but you don’t need to spread doom and gloom this week when someone else is delighted with new plans and ideas. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Break out of a rut and make a brave stand. The time may be ripe to apologize to someone for not listening to wise advice sooner. In the week ahead, read inspiring literature and think about long-term results. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Look and listen for lasting values. In the upcoming week, someone behind the scenes may give you the opportunity to lead - but if you fail to perform, they’ll take control back in their own hands. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Life doesn’t come with an instruction manual. Sometimes you must ask others for help and assistance. This is a week when you must feel your way around, think things through and rely upon intuition.

Filling Empty Nets for Needy Pets MJ Humane Society once again teams up with the MJ Warriors for game night to benefit the shelter

Moose Jaw Glass

The Moose Jaw Humane Society has enjoyed a positive relationship with the Warriors over the years, and is excited to once again partner with the club for the “Filling Empty Nets For Needy Pets” campaign. Events like this one really help to broaden the exposure for the shelter and its animals in the community of Moose Jaw. The humane society is most grateful for the opportunity to connect with a larger base of Moose Javians, as well as for the donations for the dogs and cats in its care. On behalf of those pets who cannot speak for themselves, the shelter wishes to extend a sincere thank you to the Warriors players, staff, and fans for their ongoing dedication to the dogs and cats in need in our city.

The community of Moose Jaw has a lot of goodwill, and is always looking for ways to help out those in need. At this special Warriors game, the Moose Jaw Humane Society is asking people if they would consider donating in a way that they can better manage at their limited facility. This approach allows the Humane Society to use all donations in the best possible way for the animals in their care. Last year, more than $1400 was raised over the course of the game night! Treats and toys for the many dogs and cats in the humane society’s care are most welcome as donations; in addition to keeping the pets pleased and happy, the rigorous cleaning and disinfection of shelter supplies means that toys especially are literally “put through the wringer” on a regular basis and constantly in need of replacement. As well, canned cat and dog food is almost always in demand, and although the majority of the food fed to the animals is dry kibble food, a few spoonfuls of moist food is added at each feeding. In addition to being a nice little treat for the animals, the wet food also helps to increase palpability of the food and encourages the dogs and cats to eat their entire meals. To be specific, the shelter’s preferred type of canned dog food is the stew/meat in gravy variety; the kennel staff mixes this in with the dogs’ regular dry food at breakfast and supper. As well as extra flavour for the canine’s palate, the gravy and meat chunks are easier to mix with the dry food. With regards to canned cat food, both the shredded meat and paté varieties are greatly needed. Each cat receives a spoonful of moist food each morning with their breakfast as a little treat. The paté –style food is also great for young kittens learning to eat solid foods, as it is more manageable for little mouths, and it can be easily mixed with kitten formula to aid in the transition. Aside from the issue of lack of secure storage space, the shelter also battles a rodent problem, as ironic as that seems in a shelter full of cats! At different times of the year, the humane society sees a lot of unfortunate waste occur when the supply of dry food donations by wellmeaning donors far outweighs their demand. As well, the Humane Society tries very hard to keep their dogs and cats on a consistent supply of quality dry food, meaning that the same brand is always used every day. This aids their pets in having a healthier stay; having fewer upset tummies is better for all the pets and for staff too! Canned food takes up less space to store and has a longer shelf life, so bagged pet food is graciously declined for all of these reasons. Treats and toys can also be packed into mouse-proof plastic bins and used out at need. For people who are considering donating food to the Moose Jaw Humane Society at this game, the shelter would like to let them know that they can instead make a cash donation to the shelter and have it allocated directly towards food. The humane society does have the opportunity to buy their dry food for their cats and dogs from a wholesaler at a reduced cost. This not only allows them to purchase the food they need at a reasonable price, but they can also control the supply they have on hand, thus preventing waste and spoilage. Cash is the shelter’s preferred donation type. If anyone wishes to donate something a little more tangible, the shelter does suggest buying gift cards so the food or products can be purchased at the time need. Gift cards can also be used for other items in great need, such as cleaning supplies and cat litter, which are often overlooked as some of the basic necessities of running an animal shelter. (Other items on the shelter’s wish-list may be found on their website, www.mjhs.ca) To check out the promotional video that the Warriors produced about the “Filling Empty Nets” night, please visit their website at http://www.mjwarriors. ca The Moose Jaw Humane Society is a non-profit organization providing care, protection and medical needs for the abandoned, abused, and neglected animals of Moose Jaw and surrounding communities. The shelter currently relies on fundraisers and donations for 80% of its operating budget. The Moose Jaw Humane Society believes all animals have intrinsic value, deserving humane and compassionate treatment. The Moose Jaw Humane Society cares for over 1500 animals each year.

Bella4 year old pyrenees collie cross I am the longest resident of the shelter right now. I try not to let that get me down, but some days it is really hard to put on a smile and wag my tail. I am house trained and walk well on a leash. I LOVE people and attention but I would do best in a home with older children and an experienced dog person. Cats should not be a part of my life. I like some dogs and others not so much. I am a big girl with a big heart!

Haven 3-4month old pitbull terrier cross I am a sweet little girl who would love the opportunity to become a beloved member of your family. My whole body wiggles with excitement when I see people. I get along well with the other dogs I have met here. Really, who could resist a happy puppy?

N e d d y – o l d e r adult male pomeranian chihuahua cross Are you looking for a cute little lap dog? What about me? I am a little older fella but I am quite affectionate and love to snuggle. I think I might look quite adorable riding around in one of those shoulder bags too. I could go everywhere you go, wouldn’t we have fun!

Midasy o u n g adult male Much like the famous King Midas of mythology I have realized that it is the simple things in life that really make you rich. A warm lap to snuggle up on, a fluffy bed, a bit of food and a family to love; these are all a fellow like myself could ask for

Keko- – 6 month old male I was dropped off outside of the shelter on one of the -40 frigid winter days. Luckily for me, the shelter staff were in the building and heard me crying. They scooped me up and made me a nice bed and fed me some supper. I am very grateful to be in where it is warm and will gladly wait here for my forever family to come and adopt me.

Pirate- – adult male The shelter received a call about me and rushed to my rescue. The people who found me were sure I had been hit by a car. I was covered in blood and they were quite concerned. The shelter staff ran me to the closest vet clinic. Once I was cleaned up it was determined by injuries were caused by a cat fight. After recovering, I have decided life on the streets isn’t what it is cracked up to be. Staying inside where it is warm and you receive lots of cuddles and get fed everyday is the life I prefer.

• When the Earth undergoes a long-term reduction in surface and atmospheric temperatures, glaciers and ice sheets may expand. This is known as an ice age, or more accurately, a glacial age. Experts say there have been at least five major ice ages over the Earth’s history. They are probably the result of an interaction between very small changes in the Earth’s orbit, changes in ocean currents, and changes in the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. We can see the effects of glaciers across the continent – the Great Lakes and most of Minnesota’s and Wisconsin’s lakes were carved out by glaciers and filled up with melting water. • During the 17th and 18th centuries, the world moved into the Age of Enlightenment, a cultural movement promoted by the intellectuals of that time, such as Isaac Newton and Voltaire.

No, Tidbits isn’t laughing about anything –we’re just bringing you all kinds of terms that begin with har-! • That comic jester dressed in a diamondpatterned robe, tights, and mask is known as a harlequin. This nimble clown has been performing his acrobatics and occasional magic tricks since the 11th century. The romance novel publishing company that took the name of Harlequin was founded in 1949 by a Canadian businessman. Today, the Toronto-based company publishes novels in 31 languages on six continents, with offices in Japan, Australia, Sweden, Spain, Greece, Brazil, and Turkey, among many others. Since its founding, more than six billion books have been sold. • The distinctive sound of the harmonica is achieved by blowing air into the instrument’s reed chambers. Each chamber has multiple reeds of varying

sizes that vibrate when air is blown in or drawn out. Longer reeds will produce deep lower sounds, while the short reeds make higher pitches. The harmonica was developed in Europe in the early 1800s.

• What are you eating if you’re dining on haricot vert? Green beans! Haricot translates from the French word for “beans” and vert means “green.” French cut green beans are longer and thinner and more tender.

• The prestigious Harvard University is America’s oldest institution of higher learning, established in 1636. It takes its name from an English clergyman, John Harvard, who was the first significant benefactor of the college, bequeathing his 400-volume library and half of his estate upon his death in 1638. The library’s humble beginnings have grown to the largest academic library in the United States. Eight U.S. presidents have graduated from Harvard, as well as 62 living billionaires. If you’re planning to attend this year, plan on handing over close to $55,000 for the tuition and related fees.

• In 1901, 21-year-old William S. Harley drafted a blueprint of an engine designed to fit into a bicycle. Two years later, he and his partner Arthur Davidson offered the first HarleyDavidson motorcycle to the public, working out of a 10 x 15-foot wooden shed. Their first dealer opened for business the following year in Chicago. In 1906, their new factory was erected, measuring 28 x 80 feet. About 20,000 Harley-Davidson motorcycles were used by the U.S. Army during World War I, with half of the company’s production during those years sold to the military. This year, the company expects to ship more than a quarter million

motorcycles worldwide. • A person described as harum-scarum lacks a sense of responsibility and behaves in a reckless manner. It’s also the name of a 1965 Elvis Presley musical film, in which the King plays a kidnapped American in the Middle East who is recruited by a group of assassins. Elvis’ 24th album by the same name was released that year. • If you’re familiar with the terms picot and Kloster block, you may be an experienced embroiderer. These stitches are performed on hardanger fabric, a woven cotton material, typically with 22 stitches per inch. The technique is thought to have its origins in ancient Persia. A picot is a decorative loop achieved by twisting the thread around the needle. Kloster blocks consist of five parallel satin stitches.

• The period between 1750 and 1850 was the Industrial Age, when dramatic advances in manufacturing, transportation, and technology produced powerful changes in the economy and culture. The introduction of steam power and improvements in mining created huge advancements. Manufacturing machines allowed mass production of goods.

• The 1920s, commonly called the Roaring Twenties, was a time of economic prosperity and rapid industrial growth. Drastic social changes came along, including the growth of jazz music, which was so popular that the decade became known as the Jazz Age. The sounds of Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, and Benny Goodman dominated popular music. It was a time of breaking with tradition and turning toward modern technology. Young people took joy in shocking the older generation – women bobbed their hair and wore short skirts with silk stocking, taking on the nickname “Flappers.” The Jazz Age came tumbling down on October 29, 1929, with the crash of the stock market, ushering in the Great Depression.

• We entered the Atomic Age when the first atomic bomb was detonated over Japan in 1945. The phrase Atomic Age was invented by a New York Times journalist named William Laurence, who was the official journalist for the U.S. Manhattan Project, which developed the first nuclear weapons. After witnessing the Japan bombings, he wrote a series of articles supporting the advantages of the new weapon.

Sick of Winter Two friends lived in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. They were sick of winter, so they went to a travel agent and booked a trip to Australia. When the two friends got off the plane - still wearing their down jackets, wool hats and snow boots - they wandered into a pub and sat down. The locals wondered about these strangers, so one of the Aussies walked over to the visitors and said, “G’day, mates. Where’re you from?” “Saskatoon, Saskatchewan,” one of the Canadians replied. “Oh,” said the Aussie, returning to his table. “So where are they from?” the other locals asked. “Don’t know,” replied the Aussie. “They don’t appear to speak English.”

DVD Reviews “THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN, PART 2”: This is it for fans of the enormously successful movie franchise based on Stephenie Meyer’s novels, the finale ... and the theatrical box-office take proves that devotees turned out in force for it. Now parents - and both vampires now, too - Bella and Edward (Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson) do their best to protect their fast-growing daughter (Mackenzie Foy) from enemies, resulting in a genuinely epic battle well-staged by director Bill Condon. Taylor Lautner, Ashley Greene, Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Kellan Lutz and Billy Burke are among the other series regulars who all get their swan-song moments here. DVD extras: two “making-

“THE MASTER”: Oscar-nominated for all of its key performances, writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson’s compelling and challenging drama casts Joaquin Phoenix as a troubled World War II veteran who falls under the spell of an influential man (the superb Philip Seymour Hoffman, in the sort of acting job it’s hard to imagine anyone else doing) determined to launch a new social movement. The lessons go only so far before the student rebels. Amy Adams plays the self-styled leader’s wife in a cast that also includes Ambyr Childers, Jesse Plemons (“Friday Night Lights”) and Laura Dern. DVD extras: extended and deleted scenes. *** “CHASING MAVERICKS”: In the same manner as “Soul Surfer” not that long ago, this drama tells the true, earnest story of a young person pitted against nature ... the wet brand of it, more specifically. Jonny Weston plays Jay Moriarity, a surfer determined to conquer one of the biggest waves there is. He seeks guidance from an

deeper than riding a board. The film was helmed by two top directors, Michael Apted and Curtis Hanson. Co-stars include Elisabeth Shue and Abigail Spencer. ***

“CHICKEN WITH PLUMS”: Featured at several film festivals, this fanciful story of a violinist and his recollections takes unusual forms in the hands of two filmmakers who also displayed their technique in the acclaimed “Persepolis,” Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud. Satrapi’s graphic novel is the source of the tale, in which the musician (Mathieu Amalric, “Quantum of Solace”) mourns the loss of his cherished violin and decides there’s nothing worth continuing to live for. His dreams may indicate differently, though. Isabella Rossellini also appears. DVD extras: audio commentary by, and question-and-answer session with, Satrapi and Paronnaud. *** “THE CLIENT LIST: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON”: After starring in a TV movie of the same name, Jennifer Love

hit Lifetime series. She plays a Texas wife and mother in desperate need of income after her husband leaves her, so she works in a spa where she tries to resist incentives to provide “extra services” to the clientele. Loretta Devine and Cybill Shepherd respectively play the Hewitt character’s boss and mother, with Colin Egglesfield (“Something Borrowed”) as the masseuse’s ex-brother-in-law, who wants to remain in her life. DVD extras: outtakes; deleted scenes. *** “LIBERACE: THE CANDELABRA COLLECTION”: There’s been a lot of talk lately about the showman whose flamboyant style was backed by true piano mastery, since Michael Douglas plays him in an upcoming HBO movie. It’s the real deal who’s on view here, though, with two holiday television specials included in the menu of offerings that prove why the knowingly flashy Liberace was such a star attraction throughout his career. ***

A redneck farmer from back in the hills walked twelve miles, one way, to the general store. “Heya, Wilbur,” said Sam, the store owner. “Tell me, are you and Myrtle still making fires up there by rubbing stones and flint together?” “You betcha, Sam. Ain’t no other way. Why?” “Got something to show you. Something to make fire. It’s called a Match.” ‘Match? Never heard of it.” “Watch this. If you want a fire you just do this,” Sam says, taking a match and striking it on his pants.” “Huh. Well, that’s something, but that ain’t for me, Sam.” “Well, why not?” “I can’t be walking twelve miles to borrow your pants every time I want a fire.”

Wolfgang’ s Kitchen

By Wolfgang Puck

Making Great Cooking Easier Than You Ever Imagined

I love chocolate. Put a dessert flavored with it near me and I have to taste it. My wife, Gelila, will even sometimes hide little chocolate truffles for me to find in the house when I come home late after working in my restaurants. She knows that even a little taste of good chocolate will make me happy. But for some people, just a little chocolate will do. So, I thought I would share with you a fabulous non-chocolate dessert. It’s a classic French pastry called a Pithiviers, named for the town south of Paris where it was first created. What makes a Pithiviers so special? First of all, it’s based on puff pastry, with thin, flaky layers that taste seductively buttery and yet feel so delicate on the lips. And then there’s the traditional

filling: a seductively rich almond cream. Better still, as out-of-the-ordinary as the Pithiviers may sound, you’ll find it surprisingly easy to prepare. There’s no need for you to make the puff pastry from scratch, because excellent, ready-to-bake puff pastry awaits you right now in the frozen foods section of just about any supermarket. And the almond cream filling? Well, all you have to do is put six widely available ingredients in a food processor fitted with the stainless-steel blade, pulse them together, and chill the mixture in the refrigerator for an hour before assembling the pastry. If you want your Pithiviers to make even more of an impression, that’s surprisingly easy to achieve, too. Buy some ripe, jumbo strawberries or plump, juicy raspberries to garnish each serving. Prepare some whipped cream and add a dollop to each serving. In place of the almond extract in the filling, use a splash of orange flower water or rosewater to give it a more exotic aroma. But if you’re preparing this for an irrepressible chocoholic: Before you chill the almond cream filling, fold into it about 1/2 cup of bittersweet chocolate chips, or 4 ounces of coarsely chopped bittersweet chocolate. And enjoy! Find the recipe on page 15

Totally True, Useless Facts: • Hallmark makes cards for quite a number of different family relationships, 105 in all. • Cost of raising a medium-size dog to the age of eleven: $6,400. • Honey is the only food that does not spoil. • An eagle can kill a young deer and fly away with it. • In the Caribbean there are oysters that can climb trees. • Polar bears are left-handed. • Intelligent people have more zinc and copper in their hair. • Eskimos never gamble. • Starfish have eight eyes--one at the end of each leg.

• First novel ever written on a typewriter was Tom Sawyer. • If a statue in the park of a person on a horse has both front legs in the air, the person died in battle; if the horse has one front leg in the air, the person died as a result of wounds received in battle; if the horse has all four legs on the ground, the person died of natural causes. • No word in the English language rhymes with month, orange, silver, or purple. • Iceland consumes more Coca-cola per capita than any other nation. “Underground” is the only word in the English language that begins and ends with the letters “und.”

“Award Winning Water”

PITHIVIERS

By Wolfgang Puck

ALMOND CREAM FILLING: 4 ounces blanched almonds 4 ounces sugar 1-1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 4 ounces unsalted butter, cut into several pieces 2 large cage-free eggs 1 tablespoon almond extract PASTRY: All-purpose flour, for dusting 1 pound store-bought frozen puff pastry, thawed following package instructions 1 large cage-free egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water, for egg wash

First, make the Almond Cream Filling: In a food processor fitted with the stainless-steel blade, combine the almonds, sugar, and flour. Pulse the machine on and off repeatedly until the mixture reaches a mealy consistency. Then, a piece at a time, pulse in the butter. One at a time, pulse in the eggs. Add the almond extract. Continue to process until a smooth, thick cream forms. With a rubber spatula, scrape the mixture into a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before use.

Call 693-9949 631-4074 “Clean All Weather Access” When Albert Einstein was making the rounds of the speaker’s circuit, he usually found himself eagerly longing to get back to his laboratory work. One night as they were driving to yet another rubber-chicken dinner, Einstein mentioned to his chauffeur (a man who somewhat resembled Einstein in looks & manner) that he was tired of speechmaking. “I have and idea, boss,” his chauffeur said. “I’ve heard you give this speech so many times. I’ll bet I could give it for you.” Einstein laughed loudly and said, “Why not? Let’s do it!” When they arrive at the dinner, Einstein donned the chauffeur’s cap and jacket and sat in the back of the room. The chauffeur gave a beautiful rendition of Einstein’s speech and even answered a few questions expertly. Then a supremely pompous professor asked an extremely esoteric question about anti-matter formation, digressing here and there to let everyone in the audience know that he was nobody’s fool. Without missing a beat, the chauffeur fixed the professor with a steely stare and said, “Sir, the answer to that question is so simple that I will let my chauffeur, who is sitting in the back, answer it for me.”

To assemble the Pithiviers, on a work surface lightly dusted with flour, use a rolling pin to roll out the puff pastry to a uniform thickness of about 1/8 inch. Using serving plates or pie plates as a guide, cut out one 10inch and one 11-inch pastry circle. Place the smaller circle on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush the edge of the smaller circle with some of the egg wash. Spread the chilled almond cream in the center, leaving a 2-inch outer band uncovered. Cover the filling with the larger circle and lightly press down all along the edges to seal the circles of pastry loosely together. Brush the top pastry circle with egg wash. Loosely cover with waxed paper or parchment paper and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Using the dull edge of a paring knife, seal together the pastry circles by pressing down on the perimeter of the Pithiviers in a repeating pattern perpendicular to the pastry circles’ overlapping edges. Decorate the top pastry by lightly scoring it with the knife tip from the center towards the edge in half-circles spaced about 1/2 inch apart, taking care not to cut all the way through the pastry. Then, cut a few 1-inch vents in the top, too. Transfer the baking sheet to the preheated oven and bake until the pastry is golden brown, about 40 minutes. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the Pithiviers rest for 15 to 30 minutes before serving it warm, cut into wedges. The baked pastry can also be covered and refrigerated, to be served cold or at room temperature.
