• In 1901, 21-year-old William Harley wrapped up a blueprint drawing of a single-cylinder engine designed to be attached to a regular bicycle frame. Two years later, with the help of his childhood friend Arthur Davidson, their first motorcycle rolled out of their first “factory,” a 10’ x 15’ wooden shed. Arthur’s brothers joined the company shortly afterward, boosting 1903’s production to three motorcycles. Eight cycles were sold in 1905, and 50 the following year. While the first Harley was black, customers in 1905 could choose black or the “Silent Grey Fellow,” Each had hand-painted stripes and a handlettered “Harley-Davidson Motor Company” on the fuel tank.

• Harley-Davidson expanded to a new factory measuring 28’ x 80’ in 1906, and six fulltime employees were on staff. The next year, production increased to 150. Another new factory came along in 1913, boasting 297,110 sq. ft, compared to the 2,240 sq. ft. of the 1906 facility. The larger area enabled the company to produce 12,904 cycles that year.

Tidbits Of Penticton-Summerland HARLEYS (continued):

• Seventeen years after the first cycle rolled out of that wooden shed, Harley-Davidson was the largest motorcycle company in the world, with dealerships in 67 countries. Over 28,000 motorcycles were produced in 1920.

• Of all the country’s motorcycle manufacturers in business in 1929, only Indian and HarleyDavidson were able to weather the stock market crash. Production at H-D dropped from 22,350 bikes to 3,703. Sales to police forces helped them survive the economy’s collapse.

• H-D profited greatly from the use of their motorcycles during war time. Over 20,000 Harleys were used during World War I, and nearly 90,000 were put into service during World War II.

• In 1946, foreign motorcycles hit the American market and the competition with British and Japanese bikes was fierce. British imports had a sportier appearance and were cheaper and more reliable. Favorable tax laws governing imports made these bikes even more attractive. Although Harley-Davidson introduced the Hydra-Glide with the Panhead engine in an attempt to compete, it was heavy and not as sporty. It didn’t take long for H-D’s market share to shrink to a mere 6% of the market. By 1950, 40% of the motorcycles in the U.S. were foreign-made.

• Marlon Brando was 30 years old when he rode a British Triumph in the 1954 movie The Wild One, the story of a motorcycle gang terrorizing a small town. The film’s popularity did nothing to help the sales of Harleys. In an effort to combat the appeal of British bikes, in 1957, H-D introduced the Sportster, considered

“father of the superbikes.”

• The 1969 cult film Easy Rider featured Peter Fonda as Captain America riding a completely transformed H-D Electra-Glide with a Panhead engine. Four bikes were customized for the making of the film. Three were stolen before the movie was completed, and one burned. Fonda later restored the burned bike and today that chopper can be seen at the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, Iowa. The Harleys ridden by the main characters in the film were purchased from the Los Angeles Police Department, as Harley-Davidson refused to provide free bikes for the movie.

• The 1960s ushered in the customizing trend, but H-D failed to jump on the bandwagon in time. Their earnings faded, and the company was forced to go public, selling shares for the first time in 1965. In 1969, the family relinquished control of the business they had owned for 66 years, selling out to the American Machine and Foundry Company for $21 million. AMF, famous in the bowling industry, allowed the quality to slip considerably. Sales plummeted and by 1980, there seemed little chance of recovery for the company. In 1981, 13 senior H-D executives banded together and purchased the company from AMF for $80 million and the recovery began. In 1986, two million shares of common stock were offered, returning the company to public ownership. • There have been a number of “glides” throughout Harley history. The Hydra-Glide was introduced in 1949, with the first hydraulic front forks. This evolved into the Duo-Glide in 1958 with the addition of rear brakes and hydraulic rear suspension. The Electra-Glide came along with its electric starter motor in

Horoscope

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Be an equal opportunity friend. Make an effort to be friendly to everyone in the week ahead. The people least deserving of your hand in friendship may need it the most and repay your kindness. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Enjoy powerful new contacts in the week ahead. You could be passionate about getting what you want in areas that have to do with career, finance or business - and even love. Spread the joy around. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Expect the unexpected. In the upcoming week, your tastes might stray toward the new and unusual, or you might feel an urge to invest in antiques or update your computer with the latest gadgets. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You are not defeated when you lose, but you are defeated when you quit. In the week to come, you will receive plenty of encouragement. You can tap into staying power to see a project through to completion. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Make powerful connections in the upcoming week. It seems your popularity increases when your passion is sparked by meeting new and original personalities. You are revitalized by New Age ideas and isms. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Knowledge is power. If all you know how to do is row a boat, you won’t have a clue about what to do when the river runs dry. Learn as much as you can in the week ahead to be prepared for the future. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22.): You are torn two ways. In the week ahead, you feel eager to impulsively experiment and may take on something out of the ordinary. At the same time, however, your natural reserve may prevent you from going wild. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You have a passion for much more than fashion. Love and romance and the enjoyment of shared intimacies might be key elements for you this week. Give love a chance. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your heart might unwittingly take a walk on the wild side in the week ahead. When there are interesting things to see and do - as well as people to meet - it is difficult to get quite enough sleep. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Chop down problems one weed at a time. Your talent for organization can be applied to your relationships, as well. This week, your attention is riveted on making relationships perfectly divine. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The more, the merrier. Since you are respectful toward others, they tend to respect you and will very likely include you in group endeavors as a matter of course in the upcoming week. PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Romance, passion and love are gifts. But they aren’t like gift certificates that you can stick in a drawer and redeem later. Jump on any romantic opportunity immediately during the week to come.

AH-CHOO! We all do it! Sneeze, that is. But why do we do it? These curious facts about this process are nothing to sneeze at! • The official name for sneezing is sternutation. It begins as a nerve transmission and is a signal telling your brain that something in your nose needs to come out. Something tickles the lining of your nose, and the nerves initiate a message to the brain stem, which causes a chain of events throughout the body in the chest, abdomen, face, eyelids, and mucus glands. All the areas work together to expel the irritant by forcing air, saliva, and mucus out of the mouth and nose. Sometimes it takes several sneezes to rid your nose of the irritant. • The most common stimuli are dust, pollen, and pepper, but they’re not the only things that can bring on a sneeze. Powerful aromas can cause you to sneeze, as well as a fluctuation in temperature, especially colder air. Exercise

Worms versus Deep Tilling Gardeners know that earthworms in the garden are a sign of healthy soil. These earthy allies loosen the soil, create fertile soil clods or aggregates, provide pathways for plant roots, redistribute organic matter, and drain and aerate the soil. We routinely till in applications of organic matter to encourage earthworm activity, but now it appears that how we apply it matters more than we thought. Recent research presents some surprising evidence that deep tilling is not the best method. If the organic matter has been tilled into the soil six inches deep or more, earthworm tunnels will tend to be horizontal as they patrol to find food. However, if the organic matter is left on the soil surface, the tunnels tend to be vertical as the earthworms dig upwards to their food source. Vertical tunnels not only allow for better air and water penetration into the soil layers than horizontal tunnels. They also help with removing chemical toxins. The soil in the burrows created by vertical tunnels harbors more beneficial microbes, and these microbes can degrade pesticides and fertilizers. This fall, unless your soil quality is poor, till organic matter just a few inches into the soil leaving a 3- to 4-inch-thick layer on the surface. Earthworms will do their good work through the winter as long as the ground isn’t frozen.

Crop Rotation Nurtures and Defends The sight of large fields full of one type of crop ripening in the sun may now be a quintessential part of the countryside, but this mass-production method of cultivating a single species has long been known to cause problems: Large groups of the same crop make an easy target for pests. For this reason, non-organic commercial growers feel compelled to spray the whole area with pesticides. Soil nutrients are depleted when the ground is occupied by a large number of the same type of plant. This problem is compounded if the ground is used for the same crop next season – often the soil becomes so impoverished that artificial fertilizers are needed. Soil subjected to the same mechanical processes year after year will inevitably become compacted. While the gardener won’t be growing as intensively as the farmer, these problems may also be encountered on a smaller scale. You may see a drop in plant health and productivity if crops are grown in the same spot for many years. To avoid these pitfalls, adopt a crop rotation plan. The principle is straightforward enough – the same vegetables should not be planted in the same place year after year. As a system of organic gardening, crop rotation has many advantages. It lessens the need for pest control, the soil structure is maintained, the spread of soil-borne disease is reduced and nutrient depletion in the soil is avoided.

• There are a number of theories as to why folks say “Bless you” to someone after a sneeze. One is an ancient belief that sneezing is a neardeath experience, and it’s a blessing to have survived. The ancients also believed that the soul sneaks out of the body during a sneeze and that a blessing will prevent this and deter the devil from sneaking in. During the Roman Empire when bubonic plague struck, two of its symptoms were coughing and sneezing. The Pope recommended a blessing to people after a sneeze as protection. workout routine? • When Donna Griffiths of Worcestershire,

Q: My 16-year-old cat acts like he’s drunk, unsure, unstable and slow. When he’s done in the litter box, he falls over. He’s on medicine for hyperthyroid (disease) and pancreatitis. Our veterinarian doesn’t know what’s wrong with Joseph, and neither does a veterinary neurologist. Could the problem be dementia? Or maybe he’s dizzy. Joseph is affectionate and alert. We want the remainder of his life to be healthy and happy. Can you help?

1965, and on to the Super-Glide in 1971 and the Wide-Glide in 1980. • Harley has also had a variety of “heads” over the years. First there was the Flathead, dubbed as such because of the shape of the cylinder head cover. Introduced in 1929, it was a 45-cubic-inch sidevalve engine. The Knucklehead, the first V-Twin model, debuted in 1936 with its cylinder covers shaped like clenched fists. It featured two fuel tanks with the instrument panel positioned between them. It was produced until 1947. Along came the Panhead in 1948 with aluminum cylinder covers resembling upside-down saucepans. Panheads were around until 1965. The next year brought the Shovelhead, whose cylinder covers looked like the back of a shovel. Compare the Shovelhead’s engine size of 74 cubic inches with that 1903 model’s 25 cubic inches! The year 1984 brought in the Blockhead, an 80-cubic-inch engine.

• The 1932 Harley-Davidson could be purchased for around $300. If you’re looking to buy a 2013 Electra-Glide CVO Ultra-Classic 100th Anniversary Edition, better set aside about $38,000. A new Sportster will set you back around $11,000.

• For seven days every August, Main Street in Sturgis, South Dakota, population 6,700, is packed with thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts who gather to race and tour. The first rally was held in 1938, drawing nine racers and 200 spectators. The two-day rally offered $500 in prize money. Two years later, 150 racers participated in front of 5,000 onlookers. Close to 450,000 are expected for this year’s rally.

A: It sounds like you’re doing all the right things. It’s likely good news that the veterinary neurologist couldn’t determine the cause of Joseph’s problems. Dr. Susan Little, editor of the textbook “The Cat: Clinical Medicine and Management” (Elsevier, St. Louis, MO, 2012; $151), notes that you mention Joseph is alert and reasonably active. If he isn’t confused and doesn’t yowl overnight, it’s unlikely that the problem is feline Alzheimer’s (feline cognitive dysfunction syndrome). If your veterinarian hasn’t already done so, consider having your cat tested for low blood potassium and anemia, Little says. She adds that it may simply be Joseph is weak due to muscle wasting, which sometimes occurs in elderly people and pets. Unfortunately, they don’t make walkers for cats.

“OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN”: America’s most famous residence has had a rough year on the screen, thanks to “White House Down” and this preceding thriller, which has the same theme of enemies invading the presidential home. Directed by Antoine Fuqua, this version stars Gerard Butler as a disgraced ex-bodyguard who comes to the chief executive’s (Aaron Eckhart) aid again when terrorists strike. The strong cast also includes Morgan Freeman, Melissa Leo, Angela Bassett, Dylan McDermott, Robert Forster, Radha Mitchell (“Red Widow”) and Ashley Judd. DVD extras: eight “making-of ” documentaries; deleted scenes. ***

DVD Reviews

“THE COMPANY YOU KEEP”: Robert Redford remains every bit a movie star, as he demonstrates in this melodrama that he also directed. He plays a former radical who’s now a lawyer in Albany, N.Y., but he’s forced back on the run by the arrest of a former colleague and the curiosity of a young reporter (Shia LaBeouf). The very impressive cast also includes three other Oscar winners besides Redford - Julie Christie, Susan Sarandon and Chris Cooper - plus Nick Nolte, Stanley Tucci, Richard Jenkins, Terrence Howard, Anna Kendrick and Sam Elliott. DVD extras: two “making-of ” documentaries; red-carpet and press conference footage. ***

• Harley-Davidson expects to ship about 260,000 “THE BIG WEDDING”: The movie itself may not be Oscar-worthy, but there are Academy Award winners motorcycles to dealerships during 2013. to spare in this would-be comedy that’s sort of a thematic spin on “The Birdcage.” Robin Williams starred in that film, and he also turns up in this ultimately too-frantic tale of a divorced couple (Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton) pretending still to be married for the sake of their soon-to-wed adopted son (Ben Barnes). Susan Sarandon is another Oscar owner in the cast; Katherine Heigl, Amanda Seyfried and Christine Ebersole appear as well. DVD extra: “making-of ” documentary. **

“GIRLS: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON”: Still a polarizing show for many viewers, the HBO comedy that’s the brainchild of star and frequent writer and director Lena Dunham sends its heroines down a variety of paths for its sophomore round. Hannah (Dunham) is trying to move on in her personal life while still being pulled by her romantic past, making her miss the presence of her bestie Marnie (Allison Williams) that much more. Zosia Mamet and Jemima Kirke also continue prominently in the cast. DVD extras: “making-of ” documentaries; audio commentary by cast and crew; “Guys on Girls” featurette; episode table read. *** “EMPEROR”: Tommy Lee Jones’ performance as Gen. Douglas MacArthur - complete with pipe and sunglasses - is this drama’s true spark, but much of the focus is on one of the military legend’s aides, a general (Matthew Fox, “Lost”) tasked with deciding whether Japan’s Emperor Hirohito (Takataro Kataoka) should be tried and executed for war crimes. A resurfaced relationship from the past makes the mission more difficult. DVD extras: “making-of ” documentary; audio commentary by director Peter Webber and producer Yoko

Narahashi; deleted scenes; photo galleries. ***
