Drought Tolerant Interior Seed Blends

by Kathy Wolfe

This week, Tidbits is not only saying “Hey!” – we’re examining all sorts of words that begin with the letters yo-, everything from Yogi Bear to yodeling! • You’ve probably never heard the term vitellus, but it’s the proper name given to an egg yolk! The yolk, which contains all of the egg’s fat and cholesterol, accounts for about one-third of the liquid weight of an egg and contains approximately 60 calories. The egg yolk might have a bad reputation for its cholesterol content, but don’t overlook the 18 amino acids, vitamins A, D, E, and K, and minerals calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium that are all essential for various body processes. • Can you yodel? If you’re able to make quick fluctuations between your normal chest singing voice and a falsetto, you can! The well-known “Yodel-Ay-EEE-ooo” features the “EEE” sung in the head voice, with the other tones sung in the chest voice. It’s believed that yodeling got its start as a method of communication between shepherds and their stock in the Swiss Alps. The technique was made popular again in recent years with a song featured in Disney’s 1994 The Lion King called “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.” Also known as “Wimoweh,” it was first recorded in 1939, then again in 1961. turn the page for more!

YO, DUDE! (continued):

• When you open a carton of yogurt, do you know what you’re eating? It’s a mixture of milk and cream that has been fermented with live bacteria at a warm temperature. Because your body needs to have a certain amount of “good” bacteria in the digestive tract, lactic acid-producing bacteria such as acidophilus are added to the mix. Nomadic Bedouins process camel’s milk into drinkable yogurt, and often live on nothing else for six months. Although yogurt has probably been around for about 8,000 years, the well-known Yoplait has only been existence for 49 of those. In 1964, a group of French dairy farmers agreed to merge in order to sell their goods nationwide. They linked the names of two of the farmers, Yola and Coplait to form their new brand Yoplait.

• The most important holiday of the Jewish calendar is Yom Kippur, which translates “Day of Atonement.” It’s a day set aside to repent from and atone for the sins of the past year. It occurs on the tenth day of the Jewish month of Tishri, which in 2013 will be September 14. Yom Kippur is a day of fasting, and traditions include no eating or drinking, no bathing, and no wearing of leather shoes. It is also customary to wear white on this day as a symbol of purity, representing the promise that “our sins shall be made as white as snow.” Back in 1965, Los Angeles Dodger pitcher Sandy Koufax made the news when he decided not to pitch the first Across 1 Smoldering bit 6 Slip a Mickey 10 It may have all the answers 14 Stiller’s partner 15 High rollers’ destination 16 Half of 10? 17 Speed skater Apolo __ Ohno 18 Health enhancer, so it’s said 20 It “is no problem.

• Renowned cellist Yo Yo Ma was born in Paris to Chinese parents. He began studying the cello at age four, shortly before the family moved to New York City. As a child prodigy he began performing at age five, and at seven, performed for Dwight D. Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy. • Baby boomers will recall a favorite cartoon character created by Hanna-Barbera in 1958. Yogi Bear made his debut in the animated Huckleberry Hound Show. In 1961, Yogi was given his own show, which featured his adventures in Jellystone Park, accompanied by his faithful companion Boo-Boo. They spent their days stealing “pic-a-nic baskets” from campers and outsmarting Park Ranger Smith. Yogi was full of self-confidence as he regularly proclaimed, “I’m smarter than the average bear!” Yogi’s character was modeled after the popular Honeymooners character Ed Norton, played by popular celebrity of the time Art Carney.

• Lawrence Peter “Yogi” Berra is considered one of baseball’s greatest catchers. Yogi, who played 17 years with the New York Yankees, was a 15-time All Star and was the American League MVP three times. He was later a player/coach for the NY Mets, a

▶ Wherever you go in Nova Scotia, you’re never more than 56 km (35 miles) from the sea. ▶ When explorer Samuel Hearne found the local Dene people using knives made of locally quarried copper, he dubbed them ‘Yellowknives.’ ▶ A sourdough starter is a mixture of flour, water, and yeast that’s used to make bread rise. In arctic regions, it’s difficult to keep the mixture from freezing, which kills the yeast and renders it useless. During cold nights in the Yukon, miners would take the sourdough starter to bed with them to keep it warm all night long, leading to their nickname of ‘sourdoughs.’ ▶ Nunavut means ‘our land’ in the Inuit tongue. ▶ The giant beaver, now extinct, inhabited Canada prior to the latest ice age. Normal modern beavers weigh about 30 kg (66 lb) but giant beavers weighed about 200 kg (440 lbs).

YO-YO FACTS

June 6 has been proclaimed Naitonal Yo-YoDay in commemoration of the birthday of yo-yo king Donald Duncan. Follow along and discover some facts you may not have known about this favorite toy. • The official description of a yo-yo is “an axle connected to two disks, with a length of twine looped around the axle.” The first historical evidence of a yo-yo was found in Greece from the year 500 B.C., a vase featuring a painting of a boy playing with the toy. A 1789 painting of France’s King Louis XVII, which hangs in the Louvre, shows the young monarch with a yo-yo as well. Two Ohio men received the first U.S. patent on the item in 1866.

The Grateful Fed has a delightful and diverse menu and you have to see it to appreciate it...Some of the menu names are quite a chuckle. Ricky says... “Do the Burgers... Burger fanatics know as well as I do; all burgers have a flare and taste unique to the chef that creates them and these burger fare selections are a stand alone taste bud frenzy.” *Hors D’Oeuvres * Finger Foods * *Full Course Service* *Private Parties * Corporate Functions* Located right in the heart of downtown Kelowna kabougoush@shaw.ca www.thegratefulfed.ca 509 Bernard Ave, Kelowna, BC (250) 862 8621 If you would like a free review Contact RickyReviews (250) 545 2558

History

World of the

June 3: in 1539, Hernando de Soto claimed Florida for Spain. In 1949, “Dragnet” was first broadcast on radio. June 4: in 1929, George Eastman demonstrated the first Technicolor movie. In 1989, hundreds, possibly thousands, of people died as Chinese army troops stormed Tiananmen Square in Beijing to crush a studentled pro-democracy movement. June 5: in 1783, Joseph and Jacques Montgolfier demonstrated their hot-air balloon in a 10-minute flight over France. In 1968, Sen. Robert F. Kennedy was shot and mortally wounded just after claiming victory in California’s Democratic presidential primary. June 6: in 1944, 150,000 Allied troops stormed the beaches of Normandy, France, in the “D-Day” invasion of Europe. In 1967, the Six-Day War between Israel and its Arab neighbors began with pre-emptive strikes by the Jewish nation.

• In 1928, Pedro Flores launched the Yo-Yo Manufacturing Company in Santa Barbara, California. Within a year, he had opened two more factories, employing a total of 600 workers, and producing 300,000 yoyo’s every day. By the end of another year, Donald Duncan had purchased all of Flores’ assets and had the name “yo-yo” registered as a trademark, meaning only he could use that name for the toy. • Duncan moved the entire operation to Luck, Wisconsin in 1946, and the community became known as the “Yo-Yo Capital of the World,” cranking out 3,600 yo-yo’s per hour. For 14 years, maple wooden yo-yo’s were manufactured, using 1,000,000 board feet every year. Plastic yo-yo’s came along in 1960. • Competitors of Duncan didn’t like that he had the exclusive rights to the word “yo-yo” and fought for the rights to use it. Unfortunately for the Duncan company, in 1965, after a long and expensive court battle, a Federal Court of Appeals ruled that the trademark for

June 7: in 1775, the United Colonies changed its name to the United States. In 1929, the sovereign state of Vatican City came into existence. June 8: in 1948, the “Texaco Star Theater” made its debut on NBC-TV with Milton Berle as guest host. Berle was later named the show’s permanent host. In 1968, authorities announced the capture in London of James Earl Ray, suspected assassin of civil rights leader the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. June 9: in 68, the Roman Emperor Nero committed suicide. In 1978, leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints struck down a 148-year-old policy of excluding black men from the Mormon priesthood. Answer to last week’s question: This week in 1969, Mick Taylor replaced chronic drug abuser Brian Jones as rhythm guitarist for the Rolling Stones. This week’s question: In 1977, what 3-year-old thoroughbred completed horse racing’s Triple Crown by winning the Belmont Stakes?

coach and manager for the Mets and Yankees, and a coach for the Houston Astros. As a player, coach, and manager, Yogi appeared in 21 World Series (14 years as a player). The Yankees retired his Number 8 jersey in 1972, the same year he was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Yogi was well known for his witty comments, often called “Yogi-isms,” such as, “Baseball is 90% mental and the other half is physical.” When asked why the Yankees lost the 1960 World Series, he responded, “We made too many wrong mistakes.” A childhood friend gave Yogi his famous nickname, saying he looked like a Hindu snake charmer he had seen in a movie. • The name of Denton True Young might not be familiar, but surely you’ve heard his nickname, Cy.

the word itself was not valid. Duncan lost its rights, and profits diminished to the point that the company had to declare bankruptcy three years later. They were bought out by Flambeau and surrendered the company and even the famous name of Duncan.

• Well-known yo-yo tricks include “sleeping,” which keeps a yo-yo spinning at the end of its uncoiled string. Looping keeps the body of the yo-yo in constant motion without sleeping, while “walking the dog” involves throwing a strong sleeper, then gently allowing the yo-yo to touch the floor, where it rolls forward like a dog on a leash. • Enthusiasts can see the world’s largest yoyo at the National Yo-Yo Museum in Chico, California. It measures 50 inches (127 cm) high

and weighs 256 lbs. (116 kg.). The museum also houses yo-yo’s dating back to the 1920s. Chico is home to the National Yo-Yo Contest each October. • The yo-yo was first taken into space in April of 1985 aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery when NASA introduced their Toys in Space project.

Walking Through Vernon By Marty Kelly

Hey guys, this week I have to mention Panago Pizza. They are going with the digital age. From now on when you call you will be sent automatically to a call center, (250)310-0001. I am losing it with computers. I do not understand them and I do not know if I ever will. I recall when we had party lines and you that had them know what I am talking about. I remember when the milkman delivered the milk to my door every day, the mailman delivered every day and the ice-man came up the street once a week. We used to go to the drugstore for a soda and it tasted like a real soda, (for a nickel)! Parents used to let their kids ride in the back of a pick-up and when I felt like it , myself and Pete W. would go out in the field and shoot our 22 calibre rifles at soup cans, (IN THE CITY!). We never - and our neighbors never - locked our doors. Recently a woman called the police on me because I was parked near the Blue Heron Nests by Roster’s because she thought I was watching her kids. I have been parking there every morning for almost three years! All I can ask is “What Have We Done?”

baseball career that started in 1890 pitching for the Cleveland Spiders. He moved on to the St. Louis Perfectos after eight seasons. Young established records that still stand today after more than 100 years, including most wins (511), career innings pitched (7,355), most career games started (815), and most completed games (749). He earned the nickname Cy after his fastball destroyed several fences. Reporters wrote that the fences looked like a cyclone had hit them, and the name stuck. The Cy Young Award, given to the leagues’ best pitchers, was established in 1956.

An Old man went to the doctor complaining of a terrible pain in his leg. “I am afraid it’s just old age”, replied the doctor, “there is nothing we can do about it.” “That can’t be” fumed the old man, “you don’t know what you are doing.” “How can you possibly know I am wrong?” countered the doctor. “Well it’s quite obvious,” the old man replied, “my other leg is fine, and it’s the exact same age!” ******* A boy had reached four without giving up the habit of sucking his thumb, though his mother had tried everything from bribery to reasoning to painting it with lemon juice to discourage the habit. Finally she tried threats, warning her son that, “If you don’t stop sucking your thumb, your stomach is going to blow up like a balloon.” Later that day, walking in the park, mother and son saw a pregnant woman sitting on a bench. The four-year-old considered her gravely for a minute, then spoke to her saying, “Uhoh ... I know what you’ve been doing.”

• The Yorkshire Terrier breed of dog was developed in the 1800s in the county of Yorkshire, England, to catch rats in clothing mills. The smallest Yorkie in recorded history was just 2.5 inches (6.35 cm) tall and weighed 4 ounces (113 grams). Famous Yorkie owners include Paris Hilton, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, and Vanessa Williams. Audrey Hepburn’s Yorkie Mr. Famous appeared with her in a scene in her 1957 movie Funny Face.

• The notorious Cole Younger Gang teamed up with the James Brothers in the 1870s and the eightmember band of outlaws went on a spree of train, stagecoach, and bank robberies. Their crimes came to a halt during a Minnesota bank robbery attempt in 1874. The James Brothers escaped, three other members were killed, and the three Younger brothers were captured. Cole Younger had been shot 11 times, but survived to serve 25 years in prison, after which he was paroled. During his prison time, he founded the longest-running prison newspaper in the U.S.

Pet Bits Q: My newly-adopted dog is beginning to understand house training. Now, how do I get him to signal me with a woof when he’s gotta go? A: When your dog barks, say “Good!” and let him outdoors. At first, choose a time when you know he’s likely to do his business, and encourage him to bark (perhaps through play). However, be careful what you’ve trained for. Once you’ve trained your dog to bark to go out, how will you know if he’s barking just to bark, or wants out? Some dogs do learn to bark just to be let out. They don’t need to go, but simply want to run around the yard.

Reto Gebert of St. Hubertus Estate Winery presents award cheques to winning wine label creators Ian Hoyte, left (Glowing Amber) and Logan Miller, right (Fireman’s Red). St. Hubert’s Label Design Contest to find winning labels for 2 wines marking the 10th anniversary of the 2003 Kelowna fires was a tight race. Votes came from all over BC, Alberta and as far away as Whitehorse, Yukon. Businesses, schools and members of multiple fire departments helped select the winning label for the Fireman’s Red and the Glowing Amber wines. Pictured above are the winning artists, Ian Hoyte (Glowing Amber) and Logan Miller (Fireman’s Red). Each of the winners received a $250 cheque and will each be receiving a bottle of the Fireman’s Red and Glowing Amber Ten Year Anniversary Edition once they are released by St. Hubertus Estate Winery on August 23, 2013, marking the day that ten years ago the original winery was destroyed by the fire. (In the case of underage artists, parent(s)/guardian(s) will receive the anniversary wine). The winning label designs will be used on 50 cases of Glowing Amber and 50 cases of Fireman’s Red wine bottles commemorating the tenth anniversary of the Kelowna fire. With every bottle sold, $5 will be donated to the Kelowna Professional Fire Fighters’ Charitable Society. Preordering of the anniversary wines will begin later in the summer.
