• 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 hand-lettered “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. Turn the page for more!

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

The field of nursing wouldn’t be the same without the contributions of Florence Nightingale. This selfless woman gave up a life of privilege to minister to others and is considered the founder of modern nursing. • Born in 1820, Florence was named after the city of her birth, Florence, Italy. She was raised on a Derbyshire, England estate in a well-to-do family, and tutored by her father in mathematics, history, and philosophy. Her home education included Greek, French, Italian, Latin, and German, all languages she could speak. • At age 17, Florence told her family she had received a revelation from God, telling her she had a mission in life, and she abandoned her active social life and marriage proposals to devote her life to serving others. Although her parents voiced strong objections and disapproval, Florence entered a training school for nurses and went on to become superintendent of a charity-supported medical facility. • When the Crimean War broke out in 1854, Florence volunteered as a nurse and organized a group of 38 nurses to work at a Turkish hospital. Her first order of business was to clean up the filthy and unsanitary conditions at the facility, greatly reducing the death rate among wounded soldiers. The hospital had been built atop an immense cesspool, which had poisoned the entire building. As a result of her efforts, Florence became the leading expert on waste sanitation and fresh water irrigation, and continued to strive for hygienic medical conditions. Because she frequently made her rounds after dark, walking the halls with a lamp and comforting patients throughout the night, she soon came to be known as “The Lady with the Lamp.”

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 can trigger a sneeze since over-exertion can create drying in your nose and mouth. Plucking your eyebrows can even make you sneeze! It stimulates a facial nerve connected to our nasal passages. Similarly, rubbing your eyes can have the same effect. • Why don’t we sneeze in our sleep? The nerves that send a signal to the brain are also sleeping, so we don’t sneeze while we rest. • There are a few old wives’ tales about sneezing, including the belief that your heart stops. Although your chest contracts during a sneeze and blood flow is momentarily constricted, the heart does not stop. Its rhythm may be altered slightly for a few seconds, however. Some folks actually

HARLEYS (continued): 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. • Harley-Davidson expects to ship about 260,000 motorcycles to dealerships during 2013.

I can’t remember the last time I had a meal at a restaurant that was soooooo good I couldn’t stop thinking about it, or stop telling people about it, or stop planning when I might return. Yup, it really is that good! We order the weekly combination special for one and think at $7.95 that’s in line with what we spend at one of the nearby burger joints. Chicken fried rice, deep fried won ton with sweet & sour sauce, beef with broccoli and sweet & sour pork sounds like a great combination. We also order a combination for one of chicken chow mein, ginger beef and sweet & sour pork for $10.25. The food arrives on beautiful rectangular plates and looks too good to eat. We’ve all had lots of Chinese food before so how good could these standard menu items be? The short answer is, the best we’ve ever had, hands down! The beef with broccoli has a juicy and robust flavour. We comment on how amazingly good it is. And the ginger beef is crispy and tender with a delicious sauce. We learn that they use AAA beef from Alberta, fresh ground ginger, honey, real red pepper flakes and make the sauce fresh with no preservatives or MSG. We are totally blown away. The ginger beef is the best ginger beef we’ve eaten, by far, in the past 20 years Amazing! Everything else on our plates is equally great. Quality ingredients cooked by a master. I got to tell you; with friendly and attentive staff along with the most flavour-filled Chinese food you’ll ever eat your taste buds will be glad you came. Their website (www.meiweicuisine. com) says they are “The little restaurant that is BIG on TASTE.” I’ll say! What a treat! We are already planning our next visit. Hope to see you there.

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? 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.

AH-CHOO! (continued): believe that your eyeballs can pop out of your head during a sneeze. The slight increase in blood pressure behind the eyes during a sneeze is certainly not enough to dislodge eyeballs from their sockets. • According to folklore, if you sneeze, company is coming over. In Asia, it means someone is talking about you behind your back. Now if your cat sneezes, it’s going to rain! • 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. • When Donna Griffiths of Worcestershire, England, was 12 years old back in 1981, she sneezed once, then again, then continuously for the next 978 days, the record for the longest sneeze in the world. • No matter how you say it, it’s still a sneeze! In English we say “ah-choo,” but the French say “atchoum,” the Japanese say “hakushon,” while Italians say “hapsu” and Swedes say “atjo.” • How fast does a sneeze travel? A single sneeze can send 100,000 germs into the air at a speed of about 100 mph (161 km/hr). The bacteria from a sneeze can spread up to 150 feet (45.8 m) away.
