Independent & Trusted Investment Advice

Mary Rourke

There is nothing that makes Spring sweeter than the rich taste of fresh real maple syrup. The process of making maple syrup from sap has b een a Canadian tradition for centuries. While maple lovers everywhere pour the thick delicious syrup on Sunday pancakes, many may not know just how that golden delight is made.

It takes the cold nights and the warmer days of Spring to create just the right conditions for making maple syrup. Once the ground starts thawing, the tree sucks up water from the ground, even during the cold nights. When the temperature is warmer during the day, the water is forced to the bottom of the tree making it easier to collect the sap. The best time to gather the sap from the maple tree is b etween early March and late April. Trees that are ab out 8 inches or more in diameter are ideal for tapping. Larger trees can be tapped up to three times per season without adversely affecting the tree.

LL100–520 Industrial Pkwy. S., Aurora (at Yonge St.)

“To touch is to live”

After the sap is drained from the trees it is transported to a sugarhouse where it is b oiled down. As it simmers, water evaporates making the liquid thicker and sweeter. It is b oiled until it b ecomes the perfect density. It takes ab out 40 litres of sap to make ab out 1 litre of maple syrup. There are other products that can be made from the sap. Maple butter and taffy are boiled in an evaporator to the ideal temperature.

Maple syrup may be a rich, sweet treat, but it’s more than that. Because the syrup comes from a plant’s sap, it is a natural sweetener that is full of antioxidants. There are ab out 63 antioxidants in maple syrup. That puts it in the same category as berries, tomatoes, tea, red wine and flax seed. There are also a number of vitamins and minerals in the sticky sweetener as well. They include high levels of manganese and zinc; b oth are vital for a healthy heart. Calcium, potassium, and copper are also found in maple syrup making it a healthier alternative to other processed sweeteners. Health conscious b akers are already sold on the b enefits of maple syrup in various common b aked goods. When using maple syrup as an alternative to sugar, reduce the amount of liquids by ¼ cup. Because maple syrup is liquid it will alter the state of the product. If the recipe calls for 1 cup of white or brown sugar, try adding 2/3 cup of maple syrup instead.

If you are replacing honey or agave syrup, then the amount is equal. One tab lespoon of honey is equal to one tab lespoon of maple syrup. When b aking with maple syrup, it’s important to consider the temperature of the oven. If the recipe calls for the oven to b e at 350 degrees, reduce the temperature b y 25 degrees to avoid the syrup caramelizing or burning.

This Month IN HISTORY Celebrating Women Authors In Canadian history there have b een many women who have pushed against gender division. Some famous Canadian women have seen success in medicine and others in politics. Then there are those that have used the mighty pen. Lucy Maud Montgomery is a household name in Canada, not to mention in several other places around the world. The Canadian author is most remembered for her famous novel, ‘Anne of Green Gab les’. The novel was written in 1905 and after three years of searching for a publisher, it was printed in 1908 by a company in Boston, Massachusetts. The success of Anne led Montgomery to write a series of sequels. In addition, she wrote more than 500 short stories and a book of poetry. For her contributions to the fiel of literature, Montgomery was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire in 1935. She died in 1924, 50 years before one of her poems was published as a collection of short stories, ‘The Road to Yesterday.’ While, Lucy Maud Montgomery continued her sequels to Anne of Green Gables, a couple of provinces away, another great Canadian female author was b orn. Alice Munro’s parents didn’t know that their newborn would some day win the Nobel Prize for Literature. Alice was a gifted writer who b egan penning her stories when she was a teenager. She published her fi st story while she was a

O U R

student, but it was in 1968 when Munro reached critical acclaim for her writing. Her fi st collection of short stories entitled ‘Dance of the Happy Shades’ won Canada’s highest literary prize, the Governor General’s Award. She went on to win the prize twice more in 1978 and 1986. In 1971, Munro published her only novel, ‘Lives of Girls and Women’. She has written for decades and has continued to win awards for her work. She took home the Giller Prize twice, once for ‘The Love of a Good Woman’ in 1998 and the other for ‘Runaway’ in 2004. Perhaps her greatest reward came in 2013 when Munro was awarded the Nob el Prize in Literature for her lifetime of work. Alice Munro’s close friend and fellow writer Margaret Atwood once called her ‘quintessentially Canadian’. Atwood ought to know, she has also been the toast of Canadian literary circles during her career. Atwood’s fi st major work was a book of poetry entitled ‘The Circle Game’ pub lished in 1964. The b ook won the Governor General’s Award in 1966. Atwood continued her success as a writer with another Governor General’s Award in 1986 for ‘Handmaid’s Tale.’ She added the Booker Award for ‘The Blind Assassin’ in 2000. The list of Atwood’s awards and accomplishments are far too many to list. Her contributions to Canadian literature were honoured when she was named as an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1973 and a member of the Order of Ontario in 1990. Sources:

There is nothing like planning a well-deserved vacation far from home. You pack your bags, grab the kids and head to the airport. Have you remembered everything? When making your checklist for the trip, don’t forget ab out the kids. Not only do they need clothes, hats, and sunscreen, they also need activities to help them pass the hours you’ll spend on a plane.   Every hour on a long flight can seem like an eternity to a child. In-flight movies will only hold their attention for so long. What to do? Never fear, there are a few things you can do to help your child pass the flight time. Each passenger on a plane is allowed a carry-on. Pack a b ackpack with a few things for your child to enjoy on the flight. Before packing anything to carry onto the plane, consult the airline for any guidelines or changes regarding what is allowed in a carry-on and what is not. It’s a good idea to make sure that special pen you’ve packed isn’t considered questionable by security.  What do you pack? Family games. There are many travel size games available in stores. Some of your childhood favourites, which have stood the test of time, have b een shrunk to fit well in any small carry-on b ag. Just b e sure to watch you don’t leave b ehind any small pieces when you land. A deck of cards is handy to have. There are many card games that are fun for kids and adults alike.  Add some colour. Colouring books and crayons are always a hit with younger kids. Take a look on the Internet for any free printable activity sheets that you can bring. There are several sites that offer fun pictures and games. Don’t forget a pad of blank paper for other games like Xs and Os or Hangman.  Searching for fun. Word search books are available at most dollar stores and offer hours of fun. There are various levels of word searches so you can find some for the younger kids as well as the older ones. Lost in b ooks. Older kids may just appreciate b eing ab le to read one of their favourite novels while cruising through the clouds. Younger travelers may like to hear a story. Keep a journal. Take a small spiral noteb ook for each child to share his/her thoughts ab out the trip. He/she can start on the plane ride to the destination. Younger kids can draw a picture for each experience on the trip. Pack some ear b uds. Just ab out every flight offers movies and radio stations, b ut not all airlines give out headphones for free. There will come a time when your child will want to switch often to other activities. Finding music or cartoon channels suitab le for your young traveller may b e one of the b est ways to pass the time on a long flight. Your fellow passengers will also appreciate this.

Imagine your home, totally organized!

Affordable Designer Digs After watching a home décor show on television, it is very difficult to look around your own home and not wish you could afford a designer look. On the television shows, every room is decorated impeccab ly and each room flows nicely into the next. How do they do it? There are ways to create a designer look without losing your patience or breaking the bank. Keep it warm. Choose earthy neutral coloured paints to make a space that is relaxing. Warmer tones are inviting and create a room that has positive energy. Consult an interior designer or a professional at a paint store to investigate the possib le colours for your rooms. A designer look uses colours that link one room to the next without using the same colour. Ask for suggestions as to what similar tones would work for the look you want. Paint colour can add a warm feeling to any room, b ut it doesn’t give a lot of texture. Wallpaper is a great way to add variation to any space. There are types of wallpaper that are actually textured. Try papering one wall of a room to draw attention to the texture.

You may not b e ab le to change the structure of a room, b ut you can add to the architecture. Crown moulding is a wonderful way to add class to any room. There are various designs and sizes that can change how a space looks. Adding chair rails or other patterns to walls will also give your room a designer appeal. Throw rugs are always a great way to add a colour to a room. While the paint tones may carry from one room to the next, the accent rug will create a new space. The size of the rug can also help create the illusion that the room is larger or smaller than it really is. No two rooms should really b e alike and it is what is added after the paint that makes the difference. Accent pillows and throws can b e pricey depending upon where you shop. There are many retailers that offer cheaper versions of the same kind of look and flea markets can also save you money. Shop around before settling on any accents for your rooms. When you have found the deals you want, go for bolder colours and looks to add to your neutrally coloured rooms. If you are handy, try making your own throw pillows or other accents. Consult a fabric store for various types of fabric that would work in your room. Don’t forget to treat the windows. You can change the look of any room with drapery or b linds. If you are going for a sophisticated look, try using curtains. Hanging your drapery panels higher and wider than the dimensions of your windows will give the illusion of a larger window. It adds a feeling of grandeur to any space.

Every year when the last of the winter melts away, home owners start to think ab out the upcoming Spring weather. Time to do some pre-Spring cleaning inside the house. A little bit of de-cluttering is in order and then there’s the furnace. All winter long, warm air has been moving throughout the house bringing with it unwanted dust and debris from the duct work. That’s when the duct cleaners should be called. The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) says while duct cleaning can remove dust, pet hair and debris from your duct work; it does not improve the quality of air in your home b y reducing molds or allergens. It also does not reduce your energy costs, but like anything else in the home, cleaning is beneficial. It’s always advisab le to call on a duct cleaning company to suction out your ducts if you are moving into a new home. Coffee cups, cigarette butts, and sawdust that may have been left during construction need to be removed. These items can cause airflow issues.

When choosing a duct cleaning company make sure they are affiliated with a heating and air conditioning company. It also helps to find out what previous customers thought. Do a quick internet search for any references. Don’t b e alarmed if some duct companies cut into the sheet metal when cleaning. There are some who use special cameras to inspect the duct work. All holes should be covered when they are finished. Some companies will ask to spray your ducts with b iocide after they have b een cleaned. The reasoning is to get rid of any b acteria or mold. According to the CMHC there are no products that have b een registered under the Pest Control Products Act in Canada, which means it is unknown if they are safe for humans. The spray is not needed and in fact, may compromise the quality of indoor air. Don’t forget ab out the furnace. Furnace filters can help reduce dust particles in the home, b ut they do not eliminate them. The CMHC studied furnace filters and found that you get what you pay for. The cheaper filters do very little to clean the air. ESP filters provide the greatest amount of clean air and were the most cost efficient overall. Alternatively, you can try eliminating dust accumulation in your ductwork b y installing filters over each of your hot air supply registers. Check them monthly to see if they need replacing. Look for gaps b etween the wall opening and edge of the duct and seal with caulking. Have an HVAC technician clean your furnace annually and check for issues.

The Truth About Back Pain Don’t Even Think Of Taking Another Pain Pill Until You Read This

Do you have any of the following conditions... • • • • •

Lower Back Pain Muscle spasm or strains Bulging lumbar discs Numbness or soreness in your legs Shooting hip or thigh pain

Having back and leg pain can bring life to a standstill. You might not be able to play golf, work, or even sit in the car for a 30-minute drive. It’s almost impossible for anyone around you to understand how you feel. You can’t remember the last time you even had a restful night’s sleep.

My name is Dr. Joshua Nikkanen, owner of Crossroads Chiropractic. Over the past 15 years since we’ve opened the doors, I’ve seen hundreds of people with back pain leave the office pain-free. Because I’ve seen it with my own eyes, I strongly believe...

Back pain is NOT “just a part of life” and something you have to live with. Chiropractic has been around for over a hundred years, and has been used to help everyone from tiny babies to the elderly. Even top sports stars and entertainers… like Tom Brady, Sidney Crosby, Tony Robbins, Michael Jordan, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Wayne Gretzky receive chiropractic care. These professional athletes have the money to hire any kind of doctor they want, yet they choose to have a chiropractor on their team. Here’s what some of the top medical researchers had to say about chiropractic… “Manipulation [chiropractic adjustments], with or without exercise, improved symptoms more than medical care did after both 3 and 12 months.”– British Medical Journal

Is back pain keeping you from enjoying what you love to do?

You’ve got too many dreams left undone to let back pain slow you down. Too many special moments waiting to be experienced.

Life is too short to let pain slow you down. Pain is your body’s warning sign telling you something is wrong. Sure, you can numb the pain if you take enough Vicodin, Soma or some other pain pill. But if you mask the pain, it can prevent your back from healing – maybe even damage it further. Not to mention many of the pain medications available are quite addicting and can have devastating side effects.

Could This Be The Solution To Your Back Pain?

TMA-3_2017_print.indd 17

“Chiropractor’s manipulation of the spine was more helpful than any of the following: traction, massage, biofeedback, acupuncture, injection of steroids into the spine and back corsets, and ultrasound.” -- Stanley Bigos, MD, Professor of Orthopedic Surgery This means in just a matter of weeks you could be back on the golf course, enjoying your love life, or traveling again.

Have A Professional Evaluation of Your Back For Only $35 For 2 weeks only, I’m running a very special offer where you can find out how much this amazing treatment can help your back pain.

x-rays (if necessary), and a thorough analysis of your exam and x-ray findings so we can start mapping out your plan to being pain-free. You’ll get to see everything firsthand and find out if this amazing treatment will be your back pain solution, like it has been for so many other patients. The normal price for this type of evaluation including x-rays is $220, so you’re saving a considerable amount by taking me up on this offer. Chiropractic very well could be the answer you’ve been looking for. Call today and we can get started with your consultation, exam and x-rays as soon as there’s an opening in the schedule. Our office is called Crossroads Chiropractic and you can find us at 45 Eagle St. in Newmarket. (Just east of Yonge on the south side). Tell the receptionist you’d like to come in for the Back Pain And Sciatica Evaluation before March 17, 2017. I look forward to helping you get rid of your pain so you can start living a healthier, more joyful life.

Sincerely, Dr. Joshua Nikkanen, D.C. P.S. How many years can your body handle taking pills? Taking pain medications (even if they’re overthe-counter pills) is no way to live. Pills don’t “fix” anything, they just numb the pain. Finding the problem and fixing it has got to be your top priority! I may be able to help you live a normal, painfree life again. This offer expires March 17.

Call today 905-830-1146.

What does this offer include? Everything I normally do in my new patient evaluation for only $35. Just call before March 17 and here’s what you’ll get… An in-depth consultation about your health and well-being where I will listen…really listen…to the details of your case. A complete neuromuscular examination, full set of specialized

Find peace and comfort knowing your back is healed without drugs or surgery.

Senior BEAT Buccal Erosion Buccal Erosion is not a term that most people have heard before. If one was to take a guess, they would likely expect to find Buccal Erosion taught in a geography class. Unless you are in the field of dentistry, it’s not exactly common language. The term Buccal refers to the cheek side of a tooth. More precisely, it is the cheek-side of the molars or pre-molars. Erosion is the loss of hard dental tissue. Erosion is not the same as a cavity because it does not involve bacteria. The mouth is full of bacteria and certain types can attach themselves to the tooth’s enamel. If it is not removed, it multiplies and mixes with proteins present in the saliva. The comb ination creates plaque that adheres to teeth and causes cavities. Erosion is different because it involves acid and not plaque. Those who suffer from gastro-reflux will understand any issues with acid. In healthy individuals that do not suffer from any reflux issues, the stomach acid is returned to its rightful place. In those that suffer from reflux, the acid moves through the esophagus and into the mouth. It is the repeated and prolonged exposure to acid that causes the tooth enamel to break down. In the case of Buccal Erosion, the decay or ‘erosion’ happens on the cheek-side of the tooth.

It’s very difficult to tell if the tooth is weakening b y the constant acid attacks. There is no discoloration or softening of the tooth’s surface during the early stages of enamel erosion. Symptoms occur when the damage is more severe. When plaque is invading, the easiest solution is to brush and floss. Buccal Erosion is not as easy to avoid. Dentists have a few tips to help prevent any dental erosion. Reduce the level of acid in the mouth. That sounds easy enough, b ut for those with acid reflux, it is not that simple. A visit to the doctor is the first step in treating acid reflux. There are medications that can be effective in controlling the issue. There are a few other things that sufferers can do to help reduce acid. Quit smoking and eat smaller meals. Avoid lying down 2 to 3 hours after eating and if the issue is severe raise the pillow by 4 to 6 inches when sleeping.  Dentists will suggest that those with acid reflux avoid consuming foods that will trigger any issues such as carbonated and acidic drinks. Sugar-free antacid medications can help reduce the amount of acid in the mouth and will improve the flow of saliva. Those that have erosion issues can rinse the mouth with water and sodium bicarbonate, as well as a fluoride mouthwash. The sodium bicarbonate will neutralize the acid and the fluoride will help strengthen the enamel on the teeth. Avoid any ab rasive toothpaste and do not b rush teeth immediately after an acid issue.

Youth BEAT The Virtual World By Samantha Forani, Graduate of McMaster University A hot topic in the world of technology these days is focused around the idea of virtual reality and its many uses. While virtual reality has held a presence in the world since the mid20th century, the advancements that have b een made in the last five or so years have covered leaps and b ounds. Because of these advancements, virtual reality now has so many more uses than just video games, and is more accessible to people as well. Virtual reality can b e used for things like media, education and training, therapeutic practises, and more! Back in the 1950s, the idea of virtual reality was introduced in the world of cinema with the aim to encompass all the senses in an effective manner, thereby drawing the viewer into the onscreen activity. Many different machines were b uilt to attempt to achieve this result. Fast forward to the 21st century and you can now purchase headsets to wear for video games to simulate the experience that you are in fact in the game. These headsets can also come with sensor gloves which can detect the movement of your hands and show the result onscreen. Many find great comfort in this technology as it can be a form of escape from every day challenges and stress. Virtual reality can also b e very useful for training and education purposes. Virtual reality is used b y trainers and educators to provide the trainees with a virtual environment where they can learn new skills without real consequences if they fail. This has b ecome especially popular for training in the military for things like flight simulation and even parachute simulation. Virtual reality doesn’t end there. Therapy and exercise have b een incorporated into these environments and experiences. For seniors, it’s used as a way to help them relax and give those who can’t get out much a change of scenery from watching too much television. The main use of virtual reality in a therapeutic role is mainly exposure therapy, including phobia  treatments. In this treatment, participants are exposed to what they are afraid of in a safe and harm-free environment to help them overcome their phob ia. Virtual reality is also used to help encourage exercise. By immersing someone in an active gaming concept, it forces the individual to move and get their heart rate up, while being distracted from the exercise itself.

Virtual reality has many more b enefits, and many researchers say the advancements in the next five to ten years will accomplish many more amazing things. One thing to remember, however, is to stay connected with the real world as well. Virtual reality holds the ab ility to satisfy the social needs of many people, so much so that they will no longer feel the need to actually go out into society. There is nothing wrong with wanting a little escape now and again, but it is important to maintain a balance between reality and virtual reality.

Reading On the Go Ask any educator and he or she will tell you that reading to your child is one of the most b eneficial things you can do to help them develop. In fact, reading to children from the time they are toddlers will help them develop strong language skills and better communication skills. It’s important to make reading a part of your daily life with your child. How do you drag them away from their video games and keep their interest in something that doesn’t visually move? Try these methods: Hab its are hard to b reak. Make reading at b edtime a hab it. Start when your child is really young and make looking at picture b ooks a nightly ritual. Young children like routine and you will soon find that they won’t want to miss a night of reading. As your child gets older, take turns having them read to you. They will be proud to show you their skills. Words are everywhere. Don’t miss any opportunities to share new words with your children. When you are driving read b illb oards, road signs and even licence plates. Have your child play a game and see which words he or she can identify. You can play this game wherever you are: walking through the shopping mall or even down a street. Take your time to introduce new words and reinforce the ones they’ve heard over and over again.

Make a list and check it twice. We all create lists to remind us what tasks need to b e accomplished or what items need to b e b ought. Get your child to help you. When you are running low on certain food items and you are preparing to go to the grocery store, ask your child to help you make a list by gathering the almost empty items. Ask them to read out the letters of the words on the products and you can help them put together the sounds. Have them repeat the words and assist you with the spelling on your list. It may take some extra time, but the rewards are worth the effort. Singing. Kids love music. They love to dance to it and they usually love to sing along. Keep a selection of catchy songs in the car that you can play for your kids when you are driving. Singing helps children learn patterns of words, rhymes and rhythms. These skills are also linked to language and reading. You can also create your own silly songs. These can be lots of fun and are usually the most memorable. Lead by example. Whether it’s the newspaper, a magazine or a really good b ook, show your child how adults also read. Young children love to copy Mom and Dad. Praise them. Whether your child reads a word correctly or tries their best to sound out a phrase, always recognize their efforts. Encouragement will lead to engagement!

Rinse and sort beans. In a large Dutch oven or stockpot, cover beans with three times their volume of water (about 9 cups). Bring to a boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and stand for 1 hour. Drain, discarding liquid. Return soaked beans to pot along with three times their volume of fresh water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer while covered; about 30 to 45 minutes or until tender. Drain, reserving 1 cup (250 mL) cooking liquid. Place cooked beans and remaining ingredients into crock pot. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours. Find more delicious bean recipes online at ontariobeans.on.ca.

Add in the food coloring a few drops at a time. The darkness of the color will depend on how much coloring you add to the gak.

Mix the ingredients well until the gak is a shade of your liking.
