In 1846, Nancy Johnson invented the first handcranked ice cream freezer. On May 30, 1848, William Young of Baltimore registered her invention with the Patent Office, naming it the Johnson Patent Ice-Cream Freezer. Come along with Tidbits as we enjoy a few scoops! JUST DESSERTS • In 1851, Baltimore milk dealer Jacob Fussell sat down to figure out what he could do with all his surplus cream. Ice cream was his solution, and soon he was making more money dealing in ice cream than in milk. By 1856 he had become the nation’s first ice cream wholesaler. • Because he owned dairy herds, whereas other ice cream manufacturers had to buy their supply of cream, Fussell was able to undercut their prices, selling it for 25 cents a quart while competitors were selling it for 60 cents a quart. Even poor people could afford Fussell’s ice cream. When the local confectioner’s association insisted that he raise his price to an outrageous $1.25 per quart, he refused – and was nearly lynched by rival ice cream makers as a result. • He moved his factory to Boston. Soon his factories were popping up across the country, and he was later bought out by Borden. More than anyone else, Fussell brought ice cream to the masses. ICE CREAM INVENTIONS • Robert Green was selling soda drinks made of cream, syrup, and carbonated water at a festival in 1874 in Philadelphia. When he ran out of cream, he substituted ice cream instead. Green averaged $6 a

Evanston, Illinois has the distinction of being the first town to pass a law against the “Sunday Soda Menace” which outlawed drinking soda on Sundays. According to the story, the local drug store, now unable to sell any of their popular ice cream sodas on Sunday, invented a new soda-free dish: ice cream, covered in syrup, and topped with a cherry. Because this new dish was available only on soda-less Sundays, they called it the ice cream sundae. • The ice cream cone is thought to have originated at the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904. Ernest Hamwi was a concessionaire selling a wafer-like pastry baked on a waffle iron, which sold poorly because of the heat. Next to his stand was an ice cream vendor selling scoops in small cardboard cups. When he ran out of containers, Hamwi came to the rescue by rolling his wafers into a cornucopia and putting a scoop of ice cream in its mouth. • Some ice cream novelties that never made it were ice cream in an aerosol can and the cone with a sidepocket for an extra scoop built in. The ice cream telegram flopped. It was a replica of a Western Union telegram, delivered to the home. IT’S A FACT It was over ice cream in Robinson’s Drugstore in Dayton, Tennessee on May 5, 1923, that a young teacher named John Scopes was persuaded to test the state’s ban on teaching ‘theories that deny the divine creation of man,’ the famed Scopes Monkey Trial.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your capacity for forgiveness is at an all-time high this week. Habitual schedules seem unsatisfactory and you may be feeling restless. A lack of money could cramp your style. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Remain skeptical of the advice you receive. You may be able to voice some convictions of your own this week, but arguing over the beliefs held by others could stir up trouble. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You could binge when buying in bulk. You could be convinced that you’re handling your money in a reasonable manner this week, but may overspend because you go to extremes. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Develop insights about business matters by catching up on a backlog of reading. Others may be able to sway your opinions this week with an appeal to your fair and generous nature. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): It might be a very good idea to review the lyrics of the Logical Song to prepare for the week ahead. People may make promises they can’t keep or come to decisions based on scanty facts. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your enthusiasms are contagious and likely to set off sparks of friendliness with interesting new people this week. Adventures that provide a break from routine are in the stars. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): When something goes wrong, there are those who insist that it’s someone else’s fault, and refuse to take the blame. A lack of responsibility or extravagance could irk you in the upcoming week. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You could be possessed by a wild urge to do something entirely foolhardy as a spotlight on finances causes friction. Keeping up with the Joneses’ will only cause problems this week. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your inner wisdom receives an opportunity to grow and flourish in the week ahead. Your belief system may alter as you learn to test your viewpoints. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Thoughts are like bubble gum; you chew them until they lose their flavor and toss them aside. Refine and re-evaluate your views, and remain honest with yourself in the coming week. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Finances may be the focus of your drive and initiative this week, as you weigh the pros and cons of different ways to handle your budget. Take the lead from those you trust. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A creative idea of yours is worthy of effort. Maintain your serenity, even if others are unreliable or if cash seems to slip through your fingers this week. Kindness and sympathy are assets.

to establish herself as a major film personality.

“Pola Negri: Hollywood’s First Femme Fatale” by Mariusz Kotowski Reviewed by Larry Cox One of the first truly great movie stars of the early American film industry was a former ballerina who overcame an impoverished childhood in Poland and a bout with tuberculosis to become legendary and celebrated throughout the world. Pola Negri was born in 1897 in Vistula Land in presentday Poland. Later, after being accepted into the Imperial Ballet of Warsaw, she was diagnosed with tuberculosis, which ended her dancing career. She next turned to acting and worked in Europe with such heavy hitters as Ernst Lubitsch and Max Reinhardt. She arrived in the United States in 1922 and made her first American film, “Bella Donna.” Its success led to a lucrative contract at Paramount, where she began

Negri rented a large, Tudorstyle mansion and began exhibiting her flair for the exotic and eccentric. For example, she often was seen around Los Angeles in her chauffeurdriven limo, dressed in all white. As she later recalled, “I bought a limousine of pure white, trimmed with ivory and upholstered in white velvet. My chauffeur wore all-white uniforms on sunny days and all black when it rained. I used a white-fur lap rug and was usually seen with two white Russian wolf hounds.” She occasionally was seen strutting her stuff on the streets of Beverly Hills draped in either ermine or mink with her pet tiger in tow. After Rudolph Valentino went to Paris to finalize his divorce with Natacha Rambova, Negri and the star became an item. His sudden death in 1926 ended that relationship, and she became even more intriguing as the original “woman in black.” This crisply written, meticulously researched biography documents one of Hollywood’s most fascinating film stars, and also explores the link between Hollywood and European cinema during the interwar years. 306-693-4605 or 1-888-544-2438 15-Chester Road, Moose Jaw Like Us On Facebook

Ticket sales are now underway for the MJ Humane Society’s final Fall Lottery! Wiggles the black Lab is the true embodiment of the mission at the Moose Jaw Humane Society. This special dog spent almost a year at the Shelter, waiting and hoping for a forever family, all the while winning the hearts of everyone she met. The only problem was while many people took her home, none could handle her once she got there. Wiggles came to the Shelter with major separation anxiety issues. When left alone, she ate doors, jumped fences, leaped out windows and tore apart kennels in her efforts to escape. All of this made us love her even more. All of that love made us try that much harder to find the right family for her. After almost a year’s wait, this special dog found a family that could provide her with the lifestyle that keeps her happy and safe and oh-so-very loved! It was worth the wait, and now Wiggles is living the good life. Stories like this are made possible by the support of the community and by animal lovers who support all of our fundraising efforts. The Moose Jaw Humane Society’s new 4 Paws Lottery fundraiser is your latest opportunity to win cash AND support animals in need, the best possible combination for animal-lovers. Tickets for the MJHS 4 Paws Lottery are now on sale. Regular supporters can expect to receive their lottery forms in the mail very soon, and the tickets can also be purchased right at the shelter and over the phone (306-692-1517). You can even go to our website to download the form at www.mjhs. ca and mail it in. Our wonderful team of volunteers will also be selling tickets on Saturday June 14 and June 28 at the Town & Country Mall. Traditionally, the shelter has run two annual lotteries, one in June and one in October, but this year the two lottos will be combined with even more prizes. We will be awarding a cash prize every single day in July! Daily cash draws will be made throughout the month of July for $100, as well as special draws of $500 on July 12th, July 19th & July 26. This year’s Early Bird Draw will be for $1000, to be drawn on July 5th, so get your tickets early for the biggest chance to win! Tickets are 1 for $20, 3 for $30, 10 for $50 or 25 for $100. For even more chances to win, there is also a 50/50 add-on option; a single ticket for $10, 3 for $25, 10 for $50, or 25 for $100, please note that these tickets must be purchased in conjunction with a regular lottery ticket.

COLD WAR • During the Korean War, General Lewis Puller announced that it was ridiculous to pamper marines with ice cream and demanded that the Armed Forces serve troops beer and whiskey instead. The Women’s Christian Temperance Union howled, enlisted men howled, and the Pentagon announced that ice cream would be served in mess lines three times a week. • During World War II, escort destroyers were rewarded with 20 gallons of ice cream for every pilot they pulled out of the water. • When the aircraft carrier Lexington was damaged and the order was given to abandon ship, someone mentioned that the ship was carrying a lot of ice cream. Sailors ate their fill before leaping into the sea. • British airmen would put ice cream mixtures in cans in the rear compartments, where the plane’s vibration combined with the freezing temperatures at high altitudes would yield especially delicious ice cream. FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH In 1934 the movie Kid Millions starring Eddie Cantor was released. Moviegoers were treated to a color talking picture featuring an ice cream fantasy as a finale. The scene occurred in an ice cream factory where chorus girls carried chocolate and strawberries to a huge freezer while other scantily clad girls skated across the freezer and coasted around on large slabs of Neapolitan. Cantor meanwhile was treating hundreds of ragged children to an ice cream banquet, and a reformed gangster shot cherries into each kid’s dish from a machine gun. ICE CREAM RIOT In 1952 on the Yale campus, the police ordered a portable ice cream cart off the campus. The result was a riot involving 1,500 students that was quelled with hoses and clubs. The owner of the pushcart was ultimately allowed to return to the campus, and a victory rally was held in his honor. IRV & BURT • Irv’s father owned an ice cream store in Tacoma, Washington, and Irv often helped out. After World War II, he decided to open his own ice cream shop in Glendale, California. Meanwhile, Irv’s sister married a man named Burt, who was in the men’s clothing business. Irv convinced his brother-in-law that selling ice cream was a lot more fun than selling suits. So Burt opened an ice cream parlor in Pasadena. • Together they worked to invent new flavors, until they had one flavor for every day of the month. By 1948 Irv owned five ice cream shops and Burt owned three. By this time they realized they were paying less and less attention to each individual store, so they decided to combine their efforts and sell the shops to the store managers in a franchising operation. What should they name their franchise? • They decided to use their last names, so Irv and Burt flipped a coin to see whose name would be first. By 1949 they had 43 stores; there were more than 100 running by 1960; and in 1967 when they sold out to United Fruit Company for $12 million, they had around 500. Burt died six months later, but Irv remained involved in the company until he retired in 1978. By the time Irv died in 2008, what started with a single ice cream parlor in California was now the world’s largest chain of ice cream stores with 5,500 outlets worldwide. What were Burt and Irv’s last names? Answer at the bottom of the page. FAVORITE FLAVORS Vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry are the three favorite flavors, in order. Vanilla accounts for 51% of all ice cream sold, chocolate 13.5%, and strawberry 6%. Among sherbets, orange captures 40% of the market. Together there are over 1,000 flavors of ice cream. Answer: Burt Baskin & Irv Robbins.

• John McLaughlin was born 1865 in Ontario and graduated from the University of Toronto in 1885 with degrees in Pharmacy and Chemistry. When he married a redheaded New York woman named Maud, he used her dowry to open a carbonated water plant in Toronto, selling his product to local drugstores. Soda jerks mixed the carbonated water with fruit juices and flavorings to create sodas that they sold on the spot. • McLaughlin began tinkering with his own soda drink recipes and created McLaughlin Belfast Style Ginger Ale. The problem was that the only place you could drink his product was at a drug store soda fountain. He realized that what he needed was a way that customers could take his product home with them, or carry it with them on outings. Soon he developed a method of mass bottling his product. Now people could drink sodas at ball parks and beaches, and one of his main marketing methods was to hand out free sample bottles to people who gathered at such places. • At Maud’s suggestion, McLaughlin refined

his ginger ale recipe by lightening the dark color and improving the sharp taste of his first ginger ale. He named the new product Canada Dry Pale Ginger Ale, and Maud suggested the slogan, “The Champagne of Ginger Ales.” He patented the recipe in 1905. • When referring to a drink, the word “dry” means “not sweet” (as in dry wine). In the early 20th century, most ginger ales were dark, syrupy, and sweet, and Canada Dry broke that mold. • With the business growing, he decided to import his product to the United States. As early as 1907, Canada Dry was being shipped to U. S. grocery wholesalers in Buffalo, Brooklyn, and Detroit. • In 1914, John McLaughlin died at the age of 48. His brothers took over the corporation in spite of the fact that John had wanted his eldest son to take over. John’s brothers also cut Maud out of the company, leaving her penniless and dependent upon the charity of her in-laws. Had she been able to retain the 25,000 shares in the company she was entitled to, she would have become one of Canada’s richest citizens. • In 1922, the two brothers opened a manufacturing plant in New York which turned out 25,000 bottles of ginger ale

per day. However, by 1923, demand far exceeded supply. The McLaughlin brothers needed to either expand or sell out. They elected to sell out. Ontario-born Parry Saylor and his partner James Mathes bought the company for $1 million U.S. dollars. • Because the U.S. had recently increased import tariffs on ginger ale by 50%, Saylor and Mathes saved a lot of money by moving the company to the U.S. Because they were spending a fortune on railroad freight fees, they instigated licensing agreements so others could manufacture the product locally. They opened factories in Chicago and L.A. But they really hit pay dirt when Prohibition was enacted: Canada Dry was the perfect mixer for harsh homemade hooch. • Profits for Canada Dry in 1923 were $98,000 and for 1925 they were $1,240,000, enough to pay for the million dollar purchase price. Within three years, it was the bestselling ginger ale in the world. By 1930, the corporation was worth $30 million. Prohibition Officers were so impressed by its sudden popularity that they analyzed it for alcoholic content. • Today Canada Dry retains a firm hold in a niche market. In 2008 it was acquired by the Texas-based Dr Pepper Snapple Group.

What’s all the BUZZ in Energy Drinks? In today’s high-demand, fast-paced world energy drinks have become a trendy beverage of choice for many people. In North America alone Energy Drinks sales are a $5.2 Billion a year industry! Is this just a harmless fad, or are there real health concerns with consuming these products?


Caffeine: Caffeine one of the main ingredients in


Energy drinks. The average amount of caffeine in 250 ml can is 80 mg. Health Canada says most healthy adults can safely consume up to 400 mg/ daily.

Sugar: Sugar like the caffeine will give you more energy and alertness however in the form of calories. The average amount of sugar per can varies from 20-60 mg. However large amounts of sugar will cause high amounts of energy followed by a “crash”. Taurine: Taurine is a natural occurring compound found in your body. It is claimed that taurine will make you more alert when consumed, however there is no evidence to support this theory. STARTING THIS WEEK: “SON OF GOD”: This dramatization of the life of Jesus (portrayed by Diogo Morgado) makes extensive use of material from the hugely successful miniseries “The Bible,” produced by Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, but also includes sequences that weren’t televised. Former “Touched by an Angel” star Downey appears as Mary in the production, which includes a Spanish-language version on its home video release. DVD extras: “making-of ” documentaries; photo booklet. *** (PG-13: AS, V) (Also on Blu-ray) “LONE SURVIVOR”: Written for the screen and directed by Peter Berg, this true and intense drama draws excellent work from Mark Wahlberg (as Marcus Luttrell, whose book inspired the film), Taylor Kitsch (of TV’s Berg-produced “Friday Night Lights”), Ben Foster and Emile Hirsch as Navy SEALs engaged in direct battle with the Taliban. It’s the result of an operation that goes awry and leaves the U.S. military men reliant on help from locals ... and the title indicates how the situation turned out. Eric Bana and Jerry Ferrara (“Entourage”) also appear. DVD extras: two “making-of ” documentaries. *** (R: AS, P, GV) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand) “ROBOCOP”: The iconic, still-effective fantasy-adventure gets an acceptable update that retains many elements of the original while upping the star wattage. Joel Kinnaman assumes the role of Murphy, the Detroit cop so extensively wounded in the line of duty, he becomes the object of an experiment that uses robotics to develop a new kind of police officer. Michael Keaton plays the corporate executive who assigns a scientist (Gary Oldman) to carry out the transformation. Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish and Jackie Earle Haley also are in the cast. *** (PG-13: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand) “TRUE BLOOD: THE COMPLETE SIXTH SEASON”: With its seventh and final round soon to begin, this penultimate season of the popular HBO vampire drama finds the blood cravers targeted by Louisiana’s governor (Arliss Howard). That surely makes things difficult anew for Bill (Stephen Moyer), just after he thought he’d emerged from peril in better shape, while Sookie and Jason (Anna Paquin, Ryan Kwanten) try to brace themselves for a very difficult meeting. Sam Trammell and Carrie Preston are among other continuing cast members, while newcomers also include Rutger Hauer and Jurnee Smollett-Bell. DVD extras: audio commentaries by cast and crew; interviews with series writers; previews and recaps. *** (Not rated: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray) “BREAKING BAD: THE COMPLETE SERIES”: Originally issued on Blu-ray last fall, the clearly edgy, widely acclaimed AMC series created by Vince Gilligan gets a reissue in that format while also making its debut on DVD. Bryan Cranston claimed several Emmy Awards during his run as chemistry teacher-turned-meth manufacturer-seller Walter White, who certainly has scores to settle before the final fadeout. Cast members also include fellow Emmy recipients Aaron Paul and Anna Gunn, as well as Betsy Brandt, Dean Norris and Jonathan Banks. DVD extras: four “making-of ” documentaries; audio commentaries by cast and crew; deleted and extended scenes; outtakes; alternate series ending; “Inside Breaking Bad” episodes. **** (Not rated: AS, P, V) “THE GLADES: THE COMPLETE FOURTH SEASON”: Be forewarned ... there’s a cliffhanger ending here that’s apparently destined never to be resolved, since A&E Network didn’t renew the mystery series. With that said, there’s fun in watching police detective Jim Longworth (Matt Passmore) and nurse Callie Cargill (Kiele Sanchez) try to navigate their new engagement around numerous professional and personal crises. Fans of the show haven’t been happy, and with good reason, that the outcome of the final scene will be left hanging. *** (Not rated: AS, P, V)

Medicinal Herbs: Many energy drinks contain herbs like Ginseng and Gingko Biloba. It is suggested that these herds help improve performance, however once again there is no evidence to support this.

Are Energy Drink Safe?

Energy Drinks are a safe beverage to consume when the precautions are taken and the product warnings are abided by. •Children under 18 years of age should not consume them. •Women who are pregnant or who are breastfeeding should not consume them. •Don’t drink more than the recommended limit (usually 500mls). •Do not mix with alcohol •Talk to you doctor before using energy drinks if you are taking medications or supplements • Avoid drinking energy drinks prior or during exercise. Caffiene Content • Red Bull– 80 mg per 8.3 oz • Monster– 160mg per 16 oz • Rockstar– 160mg per 16 0z • Tab – 95 mg per 10.5 oz • Wired – 505 mg per 24 oz In comparison • Coffee– up to 200 mg per 12 oz • Tea– 80 mg per 12 oz • Pepsi– 38mg per 12 oz • Coca-Cola– 34.5 mg per 12 oz • Mountain Dew– 54mg per 12 oz

When it’s time to prep a dinner meal this week, get your kids stacking the green, white and red layers of fresh basil, mozzarella and tomato. If they say their culinary creation reminds them of winter’s Christmas colors, guide them to a photo of the tricolor green, white and red Italian flag. This funto-make version using a surprise ingredient, couscous, is a tasty spring and summertime twist on Italy’s traditional caprese salad. I’ve always believed in using the right tools for the right job. In this recipe, it’s four recycled aluminum cans. Once you’ve removed labels and both ends of four 7-8 ounce clean cans (I used 7-ounce diced green chilies cans and made sure there were no sharp edges), gather the following ingredients to create a fancylooking presentation.

STACKED CAPRESE SALAD WITH COUSCOUS Four aluminum 7-8 ounce cans with both ends removed

Parsley for garnish (optional) Balsamic vinegar

! Y MM


1. Spray with nonstick spray or lightly wipe oil in the interior of the four cans. Set each can on end on a salad plate. 2. Trim the tomato and cheese slices to fit the interior of a can, then stack the individual portions in layers inside the can as follows: a tomato slice, 2 tablespoons of couscous mixture and a cheese slice. Repeat. 3. Cover with plastic wrap and press down on the stack gently with a jar or can slightly smaller than the opening of the can. 4. Remove wrap and slowly lift the can to reveal the layered salad. To serve, garnish with a fresh basil leaf or sprig of parsley. Drizzle balsamic vinegar to taste.

I Want Chocolate Ice Cream A man approaches an ice cream van and asks, “I’d like two scoops of chocolate ice cream, please.” The girl behind the counter replied, “I’m very sorry, sir, but our delivery didn’t come this morning. We’re out of chocolate.” “In that case,” the man continued, “I’ll have two scoops of chocolate ice cream.” “You don’t understand, sir,” the girl says. “We have no chocolate.”

“Then just give me some chocolate,” he insists. Getting angrier by the second, the girl asked, “Sir, will you spell ‘van,’ as in ‘vanilla?’” The man spells, “V A N.” “Now spell ‘straw,’ as in ‘strawberry.’” “OK. S-T-R-A-W.” “Now,” the girl asked, “spell ‘stink,’ as in chocolate.” The man hesitates, then, confused, replied, “There is no stink in chocolate.” “That’s what I’ve been trying to tell you!” she screams.

• In the 1890s Caleb Bradham opened a drugstore and soda fountain in North Carolina. He wanted to invent a drink that would soothe an upset stomach without using narcotics. Using kola nut, vanilla, and extracts, he whipped up a new concoction. He named it after a stomach enzyme that aids digestion, because he believed his drink would aid digestion just as the enzyme does. • The company expanded rapidly, but a major ingredient was sugar, and when sugar prices fluctuated during World War I, Bradham declared bankruptcy. Another entrepreneur bought the drink company from the bank, but declared bankruptcy during the Depression. • In 1931 Charles Guth bought the company for $10,500 out of sheer spite. He owned a chain of over 100 candy stores with soda fountains and was angry that Coca-Cola wouldn’t give him a price break on the enormous volumes of soda he sold. He wanted to give them some competition, but he too ran into financial problems and even offered to sell out to Coca-Cola, a deal they refused. • Then he began selling the drink in a 12 ounce bottle for a nickel, whereas Coka-Cola came

in a 6-ounce bottle for a nickel. Customers flocked to his product. Today the firm does $39 billion in business annually and has 185,000 employees. What’s the name of the drink? (Bonus points for naming the enzyme it was named after.) IT’S A FACT During Prohibition, the Women’s Christian Temperance union attacked soft drinks as being potentially addictive. This inspired an editor of a Kansas newspaper to write a satire in which he worried about “men returning home sodden with Coca-Cola” and men “caught in the grip of the Coca-Cola habit.” Answer: Pepsi, and pepsin. ANOTHER NEW SODA POP • Charles Grigg went to work for an advertising agency in St. Louis where one of his clients was a soft drink company. He became intrigued by the soft drink business and went to work for the manufacturer, tinkering with recipes and inventing a successful new soft drink called Whistle (as in ‘wet your’). After a falling-out with his boss, he went to work for a different soft drink maker and invented an orange-flavored soft drink called Howdy. Howdy was popular but it could not compete with Orange

Crush which had the market sewn up tight. • Eventually Charles started his own firm, and in 1929 came out with a lemon-lime flavored soda called Bib-Label Lithiated Lemon-Lime Soda. ‘Bib-Label’ was for the bottle’s label which was hung around the neck of the bottle like a bib, and ‘lithiated’ was for the lithium citrate (a mood enhancing substance) that the drink contained in trace amounts. • Charles had the bad luck to release his product mere weeks before the stock market crash of 1929. During the Great Depression that followed, he had a lot stacked against him: his product had a difficult name, it was priced higher than the competition, and he had a lot of competition. The one thing he could change was the name, so he changed it to something extremely simple. By the 1940s his re-named soft drink was the third best selling soda in the world. What’s the new name? (Answer at bottom of page) IT’S A FACT • A failed cola company in Ohio named their new pop Norka, advertising, “Remember— Norka spelled backwards is Akron.” Answer: 7-Up.
