She’s eighty-seven. They’ve been married for sixty-eight years. You would think that after sixty-eight years, that a fellow would have his wedding anniversary etched into his brain, but sadly, no. He’s forgotten it, again. In fact, it’s been about a dozen years since he last took her out to celebrate their anniversary. It’s kinda sad, really, to see someone who once looked forward to celebrating a special day in their lives, no longer giving an effort to even acknowledging that same special day. He no longer conspires with family and friends to throw parties. He’s stopped roaming the malls and gift shops months in advance in anticipation of presenting her with the perfect gift. There was a time that the local flower shop owner knew him by name and greeted him on a weekly basis. The new owner of the flower shop has never even met him. She thinks back to the earlier years, when they were younger, he would constantly woo her. Not just on their anniversary, either, he took her out all the time. But he really strived hard to ensure that anniversaries were especially lavish. He made sure she knew, without the slightest bit of doubt, that he would marry her all over again.

He’d invited everyone that was at their wedding, as well as new friends they’d made. He went big. Rented a hall, had a live band and even splurged for a fabulous meal. He ended the evening by surprising her with a minister that had them renew their marriage vows. He left no doubt in her mind that he’d marry her all over again. On their thirtieth anniversary, he took her on a three week cruise. They had fine dining every evening and shopped the little shops each day when the ship pulled into port. Two evenings before the cruise ended, he had the captain of the ship accommodate the renewing of their wedding vows. Again, he left no doubt in her mind that he’d marry her all over again. For their fiftieth anniversary, he took her to Disneyland. He also paid for their children and grandchildren to go on this trip with them. For an entire week, they acted like teenagers. They rode rides, ate cotton candy, and he even won her a large stuffed toy in the likeness of her favorite Disney character, Goofy. On their final evening, he had Mickey Mouse stand in as his best man, while Minnie Mouse stood in as her maid of honour as they again renewed their wedding vows. After fifty years, he ensured that there was still no doubt that he’d marry her all over again. But that’s all in the past. Distant memories that she now brings forward in her mind whenever she needs comforting. You see, about fourteen years ago, he started forgetting things. At first, it was where he left his car keys or the odd appointment. But as time went on, he’d struggle with names and places. After a while, her once confident groom, became confused. Sometimes, he would even panic as he couldn’t grasp where he was or how he came to be there. He was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. There is no cure. He can’t be left alone because he no longer has the capacity to look out for his own wellbeing. It was almost cruel, to steal from a man so many fond memories that he worked so hard to create. And it saddened her to know that he couldn’t call on those memories to comfort him like she could. At first, it bothered her, especially when he didn’t recognize her. But after years of showering his affections on her, she knew what she must do. After all, she’d gone through her wedding vows numerous times over the years, so now was the time to act on the vows pledged. On their sixtieth anniversary, she knew there would be no party. No surprise trips or lavish gifts would be given. You see, folks, not only did he not remember their anniversary that morning, he didn’t even know who she was. So, for the past eight anniversaries, she’s made sure that she’s there when he wakes up. She feeds him, takes him out, and showers him with her feminine charms. Her goal? To have him propose to her all over again… she’s never failed yet. Despite the loss of precious memories, the love still remains… he’d marry her all over again.

Do we have to disclose every little thing that MAY be a defect if we’re selling our home? In Canada the seller has a legal obligation to disclose only material latent defects, which are defects that satisfy ALL THREE of the following criteria: • The defect is not visible or discoverable through a reasonable inspection (a “latent defect”); A: • The defect is material (or fundamental) in that it may render the property dan-gerous or potentially dangerous to occupants or unfit for habitation. Examples include but are not limited to the following: an engineer has determined that the property is structurally unsound; the property is sitting on contaminated soil; there is toxic mould in the property; and • The defect is known to the seller. There is no legal obligation to disclose defects that meet only one or two of those criteria. Failing to disclose a material latent defect could result in claims by the buyer, for rescission of the contract; and damages against the seller and agents. In common law, due to the principle of “caveat emptor” (LET THE BUYER BEWARE) the seller is not required to disclose defects that are visible or discoverable through a reasonable inspection (a “patent defect”). However, the seller is not allowed to conceal patent defects with the intention of hiding them. This could be considered fraudulent. This is just a quick overview of the VERY COMPLEX ISSUE of disclosure of defects in the real estate transaction. A Real Estate Professional should bring clarity, and provide you with the appropriate advice. Of course, consulting your lawyer is always a good idea . - Gary and Crystal Adamo Send your Real Estate related questions to: [email protected] www.AdamoRealEstateGroup.com Here’s the Scoop - March 5, 2015 pg 3 Virtue of the Week th ow Gr Su st ain ing brought to you by: 403.948.4788 [email protected] ing id Gu St re ng th Core 520 Centre Ave East Airdrie, Alberta T4B 1P8 Modesty Modesty is having self-respect.

I would get into a fighter stance and jab with both of my fists saying one-two one-two. That all came to a rather abrupt end, when one day his teacher was handing something out to his class, and asked my son, “would you like one too?” A fighter was taking a terrific beating. When the bell rang, he staggered to his corner. His manager said, “Let him hit you with his left for awhile.

Global Warming KIDZONE Polar Bear Fact Sheet Polar bears live in the Arctic circle, the region that contains the Arctic Ocean. The polar bear is part of the animal family Ursidae. What sets them apart from many other bears is that they are skilled swimmers and able to survive in frigid climates. Every fall female polar bears build what is called a maternity den, a cave in which they hibernate adn birth their young. On average, a polar bear litter is about two cubs. Polar bear fur is translucent (another word for see-through) and as a result appears to be white. However, as they grow older their fur starts to yellow. Polar bears stay warm because of their blubber - a thick layer of fat. As they are carnivores (meat eaters) their diet consists primarily of seals. Polar bears are actually the largest land carnivore in the world. The most pressing threat to the polar bear population is global warming. Due to the melting of glaciers, much of the polar bear’s natural habitat is disappearing. There are under 25,000 polar bears left in the world. ll Occasions or A turns to SO F ifts I touch ecials on LD G Now g e ce Sp ! qu ythin Servi i n U ver ace E urn ail?

Life or death ~Dana Jones Before the age of three, my parents rushed me to the hospital and we found out I had a severe peanut allergy. I have gone 18 years with being extremely cautious of what touches my lips however it has never been a problem. I was always able to be around them, smell them, touch them and the worst I would get was a headache. It was not until last Thursday evening when I found out just how severe my allergy was. I was so excited to eat an imported chocolate; I took one bite and instantly knew I did not recognize the flavour. I swallowed the bite and looked at my mom in a panic. Instantly I could feel tingling in my throat and tongue. Luckily for me my mother was at the desk checking emails and my father was also in the room proof reading this week’s Scoop! My mother took me to the local grocery store where we talked to the pharmacist and purchased an epipen and some Benadryl just in case. I immediately took the Benadryl and could feel myself dozing off. We got home where my Celebrating 50 Years of Karate in the Calgary Area FAMILY KARATE Tuesdays 6:30 - 7:00pm: CHOPS Class (ages 4-6) 7:00 - 8:00pm: Regular Family Class (403) 232-0228 www.acku.org mom requested I stay upstairs so she can keep her eye on me, I collapsed onto the couch in exhaustion. This is when the excruciating stomach pain started. I sat up and excused myself to the bathroom where I was violently ill for a couple minutes straight. It was this moment when I looked at my mom and said “Can we go to the hospital?” We hopped into the van and began our journey. We made it about two blocks when my throat was nearly obstructed. I pointed to the epipen and my mother pulled over and administered the pen. Before we got onto the highway she asked me if I was feeling better. I replied with a confident yes. However the one thing I did not realize was I was so focused on the excruciating pain in my stomach that it did not cross my mind how hard it was to breathe because I could not FEEL it. We arrived at the hospital where we sat in emergency for a very short time and I was rushed into “the code room” the nurse acted very fast to get me hooked up to an IV and an epinephrine drip going.

The outcome was positive, here I am typing this out. After a few drug cocktails, the swelling of my tongue and throat went away and the pain in my stomach was bearable. We were then prescribed another epipen and some medicines to help keep the reaction away so I did not relapse. I can tell you one thing... When a doctor looks you in the eyes and says “you were close to dead” that echoes in your mind the next time you look at food. This was a very close call for me, and I want to state lessons I have learned. To the people out there with allergies, or to the parents and friends of someone with allergies, please keep in mind. An allergy is nothing to be embarrassed about. It is something you cannot control and it goes from a tingling throat to a death bed very fast. In my situation I dragged it out because of media, my entire life I have seen allergic reactions on TV and I figured it wasn’t like that therefore I was probably going to be fine.

If your body is telling you something is not right, GET HELP! It is better to go to the hospital and come out with a false alarm, then to wait it out and be near to dead when you arrive. Also, it is an allergy; please do not treat people with allergies like they are different. Part of the reason I never told people was because all through school people would make such a big deal about it and every time it was brought up I would get extremely embarrassed because it made me different and people would ask questions and I did not want to be looked at like I was “broken.” You’re not broken, and this is not your fault, you were born this way. Embrace it! Finally... the most important lesson I learned from this... CALL 911!!!!!!!!!! I survived this terrifying event, and I cannot be more grateful for my mother and her being able to set aside her panic to get the epipen into my system and to get me help right away. I also cannot thank the nurse at the hospital enough; she saved my life and acted beyond fast to do so. She also taught me very valuable lessons and sent me home with printed off information about my allergy. You do not realize how much life means until it is almost taken away from you.

Trophies Plus VDAY EMPOWERS WOMEN & GIRLS “When you bring consciousness to anything, things begin to shift.” ― Eve Ensler With Karen McDonald and her company, Three D Coaching in Airdrie, that is just what is happening. Sunday, February 22nd, was the second annual live theatre production of The Vagina Monologues, which was written by Eve Ensler. Eve is the Tony award winning playwrite, performer, activist and founder of VDAY. V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls. The stats say 1 in 4 females are abused, have been abused or are going to be abused. Stop the Silence …. Break the Chain …. When Miss Dani Polsom (a.k.a. Arizona’s Voice) and Helene Nicholson took the microphones to share their stories, the audience was very quiet, minus the sniffles you would hear. Dani is known in Airdrie for taking on the PC government and having changes made to the judicial system so that no charges against a child can be thrown from the court system. Being abused for over 7 years as a young girl and then having the whole case thrown from the system was devastating.

So one day I struck up a co nversation with the on ly other woman in the gym. Pointing to two men playing racquetball in a nearby court, I said to her, “There’s m y husband.” Then I adde d, “The thin one-not the fat one.” After a slightly uncom fortable silence she re plied, “And that’s my husband - the fat on e.” Bad Trip My co-worker at the tra vel agency needed to send a letter of apology to a customer whose trip was a com plete fiasco from start to finish. I remin ded her of a similar situation a year earlier and dug out the letter I’d written then. “All you have to do,” I told her, “is to change the details, the date, and the name.” She looked it over and smiled, then said, “We won’t even need to change the name.” 403.948.5744 │ 6-905 1ST AVE SW, AIRDRIE │ BOGEYSPUB.CA pg 18 Here’s the Scoop - March 5, 2015 Plaque Mounting Drymounting & Laminating Services Picture & Mirror Frame Repair Services Country Garden Crystals MLJ SERVICES S • Gemstone Lamps & Fountains • Handcrafted Teddy Bears • Crystals & Gems • Himilayan Salt • Singing Bowls • SongPods • Gemstone Jewelry • Books Open: Thurs - Mon 10am - 5pm Famous Framers & Gallery Ltd.

At the temple, my mother led me to a man who looked vaguely familiar. “Barbara, remember Rabbi Green?” she asked as she left me in his company. I frantically tried to place him, and suddenly it came to me. He was the kind man who, five years earlier, had officiated at my grandmother’s funeral. “It’s good to see you again, Rabbi,” I said. “Though I wish it weren’t always under such tragic circumstances.” The rabbi looked perplexed but uttered some words of consolation before he was called away. A few minutes later, I rejoined my mother. “Imagine,” she whispered, “after all this time, to run into the rabbi who performed your wedding!” FAIR, FRIENDLY AND AFFORDABLE AUTOMOTIVE REPAIR Clearing,Smudging & Blessing your space~Maureen Durant Thurs, Mar 26th - 6:30-9:30 ($55.00/gst) Angel Card Readings available with Charlene Money AGP/AAEP (Call for appointment) Like us on facebook Follow Hwy. 574 West of Crossfield.
