(Pretty Much) July 2013
Fireworks, Picnics and Canada Day
As you may have heard, your BHCA goes all out for the community on Canada Day. It starts with a relaxed family “Picnic in the Park” in the park behind the church on Ogilvie Road. 2130 Radford is the official address of the picnic. We’ll have games for the kids, the splash pad is rarin’ to go and we’ll put on music, hot dogs and freezies. Anytime from 10 am to 2 pm, mosey on over.
From dusk until dark we’ll be setting up our HUGE fireworks show at Loyola Park, on Loyola, while you and the kids arrive with lawn chairs and blankets. We’ll have a bouncy castle, some tunes and face-painting. Members of the BHCA Executive will be walking around soliciting donations during the set-up. We recommend a donation comparable to parking fees downtown. If you would like to have your own fireworks launched after the show, please inform us at the music table before 9:15. Around 9:30 pm, the show launches. Safety limits will be clearly marked, and enforced by volunteers.

The Food Lab: 7 Old Wives’ Tales About Cooking Steak That Need To Go AwayFrom: http://www.seriouseats.com/2013/06/the-food-lab-7-old-wives-tales-about-cooking-steak.html
“I dread the summer. I truly do. It’s not that I don’t like the weather (who doesn’t like sunshine in the day and breezy decks in the evening?). It’s not the hordes of school kids roaming the streets with abandon. And it’s certainly not the food—extra sweet corn, ripe tomatoes, and every meal cooked on the grill? Yes please!
No. It’s one thing that seems to happen every single year about the same time: the hordes of “X tips for perfect steak!” articles that crowd the internet, packed with misinformation, old wives’ tales, and outdated knowledge that, in some cases, has been outright disproven for decades.
Whenever I see these articles, I get the irrepressible, uncontrollable urge to scream at people Wait! Stop! This is all wrong! I know your steak will probably still come out just fine if you follow these tips, and perhaps these myths have been perpetuated for as long as they have, because people are happy with “good enough” and don’t really need “perfect” or “better,” and if it ain’t broke don’t fix it, right? But for chrissake how can someone sit idly by and watch the spreading of misinformationamirite?!”
