Quote of the Day ... Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill. Henry David Thoreau
Discover Didsbury ... Disaster struck the town on New Year's Day in 1914. During the early hours of the morning, fire swept through the business section, destroying over 35 business premises. Damage was estimated at a quarter of a million dollars, of which only half was covered by insurance. The merchants set about rebuilding almost immediately, and before the end of the year, most of the stores had re-opened. The citizens of Didsbury faced the disastrous fire of 1914 with faith that Didsbury would be rebuilt bigger and better than before. It is this faith that has made Didsbury the thriving community that it is today.

Make it a daily challenge to find ways to move your body. Climb stairs if given a choice between that and escalators or elevators. Walk your dog; chase your kids; toss balls with friends, mow the lawn. Anything that moves your limbs is not only a fitness tool, it's a stress buster. Think 'move' in small increments of time. It doesn't have to be an hour in the gym or a 45-minute aerobic dance class or tai chi or kickboxing. But that's great when you're up to it. Meanwhile, move more. Thought for the day: Cha, Cha, Cha…. Then do it!
