Quote of the Day ... The flavour is with you ... with you alone, and only you can make it as intoxicating as you please. Joseph Conrad
Discover Didsbury ... Agriculture and tourism are two of the most important industries in the area. With almost 2,000 hours annually, you can expect lots of sunshine in the Didsbury area. The annual average temperature ranges from a high of 10.3°C to a low of -2.6°C. The coldest month is January; warmest, July. Temperature ranges in summer (June to August) are from 15° C to 23° C (60° F to 73° F). In winter, (November to February): -8° C to -25° C (18° F to -13° F). Air funnelling through the Rockies also produces warm, dry chinook winds, prevalent in the Didsbury area, that can raise temperatures dramatically within hours.

Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until golden. In a large bowl, beat eggs until light. Combine the sugar, baking powder and 1/4 c flour so there will be no flour lumps.

Smoke detectors save lives. There should be at least one on each floor of your home, and more if possible, especially in children's rooms. Smoke detectors should be regularly tested and always have fresh batteries. It's one of the least expensive yet best investments you can make for your family.
