THE ANNUAL SANTA CLAUS PARADE - DOWNTOWN (Remember when it was Eaton's?)

MISSION CAPSULES: Parkland First Presbyterian Church in Spruce Grove, Alberta began as a Bible Study group in the mid 1990's and officially became a congregation in 1997. In 2005, with support from Presbyterians Sharing ... they called their first minister, Mark Chiang, a recent graduate from Knox College. The seeds from this church plant have grown! Parkland received a grant from Presbyterians Sharing ... to purchase land and a building in a rapidly growing area. They took possession April 1st, 2011 and are beginning renovations and looking forward to continued growth.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO CALL THESE......

"Stewardesses" is the longest word typed with only the left hand.

and "lollipop" is the longest word typed with your right hand.

No word in the English language rhymes with month, orange, silver or purple.

"Dreamt" is the only English word that ends in the letters "mt".

Our eyes are always the same size from birth, but our nose and ears never stop growing.

The sentence: "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" uses every letter of the alphabet. (which is why it was always on a typing test)

The words 'racecar', 'kayak' and 'level' are the same whether they are read left to right or right to left!

Have a good week - MB
