The CML cast and crew were fascinated this morning during our segment on the haskap berry – a new crop being grown in our region! Not only is it fun to say, but haskap berries make delicious juice! Heidi can’t wait to try some of the Haskapa Jamu (which is the Japanese word for “jam”, by the way!).
This weekend is the Victoria Day long weekend, so we hope you can enjoy some rest and relaxation over the next three days. We’ll be back on Tuesday morning to help you get back into your regular work week! We’ll speak with an expert about ticks – how to identify them, avoid them, and remove them if you find one attached to your skin! Also, we’ll learn about some heart healthy choices we should be making in the grocery store…some of the options may surprise you! Plus, our Focus on Pets will address bite prevention – and how a new program is teaching kids about staying safe around dogs.
We also want to remind you that our very own Cyril Lunney is on the 2013 “Dream Team”, with a goal of raising $10,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society. Help him reach his fundraising target by pledging him online! Just go to http://convio.cancer.ca/goto/CyrilLunney!
Also: don’t forget to enter our “Surprise McCafe Break” contest – which could bring free coffee and treats to your office – hand-delivered by CML funnyman Cyril Lunney himself! Now that’s a great way to start off a workday! The next prize will be delivered at the beginning of June – it could be your office!
All that, plus the latest news and the most up-to-the-minute weather forecast from meteorologist Tina Simpkin – all starting at 7 AM!
