Ice cream outside on a –20°C winter day

Brrr.

It’s nutty and freezing cold — and we’re not talking about the ice cream.

It may be bitterly cold outside (about –20 C), but that’s not stopping a popular Regina ice cream shop from holding its “spring” opening.

Milky Way Ice Cream is seasonal and sells ice cream out of windows to people waiting outside. But owners decided today was the day to open their shutters.

“We’ve been here for 37 years and this is the earliest we have ever opened and probably the coldest,” said co-owner Carole Boldt.

Boldt said they checked the weather forecast a few weeks ago and this week was showing temperatures up to 7 C.

“So we just went ahead and did it. We pick a date and just do it,” Boldt said.

Putting the ‘colon’ back in ‘colonialism’…

Testing found that chicken in Subway subs can contain as little as 50% chicken DNA

Have a half-chicken sub (not half a chicken sub)…

If you’re one of many Canadians who opt for chicken sandwiches at your favourite fast food restaurant, you may find the results of a CBC Marketplace investigation into what’s in the meat a little hard to swallow.

A DNA analysis of the poultry in several popular grilled chicken sandwiches and wraps found at least one fast food restaurant isn’t serving up nearly as much of the key ingredient as people may think.

In the case of two popular Subway sandwiches, the chicken was found to contain only about half chicken DNA.

The majority of the remaining DNA? Soy

Three deer trash a gas station convenience store

Them punks! 😉

Bertrand Beaulieu was on his daily walk along Broadway Boulevard around 9:30 a.m. when three deer ran past him.

They went straight for a nearby Canadian Tire gas station — and straight to the door of the store, he said. One deer led the way.

“The door opens, so it went in,” Beaulieu said. “The second one, the same thing, and the third one the same thing.”

“They did not curve or anything. They went straight for the door.”
