Burnco's Party was a celebration of family business. Burnco Cement company was founded by Jim Burns the first. Burns Came to Albert in 1902 when Calgary had a population of 4398. Burns took a job for the railroad and worked in Revelstok. In 1912 after hearing news of the bombing construction business Burns moved to Calgary and started a cement and sandstone supplier company. Burns worked hard as both Calgary and Burns Company grew. In 1947 Jim Burns sold his company to his son Jim Burns the second.
Burns 2 was always on the look out for new and innovative technology that would increase the efficiency of his operations. In the 1950's Burns introduced the cement mixing truck to western Canada. The mixing truck simplified the job by cutting the hours required to perform a job as well as gave the company leverage to grow. Burns 2, passed the Burnco torch onto his son Jim Burns 3 in the mid 60's.
Burns 3 worked hard to expand Burnco into new territory while maintaining and promoting a strong family focused corporate culture. In 1993, Burns 3 sold Burnco to his son Scott Burns. Scott Burns leads Burnco with passion, commitment, and a strong will to maintain the family culture of Burnco. Today Burnco employs over 800 people and has diversified into four main operating units: Aggregate, Landscape Centers, Ready Mix, and Asphalt.

Karmin broke into the music scene and overwhelmed the blog-a-sphere when a you tube cover of Chris Browns "Look at me Now" rapped by Amy Heidman went viral. Heidmas vocal dexterity is impressive; she raps like a pro contrary to her image. Heidman, a Home girl from the parries (Nebraska), steezed out in an early Hollywood persona is the personification of the unexpected. Nick Noonan in contrast is the charismatic key board player with perfect pitch who manages to keep the key and rythem constant regardless of the energy fluctuations.

While muscle burns fat or our bodies are programed to be hyper efficient (it's how we survived the ice ages). The increased efficiency of muscle mass means that a greater proportion of the calories we consume are used for energy. As a body decreases in mass, the amount of calories needed to fuel it decrease in proportion. Just like how a massive suburban needs more gas the Ford Focus. Our bodies are programed to be "fuel efficient."
To offset the metabolic slow down we can do so by constantly challenging our bodies by challenging our mind through different routines. Our brain is the least fuel efficient organ in our body, and when it is engaged we tend to burn more calories.
Add challenge to your workout by mixing up your routine, and changing the order of your workout. If you usually finish with core start with it. Or add some exercise to your household chores. The act of exercising in a different setting alone creates a challenge.

Happy Monday, my head is a little sore from constant fretting. I am at a bit of loss emotionally- I'm unsure of where I stand at the moment and frustrated by the constant push in all directions from interested third parties. I want to live my life, happily, and on my own terms. I am responsible for my happiness; my happiness only. I understand that life itself is quite controversial. Life's controversies are irrelevant. How can life be lived or enjoyed when constantly in fear of overstepping the invisible and politically correct boundaries of modern society? Without risk there is no reward. At the end of the day I would rather be able to smile about my accomplishments and failures knowing I gave my all; opposed to laying awake with regret for not challenging the status quo.
Change is the air...Below are your Georgia Nicols Horoscopes for June 11-17 2012.
