Dear Subscriber,
Seasons Greetings and Happy Holidays!
A very special Seasons Greetings and Happy Holidays from your friends at Disher Courier. While there have been many reasons for doom & gloom this past year, we remain optimistic at Disher Courier and have many reasons to be thankful for.

We look forward to and wish you all a Happy and Rejoicing Holiday season and a prosperous and healthy start to the next decade.
Best Regards,

Disher Courier's Employee of the YEAR!!!
Disher Logo 
Broker/Employee of the YEAR:
Mohamed Jama affectionally known as Mojo, is the epitome of what you would want in any employee. As a father of 5 and with lovely wife Hodan, they are indeed a very busy family, but yet he remains committed to Disher Courier. Hmmm, father of 5, very busy, lovely wife, sounds all too familiar.
Mojo handles a variety of duties for us. He is a dispatcher, a CSR, works on site at some client locations handling shipping duties and will even do the odd delivery whenever necessary. His versatility is a huge plus for us but may not be his greatest asset.
With his pride in his work and complete understanding of our clients needs, Mojo provides extraordinary customer service that is quite noticeable to anyone that deals with him. We love him and our clients adore him, but yet this still may not be his greatest asset.
Mojo's undaunted loyalty to me, my brother and our clients has been by far his most important and greatest asset displayed over the years. I swear, he would take a bullet for me if I asked him and it would be without any hesitation or complaints.
Without question, Mojo is one of our most valued employees and is a big part of the success and longevity of Disher Courier. I am proud to have him at my side and it is my pleasure to honour Mohamed Jama as the Employee/Broker of the Year for 2009. Thanks for everything Mojo!

BEER!  The Best Present for Men that Money Can Buy!

Have you ever had to try and buy a present for a man, but haven't had a clue of where to start? Well, here is a great idea: try beer! When you try to buy something like a shirt or tie, it might not fit, it might be the wrong color, and you risk the chance of them not liking it.


The great thing about the holidays is that it gives you a great excuse to treat the important people in your life to some exotic and interesting beers that might only be available during the Christmas season.


Picking out a great Christmas beer can be hard. However, there is a Christmas beer festival in Belgium, the beer capital of the world, every year. Here are some great suggestions for Christmas beer straight from Essen, Belgium, and the best Christmas beer connoisseurs in the world.


  1. The Anchor Steam Christmas Ale: Anchor brewing ( is home to a unique beer that they create a customized new recipe every Christmas season.
  2. Very Bad Elf Special Reserve Ale: ( This recipe is over 200 years old, and is an English Bitter with some added holiday spice and sweetness.
  3. Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale: This ale has taken home the Gold Medal from beer judging competitions. This hoppy beer is known for its aroma.
  4. Scrooge & Marley Hazelnut Christmas Alemm: ( Hazelnut is a unique flavor for beer that you won't find often outside the holidays, making this a special treat.
  5. Beer Man Sez: merry Christmas and a Hoppy New Beer: (  A light beer with heavy flavor!  

Canadian Winter Fun!

No matter where you are in Canada, you can enjoy great winter activities. From the city of Quebec on the East coast to the far West coast of the country, there is always going to be something for you to enjoy during what some consider to be the most spectacular season in the country.
· Visit Quebec!  The Ice Hotel: There is a hotel made completely out of ice built outside Quebec City every winter. A true winter wonder.  The Quebec Winter Festival: Enjoy all the best of winter in one convenient festival at the end of January. 
· Skate the Rideau: Skating and Canada just goes together in the country where Hockey is the most popular sport. Skate the longest rink in the entire world!
· Get out and Try Ice Fishing: Canada is home to almost endless lakes and resorts that offer some of the best ice fishing in the world for all kinds of fish; including pike, trout, and walleye.
· Go Snowshoeing or Dogsledding: Canada is home to the spectacular Canadian Rockies. Both in the mountains and out, you can find numerous companies offering both snowshoe and dogsledding expeditions. Experience winter the way Canadian's did 100 years ago.
· Go Skiing: Canada has some of the best skiing to be had anywhere, and tourists come from all over the world for their excitement in the Canadian powder. The Rockies are home to great skiing, but the best mountain in the country is just a few hours outside Vancouver at Whistler/Blackcomb.


Preventing Christmas Tree Fires 

What's a holiday season  without a wonderfully decorated tree? If your household includes a natural tree in its festivities, "Keep the tree watered." That's good advice and not just to create a fragrant indoor winter wonderland atmosphere. Well watered trees are not a problem. Dry and neglected trees are.
