It does a body good

Borden Milk is not the first name that comes to mind when I think New York, but the company's roots are there. Mr. Borden invented Condensed Milk and accidentally discovered pasteuriaztion in the process. Louis Pastuer proved it was the heating of milk, not the evaporation, that made it healthier so he got the credit.

I see The Great Coal Mine ride, while supposedly short lived & not very popular, was still around three years later in '04.
