  • Tidbits Of Trivia By V.B. Darrington

    The First Fact and Our Motto There is much pleasure to be gained from

    useless knowledge. Bertrand Russell

    Quick Bits The Atlantic and Pacific Oceans are more

    than 2, 500 miles apart in most of the United States. But in some places in Central America, the worlds two biggest oceans are separated by fewer than 50 miles of land. Panama is the narrowest part of Central America, but there are no mountains in Panama that offer view of both oceans. However, a peak in the neighboring country of Costa Rica, the 11, 325 foot Mount Izaru, is the only point in the world from which you can see both oceans.

    It sounds strange to say that rain keeps the earth dry, but thats exactly what it does. The process that generates precipitation gathers moisture from the air and concentrates it in clouds, which later deposit the water in the form of rains. If this moisture didnt condense to form rain, then the atmosphere would be unbearably humid. The entire earth would be heavily covered with moisture, and life, as we know it probably couldnt exist. Its Against the Law

    Its against the law in California to set a trap for a mouse unless you have a hunting license.

    An assortment of colorful peppers and sweet red onions is served on a bed of tender arugula and drizzled with a tangy balsamic vinaigrette. To keep last-minute work to a minimum and free up your grill for the main course, you can grill peppers and onions ahead. When ready to serve, bring refrigerated vegetables to room temperature before arranging on arugula.

    6 red peppers or a combination of red, yellow and orange peppers2 medium red onions, each cut into 6 wedges4 tablespoons olive oil3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar1 teaspoon Dijon mustard1/2 teaspoon salt1/2 teaspoon sugar1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper2 bunches (about 8 ounces) arugula

    1. Cut each pepper lengthwise in half; discard stems and seeds. With hand, flatten each pepper half. In bowl, toss onion wedges with 1 tablespoon oil.2. Place peppers, skin side down, with onion wedges on grill over medium heat. Cook peppers and onions 10 to 15 minutes, until pepper skins are blistered and onions are tender and golden, turning onions over once halfway through grilling. Transfer onions to plate. Wrap peppers in large sheet of foil and allow them to steam at room temperature 15 minutes or until cool enough to handle.3. Remove peppers from foil. Peel off and discard skins. Cut peppers into 1/2-inch-wide slices. Transfer to plate with onions.4. In small bowl, with wire whisk, mix remaining 3 tablespoons oil with remaining ingredients except arugula until dressing is blended.5.

  • Tidbits of Dallas County Page 4

    To Your Good Health By Paul G. Donohue, M.D.

    DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My husband had blood work for a cholesterol study. It included something called lipoprotein (a), something we never heard of. It was over the normal value. I called my doctor, but he was on vacation, so I left word for the covering doctor. A phone call came from his secretary, who said: He didnt say anything, so I guess its OK. I want answers. Will you explain this to me? -- F.

    ANSWER: Lipoprotein (a), spoken as lipoprotein little a, is another cholesterol fraction that is an independent risk for artery clogging and heart attacks. Its different from LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) and HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol).

    Frankly, at the present, doctors find it hard to counsel patients about lipoprotein (a), so most dont order it.Now emphasis is placed on lowering LDL cholesterol (your husbands value is very good) and raising HDL cholesterol (again your husbands was very good). I will trade places with him if he wishes, and Ill take his lipoprotein (a) reading to boot.

    I can tell you what lowers lipoprotein (a). Niacin does. There is no proof, however, that lowering it lowers the risk of a heart attack. Daily exercise of 30 minutes also brings it

    Cholesterol Tests Keep Multiplying

    In Gary, Indiana, its against the law to take a streetcar or go to a theater within four hours after eating garlic.

    Did you ever hear of American Flag or Licorice Lulu? Theyre the names of flavors of chewing gum that were made and sold more than 100 years ago. These gums were made in Maine by two brothers named Curtis. Back in 1848, they began making gum from the sap of spruce trees. It was Americas first chewing gum, and it was packaged under the name of State of Main Pure Spruce Gum.

    The fighting fish of Siam make their egg nest out of spit and bubbles.

    Christopher Columbus is a famous name in U.S. history. But did you ever hear of Bartholomew Columbus? Chris and Bart were brothers. They planned the ocean voyage together, and both traveled about Europe trying to raise money for the trip. But then, Chris got the money he needed and sailed without his brother. No one knows why Bart got left behind. But if he hadnt, Americans might have a holiday called Columbuss Day.

    A baby sea lion cannot swim from birth. It has to be taught by its mother.

    Ants sometimes get drunk. This happens when ants drink nectar from the bodies of certain beetles. Then, undrunk ants carry a drunken ant to some water and toss it in. The drunken ant sobers up quickly after his dunking.

    Guinea pigs did not originate in Guinea, nor are they members of the pig family.

    There are full-grown sharks that measure only five inches long.

    down, if the doctor approves of exercise for a person. As does losing weight if that applies. A low-fat diet high in vegetables, fruits and grains is another way of reducing lipoprotein (a). From his other cholesterol values, Id say he must be doing some of this anyway. All of this, except for niacin, is the much-preached recipe for heart health regardless of lipoprotein (a).Until told otherwise, put lipoprotein (a) on a back burner. The booklet on cholesterol explains this topic that is talked about to excess. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue -- No. 201W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipients printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery.***DEAR DR. DONOHUE: None of my 21 grandchildren has had their tonsils out. All of my seven children did. Is this no longer done? I wish doctors would make up their minds about these things. -- B.B.

    ANSWER: When your children were young, it was almost standard practice to remove tonsils as a way to protect against strep throat. We now know this isnt necessary, and we now have antibiotics to treat strep throat. Children who have repeated strep throat infections still have their tonsils removed, but the operation is no longer done for prevention.***DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I work out at home on an exercise bike and a treadmill. On days my knees are bothering me, I dont do either. One doctor suggests that I cease the exercise bike but use the treadmill. The other says just the opposite. They both cant be right. Who is? -- R.G.

    ANSWER: You can answer this one for yourself. Which hurts your knees? I find that bike pedaling is harder on my knees. Others find running a bigger source of pain.

    If somebody asked me if I wanted to reinvent myself, I think Id reply tongue-in-cheek that there are parts of me that could use a tune-up, but overall, no. But after reading Marjory Zoet Banksons new book, Creative Aging: Rethinking Retirement and Non-Retirement in a Changing World (SkyLight Paths Publishing, $16.99), Im reconsidering my answer.

    Creative Aging was written for those of us who are thinking about what it means to grow older and retire ... and what comes next.

    The book is about life transitions -- experiencing endings before we can make new beginnings, and then experiencing a period of trying things out before we take on our newly reinvented lives.

    Who Are We Once We Retire?

    This kind of planning and thinking can be crucial, especially for those of us who have felt ourselves defined by career. If were no longer an (accountant/factory worker/teacher), then what are we? What will we do with the rest of our years? Will they be meaningful?

    Creative Aging walks us through the steps of getting there: letting go of vocational identity, feeling stuck and resistant to change, drawing energy from the past, forming a new vision for the future, moving toward it, taking risks and finding a new purpose.

    Full of stories of those who have already walked this path, Creative Aging doesnt so much take us by the hand as it opens doors to thinking about what is right for each of us.

    The stories are eye-openers as they tell what we can expect and how to spot opportunities for making changes. As the book says, At this stage of life, we dont have to wait for someone else to approve.

    If youre sensing even the slightest questions about Whats next? take a look at Creative Aging.

    When frosting a cake, put a dollop of frosting in the middle of the serving plate, and then in-vert your cake onto it. It will keep the cake from sliding around while you frost.

    I try to keep a clean plastic no-spill cup in the car for each of my kids at all times. They dont always remember to bring a drink, and we can fill them at water fountains when we un-expectedly visit the park or other fun places. -- K.R. in Nevada

    I purchased a small misting spray bottle from the travel-items section of my local drugstore.

  • Tidbits of Dallas County Page 6 A huge diamond of tremendous carat

    weight was taken to the finest cutter in Amsterdam. The entire value of the stone depended almost completely on the first cut. Needless to say, the diamond cutter felt the tremendous pressure of his task and spent a full month examining the stone to determine its natural cleavage. Finally, the moment of truth arrived, and the diamond cutter raised his mallet to crack the massive diamond. But when his cleaver hit the stone, the cleaver itself broke into two pieces. After collecting his wits again, the master cutter struck the stone again, and was rewarded when the stone split perfectly. He was so relieved he fainted on the floor.

    Bulldogging is a popular rodeo event. In it, a cowboy on horseback chases after a steer. He then jumps from his horse, grabs the steer by the horns and tries to wrestle the steer to the ground. But where did bulldogging get its name? One story claims that a famous cowboy Bill Pickett invented bulldogging. History says that Pickett used to grab his steer by the horns, and then he would bite the upper lip of the animal, letting go with his hands just like a bulldog.

    The famed Pony Express was an abject financial failure. It was in existence for only two years.

    The Making Home Affordable Programs are good news for potentially millions of homeowners. Maybe your expenses have increased, in any case its best to be pro-active.

    HARP is aimed at homeowners of properties that are currently worth less than what is due on the note, known as being underwater.Because of the home-price declines of a still-failing housing market, more and more people are experienc-ing the loss of equity in their homes. While most un-

    derwater homeowners continue to make payments and are current, its been reported that when homeowners face losses of equity of more than 25 percent, defaults and foreclosures increase. Foreclosures are up to 4.6 percent of all homeowners now.Some merely walk away from the house when all hope of regaining equity is lost. Without solid loan-to-value numbers, a homeowner cant refinance. Without good appraisal numbers -- because neighborhood values have fallen -- there is no refinance. Homeowners cant sell their homes, either, if theyll still owe more than they can get for the house.In many cases, the underwater homeowner is not at fault. Unemployment can cause whole neighborhoods to fall, as owners sell at low prices one step ahead of foreclosure, bringing down values.To qualify for the refinance program: You must be current on your mortgage. Only Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac loans can partici-

    pate. The lender must approve and agree to rewrite the balance of the loan and take at least 10 percent off the principal. After the refinance, the mortgage amount cannot exceed 115 percent of the value of the home. The new mortgage payments must be less than 31 percent of your income. The property must be your primary home. If you have a second mortgage, the first and second will be combined. Your FICO credit score must be 500 or above.If you have an interest-only loan or an interest rate that will rise, a HARP refinance can help stabilize your payments by giving you a fixed rate. If you have a high interest-rate loan, a HARP refinance can help reduce your payments. For more information, check the governments Mak-ing Home Affordable site at makinghomeaffordable.gov.

    PETBITS SPONSORED BY:

    DEAR PAWS CORNER: It never seems to amaze me. Im talking about the people who do not get their critters fixed. I know some very educated people whose pets have litter after litter. What are they thinking? Where and when will it end?It is never right or a good thing to allow your critters to have a litter. Never! Take a look at our overcrowded animal shelters. It just breaks my heart at the number of animals they have to put down. These educated people tell me, Oh, I find homes for all my babies. Thats beside the point! If you dont have babies to give away for free, then people will have to adopt a critter from the shelter that is fixed and wont reproduce any more unwanted and unloved animals. Get all your pets fixed!If you cant afford to get them fixed, find a program that will help you pay for it or take them to your local shelter. Please! -- Dee in Palmyra, N.Y.

    DEAR DEE: Thank you for making an important point so forcefully. Litters of puppies and kittens are very cute, but they add to an already huge population of dogs and cats, most of which are never adopted and end up in shelters, where theyre often euthanized. Unless you are an AKC-certified, professional breeder, you have no business allowing your pets to procreate. I have heard many excuses from pet owners as to why they dont spay or neuter. Oh, it would be cruel. Oh, my Maximilian would lose his confident personality if he were neutered. And of course, My pet is well-behaved and indoors most of the time, so shell never get pregnant.Dont let yourself be swayed by these fantasies. Learn the facts about spaying and neutering.

    On June 22, 1775, Congress issues $2 million in bills of credit. The bills, known at the time as Continen-tals, notably lacked the then de rigueur rendering of the British king. Instead, some of the notes featured likenesses of Revolutionary soldiers and the inscription The United Colonies.

    On June 27, 1844, Joseph Smith, the founder and leader of the Mormon religion, is murdered when an anti-Mormon mob breaks into a jail where he is being held in Carthage, Ill. Smith claimed in 1823 that he had been visited by a Christian angel named Moroni, who spoke to him of an ancient Hebrew text that had been lost for 1,500 years.

    On June 23, 1902, Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft first registers Mercedes as a brand name, feeling that the non-German name might sell better in France. The famous Mercedes symbol, a three-point star, was regis-tered as a trademark in 1909.

    On June 26, 1948, U.S. and British pilots begin airlift-ing food and supplies to Berlin after the city is isolated by a Soviet Union blockade. By July 15, an average of 2,500 tons of supplies was being flown into the city every day.

    On June 25, 1950, armed forces from communist North Korea smash into South Korea, setting off the Korean War. The United States quickly sprang to the defense of South Korea. More than 55,000 American troops were killed in the three-year conflict.

    On June 24, 1975, an Eastern Airlines jet crashes near John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City, killing 115 people. The Boeing 727 was brought down by wind shear during severe thunderstorms with heavy winds and rain. Seven passengers and two flight attendants survived the fiery crash.

    On June 21, 1982, John W. Hinckley, Jr., who shot President Ronald Reagan, was found not guilty of at-tempted murder by reason of insanity. In the trial, Hinckleys defense attorneys argued that their client had a pathological obsession with the 1976 film Taxi Driver, in which there is an attempt to assassinate a fictional senator.

    It was American author, playwright, screenwriter and political activist Gore Vidal who made the following sage observation: Any American who is prepared to run for president should automatically, by definition, be disqualified from ever doing so.

    The next time you get a chance, you might want to check the pressure of your cars tires; if theyre not inflated to the correct pressure, youre contributing to the $9 million in fuel that is wasted due to improper tire pressure, according to the Department of Energy.

    If you ever go to Rome, one of the sights that must be seen is the Trevi Fountain, the elaborate Baroque installment that was

    completed in 1762. According to legend, anyone who throws a coin in the fountain is ensured a return visit to Rome. This is, evidently, a popular tradition; every night approximately $3,500 is retrieved from the fountain. The money is used to fund a supermarket for the citys needy.

    In this era of ubiquitous technology and instant communication through e-mail and text message, the average American still receives 1.5 personal letters each week. Of course, you have to weigh that against the 10.8 pieces of junk mail that arrive on a weekly basis. Due to the rising prices of the materials used to mint coins, it now costs 2 cents to manufacture every penny and 9 cents to make a nickel.

    In 2006, an Illinois police officer was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol. This probably would not be noteworthy, except that it was the same police officer who received an award for making the most DUI arrests in his county.

    The workers at a bakery in Connecticut used to play a game at lunchtime. They would play catch with a tin pie plate from the local bakery. The game became so popular that the idea was picked up commercially. Soon the disks were copied in plastic and embossed with the name of the pie company, Frisbee.

    The kangaroo got its name from Captain James Cook. When the English explorer was in Australia, he asked a native what the name of the strange, jumping animals was. The native replied, Kangaroo. In his language it meant, I dont know.

    Most baseball players dont like being booed by people watching them play. But John Boog Powell of the Baltimore Orioles said he didnt mind being booed. After all, said Powell, a boo is just three quarters of a Boog.

    You probably know that a group of bees is called a swarm, and a group of cattle is called a herd. But did you know that a group of elks is called a gang? And did you know that several leopards are known as a leap? Other animal group names include a band of gorillas, a clowder (or a clutter) of cats, a knot of toads, a gaggle of geese and a pride of lions.
