Barry and Hannah, an old married couple, are sitting on the couch watching TV. On the show they were speaking about how to prepare in case of death, etc. “Honey,� says Barry, turning to his wife with a serious expression, “I want you to promise me, that if there ever comes a time that I am dependent on just machines and bottled fluid, that you will make sure to put an end to it.� “No problem, hun,� said Hannah, and she promptly got up, turned off the TV, and poured his beer down the drain.

Opaque Bowl

Q: I have a large opaque bowl that has been identified as a piece of Paden City Glass. I can’t find this type of glass mentioned in any of my reference books. Can you help me? -- Dot, Hammond, La. A: The glass company was established in Paden City, W.Va., sometime during the early decades of the past century. During the 1920s, the company expanded its production to include colored wares in crystal and opaque glass in a variety of patterns and styles. The Paden Glass Company built a reputation for its high standards of homemade wares until about 1950, when under new management, the plant was automated. Paden Glass

Q: With “Games of Thrones” starting back up, it got me wondering what Sean Bean is up to. Can you tell me what he’ll be in next? -- Alicia W., via email A: Beginning in August, Sean stars in the new TNT action-thriller series “Legends,” which is set to Sean Bean premiere Wednesday, Aug. 20, at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The story centers on Sean’s character, Martin Odum, who plays a deep-undercover FBI agent who may be losing his grip on reality. Martin has the ability to transform himself into a completely different person for each job, but he begins to question his own identity when a mysterious stranger suggests that he isn’t the man he believes himself to be. The series comes from “Homeland” executive producers Howard Gordon and Alexander Cary, and “Fringe” co-executive producer David Wilcox, and co-stars Ali Carter, Morris Chestnut, Amber Valletta, Steve Harris and Tina Majorino.

later closed due to financial problems. One of the best sources is “Glass A to Z” by David Shotwell and published by Krause Books. ••• Q: I have a series of maps, mostly from the 1870s and 1880s, and all documenting regions in North and South America. I would like to have them appraised. -- Brett, Weston, Conn. A: Kevom James Brown, owner of Geographicus Fine Antique Maps, appraises maps for about $50 each. He does not purchase maps that he appraises, as he sees that practice as a clear conflict of interest. Contact for Brown and Geographicus is 201 W. 105th Street, New York, NY 10025; http://www.geographicus.com; and 646-320-8650. ••• Q: I have a planter that features a poodle design. It was made by Hull Pottery and given to me as a gift. -- Susan, Mason City, Iowa A: I found your planter referenced in “Warman’s Hull Pottery: Identification and Price Guide” by David Doyle and published by Krause Books. According to Doyle, your planter is valued in the $20 to $40 range and was a “novelty” product of Hull. ••• Q: I have a copy of “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens published in 1935 by Dodd, Mead & Company. Can you tell me how much it is worth? -- Lillian, Marion, Ind. A: I contacted several used book dealers about your novel, and they seem to agree it is probably worth about $35. The value of a book is determined by several factors including condition, rarity and edition. © 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

••• Q: I was happy to read in your column that Kiss will be inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame. Will they be touring to support their induction? -- Gary T., Cleveland A: Kiss will indeed be embarking on a joint project this summer, co-headlining with hard-rock superstars Def Leppard in a 42-city summer stadium tour, which will run from June 23 to Aug. 31. Def Leppard lead singer Joe Elliott said that he and Kiss bassist Gene Simmons first discussed the idea of the two bands touring together when they played some South American dates two years ago as part of a rock-androll all-stars tour. “It’s finally happened, which is fantastic,” Joe said. Also, a dollar from each ticket sold on the tour will go to the Wounded Warrior Project and other military nonprofits. (Go to livenation.com for ticket info.) ••• Q: Starz canceled “Magic City” just as season two ended. What a disappointment. The show was never given much publicity, but it was wonderfully done. I love it and miss it so much, and so do my friends. Is there any chance of “Magic City” going to another cable network? -- Dale P., Fort Worth, Texas A: While I never say never (see “Scrubs” and “Cougar Town” for examples), there hasn’t been much talk

Answers on page 11

about the series continuing. Set in 1959 in Miami shortly after the Cuban Revolution, “Magic City” centered on the story of Ike Evans, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who owned Miami’s most glamorous hotel, the Miramar Playa. I do have slightly good news for you, though: The entire 16-epsiode “Magic City” series will be released by Starz and Anchor Bay in Blu-ray and DVD formats on May 13. ••• Q: Can you tell me if “Unforgettable” will be back? -- Tom V., The Villages, Fla. A: The CBS drama series starring Poppy Montgomery as Carrie Wells, a woman with hyperthymesia -- a rare medical condition that gives her the ability to visually remember everything -- will return with a 13-episode third season beginning in June.

Backyard Beekeeper Has Neighbor Buzzing

Q: My next-door neighbor informed me yesterday that he intends to set up a beehive in his yard. Is he even allowed to do this in a populated area? We both have half-acre lots, and he says the hive likely will be located in a far corner, but I see nuisance and even disaster ahead. What if the bees swarm? What if they sting a child and, God forbid, that child is allergic? Should I contact the city about this? -- Claire S., via e-mail A: Believe it or not, beekeeping can and does take place in suburban areas -- and even in the middle of the city. I understand your concern, however. Take heart in the fact that your neighbor came over to tell you about the planned hive before it arrived. That gives you the opportunity to ask some questions about the hive, the type of bees and so on. I encourage you to keep it polite. For now, just ask questions and listen to your neighbor. There’s a very good chance that he has been researching beekeeping for some time and that he even knows the municipal ordinances regarding the activity. If he already has some homesteading activities going on, such as keeping a few chickens, and those activities haven’t been a nuisance to you or others, it’s likely that the beehive will make little to no difference in the neighborhood -- other than the flowers in your garden perhaps blooming bigger and better than ever before, thanks to nature’s best pollinators living nearby. After talking to your neighbor, do some research of your own. MAAREC (Mid-Atlantic Apicultural Research & Extension Consortium) has a good pamphlet available to download as a PDF about suburban beekeeping, and a number of websites are available under that search term. There are many ways for beekeepers to reduce the possibility of nuisance and stings in the neighborhood. You also can contact your municipality about whether beekeeping is allowed. If it is specifically permitted, there are usually rules about how big the hive can be and whether it needs to be registered with the state’s agricultural office. Above all, give it a chance. The dwindling bee population worldwide is greatly concerning researchers, so homesteaders’ beekeeping can be a small but helpful contribution toward solving the problem. And, being on friendly terms with a successful beekeeper can have the positive side effect of receiving an occasional, and perhaps steady, gift of honey. HOME TIP: Interested in beekeeping but don’t have a lot of money or space? Look up local beekeeping groups online or consider starting one at a community garden or other open space. Send your questions or home tips to ask@thisisahammer.com.

Publisher's Corner by Sean Athey

Hello everyone, welcome to this issue of Tidbits of the Lake Area. Hope you enjoy! As we all know, the first day of Spring came and went on March 20th and it seems that Mother Nature didn't get the memo. There is ice and snow outdoors now, but I do think we have some better temps on the way... keep your fingers crossed.

cousin leaned back and made it... then... If you know anything about canoes, you know the ends are tapered up, so when my dad went to lean back there was no where to go. His only option was to put both arms out and grab the tree and let the canoe go... good plan, except when he pulled out of the canoe it tipped and started taking on water, lots of water, fast. As for me, I had just sat back up when everything went upside down in an instant. I was completely submerged and scrambled to grab the canoe and get my head above water. My cousin later told me I had the look of shear terror on my face, which was an accurate description of what I was feeling on the inside, too! Of course, we had to dump the canoe at the furthest point away from the house, so it was a cold walk back, but we made it. My two uncles hunted down the canoe and brought it back. I think we only lost one paddle. Not bad for a little adventure to get the blood pumping.

Spring was always a neat time when I was growing up. We had a gravel driveway with quite a slope to it. It was perfect for building dams and reservoirs when the snows would melt in the Spring. Not so perfect for staying in place... my Dad has fought a good battle to put the gravel back where it is supposed to be for many years after each washout with Thanks for reading!

Also running through the property is the Whetstone River, and Sean Athey, publisher I'll tell you what, having a river in your backyard as a kid was the best. It was an adventure to just Sean@LakeAreaTidbits.com go walking the river on a Sunday afternoon.... until Mom called. Now, I don't mean "called" on the cellular device or texted us... "calling" meant taking the biggest spoon she could find and banging it on the metal support post on the porch. That ringing would echo through the river valley and our heads would pop up like little deer and we would yell "Coming!"... no satellite, towers or devices, but it sure was a down to earth communication system. I don't think a cell phone would have survived my childhood, anyway. As I grew older Spring brought on bigger adventures. One thing we all enjoyed when the river was up and running was a canoe trip. The family would take turns setting out from the bridge on the west side of Big Stone and end up winding around several miles and getting picked up at the bridge on the east side of town... that is, if everything goes well. One particular Spring, my Dad, cousin and I set off down river with me in front, Dad in back and Brock in the middle. It was late Sping and the ice was all gone, but the river was up and churning pretty good, so we were making good time, until the tree. This certain tree had fallen across the entire river and left about two feet of clearance underneath. It was coming up fast, so I leaned back and made it under, my

Sgroppino

Sgroppino is a classic after-dinner beverage from the Veneto region in Northern Italy. It’s usually made by whipping up lemon sorbet and Prosecco; a splash of vodka is sometimes added. Here we’ve left the sorbet intact as a light and refreshing float -- a luscious and low-cal end to dinner.

PetBits is brought to you this week by K9 Classics - Dog Obedience Training - Watertown

Evenly scoop sorbet into 6 wineglasses or dessert bowls. Pour 1/3 cup Prosecco into each glass; garnish with mint. Serve immediately. Serves 6.
