By Samantha Weaver • It was Austrian philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein who made the following sage observation: "If people never did silly things, nothing intelligent would ever get done." • Much like farmers of today, ancient Egyptians who worked the land worried about a variety of animals that could destroy their crops: locusts, sparrows, mice and worms. Unlike the typical Midwesterner of today, though, they also had to worry about hippopotamuses.

• The fierce Apache warrior we know today as Geronimo was not originally so named. His given name was Goyahkla, which means "one who yawns." • We've all seen pictures of African women carrying heavy loads -- up to 75 pounds in some cases -- balanced securely on their heads. But you might not realize that these women can carry more, relative to body size, more efficiently than pack mules. • As the end of the school year approaches, this might be a good time to remember that it was Americans who came up with the idea of summer camp. • The name of the country of Iraq is derived from the Arabic word meaning "origin." • If you've ever watched the closing credits of a film (and are not yourself involved in the movie industry), you might be wondering about some of the titles you've seen, so here's a quick rundown: The gaffer is the chief electrician on the project; the key grip puts together and takes down sets, as well as lighting and laying the track on which the cameras move; and the best boy assists the gaffer and the key grip. © 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

278,288 relief missions to the city, resulting in the delivery of 2,326,406 tons of supplies.

• On May 9, 1671, Thomas Blood, an Irish adventurer better known as "Captain Blood," is captured attempting to steal the Crown Jewels from Charles II of England in the Tower of London. Charles was so impressed with Blood's audacity that, far from punishing him, he made him a member of his court with an annual pension. • On May 14, 1914, Washington Senators pitcher Walter "Big Train" Johnson throws his 54th consecutive scoreless inning, against the St. Louis Browns in Sportsman Park III. Johnson broke a 53inning record set in 1910 by Jack Coombs of the Philadelphia Athletics.

• On May 15, 1963, Gordon Cooper is launched into space aboard Faith 7 on the longest American space mission to date. Cooper completed 22 orbits of the Earth and spent 34 hours in space. • On May 13, 1981, Pope John Paul II is shot and wounded at St. Peter's Square in Rome. Turkish terrorist Mehmet Ali Agca, an escaped fugitive already convicted of a previous murder, fired several shots at the religious leader. Agca was immediately captured. After a two-day trial, he was sentenced to life in prison. © 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

• On May 11, 1934, a massive dust storm sends 350 million tons of topsoil flying from across the parched Great Plains as far east as New York, Boston and Atlanta. Even ships some 300 miles offshore saw dust collect on their decks. • On May 12, 1949, an early crisis of the Cold War comes to an end when the Soviet Union lifts its 11month blockade against West Berlin. The blockade had been broken by a massive U.S.-British airlift of ••• DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I hope you will discuss lactose intolerance. I am 60 and just developed it. -- J.B.

Bowling With an Aneurysm DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am a 73-year-old woman. I have an abdominal aortic aneurysm. I have sonograms regularly. I am in a bowling league. I bowl each week. My bowling ball weighs 10 pounds. Should I bowl? My last ultrasound shows that the aneurysm is 3.8 cm. -- F.S. ANSWER: Your doctor is the only one who can answer your question with authority. He or she knows all the circumstances of your health. However, I can tell you that most people with an aneurysm of your size are encouraged to be active. Lifting heavy weights is discouraged. A 10pound bowling ball isn’t considered a heavy weight. The size of an aneurysm determines its risk of breaking apart and bleeding profusely. Aneurysms smaller than 4 cm are not in danger of suddenly rupturing. When an aneurysm reaches 5 to 5.5 cm, then surgical repair is recommended. You are quite a distance away from the danger zone. For readers: Aneurysms are bulges of an artery wall, and are weak spots.

ANSWER: Lactose is milk sugar. In our digestive tracts is an enzyme -- lactase -- that digests milk sugar. People with too little of the lactase enzyme have trouble when they drink or eat dairy products. Milk sugar doesn’t break down. The undigested sugar leads to gas production, stomach cramps and diarrhea. Medical tests can confirm the dearth of the lactase enzyme. Standard treatment of lactose intolerance (also called lactase deficiency) is avoidance of dairy products. Most cheeses have little lactose, so they can be eaten. Yogurt made from live cultures is usually tolerated. Furthermore, many dairy products can be pretreated with lactase, and people with the intolerance are not bothered by such products. The lactase enzyme comes in pill and liquid forms. It can be added to milk or taken by mouth before eating or drinking dairy products. •••

Nice Guys Finish ... Fourth TALLADEGA, Ala. -- Know the cartoon where the sheep dog and the wolf -- they're named Ralph E. Wolf and Sam Sheepdog if you're keeping a scorecard at home -- fight all day and then exchange pleasantries as they punch their time cards at the end of each day? A bit of that dynamic comes into play at Talladega Superspeedway these days, only in reverse. Instead of parting on good terms, Restrictor Plate Racing 7.0 is a program in which everyone plays nice -- or at least attempts to do so -- until the very end. But the seeming rivals do work together. Some NASCAR fans yearn for the days of rugged individualists and cold-blooded decisions. They want their favorite driver to look out for No. 1. Or, perhaps, No. 88. In the latest case, many Dale Earnhardt Jr. fans -- we're talking tens of thousands -tramped to the parking lots and motored home from Talladega Superspeedway grumbling about what a good dude their hero was. Earnhardt Jr. didn't win the Aaron's 499, but he was instrumental in Jimmie Johnson's victory. Earnhardt concluded long before the finish that the drafting partnership -- races at Talladega and Daytona have become almost an entirely new genre in which drivers race in tandem -- with Johnson worked better with the winner of the past five championships riding in front. The trouble, from the perspective of Earnhardt's fans, is that riding behind Johnson makes it impossible for Earnhardt to win. Not that Johnson wasn't a sympathetic figure, mind you. It had been a whole 15 races since the perennial champion's most recent victory. And Earnhardt has been prospering. Why, he won ... 101 races ago. George W. Bush, no relation to Kyle and Kurt (Busch), was president. The four drivers at Hendrick Motorsports might as well be ... musketeers. There were four of them, you know: Athos, Portos and Aramis were eventually joined by d'Artagnan. They acted with esprit de corps, morale and several other terms derived from French. All for one. One for all. Just like Johnson, Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon and Mark Martin. Earnhardt explained it all matter-of-factly in the style of the swell guy he is. "Well, I was more comfortable pushing Jimmie [Johnson], and I think we were the faster combination pushing that way," he said. If only there had been a fife and bugle corps performing in the background, Earnhardt's words would have rung even more wholesome. "If I couldn't win the race," he said, "I wanted Jimmie to win the race because I had worked with him all day, and he's my teammate and I'm proud to be driving for Hendrick Motorsports, and this was a great finish and a great weekend for us to be able to qualify like we did, race like we did, and we have awesome engines and we build great cars and we all finished very well today, and that is a tribute to the craftsmanship we have back in Charlotte." Johnson, of course, was appropriately grateful. Of teammate and fourth-place finisher Earnhardt, Johnson said, "He made the decision that my car was faster leading, and the way these things have been finishing up that lead car is going to have the win, so, in some respects, he was more worried about the team having a good performance than anything. They are responsible for this win today."

Dale Earnhardt Jr. (in the No. 88 National Guard Chevy) gives Jimmie Johnson enough bump draft to edge Clint Boywer (No. 33) at the finish line at Talladega Superspeedway. (Getty Images photo)

The atmosphere at Hendrick Motorsports is obviously conducive to victories and championships. Almost everyone in NASCAR says over and over that it is a team sport, even though, by definition, it really isn't. Dale Earnhardt, Original Recipe, once had teammates. He treated a guy named Mike Skinner as if he were his personal valet. Much, however, has changed since then. *** Monte Dutton covers motorsports for The Gaston (N.C.) Gazette.

Strength Training Is the Real Deal A recent study at the University of Michigan has convinced me to get started at the gym again. It concluded that while muscle loss is to be expected with age, we don’t have to accept it. Researchers even pinpointed exactly what we need to do to regain lost muscle tone and strength: resistance exercises, also known as strength training. With strong muscles we can continue to climb stairs and mountains, dig in the garden and row a kayak into advanced years. With muscle loss we might experience shaky balance, falls and bone fractures -- which can lead to loss of independence. The study from UM’s Physical Activity and Exercise Intervention Research Laboratory talks about how few seniors take part in strength training, and faults previous studies for not making it crystal clear just how great the benefit is. Maybe this is what has sent me back to the gym: the researchers’ absolute certainty that resistance training can bring gains in strength and development of lean muscle mass. They were even able to specify how much muscle we lose: nearly a half pound per year after the age of 50. So, I made an appointment with a personal trainer at the gym. He was very young -- but very smart: His first question was whether my doctor had approved my exercise plan. (Answer: yes.) Then he let me set my own initial weight levels on the machines and incorporated those into an overall plan of repetitions and sets for the next six weeks, at which time we’ll review. Even though many of us stop and restart exercise programs, the main thing is that we keep trying again, right?

• "My roses really look beautiful. When I am cutting stems to put in a bouquet, I use a clothespin to grip the stem. It saves me from getting pricked by thorns, because it has a bit of reach to it." -- L.E. in Georgia • For even distribution in sowing seeds for your garden, use a saltshaker for tiny seeds. You can get a cheese shaker for larger seeds, if necessary.

• "If you have to cut a nylon cord or shoelace, you can use a flame to melt the end into a nub that won't run or fray. Use a little heat and press it together on a hard surface very briefly. It works fast!" -- R.S. in Maine • "Cars are getting so big these days. I use a string mop to wash the top and back of my van. I can reach everything better, and it does a great job." -- S.C. in Nevada • To get glass shower doors squeaky clean, use a paste of baking soda and water to scrub stubborn water stains, then rinse the whole thing with straight white vinegar. Put the vinegar in a spray bottle and spray well, then rub off with a sponge. Rinse with plain water. Send your tips to Now Here's a Tip, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Oxygen Hose Is No Chew Toy DEAR PAW'S CORNER: I have a 2-year-old cat, "Annie," who loves to chew on anything plastic -- particularly my wife's oxygen hose. How can I stop her from doing this? It gets costly. -- Dave F., via email DEAR DAVE: It's not just costly in terms of replacing medical equipment, there's also the risk of Annie having to endure a costly surgery to remove bits of plastic lodged in her digestive tract. However, it can be tough to break a cat of certain habits, and many cats love to gnaw at certain textures and shapes. If possible, you or your wife should come up with ways to move the oxygen hose (or hoses) out of Annie's reach, either by attaching to the chair with a strip or two of medical tape or, if carrying oxygen around, by looping the excess length of hose around the top of the tank or over one's shoulder. Another method to consider is spraying the exposed length of hose with a cat repellent. Several types are available at pet stores and are used to deter cats from clawing or gnawing things like furniture or other fascinating protuberances. In either case, constant vigilance is still required, as Annie will continue to try to bite the hose if she can get close enough (despite the presence of any stinky spray). When she makes a move toward the hose, distract her with a toy or by calling her. Or, by gently picking her

Coke Bottle

Q: I have an old Coca-Cola bottle in amber glass and am curious about its value. -- John, Bay Minette, Ala.

A: According to several collectors I contacted, most amber Coca-Cola bottles are generally valued in the $20 to $35 range, depending on age and condition. Bill Schutz is president of the Mobile Gulf Coast Coca-Cola Collectors Club, which includes both Alabama and Louisiana. He might be able to help you. Contact him at bmschutz@aol.com. ••• Q: I have two Edison Diamond Disc 78s, each with a small chip. They feature Billy Wynne’s Greenwich Village Inn orchestra, Benny Davis and Joe Burke, Fry’s Million Dollar Pier orchestra, and Gus Kahn. -- Jean, Oxford, Conn. A: The Edison Diamond Disc recordings actually are cut at 80 rpm, not 78 rpm, More importantly, they could not be played on standard machines, and since they required a special Edison player, the quarter-inch discs were soon eclipsed by the more accessible recordings being issued by such companies as Victor, Brunswick and Columbia. Most Edison discs sell in the $5 to $10 range, depending on condition and desirability. ••• Q: I have a copy of “The Sinking of the Titanic and Great Sea Disasters,” edited by Logan Marshall and published in 1912 by L.T. Meyers. It is in good condition, and I would like to know its value. -- Artrischia, Cottage Hills, Ill. A: I found several copies offered for sale at www.abe.com in the $45 to $75 range. I also checked with several used bookstores in Los Angeles, Denver, New York and St. Louis, where I found early editions with average prices of about $50. As with most collectibles, prices are generally determined by rarity, demand and condition. ••• Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

10 REASONS

Why Isagenix® is Your Anti-Aging Solution

1. SLOW AGING FROM THE INSIDE OUT

Isagenix Nutritional Cleansing and Replenishing™ products help eliminate harmful toxins and impurities from the body that can accelerate the aging process. These products also replenish the body with crucial nutrients for optimal health. The Rejuvity and other anti-aging products also address the need for optimal cellular nutrition that ultimately creates a new level of wellness, vitality, and youthful appearance from the inside out.

2. ADDRESS AGING ON ALL FRONTS-NOT JUST SKIN

The skin is largely an indication of how the body is aging. If the body has been abused, neglected and malnourished, then the skin will reflect this. However, if the body’s cells, tissues and organs are protected from harmful pollutants and replenished with crucial nutrients, the skin will reflect this level of health by appearing vibrant, glowing and youthful.

3. NO HARSH CHEMICALS OR IRRITANTS

The anti-aging products in the Rejuvity and IsaDermix® lines do not use any harsh, irritating chemicals or compounds, including phthalates or parabens. Other common products that include harsh compounds often require downtime and may damage the skin further.

4. PROMOTE SKIN’S NATURAL PROCESSES

Ageless Renewal Serum and other anti-aging skin products help minimize the appearance of deep wrinkles, support collagen production, improve elasticity and tone, and increase firmness by helping the skin remember what it has forgotten as we age.

5. BOOST ENERGY, VITALITY, AND OVERALL HEALTH

In addition to the superior skin care, Rejuvity and other Isagenix Nutritional Cleansing and Replenishing products slow biological aging of the entire body, leading to enhanced energy and a new level of vitality and improved overall wellness.

6. SUPPORTED BY SCIENCE

All of the ingredients in Rejuvity and the other Isagenix anti-aging and replenishing products are supported by scientific research. In addition, many of the company’s own products - including Ageless Renewal Serum - have been specifically investigated in scientific trials with extremely positive results. A recent trial on Ageless Renewal Serum showed a 92% increase in the overall improvement of the skin, and the CoQ10 used in Ageless Actives has been shown to be 800% more absorbable than standard powder forms used in other products.

7. SUPERIOR QUALITY

Isagenix prides itself in using only the highest quality ingredients. With Rejuvity and other anti-aging product lines, this commitment to quality continues.

8. UNMATCHED INGREDIENT FORMULATIONS

All of the Isagenix product lines boast unmatched ingredient profiles you can’t find in any other product. These include the growth factors, polypeptides and actives in Ageless Renewal Serum, the lipid-based CoQ10 in Ageless Actives, and many more.

9. ISAGENIX IS AHEAD OF THE CURVE

The Isagenix Quality, Regulatory, Technology, Science (QRTS) teams use the latest scientific research to create life-changing products, thus solidifying its position as an industry leader.

10. AT THE FOREFRONT OF THE REPLENISHING CATEGORY

Isagenix is the creator of the Replenishing product category. Its anti-aging product lines continue to solidify this position as the company continues to develop new products within this category.
