Q: What British town makes terrible sandwiches? A: Oldham!

1. For what is Rice, California, known? 2. What annual festival is held in Weiner, Arkansas? 3. Where is Pumpkin Center? 4. What state grows the most pumpkins? 5. What city in the United States is known for chocolate candy?

1. Name the town in Oklahoma that is named after a storekeeper who gave his customers cookies. 2. Another small Oklahoma town is named after a storekeeper’s response when she was out of something. What is the name? “Bring porridge, bring sausage, bring fish for a start, bring kidneys and mushrooms and partridges’ legs, but let the foundation be bacon and eggs.” A.P. Herbert

The Sandwich Festival is held in Sandwich, Kent, England each year in August. This year it will be August 22-30. There are many places to stay, but history buffs should check out Thomas Paine’s Cottage. It was built circa 1677, and Paine lived there in 1759. In case his name isn’t familiar to you, Paine penned several revolutionary writings including “Common Sense” in 1776, encouraging American independence from England. He is also credited with creating the phrase “United States of America.”

A movement that is gaining popularity among city dwellers is patio gardening. A few pots, good soil, regular attention with water, and sunshine can yield some fresh vegetables for your table. Even if all you grow is fresh basil and tomatoes, you will surely enjoy the “fruits” of your labor. Many areas also have “community” gardens where you can pay a small amount to have the use of a garden plot. Rules require cooperation with other gardeners and requirements for keeping your space in good shape. Check out your options!

Driving through Chicken, Alaska, Ted saw a chicken cross the road. He noticed it looked different and was very fast. He followed it to a small farm where he was amazed to see many three-legged chickens. Farmer John came out and Ted said, “Three-legged chickens? Wow!” Farmer John replied, “Yeah, I bred them that way because I love drumsticks.” “How do they taste?” asked Ted. The farmer smiled, “I don’t really know. I haven’t been able to catch one yet!”

Out of Sight By Tresa Erickson

You love to garden and have a menagerie of tools and equipment to prove it. You name it, and you probably have it. While you store much of your tools in your garden shed, it is starting to get full. You need some additional storage space and a second shed is out of the question. Your spouse would have a fit. It’s time you got creative and came up with some alternative storage solutions.

build a bench running the length of your deck with storage inside or add doors all the way around underneath for a unique storage area. You may construct a low platform and fence it in for the storage of your garbage cans. The choice is yours. You don’t have to extend your garage or add another garden shed to house all of your tools and equipments. You just have to get creative and look for areas where you can tuck things out of sight. When possible, store items close to where they

There are many places around your lawn and garden where you can store your tools. Trees, bushes, planting beds, woodpiles and fences all provide excellent coverage. Just stash your large tools and equipment behind the areas and retrieve them as needed. For the storage of smaller tools and equipment, consider purchasing some sort of plastic bin. Several are available, some of which may serve a dual purpose. Some bins may serve as benches with storage inside, while others may be constructed to resemble boulders and the like and serve as landscaping features. You can place these bins almost anywhere, in the yard or on a deck.

Yaks are divided into two species: domestic and wild. Domestic yak are smaller, have a less shaggy coat, and probably originated from wild Tibetan yak. Domestic yak are used for travel and as draft animals. They are also valued for their milk, meat, wool, and dung. Domestic yak are more varied in colors than wild yak. Wild yak live in alpine meadows and on the steppes in Asia. They live at the highest altitude of any

NAME CHANGES

Hollywood stars often change their names to help advance their careers, but most ordinary citizens keep the names bestowed on them at birth. Still, name changes are not uncommon in many arenas. Throughout history, towns, cities and even coutries have undergone name changes for a wide variety of reasons. • In 1950, when preparing for the 10th Anniversary of the radio show “Truth or Consequences,” producer Ralph Edwards commented in a meeting that he wished, “some town in the United States liked and respected our show so much that it would like to change its name to ‘Truth or Consequences.’” The New Mexico State Tourist Bureau passed the news on to the Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce, and they jumped at the chance! There are many towns named Hot Springs, but only one Truth or Consequences. Edwards and his crew aired the first live, coast-to-coast broadcast of the show in its namesake city in 1950. He visited on the anniversary every year for 50 years. The townspeople have voted many times to retain the name. • With an estimated population of 180, Clark, Texas, had only been incorporated for five years when it changed its name to DISH. Yes, all capital letters, like the satellite television company. DISH Network agreed to give residents of the town 10 years of free basic service, including a DVR (digital video recorder) in exchange for the name change. The official renaming was on November 16, 2005. Let’s see if they keep the name after the free TV runs out! • When Google announced plans to “develop a trial network in one or more communities that reaches at least 50,000 people” for faster and better internet, Topeka, Kansas, renamed itself “Google” for the month of March 2010.

Consumers Bailing on Bailout Program The government's Making Home Affordable mortgage bailout programs haven't been as successful as was expected. The programs were designed to lower mortgage payments, allowing homeowners to keep their homes and avoid foreclosure. As it's turning out, the vast majority of homeowners who get a lowered mortgage end up defaulting on their mortgages anyway. There are quite a few reasons for the failure of the programs. --Banks weren't initially asking for proof of income, automatically putting homeowners into a trial program. Once paperwork was completed during the trial period, it was discovered that many homeowners had

too much income to qualify and were taken out of the program. (This happened with nearly half a million homeowners.) --Paperwork was lost or homeowners failed to send in required documents. --Homeowners are giving up and selling their homes. (Those who agree to a short sale or just give the house back to the bank qualify for $3,000 in moving expenses.) --Homeowners haven't been able to get through the trial program successfully (payments have to be made on time) before the new modification deal is final. -Even with mortgage modification, homeowners still have other debts to juggle. Not only did they have late mortgage payments, but other bills had stacked up as well before they applied for help. Those bills must still be paid. The number of people applying to the programs has plunged, but a new one, starting in August, could encourage thousands to seek help: the Unemployment

Program. Some of the eligibility requirements include: • Mortgage must have originated prior to Jan. 1, 2009. • Home must be the principal residence. • The mortgage wasn't already modified by one of the programs. • Mortgage payments are late, but not more than three months. • The payment is more than 31 percent of the homeowner's income. • The homeowner can prove unemployment by receiving unemployment benefits. At this point there are a number of programs available: Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP), Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP), Second Lien Modification Program (2MP), HomeAffordable Unemployment Program (UP) and Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives Program (HAFA).

Page 8 NAME CHANGES (continued): • Another temporary name change with a longer history is Dr. Pepper, Texas. Dublin, Texas, is home of the oldest Dr. Pepper bottling plant in the world, started in 1891. Dublin becomes Dr. Pepper for one week each June during the town’s birthday celebration. Dr. Pepper was invented in nearby Waco. • Many changes in China in recent years have opened the country for tourism. Realizing the importance of attracting tourists for monetary purposes, Zhongdian was changed to Shangri La in 2002. Shangri La was the name of the paradise in James Hilton’s 1933 novel, “Lost Horizon.” Located in Yunnan Province near Tibet, Shangri La is home to Potatso National Park, China’s first national park, opened in 2007. • The most recent big name change in China was in January 2010, after the great success of the movie “Avatar.” The movie has become the most popular movie ever in China and has made over $102 million in that country alone. A strange-looking craggy peak in Zhangjiajie in Hunan Province that was known as “Southern Sky Column” was renamed “Avatar Hallelujah Mountain.” • Have you heard of Pile O’ Bones in Canada? Hunting bison for food, clothing and shelter in the 1800s in Saskatchewan was a way of life. When finished with the bison parts, piles of bones remained, hence the unique name. When the railroad was built across Canada in the late 1880s, the community was renamed Regina in honor of Queen Victoria. (Regina means “queen.”) It became the capital when the province of Saskatchewan was formed in 1905.
