When pending resident Eleanor Roosevelt asked Lou Hoover to show her the White House kitchen, Mrs. Hoover offered a barbed reply. “Mrs. Roosevelt,” she said, “I have lived in this house for four years.

The White House household staff, however, will stay behind to work for the Obamas. Many of the maids, butlers, chefs, plumbers, and electricians on staff have worked there for the past 30 years.

PARTY PLANNING

We asked some Tidbits readers to share their favorite tips on how to hold great get-togethers, and they didn’t disappoint! Here we go: • When holding a party, you want to make the event worth attending. Offer something special – premiere a new movie that’s just come out on DVD, or bring in food from a restaurant that just opened up so that everyone can try it for the first time. If you want people to stay around for a while, give them something to do. Leave some decks of cards around the house, or bring out some board games. If a sports event is on at night, put it on the TV in one room so fans can enjoy it. Bring out some interesting coffee-table books or photo albums for guests to peruse. • If possible, try to stick to an established “guest list.” It’s very easy for a party to become overcrowded, and when attendees find that there are no seats left or there’s a long wait for the bathroom, they may decide to depart. And if a few partygoers leave, those left begin to feel that it’s time to go as well. Before you know it, your party that was intended for 15 but hosted 40 is now down to zero. If one of your invitees asks to bring someone else along, don’t hesitate to ask for help if it’s needed. (“Would you bring an extra fold-up chair so everyone can be comfortable?”) Most people that you’d care to have in your home in the first place should be quite willing to lend a hand. • Do what you can to keep people from driving home if they’re overly tired, or if they’ve been drinking to excess. Keep a list of cab companies handy, and pay for it yourself if necessary. (You don’t want your party to be known as “the one where Joe got drunk smashed up his car,” do you?) You’re the one holding the party, so you should be responsible for the people attending.

PARTY PLANNING (continued): • Fun people seem to enjoy “themed” parties, and in some ways, it’s easier for the host as well. Party shops are filled with decorations, costumes, and inexpensive “gifts” to celebrate nearly any kind of get-together. If attendees will be wearing costumes, make sure to have cameras ready to record everyone’s dress-up efforts early in the evening. (Costumes may become uncomfortable after a while, so it’s best to capture everyone while they’re still freshly dressed.) Here’s a nice touch: Print out a photo that you took of each person at the event, and send it to them with a handwritten note thanking them for making your party a success. • Your food menu doesn’t have to be fancy. If your guests will be drinking, it may be the worst time to offer them food items with which they’re unfamiliar. If you know your guests (and you should), you probably have an idea which ones have particular needs. Make sure you get some sugar-free drinks for those who need them, as well as some vegetarian-friendly snacks. (All too often, people who don’t eat meat get stuck at a party with nothing but a few stale potato chips.) Dips are popular, of course, but look for thick ones that will “stick” to a chip or a celery stalk… otherwise, drips are inevitable. • Be flexible when it comes to the atmosphere of your party. If you’ve put together a bunch of upbeat songs to play, but notice that no one is dancing, you might tone it down a bit. If everyone’s in a singing mood, play some tunes that they’re likely to know the words to. If conversation and game-playing is the order of the evening, instrumental music might be the best choice. Don’t worry if the party isn’t going exactly “how you planned.” As long as everyone’s safe, happy, and having a good time, that’s all that matters!

Tidbits of Glenrock, Douglas & Wheatland

TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH By Paul G. Donohue, M.D.

Peripheral Artery Disease Common in Older Ages DEAR DR. DONOHUE: A commercial I saw on TV had a grandparent and grandchild talking about peripheral artery disease. It got me wondering if I have it. I got the idea that many older people do. I am 78. What are its signs? -- K.M. ANSWER: Peripheral artery disease, PAD, also goes by the name peripheral vascular disease. It is a common condition in older people, but not every senior citizen has it. Close to 15 percent of those over 70 do. Here “peripheral” refers to the legs. “Artery disease” is artery clogging, the same process that goes on in heart arteries and culminates in a heart attack. High blood cholesterol, blood fats, blood protein and platelets aggregate on an

artery wall, and as the buildup grows, it blocks circulation to the tissues fed by that artery. Blood doesn’t reach leg muscles in a sufficient amount to support those muscles when they’re active. The common sign of PAD is calf pain while walking. The pain leaves when the person stops walking. Many people with PAD can tell, almost to the inch, when the pain will begin. The pain indicates leg muscles aren’t getting enough blood. A simple office test to detect PAD is to compare blood pressure taken at the ankles with blood pressure taken in the arms. The two readings should be close. With PAD, the ankle blood pressure is lower than arm pressure due to the obstruction to blood flow. Management of PAD is similar to management of clogged heart arteries. Blood cholesterol has to be lowered, blood pressure normalized and blood sugar controlled. Weight reduction, if indicated, is important, as is daily exercise, -- even though pain occurs during walking -has to become routine. Cigarette smoking, of course, is out of the question. If the doctor does confirm a diagnosis of PAD, prescription medicines help blood get around

artery blockages. Aspirin, Plavix and Pletal are examples of such medicines. When the obstruction is sizable, then leg arteries can undergo the same kinds of treatments as heart arteries -- bypass surgery or stents. The booklet on peripheral artery disease discusses this topic in detail and its treatment. Readers can order a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue -- No. 109W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE: How soon after taking medicine is it OK to drink alcohol? I say an hour is enough time. My wife thinks it should be four hours. Who is right? -- B.N. ANSWER: First you should make sure your medicine is compatible with alcohol. Some medicines aren’t. In that case, you shouldn’t drink alcohol at all while taking the medicine. It takes the stomach about four hours to empty its contents. Medication, however, doesn’t stay in the stomach for that long. If your medicine is compatible with alcohol use, the answer is a compromise: You should be safe if you wait about two hours after taking it. *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible. Readers may write him or request an order form of available health newsletters at P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. (c) 2008 North America Synd., Inc. All Rights Reserved

Health Insurance: Know Your Options Many families are having to make tough decisions now. First to be paid out of the budget are necessities like food, utilities, mortgage and car payment. Sometimes health insurance goes away because families can’t afford it. Sometimes the insurance goes away because of a job loss. In either case, you might have options to find affordable insurance. If you’ve just left an employer that provided health insurance, ask about signing up for COBRA, which is a continuation of the group health insurance through your employer. Generally you can be eligible for up to 18 months of coverage, unless there is a qualifying event

that can stretch the time to 36 months. COBRA is more expensive than your regular insurance was (especially if your employer picked up part of the cost), but it’s much less expensive than paying for the medical expenses you might incur. For more information on COBRA, check the U.S. Department of Labor site (www.dol. gov). If you have an ongoing need for prescription drugs, contact the drug manufacturer about discounted or free prescriptions. Call your state’s department of insurance. Ask what others in the same situation are doing. Visit your local insurance agents and see what they have to offer for individual policies. They’ll know up-to-the-minute information on policies that are available. Keep in mind that the agent is going to get a commission on whatever policies you buy. Check online for ratings of the companies he or she recommends. Go to www.insurance.freeadvice.com for reviews, and A.M. Best (www.ambest.com) for ratings information. Once you get a policy, read every word. Check eHealth Insurance (ehealthinsurance. com) for quotes and information. If you’re paying for COBRA, check into COBRA

January 15 - January 21, 2008

alternatives on this site. Unfortunately, they don’t have information for all states, but for the ones that are covered, an A.M. Best rating is shown. Look to your alliances. If you’re a member of a group such as AARP or a fraternity, or if you’re a college graduate, check for group policies based on your membership. If you’re self-employed, check trade-specific organizations that pertain to your field, or Small Business Service Bureau (www.sbsb. com) and membership benefits in the National Association for the Self-Employed (www.nase. org). Call the Chamber of Commerce in your area. Sometimes it will have group plans for local small businesses.

• California Roll. If you’ve slowed down at a stop sign, then continued through the intersection without coming to a complete stop, you’re guilty of the California Roll. This tactic is so rampant in its namesake state that traffic cameras have been mounted on stop signs at certain busy intersections to reveal the identities of the culprits. • Michigan Left. Out-of-staters usually get more than a little befuddled when they encounter their first “Michigan Left.” The state’s strategy for eliminating left-hand turns at divided-highway intersections is to require drivers to make a controlled U-turn around the median. This maneuver requires the driver to make a quick right turn before looping around to the left, which is just as confusing as it sounds. • Jughandle Turn. New Jersey has its own solution to the left-hand-turn problem: a loop just past the intersection of a main road that allows traffic onto the far side of the adjacent road. A jughandle turn is like a tiny version of the leaf on a full-scale “cloverleaf” intersection, common on freeways and other major roads. Traffic exits to the right onto the looping ramp and then merges with the traffic on the cross street after circling around. • Frontage Roads. Standard in a few U.S. states, these “service drives” run parallel to either side of major freeways. They provide access to nearby communities and businesses without requiring drivers to exit several miles past their destination. Merging from the freeway onto one of these “feeder roads” is a learned skill that may confound drivers not familiar with them.

A wealthy young man was moving to a new house a few streets away. The moving crew carelessly tossed the man’s cherished antiques about despite his complaints, so to save his very valuable grandfather's clock from any potential damage, he decided to carry the clock to his new house himself. Of course, it was so tall and heavy, he had to put it down every few feet to rest.

service ItsMyLife.com (www. itsmylife.com) recommends that pets be protected in writing, as part of your will. Verbal agreements can easily be forgotten. The company is offering its “Pets Letter of Wishes” for free through Valentine’s Day, and its other estate-planning documents are available at a reasonable price. You don’t have to go through a service -- you can add a provision for your pet in your existing will, or create a will, simply by writing out your wishes on paper and having a witness agree to and sign it. But I recommend an attorney look over any will, regardless of how or where it was made, to make sure it can be carried out with few problems.
