Edible? Yes. Appetizing? Not always. This week, Tidbits cooks up some unusual foods that you might not eat if you knew what they were! • Is it offal or awful? Maybe both! Offal is the term chefs use to refer to the entrails and organs of animals, such as brains, hearts, kidneys, liver, tongue, pancreas and glands.

• When you hear the word “sweetbreads,” don’t think banana or pumpkin bread. It’s actually the culinary term for the thymus glands of a lamb, pig or calf, located in the throat and neck. Most often, the glands are soaked in salt water, then poached in milk, after which they are fried.

• Head cheese isn’t really cheese at all, but rather a mixture of the meat and tissue found on a pig’s skull, set in gelatin.

• Remember the old advertising phrase, “There’s always room for Jell-O”? How about a gelatin mold made with meat stock? Add cold pork, chicken, hard-boiled eggs and some vegetables, and you’ll end up with a concoction known as aspic. Although some cooks add unflavored gelatin to the mix for a firmer mold, traditional aspic uses the coagulated broth remaining after boiling an animal’s head and bones.

• Another place you’ll see slimy gelatin covering a chunk of meat is when you open up a can of SPAM. This little tin contains chopped pork shoulder and ham meat, hence the name, Spiced Meat And Ham. First manufactured in 1937, the luncheon meat was a popular staple for soldiers during World War II. Since its invention, more than seven billion cans have been sold.

• At holiday time, many Norwegians fix a traditional dish known as Smalahove. This yummy dish is prepared first by torching the skin and fleece of a sheep’s head, removing the brain, then boiling the head for about three hours. Arrange some rutabagas and potatoes around it on a platter, and there you have your Christmas feast!

• You’re not getting dessert when you order black pudding after a meal. Rather you’ll be served a sausage made up of animal blood, fat, rolled oats and spices. Depending on where you live, that blood could come from a pig, cow, sheep, duck or goat. Some recipes add chestnuts, sweet potato or barley to the mix. A yummy Asian snack, the pig’s blood cake, combines blood with sticky rice, fries it and serves it on a popsicle stick.

• The process of making Polish blood soup is a tricky one. The head of a live duck must be chopped off and its blood collected in the cooking pot. Throw in some vinegar, onions, celery, parsley, sugar and some dumplings, and there you have it! Some cooks like to add dried fruit, such as prunes, pears or apples. • When folks down South talk about eating chit’lins, they are referring to chitterlings. This

Finding Agent Orange/Kidney Cancer Link Researchers at the Overton Brooks Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Shreveport, La., have been taking a close look at the correlation between Agent Orange exposure and kidney cancer. They pulled the records of nearly 300 patients who’d been diagnosed with kidney cancer, and of those, 13 had been exposed to Agent Orange. There was exposure documentation on 10 of them. They’re calling the research “preliminary” as it hasn’t had a peer review, but at this point, other VA medical centers will be pooling their data as well. This is how the process begins to have an illness declared a presumptive connection to Agent Orange exposure. It will be a long haul and will include much more research, reviews and finally (one can hope) a positive outcome with claims resulting in benefits. If you have kidney cancer and were exposed to Agent Orange in any of the locations where it was used or stored, make sure your paperwork is in order with the VA medical folks. File your claim. Then, down the road, you won’t have to rush to file. To see the long list of locations where Agent Orange was used in Vietnam, go to www., and then click on Agent Orange-Related Diseases. Then click on “exposure to Agent Orange or other herbicides. If your exposure was elsewhere, there’s a link down near the bottom titled “Herbicide Tests and Storage Outside Vietnam.” Yes, this chart is buried on the site. If you want your free Agent Orange Registry Health Exam, call your closest VA hospital and ask for the VA Environmental Health Coordinator. This is not the same as a disability compensation exam, and you don’t have to be enrolled in the VA’s health-care system.

Learn Your State’s Pet Evacuation Laws By Samantha Mazzotta

DEAR PAW’S CORNER: During Hurricane Irene, I was kept busy contacting my town’s superintendent’s office on behalf of some of my older neighbors who were worried about evacuating with their pets. The misinformation about evacuating with pets was huge. Fortunately we were spared the flooding that took place in surrounding towns. After the storm, the fire chief told me my neighbors could have brought their pets with them as long as they were crated. Please let your readers know that many states, including Vermont, have pet evacuation laws on the books that specify exactly how and where owners can evacuate with their pets. Owners need to know them, because many emergency centers and local media did not, and citizens often were misinformed. -- S.H., Bellows Falls, Vt. DEAR S.H.: Thank you for the heads-up! Readers, in 2006 following Hurricane Katrina, the federal government passed the PETS (Pet

Evacuation and Transportation Standards) Act, which requires state and local governments to include companion pets in their disaster planning and evacuation plans. Laws in each state and municipality are slightly different, so it’s important to familiarize yourself with the regulations where you reside prior to a natural disaster.

For example, Louisiana and New York permit pets to ride on public transportation with their owners if an evacuation is declared. Check your state government’s website (go to for a list of links to each state’s site) or contact the emergency planning agency by phone to get details. Of course, it’s also important to include your pet in emergency planning at home. Keep your pet’s travel crate and important documents together, along with a small kit containing food, treats, toys and medications so you can quickly grab them and go if needed.

Questions About Shingles Vaccine DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am a 59-year-old female who had a severe case of chickenpox as a child. It has been recommended that I get a shingles vaccination after my 60th birthday. However, my husband never had chickenpox, and I have a 1-month-old granddaughter. Are my husband and granddaughter at risk for becoming infected when I get the vaccine? -J.Z. ANSWER: The shingles vaccine Zostavax contains live but weakened virus. Transmission of the vaccine virus from someone who just received it is theoretically possible, but actually is a rare event. Your husband’s chances of catching the vaccine virus are close to zero. Although your husband says he never had chickenpox, 99 percent of adults bear evidence in their blood that they did have childhood chickenpox. Many of these people have no recollection of being sick. That might be because the infection was so mild that they never knew they were infected. Furthermore, all adults, whether they remember they had chickenpox or not, are urged to have the vaccine after their 60th birthday. Your husband can get the shot along with you. As far as your 1-month-old grandchild goes, her chance of catching the virus from a recently immunized person is small. However, you can eliminate the risk completely by waiting to have your immunization until your granddaughter gets

• Ask for a plate of menudo, and what you’ll get is an order of beef tripe, made from the rubbery lining of the stomach of a cow, sheep, goat, pig or deer. Your favorite Mexican restaurant might garnish it with jalapeno peppers.

• No matter what you call them — Rocky Mountain oysters, cowboy caviar, Montana tendergroins or bull fries — it doesn’t change the fact that they are bull testicles, coated in flour and deep-fried. The people in some states love this “appetizer” so much, they hold entire festivals around them, such as Eagle, Idaho’s “World’s Largest Rocky Mountain Oyster Feed” and Montana’s “Testicle Festival.”

• Not all tacos are created equal! Lengueta de la vaca are tacos made with cow tongue, while Tacos de Cabeza include all parts of the cow’s head, including eyes and lips.

• The French have a beautiful name for a particular variety of hot deli sandwich —langue de vache. That doesn’t change the fact that it’s cow tongue.

her chickenpox immunization at 12 months; you don’t have to be immunized on the day you turn 60. Or you can be immunized before your granddaughter gets her chickenpox vaccine, and then wait to hold her and care for her for two or three weeks after you have the shot. Shingles is the bane of older people. The booklet on this illness describes it in detail and how it is treated. Readers can order a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue -- No. 1201W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Can. with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am a 78-year-old woman with a torn rotator cuff and arthritis in my left shoulder. My doctor says nothing can be done short of a complete shoulder replacement. Is this true? Should I get a second opinion? -- E.W. ANSWER: The rotator cuff is a “cuff” (much like shirt cuff) of four tendons that arise from four back muscles. Those tendons swing around the shoulder joint to hold it in place. Small rotatorcuff tears heal on their own. Large tears require surgical correction. Some tears call for shoulder joint replacement, especially when the joint itself is arthritic. More than 23,000 Americans will have their shoulder joints replaced this year. Almost all will have gratifying results. They’ll be able to move their shoulder without pain. The shoulder has an excellent blood supply, so healing this joint is much faster than healing a knee or hip replacement. Furthermore, the shoulder, unlike the knee or hip, doesn’t have to support body weight, another point in its favor. A second opinion is always worthwhile. If the second doctor agrees that you need a new joint, I say go for it.

• If you order geoduck off the menu, don’t expect to get an exotic poultry dish. It’s actually the largest burrowing clam in the world and is considered a delicacy in Asian countries, selling for as much as $30 per pound. It’s one of the animal kingdom’s longest-living creatures, at an average of 146 years, contributing to the amazing quantity of eggs produced by the female during her lifetime — five billion! The geoduck has a long meaty siphon it uses to suck in plankton

when feeding. That portion of this mollusk is usually cooked fondue-style and dipped in soy or wasabi sauce.

• Folks in Sardinia, Italy, may change the way you think about cheese. Their casu marzu starts with a sheep’s milk Pecorino cheese but with one variable. Whole cheeses are left outside so that the Piophila casei or “cheese fly” can lay its eggs inside the cheese, as many as 500 eggs at one time. Once the eggs hatch, the larvae eat their way through the cheese, and their acidic digestive juices break down the cheese’s fats, resulting in a very soft cheese. There are usually thousands of little white worms in a casu marzu cheese ready for the market. It’s up to the individual diner whether to scoop out the maggots before eating.

• If your plate is filled with the Bosworth, Falstaff or Bedford Fillbasket varieties, you’ll soon be eating one of the most disliked vegetables, the Brussels sprout. This vitamin-rich cruciferous veggie belongs to the same family as the cabbage, collard greens, broccoli, kale and kohlrabi. Brussels sprouts were first brought to North America by French immigrants settling in Louisiana around 1800.

• The Scottish regularly cook up a dish called haggis, which is a sheep’s stomach stuffed with a mixture of the liver, heart, lungs, rolled oats and a variety of spices. Some fast-food restaurants in Scotland even have this item on their menu, deep-fat fried or as a burger on a bun. For those who don’t care to eat it, there are contests for “haggis hurling,” a sport that has a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. The current record-holder threw a 1.5-pound (.68-kg) haggis a distance of 180 feet, 10 inches (55.12 m).

• On Sept. 22, 1598, English playwright Ben Jonson is indicted for manslaughter after a duel. He was very nearly hanged, but his ability to read and write saved him. He claimed “benefit of clergy,” which allowed him to be sentenced by the lenient ecclesiastical courts. Jonson was as famous in his time as Shakespeare. • On Sept. 21, 1866, H.G. Wells, pioneer of science fiction, is born in Bromley, England. In 1895, he published his classic novel “The Time Machine,” about a man who journeys to the future. The book was a success, as was “The War of the Worlds” (1898). • On Sept. 20, 1881, Chester Arthur becomes third president to serve in one year. The year began with Rutherford B. Hayes in office. Hayes served out his term and turned over the reins to James A. Garfield. Four months later, Garfield was shot by an assassin but did not die until Sept. 19. Vice President Arthur was then sworn in as president. • On Sept. 24, 1890, faced with the eminent destruction of their church and way of life, Mormon leaders reluctantly issue the “Mormon Manifesto” in which they command all Latter-day Saints to uphold the laws of the nation and abandon polygamy. • On Sept. 23, 1944, President Franklin D. Roosevelt is forced to defend his dog’s honor and his own reputation. Critics had circulated a story claiming that Roosevelt had accidentally left Fala behind while visiting the Aleutian Islands earlier that year. They accused the president of sending a Navy destroyer, at taxpayer expense of up to $20 million, to go back and pick up the dog. • On Sept. 19, 1957, the United States detonates a 1.7 kiloton nuclear weapon in an underground tunnel in Nevada. The test was part of a series of 29 nuclear weapons and nuclear weapons safety tests known as Operation Plumbbob. • On Sept. 25, 1981, Sandra Day O’Connor becomes the first female U.S. Supreme Court justice in history when she is sworn in by Chief Justice Warren Burger.

A New Way to Do CPR When it comes to saving a life, how far would you go? We know what CPR is: CardioPulmonary Resuscitation. It’s used to restart a heart that has stopped. It involves lot of hard work pumping a patient’s chest, alternating with another person to force air into the lungs and counting breaths. Of course, it’s a worthwhile effort, and many of us have taken CPR classes to learn how to do it. Unfortunately, far too many people won’t even try to administer CPR for one main reason: They are hesitant to give mouth-tomouth resuscitation. Now there’s an alternative to standard Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation. It’s called Continuous Chest Compressions CPR, or Cardiocerebral Resuscitation, and since it doesn’t involve any mouth-tomouth resuscitation, one person can do it alone. This relatively simple, hands-only technique can double a heart-attack victim’s chances of survival. The new method focuses on keeping blood pumping through the heart and to the brain (notice the “cerebral” part of the name), which is crucial for the survival of the victim. It doesn’t do much good if you get the heart started but the brain has been without blood for too long. If you’re interested in learning this technique, there are three steps before you begin. Go online to www.heart.arizona. edu, and you’ll find a link right on the front page. Watch the video. Step two is to ask your doctor if you should learn this technique to use on anyone in your family who might have a heart condition, or on anyone else. Step three is to find a class in your community. While the video is better than nothing, for something this serious, a class is the best way to learn it properly.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) After much traveling this year, you’re due for some settled time with family and friends. Use this period to check out situations that soon will require a lot of serious decision-making. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Keep that keen Bovine mind focused on your financial situation as it begins to undergo some changes. Consider your money moves carefully. Avoid impulsive investments. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You’ll need to adjust some of your financial plans now that things are changing more quickly than you expected. All the facts you need haven’t yet emerged, so move cautiously. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Personal and professional relationships dominate this period. Try to keep things uncomplicated to avoid misunderstandings that can cause problems down the line. LEO (July 23 to August 22) That elusive goal you’d been hoping to claim is still just out of reach. But something else has come along that could prove just as desirable, if only you would take the time to check it out. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) This is a good time to get away for some much-needed rest and relaxation. You’ll return refreshed and ready to take on the workplace challenge that awaits you. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Confidence grows as you work your way through some knotty situations. Watch out for distractions from wellmeaning supporters that could slow things down. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Consider spending more time contemplating the possibilities of an offer before opting to accept or reject it. But once you make a decision, act on it. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You’re in a very strong position this week to tie up loose ends in as many areas as possible. Someone close to you has advice you might want to heed. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Congratulations. This is the week you’ve been waiting for: After a period of sudden stops and fitful starts, your plans can now move ahead with no significant disruptions. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You’re in an exceptionally strong position this week to make decisions on many still-unresolved matters, especially those involving close personal relationships. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) The new moon starts this week off with some positive movement in several areas.
