• It was noted wit Ambrose Bierce who made the following observation: “All are lunatics, but he who can analyze his delusion is called a philosopher.” • You might be surprised to learn that in January 2004, the Food and Drug Administration approved the use of maggots as a medical device for cleaning wounds. • Presidential security was not always as formidable as it is today. In 1913, former President Theodore Roosevelt was walking down a Milwaukee street, heading to a speech he was scheduled to give. A man named John Schrank pulled out a gun and shot toward Roosevelt, who staggered but did not fall. There was no blood evident, and Roosevelt, who was campaigning for a second term, insisted on delivering his speech. When he pulled from a coat pocket the 100 pages on which his speech was written, he saw a bullet hole through the sheets of paper. Still determined to carry on, he gave his speech before going to the hospital, where it was discovered that the bullet had penetrated four inches into his body. After the perpetrator was arrested, it became evident that Schrank was insane; he claimed that President William McKinley had revealed to him in a dream that Roosevelt was responsible for McKinley’s assassination. Schrank spent the next 32 years in an insane asylum. • If you see a group of flamingoes together in one place, it might be handy to know that the appropriate collective noun is a “flamboyance.” • The instruments used by professional flute players are usually made from precious metals -- either sterling silver, 14-carat gold or platinum. © 2018 King Features Synd., Inc.

• “Here’s an awesome way to clean silver. Take an aluminum foil pan -- the disposable kind -- and line it with a piece of aluminum foil; sprinkle in some salt -- I use sea salt, but any kind will do -- then add an equal amount of baking soda, and fill the container with boiling water. Put your silver, including jewelry, into the mix -- it cleans instantly! Of course, you’ll have to turn the larger pieces, so be careful not to burn yourself.” -- L.N. in B.C., Canada • “With summer storms and hurricane season right around the corner, power outages are a very real possibility. Whenever I have any extra room in my freezer, I fill some containers with water and freeze them. If the power were to go out, it’ll keep my frozen foods good longer, or become water to drink if needed.

Belts and hoses are important components in your vehicle. If something goes wrong with them, you will have problems. By paying attention to the belts and hoses, you can help keep your vehicle running its best. You don’t need to hire a professional to check your belts and hoses. You can do it yourself. You just need to make sure the engine is cold. Belts operate the alternator, power steering pump, water pump and air conditioner compressor. It is important to start with a visual inspection of the belts and a testing of the tension. Look for cracking, 1.

some of them, along with some maintenance tips: — The drive belt or fan belt powers the power steering pump, air injection pump, air conditioning compressor and mechanical cooling fan. There are two types: the V-belt and the serpentine belt. The belts should be checked when the oil is changed. Look for signs of cracking (random cracks on the ribs of a serpentine belt are normal and don’t require an immediate replacement), missing pieces, splitting or separating layers.‚ — The timing belt keeps the crankshaft and camshaft synchronized, which, in turn, keeps the valve operation matched to the position of the pistons. There are some engines in which the belt operates other parts, such as the water and oil pump and balance shafts. For this, manufacturers usually have a recommended mileage for replacement. Failure to follow this recommendation could result in major engine damage. Because it is easier to access the water pump, tensioning pulleys and timing belt sprockets when the timing belt is removed, you may want to consider replacing these parts as well. After checking the belts, you may check the hosesthe radiator hoses (upper and lower), heater hose and bypass hose. Look for small leaks, and if you find some, use duct tape as a temporary patch. If you notice the upper radiator hose has collapsed, you have a defective radiator pressure cap that will need to be replaced. Test the heater and radiator hoses by firmly squeezing them. If they are hard, make a crunching sound, are extremely soft or sticky, or are covered with oil, they need to be replaced. You should check the coolant hoses twice a year, in the spring and fall. You also need to check the hose connections, but only when the engine is warm. Drive the vehicle around for a while and then pop the hood. If you see swollen spots in the coolant hoses, this indicates areas of weakness and the hoses need to be replaced. You should also check for cold leaks. These generally seal themselves when the hoses get warm and expand, so wait until the engine has cooled and look for dry coolant cracks or small damp spots down the radiator, thermostat housing, hose ends or firewall. Belts and hoses are not difficult to maintain or overly expensive to replace. If you choose to ignore a defective belt or hose, however, it could lead to more expensive problems. It’s a good idea to practice preventive maintenance, and if you aren’t comfortable doing that yourself, to turn your vehicle over to a reliable mechanic.

want brown leaves, then paint the walls brown. While the base coat is drying, determine the arrangement of objects in your pattern and attach them to the walls using spray adhesive. Perhaps you want the polka dots spaced out every five inches. Perhaps you want a more random placement. Next, you need to select a topcoat. This can be paint or glaze. For a solid effect, roll paint onto the walls over the objects. For a mottled effect, sponge watered-down paint or glaze onto the walls over the objects. Let the walls dry and then remove the objects, revealing the shapes underneath. For further definition and depth, add some more paint to the shapes. Creating painted wallpaper takes some work, but for those who don’t like the real thing, it is worth it. Just think. When your toddler leaves a sticky print on the wall, you won’t have to worry about it. You can just wipe it off with a damp cloth.

How Low Is Too-Low Blood Pressure? DEAR DR. ROACH: You have written many articles about high blood pressure, but I want to know about low blood pressure. What is normal? What is low, and what is dangerously low? I have a heart issue for which I take medication. I want to know if my blood pressure is too low. -- Anon. ANSWER: Among young adults, only 5 percent of men will have a blood pressure below 110/60 or so, and for young women, it’s 90/46. Blood pressure tends to go up with age, so low blood pressure numbers are higher for older adults. For people with healthy hearts, the only time we worry about low blood pressure is if there are symptoms, and the most common symptoms are lightheadedness and fainting. In people with congestive heart failure, low blood pressure usually is not concerning in itself, but be-

cause it might indicate that the heart is getting weaker. However, many of the medications used for CHF reduce blood pressure, which can even limit the amount of medication that can be used. In people with blockages in their arteries, too low a blood pressure can cause inadequate blood flow to parts of the heart and cause angina symptoms. The blood pressure is dangerously low when a disease process is causing the low blood pressure. In extreme cases, low blood pressure is one of the most dangerous signs of shock. But in general, for healthy people, low blood pressures are not worrisome. ••• DR. ROACH WRITES: I have received more letters about hearing loss than I would have believed possible. Most of the advice was consistent, so let me review what both professionals and people who have been through the process of getting hearing aids have advised. First, have realistic expectations about what a hearing aid can do. It does not make your hearing what it was 50 years ago. Loud noises can be painfully overamplified. Second, find someone who really knows what he or she is doing. The people whose technicians spent a lot of time teaching, discussing the different options and adjusting them after purchase were the most satisfied. (The adjustment period can take weeks.) A referral from a satisfied friend could be a good place to start. Several professionals recommended that your audiologist be certified by the American Speech, Language and Hearing Association. Third, be prepared to spend some money. Good hearing aids are expensive. More expensive doesn’t always mean better, but most of my readers felt that the money they spent on hearing aids was well worth it. I’m sure there are some great ones, and some not as great. Many veterans wrote me to tell me about their (mostly) good experiences at the Department of Veterans Affairs. Fourth, try many models. Some people prefer in-theear, some over-the-ear. Because it takes a long time to get used to them, you need to wear them pretty much constantly. Both your ears and your brain need time to adjust, so be patient. Finally, several people and one chapter president wrote to me about the Hearing Loss Association of

Page 9

America ( and the benefit they gained from visiting their local chapter and sharing their experiences. •••

• On May 26, 1897, the first copies of the classic vampire novel “Dracula,” by Irish writer Bram Stoker, appear in London bookshops. In 1890, Stoker published his first novel, “The Snake’s Pass.” He would go on to publish 17 novels in all, but it was “Dracula” that eventually earned him literary fame. • On May 21, 1927, American pilot Charles A. Lindbergh lands at Le Bourget Field in Paris, successfully completing the first solo, nonstop trans-Atlantic flight. The flight of the Spirit of St. Louis between New York and Paris took 33-1/2 hours. Six men had died attempting the same flight. • On May 23, 1934, famed fugitives Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker are killed when police ambush their car near Sailes, Loui-


siana. They died in a two-minute fusillade of 167 bullets. • On May 25, 1935, at Forbes Field in Pittsburgh, Babe Ruth hits his 714th home run, a record for career home runs that would stand for almost 40 years. • On May 22, 1958, American singer Jerry Lee Lewis arrives in England as a newly married man, with his pretty young wife in tow. Within days, it was revealed that his new wife, Myra Gail Lewis, was actually only 13 years old and was his first cousin once-removed. • On May 27, 1972, Soviet President Leonid Brezhnev and U.S. President Richard Nixon, meeting in Moscow, sign the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (SALT) agreements. At the time, these agreements were the most far-reaching attempts ever to control nuclear weapons. • On May 24, 1991, the critically acclaimed road movie “Thelma and Louise” debuts in theaters, stunning audiences with a climactic scene in which its two heroines drive off a cliff into the Grand Canyon in a vintage 1966 Ford Thunderbird convertible. © 2018 Hearst Communications, Inc.
