• 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. turn the page for more!

EDIBLES (continued): • 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 lip-smacking dish is the small intestines of pigs, boiled for several hours, then battered and fried and served with vinegar and hot sauce on the side.

PAW’S CORNER By Sam Mazzotta

Humidifier May Help Dog's Skin Allergy DEAR PAW'S CORNER: I have just read your column about "Cara," the 7-year-dog with skin allergies who itches and scratches terribly. My dog had this problem, too, and I was helped by the Tibetan Terrier Club of Canada with a very simple solution -- run a humidifier for at least eight hours per day in the room where "Cara" sleeps. I did this with my scratchy fellow, and the problem was solved within a few days! Neither my vet nor groomer had ever heard of such a thing. I also switched to Science Diet Sensitive Skin kibbles. No more scratching at my house. Hope you can pass this on to Cara's owner. -- Pattie R., via email DEAR PATTIE: Thanks for the helpful advice! A change in diet and the humidifier may have a positive effect on Cara's allergies. Pets can be very sensitive to seemingly benign dog or cat foods, and it's often a trial-and-error process to find a diet that

¥ On Sept. 26, 1957, “West Side Story,” composed by Leonard Bernstein, opens at the Winter Garden Theatre on Broadway. “West Side Story,” a reinterpretation of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, tells the tale of a love affair between Tony, who is Polish American, and Maria, a Puerto Rican, set against an urban background of interracial warfare. ¥ On Sept. 27, 1854, two ships collide off the coast of Newfoundland, killing 322 passengers and crew.

The 6-foot-5 Hudson rose to fame starring in such films as "Giant" (1956), for which he received an Academy Award nomination. (c) 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

EDIBLES (continued): • 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 deepfried. 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. • 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.

EDIBLES (continued): • 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).

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

Anxiety, Phobias and Panic Attacks DEAR DR. DONOHUE: What is the difference between anxiety and panic attack? I am claustrophobic, and I need to fly from the West Coast to the East Coast and back. I can't do so because of my problem. I have tried therapy several times, but it did not help. I do not want to go that route again. Can you give me some suggestions on how to be able to fly with this problem? Is there a medicine I could take before I get on the plane? -- Anon. ANSWER: Anxiety is excessive worry. In some cases, worry is appropriate. But with pathological anxiety, the worry is about things that don't merit worry or about imagined things that truly merit no concern. Under "anxiety disorders" are many different conditions, each with a slightly different set of symptoms. They all share some things in common. Panic attacks are the sudden onset of terror in places where such terror is inappropriate. The attack builds to a high point in a matter of 10 minutes or less. The attack can take place in a perfectly neutral situation, like shopping in the grocery store. During an attack, the heart beats fast, people become short of breath, and they often sweat and fear they are at death's door. Phobias are unreasonable fears of people, places and things that don't engender fear in others. Claustrophobia is the fear of being in an enclosed space, like an airplane. Phobias can bring on a panic attack. Maybe your phobia is not so much a fear of enclosed space but a fear of flying. I'm not certain these distinctions are of importance to you. The important thing for you is to uproot whatever it is that paralyzes you when you must board an airplane or to blunt it so you can function. Mental health professionals can get you over anxiety, panic attacks and phobias. I'm not positive what you mean by "going that route" again. Do you mean a detailed probing into your childhood and such matters? That isn't usually necessary. The doctor might prescribe a medicine that calms you and that you take only when needed. You won't become dependent on that medicine every day of your life. You use it only for the situation that throws you into such high anxiety. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My husband, 78 years old, fell off a ladder, and his head struck the sidewalk. I insisted he go to the emergency room, although he put up a fight. In the ER, the examining doctor gave him a very complete examination. He ordered a CT scan of his brain. The doctor found nothing wrong, and the scan was said to be normal. They sent us home.

This week we got a report of the scan. It says my husband has brain atrophy. I had to look up the meaning of atrophy. My husband was never an Einstein, but what is the significance of brain atrophy? He carries on a reasonable conversation, and he reads the paper carefully. Need we be concerned? I'm upset. He isn't. -- W.Y. ANSWER: Atrophy means shrinkage. If everyone your husband's age had a brain scan, most of their reports would say brain atrophy. It's something that happens with age. It doesn't imply any serious trouble. It shouldn't scare you or him. *** 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) 2011 North America Synd., Inc. All Rights Reserved

OVERCOMING THE ODDS: HELEN KELLER Nearly everyone has heard of Helen Keller and her triumph over her disabilities. This week, Tidbits brings you a few more details you might not know about this author, lecturer and political activist. • This amazing woman’s life began on a lovely Alabama homestead known as Ivy Green. Her father had served as a captain in the Civil War and worked as an editor for the local paper. Kellers’s grandmother was the second cousin of Robert E. Lee, and her paternal grandfather had been a Civil War hero as well. The family’s pleasant lifestyle changed forever when Keller was 19 months old, and she contracted a critical illness. Doctors called the mysterious illness “brain fever,” thought today to have been scarlet fever or meningitis. Although fairly short-lived, the illness left her blind and deaf. Keller’s parents thought she had recovered until they noticed there was no response from the toddler when the dinner bell was rung or when they leaned into their daughter’s face. • Although able to communicate with her family on a limited basis with signs, Keller was a very frustrated and difficult child, whose screaming tantrums kept the household on edge. Her parents were advised to put her into an institution. • Keller’s mother contacted the Perkins Institute for the Blind, whose director asked Anne Sullivan to become the child’s instructor. Sullivan herself had suffered the loss of most of her vision at age 5 and was a former student of the Institute. A miraculous surgery restored enough of Sullivan’s sight to enable her to read normal print for short durations. The 20-year-old reported to the Keller home when Keller was 7, and the two became companions for the next 49 years.

1. When was the last time before 2010 that no Los Angeles baseball team was in the major-league playoffs? 2. Three Seattle Mariners stole at least 25 bases each during the 2010 season. When was the last time the Mariners accomplished such a feat? 3. Name the last NFL expansion franchise before the Houston Texas in 2002 to win its inaugural regular-season game. 4. How many times has a University of Kentucky Wildcat basketball player been the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA Draft? 5. In the 2010-11 season, Teemu Selanne tallied 80 points, the third-highest total for a player 40 or older in NHL history. Who had the top two totals? 6. Who was the first NASCAR driver other than Richard Petty to win the Daytona 500 more than once? 7. Name the last left-handed tennis player before Petra Kvitova in 2011 to win the Wimbledon women's singles title. (c) 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

Tidbits of Kingman

By Samantha Weaver ¥ It was noted American wit Groucho Marx who made the following sage observation: "There's one way to find out if a man is honest -- ask him. If he says 'Yes,' you know he is a crook." ¥ When the city of Los Angeles was founded, it was given the name "El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora de los Angeles de Porciuncula," which translates to "The Town of Our Lady of the Angels of Porciuncula." Back then, in 1781, there were just 52 settlers to start what is now the second most populous city in the country. ¥ When speaking of dead languages, Latin is the one that probably comes to mind most often. It's not quite dead, though; it's the official language of Vatican City. ¥ Those who keep track of such things say that a professional ballet dancer goes through about 130 pairs of toe shoes in a single year. ¥ The yo-yo became popular in the United States after it was marketed by Donald F. Duncan Sr., a businessman from Chicago, but he didn't invent the toy. In 1928, Duncan was on a business trip to San Francisco when he saw Philippine immigrant Pedro Flores, who had gotten financing to manufacture the yo-yos and had trademarked the name, demonstrating how to use the toy. Duncan realized that the toy had the potential to be a huge success, so he paid Flores $5,000 for all the rights. Incidentally, the name "yo-yo" means "come-come" in the native language of the Philippines. ¥ If you're like the average American, showers account for nearly one-third of your home water use. *** Thought for the Day: "Any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae." -- Kurt Vonnegut Jr. (c) 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

Rate Info 928-897-2218 or 928-279-0288 HELEN KELLER (continued): • Sullivan began spelling words into Keller’s hand immediately upon her arrival, starting with the word for the gift she had brought Keller, D-O-L-L. It was a full month before Keller realized what her teacher was doing, when Sullivan signed W-A-T-E-R into Helen’s hand while holding it under water rushing from the pump. • After attending the Perkins Institute from age 8 to 14, Keller and Anne made the move to New York, where Keller attended a noted school for the deaf. Six years later, she enrolled at Radcliffe, where at the age of 24, she became the first deaf and blind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree. • Keller published her autobiography “The Story of My Life” while still in college at age 22. She followed up with “The World I Live In” five years later and went on to publish 10 more books and several articles. Keller was introduced to every U.S. President from Grover Cleveland up to Lyndon B. Johnson. LBJ awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1964. • Keller was responsible for introducing the Akita dog breed to the United States. While touring Japan, she obtained the dog Kamikaze-go, followed by another from the Japanese government, the older brother of her dog, named Kenzan-go. • Keller’s life was chronicled on the stage in “The Miracle Worker,” a play that was first made into a movie in 1962, starring Patty Duke as Keller. Mark Twain had come up with the description of Anne Sullivan as a “miracle worker.” After a rich and full life, Keller died just shy of her 88th birthday. Her likeness is on the 2003 Alabama state quarter.

THAT’S SO CHEESY! Most of us eat cheese several times a week but might not know what we’re really eating. This week, Tidbits brings you some facts about the process and a few different popular types. • Even though the United States is the world’s leading producer of cheese, (Wisconsin and California are the leaders in production), Greece and France consume the most per capita. The United States also doesn’t have the most distinct varieties. Great Britain produces about 700 different cheeses, and France and Italy produce about 400 each. • The flavor, color and texture of a cheese varies by type of milk used, the bacteria or acids used to separate the milk, the length of aging and the addition of certain herbs or particular molds. Most cheese is made from the milk of cows, sheep or goats, although the milk of yaks, horses, buffalo, camels and even reindeer can be used. One type of Mozzarella cheese comes from the milk of a water buffalo. A very rare cheese comes from a Swedish farm that raises three moose. Because the lactation period of a moose lasts only three months, this farm’s moose produce only 660 pounds (300 kg) of cheese per year, and it sells for about $2,000 per pound ($1,000 per kg). • If you want true Roquefort cheese, look for a red sheep on the foil label. This means it has been aged in limestone caves near the village of Roquefort-sur-Soulzon in the south of France. France’s King Charles VI gave sole rights for making this cheese to the village in 1411. Made from sheep’s milk, its distinctive blue veins come from the mold Pencillium roqueforti, which is injected into the cheese and grows within as it ages.
