• The model dad of the 1950s was Jim Anderson, a salesman and manager of the General Insurance Company. Robert Young portrayed Jim for 203 episodes beginning in 1954 in Father Knows Best, a program with the ideal family and a moral lesson each week. Jim was the husband of housewife Margaret and father to Betty, Bud, and Kathy. The show was not successful its first season and was cancelled. CBS was inundated with viewers’ protest letters, and the series was picked up by NBC, who moved it to an earlier, family-friendly time slot, where it remained for the next five years.

85% of women are wearing the wrong size bra....Are you?

They solved sibling disputes, dispensed wisdom, and were pillars of the community. These were our favorite fictional dads, the ones we watched on the small screen while we were growing up. • For 203 episodes, Michael Landon played the pioneer Charles Ingalls, loosely based on the Little House series of books penned by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Little House on the Prairie aired from 1974 to 1982, and chronicled the family’s life on their Walnut Grove, Minnesota farm in the 1870s and 1880s. The real-life Charles loved traveling and moved his family six times. In addition to portraying Ingalls, Landon directed over 40% of the episodes. Charles Ingalls holds the #4 spot on the TV Guide list of the greatest TV dads.

• Another classic 1950s dad was Ward Cleaver, head of the family on Leave it to Beaver, husband of June and father of Wally and Theodore (the Beaver). Ward was a native of Shaker Heights, Ohio, who graduated from State College in Philosophy and served in World War II as a Seabee. During the series’ duration from 1957 to 1963, Ward was most frequently seen in his business suit and white shirt, toting his briefcase to his job at the trust company, although he drove his Plymouth Fury to Mayfield’s country club golf course on the weekends. In real life, actor Hugh Beaumont was a licensed Methodist preacher, who opted for a career in show business. After retiring, he began a new career as a Christmas tree farmer in Minnesota.

• Baby boomers will remember the trials and tribulations of single parenthood from the long-running series, My Three Sons. Steven Douglas ranks #7 on TV Guide’s list of the greatest TV dads. Played by actor Fred McMurray from 1960 to 1972, Steve was a widowed aeronautical engineer raising three boys on his own, assisted by cranky Uncle Charlie. MacMurray was the only cast member to appear in every one of the series’ 380 episodes. The sons changed over the years, with some growing up and moving away and others being adopted, and the addition of triplet boys to one son’s family in keeping with the “three sons” theme.

• Single dad Andy Taylor served as the sheriff and justice of the peace of Mayberry, North Carolina on CBS from 1960 to 1968 on The Andy Griffith Show. Fans will remember the opening credits that featured Andy and son Opie strolling down a country lane, fishing poles in hand, to a whistled tune called “The Fishing Hole.” Andy put up with his harebrained deputy Barney Fife, who also happened to be his cousin. Around town, Andy played checkers at Floyd’s Barber Shop, visited Gomer Pyle and his cousin Goober down at the filling station, and romanced schoolteacher Helen Crump. At home, he enlisted the help of his Aunt Bee for household chores and assistance with Opie (played by Ron Howard, who went on to movie directing fame.)

ARIES (March 21-April 19): When someone asks you to put it on the line, they don’t expect you to get out the clothespins and laundry. Be honest with yourself - and others - in the week to come. Don’t beat around the bush. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): During the first half of the week, your decision-making skills are at their best, especially when dealing with finances. Be sure to get the best of everything; quality should not be confused with quantity. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): In the week to come, you could realize that it’s not what you look at, but what you see that is important. Accept every opportunity to better yourself, even if it is dressed up and disguised as hard work. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You might be partial to material success, but are willing to get in touch with your spiritual side in your free time. There may be some things going on behind the scenes that will work out in your favor this week. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): This week, events or friends could encourage you. Someone could offer you an incentive to begin a new study, join a team sports program or travel. Every opportunity contains a hidden benefit. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Speak gently. Develop the habit of speaking calmly and other people will begin to listen to what you say. During the week ahead, you can improve your reputation and engender good will through teamwork. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Some people are proud of good housekeeping, but you might take pride in good heart-keeping. In the week ahead, put your best efforts into mending fences and head off misunderstandings in advance. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Play to your strengths. The more you stretch mental and physical muscles, the stronger you will be. You may earn respect for insisting upon ethical and responsible behavior in the upcoming week SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth and you won’t need to remember stories. The upcoming week provides opportunities to clear the air and put relationships back on track. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You might be wise to remember in the week ahead that it is often better to cross the line than to sign the dotted one. Just because everything is going well does not mean you can let down your guard AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Make hay while the sun shines. In the early part of the week, you will be luckier and more content than usual and may have opportunities to express your creative talents or enjoy family entertainments. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): An insight can incite a riot of thought. You might be tempted to take impulsive action at the drop of a hat in the week ahead, but by remaining calm, cool, and collected you can honor commitments, too.

In the world of beauty, Mary Kay is a household name. How much do you know about this talented and successful entrepreneur? Follow along and see! • Texan-born Mary Kathlyn Wagner married Ben Rogers at age 17, and the couple had three children before he headed off to the service during World War II. While Rogers was away, Mary Kay sold books door-todoor, amassing sales of $25,000 in just six months. When he returned in 1945, the couple divorced. She supported herself and her children by working for Stanley Home Products, conducting home demonstration parties. • In 1952, Mary Kay left Stanley, taking a position with the World Gift Company as its national training director. After nearly a decade with World Gift, she bid for a promotion, but was passed over in favor of a man she herself had trained. She resigned in protest, with plans to write a book that would help women succeed in business. That book became the business plan for her own dream company. • The year 1963 was an eventful one for Mary Kay, beginning with a new marriage at age 45. She then took her $5,000 savings and leased a 500-square-foot storefront in Dallas. She bought skin care formulas from a tanner who had created them while working on hides. Her products were packaged in her favorite pastel pink. Tragedy struck a month before the scheduled store opening, when her new husband died of a heart attack, just one month into their marriage. Mary Kay’s 20-year-old son stepped in to help launch the business.

Auto Bits The Parts of Your Auto Air Conditioning System If your auto air conditioning system is giving you problems, you probably need the help of a specialist. However, sometimes you can fix some of the more minor problems yourself, or at least arrange for a stopgap measure until you actually get the time to visit a car repair shop. For that you need to be familiar with the inner workings of your auto air conditioning system, and be acquainted with the more common problems that such systems face. The first thing you need to realize is that the A/C in your car is basically just a fridge. You have mostly the same parts, with a design change. Given below are the most common parts of a car air conditioner:-

The Compressor: - The compressor pressurizes the refrigerant and circulates it throughout your car. Compressors usually malfunction if there is a leak in the system The Condenser: - The condenser’s job is twofold. First, as can be guessed from its name, the condenser cools the refrigerant by removing excess heat from it. Second, it catches any debris coming from the compressor. Condensers are expensive and cannot be replaced frequently; at least not without causing a severe dent in your pocket, so it’s better to clean and repair them when necessary. The Refrigerant: - This is what collects the heat from inside your vehicle and dumps it outside. In modern cars it’s a substance called R134a, whereas older cars have something called Freon. Freon has been gradually phased out because of the damage it causes to the ozone layer. The Expansion Valve: - This is a type of nozzle that controls the pressure and flow of the refrigerant. The Evaporator: - This transfers the heat from your car to the refrigerant, effectively cooling your car. These are the basic parts of your car air conditioner, and while knowing them will not allow you to do the work of a skilled auto technician, they can help identify the more common A/C related problems and decide which one needs immediate attention. For those looking to fix their auto air conditioning, Tucson has quite a few options. However, the one name that most auto enthusiasts of the area trust is Brakemax. They provide complete car care of the highest quality, and if you love your car and would not entrust it to anyone but the best, you need to visit and check out their services immediately. by: Gardner Wilkinson @

MARY KAY ASH (continued): • The Dallas store opened with nine salespeople. It generated a profit its first year, and by the end of the second year had sold nearly $1 million worth of products. In 1968, the company went public. Mary Kay offered her employees incentive programs for their home demonstrations, including vacations, jewelry, and automobiles. Known for her love of the color pink, beginning in 1969, Mary Kay began giving pink Cadillacs to her top sales performers. The first cars were painted the color of one of her products, a shade of blush called Mountain Laurel. Twenty-five years later she had awarded 7,000 cars with a value of $100 million. The particular shade of pink used to paint the cars belongs exclusively to Mary Kay, Inc. and is not available to other customers. A General Motors dealer will not repaint any outside vehicle Mary Kay’s pink. GM estimates they have produced more than 100,000 pink Cadillacs for Mary Kay. • Mary Kay became the author of three bestsellers along her journey. The third book You Can Have It All, published in 1995, achieved best-seller status just days after its launch. • From humble beginnings of nine salespeople, Mary Kay representatives now number more than 2.4 million. From second-year sales of $1 million, worldwide sales in more than 35 markets are close to $3 billion annually. Fortune magazine has included Mary Kay, Inc. on its list of “The 100 Best Companies to Work for in America” and “The Most Admired Corporations in America.” Mary Kay was a devoted fundraiser for charities, establishing foundations to combat domestic violence and to fund cancer research. • Mary Kay retained her CEO position until 1987, but remained active in the company until 1996 when she suffered a stroke. She passed away in 2001. The tremendous success of her company lives on, thanks to a personal belief of hers – “People are a company’s greatest asset.”

• It wasn’t the plan for Eight is Enough’s Tom Bradford to be a single dad. The series started out in 1977 with actress Diana Hyland starring as his wife, but Hyland fell seriously ill after taping just four episodes, and passed away 12 days after the first episode aired. Tom remarried a schoolteacher during the series’ second season. Tom was a columnist for a Sacramento newspaper, a storyline based on the real life of syndicated columnist Thomas Braden, a father of eight children who wrote a book about his parenting adventures.

Bonanza endured 14 seasons from 1959 to 1973, frequently ranking as TV’s number one program. Ben was widowed three times, with one son from each marriage – Adam, Hoss, and Little Joe. His first wife was from Boston, where Ben had been a seaman and later a shop owner specializing in supplies for merchant vessels. Newly widowed, he and Adam moved out West. Ben ranks #2 on TV Guide’s list of greatest TV dads.

• Another widower, magazine publisher Tom Corbett, was kept busy raising his six-year-old son on The Courtship of Eddie’s Father. Eddie occupied his days scheming to find the ideal wife for his dad.

When Bixby had a disagreement with the producer over the direction of the show, it was cancelled after its third season.

• It was the story of a man named Brady from 1969 to 1974. Mike Brady, that is – architect and father of three sons, who married Carol, mother of three daughters, to form one of America’s favorite blended families. The program was created by producer Sherwood Schwartz after he read a newspaper article in the late ‘60s stating that nearly 30% of families had a least one child from a previous marriage. More than 450 girls and boys were interviewed by the producer before narrowing the number down to the six Brady children. Although Mike was considered one of TV’s greatest dads (#14 on the TV Guide list), in actuality, actor Robert Reed strongly disliked the role and was difficult to work with on the set. He had been trained as a Shakespearean actor at London’s Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, and viewed the show as a silly sitcom and beneath his acting abilities. However, Reed genuinely liked his co-stars and would even

Pet Bits Q: My 8-year-old Golden Doodle has gotten bigger than my 5-year-old Shiba Inu. He doesn’t bite the Shiba, but kind of nibbles at her, and even tries to haul her around by her collar. Sometimes he even does this at night, so I crate him. Is there anything I can do curb this behavior? - D.S., Cyberspace

Adoptables Gertrude, 294972, 4 year old spayed female, grey tabby domestic longhair cross. Gertude has a story to tell you! Gerti first came to the shelter as a stray in April. Heavily matted and missing an eye, Gertrude was still an outgoing, social and playful cat that was eager to get your attention. Gerti soon went into foster with an appointment for surgery to spay her and close up her open eye socket. Unfortunately Gertrude is a crafty kitty, and full of mischief, and found her way out a window to a balcony, and off the balcony into the wild. After setting live traps, putting up posters and cruising the neighbourhood, shelter staff and the foster family had almost lost hope. Lo and behold, two weeks later Gertrude waltzed up the steps of her foster home as if nothing had happened. Now recovered from her surgery, Gertrude is ready for a new home. Gertrude is a bit bossy, but does get along with other cats. She since only has one eye, Gertrude will need to be an indoor only cat.

A: “Your Golden is an adolescent, and like all adolescents everywhere, he thinks he knows everything and his judgment is terrible,” says Marjie Alonso, IAABC executive director and Boston, MAbased dog behavior consultant. “Crating the dog overnight is a very good idea as a management tool. The more often you allow your dog to practice this behavior, the more often you’ll see it, and better he’ll become at it. “If you haven’t done so already, enroll your dog in a positive reinforcement dog training class where you can focus on learning simple skills you can employ at home like ‘sit,’ ‘stay’ and ‘down’ to prevent the Golden from tormenting the Shiba. Also offer lots of play time, so your young Golden has an appropriate outlet for all that energy.”

take them on trips during their summer break. The storylines were drawn from the producer’s own family as well as those of the cast members. It must have seemed very realistic to many viewers, as fan mail from children frequently arrived, asking if they could live with the Brady family, due to troubles within their own families. • A 1930s family living in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia was led by John Walton, who ran a sawmill on the family property. In actuality, The Waltons was filmed entirely in California, split between the Warner Brothers Studios and the nearby Angeles National Forest. John Walton and his wife Olivia raised their seven children through the Great Depression and World War II for nine seasons on CBS television. The series was based on creator Earl Hamner’s childhood in the tiny community of Schuyler, Virginia, and Hamner served as the narrator of each episode. CBS executives wanted Henry Fonda to portray John Walton, but when he turned it down, Ralph Waite was chosen.

• The bigoted and narrow-minded Archie Bunker was the guy television viewers from 1971 to 1979 loved to hate. The Bunker family included Archie, his wife Edith, daughter Gloria, and son-in-law Mike “Meathead” Stivic living in the borough of Queens in New York City. As a young person, Archie was an excellent baseball player, and had a dream of playing for the New York Yankees, a dream he gave up when forced to drop out of high

Canadian Tid-bits Lakes combined, and at times held more water than all the lakes in the world today.

▶ Actor Leslie Nielsen’s brother Erik, (1926 - 2010) was the Deputy Prime Minister of Canada, from 1984 to 1986. ▶ Selkirk, Manitoba, is known as the Catfish Capital of the World due to the many catfish in the Red River nearby. In 1986 they built a huge

fiberglass catfish, measuring some 7.6 m (25 ft) long. In 1993 it was named Chuck the Channel Cat, commemorating local fisherman Chuck Norquay who drowned while fishing in the Red River. ▶ The town of Wawa, Ontario, is named after the Ojibwa word wewe meaning ‘wild goose.’ In 1960 they built a metal statue of a Canada goose that’s 8.5 m (28 ft) tall. Some prankster once painted huge goose footprints on the Trans Canada highway nearby.

TV DADS (continued):

school during the Great Depression to help support his family. Archie served in Italy during World War II for 22 months, where he was awarded the Purple Heart. After the war, he worked on a loading dock where he eventually became a foreman. Every race, religion, and political party were the target of his bad-tempered barbs, many of which were delivered from his favorite armchair, which is now exhibited in the Smithsonian. Many of Archie’s insults were directed at his long-suffering wife Edith, who he called Dingbat and frequently ordered to “Stifle it!” Norman Lear, who conceived the series, acknowledged that Archie’s behavior mirrored that of Lear’s father toward his mother. • The life of wealthy carefree bachelor Bill Davis was dramatically changed when his brother and sister-in-law were killed in an auto accident. From 1966 to 1971, the series Family Affair recounted the adventures of this successful Manhattan civil engineer who became the guardian of twins Buffy and Jody and their teenaged sister Cissy. Uncle Bill was assisted in his efforts by his stuffy English valet Mr. French. Six-year-old Buffy’s favorite doll Mrs. Beasley was so popular that Mattel began production of the blond-haired talking doll in 1967, and was still experiencing favorable sales two years after the show was cancelled. • Ranked as TV’s biggest hit of the 1980s, The Cosby Show featured Bill Cosby as Heathcliff Huxtable, head of a Brooklyn family from 1984 to 1992. Cliff was an obstetrician married to attorney wife Clair raising four daughters and a son. Cosby based the series on his own family – he also had four daughters and a son. His son Ennis was found to be dyslexic, and that was written into the Huxtable saga, as son Theo was diagnosed. Fictional wife Clair’s maiden name was Hanks, that of Cosby’s wife Camille. Dr. Huxtable was the son of a noted jazz trombonist, played by actor Earle Hyman, who was actually only 11 years older than Cosby. The role of the oldest daughter was given to Sabrina LeBeauf, who narrowly edged out a 21-year-old newcomer named Whitney Houston.
