• Temperatures on the moon vary from 273 degrees F (134 C) at the hottest time of the day to -244 degrees F (-153C) at night. A day on the moon from sunrise to sunrise is about 708 hours. It rotates on its axis at a speed of about 10 mph (16 km/hr). Compare this with Earth, which rotates at about 1,000 mph (1,609 km/hr). Yet both the moon and Earth complete their orbit in about the same amount of time. Turn the page for more!

• Driving around the circumference of the moon, 6,790 miles (10,864 km), is about equal to a trip from New York to London and back. The moon is about 27% the size of Earth, with an area of 14,658,000 square miles (37,932,000 sq. km). That’s about 9.4 billion acres.

• The moon is 225,745 miles (363,301 km) from Earth. If you were able to plan a trip there, it would be about a two-day trip on a rocket or a 625-hour ride on a 747 jet flying at 400 mph (644 km/hr). If you could drive your car there, it would take 135 days traveling at 70 mph (112 km/hr).

THE MOON (continued): • The average speed at which the moon orbits the Earth is 2,287 mph (3,680 km/hr.) • We only see about 59% of the moon’s surface from Earth. The pattern of the moon’s rotation causes the same side to face Earth at all times. What we frequently call the “dark side” of the moon (that part we can’t see) should really be referred to as the “far side.” It has only been photographed from spacecraft. The surface is covered by a mantle made up of an 825-milethick (1,330 km) layer of iron and magnesiumrich rock known as regolith. It’s been pounded by meteors, asteroids, and comets, which have created countless craters across its expanse. The widest craters are 140 miles (225 km) in diameter and are as deep as 15,000 ft. (4,500 m). There are mountains standing as high as 16,000 ft. (5,000 m). It’s estimated that the moon weighs about 81 quintillion tons (74 sextillion kg). • Although the moon looks round to us, it’s really egg-shaped. As we look at it, the smaller end of the egg is pointed toward us. It appears to be about the same size as the sun, but it’s actually 400 times smaller. Because the moon is 400 times closer to Earth than the sun is, the two appear about the same size. The moon is actually moving away from Earth about 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) a year. • Gravity on the moon is just 1/6 that of Earth. This means if you weigh 120 lbs. (54.4 kg) on Earth, you weigh only 20 lbs. (9.1 kg) on the moon. And if you don’t feel like dieting, remember that because of gravitational effects, you weigh just a bit less when the moon is directly overhead.

• The Apollo 11 crew collected lunar rocks weighing 842 lbs. (382 kg.). • A total of 12 men have walked on the moon. No one has done so since December, 1972 when Eugene Cernan of the final manned mission to the moon, Apollo 17, became the last man to set foot on the lunar surface. Apollo 17 was the sixth landing of humans on the moon.

• The Apollo 11 crew made history in July, 1969 when they made the first landing. On July 20, Neil Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the moon. There are very few Americans unfamiliar with his famous words, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Armstrong later reported that what he actually said was, “that’s one small step for a man…” The crew spent 21 hours and 36 minutes on the surface, with 2 hours and 36 minutes outside the craft, walking on the surface. The footprints of the Apollo 11 crew astronauts will remain for thousands of years, considering there is no wind or adverse weather to disturb them.

Recommended Reading: “The Historic Kentucky Kitchen” by Deirdre A. Scaggs and Andrew W. McGraw (University Press of Kentucky, $29.95) Reviewed by Larry Cox. Imagine being able to prepare heirloom recipes, some more than 150 years old, in the family kitchen. A fascinating new book gathers more than 100 such recipes drawn from handwritten books, diaries, scrapbook clippings and out-of-print cookbooks from the University of Kentucky Libraries Special Collection. The result is classic dishes with descriptions of each, including origin and helpful tips for the modern cook. In his foreward, Kentucky anthropologist John Van Willigen writes that cookbooks and their recipes are important because they provide an understanding of people’s lives. Since cookbooks didn’t really become common until the 19th century, many of the earliest recipes were handwritten, and even they have special meanings since they were the ones that were shared with friends and especially cherished. It is no secret that many of America’s better cooks, historically speaking, had Kentucky roots. These cooks prepared dishes that were made from ingredients produced locally, reflecting the rich, diverse heritage of the region’s culinary traditions. The recipes are divided into several main chapters: Egg and Cheese Dishes; Biscuits and Breads; Sides; Soups and Stews; Main Courses; Desserts; and Beverages. There also is a list of selected resources for the archival materials utilized. Some of the more interesting recipes include Nannie Clay McDowell’s Burgoo from 1882, which calls for “a chicken, piece of beef or any other meat you like”; Louise Ludlow Dudley’s 1876 Soda and Cream of Tartar Biscuits, a true Southern treat; and Frances Jewell McVey’s Spaghetti with Celery and Ham, circa 1920. With almost any cookbook, especially ones originating in the South, the real test is the desserts. The Parrish Family’s Lemon Custard Pie, circa 1850s, the Wasan Family’s Blackberry Jam Cake (1835-1856) and Mary M. Peter’s Pound Cake from 1889 are standouts. If you truly want a taste of culinary history, this excellent cookbook is one of the better sources available. (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

THE MOON (continued): • Do you know the difference between waxing and waning? During the phases of the moon’s cycle, when it appears to be getting larger, it’s called waxing, while waning is when it appears to get smaller. • If we didn’t have the moon, the oceans would have no tides. Tides rise because of the pull of the moon’s gravity. This gravity is strongest on the side of Earth nearest the moon, and it pulls up the water slightly, which is high tide. On the side of Earth farthest from the moon, the gravity is at its weakest, and the water moves a little away from the moon. • What does it take the create an eclipse? These phenomena occur only when the sun, Earth, and moon are all in a straight line and one blocks the light from another. The official term for this configuration of three celestial bodies is syzygy. A solar eclipse will occur during a new moon, when the moon is between the sun and Earth and blocks the sunlight. A lunar Expires 12/31/10 eclipse will occur at the time of a full moon, when Earth is between the sun and the moon, and blocks the sun’s light that would normally light up the moon. • According to folklore, if you see the slim crescent moon over your right shoulder, it’s considered good luck, while seeing it over your left shoulder is unlucky. Legend further states that if you move to a new home during a waning Expires 12/31/10.moon, you will never go hungry.

Taken from the book “Basic Rules” written by Victor R. Phillips, Walla Walla.

Now Dakota Johnson isn't sure she wants to move forward unless the script is improved. At press time, all kinds of actors were named to replace Hunnam, among them "White Collar" star Matt Bomer. Bomer is hot and sexy enough for the role, but producers are worried an "out" actor might not be accepted as Christian Grey. "The Vampire Diaries" Ian Somerhalder and "True Blood's" Alexander Skarsgard also were considered, as were newcomers Jamie Dornan, (of "Once Upon a Time") and Christian Cooke (Mercutio in the just released "Romeo & Juliet").

Sources say the dark horse is actually Ryan Gosling. It's going to take a powerful actor, with smoldering looks and a hot body, to do Grey justice, and Gosling is all those things. But, if they thought Hunnam gave them grief over the script, imagine what Gosling, who writes, directs and acts, will do! Whoever wins the role will have to avoid 50 shades of embarrassment if he can't pull it off! Here are 5 actors who could care less about not starring in "50 Shades of Grey" for a mere $125,000. They made Forbes’ list of the highest-paid actors in television this year. No. 1: Ashton Kutcher ($24 million), No. 2: Jon Cryer ($21 million), both of "Two and a Half Men." Followed by: No. 3 Ray Romano ($16 million), "Everybody (still) Loves Raymond"; and tied for No. 4: Neil Patrick Harris ("How I met Your Mother") and Mark Harmon, ("NCIS") with $15 million. There's nothing grey about their bank ledger sheets! (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Hollywood -- Why all the hubbub over "50 Shades of Grey" casting? The book was a good read for women who needed a jolt to their sex lives. The fact that it borders on pornography seems to be what made it a best seller. Even before Charlie Hunnam was cast opposite Dakota Johnson, speculation was wild. Reporters assumed Charlie bowed out because hardcore fans of the book couldn't see him as Christian Grey. Inside sources have revealed that Charlie didn't care about that; what he was concerned about was the script, which he felt was unplayable as it was. Charlie is also a writer, Charlie Hunnam and he was submitting suggestions to producers on a regular basis. He wasn't worried he couldn't handle the role; he was concerned the screenplay as written would be a disappointment. Universal Pictures told him--flat out--that he didn't have script approval. Add to that the insult of a mere $125,000 paycheck for a major film of this size. Charlie, who starred in "Pacific Rim" (which cost $190 million and grossed $407.5 million), would have finished shooting "Sons of Anarchy" before starting "50 Shades."

It might be meat cut from the thigh of a pig’s hind leg, or it might be a theatrical person showing off. But ham- might also be the beginning of a number of different terms, as you’ll soon see. • The word hamadryad can refer to a variety of things. In Greek mythology, it’s a wood nymph who inhabits a tree as its spirit. The nymph only lives as long as the tree. Hamadryad is also another word for the king cobra. Did you know that a cobra bite has a mortality rate of 50-60% if left untreated? A bite can be fatal in as little as 30 minutes. • Wrestlers are familiar with the hammerlock, that hold in which one arm of the opponent is twisted and forced upward behind the back. • “To be or not to be, that is the question.” Whose question was it? This famous phrase was uttered by Prince Hamlet in Shakespeare’s play The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, written around 1602. It chronicles the story of Hamlet’s plot to avenge the murder of his father King Hamlet by his brother Claudius. Hamlet questions whether it is worthwhile to stay alive when life contains so many hardships. Two of the most famous actors to portray Hamlet on stage were Junius Brutus Booth and Edwin Booth, father and brother of John Wilkes Booth who assassinated 16th U.S. president Abraham Lincoln.

HAM IT UP! (continued): • We see his face nearly every day on the U.S. ten-dollar bill, but who was Alexander Hamilton? One of America’s founding fathers, Hamilton graduated from what is now Columbia University, served in the Revolutionary War, was elected to the Continental Congress, practiced law, and founded the Bank of New York. He is commemorated on our currency because he was the first U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, and was instrumental in establishing the U.S. Mint. In 1804, after Hamilton made derogatory remarks about Vice President Aaron Burr, Burr claimed his honor had been attacked, and challenged Hamilton to a duel. Burr shot Hamilton in the lower abdomen, mortally wounding him, and Hamilton died the next day. Ironically, the dueling site, along the Hudson River at Weehawken, New Jersey, was the same site where Hamilton’s eldest son had been killed in a duel three years earlier. • The 25 species of hamsters range in size from 13.4 inches (34 cm) long to dwarf hamsters measuring 2 inches (5.5 cm) long. The Syrian species has the shortest gestation period of any placental mammal at only 16 to 18 days, yet they’ve been known to have litters of 20 pups! A hamster’s eyesight is very poor and it relies on scent to find its way. • That tiny row of hooks that connects the front and back wings of a bee is known as a hamulus. A human’s hamulus is a similar hook-like apparatus on our inner ear’s cochlea. • Are you clumsy, awkward, butterfingered, or lacking dexterity? Then you’re said to be ham-fisted.
