Is your personality the result of the chronological place in your family? Psychologists have had theories on the issue of birth order for decades, and this week, Tidbits studies up on their findings. Follow along and see if you agree with their conclusions!

Auto Specials!

• Renowned Austrian psychiatrist Alfred Adler was a pioneer in the area of birth order in the early 1900s, and was one of the first to present theories that family placement affects personality and how individuals deal with life’s issues. He believed that parents tend to treat children differently based on the order of birth. • Adler’s theory maintained that first-born children receive an abundance of attention, but only until the second child is born. When a new baby arrives, the first-born may feel unloved, believing he or she has lost the mother’s love to the new baby. Adler called this being “dethroned,” and claimed it had a lasting effect on the individual. The loss of attention might cause the first child to become fearful, highachieving, anxious, or competitive. He might have a need to retain praise from parents and become prone to perfectionism, making him vulnerable to stress.

BIRTH ORDER (continued): • The accomplishments of the first-born, such as walking and talking, are monumental in the eyes of parents and the child is pushed to achieve at a faster pace. First-time parents worry if the child isn’t advancing as they expect and might pressure for success. Parents might push the child to carry out the dreams they had for themselves, and are often harder on first-borns. • Because first-borns often feel the need to be perfect in everything they do, they are usually well-organized, goal-oriented, and respectful of rules. First-borns tend to become people pleasers, ambitious, and aggressive.

• First-borns dominate the list of Nobel Prize winners, National Merit scholars, and astronauts. A few famous first-borns are Winston Churchill, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, and Harry Truman. • When a second child arrives, the first-born often becomes the “helper.” This results in a desire to protect and lead, and they become nurturers and caretakers. • The behavior of a middle child is often the result of the fact that they have never been “in the spotlight.” Their older sibling seems to be forging ahead with achievements while the younger one is the “entertainer” of the family, making the middle-born feel upstaged, left out, and insecure. The middle child often tries hard to be different from the older sibling. Because they sometimes feel ignored, they branch out on their own, becoming mentally tough and independent. They develop good social skills as a result, and often turn to their peer group rather than family for support.

• It was Danish physicist Niels Bohr who made the following sage observation: “The opposite of a correct statement is a false statement. The opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound truth.” • It was in 1954 that the first TV dinner was introduced. • When Walter Chrysler started his own automobile manufacturing company in 1925, after having been employed by Buick and the Overland Motor Company, he insisted that all of the cars turned out by his company be oversized. It seems that Chrysler was a large man and wanted to be sure he could fit comfortably into any of the models produced in his name. • You might have heard that the band on the doomed ocean liner Titanic played music on the deck while the ship sank. But you probably don’t know what song they were playing at the very end. According to witnesses, it was a popular British waltz called “Autumn.” • If you’re planning a trip to Sweden, keep this point of law in mind: In that country, it’s illegal to teach a seal to balance a ball on its nose. • In 1983, a Polish director named Zbignew Rybcyznski won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short. After he had been presented with his award, he stepped outside to smoke a cigarette. When he tried to re-enter, a security guard wouldn’t let him in because the guard believed anyone wearing sneakers with a tuxedo couldn’t be an attendee of the august Academy Awards. Incensed, Rybcyznski kicked the guard and landed himself in jail. • Pigeons have the distinction of being only birds that don’t have to raise their heads to swallow when they drink water. *** Thought for the Day: “Luck is the residue of design.” -- Branch Rickey (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

• Adler believed that middle children are more cooperative because they’ve grown up sharing attention. This also makes them more flexible and diplomatic, skills that allow them to thrive in business. The middles are also frequently good at peacemaking and negotiating – they’re good at seeing both sides of an issue! Fifty-two percent of U.S. presidents were middle children. • Because parents start to relax by the second child and become less demanding, middle children tend to have a more relaxed attitude toward life than their older sibling. Some famous middles include David Letterman, Richard Nixon, Madonna, and Princess Diana. • A recent study indicates that first-born children receive about 3,000 hours more time with parents between age 4 and 13 than their younger siblings. Perhaps this is why first-borns are more pressured to succeed, as parents “loosen up” as more children arrive. Parents also spend less time with each arriving child because they get more proficient at child-rearing tasks. • The baby of the family is often more pampered than his older siblings. Adler believed this was one of the worst actions of a parent, leading to dependence, selfishness, and irresponsibility. He theorized that babied children easily become manipulative and temperamental. The youngest child often gets more attention because the older children have grown to different developmental stages and are somewhat independent.


• The baby of the family is often the entertainer or the charmer and likes being in the limelight. He is more carefree and affectionate, and has a good sense of humor, but usually seems to be more rebellious than his older siblings.

2. In a large bowl, combine baking mix and sugar substitute. Add milk, sour cream, egg and coconut extract. Mix gently just to combine. Fold in chocolate chips, pecans and coconut. Spread batter into prepared baking dish. 3. Bake for 20 to 24 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Place baking dish on a wire rack and let set for at least 5 minutes.

• The baby tends to be less responsible and more adventurous, taking part in risky activities and aggressive sports. He is the daredevil of the family. A recent study points out that those major league baseball players who are the youngest are 10 times more likely to steal bases than first-born players. • The down side of being the baby is that parents often don’t give a lot of attention or praise to the milestones, since tying shoes and riding a twowheeler for the first time have become “old hat” to them.

• An only child has the advantage of receiving all the attention and resources. This often results in high achievers and better performance on intelligence tests. Single children learn how to play alone, which can lead to the development of vivid imaginations and fantasies. They also tend to be very close to their parents. • A recent study indicates that being raised with siblings makes for more healthy relationships later in life. The American Sociological Association says that the more siblings you have, the better your chance of a long and happy marriage, since you’ve developed skills in conflict negotiation and personality clashes. The research points to a reduction in the likelihood of divorce by 2% per sibling. Which child is the least likely to get married? Studies indicated that would be the only child. • More families are opting to have only one child now than ever before. In 1970, 33% of families had only one child. That percentage is about 43% today. Perhaps part of the reason is the amount of money it requires to rear a child to his 18th birthday. That figure is close to $300,000, which does not include saving for college.

• Famous babies of the family include Jim Carrey, Billy Crystal, Eddie Murphy, Steve Martin, and Rosie O’Donnell, which makes sense since babies like being center stage and making people laugh.

Researchers say first born children appear to be more prone to anxiety or depression later in life. This is likely due to their feelings of excessive responsibility, and setting unrealistic standards for themselves. They also become very discouraged by what they perceive as unmet expectations or failures.

All animals have a chakra system and even though this news letter is about dogs, all animals have relatively the same chakra systems. They all have the 7 main chakras and then they have minor and bud chakras. We are going to talk about them today so everyone knows where they are and what they support in an animal.

The main centers are the Crown, Third Eye, Throat, Heart, Solar Plexus, Spleen, and Root Chakras. The Minor Chakras and Bud Chakras are smaller, but are essential to the vitality of the animal.

Sharrie Copeland

53924 E Ferndale Rd, Milton-Freewater 541-938-5394 •


Usually just Major Chakras are seen as colorful energy centers. The colors of these centers vary from animal to animal and species to species. The minor and bud chakras might be seen as just shimmering or sparkling white changing to other colors. For example, the bud chakras of the ears might be seen as pale yellow but can change to aqua or light blue depending on the animals' mood and awareness.

All animals have a Chakra System. Like a human's Chakra System, most animals have seven active Primary Chakras and up to 21 Minor Chakras and 6 Bud Chakras (4 paw pads, and the bud of skin at the opening of the ears).

Blue Mountain Insurance Group, Inc. Health Insurance Specialists • 509-520-1187 Recommended Reading: “A Trust Betrayed: The Untold Story of Camp Lejeune and the Poisoning of Generations of Marines and Their Families” by Mike Magner (Da Capo Press/A Merloyd Lawrence Book, $27.50) Reviewed by Larry Cox “A Trust Betrayed” is the shocking, true story of an environmental disaster at Camp Lejeune that poisoned generations of U.S. Marines and triggered one of the largest hazardous waste exposures in history. Author Mike Magner was investigating contaminated military bases when he learned about Tom Townsend, a former Marine officer who was stationed at Camp Lejeune in the late 1960s. Townsend and his wife lost an infant son to birth defects and other health problems, and only years later discovered the death likely was caused by contaminated drinking water on the South Carolina base. Magner began uncovering similar situations involving Marines and their families, many suffering from serious illnesses such as lymphoma and birth defects. According to Magner, it was the statistics that told the shocking story. For example, a horrifying number of Camp Lejeune men developed breast cancer while living at the base. Worse yet, even after the health dangers became evident, the military brass reacted slowly and even shirked responsibility for their own negligence. There were even cases of so-called scientific studies manipulated by people with power, money and secrets to hide. “A Trust Betrayed” shifts between the slow-moving cogs of military bureaucracy and the harrowing reports of the afflicted -- Marines who wondered how the Corps to which they had sworn fidelity could have betrayed that trust to such a level. The story moves from the initial reports of solvents found in the groundwater to the section of the Jacksonville City Cemetery known as “Baby Heaven,” so named because of the alarming number of miscarriages interred there. This extremely disturbing book demands the military hold itself accountable for the health and safety of its bases and tenants so that health disasters like the one at Camp Lejeune never happen again.

Some people believe the energy centers of animals need to be opened, but that's not what I've experienced. Because animals already live in the present moment and attached to Source, their energy systems are already open and working to the fullest. However, like humans, animals store some memories in these centers. So even though they're open and working, there are times animals need them cleared. This clearing can be done with tuning forks, through energy touch, Reiki, acupuncture, acupressure, tapping, lasers, long distance energy work or just petting and loving. In saying this, most animals can clear their own centers easily because they are so in tune with Mother Earth and what is going on around them. Animal's feet, whether they walk or fly, are extremely sensitive to the land and trees and the harmonious energy they feel from them. These energies from Mother Earth help heal many of the problems animals may have in their centers.


for allowing us to serve you for the past 10 years!




Animal's energy centers correspond closely to the energy centers of humans. If your pet is having specific problems, we need to look and see if there is a connection to a specific center that might be holding a trauma and needs to be cleared. If you are working with an animal communicator, be sure to ask them about the charkas in your pet. A good animal communicator should be able to see a blockage and clear it by either long distance energy work or by telling the animal what they need to do to clear it themselves.

HOLLYWOOD -- Meryl Streep’s newest challenge is playing Emmeline Pankhurst. Who is Emmeline Pankhurst, you ask? Born in 1858, she was the leader of the British suffragette movement who helped women win the right to vote. In 1999, Time Magazine named her one of the 100 Most Important People of the 20th century because, “She shook society into a new pattern from which there could be no going back.” “Suffragette,” which also stars Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter, is the first film ever granted the right to shoot in The Palace of Westminster at the Houses of Parliament in the United Kingdom. It will be released early next year. *** It looks like Brad Pitt is about to sign on as star for the second season of HBO’s “True Detective.” Matthew McConaughey completed filming the first season of the highly rated series prior to winning his Oscar and is headed for greener pastures, and it’s not likely that Woody Harrelson will return either. A female star is being sought to co-star with Pitt should he sign on. Producers are trying to switch up the storylines regularly, as they do every season on “American Horror Story.” Oscar-winner Billy Bob Thornton (“Sling Blade”) is counting on the new FX series “Fargo” to be a hit. So far, ratings have been good for the continuation of the popular Coen Brothers movie, which won an Oscar for Frances McDormand. Billy Bob still is recovering from his last effort, Billy Bob Thornton “Jayne Mansfield’s Car,” which he wrote, directed and starred in with Robert Duvall, Kevin Bacon, John Hurt, Tippi Hedren and Robert Patrick. Despite that great cast, the film, released last September, only managed to take in $14,836 at the box office. Hopefully, the cast will attract fans to buy the DVD. Hugh Jackman will hit the talk-show trail soon to promote the May 23 release of “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” But not before he completes work on his newest film, Neill Blomkamp’s “Chappie” with Sigourney Weaver, in which Jackman’s main co-star is a gifted prodigy ... and a robot. Sounds more like daze of future present! (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

• Very vulnerable to extinction, there are only about 3,200 tigers existing in the wild today. In just over 100 years, the world has lost 97% of its wild tigers. • Whereas the lion is a social animal, tigers are solitary and typically hunt alone. They are massive animals, with the male Siberian tigers weighing up to 660 lbs. (300 kg). When their prey is bagged, the tiger might eat up to 88 lbs. (40 kg) of meat at one time. Their large size doesn’t slow them down, however, as tigers can reach a running speed of up to 40 mph (65 km/hr) and can swim distances of up to 3.7 miles (6 km).

Fans of the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz will recognize the familiar phrase, “Lions and tigers and bears, oh, my!” uttered by Dorothy. Here is some interesting info about each of Dorothy’s fears.

• A lion’s diet is most large animals, such as zebras and wildebeests. The females are the primary hunters in the pride.

• Ballet • Modern • Jazz


• The cats live in groups called prides, surprisingly, usually led by the females. A pride might have as many as 40 lions, and the females stay in their mother’s pride their entire lives.

• Lions are found primarily in Africa, from the southern border of the Sahara down to South Africa. Although we often refer to lions as “King of the Jungle,” they actually dwell in a prairie grassland habitat. They’re the second in size of the “big cats,” after tigers. A male lion is about 10 feet (3 m) in length, usually weighing between 330 and 550 lbs. (150-250 kg). Its tail adds another 2 or 3 feet (0.6 – 1 m) to its length. At its shoulder, an adult lion stands nearly 4 feet (1.2 m) tall. Its roar can be heard nearly 5 miles (8 km) away.

• White tigers are extremely rare, carrying a gene that is present in just one out of every 10,000 tigers.


• There are eight different species of bears, including brown, black, polar, and pandas. Brown bears are the largest of all, and can weigh up to 2,200 lbs. (998 kg). Polar bears are the second largest species, weighing about 1,500 lbs. (680 kg), and measuring up to 10 feet (3 m) long. Their thick white coat has nearly 9,700 hairs per square inch. Diet consists mainly of seals and walruses. A polar bear can track down an odor from 20 miles (32 km) away, and can detect a dead seal under 3 feet (0.9 m) of solid ice. Once it captures its prey, the polar bear’s stomach can hold 150 lbs. (68 kg) of meat.

• About 1,000 to 2,000 giant pandas live in the wilds of China today. At birth, the cub weighs just 5 oz. (150 g.), but will grow to about 330 lbs. (150 kg). Its diet is almost entirely bamboo, about 45 lbs. (20.4 kg) a day. • It’s not wise to try to out-run a bear. Some bears can run up to 40 mph (64 km/hr). Compare this to the pace of Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt, the fast human alive, who can run 27 mph (43.5 km/hr.).
