Tidbits scoops up some...

Ice Cream

by Kathy Wolfe I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! Since July is National Ice Cream Month, it’s a good time for Tidbits to bring you the “scoop” about this confection and those who peddle it.

Let’s make it happen!

• We’ve been celebrating National Ice Cream Month since 1984, when President Ronald Reagan proclaimed it as such in Senate Joint Resolution 298, calling upon “the people of the United States to observe these events with appropriate ceremonies and activities.” Reagan’s basis for the proclamation was that “ice cream is a nutritious and wholesome food, enjoyed by over 90% of the people,” and is “the perfect dessert and snack food.”

• The origins of ice cream appear to date back to the second century B.C. Alexander the Great is documented as a being a fan of snow and ice flavored with honey and nectar. Emperor Nero Claudius Caesar dispatched runners into the mountains to obtain snow to be infused with fruits and juices. • In the 13th century when explorer Marco Polo returned to his native Italy from his travels in the Far East, he brought home a recipe very similar to our sherbet of today. “Cream Ice” was on the table of England’s King Charles I during the early 1600s. A Parisian café first offered ice cream to the public around 1600. • Ice cream’s first official mention in North Ameri-

The New York Gazette featured a confectioner’s advertisement for ice cream in 1777 informing readers that the treat was available “almost every day.” President George Washington was a great lover of ice cream, with records indicating that the chief executive spent $200 on ice cream during the summer of 1790. His personal effects at the time of his death included two pewter ice cream pots. James Madison was another president who was fond of the treat, having it served at his Inaugural Ball in 1813.

FAMOUS WOMEN OF THE WORLD:

ANNIE OAKLEY

Perhaps the first female celebrity athlete in America, sharpshooter Annie Oakley’s abilities were truly astonishing. Let’s take a look at the life of the woman known as “Little Sure Shot.” • The birthplace of Phoebe Ann Moses was a tiny cabin in western Ohio in 1860. With a family of seven children to feed, Phoebe Ann was already trapping birds and small animals at the tender age of five. By age seven, she was using an old muzzleloading gun of her father’s to bag game. • When Phoebe was six years old, her father was caught in a severe blizzard while driving a team of horses into town. He died shortly afterward of injuries sustained in the brutal weather. • Due to financial poverty, at age 8 Phoebe was sent to board at the county infirmary, a home for the elderly, orphans, and mentally ill. The superintendent’s wife schooled her and taught her to sew, a skill she used later in life to sew her costumes. The infirmary found a position for her with a local family, tending their infant for 50 cents a week. However, it wasn’t long before it became apparent that there would be no money and the young girl was subjected to grueling labor, and mental and physical abuse. After virtually being held prisoner for nearly two years, she ran away, making her way to a train depot 20 miles away, where a generous man paid for a ticket home. • Back at home, Phoebe set to work providing for the large family. She began hunting wild game and selling it to restaurants and hotels. By the time she was 15, she had paid off the mortgage on her mother’s house. • A Cincinnati hotel owner who had purchased meat from Phoebe changed her life forever. Jack Frost invited her to participate in a shooting contest where she was pitted against a well-known professional marksman, Frank Butler. In the match, Butler hit 24 out of 25 birds, but she hit them all. Ten months later the pair married when Phoebe Ann was just 16 years old. • The Butlers settled in Cincinnati and began per-

Some say it was the name of that kind man who had paid her train fare years before, but a more likely explanation is that she took the name from their neighborhood in Cincinnati. • The couple joined Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show in 1885, and Annie would remain the show’s star attraction for 17 years. Here she met fellow performer, Lakota leader Sitting Bull. The two became friends and the chief nicknamed the 5-ft.-tall (1.5-m) Annie “Little Sure Shot.” She could shoot a dime in mid-air from 90 feet! • At age 41, Annie was seriously injured in a train wreck that left her temporarily partially paralyzed. Even after five spinal surgeries, she continued to set records. At 62, she sustained critical injuries in an auto accident, but after a 1 ½-year recovery, she was setting records again! But the following year, she was in frail health, and in 1926, Annie died of pernicious anemia. Devastated by grief, her husband of 50 years Frank Butler is said to have stopped eating, and he passed away just 18 days later.

“The Supreme Court has ruled that the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional. Here in West Hollywood, the gay community was out in the streets kissing each other, they went dancing, they closed up traffic. And then they heard about the ruling.” –Bill Maher “Not everyone is taking advantage of the new law. John McCain and Lindsay Graham announced today that they’re going to continue living secret lives of quiet desperation.” –Bill Maher “It’s been a bit of a week for the Supreme Court. Yesterday they ruled that it’s okay for gay people to get married. Today, they ruled it’s okay for straight people to rollerblade.” –Craig Ferguson “President Obama is currently on a week-long trip to Africa, where he will promote freedom, democracy, and economic opportunity. I guess he figured it hasn’t worked here – so try it somewhere else.” –Jay Leno “The Girl Scouts announced that their pension plan has a $347 million deficit. The Girl Scouts are $347 million in debt so in addition to teaching girls about camping it also is preparing them for careers in government.” –Jay Leno “NSA leaker Edward Snowden somehow managed to get out of the U.S. with all their information. Now where is he? He’s in Russia now, going to be in Ecuador or wherever. He remains at large. Now what are the odds out of 350 million Americans, the only one the government wasn’t watching was him?” –Jay Leno

By Samantha Weaver • In 1977, Ken Olson, president, chairman and founder of Digital Equipment Company, made the following regrettable statement: “There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home.” • Gross fact of the day: Half of the bacteria in the human mouth haven’t even been identified yet by science. • The drug Ivermectin is a broad-spectrum antiparasitic, used mainly to treat infestations of worms. The people who have been helped by this medication might be surprised to learn that the drug was developed through research spurred by a fungus found growing on the golf shoe of a botanist. • If you’re a centenarian, you might want to consider moving to New Mexico. In that state, there is a law declaring that everyone 100 and older is tax-exempt. • Unless you were around on April 17, 1964, you may not be aware of the hullabaloo caused by the introduction of the Mustang. In Seattle, a truck driver was so distracted by a display of new Mustangs that he crashed his cement truck through the window of the dealership. In Chicago, so many people were trying to crowd into the cars in a showroom that the dealer had to lock all the vehicle doors. A dealer in New Jersey had only one Mustang, so he auctioned it off. The winner of the auction insisted on sleeping in his new car that night, just to make sure nobody else got it before his check cleared. • Arizonans take note: Hunting camels is illegal in your state. • If you’re like the hypothetical average person, your mouth will create 10,000 gallons of saliva over the course of your lifetime. Thought for the Day: “A pint of sweat saves a gallon of blood.” -- General George S. Patton (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

YOUR WEEKLY

KICK IN THE PANTS! By Ron Ross

“Stop whining - most of your life is up to you.” Ron Ross What Could Possibly Go Right? Don’t Just Follow Your Heart, Be Smart

“My boyfriends a grad student at the U,” said the young waitress at a local diner. “Really,” I replied. “What’s he getting his degree in?” “He’s finishing his PhD degree in performance jazz!” she replied with great pride as she filled our coffee cups and moved to the next booth. My wife looked at me and leaned forward, “A PhD in performance jazz?” she whispered. “Where’s he going to get a job with enough pay to make a living and repay all his student loans?” I said, “He’s a musician. He’s following his heart, not his head.” Which reminds me of another story. My brother Dick and I were in high school in the late 1950s and early 1960s as the space race between Russia and the USA heated up. From the first launch of the Sputnik to the first man on the moon, Dick wanted to be an astronaut. He loved flying and earned his private pilot’s license on his 17th birthday, so flying was in his heart. His grades were good and he had an IQ high enough to enter the space program so he inquired about it – he was following his heart. But no matter how much he wanted to be an astronaut and no matter how great a pilot he already was, and no matter how high his IQ stood, he could never be an astronaut because he was too tall. At 17 years old he was over 6’ tall and back then no astronaut that tall could fit into a space capsule. Brother Dick could not follow his heart so he had to be smart. Instead of flying as an astronaut,

he went to college, then joined the Navy (like our dad did during World War 2), and learned to fly the Navy way and for several years flew the most sophisticated jets the Navy had; and he’s been flying ever since. Now, even in his retirement, he teaches others how to fly the most technically advanced exeutive aircraft there is. No doubt you’ve read the quotes of those who advise you to find your passion and follow your heart. The advice sounds good at first, but is it? Of course it is, to some degree, but somewhere in the process you have to be smart. I honestly hope our waitress’ boyfriend finds a really great job as a performing jazz musician and that he pays off his college debt early. But any following of the heart needs to be preceded by the use of your smart. That is, you must have some logic to your decisions and a plan that reaches beyond the passion of the moment. “Where might this passion lead me?” is a worthy query. And to ask, “What will be required of me to fulfill my dream?” is imperative. In other words, you need to have a reasonable expectation of what it will take, followed by a willingness to pay the price. Then you can follow your heart. This does not mean you should not dream big and follow your passion. It means there is a difference between a sincere vision of your future and a delusional desire to be someone or do something just because it looks cool or sounds exciting. Today’s Kick in the Pants is: Don’t just follow your heart, be smart.
