For a guy who has begun following a healthy diet, begun to exercise, and is trying to lose weight . . . this assignment was a tough one.

The assignment? Describe smorrebrod. (Most of us Yanks probably call it smorgasborg).

Regular readers of The Paper will recall a couple years ago we profiled a

fella named Frode Suhr, a true Danish national hero who was a member of the Danish Underground and Resistance.

Well, Frode seemed to have liked our story about him so he invited Evelyn Madison and I to join him and his lovely wife, Doris, for a bona fide real Danish lunch.

Now, I’m mostly Scandinavian, about 60% Norwegian, 35% Danish, and 5%

Welsh (the Welsh is where the Davis comes in). I’ve been to both Norway and Denmark but I have never, ever eaten a finer meal than the smorrebrod prepared for us by Doris Suhr.

And nothing surprised us more than to learn the delightful tradition that is smorrebrod. What a tasty tradition!

Consider this: A traditional Danish lunch will normally last two to four hours. There will likely be about 30-

40-50 sandwiches. (While that may be impressive to you, consider that a world reknown Danish restaurant and smorrebrod house, Oskar Davidsen, in Aalborg, Denmark, has a menu of 150 sandwiches, up to 180 sandwiches for special occasions.. (Yes, I said 180 sandwiches!. Their menu is three feet long).

So, I’m suggesting, as we did, that you try something new and either eat . . . or better yet, make smorrebrod!

If you do, I guarantee you success, applause and praise. And a pleasantly full tummy.

And so you say: What is Smorrebrod?

Smorrebrod (or Smørrebrød) is a Danish National food that’s served at celebrations, special occasions or just about any time, any place. It is definitely the best food there is in Denmark….very pretty, a piece of art, really. And when you make Smorrebrod, you don’t have to go to a specialty store and buy special equipment like when you make sushi - or a wok for Chinese food, or a pizza pan, etc. You do have to do lots and lots of shopping, but all the ingredients may be purchased at an ordinary supermarket, And you don’t have to be of Danish heritage (or a Viking) to eat and enjoy Smorrebrod.

You are served one group of food at a time. The sequence is a seafood arrangment, followed by meat dishes and we finish with a cheese and fruit arrangement.

We start with a delicious spiced herring served with onion rings and capers on dark pumpernickel bread (the type without seeds). You are served the traditional Danish Aalborg Schnapps, ice cold in one ounce glasses. You do not sip this,

you down it in one drink. That is the custom.

Evelyn and I seldom drink but we wanted to follow the proper tradition. In the process, I became a fan of Schnapps. You will also be served a dark beer, which you will likely drink with your meat dishes.

Examples of the fish part of the lunch: Mackerel in tomato sauce on rye bread. Tiny anchovies rest on slices of hard boiled egg on rye bread; caviar on egg cake on white toasted bread; shrimp with lemon slice on white bread. Real Crab salad with black olives on white bread. Smoked Norwegian Salmon with shredded celery root on white bread. Russian salad has herring, beets and macaroni, and is served on black bread.

One drinks both Schnapps and beer during the fish serving. Once you advance to the meat dishes, the Schnapps disappears and you focus on the beers (usually several different types. We had Carlsberg, imported from Denmark).

Next, let’s have some large white asparagus, rolled into ham with Italian salad, on white bread. The sun-dried Prosciutto or Rosemary ham is served with canteloup or white asparagus on French white bread; jellied beef tongue with olives on white bread with sweet red beets; hot miniature sausages, which you seek out in a cauldron

Getting hungry? That’s the idea. Not only is the tummy and appetite pleased . . . but the eye as well.

Doris Suhr made huge platters of smorrebrod delights. Beautiful to look at, even more lovely to eat.

Oh, I learned a lesson. Frode Suhr tactfully taught me that it is not good manners to take more than one item from a smorrebrod tray at a time. Eat all you want, but just take one item as at time, then help yourself to a second and third helping as long as the food remains. That way, someone who is particularly fond of a certain type sandwich has at least a chance at it. Also, just take one sandwich at a time. That’s why the plates are small (naturally, I had taken one of each type of sandwichbefore I learned the proper custom).

When the cheese and fruit section appears, it’s time for the Schnapps to reappear. Ice cold schnapps just goes perfectly with cheeses and fruits. At the end, often after three or four hours, coffee, liquor or a brandy is served

The important thing about Smorrebrod is to forget about the diet you were on yesterday, it can continue tomorrow.

Holding hands, they walked back to their old school. It was not locked, so they entered, and found the old desk they’d shared, where Andy had carved “I love you, Sally.”

On their way back home, a bag of money fell out of an armored car, practically landing at their feet. Sally quickly picked it up and, not sure what to do with it, they took it home. There, she counted the money - fifty thousand dollars!

Andy said, “We’ve got to give it back.”

What To Do

Do the shopping a couple of days ahead of making the sandwiches. All the items can be purchased in a supermarket except for maybe the schnapps, which is the crowning glory of Smorrebrod. The schnapps can usually be found in a wellstocked liquor store or Trader Joes or an upscale grocery store.

Try to find a nice imported liver pâté or go to a fancy delicatessen for liverwurst. Here you may also find all the cold cuts and the pickled herring. Also ahead of time you should boil a few eggs (hardboiled as well as making røregg (a form of scrambled egg).

One The Day of the Party

The trick to making smorrebrod is to work fast once you get started. You have to have all the ingredients ready - So here goes:

Open all the cans of vegetables and drain. Keep each kind separated. Wash the lettuce and spin-dry. It is important that the lettuce is crisp, clean and dry. Slice the cucumbers in thin slices; also slice tomatoes, olives, lemons, oranges and onions. (Keep onions separate). Fry the bacon and drain. Fry some onions. Make Italiensk Salat (peas and carrots in mayonnaise) and Remulade.

Now on your kitchen table have everything ready to work with quickly. Rye bread, butter (at room temperature), cold cuts, and all the vegetables. If there is not enough room on the table, use the sink and surrounding counters, just as long as everything is within reach.

Now you are ready to start: The trick is speed. Work fast.

1. Butter the rye bread, slice by slice and cut each in half. Calculate about 3 or 4 pieces for each person. 10 guests x 3 = 30 half slices = 15 whole slices (add a couple more slices to be on the safe side. Distribute these evenly on the platters. Allow plenty of room around them. You may mix in a few buttered slices of white bread also on the platters. Make sure you use lots of butter and cover the whole surface of the bread lavishly.

2. Now place a small piece of lettuce on the end of each slice of bread and top it with cold cuts – each slice with its own kind: ham, salami, beef, pork, etc. The liverwurst may be sliced in the form in which it was baked so it will not break. Use the white bread for the cheese and the smoked salmon, but wait with the scrimp till later. Some slices may be with tomatoes and eggs (tomatoes first, then eggs on top).

3. Now, the fun part: You are ready to do your artwork – the finishing touch. Use the chopped vegetables to decorate with – just like you would a cake. Anything goes – really – as long as it is pretty and the flavors don’t clash. The Danes have traditional ways of decorating their smorrebrod. Here are some suggestions:

Stir your peas and carrots with a little mayonnaise and place a heaping spoonful on top of the ham topped yet with a couple of slices of twisted orange. Place some red cabbage on the pork with perhaps some orange slices. The liverwurst should be decorated with fried crisp bacon, pickled beets or cucumbers and mushrooms. All this should be arranged in a decorative manner.

The salami is good with sliced onions and some black olives on top. Place some twisted fresh cucumber slices on the egg and tomato. The smoked salmon looks and tastes good with scrambled egg (røregg) and add a little green here, either basil or parsley or other fresh herb. On the cheese place some sliced green and red pepper. The other cold cuts may be decorated with olives, beets, cabbage, fried or raw onions, etc. Keep the various slices mixed on the trays. The goal is to make things look decorative, inviting and appetizing. To add a final touch: place whole radishes in between the slices of smorrebrod to cover up any open spaces. Parsley and a large “starred” tomato with parsley may also be placed on each tray – all to make it pretty.

4. When all done, quickly cover the trays loosely with plastic wrap. Be careful not to destroy your artwork. Place the trays in the refrigerator until ready to serve your guests. You may safely store the smorrebrod a couple of hours before serving.

Felon in Possession of a Firearm Arrested During Distracted Driver Enforcement Detail in Escondido

Escondido, Calif. – On Friday, January 6, officers with the Escondido Police Department arrested a felon in possession of a firearm while conducting a distracted driver detail. Officers also issued 104 citations for distracted driving violations and other vehicle code violations that are leading causes of crashes.

Gerardo Antonio Sambrano, age 31, of Escondido faces 11 felony charges after an officer discovered a loaded firearm in a vehicle in which he was riding. He was booked into county jail.

Under current law, drivers are not allowed to hold a phone or electronic communications device while operating a vehicle. This includes talking, texting, or using an app. Using a handheld cell phone while driving is punishable by a fine. Violating the hands-free law for a second time within 36 months of a prior conviction for the same

offense will result in a point being added to a driver’s record.

“A driver’s focus should be on the road, not their phone,” Escondido Chief of Police Ed Varso said.

“That text, phone call, email or social media post is not worth the risk to yourself and other people on the road.”

If you have an important phone call or need to program directions, pull over to a safe parking spot. Before driving, either silence your phone or put it somewhere you can’t reach.

The Escondido Police Department will hold another distracted driving enforcement operation on February 10.

Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Palomar Health Debuts New Expanded State-of-the-Art Level III NICU at Escondido Campus

SAN DIEGO— January 6, 2023 –Just steps away from the labor and delivery rooms, Palomar Health’s

grabbed the four birds in his care and they all escaped, just as the place went up in flames. Pretty much everything was destroyed, so the spring and summer of last year was all about rebuilding.

Escondido campus built a brandnew Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, or NICU. To serve an even greater need for neonatal intensive care patients, this NICU opened to the public on January 4 and can accommodate three times more patients, increasing from four to 12 beds.

This NICU is equipped with stateof-the-art technology, ensuring advanced intensive care 24 hours a day for the safety of every newborn. Palomar Health’s new NICU consists of an extraordinary team of doctors, specialty-trained nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, respiratory therapists, lactation consultants and other specialists, to guide parents through every step of their newborn’s journey. The new unit is also equipped with brand new ventilators, new incubators, new monitors and the latest technology, to offer the best possible care for patients and serve all mothers and newborns throughout North County.

Since last year, Palomar Health’s world-class doctors have helped deliver 4,000 newborns, some of which needed more intensive care. However, the newborns that

There is a need for education of people who want to either foster or adopt birds, learning how to handle birds before fostering or adopting.

Man About Town

nother week and more and more interesting people cross our path. And birds.

Yes, birds. Parrots, to be exact. And parakeets, and macaws, and . . . well, let me tell you a story.

Back in 2008 an organization known as The Chloe Sanctuary was founded and immediately filed for their nonprofit status. Their mission? To serve as a sanctuary for birds . . . parrots, parakeets, macaws, and the like. They went into operation in 2009. Since then, it began to grow in leaps and bounds but then a near tragedy slowed things down. In the spring of last year there was a fire at their headquarters, which was basically Father Don’s apartment in Escondido. (Don Scott, a Tibetan Buddhist, is called Father Don by his friends). He came home one night and smelled smoke. He quickly

The sanctuary itself was moved to a house in Fallbrook where nine parrots and cockatoos currently live. But the majority of the birds in their care live with foster caretakers, who are spread throughout San Diego county, and even have begun to reach up into the Inland Empire and LA.

How did the Chloes Sanctuary come to be? Well, Father Don, who is normally a mobile computer technician, began to think about getting a bird about four and a half years ago. He got books, studied them, came across an obscure Internet User Group and saw a message about a Cockatoo that had to have a home and in just a few days. Don couldn’t bear the thought of the Cockatoo not having a home so he drove to Spring Valley and became the new parent of Chloe. He drove back to Escondido from Spring Valley with Chloe sitting on his shoulder all the way.

The Chloe Sanctuary had been born

Father Don funded the project himself for about two and a half years; then Petco began to help

Father Don began to acquire a menagerie, principally from relinquishments, San Diego Animal Control, and the Humane Society.

Today, The Chloe Sanctuary has 10 birds at the sanctuary, and another 12 at foster parents.

“We have to turn away about two birds a day,” Father Don says. “Some organizations in San Diego are turning away up to five birds a day. It kills us to turn birds down -. . but you can only handle so many birds at a time. As we acquire more foster parents, we can accept more birds. And, as we find more and more adopters, we can also expand our service to accept more and more birds.

The problem is, the more you get known, the more people contact you, wanting you to take their birds. We would like a larger facility . . . maybe even open an online store to sell foods, toys, etc., to help fund the operation, so we can expand a bit.”

Our hardest task is to find volunteers and foster parents. We advertise in newspapers, online, we’re partners with Petco, they even help us find adopters.”

Birds, for example, require socialization, some as much as six hours a day. Vacations can be a problem, as you need to get someone who knows birds to care for them while you’re gone.

If all you have is someone who comes in an feeds and waters the bird once a day, with no socialization, you’re likely to have a pretty cranky bird when you return.

To adopt a parrot, they have an application and some classes that can be taken online on parrot health, behavior, and training. They require a home check so that they can point out and eliminate any parrot hazards as well as meet everyone in an adoptive family to get a feeling of who is truly willing to take on the responsibility of adding another member to the family.

There is an adoption fee, the cost of which is based on the type of bird. Every parrot has been vet checked as soon as they are taken in.

Their website is www.chloesanctuary.org. Phone number is 760645-3972. Probably the best email for people is fatherdon@chloesanctuary.org to reach the director, or cgraham@chloesanctuary.org.

A Night Out

A wife decides to take her husband to a strip club for his birthday.

When they arrive, the door man says, “Hiya, Dave!”

The wife is surprised the door man knows her husband’s name. He just laughed and said, “Oh, that’s Bill. He’s on my bowling team.”

They find a seat and the waitress comes up and says, “Howdy, Dave. You want your usual, a Budweiser?”

“Who is that woman and how does she know you drink Bud?” the wife demanded.

Dave just shook his head and said, “Honey, she’s in the Ladies’ Bowling League. We share lanes with them.”

5. The shrimp should be done separately. Here is how: Butter white bread lavishly and cut in half. Place on a pretty tray. Now top with a nice whole leaf of lettuce, preferably one that will form a little “cup.” No bread may be seen. Now pile shrimp on top of the lettuce (a handful). Decorate with a tablespoon of mayonnaise and two slices of thin twisted lemon. A little parsley here and there will add beauty. Cover the tray and place in the refrigerator.

6. The pickled herring is also usually served separately. Either the herring can be placed in a little dish surrounded by buttered small slices of rye bread or the bread may be covered with the fish topped with onion slices and capers or beets.

7. That’s all. You are done. Undoubtedly you have a big old mess to clean up. But it is easy. Whatever you didn’t use, just throw it all together and store it for a salad the next day.

Figure 2-3 slices of meat or cheese for each piece of smorrebrod (half a slice of bread). A pound of shrimp will cover about 4-5 pieces of Smorrebrod.

Smorrebrod can be taken to a potluck party in which case you may want to omit the herring. But do add a few shrimp pieces (may be mixed in on the same platter at a potluck) I guarantee it will be a success.

But the best would be to throw a Danish party. All you have to do now after making all the smorrebrod and placed the platters in the refrigerator is to have the table set – don’t forget the knives and forks and tiny glasses for the schnappsdrinks cooled – schnapps should be on ice and you are ready to go.

Sliced Cucumber Salad (Agurke Salat)

Cucumber Salad

Sliced cucumber salad is called agurke salat (a-gorka sal-at). It can be served as a side dish or on open faced sandwiches (Smorrebrod).

Here’s a photo of what the opened faced sandwiches called Smørrebrød look like. This photo is from http://www.copenhagenet.dk/.

Smørrebrød sandwiches are as much art as they are a delicacy.

Agurke Salat

There are two important steps when preparing this cucumber salad. First, slice the cucumbers paper thin. Second, salt them to remove, “the burp” from them. Other than that, the rest is easy.

You can make a big batch at a time and eat them all week long, even using the vinegar mixture a second time and just slice and salt some more cucumbers.

Ingredients

3 large cucumbers

Table salt

1 cup of white wine vinegar

½ cup water

½ cup sugar

1 teaspoon of coriander seeds salt & pepper, to taste

How to Make Sliced Cucumber Salad

You can leave the peel on or you can peel them if you like. They might be too flimsy if you cut them paper-thin. You can use a food processor to slice them or a mandolin, or, if you have a lot of patience, slice them by hand but be sure they are paper thin.

Next them out on some paper towels and sprinkle them with salt. Let them sit there for about 10 minutes.

After they have been salted, put them in a colander and wash all the salt off with cold water. If you don’t get most of the salt off, the final result will be way too salty. Gently squeeze the sliced cucumbers in your hands to get rid of as much water as possible. You can let them drain in the colander while you make the vinegar mixture.

Prepare the Vinegar Mixture

In a medium sized bowl that you are going to serve the cucumbers in, add the vinegar with the water, then the sugar and coriander seeds. Mix well until the sugar is dissolved.

Add the cucumbers and coriander seeds and mix together with your hands or spoon if you don’t like to get your hands dirty. Cover and refrigerate for a few hours so the cucumbers pick up all the flavor of the sugared vinegar.

This is really simple to make and goes especially well with pork.

Capitol Schedule for 2023

On January 4, 80 Assemblymembers and 40 Senators returned to Sacramento for the 2023-2024 legislative session. Hundreds of bills will be introduced over the coming weeks. Most won’t be controversial, and many will probably never become law.

Most bills must be submitted to the Office of Legislative Counsel by January 20, and February 17 is the final bill introduction deadline. Bills will be referred to their respective committees for hearings in March or April, where many will be amended significantly. Legislative deadlines throughout the year must be met -- bills that don’t meet these deadlines can be held over as two year bills. Legislation with a fiscal impact greater than $50,000 for Senate bills or $150,000 for Assembly bills will be referred to the Senate or Assembly Appropriations Committees’ “Suspense Files,” where bills with significant fiscal impacts receive more scrutiny before a final floor vote.

All bills must pass through their assigned committees and house of origin by June 2; final passage by both houses is required by the time we adjourn on September 14.

This final floor vote is often the only time members not assigned to a bill’s specific committees actually see the bill. The Governor will then have until October 14 to sign or veto legislation submitted to him by the Legislature.

This session we have 24 new Assemblymembers and 10 new Senators. Even though the partisan makeup in Sacramento is lopsided, with 62 Democrats and 18 Republicans in the Assembly, and 32 Democrats and 8 Republicans in the Senate, bipartisan legislation is common. There is always potential for solid bipartisan work on important legislation. The major problems facing our state, including homelessness, public safety, wildfire prevention, inadequate water storage capacity, economic revitalization and many more, impact everyone, regardless of party.

Assemblymember Marie Waldron, R- Valley Center, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes the cities of Poway, Santee, portions of the City of San Diego, and most of rural eastern and northern San Diego County.

Problem Solved

Mark Graham is planning a trip to Sicily and France with his wife this summer. He’s still working out some of the details, but one thing he is sure of: getting travel insurance. Graham can’t imagine traveling without it.

“We feel better knowing we have the safety of insurance,” says Graham, a retired telecommunications worker from Danville, Calif.

And who can blame him? The pandemic made travel insurance a must-have item for many travelers, including people like Graham, who fit the “must be insured” profile (retired, overseas travel, cruising). Others who are planning their 2023 trips may still be on the fence. I can help you decide.

It’s going to be another interesting year for travel, experts say.

“Between flight disruptions, weather issues, and unexpected medical emergencies, travel is unpredictable and will continue to be so in 2023,” says Carol Mueller, a vice president at Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection.

It’s natural for people to think about travel insurance. But what should they do? Graham’s concerns are common. For example, what if there’s another COVID outbreak or the war in Ukraine affects his cruise? He’s also worried about a possible trip disruption or medical emergency. Those are issues that a standard travel insurance policy can address. But there are so many choices.

“Travelers are more interested in purchasing travel insurance than ever,” says Karisa Cernera, a director at Redpoint Travel Protection, a travel insurance company. “But choosing a travel protection plan can be overwhelming.”

Letters from page 4

Issa may not simply be around. He is best known for helping (unintelligible) escape from George Bush’s Military Attention Deficit War in Afghanistan.

So I most recently wrote to Jim Desmond. He at least acknowledge my letter in generalities.

Next, because he pays you to create the illusion that he is available, I called the telephone number listed in back issiue of The Paper. Here was what happened: A woman asked where I lived so I said Bonsall. I asked to make an appointment to see Mr. Desmond. Her reaction was to refuse and imply that I was (North County) clearly out of Mr. Desmond’s territory. His office is at 325 South Melrose Avenue Suite 5200, in Vista which is definitely in North County. When I knew she was not going to allow me to make an appointment I informed her that if Mr. Desmond was unavailable to the public I would not vote for him anymore.

Quickly he removed the telephone number and now the only access to him is a long e-mail address. I don’t need e-mail even if I knew how to use it. Please cease accepting his advertisement and short column until or unless he will meet with the public. I was respectful to his unfortunate receptionist.

Darrell Issa also ignores personal letters. I’ll try telephoning his local office to see IF he actually even spends times there or not.

San Diego Union Tribune expressed the opinion in last 6 months that 82% of elected officials are in it for the money.

I am still searching for ANYONE who is in the 18% that actually will personally talk with the general pub-

lic. I am Caucasian, veteran, highly educated and I vote every election. Your paper is FAR superior to incumbent news media.

The Catalyst, John Hemphill ***

It’s been over a month now and the past few issues of The Paper are missing something big: your front cover story writer Friedrich Gomez. I almost didn’t write this, but there is a growing groundswell with coworkers, friends, family, neighbors etc. who are all quietly asking this same question: where is your celebrated star writer, Mr. Gomez who we have all fallen in love with? He’s way too young to have retired. Has he moved away? Fallen ill? Busy writing for another out-of-state publication? Or given up writing altogether? This one question is reflective of many of us out here in Reader Land. Mr. Gomez has established a powerful, grassroots army of loyal readers and we would certainly appreciate an answer.

Curious in San Diego County, Patrick Flannigan & his big Irish clan.

I sat next to your precious writer, Friedrich Gomez, when he typed out his special “New Year’s Eve” email to you. Reading each and every heartfelt word as he continued to type-out your glorious charitable legacy of helping humanity (which is greatly unknown) brought tears to my eyes and tugged deeply at my heartstrings.

With your beautiful, unselfish acts of compassion (unrecognized or even known) in making a better world caused me to reflect on how unfair life has recently been for you. As Friedrich’s e-mail stated, you have

What kind of insurance is available for your 2023 trip?

If you’re planning to spend more than $5,000 on a trip and you have prepaid, nonrefundable expenses like airfare and a hotel, you need some kind of insurance.

Here are your options:

Most standard travel insurance policies cover “named” perils such as trip cancellation, delays, medical emergencies, medical evacuation, interruptions, and lost luggage. They cost between 5% and 7% of your nonrefundable, prepaid trip expenses.

A “cancel for any reason” policy covers all of the above -- plus, you can cancel your trip for any reason

and get anywhere between 50% and 75% of your money back. A “cancel for any reason” policy costs between 9% and 12% of the cost of your trip.

You may also have coverage through your homeowner’s or renter’s insurance, auto insurance, or credit card. You’re already paying for them, so you may be able to skip a separate policy.

Before you buy anything, you owe it to yourself to check the type of insurance you already have. It may be enough. That’s what Anand Kumar, a program manager from San Ramon, Calif., discovered when he booked a Baltic cruise.

Travel Troubleshooter

When Priscilla McMurtry and her husband cancel their cruise to New Zealand, their cruise line decides to keep their $17,000 airfare. Can it do that?

Q: My husband and I booked business class airfare for our Windstar cruise in New Zealand through the cruise line. There was no mention of the tickets being nonrefundable until we received the confirmation. We had to cancel the cruise, and we tried to get a ticket refund.

Windstar claims it booked the tickets through a third party called Global Marine Travel and that they are nonrefundable. I called American Airlines, which confirmed that it sent a refund to Global Marine Travel. It looks like Windstar Cruises is keeping our $17,000 airfare. Can you help us get a refund? -- P. McMurtry, Indio, Calif.

A: Windstar should have disclosed that your airline tickets were nonrefundable. And if the airline refunded your tickets, it should have at least considered passing that refund along to you.

I reviewed the correspondence between you and Windstar. I could not find any disclosure of the nonrefundability in its emails to you. Since business class tickets are often refundable, you had every reason to believe you might get a refund -- or, at least, a full ticket credit

In an email sent to you, Windstar

pointed out that according to its terms, air travel is nonrefundable once purchased, no matter what your ticket says. So that means even if American refunds Windstar’s travel agency, it gets to keep the money.

I’ve dealt with these double-jeopardy refund cases before, and I have a problem with any company imposing new rules on a purchase. But that’s not why I took your case. I did because I could not find any disclosure of Windstar’s refund rules.

You tried to resolve this yourself by filing a dispute on your credit card. A chargeback is your last line of defense against a fraudulent purchase. You might have contacted one of the executives at Windstar Cruises to plead your case before trying a credit card dispute.

Mostly, I was curious about Windstar’s disclosure. The paper trail between you and the cruise line did not spell out the airfare refund rules. I contacted Windstar to see if I had missed something. In response, the cruise line refunded your $17,000 airline tickets.

breads, pastries, cheeses, jams, meats, and fruit. That’s a lot. And for those of us who are total wimps, there’s always nutella, and there’s sometimes just plain (thinly-sliced) chocolate to put on bread with butter! Basically, breakfast is good.

Lunch is really variable. Traditional Danish food would be smorrebrod, which is an open-faced sandwich, usually with butter, a meat (or fish,) some kind of cheese, and a vegetable. One interesting note is that the Danes tend to be quite fond of rye-bread versus wheat or (god forbid,) white bread. Other than smorrebrod, Danes eat pretty much anything for lunch. Regular sandwiches, pizza, pastas, etc. Again, its good.

Dinner is also pretty good... sometimes you can find some really strange stuff, but mostly its quite ‘normal’ according to Americans. The traditional Danish meat is called frikadella, and its small meatballs made usually with ground pork, some flour, chopped onions, and some other stuff. It was surprisingly good! Now we get to my favorite meal, dessert.

The Golden Utterings of Samuel Goldwyn

Samuel Goldwyn, born Samuel Goldfish on Aug. 27, 1882, was a Polish-American film producer best known for being the founding contributor and executive of several motion picture studios in Hollywood. He was awarded the 1973 Golden Globe Cecil B. DeMille Award, the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award (1947) and the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award (1958).

On Jan. 4, 1899, he arrived in Philadelphia finding work in the bustling glove business. Soon, his marketing skills made him a very successful salesman at the Elite Glove Company. After four years as vice-president of sales, he moved to New York City.

In 1913, Samuel Goldfish, along with his brother-in-law Jesse L. Lasky, Cecil B. DeMille, and Arthur Friend, formed a partnership to produce feature-length silent motion pictures.

In 1914, Paramount was a film exchange and exhibition corporation. Looking for more movies to distribute, Paramount signed a contract with the Lasky Company to supply 36 films per year. One of Paramount’s other suppliers was Adolph Zukor’s Famous Players Company. The two companies merged in 1916, forming The Famous Players-Lasky Corporation. Zukor had been quietly buying Paramount stock, and two weeks before the merger, became president of Paramount Pictures Corporation and had Hodkinson replaced with Hiram Abrams, a Zukor associate.

With the merger, Zukor became president of Paramount and Famous Players-Lasky, Goldfish was named chairman of the board of Famous Players-Lasky, and Jesse Lasky was the first vice-president. After a series of conflicts with Zukor, Goldfish resigned as chairman of the board, and as a member of the executive committee on September 14, 1916, he was no longer an active member of management,

In 1916, Goldfish partnered with Broadway producers Edgar and Archibald Selwyn using a combination of both names to call their film-making enterprise “Goldwyn” Pictures. Seeing an opportunity, Goldfish had his name legally changed to “Samuel Goldwyn” in December and used this name for the rest of his life. Goldwyn Pictures proved successful, but it is their “Leo the Lion” trademark for which the company is remembered today.

In 1924, Goldwyn Pictures was acquired by Marcus Loew and merged into his Metro Pictures Corporation, becoming MetroGoldwyn-Mayer. Despite including his name, Samuel Goldwyn never joined with ownership, management, or production at MetroGoldwyn-Mayer.

Some of the best anecdotes, malaprops, and one-liners from movie mogul Samuel Goldwyn have entertained millions for years were. No one could make up some of these hilarious one-liners. Here are just a few of Samuel Goldwyn’s many:

“Our comedies are not to be laughed at...”

“For this part I want a lady … someone with couth.”

“I’ve been laid up with the intentional flu.”

‘I love the ground that I walk on.”

“I want to make a picture about the Russian secret police … the GOP.”

“Any man who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.”

Problem Solved from page 6

“I concluded that my credit card provides reasonable travel insurance as well as other benefits, so long as I booked my trip with the card,” he says.

Why should you buy travel insurance in 2023?

Do you need a travel insurance policy? That depends on who you are -- and your circumstances. Here’s a checklist. If any of these apply, you may need a policy.

Peace of mind. That’s the number one reason people buy insurance. “They want assurances that if the worst happens, they’re covered,” says Dan Richards, CEO of Global Rescue, a company that provides medical, security, evacuation and travel risk management services. That’s top of mind for 2023, with a war and instability continuing to threaten many vacations.

Medical coverage. That’s a lesson Francesca Owens, a travel coach who moderates Travel The Inside Out Facebook group, learned while traveling internationally. She says she “stupidly” skipped insurance and had to pay cash to settle her hospital bills in Prague. Now she insists that her clients always get insurance. “If they won’t buy insurance,” she says, “I won’t work with them.”

Trip interruption and travel delay benefits. Last summer’s airline disruptions made travelers think about ways of avoiding the chaos. “Travelers want security,” explains Terry Boynton, president of Yon-

der Travel Insurance. “They want to know that if the travel industry is still still not fully stable in 2023, travel insurance will help foot the bill for trip interruptions, travel delays, and lost or delayed baggage.”

Cancellation protection. If you can’t if you can’t afford to lose the money you paid toward your trip, then you might want to splurge for a more expensive “cancel for any reason” policy, say experts like Melissa Beers, co-owner of MyJourneyBeginsTravel.com. Anything else can be a headache when you file a claim, and there’s no guarantee you’ll be covered. “Generally, you have to back it up with medical information and other proof before a travel insurance company will pay the claim,” she says. But do the math before you buy one: You may be spending more than you would get if you file a claim.

How do I know what kind of insurance I need?

Which policy is right for you? That isn’t easy to answer because each traveler is different.

If you’re a 20-something adventure seeker, you’ll need a policy like Redpoint’s Ripcord policies, which include rescue. If you’re retired, you’ll want a comprehensive policy. For example, Graham has decided to buy a policy through Seven Corners, which he found after extensive research. It covers the basics, “and it has a good reputation for claims,” he says.

Consulting with a travel professional can help. But don’t rely on a travel agent. Instead, conduct inde-

pendent research online. (I publish a free guide on travel insurance that may help.)

Geoffrey Millstone, a travel advisor with Clarksburg Travel, says travel insurance has changed since the pandemic. Regular “named perils” policies have new rules that make claims more tedious, and lately travel insurance companies have been slower because of this summer’s travel disruptions. He warns that you have to read the fine print carefully.

“Cancel for any reason policies work, but they can take between 60 and 90 days to process the claim,” he adds.

Whether or not you buy travel insurance for your 2023 trip, travelers say you should at least consider it. Ross Copas, an industrial electrician from Tweed, Canada, says he had a close call on a recent polar cruise that reminded him of the importance of insurance.

“There were a few anxious days before we were tested for COVID and boarded the ship,” he remembers. “We had not bought cruise cancellation coverage for that cruise and were looking at losing a significant amount of money if we tested positive.”

Most major travel insurance policies cover COVID but require you to be hospitalized. There’s a workaround. You can also buy travel insurance through a company like

Covac Global, a membership program that specializes in covering infectious diseases like COVID and medical evacuation without hospitalization requirements.

Fortunately, Copas tested negative. But he learned an important lesson: Always consider your travel insurance options before you book your trip. He says he won’t make that mistake next time.

Avoid these mistakes when buying travel insurance for 2023

Buying the cheapest policy

Dan Skilken, president of TripInsurance.com, sees this mistake every day. People will go to a travel insurance comparison site and buy the cheapest insurance. “The cheapest plan is not necessarily the best value,” he warns. “Consider the plan with better coverage that addresses the risks that you are the most concerned about.”

Waiting too long

Many insurance policies exclude medical conditions for which you have received treatment or have sought medical advice within six months before your insurance starts, says Neville Mehra, chief marketing officer for Genki, which sells travel health insurance. “If a condition arises before your insurance begins, then it will normally

What PC is best for you?

Part ll of II.

Tablets, smart phones and PCs are all Internet access devices. Smart phones and PCs also have some additional capabilities. Smart phones are voice communications devices and PCs have stand-alone local computational, applications and data storage capabilities. Here at THE COMPUTER FACTORY our work and main interests are PCs. Today’s topic involves the four major PC configuration types and how each fits with different user patterns.

The four configurations are Desktops (includes towers), Notebooks, Micros and All-in-Ones. Each of

these configurations has a CPU, memory, data and applications storage, video and sound processing devices. The All-in-One and notebook PCs also have integrated video displays and the notebooks also have integrated mouse/keyboard and a rechargeable power supply.

Notebooks with thirteen to fifteen inch screens weigh three to five pounds and are the most versatile of the PCs. With integrated functions including wired and wireless Internet access, these devices can perform their stand alone and Internet functions anywhere Wi-Fi is available. When these PCs are tethered to a smart phone, Internet connects everywhere there is cell access. Notebooks with seventeen inch and larger screens are called DTRs (desk top replacements) and are fine for moving from room to room or taking on a vacation but at seven pounds and up, they are not highly mobile.

Micros are 6 x 6 x 2 inches and weigh about a pound and a half. They are fully functional PCs ideal for moving between two or more permanent locations (like home and work) where you have the desired set-up preinstalled (mouse, keyboard, screen, printer, Internet, DVD etc.

All-in-Ones are great workstations for home or work. The entire PC is built into the screen housing (monitor). Wireless, sound, DVD-R/W, touch screen and a twenty four inch screen are all enclosed in the monitor housing with a total weight of only twenty five pounds. Used with a wireless keyboard and mouse,

there are no cords, cables or connections, only the lonely power cable.

Desktop or tower PCs are our final consideration. These are meant to be permanent business or home “workstations”. Comfort and convenience are the most important factors. Your peripherals include a nice big screen and perhaps a printer/scanner copier and good quality speakers. There should be ample desk space for writing and a very comfortable office chair. This is a major center for communication, entertainment and learning in your home so it needs to be a place where users can work in quiet and comfort.

Desktops, micro, All-in-One and notebook configurations have been available for many years and nearly all PCs manufactured in the last decade have the ability to stream video and Internet content at today’s Internet speeds. While older

PCs have the CPU speed to easily handle today’s applications and Internet speeds, they may benefit from upgrades to some newer technology. For example: The latest operating systems have increased the demand for onboard memory. PCs upgraded to Windows 10/11 will benefit from expanding RAM to 8GB. SSDs (Solid State Drives) are inexpensive, fast and reliable. Any upgrade of an older PC should include replacing the old HDD (Hard Disc Drive) with a new SSD (solid state drive). SSDs are faster, more reliable and use less energy.

While smart phones are great devices for mobile communications and perfectly adequate internet terminals for those with 20/20 eyesight, most “over thirty “adults enjoy the comfort of a big screen and some peripheral devices when “surfing the net.” PCs are here to stay for a while yet

John Van Zante’s Critter Corner

If My Dog Gets Any Fatter, He’s Going to Beep when He Backs Up!

Older pets gain weight easier. My dog is 13 and he no longer wants to go for walks. He doesn’t go, so I don’t go.

What causes pets to gain weight? The same thing that causes us to gain weight. If we eat too much and exercise too little, we’re going to gain weight.

Experts say most pets prefer to be fed twice per day. The same amount in the morning and again at night. My buddy fed his dog once every evening. It always acted like it was starving, so he fed it more. Of course, it ate fast. If you feed me once per day, I’m going to eat as fast when dinner is served.

Letters from page 6

suffered greatly these past 30 days (with intense, relentless pain) -- but now you are finally recuperating.

When I read the very last words of Friedrich’s email to you, I broke down and cried uncontrollably, as we embraced. And then he smiled and pointed to the ‘mouse’ and signalled for me to be the special one to hit “Send.”

After sending off your email, I smiled and whispered through tearful eyes: “Mr. Davis will forever be my Viking King.”

My buddy was battling the weight he gained during the holidays. He wasn’t getting any exercise and had stopped walking his dog, who also gained weight.

One survey says that there are 41 million dogs in America and 17 million of them are either overweight or obese. While veterinarians consider half of their patients to be overweight, less than 20% of owners think their pets are overweight.

A leading cause of weight gain for dogs is table scraps. It’s tempting to give in to a begging face. But our pets don’t need scraps and it’s not good for them.

“Eyeballing” how much you feed your pet can be a problem. Ask your vet how much your pet should be eating, then stick to it.

Some pets “graze” throughout the day. This can work in single pet homes. But if you have more than one pet, they’re going to compete for the food.

Now that we know this, what do we do?

• Have a plan that includes diet and exercise.

• No crash or trendy diets for you or your pet.

• You’re creating healthy, new habits. It could take some time.

Pets with ideal weight live 15% longer. That should be reason enough .

I can never repay you for giving me Friedrich, but I can tell you how much I value and cherish you Mr. Lyle e. Davis, for all you have done to make this a better world as your email explains.

Happy New Year, Mr. Davis! 2023 will be a better year, just you wait and see!

be excluded, he says. “If you have insurance, it may be covered.”

Failing to consider alternatives

There are less expensive ways to insure your trip, says Laura Heidt, the insurance desk manager at Brownell Travel. “If you don’t care about insuring your trip costs, and are only interested in the medical coverage, good policies can cost as little as $50,” she says. Heidt also recommends an air medical transport membership like Medjet, which evacuates you in case of a medical emergency.

Goldwyn was talking to a friend … “I ran into George Kaufman the other day. He was at my house having dinner.”

Goldwyn once declined an invitation to attend a New Orleans Mardi Gras party saying, “I wouldn’t go even if they had it in the streets.”

Making plans for an exotic vacation Goldwyn said he wanted to go … ‘somewhere where the hand of man has never set foot.’

After returning to Hollywood from a trip to England, Goldwyn assessed the international situation: “I’ve just come from Drowning Street, so I know what I’m talking about.”

During that trip to England Sam was shown an ancient sun dial. How does it work, Goldwyn asked? “With the shadow moving with to progress of the sun,” he was told, to which he replied, “What will they think of next?”

When discussing the dangers of the atom bomb, Goldwyn warned “... not to underestimate the power of nuclear energy. It’s dynamite” he explained.

Getting tired of debating with a British agent, Goldwyn declared he was going out “... for some tea and trumpets.”

A secretary in Goldwyn’s office asked if she could toss out some old files. He agreed, but cautioned, “Be sure you make copies before you throw them out.’

After previewing his Academy Award-winning 1946 blockbuster “Best Years of Our Lives,” Goldwyn affirmed: “I don’t care if it never makes a nickel as long as everyone in the United States sees it.”

Goldwyn once told a writer, “Sex will outlive us all.”

Goldwyn promised a young actor he had just signed, “you stick with me and in one year you’ll have your foot in Sid Gramman’s chow mein.”

A writer who was leaving the company went to see the boss and declared that during his time he had never heard a single “Goldwynism.” The mogul replied: “It always makes me very unhappy to say goodbye to a clog in my wheel,”

Note: Many of Goldwyn’s above malaprops were taken from author Peter Hay’s 1990 book, “Movie Anecdotes.”

more comfortable and feel more like family, since both the newborn and the mother are taken care of in the same hospital. We’re looking forward to being able to expand our extraordinary care to so many more families throughout San Diego and beyond.”

Palomar Health Escondido and Poway Birth Centers earned a “High Performing” rating in Best Hospitals for Maternity. “High Performing” is the highest rating U.S. News awards for that type of care, which supports the organization’s mission to provide world-class care to each and every patient.

With the NICU being steps away from Palomar Health Escondido’s extraordinary maternity unit, there will most likely be an increase of patients who need more dedicated care, resulting in more newborns who may need advanced intensive care.

The organization understands the importance of parents being close to their newborns in the first moments of their lives. Now with this expansion and a with a high demand for the neonatal intensive care unit throughout San Diego, Palomar Health Escondido will be able to serve an even greater number of families, who need specialized care.

“For us, this NICU expansion will not only relieve stress of our newborn parents, but also bring families closer together,” said Diane Hansen, President & CEO of Palomar Health. “Parents will be

storms out the door. Dave jumps up and follows her. In the parking lot, he sees her getting into a cab. He runs and manages to jump in beside her before she can slam the door shut. He tries desperately to tell her the stripper must have mistaken him for someone else, but his wife just screams at him at the top of her lungs, punching him in the chest and calling him every filthy name in the book.

The cabby turns around and says, “Damn, looks like you picked up a real bitch tonight, Dave!”

Worry

There are only two things to worry about:

Either you are well or you are sick. If you are well, there’s nothing to worry about. But if you are sick, there are only two things to worry about: Either you get well, or you

Century. The sandwiches have hundreds of variations, with chefs coming up with new versions all the time.

While there’s an endless variety of good breads used to make these open-faced sandwiches, the Danes usually make them with dark rye bread. Chefs prefer wholegrain breads for their firmness so that they can cut the slices as thin as possible. When they use white bread, they usually toast it.

(Danish open sandwich (smørrebrød) on dark rye bread (almost covered) with breaded xxx fish, salad, cucumber, shrimps, blackcolored lumpfish roe (sort stenbiderrogn) and tomato.)

Crunchy cucumber, fresh dill and gravlax top thinly sliced rye bread for a delightful Danish appetizer. Smørrebrød—which translates in Danish to “buttered bread”—are endlessly creative open-face sandwiches, meant to be eaten with a knife and fork as a light meal. Here we make appetizer-size smørrebrød, perfect for entertaining.

Insurance Commissioner Lara alerts Californians about coverage for floods and mudslides caused by wildfires

With powerful winter storms increasing the threat of mudslides, especially for people in wildfire burn areas who are even more vulnerable, Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara issued a formal Notice to insurance companies reminding them of their legal duty to cover damage from any future mudslide or similar disaster that is caused by recent wildfires that weakened hillsides.

Many people may not be aware that homeowners’ and commercial insurance policies typically exclude flood, mudslide, debris flow, and other similar disasters — unless they are directly or indirectly caused by a recent wildfire or another peril covered by the applicable insurance policy. The Department of Insurance has posted a fact sheet for consumers to answer questions about what their policies cover.

Flooding is the nation’s number one natural disaster. While floods occur in every area of the country, many property owners remain unprepared. Standard homeown-

ers insurance does not cover flood damage. Therefore, it is important to know what options are available to protect your assets from flood losses. The U.S. Congress established the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) in 1968. The NFIP is a Federal program enabling property owners in participating communities to purchase insurance as a protection against flood losses. Participating in the NFIP is based on an agreement between communities and the Federal Government. The program is administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and provides flood insurance protection to property owners, renters, and business owners in communities that participate in the program.

The Department of Insurance can help consumers with insurance coverage or claim questions. Contact us at our consumer hotline at 800-927-4357 or through online chat or email at insurance.ca.gov.
