by Janet Spencer The word poker comes from the German word “pochen” meaning “to brag.” Come along with Tidbits as we deal the cards! CARD FACTS • On a deck of cards, the king of spades represents David, King of Israel; Clubs represents Alexander the Great, King of Macedonia; Hearts is Charlemagne, King of France; and Diamonds is Caesar Augustus, Emperor of Rome. • The symbols on a deck of cards were invented to represent the four classes of men: hearts represented the clergy; spades for warriors; clubs were originally leaves and represented the peasants; and merchants were represented by diamonds. This design was invented around 1392. • The word spades comes from the Spanish word for sword, “espada.”

Briarwood Health Care Center has openings to assist you or loved one following surgery as our patients are literally WALKING OUT ON US! Recent surgery, hospitalization or additional care required short term? WE CAN HELP!

• Clover comes from the Anglo-Saxon word “cloefer” meaning club. Hercules had a club which had three heads, and the clover plant has bracts of three leaves. The club on decks of cards come from the clover plant. • In card games, sometimes a marker or buck is placed in front of the person who is to deal the next game. Every time the deal passes, players also “pass the buck.”

FAMOUS GAMES • In 1921, millionaire Howard Hunt won his first oil well in a game of 5-card stud in Arkansas. • A banker in Denver arrived at work one morning to find four men waiting for him on the steps. They had been playing poker all night, and one man insisted on taking the banker aside and showing him the contents of a sealed envelope. Inside were five cards— four kings and an ace. It was his poker hand. The pot, he explained to the banker, was worth $4,000 and the other players had given him 30 minutes to raise $5,000 to call the last bet. He wanted to borrow the money from the bank with his poker hand as security. The banker refused— but just then the bank president arrived. After the situation was explained to him, he agreed to the loan and accompanied the poker players back to the game. He returned within a few minutes with the amount of the loan, along with an additional $500 in interest. “If you were a poker player,” he told the other banker, “you’d know good collateral when you see it.” • Black Bart was a notorious highwayman in California who became famous during gold rush days for politely holding up stage coaches and leaving bits of poetry behind. One day he robbed a stage coach north of Sacramento. In the stagecoach were seven men and one pretty little schoolmarm. He robbed each of them in turn, but the lady challenged him to a hand of poker. If she won, she would keep her valuables. If he won, he would keep her things and also collect a kiss from her. He was so surprised at her gumption and grit that he agreed to the terms. A deck of cards was produced and the game progressed. She won— and he kept his word. Local citizens were so impressed with her luck that they presented her with a gold watch, and the stage company gave her a check for $1,000.

FAMOUS GAMES (cont’d) • The story goes that a poker game started up on a steamboat. However, the players discovered they had no chips on board. They found some ears of dried corn and shelled them, using the kernels to bet with. In the middle of the game, one player found an opportunity to sneak back into the storeroom where the corn was kept, and in the dark he shelled another ear’s worth of kernels, figuring on sneaking these ‘chips’ into the game. It was unfortunate for him that the ear he chose in the dark was red. No word on what happened to him when he laid these counterfeit chips on the table, but one report states that his comrades tossed him overboard. • King Kalakaua ruled Hawaii, and he was very fond of poker. During one game a messenger arrived with the urgent news that the natives were restless and beginning to riot. The king declared that as soon as the hand was finished they would all go home. There was quite a large pot, and just after the king put his final bet on the table, gunfire was heard. “Run!” cried King Kalakaua. They all rushed outside and commenced running down the road. When they figured they were a safe distance from the guns, they stopped and finished playing the hand while sitting in the middle of the road. The king won the hand— but only because he mistook a joker for a king in the dark. No one corrected him because he was, after all, the king, and also because he had been losing all summer long. • Songwriter Ira Gershwin was not good at poker. After one disastrous game, he turned to his friends and announced, “I take an oath. I’ll never pick up a card again!” He paused, then added, “Unless, of course, I have guests who want to play... Or unless I am a guest in another man’s house...” He thought for a moment and said, “Or whatever circumstances arise.”

STRANGE BUT TRUE by Samantha Weaver

● It was much-loved Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw who made the following sage observation: “It is dangerous to be sincere unless you are also stupid.” ● If you find brushing your teeth to be tedious, you might want to check out the Blizzident. The makers of this new product use a 3D scan of your teeth to create a custom toothbrush that looks like a mouthpiece lined with bristles. Supposedly, all you have to do is insert the Blizzident in your mouth, bite down and release 10 times, and -- voila! -clean teeth in 6 seconds. Be prepared to pay for the convenience, though; a Blizzident of your very own will set you back $299. The toothbrush will last for a year, though, and replacement bristles are $89.

• A famous poker player nicknamed Herrmann the Great played games all over the world in the 1890s. One day he decided to pull the wool over the eyes of a naive player. Herrmann was a great sleight-of-hand master and was assured of winning using shady techniques. When the other player insisted on playing with real money instead of chips, Herrmann agreed assuming he just liked flashing his money around. Herrmann let the man win just often enough to keep suspicion down, then socked it to him, taking him for $300. There he ended the game, explaining to the ‘sucker’ that he’d been cheating, and offering the man his $300 back. The man got huffy, refused the money, and walked out. Herrmann had a good laugh, and took the wad of money to a restaurant for a meal. When he offered a $20 bill to pay, he was informed that the bill was counterfeit. The entire $300 was counterfeit— and the man who was supposed to have been ‘suckered’ made off with Herrmann’s real money. • John Montagu, Earl of Sandwich, was a compulsive gambler in the 1700s. He was so reluctant to leave a card game even for a meal that he had a servant bring him a piece of meat between two slices of bread so he could eat with one hand and play cards with the other. The new invention was dubbed a sandwich. • The Marx brothers were playing poker one night with a talent agent who suggested that Julius, Adolph, Herbert, Leonard, and Milton Marx change their names to Groucho, Harpo, Zeppo, Chico, and Gummo.

● Those who study such things say that by the year 2020, more data will be created in a single hour than had been created in the entire world over the 30,000 years leading up to the 21st century. ● Here’s an experiment for you: Find a piece of paper and write the word “suns.” Turn the paper upside down. It still says “suns.” ● There are more public libraries in the United States than there are McDonald’s restaurants. For the moment, at any rate.

Women In History


• Born in 1908 in Queens, New York, Josephine Esther Mentzer went by her middle name. Her mother had wanted her middle name to be Esty, after a favorite aunt. However, when it came time to fill out the birth certificate, she thought that Esty was too unusual and no one would be able to spell it. She chose Esther as a middle name instead. At home, the child’s pet name became Esty. • Esther’s uncle, a chemist, began mixing up skin creams to sell, and Esther began selling them in resorts, beauty parlors, and salons. Sales were good and Esther began developing her own cosmetics, promoting them by offering women tiny free samples. • When Esther was getting her hair done one day, the salon owner asked how she kept her skin so flawless. The next day, Esther brought in samples of her products. The salon owner was so impressed that he gave Esther counter space in the shop, which led to counter space in other shops as well. • In 1930 she married an immigrant named Joseph Lauter, who later changed the spelling of his last name to Lauder. Esther decided to change the spelling of her middle name to her family’s pet name for her, changing the spelling so that looked elegant and vaguely foreign. She became Estee Lauder. • In 1944 she opened an office in New York City, naming the company after herself. She had four products: a lotion, two face creams, and a cleansing oil. Later she added rouge, lipstick, and make-up bases. • One story told is that there was only one employee to answer the phone in her office, who would change their voice to represent the billing department or a shipping clerk or the advertising office. • When Estee budgeted $50,000 to spend on advertising, New York City ad agencies laughed at that small amount. She spent the money on free samples which she distributed at fashion shows and through mass mailings. That was all she needed. Business took off. • By 1948, Saks Fifth Avenue was carrying her creams, followed by Neiman Marcus and Harrods. • Business took a huge leap upwards when she introduced her first fragrance, called “Youth Dew” in 1953. Most ladies dabbed a tiny bit of perfume behind each ear, and a single bottle of perfume could last for years. Estee promoted her fragrance as something ladies should add to their bathwater, which used up the fragrance much more quickly. In the first year, she sold 50,000 bottles. By 1984, she was selling 150 million bottles a year. • She made a habit of sending her products to all the richest and most famous ladies of the day, correctly guessing that when movie stars and royalty were seen using her products, it would provide valuable free advertising. • Lauder was the only woman on Time magazine’s 1998 list of the twenty most influential business geniuses of the 20th century. She received the Presidential Medal of Freedom and was inducted to the Junior Achievement U.S. Business Hall of Fame in 1988. • She was the subject of a TV documentary in 1985 called “Estee Lauder: The Sweet Smell of Success.” • Estee Lauder died in 2004 of a heart attack in Manhattan at the age of 97. She lived long enough to see her products sold in over 120 countries. They are found at nearly every upscale department store in the U.S. and the company she founded is on the Fortune 500 list. She was one of the wealthiest self-made women in the history of the U.S.

“NATIONAL” WORDS (continued): • French: Chefs know what it means to “french” a food item. It’s a verb that means to cut into thin strips, like, well, french fries. (And yes, that’s how the finger-friendly potato dish took its name.) Green beans are another item commonly prepared in this manner.

49 • Colombian: This term means different things to different people, depending on how you get your “jones.” Narcotics dealers may refer to their products as Colombian, although the actual source is often unknown. Luckily, the majority of us prefer a bit of legal Colombian, as in the coffee grown in the South American nation. The prevalence of coffee shops throughout America is proof enough that many of us just can’t get along in the morning without a hot cup of Colombian.

• Chinese: The generic term “chinese” now represents types of food that are very different from the meals that are (or ever were) served in China. That said, the same argument could be made about what we consider “American” food. Hamburgers? Ice cream? Hot dogs? Pizza? Our national favorites seem to have originated everywhere except in the United States!

If you don’t have a computer, it’s worth a trip to the library to read this online article and click all the links to even more information. Go online to www. and click on Managing Medicare. Some of the sections are: Getting started, Medicare Advantage, Medigap and Medicare Part D. (You can also read parts of the online report in the November issue of the magazine.) Most valuable is the link to rankings of health insurance plans. Click on it, then click to find your state. It compares all the available plans in easy to understand chart form, just like they do comparing appliances or cars. Consumer Reports got its rankings from the National Committee for Quality Assurance. By comparing the information in the Medicare site with the info that Consumer Reports is providing, you’ll have a much clearer idea of what each plan really offers. You’ll need to know: what does each plan cover; how much does each plan cost; and which doctors and hospitals are in the plan? (If you’re not ready for Medicare and will be on an Obamacare plan, this report will help you with plan rankings.) If you don’t know whether you have the original Medicare or a Medicare Advantage plan, you can find out by calling 1-800-MEDICARE (800-6334227). You’ll need the number that’s on your card or statement. When a representative answers, just ask if your plan is original or Medicare Advantage.

“My husband’s going to a casino in central Asia.” “Tibet?” “Of course, why else would he go!”

Tools 4 life By DR. Jim coyle Fear Aint In This House

Do bad things seem to follow you wherever you go? Scriptures tell of a man who lived in the shadow of his fears and anxieties. His name was Lot and he lived in an environment that was headed for destruction (Sodom and Gomorrah). Through divine assistance he had an opportunity to leave his past and move on to something much greater, but his fear (False Expectations Appearing Real) continued to control him as he parked in a pot hole (Zoar). His fear caused him to settle for less. The result was that he had to move again as his anxieties followed him. Our fears keep us on the run and our potential is never realized. Lot eventually made it to the mountain where he was divinely directed but the costs were great. I encourage you to change your residence from fear to faith (Fear Aint In This House). Get to the faith mountain and find a cave with God.
