by Kathy Wolfe Who doesn’t like cookies of one sort or another? This week, Tidbits is taking a look at this treat’s origin, along with how some of our favorites got their start. • The word “cookie” has its origins in the Dutch language from their word keokje, meaning “little cake.” It’s thought that cookies originated as a method of testing cakes. Bakers used a small amount of cake batter to test the oven temperature. Persia was probably the first country to make cookies, as it was one of the first to cultivate sugar. • Home-baked cookies come in several styles. Pressed cookies are formed by pressing dough through a press to form fancy shapes. Drop cookies are made by merely dropping spoonfuls of dough onto a baking sheet while the dough for bar cookies is spread in a shallow pan and cut into bars after baking. Icebox cookies are created by shaping dough into a log, which is refrigerated, then sliced and baked. Cookies cutters are used to make rolled cookies into decorative shapes. American tinsmiths began fashioning cookie cutters by hand in the 1700s.

• Springerle are traditional Christmas cookies from Bavaria and Austria, and are small anise-flavored cookies with an image stamped on top, imprinted from a carved rolling pin or mold. Centuries ago, these were used to tell the Christmas story to the illiterate by stamping Bible scenes from the Nativity into the dough. A 14th-century hand-carved wooden springerle mold featuring images of the Easter lamb, the world’s oldest known mold, was discovered in Switzerland. • No matter what you call it, it’s still a cookie. In England, they’re biscuits, in Spain, galletas, while Germans say keks. The Italians use several different names, most commonly amaretti and biscotti. The word biscotti translates “twice cooked,” as the dough is formed into a log and baked, then sliced and baked again. • The tradition of Girl Scout cookies dates back to 1917, just five years after Juliette Low founded the organization. A scout troop in Muskogee, Oklahoma, baked cookies and held a sale in their high school cafeteria as part of a service project. Over the next two decades, Girl Scouts across America held sales of cookies baked by their own troops, packaging them in wax paper, and selling door-to-door for 35 cents a dozen. In 1934, Philadelphia Girl Scouts became the first to sell commerciallybaked cookies, and within two years, the national organization licensed the idea. During World War II, when there was a shortage of sugar, flour, and butter, the Girl Scouts sold calendars as their service project. By 1948, 29 commercial bakers were licensed to bake the three varieties – peanut butter sandwich, shortbread, and chocolate mints. Today, cookie sales during the short eight-week time period when the Scouts hold their sale are close to $790 million.

Tools 4 life By DR. Jim coyle

Am I Running or Am I on the Run? Am I chasing or am I being chased? Am I pursuing or am I being pursued? Every one of us shares a

common adversary that is in active pursuit to keep us from moving forward and living up to the fullest potential that we were created for. Our battle is in our head, heart, and hands not the situations or events that flatten our tires. If I am parked, the rear view mirror is useless. The key to a victorious life is to keep moving forward in the chase for God’s heart and plan. Use the rear view mirror as a tool to see where you have come from. “As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God”. Psalm 42:1-2 Push the pedal to the metal and keep moving forward.

• One common belief for the origin of fortune cookies dates back to the 12th century, when Chinese soldiers defended their territory from Mongolian invaders. Legend has it that the Mongolians didn’t particularly care for Chinese lotus nut paste cakes, so Chinese soldiers hid messages containing details of their uprising written on rice paper inside the cakes to notify the troops. A more recent explanation cites a Cantonese immigrant working as a baker in Los Angeles putting slips of paper inside his cookies with words of encouragement and good “fortune” and handing them out to the poor and homeless street people. In 1960, a new machine was invented that folded fortune cookies in half much faster. • After his service with the Air Force, Wally Amos went to work as a talent agent with the William Morris Agency. His trick to persuade celebrities to meet with him and work out a deal was to send home-baked chocolate chip cookies home with them. It became apparent that he was better at cookies than as an agent, and in 1975, Wally “Famous” Amos opened his first store in Los Angeles, selling $300,000 his first year, jumping to over $1 million the following year. • The world’s favorite cookie is the Oreo, now sold in more than 100 countries around the globe. The very first Oreo rolled out of a Manhattan bakery in March, 1912, and was sold shortly thereafter in Hoboken, New Jersey. The first Oreos were packaged in bulk tins and sold by weight, about 30 cents a lb. back then. Today, they’re baked at 21 different bakeries and over 20.5 million of these favorites are eaten worldwide every single day. Just one batch of Oreos requires 18 million lbs. of cocoa.

COOKIES (continued): • Another favorite is the Toll House cookie, which is the original name of chocolate chip cookies. In 1937, Ruth Wakefield was the proprietor of the Toll House Restaurant in Whitman, Massachusetts. The restaurant was housed in a former 1709 toll house, a station where stage coach passengers ate while the horses were exchanged, and a toll was paid for using the highway. Ruth regularly served a popular cookie, the “Butter Drop Do,” which called for baker’s chocolate. Having run out of the chocolate one day, she chopped up a bar of Nestles semisweet chocolate and stirred the pieces into the dough, expecting them to melt and spread throughout the cookie. The chunks did not melt, and Ruth had a new creation, which she dubbed Toll House Crunch Cookies, which became an immediate hit. The recipe was published in a Boston newspaper soon after. • It’s believed that chocolate brownies also came about by an ingredient mishap, that is, a cook neglecting to add baking powder to chocolate cake batter. Without the leavening action of the baking powder to increase the volume of the cake, a denser cookie-like cake was produced. Others say it was intentionally created by a chef at Chicago’s Palmer House Hotel during the 1893 Columbian Exhibition. The 1897 Sears and Roebuck catalog published what is thought to be the first known recipe for brownies, and it became so popular, the company offered a brownie mix in their catalog. • Philadelphia inventor James Henry Mitchell is credited with inventing a double dough sheeting machine and funnel device that made the Fig Newton possible. He patented his invention in 1892, and production began on the little jam-filled confections which were named after the community of Newton, Massachusetts, which was near the factory where the first Newtons were created.

HARRIET TUBMAN November 19th 2013

December 22– January 19

Going green at home puts more green in your pocket. Use the surplus to keep the momentum going, Capricorn. Whispers at the office get louder.

January 20– February 18

Dashes of yellow remind you of the importance of a positive outlook. Cheer up, Aquarius. Life will get better. A fitness goal is reached ahead of schedule.

February 19– March 20

You’re back in the black, and it’s time to celebrate, Pisces. Invite some pals over for a takeout feast. A relative meddles a little too much.

March 21– April 19

Feeling blue, Aries? You won’t be for long, as old friends and new drop by. Put out the welcome mat and prepare to have a ball. An e-mail clues you in.

April 20– May 20

Life these days is like looking at the world through rose-colored glasses. Everything is good, Taurus, even the not-so-good. A project ends with a flourish.

May 21– June 21 Very few things in life are black and white. Usually there’s some gray, particularly with an issue at the office. There is much work left to do, Gemini.

June 22– July 22

Red faces alert you to the frustration growing at work. Resolve it now, Cancer. Pops of scarlet here and there in the home decor lift spirits.

July 23– August 22 Golden moments come only once, Leo. Make this one a memory for years to come. An idea has potential but requires more research in order to pan out.

August 23– September 22 Color you happy this week, Virgo, as old goals are reached and new ones are made. An orange gelatin dish brings back many fond memories.

September 23– October 22

A senior makes remarkable strides. Take them out to lunch to celebrate, Libra. The moody blues lift at home with a gift of green.

October 23– November 21

A youngster is pretty in pink, and it would pay for you to notice, Scorpio. Ties once thought broken are stronger than ever. A friend returns a favor.

November 22– December 21

A brief glance at the brown foliage outside reveals your inner state. You’ll be feeling pretty blah until a blast from the past returns. Enjoy, Sagittarius.

Harriet Tubman risked her life for hundreds of people during the American Civil War era. Let’s look into the life of this Underground Railroad “conductor.” • Born into slavery in Maryland in 1820, at age six, Harriet was given nursemaid duty watching a tiny baby. Any time the baby cried, Harriet was whipped, and later told of a day when she was thrashed five times before breakfast. At age 12, when she refused to help tie up a captured slave who was about to be whipped, Harriet was struck in the head by a weight thrown by her owner. The result was a lifelong injury that caused severe headaches, seizures, and unexpected attacks of narcolepsy. • At age 29, Tubman became quite ill, which caused her value as a slave to drop considerably. Although her owner repeatedly attempted to sell her, no buyer could be found. Because she feared being separated from her relatives, she began to pray that God would make her owner change his ways. When no change occurred, and a sale was being finalized, Harriet made a change to her prayer. In her words, “I began to pray, ‘Oh, Lord, if you ain’t never going to change that man’s heart, kill him, Lord, and take him out of the way.’” A week later, the owner died. When his widow began liquidating the estate, Harriet escaped to Philadelphia. Shortly afterward, she returned to Maryland and guided her relatives to freedom. • Over the next 11 years, Tubman returned to Maryland nearly 20 times, rescuing over 300 slaves, leading them through the various stations of the Underground Railroad. She was given the nickname Moses, after the Bible hero who led his people out of Egyptian slavery. Tubman was never captured, nor were any of her rescued slaves. • When the Civil War broke out, Harriet went to work for the Union Army, initially as a cook and a nurse. But when it was discovered she was very familiar with the Confederate area and terrain, she became a mapmaker, a scout, and a spy. She would frequently enter towns under Confederate control in disguise, wandering the streets gathering valuable intelligence information for the Union’s military leaders. • In 1863, Tubman became the first woman to lead an armed assault during the Civil War. Working with Colonel James Montgomery, she guided the Combahee River Raid through a dense forest and swamps in South Carolina, an effort that freed 750 slaves. Through her intricate spy network, she knew the Confederate positions and location of their supply lines. • After the War, Harriet returned to her Auburn, New York home to care for her aging parents. She dedicated her time to caring for orphans and invalids, as well as promoting freedmen’s schools in the south. She married a Union soldier and adopted an infant daughter. • Tubman did not receive any salary for her Civil War efforts, so was ineligible for any military pension. But late in life, Congress granted her a special pension of $20 per month for her courageous endeavors. Along with royalties she received from publishing her biography, she founded a retirement home for impoverished former slaves. It was here in the Tubman Home for the Aged that she passed away in 1913. The tiny 5’2” former slave who had endured a debilitating illness and could not read or write, was laid to rest with military honors.

MOMENTS IN TIME The History Channel ● On Nov. 18, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln boards a train for Gettysburg, Pa., to deliver a short speech at the dedication of a cemetery. The Gettysburg Address became one of the most famous speeches in American history. ● On Nov. 21, 1927, Time magazine puts the week-old Holland Tunnel on its cover. The tunnel, which runs under the Hudson River between New York City and Jersey City, N.J., requires 84 ventilating fans that replace all the air in the tunnel every 90 seconds. ● On Nov. 23, 1936, legendary Mississippi Delta bluesman Robert Johnson is recorded for the very first time in a San Antonio recording studio. He spent only five days in the studio, recording 41 total takes of 29 different songs. Almost immediately, Johnson’s recordings gained a cult following among blues collectors. ) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Should You Review Your Medicare Plan? With only a few weeks to go during this annual signup period, there are several reasons many seniors aren’t making changes to their Medicare health plans. Only 15 percent of us made changes last year or plan to make changes in the future. According to a news release by Allsup, here is the biggest reason seniors don’t make the changes: The process of making plan changes can be complex. Comparing the plans and making choices can be complicated. However, by not taking the time to compare plans, seniors can miss out on benefits and savings. Medicare plans can change, both in cost and what they cover. Seniors can find themselves unexpectedly paying more in copays or deductibles, or discovering after the fact that their plan no longer covers certain procedures. In a survey, 43 percent of seniors said they’d had that happen to them -- where Medicare didn’t pick up the costs. There are good reasons to review your plans. You may need a new plan if ... ● Your health has changed, especially if it requires new prescription drugs or visits to a specialist. ● You move to another location, away from your plan’s service area. ● Your local provider changes, for example, if your physician retires or a facility changes. ● A drug you need is no longer on the list for your current plan due to changes in drug coverage. There are a few ways to get help with selecting your plan. Allsup [] is a fee-based service that can help. You also can go online to or call Medicare at 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-6334227). Remember that your 54-day window to make changes ends Dec. 7. Matilda Charles regrets that she cannot personally answer reader questions, but will incorporate them into her column whenever possible.

STRANGE BUT TRUE by Samantha Weaver

● Those who study such things say that 40 percent of all modern Chinese people are descended from just three men (dubbed “super-grandfathers”) during the Neolithic period. *** Thought for the Day: “In the United States there is more space where nobody is than where anybody is. That’s what makes America what it is.” -- Gertrude Stein (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Unlike wire shelving, Lifespan Closets are based off of a Wedgerail hanging system, partitions and shelves and can be installed by the typical homeowner, using a few simple tools. Doors and drawers are available for hidden storage, as well as baskets, jewelry inserts, belt/tie racks, pull out mirror and valet rods. Deciding how to store the “things” in our homes begs the question-what to keep out and what to hide. Lifespan Closets works for every type of thing…the seen, the unseen and the yet undecided. Versatile, simple and affordable…what more could you ask for? With the designers at Cantebury Kitchens, reorganizing your space can be fun and exciting.

Space is one of the three primary elements experts look at when building or remodeling a home: Space, light and detail. Cantebury Kitchens and Lifespan Closets help you make the most of the spaces in your home- thereby giving you more room for the life you desire.

Herds of elephants from all over Africa were summoned to a meeting in the jungle, as their national leader took his place on the stage, one of the African elephants trumpeted impatiently: “Come on, tell us what this is all about. We’re all ears.”

Safe Step Tubs have received the Ease-of-Use Commendation from the Arthritis Foundation



● If you’re planning a trip to Washington state anytime soon, you might want to head to Olympic National Park and take the Spruce Railroad Trail up to Lake Crescent, a 600-foot deep mountain lake. It has a rather spooky history, with Bigfoot sightings and numerous accounts of ghosts and inexplicable sounds in the nearby woods. The native Kallam Indians refused to fish in the lake for fear of stirring up the evil spirits that resided there. Lake Crescent also is the setting for the Lady of the Lake. It seems that in 1940, two local fishermen (not afraid of evil spirits, it seems) found a body there. It turned out to be the remains of one Hallie Illingworth, a waitress who had disappeared in 1937. Her husband had murdered her, weighted her body down and disposed of it in the depths of the lake. But it was those very depths -- or, more accurately, the cold water in those depths -- that preserved the body almost perfectly and made identification possible three years after her death.

Tips for Designing Your Closet Space Most people feel that they have a lack of closet space. However, you might be surprised just how much space you have if it were better utilized. Below are some tips to help you create that much needed "extra" space in your closet. 1. Start by making a list of all the necessary items that need to go into a particular closet. 2. Then categorize each item based on the best way they can be stored. (ie hanging, drawers, etc.) 3. From here we can create an example for you to create a mental picture of how these items will fit into the space you have.
