• In 1940, Rey and his wife fled from the Nazi invasion of Paris. They were caught escaping on their bicycles and arrested as spies. An officer searching their belongings found the unpublished manuscript of “Curious George,” and after reading it, he let the Rey’s go, saying no spy could write such a wonderful story. • A.A. Milne gave his son Christopher Robin a stuffed bear for his first birthday in 1921. He named the bear Winnie the Pooh after Winnie, a real bear at the London Zoo. As his son grew up, Milne made up bedtime stories about adventures his son had with his Teddy Bear. A friend and editor of a children’s magazine thought they were so charming, he suggested publishing them. “Winnie-the-Pooh” was published in 1926. • E.B. White based “Charlotte’s Web” on his own experiences at his farm in Maine. White said, “One day when I was on my way to feed the pig, I began feeling sorry for the animal because, like most pigs, he was doomed to die. This made me sad. So I started thinking of ways to save a pig’s life. In the barn I had been watching a big, gray spider at her work and was impressed by how clever she was weaving her web. Gradually I worked the spider into the story, a story of friendship and salvation on the farm.” • In 1939, Ludwig Bemelman wrote the first “Madeline” book in Pete’s Tavern in New York City using the backs of the tavern’s menus as writing paper. The story was based on his mother’s life as a young girl in Bavaria and his memories as the smallest boy in boarding school. He named the main character after his wife Madeline.

WEEK 1 Dartmouth College from 1921 • While attending to 1925, Theodor DEC 30 - JAN Suise 5 Geisel became editorin-chief of the Jack-O-Lantern, Dartmouth’s humor magazine. He got into a bit of trouble when he and his friends were caught throwing a drinking party, which was against prohibition laws and school policy. He was banned from all extracurricular activities, including the magazine, so he began signing his work with the pen name “Seuss.” He got the idea for his by Karapublished Kovalchik & Sandy first book,Wood “And To Think I Saw It on Mulberry Street” while on a ship. He began putting words to the cadence of the boat’s engines. The phrase he kept repeating was, “And to think that I saw it on Mulberry Street,” which became the foundation of a tale about a young boy who imagines a parade that grows more and more outrageous.

• In 1941, during lunch with a publisher in New York, a famous French Air Force pilot and author named Antoine de Saint-Exupery doodled a picture of a little boy on a napkin. “Who’s that?” the publisher asked. “Oh,” Saint-Exupery reportedly replied, “just a little fellow I carry around in my heart.” The publisher suggested Saint-Exupery write2a book about the character. FILLER PAGE “The Little Prince” was published in 1943, one 1Q08 year before Saint-Exupery’s death.

A STORY IS BORN (continued): • The girls loved the story and one of them, Alice Liddell, asked Dodgson to write it down for her. For Christmas in 1864 he gave Alice a handwritten copy of the manuscript entitled “Alice’s Adventures Under Ground,” dedicating it as “a Christmas gift to a dear child in memory of a summer’s day.” The book was published in 1865. • In 1990, while on a crowded train from Manchester to London, the idea for Harry Potter suddenly “fell into her head,” says author Joanne Kathleen Rowling. Rowling sent her manuscript “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” to several prospective agents in 1995. After eight rejections by publishers, an offer came in but with one suggestion — that she change her pen name to a more gender-neutral name to address the fear that males in the targeted age group wouldn’t be interested in reading a novel written by a woman. She agreed and decided to use J. K. Rowling instead. • No one author is known to have written the story of Cinderella. Many versions of the folk tale have been shared for thousands of years throughout the world. The oldest recorded Cinderella story dates back to first century B.C. in ancient Greece. The tale is of a “rosy-cheeked” girl, who lived in the Greek colony of Naucratis in ancient Egypt. No matter how the story is told, the main character is always a young woman living in unfortunate circumstances that are suddenly changed to remarkable fortune. The theme remains constant — overcoming unjust oppression to find triumph and reward.

STRANGE BUT TRUE By Samantha Weaver

● It was revered American comedian Bill Cosby who made the following sage observation: "Human beings are the only creatures that allow their children to come back home." ● Here's a disturbing statistic for parents: If your child is like the average American youth, between the ages of 5 and 15 he or she will see approximately 13,500 people killed on television. ● Most languages change dramatically over time. If we in modern America were to try to read “Beowulf” (which was written in Old English), for instance, only those who have spent time studying the language would be able to make out more than a word or two here and there. If you're from Iceland, however, this isn't the case; the written language there has remained virtually unchanged for more than 1,000 years. Modern Icelanders have no trouble reading sagas that were written in the 10th century. ● Relative to body size, humans -- unsurprisingly -- have larger brains than any other animal. Of non-human animals, it's the bottlenose dolphin that has the largest brain. ● When Great Britain's current Queen Elizabeth -- then Princess Elizabeth -- wed Prince Philip, their wedding cake weighed a whopping 500 pounds. ● As legend has it, in 1288, when Dusseldorf, Germany, was granted its city charter, children all over the city began turning cartwheels for joy. The cartwheel has been an enduring part of the culture there ever since, and in 1937 the city even inaugurated an annual international cartwheel championship. ● Those who study such things claim that when you're playing Monopoly, you're likely to land on Illinois Avenue and the B&O Railroad more than on any other squares.

I didn't realize it, but there our government prints coupons that are good for one gallon of gas at most retailers. I have seen them around, but until recently never took advantage of them, I never realized their actual worth. You probably have one or two just lying around somewhere, now is the time to use them before they lose their value, and it's too late!! The official government name for these coupons is a five dollar bill.

An office technician got a call from a user. The user told the tech that her computer was not working. She described the problem and the tech concluded that the computer needed to be brought in and serviced. He told her to "Unplug the power cord and bring it up here and I will fix it." About fifteen minutes later she shows up at his door with the power cord in her hand.

● On Sept. 12, 1940, a collection of 600 prehistoric cave paintings and 1,500 engravings are discovered in a grotto near Montignac, France. The 5,000- to 17,000-year-old paintings consisted mostly of animal representations. The Lascaux grotto’s main cavern is 66 feet wide and 16 feet high. ● On Sept. 14, 1964, writer John Steinbeck is presented the U.S. Medal of Freedom. Steinbeck had already received numerous honors and awards for his writing, including the 1962 Nobel Prize, and the 1939 Pulitzer Prize for “The Grapes of Wrath.” He also wrote “Tortilla Flat,” “East of Eden” and the novella “Of Mice and Men.” ● On Sept. 18, 1987, cesium-137 is removed from an abandoned cancer-therapy machine in Brazil. Junkyard workers, fascinated by the glowing blue stone inside and completely unaware of its dangers, distributed pieces to friends, relatives and neighbors. Hundreds of people were eventually poisoned by radiation from the substance, and 40 contaminated homes had to be demolished. (c) 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

Sometimes the key to getting a senior discount is just getting up the nerve to ask for one. If we get in the habit of asking for a discount every single time we spend money, think how much we could save. Someone on the Internet has compiled a long list of stores that give discounts to seniors. You can find that list by going to and searching for “106 Stores with Senior Discounts.” There’s even a handy .PDF version you can print out to make sure you don’t miss anything! Categories include Restaurants, Retail and Apparel, Grocery, Travel, Activities and Entertainment, Cell Phones and Miscellaneous. Not only is the amount of the discount noted (either the percentage of the total purchase or a dollar amount), but the day of the week or date during the month, as well as the age it applies to. Some consider us seniors at the age of 50, while others go with age 55, 62 or 65. If you’re a member of AARP, there are dozens of discounts built right into the membership. On the Web site [www.] click on Member Benefits, then Discounts. To name just two of the new discounts, Walgreens offers savings if you show your card, and Michaels has discounts on Tuesdays. There are 15,000 restaurant locations that offer discounts, and travel discounts can be found on car rentals, hotels, cruises and tours. Seniors Discounts [www.seniordiscounts. com] has more than 150,000 businesses listed that give discounts to seniors. There is a fee, however, either $7.95 or $12.95 per year, depending on the level of services you want. Start carrying your AARP card in your pocket! Remember to use the plastic one with the magnetic strip and bar code on the back.

A-1 Home Healthcare Proudly Presents

The United Nations was established after World War II in hopes of creating peaceful resolutions to conflicts between nations. In spite of this effort, between 1945 and 1992 alone, there were 149 major wars around the world, killing more than 23 million people. • Some of the greatest casualties of all wars are children. They are innocent victims who have little choice but to experience the same horrors as their parents. • Children of war are often separated from their families, driven from their homes, left orphaned, killed, maimed, sexually abused or exploited into becoming child soldiers. • In times of war, more children die from starvation and sickness than from bullets and bombs. Those who do survive are often traumatized from the violence and brutality they witness. Many generations of young people are emotionally affected for the rest of their lives. • According to Unicef, during the last decade, it is estimated that child victims have included: two million killed; four to five million disabled; 12 million left homeless; more than one million orphaned or separated from their parents; and some 10 million psychologically traumatized. • One increasing tragedy of war is the use of young children as soldiers. Children are used because they are more expendable and easier to intimidate into doing what they are told. Some children are forced to join military groups as a means of survival because they are provided needed food, clothing and protection, or they are recruited using threats of harm to their person or their family. • There are children who will fight willingly and do so for varied reasons. They may fight to avenge the death of parents and families or like adults, they too may see themselves fighting for social justice or religious beliefs. Whole generations of children have grown up surrounded by violence as an everyday occurrence. This becomes their way of life. • To attempt to end the exploitation of children as solders, the United Nations, in partnership with Unicef, the Special Representative on Violence Against Children and the office for the High Commission of Human Rights, launched a campaign called Zero Under 18, which seeks to end the recruitment and use of child solders. • The organization’s goal is to achieve universal ratification of the Optional Protocol by the year 2012. This Optional Protocol is to enforce among all nations that no child under the age of 18 can participate in hostilities; no child can be forced to serve the national military or irregular armies; and that former child solders will be assisted by governments in finding a new existence after a life of violence, distress and alienation. • Universal ratification means that the world has succeeded in standing together by publicly declaring the end of this inhumane occurrence. Already, 132 countries have signed on to this promise; 53 others have not. These 53 countries are listed on an international List of Shame available at the campaign’s website at www. Sanctions have been proposed against these countries that continue to recruit and use children in armed conflict. • The Human Rights Watch estimates that right now, 200,000 to 300,000 children are serving as soldiers for both rebel groups and government forces in armed conflicts.

Homeowners who prefer pops of bold color may select a neutral shade for the countertop, walls and floor and use colorful towels, rugs and accessories. They can even change out their accessories from time to time to give their bathroom a different look. Homeowners who use their bathrooms for makeup application may want to stick to shades that will flatter their skin tone. Most skin tones have a pink undertone, so warm colors with a hint of pink are ideal for the bathroom. Yellow distorts skin tone, so homeowners should stay away from shades with a hint of yellow. These are just some of the current color trends in kitchen and bathrooms. Of course, the choice is entirely yours. If you hate bold colors, you can go for more subdued tones in your kitchen. If you adore yellow, you can break the rules and paint your bathroom a lemony yellow. Just make sure that you can live with whatever you choose, or you may be repainting sooner than you thought. When selecting your paint, go to a paint store that has qualified staff that can answer all of your questions properly. Before you have them tint your color, be sure to check with them that the type of paint is best suited for your application along with the proper preparation that will be needed. Once you have determined the proper paint, then your paint tint can be made. For the bold color choices, you may want to have them mix a small test batch to take home and sample before you are committed to purchasing a large quantity if you cannot return the product for a refund because of the special tinting you requested.

• Maltese: These tiny spaniels are easy to identify thanks to their long, silky coats. The Kennel Club groups 2 American them with other “Toy Dogs” like Pugs and Yorkshire Terriers. Feline aficionados also use the term Maltese to describe cats that have a similarly silky, grayblue coat. • 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! Information in the Tidbits® Paper is gathered from sources considered to be reliable, but the accuracy of all information cannot be guaranteed.

HEROES OF 9/11 • There were many heroes in the terrible aftermath of September 11, 2001. A special group of those heroes were canines. Dogs of many breeds worked at Ground Zero, helping to search for survivors and offering their magical gift of therapy. • More than 350 dog and handler teams came from all over the United States and Canada to help in search and rescue efforts at the World Trade Center and Pentagon. These teams were from disaster-management agencies, police agencies and private search-and-rescue groups. • Omar Rivera and Michael Hingson were inside the World Trade Center along with their guide dogs Salty and Roselle. Both men are blind, but when the plane hit Tower One, the guide dogs knew what to do. Through the panic and commotion of thousands of fleeing people, these two heroic yellow labradors, guided their masters down the stairwell and safely out of the building minutes before the tower collapsed. • The first dog on the scene of the disaster was a golden retriever named Bear. Twelve-yearold Bear warmed the hearts of rescue workers amid the tragedy. Bear worked exhausting 18hour days searching for survivors and victims, sometimes being hoisted into sunken pockets of rubble, glass and metal to look for bodies. Although he found no survivors, Bear located many bodies, including that of NYFD Chief Peter J. Ganci Jr. Bear died just before his 13th birthday from an illness related to the toxic environment of Ground Zero. He is hailed as a hero. • Only one working dog was killed by the attack on the World Trade Center, a yellow labrador name Sirius. Sirius was a bomb detection dog. He was trained to search incoming vehicles for explosives. When the planes hit, he was in his cage in the basement of the North Tower. His partner, Officer David Lim, was unharmed and helped in rescue efforts. Sirius was honored at a memorial service by the Port Authority. Over 300 people attended the ceremony. • The tiniest search dog at the World Trade Center was from Seattle. Weighing only 18 pounds, Ricky, a rat terrier, searched the rubble for 10 days, going where bigger dogs could not. Ricky trained with the Puget Sound Urban Search and Rescue for over two years.

• Servus, a Belgian malinois police dog, fell into an elevator shaft while searching Ground Zero and nearly died. His handler Chris Christensen pulled Servus’ limp body from the ruins. Within minutes, firemen and rescue workers were there to help. A nurse suctioned the thick ash from his lungs, gave him IV fluids, then rushed him to the canine medical facilities. After several hours of treatment, he was released. Like a trooper, he jumped into the nearest police car used to transport dogs to the site. • The dogs of 9/11 not only assisted in search and rescue but also served as therapy dogs. They were of every imaginable shape, size and breed. These dogs provided solace and comfort to the many rescue workers, grieving family members and desperate firefighters that were forever changed by that day.
