EAT BREAKFAST by Patricia L. Cook

This Tidbits examines breakfast around the world. Many studies say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but when it comes to what people think should be on the breakfast table, there are quite a few differences. • The word breakfast means “to break the fast,” meaning to eat again after hours of sleep and no food. Numerous nutritional studies have shown that people who skip breakfast are more likely to have problems with metabolism, weight and concentration. • The first use of the word “breakfast” was in the 15th century when it was likely that porridge or bread was eaten. The first appearance in print that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day,” was not from a medical professional or scientist; it was in the book “Metamorphosis” by German writer Franz Kafka in 1915. • The typical full breakfast in the United States and Canada is based on the “full English breakfast,” although in many households this type of breakfast is now more likely to be reserved for weekends and holidays. When more people lived on farms and got up early for manual labor, a large breakfast was common. Now, it is not unusual to start the day with simply cereal or toast along with milk, juice and/ or coffee. turn the page for more!

• So, what does a “full English breakfast” include, and when did this custom start? • In the 19th century, when men started to work regular hours in offices, twocourse breakfasts became popular. They would start with porridge and then have bacon, eggs, tea and more later. This became known as the “full English breakfast” during the time of World War I when lighter, quicker breakfasts became popular. • A customary “full English breakfast” has bacon and eggs as the star of the plate. They might be accompanied by sausage, fish, toast and marmalade, grilled tomatoes and muffins or other breads. Typically, the British would start with orange juice, cereals, stewed or fresh fruit and tea. • A full breakfast for the English may also have included oddities such as baked beans and black pudding. Black pudding is generally made by mixing pig’s blood with pork fat and oatmeal or barley. It is so popular in northern England that a festival is dedicated to it: the World Black Pudding Throwing Championships! • The Irish also love a full breakfast like the British, including black pudding. They are likely to include white pudding and soda bread on the table as well. White pudding is similar to black except it doesn’t contain blood. Both of these “puddings” are formed into sausages. “By the time they had diminished from 50 to 8, the other dwarves began to suspect “Hungry”

Here are some ways to get around the potholes of stress throughout the day. • Take a 5 minute stress-release walk out doors. Contact with a fresh environment is especially beneficial • Spend 5 minutes listening to a recording featuring your favorite comedian • Take a 5 minute nap after lunch: the alarm on your cell phone is wonderful • Take 5 minutes visualizing yourself relaxing at your favorite vacation spot • Take 5 minutes for a gentle neck roll and shoulder massage

• Large Scottish breakfasts also include dishes similar to those of the English, but they may add potato scones, haggis and oatcakes. Haggis is another odd sausage, made from chopped lamb’s heart, lungs and liver mixed with suet, oats, onions and seasonings and usually boiled. (Hungry yet?) • If you are wondering when boxed cereals became popular for breakfast, this occurred in the late 1880s and was prompted by a backlash against large breakfasts. Many thought these large morning meals were leading to health problems. Cereal pioneers like W.K. Kellogg, Henry Perky and C.W. Post developed products that became extremely popular. Cereals were very important when eggs and bacon were rationed during World War II. • There are many places in the world where the morning meal is not much different from other meals. • In Mexico, it is not unusual to have beans and cheese served with tortillas. Just as for other meals, spicy food is welcomed at breakfast. • In Thailand, you’ll find a spicy fish dish with mint and pork and served with rice offered by street vendors in the morning. Other dishes are available as well, dishes very similar to those served at mid-day and evening meals. • China is a very large country with a diverse population representing many cultures, so there are multiple variations in breakfast foods. Probably the most common breakfast dish nationwide is rice porridge with pickled vegetables. Some people include hard-boiled eggs and steamed bread as well. In the north, many enjoy hot soy milk and fried dough sticks that are like unsweetened doughnuts.

BREAKFAST (continued):

• On the streets in China you can find a wide variety of steamed breads, noodles and dumplings, some with meat or veggie fillings. Until recently, cow’s milk was not a part of Chinese diets. Now consumption of cow’s mike is encouraged, as is eating Western-style bread, as the Chinese have begun to follow the Western way of making children big and strong. • In Russia, oladi are a popular breakfast food. Similar to pancakes, oladi are fried, soft inside and have a crispy edge. They’re usually eaten with sour cream, jam, honey or fresh berries.

• Another country with a popular pancake offering is Sweden. Pannkakor is a thin, What noise does a witch's breakfast cereal make? flat cake, fried on both sides, similar to a Snap, cackle, pop! crepe. It is usually served with a fruity filling.

After much convincing from my husband, I finally agreed to call an old family friend to sing her happy birthday. It was only after I finished singing, that the voice at the other end of the line informed me, that it was the wrong number. “Oh I’m sorry” I said, embarrassed. “It’s ok”, the voice said “you can use all of the practice you can get!”

• The French are known for the pastries they enjoy for breakfast — or anytime with a cup of strong coffee. The croissant is one of the famous pastries for which the French have been given credit, and they do serve them beautifully, but it was actually adapted from an Austrian pastry in that originated in the mid-1800s. • The Austrian “kipferl” or “kipfel” was brought to Paris by Austrian August Zang when he opened a Viennese bakery in 1838 or 1839. French bakers loved the pastry and started imitating Zang’s “kipferl.” Their pastries became the “croissant,” which is French for crescent. • Many places like the croissant now, including Portugal and Spain. Stuffed croissants and plenty of coffee are very popular at breakfast time. Another quick Spanish specialty is Pan a la Tomate, which is simple but delicious. It consists of bread rubbed with garlic and tomato and then topped with olive oil and salt.

Why sit home alone when there is so much at Keystone Place waiting for you.

STRANGE BUT TRUE by Samantha Weaver

• It was 17th-century French author Francois de la Rochefoucauld who made the following sage observation: “It is more often from pride than from ignorance that we are so obstinately opposed to current opinions; we find the first places taken, and we do not want to be the last.”

● You probably know that Robert E. Lee was a general in the Confederate Army during the Civil War, and that he ultimately surrendered the war to Union General Ulysses S. Grant at the courthouse at Appomattox, Va. You might not know, though, that Lee had a pet hen that traveled with him everywhere. It’s said that the chicken laid an egg under Lee’s cot every morning. ● The National Restaurant Association, which tracks dining statistics, says that the most popular day for eating out is Mother’s Day. ● In 1954, Swanson pioneered the frozen dinner when, after Thanksgiving sales had been lower than expected, the company found itself stuck with 10 railroad cars of unsold turkey.

Moms were taken out to their favorite restaurant by a son or daughter who paid for everything. Dads will be getting a collect call soon to be told they are the greatesst.

Senior News Line by Matilda Charles

Don’t Just Sit There Numerous studies have shown us two things: ItÕs never too late to start being active, and a small amount of activity is better than none when it comes to better health. Now thereÕs an additional benefit: Being active helps keep depression and other psychological issues at bay. Not only that, but a recent study shows that those with “psychological distress are four times more likely to be functionally limited.” The study, done on 91,000 adults age 65 and older, indicates that one-third of us don’t get regular exercise, and the number goes up even more for those 75 and older. Another study on the same topic came to a serious conclusion: Those who have depression had better results from exercising three times a week than those who took drugs for their symptoms. All it took was getting 20 minutes of moderateintensity exercise. Other researchers have approached senior health from a different angle: A Psychological Bulletin news release from the Harvard School of Public Health reported on a study that compared psychological well-being to heart health. It found that psychological well-being reduces the chance of heart attack and stroke. Specifically, being optimistic, happy and satisfied with life can reduce the risk of a cardiovascular event. Somehow those emotions not only protect us, but can slow down existing disease. How then do we use this information? A simplistic look might be this: If we elevate our mood with exercise and gain a sense of emotional well-being, we’re also helping our heart. And looking on the bright side of life gives an additional benefit: Those of us who are optimistic cut our risk of heart attack in half.

MOMENTS IN TIME The History Channel ● On May 19, 1715, the colony of New York passes a law making it illegal to “gather, rake, take up, or bring to the market, any oysters whatsoever” during May, June, July and August. This regulation was only one of many that were passed in the early days of America to help preserve certain species. ● On May 17, 1792, a group of 24 traders gather under a buttonwood tree at 68 Wall Street in lower Manhattan to work out the regulations of the speculative market. The result was the Buttonwood Agreement, a two-sentence contract that gave birth to the New York Stock Exchange. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

FAMOUS LANDMARKS OF THE WORLD:

MOUNT ST. HELENS

Mount St. Helens is a volcanic mountain found in the Cascade Range of western Washington. Mount St. Helens and the Cascade Range are a part of the ring of fire that encircles the Pacific Ocean. • The ring of fire was created and is continually changed by the collision of the North American and the Juan de Fuca tectonic plates. Mount St. Helens is the most active volcano in the Cascade Mountains. It erupts about once each century. • The primary, newsworthy eruptions of Mt. St. Helens in recent times occurred on March 27 and May 18 in 1980. Smaller eruptions and earthquakes occurred prior to and between these dates but were insignificant compared to the two primary eruptions. The first eruption on March 27 was initiated with either one large or two closely timed explosions and lasted for nine hours. • Periodic eruptions continued at Mt. St. Helens until 1986. Early eruptions were the strongest and latter eruptions consisted primarily of lava flows that served to build a lava dome now measured at 920 feet in height. However, even with construction of this lava dome, the mountain’s total height was reduced from 9,677 feet to 8,357 feet due to rock and soil being blown away during the volcano’s initial eruptive blast. • The magnitude of the May 18 eruption was such that plants and animals to the north of the mountain within five miles were destroyed. Replacing the forested landscape teeming with wildlife was a lifeless, rocky stretch of land. • This scene coupled with the impact the volcano made in the minds of people living nearby and on those interested in and studying its aftermath prompted the area to be declared a national monument. • In 1982, following the first eruptions, the 110,000-acre National Volcanic Monument (NVM) was created by Congress and promoted by President Reagan. The NVM offers a place for research, recreation and education. The grounds on the NVM were left as they were after the eruption and allowed to respond naturally concerning topography, revegetation and repopulation by wildlife. • Today, 32 years after the eruptions of 1980, the once-barren ground has been transformed into a mosaic of plant communities including fireweed, pearly everlasting, penstemon and lupine. Animals are returning too, including birds (killdeer, red-winged blackbirds, red-tailed hawks and osprey) and mammals (elk and coyote). • Prior to the 1980 eruption, Mt. St. Helens was essentially dormant, dating back to its last volcanic activity in 1857. The eruptions in 1980 reminded Americans that volcanoes are not restricted to Alaska and Hawaii. • Mt. St. Helens was named in 1792 by Captain George Vancouver of the British Royal Navy. He named the mountain in honor of his fellow countryman Alleyne Fitzherbert who held the title of Baron St. Helens. Fitzherbert was the British Ambassador to Spain at the time. In addition to Mt. St. Helens, Captain Vancouver also named three other area volcanoes in honor of British naval officers — Mounts Baker, Hood and Rainer. • Mt. St. Helens reminds us of the power in nature and of its cycle of destruction and rebirth.

December 22– January 19

You don’t like to pitch a fit, but if you want to be heard, that’s what you’re going to have to do. Make your stance known, Capricorn. Only then will you get the action you seek.

January 20– February 18 Attention, Aquarius. Someone close to you has something to say, and they need you to listen. A home improvement project turns out better than expected.

June 22– July 22 Clarify, Cancer. Make certain you are understood on all accounts this week. Leave nothing to chance. A friend drops by with an unusual request.

July 23– August 22 Bickering rarely solves anything, so put a stop to the madness the first chance you get, Leo. You will get nothing done if you don’t.

August 23– September 22

February 19– March 20 It’s a tall order, Pisces, but it’s not impossible. Gather your supplies and the troops and get crackin’. A report receives glowing reviews just in time.

A loved one has a meltdown, and you’re left to pick up the pieces. You can do it, Virgo, and you will do it well. A new do lifts spirits in more ways than one.

March 21– April 19 Please, Aries. You are a go-getter, but sometimes you go too far. Keep that in mind this week as you work with others to get a project off the ground.

September 23– October 22 Clam up, Libra, and you will regret it. Prepare to present your idea and watch the sparks fly. The to-do list nears completion with an addition..

April 20– May 20 Stop dragging your feet, Taurus. You know what needs to be done, so do it. The sooner you finish, the sooner you can move on to something you really want to do.

October 23– November 21 A change in attitude picks up the pace, and the team finishes well ahead of schedule. Bravo, Scorpio. Your efforts won’t go unnoticed.

May 21– June 21 Pragmatic Gemini. You’re always looking to get things done well in the shortest time possible, but sometimes just won’t work. Patience is key.

November 22– December 21 What’s that, Sagittarius? Your pleas are falling on deaf ears? Perhaps it’s your method of presentation. Be bold, and you’ll get what you seek.

LAVA ROCK

Lava rock is rock formed from the cooling and solidification of lava issued from volcanoes. In North America, most lava rock is located in the continent’s western half. • Molten rock beneath the earth’s surface is referred to by geologists as magma. Once this molten material is expelled through a volcano onto the earth’s surface, geologists then refer to it as lava. • Lava cools rapidly in air or water, sometimes in a matter of minutes or hours. Because cooling is rapid, lava rock appears very uniform and (as geologists describe) fine-grained. By contrast, granite is a coarse-grain rock, and when examined closely, it has a spotted appearance due to the many minerals in the rock. Lava rock generally is uniform in color with no spotty appearance. • Lava rock that cools very rapidly looks like dark glass; rocks of this type are ● Monday $5 burger 11-8 called obsidian.

An interesting place to see an array of lava rocks is Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve near Arco, Idaho. There you will see and can explore former lava tubes, volcanic cinder cones and rocks of varied, interesting shapes. In fact, this area was visited by NASA astronauts in 1969 while training for their visit to the moon. • Craters of the Moon has within its boundaries another geological feature associated closely with volcanoes called the Great Rift. The Great Rift is the earth’s conduit through which lava moved to form the rock formations at Craters of the Moon. Lava coming through the Great Rift is also responsible for the Wapi Lava Field in southern Idaho. • Lava rock is a material with multiple practical uses. Landscapers use it extensively for mulch in flower beds and gardens because of its attractive red or black color, its fire resistance and its ability to hold heat and moisture. Lava rock is also used in grills and fireplaces to distribute heat more evenly across and between multiple heat sources (for example, multiple burners in a grill). • Lava fields are expanses of lava rock resulting from solidification of lava from one or more volcanic eruptions. Lava fields show up on aerial photographs as black splotches against typical earth hues of brown, grey and green. In the United States, lava fields are prevalent in the Pacific Northwest. • If you are interested in seeing lava before it cools to lava rock, two places to visit are Stromboli volcano in Stromboli, Italy, and Kilauea volcano in Hawaii. Stromboli is one of the Aeolian Islands located in the Tyrrhenian Sea, west of the Italian peninsula. Because the volcano has been active for much of the last 2,000 years and its eruptions are visible from long distances at night, it is known as the “Lighthouse of the Mediterranean.” • The Kilauea volcano is located on the island of Hawaii, the largest of all the Hawaii islands. Eruptions have been nearly continuous since 1983. Lava erupting from the cinder-and-spatter cone, named Pu`u `O `o_, flows through a tube system about 6.8 miles to the sea.

“french” a food item. It’s a verb that means www.a1rentalwest.com 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.

• Maltese: These tiny spaniels are easy to www.IowaSheds.com identify thanks to their long, silky coats. The American Kennel Club groups 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 Deck washing and sealing morning without a hot cup of Colombian.

THIS IS A HAMMER By Samantha Mazzotta

Pruning Tips Q: I haven’t pruned many of my hedges and trees in several years, and some of them have grown wild and ragged-looking. If they’re past the blooming stage, is it safe to trim them? Also, any tips to make this task easier? -- Carol in Oklahoma A: Trying to tackle all of the shrubbery and trees in your yard can be daunting, even when it hasn’t been several years since their last pruning. The best thing to do is take an initial tour of your yard with notebook in hand. Mentally split the yard into several sections, and then note what needs to be done in each: trimming, pruning or even removal of foliage. Next, tackle each section one at a time. Depending on your schedule, you may need to do one section each day. A particularly foliage-heavy section may take an entire weekend. You might need help from friends or relatives to take care of large or excessively high hedges, meaning you’ll need to plan a time for them to come over. And if a tree needs complex trimming -- for example, its branches are encroaching on the roof or on power lines -- you’ll need to arrange for a professional tree trimmer to inspect it, provide an estimate and do the work. Pruning on your own takes a little practice, but don’t worry too much about mistakes, as they will eventually grow out. Plants that have already bloomed can be pruned without a problem, and plants or trees that are still blooming are, by this time of year, safe to trim. As you’ll likely be piling up a lot of branches and limbs, check with your local government about proper disposal of yard waste. Most have programs in place, such as scheduled pickup dates during the growing season, and guidelines for containers or bags that the trimmed branches should be placed in. If you hire a tree trimmer, be sure to ask how branches will be disposed of, and if that cost is included in the estimate. HOME TIP: Keep hedge and treetrimming equipment sharp, clean and lightly oiled so that they cut branches cleanly and efficiently. Send your questions or tips to ask@thisisahammer. com, or write This Is a Hammer, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

● Buff spots off of silver with toothpaste.

Rub gently with a soft cloth, rinse, and dry.

●Keep your dishcloths and sponges germfree and smelling sweet. Once weekly, soak them overnight in a few cups of water to which you’ve added a tablespoon or so of bleach. It will keep them from developing a mildew smell.

●“To keep mixes from bunching up on the beaters of my mixer, I spray them with a little canola oil right before mixing. It isn’t enough to affect the recipe, but I think it helps them do a better job. And I don’t have to stop the mixer so often to scrape the dough from the beaters.” -R.V. in Oklahoma ●To clean tea-stained cups, use a couple of drops of dishwasher detergent. Stir and let set, then scrub out. It should wipe right out. ●“If there’s a lot of burned-on food stuck to your pan, just add water immediately after cooking, then stick it in the oven (if oven-safe) at a low temperature for a little bit. It will soften the food and you can clean it much easier.” -- U.A. in Montana ● “Save larger envelopes in which you receive mail. You can reuse them by gluing or taping a new label on the front. You can close them with packing tape. Some of these envelopes are expensive.” -- T.G. in South Carolina Send your tips to Now Here’s a Tip, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

The funniest thing about comedy is that you never know why people laugh. I know what makes them laugh but trying to get your hands on the why of it is like trying to pick an eel out of a tub of water.” - W. C. Fields

Lindale Mall Food Court

Enter for a chance to WIN A $10.00 GIFT CERTIFICATE

Lindale Mall lower level 365-4265 Not valid with any other offer or specials • No Purchase necessary • No cash value Cranky Hank’s owner, Keith Hazen, isn’t really cranky at all. In fact, he’s a jovial guy who prides himself on running a family-friendly restaurant. Cranky Hank’s is actually named for Hazen’s dad, a former Marine who liked yelling — and pizza. The restaurant’s slogan, “Stop your Belly Achin’,” is exactly the sort of thing the elder Hazen would say, he says, and the grumpylooking man on Cranky Hank’s signs is a caricature of the real-life Hank, who died in 1993. The restaurant, in the lower level of the Lindale Mall, is clean and bright, with an open kitchen so customers can watch pizza makers — including Hazen — toss dough and pull pies out of a large, vintage pizza oven. He even had the ceiling raised so he could do toss the dough. “You will not find a scale in my kitchen,” explains Hazen. “Each pizza is an individual craft.” On Friday and Saturday evenings, pizza-makers offer dough-throwing lessons to their younger patrons. There is also kids-only karaoke on Tuesdays from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. The pizza is “Quad Cities style,” meaning it’s the style of pizza you’ll find at Harris Pizza, Frank’s Pizzeria, Sluggers Pizza and other local spots in the Quad Cities area, says Hazen, who grew up in East Moline. It’s a little sweeter crust, a little spicier sauce and it’s also cut in strips, not wedges. The dough and sauce are both made in-house. Staff members also shred their own cheese and make their own sausage.
