This week’s Tidbits is for all the logomaniacs out there — all those people obsessed with fancy words! • There are fancy names for things we see every day; for example, that little metal band that encircles your pencil eraser is known as a ferrule. A harp is not only a musical instrument, but also the hoop on a lamp that holds the lampshade in place. • If your boss offers encomiums about you, consider yourself honored. Expressions of high praise have been sent your way! You certainly don’t want to hear that the boss is going to obviate your position — That means it’s going to be done away with. • Do you have something interesting that you collect? Phillumenists collect matchbook covers, while labeorphilists accumulate beer bottle labels. An entredentolignumologist’s hobby is collecting unique toothpick boxes. Are you a timbromaniac? That’s just a fancy name for an enthusiastic stamp collector. • If you’re feeling stressed, lalochezia is not the answer. That’s when you use profane or abusive language to alleviate your tension.

• Those who are misocapnists should stay away from those who are nepheligenous. The former hate the smell of tobacco smoke, while the latter produce clouds of the stuff. • It’s no compliment to be called a coof, dizzard, dunderhead or gump. These are synonyms for a complete numbskull. Likewise, snarge, yazzihamper, cullion and poltroon all refer to an utter jerk. • This election year we might see a lot of girouettism from politicians. This means they may change their position on issues in order to follow popular opinion. It’s interesting to note that the French word for weather vane is girouette, a device that features a little rooster that goes back and forth, depending on the way of the winds. Some politicians are experts in lolodacity, the practice of spitefully criticizing their opponent with true or untrue words, in other words, “hitting below the belt.” There very well may be some eccedentesiasts during the campaign, that is, those who fake a smile, especially on television. • Some of our body parts have pretty unusual names. For example, the groove on your upper lip under your nose is known as a columella nasi. That bony bump on the side of your ankle is called a malleolus, while the bony tip of your elbow is your olecranon. We’ve heard of a curlicue, but what’s a purlicue? That’s the little web of skin between your thumb and forefinger. And how about your armpit? It’s officially known as an oxter. Ladies often pluck their glabella, that little flat area between the eyebrows. • What do eggs, bacon, oatmeal and toast have in common? They’re all jentacular, that is, pertaining to breakfast.

TOOLS 4 LIFE BY DR JIM COYLE An Attitude of Gratitude Attitudes are the strings attached to particular behaviors. Charles Swindoll said “The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude...I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you...we are in charge of our attitudes.” Did you know that you can choose what side of the bed you’re going to get up from? Attitudes will make us or break us. Here is some AA (attitude adjustment) fuel. • • • •

Choose Happiness: focus on happy, seek to be happy, and mentally go there Choose Optimism: everything has 2 sides Choose an Open Mind: new info is good Choose Your Own Thoughts: not someone else’s

UNUSUAL WORDS (continued):

• Do you know the difference between innocuous and noxious? An item that is innocuous is not injurious to your health, while something that is noxious will cause harm. • The loqu- root of many words comes from the Latin for “to speak.” Those on the witness stand are supposed to be veriloquent, speaking nothing but the truth. The preacher in the pulpit is sanctiloquent, speaking of sacred things. A politician is often flexiloquent — evasive and vague. Do you jabber idiotically? You’re being stultiloquent! Likewise if you’re inianloquent, you’re speaking foolishly and saying silly things. And we all know people who are longiloquent, in other words, remarkably long-winded. • Listen carefully! The “achoo!” sound of your sneeze is formally known as sternutation. That funny noise you make when you swallow is a gwick. The sound that ketchup makes while flowing from the bottle is a glink. You can also refer to that ketchup sound as a blodder. • You remember old what’s-his-name, don’t you? What is his name anyway? Sounds like you’re suffering from lethonomia, the propensity to forget names. • A marriage between a young woman and an older man is known as alphamegamia. If you and your spouse are about the same age, your union is isonogamic. • We’ve all suffered, at one time or another, from lethologica. That’s the inability to recollect the exact word for something. However, if you become obsessed with trying to remember that word, you have loganamnosis. • Being pancreatic has nothing to do with your pancreas. It means you consider yourself proficient in all types of sports. If this describes you, you’ve probably experienced nikhedonia, the delight received from envisioning your victory.

• Heliolaters often estivate in order to apricate. Translation, please! Sunworshipers frequently go away for the summer in order to do a lot of sunbathing. • Some folks are autotonsorialists, meaning they cut their own hair, while others go to the chirotonsor, another word for barber. Ever feel like just tearing your hair out? We all have on occasion, but those with a compulsion to do so suffer from trichotillomania. • Tasks that are sclerotic, recondite, scabrous, onerous, arduous or vicissitudinous are just plain difficult! • Planning an elephant ride in the future? Don’t forget your howdah, that little riding seat that fits on the back of a pachyderm. How about a ride in a montgolfier? That’s a fancy title for a hot air balloon. A balloon that uses both gas and hot air is called a rosiere. • If you’re wearing a pauldron, rondel, rerebrace, couter, tasset, vambrace, poleyn, greave, solleret, gauntlet, cuirie, mail gusset and ocularium sight, you’re outfitted in a suit of armor. Oh, and don’t forget to bring your pavise — your shield! • A vomitory sounds like a place you’d go if you were nauseated, but it’s actually a corridor in a large stadium leading to the grandstands. • A person who engages in abligurition is spending excessive amounts of money on food and drink. However, the one who skips out of the restaurant without paying his bill is swedging. • Mathematicians will know that a zenzizenzizenzic number is one that is raised to the eighth power. • $ and % and @ are grammalogues, that is, symbols that denote a word — $ for “dollars,” % for “percent” and @ for “at.”

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

STRANGE BUT TRUE by Samantha Weaver

● It was, unsurprisingly, comedian and writer W.C. Fields who said, “I am free of all prejudices. I hate everyone equally.”

Whether you prefer pool or pool

we’ve got you covered Spend some time with us. Enjoy good friends, great food, jacuzzi, swimming pool, card games, music, fun exercises and activities –

● Even if you haven’t heard the They Might Be Giants song “Istanbul (Not Constantinople)” you are probably aware that the Turkish metropolis has undergone name changes throughout its long history. It seems that when the name was Constantinople, it was common for residents of the area to refer to things “in the city,” which in the Aegean dialect of Greek is pronounced “is tan polin.” Eventually the name stuck, and in 1930 Turkish authorities formally adopted the name Istanbul. ● The giant squid has the distinction of possessing the largest eyes of any animal -- they’re as big as pie plates. ● For a queen bee, laying 3,000 eggs is all in a day’s work. ● Evidencing a drastic change in the nature of the United States since its agrarian beginnings, today only a quarter of Americans live in rural areas.

w w w. k e y s t o n e s e n i o r. c o m

● The next time you’re in the jungle observing gorillas, be sure to notice if one sticks out its tongue. That means it’s angry. ● In the filming of the original “Star Trek” television series, the ship’s transporter was used simply to cut costs. With it, characters could move from one set to another without having to shoot costly landing scenes. As a side note, the sparkling effect that could be seen when characters were transported was created by aluminum dust. ● If you’re like the average American, you’ll eat nine pounds of peanuts this year. ● Those who study such things say you’re more likely to be bitten by a mosquito if you’ve just eaten a banana.

Don’t Trash This Mail Do you read your Explanation of Benefits forms when they come in the mail? They could contain information that you need to know. The Explanation of Benefits gives the latest update on your Medicare payment status. Whenever a claim for services is filed, the information is sent to you. That’s your opportunity to verify whether the information is correct, especially the dollar amounts. Here are the things you need to note: Total Charges: These are the amounts the doctor (or hospital, if you were a patient) wants to charge. Approved Amount (which also could be called Medicare Approved or Allowed Amount): This is the dollar amount that Medicare allows your doctor to charge. Patient Responsibility: This is your portion of the bill that Medicare allows, based on your policy’s percentage. If the math is correct, so far so good, but there are other places errors could be evident. Spelling of your name and patient ID number: Someone with the same name (but a different ID number) could end up on your account. Dates of service and the name of the doctors: Did you go to that doctor on that date? Did you have the test or procedure that’s listed? Prescriptions: Did you fill a prescription on that date? Look at the cost. If someone else’s drugs are listed on your account, it might send you to the “doughnut hole” too quickly. The doughnut hole is that gap in coverage where none of your drug costs are picked up until a certain large out-of-pocket amount is paid. Keep your Explanation of Benefits to compare from one month to the next. If anything looks wrong, call Medicare at 1-800-633-4227 to report it.

● On June 8, 632, in Saudi Arabia, Muhammad, founder of Islam, dies in the arms of Aishah, his third wife. In 610, in a cave north of Mecca, Muhammad had a vision in which he heard God command him to become the Arab prophet of the “true religion.” He began having religious revelations, which he collected as the Qur’an. ● On June 5, 1933, the United States goes off the gold standard, a monetary system in which currency is backed by gold. The Great Depression of the 1930s had frightened the public into hoarding gold. Roosevelt ordered all gold coins and gold certificates in denominations of more than $100 turned in for other money. ● On June 4, 1942, the Battle of Midway -one of the most decisive U.S. victories against Japan during World War II -- begins. During the four-day sea-and-air battle, the U.S. Pacific Fleet succeeded in destroying four Japanese aircraft carriers while losing only one of its own. ● On June 9, 1956, one of the world’s top-selling crime novelists, Patricia Cornwell, best known for her forensic pathologist character Dr. Kay Scarpetta, is born in Miami. Cornwell’s first novel, “Postmortem,” was released in 1990. ● On June 7, 1962, the banking institution Credit Suisse opens the first drive-through bank in Zurich, Switzerland. The drivethrough featured eight glass pavilions and a sensor on the ground that activated a light trail that directed drivers to the next available bay. ● On June 6, 1981, more than 500 passengers are killed when their train plunges into the Baghmati River in India. The rail accident was caused by an engineer who braked too hard to keep from hitting a cow that was crossing the tracks over a bridge. Seven cars derailed into the river. ● On June 10, 1979, actor Paul Newman roars into second place in the 47th 24 Hours of Le Mans, the famous sports-car endurance race held annually in Le Mans, France. In 1969, Newman starred as a race-car driver in the movie “Winning,” performing many of the high-speed scenes himself without a stunt double. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Stretching across the Colorado River on the border between Arizona and Nevada towers the magnificent Hoover Dam, providing power to residents of Nevada, Arizona and California. Follow along and learn more about this Eighth Wonder of the Modern World. • Construction on the dam began in the midst of the Great Depression in 1931, at a site about 25 miles southeast of Las Vegas. The first step was to divert the roaring Colorado River away from the construction site. Tunnels as large as four-lane highways were blasted through the walls of Black Canyon, diverting the water and enabling workers to work in the canyon bottom. • About 3.25 million cubic yards of concrete were used in the construction, more than 5 million barrels. Between 7,500 and 10,800 barrels were required daily. The first concrete was poured in June of 1933, and every month, about 160,000 cubic yards of concrete were necessary until the cement work wrapped up in May 1935. This all contributed to the final weight of the dam — over 6.6 million tons! The amount of concrete contained in the dam and power plant would pave a 16-foot-wide highway from San Francisco to New York City or a 4-foot-wide sidewalk around the Earth at the equator. The dam is as thick at its base as two football fields laid end-to-end — 660 feet. • An average of 3,500 workers labored on the project daily, with the all-time high of 5,218 workers one day. Seven years were allotted for the construction, but the project was completed in just under five, at a cost of $165 million. • Although it was finished long before the deadline, it certainly wasn’t without its pitfalls. Over a one-month period in the exceptionally hot summer of 1931, daytime high temperatures averaged nearly 120° F, resulting in the deaths of 16 workers. The final death total for the entire project was 112. • The first person to perish on the Hoover Dam project was a surveyor named J.G. Tierney, who drowned while scoping out the ideal site, nine years before the groundbreaking. Ironically, Tierney’s son Patrick was the last to die, perishing exactly 13 years to the day later, while working on the dam’s construction. • At the time of its completion in 1936, Hoover Dam was the largest in the world. Standing 726 feet tall, it is nearly 200 feet taller than the Washington Monument. It now ranks as the second tallest dam in the nation behind California’s Orofino Dam and is the 18th highest in the world. It hosts more than a million visitors each year. • Lake Mead, America’s largest reservoir, was formed by the water accumulated by Hoover Dam. It extends 112 miles behind the dam and is a favorite recreation area for visitors interested in fishing, water skiing, boating and swimming near sandy beaches. Several communities were evacuated to create the reservoir and their remains sit at the bottom of this body of water. Also resting at the bottom of the lake is a B-29 Superfortress that crashed there in 1948. • Hoover Dam’s generators provide about four billion kilowatt hours of hydroelectric power each year for public and private utilities serving 1.3 million people. The water running through the generators is enough to fill 15 20,000-gallon swimming pools every second.

December 22– January 19

Discord turns into harmony with some sage advice from a young friend. Don’t let what could have happened give you false hope, Capricorn

January 20– February 18 Pinching pennies is what this week is all about, Aquarius. Look for ways you can cut back, and you’ll see a difference in your bottom line.

February 19– March 20 Oh dear, Pisces. An organization is in dire need. Find the time to help and get a friend in on the action. A little planning will go a long way toward making a goal a reality.

June 22– July 22 Pronto, Cancer. The decision must be made and it must be made now. Do your homework. Special treats make for a weekend of glee. Excellent!

July 23– August 22 Dream on, Leo. You have so much to do right now you can’t possibly take on something else. Learn the word “no” and mean it. A phone call clues you in.

August 23– September 22 You’ve danced around the issue long enough, Virgo. Get in there and be the mediator you were always meant to be. A deadline is extended.

March 21– April 19 Heads up, Aries. All is not as it seems, not by a long shot. You’ve been much too busy to notice but that must come to an end now.

September 23– October 22 Home improvement plans take a back seat to your love life this week, as romantic gestures get the home fires burning. Get ready for some magic, Libra.

April 20– May 20 Crazy impulses take hold, and you break out of your shell big time. No one knows what to think, but who cares, Taurus. It’s your turn to have some fun.

October 23– November 21 Want it, Scorpio? Come and get it, and it will be yours. A wellknown fact turns out to be fiction. Don’t let it put a damper on a festive occasion.

May 21– June 21 Footloose and fancy free is a good way to describe you this week, Gemini. You do what you want when you want, and all gets done as scheduled..

November 22– December 21 Charge, Sagittarius! Full speed ahead. You’ve got all of the pieces of the pie in place. Don’t let anything hold you back. A memento turns up in a peculiar place.

Hey, what’s cookin’? This week, Tidbits teaches you about a few famous chefs of our era. In the words of Julia Child, “Bon appétit!” • Julia Child didn’t have aspirations of becoming a famous chef. After graduating from Smith College, she became a copyrighter in the advertising department of a home furnishings firm, followed by several more years writing for publications and working in advertising. During World War II, the 6-foot, 2-inch Julia was classified too tall to enlist in the WACS or WAVES and went to work as a typist at the OSS, the predecessor to the CIA. Before long, she was doing top secret research in the Secret Intelligence Division. After the war, she married a fellow OSS employee Paul Child, who introduced Julia to fine cuisine. When Paul’s job took the couple to Paris, Julia and two friends began teaching cooking, ● Monday $5 burger baskets while developing a cook book.11-8 The 734● Tuesday $6.99 tacos page “Mastering the 11-8 Art of French $4.00 was well Margaritas Cooking” released 11-8 in 1961 and quickly became a best seller, still in ● Thursday, $5 Dozen Wings one 4-9 pm print●today. Twenty Sunday All Daymore Happytitles Hour! followed. She●debuted on television in 1963TVS with All Games In High Definition “The French Chef,” earning the first-ever Emmy Award for an educational program. The cover of Time magazine featured her in 1966, dubbing her “Our Lady of the Ladle.” • Scottish-born Gordon Ramsay is famous for his hot temper and coarse language on the television series “Hell’s Kitchen.” But his abilities as a chef are top-notch, with his London restaurant voted as that city’s best for eight years straight. He has also authored 21 books. • Austrian-born chef Wolfgang Puck learned to cook from his pastry chef mother. After immigrating to America at age 25, he worked as a chef for two years in Indianapolis before making the move to Los Angeles. He published his first cook book at age 33. Puck’s first Spago restaurant opened on the Sunset Strip the following year. He now has 19 restaurants. The Beverly Hills Spago has been on the list of the Top 40 restaurants in the United States since 2004. Puck cites macaroons as his absolute favorite food. Had he not chosen his current profession, he says he would have liked to have been an artist. • Rachael Ray didn’t get her cooking education at a culinary institute; in fact, she herself states, “I have no formal anything. I’m completely unqualified for any job I’ve ever had.” Perhaps it helped that her family owned four restaurants. Ray’s first job was at Macy’s candy counter, and she moved up to the fresh foods department. Her “30-Minute Meal” simple recipes appeal to busy consumers everywhere. Ray insists she is not a good baker, because it calls for measured ingredients, while she prefers approximating amounts, such as “half a palmful.” • Chef Emeril Lagasse, owner of 12 restaurants and author of 15 best-selling cook books, specializes in Cajun, Creole and Portuguese cooking. He learned bread and pastry baking as a teenager, working in a Portuguese bakery in his Massachusetts home town. Although Emeril was offered a full scholarship at a music conservatory, he chose a culinary university, traveling to Paris following graduation to practice his trade. Settling in New Orleans, he purchased the famous Delmonico Restaurant, one of America’s oldest restaurants. He has since expanded into three other cities.

Plan Now for Emergencies 750 Dee Lane, Mt Vernon

Q: I wanted to write and remind your readers to have a plan in place in case of natural disasters. I live in a hurricaneprone area, so I keep what I call a “hurricane kit” ready at all times. It’s stocked with first-aid supplies, food, water and other items that I can grab and throw into the car in case my family needs to evacuate. I also know the location of important papers so I can grab those, too. And I reserved a corner of my garage to store post-hurricane supplies like tarps, a generator and basic tools. I learned to do all this several years ago when a Category 3 hurricane passed through my town, but not until after the storm. Now I’m prepared before the storm. -Curtis F., Orlando A: Thanks for reminding us all, Curtis! Organization is key to surviving during and after a natural disaster, fire or other calamity. Here are a few tips to keep in mind: --Prepare your family for the most likely scenario depending on your geographic location: hurricane, tornado, blizzard, wildfire, flood or other event. --Learn about and prepare for household emergencies, including fire, a gas leak, carbon monoxide leak, etc. --Create an escape plan and rehearse it with your family. --Create an evacuation kit that includes important papers, food, water, first aid, blankets and other essential items. --Include pets in your plans! Add pet food and medicines to your evacuation kit, along with a copy of their vaccination record and license. And keep their carry crate accessible. --If you must shelter in place during a disaster, designate your home’s safe spot (basement, central room, closet or bathtub, for example), and make sure everyone knows to get there quickly. --Create a post-disaster supply stash that includes several tarps (to cover damaged roof areas or create temporary shelter), a generator, canned foods, water and first aid, and store in a reinforced area if possible. Store gasoline away from the house at all times. HOME TIP: The University of Missouri offers a free disaster plan template. Download it here:

• Maltese: These tiny spaniels are easy to identify thanks to their long, coats. The Deck washing and silky sealing American Kennel Club groups Wolman certified them with other “Toy contractor Dogs” like Pugs and Exterior painting & staining Yorkshire Terriers. Feline aficionados also use the term Fully Licensed Fully Insured. Maltese to describe cats that have a25si-years Experience milarly 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!

● Many people have sent in the tip to use two bowls, one larger than the other, to serve cold salads at picnics. You add a few cups of crushed ice to the larger bowl, then nestle the smaller bowl into it, making it “chilled.” In any case, remember: Don’t leave food out longer than two hours. ● If you’re planning food platters for your barbecue, consider making several smaller platters instead of one large dish. The large ones are harder to store when you prep beforehand, but a better reason is that the items will not go stale/ too warm/too cold quite as fast, and it’s easy to switch out plates throughout the party. ● “Using plastic cups for a crowd? Remember to put out a permanent marker, colorful rubber bands or some other way to mark each person’s glass. It’s sometimes hard to keep track when they all look the same.” -- C.L. in Pennsylvania ● “Purchase a small cooler to use for large quantities of side dishes. I have a cooler advertised as fitting a six-pack of drinks, but it’s perfect for holding macaroni salad at our summer beach gatherings with family. I do not use it for anything else, and it retains its cold temperature despite the heat (when everyone remembers to keep the lid closed, of course).” -- R.R. in South Carolina ● “For serving utensils used during picnic lunch, I have two large zip-top plastic bags. I label them ‘clean’ and ‘dirty.’ Anything used to touch raw meat goes in the ‘dirty.’ And serving spoons that can be used again to serve are in ‘clean.’” -- M.A. in Arizona Send your tips to Now Here’s a Tip, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Lion or Lamb? If March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb. The phrase describes the general state of March weather. The month usually starts out with rough weather and ends with milder weather as spring arrives. The saying is used a lot in classrooms to teach kids about the weather. How it came to be is not clear. Many say it has something to do with the positions of the constellations Leo the lion and Aries the ram at the beginning and the end of the month. Wherever it came from, the saying is a good reminder of how different the weather in March can be. You might need a coat, hats and gloves at the beginning of the month and a light jacket at the end.
