• In 1977 in Austin, Texas, Vincent Johnson and Frazier Black broke into the home of Mr. & Mrs. David Conner. They stole two TVs and a checkbook. A few hours later, the two men showed up at a local bank with a check made out to themselves for $200. They asked the teller to cash it for them. She asked them to wait a minute, and called security. The check they had tried to cash was her own.

• Ricky Shipman went swimming off a beach in North Carolina in 1972, and lost the wallet out of the pocket of his swimming suit. Eleven years later a man named Gause gutted a mackerel which had been caught by a friend of his off the coast of North Carolina. Inside the fish was Shipman’s drivers license, still intact. Gause returned Shipman’s license.

• In 1914, just before the start of WWI, a German mother took a photo of her baby son. Film plates at that time were sold individually. She dropped the plate off in Strasbourg to be developed, but because the war started, she was never able to retrieve it. Two years later in Frankfurt, she bought another film plate to photograph her new baby daughter. When it was developed, she found it was a double exposure. The picture underneath was that of her small son. Somehow the plate had become mixed in with a pile of undeveloped film.

(continued): • In 1971, Mrs. Willard Lovell of Berkeley, California, accidentally locked herself out of the house. She spent 10 minutes trying to find a way in, when the postman arrived with a letter from her brother. He had been staying with her a few weeks earlier, and the letter contained a spare key to the house, which he had borrowed and forgotten to return. • It was a hot evening in June in El Paso, Texas when patrolman Allen Falby accidentally crashed his motorcycle into a speeding truck. Businessman Alfred Smith witnessed the accident and was the first person on the scene. Falby lay bleeding to death from a severed artery in his leg. Quickly, Smith removed his tie and fashioned an effective tourniquet from it. When the ambulance crew arrived, they credited Smith with saving Falby’s life. Falby eventually recovered, and returned to police work. Five years later, he reported to an accident scene along Highway 80. A car had smashed into a tree, and the driver was bleeding to death from a severed artery in his leg. Falby pulled the man from the car and applied a tourniquet. While trying to make the man more comfortable, he suddenly recognized the victim. It was Alfred Smith, the same man who had saved his own life five years earlier. “One good tourniquet deserves another,” quipped Falby. • Brenda Rawson became engaged to Christopher Firth in 1961, and he gave her a nice diamond ring. She was heartbroken when she lost the ring while on vacation in Lancashire, England. In 1979 she was talking with her husbands’ cousin, John. They were discussing metal detectors when John mentioned that 18 years earlier, one of his kids had discovered a diamond ring near Lancashire. It was her ring.

(continued): • A farmer’s wife in West Germany lost her wedding ring in a potato field. Forty years later, she found it again- inside a potato grown in that field. • Actor Anthony Hopkins was looking for a book called The Girl from Petrovka by George Feifer because he was playing a part in a movie being made from the book. He looked all over London for a copy but couldn’t find one. Later he was waiting in a subway station when he noticed someone had left a book behind on a bench. Picking it up, Hopkins found it was The Girl from Petrovka. Two years later Hopkins was filming another movie when he was visited on the set by author George Feifer. Feifer complained that he no longer had even a single copy of his own book because he loaned his final copy to a friend who lost it in London, adding it was particularly annoying because he had written notes in the margins. Hopkins, incredulous, handed Feifer the copy he had found. It was the self same book. • Christina Cort lived in Salvador, Brazil in 1966 when an out-of-control truck crashed into her house. In 1989, she was still living in the same house when once again, an out-of-control truck crashed into it. It was the same truck driver who had barreled into her home 23 years earlier. • Gosselin Delius of Brussels, Belgium was caught in a storm while sailing a yacht off the coast of England in 1988. His glasses fell overboard. Several weeks later he was reading a newspaper when he saw an article stating that Yan Gazelle of Belgium had caught a 13-pound monkfish, and found a pair of glasses inside it when he gutted it. The glasses, identified by their serial number, belonged to Delius. They were bent but usable.

Tools 4 life By DR. Jim coyle The Best Thing for You Pt 2 Forgiveness Shakes off the Dirt A farmer’s mule fell into a well. He had no way to get him out so he decided to bury him there. He dumped a truckload of dirt on top of the mule. The mule started snorting and kicking until he worked his way to the top of the pile. Truckload after truckload of dirt, the mule kept shaking it off until the dirt reached the top and he walked away from it. What was intended to bury him ended up helping him to come out on top. No matter how bad it looks or feels God will always provide a way out and He will use the piles of dirt to mature and complete you. The key to coming out on top is to forgive the dirt and shake it off or you will get buried. Forgiveness can’t change the past but it can change the future. Shake it off and walk away.

• Otto Lewis, a lobsterman in Maine, lost his glasses when they fell overboard in the Atlantic. A few days later, a friend who was also a lobsterman returned them to him. He had found them in a lobster trap. • Beatrice Lillie, famed British actress, was appearing in a stage play called “This Year of Grace” in Ontario. During a matinee, the entire cast was on stage for the finale, in which Lillie sang, “Britannia Rules the Waves.” The cast lined up behind her, waiting for her to sing the final verse so they could move into their positions across the stage for the final curtain. However, they were shocked to hear Lillie repeating the second verse over again instead of going into the final moves. There was nothing to do but go along with her, and they marked time in the line across the back of the stage as she sang. Suddenly, a huge arc light fell from the ceiling, landing in the middle of the stage with a huge crash. Glass splattered across the stage where the cast would have been standing had Lillie not decided for an unknown reason to repeat the second verse. • E.G. Steele of Weybridge, England, served in WWI. He was tried and punished for striking an officer. His punishment was to be tied to a gunwheel for one hour at sundown. Next to his camp was an Australian brigade who passed through their camp each evening to get to a nearby town. Several Australian men discovered Steele tied up, and decided it was ridiculous to tie a man up. One of them stepped forward to cut Steele loose. Steele noticed the man had two missing fingers on his left hand. A decade later, Steele was riding the New York subway when a man sat down next to him and they began to chat. Hearing his Australian accent, Steele began to tell him of his rescue in the war. The Australian interrupted, finished the story for him, and held up his left hand- which was missing two fingers. It was the same man.

Coming to a Walmart or Sam’s Club near you: a self-service health booth. SoloHealth Stations are interactive kiosks that could keep you from going to your doctor for proper medical care. There, I’ve said it. I’m against them. Here’s how they work: You sit at a machine and answer questions about your lifestyle, what you eat and the health of family members. You get cuffed and have your blood pressure chec ked. Weigh in and get your eyes checked. Learn your BMI -- body mass index. Get advice on vitamins and pain management and heartburn. (How convenient that the machine will even tell you what aisle the vitamins are on.) One-stop health monitoring, say those who are responsible for putting these machines in Walmarts. But is a machine going to notice if you’re looking a bit pale? While it’s taking your blood pressure, will it also listen to your heart and notice just the faintest little blip that shouldn’t be there? How do you ask it questions? And what of privacy? You’ll enter a lot of personal information into the machine when you sit down for your do-it-yourself health exam. Where does that information go? Down the road, those same machines will be able to assess your diabetes risk, enroll you in a medical-care policy and who knows what else. There is a proposal to let these machines help you diagnose whether you have high cholesterol -- and even pick up an overthe-counter drug for it. Make yourself a promise: If you’re tempted to use one of these health kiosks, go ahead, but send the results to your doctor. It’s one thing to play with high-tech toys. It’s quite another to turn your health over to an electronic gadget without any human medical intervention.

February 19– March 20

Moderation is key. Overindulge in any one thing, and you will pay for it, Pisces. Long-term goals become clear as short-term goals are reached.

March 21– April 19

Small misunderstandings at home lead to big chaos at an event. Make amends and learn from your mistakes, Aries, else a repeat performance will be in store.

April 20– May 20

Loose tongues get some coworkers into trouble. Take note, Taurus, and watch what you say. A trip turned disaster ends with a flourish!

May 21– June 21 A health concern rears its ugly head again. No more holding back, Gemini. Look for a permanent fix and resolve the issue once and for all.

June 22– July 22

You can’t take on the world’s problems, Cancer. You can take on your own, however. A shopping spree uncovers a rare find. Take pleasure in it.

Snap out of it, Leo. What’s done is done. Time to move on and focus on matters at home. A financial review uncovers a surplus of sorts..

• When she arrived at the army stockade, she was shocked at the conditions. The make-shift hospital grounds were filthy and crowded. Instead of simply delivering her gifts and returning home, Mary Ann Bickerdyke commenced cleaning up the camp. She provided hot meals, hot baths, clean clothing, new sheets, and fresh mattresses. The men began calling her Mother, and Mother Bickerdyke she remained for the rest of her days.

August 23– September 22

• Writing home, she asked her friends to send supplies. She was most concerned about feeding sick soldiers. The Army allotted the sick identical rations as the healthy. This did not seem fair to her. So when packages of goodies arrived for individual men, she confiscated them and passed out the goodies to the people who needed them most.

July 23– August 22

Easy, Virgo. Just because you move fast doesn’t mean others do. Keep your promise to help, but act on your friend’s terms, not yours.

September 23– October 22

Charitable organizations come calling. Choose the best and leave the rest, Libra. This is not the time to stretch yourself thin. A home improvement project looms.

October 23– November 21

Attitude is everything in an upcoming project, Scorpio. Approach it in a positive frame of mind, no matter how big, and success will be yours.

November 22– December 21

Get ready to party, Sagittarius. The chase for a dream ends, and you have much to celebrate. Reach out and share your joy with others.

• She toured other camps in the area and found them just as bad. It did not take her long to figure out that the best stuff was being confiscated by the doctors, officers, and cooks. When she discovered a healthy lieutenant wearing clothing intended for the sick, she threw him to the floor and ripped the shirt off him, snatching his stolen socks and slippers as well. The patients cheered. The following day the lieutenant applied for a transfer. She was sure the kitchen help was eating food intended for patients, so one day she carefully cooked up a batch of peaches, saying they were strictly for the sick boys. When she returned a few hours later, the peaches were gone and the kitchen workers were sprawled on the floor, writhing in agony. She had mixed tartar emetic in with the peaches as a little extra surprise. • Mother Bickerdyke took to the road, following General Grant and his troops around. General Grant told her that he had plenty of supplies and that she need not worry about bringing anything with her. Still, she loaded wagons full of supplies just in case. After the battle of Shiloh, Grant’s supplies ran out. She delivered to amazed surgeons chloroform, surgical instruments, bandages, and food. One surgeon, seeing her at work in a field of wounded men, asked her by whose authority she was there. “I have received my authority from the Lord God Almighty,” she bellowed. “Have you anything that ranks higher than that?” He decided to leave her alone. • When the war ended, Mother Bickerdyke continued her campaign of humanity. She opened boarding houses, cleaned up slums, aided destitute farmers, fought for vet’s rights, organized a home for neglected youth, rescued fallen women, and taught Sunday school. She died in 1901. Mother Bickerdyke was truly a heroic nurse.

March 19th 2013

Born in Ohio in 1817 and widowed at 42, Mary Ann Bickerdyke had to earn her own way in life. Because she had studied some medicine, she hung out a shingle advertising herself as a Botanic Physician. Her neighbors found that she was handy with the sick and they gladly paid her for caring for their ills, which led to a lifetime of helping others. • After the start of the Civil War, Mary heard a sermon preached by the brother of Harriet Beecher Stowe, who wrote Uncle Tom’s Cabin. She was horrified, not by the facts of slavery, but by the preacher’s description of the Union troops. They had not even seen battle yet, but they were dying of dysentery, pneumonia, and typhoid. The congregation raised $500 for the support of the soldiers, and they elected Mary Bickerdyke to deliver the money to troops in Cairo, Illinois.

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 1992. 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 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.

When European explorers informed the native Dene Indians of the Northwest Territories that explorer Alexander Mackenzie had “found” the river that now bears his name, the Indians replied that they didn’t know the river had ever been lost. SHIP OF FOOLS • Martin Frobisher sailed from England past Greenland in the year 1576 in search of the Northwest Passage. He ran into trouble with the native Eskimo and turned for home, taking samples of ore-bearing rocks he found on the shore. In England, a chemist announced it was gold ore. Frobisher mounted a second expedition, feeling that gold was more important than the Northwest Passage. He spent the summer of 1577 on Baffin Island, loading three ships with 200 tons of rock. Back in England, scientists exclaimed over how much gold the rocks bore— so Frobisher headed back again, this time with 15 ships. He brought home 1,350 tons of ore this time, and smelters in England spent five years trying without success trying to extract gold from it. Only then did they discover the “gold” was actually iron pyrite— fool’s gold. It was worthless. GHOST SHIP • On August 11, 1775, a Greenland whaling ship called the Herald found itself in a sea full of icebergs in gale force winds. By morning, the weather cleared. Suddenly another ship came into view. As they neared it, the whalers saw that the unknown ship was covered with ice and no humans were on deck. They received no answers to their hails. The captain lowered a longboat and went to investigate, accompanied by eight men. As they approached the derelict ship, they saw that her name was the Octavius. Boarding, they found no sign of life. • Kicking open the ice-coated door to go below, they were greeted by a musty odor. The men found a corpse in every bunk. Each was bundled in blankets and perfectly preserved by the cold. In the captain’s cabin, they found the captain’s body slumped forward on a desk, pen in hand. The body of a woman lay in the bunk. In the corner of the cabin was the corpse of a sailor, with a flint in one hand and a piece of steel in the other. A mound of wood shavings was in front of him. Nearby, under a heavy coat, was the body of a small boy. They found no provisions on board. Taking the log book, they returned to their own ship. Unfortunately, the log book was dropped and many pages lost into the ocean. The Octavious drifted off, never to be seen again. The logbook revealed that the doomed ship left England bound for China on September 10, 1761. Good winds and fair weather prevailed, and nothing was amiss. The final page said, “We have now been enclosed in the ice 17 days, and our approximate position is Longitude 160 W, Latitude 75 N. The fire went out yesterday, and our master has been trying to rekindle it again but without success. He has handed the steel and flint to the mate. The master’s son died this morning and his wife says she no longer feels the terrible cold. The rest of us seem to have no relief from the agony.” The location given in the logbook in the final entry was north of Point Barrow, Alaska. The captain of the Octavius had decided to look for the yet undiscovered Northwest Passage through the Arctic instead of sailing home all the way around South America. The ship, locked in the ice, sailed on even after the demise of the crew— and became the first ship ever to negotiate the elusive Northwest Passage. Her crew for the journey was a captain and crew who had been dead for 13 years. Today the logbook of the Octavius is in the archives of the Registrar of Shipping in London.
