• It was while working as a waitress at a resort that Wilma Slaghoople and her best friend Betty first met their future husbands Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble, who were employed there as bellhops. The Flintstones was broadcast on ABC television from 1960 to 1966, with cartoon characters based on the 1950s TV series The Honeymooners. Fred worked as a crane operator at Slate Rock & Gravel Company, while Wilma stayed home to raise daughter Pebbles and keep house, using the modern conveniences of a wooly Mammoth vacuum cleaner, pelican washing machine, and a pig garbage disposal.

• A romance between Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy seemed doomed from the start. Jane Austen’s 1813 novel Pride and Prejudice narrated the story of the very wealthy but snobbish and rude proprietor of Pemberley Estate, and the witty and intelligent Miss Bennet. Good marriages to wealthy men were vital to the five Bennet sisters, as their property and home was destined to be inherited by a male cousin upon the death of their father. Sparks flew from the beginning, when Mr. Darcy insulted Elizabeth’s

(continued): appearance. When he finally realized his attraction and proposed to her, he did so while still reminding her of the large difference in their social statuses. Lizzie’s negative response reminded him of his arrogance and conceit, assuring him he was “the last man in the world I could ever be prevailed upon to marry.” However, as with all good romances, love triumphed as Mr. Darcy realized his pride, she recognized her prejudice, and Miss Bennet accepted the second marriage proposal. • Barbara Millicent Roberts met Ken Sean Carson in 1961. Barbara, aka “Barbie”, had been on store shelves since 1959, but her hunky boyfriend wasn’t introduced until two years later, when the two “met” on the imaginary set of a TV commercial. Each of them has had a wide variety of occupations over the years, Barbie having been a teacher, dentist, veterinarian, Air Force jet pilot, firefighter, astronaut, and ballerina, among many others. Ken has worked as a pizza delivery boy, rock star, pro tennis player, and doctor, just a few of his 40+ careers. After 43 years as a couple, Mattel announced they had split in 2004, but in 2006, after Ken received an extensive makeover, they were reunited. • The 1961 musical film West Side Story chronicled the story of Tony and Maria, a tale loosely based on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, New York City style. The story revolved around the rivalry between two street gangs, the Sharks and the Jets. Tony, co-founder of the Jets, fell in love with Maria, the sister of the Sharks founder, a combination that could only result in disaster. Richard Beymer took the role of Tony after it was declined by Elvis Presley, and Natalie Wood was chosen over the likes of Audrey Hepburn and Jill St. John. The film, which ended with the deaths of both Maria’s brother and Tony, took home 10 Oscars, including Best Picture and was the second highest-grossing film of the year. It ranks #51 on the American Film Institute’s list of 100 best movies.

(continued): • Although the love story about Lois Lane and Clark Kent, aka Superman, has been told in many different ways in various forms of media, they were first introduced in June of 1938 in the DC Comics publication Action Comics #1. Their romance started out as a rivalry, after Clark scooped Lois on a story at the Daily Planet, an exclusive on Superman. Clark was enamored with Lois, but ironically, her affections were fixed on his alter-ego Superman. The couple didn’t tie the knot until 1996 when the event was published in the comic book to coincide with the nuptials on the TV series Lois and Clark. In 2007, they welcomed the addition of an adopted Kryptonian boy then named Chris Kent. • Peter Parker made his first appearance in August of 1962 in the Marvel Comics’ publication Amazing Fantasy. He was an orphaned high school student in Queens, New York, living with his Uncle Ben and Aunt May. When he was bitten by a radioactive spider, he attained the “agility and proportionate strength of an arachnid,” and acquired the ability to cling to walls and ceilings. In other words, he became Spiderman! Aunt May continually tried to fix him up with “that nice Watson girl next door,” a beautiful green-eyed redhead whose face was first seen in 1966. Mary Jane, or MJ for short, first met Peter when she was 13 years old, and staying with her elderly Aunt Anna. Peter was 14. They married in a Spiderman comics issue in 1987. On the big screen, the pair was popularly portrayed by Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst for three films. The fourth film, released in 2012, didn’t include MJ, but rather Peter’s first girlfriend, Gwen Stacy.

I must remain passionate & willing to become the end result. Too many of us spend the majority of our time on our weaknesses verses our strengths.

• Author Edgar Rice Burroughs conceived the idea of the British Lord and Lady Greystoke being marooned on the coast of Africa in 1912. Lady Greystoke gave birth there, but died on her son’s first birthday, while the Lord was killed by the leader of the Mangani ape tribe. Their son, John, Clayton, Earl of Greystoke, was adopted by the ape tribe, and grew up to be their leader. Thus went the story of Tarzan over the course of 24 novels. Tarzan met Jane Porter when she and her expedition were marooned in a similar manner. The pair married in Burroughs’ second book, published in 1913. The immensely popular series led to radio programs, comic books, and 89 movies, beginning with silent films in 1918. The most popular actor to play the ape-man was an Olympic hero, Johnny Weissmuller, winner of five gold medals in swimming, who starred in 12 Tarzan films from 1932 to 1948. • Homer and Marge Simpson were first introduced to TV viewers in December, 1989, along with their three children, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie. The blue-haired Marge Bouvier met Homer Simpson during her final year at Springfield High School. Although the couple might be a little rough around the edges, they seem to have a way of working through their marital difficulties with unending dedication to each other. Actress Julie Kavner provides not only the voice of Marge in the animated series, but Marge’s mother Jacqueline and sisters Patty and Selma as well. Dan Castellaneta voices Homer, Grampa Simpson, Krusty the Clown, Barney Gumble, Mayor Quimby, and Hans Moleman.

“If music be the food of love, play on, Give me excess of it; that surfeiting, The appetite may sicken, and so die.” ― William Shakespeare

Which is, I'm an optimist that two people can be together to work out their conflicts. And that commitment, I think, might be what love is, because they both grow from their relationship.

Social Security checks will soon become a thing of the past. Starting in March, all Social Security benefits will be paid electronically or with a Direct Express debit card. If you've signed up since May 2011, whether for Social Security, government pension or veterans benefits, you've been required to use the new system. If you signed up before that and are still receiving checks, you need to make a change -- quickly. A big reason for the switch is that paper checks aren't as safe as electronic payments. Checks can be stolen out of your mailbox, or before they even get that far. That's not to say electronic payments are foolproof. If you become the victim of identity theft, scammers can get into your account and have payments to you sent elsewhere. (Remember that no one from Social Security will ever call you to ask for your banking information or Social Security number. If that happens, report it to the fraud hotline at 1-800269-0271.) If you don't want direct deposit to your bank, you can sign up to receive a Direct Express card. The benefit amount is added to your card, which you can then use to pay bills, get cash, make purchases and more. Most card-related activities are free, but some do incur a fee. Your best bet is to go ahead and sign up for electronic payments. To get started, call Social Security at 1-800-333-1795 or go to your own bank. Online, go to www. GoDirect.org. Either way, you'll need the following information in hand: --Your Social Security number --The amount of your most recent benefit check, as well as that 12-digit check number --Your bank's routing transit number and the account type.

February 5th 2013

December 22– January 19

Come on, Capricorn. This is not the time to quit. You’re too close to give up on a goal now. Look to another for the motivation you seek.

January 20– February 18

A relative makes an amazing recovery, and it’s up to you to get the word out, Aquarius. A party could be in order. Magical moments at work put you on cloud nine.

February 19– March 20

Relax, Pisces. Resources are not as scarce as they seem. Someone has been holding out on you at work—and for good reason. Listen before you act.

March 21– April 19

Phooey, Aries. You are making a mountain out of a molehill. Stop with the melodrama and focus on what is really bothering you. The fix is easy.

April 20– May 20

Home improvement projects top the list, but lucky for you, Taurus, help is on the way. Travel plans get underway, and the deals abound.

May 21– June 21

Gentle Gemini. You don’t like to make a fuss at home, but you have no choice. Your pleas for help will continue to fall on deaf ears if you don’t.

June 22– July 22

Attention to detail is essential to success. Go over your work repeatedly to ensure all is as it should be, Cancer. Someone in authority is watching.

July 23– August 22 Ooh-la-la, Leo. Sparks fly at home with a gift, and magical times ensue. A kidfriendly project breaks the ice at a meeting and gets the creative juices flowing.

August 23– September 22 Truly, Virgo. You are much more talented than you give yourself credit for. Believe in yourself and reach for the stars. A furry addition perks up spirits at home.

September 23– October 22

Nothing is a lost cause, Libra, not even that young friend you’re ready to give up on. Look, learn and listen, and when the time comes, you will have the right words.

October 23– November 21

Stupendous, Scorpio. There is no other way to describe your work ethic this week. You will attack every task with zeal, and it will pay off big.

The budget crunching is over, Sagittarius. Celebrate with a night on the town. A minor change in attitude at work brings a project to completion.

Grandma Moses is proof positive that you’re never too old to learn something new. Take a look at the life of this celebrated folk artist who started a new career in her 70s. • Grandma Moses was born Anna Mary Robertson in upstate New York in 1860. As a child, she began painting, squeezing juice out of grapes and lemons to obtain colors. • At the tender age of 12, Anna left home to work on a neighboring farm doing housework. At 27, she married one of the farm’s hired men, Thomas Moses. While on their honeymoon to North Carolina, the couple spied a farm in Virginia they liked, and invested their meager $600 savings to rent the place, where they remained for 20 years. For spare cash, Anna sold homemade potato chips and butter to the neighbors. The Moses had 10 children, only five of whom survived. • The family then moved to a farm at Eagle Bridge, New York, and it was here that Anna completed her first painting. While wallpapering her parlor, she ran out of paper, pasted up plain white paper and painted a scene. That first work still hangs today in a Bennington, Vermont museum. • When Anna was 67, Thomas passed away and she handed over the farm duties to her son and daughter-in-law. During her spare time, she embroidered pictures with yarn wool, which were much admired by family and friends. However, arthritis set in, forcing her to give up her needlework when it became too difficult to hold the needle. But she could hold a brush, and so turned to painting at age 76. • Grandma Moses laid Masonite flat on an old kitchen table for her work rather than using an easel. She shared her “studio” with the washer and dryer. She charged $2 for a small painting and $3 for a large one. When she was 78, an art collector from New York City happened to be driving through Grandma’s small community and saw her paintings in the window of the W.D. Thomas Pharmacy. He bought every one, then drove to the Moses’ farm to purchase all she had on hand. Three major exhibits followed shortly after, and Anna was on the road to fame. • Grandma Moses lived past her 101st birthday. LIFE magazine featured her on the cover of its September, 19, 1960 issue in honor of her 100th birthday. Twenty-five paintings were done after she hit the century mark. Her art hangs in nine U.S. museums, and another hangs in the White House. In 2004, one of her painting appeared on the PBS broadcast Antiques Roadshow, where it was appraised at $60,000. The painting “The Old Checkered House, 1862,” had been purchased in the 1940s for less than $10, and had appeared in a 1946 ad campaign for DuBarry cosmetics’ “Primitive Red” lip gloss. Her highest-selling work to date, her 1943 painting “Sugaring Off,” sold in 2006 for $1.2 million. •

Fellow artist Norman Rockwell included Grandma’s likeness in his 1948 painting “Christmas Homecoming,” featured on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post’s Christmas issue that year.

• Fans of the 1960s television comedy series The Beverly Hillbillies” may recall that the name of the character known as Granny was Daisy Moses. She was named such as a tribute to Grandma Moses, who had died shortly before the series premiered.

STRANGE BUT TRUE by Samantha Weaver

Q: After several days, I finally located the source of a mysterious leak along the inside wall of my basement. The flexible drain pipe from the back of my dishwasher cracked, so that water pours down the kitchen wall behind the cabinet. My dishwasher is pretty old, and I'm not sure I can find a replacement part. Should I just buy a new appliance? -- Bart C., Villa Rica, Ga.

A: Chances are, you'll be able to find a similar-size replacement at your homeimprovement store. And you can always check with the manufacturer, either through a phone call or via its website, to see if the part is still available. At any rate, you don't want the flooding to continue.

(Don't purchase a shorter (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc. length, by the way. The hose needs to be set up so that its middle part is higher than the inlet/outlet connections.)

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.

LANGUAGE OF

Are you thinking of sending flowers to someone special on Valentine’s Day? You may want to check out of the meaning of some of our favorite blossoms before doing so! • Floriography, or the language of flowers, began during the Victorian era, when individuals used flower symbolism to express feelings they were unable to speak aloud, or wanted a discreet form of communication. Various blooms were used to send secret or coded messages of love and other sentiments. Flower dictionaries containing the meanings of different varieties filled the shelves as the long list grew. • Most of us know that sending red roses denotes enduring, passionate romantic love, meant for the love of your life. Pink roses are for a lesser affection, and yellow are to be used to symbolize the joy of a devoted friendship. While white roses represent purity and virtue, a bouquet of mixed red and white roses is used to designate unity with your loved one. Can’t afford a dozen roses? Just a single red rose in full bloom also says, “I love you.” Trying to tell your loved one it was love at first sight? Lavender roses are the symbol for that sentiment. • Blue flowers are used to send a message of calm, beauty, tranquility, and peace. Specifically, blue hyacinths indicate constancy and faithfulness, as do blue violets, which represent faithfulness and say, “I’ll always be true.” If violets are unavailable, blue forget-me-nots also let the recipient know that your love is true. • The towering stems of gladioli are symbolic of a sword, and they even take their name from the Lain word gladius, meaning “sword.” A bouquet of these stunning spikes expresses to the recipient that he or she has “pierced the giver’s heart with passion.” • If your sweetheart is a rare beauty, send her the gift of orchids. Perhaps there is someone to whom you’d like say, “You’re lovely,” but you want to do it secretly, without divulging your identity. The gardenia is an excellent symbol for this purpose. Asking to have your affection returned? Deliver jonquils, a fragrant member of the narcissus family. • Is there an individual who you highly respect? A sunny bunch of daffodils will convey that message. However, if you’re trying to tell your egotistical acquaintance, “You love yourself too well,” have the florist deliver narcissus. • Who wouldn’t want to receive a bouquet of primroses? Their message is, “I can’t live without you.” Similarly, white lilies proclaim, “It’s heavenly to be with you,” and Calla lilies are representative of “magnificent beauty.” • Perhaps you’ve offended your loved one. Sending purple hyacinths says, “I am sorry, please forgive me.” Receiving striped carnations means a refusal to an offer of affection, and declares, “Sorry, I can’t be with you.” • You certainly don’t want to receive a gift of foxglove, symbolic of insincerity, or a Venus flytrap, representing deceit, or rhododendron, meaning danger or caution. Likewise, marigolds are a declaration of jealousy. • Are you thinking of a dear but absent friend? A bouquet of mixed pansies will convey those remembrances. The pansy even takes its name from the French word, pensée, meaning “thought or remembrance.” • Be careful about sending orange blossoms to a newlywed couple – it’s a wish for their fertility! A gift of peonies to any married couple is a hope for continued happiness.
