This week, Tidbits continues with its lexiphanicism — showing off with big words! It’s time to learn more about these whatchamacallits and thingamajigs. • Those who love cats are ailurophilists, while those who love dogs are cynophilists. People who love all animals are referred to as philotherialists.

• Affordable 300-items menu and continental cuisine.

• Misogamists and misopedists often go hand in hand. They hate marriage and children, respectively. Gamophobists don’t hate marriage; they’re just afraid of it.

• Dancing All Night & a Full Liquor Bar

• Stop, thief! Look at the wide variety of terms used to describe these crooks — brigand, snaffler, kirkbuzzer, efter, ladrone or footpad. The snaffler is mainly a horse thief, while the kirkbuzzer robs only churches. The efter steals from theater customers while the performance is on, and ladrones and footpads are muggers who thieve while on foot. A specialized pickpocket who targets only churchgoers is referred to as an autem diver. SE

UNUSUAL WORDS (continued): • Pregnant women often have to endure allotriophagy, that craving for strange foods. Hopefully, they will choose items that are salutiferous, meaning conducive to health or well-being. • If you shilly-shally, dodder, quail, haw, demur or shrink before making a decision, you merely hesitate. Let’s say you’re diffident, gelid, reticent, chary or delitescent — you’re considered rather reserved. Now if someone calls you a miscreant, wastral, garmin, reprobate or varlet, consider yourself insulted. You’ve been labeled a scoundrel! • What do the words coquelicot, tilleul, smaragdine and

smalt have in common? They are all names for different colors! Coquelicot is a brilliant poppy red; tilleul is a yellowish-green color; smaragdine is emerald green; and smalt is a deep blue. Speaking of colors, there is an actual name for those who fear the color purple — porphyrophobia. • Good words come in small packages! To aby means to make amends or atone for an offense. A wen is an enormously congested city. To soften something by soaking is to ret it. That broad sash we see wrapped around a kimono is an obi. And kir is a drink composed of black currant syrup and white wine. • Don’t confuse philalethists with philatelists. The former are lovers of truth, while the latter love collecting postage

• How about that really boring person you meet at a party who has absolutely no conversational skills? This dull dude is a macrologist, and he frequently engages in battology — wearisome redundancy and trifling talk. He’s enough to give you a bad case of drapetomania, that uncontrollable urge to run away! • Some folks are famous for mentimutation — the act of changing their minds. Some might actually have hypobulia, which is an inability to come to a decision. • Do you have big feet? You’re sciapodous! How about great big ears? You’re macrotous! Maybe buck teeth, too? You’re a gubbertush! Is there a noticeable gap between those buck teeth? That’s called a diastema. Let’s add a buccula to the mix; that’s a double chin. • Everyone knows a breedbate, an individual who seems to enjoy starting arguments and stirring up controversy. Breedbates are occasionally suggilated — beaten black and blue! And how about that lazy loafer you know? He’s a drotchel, scobberlotcher, ragabash, lobcock, lollard or sluggard. • Over the baize and into the side pocket! Baize is the green felt-like cloth covering your pool table. • At one time or another, everyone has had the misfortune of sitting behind a milver, a person who chatters non-stop through a movie. Related terms include pleniloquent (one who is full of talk) and blatteroon (a constant talker). Many of them have a cacoethes loquendi, that unquenchable desire to talk. No matter how you say it, you just wish they’d shut up! (Several of them are probably somniloquent as well, meaning they even talk in their sleep!) • The longest word in the English language is pneumonoultramicrosocpicsilicovolcanocon-iosis, a disease resulting from over-exposure to ultra-microscopic silicone dust. Inhaling the dust found near volcanoes is a major cause of this disease. If this word frightens you, you may have hippopotomonstro-squippedaliophobia, the fear of long words. • When the time comes to absquatulate, it means it’s time

UNUSUAL WORDS (continued):


to pull up stakes, to decamp and flee. • There are numerous kinds of beggars — A toothless beggar is a mumblecrust. One who pretends that his tongue has been cut out is a dommerer, while a female beggar who borrows or hires several children temporarily to arouse sympathy is an autem mort. There’s a whole new generation of beggars. The beggar whose parents are beggars is a palliard. If he bangs on a dish or cup to attract your attention, he’s a clapperdudgeon. No matter how you say it — mendicant, cadger, bezonian, panhandler, sponge, supplicant or gaberlunzie — He’s still a beggar. But, only a beggar monk can be a gyrovague. • What are you afraid of? If you are an epistaxiophobic, you are afraid of getting a nosebleed. Astrapophobics hide under the bed during thunder and lightning storms, while nosocomephobics have a fear of hospitals. Those suffering from pnigophobia are afraid of choking on fish bones, and koimetrophobics avoid cemeteries. Most people wouldn’t see anything unusual in being a little selacophobic or afraid of sharks.

• When thinking of someone you know who is a workaholic, remember the technical term for someone who loves work is an ergophile. • Pity the poor fellow who’s married to an objurgatrix! His wife is a nagging, carping, fault-finding battle-ax of a woman. Other terms of endearment for this special lady include termagant, shrew, beldam, virago, harridan and xanthippe. • Something that causes cancer is said to be carcinogenic. Cariogenic items are much less serious — They cause dental cavities.

• When you think of Big Ben, the tall tower surely comes to mind, but the moniker actually applies to the bell housed


• Just as the Clock Tower isn’t the first, neither is Big Ben the first bell. The first one developed a four-inch crack while it was being tested in 1857, and a new one was cast. Sixteen white horses pulled a carriage carrying the bell to the New Palace Yard. It took 18 hours to raise the bell into the belfry. Late in 1859, two fractures were found in Big Ben. The hammer was replaced with a lighter version, and the bell was rotated so that an undamaged section would be struck. This second bell still resides in the Tower.

• During World War I, the bell was not rung, and the clock was unlit at night to protect it from German Zeppelin attacks. During World War II, the bells were rung, but also from a darkened tower.

• Although it’s one of the world’s most famous tourist attractions, only United Kingdom residents are allowed inside to tour Big Ben. Tours must be booked well in advance only through a Parliament member, with parties limited to 16 people, who must climb the 334 stairs to the top of its 11 floors, since there is no elevator.

Big Ben wasn’t rung for the first time until that July.

• The tower is 316 feet (96.3 m) tall, about 16 stories. Each of the clock’s four dials is 23 feet square (49.15 sq. m). The minute hands are 14 feet (4.26 m) long, while the numerals are two feet (0.6 m) tall. The base of each dial contains a Latin inscription, which translates “O Lord, keep safe our Queen Victoria the First.” We Make Office & House Calls

FAMOUS LANDMARKS OF THE WORLD: keeping time in May of 1859. The Great Bell known as

Big Ben is a well-known symbol of London, towering above the Parliament buildings. Here is a collection of facts you may not know about this famous landmark.

within the clock tower, officially known as the Great Bell. It is most likely named after London’s first Commissioner for works, Sir Benjamin Hall, and his name is inscribed on the bell. It was originally intended that it would be called the Royal Victoria bell.

• The tower itself is named, not so creatively, the Clock Tower and is the third-tallest free-standing clock tower in the world. It’s the third tower to be built on Parliament’s grounds. The first was begun in 1288 during the reign of King Edward I and also contained a clock and a bell named Great Edward, which was rung on the hour. This was replaced in 1367 with England’s first public chiming Published on the 1st & 3rd Friday of Every Month! clock. It stood for 340 years. • When a devastating fire destroyed much of the palace of Westminster in 1834, the plans to rebuild did not include a new tower. These plans were altered to include it in 1836, but actual construction of the current Clock Tower did not begin until 1843. Construction continued for nearly 16 years. When the clock was finally installed, it was discovered that it wouldn’t work because the cast iron minute hands were too heavy! They were replaced with lighter copper hands, and the four-sided clock began

Junk food might be defined as “food that contributes lots of calories but has little nutritional value.” Let’s learn a little more about a few not-so-healthy choices. • What’s for breakfast? If you choose a bowl of Trix cereal, that product will be 38 percent sugar and will add a little red, yellow and blue dye to your system. How about some Froot Loops? Your portion will be 41 percent sugar, unless you opt for the marshmallow version, which computes to 48 percent sugar and more of those dyes. If you’re cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs, you’ll have a 44 percent ratio of sugar. A healthier choice would be Wheat Chex or Shredded Wheat, both at less than 3 percent sugar. • In 1930, baker James Dewar was dismayed that the strawberry season was so short; it was limiting his sales of shortcakes. In order to prolong his sales past the fresh fruit season, he experimented with filling h i s sponge cakes with cream. He called them “Twinkle Toes Shoes,” but the name was later shortened to “Twinkies.” Hostess bakes up about 500 million Twinkies a year, each with about 150 calories. That creamy center is no longer cream at all, but rather mostly Crisco shortening. • When Pringles debuted in October 1968 in their signature cylindrical can, they were known as Pringles Newfangled

Potato Chips. Other manufacturers immediately objected, claiming that the product was not a potato chip at all, considering that only 42 percent of the snack is potatobased product, with the remainder composed of wheat starch and corn and rice flours. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration ordered the company to change the name to “potato crisps.” The snack was named for a street in Cincinnati, Pringle Drive, spotted by a Procter & Gamble employee. • The American Dietetic Association recommends a maximum daily caloric intake of 2,000 calories for a sedentary adult and a maximum of 60 grams of fat. Order up a Big Mac with a super-sized Coke and fries, and you’ll ingest 1,460 calories and 58 grams of fat. That’s a pretty scary figure when you consider that the average person visits McDonalds 1,811 times in his or her lifetime. Want to burn off that McDonalds lunch? It will take you seven straight hours of walking to burn off the above meal. • Although popcorn seems to fill up the box of Cracker Jacks, it’s not the principal ingredient — sugar and corn syrup are. This tasty snack was introduced at the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair, but the box didn’t contain a toy prize until 1912. • In addition to being high in calories, soda pop can lead to significant tooth enamel loss. The acids in soft drinks are nearly as corrosive to enamel as battery acid. In an

experiment conducted by dentists, one group of children were given a can of pop every day for three years, and another group, water. The pop drinkers had 50 to 150 percent more tooth decay! • Snickers, the most popular candy bar in the world, is a 280-calorie treat with 14 grams of fat. It takes 100 tons of peanuts to produce the 15 million bars manufactured daily. Frank Mars, founder of the Mars candy company, named the confection after the Mars family’s favorite horse. • Visit your local 31-flavor ice cream parlor and ask for a double-scoop. With 31 varieties, there are 496 different combinations you could receive.

On the day of your party, pass one out to each child, or hide them in your yard for guests to find in a treasure hunt. Invite them all to follow you to the sidewalk. Tell them to tap-tap-tap their eggs against the concrete. The eggs will break after a few tentative hits, and voila! Your party guests have just hatched a slew of baby dinos into the world! Perfect for a “birthday” favor.

SAND CLAY RECIPE Put 1 cup clean sand, 1/2 cup cornstarch, 1 1/2 teaspoons powdered alum (in the spice section of your market) and 1/2 cup water in an old cooking pot. Stir with hands or a spoon. An adult should then place the pot on the stove, turn heat to medium and continue stirring with a spoon. As it becomes warm, it will begin to liquefy. Continue to stir for 2-3 minutes until clay thickens. Remove from heat and spoon mixture onto cutting board. Let cool. Make above-mentioned party-favor eggs or enjoy molding the clay into shapes and characters. There are probably as many ideas as there are grains of sand between your fingers!

Passing off unhealthful foods as “healthy” is especially troubling at a time when 16.9 million American children and adolescents are obese. A recent study in the journal Pediatrics found that nearly one-quarter of U.S. adolescents have diabetes or pre-diabetes. Findings: PCRM dietitians found that most so-called “healthful” kids meals are still alarmingly high in fat, cholesterol, and sodium. Here are the five worst “healthy” fast-food kids meals: Five Worst “Healthy” Fast-Food Kids Meals: Meal Nutrition Shocker Chick-fil-A Kids Grilled Nuggets Kids Meal Contains the same amount of cholesterol as a Big Mac. McDonald’s Cheeseburger Happy Meal Contains more sodium than 13 orders of McDonald’s kids fries. Sonic Kids’ Jr. Burger Meal Contains more sugar than two Twinkies. Burger King Hamburger Kids Meal Contains almost as much cholesterol as six slices of pork bacon. Denny’s Build Your Own Jr. Grand Slam Contains almost 100 more milligrams of sodium than the government recommends children consume at breakfast. Background: An apple a day doesn’t always keep the doctor away. Not when it’s part of an otherwise unhealthful kids meal. Restaurants are increasingly marketing “healthy” versions of kids meals, but often these meals feature the same unhealthy entrées paired with healthier sides, like apple slices instead of french fries. Along with those apple slices, kids are still getting cholesterol-laden chicken, artery-clogging cheeseburgers, and cancerpromoting processed meats. Reduced-fat and fat-free

Many of the fast-food chains scrutinized in the report are part of Kids LiveWell, a National Restaurant Association program launched last year that is supposed to promote nutritious options for kids at chain restaurants.

Last year, top fast-food chains including McDonald’s and Burger King announced plans to make kids meals healthier. Nearly a year after those announcements, nutrition experts with the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) evaluated kids meals from these and other fastfood restaurants and found that many are still loaded with fat, cholesterol, and sodium. These “healthy” meals put children at risk for obesity, diabetes, cancer, and other diet-related diseases.

But typical offerings include bacon at Cracker Barrel, sirloin steak at Outback Steak House, and grilled cheese at Au Bon Pain. McDonald’s does not participate in Kids LiveWell. But last July, the fast-food giant also announced plans to make its Happy Meals more nutritious. This spring, McDonald’s launched commercials to emphasize the “benefits” of eating Happy Meals. But the three Happy Meal entrée choices it offers are inherently high in fat, cholesterol, and sodium: hamburger, cheeseburger, and chicken nuggets. McDonald’s did introduce apple slices and smaller packets of french fries as side dish options in Happy Meals. Key Factors: PCRM dietitians looked at several key factors to determine the healthfulness of each item: High Fat Content: Diets high in fat have been linked by scientific research to increased risk of cancers, diabetes, and heart disease. High-fat, low-fiber foods boost the hormones that promote cancer. Specifically, diets high in meat, dairy products, fried foods, and vegetable oils cause an increase in the production of estrogen. Extra estrogen increases cancer risk in the breast and other organs sensitive to sex hormones. In January 2010, the Centers for Disease Control and prevention found that 20 percent of adolescents ages 12 to 19 have at least one abnormal lipid level (LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, or triglycerides). Among overweight and obese adolescents, those rates were higher, with 22 percent of overweight and 43 percent of obese children having one or more abnormality. Trans fats raise LDL (“bad”) cholesterol levels and lower HDL (“good”) cholesterol levels, increasing the risk of cardiovascular disease. Naturally occurring trans fats are only contained in animal products. Fat contains 9 calories per gram and is typically more abundant in animal products, especially saturated fat, which significantly increases bad cholesterol. Sodium: Diets high in sodium can increase the risk of high blood pressure, a condition that can lead to cardiovascular disease and kidney problems. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommends that children’s intake of sodium should be less than 640 to 740 milligrams (depending on age) at lunch and less than 430 to 500 milligrams (depending on age) at breakfast. Some health experts suggest consuming less than 1,500 milligrams of sodium per day. Cholesterol: Cholesterol is a waxy substance found in the bloodstream and in the body’s cells. Every animal cell contains cholesterol as it is a necessary component

of the cell’s membrane. The body naturally makes more than enough cholesterol to serve this biological function. High blood-cholesterol levels are strongly linked to risk of heart disease. High levels of LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and low levels of HDL (“good”) cholesterol increase the risk of heart disease and stroke. Saturated fats and trans fats both increase LDL levels. Consuming large amounts of cholesterol in one’s diet may eventually lead to reduced heart function. Fiber helps to remove blood cholesterol and is only found in plant foods. Red and Processed Meats: Consuming processed meats increases the risk of colorectal cancer, according to a large number of studies, including the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) study. A new study from the Harvard School of Public Health says that a daily serving of processed meats, like hot dogs, sausages, and bacon, increases the risk of premature death by 20 percent. Each daily serving of red meat increased the risk of dying by 12 percent. Detailed Results: PCRM dietitians obtained nutrient information by reviewing the company websites. Dietitians evaluated each item based on data including the item’s calories, total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, and sugar. Chick-fil-A Kids Grilled Nuggets Kids Meal Six grilled nuggets, waffle potato fries, and low-fat chocolate milk 570 calories, 19 grams of fat, 4 grams of saturated fat, 75 milligrams of cholesterol, 1,150 milligrams of sodium, 23 grams of sugars Earlier this year, Chick-fil-A added grilled chicken nuggets to its kids meals menu, touting them as a “healthier” alternative to fried chicken nuggets. But the grilled chicken nuggets alone contribute 840 milligrams of sodium. And combined with low-fat chocolate milk and waffle potato fries, this meal is also loaded with fat and cholesterol. Grilled chicken is the largest source of PhIP, a potent carcinogen that may play a role in the development of breast, prostate, and other cancers. Because of the high cholesterol levels in meals like this, the American Academy of Pediatrics has endorsed a recommendation that all children have a cholesterol screening performed between the ages of 9 and 11. McDonald’s Cheeseburger Happy Meal Cheeseburger, fries, apple slices, and low-fat white milk 520 calories, 20 grams of fat, 8 grams of saturated fat, 50 milligrams of cholesterol, 920 milligrams of sodium, 22 grams of sugars McDonald’s announced last year that it would make its kids meals more healthful. But McDonald’s Cheeseburger Happy Meal won’t make anybody’s heart happy. The cheeseburger is loaded with unhealthful fat and cholesterol, which contribute to childhood obesity. And the meal has more sodium than a child should eat in a meal, according to guidelines from the IOM. (Continued on page 9)

• It is still not known who made the following sage observation: “Never attribute to malice what can be adequately explained by stupidity.” • If you are an aficionado of the word game Scrabble, you probably know that there are only five words that can be played using a q but no u. In case you’re not in the know, those words are “faqir,” “qaid, “ “qoph, “ “qindar” and “qintar. “ • In 1774, surveyors in Maryland marked off a parcel of land by mistake. The error was immortalized when the town that grew up on that land adopted the name Accident. • The English word “mistletoe” comes from an Anglo-

Saxon phrase that means “dung on a twig.” It seems that the branches where mistletoe is often found have white splotches on them, which some say resemble bird droppings. • The martial art that is known today as karate actually originated in India and spread to China before becoming popular in 17th-century Japan, where it was dubbed karate, which means “empty hand” in Japanese. • These days you’ll rarely see an elected official with a beard, but facial hair wasn’t always considered to be a liability in politics. In fact, it’s been reported that Abraham Lincoln was inspired to grow a beard while he was running for president in 1860 because of a letter from an 11-yearold girl. Grace Bedell wrote to Lincoln that a beard would make him “look a great deal better, for your face is so thin. All the ladies like whiskers.”

380 calories, 10 grams of fat, 4 grams of saturated fat, 40 milligrams of cholesterol, 615 milligrams of sodium, 24 grams of sugars This meal features a cholesterol-laden hamburger as the entrée. Adding apple slices to the meal helped Burger King qualify for the Kids LiveWell program, but the meal contains 40 milligrams of cholesterol—almost as much as six slices of pork bacon.

332 calories, 11 grams of fat, 4 grams of saturated fat, 40 milligrams of cholesterol, 570 milligrams of sodium, 30 grams of sugars

This meal contains more sugar than two Twinkies. The caramel dipping sauce may be fat-free, but it’s loaded with sugar. The consumption of added sugars, which are sweeteners added to processed and prepared foods, has been associated with measures of cardiovascular disease risk among adolescents, including adverse cholesterol concentrations, according to a new report from the CDC.

of the besieged city. For nearly a year, supplies from American planes sustained the more than 2 million people in West Berlin.

• On June 29, 1613, the Globe Theater, where most of Shakespeare’s plays debuted, burns down. The Globe was built in 1599 from the timbers of London’s very first permanent theater, Burbage’s Theater. The galleries could seat about 1,000 people, with room for another 2,000 “groundlings,” who could stand around the stage. • On June 28, 1888, writer Robert Louis Stevenson and his family leave San Francisco for their first visit to the South Seas. Stevenson, an adventurous traveler plagued by tuberculosis, was seeking a healthier climate. His novel “Treasure Island” was published in 1883. • On June 27, 1922, the American Library Association awards the first Newbery Medal, honoring the year’s best children’s book, to “The Story of Mankind” by Hendrik Willem van Loon. The Newbery Medal seeks to encourage originality and excellence in the field of children’s books. • On June 26, 1948, in response to the Soviet blockade of land routes into West Berlin, the United States begins a massive airlift of food, water and medicine to the citizens

• On June 25, 1956, the last Packard rolls off the production line at Packard’s plant in Detroit. The classic American luxury car used the famously enigmatic slogan “Ask the Man Who Owns One.” • On June 30, 1962, Sandy Koufax strikes out 13 batters and walks five to lead the Brooklyn Dodgers over the New York Mets 5-0 with his first career no-hitter. Koufax went on to throw three more no-hitters, including a perfect game on Sept. 9, 1965, in which he allowed no hits and no walks. • On July 1, 1979, the Sony Walkman -- the world’s first low-cost, portable music player -- goes on sale in Japan. The initial production run of 30,000 units looked to be too ambitious, as only 3,000 were sold at $150 apiece in the first month. Some 200 million sales later, Sony retired the cassette Walkman in 2010. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Traditional strudel dough is often hand-pulled. However, using phyllo dough lets you make this Austrian treat in half the time. For variety, other fruits, such as pears, apricots, or plums, can be used instead of apples. 2 1/2 pounds slightly sour apples 1/4 cup soft non-hydrogenated, dairy-free margarine, plus enough to spread over dough 3/4 cup bread crumbs 3/4 cup granulated sugar or rock sugar 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1 teaspoon cinnamon 2 tablespoons rum 1/2 cup raisins 1 pound vegan phyllo dough 1 powdered sugar, to sprinkle over baked strudel Preheat oven to 400°F. Peel apples, cut into quarters, remove seeds, then cut into 1/8-inch slices. Heat 1/4 cup margarine in a pan, then add bread crumbs and roast until golden brown. Let cool. Mix apples with sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, rum, and raisins. Spread margarine evenly over phyllo dough, and then layer bread crumbs on top, followed by apple mixture, leaving a 1/2-inch margin on all sides. Roll the strudel tightly and close the ends. Place on a greased baking sheet. Spread more margarine over top of the strudel. Bake for about 40 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Slice into 8 pieces. Serve hot or cold.

De-Cluttering For Mental Health Q: My husband has claimed pretty much the entire garage with his workshop, tools and lawn-care equipment. A lot of it is necessary, but he just keeps collecting stuff. He’s got least three of the same screwdrivers and wrenches, and endless jars of old screws, nails and fasteners. I’d love to be able to park one of our cars in there. Or at least, you know, walk around without tripping over stuff. How can I get him to clean out the place without starting a feud? -- Carol T., Providence, R.I. A: Getting your husband to neaten up what’s become his man-cave can be a real chore. He probably sees as necessary what you see as extraneous: those extra sets of tools have a purpose, at least in his mind. Talk directly to him about it -- the trick being not to accuse, nag or cajole him. He may not be very receptive to your request that he give you enough space to park the car in the garage, but tell him that’s what you want. Don’t build it into an argument; he’s likely to just dig his heels in and not

One option you might bring up is that the extra tool sets and other unneeded items can be sold by throwing a yard sale or putting them up online on a sales or auction site. The profit can be used to buy an item for the workshop, like a power tool, a refrigerator or an old couch. HOME TIP: A tackle box is one way to store different sizes and types of fasteners like bolts, nuts, washers, and so on. It’s portable and allows for quick access to the items you need to complete a repair.

The recent Tom Selleck TV movie, “Jesse Stone: Benefit

HOLLYWOOD -- Aug. 5 marks 50 years since the strange and curious death of Marilyn Monroe. The former Norma Jean Baker is still one of the highest-earning and recognizable images from Hollywood’s history. Today many people believe her supposed suicide was a carefully orchestrated murder to keep her from exposing Kennedy secrets. Some of her personal effects were sold recently for more than $6 million at auction, and in May, a 25-foot statue of MM by artist Stewart Johnson was erected in Palm Springs, Calif. It’s the scene from “The Seven Year Itch” of her standing on the subway grating with her dress blowing up. “Forever Marilyn” weighs 34,300 pounds, has legs 14 feet high and a head-and-torso section 10 feet high and 7 feet wide. It’s on display for a year where PS Resorts plans the Desert Fashion Plaza revitalization. The statue cost $78,000 in private donations to assemble, insure and transport from Chicago, where it was formally displayed. There’s controversy already: Is it art, an eyesore or too big for its space? The Palm Springs Chamber of Commerce hopes it’ll draw more tourists to Palm Springs. The real question is: Why are we still so obsessed with everything Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley and “The Wizard of Oz”?

that this would be the last one. Why would it kill a ratings grabber like that? For the same reason given by NBC when it canceled Kathy Bates’ “Harry’s Law.” While both grabbed high ratings overall, they were lower in the 1849 demographic needed to attract high-paying sponsors. When will networks learn that older folk have money and buy lots of products too? If you want more Jesse Stone movies, write to CBS. Are movie studios with blockbuster films running scared? Given the low box-office performances of “John Carter,” “Battleship” and “Dark Shadows,” Paramount Pictures moved the release of “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” from June 29 to March 2013. It removed all the merchandise from stores and lost its hefty investment in Super Bowl ads. Paramount says it wants to turn it into a 3D movie and build up Channing Tatum’s part now that he’s a star. A nice trick, since he died in the first “G.I. Joe” film. Meanwhile, Brad Pitt’s film “World War Z” has been moved from December to June 2013, and Jeremy Renner’s action-adventure film “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters” was pulled last March and will now open in January. See what happens when you cater to the 18-49 demographic? I rest my case! Send letters to Tony Rizzo’s Hollywood, 8306 Wilshire Blvd., No. 362, Beverly Hills, CA 90211..

It can be pressed into the grate to get all the gunk off, both before or after grilling. • “I love my windowbox planters, but I would always get dirt splashed on my windows or the sill when it rained. My friend advised me to put a shallow layer of small gravel over the dirt. It looks nice and there is no splatter after watering or rain.” -- DR.L. in Washington • To soothe minor burns in the kitchen, use the cut side of a raw potato pressed into the burn area for a minute or two. • “Personal appliances can get very dirty and can harbor many species of bacteria. One of the worst, in my opinion, is the cellphone. Make sure you clean it regularly by wiping front and back surfaces with a soft cloth dampened with alcohol.

Do Pets Really Need Vaccinations?

DEAR JANINE: I think you should talk to your pets’ veterinarian before making a decision that could negatively affect their health, and maybe yours. Vaccinations don’t just protect pets against rabies. They also receive vaccinations, particularly as puppies and kittens, for distemper, feline leukemia, parvovirus and a number of other serious and potentially fatal diseases. There are diseases that can also pass between pets and humans, and vaccinations can prevent them. “Pets can easily contract Giardia and Leptospirosis from standing water or damp grass,” said Dr. Meg Connelly of the Willard Veterinary Clinic in Quincy, Mass. “Many dogs love swimming in water, sniffing around in the mud or rolling in the wet grass. Unfortunately, without immunization protection, these pets are at risk for contracting a serious or even fatal illness that can easily be spread to humans.” Keeping shots up to date is one of the best ways to prevent both your pets and you from becoming ill. And even though they seem pricey up front, they are nothing compared to the cost of medical care if a pet should become ill from a disease it could have been vaccinated against.
