your old serviCeMen are baCk! BOOK ‘EM! (continued): • Achoo! Apparently, psuedophedrine is illegal in Japan. If you’ve got a cold and need Sudafed, don’t take it with you when you go there! • Rocky Hill, Connecticut law states that any person, partnership, club or establishment cannot have more than four “amusement devices” which includes pinball machines, coin-operated slot machines, etc. • Did you know that bicycles can’t be used on park benches or in tennis courts in Eagle, Idaho? • A bill in Indiana states that the value of Pi is 3. The bill was proposed in 1897 and though it passed in the House of Representatives, it was indefinitely postponed in the Senate. • You’ve probably seen it in an old movie - someone is speaking publicly and the audience starts to chuck tomatoes or pies at the them. Laughter and chaos ensue. But think again before you decide to throw a tomato if you’re from Kentucky. Throwing “missiles of any kind” at a public speaker is punishable with anywhere from a $50-500 fine and/or six months to one year imprisonment.

• Want to watch a bit of tele the next time you’re in the United Kingdom? Here’s a bit of information you might not of known about the British television. You must buy a license when you purchase your television in the United Kingdom. You have to have a license to receive a television signal and it is against the law if you do not. However, in some areas, some senior citizens can be eligible for a free license. The license covers any device used to watch tele and includes TVs, DVD players, computers and mobile phones. One license covers an entire household, however, and costs £142.50 for color and £48 for black and white each year.

Thank You, Jodi & Christine Panache Shoes BOOK ‘EM! (continued): • In the Philippines, license plates are coded and those that end in certain numbers are only allowed to drive on certain days of the week. This is to help with keeping congestion down during rush hour, so be careful if you ever rent a car there! • Did you know that bear wrestling matches are prohibited in Alabama? Bear exploration is considered a Class B felony in Alabama and Class B felonies are punishable with anywhere from two to twenty years imprisonment. • It’s against the law for llama, burrows and pigs to graze on city property in Boulder, Colorado. This goes the same for most other four-legged creatures, like cows, sheep, goats, mules and horses. • It’s against the law to honk your car horn at any shop that serves cold beverages or sandwiches after 9 p.m. in Arkansas. We’re assuming this means to prevent noise violations, not scaring someone while they eat a sandwich. • Cathedral City, California law prohibits the throwing of any of the following items into a cesspool or down a manhole: glass, hay, dirt, garbage or waste, offal or yard trimmings. • In Athens, Georgia it is against the law to whistle, hum or sing loudly on a public street between the hours of 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. Sunday - Thursday and 12 a.m. - 7 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. This means you get a whole extra hour to whistle as loud as you want on the weekends. Pucker up! • Florida law prohibits the confining of any pig during pregnancy. • It’s against the law in some parts of Kansas to kick a vending machine that ate your money. The full law protects parking meters, public telephones, vending machines and other devices that handle accepting and dispensing money.

BOOK ‘EM! (continued): • Shhhhh! It’s against the law to whisper in church or otherwise disrupt a group met for religious worship in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. On the same note, anyone who disturbs a church service may be arrested, even by a private citizen in the state of Mississippi. Punishment for disturbing a service can include either a $500 fine or up to six months imprisonment. • Galesburg, Illinois law prohibits citizens from keeping any animal that troubles neighbors by being loud, smelly or otherwise disturbing.

• Many states, including Arkansas, define the term “dumb animal” as including every living creature - puts a new perspective on that annoying neighbor, doesn’t it? • Tattooing was banned in Oklahoma until 2006 and Oklahoma was reportedly the last state to uphold such a ban. However, eyeball tattooing, a rather new technique, is illegal in Oklahoma and several other states around the U.S.

• It’s against the law for taxi drivers to play music for their passengers in Finland. Apparently, this is considered copyright infringement, as a taxi driver is providing a service for a fee. Therefore, copyrighted music cannot be included in that service. Keep that in mind if you ever hop a ride in a Finland. Your driver isn’t being rude, he’s just obeying the law! • China still has it’s one child per family law, but did you know that it only applies to those couples living in urban areas? • It is rumored that it is still illegal to call a pig Napoleon in France. We imagine the emperor himself had something to do with this law.

TIDBITS ALL OVER THE WORLD:
Back to South America this week as visit the Republica Federativa do Brasil - get ready to do the samba as we pack our bags and head to Brazil! • Did you know that Brazil is not only the fifth largest country in the world by land area, it is also the fifth most populous country in the world? Not only that, but Brazil takes up over half the landmass of South America alone and shares a border with every other country in South America except for Ecuador and Chile! When compared to the U.S. or Canada, it is just slightly smaller in size. • Speaking of large, Brazil is so big that it is divided into four times zones! • Brazil’s motto is Ordem e Progresso - this is Portuguese for Order and Progress. Brazilians mainly speak Portuguese, though there are some native dialects still used through the country. • Brazil was a colony of Portugal for 322 years! It was founded in 1500 and gained its independence from Portugal on September 7, 1822. Even though Portugal didn’t recognize Brazil’s independence until 1825, Brazilians still celebrate their independence every year on September 7th. • Voting is voluntary from the ages of sixteen to eighteen years old. However, once you turn eighteen, voting is compulsory every single year until you turn seventy. • What do you call the currency in Brazil? That would be the real. • A brazil nut tree can reach 100-150 ft (30-35 m) and is very long lived - it can reach up to and over 500 years old! The actual nuts are found inside a large, coconut-eqsue fruit. The Brazil nuts are arranged inside like slices of an orange, making the brazil nut technically a seed, not a nut at all! • Brazil, a country know for its football (or soccer to some of us) has won the FIFA World Cup a record five times. Though they have only hosted once, back in 1950, they are scheduled to host again in 2014. • World famous Rio de Janeiro is a popular destination in Brazil. It is located on the Guanabara Bay, which was first discovered on January 1, 1502. Portuguese explorer Gaspar de Lemos originally thought the bay was a river and named it the River of January - or Rio de Janeiro! • Popularly nicknamed Rio, the hot spot was also the capital of Brazil from 1763 until its independence in 1822. • Copacabana is a borough of and a beach in Rio de Janeiro. The song by Barry Manilow, however, is not about the beach, but rather a hot New York City night club named after the Brazilian hot spot. ...at the Copa- Copacabana

the hottest spot north of Havana. • “The Girl from Ipanema” was written in 1962 by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes. As the story goes, Jobim and Moraes would frequent the Veloso cafe in Ipanema, a neighborhood and beach also located in Rio de Janeiro. Everyday they would see a beautiful girl walking to the beach. The real-life girl from Ipanema is Helô Pinheiro. The song won the 1965 Grammy for Record of the Year. The actual word ipanema means “bad water” in the Tupi language, a native language of South America. • Did you know that the musical genre samba, originated in Brazil? • Also with origins in Brazil is the Afro-Brazilian art form capoeira, which combines martial arts, music and dance.
• “I keep a soft-sided cooler in the backseat of my car between my children’s car seats. It mostly keeps little items accessible to both kids, but we have used it to contain wet trash and to keep snacks cold. We also used it to keep restaurant leftovers cool (we asked for a glass of ice to go) while we ran into one more store before heading home one night.” -- P.W. in Missouri • “I have always added pureed and finely diced vegetables to my meatloaf to add moisture to the meat and to sneak the veggies in on the kids. As our children have grown and left home, we find it’s harder to keep an array of veggies in the house before they go bad. I now purchase a variety of baby-food jars to add to dishes. They keep well, are easy to use and offer additive-free nutrition. Who says you have to have a baby to buy baby food?” -T.C. in Pennsylvania • Keep a mixing bowl in place by setting it on a damp washcloth or dishtowel on the kitchen counter. No more slip and slide, and the cloth is ready to wipe up any spills. • “Whenever a T-shirt or other article of clothing wears out, I cut it into small pieces for rags. I use them for cleaning, etc. To store them, I push clean ones into an empty tissue box. I can easily get one when I need it, and afterward it can either be thrown away or put in the wash.” -- S.M., via e-mail • Go Green Tip: It’s smart to stay hydrated, and toting around a bottle of water can be a good reminder to sip throughout the day, but oh, all those plastic bottles in the landfills. It’s safer and better for the environment to get a refillable bottle. Look for stainless-steel or aluminum models. If it’s plastic you’re after, find ones that are BPA-free.

No matter who you are or where you live, you should always start your day with a well-rounded and nutritious breakfast! What’s so great abou breakfast, you say? Keep reading to find out! • Not only does breakfast provide energy, those who eat breakfast have been shown to have better concentration and productivity. Eating breakfast has also been linked with helping reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol. •Did you know that the protein of cooked eggs is more easily digestible and absorbable by humans than that of raw eggs? Speaking of eggs, there are tons of ways to cook eggs. Some people like their eggs scrambled, some like them fried, boiled or poached. Eggs as part of the North American breakfast meal most likely came from the United Kingdom and Ireland, where they are also part of the traditional breakfast meal. • Speaking of the United Kingdom - have you ever had a crumpet? Just what is a crumpet exactly? Crumpets are a circular English breakfast food made of flour and yeast - they look like a fat, small, thick pancake. They are usually eaten with butter or a topping. • Bubble and squeak is another traditional English breakfast food. It is made by shallow-frying the leftover mashed potatoes and other vegetables from the meal the night before. Rumor has it that the name “bubble and squeak” came from the sound the food made while cooking. • Pancakes are a food that also originated in Europe, though there are similar items around the world. In parts of Asia, pancake-like items are eaten as a snack. A Chinese variant is filled with a sweet layer of sugar, butter and ground peanuts. • Crêpes are a national dish of France and another breakfast favorite. They are cooked similarly to pancakes, but are generally thinner and crispier. They are often served with a filling, varying from vegetables to eggs, sweat creams to spreads. • Did you know that waffles and waffle-irons originated in Europe and have been around since the Middle Ages? • The word bacon is an Old French word which comes from an old Germanic word bacho, which means ‘ham.’ • You might have guessed, but did you know that orange juice is the official beverage of the state of Florida? Florida’s legislature designated the breakfast favorite as the official state beverage back in 1967. • If you aren’t a Southerner but have ever visited The South, you might have found yourself asking - just what are grits? And how are you supposed to eat them? Southern folk will answer that question simply - with butter and salt... and if you’re feeling frisky, try a little cheese! Some who live in the Northeast might suggest you add butter and sugar instead, but any Southerner will tell you that’s just plain wrong! • And just what are they? Grits are actually coarsely ground corn. Grits are made in the process of grinding corn meal. The finer product is the meal, whereas the leftover coarse material are the grits. • It’s only fitting that the World Grits Festival is held deep in the balm of South Carolina. It has been held annually in St. George, South Carolina since 1986. The next festival is scheduled for April 16-18, 2010. • Did you know that the German word strudel means ‘whirlpool’?

Pass the Chocolate! Last year, medical researchers said dark chocolate was good for lowering blood pressure. It’s the antioxidants that do the trick, they determined, by increasing nitric oxide and opening blood vessels. Now there’s even better news: Chocolate can reduce the risk of dying from cardiac problems, according to an article in the Journal of Internal Medicine. Researchers in Sweden studied men and women between the ages of 45 and 70 years old, tracking them for eight years after they had a heart attack, with special emphasis on their diet -- and how much chocolate they consumed. Both men and women had the good results. Specifically, chocolate can cut the risk of dying from heart problems by almost 70 percent if you eat chocolate regularly. Snacking on chocolate only once a week can cut the risk in half. Eating chocolate only now and then still has an effect and cuts the risk by 27 percent. There are cautions, of course. Eating too much of anything, especially sweets, can lead to weight problems. And if you have another condition such as diabetes, you’ll have to skip the chocolate. If chocolate is on the list of foods you must avoid, there are other ways you can get beneficial antioxidants in your diet. A U.S. Department of Agriculture study lists foods having the highest levels of antioxidants: small red beans, blueberries (wild and cultivated), kidney beans, cranberries, artichokes, blackberries, prunes, raspberries, strawberries, apples (including Red Delicious, Granny Smith and Gala), Russet potatoes and plums. If you can’t eat chocolate, ask your doctor about incorporating the above foods into your diet, and get advice about the quantities. If you’re one of the lucky one who can eat dark chocolate, ask about that, too!

Save on Auto Insurance Before your next auto insurance renewal date, check rates from competing insurance companies. All policies aren’t the same, and you could save hundreds of dollars per year. To get your best possible rates: • Consider bundling your homeowners insurance with your auto. You could get a lower rate for the additional business. At the same time, if you have a bundled policy and only want to change one of them, the remaining policy premium could go up. • Be sure you get all your discounts. Passenger and sidecurtain air bags, auto club membership, low annual mileage, professional group affiliation and other considerations can net you a lower rate. Even the type of job you have can help, if you’re in certain occupations. Ask if you’d get a discount for taking a defensive-driving course. • Try to pay the whole period’s premium, usually six months. Most companies will hit you with extra charges for making monthly payments. • Consider a larger deductible. If the premium difference between $500 and $1,000 deductibles is considerable, put away the extra $500 and go with the larger deductible. But beware ever filing a small claim. Your rates will go up. • Keep your credit scores high. It used to be that insurers would check the year and make of the vehicle, your age and gender, your driving history and your ZIP code to determine your auto insurance premiums. Nowadays they also check your credit worthiness. They’re not looking for whether you can pay the premiums -- they want to know about the rest of your life. Insurance companies believe that if you have a low credit score, you’re more likely to file a claim. Additionally, if you have longstanding accounts, you’ll be considered more stable and less likely to file claims. • Unless the savings are good, stay with the same company. That shows stability on your part, and you could get discounts for renewal. Call to ask before you cancel your current policy. Before you take the lowest-cost policy, however, check out the company’s reputation. The J.D. Powers Web site rates auto insurance providers in a number of categories. See www.jdpower. com for ratings. When you get the policy, read it. Be sure it covers what you signed up for, and at the price you were told.
