Free In Home Consultation

by Janet Spencer

• 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.

COINCIDENCE (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.

• 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 long 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.

ARCTIC EXPLORERS

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,

Q: My Shiba Inu seems to have chronically clogged anal glands. I’ve had dogs my entire life, but I’ve never seen so much licking of the butt. I took my dog to the veterinarian for manual extraction but it didn’t help. The veterinarian suggested surgery. What do you think? - S.L., Cyberspace A: “This is a very common problem,” notes Chicago veterinarian Dr. Sheldon Rubin. What’s likely occurred is that the anal sacs have become impacted. The sacs are supposed to empty with each bowel movement. However, in some individual dogs this doesn’t happen or they don’t fully empty. Eventually, they may become impacted. Sometimes the sacs become infected. “We express (empty) them, and then flush them with antibiotics,” Rubin says. “When there is a chronic problem, we also look at the possible effects of allergies, even the possibility of cancer, particularly in older dogs.” Surgical removal of the anal sacs is not a procedure to be taken likely. One potential complication might leave your dog incontinent. If you do ultimately opt for surgery, Rubin suggests you search for a surgeon with lots of experience at this procedure.

“LES MISERABLES”: If you’ve dreamed a dream of owning the screen version of the legendary stage musical based on Victor Hugo’s classic, the time has come. Anne Hathaway has earned numerous awards as the tragic Fantine, whose effect on Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman) is profound as he tries to evade perpetually vengeful Inspector Javert (Russell Crowe). Much of the film’s impact comes from director Tom Hooper’s (“The King’s Speech”) decision to have the actors sing live to film. Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen and Samantha Barks (who also had the role of Eponine on the London stage) are featured as well. DVD extras: three “making-of ” documentaries; audio commentary by Hooper. *** Video View

DVD Reviews

“ZERO DARK THIRTY”: A subject of controversy during its theatrical run, this reunion of the Oscar-winning “Hurt Locker” team of director Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal is an engrossing, often exciting dramatization of the hunt for Osama bin Laden. Jessica Chastain’s star rises higher with her intense performance as a CIA analyst who pursues her belief of the terrorist leader’s location - with her hunch ultimately prompting one of modern history’s most famous raids. The fine cast also includes Jason Clarke, Joel Edgerton, Kyle Chandler and Chris Pratt. DVD extras: four “making-of ” documentaries. *** “THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY”: After his huge success with the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, director Peter Jackson returns to writer J.R.R. Tolkien’s territory with this epic-sized start to a three-film prequel. Martin Freeman plays Bilbo Baggins, swept into a quest by dwarves to help reclaim their turf. The tale also marks Bilbo’s first meeting with Gollum, played again by Andy Serkis. Other “Lord of the Rings” returnees include Elijah Wood, Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving, Ian Holm and Christopher Lee ... and the cast also features Benedict Cumberbatch, the television “Sherlock” to Freeman’s Dr. Watson. DVD extras: production videos. *** “THIS IS 40”: They had supporting roles in “Knocked Up,” but Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann get center stage as they reprise the characters in writer-director Judd Apatow’s amusing comedy about reaching midllfe. The couple aren’t entirely happy about the situation, given the complications posed by their careers and their children. Jason Segel also returns from the first film in a cast that includes Melissa McCarthy, Megan Fox, John Lithgow, Albert Brooks and Lena Dunham (“Girls”). DVD extras: audio commentary by Apatow; deleted scenes; outtakes; music by Graham Parker and the Rumour, and Ryan Adams. *** “RUST AND BONE”: A winner of many awards (including an Oscar) for “La Vie en Rose,” Marion Cotillard again delivers strong work in this French drama about an unlikely relationship. Her character, who trains marine life, initially rejects the interest of a bouncer (Matthias Schoenaerts) ... but an accident draws them together. Armand Verdure is notable as the young son the man also is just getting to know. DVD extras: “making-of ” documentary; audio commentary by director and co-screenwriter Jacques Audiard and co-screenwriter Thomas Bidegain; deleted scenes; red carpet footage. ***

Canadian Tid-bits

▶ In the town of Churchill, Manitoba, there are so many polar bears hanging out in the region during the autumn months that wildlife officials have set up a ‘polar bear jail.’ Nuisance adolescent bears are incarcerated to keep them out of trouble. When Hudson Bay freezes over, the bears are released to go on their way. ▶ Canada has a longer coastline than any other country in the world, at 202,080 km (125,570 miles). That’s equal to 25 times the circumference of the earth. ▶ A beaver will cut down an average of 200 trees per year. Beaver teeth are orange because the enamel on the front of the teeth contains iron, making it tough. The enamel on the back of the teeth does not contain iron, making it softer. As the beaver chews, the edge of the teeth where the hard part meets the softer part is honed to a chisel point. ▶ On some islands in the Arctic regions the permafrost layer is up to 700 m (3,000 ft) thick. ▶ What’s the biggest bird in Canada? Depends on how you measure. Whooping cranes are tallest at 2 m (6 ft); trumpeter swans are the heaviest, weighing 12 kg (26 lb); and American white pelicans have the biggest wingspan, up to 3 m (ten feet).

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.
