by Janet Spencer About 95% of all households report that at least one family member had dined out in the last month. Come along with Tidbits as we eat out! THE RESTAURANT IS BORN • Until the mid-1700s there were no recognizable restaurants as such. There were inns, where lodgers were fed whatever was in the stew pot that night, and there were taverns where limited food played second fiddle to the drink, and there were places called “ordinaries” where a fixed menu was available at a fixed time for a fixed price. • In France, development of the restaurant was stymied by licensing laws. Only stewmakers were licensed to sell stew; only bakers were licensed to sell baked goods; only soupmakers were licensed to sell soup. • In 1765 a soupmaker named Boulanger decided to challenge the licensing system, so he offered his customers lamb’s feet in white sauce. The stewmakers took him to court. • The judge, however, decided that since lamb’s feet were not stewed meat, Boulanger was not breaking any laws. This was the first inroad into the world of restaurants. Boulanger hung a sign above his shop that read in French “Come to me all whose stomachs cry out and I shall restore you.” The French word for restore is “restaurabo” and gave us the word restaurant. FAST FACTS • August is the busiest month of the year for America’s restaurants. A typical family of four will spend more than $200 in various eating establishments in August. • The United States now has over 250,000 restaurants, of which more than a third are franchises. The franchises account for more than 40% of all the income for restaurants. Turn to page 2 for more!

Indoor Potty Pad DEAR PAW’S CORNER: Bell is a 7-year-old Yorkie/Pomeranian mix. She has a lot of energy and is fairly well housebroken. However, she still has occasional accidents when she is left alone for long periods of time. We’ve tried using training pads. But several times, she shredded them. So, we got her a Potty Patch, but have not had much luck. We’ve tried setting the patch by the back door that we use to let her out. We’ve also tried putting the patch by the front door where she has her accidents. But in either place, she doesn’t go on the patch. What can we do to train/encourage her to use it? -- Potty Trainer in Oceola, Mich.

DEAR POTTY TRAINER: Opinions about potty pads are mixed. Some owners think they’re a terrible idea because they teach the dog that it’s OK to “go” anywhere in the house. Others say they’re a lifesaver. I think the success of the pad depends on both the dog and the owner. Some dogs figure it out really quickly; others need more encouragement from their owners. However, every dog is different. You might need to dedicate several days at home to training Bell. Unfortunately, I don’t have a lot of column space to detail this process, but there are a number of videos online for this and similar brands. Good luck, and don’t give up!

• Americans are dining out even more often than at any previous time in our history. A survey showed that 99.4% of people who were under 30 years old typically eat out about once a week. Of the over 65 group, 87.9% had eaten out in the previous week. The survey also showed that 39.7% of all meals eaten away from home were served by a fast food outlet while only 6% of the meals were consumed at full service restaurants. • Another survey concluded that 56% of adults eat out at a sit-down restaurant at least once a week. 7% of people eat out almost daily • Each American eats almost 30 lbs. (13 kg) of hamburgers each year. McDonalds, the single largest chain of restaurants in the world, serves up 2,250 head of cattle per day. McDonalds has surpassed the Army as the biggest supplier of meals as well as the biggest employer of young people. • The following dishes are the most frequently ordered by people dining out: chicken; roast beef; spaghetti; turkey; ham; shrimp; stew; meatloaf; fish; macaroni & cheese. YOU BE THE JUDGE • When a food critic reviewed a restaurant, he used phrases like “a ghastly concoction” and “pretentious failures” and “green plague” and “yellow death.” The restaurant owner sued for $2 million in damages claiming that the reviewer ruined his reputation and humiliated him. If you were the judge, how would you rule? The courts said the review was “degrading, malicious, and unprovoked” but that it still expressed the writer’s opinion which was protected by the Constitution. UNUSUAL RESTAURANTS • A restaurant in Washington, D.C. opened in 1992, specializing in insect dishes. They served mealworm wontons, cricket meatloaf, candied mealworm, and cricket popcorn. Chef Mark Nevin claimed he went through some 20,000 mealworms and 8,000 crickets every two weeks. All of his dishes contained insects that had been ground into flour or paste and no recognizable bugs or bug parts showed up in the fare. • George Pappavlahodimitrakopoulous owned a restaurant in Lansing, Michigan in 1961. He said he’d give a free meal to anyone who could pronounce his name correctly. • When Gordon and Jasmine Geisbrecht decided to open a new restaurant in Winnipeg in 1986, they wanted to make it really different. They decided to make toilets the theme of the restaurant. Called “The Outhouse,” toilet bowls were placed here and there in the decorating scheme, and menus featured a toilet bowl logo. Ironically enough, health inspectors suspended their license when it was found that their restroom facilities were inadequate. ANTICS & ANECDOTES • A homeless man paying for his meal in Salt Lake City apologized for not tipping, saying, “I’m going to go rob a bank and I’ll be back.” He walked across the street, relieved First Interstate Bank of $1,200, and was arrested at the restaurant after leaving a $2 tip. • At the New House Hotel in Wales, Chef Albert Grabham decided to hide the restaurant’s New Year’s Eve earnings in the oven. He forgot about it until he lit the oven to prepare New Year’s Day lunch. • Timothy George was a busboy at a restaurant in California in 1982. When a customer was robbed in a restroom, Tim chased and captured the mugger, retrieving the stolen items. When he returned work, he was fired. Why? For leaving work… and for fighting. • In 1964, Lady Bird Johnson, the wife of President Johnson, was traveling from Cleveland to Washington, DC. Her secretary called ahead to a Howard Johnson’s restaurant to make reservations for Mrs. Johnson and her party. After they had eaten and left, a reporter interviewed the waitress. “How did it feel to serve Mrs. Johnson?” “I was pretty nervous,” replied the waitress. “Have you ever met a first lady before?” inquired the reporter. “First Lady?” cried the waitress. “That was Mrs. Lyndon Johnson? I thought it was Mrs. Howard Johnson!” • Entertainer George Jessel once arrived for dinner at the prestigious Stork Club with the talented black actress Lena Horne as his companion. The Club had a “whites only” policy and the restaurant owner pretended that all the tables were filled. “Who made the reservations?” he asked as he looked over the reservation book. George Jessel leaned forward and said, “Abraham Lincoln!” The couple was seated. • Musician Gerald Berners was listening to a high-toned woman of his acquaintance as she complained about a local restaurant. She was upset because the head waiter had refused to seat her and her husband immediately. “Why,” she exclaimed, “We had to tell him who we were!” Gerald inquired politely, “And who were you?” • Dining with friends at a fancy restaurant, Dorothy Parker rose and excused herself saying, “Excuse me, I have to go to the bathroom.” She paused a moment, then added, “I really have to use the telephone, but I’m too embarrassed to say so.”

All About Us The results of the annual “United States of Aging Survey” are in, and we’re doing well! The National Council on Aging survey, taken by phone calls to 4,000 seniors earlier this year, focused on those of us age 60 and older, with subgroups of older seniors (age 80 and over), low-income seniors and those with chronic health conditions. Here are some of the results: --In 2012, only 42 percent of seniors said that their lives for the previous year had been “normal.” In 2013, that number jumped to 57 percent. --A whopping 84 percent of us have at least one chronic medical condition, but the same 84 percent say it’s not difficult to continue independently with regular activities. However, with low-income seniors, 75 percent of those with one or more chronic conditions say they have at least one barrier to managing their health condition. When it comes to finances, 66 percent of us say it’s “easy” or “somewhat easy” to get by with monthly expenses. Less than 20 percent have had to reduce regular spending. Still, more than half of us are worried whether savings and income will last the rest of our lives. As to the future, while many seniors say the community is responsive to their needs, only half think their community is doing enough for the future needs of seniors. Most of us are wired up! We use cellphones (75 percent), computers (68 percent) and the Internet (65 percent). High-tech seniors want to stay in touch with family and friends (87 percent), and keep up with the world, learn new things and stay mentally sharp in equal numbers. Half of those who don’t use new technology cite cost as the reason. If you’d like to review the study, go online to www.ncoa. org and search for “Aging Survey 2013.”

All Heartburn Meds Have Side Effects DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Is it true that those of us who have to take Prilosec every day are in danger of getting a bone fracture? Should we consider stopping it? -- Anon. ANSWER: We need to give readers a clue to what we’re talking about. The subject is GERD, gastroesophageal reflux disease, something most call “heartburn.” It’s the eruption of stomach acid and digestive juices into the esophagus, a place not built to withstand those powerful fluids. Proton-pump inhibitors are the most effective suppressants of acid production. There are eight: Prilosec (omeprazole), Nexium (esomeprazole), Prevacid (lansoprazole), Dexilant (dexlansoprazole), Protonix (pantoprazole) and Aciphex (rabeprazole). These medicines have made life livable for people who don’t respond to other strategies or medicines for heartburn control. All effective medicines have side effects. A side effect of proton-pump inhibitors is weakening of the hip bone with possible fracture of it. It’s not a common occurrence. When it happens, it happens to those who have taken high doses of these medicines for five to seven years. As a preventive step, take a proton-pump inhibitor at the lowest dose that controls symptoms and for the shortest time possible. You can resume taking it if and when heartburn returns. You also can try acid suppressants that don’t have this side effect: Tums, Rolaids and Maalox. Don’t eat foods that cause you to have heartburn. Frequent offenders are excessive amounts of caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, peppermint, fatty foods, citrus fruits and tomatoes. Or try a different family of acid suppressants. Zantac (ranitidine), Pepcid (famotidine) and Tagamet (cimetidine) are examples. I wouldn’t use the unapproved treatment mentioned in the letter you sent. It appears that its distributor is playing on exaggerated fear. The booklet on heartburn explains this illness and its treatment in detail. Readers can order a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue -- No. 501W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery.

The good news for parents of young college students is that, thanks to the Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility and Disclosure Act of 2009, anyone under age 21 applying for a credit card has to have a co-signer or show they are able independently to pay the debt. According to The National Foundation for Credit Counseling, establishing credit while in college can go one of two ways: It can be helpful in life after college ... or, if the credit has been abused, the young graduate will have problems getting apartment leases, buying a vehicle or even trying to find a job. The NFCC’s newest Financial Literacy Survey shows that 33 percent of people learned about finances at home, which is the best place to learn ... unless the parent had poor financial habits. Only 5 percent learned about money and credit at school, as courses on financial management aren’t generally included in the curriculum. The NFCC has created a list of helpful tips for college students (or anyone just starting with credit): --Start slowly. Don’t apply for more credit than is needed. --Avoid the temptations that can come with a line of credit. Remember, it’s money you have to pay back. --Don’t charge more than can be paid off at the end of the month. --Do research before applying for a card. Investigate the interest rate, associated fees, credit limits and terms. Don’t be swayed by points or rewards that you’ll never cash in because so many are required before redemption. --Protect the card. Be aware of where you keep it and who’s around when you’re making a purchase. Identity theft is big business. --Never let others use your card, even friends you trust. They might not be as cautious as you, and you’re responsible for the purchase made. A hint for beginners: Wrap the new credit card in a piece of paper where each purchase is written down. Little purchases easily can be forgotten until the bill comes at the end of the month, but they add up. Seeing them written down is a reminder of how much will be due. Another method is to deduct the amount charged from the checking account register to make sure that money will be available at the end of the month. For those who want free and confidential financial advice, contact NFCC online at www.nfcc.org or call them at (800) 388-2227.

Pilot Program to Speed Claims Veterans with a claim lost in the pile at the Department of Veterans Affairs will be interested in a pilot program about to be launched. The American Bar Association and Legal Services Corporation are joining with the VA to help veterans get faster decisions on their claims -- for free. This pro bono program will provide attorneys to unrepresented veterans who need help with portions of their claims that require evidence to be gathered. According to a VA news release, the development stage of assembling a claim can be the longest part, taking more than 200 days. The first steps in the pilot program will open at the Regional Offices in St. Petersburg, Fla., and Chicago. Veterans at other locations also might be included if circumstances warrant it. The plan is for the program to spread quickly across the country. It appears, however, that veterans can’t ask to be included. The VA will select claims for the program that can benefit from the legal intervention. Those veterans will get a letter asking if they’d like to participate. The letter will list all the possible options for representation, such as Veteran Service Organizations -- and the free lawyers. Those veterans also will be told of a free hotline phone number to call to find legal representation. The attorneys will receive training, with the end goal of putting together complete “ready to approve” claims. Attorneys and veterans will be linked up based on location and complexity of the claim. Watch your mail for a letter from the VA if you live in the two pilot locations and have a claim in. This is just one of the steps the VA is taking to clear the claims backlog by 2015, and on the surface, it sounds good. Fingers crossed.

Decoupage Small Flowerpots With Kids Every busy mom I know longs for a place of her own, a retreat from the day-to-day flurry of activities. No wonder 42-year-old Alice Wu-Cardona, mom of three, was thrilled to build a studio behind her house in south San Francisco as a getaway where she could create her colorful stained-glass-window art in peace and quiet. It wasn’t too long after she settled into the space that 6-year-old Jaylyn asked if she could “do art” there, too. “All three of my children have different interests,” says Alice. “Twelve-year-old Jenna has a passion for dancing and spends 14 hours a week at a dance company, while 9-year-old Joella is an avid swimmer and reader. Then along came Jaylyn, who is drawn to anything creative. How could I say ‘no’ when she wanted to have a table where she could draw, paint and sculpt alongside me?” she said. Now mother and daughter share the studio. No sooner had Alice set up a wire line and clips from Ikea across the room to hang small samples of colored glass to see how light shines through than Jaylyn’s glitter-paint artwork was on display. “I admit they delight and inspire me,” said Alice. Jaylyn’s latest interest has been cut-and-paste projects. She attaches cutouts from magazines to small clay pots, then paints the rims. This kid version of decoupage is easy, fun and not too messy, according to her mom. Grow new interests in your kids with this easy craft. Here’s the stuff: --Clean clay flowerpot --Magazines, travel brochures, catalogs, seed packets, etc. --Household glue such as Elmer’s --Mod Podge (available at craft stores) --Acrylic paint --Paintbrush or painting sponge Here’s the fun: --Cut out small pieces of colorful paper images and designs. Glue to the pot to create a pleasing design or combination. Leave the rim plain. --Use a brush and apply Mod Podge over the cutouts. Let dry. --Paint the outside rim in a solid color or experiment with several colors to make crazy designs, swirls, stripes or spots. Let dry. --Fill with fresh potting soil. Plant a blooming begonia, chrysanthemum or herbs for a fall “windowsill garden.” Use an extra pot as a catchall for desk supplies, hair accessories, etc.

• In Greek, gastro means stomach and nomia means law: gastronomic = the law of the stomach. • In France, grourmet meant a groom for the horses. Later it came to mean any servant. Some servants were wine-tasters; some were connoisseurs of food. Eventually the word came to mean one who is well studied in fine foods— a gourmet. • The Middle Dutch word snacken meant to snap at a thing, such as a dog snaps at a morsel of food tossed its way. Today the English version of the word is snack. • The French word bancus meant little bench, such as one would sit on during a banquet. FOODS NAMED AFTER PEOPLE • Prince Charles Phillipe de Condé, grandnephew of Louis XIII, King of France in the 1600s, had a sweet tooth. He wouldn’t eat anything that wasn’t sweet. A chef made up a glaze made of sugar, egg whites, and nuts. Poured over meats and vegetables, Prince Condé finally ate stuff that was good for him. The glaze was named after Condé, and the word came to mean anything sweet: candy. • Samuel Benedict was a famous playboy. After a night of partying in 1894, he went into the kitchens at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York and made himself breakfast. It consisted of two poached eggs on top of bacon on top of buttered toast with Hollandaise sauce poured over all. The chef was so impressed that the Waldorf added it to the menu and named it after the inventor: eggs benedict. • Ancel Keys worked at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. He invented a nutritious food that soldiers in the field could eat. It was named after the man who invented it: K-rations. EATING YOUR WORDS In French, hors means outside and oeuvres means the works: literally ‘apart from the main work.’ The Latin word salsus meaning salted gives us our salad. Cole slaw is a salad which comes from the Dutch terms koolsa meaning cabbage, and sla meaning salad. The French word for head, caboch, gave us our cabbage. Spago is the Italian word for little cord: spaghetti. The cantaloupe was first grown in Cantalupo, Italy, and brussels sprouts come from Brussels, Belgium. Gelatin, Jello, and jelly come from the Latin word gelo meaning to congeal. Desservir is French for clear away, and that’s what you do before dessert is served. If you have some tutti-frutti for dessert, you’re eating an Italian word meaning ‘all fruits.’ If you have some chocolate, you’ll be using a Mexican-Indian work for bitter water, chocolatl. And if your family is giving you heat over the number of calories you’re consuming, well, calorie is Latin for heat. FAST FACTS • Peanuts are known as goobers because the African word for peanut is nguba. • The old French word moisseron was mispronounced by the English and became mushroom. • The German word knappen means ‘to eat’ and a knappensack was a sack holding things to eat: a knapsack. • The Peruvian word charqui meant meat that had been cut in strips and hung out to dry. Today we call it jerky. • In Old English, grappe meant a cluster of fruit growing together, and grape was the hook that they were gathered with. Today, grape means the fruit itself, and grapple means struggling with a problem much as a harvester struggles with a hook.

Use Science to Get Kids to Eat Veggies Parents often ask me for suggestions about ways to get their children to eat their vegetables. I’ve always believed that teaching children from an early age about the importance of nutrition is one of the best ways to get them to eat healthy as adults. In a new paper in Psychological Science, Sarah Gripshover and Ellen Markman of Stanford University have shown that scientists can help overcome the child-vegetable repulsive principle. Remarkably, the scientists in question are the children themselves. It turns out that, by giving preschoolers a new theory of nutrition, you can get them to eat more vegetables. Preschoolers already have some of the elements of an intuitive theory of biology. They understand that invisible germs can make you sick and that eating helps make you healthy, even if they don’t get all the details. The more information that they have about nutrition, the better their food choices will be. The Stanford researchers got teachers to read 4- and 5-year-olds a

series of story books for several weeks. The stories gave the children a more detailed but still accessible theory of nutrition. They explained that food is made up of different invisible parts, the equivalent of nutrients; that when you eat, your body breaks up the food into those parts; and that different kinds of food have different invisible parts. They also explained that your body needs different nutrients to do different things, so that to function well you need to take in a lot of different nutrients. Under controlled conditions, the teachers read children similar stories based on the current U.S. Department of Agriculture website for healthy nutrition. These stories also talked about healthy eating and encouraged it. But they didn’t provide any causal framework to explain how eating works or why you should eat better. The researchers then asked children questions to test whether they had acquired a deeper understanding of nutrition. And at snack time they offered the children vegetables as well as fruit, cheese and crackers. The children who had heard the theoretical stories understood the concepts better. More strikingly, they also were more likely to pick the vegetables at snack time. You can find age-appropriate books about healthy eating in your local library, and tips for teaching children about nutrition online. Taking your children to the grocery store and letting them help you in the kitchen also are two great ways to teach children healthy habits and skills. Involve your children in the cooking process and incorporate vegetables into a family recipe with these easy-to-make Barbeque Chicken Burgers. You can pick up a rotisserie chicken or shred a few pieces of leftover baked or fried chicken (with the skin removed) and mix it with the rest of the ingredients. This recipe also freezes well, so you can make “fast food” at home. BARBEQUE CHICKEN BURGERS 2 to 2-1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken 1 1/2 cups barbeque sauce 1/2 tablespoon chili powder 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 1 tablespoon honey mustard (or 1 tablespoon mustard plus 1/4 teaspoon honey) 1 1/2 cups shredded coleslaw mix

4 small whole-wheat sandwich buns Lettuce, pickles, onions (optional) 1. Combine chicken, barbecue sauce, chili powder, Worcestershire sauce and honey mustard in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 5 minutes. Stir in the coleslaw mix. 2. Top the bun with equal portions of chicken mixture, and lettuce, pickles and onions, if desired.

Steakhouse Salad Use your backyard grill to serve up a classic steakhouse salad featuring grilled onions, blue cheese and crisp iceberg lettuce. 2 medium sweet onions, cut into 1/4-inch thick slices 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves, divided Grilled Flank Steak 2 beefsteak tomatoes, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices 1 head (small) iceberg lettuce, cut into wedges 2 ounces blue cheese 1/4 cup Classic Vinaigrette 1. In medium bowl, combine onions, vegetable oil and 1/2 teaspoon thyme leaves. Gently toss to coat, keeping onion slices intact. Place alongside Grilled Flank Steak on grill. 2. Meanwhile, in same bowl, combine tomatoes, 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and 1/2 teaspoon thyme leaves. Gently toss to coat. Place on grill with onions. Cook vegetables 10 minutes or until browned and tender, turning once. 3. Arrange onions and tomatoes in alternating slices on 4 serving plates. Cut steak into thin slices against grain. Divide among plates along with lettuce. Crumble blue cheese over plates and drizzle with Classic Vinaigrette. Serves 4. ¥ Each serving: About 455 calories, 32g total fat (9g saturated), 69mg cholesterol, 490mg sodium, 15g total carbs, 4g dietary fiber, 28g protein.

Awaiting the Call Read: James 4:13–5:20 You also, be patient. (v. 8)

with one another. The final call builds the people up with instructions to pray, to sing, to visit those in need, and to commit everything to the Lord in prayer by faith.

When most of us think about sports our focus is on the action, but we forget there’s a lot of sitting around and waiting. Rookies anticipate the call of their agents on draft day. A relief pitcher warms up in the bullpen expecting the signal to send him to the mound to get out of a late inning jam. The anxious all-star wonders if he’ll be called to move as the trade deadline looms. The words used by James to Christians could also calm these athletes: “Be patient.”

The encouragement to wait patiently for the second “call” of the Lord remains in effect today. We wait with hope and perseverance, not laziness and boredom. Like athletes whose chance to shine only occurs when the call does come, so too will we experience true fulfillment when Christ comes again. May we be patient, with our hearts established in love for others, our minds steadfast like Job, and our focus entirely on the coming Christ.

The anxiousness that James speaks to in the closing verses of this book reveal that even if his audience is struggling with things of the world,

Prayer: Come, Lord Jesus!

their faith has them wired for the second coming of Christ. James coaxes them to live in the present but also gives them some ways to keep busy

It is certainly interesting, and somehow puzzling, what age can do to the mind and body after eight, plus, decades of life. The bones and joints are typically worn and the thoughts are often far less sharp than they once were. Memories may fade but, then again, they can remain as crisp as they were 60 years ago - like it happened yesterday. You may delight every day in “having all your teeth” or being the only lady in your group who still holds a valid driver’s license. Whatever the case may be, this particular group of 10 ladies is very special and it takes a delightful, attentive, upbeat staff to attend to their needs and wishes. I thank God for all of the wonderful, more youthful caretakers in this world who provide assistance to the most deserving. Be blessed, Audrey
