The Neatest Little Paper Ever Read!®

Issue 864 - March 24, 2014

CAT AND MOUSE by Patricia L. Cook

Whether you are dog tired (very tired), living a dog’s life (difficult life), or so busy you feel like you are chasing your own tail (working hard but not seeing progress), this Tidbits should give you a reason to go hog wild (become highly enthusiastic)!

• An idiom is “a set expression of two or more words that means something other than the literal meanings of its individual words.” The idioms we’ll explore in this Tidbits are those that deal with animals. • Watch these pages like a hawk (carefully) to see if you recognize these sayings. You may find that many are very familiar to you. You may also find some that are complete hogwash (nonsense). In trying not to beat a dead horse (engage in pointless and repetitive discussion), you may want to read these at a snail’s pace (slowly) so that you can catch the meaning of each sentence! • An expression that seems to have disappeared or just never caught on with current generations is “I’ll swan” or “I’ll swanee!” Mostly used in the south, this is an expression of surprise probably as a replacement for “I swear” or a curse word. If you’ve never heard this one you probably think it is for the birds (not for you.)! After all, birds of a feather flock together, (people associate with turn the page fornext more! similar folks)!

CAT AND MOUSE (continued): • Many expressions are ingrained in our vocabulary when we are only knee high to a grasshopper (very small.) Some are kept out of earshot of children because they may not be appropriate for young ears! (Those won’t be in Tidbits!) • While little children may be cute as a bug’s ear (the smaller they come, the cuter they are), some are bullheaded (stubborn) and make a beeline (go toward) to trouble. After all, when the cat’s away, the mice will play (people misbehaving without supervision).

• Sometimes supervision is in the hands of the biggest frog in the pond (most important person in a group), while at other times it may be given to the leader who is as calm as a toad in the sun (calm and content). Either way, if there is conflict, it may be necessary to separate the sheep from the goats (distinguish the good from the bad).

Contact Us for Complete System Installation

• When conflict arises, there are times when people act like animals. A dumb cluck (person acting stupid) may be pigheaded (stupidly stubborn) and try to find a scapegoat (innocent person who is blamed) when things go wrong.


• A bullheaded (obstinate) person may try to butt heads (to argue fiercely) with a sheepish (embarrassed) friend only to find that she will pull the wool over his eyes ( fool him). • It is easy to get fleeced (swindled) if you don’t pay attention to what is happening to you and just ignore obvious problems. If you make yourself a sitting duck (easy target) you may end up in a harebrained scheme (foolish plan). • It is much better to have all your ducks in a row (be organized), than to go down a rabbit hole (enter a fantasy world) when you need to make decisions. • Hold on if you think we are barking up the wrong tree (have the wrong idea), fantasy worlds can be fun and engaging. Just remember that it’s a dog-eat-dog world (there is a lot of competition in life) out there and you need to be careful not to be constantly chasing your own tail (working hard but not getting anything done)! • If organizing gives you a burr under your saddle (causes you to be irritated), remember that the early bird gets the worm (start early so that you have the best chance for success). • Seeing an opportunity to improve your life or your situation, sometimes requires walking on eggshells (being careful not to offend others) or a somewhat opposite situation; taking the bull by the horns (tackling the problem).

• You sure don’t need to be told that you are not the sharpest quill on the porcupine (not very smart) if you are having a hard time with an assignment. Most people realize when they struggle and have butterflies in their stomachs (feel nervous) when they have bitten off more than they can chew (taken on too hard or big a task).

• Speaking of chewing, when you are hungry as a bear (really hungry), it is usually best to take your time eating anyway. Don’t be silly and wolf down your food (eat too fast) or you may find yourself sick as a horse (very sick)! • Hold your horses (be patient) when you need to wait for your food, whether at your home, someone else’s home or a restaurant. Be a good egg (nice person) not a bad egg (bad person) and avoid fighting like cats and dogs (fierce argument). Don’t bite the hand that feeds you (harm someone who is helping you)! • Take the bull by the horns (face difficulty) when Continued on page 5

What Time Is It?

We all turned our clocks backwards one hour on recently to standard time. Which is the proper designation of the time we move our clocks forward, Daylight Saving Time or Daylight Savings Time? What month is it that we move our clocks forward one hour? Is daylight actually saved by moving the clock one hour in either direction? Name the state where Daylight Saving Time is observed in only a portion of the state. Name the two states that do not participate in Daylight Saving Time at all. Many fire departments suggest checking the battery in what common household appliance when you move your clocks? Why is it that countries near the equator do not bother with moving their clocks twice a year? Name the American inventor who thought of Daylight Saving Time? Before mechanical clocks, what did people use to measure time? What major industry forced the establishment of standard time in England, the USA, and Canada? What time of day/night does Daylight Saving Time actually begin: Midnight, 1 am, or 2 am? What department of government has jurisdiction over Daylight Saving Time in the USA? You’ve heard of Greenwich Mean Time. Where is Greenwich? Complete this sentence: Greenwich Mean (or Meridian) Time is the mean (average) time that the earth takes to rotate from ____________ to __________. Name the four US mainland time zones. If Monday was named after the moon and Sunday was named after the sun, what planet or Roman god was Saturday named after? On the Jewish calendar what day does Rosh Hashanah celebrate?

• Don’t be a fraidy cat (a coward) when it comes to trying new things. Carefully weigh the risks and wing it (improvise) as you are learning. If you get sent on a wild goose chase (to be sent searching for something that can’t be found), then learn from your search. • It is better to let the cat have your tongue (be quiet) than to pretend to be a fat cat (rich and powerful person) when you really have nothing to brag about. After all, the best laid plans of mice and men often go astray (even careful plans can go wrong). • Many times in our everyday lives the weather can be an influencing factor in our decision making. If it is raining cats and dogs outside (raining hard) then we are likely to be as happy as a clam (contended) staying at home reading a good book or watching a movie. If the sun is shining and it is nice and warm out, we are likely to go out to have a whale of a time (great enjoyment). • See you later, alligator (good-bye for now)! After while, crocodile (good-bye to you, too)! Tidbits will be back next week.

Andrew's murder is a mystery!


Jade has been known to mankind for some 7000 years, but in prehistoric times was known more for its toughness and was used for weapons and tools. As early as 3000 BC Scott McQueen jade was employed in China as a royal gem and has enjoyed a long history in the art and culture of the Chinese empire. Over the years the people of Asia have placed a greater importance on jade than any other culture. The ancient Mayas, Aztecs and Olmecs of Central America also valued jade – even more highly than gold. The Maoris of New Zealand continue to use jade in weapons and cult instruments, a practice that began in early times. In ancient Egypt jade was admired as the stone of love, inner peace, harmony and balance. Other religions and cultures have also deemed jade as a protecting force and good fortune. Today this gem is believed to be a symbol of goodness, beauty, justice, wisdom, compassion, and courage, not to mention, female-erotic! Jade’s subtle luster along with its naturally toughness may be why it has been so appreciated around the world and down through the centuries. It comes in many fine nuances of green, but also in shades of white, black, gray, yellow, orange and even in delicate violet tones.

• Celine Marie Claudette Dion was born on March 30, 1968, in the rural French Canadian town of Charlemagne, Quebec, about 30 miles (48 km) east of Montreal. Celine’s parents were the operators of a small club where the entire family performed on weekends. • Celine composed a French song, along with her mother and one of her brothers, when she was only twelve. When the demo tape with that song wound up in the hands of René Angélil, a personal manager, the course of Celine’s life was forever changed. • Amazed by Dion’s voice, Angélil was intent on making Celine famous in January, 1981. He mortgaged his own home to finance the recording of Celine Dion’s debut album! (She was only 13!)

Spring Cleaning for Your Colorado Lawn (Part 1 of 2)

We’ve put together a “Spring Lawn Care Checklistâ€? to help you stay on track and organize your lawn’s needs. With a little effort, your lawn will be ready for summer fun in no time! Inspect Your Lawn. Get your rake out. Gathering up last year’s leaves and thatch – that dead grass under all of the green grass in your yard – is important to keeping your Colorado lawn healthy. Pick up fallen branches, sticks and rake off matted leaves. Edge Your Beds. Check the edges of your beds – that all important separation between your grass and your landscape beds. A fresh edge adds distinction and character to your landscape. It also keeps the grass clippings out of your beds. Set Your Mower Height. Set the height of your lawn mower to 3â€?. Longer grass will grow thicker, healthier and result in a more established root system. Note: before you ďŹ re up the mower, make sure to sharpen the blades, replace spark plugs and check the oil and air ďŹ lters. Check Hoses and Sprinkler Heads. To conserve the most water possible, make sure you don’t have any leaky hoses or rotors, and that they’re spraying only where you want them to. No sense giving the driveway a bath. Create a Compost Pile. Pick a spot away from your house and pile your grass clippings, dead leaves and even kitchen scraps. Give it a turn or two every weekend and you’ll soon have a nutrient-rich mixture to spread on your garden. Get Organized. You’ll save yourself tons of time if your garage or garden shed is in proper order. Take everything out, sweep the oor and put things back in a logical and orderly way. Return tools back to their proper places. Anything you don’t need, give to charity or sell. Chris Dominy is the owner of Parker based and Weed Man Lawn Care.

• On April 8, 563 B.C., Buddhists celebrate the commemoration of the birth of Gautama Buddha, the founder of Buddhism. Gautama Buddha was born as Prince Siddhartha, son of the king of the Sakya kingdom, located on the borders of present-day Nepal and India. • On April 7, 1776, Navy Capt. John Barry, commander of the American warship Lexington, makes the first American naval capture of a British vessel when he takes command of the British warship HMS Edward off the coast of Virginia. • On April 12, 1914, the Mark Strand Theater opens to the public in New York City. The Strand was the first of the “dream palaces.” It seated 3,000 people and boasted a second-floor balcony. • On April 9, 1939, Easter Sunday, more than 75,000 people come to the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., to hear black contralto Marian Anderson give a free concert. Anderson had been scheduled to sing at Washington’s Constitution Hall, but the Daughters of the American Revolution denied her the right to perform because of her race. • On April 11, 1951, President Harry Truman relieves Gen. Douglas MacArthur of command of the U.S. forces in Korea. The firing set off an uproar among the American public, but Truman remained committed to keeping the conflict in Korea limited. Eventually the American people understood that MacArthur’s policies might have led to a massively expanded war in Asia. • On April 10, 1963, the USS Thresher, an atomic submarine, sinks in the Atlantic Ocean, killing the entire crew when it unexpectedly plunged to the sea floor 300 miles off the coast of New England. A subsequent investigation revealed that a leak in a silver-brazed joint in the engine room had caused a short circuit. • On April 13, 1970, disaster strikes 200,000 miles from Earth when oxygen tank No. 2 blows up on Apollo 13, the third manned lunar landing mission.

AMAZING DEALS ON... One year, a husband decided to buy his mother-in-law a Cemetery plot as a Christmas gift. The next year, he didn’t buy her a gift. When she asked him why, he replied,

· Boulders · Siloam · Flagstone

“Well, you still haven’t used the gift I bought you last year!” And that’s how the fight started. ------------------------------------------My wife walked into the den & asked “What’s on the TV?” I replied “Dust” And that’s how the fight started. ------------------------------------------A woman is standing nude, looking in the bedroom mirror. She is not happy with what she sees and says to her husband, ‘I feel horrible; I look old, fat and ugly.. I really need you to pay me a compliment. ‘The husband replies, ‘Your eyesight is darn near perfect.’ And that’s how the fight started.
