TIDBITS® DIGS WITH THE

ARMADILLOS

by Patricia L. Cook The Spanish word armadillo means “little armored one.” There are twenty species of the odd looking mammals that wear hard shell-like armor. • Armadillos are not rodents or marsupials and are unrelated to opossums as well. They are mammals, with bony plates covering their back, head, and legs. Most also have bony plates or rings covering their tails. They are the only living mammals with such coverings. • Armadillos originated in South America, which is where most are still residing. The only species in the United States is the ninebanded armadillo, which is found mostly in the southeastern states. They are about the size of an average house cat, ranging in length from 24-31 inches (61-79 cm) and weigh between 8 and 15 pounds (3-7 kg). • The nine-banded armadillo has been spotted as far north as Illinois and Kansas. So far, the northeastern, western and cold northern states have not had to deal with the armored critters. Canadians will probably never see them unless they come south to visit! • Armadillos lack sufficient body fat, especially newborn pups, to endure cold weather. They cannot survive temperatures averaging 28° F (-2°C) or lower. turn the page for more!

• Along with their need for warm weather, armadillos also need water. They tend to be found in woody areas, grasslands, wetlands and areas with thorny brush. • Armadillos can wreak havoc on lawns and fields. They are considered pests by homeowners and farmers. The biggest threats to armadillos are humans in cars and their pets; mainly dogs who easily catch and kill young and old armadillos. Most of the animals that humans see are the dead carcasses on roadways. Their inability to get out of the way of automobiles has earned them the nickname “Hillbilly Speed Bumps!” • A notable reaction when nine-banded armadillos are frightened is that they will actually jump up with their arms up (as in a “hands in the air, you’re under arrest” pose). When autos hit these critters in the road, it is not usually the tires that hit them but the front bumpers and grills when they jump up! • Another nickname given to armadillos during the Great Depression of the 1920’s was “Hoover Hogs.” This was because of the promise made by President Herbert Hoover that he would put “a chicken in every pot” for Americans. Many poor people turned to armadillos in their pots due to the collapse of the US economy after World War I. •

Some people in the southern states still eat armadillo. Also, in many Central and South American areas armadillo meat is part of the average diet. Connoisseurs say they taste like high-quality, fine-grained pork.

• Armadillos are not blind but have very poor eyesight. Their ears and noses help them find food and escape from predators. Humans can sometimes quietly watch armadillos without being noticed.

Welcome to Goose Tips! With Easter just a couple of weeks away, I thought I’d share a cute and simple idea for Cadbury eggs. I’m a sucker for holiday candy, so when I laid my eyes upon Cadbury Creme Eggs at the grocery store I immediately threw them into my cart.

Slam the Door on Fleas

DEAR PAW’S CORNER: Every summer, my cats get fleas. It’s agony for them and for me, because I have flea bites on my ankles all through the warm season when I want to wear sandals. The problem goes away in late fall through winter, but comes back with warm weather. How can I stop the constant re-infestation? -- Trudy in Evanston, Ill. DEAR TRUDY: Fleas actually are a year-round problem, even in colder climates. They may not be as active in the winter, but even if dormant or dead, their eggs usually are still in the infested areas, waiting for the right conditions to hatch. During the winter, it’s important to keep dusting and vacuuming the entire house at least once a week, with particular attention paid to the areas your cats inhabit the most. Treat the house with a flea-stopping preventative -- a number of products are available at the pet store, such as sprinkle-on treatments for the

carpet, furniture and drapes. Or, research alternative repellents made with natural or household items such as lemon-juice sprays or essential oils. Comb the cats’ fur daily if possible, and go through it with a flea comb once a week. As spring rolls around, start regular treatment with a flea preventative. Once-a-month topical treatments can be very effective in reducing or eliminating fleas, but many pet owners are against using them. Talk to the veterinarian about the most effective options. It’s also important to keep your cats indoors. There are a number of safety reasons to do this anyway, and it prevents fleas from dropping onto their fur as they brush through grass or greenery. Start now with a flea-prevention program, before you even feel an itch, and this summer can be much more comfortable. Send your questions or comments to ask@pawscorner. com.

Directions: 1. Scoop batter into paper liner 2/3 of the way full. Place one frozen Cadbury Creme Egg into the middle of each cupcake. Use a spatula to spread the batter over the egg. 2. Bake according to the recipe you are using. Allow cupcake to cool completely. 3. Frost the top of each cupcake and top with a mini Cadbury Egg if desired. The Wounded Goose will be closed on Easter Sunday so our staff may celebrate with family. When your family decides to dine out, gather around our table at the Goose. Remember every Friday is Wild Game...Thanks to you we are celebrating 5 years...Now serving beer and wine. The Wounded Goose, we have a lot of

competition, but our food doesn’t!

ARMADILLOS (continued): Because of their armor, armadillos are not very flexible. Only one of the twenty species, the three-banded armadillo has the ability to roll itself into a ball to hide from predators. This species has a head shaped like a teardrop that seals the armor when it rolls up. All of the others use speed and their digging abilities to escape from danger. All armadillos are fast diggers, with their long claws. However, if they can’t dig under something, they will climb over. They have been observed climbing fences and trees! Armadillos are good swimmers as well. They can hold their breath for about 6 minutes! They typically “dog paddle” and can also walk along the bottom of smaller bodies of water. When crossing larger rivers or lakes, they swim. Since their armor is heavy, they gulp air to fill their intestines and give themselves buoyancy. Pretty clever little critters! This ability is probably one way they managed to migrate north from South America. Warm-blooded, but with low body fat and thin shells, armadillos can’t maintain their body temperatures as most mammals can. This can turn the normally nocturnal animals into diurnal when the weather is cooler. (Nocturnal – active at night; diurnal – active during the day). With the twenty different species there are differences in size and appearance. The ones found in the U.S., appear naked under their armor. They actually do have a sparse bit of hair on their undersides. Pink fairy armadillos are the smallest species; only about 3 inches (8cm) in length. They are mostly furry with very little shell. These interesting creatures look like moles wearing a cape and armored headdress!

• 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. The crippled spacecraft continued to the moon, circled it, and began a long journey back to Earth, parachuting safely into the Pacific Ocean. (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

• It was 19th-century British author and social reformer John Ruskin who made the following sage observation: "In order that people may be happy in their work, these three things are needed: they must be fit for it; they must not do too much of it; and they must have a sense of success in it." • Before the element helium was known to exist on Earth, scientists discovered that it existed on the sun. The newly discovered element was therefore named helium after the Greek god of the sun, Helios. • If you suffer from odontophobia, you're afraid of teeth.

• If you have ever been pregnant (or known someone who has), you might be familiar with a condition sometimes known as "momnesia" or "prego-brain." It seems pretty common for pregnant women to forget names, misplace keys and sometimes even make it to work while still wearing their fuzzy slippers. You might be surprised to learn that there is science to support the existence of this phenomenon: Brain scans show that during pregnancy, some of the blood flow in a woman's brain shifts from the forebrain, responsible for short-term memory and multitasking, to the hindbrain, which takes care of the basics of survival. So the next time you see a pregnant woman in the grocery store wearing bunny slippers, give her a break; she's building a new person. • A cow was once purchased at auction for $1.3 million. If you are like the average adult, you will be cheated on one time before you find the person you settle down with. Also, at some point during your dating life you'll be the cheater. Thought for the Day: "A person usually has two reasons for doing something: a good reason and the real reason." -- Thomas Carlyle (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

ARMADILLOS (continued): • The largest armadillo species is called, not surprisingly, the giant armadillo. They can grow up to 5 feet (1.5 m) long and weigh as much as 132 pounds (60 kg)! They have 11-13 movable bands on their main shells and 3-4 on their necks. They have up to 100 teeth which are shed as they age. • All armadillos have teeth that are like pegs and don’t have enamel; hence they are not very hard or strong. Armadillos are from the order of mammals called Edentata (or Xenarthra) which is a descriptive adjective that means “lacking teeth.” They actually may have teeth but many times there are no front teeth and very few or no back teeth. Other mammals from the order that are also found in Central and South America are anteaters and sloths. • An unusual happening with the nine-banded species is that they are the only known mammals that give birth to four identical babies. (Rarely there will be 3 or 5 instead of 4 but they are always identical.) This birth phenomenon is known as “polyembryony.” The identical quadruplets provide medical researchers with valuable models for studying multiple births in humans. • Nine-banded armadillos have another strange ability concerning their young. They can delay birth after fertilization for up to two years. Another peculiarity about young pups is that they will make a weak purring noise when they attempt to nurse a female that is not their mother. • The nine-banded species have been heard making other odd noises. They have a low, wheezy grunt when they dig and burrow or are captured; a buzzing noise when they are alarmed or are trying to escape; and sometimes a pig-like squeal when frightened.

NIA VARDALOS Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada on September 24, 1962, Antonia Eugenia Vardalos is most widely known for her starring role in My Big Fat Greek Wedding in 2002. She goes by the shortened version of her first and middle names, Nia. • Vardalos has always had an outgoing personality. She started performing at the Rainbow Stage, a local theater company. Her work there helped her secure a scholarship to Ryerson University in Toronto in 1986. • In 1988, Vardalos joined Toronto’s Second City theater troupe. She moved to Chicago’s famous Second City troupe shortly after. From there she settled in Los Angeles and started landing bit parts on sitcoms, including The Drew Carey Show. She also had a good role on Team Knight Rider. • Vardalos’ biggest success, so far, was when her one-woman play, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, became a hit independent film in 2002. She drew on her eccentric Greek upbringing and stories from her Greek friends, to write the play. When actress Rita Wilson and her husband, Tom Hanks, agreed to back her film it became the surprise hit of the year. With only a $5 million budget, small compared to most hits, the film drew record numbers of viewers by word-of-mouth with hardly any television or billboard advertising. • CBS ran a sitcom to follow the movie in February, 2003, called My Big Greek Life. It featured many from the movie’s cast but only had a brief run. • Vardalos has had other successes in writing and acting, including Connie and Carla and I Hate Valentine’s Day. She starred in My Life in Ruins, and co-wrote Larry Crowne, with Tom Hanks.

NIA VARDALOS (continued): Vardalos married Ian Gomez on September 5, 1993. Obvious from her writing about families and her Greek upbringing emphasizing the importance of family, Nia and Ian wanted children. After struggling with infertility for over ten years, including 13 failed In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) procedures, Vardalos and Gomez looked into adoption. After noticing a billboard about foster care adoption near her home in Los Angeles that she’d driven by many times, and many frustrations with regular adoption routes, the two decided to check the system out. Surprisingly, the two welcomed a three-yearold little girl in 2008, with only 14-hours’ notice! Little Ilaria had been a foster child since birth. According to a People Magazine interview in April, 2013, Vardalos “knew she was meant to be the little girl’s mother,” the first time she saw her. She whispered in little Ilaria’s ear, “I will always take care of you.” Vardalos is now not only an actress and writer of movies and plays but in April, 2013, her book, Instant Mom, hit bookstores. Vardalos is a proponent of foster care adoptions and feels “a responsibility to use my big fat mouth to talk about this issue!” The book is full of humor and honesty about the difficulties of becoming a parent and parenting once you have a child. She says this is “the book I wished was out there when I was searching for credible information on adoption.” The proceeds from the sale of her book are donated to charity. This humorous Greek Canadian actress still acts in film and television projects while being a mom and wife. She also stays busy answering questions about her book and the joys of adoption.

Outdoor billboard advertising actually began when lithography was invented in 1796. Smart business men and women wanted the public to know about their goods and services. • The earliest use of large format billboards (in excess of 50 square feet or 4.6 square meters) was when Jared Bell printed circus posters in 1835, in New York. • Leasing of billboards began in 1867, the start of an American industry. The Associated Bill Posters’ Association of the U.S. and Canada formed in Chicago in 1891. After several changes, the association has been known as the Outdoor Advertising Association of America (OAAA) for years. OAAA celebrated its 120th anniversary in 2011. • By 1900, companies wanted to advertise soaps, toothpaste, breakfast cereals and more. At that time, standard billboards were created in America. Many billboards were erected with mass production and placement along streets and highways. • During World War I billboards promoted having troops and supplies ready for conflict. After the war, the large advertisements communicated peace and improving life. • The practice of giving away free advertising space for public service messages started in 1913. Companies owning billboards are still encouraged to fill “open boards” with positive messages helpful for the general health and welfare of the public. • Burma Shave, a shaving cream company, had a very successful road sign campaign that started in the 1920s using sets of six wooden signs about 100 feet (30 m) apart along roadways across the country. Catchy jingles secured the company’s profits and its placement in history. They were on the roads until 1963.

BILLBOARDS (continued): One of the best advertising campaigns in the world started when a small drugstore in South Dakota encouraged motorists to pull over for free ice water! When Ted and Dorothy Hustead bought the store in 1931, naming it Wall Drug, they struggled to get customers to stop as they drove by. Located near the South Dakota Badlands and Mount Rushmore, now there are more than 2.2 million visitors a year! Their small signs, patterned after Burma Shave, encouraged people to stop for water and 5¢ coffee…still available today! Times Square in New York City is known for its large (some say obnoxious!) billboards. The area has been the center of the Theater District of the city since World War I, and has attracted millions of visitors from the world over since that time. Advertisers recognized it as a prime place for billboards early on. Owned originally by the New York Times Newspaper, the paper occupied the building for less than10 years. The first large electric billboard was installed at Times Square in 1917. The first historical signage occurred in 1928 when the New York Times encircled the building with the first “zipper” headliner. The sign announced Herbert Hoover’s victory as President of the United States. The Times building is not occupied by tenants anymore. When the current owners looked at renovating, it was decided that the building would just be used as a sign tower. Over 90% of the building is covered in advertisements. One of the most noteworthy signs now gracing Times Square is an eco-sign project for Ricoh, a Japanese company. The sign uses wind, solar and batteries for operation. The first sign of this type was installed by Ricoh in Osaka, Japan in 2003.

Q: I have a planter that features a poodle design. It was made by Hull Pottery and given to me as a gift. -- Susan, Mason City, Iowa A: I found your planter referenced in “Warman’s Hull Pottery: Identification and Price Guide” by David Doyle and published by Krause Books. According to Doyle, your planter is valued in the $20 to $40 range and was a “novelty” product of Hull. Q: I have a copy of “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens published in 1935 by Dodd, Mead & Company. Can you tell me how much it is worth? -- Lillian, Marion, Ind. A: I contacted several used book dealers about your novel, and they seem to agree it is probably worth about $35. The value of a book is determined by several factors including condition, rarity and edition. Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Q: I have a large opaque bowl that has been identified as a piece of Paden City Glass. I can’t find this type of glass mentioned in any of my reference books. Can you help me? -- Dot, Hammond, La. A: The glass company was established in Paden City, W.Va., sometime during the early decades of the past century. During the 1920s, the company expanded its production to include colored wares in crystal and opaque glass in a variety of patterns and styles. The Paden Glass Company built a reputation for its high standards of homemade wares until about 1950, when under new management, the plant was automated. Paden Glass later closed due to financial problems. One of the best sources is “Glass A to Z” by David Shotwell and published by Krause Books.

Fully 50 percent of veterans in the Department of Veterans Affairs health-care system suffer from chronic pain, according to testimony before the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs. That’s above the national average. The treatment method for serious pain typically has been through the use of prescription opioids, which are habit-forming. In at-risk patients, use of these drugs can lead to abuse of the medications and “diversion,” which means they’re sold to others. Other patients are at risk just because of long-term use. The methods to help at-risk veterans start before the drugs are even handed out -- by improving the training of those who prescribe the drugs and by participation in state-level prescription monitoring programs. The greatest effort has gone into determining when these opioids are appropriately prescribed when there are multiple medical conditions -physical as well as psychological -- along with the risks for overdose because of a combination of the two. One of the VA’s drug programs is showing great signs of success. The Opioid Safety Initiative -- tested at eight sites in Minnesota -- has been shown to reduce the dependency on habit-forming opioids. This is accomplished via education, monitoring, other non-habit-forming drugs and alternative methods such as acupuncture and behavior therapy, as well as using a multidisciplinary medical team. Patients were offered a trial of non-opioid drugs to test lower doses for pain management. The result: Dependency on high-dose opioids use was reduced by 50 percent. Also in development is a pain-management app for cellphones -- the self-management VA Pain Coach. The app includes the veteran’s health library, a management toolkit and assessments. To learn more about the cellphone app, go online to mobilehealth.va.gov/content/pain-coach-app. Freddy Groves regrets that he cannot personally answer reader questions, but will incorporate them into his column whenever possible.

Willow Wood Antique Mall Spring Fix-Up

It’s spring ... time to see just what Mother Nature has done to your house and yard over the winter. Here’s your to-do list for spring fix-up. Outside: • Clean out gutters and check for loose attachments. Look for leaks at the seams. Consider installing gutter screens. • Check the foundation of the house to be sure there are no depressions in the ground where water can accumulate. Aim downspout water diverters and splash guards away from the house. • If you have a shed, check for water damage. If it’s on blocks, determine if it needs to be raised or leveled. (The higher it is off wet ground, the longer the shed will last.) • Clear leaves and debris from in and around your air conditioning compressor. Be sure the supports underneath haven’t shifted. • Look for exterior damage to paint and trim. • If you have a deck, check for loose railings, splintered wood, raised nails and rotten step treads. If you replace wood, remember that you might not be able to paint it for up to a year. • Check walkways to be sure paving stones haven’t lifted. Check driveway for cracks. • Power wash the exterior of your house. • Consider whether window awnings would help to keep the summer sun off your windows and keep your house cooler, especially on the south and west sides. Inside: • If you have a basement, go all around the interior walls and look for evidence of water. • Do the same with interior walls at the ceiling to be sure your house didn’t develop a roof leak. Don’t forget the ceilings in closets. • Take down the clear plastic you put on windows and get out your sunblock curtains. • If you’ve had had air leaks you didn’t get around to fixing, do them now. Once the window frame is warm enough, apply caulk and weatherstripping. Buy electric-plug air insulator blocks. • If you use a window air conditioner, make sure it still works. Then vacuum the evaporator fins and condenser coils, wash the filter screen and be sure the drainage hole isn’t plugged with debris. (Use a paper clip to clear it.) • Consider whether you need a dehumifier for moist summer air. Buy now before they’re gone. •Replace furnace filters if you have central air. • Check fire extinguishers and smoke detectors.

Q: My next-door neighbor informed me yesterday that he intends to set up a beehive in his yard. Is he even allowed to do this in a populated area? We both have half-acre lots, and he says the hive likely will be located in a far corner, but I see nuisance and even disaster ahead. What if the bees swarm? What if they sting a child and, God forbid, that child is allergic? Should I contact the city about this? -- Claire S., via e-mail A: Believe it or not, beekeeping can and does take place in suburban areas -- and even in the middle of the city. I understand your concern, however. Take heart in the fact that your neighbor came over to

tell you about the planned hive before it arrived. That gives you the opportunity to ask some questions about the hive, the type of bees and so on. I encourage you to keep it polite. For now, just ask questions and listen to your neighbor. There’s a very good chance that he has been researching beekeeping for some time and that he even knows the municipal ordinances regarding the activity. If he already has some homesteading activities going on, such as keeping a few chickens, and those activities haven’t been a nuisance to you or others, it’s likely that the beehive will make little to no difference in the neighborhood -- other than the flowers in your garden perhaps blooming bigger and better than ever before, thanks to nature’s best pollinators living nearby. After talking to your neighbor, do some research of your own. MAAREC (Mid-Atlantic Apicultural Research & Extension Consortium) has a good pamphlet available to download as a PDF about suburban beekeeping, and a number of websites are available under that search term. There are many ways

for beekeepers to reduce the possibility of nuisance and stings in the neighborhood. You also can contact your municipality about whether beekeeping is allowed. If it is specifically permitted, there are usually rules about how big the hive can be and whether it needs to be registered with the state’s agricultural office. Above all, give it a chance. The dwindling bee population worldwide is greatly concerning researchers, so homesteaders’ beekeeping can be a small but helpful contribution toward solving the problem. And, being on friendly terms with a successful beekeeper can have the positive side effect of receiving an occasional, and perhaps steady, gift of honey. HOME TIP: Interested in beekeeping but don’t have a lot of money or space? Look up local beekeeping groups online or consider starting one at a community garden or other open space. Send your questions or home tips to ask@thisisahammer. com. (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

Bul l e t i n B o ard High-Tech Gadgets Track Our Health Kaiser Health News took a look recently at some of the possibilities of remote monitoring by high-tech health gadgets. These devices can fit into your cellphone and allow your doctor keep track of your health, even if you’re not in his office. For example, if your heart rate accelerates while you’re doing your daily errands, the doctor will know it when he reads the information. Some devices can tell whether we’re taking pills on time. Others fit under the mattress on our bed to check breathing and heart rate. Still others can check our glucose levels or blood pressure. That’s not to say most doctors are jumping on these devices as being the latest and greatest. While they like the information that can be gathered, some doctors are concerned about patient privacy. The information doesn’t go straight into patient records, but the day eventually will come when it will. At this point, patients must give permission for their information to be taken and must go into the doctor’s office to have the data transferred. Soon patients will be able to send it themselves over the Internet. In a preview of coming events, one device developer already is hooked up with advertisers and labs. Insurance companies are encouraging patients to upload their information from other devices. Many of the devices aren’t yet approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Are you nervous about this yet? What if you knew your information would go over the Internet, or if you knew it wasn’t always covered by health privacy laws? If you’re asked to wear one of these new gadgets, ask questions about where the information goes ... lots and lots of questions.

Life Is Still Good Without an Appendix DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My 13-year-old son went to band camp for five days. On day three, he had terrific stomach pain and started to vomit. The instructors were alarmed and took him to the local hospital, where doctors diagnosed appendicitis. We had to give phone permission for him to have an operation. Everything went fine, and he recovered quickly. My wife and I have a few questions. Could he have eaten something that caused appendicitis? What does not having an appendix do to people? No one in my wife’s or my family has had such an operation. We’re ignorant about all this. -- G.G. ANSWER: The appendix dangles from the first part of the colon in the lower-right side of the abdomen. It looks like a slender worm, and has an average length of 3 inches (8 cm). The function of the appendix isn’t clearly defined, but it might have a role in body immunity. Life without an appendix goes on as normally as life with one. The appendix has a hollow core, which is lined with lymphoid tissue, the same kind of tissue found in lymph nodes. Bacteria from the colon can invade the hollow core and cause the lymph tissue to swell. Swelling cuts off blood supply, and the appendix begins to disintegrate -- appendicitis. Undigested food or hard fecal material also can block the appendix’s core and lead to the same situation. Nothing your son ate is likely the cause. All the other campers ate the same food as he, but he was the only one to develop this problem.

SAUNDERS INSURANCE AGENCY

The pain of appendicitis most often starts in the area of the navel (bellybutton) and works its way toward the lower-right corner of the abdomen. Temperature rises. Vomiting is common, and sometimes diarrhea is part of the picture. A doctor, by what he or she hears from the patient, along with the examination of the abdomen, usually can make the diagnosis. In confusing circumstances, an ultrasound is most helpful. Millions of people worldwide live without an appendix. They do quite well. So will your son. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: When I was about 10 years old, I got the mumps. Now I am 30 and have been married for three years. My wife and I want to have a family, but we aren’t having any luck. Do you think the mumps made me infertile? -- J.Z. ANSWER: In around 40 percent of men who get the mumps after puberty, the virus also travels to the testicles. That results in impaired fertility in only 13 percent. Sterility almost never happens. If both testicles are infected, then sterility might be a problem. Before puberty, testicular involvement is rare, and infertility isn’t a problem. You were only 10. It’s highly unlikely that the mumps caused you to be infertile. You and your wife shouldn’t have to handle this problem on your own. Why not consult a doctor so both of you can be examined? An answer to the question why you aren’t having the family you want will be found, and a solution, if possible, will be suggested. Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible. Readers may write him or request an order form of available health newsletters at P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. (c) 2014 North America Synd., Inc. All Rights Reserved

Food prepared alla cacciatora, “hunter-style,” includes mushrooms in the sauce. This dish is representative of the kind of home cooking that found its way first into Italian restaurants and then into American kitchens. Serve over wide, flat noodles. 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 (3 1/2 pounds) chicken, cut into 8 pieces and skin removed from all but wings 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1 medium onion, finely chopped 4 cloves garlic, crushed with garlic press 8 ounces mushrooms, trimmed and thickly sliced 1 can (14 to 16 ounces) tomatoes 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 tablespoon dried oregano, crumbled 1/4 teaspoon dried sage 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper, like cayenne 1. In nonstick 12-inch skillet, heat oil over mediumhigh heat until very hot. On waxed paper, coat chicken with flour, shaking off excess. Add chicken to skillet and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. With tongs, transfer chicken pieces to bowl as they are browned. 2. Add onion and garlic to skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring frequently, until just tender, about 3 minutes. 3. Add tomatoes with their juice, breaking them up with side of spoon. Add salt, oregano, sage, ground red pepper and chicken, and heat to boiling over high heat. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until juices run clear when thickest part of chicken is pierced with tip of knife, about 25 minutes. 4. Transfer chicken to serving bowl. Spoon sauce over chicken.

How to Enter the Friendship Zone and Have All the Friends You Want and Need

Loneliness ends when friendship begins, right? So, how do you go from all alone to all the friends you want and need? The solution, though not quick and easy, begins with you, within your own heart and mind. Here are five steps you must take to enter the friendship zone and create and maintain as many real friendships as you desire: Step 1: Show up. You form relationships most frequently from the people you see most frequently. That means if you want to find a friend you must get out of your shell and show up someplace where people you might like to meet can be found. Get active in a cause you support, go to church, volunteer, or search for clubs or other organizations that interest you. When we moved from San Diego to Colorado we moved to a town where we knew almost no one. When the political season started I went to a caucus meeting and met some of our neighbors. Now we have new friends with common interests because I showed up. Step 2: Speak up. It is easy to interact with people who like the same things you like. When I went to the political caucus meeting, I was confident I would meet people who agreed with my political ideas. In the process I got to know a couple with whom I shared much more than a common political position. We asked questions, listened politely, shared personal histories, and were drawn together by what we saw and heard. We spoke up! Step 3: Open up. You move from being buddies into the friendship zone as self-disclosure increases. A few weeks later our political friends dropped by for tea on the patio and our friendship deepened. In the comfort and privacy of our patio, we shared even

more of our personal lives. We opened up. This important step into the friendship zone is usually gradual and must be reciprocal. Here is how it works: one friend takes a risk and reveals something personal followed by the self-disclosure of the friendto-be. If the reciprocity continues, the entrance into the friendship zone advances. Experience will teach you when to step into the friendship zone and when to hold back. You can be quite certain the friendship zone is open wide when someone says, “Can I talk to you for a minute?” It is an invitation to intimacy (familiarity or closeness). As time passes, the act of self-disclosure and reciprocity become the glue that binds a friendship. Step 4: Listen up. Good friends know when to talk and when to listen. People who make every conversation about themselves do not stay long in anyone’s friendship zone. Those who know how to listen with skill and empathy have many long-term and meaningful friendships. Good friends listen to each other and by doing so provide emotional support and unconditional acceptance. Step 5: Shut up. Good friends tell us the truth about us, but those who have too many opinions about our mate, golf game, wardrobe, religious convictions, etc., become tiresome and eventually unwelcome in our friendship zone. Another aspect of the “shut up” principle is confidentiality. Someone who broadcasts to others titillating tidbits of confidential conversations, is not a friend but a gossip. To enter the friendship zone, take these five steps and will have the exact number of real friends you want and need.
