TIDBITS® EATS ICE CREAM

by Janet Spencer In 1846, Nancy Johnson invented the first hand-cranked ice cream freezer. On May 30, 1848, William Young of Baltimore registered her invention with the Patent Office, naming it the Johnson Patent Ice-Cream Freezer. Come along with Tidbits as we enjoy a few scoops! JUST DESSERTS • In 1851, Baltimore milk dealer Jacob Fussell sat down to figure out what he could do with all his surplus cream. Ice cream was his solution, and soon he was making more money dealing in ice cream than in milk. By 1856 he had become the nation’s first ice cream wholesaler. • Because he owned dairy herds, whereas other ice cream manufacturers had to buy their supply of cream, Fussell was able to undercut their prices, selling it for 25 cents a quart while competitors were selling it for 60 cents a quart. Even poor people could afford Fussell’s ice cream. When the local confectioner’s association insisted that he raise his price to an outrageous $1.25 per quart, he refused – and was nearly lynched by rival ice cream makers as a result.

ICE CREAM INVENTIONS Robert Green was selling soda drinks made of cream, syrup, and carbonated water at a festival in 1874 in Philadelphia. When he ran out of cream, he substituted ice cream instead. Green averaged $6 a day with his original drink, but brought in $600 a day selling the world’s first ice cream sodas. In 1890 many preachers considered drinking soda pop on Sundays to be sinful. Evanston, Illinois has the distinction of being the first town to pass a law against the “Sunday Soda Menace” which outlawed drinking soda on Sundays. According to the story, the local drug store, now unable to sell any of their popular ice cream sodas on Sunday, invented a new soda-free dish: ice cream, covered in syrup, and topped with a cherry. Because this new dish was available only on soda-less Sundays, they called it the ice cream sundae. The ice cream cone is thought to have originated at the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904. Ernest Hamwi was a concessionaire selling a wafer-like pastry baked on a waffle iron, which sold poorly because of the heat. Next to his stand was an ice cream vendor selling scoops in small cardboard cups. When he ran out of containers, Hamwi came to the rescue by rolling his wafers into a cornucopia and putting a scoop of ice cream in its mouth. Some ice cream novelties that never made it were ice cream in an aerosol can and the cone with a side-pocket for an extra scoop built in. The ice cream telegram flopped. It was a replica of a Western Union telegram, delivered to the home.

IT’S A FACT It was over ice cream in Robinson’s Drugstore in Dayton, Tennessee on May 5, 1923, that a young teacher named John Scopes was persuaded to test the state’s ban on teaching ‘theories that deny the divine creation of man,’ the famed Scopes Monkey Trial.

DEAR GARY: It’s not a moneymaking scheme. Trust me, you do not want your pets to suffer from the complications that heartworm infestation can cause. Heartworm in dogs is often fatal, and while cats are less likely to die from it, they too suffer problems due to the damage caused by the worms as they travel through blood vessels and organs. Hundreds of worms can live in a dog’s blood vessels -- ultimately traveling to the chambers of the heart -- for as long as seven years.

Vacation season is fast approaching for many of you......Dining out while on vacation should not be a budget buster. Three meals a day can add up quickly for families on vacation and you shouldn’t have to eat fast food for every meal to afford to go out. What can you do to save money? Here are my best tips to cut down on the cost of dining out. When planning your much needed vacation, take the time to investigate what type of restaurants are near your destination. Be sure to sign up at the restaurants’ sites to receive savings offers and coupons thru email: Prior to departing, check your email for coupons and print them. While you are at the computer, be sure to print directions from your hotel to the restaurant. Be sure to use credit card rewards or MyPoints to offset dining out. Scout out your hotel for discounted dining coupons.

Heartworm In Dogs Is Often Fatal

DEAR PAW’S CORNER: My veterinarian says I have to give both my dog and my cat heartworm medication every month. Why do I have to do this? It sounds like a moneymaking scheme for the vet and the pharmaceutical industry. -- Gary in Cincinnati

Welcome to Goose Tips!

It’s also somewhat easy for untreated dogs and cats to become infested with heartworm. The parasite is carried by mosquitoes and can be passed along when the mosquito bites your pet. Pets are at highest risk in the summer, when it’s hot and humid -- prime time for mosquitoes. Give your pets their heartworm medication at the recommended dose for their breed and size, or as specified by the vet. Most heartworm medicines must be given once a month. For pet owners whose dog has never been tested for heartworm, get this test at the vet’s office before starting treatment for heartworm. If the dog already has heartworm, the vet will need to treat it in a different way to prevent problems. Send your questions or comments to ask@ pawscorner.com.

Many times hotels will have coupons and discounts for nearby restaurants. A good place to look is in the entry way where all of the local attractions have their brochures. Restaurant.com is a great place to pick up dining discounts to use while on vacation. Take a few minutes to visit the www.restaurant. com site and type in the zip code or search for the city you will be visiting. Thanks to YOU we are celebrating 5 years, now serving beer and wine, Wild Game Every Friday....The Wounded Goose, we have a lot of competition, but our food doesn’t!

COLD WAR During the Korean War, General Lewis Puller announced that it was ridiculous to pamper marines with ice cream and demanded that the Armed Forces serve troops beer and whiskey instead. The Women’s Christian Temperance Union howled, enlisted men howled, and the Pentagon announced that ice cream would be served in mess lines three times a week. During World War II, escort destroyers were rewarded with 20 gallons of ice cream for every pilot they pulled out of the water. When the aircraft carrier Lexington was damaged and the order was given to abandon ship, someone mentioned that the ship was carrying a lot of ice cream. Sailors ate their fill before leaping into the sea. British airmen would put ice cream mixtures in cans in the rear compartments, where the plane’s vibration combined with the freezing temperatures at high altitudes would yield especially delicious ice cream.

FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH In 1934 the movie Kid Millions starring Eddie Cantor was released. Moviegoers were treated to a color talking picture featuring an ice cream fantasy as a finale. The scene occurred in an ice cream factory where chorus girls carried chocolate and strawberries to a huge freezer while other scantily clad girls skated across the freezer and coasted around on large slabs of Neapolitan. Cantor meanwhile was treating hundreds of ragged children to an ice cream banquet, and a reformed gangster shot cherries into each kid’s dish from a machine gun. ICE CREAM RIOT In 1952 on the Yale campus, the police ordered a portable ice cream cart off the campus. The result was a riot involving 1,500 students that was quelled with hoses and clubs. The owner of the pushcart was ultimately allowed to return to the campus, and a victory rally was held in his honor.

• On June 1, 1779, the court-martial of Benedict Arnold convenes in Philadelphia. After a clean record in the early days of the American Revolution, Arnold was charged with 13 counts of misbehavior. Arnold’s resentment and his perceived mistreatment by the American Army would fuel his coming traitorous defection. • On May 31, 1889, the South Fork Dam collapses, causing a flood in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, that kills more than 2,200 people. At 900 feet by 72 feet, it was the largest earth dam (made of dirt and rock) in the United States, and it created the largest man-made lake of the time, Lake Conemaugh. • On May 29, 1922, the United States Supreme Court rules that organized baseball did not violate antitrust laws as alleged by the Baltimore franchise of the defunct Federal League in 1915. The Supreme Court held that organized baseball is not a business, but a sport. • On May 28, 1937, the government of Germany -- then under the control of Adolf Hitler -- forms a new state-owned automobile company, later named Volkswagenwerk. After World War II ended, with the factory in ruins, the Allies would make Volkswagen the focus of their attempts to resuscitate the German auto industry. • On May 27, 1941, the British navy sinks Germany’s largest battleship, Bismarck, in the North Atlantic near France. Three days earlier, Bismarck had destroyed HMS Hood, the pride of the British fleet. The German death toll was more than 2,000. • On May 26, 1959, Harvey Haddix of the Pittsburgh Pirates pitches 12 perfect innings against the Milwaukee Braves, only to lose the game on a two-run double by Braves’ first baseman Joe Adcock in the 13th inning.

You might be surprised to learn, then, that in 1900, a journalist named John Watkins successfully predicted a number of significant developments that came to pass in the 20th century. In an article in the Ladies’ Home Journal, Watkins wrote that within the following 100 years, “Man will see around the world. Persons and things of all kinds will be brought within focus of cameras connected electrically with screens at opposite ends of circuits, thousands of miles at a span.” Also, “Hot or cold air will be turned on from spigots to regulate the temperature of a house”; “ready-cooked meals will be bought from establishments similar to our bakeries of today, É equipped with electric stoves, coffee-grinders, egg-beaters, stirrers, meat-saws, dishwashers and the like”; and “wireless telephone and telegraph circuits will span the world.” • If you listen to the radio for one hour, you will hear approximately 11,000 words spoken (or sung).

For Advertising Call (740) 446-4543 IRV & BURT • Irv’s father owned an ice cream store in Tacoma, Washington, and Irv often helped out. After World War II, he decided to open his own ice cream shop in Glendale, California. Meanwhile, Irv’s sister married a man named Burt, who was in the men’s clothing business. Irv convinced his brother-in-law that selling ice cream was a lot more fun than selling suits. So Burt opened an ice cream parlor in Pasadena. • Together they worked to invent new flavors, until they had one flavor for every day of the month. By 1948 Irv owned five ice cream shops and Burt owned three. By this time they realized they were paying less and less attention to each individual store, so they decided to combine their efforts and sell the shops to the store managers in a franchising operation. What should they name their franchise? • They decided to use their last names, so Irv and Burt flipped a coin to see whose name would be first. By 1949 they had 43 stores; there were more than 100 running by 1960; and in 1967 when they sold out to United Fruit Company for $12 million, they had around 500. Burt died six months later, but Irv remained involved in the company until he retired in 1978. By the time Irv died in 2008, what started with a single ice cream parlor in California was now the world’s largest chain of ice cream stores with 5,500 outlets worldwide. What were Burt and Irv’s last names? Answer at the bottom of the page. FAVORITE FLAVORS Vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry are the three favorite flavors, in order. Vanilla accounts for 51% of all ice cream sold, chocolate 13.5%, and strawberry 6%. Among sherbets, orange captures 40% of the market. Together there are over 1,000 flavors of ice cream Answer: Burt Baskin & Irv Robbins.

JOHN McLAUGHLIN John McLaughlin was born 1865 in Ontario and graduated from the University of Toronto in 1885 with degrees in Pharmacy and Chemistry. When he married a redheaded New York woman named Maud, he used her dowry to open a carbonated water plant in Toronto, selling his product to local drugstores. Soda jerks mixed the carbonated water with fruit juices and flavorings to create sodas that they sold on the spot. McLaughlin began tinkering with his own soda drink recipes and created McLaughlin Belfast Style Ginger Ale. The problem was that the only place you could drink his product was at a drug store soda fountain. He realized that what he needed was a way that customers could take his product home with them, or carry it with them on outings. Soon he developed a method of mass bottling his product. Now people could drink sodas at ball parks and beaches, and one of his main marketing methods was to hand out free sample bottles to people who gathered at such places. At Maud’s suggestion, McLaughlin refined his ginger ale recipe by lightening the dark color and improving the sharp taste of his first ginger ale. He named the new product Canada Dry Pale Ginger Ale, and Maud suggested the slogan, “The Champagne of Ginger Ales.” He patented the recipe in 1905. When referring to a drink, the word “dry” means “not sweet” (as in dry wine). In the early 20th century, most ginger ales were dark, syrupy, and sweet, and Canada Dry broke that mold. With the business growing, he decided to import his product to the United States. As early as 1907, Canada Dry was being shipped to U. S. grocery wholesalers in Buffalo, Brooklyn, and Detroit.

• Because the U.S. had recently increased import tariffs on ginger ale by 50%, Saylor and Mathes saved a lot of money by moving the company to the U.S. Because they were spending a fortune on railroad freight fees, they instigated licensing agreements so others could manufacture the product locally. They opened factories in Chicago and L.A. But they really hit pay dirt when Prohibition was enacted: Canada Dry was the perfect mixer for harsh homemade hooch. • Profits for Canada Dry in 1923 were $98,000 and for 1925 they were $1,240,000, enough to pay for the million dollar purchase price. Within three years, it was the bestselling ginger ale in the world. By 1930, the corporation was worth $30 million. Prohibition Officers were so impressed by its sudden popularity that they analyzed it for alcoholic content.

• In 1922, the two brothers opened a manufacturing plant in New York which turned out 25,000 bottles of ginger ale per day. However, by 1923, demand far exceeded supply. The McLaughlin brothers needed to either expand or sell out. They elected to sell out. Ontario-born Parry Saylor and his partner James Mathes bought the company for $1 million U.S. dollars.

• In 1914, John McLaughlin died at the age of 48. His brothers took over the corporation in spite of the fact that John had wanted his eldest son to take over. John’s brothers also cut Maud out of the company, leaving her penniless and dependent upon the charity of her in-laws. Had she been able to retain the 25,000 shares in the company she was entitled to, she would have become one of Canada’s richest citizens.

A NEW SODA POP In the 1890s Caleb Bradham opened a drugstore and soda fountain in North Carolina. He wanted to invent a drink that would soothe an upset stomach without using narcotics. Using kola nut, vanilla, and extracts, he whipped up a new concoction. He named it after a stomach enzyme that aids digestion, because he believed his drink would aid digestion just as the enzyme does. The company expanded rapidly, but a major ingredient was sugar, and when sugar prices fluctuated during World War I, Bradham declared bankruptcy. Another entrepreneur bought the drink company from the bank, but declared bankruptcy during the Depression. In 1931 Charles Guth bought the company for $10,500 out of sheer spite. He owned a chain of over 100 candy stores with soda fountains and was angry that Coca-Cola wouldn’t give him a price break on the enormous volumes of soda he sold. He wanted to give them some competition, but he too ran into financial problems and even offered to sell out to Coca-Cola, a deal they refused. Then he began selling the drink in a 12 ounce bottle for a nickel, whereas Coka-Cola came in a 6-ounce bottle for a nickel. Customers flocked to his product. Today the firm does $39 billion in business annually and has 185,000 employees. What’s the name of the drink? (Bonus points for naming the enzyme it was named after.) (Answer on next page)

For Advertising Call (740) 446-4543 IT’S A FACT During Prohibition, the Women’s Christian Temperance union attacked soft drinks as being potentially addictive. This inspired an editor of a Kansas newspaper to write a satire in which he worried about “men returning home sodden with Coca-Cola” and men “caught in the grip of the Coca-Cola habit.” Answer: Pepsi, and pepsin. ANOTHER NEW SODA POP • Charles Grigg went to work for an advertising agency in St. Louis where one of his clients was a soft drink company. He became intrigued by the soft drink business and went to work for the manufacturer, tinkering with recipes and inventing a successful new soft drink called Whistle (as in ‘wet your’). After a falling-out with his boss, he went to work for a different soft drink maker and invented an orange-flavored soft drink called Howdy. Howdy was popular but it could not compete with Orange Crush which had the market sewn up tight. • Eventually Charles started his own firm, and in 1929 came out with a lemon-lime flavored soda called Bib-Label Lithiated Lemon-Lime Soda. ‘Bib-Label’ was for the bottle’s label which was hung around the neck of the bottle like a bib, and ‘lithiated’ was for the lithium citrate (a mood enhancing substance) that the drink contained in trace amounts. • Charles had the bad luck to release his product mere weeks before the stock market crash of 1929. During the Great Depression that followed, he had a lot stacked against him: his product had a difficult name, it was priced higher than the competition, and he had a lot of competition. The one thing he could change was the name, so he changed it to something extremely simple. By the 1940s his renamed soft drink was the third best selling soda in the world. What’s the new name? (Answer at bottom of page) IT’S A FACT

• A failed cola company in Ohio named their new pop Norka, advertising, “Remember— Norka spelled backwards is Akron.” Answer: 7-Up.

Q: I travel a great deal for work and gather matchbooks whenever I find them. They are free and fun to collect. Is there a guide to determine if I have any rarities? -- Carl, Port Orange, Fla. A: The great thing about collecting matchbooks is -- as you mentioned -- a fairly good collection can be built with little or no money. That also seems to translate in prices when they pop up in the marketplace. During a recent visit to a major antique mall, I spotted a large plastic bag of several hundred matchbooks priced for $5. As I often write in this column, there are always exceptions. A matchbook from the Stork Club in New York would more than likely be worth its weight in gold. One of the better references that I have found is “The Matchcover Collector’s Price Guide” by Bill Retskin and published by Antique Trader Books. This guide features more than 10,000 matchcover descriptions and estimated values in over 150 categories, from airlines to zoos. Incidentally, the first matchbook was created in 1889 and quickly became one of the premier advertising vehicles of the 20th century. Q: I have played golf for most of my adult life and have a collection of vintage clubs, balls and even tournament badges from the 1950s. How can I find out how much my collection is worth? -- Dick, Macon, Ga. A: The “Official Price Guide to Golf Collectibles” by Edward Kiersh and published by House of Collectibles is fairly comprehensive, yet easy to navigate. In addition to current prices, Kiersh, editor of “Golf Course Register,” explains what makes a golf collectible valuable. He also advises how to make purchases on the Internet, and even provides tips on how to preserve, store and display golf collectibles. you toss. Q: I was a member of the Playboy Club in Chicago during the 1960s. In addition to Playboy Magazine, I also managed to collect and save related materials such as ashtrays, key chains, shot glasses and calendars. Whom can I contact to find others who collect? Ð Art, Paterson, N.J. A: Tom Bonner is president of the Playboy Collectors Club of America, P.O. Box 653, Phillipsburg, MO 65722. Write to Larry Cox in care of KFWS, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475, or send e-mail to questionsforcox@ aol.com. Due to the large volume of mail he receives, Mr. Cox cannot personally answer all reader questions, nor do appraisals.

VA Stonewalls Congress Over Deaths of 40 Vets

Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Fla., chairman of the House Committee on Veterans Affairs, has called for a complete investigation into the travesty of the 40 veterans who died while awaiting care at the Department of Veterans Affairs medical center in Phoenix. In his statement, Miller wrote of the “growing pattern of preventable veteran deaths and patient safety incidents at VA medical centers across the country,” and specifically mentions Atlanta; Columbia, S.C.; Augusta, Ga.; Pittsburgh; and Memphis. A week later, Miller wrote directly to VA chief Eric Shinseki about the delay in preserving evidence of “secret” wait lists at the Phoenix VA. He cited several witnesses to the fact that paper lists were shredded, and he had requested more specific information about the who, what and when of it. He got nada -- even though he’d made a request for the preservation of the documents as far back as April 9. It turns out the VA’s general counsel hadn’t passed along the request for eight days ... plenty of time to shred a lot of documents. Miller is someone to watch. A few months ago, he launched a program called the VA Honesty Project, which is “designed to highlight the Department of Veterans Affairs’ lack of transparency with the press, and by extension, with the public.” He pointed out that the VA has 54 full-time employees who are tasked with handling media requests ... or ignoring them, as the case may be. Miller’s project documents 70 cases so far in which the VA failed to respond to questions, saying that the VA’s “media avoidance strategy can’t be anything other than intentional.” The Veterans committee itself has been waiting on more than 100 information requests dating back to 2012. To view the evidence, see: http://veterans. house.gov/VAHonestyProject. Freddy Groves regrets that he cannot personally answer reader questions, but will incorporate them into his column whenever possible. Send email to columnreply2@gmail.com.

Do Homework Before Long-Distance Move The cost of a long-distance move is a formula based on the mileage to be traveled and the weight of the goods, plus the cost of packing and special services surcharges. Here are some money-saving ideas: --Before you make the first call to a moving company, de-clutter your home. Consider whether to move or sell items of questionable value. Sell those items at a garage sale to put money in your pocket and keep them out of the moving van. --Always get estimates from a minimum of three moving companies. There are three types of estimates: • Non-binding -- the movers will give their best estimate of the costs, but you could be required to pay up to 110 percent of that estimate if the shipment is overweight. • Binding -- both you and the mover agree to the price, whether the shipment comes in over or under the estimated weight. • A Not-To-Exceed estimate guarantees that you’ll pay the lower of either the binding estimate or the actual cost. --Ask the estimator for ideas on reducing expenses and avoiding surcharges. Is it cheaper to move or to replace older appliances, riding mowers and snowmobiles? --Ask if there is an additional discount (there should be) for allowing the company to temporarily store your belongings until they can be combined on a truck for a more cost-effective trip. --Handle surcharge items yourself: Disconnect the washer and block the tub, dismantle home entertainment centers and home-office work stations. --Do your own packing. Used boxes, crumpled newspaper and tape can go a long way toward saving money. If you purchase boxes, hunt for the best deals. For books, compare the cost of having them moved versus mailing them to yourself book rate. --Be flexible in your moving date. If you can wait until the middle of September, you could save up to 15 percent of your costs. --Insist on an inventory of the goods to be shipped. This will ensure that the conditions of your belongings are noted before shipment, in the event you have a damage claim. In summary: Do your homework in advance of a move to save the most money. For more information call American Moving and Storage Association at 703-683-7410 or go online to http://www.moving.org/.

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a 65-year-old male in fairly good health. I do a bit of running. I’ve checked my blood pressure and pulse lately and have started monitoring it. My pulse is always in the 40s or low 50s. I went to the hospital to get some blood work done and have an EKG. They almost didn’t let me go home. My pulse was reading 35, so the doctor sent me to the outpatient department. I wore an all-day heart-rate monitor. It did register in the 30s overnight. I eat right, don’t smoke and am athletic, so my doctor couldn’t recommend anything. Is there a problem with a low pulse? When I get older, how low will it drop? -- C.W. ANSWER: Bradycardia (“brady” for “slow,” “cardia” for “heart”) usually is not a problem in people who have no symptoms. However, heart rates in the 30s make me nervous, and they make most cardiologists start thinking very seriously about pacemakers. My colleague, Dr. Rob Campagna, a cardiologist at Weill-Cornell, tells me that at heart rates in the 30s and below, most people have symptoms, even if they are subtle. He also reminded me that sleep apnea, a condition I have written about several times, is a cause of bradycardia and ought to be considered in people with slow rates at nighttime. The booklet on abnormal heart rhythms explains common heart-rhythm disturbances in greater detail. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Roach -- No. 107W, Box 5364765, 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.

ANSWER: Bee stings (or any of the family Hymenoptera, including wasps, yellow jackets and hornets) cause local reactions in the majority of people. About 10 percent of people have dramatic local reactions. Fortunately, the risk of anaphylaxis -- the severe systemic reaction that is responsible for 100 deaths per year in the U.S. -- is very low in people with local reactions. However, it is still worthwhile to discuss with your doctor or an allergist, because the symptoms of anaphylaxis are sometimes missed. Anyone with a history of systemic reaction should carry (and know how to use!) an epinephrine injection. Removing the stinger as soon as possible, preferably within seconds, is a good idea to prevent the full injection of venom. DEAR DR. ROACH: My husband had shingles about five years ago; when we went in for our flu shot, we were both encouraged to also get the shingles vaccine. Doesn’t he have immunity from actually having had it? We are both 60 years old. -- J.R. ANSWER: Even if you have a history of shingles, you still should get the shingles vaccine, since it is still possible to get shingles again after having it once. Dr. Roach regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but will incorporate them in the column whenever possible. Readers may email questions to ToYourGoodHealth@med. cornell.edu.

North Carolina-Style Barbecued Chicken In North Carolina, where barbecue is taken very seriously, the sauce you prepare depends upon your locale. In the northeastern part of the state, the sauce is made with vinegar and pepper flakes. In the south, a vinegar-and-mustard-based sauce is a must, and in the west, a tangy, tomato-based blend is revered.

1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce 1/3 cup cider vinegar 3 tablespoons honey 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 teaspoon dry mustard 3/4 teaspoon salt 3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke 1 chicken (3 1/2 pounds), cut into 8 pieces and skin removed from all but wings 1. Prepare grill. In nonreactive 2-quart saucepan, heat tomato sauce, vinegar, honey, oil, dry mustard, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and liquid smoke over medium heat to boiling. Boil 2 minutes. Remove from heat. (Makes about 2 cups sauce.) Reserve 1 cup sauce to serve with chicken. 2. Sprinkle chicken with remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Arrange chicken on grill over medium heat and grill, turning occasionally, 15 minutes. Continue to grill, turning and brushing chicken every 2 minutes with barbecue sauce, until juices run clear when thickest part of chicken is pierced with tip of knife, 10 to 15 minutes longer. Serve with reserved barbecue sauce. • Each serving without extra sauce: About 491 calories, 27g total fat (7g saturated), 49g protein, 11g carbohydrate, 154mg cholesterol, 685mg sodium.

Q: Several months ago, my parents agreed they were unable to take care of their house on their own, and moved to an assisted-living community. I took on the task of selling their home so that they can continue to fund their new situation. However, the real-estate broker who I initially contacted said the house is in too poor a condition to sell. I don’t have the time or money to fix up their house. What can I do? -- Charly, via email A: Did the broker give you any indication of why he or she felt the house couldn’t be sold in its current condition? If not, contact the broker to find out what specific things stood out. If you don’t get answers, contact another real-estate firm to come see the house and find out if it’s really unsellable. I don’t have any specifics as to the home’s condition from your letter, but to an agent or broker trying to sell your home, appearance is very important. Is the inside of the home very cluttered? Is there damage to interior walls, visible mold, large cracks or other immediately noticeable issues? Is the exterior of the home in need of paint or repairs to the siding, roof, steps or walkways? These all affect the home’s sale price and can make it sit on the market longer than anyone would like. Houses can sell in any condition -- but the price will take a hit if it needs a lot of work. I vividly recall being shown a triple-decker in East Boston several years ago with foundation problems so bad, the structure was tilting at an alarming angle. The house sold, but at about one-third the average price for homes in that neighborhood. If the house is structurally sound, you may be able to raise its sale price by investing some time and sweat into freshening up its appearance, outside and in. A fresh coat of paint alone can make a home’s value jump, and it’s not a huge investment. Make a plan to do specific things over several weekends, or even one day a week if that’s all the time you have. Enlist family and friends to help. Put together a budget ahead of time so you know how much you can spend on minor repairs. • Spruce up the house exterior by keeping the lawn mowed and the hedges trimmed. Tear out any dead vegetation. Plant a few flowers along the walkway or in front of the house. • De-clutter the entire home interior, too. If there’s a lot of furniture or keepsakes, if the closets are full of clothes, find out what your parents want to keep, sell or distribute. If they can’t come to the house to show you, take pictures of all the items, put them on your laptop and go through them with your parents. • Clean as much as possible: Get dust and cobwebs out of the house, wipe the walls clean and get the kitchen and bathrooms as sparkling as possible. • Give interior walls a fresh coat of paint. Remove peeling or torn wallpaper, and repair small holes and dings in the walls. • Check out websites or books about staging a house. HGTV has some quick tips, as well as a room-byroom staging guide. • Finally, if the house has some major repair issues, such as needing a new roof, foundation or plumbing issues, talk with the broker about them and how these can affect the sale of the home.

HOME TIP: Make de-cluttering and staging a home easier by removing personal items, photos and memorabilia first -- it takes much of the emotion out of the decision-making. Send your questions or home tips to ask@ thisisahammer.com. (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

Quality--Service--Integrity The Three-fold aspect of a successful business Cutting Disability Risk Is No Sweat The British Medical Journal has reported some findings that will cheer quite a number of seniors: We don’t necessarily have to do strenuous workouts to lower our risk of becoming disabled. During the two-year study, 1,680 participants ages 49 to 83 in Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island wore accelerometers to measure the intensity and duration of their daily living activities. Key activities included cooking, grocery shopping, making phone calls, walking across the room, bathing and getting dressed. All of the participants were free of disability but were either at risk for knee osteoarthritis or already had it. The outcome showed that the more time spent in light-intensity activities, the lower the association with disability, as well as reduced progression of existing disability. It appears that the crucial factor is the amount of time spent in activities, not the intensity of an activity. So spending more time during the day simply moving your body may reduce disability. Granted, previous research indicated that 2 1/2 hours a week of moderate to vigorous activity can reduce disability, but some of us just aren’t able to handle moderate exercise, much less vigorous. So, just how long do we need to engage in light activities to give us the edge in lowering our disability risk? That depends on how far you want to reduce your risk. Spending four hours a day will reduce your risk 43 percent. The more minutes, the greater the reduction in risk. But even light housework each day or getting up during TV commercials can cut your risk of becoming disabled by osteoarthritis. All you have to do is move!
