• Off to a Fresh Start • Get It with Your Groceries

• Herpetologists can tell you that of all the victims of rattlesnake bites, only about half of them actually hear the telltale rattle before being bitten. • It was famed Elizabethan playwright William Shakespeare who made the following sage observation: “Beauty is all very well at first sight; but whoever looks at it when it has been in the house three days?” • The “Guinness Book of World Records” used to have a category for how many live goldfish a person could eat at once, but it was eliminated. Interestingly, the reason for the elimination had nothing to do with cruelty to animals, but rather had to do with the difficulty of preventing cheating. It seems that some would-be competitors were breeding smaller and smaller fish for consumption. • The word “alimony” is derived from the Latin word “alimonia,” which means “nourishment.” • Those who study such things say that the month in which you are most likely to be shot, strangled or poisoned is December. They don’t seem to venture an opinion regarding why, however. • On average, British women are shorter than women in the United States. • Who among us isn’t familiar with the line, “Quoth the Raven, nevermore”? As virtually anyone who made it through middle-school English class can tell you, it’s from Edgar Allan Poe’s classic poem “The Raven.” Considering the ubiquitous nature of the work, though, you might be surprised to learn that Poe earned a grand total of $9 from the first publication of the poem. • The brain of an ostrich is actually smaller than one of its eyes. *** Thought for the Day: “Bureaucrats write memoranda both because they appear to be busy when they are writing and because theby: memos, once Proof created written, immediately become proof that they were busy.” — Charles Proof created Property of by: Peters Phone: 320.0997 Fax: 320.1630 DIZZY STOP - Stuart Barton 760-963-6329 valleybits@msn.com 2009 King Features Synd., Inc. 1/16th pg. 4c© 13x

Beebe share a Super Bowl record. They’ve each been to the big game six times. Unfortunately, both have been on the losing end more often than not. Lodish came up on the short end in his first four trips to the Super Bowl before winning in his final two with the Denver Broncos. Beebe has performed even more poorly, winning only once (as a member of the Green Bay packers) in his six Super Bowl appearances.

OF THINGS

THE SHAPES OF THINGS

• Triangle: Christopher Columbus was the first person to document something unusual about the area now known as the Bermuda Triangle. According to an entry in his log book dated October 11, 1492, Columbus observed “strange lights dancing on the horizon.” His crew also reported bizarre compass readings in the area. Scientists have since explained away Columbus’ fabulous claims, but nevertheless, the seeds of the legend of the Devil’s Triangle had been planted. • Pentagon: When the game of baseball was first invented, home plate was a 12-inch square, just like the bases, but set in place like a diamond. The two sides formed the beginning of the foul lines. In 1887, home plate was redesigned into a pentagon shape in order to aid the umpire in determining whether or not pitches were strikes or balls. • Square: The game show that served as the blueprint for Hollywood Squares was called The Celebrity Game. Hosted by Carl Reiner, the program posted prestigious panelists including Lauren Bacall, Robert Mitchum, and Ronald Reagan. It failed to make a dent in the ratings, however, so it was re-tooled into a celebrity tic-tac-toe game with B-list celebrities like Wally Cox and Charley Weaver. • Circle: Significant portions ofof Significant portions Russia, Finland, Finland,Norway, Denmark, NorSweden, Russia, way, Sweden, and the lie United States and the Canada Canada United the States withinNorth the Arctic Circle, of the Circle.

• Pyramid: The fastest clue-giver to hit the Winner’s Circle on the long-running Pyramid game show is comedian Billy Crystal. In 1977, he set a record of 26 seconds, which still stands. • Octagon: The red stop sign as we know it today became standard in 1954. The Uniform Traffic Control Devices manual specified certain shapes for certain types of signs. Since an octagonshaped sign is more labor- and materialintensive to manufacture, it was assigned to the stop sign, since they’re installed less frequently than any other sign. • Square: In 1982, frumpy highschool freshman Patty Greene was a character on the short-lived sitcom Square Pegs. Her bookish looks and nasal tone excluded her from the popular cliques at school. What a difference 16 years (and a nose job) can make. In 1998, the same actress played a glamorous fashion icon who wrote a steamy, self-help newspaper column on the popular series Sex and the City. That’s right; it’s Sarah Jessica Parker. • Pentagon: Although the Pentagon is physically located in Arlington, Virginia, the USPS classifies it as being in Washington, D.C. The building has six ZIP codes, one for each department within: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Joint Staff, and Secretary of Defense. • Triangle: North Carolina’s Research Triangle is anchored by the cities of Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill.

In the United States, if one person, say, kills another person and the state has the evidence to convict beyond a reasonable doubt, the guilty party goes to jail. The guilty party is not allowed to cavort amongst the rest of us non-killers -- even if he doesn’t do it all the time. Most of us prefer it that way. So when it comes to dogs, why is it that this notion that he doesn’t do it all the time carries so much weight? He growls, but not all the time… He snaps, but not all the time… He bites, but he doesn’t do it all the time… Would you snuggle up on the couch with someone who had stabbed several people -- but over the course of 20 years? Would you invite a killer into your home and explain to your children that there is nothing to be afraid of because he doesn’t do it all the time? The idea is laughable. It’s also reckless and irresponsible -- just like those mothers and fathers who insist on allowing an aggressive dog to cohabit with their small children. A man called a few days ago because his newly adopted dog bit his niece and nephew. He’d had the dog for two days. And the clincher: His wife is expecting. His assessment of the situation: “He doesn’t do it all the time.” This dog has only been in his life for 48 hours. While I suppose technically an average of one bite a day isn’t “all the time,” that’s semantics. What about priorities? I talked with a man last week whose dog is growling and snapping at his kids. When I broke the news that he has to find a new home for the dog, he asked, “What do I tell my kids?” This is a concern for many parents, that their kids won’t understand why Mommy and Daddy are taking their dog away. They don’t want to be the heavy, but playing the heavy from time to time is a part of good parenting. Here’s what you tell your kids: Our dog is not a safe animal. He can have a good home, but he can’t live with children. We’re going to find a better home for him. And then you follow up. Please note: If your dog growls, he’s issuing a warning: One more false move and I’m going to sink

Tidbits of Coachella Valley

Brain Bleed Causes Stroke at Young Age DEAR DR. DONOHUE: When my brother was 47, he died of a stroke caused by bleeding in his brain. He was fine one minute, and the next he was in a coma. An autopsy showed he had had an aneur ysm that ruptured. I have four other brothers and three sisters. Should we all be checked for an aneur ysm? I am now 66. -- W.C.

ANSWER: An aneurysm is a weak spot on an artery wall. It looks like a blister. Aneurysms can develop on any artery, but they are mostly found on the aorta and on brain arteries. Should the aneurysm break, bleeding can be catastrophic. Ruptured brain aneurysms account for 10 percent of strokes, and frequently they occur in younger people, ones not thought to be at risk of a stroke. The story is much like your brother’s. A person, apparently in good health, complains of having the worst headache ever. Then he might lapse into unconsciousness briefly. He might have a seizure. The mortality of a ruptured brain aneurysm is high, more than 50 percent. First-degree relatives of a person who had a brain aneurysm have an increased risk of also having one, but the risk is relatively small, about 1 percent to 4.7 percent. A first-degree relative is a parent, brother, sister or child. The best way to detect a brain aneurysm is a special kind of scan called magnetic resonance angiography. It’s a magnetic resonance imaging -- MRI -- scan with dye injected into the arteries to outline any aneurysm. Most authorities don’t recommend screening first-degree relatives, because their risk is small and the procedure carries an equally small danger. The booklet on stroke explains this common and sometimes crippling condition. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue -- No. 902W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475.

SENIOR NEWS LINE by Matilda Charles © King Features Synd., Inc.

How Old Do You Feel? A show of hands, please: How many of us feel significantly younger than our real age? Many seniors feel, on average, about 13 years younger than we really are. So says a large study that was done over the course of six years with participants aged 70 and older. The mirror told a different story, though. It’s not surprising that women felt closer to their real age when it comes to appearance. We can blame Madison Avenue for that one, I’m sure. In certain circles there’s a negative stereotype about older women, and unfortunately some of us buy into it. Men don’t seem to have the same self-image problems, according to the study. And given the same age between men and women, women perceived themselves to be on average four years older than the men. By the end of the study, however, it was the men whose satisfaction with themselves decreased more than the women’s did. Perceptions in general changed as the study went on. By the end of the study, many reported a decrease of a few years in the difference between real and perceived age. There was a link between feeling young and healthy and living a long life, of course. Those who had a positive attitude about aging in general had the greatest discrepancy between real and perceived age. Those who started the study with health issues perceived their age to be closer to what it actually was. I’m not sure I like the attitude of one of the researchers, though. She was quoted as saying that the 13 years is an “illusion.” Of course it is. But so are the images that are put before us by Madison Avenue. As long as we’re happy and healthy, does it matter what “number” we assign ourselves?

The song is called “Bad Day,” and it’s by Canadian singer Daniel Powter. It was a single from his second album, “Daniel Powter” (2005). The song grew in popularity in the States when it was played during the farewell video package during the fifth season of “American Idol”; as contestants were voted off the show, the song was played to a montage of memories of their time spent on the show. Daniel, who turns 38 in February, released his third album, “Under the Radar,” in 2008. ***

He also had a history of seizures, which may or may not have been related to his illness. The Travoltas were celebrating the new year in the Bahamas when, according to preliminary reports, Jett suffered a seizure in the bathroom and fell and hit his head on the tub. He was found by a caretaker and rushed to the hospital, but the doctors were unable to revive him. John and Kelly have released this statement: “Jett was the most wonderful son that two parents could ever ask for and lit up the lives of everyone he encountered.

my teeth into something. Petting a growling dog is about as intelligent as approaching a rattling rattle snake. With all things in nature, appreciate the warnings for what they are. But there are those who would rather wait for the bite. For those parents who fall into this category, I offer this food for thought: 1) That’s child endangerment and you could be prosecuted should something happen to your child. 2) If you wait until the dog bites your child, he or she is going to feel like it’s all their fault when the dog is subsequently removed from the home or, as they say in the news, “destroyed.” It’s the strangest thing when I advise a parent to protect their child and they get mad at me. But it doesn’t always happen that way. From a reader: “You called on Sunday morning and said we should not keep our dog (we have five kids, and our dog is showing aggression toward their friends). As difficult as this was to hear, you made a lot of sense and we are scheduling an appointment to take her back to ARF. Perhaps you could give us some guidance on how to select the appropriate dog/ puppy for our family and how to train it properly so that we will have success next time. We don’t want to have our hearts broken again; we want to do it right. Thank you so much for caring enough to respond so quickly.” The proof is in the pudding. The hard thing to hear is sometimes the right thing to do. Woof!

The PGA Tour average for greens hit in regulation is 62%. This means that the best players in the world are going to be chipping 6 to 7 times in a round. If you are an 18 handicap, you might find yourself chipping on practically every hole, so chipping it close will help you have shorter putts. Chipping is nothing more than the extension of a putting stroke. It is very important to maintain the angles that you set up at address throughout the swing. The key to good chipping is, first and is foremost, to lean e the shaft towarde the target creat-n u ing a straight n of a line going up the e leading arm ande maintaining thatd a angle throughout n the swing. haft NoticeAsthat I I make e. In the have the shaft foot angle matchingve my left arm (red line) and I hold that angle in my back swing. It’s key to push off the forward swing with the right foot, turning the right hip and knee to give the club support for controlling the contact and direction of the ball.The number one fault in most golfers is breaking this important straight shaft angle by flipping with the wrist. If your goal is lower scores, work on your chipping! Better chipping will leave you shorter putts for fewer strokes taken on the green.

Tidbits of Coachella Valley

clothes were big news back in the 60s, the epitome of the now obsolete idea of “throwaway chic.” Even artist Andy Warhol turned fashion designer, coming up with pop art to wear once and toss. Nobody bought the idea back then, but it was deja vu for visitors at Heimtextil 2009, the giant textile show in Frankfurt, Germany. York Wallcoverings, the American manufacturer, filled its booth with mannequins wearing “clothes” copied from the latest Vogue and InStyle; only these high-fashions were concocted from York’s designer wallpapers -- it’s reported -- hand stitched into gathers, ruffles and flourishes with “all the detail devoted to haute couture.”

Use Space Effectively to Add More Room to Older Homes Q:

We are appalled to find ourselves living in a neighborhood of tear-downs. Our house -- like many of those being razed -- was built a half-century ago when the area was working class. We also need more living space, but can’t decide how to add it. Do you have any suggestions?

***

Q:

We have a large entryway stair hall with a curved wall by the stairs. There’s enough space for a narrow love seat, but will it look funny with its back against the curve?

A:

Arm yourself with a good architect. He or she can survey your options and make professional recommendations on how to best enhance your specific property. Meanwhile, you’re to be congratulated for standing firm in your “working-class” footprint. After the bloated size and embarrassing aesthetics of America’s McMansion phase, we are rediscovering the truth -- that less is indeed more. Here’s inspiration from the pages of a new book that celebrates the smaller, smarter home, “The Simple House” by architect Sarah Nettleton (The Taunton Press). Subtitled “The Luxury of Enough,” her book shows why and how to think through one’s space intelligently.

A:

Not necessarily, especially if you provide a logical backdrop for the furniture grouping, which

Vol. V Issue 5

could also include a lamp table or an area rug to focus it. Take a look at the design book of Harry Heissmann (of Albert Hadley Inc., New York), who was charged with dressing the inner staircase of the Manhattan mansion where the Holiday House designer show house was held (benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure cancer fund). Heissmann backed his hallway arrangement -- seating, tables and lamps -- with an impressive eight panel, 8-foot mirror that ironed out the curved wall and anchored the seating area. Pure glam, too. Don’t fret if you don’t have such a show-stopper: You can create the same effect with panel doors, hinged together and covered with mirror tiles, available at any home store.
