Hissing

Marshmallows can soothe a sore throat.

Submitted by Richard Collins

Once upon a time there was a family of snakes who lived in a pit. All day long, the little snakes would crawl around hissing in the pit. Hiss, hiss, hiss. One day, feeling adventurous, a little snake crawled out of the pit and into the pit of Mr. Hitt. He was having a great time hissing in Mrs. Hitt’s pit until Mrs. Hitt saw him and, quite unneighborly, told him to go hiss in his own pit. When he got back to his own pit, he was crying, and he told his mother what had happened. She got really mad and said, "Oh, that snooty Mrs. Hitt. I can remember when she didn’t have a pit to hiss in."

Lyndon Johnson walked out of the White House for the short helicopter ride to Andrews Air Force Base and Air Force 1. There were three helicopters on the White House lawn; one for the president and two escorts. The president started walking toward one of the escorts. The marine beside him said, "Sir, that’s not your helicopter." Johnson looked at him and said, "Son, they’re all my helicopters." Uncle Andy’s Digest ...witThravis & Jimbo

The two hemispheres of a dolphin's brain work independently. For 8 hours, the entire brain is awake. The left side then sleeps for 8 hours. When it wakes up, the right side sleeps for 8 hours. Thus, the dolphin gets 8 hours of sleep without ever having to stop physically.

New Recruit Submitted by Jimbo

As the family gathered for a big dinner together, the youngest son announced that he had just signed up at an army recruiter's office. There were audible gasps around the table, then some laughter, as his older brothers shared their disbelief that he could handle this new situation. "Oh, come on, quit joking," snickered one. "You didn't really do that, did you?" "You would never get through basic training," scoffed another. The new recruit looked to his mother for help, but she was just gazing at him. When she finally spoke, she simply asked, "Do you really plan to make your own bed every morning?"

Route 66 In 1926, Route 66 was commissioned as the first continuous highway from the Midwest to California. Route 66 crosses 8 states and 3 time zones.

In 1965, three years after construction began, the Gateway Arch was completed in St. Louis, Missouri. The arch, which is this nation's tallest monument, is as tall as it is wide. Designed by Finnish-born, American-educated architect Eero Saarinen, it was erected to commemorate President Thomas Jefferson's Louisiana Purchase of 1803 and to celebrate St. Louis' central role in the rapid westward expansion that followed.

Railroad Facts The standard U.S. railroad width (4 feet, 8.5 inches) is directly derived from the width of Roman war chariots. This is because the English expatriates who designed the U.S. railroad system based their measurements on the pre-railroad tramways built in England. Those tramways were built using the same tools used to build wagons, which were also that width. The reason wagons were built to that width is because otherwise, they would break during long treks across the old English roads. Those roads--built by the Romans--were full of ruts carved out by Roman war chariots. All Roman chariots were built to a standard width of 4 feet, 8.5 inches, and so English wagons were built so that their wheels would fit into those ruts.

The USSR set off the largest nuclear explosion in history, detonating a 50 megaton bomb (2600 times the Hiroshima bomb) in an atmospheric test over the Novaya Zemla Islands, October 30 1961. Uncle Andy’s Digest ...witThravis & Jimbo

Look at the number four on a clock face that uses Roman numerals. If the clock is made correctly then the Roman numeral four is wrong. The standard and correct way to write the Roman numeral four is "IV," but the traditional way to show it on a clock face is "IIII." Legend has it that a clock was made for a British king. When he saw the clock he mis- informedly corrected the clock maker who re-did the clock face to show a "IIII" instead of an "IV" thus not risking offending the king. Other clock makers followed suit so as not to embarrass the king. Now it is the traditional way to make clocks.

According to Genesis 1:20-22 the chicken came before the egg.

Peppe Goes Teen Birthday Boy

Until Sunday, September 3rd, 1967, driving was done on the lefthand side on roads in Sweden. The conversion to right-hand was done on a weekend at 5 p.m. All traffic stopped as people switched sides. This time and day were chosen to prevent accidents where drivers would have gotten up in the morning and been too sleepy to realize 'this' was the day of the changeover.

Speed Limit

Favorite Irish Sayings: May the sun always shine on your windowpane.

Submitted by Jimbo

Safety is a major concern at the manufacturing company where I work. So I'm constantly preaching caution to the workers I supervise. "Does anyone know," I asked a few guys, "what the speed limit is in our parking lot?" The long silence that followed was interrupted when one of them piped up. "That depends. Do you mean coming in to work or leaving?" The US federal income tax was first enacted in 1862 to support the Union's Civil War effort. It was eliminated in 1872, revived in 1894 then declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court the following year. In 1913, the 16th Amendment to the Constitution made the income tax a permanent fixture in the US tax system.

••• --- ••• S.O.S. doesn't stand for "Save Our Ship" or "Save Our Souls". It was chosen by an 1908 international conference on Morse Code because the letters S and O were easy to remember and just about anyone could key it and read it, S = dot dot dot, O = dash dash dash.

Alan Reed, the original voice of Fred Flintstone, uttered the famous “yabba-dabba-doo” in the first episode.

Canadian photographer Patrice Laroche surely will have no trouble explaining to his kids about the birds and the bees. During his wife Sandra Denis’ pregnancy, the artist created hilarious explanatory photo series titled “How to Make a Baby”. The creative couple planned and carried out their project throughout the whole period of 9 months, taking pictures in the exact same settings as Sandra’s belly expanded. The pregnancy saga of Sandra and Patrice basically denounces all the traditional cabbage and the stork stories.

The magic word "Abracadabra" was originally intended for the specific purpose of curing hay fever.

In 1920, baseball organizers outlawed all pitches involving any tampering with the ball, including using sandpaper, emery boards, or spit. The spitball was banned because pitchers could not control it. The spit would alter the center of gravity of the ball and it would be hard to hit, but it almost never made it in the strike zone.

Last month I celebrated my two year anniversary with my boyfriend, Alex. Like most couples we bought each other gifts for the occasion. After being around me for two years, Alex is well-aware of my obsession with cats and crazy sweaters. I am the proud owner of a travel mug that says ‘Crazy Cat Lady’ on it and I will show anyone around me (willing or unwilling) photos of my cat, Theb, which I keep on my cell phone. And as for the sweaters, I always wear overthe-top, colorful, or crazy clothes that most people I know describe as ‘old lady sweaters’. Yes, cats and sweaters are two of my

favorite things. So imagine the enjoyment I felt when I opened up my gift from Alex and saw that it was a cat sweater! That’s right, a grey crew-neck sweater with a picture of a cat wearing sunglasses on it. And written on the sweater were the words ‘Cattitude, deal with it’. A cat sweater with a pun on it? I couldn’t have been happier! I gave Alex a huge hug, threw the sweater on over the other sweater I had already been wearing, and couldn’t stop smiling. “How did you think of something so perfect?” I asked him, thinking about how lucky I was to have found someone who knew me so well, and how happy I was to be with someone so sweet.

Christmas Cards In 1843, the first Christmas card was printed in England for Sir Henry Cole. He was busy man who wanted to save time in his own Christmas letters, but was also interested in encouraging the expansion of the postal system. 1000 copies of the card were sold at one shilling each. It was not until the 1860s that the production of cards accelerated, with cheaper printing methods. Then in 1870, the Post Office introduced a half penny stamp for sending cards.

Madeleine Brodeur, Allison Caron & Christine Amaya The Village St. Café has opened in the heart of Lisbon. They are located at 12 Village Street and occupy a building that comes with lots of history. It was once the town’s library, an accountant’s office, a karate studio, and even a meeting hall for the Boy Scout back in the 50’s. The café is a cozy place that seats 20 people in the dining room and another eight around the bar surrounding an open kitchen. Upon entering, you can enjoy a small quiet area with two comfy chairs where you can sit and sip on a cup of Green Mountain Coffee, with books and magazines for all ages. Owner, Christine Amaya, who also has owned Miller’s Variety in Lisbon Falls for over five years, knew this would be not only a great opportunity, but also great for the Lisbon community. Chris shared with UAD, “ My family was raised just a few feet from where the café is. I love meeting the people who knew my grandparents or went to school with my mother and uncles.” It serves as a great place for people to meet up with old friends and share stories of their life in Lisbon. The café is currently open Monday through Saturday from 6am to 2pm. They serve a variety of homemade foods, including soups, corn beef hash and muffins. There are no fried foods on the menu.

Odd Phrases

12 + 3 - 4 + 5 + 67 + 8 + 9 = 100

Where did they come from? If You Can Do It, I’ll Eat My Hat!: means 'I don’t believe you can do it.' The original word hat in this expression was ‘hatte’ which is actually an Old English dish of eggs, veal, dates and salt. Over time the meaning of the phrase evolved into the ridiculous proposition it sounds like.

Never give up! "With your voice, nobody is going to let you broadcast." Don Hewitt, producer of 60 Minutes to an unknown Barbara Walters. Delaware is not an Indian name. The Native American name is Lenape, meaning ‘the people.’ The name given to them by the white settlers was Delaware, which came from the river along which these indigenous people lived. The river was named for Lord Thomas West, Baron De La Waar, the colonial governor of Virginia in the early 1600s.

Tantalize: Tantalus was a Greek king who was punished by the other gods for tying to deceived them. He was forced to stand in a pool of water up to his chin, but when he lowered his head to drink, the water receded just out of reach. The same was true with food. The tantalizing food and water filled him with desire, but was completely unobtainable.

The preacher was wired for sound with a lapel mike, and as he preached, he moved briskly about the platform, jerking the mike cord as he went. Then he moved to one side, getting wound up in the cord and nearly tripping before jerking it again. After several circles and jerks, a little girl in the third pew leaned toward her mother and whispered, "If he gets loose, will he hurt us?"

Out ’n About with Miami Mike Uncle Andy’s Digesters welcome to March! It’s the end of winter and the beginning of spring! The days are getting longer and the snow banks are getting shorter. Anyone with a heartbeat waits with eager anticipation for the NCAA’s March Madness Basketball as well as St. Patrick’s Day. What’s not to love days and days of nonstop basketball entertainment and none of that Primma Donna, I’m the center of the Universe garbage these overpaid pro athletes give us. I’m talking about fast passionate competition where every player on the court has more heart than their chest can contain. I’m talking basketball that would keep Jay Mitchell and I glued to the TV for hours on end despite countless attempts from Bret and Bitzy to distract us. Not even the perfectly portioned snacks provided by Mrs. Mitchell, which always had the optimum amount of nutrition growing boys need without an overindulgence of preservatives. Now be sure to keep track of the days because you don’t want to be waist deep in beverage cans searching for 2013 on your Mayan calendar and completely miss St. Patrick’s Day. I mean really I don’t believe it gets too much better than drinking green adult beverages. St.

So take advantage of this great holiday and celebrate the authentic Irish way at Irish Twins Pub! They are right on Main St. in Lewiston and while you are there tell them Miami mike sent ya! They will surly reply “Who?” or perhaps they may even charge you double, so maybe just show up and tip a greenie back for me! Now with a great night out comes a rough morning in. Rather than attempting to finish off the box of stale generic “Fruity O’s” get out to Eggceptional. They are located in Poland

on Rt 26, right on the way to the Oxford Casino. Don’t worry if your morning wakeup call does not come until mid morning they have breakfast food on the menu all the time!

For now, Do Svidaniya Digesters, which is Russian for Goodbye, don’t get hung up in the Red Sox Spring training record it doesn’t count!

Memory Technique

Michael Nesmith's (The Monkees) mother, Bette Nesmith, invented Liquid Paper.

Submitted by Jimbo

A new preacher had just begun his sermon. He was a little nervous and about ten minutes into the talk his mind went blank. He remembered some advice they gave him in seminary school for when a situation like this arose -- repeat your last point. Often this will help you remember what should come next. So he gave it a try. "Behold, I come quickly," he said. Still his mind was blank. So he tried again, "Behold, I come quickly!" Still nothing. He tried once more, this time with so much vehemence that he tripped over his microphone wire and fell off the stage, right into the lap of a little old lady in the front row. The young preacher was very embarrassed and tried to apologize, and the woman replied, "That's all right, young man. It was my fault...I should have gotten out of the way. You told me three times you were coming!" Out of all the Hollywood movies ever made, only 5% are directed by women. Uncle Andy’s Digest ...witThravis & Jimbo

His invention was introduced as Coppertone Suntan Cream in 1944. The working section of the piano is called the action.

In 1964, one Louisiana high school basketball team beat another 211 to 29, the most lopsided high school basketball game ever played. In 1803, the U.S. bought the Louisiana Territory from France. At a cost of less than $20 per square mile, it was one of history's greatest real estate deals. A three-legged dog walks into a saloon in the Old West. He slides up to the bar and announces: "I'm looking for the man who shot my paw."
