• Milne’s son Christopher Robin was born in 1920, and became the model for the character in the Pooh books. For his first birthday, Christopher, who was mostly called Billy, received a stuffed bear from Harrod’s Department Store in London from his mother. The bear was given the name Edward, and sometimes Big Bear, or Teddy Bear. A.A. Milne first wrote of Edward in a poem published in a 1924 edition of Punch, and later in a collection of children’s poetry called “When We Were Very Young.” • During World War I, in faraway Winnipeg, Winnie the Pooh: Turn to page 3

• Victorian flower dictionaries tell us that a rose’s color determines its meaning. The red rose has always been a universal symbol of passionate love, while yellow roses indicate friendship, joy, and caring. Pink roses symbolize grace, while peach represent modesty, and orange suggest fascination. • The world’s tallest rose bush on record can be found in Morristown, New Jersey, a plant that exceeds 18 feet in height. The largest rose bush can be found in Tombstone, Arizona, just blocks from the famed OK Corral. The original root of this Lady Bank’s thornless rose bush came over from Scotland in 1885. Its trunk diameter is nearly 6 feet, and the bush covers 9,000 square feet, large enough to shelter a crowd of 150 people. The world’s oldest living rose can be found growing on the wall of Germany’s Cathedral of Hildesheim. The plant has been documented since 815 A.D.

When the train stopped in Ontario, Colebourn bought a small female black bear cub from a hunter who had killed its mother. He paid $20 for little cub that he named Winnipeg, nicknaming her Winnie.

• The gloomy, pessimistic gray donkey in the Pooh tales is named Eeyore, who lives in an area marked as “Eeyore’s Gloomy Place: Rather Boggy and Sad” on the map in the book. His name comes from the braying sound made by a donkey, “Hee-haw.” Eeyore always seems to be losing his tail, and at one point, it was being used by Owl as a bell-pull beside his door after he found it on the ground.

• Although Milne’s books suggest he had a close, affectionate relationship with his only son, in fact, Christopher was brought up by a nanny, and was taken downstairs three times a day to visit his parents. He was sent to boarding school for his education.

give? Going into debt to help another is not a loving thing to do. Do not do too much to help. This is the most difficult for me to pen because I am the queen of doing too much. My motive is one of generosity and love. But that help becomes inappropriate when it stifles financial maturity or precludes the need for my sons to become selfreliant. How much is too much? I cannot make that determination for you. Your resources should be your first consideration, and then you must consider each situation carefully. There’s a lesson to be learned from the way steel is made strong. It must be stressed sufficiently to become tempered. The same goes for the human spirit: The stresses of life make us stronger and prepare us for the future. Shielding our adult children from financial stress is not always the most loving thing to do. In the end, it might do more harm than good. * * * Mary invites questions, comments and tips at mary@everydaycheapskate.com, or c/o Everyday Cheapskate, 12340 Seal Beach Blvd., Suite B-416, Seal Beach, CA 90740.

psychological thriller that exposes a far more sinister man behind the hero MacDonald portrays. *** When will “Casual” return to Hulu? -- Paul F., via email

Q: A:

The delightfully snarky-yet-serious dramedy will return for its third season on Tuesday, May 3, for 13 all-new episodes. Michaela Watkins, Tommy Dewey, Tara Lynne Barr and Nyasha Hatendi are all returning, with this season following the aftermath of Chris’ death and Valerie’s decision to move out of Alex’s house. This propels the Valerie/Alex/Laura trio to rebel, exploring different jobs, partners and unfulfilled passions. As they adjust to a new normal, they try to maintain boundaries without reverting to the comfort of their co-dependency. * * *

TULIP

One Wrong Doesn’t Make a Right, Either It is a well-known mathematical fact that two wrongs don’t equal a right. Lesser known is the surprising notion that one doesn’t, either. The following letter from a reader culminates with the explosive assertion of a single disturbing wrong:

Brute force is never an effective teaching tool. Most people, if told their child’s eye had been blackened not by a bully but by his English teacher because of his inability to spell, would run to the nearest happy hour full of ACLU lawyers and scream “civil rights violation!” And the teacher’s defense would be embarrassingly lackluster: “No, I never taught him how to spell, but I left the dictionary right there on his desk.” Dogs are not born housebroken. It is not a matter of better breeding, bad genes or big bucks. To date, with all that modern technology affords we humans and our canine counterparts, no breeder has been able to deliver into the world an inherently potty-trained dog. Or child. If you want your dog to perform his bodily functions out of doors, you have to let him know that. This is done through training. Training is essentially the creation of a shared, albeit limited, language between man and beast. The good news is that housebreaking is easy to achieve and takes less than a week to accomplish. The bad news is that a lot of people would prefer not to make even that minimal effort. Unfortunately, the headache that results packs enough of a wallop to lead a person down the wrong path -- toward abuse, squalor and abandonment. The basics of housebreaking boil down to the regulation of three components: food, water and walks. If you and your pooch are steadfast in your adherence to what I call the Feed-Water-Walk regiCasey's Corner: Turn to page 10

“I just got this dog from the pound. She eats well and sleeps with me, and she’s very intelligent. But she keeps leaving me little poops and puddles in the house. I leave the door open and she still poops in the house, right by an open door. She is 4 years old or so, and the pound has no history on her. I have not beaten her yet, but I am about to.”

Medicare Welcome vs. Wellness Visits Those who are new to Medicare have to sort out a lot of information in a hurry. One area of confusion is the difference between the Welcome to Medicare doctor visit and the annual Wellness Visit. You get the Welcome visit once, in the first 12 months of your enrollment in Medicare. You get the annual Wellness visit a year later and every year after that. Here is what to expect from your initial Welcome visit: Counseling, mostly. Your weight, exercise, diet, current drugs, blood pressure, possible depression, general physical condition, family medical history and more will be discussed in a 45-minute visit. They might do a basic vision test and a body mass index. A plan will be provided for screenings, shots or tests. The Wellness visit doesn’t cost you anything. If you’re expecting a full physical at that time, you won’t get it. Your annual Wellness visit: You qualify for this appointment if you’ve had Part B for longer than 12 months. You’ll have to fill out a health-risk questionnaire as a means for the medical staff to develop a prevention plan for you. If you have the Original Medicare, you won’t pay anything for the annual exam, unless additional tests are per-

formed at the same time and those tests aren’t covered. Some of those tests that might be requested include prostate cancer, HIV, colorectal cancer, cardiovascular disease, breast cancer, diabetes and glaucoma. Certain tests and screenings are free. Be sure to ask for the FREE Medicare Wellness visit ... not a physical. If you end up with a full physical (depending how you ask for the appointment), thinking it’s a free Wellness visit, you could well be charged for various tests. On the other hand, if you do want a full head-to-toe physical, be specific because you won’t get it at the Wellness visit either.

SOCIAL SECURITY by Tom Margenau

Social Security Update for 2017

Tidbits of Coachella Valley

receive. There are millions of Social Security beneficiaries who get much more than that, primarily because they work well past age 66. And I must mention that I am not going to get into the muddled mess involving Medicare Part B premiums. (They are usually deducted from Social Security checks.) It’s a topic I’ve discussed in past columns, and no doubt will do in future columns. Suffice to say, for some people, their premiums will go up, possibly negating the small 0.3 COLA increase. For others, they will stay the same. Another measuring stick, called the national wage index, is used to set increases to other provisions of the law that impact Social Security beneficiaries and taxpayers. Specifically, this includes increases in the amount of wages or selfemployment income subject to Social Security tax, the amount of income needed to earn a quarter of coverage and the Social Security earnings penalty limits. The Social Security taxable earnings base will go up from $118,500 this year to $127,200 in 2017. In other words, people who earn more than $127,200 next year will no longer have Social Security payroll taxes deducted from their paychecks once they hit that threshold. This has always been a very controversial provision of the law. (Bill Gates pays the same amount of Social Security tax as his plumber!) Normally, I would bet my next pension check that any eventual Social Security reform package would include an increase in that wage base. But now with the anti-tax Republicans controlling both houses of Congress and the White House, I’m not so sure. Most people need 40 Social Security work credits to be eligible for monthly benefit checks from the system. In 2016, people who were working earned one credit for each $1,260 in Social Security taxable income. But no one earns more than four credits per year. In other words, once you made $5,040, your Social Security record has been credited with the maximum four credits or quarters of coverage. Next year, the one credit limit goes up to $1,300, meaning you will have to earn $5,200 in 2017 before you get the maximum four credits as-

It has been my custom for most of the past 18 years to write a year-end column that summarizes the Social Security changes and updates scheduled to take place the following year. Almost all Social Security beneficiaries are familiar with the most popular and publicized upcoming change: the increase in monthly benefit checks for 2017 due to the automated cost-of-living adjustment. In fact, Social Security recipients have probably already received a letter from the Social Security Administration telling them of the expected increase. I know my wife and I got our notices. All Social Security checks are going up 0.3 percent in 2017. The COLA is based on something called the Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers. This is the official measuring stick SSA has used to determine COLAs for the past 44 years. If you want to learn more about this measure, check out the website of the folks who maintain it: the Bureau of Labor Statistics. I always dread mentioning COLAs in this column because every single time I do, I am flooded with emails from readers complaining that the increase is not enough. (Maybe not unexpectedly, not once in 18 years has anyone ever written to me to say that the COLA increase was too high!) Yet here’s the rub: Many economists and social planners believe Social Security COLAs are too generous! (I’ve explained why in past columns, but don’t have the space to get into that argument today.) That’s why most discussions of long-range reform for Social Security include proposals to reduce cost-of-living increases. Due to these increases, the average monthly retirement check will be $1,360 in 2017, a $5 increase from the 2016 level. The maximum Social Security check for a worker Tell them you retiring at age 66 next saw their ad year will be $2,687, compared to $2,639 in 2016. (I 1.

signed to your Social Security account. People under age 66 who get Social Security retirement or survivor’s benefits but who are still working are subject to limits in the amount of money they can earn and still receive all their Social Security checks. That limit was $15,720 this year and will be $16,920 in 2017. For every two dollars a person earns over those limits, one dollar is withheld from his or her monthly benefits. There is a higher earnings threshold in the year a person turns 66 that applies from the beginning of the year until the month the person turns 66. (The income penalty goes away once a person reaches that full retirement age.) That threshold goes up from $41,880 in 2016 to $44,880 next year. A couple other Social Security provisions are also impacted by inflationary increases. For example, people getting disability benefits who try to work can generally continue getting those benefits as long as they are not working at a “substantial” level. In 2016, the law defined substantial work as any job paying $1,130 or more per month. Next year, that substantial earnings level increases to $1,170 monthly. Finally, the Supplemental Security Income basic federal payment level for one person goes up from $733 this year to $735 in 2017. SSI is a federal welfare program administered by SSA, but it is not a Social Security benefit. It is paid for out of general revenues, not Social Security taxes. * * * If you have a Social Security question, Tom Margenau has the answer. Contact him at thomas.margenau@ comcast.net.

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am 83 and recently began having sciatica pain down my right thigh. My doctor recommended using a hot-water bottle. Are there any painkillers I can use? Are there any other products I can use? -- G.L.B. ANSWER: The sciatic nerve is a very large nerve that runs down the back of the leg. When the nerve is pressed on in the back -from a herniated disk in the back or from spinal stenosis -- there can be intense pain that feels like it is coming from the back, or anywhere from the top of the thigh to the foot. Since other nerves besides the sciatic can be affected, the condition is called lumbar radiculopathy. A herniated disk is when the shockabsorbing material in between the vertebrae comes out into the space where the nerve root is, on its way out of the spinal column toward the leg. Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the bony canal through which the nerve travels. In most cases, people get better within four to six weeks. Standard pain medications, such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen, can be helpful. If pain is severe and not respon-

ornate handle. The inside of the bowl is decorated with hand-painted daisies. My great aunt gave the basket to me years ago. She told me it was a bride’s basket that was given to her grandmother around 1900. Unfortunately, I never asked her for any information about its histor y, and I don’t even know what the term “bride’s basket” means. It will stay in the family and be passed on to my daughter. Can you tell something about it?

by Anne McCollam

Vintage Phonograph Blossoms

Bride’s baskets were popular Victorian wedding gifts.

Q:

I have enclosed a photo of a ver y old Edison phonograph that is in good working condition. It has an oak cabinet with a hand crank. I also have about a dozen tubular-shaped phonograph records. There is a label on the cabinet that says “Edison Standard Phonograph.” The records are in cardboard containers and marked with the words “Edison Gold Moulded Records -- Echos All Over the World.” The phonograph serial number is #6825841, and the patent date is 11-171903. Can you tell me anything about my phonograph and its value?

A:

Based on your description, you have a Victorian silverplate bride’s basket with a cranberry glass insert. Although the term “bride’s basket” is used by collectors today, to Victorians they were berry baskets or fruit baskets. It was traditional in the late 1800s to the very early 1900s to present a bride with a beautiful berry basket. Most were silverplate or sterling with glass inserts. Some were just silver without inserts. The baskets were used as centerpieces to serve fruit or cake. The silverplate holder for yours was made by Pairpoint Manufacturing Co., which was in business from 1880 to 1958. Your bride’s basket would probably be worth $225 to $325. * * * Address your questions to Anne McCollam, P. O. Box 247, Notre Dame, IN 46556.

Vol. XIII Issue 2

Rest In Peace, Craig Much smarter men and women than me have addressed the subject, but it never makes sense that so often those among us who seem to have the most life are taken away from us too soon. Craig Sager will no doubt be remembered for his striking attire, but it would be such a shame if all we remember about this great sportscaster was his taste in ties. He now joins the ranks of the immortals, another victim to cancer, another life that seemed to end too suddenly, and the void left is far too noticeable for his family, his friends, and in this case, the fans. In the end, Sager gave his own eulogy, and it is something that bears repeating. Rest in peace, Craig. In Sager's words, “When you are diagnosed with a terminal disease like cancer, leukemia, your perception of time changes. When doctors tell you have three weeks to live, do you try to live a lifetime of moments in three weeks? Or do you say, ‘To hell with three weeks?’ When doctors tell you your only hope of survival is 14 straight days of intense chemotherapy, 24 hours a day, do you sit there and count down the 336 hours? "Or do you see each day as a blessing? Time is something that cannot be bought. It cannot be wagered with God. And it is not an endless supply. Time is simply how you live your life. "I’m not an expert on time, or on cancer, or on life itself. I’m a kid from the small Illinois town of Batavia, who grew up on the Chicago Cubs, and made sports his life’s work, although there’s never been a day where it actually seemed like work. I have run with the bulls in Pamplona. I have raced with Mario Andretti in Indianapolis. I have climbed the Great Wall of China. I have jumped out of airplanes over Kansas. I have wrestled gators in Florida. I have sailed the ocean with Ted Turner. I have swam the oceans in the Caribbean. And I have interviewed Gregg Popovich. Mid-game. Spurs down seven. “If I’ve learned anything through all of this, it’s that each and every day is a canvas, waiting to be painted -- an opportunity for love, for fun, for living, for learning. To those of you out there who are suffering from cancer, facing adversity, I want you to know that your will to live and to fight cancer can make all the difference in the world. The way you think influences the way 2 EGAP RE 91 KEEW you feel, and the way you feel determines how TRIVIA AIVIRT 01 YAM - 4 you act.”
