ISLANDS (from page one) its own tectonic plate. Because of this, the title of world’s largest island goes to Greenland, a continental island lying on North America’s continental shelf. • Located between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans, Greenland has an area of 836,330 square miles (2,166,086 sq. km), with 81% of that area covered by an ice sheet. If that ice sheet were to melt away completely, the sea level of the world would rise by more than 23 feet (7 m). Most of the island’s 57,600 people live along the coasts, the only areas that are ice-free. It’s the most sparsely populated country in the world. Although Greenland’s main export is shrimp, the island is rich in natural resources, including zinc, lead, iron, gold, and platinum. Even diamonds are mined there.

● On Jan. 31, 2013, it officially became legal for women to wear pants in Paris. Before that, a law on the books only allowed women to wear pants if they were “holding a bicycle handlebar or the reins of a horse,” or if they had requested special permission from the police to dress like men.

Holiday Leftovers Done Right When it comes to holiday leftovers, many of us secretly relish that slice of cold turkey or ham the next morning, and how reheating those candied yams just enriches their flavor. Before you take that first bite, it’s important to ensure the leftovers you love stay safe, edible and bacteria-free. “They’re a great way to stretch your food budget,” says food scientist Kantha Shelke, Ph.D, a representative for the Institute of Food Technologists. “Properly handling and storing leftovers can help ensure your family gets the most value and enjoyment out of the food you’ve prepared.” Shelke offers these tips for managing leftovers: Refrigeration Of course you know food needs to be preserved in a refrigerator, but does it need to be cooled off first? Your grandmother probably cooled or chilled cooked foods before refrigerating them for a couple of reasons. First, to save energy; hot food would make the fridge work harder. Also, there was a risk of a hot dish breaking when coming in contact with a cold shelf.

I, too, was excited to see E.G.’s great performances on “The Voice” a few weeks back, as I’m sure were a lot of “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure,” “Rugrats” and “The Powerpuff Girls” fans. E.G. was thrilled to get the chance to show off her singing chops, as she told me recently. “It was so much fun. All of these people where wondering who the heck E.G. Daily is. The same woman who does the theme song to ‘Two and a Half Men’? The same woman who was Dottie in ‘Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure’? The same woman who sang on ‘Saturday Night Live’ in the E.G. Daily ‘80s? The same woman who gueststarred on ‘Friends’ as Phoebe’s next songwriting partner? It was like everything came together for me on that show the day I did my blind audition and sang ‘Breathe.’ That was the day for me where, as a

VA Oversight

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee held hearings recently about conference planning spending by officials at the Department of Veterans Affairs. Planning trips to Nashville, Dallas and Orlando, meant to scope out locations for training conferences, turned into lovely, overpriced vacations for some. Here are some of the highlights of testimony given to the committee:  Multiple employees accepted gifts: A big no-no, especially as the gifts appeared to be given in exchange for hotel bookings for conferences. Among the gifts accepted were: complimentary lodging and upgraded rooms, gift baskets, entertainment tickets, spa treatments and a helicopter ride. Employees didn’t deduct the value of the free meals they received, as required. One planner apparently solicited goodies for his family, which he brought to the conference.  Approximately $762,000 was labeled as unnecessary and/or wasteful spending as the amount included promo items and awards, some of which had a value of up to $5,500.  Conference spending was approved based on 3,000 attendees, but only 1,800 showed up. Fact: Conferences that will cost between $20,000 and $500,000 need varying levels of approval in advance, all the way up the chain. Conferences costing more than $500,000 aren’t allowed. How is it then that two Orlando conferences cost $6.1 million? How did the tab for a Las Vegas conference exceed $800,000? One investigator went so far as to say that one specific official lied under oath, a fact bolstered by witnesses. They’d spent $50,000 for a 15-minute parody film about Gen. George Patton, but that official said he had no knowledge of it. He subsequently resigned. At the hearing he repeatedly refused to anADVERTISING PROOF swer questions.

Almost 400 years ago, in the makeshift settlement of Plymouth, Mass., there was no Unleashed by Petco, no feed stores at all. No lowcal salmon treats, no cozy dog beds, no dog booties to protect sensitive paws from rough terrain. The Mayflower dogs earned their keep -- tracking, hunting, protecting the settlement. And for their efforts, they received a great bounty straight from the plate of man. That’s right: Table scraps! “Human” food!

Not so much.

The menu for the first Thanksgiving looked more like this: eel, cod, eagle, crane, seal and venison, with peas, radishes and carrots seasoned with parsnip and olive oil. If today’s holiday feasts in any way mimicked those early festive feasts, there would be no concern about dogs hanging out in the kitchen or scarfing platefuls of leftovers.

I would appreciate any information you might have on the mustache cup seen in this photo.

Mustache cups were popular from around 1850 to 1900. It was fashionable during the Victorian Era for men to have full mustaches. Mustache cups with the half ledge kept mustaches neat, and also kept the mustache wax from melting. Although many were porcelain, some were made of silver or silver plate. The designs were usually transfer prints and not hand-painted. The “168” is a design number. Several porcelain factories in Germany produced a large amount of mustache cups.

to my right hip. So when I get to the top of my swing I think only of bringing that right elbow down to my right hip and although it’s an exaggerated move, it eliminates the over-the-top downswing. It is critical to make sure you have proper weight transfer as you do this and you are not sliding through the ball. Keep in mind that if you do suffer from a consistent over-thetop move, this is a great drill to get you through your round of golf, but it would also be a good idea to see your local PGA or LPGA Professional and work it out for good.
