HAM IT UP!

It might be a cut of meat from the thigh of a pig’s hind leg or it might be a person with a bent for the theatrical, just showing off. But “ham” might also be used for the beginning of a number of different terms. While the practical usefulness of this information is questionable, we hope you at least find it... interesting. • “To be or not to be, that is the question.” Whose question was it? This famous phrase was uttered by Prince Hamlet in Shakespeare’s play The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, written around 1602. It chronicles the story of Hamlet’s plot to avenge the murder of his father King Hamlet by his brother Claudius. Hamlet questions whether it is worthwhile to stay alive when life contains so many hardships. Two of the most famous actors to portray Hamlet on stage were Junius Brutus Booth and Edwin Booth, father and brother of John Wilkes Booth, the assassin of our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln. • The word hamadryad can refer to a variety of things. In Greek mythology, it’s a wood nymph who inhabits a tree as its spirit. The nymph only lives as long as the tree. Hamadryad is also another word for the king cobra. Did you know that a cobra bite has a mortality rate of 50-60% if left untreated? One bite from these deadly snakes can kill a human in as little as 30 minutes.

• Are you clumsy, awkward, butterfingered, or lacking dexterity? Then you’re said to be hamfisted.

• The term “ham radio” was first a nickname that mocked amateur radio operators with a 19thPaper Doll Interiors, Inc. century term for being unskilled at something, like 1/3 pg. 4C 13x disc. “ham-fisted” or “ham Later October 13, 2013 Vol.actor.” 9 - No. 42 recognized as a valuable means of global communication in

Everyday CHEAPSKATE

®

I’d Rather Have the Money, Bob

Tidbits of Coachella Valley

due on $50 and a blender.) Every day you should be telling yourself the same thing: I’d rather have the money! Let’s say you see a great new pair of shoes you simply cannot resist. They’re on sale ... this won’t last and it’s such a great deal. No matter how you pay for them (cash, credit, check), it’s a done deal. You’ve got the shoes, they’ve got your money. Here’s where your thinking gets all messed up. Your choices, you believe, are to either: 1) have the shoes or 2) not have the shoes. One is a happy outcome, the other negative, or so you believe. How would your decision change if the salesman had the shoes in one hand and the $50 cash in the other? Would you take the shoes, or the money? That is exactly the choice you have with every purchase. Either you get the -- fill in the blank -- or you get the money. Either you buy the shoes or leave $50 in your bank account. If you could see your lifetime earnings in one big pile of money and how each spending decision diminishes the amount you get to keep, I have a feeling you would take your decision much more seriously. You’d opt to take the money more often than the stuff to clutter your life. The next time you think of spending money --any amount -- ask yourself: Do I really want this, or would I rather have the money?

We have a 7-month-old baby who is learning to crawl. When she starts moving, our 10-year-old Ridgeback/Pit bull mix gets anxious and starts circling her. Every once in a while when she is moving, he will charge at her and nudge her with his nose. Sometimes he will growl when he does that. Mind you, we do not let her crawl around without us there, and we push him away when we see him charging at her. He was OK with her until she started crawling. He follows us with her everywhere. Even when she is sleeping in her crib, he has to be in the room with her. He won’t leave her side. We feel that he is protecting her. When she is crawling, it is a different story. “Barney” has had a tough life. We rescued him at 2 years old, and we were told at the shelter that he was beaten as a puppy. As for the baby, it seems like he is protecting her until she gets on the ground. Should we be worried about him charging her? What does that mean? Is he scared or threatened by her? Any suggestions would be appreciated. If you were on a boat in the middle of the ocean and you noticed a shark circling your boat, would you jump in the water? No. Would you feel scared or threatened? You bet. An animal circling something is in predator mode, and whatever he is circling is potential prey. It is no different when the parties involved are a dog and a baby. Charging can be an aggressive action. Growling is a clear and certain warning of escalating aggression. This couple has a tough decision to make. Their choices are: -- Find a new home for the dog. -- Find a new home for the baby. -- Find a way to keep the two away from each other 100 percent of the time. They were hoping to train the dog and eliminate the behaviors through training. But timing is everything. Baby is already crawling, and Barney is 10 years old and circling. Barnie was fine as long as baby was lying still and quiet in her own crib. Crawling around all over his territory? Baby is a foreign CASEY’S CORNER: Turn to page 13

Your water pitcher was made in the 1950s and would probably be worth $50 to $75.

This mark is on the bottom of a set of eight porcelain cups and saucers that I inherited. They were given to my grandmother in the early 1900s. I think they are close to 100 years old, but I’m not sure. They are decorated with band of multi-colored flowers and gold trim against a white background. Do you know when they were made, anything about the maker, and their value?

“Get Loud” Is Getting Old

Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, frontmen for the rock band KISS and the new Los Angeles KISS Arena Football Team like to remind anyone within listening range that they “Love It Loud.” They also like to declare that if “it’s too loud, you’re This is a photo of a water pitcher too old.” The Who were, at one time, credited in that I have.

These phenomena occur only when the sun, Earth, and moon are all in a straight line and one blocks the light from another. The official term for this configuration of three celestial bodies is syzygy (a choice little tidbit if you’re a Scrabble player!). A solar eclipse will occur during a new moon, when the moon is aligned between the sun and Earth and blocks the sunlight. A lunar eclipse will occur at the time of a full moon, when Earth is between the sun and the moon, and Earth blocks the sun’s light that would normally light up the moon.
