It was Herb Caen, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle, who made the following sage observation: "Cockroaches and socialites are the only things that can stay up all night and eat anything." The oldest man in the United States is George Francis, who was born on June 6, 1896, which means he was already nearly 50 years old when D-Day occurred. In an interesting coincidence, the United Kingdom's oldest man, Henry Allingham, is also 112 years old -- and was born on the exact same day of the exact same year. Do you suffer from metathesiophobia? That's the scientific appellation given to the fear of change. In 2007, one of the justices serving on the Virginia Supreme Court ordered a plaintiff to drop her pants in court. The purpose was to look at an injury on her leg that was relevant to the case at hand; however, the order was deemed inappropriate and the offending justice was removed from the bench. Every single day, across the globe, there are more than 200 million Internet searches conducted on Google's search engine. If you are like the average American man, over the course of your lifetime you will spend a grand total of five years in the simple act of shaving. No word in the record at hand of how long women spend on the same chore, taking into account the fact that the real estate they cover in their shaving duties is, generally speaking, larger than that covered by men. If you take into account all the sales in the world, there are approximately 50 Bibles sold every minute. *** Thought for the Day: "Not every story has explosions and car chases. That's why they have nudity and espionage." -- Bill Barnes and Gene Ambaum (c) 2009 King Features Synd., Inc.

Fun Things to do Out and About Corvallis 2/19-3/19The Arts Center's Exhibit - J.S. BIRD RECEPTION FEB 20 530PM

Storylines J.S. Bird J.S. Bird is a painter and a story teller; his paintings are filled with personal symbolism and interpretations of myths, allegories and legends. With strong brushstrokes and working on a large scale, he depicts warriors, shamans, animals and inanimate objects referring to both Christian and pagan symbolism, tribal traditions and the human relationship to the earth. Bird visually combines various types of space in a single picture-plane, flat space, illusionary depth and grids. J.S. Bird sees the creation of art as a journey which has led to a better understanding of himself – the process of learning about and creating his work as the path of that journey and the artwork exhibited as the story of that journey. His exhibit Storylines will be

on display at The Arts Center from February 19 – March 19, 2009. The exhibit informs us about connections between Bird’s story and the story of humanity, and through relationships with community and his/ our ancestors. Bird sees the story as his way of praying, healing, his way of penance, and his way of giving thanks to the world. J.S.Bird is proud to call himself a painter, giving him a part in a 30,000 years practice, and he feels honored to follow in the footsteps of so many. He calls himself “dramatically influenced” by art from the past: Paleolithic cave painting, MesoAmerican sculpture and architecture, Oceanic sculpture and early Renaissance fresco’s are a few of his many sources of inspiration. Contemporary artists that he feels a kinship with are Anselm Kiefer, Kiki Smith and Susan Rothenberg. Event Time:12 PM-5 PM 700 SW Madison Ave

Lose Enough Ounces...... You can achieve your goals! We have found a way that is clinically proven to help you control your weight (even while you manage your type 2 diabetes). Researchers released the results of a weight-loss study that found that after 34 weeks, diabetic participants using this portion-controlled meal replacement program lost twice as much weight and were twice as likely to complete the study as participants following a standard food diet based on the dietary guidelines of the American Diabetes Association (ADA). After 34 weeks, 24 % of the users decreased or eliminated their diabetes medication, compared to 0 (zero) percent on the standard food diet. Proper nutrition while allowing healthy weight loss. Discuss calorie levels with your doctor when beginning a diet loss program.
