                                          IT'S NATIONAL SMILE WEEK!                 Smiley, Cartoon Smile design, logo Illustration           editor's note poka-dot

It seems like there's a week for everything, doesn't it? I don't know why this particular week has been designated as Smile Week, but maybe it's a good reminder that all of us should smile more. Did you know that when you're feeling down, just the physical act of smiling can lift your spirits? A study conducted by the British Dental Health Foundation showed smiling to dramatically improve one's mood,....even if you're faking it! The study also showed that a smile can improve your confidence, help you make friends and help you to succeed in your career. (Research  has even shown that  waitresses who smile receive greater tips!) It's very hard to feel stressed, angry or worried when you're smiling.  Smiling  releases tension, helps you stay positive, boosts your immune system,  helps you relax and...even makes you look younger! Now if that's not a reason to smile, what is?

WRAPPING UP THE OLYMPICS WITH SOME TRIVIA

THE FIRST OLYMPICS                                       

For the past two weeks, we have been inundated with Olympics information and you probably think you've heard everything,...but maybe not. For instance, we still have written records of the first Olympic Games that were held in 776 BC. At these games, a naked runner by the name of Coroebus, a cook from Elis, won the only event at the Olympics. This 'stade' run (from which the word Stadium comes) of 210 yards made him the very first Olympic champion in history.

GOLD MEDALS AREN'T GOLD

The Olympic medals are designed especially for each individual Olympic Games by the host city's organizing committee. Each medal must be at least three millimeters thick and 60 millimeters in diameter. Also, the gold and silver Olympic medals must be made out of 92.5 percent silver, with the gold medal covered in six grams of gold. Bronze medals are bronze, an alloy of copper and usually tin.

WINNERS AWARDS ARE TAXABLE

Since 2,000, the U.S, Olympic Committee has given winners monetary awards along with their medals: $25,000 for gold, $15,000 for silver and $10,000 for bronze. The taxable amount varies according to their income brackets, but there is a move to make the awards tax exempt.

AMERICAN FOOTBALL - AN OLYMPIC SPORT?

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell hopes that football will become an Olympic sport. "We're already taking steps to gain that IOC (International Olympic Committee) recognition," Goodell said. He believes that 64 countries are playing American football now, so the sport is definitely catching on. Interesting idea, huh?

champion - dance Adopted at 3 days old into a skinny family this chubby little girl developed a sense of humor at a very early age. It would serve her well as she ventured out into the world. She grew up an Army Brat which took her from Alaska to Maryland and many places in between. This gave her an opportunity to see the world from many different perspectives and helped her to never meet a stranger. As a child constantly transferring from school to school she soon found out that if she made her class mates laugh then she would be accepted as one of them. The perpetual class clown throughout school got her nominated in her senior year as, "Never To Be Forgotten"..

 

Tim Kiddchampion - dance
Pack up the babies, Grab the old ladies, Everyone goes... ...because from Louisville,
Kentucky comes the charming hooligan, Tim Kidd. Easily described as a monkey with ADHD, who needs his Ritalin, a nonconformist through most of his youth, Tim's tumultuous relationship with authority developed early on. Tim's childlike exuberance and high octane fueled stage presence delivers a fast paced record of his life from an exceptionally funny point of view. A crowd favorite that is as unpredictable, as he is hilarious. Always on the edge but never vulgar. A powerhouse on stage with his quick wit, edgy material, and a unique outlook on life that makes every show feel like a rock concert! Kurt has appeared on BET's Comicview television show for five consecutive years. He was selected as a semi-finalist for the "2002 Laugh Riot" comedy competition for the Comedy Central Network and was also selected to appear in the Uptown Comedy Festival held at the Apollo Theater in New York City.  
                                  DID YOU KNOW?
CURIOUS FACT FROM ENGLAND
The name Mohammed, in honor of the Islam prophet, is the #1 name for new baby boys in England and Wales. This includes all of its various spellings. It came in ahead of #2 Oliver and #3 Jack. In all of Great Britain, Mohammed is #16. Today Muslims account for about 3 percent of the British population, about 1.5 million. However, the birthrate for Muslims in Britain is almost three times higher than non-Muslims, so there will probably be even more little "Mo"s running around. According to the sixth edition of The Columbia Encyclopedia (2000), "Mohammed is "probably the most common given name" in the world. It is estimated that more than 15 million people (men and boys) in the world bear the name Mohammed or one of its variations."

 

NOTE: For the record, Olivia topped the list for little girls in Britain for the second year in a row, ahead of #2 Ruby and #3 Chloe.

GOOD NEWS FOR BEER DRINKERS!
In 2010, researchers at the University of California performed chemical analyses on beer's ingredients and measured the silicon content of 100 varieties. They learned that beer is great for bones! It's an extremely rich source of silicon, a mineral that helps the body develop new bone tissue. Pale malt beers are best. They have up to four times more silicon than the darker varieties. The "dose" for optimal bone health is one 12 oz. bottle daily, but watch those calories. Some have over 200, so it's best to stick to the 'light' brands  at around 110 calories.  Cheers! 
 
NOTE: See our 'Recipe of the Week' below for another way to get beer into your diet.

FALSE EMAILS
There is an email rumor going around about cancer-causing benzene vapors circulating in automobiles when the AC is turned on without opening the windows. The American Cancer Society says this is false. (However, opening the windows is recommended just to cool your car faster!) We don't know why anyone would start this type of false information, but it happens frequently. If you receive an email with 'new' information about some danger that you haven't already seen reported in newspapers or on TV, chances are it's false. There are several places on the web where you can check these rumors.Try www.truthorfiction.com or www.snopes.com  and type in the subject matter in the search bar.

HUGE METEOR SHOWER NEXT WEEK!
The Perseids meteor shower is next week. The Perseids (so named for the constellation Perseus) are considered by many people to be the year's best shower, and often peak at 50 or more meteors per hour in a dark sky! The Perseids tend to strengthen in number as late night deepens into midnight, and typically produce the most meteors in the wee hours before dawn. To see the 'show', either stay up very late or set your alarm for pre-dawn. These meteors are often bright and frequently leave persistent trains. Starting in late evening on the nights of August 11, 12 and 13, the  meteors will streak across the sky.

"Coolest," etc. It also names the models that won't be around after 2012 and the new models for 2013 that are arriving now. To view all of the lists, Click Here

ANYONE INTERESTED IN PICKLEBALL?    

FROM LAURIE MCFADYEN: Reply    

Pickleball is a fun, energetic game that I call "less strenuous tennis".  It's been a real hit in some areas, but unfortunately no one is playing here in Vero Beach.  If anyone is interested in starting pickleball here, perhaps we can get some courts to play on locally.  Right now some folks are driving to Ft. Pierce to play.  If you're not familiar with pickleball, google it for some great information and hopefully you'll get hooked.

VIDEO OF THE WEEK

GRANDMA STOPS A TANTRUM IN 5 SECONDS!

I wish I had known about this when my children were young! Did you know that smelling something pleasant could do this? Apparently, research has found that smelling causes the brain to interrupt a tantrum, giving your child a chance to calm down and regroup. During a tantrum, the fragrance is brought to your distressed child's nose, and something similar to rebooting a computer occurs. The potion used cannot be purchased in the U.S., but supposedly vanilla or another good fragrance (maybe peppermint or chocolate) works too. If you try this, please let us know if it works for you! Click Here

The Education Foundation of Indian River County (EF-IRC) is pleased to recognize the employees of the School District of Indian River - County office. The employees raised over $1,200 to support the first three Sneaker Exchanges at the start of the new school year.

More than 65 employees who work at the School District County office contributed between .50 and $1.00 each Friday to "denim day fund." Participating employees earned the opportunity to wear denim by donating to the philanthropic effort to provide children in need of a pair of socks and sneakers.Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Fran Adams, commented, "The really neat thing about this gift is that it was the employees' idea. The money came through them and they wanted to use the dollars that they accumulated to support this cause. So I applaud them for wanting to give this money back to the community."
The Department of Revenue Cycle at Indian River Medical Center is pleased to announce the appointment of Jacob Lopez as its new Patient Access director.

RECIPE OF THE WEEK

Slow Cooker Beef 'n Beer Pot Roast 

Beer can tenderize beef. The carbonic acid in beer softens the muscle fiber that makes beef tough. To tenderize, pierce the roast several times and put it in a resealable plastic bag or covered bowl with the can of beer. Let it soak in the fridge for at least one hour before putting it in the slow cooker, then use the beer as described below. 

 

Directions:

3 to 4 pound boneless rump roast

salt and pepper
2 envelopes dry brown gravy mix
1/2 cup flour
1 can beer

4 carrots, cut in chunks
4 stalks celery, cut in chunks
8 baby red potatoes, quartered
Chopped fresh parsley (optional)
 

Season beef well with salt and pepper. Place flour in a big bowl and roll the roast around in it to coat well. Place roast in a slow cooker. Empty two gravy packets into the same bowl with the extra flour. Whisk beer into remaining flour mixture until smooth; add to slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW 9 to 10 hours, or on HIGH 5 to 6 hours. Add vegetables and cook another hour until beef and veggies are fork-tender.

 

 NOTE: Add 1/2 cup crushed ginger snaps (about10 cookies)  to the mix to turn this into a delicious 'Sauerbraten' recipe. You may need to add a little more beer or water if the gravy gets too thick.
