The games were exciting as we all stood in lines waiting for our turn, but some games had a long line all night long. Bags were handed out for all the prizes you won, and I'm glad because I had my pock- ets already filled. Everywhere I looked I saw smiles and heard laughter. I do believe we all had loads of fun with old and new friends. I did the Wack-a-nail this year and regained my win again. We would like to give Robin, Sherri, and all the Petersburg Hardware family a great big thank you. We all will be back next year for Ladies' Night. I had fun and then more fun all night. A fter the fun, I was picked up by Ver- non and Norm and we left to pick up Dixie, and we all traveled to Princeton to a Mexi- can eating place where we enjoyed the food and music as we celebrated the Day of the Dead, where pictures of our loved ones who have passed on were brought and we all enjoyed each other's company. This day was also Vernon's 74 years, and I got to sing Happy Birthday to him before the night was over. The person singing and playing guitar was really great as he sang requests of the 60s to the 80s and some show tunes from the 40s, songs I haven't heard in quite a long time that brought back fond memo- ries of yesteryear. This great singer is Big D Unplugged playing a 12 string guitar. As the lights are about to dim on this week's ramblings of the Winslow area, keep an eye on family and friends; slow down and see all the wonders around your area; oh, Tuesday was Election day so we hope you all got out to vote for the right person for the job and not what favors they can do for you; then as always smile, wave and say Hi to everyone you see this week. numerous adults actually jump backward from where they were leaning over her stroller and admiring her beauty once they received her dagger glare. So disconcert- ing was this baby rage that it was hard not to feel as if you had suddenly been trans- ported into a Stephen King novel. When she was 2 and not quite speaking sentences yet, I took her and her brother to a kids museum. My son spent a half-hour fastidiously building a fort with odd-sized cardboard boxes, but then another kid, about age 4, knocked it down. My daugh- ter marched up to that kid, grabbed him by the collar and shook an angry fist in his face. She was spitting mad. The boy's dad looked over at me as if to say, "Aren't you going to do something to stop her? " Stop her? No way! This was a learning opportunity for me. If I stopped her, I'd nev- er know how far she'd go. The dad and I watched on the edge of our seats as my baby — wearing a visible diaper, a tutu and a baseball shirt — shook her chubby fist in the boy's face. Her words came out loud, sharp and far apart. "Don't. Make. Brother. Sad. OK?! " The boy said, "OK." To which she screamed, "OK?! " He said, "OK, OK." Then she let go of his collar, took a deep breath, shook out her arms and paced around the room to walk it off. The dad ran over to check on his son. My son ran over and hugged his sister. She melt- ed in his arms. My face hurt from smiling. Does she watch Clint Eastwood mov- ies with the baby sitter? How did she even know to grab a collar? That's my daughter. When she wants to be loving, she screams, "You are beauti- ful, OK?! " or "I love you, OK?! " She's like the world's craziest life coach. She loves to snuggle and give kisses and hugs. She is obsessed with her hero of a big brother, but she knows heroes need rescuing, too. She is loyal and loud and loving and demanding and fierce and gentle and happy and angry and brave and careful and smart and play- ful and wonderful. So many ands. Many of them scare me; all inspire me. She turned 3 a few days ago. When I wished my feisty girl a happy birthday, she said, "I'm not feisty! I'm me! " So true. Like Katiedid Langrock on Facebook, at It's that time of year again. Where the leaves change to multicolor- ed bright, beautiful hues. Where the cool, crisp air of early mornings slaps you awake as you walk to your car. Where the dreaded sinus and allergies cause nagging headaches, runny noses, scratchy throats and annoy- ing coughing spells. As I scrolled through my Facebook feed last Sunday night, I thought I'd finally dis- covered the Holy Grail reme- dy to alleviate future coughing spells. One of my friends shared the image to the right with one of her family members who must be suffering from this common discomfort. Pineapple juice sounds much tastier than Robitussin. If it can also fight infec- tions and bacteria, this sounds like the an- tidote to keep stocked up on this winter. But like many of these images plastered all over Facebook and incessantly forward- ed through email, it's simply a myth. My friend, like most others who use so- cial media, fell victim to propagating false- hoods without recognizing the tell-tale signs of an urban legend or doing appro- priate research. It's a personal pet peeve of mine when I see factually inaccurate or complete- ly false information spread like wildfire across Facebook, email and other social platforms. Whether it is a home "remedy" for an ailment or political facts taken out of context, it drives me crazy. HOW CAN YOU IDENTIFY AN URBAN LEGEND, MYTH OR FACTUALLY INACCURATE STATEMENT? First, it sounds too good to be true. In the image above, it says "pineapple juice is 500 % more effective." Large num- bers usually indicate an exaggeration. You've got to be skeptical. Don't believe everything you read on the Internet, hear on the radio, watch on T V, or otherwise. Second, its source cannot be identified. No reliable source of the information about the pineapple juice is provided in the picture, so that should at minimum prompt the question – Who verified this information? Another friend posted on Facebook yesterday a myth about a virus spreading that targets Android phones. His post, which he had copied and pasted, said "and I heard this on a local radio station." Truth was, he didn't hear it on the radio. And whomever he copied it from hadn't either. No radio station was ever iden- tified on which the "news" had been announced. If a source is provided, evaluate its reli- ability and verify it. WHAT CAN YOU DO TO STOP SPREADING FALSEHOODS ON THE INTERNET? Stop! Research! Then Post! It's all too easy to read something in- triguing then click the Share button on Facebook or the Forward button in our email and blast it to everyone you know. Ask yourself questions about what you read: • Does this sound too good to be true? • Do the numbers make sense? • Where did this information come from? • Can it be verified? • Is it a trustworthy source? • Is it taken out of context? Do your homework by spending a few minutes researching trustworthy resourc- es on the Internet. is an excellent site that debunks many of the urban legends and myths seen online. Its team of writers thor- oughly digs into the sources and facts of commonly shared posts, emails, and pic- tures and provides a summary supporting or disproving it. Once you've taken a few minutes to check the facts and determined it's truth- ful and useful to others, then and only then feel free to share with your friends and family.
