Times seems to be so fleeting lately.The days fly by and then the months. Ioften marvel at how quickly I tear off my cal-endar pages. It seems the month has no morethan begun and it’s half over.That’s why I thought I’d write myThanksgiving column now — while I’mthinking about it.Thanksgiving has been on my mind forwell over two weeks now — ever since welearned Jay’s sister and family will be joiningus. It will be 2 1/2 years since I’ve seen them.Lotus turned 12 Friday and I’m betting she’snot even close to the same little girl I took tothe swimming pool the last time they werehome.I’m a list-maker, so as soon I heard theywere coming, I started making lists. TheThanksgiving meal list is made and the assign-ments divvied up and the turkey is already inthe freezer lookin’ all fat and guaranteed tobe juicy.After my lists were made and checked off,I started thinking about Thanksgivings past,like the time the turkey was a little biggerthan usual and the wings kind of brushed thesides of the oven and eventually caught fire.Hey, no one eats those things anyway. They’re just for show so the bird looks pretty. Really.Anywho, now I use a roaster, so the oven’sfree for other stuff to set on fire.Really going back, I recall the Thanksgivingsin the woods just south of Spencerville. Wewould pack the place with aunts, uncles,cousins, etc., and just have a grand day. I canremember the aroma of my mother fryingchicken even before my pajama-clad feet hitthe floor.My favorite ones were when it snowed.There was nothing so magical to me as watch-ing the snow fall through the windows of thehall we rented. Then we’d all go outside andthe big kids would play football and the littlerones would just wander around or maybe ven-ture to the nearby park.Well, Thanksgiving this year is going to beanother memory. It won’t be perfect. Cameronwill not be able to make it. He works the nightbefore until the wee hours and the day after. Ihave a feeling he will be OK on Thanksgiving.He has met new friends.It will be the best I can make, though.Well, I’ve got to go. There’s a few morelists to be made like the pre-to-do list and thenthe to-do list and the last-minute to-do list.Hey, it’s OK. I’ve still got time. Oh, heck!Is it less than two weeks away already? Iswear it was just the first of the month.

Ohio baby arrives early at11:11 a.m. on 11/11/11
CLEVELAND (AP) —A baby expected next weekarrived in memorable style at11:11 a.m. on 11/11/11.Mary Discenzo and her“extra special” baby, CelineDianne, named for her grand-mothers, were doing fineafter Friday’s delivery at theCleveland Clinic’s FairviewHospital, with mom posingfor photos as daughter dozedoff.“We came in and realizedthat she was going to be bornon the 11th,” Discenzo, 35,said as she straightened thebow on top of her baby’shead.“To make it the 11th hour,the 11th minute was just soweird,” she said.Dr. Rebecca Starck saidthere was no fudging the time— it was recorded on a digi-tal monitor.Discenzo’s official duedate was Thursday, but her9-year-old daughter was born10 days late, so Discenzoexpected her second baby toarrive late next week.“It’s amazing. She’s beau-tiful and healthy and that’sall that matters, regardless of what time she was born butit is a wonderful thing. She’sextra special now,” she saidin a bedside interview.The father, Mike Discenzo,said it all went fast. “It wasrelatively quick once thepushing began. My lovelybride pushed for all of 13minutes,” he said.

should be tested because hehas a cousin with very high“bad” cholesterol who need-ed heart bypass surgery forclogged arteries in his 40s.“I’m very supportive” of uni-versal screening, he said. “Theknowledge of their cholesterolnumbers as well as their bloodsugar levels can be very help-ful for the physicians and theirfamilies about which patientsare headed toward diabetes.”Dr. William Cooper, a pedi-atrics and preventive medi-cine professor at VanderbiltUniversity, said expandingthe testing guidelines “wouldseem to me to make sense.”But he added: “One of therisks would be that we wouldbe treating more kids, poten-tially, and we don’t know yet theimplications of what we’re treat-ing. Are we treating a number orare we treating a risk factor?”That’s the reason a dif-ferent group of governmentadvisers, the U.S. PreventiveServices Task Force, conclud-ed in 2007 that not enoughis known about the possiblebenefits and risks to recom-mend for or against choles-terol screening for childrenand teens.
