Combined with the dental component of your pet's annual wellness examination, a home dental care regimen can prevent pain and expense in the long nin. Bmshing your pet's teetji maysound like a tiresome task, hut Dr. Bill Krug, a resident in veterinary dentistry and oral surgery at the University of Illinois Veterinary Teaching Hospital says to try it.
Now think about what your teeth would be like after eight or nine years williout cleanirig. The gums and underlying bone recede as a consequence of tlie untreated infec- Uon, resulting in loose, painful teedi, inflamed gums, and exposed roots. If the task of tooth brushing seems daunting at first, he suggests tak- ing "baby steps" toward a dental hygiene routine.
Start gradually by holding your pet and looking into its mouth. Of course, if you think you may get bitten, don't put yourself In danger, and find an alterna- tive to brusliing. As your pet gels more comfortable widi this, try putting some veterinary toothpaste on your- finger and rubbing it on the teedi, Some pets may find this a pleasant experience, since most veterinary tooUi- pastes are flavored, and diey may like die petting and attention.
Many veterinary toothpastes fight bacteria and tartar by activating anU-bacterial salivary enzymes. With small strides like these, Krug said, your pet may let you brush its teeth with a regular pet toodibrush within a few weeks. Brushing is the most effective way of removing food debris, thus minimizing bacterial growth and tar- tar formation. It takes a good deal of patience and persistence, but the few minutes a day you invest can prevent future discomfort, disease, and expense.
Although Dr. De rinses that you can add to pet's drinking water cat reduce bacterial and buildup. Rawhide chews, too, can help clean teeth, but Dr. Krug advises against cow bones and pig hooves available in some pet stores, since they are hard enough to cause painful tooth fractures.
Special dental chews, such as C. Good dental care begins at home and can save pain and expense in the long run.

Refusing to "hide behind" oUicr artists' songs, Osmond has finally discovered "Wliat I Meant to Say,", a new album which he co- wrote and produced. Ttie lifelong entertainer will perform numerous songs from his 54tli album, which has won critical and commer- cial success, at the Genesee Theatre June 3, Osmond surrounded himself with capable songwriters and musicians, but found that the project's outcome depended on whetlier he alone could "come up with die goods.
A New York critic accused Osmond of "hiding behind other people's material your whole career," an insult made more injurious by its apparent truth. He told his co-writers that he wanted to stay away from "sappy," cliched love songs, but realized that such senUments flowed freely and hon- estly in his writing. His first single, "Breeze on By," resulted from a creative flash as capricious and whim- sical as its title. As diey relaxed in his swim- ming pool enjoying a perfect sun-blossomed afternoon, co-writer Gary Bariow said that he never enjoyed such days in England.
Over the telephone, Osmond sings liis rejoinder, "I got sunshine every day," and. Considerably more stress went into writ- ing "Whenever You're In Trouble," a song inspired by Osmond's year-bId son. Homesick while completing his two-year church mission in Scodand several months ago, the young man conversed for a half-hour via e-mail before finding peace with his fadier and saying goodbye.
Written to express Osmond's uncondi- tional love for his son, the song developed a greater significance when die singer's modier died during the album's recording. It was a pretty powerful moment, and I'll never for- get it. Osmond promised he would write a song for her when they were married more dian 2G years ago, and finally got around to completing the nag- ging household chore.
After presenting the song to her, Osmond said, his wife gave her approval by remarking, "All right, you've just bought yourself another 26 years. Local fans will hear a mix of old and new hits, as Osmond sings several tunes alone on stage and reprises favorites such as "Soldier of Love. Hearing a female fan accuse him of messing with her "memories," however, led him to closely the number.
He scoffs when asked what piece he would sing periectly if he could choose just one, calling per- fection a goal impossible to achieve. Allowing a deeper look into his psyche, Osmond said that die Genesee show would be a joy for his audience and himself. But her niodierhas convinced me it Wiisn't her time to go. One look in her grief-stricken face reveals a tmdi greater dian any Supreme Court Ruling. A modier knows her child , even when cxjjerts widi degrees and decrees say odier- wise.
I think of die gre- garious boy next-door who fills the room widi Schubert or Dixieland as he plays his beloved piano. His adoptive mom proudly looks on. If she had listened to the experts, her autistic son miglit still be on a back ward in Rumania or worse.
But a mom knows die tmih. I diink of co-work- er Julie, a single mom who diligendy aires for her disabled daughter widi littie diought of herself. Butjulie matter-of-factly faces her daugliter's many physical and mental challenges, and privately celebrates her accom- plishments.
Tliat's because a mom knows die trudi. I look at a photograph of my smiling nephew and his feisty modier. Nephew Darron just tumed 21 , but brain injured at birdi functions at die level of an infant.
Still Deb, a Biology professor teaching the best and die brightest, devotes every spare minute nltendlng to die needs of Uiis Joyful child. But a mom knows die tmdi. Ihcn I look at my own son. He came to us at3, asouilieni boy widi a beaming smile, ponylail, and die label "special needs.
Teachers who lacked die patience or understanding shunted him to a comer by himself. Imagine their surprise when he tested "gift- ed" in art. He now plans on going to college. No surprise to me, beauise I know the tnidi. So it's telling diat Terri Schiavo should face her maker after receiving Easier communion, her final meal being a drop of Clirist's blood.
Just as Modier Mary had to helplessly watch Jesus' slow, agonizing crucifixion. Tern's modi- er was forced to sit by while her child was con- demned and executed for die sin of living as an imperfect being. Both Mary and Tern's modier knew the inidi, but no one would listen.

The Box Office opens 90 minutes before the performance begins. By Tom Witom "Lost Land," a new play by Stephen Jeffreys making its premiere at Cliicago's Steppenwolf Theatre, relies on historical fic- tion to probe family dynamics, political change in a war-ravaged country and perr sonal obligations.
World War i is nearing an end, and a wily govemment emissary, Miklos, has arrived at tlie casde to talk Count Krdstof, the lord of tiie manor, out of retirement and lure him back to political life in Budapest.
The Miklos character is. The old order is changing. The idea of peasants as property owners, particularly Hungarians who marry outsiders, is gaining currency. All too soon, however, Hungary finds itself in a Uglit spot under terms of tlie war setUement: the country faces the loss of two-tliirds of Its land and nearly half of its population. The play offers an ideal forum for Malkovich, wlio plays Kristof, die local land baron convinced partly out of guilt over his late father's unorthodox actions] of the necessity to redistribute certain parcels of vineyard land to Tamas Ian Barford , a peas- ant under his dominion.
One time the prime mover behind tlie development of his coun- try's railway system, Kristof now envisions a series of bridges that could facilitate com- merce widi the Russians. For Kristofs benefit, Anna plays dress- up and wears clothes Uiat once belonged to the late countess. How serious tlicir relation- ship is becomes clear in die final scene, just as how far Kristof is willing to be manipulat- ed by his devious antagonist Miklos. By the time Kristof returns from his mis- sion in Budapest, many of tlie peasants are fleeing die country, die vineyard is in ruins and the count's entire way of life forever dis- rupted.

Bom in , was a child prodigy and studied at tlie Qiicago College of Music. By the age of 12, he was already playing witli dieCliicago Symphony Orchestra- However, due to a factory injury on tlie second finger on his right hand, Styne's classical concert career ended. As a teen, he played mtli bands as well as pit piano in Chicago's buriesque houses. At age 21, to impress a giri, he wrote his first song. Ned Miller wrote the lyrics and tlie result was the song Sunday, which sold over , copies of sheet music.
Styne also worked at Chicago's Club witli Fanny Brice for four weeks. This would give Styne insiglit tliat he could call upon later when her wrote the music for Funny Girl, based on Brice's life starring Barbra Streisand.
In tlie eariy 30's he moved to New York and eventually found himself working as a vocal coach for 20 Century Fox studios in Hollywood. By , he teamed witli Sammy. Styne eventually moved his efforts to Broadway, and had his first smash witli 's High Button Shoes and scored a major triumph witli Gentleman Prefer Blondes, starring Carol Channing.

EPs and CD-singles from Stinjy Midgets are also welcome to be added, as long as they are at least 4 songs in length. See all Midget from midge , a sand fly  is a term for a person of unusually short stature that is considered by some to be pejorative. It may also refer to anything of much smaller than normal size, as a synonym for "miniature",  such as a midget cell , a midget crabapple , a midget submarine , MG's Midget , Daihatsu's Midget , and the Midget Mustang airplane ; or to anything that regularly uses anything that is smaller than normal other than a person , such as midget car racing and quarter midget racing ; or a smaller version of play or participation, such as midget golf ; or to anything designed for very young i.
Merriam-Webster dictionary states that the first use of the term "midget" was in Midgets have always been popular entertainers, but were often regarded with disgust and revulsion in society. In the early 19th century, however, midgets were romanticized by the middle class and regarded with the same affectionate condescension extended to children, as creatures of innocence. Barnum indirectly helped popularize the term "midget" when he began featuring General Tom Thumb , Lavinia Warren and Commodore Nutt in his circus.
Such performances continued to be widespread through the mid part of the twentieth century, with Hermines Midgets brought from their performances in Paris to appear at the New York World's Fair ,  the same year that MGM released The Wizard of Oz , which featured midgets in its cast, most of whom were from the Singer's Midgets troupe.
When interviewed for a piece, performers engaged in ongoing " Midget Wrestling " events stated that they did not view the term "Midget Wrestling" as derogatory, but merely descriptive of their small size; however, others responding to the piece disagreed, with one stating that the performances themselves perpetuated an outdated and demeaning image.
Towards the end of the twentieth century, the word became considered by some as a pejorative term when in reference to people with dwarfism. There have been movements to remove use of the word "midget" from age classification categories in youth sports, with Hockey Canada announcing that it would refer to the division as "U18" in , as part of a wider renaming scheme.1: 1. partial cd list 1, Pleasures - 1, Pleasures () A.D - A.D () 5 Guns West Bad Boys Of Rock N Roll.
