Civil War Encampment
I find it refreshing to shoot different things
from time to time to get a new perspective
and sharpen my camera skills and eye. My
favorite subjects are sports and wildlife. I
recently photographed a civil war encampment -
completely different than the fast moving subjects
I generally try to photograph. It was a lot of fun.
Try different techniques and different angles
when shooting new subject matter to gain a new
perspective. Watch out for cluttered backgrounds
and bright objects.
To give these photos a more authentic look I
converted them from full color to a Sepia tone.
That’s it for this month. You can email me
with any questions about your photography at
bill@KirmsPhotography.com. Visit my site
www.KirmsPhotography.com if you’d like to
see some of my work. Keep shooting and trying
to improve your images, but most importantly,
have fun with your camera.

Outlook by Dr. Shari Dloss
CHIROPRACTIC CURE IS NOT IMMEDIATE
As a society we’ve become accustomed to quick service, from fast food at drive-thru
windows, to quick pain relief from medication. If you’re thinking of getting chiropractic care,
one important factor to recognize is that chiropractic treatment does not guarantee an immediate
cure to all problems.
Chiropractic philosophy does not include the use of prescription drugs or surgery. Chiropractic
treatment is not designed to mask the pain caused by a problem, but rather to get at the source of
the problem and correct it. A course of treatment will correct most problems, but if the condition
was caused initially by something like poor posture, job-related repetitive movement, or stress,
recovery will be slow unless you change the behavior that brought the condition on in the first
Good communication will help your chiropractor diagnose your problem and set the right
course of treatment. Communication is important as treatment progresses, as well, so that your
chiropractor can determine if a new direction of treatment, or a referral to another medical
professional, is needed.

WONDER OF IT ALL
* Gone With The Wind author, Margaret Mitchell was born in 1900. Ad-
justed to today’s dollars, the 1939 movie inspired by her novel is the
all-time box office earner, ahead of Star Wars and The Sound of Music.
* “Sesame Street” debuted in 1969. Creator Jim Henson’s widow, Jane,
donated the original Kermit the Frog, along with the early versions of
Cookie Monster and Oscar the Grouch to the Smithsonian Museum of
American History in Washington.
* The Vietnam Vets Memorial opened in Washington in 1982. Nearby
stands the “Vietnam Women’s Memorial” a tableau of “three women”,
one caring for a soldier. It was unveiled in 1993 in honor of the 265,500
U.S. women who served in the war, most of whom were nurses.
* Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the fourth of eight films based on
J.K. Rowling’s novels about a boy wizard, premiered in 2005.
DID YOU KNOW
* Graphite found in a pencil is first finely ground and mixed with water
and clay powder. Then it’s formed into what looks like gray spaghetti
strings before being inserted into pencils.
* The White House, home to American presidents, wasn’t always white. It
was gray Virginia freestone until 1814 when the British burned it. White
paint was used to cover the damage but it didn’t officially become “The
White House” until Teddy Roosevelt’s administration.
* Resin from the pine tree is used to produced turpentine.
* The main female singer in an opera is known as a prima donna.
* The state with the most covered bridges is Indiana.
* Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was Disney’s first animated feature
film and premiered in 1937.
Under Billy Wilder’s direction, two Chicago musicians hide from the
mob by joining an all-girl orchestra in the 1959 flick Some Like it Hot.
The film starred Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon as Joe/Josephine and Jerry/
Daphne who masquerade as women except for one hitch: Joe is infatuated
with Sugar Kane Kowalczyk (Marilyn Monroe) the band’s singer and is
willing to blow his cover to win her. It had funny one-liners, gags, disguises,
hilarious scenes and slapstick chases.
Just in case you make it to the top, here are questions that would test
your memory. (Answers are at bottom of this article – no peeking!)
A. What part did Robert De Niro play in his elementary school production GARAGE DOORS

B. What common fate was shared by millionaires John Jacob Astor, Isidor PETRA OVERHEAD

Alfred Fuller came to America, he realized we took pride in keeping our
homes spic and span. In 1905 he took his savings, bought a suitcase, filled
it with a variety of brushes and began selling door-to-door with only the
top of the line scrub utensils. He made a good living and within five years
had 25 Fuller Brush Men working for him. When he finally put down his
suitcase in 1943, his company was worth more than $10 million. Though
door-to-door sales aren’t made much anymore, mail order catalogues, in
part have taken their place. By the way, Fuller’s camel hair brushes were
not made of camel’s hair. They were invented by Mr. Camel.
