DOCTOR IS HOPEFUL FOR BRITTANY HINKLE
For a couple of weeks Brittany Hinkle has been sick from something that hasn't been able to be pinned down. That is, until now. On her last visit to the clinic an examination of Brit's head showed a sinus infection behind the ear causing a build up of fluid. She has been treated with Augmentin, but because the White Bloodcell Count went from 12,000 to 16,000, she is being switched to Cipro. When Kristi asked if Cipro was safe, she was told that 2 year-old anthrax patients were given Cipro with no ill effects. It's not a cure, but everyone is hopeful that Brit will be the same old kid, or at least as close as she can get.
HAROLD HINKLE HAS A NEW TOY
With cell phone technology constanly changing, Harold Hinkle has decieded to go digital. He purchased a Nokia phone with 100 number memory, a choice of 40 different rings, voicemail, and numerous other bells and whistles. Trouble is the darn thing cuts in and out, and sometimes cuts him off in mid conversation. He also has to go through all kinds of steps just to make a phone call. This prompted Jerry to say to Harold and Mary that he thought the phone was made of solid waste(not exactly in those words either).
THE VANILLA BEAN AMERICA'S NEW COMEBACK KID
by Jerry Hinkle, Special to the Holabird Advocate
What is it about vanilla? It seems to be everywhere these days. When I was a kid everyone but chocolate syrup, hot fudge, butterschotch, strawberries, rasperries, M&Ms, and even candy sprinkles in Vanilla ice cream. The Coca Cola Company have Vanilla Coke, a beverage that I find obnoxiously putrid and just plain rotten. In their advertising, Coke shows that Mafia types have to threaten people to drink it and endorse it (let's hope i don't find a horses head in bed with me tomorrow morning).
Nestle's Quick has chocolate powder, strawberry powder, an up until a few years ago, there was a root beer flavored Quick. A survey was just released that revealed that vanilla was the most popular ice cream flavor. Of course, there's five different kinds of it.
