Page 12 POST-GAZETTE, SEPTEMBER 2, 2011 r,] Eay Barron's 11 O'CLOCK NEW5 So begins another new month7 To think, just weeks away comes the first day of autumn, Friday, September 23, and on Sep- tember 11 th we will be mourning another birthday. Yes, my birthday! How old will I be? Old enough not to buy green bananas! Carlo Scostumato claims the only way to keep from growing old is to die young. A new study revealed that when it comes to fibbing, men are the kings. What's more, on average, men tell 1,092 whoppers per year, compared to just 728 for women. That means the average guy tells three fibs every day, compared to just two for gals. Men feel less guilty about telling tall tales than women. While 82 percent of women say they were bothered by a falsehood, only 70 per- cent of the men were. But 75 percent of the 3,000 men and women polled say lying is OK when it comes to avoiding hurting someone's feelings. Some favorite fibs by men: 1. I didn't have that much to drink; 2. No, you don't look fat in that; 3. I'm stuck in traffic and 4. Sorry, I missed your call. As for women, some of their favorite fibs are: 1. Nothing's wrong. I'm fine; 2. I don't know where it is, I haven't touched it; 3. It wasn't that expensive and 4. No, I didn't throw it away. And of course, a woman's greatest fib is, I've got a headache! Honest "Abe," Tom Analetto of Medford says, "A liar is hard not to believe when he says nice things about you." The astute Paul Waters of Swampscott reminds us it is impossible for a man to be a successful liar unless someone believes him. The widely read gossip rag National Examiner's August 22 nd issue was headlined: HILLARY HEART CRISIS! HER TERRIFYING BLACKOUTS! BILL'S ULTIMATUM! And so the readers learned about workaholic Hillary Clinton's latest heart crisis and more. In short, her weight soared to an unhealthy 171 pounds as Secretary of State. The 63-year- old former First Lady and presidential candi- date reportedly suffered shocking collapses and blackouts in the past. "Hillary is in a bad way if she doesn't slow down," says a close friend. "She travels more than 200,000 miles a year and is taking a major hit on her health." Hillary announced she will resign her cabinet post after President Barack Obama's first term ends in 2012. Hubby Bill, 65, is so alarmed by her situation, he's begging her to quit now. Bill has had to battle his own heart problems and has drastically changed his lifestyle, losing a lot of weight and switching to low-fat foods. Now, he's urging Hillary to do the same. And her daugh- ter Chelsea, 31, who last year wed banker Marc Mezvinsky, is also pleading with her to slow down. Yes, Hillary! Slow it downl Eat more garlic! The combination of garlic and vinegar can KO heart disease by lower- ing your blood pressure and cholesterol levels, two of the leading risk factors for cardiovas- cular disease which afflicts about 81 million Americans. "Two items to include on your heart-healthy menu are garlic and vinegar," confirms Dr. Ellen Kamhi, author of The Natural Medicine Chest. In brief, UCLA researcher, cardiologist Dr. Matthew Budoff has conducted many studies that show how aged garlic extract lowers blood pressure and cholesterol and even reverses the buildup of plaque clogs in blood vessels. "Taking garlic is like having a blood-pressure medication, an aspirin and cholesterol lowering medica- tion all in one," says Dr. Vahid Larijani of the Los Angeles Biomedical Research Insti- tute, which recently confirmed the healing powers of garlic in a study of 65 firefighters. In studies, garlic also lowered blood pressure significantly. Wait! Here is another healthy tip! People age 65 and older who regularly use olive oil in their cooking are a whopping 41 percent less likely to suffer from a stroke, according to new research published by the American Academy of Neurology. Strokes are thought to occur when the blood supply to the brain is disrupted, and olive oil reportedly helps clear arteries of dangerous clots. "Strokes are so common in older people and olive oil the National Institute of Health and Medical Re- O O O search in  Bordeaux, France. Huh? Men care more about their cars than their health. Oil changed? Check. Tires inflated? A new survey reveals that an incredible 70 percent of men find it easier to care for their cars. "At age 40," warns Dr. Harry Fisch, urologist and clinical pro- fessor of medicine at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical College, "the body begins to change and men are past the maintenance-free years." How true! From October 3 to 6, Heritage Auctions in Los Angeles will be selling off some of Ameri- can icon John Wayne's movie memorabilia and personal items for the very first time!

"My father was always open and accessible to his fans and  8tVOS con making these items available to the public is something that feels right. Now, we're very excited to be able to offer mementos of my father to fans he valued so much." Son, Ethan Wayne, says his father's estate donated a large collection of personal property to the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City in 1979. The fam- ily kept other sentimental items. The Wayne family is letting fans bid on more than 400 never-before-seen public awards, scripts, costumes and personal documents. Wayne, who died in 1979 from cancer at age 72, won an Oscar for his role as Rooster Cogburn in 1969's True Grit. He is buried on top of the hill in Pacific View Memorial Park, Newport Beach, California. His grave is unmarked Big news? Zsa Zsa Gabor's loving husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, paid a whopping $68,000 to put up a billboard in Tinseltown heralding the fact that the famous blonde and he have been wed 25 years. Of course, the 94-year-old Zsa Zsa is fading fast and is bed- ridden at her Bel Air home, so she'll never see it. Strangely, for some time the Prince has also been crying broke, which is with- out her dough. He claims the reason he's selling her $15 million home and her show- biz memorabilia is to pay her medical bills. Still, he uses every chance he can to get publicity. On June 20, the cad released a picture of poor, ailing Zsa Zsa propped up in her bed, sipping champagne with him to celebrate his 68 th birthday. Her only child, daughter Francisca, 64, fumes over von Anhalt's never-ending, attention-getting stunts, especially the costly billboard. She blasts: "He once again uses my mother to bring publicity to himself." Interesting show biz stuff by the handsome and stately musicologist, Albert Natale. "Blue Moon" was written in 1934 by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart. It was originally titled *Prayer." Later, it was changed to "The Bad in Every Man," before settling on "Blue Moon." Glenn Miller on being named Juke Box Favorite in 1939: "I don't want to be the King of Swing or anything else. I'd rather have a reputation as one of the best all- around bands." And Roger Vadim says, "Living with Jane Fonda was difficult in the begin- ning ... She had so many -- how do you say?. -- bachelor habits. Too much organization. Time is her enemy. She cannot relax. Always there is something to do -- the work, the appointment, the telephone call. She can- not say, 'Oh, well, I'll do it tomorrow.' This is her weakness." Stephen Boyd claims, "Brigitte Bardot asked me to marry her. I don't know if she was joking, but I said no. I did not explain that I couldn't marry an actress who could never be faithful to me. Or at least try. I would at least try, for the first year or two." And the original title of "Alexander's Band" was "Alexander and his Clarinet." It was Irving Berlin's first compo- sition in 1910.
