The Beach City BUZZ

Howdy, friends, and welcome to the Beach City BUZZ. A hearty congratulations to all of Revere’s graduating students, and a big round of applause as well to the supporting cast of those who have been there to help them on the road to achieve greatness – the parents, grandparents, teachers, mentors and friends who believe in our kids and all that they will accomplish. Now go forth and do some good in the world. Make a difference. Put down your iPhones long enough to observe the world around you. Be kind. That’s all. Just do it … That was easy. We’ve now solved all of the problems of the world. Well, perhaps not, because we’ve still got some questions that need answers – things like: How do peanuts get salted if they’re still in the shell? In the word scent, is it the s or the c that’s silent? And in the word queue, is it just one letter followed by four silent letters? Just wondering. What’s the top of your foot called? Why do they call it raw sewerage? Is there a cooked sewerage? When French people swear, do they say, “Pardon my English?” If a woman is a meter maid, why isn’t a man a meter butler? When does it stop being partly cloudy and start being partly sunny? And what’s the difference between rain and showers, and windy and breezy? Can you grow birds from planting birdseed? Why are softballs hard? If a chronic liar tells you he or she is a chronic liar, should you believe the person? When someone says, “PU, that stinks,” what does PU stand for? If you can be overwhelmed and underwhelmed, why can’t you just be whelmed? How do you draw a blank? We can’t answer any of the above questions, but we do know one thing for sure: Here’s the BUZZ: Attention Revere senior citizens! Save the date! The Rossetti -Cowan Senior Center has scheduled a Health Awareness Day on Thursday, June 15, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. All seniors are invited to come and talk with healthcare professionals and other experts about their healthcare,a financial and/or social needs. Feel free to invite family, friends and neighbors who might benefit from this extremely informative event. It’s at the Senior Center (25 Winthrop Ave., Revere). For more information contact Camille at (781) 286-8156 or email to reserve your table. Thank you, Stephen Fielding, for the info … Here’s an event that sounds like it has the potential to be lots of fun – a Revere 70’s Era Boomers / Geezers Party, to be held on Friday, July 21 from 7 p.m.-11 p.m. at the Winthrop Elks Lodge #1078 (191 Washington St., Winthrop), featuring the tunes of “DJ Johnny Looch” (John Luciano). For more info, visit their Facebook Page, “Revere 70’s Era Boomers/Geezers Party, or email … Ran-dumb thoughts: Is there any reason why boxed wine shouldn’t come with a little straw stuck to the side of the box? Two very helpful household hints: If you’re putting out some large planters, don’t waste potting soil to fill them up. If you’ve purchased plants at the nursery, use the empty plastic pots the plants came in to take up space in the bottom of the planters. (Empty plastic water bottles work well, too.) Fill up your planters about half way with the empties, then put in your potting soil and plants. Your pots will be lighter and you’ll save some $$$. And if you’ve got some metal that needs polishing (and no, we don’t work on commission for this company!) we’ve recently discovered Blue Magic metal polish cream, which can be purchased on or at automotive supply stores. WOW! We used it on a majorly tarnished antique Russian samovar, as well as on a musical instrument that was formerly silver, but black from age. WOW again. Give it a try. Two parrots were sitting on a perch. One turned to the other and said, “Do you smell fish?” Ok, just think about that … Regular BUZZer Ann Raponi emailed to let everyone know that it’s almost time for the annual Jerry Valcour event, which is scheduled for June 22, to be held at Kelly’s Roast Beef on the Boulevard at 2:00 p.m. The very popular vocalist will be entertaining and singing many popular songs from yesteryear. Don’t miss out … Please plan to attend the annual Revere Firefighters’ Memorial Service on Sunday, June 11, at 8:15 a.m. Relatives and friends of the Revere Fire Department, especially retirees, are invited to the Alden A. Mills Point of Pines Fire Station to honor departed members at this most solemn and traditional service … That’s it for the BUZZ, BUZZers. Do whatever makes your heart sing, and for all the gentlemen in our reading audience, here’s some good advice: If you’re looking for a mate to make your life complete, instead of going to a bar to meet women, just go to Target. The female to male ratio is 10 to 1, and they’re already looking for things they don’t need … This week’s SMILEMAKERS: Frank Sims, Lauren Hayes, Danielle Ramos, Manuela Hernandez, Josephine King, Anna Santos, Azra Lakacha, Amy Armstrong, Sofia Visconti, Frank Colllins, Scott Frye, Julianna Vargas, Amy Goldberg, Connie LaBonte and George Quintana … Here’s the CHUCKLE, emailed by Ann Onymous: The other night I was invited out for a night with “the girls.” I told my husband that I would be home by midnight. “I promise!” Well, the hours passed and the margaritas went down way too easy. Around 3:00 a.m., a bit blitzed, our designated driver dropped me off at my house. Just as I got in the door, the cuckoo clock in the hall started up and cuckooed three times. Quickly realizing my husband would probably wake up, I cuckooed another nine times. I was really proud of myself for coming up with such a quick-witted solution (even when feeling tipsy) in order to escape a possible lecture from him. The next morning my husband asked me what time I got in, and I told him midnight. He didn’t seem bothered at all. (Whew! Got away with that one!) Then he said, “Sweetheart, I think we need a new cuckoo clock.” When I asked him why, he said, “Well, last night, our clock cuckooed three times, then said, ‘Oh, crap,’ cuckooed four more times, cleared its throat, cuckooed another three times, giggled, cuckooed twice more, then tripped over the cat and farted.” … Got comments? Jokes? News? Suggestions? Want to congratulate someone on their anniversary, birthday, baby or divorce? Is your group running a fundraiser, meeting or event? June 11 is National Corn on the Cob Day! We won’t try to butter you up but, shucks, if I could have your ear for just a moment, it would be very sweet if you would email your BUZZbits to and read it in The Revere Advocate!
