For the patients of Drs. Albiero, Templin, Jakusz & Zambon
What’s A Ghost’s Favorite Candy?
BOOO-BLE GUM of course!
Calling all ghouls, ghosts and goblins to support our troops. Join us,
along with Operation Gratitude, for our first Halloween Candy Buy-Back!
We will pay $1.00 per pound (up
to 5 dollars) for your unopened
Halloween candy (all kinds, including
chocolate). All donors will also
receive a tooth brush as a token
of our thanks. Besides helping our
troops this is a great way to educate
our youth in giving back.
Kids will still have the fun of Trick or
Treating, and now their piggy banks
will benefit as well!
Global sugar consumption for kids increases by about 2%
annually and currently sits at 50 million tons per year. Candy
can lead to hyperactivity, weight gain and tooth decay. In some
cases, the wrong types of candy can also lead to broken teeth and
damaged braces.
Candy will be collected Thursday, November 1st, 2012 from
3:30 to 5:30 p.m. at our office, N112W16760 Mequon Road,
Germantown, WI 53022.
All children must be accompanied by an adult.
We encourage you to bring a “Thank you” letter or a creative
picture to send to our soldiers. It only takes a few minutes and
will bring joy to our troops. The letters will be sent with the
Don’t know where to start?
Express your thanks
Share a little about yourself (child’s first name only)
Talk about sports, weather, pets, hobbies, music, movies
Can’t find words? Draw a picture instead!
The candy and letters will be sent to Operation Gratitude. They
will make individual holiday packages for our troops and ship
them overseas to our soldiers stationed in war zones. What
a great way to brighten the day of an American soldier!
Operation Gratitude has sent well over 675,000 care packages
to individual soldiers all over the world. To find out more about

Golf Poem
For all those who GOLF and for
those who continue to try and
understand why those people golf!
In my hand I hold a ball,
White and dimpled, and rather
Oh, how bland it does appear,
This harmless looking little
By its size I could not guess,
The awesome strength it does
But since I fell beneath its spell,
I’ve wandered through the fires
of hell.
My life has not been quite the
Since I chose to play this stupid
It rules my mind for hours on
A fortune it has made me spend.
It has made me curse and made
me cry,
And hate myself and want to die.
It promises me a thing called par,
If I hit it straight and far.

Wedding Contest WINNER!
Well – you guessed it! Vicki Bodendorfer was the
most accurate in guessing the wedding years of our
team members. Vicki was the winner of the “new”
apple iPad! We had fun seeing the reactions and the
clever questioning techniques of patients the past
few months. Thanks to everyone who participated
in the fun!
that’s fun to share...
ld Socks – Most of us know that for some reason socks either lose their
partners over time or have seen better days and head for retirement. Instead
of throwing them in the trash, give them other jobs around the house with
these 10 ideas from “This Old House” October 2012.
1.First Aid – Slip an ice pack into a sock to temper the chill while
soothing an injury.
To master such a tiny ball,
Should not be very hard at all.
But my desires the ball refuses,
And does exactly as it chooses.
2.Secure Mobile Devices – Create an armband pocket for your mobile
device by cutting off the cuff of a tube sock, slide it onto your arm then
double the material up around your biceps. Tuck the device between the
elastic layers.
It hooks and slices, dribbles and
And disappears before my eyes.
Often it will have a whim,
To hit a tree or take a swim.
3.Rescue Lost Hardware – Slip a sock over the end of a vacuum’s hose,
secure with a rubber band and used the vac’s suction to pick up dropped
screws, nuts, or nails.
With miles of grass on which to
It finds a tiny patch of sand.
Then has me offering up my soul,
If only it would find the hole.
5.Polish Surfaces – A sock can become a reusable or disposable mitt for
waxing furniture or shining silver, brass, or pewter.
It’s made me whimper like a pup,
And swear that I will give it up.
And take to drink to ease my
But the ball knows… I’ll be back
7.Ice-proof Windshield Wipers – Slide knee socks over wipers to prevent
crystals from clinging. Pull off the socks before you leave... no scraping

4.Stop Drafts – Line door jambs and window sills with rice-filled socks to
keep the cold from entering and the warmth from leaving your home.
6.Cushion Your Knees – Cut off the legs of a pair of tube socks and slide
them over your pant legs. Fold the fabric over your knees once or twice
for those jobs around the house that require kneeling.
8.Protect Footwear – Before tackling a dirty or messy job, pull oversized
or stretched out socks over your shoes to keep them clean.
9.Entertain the DOG – Tie a knot at each end of a tube sock and get
ready for a round of tug-of-war.
10.Clean Up – wear a sock as a glove so that you can easily swab the dust
away from every nook and cranny.
What’s in a Soft Drink?
The potentially harmful effects of soft drinks are related to the excessive
consumption of sugar, caffeine, acid, and calories and their subsequent
effects on weight, teeth, and bones. A 20 oz can of soda may contain:
16 teaspoons of sugar, 250 calories, and 91mg of caffeine, plus it has
a pH of 3 (or lower) and contains no minerals, vitamins, or calcium!

Blow Here: New Breathalyzer May
Screen for Diabetes, Cancer, and??
In the 5th Century BC, Hippocrates used the smell of a patients breath as
a diagnostic tool. It took many centuries for Linus Pauling in the 1970’s
to begin to correlate the content of human breath to medical conditions.
Research is continuing and it appears that in the near future we will be able
to detect the presence of diabetes, some types of cancer and some viruses
or bacteria such as anthrax, Salmonella or E.Coli. The technique measures
the presence of acetone, ethanol, methanol, nitric oxide along with other
chemicals as well as the ratios between them. The technique involves a
single breath into the sensor and the response is immediate. It’s extremely
low cost, rapid response and simplicity of the device could lead to much
easier diagnosis of these problems and earlier, more effective treatment.
