'ASK' on those New Year Resolutions of 2009.

Chicago, IL USA: I can't help but look at the Calendar and am started to see that it is already the 31st of the Month, a Month that's seen a lot of Change in government straight across the continental USA; as well as weather conditions, housing markets and life-in-general. Some of it is for 'the good' - although most of it appears rather dismal by prior standards.

However, only a month ago tonight as many of us were dressing up for those gala New Year Festivities, we were anticipating setting new and healthier goals for ourselves in the name of Resolutions that would slim us down; tighten us up and educate us so we would be more competitive in the Workplace of a post-recessionary world that may last much longer than we need it to.

The Question remains: How many stuck to their Promise?

How many fell off the proverbial wagon?

Not that an actual count or census is needed. That falls upon you(rself) totally.

However, for those who have guilt about not sticking to their Plan on making Things better for themselves and/or loved ones, look at it this way:

Tomorrow is the Start of a New Month...a(nother) New Beginning

and it can be used much as January 1st is of each year - a time to start over, dust yourself off and get active about making it the Best Month yet.

That of course is your perogative.

Commentary by: Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith on The $39 Dollar Dress. Deceptive Advertising in a Time of Need.

Chicago, IL USA:

The Dress on the Billboard said it sold for $39.00. That same Dress (in a few months) could go for $5 (or less) at Resale. And, there you are: Out of $34 and tax. According to some Humanitarian Non-Profits, Kids in Third World Countries live on less than $1 a Day. According to other Non-Profits and pretty Sally Struthers, $1 a Day will keep a Child alive.

A $39 Dress, huh?

Seems like it could do alot more than (al)lure People from a Billboard.

ASK's 5TH Faux Fur Fridays

Chicago, IL USA: It's only 9 degrees Fahrenheit here in the Heartland, yet it's warm and toasty for all Individuals who chose to wear one of the best Inventions: FAUX FUR, that coincidentally is 80 years old as of 2009.

Those who are clad in their FAUX FUR coats, jackets, scarves, boots and muffs will be warmer than most and know in their mind that they need not feel guilty about killing Innocent Animals and destroying the Eco-System. Furthermore, Fashion is not delayed by wearing FAUX FUR. When anticipating this cold and brutal January you must bear in mind that it will soon be over in a matter of hours. The Ground Hog, a creature that still is not made into FAUX FUR, will be seeing her or his Shadow on Monday, February 2. Although time-wise, Feb. 2 is exactly 6 weeks till Spring that comes in on March 21, a bit of Old Lore is always something to smile at - especially so as FAUX FUR products are always cheaper than REAL PELTS...and what's there NOT so smile about when $aving Money.

GORF - "The Icon of The Green Movement" turns 4 Today!

Chicago, Illinois USA: Well, it doesn't take alot to turn 4 years old. All is needed is the Passage of 1,461 Days or 25,064 Hours and then you've arrived. That is, IF you are a Human Being. However, there are other Species 'out there' yet 'amongst us' that far surpass a few Decades, Centuries or even Millenniums of living Life. That's just the way Evolution proceeds. One Species that immediately comes to mind is the Amphibian Family - namely THE FROG -- who by clocked Standards is 217,000,000 years old. That's a Lot of Time spent on The Planet, a Planet (The 3rd Rock from The Sun) that is and was 'totally' different than it was Today, or as is said in their Special Kingdom


different that Life in the 21ST Century.

REFLECTIONS IN GREEN: Slipping back to the Morning of Friday, January 28, 2005, I distinctively remember shopping at the local Walgreens on Broadway & Bryn Mawr in Chicago. A Friend had given a Christmas Gift Card to me and I was aiming to spend it on a discounted January Sale Item. However, I got sidetracked in the TOY Section and that would be the Turning Point of my Creative Career and The Green Movement. Some Things are just 'meant to be.' This was when I spotted on the top shelf a Mass of Toys. Standing out from 'The Crowd' was an orange and green plush Toy FROG with a wide Smile that would make the Cheshire Cat's 'small' by comparison. I found myself immediately smiling. As an ardent Toy Collector (who still has my Toys since Birth), I had never seen a Toy with that Amount of Charisma, Appeal and Animal Magnetism. I was physically stopped in my very steps by that Grin. I was stopped me at once. There was something 'working' here that could transcend more than being a TOY. I pulled him off 'the shelf' and raced to the cashier, FROG in arms.

Being a Wordicologist by profession and a PRAMologist (one who enjoys the Art & Act of Public Relations - Advertising - Marketing), it seemed perfectly OK that his Name should be GORF which is FROG spelled 'back-words.' Simplicity is best. And, most celebs are known by short, cute and sweet one-syllabic Names. That unexpected Encounter would start The Wheels into Motion, a non-stop Endeavor that would be known as:

GORF Werks Central ®

where GORF would have a secured Eventological Holidate set aside for him called:

(running from) 2006-2016
with GORF officiating.

Under this Time Allotment, GORF would be addressing specific Campaigns that needed assistance.


The Presents one gets on One's Birthday are discernible by what the Species is. Pet Owners get their Dogs, Bones; their Cats receive Catnip; Birds get a Mobile Swing; Hamsters get an Exercise Bar. However, for TOY Frogs their Message can be best expressed by whoever their Owner is. Granted the Velocity and Intensity that GORF has received the last 1,461 Days would not have come about IF I had not found him and decided he should be(come):

'Chicago's First Green Mascot'
'Illinois Foremost Goodwill Toy Ambassador'
'America's Greenest Mascot'
'Mankind's Most Beloved Toy'
'Nature's Greenest Creature' &
'The Icon of The Green Movement'

Then within no time flat (4 years if you need a Number attached), the following Creative Projects catapulted (or should We redefine that to: FROG-apulted) GORF as Volumes were penned and Photographs (ie: photoGORFs) were snapped. That Listing includes:

GORF's First Manual entitled:
The Making & Marketing of a Pop Icon featuring:

w) GORF & The Shedd-Heads rock-out at The Shedd Aquarium in Chicago.

x) GORF attends The Green Fest at Navy Pier: 2008. Meets Mayor Richard M. Daley. May 17-18, 2008. GORF also attends City-wide Parades and other Cultural Events across Chicago.

y) GORF attends the 50TH Air & Water Show & listens to Gary Senise and the Lt. Dan Band live on August 15, 2008.

z) GORF (along with his GAPH Pals) institute ASK's FAUX FUR FRIDAYS ® that are held throughout 2009 (on every Friday).

To repeat: The Presents received on One's Birthday are discernible by what the Species is. Granted most People do not celebrate their Toys' Birthdays as they do their pet dogs, cats, birds and hamsters. However, once you have met GORF, you'll see why his Day is as special as can be.

And with so much Literature completed in so short a time, it's now The Time to bring on those ribbting 4TH Year Festivities that will include GORF's Favorites as:

Fly a la Mode
Pork Fly Rice
French Flies and Slices of Key Fly Pie...

Celebrating Adrienne's Day International - #9. Rank & File with a Name above The Rest.

Initially printed in KOOPERSMITHin' - the Wednesday, January 23, 2008 Edition:

Yo, Adrienne (Adrian, Hadrian! This Event has your Name written all over it. Celebrating Adrienne's Day International on January 23.

National Adrienne Day ©2001
ASK: Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith
‘America’s Premier Eventologist’
‘The Premier Eventologist in The History of The World’

Dateline: Wednesday, January 23, 2008

Upon the Holidate’s 8TH Year Anniversary in 2008 and now 9TH Year Anniversary as of August 23, 2009

UNIQUE NAMES RULE:The Name, Hadrian has a long, important and religious History. Six of the original 266 Popes (since the Year 32) that have graced the Halls of Christianity and Catholicism were bestowed with it. The Name crosses over and is classy enough for the non-religious sectors to claim as well. The name, Adrian or (H)adrian would soon branch off to cover ‘Adrienne’ (and its spicy derivating Alternates and Synonymic Spellings that include:

Adrianne,Adrean,Adriane,Adriene,Adrianna,Aydrienne,Hadrian,Hadriane andAdriaanas their own. Interestingly enough, ‘Adrienne/Adrian’ is one of the premiering Unisex Names in History although Unisexuality really did not kick-in or pick-up till the 1960s. That Topic will be covered in another Issue of KOOPERSMITHin’ ®.We go through Life with Names and then Numbers attached to our Selves. Those standards are: telephone numbers, social (in)security numbers, credit card and bank account numbers, heights and weight figures, dates and anniversaries, street addresses and even our ages are all computed numerically. Through all the haze comes a really hip, elegant, stylish, sophisticated and stand-apart Name that is encompassed in only 3-syllables.

That is: Adrienne, a name in all its Variations that sound and look good.RESEARCH BEFORE GOOGLE ®:In the 1960s before Doctor Spock hit the Airwaves while ‘Growing Up Koopersmith,’ I referred to Baby Name Books to discover more about my First Name. The Name basically intrigued me. The Statement published said that ADRIAN was Italian in Origin and its Definition was ‘Man of the Sea’ while its Feminine Version, spelled out as ‘Adrienne’ stood for ‘Woman of The Seacoast.’ Most likely it was named after the Adriatic Sea surrounding Italy (located west of the Boot).

However, for me (personally), I found the Name most ironic (yet beautiful to say and write) as I was born a Fire Sign under Leo, The Lion and could not swim. Never-the-less, I wasn’t about to change it since the ‘A’ in Adrienne stood for my Great Grandmother ‘Anna’ Teitelbaum and was a Tribute to her.Now as I google ‘Adrienne,’ that Definition is not written anywhere in sight or on-site, except now on My BLOG, KOOPERSMITHin’ ®, where it will happily rest.As the Assignee or Recipient of ADRIENNE DAY ©2001 that falls on January 23RD, for 2008 upon its 7TH Year Milestone, I have taken the liberty to change its proper Name or Title to:


This methodic Move will now include every Adrienne and its Derivatives (including Males) outside the Shores of The United States of America to celebrate and commemorate the Holidate ®.

For those of you who are unaware, a HOLIDATE is derived from the 2 Terms:

Holiday + Date = Holidate

and is described as a ‘Goodwill, Humanitarian, Altruistic, Educational, Recreational, Spiritual, Fun-Time and Fun-Type Event or Holiday.’

ADRIENNE's DAY INTERNATIONAL ©2008 is only one of over 1,500 more 'Holidates To Celebrate' in:

The Art of Event-Making
Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith’s Campaigns for Humanity ©1990.

TO CONTINUE: The Challenge, of course, is to inform each and every Adrienne and its Derivatives (including Males), but plans to ‘work’ this Holidate have been on the Drawing Board since its Inception. KOOPERSMITHin’ ® will be used as Adrienne Central.Today is the Day for all Adriennes (Adrianne, Adrean, Adriane, Adriene, Adrianna, Aydrienne, Hadrian, Hadriane, Adrian and Adriaan) to celebrate even if you were not born on January 23RD.

It’s an Art to live up to such a fine, historically enriched name but throughout History few Adriennes have let us down. At times like this, we’re pleased that History does repeat itself in a positive manner.The Name, Adrienne is memorable. It’s classically defined. It crosses the Atlantic and from Europe and glides to the Pacific Ocean clearing the South Pacific Brim. “Growing Up Adrienne” most likely will immediately separate a Kid or young Child in Grade and Grammar School from ‘The Pack’ which most often consisted largely of all the Anns, Cathies and Marys as well as the Pauls, Bills and Patricks in the classroom. Such was the case for me until I reached High School circa 1966 when ‘Adrianne D’ (to protect the Innocent) entered The System. I was no longer alone. Which Adrienne/Adrianne were they speaking about?

Inquiring minds wanted to know…IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING:

“To know an Adrienne is to love an Adrienne.”When polled, few People will admit they knew many ADRIENNEs during their Life(times), but may mention those (in passing) who have made a Big Name for themselves.

WONDER OF ALL WONDERS: With the high-powered assistance of Google, type in the name ‘Adrienne’ and within a matter of 0.03 seconds, 11,600,000 Adriennes will electronically appear, thus networking us as quickly as possible.Perform an Advanced Search and 984,000 more Hits appear. The Search can grow more intense as additional Key Words are employed.

School Teachers may want to undertake PROJECT: ADRIENNE ® as a Class Assignment with their Students as the consistent Milestones Adriennes (and her spicy derivating Alternates and Synonimc Spellings of Adrianne, Adrean, Adriane, Adriene, Adrianna, Aydrienne, Hadrian, Hadriane, Adrian and Adriaan) have secured and proven century-in and century-out stand apart both online and off.A Lesson as that can prove to be extremely interesting while opening doors along the ways to pursuing higher Education, Academic Excellence, inspiriing Growth and Learning.

“Plowing thru 187,000 Hits for the Name, Adrienne (per Google on January 20, 2008 at 2 PM), you would instantly believe (without a single doubt) that it was the most popular Name in the Milky Way Solar System. However, it is not in a disparaging way. Around my Household and in my Life & Realm, Adrienne ranks and rates as #1. Understandably other Adriennes would agree with me.”Quote of: Adrienne Sioux KoopersmithTuesday, January 22, 2008The 1990 U.S. Census reported that Adrienne is a very popular Female First name but is seldom a Surname.

The Concerns around Adrienne is that We are always known by our First Name much like Cher, Madonna, Oprah and Hillary. ‘Impressionable’ is what Scholars label it. ‘Monumental’ is what many Adriennes wish and plan to do FOR and DURING their Lifetimes. Remembering them from The Past to The Present to The Future maintains a constant Air that other commonplace names cannot hold a Candle or live up to.


On January 23 of 2001 (slightly 7 months before Terrorism struck American Cities), I was deeply honored when Eric Zorn) one of Chicago’s prominent Columnists and a Member of the Chicago Tribune Staff chose to dedicate a Day and Date to me for the 1,500 HOLIDATES and Eventology Writings I had created since July 25, 1990. This Act(ion) was similar to having a Star named after you or a commemorative Stamp unveiled. Because Eric picked January 23 (1/23) as:


I feel sharing that Tribute with other Adriennes is the appropriate and typically very Adriennesque next proper Step to take in its Evolution. It’s wise. It’s prudent. There is Power in Numbers. Who doesn’t like to receive a Distinction?


Naturally, Celebrations can run ‘The Gamut’ depending on how lavish the Event is to become. Suggestions from ‘My Inner Adrienne’ tell me to hold an International Convention in Adrian, Michigan in 2009 so We can get a Grip on the Essence of Everything Adrienne. After all, Fellow Adriennes (Adrianne, Adrean, Adriane, Adriene, Adrianna, Aydrienne, Hadrian, Hadriane, Adrian and Adriaan) will agree that:“We have come a long ways, Baby!”since the antiquated Days of the Hadrian Popes.Thanks to Eric Zorn’s Designation: “We have arrived full Circle.”From that initial Convention or Conference,

an ADRIENNE-O-PEDIA ©2001-10

can be written of which I could, should and would act as Editor-In-Chief. Every enrolled Adrienne (and her/his Derivative) would have a Booth in which to Adrienne-icize their Wares, Cares, Campaigns, Interests and Contributions they have given to Society.

January 23RD is the Date in Calendrical Time for all Adriennes (no matter how the Name is spelled to celebrate their Name’s rich Heritage. Additional Exposure, Fun & Opportunity await each Adrienne. Restaurants should give us a sizable discount after showing a valid I.D. Other Retail Freebies should be enacted to draw in the Adrienne ‘Vote of Approval’ for this highly special Day.

RANKING THE NAME: When Numbers seem to make an Impact“Rankings of our Name do not really matter as We prefer the Name keeping its uniqueness. Babies can be born consistently; however, few grow up to be(come) a tried and true Adrienne.”

Claiming Credit for the Creation of the Name, ADRIENNEThe Fight is on:Five (5) different Meanings of the Name, Adrienne are:

1. From Hadria (a Person hailing from Hadria located in Northern Italy)

2. Day of Fire

3. The Calling

4. Woman of The Seacoast

5. Man of The Sea

SEA-ing is Believing:The Adriatic Sea is a Section of the Mediterranean Sea, a Body of Water dividing the Balkan from the Italian Peninsula. The Name can be traced back to the Times of Antiquity with the Ancient Romans’ Latin. ‘Adria’ (or Hadria) (as a term) is most likely sourced from the Illyrian word, adur denoting ‘Sea or Water.’ Correlating Medieval Latin’s terms are Adriaticum, Hadrianus and/or Hadriaticum.“All Names have Meanings. Some of us grow into our Names. Some of us don’t. Folks should not be named until they are between the Ages of 13-15 to make sure that their Name is befitting of their Character and Attitude. Quality, not quantity is what the Core Value is here.”

Probably no other name in Contemporary Times has so many Off-Shoots as Adrienne. A large Range of Names exists because of the Similarity of Languages, Tribes and ongoing Migrations when People travelled and spread across The Planet during the Age of Exploration. For thousands of years, this Breaking of Barriers (through nomadic expeditions, conquests, via the Crusades, etc.) became the Sources of these Multiple Name Origins where more than one Meaning and Spelling evolved in each Location.

ORIGINS OF ADRIENNE:The French meaning of the Women’s Name ‘Adrienne’ implies dark and emanating from the Adriatic Sea Region. The Female Name ‘Adrienne’ (ad-rienne, adri(en)-ne) is pronounced AY-dree-en. Adrian is its French Male Counterpart.The Greek Meaning of the Women’s Name ‘Adrienne’ with Adrian as a variant, connoting ‘dark and rich.’The Latin Meaning of the Women’s Name ‘Adrienne’ mean from the Adriatic Region and (again) dark.After infiltrating the major Languages of Ages ago, it would not take long for The Saints to have their own Days. According to the Google Nation, ‘Adrian’ is the Patron Saint of Soldiers and Butchers.What’s Good for The Goose is Genteel for the Gander: Exploring the Male Side:It’s a Name that’s as good for the Goose as it is for the Gander.

In Poland, Germany, Russia, Romania and English-speaking Countries, Adrian is the Masculine Gender. Pronunciations are different, of course, but the Root can be traced to earlier French, Latin and Greek Names.ADRIENNE GOES GLOBAL:Just how popular is the Name, Adrienne. Let’s take a look at five (5) important Adriennic Timelines and Locations for the Name.261ST - as a Woman’s Name in Canada (BC) circa 2001Personally, I cannot think of 260 more important Names (better than Adrienne) in Canada.

389TH - as a Female Name in Australia (NSW) circa 2000

Personally, I cannot think of 388 more important Names (better than Adrienne) in Canada.

449TH - as a Woman’s Name in Australia (NSW) circa 2003Personally, I cannot think of 448 more important Names (better than Adrienne) in Australia.

706TH - as a Female Name in Australia (NSW) circa 1998

Personally, I cannot think of 705 more important Names (better than Adrienne) in Australia.

3,016TH - as a Woman’s Name in Belgium circa 2002

Personally, I cannot think of 3,015 more important Names (better than Adrienne) in Belgium.“Interestingly enough, from the 5-Tier Listing above, the Evidence leads us conclusively to believe that Adriennes live in the USA, Canada, Australia and Belgium although the Name itself is Greek, Latin and French in Origin. With Starvation, Terrorism, Homelessness in our World, Global Warming and a medley of unconquerable Diseases plaguing complete societies, is it really that important to rank Names? For the sake of Pop Culture, it is. For the Survival and Duration of The Species, apparently not.”

Scores of Hospitals must be visited to arrive at these Statistics:In 2005, Adrienne ranked as 728THIn 2000, Adrienne ranked as 529THIn 1995, Adrienne ranked as 408THIn 1990, Adrienne ranked as 240THWithin fifteen (15) years, ADRIENNE (as a Name) has fallen 488 Popularity Points.Perusing the Decades, for me, it’s ‘of interest’ to see that when I was born in August of 1952, ADRIENNE reached its Peak of Popularity.

Adrienne ranked in as 335TH from 1990 – 1999.
Adrienne ranked in as 189TH from 1980 – 1989.
Adrienne ranked in as 201ST from 1970 – 1979.
Adrienne ranked in as 342ND from 1960 – 1969.
Adrienne ranked in as 336TH from 1950 – 1959.
Adrienne ranked in as 432ND from 1940 – 1949.
Adrienne ranked in as 405TH from 1930 – 1939.
Adrienne ranked in as 633RD from 1920 – 1929.
Adrienne ranked in as 730TH from 1910 – 1919.
Adrienne ranked in as 699TH from 1900 – 1909.

An active and concerted effort to improve the Visibility of all Adriennes since the Name’s popularity has been waning and has fallen ‘hard’ since 1990. Therefore, to insure that Adrienne ranks higher for The Decade of 2000-2009, an active campaign – even one via word-of-mouth – should be launched towards Couples giving Birth to Twins. Therefore, the Girl Baby can be called Adrienne and her Brother, Adrian. With high rates of fertility, that move alone would substantially increase Adrienne’s Popularity up the Scales.'I' BEFORE 'E':

CONCLUSION: For all the Effectiveness, Skill, Creativity, Production and Color an Adrienne adds to a Day, We deserve our very own Day and January 23RD is it. Thanks to (Mr.) Eric Zorn, he has given us our Day in the Sun. Although I may be firmly biased in my Stand, my Inclination towards my First Name Adrienne is three-fold in nature as:

1. 'Adrienne' was my Mother’s Best Friend’s Name in grade school;

2. 'Adrienne' is a Name given to me honoring my Maternal Great-Grandmother, Anna, thus keeping the Genealogy in line(age); and

3. 'Adrienne' consistently reminds me of my 3 favorite Action Words: Adventure, Adrenalin & Advertising that I have harmoniously woven into my Lifestyle. Adrienne – in all its breadth, depth, length, glory and history – beats out being given another lackluster Number that needs to be memorized. My Salute becomes your Salute in Namesake alone.”

FAUX FUR FRIDAYS #4 celebrates with the Acquisition of a New Member...

Chicago, IL USA: This morning as I commenced on my 3F: Faux Fur Friday Events, I stopped in to one of our Favorite Haunts - a resale shop where deals are made that can save a Family not only Precious Time but so much Money, they can actually eat, pay some bills and come away with an Item that is extremely extraordinary.

And Today, FAUX FUR FRIDAY (R) was no different. As a matter of fact, it was here that I found, purchased and have now placed in GORF's Permanent Family (ie: GORFamily) the latest Member of his Crusade to greenicize the Planet.


a plump, pure white Snow Owl with the largest taxi cab yellow eyes ever seen on a Toy. Now, Amber (the Vervet of The GORFamily) has amber eyes with fluttery eyelashes; whereby HOOT here has eyes as large as can be. If a person placed THE OWL amongst some leaves or outside, no doubt he/she (haven't decided what gender he/she will be yet) would startle people, thinking he was the REAL BIRD.

And, appropriately so since one of the latest Chapters of my FAUX FUR FRIDAYS' BOOK has a chapter introducing the inclusion of:

Kvetching About Slavery. The Numbers prove it.

Chicago, IL USA: The Formula has never been simpler. Twenty-Six Hundred Years ago, The Jewish Tribe(s) were hard at work — as Slaves — laboring away in an Early Egypt - sweating profusely away, making bricks, baking bricks, hauling bricks and pounding the sandy terrain into what would become one of the longest-lasting Structures the Ancient & Modern Worlds have ever seen. Yes, Jews were labeled as ‘Slaves’ long before recording History and the day-by-day Episodes of Life & Living were even popularized.

Geographically, Egypt is also located in Africa — in the Northeast Corner for those Individuals who cannot navigate Cartography and are not adept Geographic Buffs and Pros. Therefore, you can easily see and say that because Africa is renowned as the Fertile Delta or Cradle of Civilization — and Home of Lucy, the first Ape-like Creature to resemble Man. Bearing this Fact in mind, the Jews (then) are also Afro-Americans (only because they, too, were on the Continent known as Africa ‘slaving and toiling away’) whose Histories as ‘CareTakers of The Earth’ go back further than the 211 Year History of the United States and its Embattlement with Chattel Slavery and Indentured Servitude. Since Man (himself) emanated out of Africa and has been Migratory since, those Residents of the United States are all ‘technically’ African-Americans. Demographers conclude, then, that all Denominations hail from Africa, whether your current Residence is the Arctic, Albany, Atlanta or the Amazon.

Jews and Jewish-Wannabes (and you know who you are) can easily identify with Blacks and their long, harsh and impersonalized History of Enslavement. For it is only then that the Sweet Taste of Freedom and Creativity unfolds and becomes most appreciated for its Depth, Width and, of course, as the Cycle perpetuates (itself): (into) History.

Furthermore, as Culture & Civilization have proven throughout (the Test of) Time: We all get by with 'a Little Help from our Friends' no matter where We call ‘Home’ on The Planet Earth or what our Descent was.


If not for Slavery, would anything ever get completed?

That’s really is the only logical Question of The Day, Today. It doesn’t pay to complain, get sick over or seek vengeance about the Amount of Years a Tribe has been enslaved. The 20TH & 21ST Century Housewife feels she is, has been and may always remain a Slave to her Family. It depends on how the word is defined.

If 'We built this City on Rock n' Roll,' then the greatest Civilizations were built on Slavery and for those who were so enslaved, they can be dually proud of their tumultuous Legacy, no matter how long and grueling it was. It is the Grand Picture that ultimately matters, whereby losing sight of the Forest for the Trees is only human.

WITHOUT BEING STUCK IN THE PAST: The Dilemma merely depends on how well-lived your Life becomes that matters in the Long Haul. As ZH once stated: What matters? Keeping those 2 simple prolific Words in mind keeps us on-track.

THROW ME A BONE Day ©2009 - When in Doubt, eventologize. Quote of ASK.

Chicago, IL USA: You could not have found a happier or more enthusiastic Person than when GOOD MORNING AMERICA (ABC/New York City) interviewed actress Viola Davis for her Oscar Nomination in 'Doubt.' There was no Doubt about her Happiness which really was a 'shake-up' call for any of those who wake up groggy, cranky or unappreciative of what a New Day potentially offers. In her excitement she thanked Oprah Winfrey who decided not to take the Role by saying that she:

"threw me a Bone."

And with that Opportunity, Viola ran with The Role and now is becoming a Household Name and pursuing her Art. Certainly (as History has noted) others have been given their BIG BREAK in countless of ways. Certainly others have not gotten their BIG BREAK yet. Certainly others are 'on the verge' of breaking BIG. Others are not even concerned about Breaks, be they little or big ones. It's all dependent on what's on your menu and schedule. However, for those who need a Break and for those who do offer the Ability to GIVE A BREAK, today is eventologically set aside and marked as:

THROW ME A BONE Day ©2009.

Reaching out and seeing that another's Dreams are coming true is certainly the Mark of a foresighted and unselfish Person. There's 'NO DOUBT' about that. And just like the Family Dog, getting an additional Treat - a Bone -- does (un-DOUBT-edly) brighten up 'The Moment.'

Tired but Happy. How Eventology suits a Need (for Sleep). A Salute to Fatigue.

Chicago, IL USA: For those that traveled miles and did not sleep for days in order to see for themselves the Historical Impact that Barack Obama's Inauguration would make, the new Holidate known as:


has been created. Not that we need an Excuse to be tired. Sometimes Life-in-general with its stresses and strains seems to wear us out.

HOWEVER: On Wednesday, January 21, after Folks of all denominations, ages, races, creeds and colors returned back home from Washington, DC -- and even those who were glued to their TV sets and Personal Computers @ home on Inauguration Day, there is a physical let-down, but the Feeling of being TIRED, BUT HAPPY seems to sum up their Mood to the T.

"After all, if you're going to be tired, you might as well be happy about it."

How Jews relate to a Black Presidency. Insights from America's Premier Eventologist on Day #1 of Obama's Presidency.

Chicago, IL USA:

The Formula has never been simpler. Twenty-Six Hundred Years ago, The Jewish Tribe(s) were hard at work -- as Slaves -- laboring away in an Early Egypt sweating profusely away, making bricks, baking bricks, hauling bricks and pounding the sandy terrain into what would become one of the longest-lasting Structures the Ancient & Modern Worlds have ever seen. Yes, Jews were labeled as ‘Slaves’ long before recording History was even popularized.

Geographically, Egypt is also located in Africa -- in the Northwest Corner for those Individuals who cannot navigate Cartography and are not adept Geographic Buffs and Pros. Therefore, you can easily see and say that because Africa is renown as the Fertile Delta of Civilization -- and Home of Lucy, the first Ape-like Creature to resemble Man, then, the Jews are also Afro-Americans whose Histories as ‘CareTakers of The Earth’ go back further than the 211 Year History of the United States and its Embattlement with Chattel Slavery and Indentured Servitude.

Jews and Jewish-Wannabes (and you know who you are) can easily identify with Blacks and their long harsh History of Enslavement, then, Freedom and Creativity which unfolds and becomes appreciated for its Depth, Width and, of course, History. Furthermore, as Culture & Civilization have proven throughout (the Test of) Time: We all get by with a Little Help from our Friends no matter where We call ‘Home’ on The Planet Earth or what our Descent was. If not for Slavery, would anything ever get completed - that's what is really the Question of The Day, Today.

Inauguration Day 2009: How KOOPERSMITH's International Volunteers' Day (C)1994 sets the Stage for...

a New Tomorrow.

Chicago, IL USA: As Barack Obama becomes the 44th President of the United States of America, a change is definitely in the Air. Upon looking back at her complete list of 1900+ HOLIDATES TO CELEBRATE, Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith sees that her Holidate:

International Volunteers' Day

that was coined and made EVENTOLOGICAL in 1994 is all the rage for People seeing that there is a better, sweeter and kinder way of 'Doing Life.'

At this time -- Inauguration Day -- of 2009, ADRIENNE is upholstering her popular Holidate and will be promoting it to all the correct Avenues that can further define her EVENTOLOGICAL work as that which falls nothing short of award-meritorious.

Said updated HOLIDATE:


will be sent straight to the White House -- to The Obamas -- as well as other worthy individuals who will now see that the Buzz Word is not something immature or clad in a Hollywood Celebs misinterpretations about the(ir) world but in the Efforts ADRIENNE has diligently defined in:

The Art of Event-Making
Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith's Campaigns for Humanity (C)1990

that she ardently began on Wednesday, July 25, 1990.

Stayed tuned for more Adventures in the Literary Format known as EVENTOLOGY.

WWGCA: What Would God Complain About?

Chicago, IL USA:

The Analysis or (more likely) ANAL-ization of THE COMPLAINT

The Analysis
or (more likely)

Complaining (in and of itself) is an Act.

However, the Discography of THE COMPLAINT itself is an Art. Absolutely so. It’s shrouded in Layers of pensive Thoughts, Behaviors and Attitudes that are as individualistic as The Person who airs them. Even each ‘Airing’ (Rant or Rave) has a Degree of Severity (not Civility) in it. Letting lose and letting go ‘of a COMPLAINT’ is a Method of De-Stressing much like an Alcoholic finds (temporary) Comfort (Northern or Southern in Locale) in a Keg of Beer, Glass of Wine, Shot of Bourbon or Bottle of Champagne.

However, Whine-ing can be short-lived and THE COMPLAINER (for the most Part) is a Constant. Said COMPLAINT remains unleashed. The Degree of Sentimentality may be lessened. The Emotion may be temporarily gone, but as for its Physicality, a COMPLAINT is easily discernible and is like a Pimple: It pops out and explodes when it wants to. Bottling up a COMPLAINT can lead to dogmatic Internal Problems that can be costly in the long run.

The Core Group revolves around:

YOU: Your COMPLAINTS, Grudges and Maddening Experiences can range from breaking a Nail to losing Millions in an ailing Financial Downturn.

FAMILY: How Family Members annoy you can be summed up in a COMPLAINT (if not more). SO much for the ‘Extended Family’ that sociologists are touting. If you are rated as a prolifically compulsive Writer, at times like these, the Merriam-Webster Synonym Dictionary (found at comes in handy and automatically eases THE COMPLAINT. That is: By finding an Outlet to spill your COMPLAINT may be therapeutic. The Act of Reading itself (as in Reading others COMPLAINTS on this Website) acts cathartically.

FRIENDS: You can choose your Friends and not your Family. INSERT: And Experts wonder why so many People (including Adults) run away from Home. To continue: Many Friendships break up (as Marriages do) because too many COMPLAINTS are lodged against that Person, Place, Things or Circumstances that becomes too unbearable. After a certain Point, Intolerance sets in and it just does not pay (on and for any Grounds of Sanity whatsoever) to keep The Friendship alive.

AT WORK: Bosses ignite an entirely new Level for THE COMPLAINER. With a Degree of Power in place, no one really complains about what The Boss is doing. Jeopardizing One’s Job (especially in this precarious Job Market) is definitely Taboo and not a wise thing-to-do. This may be the leading Reason why World Economics is as degraded as it has become the last 3-4 years. The Leader (in any Organization) is The Boss. The Followers (in any Organization) are the Employees. A Class System again is put into place. The above Subjects warrant Grounds for ‘COMPLAINTS.’ After a Month passes, an Assortment of COMPLAINTS begin to build. Blowing The Whistle on The Boss is now an Industry of its own Accord that’s seen on every TV & Radio Channel, Website & Blog across The Planet. It’s a Travesty of Justice and Goodwill when COMPLAINING does not get to do what it does best, but is breached for the Advancement of a Cunning Few. One Party always remains that is left in Despair with solidifying COMPLAINTS.

Locating an Outlet that finally filters the Air (that acts as a Purification System) is a sure-fire Way to lay a COMPLAINT to rest, even just for The Present, as many COMPLAINTS have the Tendency to occur and resurface.

In a post-industrialized, techno-World that began at The Turn of The 1900s, Individuals began thinking (which is Step #1 to the complete Compilation and Registering of a COMPLAINT) along these 4-Lines:

Am I pretty or handsome enough?
Am I slim enough?
Am I smart enough?
Am I rich enough?

JUMPING INTO THAT TIME MACHINE: Back in the Days of ‘Little House on the Prairies’ of Kansas in 1850, there weren’t too many Teen Magazines to thumb through; Colleges to attend or Diet Books to peruse. The Amount of Time “getting down, dirty, nasty and spiteful about yourself was severely limited, as Survival (defined on Page 1187, Column One of the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary ©1999) in a new Territory was topping the TO DO List. Nothing else was of that utmost importance. Looks, Body Image, Brains or Money were not in their Top Ten List. No petty and insignificant Acts/Actions that many (if not most) COMPLAINTS are structured around Today were posted on the TO DO List of 1850. Their Value and Material System was plainly based on a different Set of Criteria than ours is.

The Degree or Richness of a COMPLAINT is also interesting. After all, how good can a COMPLAINT be if there isn’t anything to judge it (up) against? Would a COMPLAINT even be an Actuality if there was nothing to compare it to? Time and Personalities are the Two (2) Factors that color a COMPLAINT and give it its Pizzazz - all the more, adding to its Dimensionality.

Is there not a slight Difference between COMPLAINING that the last Chocolate cream-filled Cupcake was eaten compared to a Ponzi Scheme that left a Family barren, broke, homeless and forlorn? What’s considered serious to One Person may not be to another. A serious COMPLAINT to one Person could be the Brunt of a Joke to another. Besides Belief Systems, add in different Cultures, Borders and Political Parties and then, the Gamut of what is COMPLAINARY paints an entire different Picture.

This Verbiage also brings up a few Questions and Facts:

How long does or will a COMPLAINT last?

How stressful can a COMPLAINT be before it garners Anxiety, a Heart Attack or Stroke?

And, of course, the Universal Differential that’s portrayed as COMPLAINT Severity, i.e.:

Does Money buy a COMPLAINT-Free World?

As an Example: Do those Individuals in Darfur (who are starving that managed to get through the Carnal Slaughter, Rape and Genocide), have time to complain. If so, do their COMPLAINTS ever end? Whom do they complain to? How long can they exist with this Clamor in their Lives? Tracing a similar Plight, in the 1960s, Children in Biafra were starving. Did their Pleas go up against Deaf Ears? If not, then why is there such overt never-ending Poverty, Despair & Pain in The World (now some 50 years later) if there’s Plenty of People (dealing in Goods & Services) and Organizations to complain to, whose Goal is to react in Kindness and Generosity? How are COMPLAINTS registered at Customer Service Departments and what Percentage of COMPLAINTS are alleviated yearly?

Can a COMPLAINT be heard and eased by a Greater Power than Mortal Man? In other words, for those whose lives are based upon (a) Religion:
WWGCA: What Would God Complain About?

In other words, insulated in our own Home Units (whether it’s a Villa in the South of France, a Farm in Georgia, a Trailer Court in Kentucky; a Time-Share in Cancun or a Co-op Penthouse in New York City, COMPLAINTS permeate ‘The Scene’ and lodge themselves in The Psyche of Man so that Discussions (as these) can be aired on Websites as Richard’s.

Many Global Religions and 12-Step Programs hold a Ritual each December 31 to cleanse themselves of THE COMPLAINTS they previously experienced as Arrogances and Troubles that followed them through the ‘Last Year.’ The Process is to list those Grievances on a Page of Paper and then toss them into a Vat burn or burn them up in a Fire(place). Therefore, they are symbolically removed forever and no one is haunted by them any longer.

No Research (to the best of my Knowledge) was ever done to see if a(ny of these) COMPLAINTS ever return, like the Swallows to Capistrano that arrive like clockwork on March 19 (after leaving Goya, Argentina (beyond the Andes) on the 18TH of February, flying some 7500 Miles in 30 Days, at an Altitude of above 2,000 feet). Do those Swallows complain as they are ardently keep flying away from vicious Predators, Airbuses, Jet Aircraft and Miles of Smoggy Pollution on their Way to their Destination? That, at most, is an ingrained Tendency. COMPLAINTS are learned or acquired although some surface due to personal Traits or unforeseen Dramas. Removing them appears to be more of a Psychological Cleansing. And, if it alleviates The Problem – THE COMPLAINT or The Issue (at hand) then rest assured before long, another COMPLAINT will arise. However, the Person is then free till the next COMPLAINT arises and can get something important done instead of ‘stewing’ in his or her COMPLAINT. Seen another Way: The Dynamics of the COMPLAINT has done its Job and served an important Purpose in The Daily Life of 21ST Century Man.

One Thing is for certain. The COMPLAINTS a Person has at age 10 are totally different than those of a 30, 50 or 70 year old. The Structure of a COMPLAINT grows more complicated as an Adult straddles through his/her Decades and with what(ever) he/she embodies, faces and knows.

Simultaneously, Location & Financial Standing (or Means) also play significant Roles in ‘The Everyday COMPLAINT.” Historically and prehistorically, it was (only) Cave Man who had just one COMPLAINT. Their COMPLAINT was surviving The Day and making it through The Night without being eaten by large, man-eating Carnivores. What was a COMPLAINT to Neanderthal definitely was not a COMPLAINT to Contemporary Man. For the most Part, no large woolly Mammoths frightfully stampede or lurk through the Cities or Forests of our Planet today. Occasionally, We will see a Grizzly Bear or Deer check-out a backyard garbage can for a morsel or two if their Food Allowance has been jeopardized. The Viewing of one’s Conditions is directly linked to THE COMPLAINTS We have, hold and pass along to Others.

How the COMPLAINT evolved:
Early Man did not complain about who won or lost the SuperBowl; if Bus Fares are escalating or if his mother-in-law is interfering (again). It may not have been ‘that much of a COMPLAINT, as a perceived important life-or-death Goal to reach. In other Words: On the ‘Reichter Scale of COMPLAINTS,’ there are complaints and then, there are COMPLAINTS. COMPLAINTS may appear ‘in disguise’ for you to CHANGE - a Change may do you good.

“If COMPLAINTS are perceived or interpreted as a Disguise that seeks for you to change or implants the Notion that ‘Change is in the Air,’ then that Message may hold positive good for The Recipient. Unfortunately, for Contemporary Man, there are too many Choices than can lead him/her astray and into the cobblestoned Dilemmas of Living a Life filled with COMPLAINTS. Knowing others are suffering with them, too, secures the Fact that DNA & COMPLAINTS are forever binding and are woven as a colorful Part of our Lives that we’ve grown to (for no other word) than to COMPLAIN about...”

FROM THE CREATOR OF INTERNATIONAL THANK YOU DAYS (C)94/5/6/8, Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith: Closing in on Intellectual Property Thieves.

Dateline: Saturday, January 10, 2009 - 1:49 PM CST

Chicago, IL USA:

On the Eve of INTERNATIONAL THANK YOU DAYS (C)1994/5/6/8 that I created which begins on Sunday, January 11, 2009 and marks its 15TH Year, that is an 8-day celebration that thanks specific Types/Groups and Services (of People) who make our Days better, I cannot help but see via electronic Alerts the exorbitant and growing number of Websites (commercial in nature and not artistic) that have blatantly stolen, lifted and used this HOLIDATE (like many of my others) that I copyrighted in 1994 to use for commercial money-making endeavors without giving me a cent. The top ones are:

Blue Mountain eGreeting Cards
Crayola Crayon & (formerly Binney Smith)
The Daily (%: Michael de Jong)
Andrew Holmes (UK & Northern Ireland)
Yahoo Greetings with American Greetings
MSN Greetings with American Greetings
My Daily

(For starters) as others have appeared in previous years.

Truly, the amazing issue hre is that these people/corporations have NO idea about what Copyright Infringement is. But my attorneys are hot on their Trail and like the GREED that brought Wall Street down and the global economy to a relative halt, they will not get away with this. The evidence has been mounting the last 18 years since I began:

The Art of Event-Making
Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith's Campaigns for Humanity (C)1990.

They will get their just rewards. This HOLIDATE TO CELEBRATE will outlive them and their SIN-ister Methods of STEALING.

In the meantime, to keep with the Theme of my INTERNATIONAL THANK YOU DAYS (C)1994/5/6/8, I am grateful this year for the following that quickly come to mind:

1) My excellent health

2) My continuous crative Streak that is portrayed here in my blog, KOOPERSMITHin (R) and the creation of now more than 1,900 HOLIDATES, making me undecidedly Hallmark's greatest competition for years now although I've always considered my writing in a class of their own.

3) Farmers who get my Food to me and the Shops & Grocery Stores in which I purchase these tasty morsels that allow me to pursue other activities instead of tending to the Harvest.

4) Libraries (those magnificent institutions) whose doors are open as a safe haven for the flourishment of my creativity. And, of course, those Librarians themselves who are considered 'Our first Search Engines.'

5) Special friends and you know WHO you are.

6) My bike repair man and his family who have made the Act & Art of bike-riding a family affiar for over 60 years now. The Shop is located within a 3-minute walk of my home. He has been a symbol of exercise for boys & girls (now adults and grandparents) for the last 60 years.

7) My Tuesday Writer's group that offers ways for members to think outside the 'box of #2 pencils.'

Every day is one in which we should be thankful. for those inquisitive, this HOLIDATE is dedicated to my Kindergarten Teacher, Miss Lucille Fritz who aided me greatly in my Creativity as a 5-year old in Mendota, Illinois circa 1957 at Blackstone Grade School. She did not live long enough to see the Event begin and become one of the most plagarized Writings on the Internet, but I am sure she would be proud knowing that she (even in death) is remembered and deeply thanked throughout the decades. The original:

(which is 40 pages in length)

is now archival. Each of my 1,900 HOLIDATES TO CELEBRATE (that falls into 39 specific categories & classifications) is accompanied by a HOW-TO PROPERLY CELEBRATE SAID HOLIDATE.

As for those who are stealing my prolific writings: So they want to be ROCK STAR Writers and can't write a word; can't create as I do...and think they can get away with it. Not for long...

"Be's a Realization few utilize until it's too late..."

When in Doubt: COMPLAIN. The new Rx for 2009.

Chicago, IL USA:

Richard Friedman's Website, allows People (of all ages) to do what they do best:


After all, Man developed Vocal Chords, Sound(s), Speech and Language in order to 'Give Voice' and 'raise his Voice' in matters that concert and disconcert his moral, immoral and amoral upbringing (or lack of it). This is Part of the Fun, Excitement and Educational Learning (as well as Networking Opportunities) that the Internet has given us. Contrary to popular belief, not everyone is rocked by the same Complaint. A tasty Example is:

A baker complains if his/her cake falls, whereby a dieter (who lives cake-free) could care less.

CONTINUING: But since most of us are programmed to CARE (about something even hardened Criminals may have 1 or 2 Cares hidden deep down), if that CARE is harmed, scarred or averted, then a Major Complaint can fester, grow and ultimately explode from that pressurizing Issue.

The Challenge of Complaining is universal; however, for those with little on their Plate (Amazon Rain Forest Pygmies with few clothes, video games or text messaging devices immediately come to my mind), then they really have no real Anxieties as a Rate of Comparison. They may not even use Plates (as we know a plate to be). As a People, they may be more docile, loving and peaceful. I'm guessing all this since I've never done any significant research on any Amazon Pygmy Groups, but would highly guess that as soon as civilized Man (and those from the National Geographic Team) stepped into their neck-of-the-woods, they were not as willing to share nor were they happy with the Advent of Change and/or Assimiliation. Who would be?

Granted C&A: Change & Assimilation are top Priorities in Washington Government for 2009, for the average Westernized Person in an industrialized state of mind and world, who is not an ardent Revolutionary, the easiest Way to vent their Rage and Outrage (or less pressing matters, states of conditions) and mal-contentedness is to COMPLAIN. As a logical being, Man complaints when he/she does not get their way. Therefore, selfishness does play a primary role in this entire interesting and debatable dynamic.

As of yet, Richy F (exalted Chieftain: Richard Friedman) doesn't have a sound-activated Website where voice blurbs can be down and/or uploaded. All he asks is that you sit down and write your Complaints up. Then, submit them online where they will last until the next Ice Age cometh. All Complaints are welcome. What's a complaint to one may be a compliment to another.

And on this cold and icy day in Chicago, IL in early January, 2009, as We patiently await the weekend to start and Happy Hour to kick-in, my major Complaint as the Founder of: FAUX FUR FRIDAYS (R) is that not enough People are wearing FAUX FUR. Not only is Faux Fur cheaper and kinder, many Websites are calling the Manufacturers of FAUX FUR an anti-green process whereby deadly Chemicals that are used in its preparation are harmful to our Environment, a battle that has been waging for decades now.

Slinging snowballs as this does not take into consideration the enormous amounts of Wildlife that is saved from Extinction and an early Death by merely wearing man-made fabrics that create extra jobs for a dismal and bleak employment future for many workers. Yet another FAUX FUR Complaint warrants the feature (not future in this case) of the snowcaps, glaciers and icebergs that are rapidly melting and disappearing from sight; thus destroying the Homes of these large creatures -- many that are hunted, trapped and slaughtered for their Pelts.

Complaining about too many cars, exhaust systems causing black holes in the atmosphere and ozone layers and unseasonably strange climactic conditions (as an unusally strong number ofmore hurricanes and tornados criss-crossing the USA) are sure-fire ways to complain about how Mankind himself may be on the Endangered Species List. Besides Animals who've been hunted since Neanderthal Times and whose Histories go back millions of years, even out-living the mighty Dinosaur.

Oh, the Complaints we can launch about the Weather, Climate, Global Warming and 'Furs vs. Foes' that we wear or don't wear could fill up Volumes. And it does. For our sake and Mr. Friedman's, it's reassuring to know that Cyberspace, like the Art & Act of limitless, without bounds and is something we all have: An Opionion that is jaded, but still our very own to love and cultivate...

As Letters to the Editor served a Purpsoe in 20th century journalism and newspapers, Rich Friedman's found the perfect FAUX-rum (R) to let the People have their say: One Complaint at a time. Feel better: Complain. And, wear Faux Fur.

From The Creator of NATIONAL SMITH DAY ©1995: Celebration #15 slated for January 6, 2009. Calling All Smiths & Smith-Wannabe's.

SUBTITLE: Eventology @ its Finest...

Chicago, IL USA: National Smith Day ©1995 was merely created as an intensive Means for me to easily trace my Ancestry (back) in order to locate other long, lost Relatives who may have dropped either the 'Kooper' or the 'Smith' in the Surname of: KOOPERSMITH (which is my Last Name) when entering the USA in the early 1900s, over 100 years ago. While researching this common Phenomenon and Practice that destroys (a) Family's Legacy (of Origins), I actually found and decided to put this Event on the Birth of the First Individual responsible for the Americanization & Assimilation of the United States, Captain John Smith, the English Colonial Leader who settled Jamestown, Virginia in 1607 thereby bringing so many People to our Shores (no matter what their Names were). Wednesday, January 6, 1580 was his Birth Date, therefore, this HOLIDATE ® is appropriately dedicated to Captain Smith and the Efforts he set forth, post morten. And, also because of this KOOPERSMITHian Event (that was so successfully launched in 1995), The General Population is exploring their own Genealogy and Name-Sakes and finding there's nothing quite like tracing their Ancestry back...way order to get in touch with their Real Roots and Heritage. Educational, Fun and a Learning Experience all rolled into one, ASK's NATIONAL SMITH DAY ©1995 is for those bona fide SMITHS or SMITHS Wannabe's.

This multi-faceted HOLIDATE ® also stresses the Great Importance of ASKing (y)our Grandparents Questions about their Youth, Philosophies and Viewpoints while We are still blessed having them with us. The SMITHS-hood Standard remains as this: During a Seance held on Thursday, January 6, 1999 (upon the HOLIDATE's 5TH Commemoration), Captain Smith was 'called back from Beyond' and in a Spontaneous Meeting discussed with ADRIENNE the Plethora of SMITHS (in Name & Occupation both) who have (at their Root) on other derivative Names as: Koopersmith, Arrowsmith, Coppersmith, Goldsmith, Metalsmith, Silversmith, etc. as SMITH is the most Common Surname in the English Language.

Because of the Popularity of NATIONAL SMITH DAY ©1995, KOOPERSMITH has been asked by Fans to 'expand this HOLIDATE.' Currently, she has completed writing One-Third of:

that objectively outlines the Dogma of NATIONAL SMITH DAY ©1995 on a broader and wider perspective and those Subjects (as her Relatives) who have 'smithified' ® the World. Her Card and Board Game entitled:

NAME THAT SMITH ©1995-2009

is currently being produced.

For those Individuals who wish to be kept apprised of other top SMITHian Projects, Books, Endeavors throughout the upcoming year, break-throughs, accomplishments, etc., join ADRIENNE SIOUX KOOPERSMITH's SMITH SYNDICATION SOCIETY ®. Membership is set at only $30.00 per SMITH for 2009. "After all, it's a Brother-& Sisterhood of Smiths," ASK exclaims.

ASK hits 1500 Biking Miles, setting Records - slimming Thighs. How to happily delve into your New Year Resolutions.

Chicago, IL USA: I am sad to say, it was an early winter cold, congestion and the fact that phlegm does build up greatly when biking that stopped me from peddling around town, some 8-10 miles per day in mid-November (2008). However, with bits and pieces of sun-shine coming through the thick wintery cloud coverage, I was able to successful hit the 1.500 Mile Mark on my Bike on

Saturday, January 3, 2009

at approximately 10:47 AM near South Boulevard in Evanston, IL.

This all-encompassing Record was begun on Memorial Day - Monday, May 29, 2008 when my latest Bike was purchased in Highland Park, IL, ridden home some 13 miles and has been a constant joy of transportation, fun and exercise since then for me.

To instill the New Year Resolution of exercising more, I luckily overslept today on Monday, January 5, 2009 - the first Official Day of Work for most folks. Turning on ABC's Good Morning America, I was on-time to hear their Dr. Oz Segment about how a person should walk 10,000 steps a day. This peaked my Curiosity immensely since an entirely different set of muscles are worked out and I wanted to know more. Little did I know that I was soon to find out that I would LEARN MORE. When I went into the basement to bring THE BIKE OUT, there was a flat tire, my front tire. Despair set in. There wasn't much for me to do until the local bike shop opened and that would not be till 9:30 AM.

I did have a chore to do though before my Day was set into High Gear. I needed to take my film over to Target, located exactly 1 mile SW of 'Home.' With no bike readily available, I would have to walk. And walk I did. However, coming home, I came up with a little game which basically was to count each step to see how far one mile is. I was going to see how Dr. Oz's Theory worked for me.

2,462 steps later I arrived at my back porch. Needless to say - it would be another 100 steps to get in my front door.

The Time Schedule: I left Target at 8:50 AM and arrived home at 9:11 AM. I arrived Home in just 21 Minutes.

My Walking Distance is computed at 3 Miles Per Hour.

And, so far, today, I walked nearly 1/2 the allocated Amount of Steps I need to walk each Day of 10,000. I had gone 4,928 - all before 9:12 AM!

Being 5 Ft. 3 Inches tall with average length Legs, , 10,000 Steps is completed in approximately 4 Miles. My Walking Speed (as a 56 years old fit Female) is 3 MPH. Every 80 Minutes I can walk 10,000 Steps or 4 Miles.

"This is reassuring to know that IF The Bike (My Bike and only real form of transportation) is not available, my Legs are!"

having Alternatives as the New Year opens is reassuring, no matter what your Age and/or Exercise Level is.

Those Numbers can stack up in your Favor. And banning or EXORCISING Exercise from your Daily Regime takes the Exuberance from your Day. Try it. I did with astounding Results.

FAUX FUR FRIDAYS breaks lose...Friday, January 2, 2009

Chicago, IL USA: Everywhere she goes, be it:

grocery stores
bus stops
hair salons
printing shops
the mall
grade schools
local churches or synagogues
billiard halls
bingo parlors
the post office or
even the neighborhood tavern,

'ASK' sees people wearing FAUX FUR and Animal Print Patterns in a variety of colors, from natural grain to wild neon colorations and tones. Like the movie of a similar name, Adrienne does not see 'Dead People' - she sees people alive and vivacious in one of the greatest Patterns ever created: FAUX FUR.

And, surprisingly enough, they all look good. Granted some are FAUX FURring it to excess. Others are only accenting one part of their outfit. Whether they are making a Fashion Faux Pas as in being overdone or under-FAUXed...FAUX FUR, unlike Denim (another popular Fabric) can be dolled up with black or red patent leather accessories. Faux Fur has that special pop element of looking CHIC & expensive at a fraction of the cost of a true Fur.

This Cost, of course, is in saving the Animals' Life and possibly a Breed from Extinction. It's your Conscience at stake here.

This Cost, of course, is in saving thousands of dollars as well as maintenance and summer storage. It's your better Reasoning working here.

"'FAUX FURring it' in this troubled economical climate is the wisest Choice to make on a variety of levels - both physical and spiritual," explained Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith, Founder of FAUX FUR FRIDAYS (R) that begins today on Friday, January 2, 2009 and runs through Christmas Day, 2009 (which also is slated for a Friday). "If you want to merely hang-out; go out for a night on the town; or attend any sort of event, FAUX FUR fits the bill and is the best Textile in which to be seen. It makes a Statement that no other Design has attained."

Adrienne continues: "For those participating in FAUX FUR FRIDAYS, today's assignment is to visit your arealand fabric store and to purchase a few yards of FAUX FUR Fabric. Personally, I will be making a throw blanket for one of my one of my studies. And then, to celebrate the Occasion later in the Day, Dinner with Friends whose single Requirement is that they must wear Faux Fur. Even the men...

Every Friday, weekly Updates on FAUX FUR FRIDAYS will be appearing here with Commentary by ASK: The Faux Fur Femme Fatale.

Any questions or queries regarding FAUX FUR FRIDAYS or to hire ASK to appear at your next Event, merely email her at:
