It's Harold's 101st Birthday!

Chicago, IL USA:

They say it's your Birthday - your 101st!

One year ago today, the Best Friend our Family had would have turned 100. The following is the Blog I wrote for Harold as he turned 100, one year ago. Today, he would have been 101. That's a big slot of time but then again, it isn't. Harold is part of 'The Ages' but his lively Spirit and Sense of Righteousness are with us every day as he is talked about and thought about every day. That is a legacy that few have. That is a legacy that is earned.

Rest In Peace, Harold.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

NOTE: The numbers on the Actions were not changed.

Birthday Wish to Harold on his 100TH & Other Centenarians:

In the 1950s when I was really young - a youngster, a Friend of The Family stopped in to visit us in our small town of Mendota, IL 61342 (when phone numbers were only 3 digits) who would later become a Father Figure and Hero in the Eyes of Me & my Mother, Betty. That Gentle Man was Mr. Harold Solomon (who lived and worked in Chicago) whose profession was that of a prominent Attorney as well as humanitarian. Mom struck up a terrific Friendship with Mr. Solomon from the mid-70s till his untimely death in March, of 2004. And today,

August 31, 2008

would have been Har's 100TH Birthday. It's neat to look back at such a Historical Period in our Lives -- after all, IF you are amongst the fortunate to have lived such a Span of Time, you've seen and experienced encyclopedia amounts of events, no matter if they are happy, sad or some degree between or beyond those 2. Harold, being a Deep Thinker, analyzed the Daily Events of his Day and always shared those with us. Most of the Time he was 'right' in his thinking and philosophies - although we begged to differ, if only because he was a Man and Women do think at a different level than Males do.

History Books note Harold is one of the First Attorneys to try the Nazi War Tribunal after World War II ended. But, as a most humble Man, we never heard Harold brag about the Strides he made in Human Rights of not only Individuals but in securing World Peace.

Taking care of your mental & physical health is important so that you, too, can celebrate the 100 Year Milestone. We wish Harold had 'made it' to this Date, but in our Hearts, he is with us every Spirit and in the Legacy he left.

From 1908 to 2008, you have seen alot. This was before Airplanes, Fast Cars, White-Out, Moon Travel, TV Talk Shows, High Definition TV and Skyscrapers. Imagine having lived through all those Inventions and experiencing how easy Life has become! The Wonders of living a long productive and fruitful life details how that Person survives in times that are constantly changing.

If you arrive at your 100TH Birthday, Congratulations because:

you have blinked: 513,977,341 Times
you have breathed: 602,007,119 times
you have eaten this many meals: 110,396
your heart has beaten this many times: 3,879,831,600
your heart has pumped this many gallons of blood: 75,777,960
you have slept this many hours: 283,366
you have slept this many days: 11,806

And for those Ambitious, take the 11,806 figure, divide it by 365 (for the days in a year) and you will see that you slept approximately one-third of your life - of your 100 years, but you needed it - because after all, Life is a Thrill a Minute and you've only 'just begun.'

After all, in 'The End,' all We have are Our Memories.

Happy Birthday, Harold on your 100TH!

Love, Ade & Mom

Koopersmith's 35TH Faux Fur Friday...August 28, 2009

Chicago, IL USA:

Not only is this the 35TH FAUX FUR FRIDAY of 2009, but it's the last one for August. The past week (weather-wise) here in the Chicagoland has been cooler and the department stores (true to form and format) are showing their fall and winter line of Clothing. Red Eye (a free supplement of the Chicago Tribune) had a page on ANIMAL MAGNETISM and true to form an assortment of gorgeous FAUX FUR PATTENS were on display.

But I already know all that - after all, FAUX FUR FRIDAY is to enhance the animal in all of us -- magnetically, of course.

Koopersmith scores SKiN: The Alice In Wonderland of The 21ST Century.

Chicago, IL USA:

The Opening Quotation to my recently written Manuscript & Script entitled:

SKiN: How 10 Beloved Plush Toys Redefine Race ©2009


"All Wars have been primarily waged and/or fought for The Advancement or Abolishment of SKiN...not Money, Land (Territory), Riches (Jewels) or the Princess' Hand. It was only then and afterwards that The Onset of Greed arrived - because of SKiN. Redefining (y)our Perception of SKiN is the only Way to get past this Chapter in Human History."

SKiN is the Acronym for:

Sacred Kinship In Nature

that conclusively depicts the non-stop Altruistic + Champion Causes I consistently address in my moving ADRI-torials, Articles, Books and Compositions as delineated by SKiN: How 10 Beloved Plush Toys Redefine Race ©2009 - a timeless and universal Literary Classic on detailing how to better, respect and care for Our World.

Its Plot in 204 choice Words follow:

Ten beloved Plush Toys wind their Way through The Vault, guided by The Keeper as they carefully examine The SKiNS of every Human (Man, Woman and Child) that ever graced and roamed The Planet. Representing 10 Species that lived on Earth for as long as 217,000,000 years (outliving the Almighty Dinosaur), the Conversations strike Chords of many Colors whereby The Charactoys ® (as they are collectively known cleverly derived from the Two Words: CHARACTERS + TOYS thoughtfully explain through their indiscriminating Eyes, Senses, Reasonings and ample Experiences how Man (an Earthling and Resident of merely 100,000 years of age) has created Today's Problems by 'simply being Human.' Twenty-Seven enlightening and provocative hidden Chambers lend themselves to the animated and lively Discussions of and Topics about utilizing the Four Elements of Race, Nature, Mixed Signals and ultimately, What Matters. An Attitude of Salvation, Righteousness and Hope lies on The SKiN Layer of all (their) Discourse(s) until Chapter/Scene 28 squelches and summarizes the oblique and stark Reality of Life in The 21st Century, leaving our Heroes and Protagonists, The Readers, Viewers and all Living Creatures on The Planet Earth (Animalia & Humanity -- Flora & Fauna) in an unanticipated Turn and State of Shock and Awe.


SKiN's Log Line is:

SKiN: How 10 Beloved Plush Toys redefine Race. Connect the Dots.

SKiN's Meet Line is:

SKiN: How 10 Beloved Plush Toys Redefine Race ©2009 meets Aesop's Fables, Alice In Wonderland, Bee Movie, Coreline, Forrest Gump, Gulliver's Travels, The Phantom Tollbooth, The Twilight Zone and The Wizard of Oz.


With Race & Racism being the hottest Topics of our Age combined with Director, Tim Burton's Release of Lewis Carroll's Alice In Wonderland in March, 2010, I strongly feel and sense that the Timing and Significance of SKiN as the next Big Literary Classic and Motion Picture Blockbuster could not be more opportune.

Koopersmith peddles into the Record Books...again.

Chicago, IL USA:

The more you do something, the easier it gets. Or so they say.
Although they have never been properly defined, it' goes without saying that seems to be true. Such was the case when I made another Bikin' Milestone, clearing 2900 miles on my Bike as of today, August 22, 2009 -- while peddling the path I usually take. It was only a few weeks ago that I cleared 2800. Although I would like to see 3000 by Labor Day Weekend with the immense amount of work I have to do on my various Creative Projects, that may not be the case...well, at least, until they can equip a Bike with a Laptop that steers on its own...

For all those drivers who are not on their Bikes, the only thing I can say is:

Faux Fur Fridays winds down to wind up....

Chicago, IL USA: For the new Fall Season which according to calendars begins a month from today. But wait, let's not rush the Summer away so soon as there's still a full month of the Season left. We can still wear animal prints regardless of the heat since they come in so many fabrics that are conducive to sweating and wearing lighter wear.

Marking FAUX FUR FRIDAYS - as today is its 34TH of 52 - is not only a way to dresss up, but a way to learn more about the Animals in which we have gotten these great patterns. And, of course, there will be the usual dinner party for 3F Members at our favorite Green Restaurant.

Historical Aspect - Hurricane Camille - 40TH Year Anniversary

Chicago, IL USA:

Forty years ago -- it was on a Sunday-- that my Family (minus my Brother, Joe) were in New Orleans - a town known for its loveliness that was soon to be shattered by (at that time) the worst Hurricane to hit American Shores. Fearing we were going to die, my Mother made the 'last' phone call to Joey who was safe, sound and warm in Mendota, IL, a small farming community that only a week before had celebrated its annual Sweet Corn Festival. Just 8 days before I had celebrated my 17TH Birthday and had anticipated this vacation in a city I was quite interested in.

Not only that - it was my birthday weekend, as the Fest always occurred around August 9TH -- and I had just made 17 years old, an age way to young in which to die...

As Hurricane Camille approached...

Actually, the day started out very calm - what they call the Calm before the Storm. Wanting to see and experience N'awlins as they called it, we 4 walked from Motel Tamanaka (where Fats Domino often resided) to the French Quarters and had those delicious donuts, beneighs with the powdered sugar and sat and chatted with others.

The town prepared for the storm by taking large pieces of tape and taping the glass windows of each shop so that if and when the glass shattered, it would be in shards and not splinters.

By mid-afternoon we were back in our 2nd Story Motel Room, a hand-rail was outside our doorway. We were hungry. Mom walked to the restaurant below, only to find the workers were packing up to go home, but they fixed us chicken sandwiches which she bought back to the room.

Gripping the handrail, Dad was swooped up by winds and 'fell' back into the room, our motel room that was open as we 'waited' for and waited out the storm.

Although the winds were to be 200 MPH, the roughest hurricane to hit New Orleans, the speeds were clocked at 80 MPH and the scare factor alone was something we will always remember.

The next day we left New Orleans, never to return as a family again. The line of cars leaving the City was miles long -- as everyone bided their time -- anxious to get back to higher ground.

450 miles later were in Little Rock, Arkansas where we spent the night. Since that point, I have always felt particularly thankful for having made it through this Event and have felt I am living on borrowed time -- precious time that so far -- has just marked its 40th Year since.

As I thought of this date, it made me feel again sad to know that this marks the 40th Anniversary of those who had lost loved ones in that horrific storm. Just previously in April, the Mendota Township High School Band had visited the Biloxi/Gulfport area, performing for its citizens. From reports, many of those people had lost their lives; finding bodies in the trees of those who were not lucky enought (as my family & I were) to have ridden out the storm of a lifetime -- if not more...

This lead me to do more research and I found that: Out of curiosity around 5 PM today, I googled Hurricane Camille to see what had been put up online about 'her' as in 1969 there was no Internet Access.


an interesting article appeared that in part said:

Hurricane Camille is a bench mark in the American hurricane experience. Although Camille hit an area that had a relatively small population by today's standards - it still provided a horrific firsthand lesson of what a hurricane of maximum intensity can do to the man-made environment. Hurricane Andrew (1992) destroyed more property, and Hurricane Katrina resulted in many more fatalities - but Hurricane Camille remains the strongest storm to ever enter the United States mainland on record.

Classmates of my School (located 100 miles southwest of Chicago) who had visited the area then boxed up goods that were sent to the area after the storm, when school finally got started. To this day, I always light a candle on August 17TH. And as an Eventologist have made:

August 17TH of each year a HOLIDATE known as Weather Watch Day (C)1994.
Weather is interesting -- yet it's best not to rile up Mother Nature as her rath can be quite tumultuous and an experience that will never quite be forgotten.

In 1995, Angus Lind of the Time Picayune called me to do an article on another one of my HOLIDATES at which time I told him I had visited his city in the late 60s as a Teenager, but it was not for the Mardi Gras or a Family Vacation I had initially planned. He took my lead and comemnts and noted that in the article he printed...a tactic that many reporters do, making a link-up with the subject and their town. After all, sometimes those 6 Degrees of Separation cannot be separated by a few miles.

Koopersmith records another Biking Record. How an Active Senior(ita) stays active.

Chicago, IL USA:

As of Wednesday, August 12, 2009 during the 8 AM hour near the Intersection of South & Chicago Avenues in Evanston, IL I clocked in 2800 miles on my bike. It wasn't too long ago that I made the 2700 mark. With summer in the air and many of the potholes in Chicago (as we are known for Winter & Construction, our 2 prevailing Seasons) being filled (with what no on knows), travel by bike is at a premium. Not only does it save money, helps on the cardio-vascular and improves the Greenery (ie: controls excess gas and petro usage), but it's fun to PLAY THESE NUMBER GAMES. It acts as an incentive for not only myself, but others like me - who at 57+ do care for themselves in making wise decisions to:

BIKE instead of drive!

Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith Turns 57 on August 9, 2009!

Chicago, IL USA: It's safe to say that in 2 days, I'll be 57 years old according to the Calendar. I definitely do not feel it; nor look it. As the Founder of:

AFSEE: Advocates For Senior Equailty & Enrichment (C)2002

in 2004, an article was written about me and my healthy techniques for longevity in a Senior(ita's) Magazine from Las Vegas. I was extremely proud of this piece as it was entitled:

54 is the New 34...

Knocking 20 years off was a nice gesture on Margaret's Part, considering I didn't even have to buy any advertising from her. But as we all know, AGING is only a number; Maturity (on the other hand) is something many of us do not develop. Just look around as there are many who haven't reached that Peak yet in Life's Story.

56 was a very good year. In October I became one of the Top 10 Selectees for the Chicago Portion of

SHE's GOT THE LOOK - that aired in June/July (of this year). It was a real ego boost considering they were looking for MODELS who were over 35; and at 56, I was one of the more 'mature' (can we say) of the Stock who were waiting in those Cattle Lines.

Later, in November, I created FAUX FUR FRIDAYS (C)2008 that I launched in January of 2009 for the entire year that, of course, happens on Fridays. It's not only a time to wear Animal Prints - NOT Animal Hides -- but to appreciate what Design has contributed to our state of living and to care for the Planet and the other Animals we share it with.

Which brings me to my Biggest and Loftiest CHALLENGE of my 56th Year:

The Writing and Composition of:

SKiN: How 10 Beloved Plush Toys Redefine RACE (C)2009

that is now fully copyrighted and on its way to 'making the rounds.' Not only would it make for a glorious BOOK that helps to dispel RACISM (that is the hottest topic of any Decade), but it will also be transformed into a Movie and shopped around to Hollywood Producers. The Message it relays is mandatory to get by in Today's World. I would not be surprised if it become as Great as The Wizard of Oz, The Phantom Tollbooth and Forrest Gump as I am touting it as:

The Alice In Wonderland of the 21ST Century.

As we all know, Tim Burton is producing ALICE IN WONDERLAND starring Johnny Depp -- with a release date of March 10, 2010. This may be the follow-up to his Artistry.

Yes, this year has been a Creative and Healthy Adventure; filled with Joys, lots of Toil, but the Product is one that affects us all...and I still have 2 more Days in which to take advantage of all that 56 has to hold for me!

Keeping an Optimistic Outlook is important in troubled times and when things get perplex or complicated. After all, we should all take IT one moment at a time (if we must slow down that much). Then, you too can have HAPPY DAYS like mine.

Lowell Thompson has something to say...Chicago's Very Own MCA: Most Creative Artist

Chicago, IL USA:

One of the Greatest Artists of all Times, lives right here in Chicago and I am proud to call him 'Friend.' Being as controversial, clever and creative as he is, LOWELL THOMPSON posted an interesting Paragraph on his latest BLOG called:

that I just had to comment on. Then feeling my answers were just as 'radical' as his, I posted it here -- to get more BANG for one's buck. This is that Comment(ary). Do visit

as it's an IDEA that will change the course and discourse of Modern Literature.

My eNote Response to Lowell follows:

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *


Lowell-say: This is my first attempt at fiction on this site.

ASK-say: That’s not evident, at all.

Lowell-say: In fact, it's not really fiction.

ASK-say: You don’t say. You mean there is something else out there floating around. Could it possibly be THE TRUTH, disguised as Commercialness.

Lowell-say: It's a new category I just made up...

ASK-say: Lowell, my Man, if you are going to WRITE on The Internet – then sound professional. How would U do that? Well, I will tell you. It’s quite simple. #1: Take the Word: MADE UP and substitute: CREATE. It’s much more impressive, classy and extends a better Image than those who MAKE things up, although they are creative in their own manner. Sometimes, SOUNDS in writing does make the difference between acceptance and believe. I know you want to 'garner' both, as well as a paycheck, satisfying as that is.

Lowell continues: ...called Finction or Fuinction. (Don't ask me how to pronounce it).

ASK-say: The pronunciation is also simple. Try:

Feek-shun and FOO-in-shun.

That’s easy enough but those Acronyms don’t have a special or certain RING to them like most of your other Work and Paintings do. Lose it. But if you insist, which you probably will: Finction or Fuinction (because those words stand for:

Functional Fiction

you could use the hyphenated Word:

FUNC-FIC? It’s still as vague, but much easier to say and sounds funky enough in a literarily fictional, not FRICTIONAL way.


Lowell-say: Or you can call it Functional Fiction, which I define as fiction designed to serve a purpose in the real world.

ASK-say: Aye, Aye! Serving a Purpose is something more people, places and things should do - if they and we only had The Time & Space.

Lowell-say: I know, I know, real writers aren't supposed to care about that.

ASK-say: Take it from me, Lowell – We Writers as myself – mercenaries of the WORLD of WORDS and beyond – do stay up night thinking about that very topic! Tossing and Turning. Turning & Tossing till a New Dawn dawns brightly, then it begins all over again & again & a-g-a-i-n.

LT-say: But since I'm a writer without portfolio,

ASK-say: Come on now. You've penned at least 3 blogs an you are a:

Writer with Portfolio?

I beg your Pardon! But heck, your Artistic Portfolio could blow Matisse & Rembrandt out of the Water…and every other Artist before or after them and those. Timeless Art is what I call your Pieces. MasterPieces, at that! Plus you see it all with only ONE Workable Eye. Aye! Aye to that, too – not to hurt your Feelings. You see more than most People see with 2 workable corneas do…That’s Talent with a CapiTal T, as in Thompson. Hey, didn't they name that building just north of City Hall after you? I thought there was a resemblance!

Lowell-says: I can do whatever I damn want. Right?

ASK-says: Lowell, there might be children 'out there' surfing the Internet who want to become an Artist/Writer/Advertising Pro like you – a Func-Fictionist-@-large in a functional way, means and manner so you really should not DAMN anything on The Internet – it’s a Netiquette Type Thang to do or not to do. Bill Shakespeare wouldn't.

LT-says in closing: Want to find out more, email me at, OK?

ASK-say: You have time to correspond with The Masses when most of the Art in the Museums & at the Galleries of the world could use some of

The Thompson Touch?

Better start cranking out The Art, Lowell – leave the WORDS to the Critics who will be examining pieces as YOUR OBAMA Portrait which should be hanging in President Obama’s Office…WRITE now, as a matter of fact…and all those other fine pieces you have created as well as those Gems also known as: Advertorial Art Forms you place on:

Hey, if you can DO both – the more Power to you…it’s nice to see somebody succeed – and be as concerned about The Arts as you do!

As you know (in Final clo-ZING), G-d loves the Little Children that love themselves. Or so it goes, on and on and on. As usual, I enjoyed reading and perusing your latest Blog Pages – BUY THE COVER. It certain contains so much Creativity, it should be voted BLOG of the Year, next to mine, of course!

Be well – Creativity is all around us – how it’s interpreted is what it is all about…

Koopersmith on The Art of Writing Well.

Chicago, IL USA.

Not playing by The Rules is the rich man, poor man and revolutionary's state. If you have enough; you don't need rules. If you're poor enough and under the wire, the rules don't apply to you and if you take issues at face value, breaking the rules is expected. For all others, life is pretty boring in a traditional way. Writing leads to breaking rules - no matter what month it is; what day of the month it is, or if a person is rich, poor or counter-culture. Word-Play has that capability, which is one of the 3-4 major reasons why people write.

Why WRITING is done well (if at all) will be discussed at a later date.
