Written by Elaine Lewis

Elaine’s got another video for us to watch! Try and guess what Tommy and Chuckie’s remedy is.

Shana, we’re running late again, and there’s so much news to report!

Like what?

Like everything that’s happened in the past month! For one thing–it was your birthday on April 22nd, remember? Here you are opening your present. It seems someone bought you a Rolling Stones CD:

It was my pen pal from England.

And, do you remember what I got you?

You took me to see Smokey Robinson at Caesar’s Palace!

Yes!!! He’s a living legend, you know! The co-founder of Motown Records! Here we are sitting in the audience:

And here’s Smokey!

It’s not a very good picture….

Well, hey, I used my cell phone, we’re lucky to have anything at all! Find a real picture of him.


I think this calls for a song! Here’s Smokey singing “Ooh Baby Baby” from 1965:

And when they get back, tell everyone how we nearly didn’t make it!

Oh, that’s right! You were sick, of all days for you to come down with a virus! You were lying in bed, you only had two bites to eat all day, you were feverish and you had a headache! I tried Gelsemium but it didn’t work. By now it was already past time for us to leave and it was looking really grim, so at literally the last minute I gave you Nux vomica, and Voila! you pulled through!  I guess that means you got The Homeopathic Miracle for your birthday too! 

Did anything else happen this past month?

On a sad note, Dick Clark died.

Mom, I’m guessing that none of our readers from India and Pakistan know who Dick Clark is!

Are you sure??? Well, Shana, back in the ’50’s and ’60’s, there was something on TV known as “American Bandstand”, Dick Clark was the host. It was a teenage dance show. Dick Clark, essentially, brought Rock ‘n’ Roll, a relatively new form of music at the time, that our parents hated, to the whole country every day, between 3 and 5 in the afternoon. It was the biggest thing on the air, a monster! Here’s Dick Clark standing in front of his famous “top-10” list, and what song is number-5?

Daddy’s song?

That’s right, Shana! As a matter of fact, I was on Bandstand three times!

I know, you mention it constantly.

It was produced right here in Philadelphia! Shana, get me a picture of Bandstand.


Shana, find me Chris Matthews’ remembrance of Dick Clark.


It’s very moving. He really captures the way I feel about it. Well, I suppose we have to move on.

What’s the quiz this month?

Shana, I was getting bored; so, I decided it’s time to do another completely different quiz!

You don’t have any patients, do you.

For your information, Miss Pooh, I most certainly do have patients! But they’re boring!


So this time, we are going to watch a cartoon. It’s The Rug Rats and it’s called “The Odd Couple”.

Mom, do our readers from India and Pakistan know who the Rug Rats are?

Of course they do, Shana! Here they are now:


That’s Chuckie on the left, and Tommy on the right. Chuckie is very scared most of the time while Tommy is very adventurous, optimistic and resourceful. In this cartoon, Tommy spends the weekend at Chuckie’s house and their personalities clash! Chuckie is very neat, particular and anxiety-ridden; he keeps his room neat and wants his toys played with “properly”, the way the manufacturer intended. Tommy is independent, free-spirited and invents new ways to play with toys and then he just leaves them there and takes out something else – a new game or puzzle, etc. and this makes Chuckie really mad! Chuckie informs Tommy that he can’t go off and start playing with something new without first putting away the toys he just finished playing with! Tommy finds this utterly incomprehensible! “Our parents will pick them up,” Tommy says. Chuckie counters with, “A clean room is a happy room.” Try and guess their constitutional remedies and let us know what you think  by writing to:

  • Hi Elaine!

    I can’t quite figure out how to set up my email properly on this new, inherited, recycled computer I’ve received (okay I got it a month ago, what’s your point?) so I’m going to write in your comment section, I figure you’ll see it there just as easily.

    If I were to just hazard a guess about these two boys, I’d have to say that the sweet little diaper wearer is a Calc. Carb or an Arsenicum, and the redhead is a Phosophorus patient. But you could also make a case for Sulphur… It’s never as easy as a guess, is it?

  • Hi Elaine ! how are you? my email account has been hacked since two month. I wanted to participate in this quiz but could not do due to the problem. I intended to overcome it but on 25th May I have become “mama” of a baby girl. 🙂 My little angel “Hamna” is so cute MA SHA ALLAH. Oh! she is weeping, ok bye. Can I guess the characters yet? In the comment box as time for participation is over now?

  • You had a baby? Is it another cat? What will you name this one? Oh, I see, you’ve named her Hamna. Well, that’s a nice name! Yes, please, try and guess the quiz!
