    TIDBITS GETS

    NOSEYby Patricia L. Cook

    This issue of Tidbits is not just about nosey neighbors or co-workers (but they will be mentionedshhh! Dont tell them!), but also about noses that are superior in sensing aromas.

    Therehavebeenanumberoftelevisionshowsandmoviesthathavefeaturednoseyneighbors.Whether putting a glass against the wall to listen tovoicesinthenextroomorpeepingthrougha keyhole, there are times when curiosity gets the best of a person and they just want to know whatisgoingon!ExamplesofthesesnoopytrickscanbefoundinvideosofI Love Lucy, Friends, Bewitched.

    One of the main characters of the show,Bewitched, was Gladys Kravitz. She wasconstantly spying on her interesting neighbor, Samantha,whohappenedtobeawitch.Whenthe showwas on television in the 1960s andhad quite a following, many would refer to their nosey neighbors as having the GladysKravitzsyndrome!

    In case you are wondering, nosey can bespelledwith orwithout the e, according tothefreedictionary.com. It is an adjectivemeaning:offensivelycuriousor inquisitive.While people can be nosey in the inquisitiveway, many animals have superior smellingabilities.

    NOSEY (continued):One such beast with an extraordinary

    sense of smell is the bear. A bears brain isonlyaboutathirdofthesizeofahumanbrain but his nose is approximately fivetimes larger; the nasal mucous membrane in a bears head is 100 times larger than the membrane in a human! Their nostrils have folds that house thousands of smellreceptors making their sense of smell better than bloodhounds and possibly the best of any land animal. Bears use their sense ofsmelltofindmates,identifytheircubs,findfood,anddetectandavoiddangeroussituationsinvolvingotherbearsorhumans.
