Thrills & Chills..... of Aging

And the Survey says????

Many of our members indicated an interest on a recent Care Committee survey for an opportunity to explore the joys and tribulations of aging.  A
Member-to-Member forum is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov.20 @ 12:30 at the clubhouse. 

Please come to explore questions such as:  The best part of being this age………...hate it when……………. The funniest thing happened to me…………. I am most concerned about……(And many more!)

It’s OK to come a bit grouchy.  We will all leave laughing!  Remember, reaching this stage of maturity is a privilege denied to many!

Living Healthy
Important Information on Staying Healthy and Enjoying Life

Senior Transportation

Let’s start with the bad news…. Eventually we ALL will reach a point where we cannot drive ourselves where we need to go, when we need to be there. 

he good news is that if there was ever a time in history to be facing personal driving limitations, this is it!  There are now many safe, convenient and economical alternatives to owning and driving your own car. Particularly in the area we live!  CLICK HERE to view a summary of how Villagers can get where they need to be when they can’t drive and help from friends and family is not available.

WARNING: Be wary of accepting any "surprise gift or package," which you neither expected nor personally ordered, especially if it involves any kind of payment as a condition of receiving the gift or package. Also, never accept anything If you do not personally know or there is no proper identification of who the sender is.


Above all, the only time you should give out any personal credit/debit card information is when you yourself initiated the purchase or transaction!


PLEASE   Pass this on, it may just prevent someone else from being swindled

    Driver Safety

    When it comes to driving, there is no set age at which a person becomes less safe when s/he is behind the wheel. Safety depends on a person's physical and mental health which, of course, differs from person to person.
    The following issues can be warning signs that suggest it's time to get tested for driving safety:

          Getting lost in familiar areas
          Ignoring traffic signs or signals
          Becoming easily agitated or angered when driving
          Inability to concentrate while driving or appearing  

          Reacting too slowly to dangerous situations
              basic driving basics like yielding right-of-way,  
              using mirrors, and turn signals or failing to check
             for blind spots  
          Having trouble judging distances

If you have any of these behaviors, see your healthcare provider for a checkup for some medication can make a person drowsy and less alert and have a professional evaluate your driving skills. It may be time to start a conversation about driving and safety.

Holiday Eating with Confidence

The holiday season is full of festivities, family celebrations and tasty treats! For many, this time of year means two months of fretting about indulging on unhealthy foods and the effect on their body. Learn how to adjust your mindset to worry less and walk away with strategies to enjoy traditional meals mindfully as well as create new health-giving delicious recipes to satisfy your taste buds.

Why Italian Fathers and Grandfathers pass their handguns down through the family.
    An old Italian man is dying. He calls his grandson to his bedside, Guido, I wan' you lissina me. I wan' you to take-a my chrome plated .38 revolver so you will always remember me."
    "But grandpa, I really don't like guns. How about you leave me your Rolex watch instead?"
    "You lissina me, boy. Somma day you gonna be runna da business, you gonna have a beautiful wife, lotsa money, a big-a home and maybe a couple of bambinos."
    "Somma day you gonna come-a home and maybe finda you wife inna bed with another man.  Whatta you gonna do then? Pointa to you watch and say, 'times up'?"

Two sociologists are sitting by the pool. One turns to the other and asks, “Have you read Marx?” to which he replies, “Yes, it’s these damn wicker chairs.”

“Did you hear about the fire at the circus?
The heat was in tents.”

“What do you call a row of rabbits jumping backward?
A receding hare line.”

“What did the cannibal get when he turned up late to dinner?
The cold shoulder.”

How many divorced men does it take to change a light bulb?
Who cares? They never get the house anyway”

Can’t quite remember one of our shamelessly
plagiarized jokes?  It’s probably in the archive
