Care Committee Updates

Living Healthy

Share your Experience!
Each month this website and the Vibes provide information gathered by the Care Committee to help members deal with health-related issues.  There are two sources of information on this subject: external and internal.  External sources include reputable articles on a subject related to healthcare, and internal sources are experiences that members have lived through dealing with healthcare issues.  So, I am asking each member of TVSD that if they have experiences that could be useful for dissemination to other villagers in our community, please write them up and send them to me:  Marc Narkus-Krame

It’s All About Food

The Care Committee is pleased to share the collective wisdom gained at a Member-to-Member forum in April. The topic of the conversation centered on ways to reduce our time in the kitchen preparing meals by finding resources within our community and online to make the food preparation process simpler, especially when only cooking for one or two people. They are listed below. 

Delivery options Codes: D= Delivers UE=Uber Eats GH=Grub Hub, Doordash (DD) Amazon Prime (order from select restaurants).

Favorite places in Tierrasanta:Dominos (D), Choice of Mandarin (D), Island Style Café (DD), Lilac Thai (UE), Round Table Pizza (D), Chile Peppers (GH), Tierrasanta Mexican Café (GH), Edamame (GH).

Others in Close Proximity: Bud’s Louisiana Café; Troy’s Greek (D) Khan’s Cave, Fillipis, Restaurant at Kaiser Hospital, Chicken Pie Shop On El Cajon Blvd: buy already frozen pies for later use. 

Kits Delivered: Hello Fresh (delivers meals ready to cook) Blue Apron (sends ingredients, you assemble and cook) Sun Basket (Ditto) Meals on Wheels.

Grocery Deliveries: Von’s (Also may pre-order for pick up). Try thin crust pizza in frozen section. 

Trader Joe’s: Great frozen and fresh entrees with good portion size (try Greek chicken and fish) 

Suggestions from Big Box Stores: Costco: Divide and freeze rotisserie chicken, organic ground beef. Costco butchers will package smaller amounts than those in the refrigerated compartments, upon request.  You don’t have to buy in bulk.

Other Suggestions: Use crock pot recipes , add chicken and veggies to prepared Indian sauces, buy spices in bulk. Note: Sprouts sells spices in bulk.  You may buy small amounts of spices that you use infrequently, and put them in your own jars.

Chronic Pain Workshop

TVSD has received a request to collaborate with AIS to host a series of six workshops for Chronic Pain starting on September 10, 2019.

We want to know if our membership is interested in participating in this free program. The workshops are held for 21/2 hours, once a week for six consecutive weeks. The building curriculum covers how to manage chronic pain, exercises, use of medications, communication and nutrition. The workshop curriculum is evidence-based and was originally developed at Stanford University. At least 10 participants are needed to start the workshop so let Missy know if you are interested so we can make this series of workshops happen.

The Pope met with his Cardinals to discuss a proposal from Benjamin Netanyahu, the leader of Israel .

"Your Holiness", said one of his Cardinals, “Mr. Netanyahu wants to challenge you to a game of golf to show the friendship and ecumenical spirit shared by the Jewish and Catholic faiths.”

The Pope thought this was a good idea, but he had never held a golf club in his hand.

“Don’t we have a Cardinal to represent me?", he asked.

"None that plays very well," a Cardinal replied. "But, there’s a man named Jack Nicklaus, an American golfer who is a devout Catholic. We can offer to make him a Cardinal. Then ask him to play Mr Netanyahu as your personal representative. In addition to showing our spirit of cooperation, we’ll also win the match.”

Everyone agreed it was a good idea.

The call was made. Of course, Nicklaus was honored and agreed to play.

The day after the match, Nicklaus reported to the Vatican to inform the Pope of the result. “I have some good news and some bad news, your Holiness,"said Nicklaus.

“Tell me the good news first, Cardinal Nicklaus," said the Pope.

“Well, your Holiness, I don’t like to brag, but even though I’ve played some pretty terrific rounds of golf in my life, this was the best I have ever played, by far. I must have been inspired from above. My drives were long and true, my irons were accurate and purposeful, and my putting was perfect. With all due respect, my play was truly miraculous.”

“There’s bad news?" asked the Pope.

“Yes, I lost by three strokes to Rabbi Tiger Woods.

The Village Funnies archives have expired due to lack of interest. 

There is the story of a pastor who got up one Sunday and announced to his congregation: "I have good news and bad news. The good news is, we have enough money to pay for our new building program. The bad news is, it's still out there in your pockets."

“A man walks into a bar after a long day at work and orders a drink. As he sits there, mulling over his day, he hears a high-pitched voice say, “That shirt looks great on you!”

The man looks around, doesn’t see anything, and returns to his drink thinking nothing more of it. But then, a moment later, the voice returns, this time offering, “You seem like a really cool guy!” Again, the man looks around, sees nothing, and returns to his drink, wondering if he should get checked out by a professional. Then he hears, “I bet your parents are really proud of you!” He slams down his drink and looks around wildly. Frustrated and finding no possible source of the voice, he calls over the bartender. He says, “Hey barkeep! What’s that voice I keep hearing?”

“Oh, those are the peanuts,” the bartender replies. “They’re complimentary.”
