Huntington Towers & Social Club Coming Events 2013 – 2014
How many folks do you know who say they don’t want to drink anything before going to bed because they’ll have to get up during the night!!**Heart Attack and Water – I never knew all of this !Interesting…….Something else I didn’t know … I asked my Doctor why do people need to urinate so much at night time. Answer from my Cardiac Doctor - Gravity holds water in the lower part of your body when you are upright (legs swell). When you lie down and the lower body (legs and etc) seeks level with the kidneys, it is then that the kidneys remove the water because it is easier.This then ties in with the last statement! I knew you need your minimum water to help flush the toxins out of your body, but this was news to me.Correct time to drink water… Very Important. From A Cardiac Specialist! Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body:2 glasses of water after waking up – helps activate internal organs1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal – helps digestion1 glass of water before taking a bath – helps lower blood pressure1 glass of water before going to bed – avoids stroke or heart attackI can also add to this… My Physician told me that water at bed time will also help prevent night time leg cramps. Your leg muscles are seeking hydration when they cramp and wake you up with a Charlie Horse.“Life is a onetime gift”*

“I know about four or five marriages that took place over the last 15 years among this group,” said Lenore Glickman, adult program coordinator at the Lore & Eric F. Jewish Community Center in Boynton Beach. “And I’ve seen five couples pair off in the last few months. They’re a gregarious group of people who have been through life’s challenges and survived.”
The group, which is for singles age 59 and older, meets from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesdays. It provides a forum to enjoy lively discussions and make new friends. Glickman has been the group’s facilitator for the past year.
On a recent Wednesday night, 18 women and 11 men sat in an arc of chairs facing Glickman.
“The mix varies,” Glickman said. “Sometimes we have 60 percent women and 40 percent men; other evenings we have the reverse. … I pick a topic and call on the audience to discuss it.
“… One night I tried a speed dating format with 10 chairs facing another 10. Before I arrived in the room, the folks expressed their displeasure by pushing the chairs aside back into their normal arc arrangement. When I saw what happened, I cajoled everyone into giving speed dating one try. They reluctantly agreed, and we wound up having a lot of fun.”
Glickman’s questions included, “Do we really care for each other? Are we able to resolve problems between us? Do we take care of each other’s needs? People are naturally takers; are we givers or takers? Are you happy?”
Everyone had their turn to respond, keeping the discussion lively.
One man said he would be happy if he found someone to go out with, while a woman said, “As long as I’m healthy and I can make someone laugh, I’m happy.”
Another question was, “If you could live your life over again, what would you change?” One woman said she “would have dated more,” while another said she would go back 40 years but with the knowledge of life she has now.

Be aware that an old scam is back.
Scammers are again making phone calls posing as representatives of the National Do Not Call Registry. The callers claim to provide an opportunity to register your phone number, but it’s a trick, says the Better Business Bureau.
How the scam works:
Someone calls you claiming to represent the Federal Trade Commission’s National Do Not Call Registry or Canada’s National Do Not Call List. The “representative” says he is offering you the chance to register your phone number in order to limit telemarketing calls. Several versions of this exist. In one, scammers ask for personal information, such as your name, address and Social Security number. In another, scammers try to charge a fee to join the registry.
Either way, just hang up the phone. The call is a scam. The registry is a free service, and sharing personal information with the caller will put you at risk for identity theft.
How to protect yourself from Do Not Call Registry scams:
• You never need to pay. National Do Not Call Registry is a free service of the federal government. • Don’t share your personal information if someone calls you claiming to represent the National Do Not Call Registry. • Private businesses cannot register phone numbers. Consumers may register directly, or through some state governments, but never through private companies. If someone claims otherwise, it’s a scam. • Remember that your participation in the National Do Not Call Registry does not expire. • To add your number to the Do Not Call Registry, go to Donotcall.gov or call 888-382-1222 from the phone you wish to register. If you want to verify your number, use this feature on the registry’s website. • Canadians have their own National Do Not Call List.
Subscription to the Florida Do Not Call list is now being offered free of charge for residential and mobile telephone numbers. Your number will remain on the Florida Do Not Call list for five years.
