GET A BUDDY WHATEVER YOUR AGE!

After hearing several stories of people living alone - including the one published here last week - where they were found after tragically lying on the floor for several days, I thought a new campaign was in order: GET A BUDDY!

I was trying to think of something creative to inspire you folks out there to "Get a Buddy" and Iím still open for suggestions. In talking to friends during the week about the subject, responses I got included "Weíre too young to worry about that.", "Who wants to have to call someone every day?", and "Oh, Iíll be fine and canít be bothered."

But, in todayís world, with many people living alone and without a regular schedule, it is really important to connect with someone each day. This would insure that if something happened to YOU - YOU wouldn't be left on the floor for days.

Of course, you should also have a procedure planned for when your Buddy doesn't answer the phone.

Wear red on Fridays

from an email:
Last week, while traveling to Chicago on business, I noticed a Marine sergeant traveling with a folded flag, but did not put two and two together. After we boarded our flight, I turned to the sergeant, who'd been invited to sit in First Class (across from me), and inquired if he was heading home.

No, he responded.
Heading out I asked?
No. I'm escorting a soldier home.
Going to pick him up?
No. He is with me right now. He was killed in Iraq. I'm taking him home to his family.
The realization of what he had been asked to do hit me like a punch to the gut. It was an honor for him. He told me that, although he didn't know the soldier, he had delivered the news of his passing to the soldier's family and felt as if he knew them after many conversations in so few days. I turned back to him, extended my hand, and said, Thank you. Thank you for doing what you do so my family and I can do what we do.

Upon landing in Chicago the pilot stopped short of the gate and made the following announcement over the intercom.

"Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to note that we have had the honor of having Sergeant Steeley of the United States Marine Corps join us on this flight. He is escorting a fallen comrade back home to his family. I ask that you please remain in your seats when we open the forward door to allow Sergeant Steeley to deplane and receive his fellow soldier. We will then turn off the seat belt sign."

Without a sound, all went as requested. I noticed the sergeant saluting the casket as it was brought off the plane, and his action made me realize that I am proud to be an American.

So here's a public Thank You to our military Men and Women for what you do so we can live the way we do.
signed: Stuart Margel -- Washington , D.C.

Very soon, you will see a great many people wearing Red every Friday. The reason? ?Americans who support our troops used to be called the "silent majority." We are no longer silent, and are voicing our love for God, country and home in record breaking numbers. We are not organized, boisterous or overbearing.

Many Americans, like you, me and all our friends, simply want to recognize that the vast majority of America supports our troops. Our idea of showing solidarity and support for our troops with dignity and respect starts this Friday -- and continues each and every Friday until the troops all come home, sending a deafening message that every red-blooded American who supports our men and women afar, will wear something red.

By word of mouth, press, TV -- let's make the United States on every Friday a sea of red much like a homecoming football game in the bleachers. If every one of us who loves this country will share this with acquaintances, coworkers, friends, and family, it will not be long before the USA is covered in RED and it will let our troops know the once "silent" majority is on their side more than ever, certainly more than the media lets on.

The first thing a soldier says when asked "What can we do to make things better for you?" is .."We need your support and your prayers." Let's get the word out and lead with class and dignity, by example, and wear something red every Friday.

Some people will be wearing red for no reason at all which is all right. If we wear red and know why we are doing it, then our intentions will be a form of prayer.

Snopes

The above wear red campaign was analyzed by snopes and the concluded that it does no harm but it might not be as effective as a campaign to wear some kind of badge.

Two emails making the rounds and being forwarded by well meaning people are the Cell Phone warning and the Osama Bin Laden hanging emails.

The Cell phone warning raises it head about every six months and is false. The FTC is not going to print a directory and there is no need to register your cell phone with the do not call registry. There in no harm if you have or if you do. It is just unnecessary.

The Osama Bin Laden is partially true but is out of date. At one time there was a Trojan horse in the attachment but most security systems will prevent it from doing any harm.

Thank you friends and neighbors

Thanks to all the people who are leaving their lights on. Thank you City of Royal Oak and Thank you City of Birmingham. The lights are appreciated.

Wasn't like a "Snow Globe" (Those crystal balls that you shake to make it snow) on Sunday night with the falling snow and the twinkly lights.

Next year we will start the campaign right after Thanksgiving. Many people already removed their lights before we got started.

  • Reverse Mortgages
  • Advertisement

    Do you Know What A Reverse Mortgage Is?

    by Teresa Fisher
    Reverse Mortgages allow older homeowners to take a loan out against the equity they have built in their home. The loan provides tax-free cash and requires NO monthly mortgage payments during the course of the loan. The loan is repaid only when the borrower no longer occupies the home or a maturity event occurs (moving out or passing away).

    Reverse Mortgage Facts:
    1. Must be 62 years old.
    2. Homeowner ALWAYS remains on title.
    3. Homeowner NEVER makes any payments (excluding taxes and insurance)
    4. Homeowner can NEVER be removed from home.
    Reverse Mortgage can provide money for any or all of the following:
    1. Long-term care/ medical expenses.
    2. Daily living expenses/ Pay off debts.
    3. Insurance Products
    4. Home repairs
    5. Travel
    FHA (HECM) offers one type of reverse mortgage that is insured by US government and id completely regulated. The amount of money available is based on age, value of home, and what money is owed

    Homeowner can receive money as a monthly income, lump sum payment, line of credit, or any combination of these options. Additional information can be found on the following web sites: AARP(www.aarp.org), Fannie Mae (www.fanniemae.com), HUD (www.hud.gov). A local Reverse Mortgage Specialist, Teresa Fisher, can be contacted at 248-601-0625 office, 800-707-5874 ext 1433 or email at msteresafisher@yahoo.com to answer questions or discuss your needs.

    I hope this has shed some light on the benefits of a Reverse Mortgage. Senior homeowners are recognizing the significance of the equity in their homes as a way to fund their retirement years and enjoy more financial freedom!
