Wash Your Hands

Fox News reported an incident where a woman was operated on to remove a tumor in her brain but the surgeons found instead a worm.

The operating doctor explained that worms can be injested into the body by eating undercooked pork. It can also be spread by people who have injested a worm and have handled food without first washing their hands.. The telecast can be seen by clicking here on the link below.

The Peggy Jo Studio Newsletter published an article back in 2007 on hand washing which can be seen by clicking here

Was this person Clairvoyant?

We send this newsletter early every Monday morning before people get to their workplaces. Some of our subscribers will set up an auto-response message informing people who send them email,while they are not present, to not expect a response until they return.

We noticed this auto-response recently :

I will be out of the office starting  01/04/2006 and will not return until 01/31/2011.

Did this person see our economic crisis coming?

This Week's Now Famous Person

John Faitel

John is now now famous becausehe is appearing in the "Got Mustard Campaign" He also famous for skippering a yearly cruise in the British Virgin Islands. You can reach John at

So when you see or contact John be sure to tell him you've seen him in the "Got Mustard" campaign. You can see the other hundreds of people by clicking on the underlined words above.

So many people have volunteered to participate that we have found it necessary to change the way the slide show runs so that people can browse rather than wait to see their photo with the "digital mustard" on their upper lip. One can replace the phrase in the section box with their first name and deleting any other text in the box. Then only the slides that contain that name are displayed.

If you had your photo taken and can't find it in the slide show please send us an email. If you would like to send a photo to be included, send it to We will supply the "digital mustard".

Congratulations John

From Our Readers:

Dear Peggy Jo,
Roberto ArandaThank you for the information about  Roberto Aranda in your newsletter. His friends think everyone should be  aware that he has bone cancer. He's responding well to the treatment and he is in good spirits.

We all know Roberto's love for dancing and he never hesitated to invite a lady to be his partner and give her a compliment or chew the fat with the guys.

Therefore, we're inviting everyone to send him an encouraging card or note.

Keep him in your prayers.

Using VHF & VHF/DSC Marine Radio Detroit Regional Yacht-racing Association

WED 2009-01-28
All mariners should know about VHF. Most new marine radio technology incorporates Digital Selective Calling (DSC). VHF radio is the mainstay of coastal communication, required for race committee success, and essential for emergency communications. DCS, the new generation communication system, is rapidly becoming a reality as more Coast Guard Rescue 21 System operations go live. DSC vastly simplifies and improves rescue efforts as well as routine call signaling - making it much easier to make a call while the system frees up Channel 16 for essential communications. This seminar will be taught by the noted Power Squadron educator, John Sommers, of the Toledo Yacht Club. This seminar not only explains basic VHF operation, but provides instruction on use of the new DSC technology. A CD with a DSC Simulator that allows you to practice on your computer at home and a waterproof McGraw-Hill Captain's Quick Guide Using VHF will be available for ordering at a nominal charge. Join us at the Ford Yacht Club (FYC) on Wednesday, January 28 at 7:00pm, to learn about this new technology.
From 7:00 PM to . Price is Free.Location: Ford Yacht Club. 29500 South Pointe Rd, Grosse Isle, MI. 48138 734-676-8422
