When you eat at Boodles make sure you save room for dessert. Bruno or one of the other wait-staff will flame it at your table. Very New York Style.

What a shame what folly,to give advice before listening to the facts.

I took down some of my twinkle lights on Sunday and I was thinking how neat it was for Birmingham and Royal Oak to keep their lights up during those long winter nights.Way to go !!!

First Line of Defense

I was out on a date at a fancy restaurant over the weekend when I went to the Ladies room to freshen up a bit. As I entered, I was startled to see this handsome man in there washing his hands. We both stopped in our tracks, then checked out the fixtures in the room, but that didn't answer the question, so we ran to the door to read the sign. By this time I thought it might have been me who made the mistake and my heart was pounding while my face was turning every shade of red. When we discovered that it was, indeed, the Ladies Room, he said, "I thought something was odd when I didn’t see the porcelain wells lined up against the wall." We both laughed and I said, "Well, at least you were washing your hands!"

He wanted to shake my hand, but I hadn't washed yet!!
This leads me to my latest crusade
Hand washing is the first defense against spreading germs.I go crazy when I’m in a restroom and see a woman start to walk out without washing up. In fact, because I feel that adults should already know the importance of it, I’ll say something to her before she gets away. According to the Nemours Foundation, good hand washing is the first line of defense against spreading many illnesses. The common cold, meningitis, bronchiolitis, the flu, hepatitis A, and infectious diarrhea, can be stopped by simply washing your hands.

How long should we wash our hands?
Long enough to sing "Happy Birthday" twice!

Chaotic Week

It seems every thing happens at once. On Tuesday the Entrepenuers and Investors Exhange met at the Fox and Hounds . Fritz Spademan is pictured With Peggy Jo on the right. The photo is coutesy of Neil Jackson, Hudson Mills Communications & Press for the E&I Exhange . Peggy Jo and Friz The Success Church and Somerset ( also met that same night. And then on Thursday there were four popular events. Sailing Singles at Ginopolis (photo on the right below), Somerset and Kirk at Dugans (photo on the left below), the American Singles Golf Association, the Skiwi Ski Club and PWP of Rochester all had events.

PJSN readers, let me know how theywork.

Bed Sheets
After drying sheets, put both sheets and one pillowcase in the other pillow case. Fold neatly in a square. Next time you change sheets, you just take the one pillow case and all the sheets and pillow case are inside. No need to look for matches.
Clean your glass shower
To clean the glass in your shower easily, apply lemon juice to the glass with a sponge. Then, take newspaper and wipe the lemon juice off the glass. It will be clean and sparkle with no scrubbing!
Reheat Pizza
Heat up leftover pizza in a non-stick skillet on top of the stove, set heat to med-low and heat till warm. This keeps the crust crispy. No soggy micro pizza. I saw this on the cooking channel and it really works.
Easy Deviled Eggs
Put cooked egg yolks in a zip lock bag. Seal, mash till they are all broken up. Add remainder of ingredients, reseal, keep mashing it up mixing thoroughly, cut the tip of the baggy, squeeze mixture into egg. Just throw bag away when done easy clean up.
Expanding Frosting
When you buy a container of cake frosting from the store, whip it with your mixer for a few minutes. You can double it in size. You get to frost more cake/cupcakes with the same amount. You also eat less sugar/calories per serving.
Reheating refrigerated bread
To warm biscuits, pancakes, or muffins that were refrigerated, place them in a microwave with a cup of water. The increased moisture will keep the food moist and help it reheat faster.
Newspaper Weeds-Away
Start putting in your plants, work the nutrients in your soil. Wet newspapers, put layers around the plants overlapping as you go, cover with mulch and forget about weeds. Weeds will get through some gardening plastic, they will not get through wet newspapers.

Letters from our readers

Dear Peggy Jo,
Just curious. How many organizations does your newsletter cover?

Answer : it depends upon the week but overall we have information from 55 organizations.
Dear Peggy Jo,
How can these clubs coordinate their events so that everything does not happen on the same day or week? Don't they talk to each other?

Answer: We are sending the club officers a calendar so that they can see what is coming up.
Dear Peggy Jo,
I enjoy reading your weekly updates and your "articles" on the right side.. very thought provoking..
