Good Health for Men

Eat Healthy

"An apple a day keeps the doctor away." There's more truth to this saying than we once thought. What you eat and drink and what you don't eat and drink can definitely make a difference to your health. Eating five or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day and less saturated fat can help improve your health and may reduce the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases. Have a balanced diet, and watch how much you eat.

Maintain a Healthy Weight

Obesity is at an all time high in the United States, and the epidemic may be getting worse. Those who are overweight or obese have increased risks for diseases and conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke. Eat better, get regular exercise, and see your health care provider about any health concerns to make sure you are on the right track to staying healthy.

Get Moving

More than 50 percent of American men and women do not get enough physical activity to provide health benefits. For adults, thirty minutes of moderate physical activity on most, preferably all, days of the week is recommended. It doesn't take a lot of time or money, but it does take commitment. Start slowly, work up to a satisfactory level, and don't overdo it. You can develop one routine, or you can do something different every day. Find fun ways to stay in shape and feel good, such as dancing, gardening, cutting the grass, swimming, walking, or jogging.

Be Smoke-Free

Health concerns associated with smoking include cancer and lung disease. Smoking triples the risk of dying from heart disease among those who are middle-aged. Second-hand smoke - smoke that you inhale when others smoke - also affects your health. If you smoke, quit today! Helplines, counseling, medications, and other forms of support are available to help you quit.

Be Smoke Free

Sometimes they're once a year. Other times they're more or less often. Based on your age, health history, lifestyle, and other important issues, you and your health care provider can determine how often you need to be examined and screened for certain diseases and conditions. These include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, sexually transmitted diseases, and cancers of the skin, prostate, and colon. When problems are found early, your chances for treatment and cure are better. Routine exams and screenings can help save lives.

Manage Stress

Perhaps now more than ever before, job stress poses a threat to the health of workers and, in turn, to the health of organizations. Balancing obligations to your employer and your family can be challenging. What's your stress level today? Protect your mental and physical health by engaging in activities that help you manage your stress at work and at home.

Know Yourself and Your Risks

Your parents and ancestors help determine some of who you are. Your habits, work and home environments, and lifestyle also help to define your health and your risks. You may be at an increased risk for certain diseases or conditions because of what you do, where you work, and how you play. Being healthy means doing some homework, knowing yourself, and knowing what's best for you... because you are one of a kind.

Protect Yourself

What comes to mind when you think about safety and protecting yourself? Is it fastening seat belts, applying sunscreen, wearing helmets, or having smoke detectors? It's all of these and more. It's everything from washing your hands to watching your relationships. Did you know that men at work die most frequently from motor vehicle incidents, machine-related injuries, homicides, and falls? Take steps to protect yourself and others wherever you are.

Be Good to Yourself

Health is not merely the absence of disease; it's a lifestyle. Whether it's getting enough sleep, relaxing after a stressful day, or enjoying a hobby, it's important to take time to be good to yourself. Take steps to balance work, home, and play. Pay attention to your health, and make healthy living a part of your life.

Father's Day Advice and Comments

The most important thing that a father can do for the children is to love their mother.
Thomas M. Hesburgh, President Notre Dame University

My father didn't tell me ho to live, he lived, and let me watch him do it.
Clarence B. Kelland

I watched a small man with thick calluses on both hands worked fifteen and sixteen hours a day. I saw him once literally bleed from the bottoms of his feet, a man who came here uneducated, alone, unable to speak the language, who taught me all I needed to know about faith and hard work by the simple eloquence of his example.
Mario Cuomo

When a father gives to his son, both laugh; when a son gives to his father,both cry.
Jewish Proverb

4 years: My Daddy can do anything!
7 years: My Dad knows a lot, a whole lot.
8 years: My father doe not know quite everything.
12 years: Oh well, naturally Father does not know that either.
14 years: Oh, Father? He is hopelessly old-fashioned.
21 years: Oh that man-he is out of date!
25 years: He know a little bit but not too much.
30 years: I must find out what Dad thinks about.
50 years: What would Dad have thought about that?
60 years: My Dad knew literally everything!
65 years: I wish I could talk it over with Dad once more.


Ceremony for Disposal of Unserviceable Flags

Flag Day, celebrating the adoption of the flag of the United States by the Second Continental Congress in 1777,
is, as always, on June 14. Many people use that day to retire
US flags that have outlived their service life. The American Legion
has had a Ceremony for Disposal of Unserviceable Flags since 1937.
While many American Legion posts dispose of flags by burial at cemeteries.
The post in Troy has a burning ceremony on the afternoon of the 14th.
They will receive flags through the morning of Flag Day.
Their address is 1340 W, Maple (northeast corner of Maple and Crooks).
The phone number is 248 362-2077.


Starting with the 5/19/2008 issue we have had a link to a list of upcoming reunions.(see the ad in the left column). Presently, they are all local High School Reunions. We are inviting readers to submit other reunions. They can be college, club, office, church or even family reunions. On the reunions page there is a link to a page where the information can be submitted on the reunions page.

This week Pontiac High School and Detroit Southeastern reunions were added to the database.

E-Mails from our Readers 

Hey Peggy Jo,
I took your good advice about taking my worn out flags to the American
Legion in Troy. They were very pleased to receive them.
Thanks for the tip.

Hi Peggy Jo,

For some reason, this week your newsletter came to me in this format
rather than the usual one, which requires only that I click to allow pictures to
fill in. Too cumbersome to read this one.

Evie Douglas

Dear Evie,

I had received something myself recently that looked just fine when it arrived and then I resent it to myself and others-- It turned into gibberish.

Will check furher for you.

Peggy Jo

Technical Editors Note:We send the same file to eveyone in the database and we send the same type of file each week.When things change it is usually because the receiving Internet Service Provider node has either changed it's input policy, the incoming newsletter size is above their space limit or the node has reached a storage capacity threshold..
We are trying to limit the size of the newsletter but more organizations are asking us to cover their events. It is a good problem to have.

Dear Peggy Jo,

The first newsletter I received on Monday morning had me confused. I thought I had suddenly lost a week. You did send a corrected newsletter on Tuesday but what happend?


Dear M.L and the many other readers who sent in the same question,

Our technical staff explains it this way: [Due to a power failure in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where the hosting sevice is located, The hosting service had to reload some of our software. They loaded an earlier version and the automatic dating component did not work. Because the newsletter was sent on Monday morning at 12:35 AM it used the next monday's date. When we heard about the problem via the many readers who either called or sent emails, we reloaded the software components and everything worked fine. We have added checking the automatic date system results to our production control checklist so we hope it does not happen again.]
