Emails from our Readers

Hi, Peggy Jo,

 I am emailing you with the suggestion to re-up the Buddy System telephoning. 

My friend in Paris (Richard) had a birthday about a week ago.  Facebook notified me.  So I went to his FB page to send a greeting.  (We do not email or chat as a matter of course).  I was surprised to find that he had died exactly four months earlier!  His son had put up a notice!  I also noted that a nephew had written a FB notice to Richard four months earlier saying that he was quite concerned about him; that no one had heard from him in a while and to "please call or email.  We hope you are okay."  It turned out that it was the same day the son later posted the death notice.   

I sent a message to the son whom I had never met, and I also sent a message to his niece here in the States.  (I had met her once I believe, at her father's house - who was Richard's brother).  The niece wrote back saying that Richard had apparently died of a heart attack in his sleep and it had been several days before anyone found him.  How horrible!  Further she said that her own father ('DJ') had been placed in a group home, as his recovery had not gone as well as had been hoped. 

DJ had had a heart attack several years ago.  His girlfriend had left and had come back into the house for something and found him on the floor.  He had been there over 10 minutes.  She performed CPR and called 911.  He was brain damaged and the result was a functional child in an adult form.  The last I saw him he was giddy and unkempt.  The girlfriend was living in the basement taking care of him.  This is a man who had owned his own successful business and gave seminars to small business people.  He also taught at a university.  How very sad and tragic. 

Let's hope we all have someone checking on us as we do for them so such sad stories can be avoided. 

Sharon  


 

Dear Peggy Jo,

I have many friends about my age that resist even thinking about texting. Most of them don't want to pay for the text messages that they might receive or they are afraid of the unknown.

My cell phone provider allows me to pay $6.00 per month for unlimited text messaging and I am sure other companies provide similar plans. Text messages will never replace a phone conversation. (I am sure that back in 1930's there were people that thought that phone calls would never replace an in person visit). However text messages can replace the requirement to engage in small talk prior to getting to the point of a phone call. Sending an email requires that the recipient opens their email, and we know that does not happen in a timely manner but a text message is almost immediate and it can be short , sweet and to the point. it can also be sent to multiple people at the same time.One does not have to initiate a conversation to just tell someone that they will be late for an appointment or to change the site or time of a meeting and the recipient can reply with a minimum of texting e.g. Ok!.

Our kids use texting to communicate because it is cheaper than using cell phone minutes for keeping in touch. Granted, that anything can be abused and overused but I think people of my age should open themselves to a very efficient communication tool.

Roy from Royal Oak.

" O people, the LORD has already told you what is good, and this is what he requires: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God."
Micah 6:8

Concert of Contrasts: Barefield Super String Quartet @ Imagination Station
Palmer Woods Homes

SUN 2011-08-28
Adventurous jazz with a classical edge will be performed by internationally renowned guitarist/composer A. Spencer Barefield and his Super String Quartet in a totally unexpected space: the shell of a burnt-out house, elegantly dressed-up with tables, chairs, tents, and tasty food and drinks. Barefield and violinist Jannina Barefield Norpoth, violist John Madison, and bassist John-Paul Norpoth'"accustomed to performing in concert halls, jazz clubs and historic mansions as part of the Palmer Woods Music in Homes series'"will imagine a transformation: the future Imagination Station will become a model green rehab, center for art and media, and new living spaces. This benefit concert supports the Imagination Station's work transforming Detroit, eliminating blight and sparking imagination. During intermission, guests will enjoy some of Detroit's finest organic food produced in the immediate neighborhood and prepared and presented by the awesome, mobile kitchen "The Pink Flamingo," plus wine, beverages and other items from Brother Nature Farms, McClure's Pickles, and Valentine Vodka. Summer Soirée will also be the last chance to see the award-winning art installation "Salvaged Landscape." The unique sculpture, which sits on the back balcony concert stage, sets the standard of future art installations at Imagination Station. Guests may want to stay past 5pm because immediately following the Soirée, architect Catie Newell's sculpture will be prepared for removal from Imagination Station and delivery to the Grand Rapids Art Museum (GRAM) for the city's acclaimed ArtPrize event. The Imagination Station's transformation of its houses and vacant lots into a creative community campus will incorporate innovative renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies, such as geothermal heating, electric car charging systems and residential solar systems. The Imagination Station, a new nonprofit organization, is partnering with Barefield's 33-year-old nonprofit arts organization, the Creative Arts Collective. Tickets, $10-$25-$50, can purchased at www.facethestation.com Please visit www.spencerbarefield.com and http://youtu.be/C-XiuFztPRkto learn more about A. Spencer Barefield and the Super String Quartet.
