I was told recently about a woman who had felt totally out of place attending one of the Singles Club gatherings. It was her first visit, according to the report, and she felt that she was totally ignored (except by the lovely lady sharing the story with me). Apparently, the people there were all mingling, but she wasn’t included.

Well, I felt badly about her (perhaps true) perception and I apologize on behalf of all of us who can easily get caught up so busily chatting with friends and acquaintances that we may not notice someone new. So, to our readers who may suddenly decide to visit for the first time a group, a dance, or an open-home party, I’d like to offer these suggestions:

-- Although many of the clubs have memberships, not everyone goes to everything and there are so many activities, so sometimes it’s difficult to recognize when a person you wind up talking to is a newcomer or not. On the other hand, oftentimes there are name tags indicating whether one is a member or a guest.

-- What may look like a clique could actually be the re-acquainting of people who have been out of touch. Many times the gatherings bring folks together who only see one another at these events.

-- If you are new coming to any of these activities and feel shy or uncomfortable, when you register or sign in be sure to let that person know you are new on the scene and would like to be introduced to a couple of people. Then try to introduce yourself to three more people (force yourself!). We all had to do it at one time or another.

-- Look around for the most out-going people at the event. Chances are, if you introduce yourself to them as a first-time visitor, they will take you around to meet others there.

-- Don’t wait to be noticed. Sometimes it is hard to know who is new. Then again, you may not be the only new person there.

-- Come with a friend. Sometimes it is easier to mingle when you have a buddy with you.

-- Call ahead of time if a phone number is listed in the announcement. Tell the person who answers you are a "newbie" and would like someone to watch out for you.

-- Or, you could e-mail me and, if I plan to attend the event, I will meet you there and introduce you around. If I don’t plan on attending, I will be glad to connect you up with someone who will be there.

Sometimes, we get so caught up in our own feelings that we think of the worst possible scenarios. Socialization is easier for some than for others, but I have found that these events, on the whole, are welcoming and friendly. So, if you are out there and had a bad experience, try again by using these suggestions.

Try this..

This is without a doubt one of the coolest PC- Illusions I have seen so far.
Follow the instructions:
  1. Relax and concentrate on the 4 small dots in the middle of the picture for about 30-40 seconds.
  2. Then, take a look at a wall near you( any smooth, single colored surface).
  3. You will see a circle of light developing.
  4. You might have to blink your eyes to see a figure appear.
  5. What do you see?
Optical Illusion


There’s NO good reason to shoot mourning doves:

  • Doves are NOT overpopulated.
  • Doves are shot for target practice, NOT for food.
  • Doves are NOT harmful to humans, property or crops.
  • There are already 40 game bird species in Michigan and there’s NO reason to add doves.
  • It has been Michigan’s tradition to protect mourning doves since 1905, and there’s NO reason to change that now.

By: Amy J. Kramer
Yom Kippur, the Sabbath of Sabbaths, is observed the tenth day of the Hebrew month of Tishri, September or early October in the secular calendar.

The first Yom Kippur took place after Moses returned from his second trip to Mt. Sinai with the replacement set of tablets containing the Ten Commandments. He had broken the original set when he returned the first time to discover the children of Israel worshipping a golden calf rather than G-d, who brought them out from Egypt.

Moses successfully pleaded with G-d on their behalf, and on the first of Elul, he ascended the mountain, this time for a second set of tablets. In Moses' absence, the nation fasted from sunrise to sunset. Moses descended the mountain on the tenth of Tishri. Upon returning, Moses found the nation truly repentant and announced that G-d had forgiven them. He decreed that the tenth of Tishri would remain a day of atonement for all generations.

And this shall be an eternal law for you. Each year on the tenth day of the seventh month you must fast and do no work. This is true of the native born and of the proselyte who comes to join you. This is because on this day you shall have all your sins atoned, so that you will be cleansed. Before G-d you will be cleansed of your sins. It is a Sabbath of Sabbaths to you, and a day upon which you must fast. This is a law for all time. (Leviticus 16:29-31)
