Our readers respond

Last weeks article certainly got a lot of notice so we are preserving the tips on a webpage located at http://www.peggyjostudio.net/pjdontGetLeftOut.php We did appreciate receiving these emails from Carol and Carl Kolenda

Hi Peggy Jo,

That is excellent to give the suggestions for new people at events new to them . Thanks for doing that! I've had a few (VERY few) responses from women that we weren't friendly....and gave them similar encouragement as you did on your web site. Thank you, thank you. We, do indeed, need to take responsibility for our own happiness and you gave gentle suggestions for doing that.

Love you,
Carol
Peggy Jo,

Just want to let you know that I look forward to your newsletters covering Metro Area Singles activities. I recently used the newsletter info to purchase tickets to See the "West Side Story" and to the "Get Motivated" Seminar at the Palace.

I appreciate all the thought that goes into each letter and the valuable information that you provided your readers.

For example your September 18, 2006 newsletter included a story on how the Internet provides both valued information and misinformation. I went to one of the three links, snopes.com to check- out the 25 top urban legends.

One Hoax I remember was the claim 'that Oliver North warned Congress about Osama bin Laden in 1987'. The false story sounded plausible to me because we remember the Senate Investigations on TV; but, few, if any of us, can remember the falsified facts.

Grandpa Duck picture

Grandpa Duck selected Skipper of the year

Richard Skurtowicz was named Skipper of the year by the Sailing Singles at their annual Skipper's Dinner held at Gino's Surf on Saturday September 30. The event is held each year to honor the Skippers who donated the use of their boats during the summer for the rendezvous, on the water sailing lessons and moonlight cruises. Other skippers were recognized for teaching sailing techniques in the on dry land lessons as well as on the water. Richard was dubbed Grandpa duck earlier this year in a Peggy Jo Studio Newsletter article on "Where are the Polish Ducks? click here" During his acceptance remarks, Richard made mention of the "Polish Ducks"

As in water face reflects face, So a man's heart reveals the man.

Proverbs 27;19


Check it out yourself

An email being sent stating that this is for real-it was checked out on Snopes and then went on to warn every one of a scam that could end up costing them $2450.00.

Snopes.com did say the scam was partially true but the cost was more like $24.50 The email warned that tone must never call an 809 area code or they would be billed for the call. This part was also partially true. Some phone numbers in the 809 area code do use their offshore status to ask people to call them with some excuse that a family member is in trouble or some other reason. When the victim calls they are played a very long message which keeps them on the line and then they are billed through their local phone company up to $25.00

The 809 area code is the British Virgin Islands. So if you want to reach the Mongoose Apartments or the Bitter End Yacht Club, don't be afraid to call but if you get a message asking you to call an unknown number with a vague message ignore it.

If you want to notify someone don't leave a vague message to call back or you will be ignored.

TO YOUR HEALTH!

From Sunrise Magazine

GOT WATER ???

It's the elixir of life. But is it that bottled water really better than the tap?

It's the healthiest thing we can ever put into our bodies; without water, we can't survive. But it seems that faithful old tap water is no longer good enough for many of us.

In 2004 in the U.S. we drank more than 6 billion gallons of bottled water. More than 200 new varieties (literally) flood the market each year. These days it comes enhanced with vitamins, appetite suppressants and artificial flavors. Is it really so pure anymore? If you drink water with added sweeteners, is it really any different from a diet soda - just without the bubbles?

According to a recent study by environmental organization the Earth Policy Institute, about 40 percent of bottled water begins life not in a far-off spring but as municipal tap water, so check first what you're buying. There are further costs to the environment as a result of its transportation and the waste from all those fancy bottles. The price you pay for bottled water is largely for its marketing and distribution. So why not switch back to the tap? Its safety is strictly regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency but if you still have concerns, home-filtered water is cheaper - about 18 cents a gallon, compared to up to $2.50 a gallon for bottled.

Everyone has 20/20 hindsight!

Tales From The Ballpark

Singing Hot Dog Man’s Hot Dog Bag Stolen.

Charley the singing hotdog man My son, Charley, the Singing Hot Dog Man at Comerica Park (who recently won a trip to New York from the Hebrew National Hot Dog company) was delivering hot dogs to some of his customers in the stands when someone just walked up and made off with his bag with the rest of the “Charley” dogs. Witnesses thought it was just a joke, but the bag hasn’t been seen since. It has been suggested that the thief wanted to be Charley for Halloween. If you see someone trick or treating with a big, rectangular, yellow bag give him a trick!

Honest Fan, Honest Vendor At the park, a customer came up to Charley with a $20 bill he said his son had found in the napkin around the dog he had just gotten. The customer said he didn’t know if it was his or Charley’s. They both won when Charley decided to split the difference with him.

Heaviest thing to carry-- a grudge
