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.

In a world that cries out desperately!

Miracle of peace, this Hanukkah!

10 Ways to Avoid Holiday Weight Gain

Posted by Joy Bauer, M.S., R.D., C.D.N.
Joy Bauer Enjoy the holiday spirit without wrecking havoc on your waistline. Wishing you a healthy and happy holiday!
1. Exercise religiously Regular physical activity throughout the holiday season will burn calories, tone your body and empower you to make smart food choices. Aim for 5 days each week and at least 30 minutes per session.
2. Recycle edible gifts If you're watching your weight and can't resist the temptation of decadent sweet treats in the house, send them off! Recycle fruit cakes, date breads, chocolates and homemade cookies. You'll save your body thousands of unnecessary calories (and the generous gift giver will never know).

Tips for managing holiday parties
3. Never go to a party hungry Eat something that will take the edge off your hunger and keep blood sugar levels steady -- you'll have better resolve at the party. The perfect pre-party snack should combine high quality, complex carbs with protein. Three examples (each approximately 200 calories):
• Apple + 8 ounces nonfat plain or flavored yogurt
• One cup of lentil or bean soup
• 2 ounces turkey or ham piled on one slice whole wheat bread with lettuce, tomato and mustard
4. Wear something fabulous and fitted You're less apt to eat when you feel good about how you look (and of course, your clothing is snug).
5. Hang out with the talkers vs. the eaters Eating is contagious. You don't want to surround yourself with people pigging out. Remember that a festive party is about great conversation and holiday spirit - not just food.
6. Easy on the hors d'oeuvres Don't use up your calories at the beginning of a party. Select THREE of anything you want... and after that, stick with less caloric pickings (cold or grilled shrimp, chicken on a skewer, and crudités)
7. Load your plate with the right stuff Fill half your plate with vegetables and divide the rest between protein and starch.
8. Eat slowly Nutrition scientists at the University of Rhode Island recently found that slow eaters take in fewer calories at a meal than people who eat quickly.
9. Be selective with splurges - decide which special foods you really want and enjoy them. Go out of your way to skip the rest.
10. Alternate alcoholic drinks with club soda Alcohol contains many calories, and also stimulates your appetite and reduces your willpower. If booze is a must, cut the calories in half and have more control over your food and actions by alternating each drink with a seltzer or mineral water (add a twist of lime or lemon).

Emails from our readers

love your e-mail. Keep it coming.
Phyllis A. Noda, Ed.D., President and CEO
The Center for Comprehensive Education Service And Research (C.E.S.A.R.)
Dear Peggy Jo
I am new to the area. I do ballroom dance, want to learn sailing and become involved with an active community of singles
Susan
Welcome !! We are forwarding your email address to the membership committees. Feel free to attend any of the events that you see in this newsletter.
Dear Peggy Jo,
Sometimes I do not get all the pictures to print. What is wrong?
Fred

We don't know why these things happen happen from time to time. It could be some constraint by your ISP or it could be the size of the newsletter. We do place a copy of each newsletter in our archives. You can look at that copy with your browser rather than your email viewer, which does have some limitations.

Dear Peggy Jo
Your newsletter is getting too large however I don't have any suggestions on what to eliminate.
Ralph L.
Peggy Jo,
I like the little personal endorsements you give your advertisers. Nice, homey touch.
Sharon
PeggyJo,
Just a note to say that you are doing a great job in serving our singles community with the unique social and intellectual information you provide in your newsletter. The piece "Why is it?" provided good humor, and listed interesting questions about our use of words and expression.
Thanks PeggyJo.
Mike


Hi Peggy Jo:
I’m responding to your note DON'T FEEL LEFT OUT ! I agree with your suggestions; they are good ones. However, I would add one more. Get involved!

Pick an organization that most closely lines up with your goals, ideals, favorite activities and volunteer to help with something. You don’t have to be super talented, articulate, or even pretty/handsome to help out. By doing this, you at least meet the individuals that are in charge who most likely know just about everybody, plus it gives you something to do during the activity. And don’t forget it takes a lot of exposure to meet a lot of people. So don’t be discouraged if you don’t meet the person of your dreams the first time. If the activity is something you like anyway, you’re likely to enjoy yourself regardless.

It’s worked very well for me over the years and provided a network of friends I wouldn’t otherwise have.

Merry Christmas,
David
Peggy Jo,
Just want tell you that this December 11, 2006 is a great newsletter. You have provided a great mix of information and humor for singles activities around this Holiday season. The advertisers are all appealing too. Anyone reading this letter should feel that they do not have to be alone during the Holidays.

Carl
Peggy, How can I advertise in your excellent newsletter? what is your circulations?

Office Party re-scheduled

Annual Office Christmas Party for people who do not have an office has been re-scheduled to Wednesday December 27. After consulting with the Human Resources, and Public Relations departments it was decided that too many conflicts prior to Christmas, would prevent many of the officeless personnel from attending. Those people with offices will also be available between the holidays.
