Vitamin D – nature put it there to help protect us.

 

If you cannot get 15 minutes of sunlight daily, then at least take a Vitamin-D supplement. This is  

one of the most powerful ways to help insure

increased health and wellness.

 

So try to visit Dr. Sun everyday – considered by some  

to be the best doctor on the planet!

4 NASTY PHONE AND EMAIL SCAMS   

Given the recent number of annoying telemarketing calls and suspicious emails I’ve received the past two weeks, it’s clear that scammers did not take the summer off. In fact, they seem to be busier than ever. Odds are you’ve gotten at least one, too.  READ MORE HERE  

important1  If sometimes you find you are not receiving our newsletter (on Thursday mornings), please check your “junk” or “spam” files.  It may have inadvertently ended up in one of those files.

 

Also one of the very first things you will see when you open the newsletter is this “Having trouble viewing this email? Click here “.  If you will in fact click on that, it will open up the entire newsletter so that everything including all the information on the right hand side, will be visible.  This way the newsletter is much easier to read.

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

Regular consumption of dates has been found to check the growth of the bad bacteria and help in the growth of friendly bacteria in the intestines.

Dates are already known as a laxative food, and other benefits include lowering the bad cholesterol and strengthening your heart.

Nature always seems to have a

solution for every problem.

So make a date with a date right now!

According to Officer Daryl Scoggins of the Vanowen Police Department, burglaries south of Ventura are picking up again. And if it’s happening there it could be happening in your neighborhood.

MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES

EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS
Minimum Social Security Benefit Protects Survivors

Everyone knows that Social Security rules are complicated and occasionally even I get them wrong.  For example,  I had always relied on the Social Security Administration’s publications that clearly stated: “If the person who died was receiving reduced benefits, we base your survivor benefit on that amount. The maximum survivor benefit amount is limited to what he or she would have received if they were still alive.”

READ MORE HERE ABOUT THESE BENEFITS

Finally, if you are eligible for retirement benefits on your own earnings record as well survivor benefits, you can collect one benefit first and switch to the other later if it would result in a bigger benefit.

Call Marc for answers and solutions to your financial questions.

THE WORLD’S SMALLEST TRAVEL WASHING MACHINE 

The Scrubba wash bag is a lightweight device for washing clothes anytime, anywhere. It allows you to wash 2-3 T-shirts, jocks and socks in only a few minutes. The Scrubba wash bag features a highly flexible internal washboard that is backed by our unique pattern grip surface. To wash clothing, a user simply adds water and cleaning liquid (e.g. shampoo or body wash); seals the bag and expels excess air; rubs the dirty clothing against the washboard from outside the bag for 30 sec to 3 mins; opens the bag and rinses the clothing. By taking a few minutes every 2-3 days to wash what you have been wearing, you can reduce your luggage making your backpack much lighter.

And for a wonderful treat add some raisins

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

Always do some good everyday – even if you just smile at a stranger in the check out line or bring a

single flower to a friend who’s  down.

You never know what troubles someone

else is suffering.

Remember this – the good and kindness you do will always come back to you in one way or another. It costs nothing and the rewards are endless.

And it also helps you to be well!

beware1

Yesterday I received an email that said “A check exceeded your requested activity alert”. It was very authentic with the bank’s logo on it. Problem is they sent it to another email of mine – one that my bank does not have on record for me. So I knew immediately it was a scam. They went on to ask me to “click here” so I could clear it up.

DO NOT ANSWER THESE KIND OF EMAILS – THEY ARE SCAMMERS LOOKING FOR YOUR INFORMATION SO THEY CAN GET INTO YOUR BANK ACCOUNTS!  DELETE THEM IMMEDIATELY.  IF ANY QUESTIONS GO TO YOUR BANK AND ASK THEM IF THEY SENT IT.

important1  If sometimes you find you are not receiving our newsletter (on Thursday mornings), please check your “junk” or “spam” files.  It may have inadvertently ended up in one of those files.

 

Also one of the very first things you will see when you open the newsletter is this

“Having trouble viewing this email? Click here.  If you will in fact click on that, it will open up the entire newsletter so that everything including all the information on the right hand side, will be visible.  This way the newsletter is much easier to read.
