Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

If we cannot appeal to people to give up sugar

because of its effects on their health,

maybe we can look at it from

a cosmetic standpoint.

Consider this….too much sugar causes premature wrinkles, gives you an unhealthy pallor, ages your cells causing your skin to be less supple and resilient, and plays havoc with your teeth.

So to look your best and healthiest,

let’s not be so sweet on sugar.

DO YOU NEED A GOOD REALLY HONEST CAR MECHANIC?

Even if you don’t have the need right now, you should cut this out and save it – you will save money later on.

Carlos and Guille Menjivar are the owners of Omega Automotive and are very caring of every single car under their care. They treat every auto with great respect as if it was their only patient.

Omega services all your car needs whether your car is new or old, domestic or foreign. From oil change to brakes or transmissions or any other major repair – Omega is the place for car service and repair.

We have so far taken two cars to Carlos for his expert advice and knowledge. He has taken care of us completely and will even let you know if he feels you are throwing good money into bad.

I can highly recommend Carlos and his crew. They are very well trained, highly honest, and will give you excellent service.

Call either Guille or Carlos today at 818-701-4061

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: 
IS YOUR BRAIN MISSING SOMETHING?

Our brains need certain nutrients to keep us happy, focused and functioning at our best. But moderation is key, and gobbling more of a particular nutrient helps only if you’re making up for a deficiency, said neuroscience professor Gary Wenk, author of “Your Brain on Food: How Chemicals Control Your Thoughts and Feelings.”      READ MORE HERE

WOW

Did you know that when you need a cheap and easy way to sharpen your knives, just cut them a  few times through aluminum foil!  See more WOW tips in next week’s newsletter!!

PAIN IN YOUR UPPER BACK?  SHOULDERS?  LOWER BACK?   Have you tried a TENS unit?

TENS stands for transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation.  Many people are finding relief from certain types of pain using these small devices.  Instead of using painkilling medications, try using one of these alternative types of treatment.  And there are no side effects using a TENS unit as there are when taking medicine for pain.

And in some cases, the use of these devices could help to cut down on the use of excessive pain medication.  I personally have found amazing results using one of these units.

Go see Tal at Topanga Plaza on the lower level at his kiosk across from Victoria’s Secret and try one of these pain relieving units.   You will be amazed how efficiently they will help to relieve some types of discomfort

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

Life has its challenges – your food shouldn’t be one of them. Check the ingredients on the labels and if you can’t spell it, can’t pronounce it, or your Grandmother didn’t eat it, put it right back on the shelf.

Those preservatives, food colorings, and all those other chemicals sure don’t contribute to a healthier you.

Remember – you are what you eat!

HOW EXERCISE KEEPS US YOUNG
Active older people resemble much younger people physiologically, according to a new study of the effects of exercise on aging. The findings suggest that many of our expectations about the inevitability of physical decline with advancing years may be incorrect and that how we age is, to a large degree, up to us.

PAIN IN YOUR UPPER BACK?  SHOULDERS?
LOWER BACK?

Have you tried a TENS unit?

TENS stands for transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation.  Many people are finding relief from certain types of pain using these small devices.  Instead of using painkilling medications, try using one of these alternative types of treatment.  And there are no side effects using a TENS unit as there are when taking medicine for pain.

And in some cases, the use of these devices could help to cut down on the use of excessive pain medication.  I personally have found amazing results using one of these units.

Go see Tal at Topanga Plaza on the lower level at his kiosk across from Victoria’s Secret and try one of these pain relieving units.   You will be amazed how efficiently they will help to relieve some types of discomfort

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

Remember that laughter is the best medicine. It has been proven that humor mitigates stress. Start looking at that glass half full and laugh at life’s smaller problems rather than taking them to heart.

Consider this – 5 minutes of stress can lower your immune system for up to 6 hours!

No one can afford that!

WEIGHT-LOSS COACH, ORNA PURKIN’S BOOK

My friend Orna Purkin has written an amazing book about weight loss and a  healthier life – “The Yummier You: 7 Secrets to a Happy, Healthy, and Yummy Life.”

She’s offering a free download (LIMITED TIME ONLY)    CLICK HERE

This is my review for this lovely informative book:  “I love this book. It’s sensible, it’s “doable,” it’s healthy, and it works. And it works because it comes from the heart. Orna Purkin lived her younger life overweight and very unhappy not being sure how to win over the scale. When she finally saw what could lead her to the results she was looking for, she went after it wholeheartedly and she won. She shares that with her readers in a very basic informative manner. She proves that anyone can not only lose weight but gain health as well.  You too, will love this amazing book. And what better a time to read, share, or gift it than in a New Year!”

3 SOCIAL SECURITY FACTS YOU NEED TO KNOW IN 2015

For the most part, Social Security is a straightforward concept. You pay taxes to the program throughout your working life, and then, upon reaching retirement age, you collect monthly benefits based in large part on the amount you paid into the system over that career.

Still, there are small shifts to the program every year, and 2015 will be no different. Let’s go over three developments to watch for in 2015 if you’re one of the millions of Americans either paying into or receiving money from Social Security.

PAIN IN YOUR UPPER BACK?  SHOULDERS?
LOWER BACK?

Have you tried a TENS unit?

TENS stands for transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation.  Many people are finding relief from certain types of pain using these small devices.  Instead of using painkilling medications, try using one of these alternative types of treatment.  And there are no side effects using a TENS unit as there are when taking medicine for pain.

And in some cases, the use of these devices could help to cut down on the use of excessive pain medication.  I personally have found amazing results using one of these units.

Go see Tal at Topanga Plaza on the lower level at his kiosk across from Victoria’s Secret and try one of these pain relieving units.   You will be amazed how efficiently they will help to relieve some types of discomfort

 

WOW
Did you know that you can avoid people blinking their eyes when taking pictures by telling them to close their eyes and open them on the count of  three.

See next week for more WOW hints.

Winner Favorite Boomer/Senior Newsletter

Daily News Readers Choice Awards

 

Here we are in 2015 and here is my wish

list for all my wonderful loyal readers:

Drink more water

Walk more

Laugh more

More hugs and love

Get more sleep

Eat more fruits and veggies (especially those veggies!)

Remember that although you love sugar,

it sure doesn’t love you

And that this New Year will bring you

peace, joy, much laughter,

and above all good health!

beware1

We got a call from “Microsoft” saying it was getting error messages from our computer. I felt certain it was a scam, but when I asked for a callback number, the caller immediately provided one and some sort of code for the Windows account. Made me pause.  Could this be real?

Well, neither home computer displayed any sort of error message. And an online search confirmed that this is a very common scam for gaining remote access to your computer and everything on it.

So, again, don’t fall for the pitch of anyone who calls you, no matter how convincing. If you think it might be legit, ask for the name of the company or agency they supposedly represent. Then look up the number yourself and call to inquire. (It will most likely be a scam.)

DO NOT EVER LET ANYONE TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR COMPUTER UNLESS YOU KNOW AND TRUST THEM!

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.

MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES

EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS
IRA NEWS

People often ask about the roles that government plays in the IRA Rules.  For those not deeply familiar with IRA’s, this may sound a little odd.  After all, what does the government have to do with retirement accounts anyhow?

The reality of the situation, however, is that many federal and state organizations and entities have some sort of control, power or determination as to how IRA’s are treated.  I have compiled a brief list of some of these entities, but to be sure, this list is far from exhaustive.

PAIN IN YOUR UPPER BACK?  SHOULDERS?  LOWER BACK?

Have you tried a TENS unit?

TENS stands for transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation.  Many people are finding relief from certain types of pain using these small devices.  Instead of using painkilling medications, try using one of these alternative types of treatment.  And there are no side effects using a TENS unit as there are when taking medicine for pain.

And in some cases, the use of these devices could help to cut down on the use of excessive pain medication.  I personally have found amazing results using one of these units.

Go see Tal at Topanga Plaza on the lower level at his kiosk across from Victoria’s Secret and try one of these pain relieving units.   You will be amazed how efficiently they will help to relieve some types of discomfort.

In addition look for substantial discounts on items that were hot sellers at Christmas time such as winter clothing, cookware, kitchen gadgets, housewares, rugs and toys. You may find these on the closeout shelves.

TYPICAL JANUARY ANNUAL SALES: Annual white sales; stock up on linens, sheets and towels.

MAJOR PURCHASES TYPICALLY ON SALE in January:  Appliances, furniture.

FRUITS AND VEGETABLES: avocados, broccoli, cabbage, celery, collards, endive, grapefruit, kale, oranges, rutabagas, tangerines, winter squash.

Buying in season means that these items are often cheaper, fresher, taste better and that money may be going to local farmers.
