MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES
EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS  

Why Choose an Indexed Annuity?

An Indexed Annuity provides the opportunity to benefit from potential gains in the equity or stock markets, but can never risk or lose money with sudden and unexpected downturns of the stock markets!

An Indexed Annuity is a compromise between a fixed interest investment and investing in equities. In some circles it is called a Hybrid Investment because it encompasses both growth of a security product with a NO-RISK investment.

READ MORE HERE ABOUT INDEXED ANNUITIES

So before you purchase an Indexed Annuity, please remember that it is critical you fully understand the various features in the contract you are considering and we look forward to hearing from you!

Call Marc for answers and solutions to your financial questions.

At least, that’s the conclusion of the largest study to date looking at the relationship between eating nuts and longer lives. Nuts are high in unsaturated fats, protein and vitamins, as well as antioxidants that are thought to be linked to a lower risk of heart disease.     READ MORE HERE

GRANDPARENTING HELP

Communication between grandparents and their grandchildren (or even children) can be challenging especially in these times.

Linda Minster, a UCLA graduate with a master’s degree in education, administration and supervision,  works with grandparents to improve their interactions.   A parent and grandparent herself, she is very passionate about ways of improving communication between generations.

Minster, the author/instructor of two classes, “Grandparenting Successfully” and  “Parenting Successfully”, while training teachers at CSUN,  knows  how stressful life can be, particularly today.   She teaches that the best way is when they all work together.   Most grandparents want to enrich their grandchildren’s lives and don’t give themselves  credit  for the positive role models they are.  Her classes explore how they can do this.

She is available for private or group talks.

You may contact her at: tennislady@socal.rr.com

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!

Did you know this way to deal with hard-to-open jars.  To open a stuck jar lid, wrap the lid with a rubber band and give it another try. The band will provide extra traction. If that’s still not enough (or your hands hurt too much), cover the rubberbanded top with a dishtowel, and try again.

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

It’s a classic cartoon joke that rabbits have great vision because of their high intake of carrots.

The good news for humans is that it’s no joke! Vitamin A (which is abundant in carrots) is also known as retinol thanks to its benefits for vision, including

helping to maintain night vision.

But it’s not just carrots that can help maintain eye health. Other orange veggies contain vitamin A, such as sweet potatoes, mangoes, apricots, and cantaloupe.

Did you know that you can keep bananas fresher, longer by wrapping the end of the bunch with plastic wrap. Better yet, separate each banana. The plastic wrap blocks ethylene gases from releasing out of the stem, consequently ripening the fruit too fast. Look for more WOWs in next week’s newsletter!

5 COMMON MEDICARE MISTAKES TO AVOID

Here’s how to keep your health-care costs down in retirement.   READ MORE HERE

 

DON’T KNOW WHAT TO MAKE FOR DINNER?
HAVING FRIENDS OVER FOR LUNCH – WHAT TO MAKE?
TIRED OF THE SAME OLD SAME OLD?

Well, help is on the way. Our friend Susie Jacobson, a health and nutrition expert, has graciously offered to share her simple, easy to make, very healthy recipes with us.

This week she presents “Fettuccini with Spinach Pesto”. With so many people in love with pasta, she created one that is not only rich in nutrients but is easy to prepare. Frozen spinach saves you lots of time and still provides you with good nutritional value. If you have time, you can use fresh spinach for optimum flavor and nutrition.

And we hope you will enjoy it….. hopefully with family or friends!

JUNE ANNUAL SALES

Change or clean all the filters on air conditioners. These should be cleaned at least once a month in hot weather. You should have your central AC cleaned and examined by service company. NOTE: Find an established company with a good reputation. Avoid new companies that have no track record.

Raise the temperature of the AC; You will save about 5% for every degree you raise your thermostat over 70 degrees. Most people find they are quite comfortable at 75 degrees inside instead of 70. It is also less of a shock to your body to go outside into the hot air if the temperature in the house is not very cold.

Air out your basement – this is a good time to prevent mold and rot from taking over.

If your car has not been tuned in six months, get it tuned before summer travel.

TYPICAL ANNUAL SALES: Electronics, summer sporting goods also early summer clothes.

MAJOR PURCHASES TYPICALLY ON SALE: Furniture, mattresses.

FRUITS AND VEGETABLES: Apples, apricots, asparagus, bananas, bermuda onions, blackberries, blueberries, cabbage, cantaloupe, celery, cherries, corn, cucumbers, green or wax beans, green onions, lemons, limes, lettuce, nectarines, okra, peas, pineapples, plums, raspberries, radishes, rhubarb, strawberries, squash, tomatoes, watercress, watermelon. NOTE: With some produce now available all during the year, many people have forgotten when fruits and vegetables are really fresh. Buying in season means that these items are often cheaper, fresher and that money may be going to local farmers.

Daily News Readers Choice Awards

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

Did you know that the more sugar you consume the more nutrients are removed from your body?  People who consume large amounts of sugar have lower levels of fiber, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, folate, niacin, riboflavin, and vitamins A, B-6, B-12, C, and E.

This so compromises your immune system that sugar has been called “suicide in a spoon”.

As you can see sugar is not so sweet!

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

 

 Enjoying berries now that they are in season?

Remember do not wash them until you’re
ready to enjoy them.   Moisture is bad for raspberries, blackberries, and especially blueberries,
fostering mold and rotting.

Remember: Don’t scour until you’re ready to devour.

MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES

EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS
The Story of Barbara…

Meet Barbara – she is a 73 year old widow who has $400,000 in CDs at Wells Fargo Bank. Barbara has social security benefits and a small monthly pension from her working years. The CD money is the source of the income that she needs to close the gap between her monthly income needs and what her social security and pension provides.

In 2009 that $400,000 provided her $18,800 in additional monthly income that gave her a comfortable life. Since 2009 however her income from the CDs has plummeted to $920 a year. That is a stunning 96% drop.
