Hello Everyone,

Donna and I just got back from a 5 day trip in Hawaii. We had won an award
trip through Nature's Sunshine. There were about 400 of us over there
enjoying the sights and the different foods. It was very relaxing and fun!

Here at home, we have been real thrilled as we are seeing more and more
flowers and bushes beginning to bloom. Over in Hawaii there were lots of
interesting colors of flowers and plants. We were given a lei when we
arrived and at at the hotel they had a class on lei making. I went to the
class and made a lei for Donna. It was quite amazing how simple it was to

Hope you enjoy this issues funny. I laughed really hard when I read it.
Also, if any of you make the recipe let me know how it turns out. Mexican
food is my favorite kind of food.

Well I hope you are having a wonderful week. Please remember to forward
this ezine to family and friends. After all, it's how we grow!

Thanks for your readership!

Until next time,

(HealthScoutNews) -- There's a new Web site for older adults to access
health and medical research information of interest to them.

The Web site, called Health Compass, is being launched this week at the
Bridging the Workforce Gap for our Aging Society conference. It's designed
as an interactive, self-study program meant to assist older adults and their
caregivers in becoming better informed participants and decision makers in
their health care.

The site aims to improve older adults' ability to access, evaluate and act
on health and research information about aging. The site provides
suggestions on where to find high quality health information on the Internet
and in other media sources.

It also provides older adults with tools that help them critically evaluate
and interpret health information. That includes definitions of research
terms and the different kinds of medical research studies.

Health Compass is a partnership between the American Federation for Aging
Research (AFAR) and the Merck Institute of Aging and Health.

"It's not coming from me. I'm not pushing her. She wants to do soccer, art,
dance, and cooking, and she goes to afternoon religious school twice a week.
She has to eliminate something!" exclaims the mother of a 7-year-old.

"I don't have anything scheduled on Sunday afternoons. That's when I have my
life," a 14-year-old reasons.

These days, it's hard to tell if it's the parents pushing or the kids trying
to keep up. Clearly, some kids have too much to do and not enough time to do
it. Whatever the culprit, one thing's for sure - something's gotta give. Is
your child too busy?

Increased consumption of fruits and vegetables has been associated with a
reduced risk of many diseases, including heart disease, cancer, eye and skin
conditions, joint problems as well as some degenerative diseases. The
pigments responsible for the coloration of these fruits and vegetables
appear to offer a host of protective benefits to the body. Many of these
pigments are found in Carotenoid Blend.

Laughter Is Good Medicine

A guy was on the side of the road hitchhiking on a very dark night and in
the middle of a storm. The night was rolling on and no car went by. The
storm was so strong he could hardly see a few feet ahead of him.

Suddenly he saw a car coming toward him and stop.

Without thinking about it, the guy got into the back seat, closed the door
and then realized there was nobody behind the wheel! The car started
slowly; the guy looked at the road and saw a curve coming his way. Scared,
he started to pray begging for his life. He hadn't come out of shock, when
just before he hit the curve, a hand appeared through the window and moved
the wheel. The guy, paralyzed in terror, watched how the hand appeared
every time right before a curve.

Gathering his strength, the guy finally jumped out of the car and ran to the
nearest town. Wet and in shock, he went to a restaurant and started telling
everybody about the horrible experience he went through.

A silence enveloped everybody when they realized the guy was serious.

About half an hour later, two guys walked in the same restaurant. They
looked around for a table when one said to the other,

"Look John, that's the dummy who got in the car when we were pushing it."
