July Happy Hour

This month's Happy Hour was scheduled for July 3rd, but no information as to its time, location, or whether or not it occurred!


Tom and Ginny Gomez will be celebrating 40 years of wedded bliss on the 20th of July.


New Brighton Camping & Beach Breakfast.....Sue Butler

New Brighton annual camping trip on the weekend of September 19-21.

The Butler's will be getting a group site, so those that are tent camping and would like to be included, you don't need to get your own site.
Let me know if you are interested in being included on the group site. 
I already have Sue Ballard on the list.

Also, we will be doing the beach breakfast again on that Saturday, September 20th.  Details to follow.

Saturday Coffee Clatches Continue
We meet every Saturday morning at 9 am at Le Boulanger at San Felipe and Yerba Buena.  There is a Starbucks across from it if you need something "special" to go with your bagel or pastry.  Vicki has graciously volunteered to be our new Coffee Coordinator!

We will be continuing away coffee on the 3rd Sat of the month during 2014. Here are some new places for the first part of the year. Hope to see more of you at our coffee adventures this year. Look for a carpool email a day or so before the event.

JULY 19:  Dolcetto Cafe and Market - 1399 Lincoln Ave (Downtown Willow Glen at Minnesota)

We can also look forward to:

My Kind of Doctor

Q: Doctor, I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life.  Is this true?
A: Heart only good for so many beats, and that it... Don't waste on exercise.  Everything wear out eventually.  Speeding up heart not make you live longer; it like saying you extend life of car by driving faster.  Want to live longer?  Take nap.

Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?   
A:  Oh no.  Wine made from fruit.  Brandy distilled wine, that mean they take water out of fruity bit so you get even more of goodness that way.  Beer also made of grain.  Bottom up!

Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
A: Well, if you have body and you have fat, your ratio one to one.  If you have two body, your ratio two to one.

Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?
A: Can't think of single one, sorry.  My philosophy: No pain...good! 
Q:  Aren't fried foods bad for you?   
A:  YOU NOT LISTENING!  Food fried in vegetable oil.  How getting more vegetable be bad?

Q  :  Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?
A:  Oh no!  When you exercise muscle, it get bigger.  You should only be doing sit-up if you want bigger stomach. 

Q:  Is chocolate bad for me? 
A:  You crazy?!?  HEL-LO-O!!  Cocoa bean!  Another vegetable!  It best feel-good food around!

Q:  Is swimming good for your figure? 
A:  If swimming good for figure, explain whale to me.

Q:  Is getting in shape important for my lifestyle? 
A:  Hey!  'Round' is shape!

Well... I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets.

And  remember: 
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"   

For  those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health.  It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies.   

1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans... 

5. The Germans drink a lot of beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

CONCLUSION:  Eat and drink what you like.   Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

Travel Agent.....Randi
As many of you know, as of February, I am now a Travel Agent (so is David).  I am an Outside Agent and work from home.  I am affiliated with Gold Rush Getaways (or Travel Masters, Inc.) out of Citrus Heights but  I use the local office in Campbell.  I am following in my Mom's footsteps (who many of you know has been a Travel Agent for 45 years) and have organized many group friend trips, school trips, and our individual trips through the years.  If you need any help planning your vacation, I would appreciate the business.  For business, I am using the e-mail: and you may call either my home or cell phone.  Thanks in advance!  Randi
