The best vitamin for making friends….. B1

Are you good at TRIVIA ??

I just read this on LinkedIN:

Calling All Trivia Buffs!
I’d like to assemble a regular, high-powered trivia team – can be up to six members – for Wednesday trivia nights at John Harvard’s in Smithtown. The games run 7-9 PM; the beer is cheap and fabulous; and the food is very good, too.

I’m an Ivy-educated Ph.D., a former college teacher, a long-time journalist, and quite good at trivia. I often win, even playing solo, but it’s more fun with a regular team. (My old team moved to Florida.)

I’d prefer assembling a team of fellow well-educated Baby Boomer professionals, with broad enough knowledge – of pop culture, as well as academic subjects – to compete well consistently and perhaps play at other Greater New York venues, too.

If you’re interested, please contact me via Linked In or via my E-mail, lifestories@optonline.net. I’ll send you my phone number, and we can chat.

Thank you.

Ellen

Smoking or non-smoking…

You already know that smoking puts you at risk for cancer and other major illnesses. Did you know that smoking also makes you more likely to catch pesky bugs like colds and the flu??

The good news is that that within 30 days after you smoke your last cigarette, your immune system will start to improve.

Remember the wizard of Oz?

Pull the curtain and discover a tall mirror.
Stand in front of this mirror in which you can
see yourself from head to foot. Introduce
yourself to the only person in this world who
can bring you joy and success.

You must sit down and become acquainted with
that person, as you never became acquainted
with that person before.

You will be of no value to yourself or to the world
until you know that person better.

Love, beauty, joy, and worship are forever building,
tearing down and rebuilding the foundation of each
man’s soul.

YOU CAN IF YOU THINK YOU CAN

Incredibly Edible Delites, Inc. started in 1984, as a cottage industry in the kitchens of the founders Susan Ellman and Ellen Davis. What started out as a great party idea quickly grew into a healthy, exciting, delectably delicious alternative to sending flowers.

Word of these delicious arrangements has spread far and wide causing Incredibly Edible Delites, Inc. to grow.  Incredible Franchise Corporation was formed when the first franchise location opened in September 1993 in Westville, New Jersey. Since that time, the company has blossomed into a multi-franchise, coast-to-coast organization.

FruitFlowers has redefined the fruit basket. Instead of the traditional apples and oranges stacked in a pyramid design, picture a floral bouquet made entirely out of freshly cut summer fruit. This is a real palate-pleaser throughout the year!
