I'm so happy to see that more of you are using our Community Bulletin Board in FLASH. In the busy times we live in today, it seems that we frequently don't get to know our neighbors as much as folks used to. Our Bulletin Board is a great way to bring together people of like interests to ask for advice about something you want to do, to sell an item, to get must see things for a planned trip destination or even to let people know about your garage sale. Remember, it costs nothing to post unless you are selling something, then there is a small fee of $20 for individuals (not businesses) This is a great spot for newcomers to our area to get the scoop on all things local. Make sure you share FLASH with them! Be sure to check out the posts on the Board this week. Click here to send us a post and tap into the expertise of our 4,000 plus FLASHERS.  It's fun and oh so easy! ...HAPPY FLASHING!

DID YOU KNOW

For easy removal of those pesky stickers...Try this! 


Heat the stickers with your blow dryer. The heat loosens the glue and allows you to easily peel off the sticker.  No more damaged manicures or frustrating moments!

BREAKING THE NUMBERS' CODES

More and more it seems that we're becoming known by our number...be it our Social Security number, our Driver's License number, or our Credit Card number. Did you know that there are codes embedded in these numbers? The first three digits of the Social Security number are known as the 'area number'. Prior to 1972, the code showed what state issued the card. On cards issued after 1972, the code reflects the zip code (region) of the state of the applicant's mailing address.  In Florida the numbers are 261-267 and 589-595. (There are some exceptions, however, such as a set of numbers which were assigned to railroad employees prior to the 1970's.) To view the numbers for each state, Click Here 
 
Embedded in your Driver's License is your name, gender and date of birth. You'll recognize your birth year, but not the others. This license calculator will show you how it works. Click Here 

Finally, the first six digits of your Credit Card designate the industry (banking, airlines, etc.) and the issuer's name (Visa, etc.). The remaining numbers are your account number. To learn more, Click Here 

 

Knowing these codes may help merchants recognize fake cards and licenses.

 SURPRISING FACTS ABOUT DOGS AND CATS
The smartest, best-trained dog breeds are similar to a
2-year-old child in their ability to understand human speech. They can understand up to 250 words. This slideshow from WebMd tells which breeds are likely to have the "best vocabulary" and also separates facts from myths about our pets. Click here.

UPDATE
A very special thank you to so many of our FLASHERS who took action yesterday and reached out to our Commissioners on the behalf of Youth Guidance!  I thank you from the bottom of my heart and appreciate hearing back from so many of you.  Below are excerpts of a note from Barbara Schlitt Ford, Executive Director for Youth Guidance. 

  Together we can in fact make a difference ... and today we did! THANK YOU!


"We were thrilled at the county budget hearing this morning when the Commissioners did not even let us present, but instead had a brief discussion about the merits of Youth Guidance, and then unanimously voted to maintain YG funding at the current rate ($66k) for the upcoming fiscal year!

 

Many heartfelt thanks to all of the people that emailed and called the Commissioners to express your support. I fully believe this was instrumental in the Commissioners' decision"

 

UNDERSTANDING FATS
All fats have the same amount of calories, but some are more harmful than others: saturated fats and trans fats in particular.
Saturated fats are derived from animal products such as meat, dairy and eggs. But they are also found in some plant-based sources such as coconut, palm and palm kernel oils. These fats are solid at room temperature. Saturated fats directly raise total and LDL (bad) cholesterol levels.
Trans Fats or Hydrogenated Fats are actually unsaturated fats, but they can raise total and LDL (bad) cholesterol levels while also lowering HDL (good) cholesterol levels. Trans fats are used to extend the shelf life of processed foods. Any item that contains "hydrogenated oil"  likely contains trans fats. Hydrogenation is the chemical process that changes liquid oils into solid fats. (Example: Margarine would not be hard without them.) Since 2006, all food manufacturers are required to list trans fat content on food labels.
Unsaturated fats are Monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats. They are fatty acids derived from vegetables and plants.

Monounsaturated fats are liquid at room temperature, but begin to solidify at cold temperatures. This type of fat is preferable to other types of fat and can be found in olives, olive oil, nuts, peanut oil, canola oil and avocados. Some studies have shown that these kinds of fats can actually lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and maintain HDL (good) cholesterol.

Polyunsaturated fats are also liquid at room temperature. These are found in safflower, sesame, corn, cottonseed and soybean oils. This type of fat has also been shown to reduce levels of LDL cholesterol, but too much can also lower your HDL cholesterol.

Omega-3 fatty acids

These include an "essential" fatty acid, which means it's critical for our health but cannot be manufactured by our bodies. Good sources of Omega-3 include cold-water fish, flax seed, soy, and walnuts. These fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease and also boost our immune systems.

So read those food labels carefully and choose your fats wisely. As a rule of thumb, liquid fats are better for you than solid fats.

 

tanning man   UVA and UVB RAYS
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?
The sunlight that reaches us is made up of two types of harmful rays: long wave ultraviolet A (UVA) and short wave ultraviolet B (UVB). Basically, UVA rays can age us and UVB rays can burn us. Overexposure to either can damage the skin. There's also a third type of ray, UVC - these are the shortest and strongest, but thankfully they're absorbed by the ozone and don't typically reach the Earth.
 UVA rays, the "wrinkling ray," penetrate deep into the dermis, the skin's thickest layer. You're almost never safe from exposure to UVA rays as they can go through windows, light clothing and even your windshield, so if you're outside you're getting exposed to UVA rays. Prolonged exposure of UVA cracks and shrinks the collagen

and elastin of our skin.  They are less likely than UVB to cause sunburn, but UVA penetrates the skin more deeply, causing wrinkling and leathering of the skin. Unprotected exposure can lead to premature skin aging and suppression of the immune system. And when your skin's defenses are down, you're at risk for skin cancer.
UVB rays, the "tanning ray," will usually burn the superficial layers of your skin. Prolonged exposure of UVA cracks and shrinks the collagen and elastin of our skin. UVB rays are more potent than UVA in producing sunburn. Therefore these rays are considered the main cause of skin cancers, (basal and squamous cell carcinomas and melanoma).The intensity of UVB rays vary by season, location and time of day, with 10AM to 4PM being the peak hours. Sunburned skin doesn't just feel awful, it can cause permanent damage over time.

 

Use a sunscreen with an SPF (sun protection factor) of 30-50. Higher than that has not proven to be any more effective. Apply one ounce (5 to 6 teaspoons) to cover the entire body 1/2 hour before you go outside and every two hours thereafter.

 TREASURE HUNTING IN OUR OWN BACKYARD!

 

If you've lived in Vero for awhile, you know the story of the lost fleet of 11 Spanish galleons that were wrecked in a hurricane in 1715, scattering their cargo close to the shorelines. Millions of dollars worth of gold and silver coins, jewelry, ship artifacts and other relics were strewn along the east-central coast of Florida. The first major salvage discovery in 1961 brought international attention to our area and caused it to become known as the Treasure Coast.

 

As recently as June of 2010, Captain Greg Bounds and his team found a four foot cannon and 22 gold coins in only waist deep water near a public beach  just off of the coast of Indian River Shores.  Altogether, the sites of six of the sunken ships have been found,  the bulk of the treasure - including the queen's jewels, estimated to be worth close to $900 million - still hasn't been recovered. So, there's still plenty for you to find.

 

 If you want to join in the fun, you can get a metal detector for as little as $60 for the kids "junior" model, on up to several hundred for the more sophisticated ones. They're available at some local stores or online. Commercial treasure hunters must have permits, but Indian River County doesn't have any rules for collecting on the beach. Many folks have found gold and diamond rings and it's "finders /keepers". Be warned, though. All our family ever found were the metal tabs from soda cans!  But, we still enjoy looking!

ANYONE INTERESTED IN PICKLEBALL?    

FROM LAURIE MCFADYEN: Reply    

Pickleball is a fun, energetic game that I call  "less strenuous tennis".  It's been a real hit in some areas, but unfortunately no one is playing here in Vero Beach.  If anyone is interested in starting pickleball here, perhaps we can get some courts to play on locally.  Right now some folks are driving to Ft. Pierce to play.  If you're not familiar with pickleball, google it for some great information and hopefully you'll get hooked.

Whipped Cream Coffee Drink

A PRODUCT THAT WE'VE REDISCOVERED!

 

Years ago, when the 'squirty' cans of whipped cream first came on the market, our family kept one in the fridge all the time. Then, I guess the novelty wore off and, except on special occasions, we pretty much forgot about them. Well, we'll never make that mistake again! Our family has been creating all kinds of luscious and low-cal treats with it this summer. A couple of squirts are only 15-20 calories and turns fresh fruit into a rich dessert. It's also good on instant pudding made with a sugar-free mix and skim milk. We've also make our own 'latte' with coffee, skim milk, crushed ice, sweetener and the whipped cream, and it's a nice cool treat after topping a glass of low-fat chocolate milk.

 

   

                          A WARM SUMMER TREAT 

 

TPW_3002

Okay FLASHERS...You are going to love this one! It's so easy too! If you love warm pies and cobblers with a dollop of ice cream, but not the calories...Then this week's recipe is for you?  This gives you that same treat with many fewer calories.  Truly...!  You can use any seasonal fruit that you like. Below is the mixture we have tried at FLASH. You can increase the fruit portions depending on how many people you will be serving.  

 

2 pealed apples

1 partially ripe mango

 

(Cut into bite sizes and simmer in a skillet for a couple of minutes with a couple of tablespoons of water and 1-tablespoon of butter)

Then add your softer fruits ... we used

1 banana

1/2 cup of blueberries

 

Cook for an additional 2 minutes or to desired firmness

You might need to add a little bit more water. Keep enough liquid in the pan so that it creates its magic and makes a delicious fruity syrup from the sugars and juice in the fruit. 

 

You can add some Cinnamon, allspice, and even some brandy if you'd like.

 

Spoon a portion of fruit in a bowl and then add some squirty whipped cream. The canned whipped cream even comes in a no fat version. This is so yummy ....  

ENJOY!!!   

 

*Warning...this is addictive and you will want to make it every night because it is so easy and takes very little time.

Somehow, Harvath must evade the teams dispatched to kill him long enough to untangle who has framed him for treason and why they want him out of the way.
