FOR THOSE WHO ARE 60 yrs OLD AND ABOVE PLEASE READ THIS.
This is for you. I really like what is said here and am going to try my best to follow it. Thank you to the person who wrote this. May God bless us all as we strive to be a blessing to others at this age.
🚩Between 60 and death. It's time to use the money you saved up. Use it and enjoy it. Don't just keep it for those who may have no notion of the sacrifices you made to get it. Remember there is nothing more dangerous than a son or daughter-in-law with big ideas for your hard-earned capital.
🚩Warning: This is also a bad time for investments, even if it seems wonderful or fool-proof. They only bring problems and worries. This is a time for you to enjoy some peace and quiet.
🚩Stop worrying about the financial situation of your children and grandchildren, and don't feel bad spending your money on yourself. You've taken care of them for many years, and you've taught them what you could. You gave them an education, food, shelter, and support. The responsibility is now theirs to earn their own money.
🚩Keep a healthy life, without great physical effort. Do moderate exercise (like walking every day), eat well, and get your sleep. It's easy to become sick, and it gets harder to remain healthy. That is why you need to keep yourself in good shape and be aware of your medical and physical needs. Keep in touch with your doctor, do tests even when you're feeling well. Stay informed.
🚩Always buy the best, most beautiful items for your significant other. The key goal is to enjoy your money with your partner. One day one of you will miss the other, and the money will not provide any comfort then, enjoy it together.
🚩Don't stress over the little things. You've already overcome so much in your life. You have good memories and bad ones, but the important thing is the present. Don't let the past drag you down and don't let the future frighten you. Feel good in the now. Small issues will soon be forgotten.
🚩Regardless of age, always keep love alive. Love your partner, love life, love your family, love your neighbor and remember: "A man is not old as long as he has intelligence and affection."
🚩Be proud, both inside and out. Don't stop going to your hair salon or barber, do your nails, go to the dermatologist and the dentist, keep your perfumes and creams well stocked. When you are well-maintained on the outside, it seeps in, making you feel proud and strong.
🚩Don’t lose sight of fashion trends for your age, but keep your own sense of style. You’ve developed your own sense of what looks good on you – keep it and be proud of it. It’s part of who you are.
🚩ALWAYS stay up-to-date. Read newspapers, watch the news. Go online and read what people are saying. Make sure you have an active email account and try to use some of those social networks. You'll be surprised at what old friends you'll meet.
🚩Respect the younger generation and their opinions. They may not have the same ideas as you, but they are the future and will take the world in their direction. Give advice, not criticism, and try to remind them that yesterday's wisdom still applies today.
Never use the phrase: “In my time.” Your time is now. As long as you’re alive, you are part of this time.
🚩Some people embrace their golden years, while others become bitter and surly. Life is too short to waste your days on the latter. Spend your time with positive, cheerful people, it'll rub off on you and your days will seem that much better. Spending your time with bitter people will make you feel older and harder to be around.
🚩Do not surrender to the temptation of living with your children or grandchildren (if you have a financial choice, that is). Sure, being surrounded by family sounds great, but we all need our privacy. They need theirs and you need yours. Even then, do so only if you feel you really need the help or do not want to live by yourself
🚩Don't abandon your hobbies. If you don't have any, make new ones. You can travel, hike, cook, read, dance. You can adopt a cat or a dog, grow a kitchen garden, play cards, checkers, chess, dominoes, golf.
🚩Try to go. Get out of the house, meet people you haven't seen in a while, experience something new (or something old). The important thing is to leave the house from time to time. Go to museums, go walk through a park. Get out there.
🚩Speak in courteous tones and try not to complain or criticize too much unless you really need to. Try to accept situations as they are.
🚩Pains and discomfort go hand in hand with getting older. Try not to dwell on them but accept them as a part of life.
🚩If you've been offended by someone – forgive them. If you've offended someone-apologize. Don't drag around resentment with you. It only serves to make you sad and bitter. It doesn't matter who was right. Someone once said: "Holding a grudge is like taking poison and expecting the other person to die." Don't take that poison. Forgive, forget, and move on with your life.
🚩Laugh. Laugh away your worries Remember, you are one of the lucky ones. You managed to have a life, a long one. Many never get to this age, never get to experience a full life.
My valued friends, enjoy peaceful life at this point in your life ...
Don't worry... be happy. 🥰

Does Dettol ~ Vinegar or Sanitizer kill-the Coronavirus (COVID-19)?
I decided to use my ‘’Corona Time’’ wisely by researching, the best Disinfectant or Sanitizer.
I recall as a Child we use to have Dettol in our bath water and to disinfect the toilets etc.
Hanging out with my girl friend Jackie Rose 🌹 one evening she mention that the Dettol bottle states Corona Virius I also remember seeing those words some where before, thank you Jackie for stimulating my memory. So I was going to make sanitizer, but decided to do some research first~this is what I found out.
Vinegar is not an EPA registered disinfectant or sanitizer, which means you can't count on vinegar to kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses. ... Vinegar DIY cleaners can leave behind as much as 20% of the germs that make families sick because it's not potent enough to kill all of them.
“Also, vinegar needs to sit on a surface for up to 30 minutes in order to reduce bacteria. You can't just spray it and wipe.”
Alcohol rub sanitizers kill most bacteria, and fungi, and stop some viruses. Alcohol rub sanitizers containing at least 70% alcohol (mainly ethyl alcohol) kill 99.9% of the bacteria on hands 30 seconds after application and 99.99% to 99.999% in one minute.
Alcohol-based hand sanitizers can “quickly reduce the number of microbes” but they won’t kill all types of germs, according to the CDC.
If you’re going to use hand sanitizer as a hand-washing alternative, it’s important to use it correctly and to use the right kind.
The CDC recommends only using hand sanitizers that are 60 to 95 percent alcohol.
If hand sanitizer has less than 60 percent, it may not work as well at killing many germs and may just “reduce the growth of germs” instead of killing them, the CDC says.
It’s important to rub the sanitizer all over your hands until they are dry, the CDC says. Don’t dry them with hand towels or dryers.
2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a new strain of coronavirus. It is not yet available for commercial testing.
Specific Dettol products have demonstrated effectiveness (>99.9% inactivation) against coronavirus strains from the same family as the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) in third party laboratory testing, when used in accordance with the directions for use. These products are: Dettol Antibacterial Surface Cleanser Spray, Dettol Antibacterial Surface Cleanser Wipes, Dettol All-In-One Disinfectant Spray, and Dettol Disinfectant Liquid.
Given the structural similarities of the COVID-19 virus to the coronavirus strains tested previously (SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV, Human Coronavirus), and based on the evidence available to us, we would expect our Dettol products (listed above) to be effective against the new strain. Definitive scientific confirmation of this, as with all other commercially available virucides, can only be provided once testing against COVID-19 Coronavirus has been conducted, following release of the strain by relevant health authorities.
The CDC and World Health Organization specifically advises people to wash hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer as a key preventative measure against the spread Coronavirus COVID-19. A good quality disinfectant will help reduce risk to families.
Dettol Hand Sanitizers use ethanol (alcohol) as the germ disinfection active ingredient in line with CDC and WHO recommendations.
So guys stop stressing about hand sanitizer🤔 just grab a bottle of Dettol available on Amazon or bars of Dettol soap and make ur own spray to disinfect ur hands and surfaces.
Be safe and kind 🙏🏻
I am sorry to post this announcement with a heavy heart, but for the safety for my seniors at 101st Adult Day Care -the center is officially closed until March 30th
Astrology and the coronavirus.
Now, we move into a new week facing shaken global markets, new international travel restrictions and the first recorded coronavirus death in the U.S.—plus virus outbreaks in over 50 countries. Here’s an explainer of astrology and the coronavirus:
Bioterrorism and the Year of the Bat, er, Rat.
2. The first case was detected as Jupiter entered Capricorn, a tricky placement.
On December 1, 2019, the very first case of “2019-nCoV,” as the virus is called, was detected in Wuhan, China. This occurred as Jupiter—the planet of international travel and exchange—was preparing to end a 13-month visit to its home sign of Sagittarius. On December 2, Jupiter moved into “fall” (its weakened position) in Capricorn, joining Saturn and Pluto in this sobering sign. The effect of Jupiter’s presence could have acted like a bit of a release valve on things that were kept suppressed or hidden—including a virus.
3. Saturn and Pluto have met up at times of war, recession and financial overhaul.
Saturn and Pluto meet every 33-35 years, but in a different zodiac sign, taking nearly three centuries to return to a sign. The last Pluto-Saturn conjunction on November 8, 1982, coincided with the end of a brief recession. Historically, there have been incidences of economic shakeups or wars when these two planets unite.
The Saturn-Pluto unions of 1914-15 dovetailed with the start of World War I and stretched until the next Saturn-Pluto conjunction (in Leo) in 1947, which aligned with the end of World War II.
On November 16, 1914, the U.S. Federal Reserve began operations as Saturn and Pluto (both retrograde) united in Cancer. Right before that, the world was rocked by the Financial Panic of 1914. With impending war threatening global markets, spooked investors pulled out of their securities in a scramble for cash and gold. This led to an unprecedented shutdown of the London Stock Exchange for five months, and the U.S. Stock Exchange for four months. For six weeks during August and early September 1914—as Saturn and Pluto made close contact—almost every stock exchange in the world was closed.
The Year of the Rat began on January 24, 2020, at the Lunar New Year—and weirdly enough, coronavirus was originally pinned on a member of the rodent family, the bat. From where does the coronavirus actually originate? With crafty, obscuring Pluto shrouding facts in layers of secrecy, it’s no surprise that theories are mixed.
Could this be an act of bioterrorism as many are now speculating? With Pluto, the ruler of the underworld, aligned with weighty Saturn in Capricorn, the sign that rules corporate and government interests, that’s likely to remain a developing story.
Saturn is headed into Aquarius, an air sign, on March 21.
On March 21, grizzled Saturn will begin its first leg of a three-year journey into Aquarius, which is an air sign. This indicates that some challenges may come through anything spread through the atmosphere, including respiratory infections and airborne diseases.
As boundary-builder Saturn enters the sign that rules society and community—all group gatherings—this phase will impact community and social services. We will likely see Saturn’s imprint on public health and government-operated offices under Aquarian rule, with long lines and bureaucracy. With Saturn’s tendency to be extra cautious, people could become more divided, quarantining or barring access. Saturn in social Aquarius could bring the cancellation of events, holidays and conferences—anywhere large groups of people gather.
A shortage of face masks may well be ahead of us since China produces 90% of the world supply, to say nothing of the need for generic medicines, which China also manufactures. Meantime, as we consider astrology and the coronavirus, let’s take a cue from Aquarius, the Water Bearer…and wash our hands.
Tightened regulations around community, pharmaceuticals and more.
What is going on in that laboratory? And how will the lab-to-market prices and process be impacted? Saturn in Aquarius will reveal. Saturn rules rules, laws and regulations—and Aquarius rules innovation, including anything chemical or pharmaceutical. The ruling planet of Aquarius, Uranus, is in money-minded Ta**us until 2026, which could double this effect.
We may also see more government Internet shutdowns, as authoritarian Saturn descends on the sign that rules public information and technology. This could continue to spark the uprisings associated with Uranus and Aquarius, especially as people clamor for access to information that has a direct bearing on their daily lives.
Air travel restrictions (and fears) will be strong until July.
Restrictive Saturn’s move into airborne Aquarius can impact the flight industry, short-circuiting business travel. Saturn will make its first foray here from March 21 to July 1, then it will return again from December 17, 2020, until March 7, 2023. Recent stats show that the airlines could stand to lose more than $29 billion, according to the International Air Transport Authority. With Jupiter, the planet of global travel, grounded in earth sign Capricorn until December, the coronavirus outbreak could see lots of people planning road trips for the summer instead—or opting for “staycations” for extra safety measures.
Cryptic events and crypto…making way for a new currency?
As more industries are impacted by the coronavirus manufacturing shutdown, we may see an acceleration in the development of bitcoin or a new economy—a trend we predicted all the way back in 2018 when radical changemaker Uranus started its eight-year revolution through Ta**us. (Uranus was last here from 1934 to 1942.)
The threat to the supply chain may break open opportunities for the emerging technology of “blockchain,” forcing us to get serious about new economic models and attendant payment platforms.
Meantime, Pluto is forging through Capricorn until 2024, which might accelerate developments or alternatives for new money models over the next four years.
We’ll keep updating this post about astrology and the coronavirus as events develop. In the meantime, take the precautions you feel are right for you—and stay safe, friends.🙏🏻
Happy Holi 2020 from 101 Adult Day Care..
Just FYI please ..
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - CORONAVIRUS
Last evening dining out with friends, one of their uncles, who's graduated with a master's degree and who worked in Shenzhen Hospital (Guangdong Province, China) sent him the following notes on Coronavirus for guidance:
1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold
2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose.
3. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees. It hates the Sun.
4. If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne.
5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours - so if you come into contact with any metal surface - wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap.
6. On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. normal laundry detergent will kill it.
7. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice.
8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but - a lot can happen during that time - you can rub your eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on.
9. You should also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice.
10. Can't emphasise enough - drink plenty of water!
1. It will first infect the throat, so you'll have a sore throat lasting 3/4 days
2. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes about 5/6 days further.
3. With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing.
4. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you're drowning. It's imperative you then seek immediate attention.🙏🏻
How to Use a Trust in Medicaid Planning!!!
With everyone Having Medicare With limited income￼ and trying to get Medicaid￼
To have benefits such as food stamp, CDPAP, OTC etc. I i’m tiresome trying to help the elders in our community.
Here is some information that can explain the different kinds of trust that you can consider.
With Medicaid planning, you may be able to preserve some of your estate for your children or other heirs while meeting Medicaid's low asset limit.
The problem with transferring assets is that you have given them away. You no longer control them, and even a trusted child or other relative may lose them.
A safer approach is to put them in an irrevocable trust.
A trust is a legal entity under which one person -- the "trustee" -- holds legal title to property for the benefit of others -- the "beneficiaries." The trustee must follow the rules provided in the trust instrument. Whether trust assets are counted against Medicaid's resource limits depends on the terms of the trust and who created it.
A "revocable" trust is one that may be changed or rescinded by the person who created it. Medicaid considers the principal of such trusts (that is, the funds that make up the trust) to be assets that are countable in determining Medicaid eligibility. Thus, revocable trusts are of no use in Medicaid planning.
An "irrevocable" trust is one that cannot be changed after it has been created. In most cases, this type of trust is drafted so that the income is payable to you (the person establishing the trust, called the "grantor") for life, and the principal cannot be applied to benefit your or your spouse. At your death the principal is paid to your heirs. This way, the funds in the trust are protected and you can use the income for your living expenses. For Medicaid purposes, the principal in such trusts is not counted as a resource, provided the trustee cannot pay it to you or your spouse for either of your benefits.
However, if you do move to a nursing home, the trust income will have to go to the nursing home.
You should be aware of the drawbacks to such an arrangement. It is very rigid, so you cannot gain access to the trust funds even if you need them for some other purpose. For this reason, you should always leave an ample cushion of ready funds outside the trust.
You may also choose to place property in a trust from which even payments of income to you or your spouse cannot be made. Instead, the trust may be set up for the benefit of your children, or others. These beneficiaries may, at their discretion, return the favor by using the property for your benefit if necessary.
However, there is no legal requirement that they do so.
One advantage of these trusts is that if they contain property that has increased in value, such as real estate or stock, you (the grantor) can retain a "special testamentary power of appointment" so that the beneficiaries receive the property with a step-up in basis at your death. This will also prevent the need to file a gift tax return upon the funding of the trust.
Remember, funding an irrevocable trust within the five years prior to applying for Medicaid (the "look-back period") may result in a period of ineligibility. The actual period of ineligibility depends on the amount transferred to the trust.
Testamentary trusts are trusts created under a will. The Medicaid rules provide a special "safe harbor" for testamentary trusts created by a deceased spouse for the benefit of a surviving spouse. The assets of these trusts are treated as available to the Medicaid applicant only to the extent that the trustee has an obligation to pay for the applicant's support. If payments are solely at the trustee's discretion, they are considered unavailable.
Therefore, these testamentary trusts can provide an important mechanism for community spouses to leave funds for their surviving institutionalized husband or wife that can be used to pay for services that are not covered by Medicaid. These may include extra therapy, special equipment, evaluation by medical specialists or others, legal fees, visits by family members, or transfers to another nursing home if that became necessary. But remember that if you create a trust for yourself or your spouse during life (i.e., not a testamentary trust), the trust funds are considered available if the trustee has the ability to use them for you or your spouse.
Supplemental needs trusts
The Medicaid rules also have certain exceptions for transfers for the sole benefit of disabled people under age 65. Even after moving to a nursing home, if you have a child, other relative, or even a friend who is under age 65 and disabled, you can transfer assets into a trust for his or her benefit without incurring any period of ineligibility. If these trusts are properly structured, the funds in them will not be considered to belong to the beneficiary in determining his or her own Medicaid eligibility. The only drawback to supplemental needs trusts (also called "special needs trusts") is that after the disabled individual dies, the state must be reimbursed for any Medicaid funds spent on behalf of the disabled person.
To find out whether a trust is the right Medicaid planning strategy for you, talk to your elder law attorney.
