Karen’s Commentary: An article in the November 2019 issue of AARP Bulletin says that many people have an inflated sense of security about the social platform Nextdoor because it’s supposed to be limited to your neighbors. But there have been reports of criminals posting fake car sales or contractors for hire – even pretending to be nannies. They want your information so they can steal your money. So don’t assume you can trust an online stranger, even one who claims a local connection. Use neighborhood apps to keep up with events, not as a marketplace. This sounds like good advice to me. Nextdoor is great, but always be cautious when it comes to matters involving money.
A group of Wonder Valleyites gathers at The Palms every Sunday morning to discuss the week’s happenings in our area. You can usually find them having breakfast in the diningroom in back. Everyone from “newbies” to “old-timers” are welcome to join in the conversation!
Handy Hint: Nuts stay fresh for a year or longer when stored in the freezer. To eat, just thaw at room temperature for about 20 minutes, then munch away!
