  5. CBT BANK MAKES GENEROUS DONATION TO CCAAA Judith Mitchell and Kathy Collins from CBT Bank, a division of Riverview Bank, presented the Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging, Inc., and Mature Resources Foundation with a check for $1000.00. Accepting the funds was Terry Khoury, Coordinator of Mission Advancement and Public Relations, from the CCAAA. The donation was the first generous contribution for the Village of Hope. Located in LeContes Mills, The Village of Hope will be an inclusive community where older Pennsylvanians, particularly those with dementia and other cognitive impairments, can live independently and maintain their quality of life and age with dignity and joy. It is designed to serve the people (of all ages) and serve as a resource for the greater community. Unlike institutional models of care, the Village of Hope works to connect, rather than isolate people and bring together people of different abilities and different cognitive, physical, and creative abilities in the belief that the whole can be greater than the sum of its parts. This is a cutting-edge approach to home and community-based services, not a licensed health care facility. With an emphasis on reciprocity, everyone living, working, and studying within the Village will be taught methods for communicating with and collaborating with and supporting people living with dementia. Housing options will include single occupancy, double and a small percentage of single-family homes. Although priority will be for eligible persons from Clearfield County, individuals from other counties will also be eligible. The Village of Hope will become a replicable model that can reduce expenditures from public programs while improving the health and well-being of people living with dementia, their families, and the surrounding communities. It can change the way we organize and deliver supportive services in the context of dementia in Clearfield County, and across the country. For more information on the Village of Hope or how to support the CCAAA, please visit the Village of Hope website, www.ourvillageofhope.com Programs and services of the Agency are funded in part by the Pennsylvania Department of Aging, the Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging, Inc., Mature Resources Foundation, and local and consumer contributions. ###### Pictured from left: Kathy Collins, Terry Khoury and Judith Mitchell

    Pansies by the Flat?

    Does anyone know where I could find Pansies by the Flat? There could be 30-50 or so and they are usually not quite flowering when bought that way.

    Air condition on in the winter

    Take a thermometer with you so you're sure it's the air temperature that's cold and not just you. I agree that it's too early for air conditioning, but so many people are out with no coats, shorts and flip flops. Some people must live in an igloo, and others must live in an oven. Who knows. What is your house temperature normally? I can't swim at the Y any more because 83-84 degree water is just too cold for me and makes me ache all over, but other older people don't mind it at all. They said that temperature if to keep the swim team cool.

    Vasectomy Cakes Are A Hilarious Trend

  22. Are your spices really old? 3 signs it's time to throw them away Keep your food flavorful and fresh by routinely cleaning out any old spices. Antenna / Getty Images stock March 26, 2018, 12:46 PM EDT / Updated March 22, 2019, 12:50 PM EDT / Source: TODAY By Erica Chayes Wida When’s the last time that spice rack was thoroughly cleaned? A week ago? A year ago? Possibly never? If you're not really sure, then there's no time like right now to start. Get your spring cleaning routine on the right track by taking the time to carefully check each spice bottle, jar or shaker and toss any of those spices that have been sitting around a little too long. Some spices are known for providing powerful health boosts (not to mention, they also add great flavor to foods), so it's important to keep them fresh. Simply Organic But how should you start spring spice cleaning? Let's face it. Spices are one of those things that we just tend to collect over time. Since they don't really emit any odors as they start to get stale, it's hard to know exactly when a spice has truly passed its peak. This week, spice company McCormick took to Facebook once again to help customers find out if their bottles of dried parsley, oregano or onion powders were really, really old. "When's the last time you took a peek into your spice cabinet? You should see 'Hunt Valley, MD' on McCormick labels. If you see 'Baltimore, MD,' your spice is at least 25 years old!" McCormick posted. It's since been shared over 1,600 times. The Maryland-based company, which has been selling spices since 1889, used to manufacture all of its products in Baltimore, where the company was founded. But it has since moved its production center to Hunt Valley, Maryland, a suburb of the city. Another way to quickly tell if that McCormick spice is past its prime? If it's in a metal tin — dump it. With the exception of black pepper, the brand hasn't sold spices in tins for 25 years. But of course many home cooks stock their cabinets with spices from different brands. Chef James Briscione, the director of culinary research at the Institute of Culinary Education, shared his kitchen tips with TODAY Food on the best ways to keep your spice rack in top shape. 1. Just bought a new spice? Write the month and year on the label. This is a simple trick Briscione and his staff do every time a new spice is opened. This makes it much easier to keep track of how fresh something really is. Some spices in particular have a tendency to outlive others. "Nutmeg is one," Briscione told TODAY. "You use it in small quantities and usually only during fall and winter. Five years can go by easily." If you're constantly opening a spice, that means it's being exposed to air more frequently and you'll likely have to replace it sooner. Assorted spices in wooden spoons on a table.Getty Images 2. Don't just look at 'Sell By' dates. Take the cap off and smell it. "I think we're becoming more and more aware that expiration and use-by dates can be used to the business' advantage and have an abundance of safety in mind," Briscione said. Since some expiration dates can be arbitrary or confusing, it's OK to use your best judgement by using your senses: sight, smell and touch. The spice itself should be bright and fragrant. If it doesn't have any smell, it likely isn't strong enough to flavor your food. If stored in a cool, dark place, a spice should be OK to use as long as it holds its vibrant color, too. However, a spice stored in an area that gets a lot of light will show discoloration much more quickly and lose its flavoring power.

Pre-ground spices might be more convenient but whole spices last the longest because the essential oils are kept inside and that's where the majority of the flavor is. According to Briscione, those whole spices can last three to four years, which will ultimately save you money. Once spices are ground, however, there is more surface area and they will quickly lose their "chemical compounds" that make them such great flavoring agents. In general, ground spices may last one to two years maximum, while dried herbs can last up to three years. SEEVIDEO ; https://www.today.com/food/are-your-spices-old-here-s-how-tell-if-you-t125844
  23. Vasectomy cakes are a hilarious trend — and they're becoming more popular Bakers at Signature Desserts from Tennessee created a witty cake to celebrate a milestone moment and it's part of a growing trend. signaturedessertsnashville/Instagram March 21, 2019, 3:15 PM EDT / Source: TODAY By Julia Curley Couples across the country are finding a surprisingly sweet way to celebrate a life-changing procedure. Nate and Jillian Clingman, a couple with a knack for baking from Nashville, Tennessee, recently proved that there's truly a cake for every occasion with a very special order. The duo behind the bakery Signature Desserts created a “Happy Vasectomy” cake for one local mother — and the creative treat has quickly gone viral. In early March, a fun-loving mom messaged Signature Desserts on Facebook. She wrote, “I have a strange cake request,” Nate recalled to TODAY Food. “Once we worked out a few details regarding pickup and whatnot, she shared that it was a vasectomy cake,” the baker, who is a father-of-two, said. “I’m not sure if she expected me to take it seriously. I started laughing and told her, ‘That would be awesome.’” The Clingmans bake around five to 10 cakes each weekend, managing orders between their day jobs. Nate handles the design and decorating work, while Jillian takes care of the actual baking. Together, Nate and his client came up with a creative confection to make any happy dad — and plenty of people on social media — laugh. Instead of going with an obvious medical motif, Nate's design included two lemons and the phrase: “100% juice, no seeds.” “He thought it was hilarious,” Nate told TODAY of the spouse’s response. The baker waited until the local dad had received his sweet gift so it would be a real surprise before posting the photo to Signature Desserts’ Instagram. Since posting the photo, the Clingmans have been blown away by the response. “We’ve gotten people from all over asking us to ship [cakes] out to them,” Nate said. “The funny thing is a lot of guys are saying, ‘I never got a cake for my vasectomy, I just got an ice pack!’ So we’ve connected with some of them to suggest having their wives do a post-vasectomy cake.” Related Parents This woman baked her husband a vasectomy cake and it's hilarious Unfortunately for those considering a vasectomy out of state, Signature Desserts currently sits under Tennessee’s “cottage bakery laws,” which means it can’t ship products. But Nate and Jillian have high hopes for turning their creative outlet into a bigger bakery. “We do everything out of our home for now,” Nate said. “But we have aspirations for a storefront in the future, when we are finally able to make it our main priority and can quit our jobs to make it happen.” Despite the viral reaction to Signature Desserts’ vasectomy cake, it’s certainly not the first of its kind. A Newport, Michigan, baker created a “Snip Snip Hooray” cake last May: And Christine Yommer, a baker from Georgia, whipped up her own “aww nuts” cake back in April 2017: Kimberly Hemperly, a stay-at-home mom from West Richland, Washington, celebrated her husband’s vasectomy in December 2017 with a full-out party. Hemperly had quite the spread, complete with her husband’s favorite snacks like Milk Duds, sunflower seeds, beef jerky, jelly beans and meatballs. “The party was a surprise for my husband,” Hemperly told TODAY. “He came home from work and thought it was hilarious.” "We are thrilled to say we will NOT be adding any more tiny humans to our family," Hemperly wrote in her festive Facebook post. She has a five-year-old daughter and one-year-old son with her husband Jason Hemperly.Courtesy of Kimberly D. Hemperly Of course, the event needed a milestone cake to match Hemperly’s festive spirit. She recruited a local friend, Emily Johns, to create the comical confection. “The cake was made by a local friend of mine who luckily knew me and my humor,” the mom-of-two said. “She had no problem at all making it for us.” And now that spring is in full swing, bakers may be busier than usual whipping up some creative vasectomy-themed cakes. In previous years, urologists across the country have reported an uptick in vasectomy appointments during March Madness. “Maybe there’s, like, as many as 10 to 12 who have their vasectomies at the beginning of the tournament, so that they can have some recovery time sitting around watching TV and putting ice packs on their surgery site,” Dr. Rob Golden, a urologist based in Spokane, Washington, recently told The Spokesman-Review. He's even offering a promotion this year: Not to be outdone, chicken chain Buffalo Wild Wings has even rolled out a special chair in two locations with a cooling feature to celebrate “Vas Madness.” The Clingmans are in full support of the vasectomy cake trend, too. “Most of the mom/dad cakes we’ve done have been the typical gender reveals, pretty Mother’s Day- or masculine Father’s Day-type cakes,” Nate said. “That’s what made [the vasectomy cake] so fun. It was different than our normally requested cakes. We look forward to doing more cakes like this in the future, celebrating every milestone in life.” SEE VIDEOS OF CAKES ; https://www.today.com/food/vasectomy-cakes-are-real-trend-here-s-why-they-re-t150756

    Did u speak to them first? I doubt they will just pay your bills worth $80 due to a 10 min bus ride because you were cold. Bus drivers won't automatically assume u have health issues just because you are a senior citizen. Next time tell him you are cold and ask that the air at least be turned down. I'm sure he or she will do it.

    Doesn't matter a hill of beans to me. Just makes the person doing it feel more important because it looks like someone actually agrees with him I guess. 😃
