Resident Dick says, "The amenities ... provide the matrix for a pretty active social and activity menu, and the best part is the people who are our neighbors have become wonderful friends. We have all experienced some degree of dis- location in moving here - from former homes, from jobs, from family and friends - the commu- nity provides much support as a surrogate extended family if you want/need that."

My daughter says I decorate for every season except Ground- hog Day. I can't fred a stuffed groundhog. Thank you Karen for shar- ing whatever strategy helps lift your spirits. Avoiding the news on television is also helpful. Do you know "The Dog Whisper- er" comes on at 7 a.m.? I drink my coffee and watch Gracie eat Ray's hand for breakfast. Based on several conversa- tions, it appears that many people have tables without chairs tucked properly under- neath as I mentioned in last week's column. One person who shall remain nameless wrote to me about the enormity of crumbs around her partner's recliner and wanted to know my solution, torrow my puppy, please, In my book, "Dog Training in lO Minutes" by Carol Lea Benjamin, on page 47 it says: "If your dog scarfs up chicken bones in the street, 'Leave it' is off tnsta00 We Measure We Install the command you need.
