A HARD DECISION BY THE EMAILER

 

Rummaging through my files and CD’s I found something that I did when we had our first show by residents here at Regency.  In my personal opinion, it was the BEST show.  It took place around 2003 and the costumes were MAGNIFICENT.  If you click on this link you will see the cover of the CD I made and two of the performers (Carol Kortmansky and Hollis Borak).  My thanks again to the Men’s Club for allowing me to purchase enough CD’s for the entire community at that time.

REGENCY FIRST SHOW

 

In those days, I was, besides being an Emailer, I was also the Photographer and the SLIDESHOW MAKER.  I did a slideshow of our play, along with slideshows from many of our events in 2003/4.  Once this COVID is over, maybe we can then get back to enjoying all the fun we had in our Clubhouse during the early days.

 

Now here is the problem I was facing.  Many of the residents you will see on the two slideshows have passed away.  I am very sensitive even when it comes to Birthday’s and Anniversary’s in removing the information for those who are no longer with us.  I have help doing this because I don’t know everyone.

 

The suggestions, I received, was to include a DISCLAIMER dealing with the issue.  So here is what the DISCLAIMER will be:

 

DISCLAIMER:  The link you will click on will take you to a site that will have two slideshows.  Each slideshow will have some residents who have passed away.  You will make the decision whether or not you want to view the slideshow.

 

Now let me explain about the link and site I found.  In the early 2000’s EXE files were very popular so I made the slideshows into an EXE file.  Today, EXE files are antiquated and very rarely used.  My website doesn’t even accept EXE files so I had to find a site that does (BUBLUP).  So I uploaded these files and because of the size it took time.  When you click on the link below it will take time to open the file(s).  It will tell you when it is done and just double click on it.  It will take you  to a site which will ask you to RUN the file.  It is safe so you can do this.  It will then take you to BUBLUP and you will see two files.  Click on the one that says RON and two files will open up.  First start by clicking on the 2nd file because it has many different functions that were held and you can get some idea of what Regency was all about in those days.  Click on the title and the slideshow should begin. When done, click on the first file which will be slides of our first show and who did what. 

 

On a personal note, there were times that tears came to me eyes and then there were times that certainly brought back some good memories.  Remember, what you will be viewing took place about 18 years ago. 

HERE IS THE LINK  REMEMBER ONCE YOU CLICK ON THE FILE IT WILL TAKE ABOUT 25 SECONDS BEFORE IT’S READY FOR YOU TO CLICK ON IT AGAIN TO OPEN THE FILE.

URGENT – NEW ANTI PHISHING MESSAGE – SENT BY THE IRS

NOTE:  THIS HAS ALREADY HAPPENED TO A REGENCY RESIDENT

Those of you who read my monthly TECH TRENDS articles in the Regency Reporter should be familiar with my ongoing URGING of folks to be aware of attempts always being made by criminals attempting to penetrate our computer systems. I was just made aware of this message published by the IRS regarding a new ‘impersonation’ phishing scam. PLEASE PAY ATTENTION!

.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is warning of an ongoing IRS-impersonation scam.

.

The suspect emails display the IRS logo and use various subject lines such as “Tax Refund Payment” or “Recalculation of your tax refund payment.” These messages ask readers to click a link and submit a form to claim their refund. The phishing website that these emails link to requests taxpayers provide their personal information, social security number, tax information and electronic filing PIN.

.

As with all phishing scams, people who receive this scam email

should not click on the link in the email.

.

Key Items to Note: 

  • NEVER EVER click on links in emails if you are not 100% certain of the sender’s identity.
  • Always be skeptical of any email or text message demanding immediate action to verify your information.

STAY SAFE!

Don Haback

TO HEAR AUTHOR, 

ALAN SIDRANSKY

SPEAK ABOUT HIS LATEST BOOK

“FORGIVING STEPHEN REDMOND”

.

Forgiving Stephen Redmond is the final chapter of the Forgiving series, which began with Forgiving Maximo Rothman and Forgiving Mariela Camacho, both of which were re-released as well. While a series, the three books can be read as stand-alones.   Set in Washington Heights and the Dominican Republic, Forgiving Stephen Redmond (as well as its sister volumes) is a murder mystery:

On a ‘dog-day afternoon in August 2008, Detectives Anatoly Kurchenko and Pete Gonzalvez are sent to investigate a mysterious, mummy-like body found inside a wall in an old wood-frame house under demolition. The body opens a cold case from the mid-1960s. The investigation leads back to a case they solved three years earlier, the murder of an aging Holocaust survivor and former resident of the Jewish refugee settlement of Sosua, in the Dominican Republic, Max Redmond, also know as Maximo Rothman.

Of particular interest to Jewish readers is the examination of the trans-generational experience of trauma suffered by children of Holocaust survivors. The story also examines similar experiences among the children of Dominican TV victims of Trujillo’s reign of terror.

You can read more about the book on Alan Sidransky’s web site:

WHO TO CONTACT WHEN YOU WANT TO JOIN A CLUB?
.

Yes, these are very difficult times especially since many, if not all, the clubs we have at Regency are in hibernation.  

I have added many new residents who do want to get involved with some of these clubs..  I have no clue who, at Regency, should be contacted if someone wants to join a club.  

Please send me your name, telephone number and email address so that I could post the information on my website so new residents can possibly join your club.

EMAIL AUTHORIZATION FORM

During “normal” times the HOA would send me this form to let me know that new residents want to be added to my email list.  However during these “crazy” times this form is not being used.  

I need your help and your new neighbor might want to also receive my emails.  So when you walk outside of your home, look to the left, look to the right, and if you have a new neighbor, give him/her my email address and ask him/her to send me their email address to add to the 1800 contacts I already have.  My email address is

rongreta@gmail.com

Thanks

Ron
