EMAILER MESSAGES -JANUARY 15, 2022

I’M BACK!
.
It’s been a difficult couple of days dealing with my website (GoDaddy) and WordPress.  Yesterday, I \spent about an hour with someone from GoDaddy and he left me saying, wait 48 hours and your website will be back.
.
I gave it some thought and called back in 15 minutes and spoke with another person.  Would you believe in 2 minutes he fixed everything?   It proves that first, don’t try to save money when things were working for 20 years and second, there will always be someone who knows more than someone else.
.
I know a few residents wrote me or spoke to me about putting things on my website, so feel free to contact me again.

A message from your Fire Commissioners, Fire District 3: (EXPIRES 2/19/22)

The fire election is going to be held Saturday, February 19, 2022, from 2:00 PM to 9:00 PM. Due to COVID, the only location to vote in person will be at our fire station located at 16 Centre Drive. It is between Forsgate Drive and Applegarth Road. We will be electing one Fire Commissioner, voting to pass our 2022 budget, which remains around the 2% cap, and authorization to approve the purchase of a fire pumper to replace a 1991 reserve pumper. It is old and the pump is failing. The cost of a new fire pumper is around $550,000. It will be paid off over a few years.
.
If you received a ballot last year, you will receive one by mail. For residents who would like support us, Applications By Mail will be available at the clubhouse vestibule. To be eligible to vote, you must be a registered voter residing here. The application must be
returned to the Middlesex County Clerk, no postage required, as soon as possible because of the mailing delays.

Thank you.

Commissioners Joel Kaplan, Gerald Kaplan

REGENCY’S FIRST SHOW “IF YOU COULD SEE ME NOW” + OTHER EVENTS (EXPIRES 1/16/22)

I didn’t receive any comments dealing with not putting these two slideshows on my website.  These events took place at the beginning of Regency just having Section 1 and maybe some of Section 2.

It certainly brings back memories.  At that time, I was THE EMAILER, THE PHOTOGRAPHER AND THE SLIDESHOW MAKER.  The first party we had, The Post’s and the Grossman’s planned.  We had tents in the street going from my home to the Grossman’s home and let me just say, the temperature was over 100.  It was the first time I took 5+ showers in one day.  You will also view on, the first link, other events during these early days.

The next link will deal with our first show called IF YOU CAN SEE ME NOW.  It was just FANTASTIC!

Let me again say that it was difficult for me to view it because so many of our dear friends and neighbors have passed away.  If this is not what you want to view, then don’t click on the links.  For me personally, it was remembering the good times I had with all the residents that passed away.

The files are LARGE so it will take time to download.  Once it is downloaded click on download and the first slide shows up.  Just click on the slide.

SLIDESHOW 1

NOTE: AFTER IN DOWNLOADS YOU MIGHT HAVE TO WAIT 30 SECONDS TO SEE DOWNLOAD AND THEN CLICK ON IT

I  will make more slideshows so that those who can’t go to events (like Greta and I0 will see how wonderful it is to be at events.  I accept both JPG and MP3 or MP4 files.  So, PLEASE send me pictures and videos.

WOULD ANYONE LIKE TO SEE OPERA? OR TAKE A LIFELONG LEARNING COURSE ON OPERA TAUGHT BY A VERY SCHOLARLY INSTRUCTOR (EXPIRES 1/16/22)
.
I am an opera lover, and I imagine there are others at Regency who love it, too. Obviously, tickets to the Metropolitan Opera in NYC cost a fortune, and especially now with the pandemic, most of us are not venturing to Lincoln Center from NJ to see a performance at the Met. So I settle on going to  HDLIVE Metropolitan Opera productions streaming into movie theaters.  I have been going for at least 15 years. Tickets are a mere $26, and you see better than you would if you were in the Lincoln Center venue. I recently saw “Cinderella” at the Regal Cinema on Rt 1 in No Brunswick – 25 minutes away. It was a marvelous performance done especially for young audiences in English. All performances have subtitles.
.
The next one is Rigoletto on 1/29 at 1pm.  Let me know if you would like to join me and if you are vaccinated and willing to wear a mast, I would love to have company! The large cinema holds about 200 people, and there were only 10 people in the audience each time I have gone – so distancing is not a problem. You can call me on my cell number 845 706-3355. 
.
FYI there is an 8 session course on opera given virtually on zoom offered by the Evergreen Forum. You can register at the princetonsenior.org site for Princeton Senior Resource Center – registration starts on 1/25/22. The course begins on Feb 28 and runs for 8 weeks, 2 hours/week, until April 18 on Mondays from 1-3PM at a reasonable fee of $90.  Check the above URL for further information.

REGENCY RESIDENTS HAVE A WEBSITE FOR THEIR COOKING RECIPES (EXPIRES 1/24/22)
.
 For the last few years, I have saved my favorite recipes on a blog site that I created. Currently, I have over 100 recipes. The reason for creating the site was to make it easy to find recipes that my wife and I liked and were not hard to make. I am always adding new recipes after I make and like them.

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.
