An Unusual Event

An unusual event…is being planned by the members of the Palo Verde Improvement Assocation.

It will be called the “Cow Pie Contest” and will take place sometime this month.

This means that the PVIA will enlist the help of a live cow, put the cow in a large pen and draw 100 spots. Those who wish to be in the contest will pay for the spot of their choice, and when the cow drops a pie on the correct spot, the person who holds the ticket that corresponds with the dropped pie, will get a large cash prize and other prizes.

It’s amazing how many different events can be planned to raise money – and this Unusual Event might just be the most unusual of all. We’ll keep you posted.

Suffering from Heartburn?

Do you suffer from chronic heartburn? Do you go through a bottle of Tums in a day?

You may have even seen your doctor who assures you that you are not having a heart attack, but have you ever been evaluated for Gluten Intolerance?

Gluten Intolerance is basically an allergic reaction to wheat and products that contain wheat. When you ingest wheat-containing foods your stomach goes on the rampage becoming inflamed and acidically raw and you go into a meltdown mode after consuming the offending product.

The only cure is to avoid products containing wheat.

As Gluten Intolerance is becoming a more and more recognized disorder, the food industry is beginning to develop an expanding range of food choices for this population.

The Palo Verde Library offers Gluten-Free Quick and Easy: 200+ Recipes for People with Food Sensitivites for those whose gut seems to always be on fire! The Palo Verde Library is located at the corner of Broadway and Chanslorway, across from Todd Park and the baseball fields at Chanslorway and Main Street.

Also, Albertsons has just released their own list of gluten-free products, a double-sided sheet naming the products that they carry. The library has a limited number of these flyers, or you can pick them up in Albertsons at the information desk, or download a copy from the Albertsons website.

We here at Palm Drive Apartments want to see you you healthy, happy and heartburn free. So if you suffer from chronic heartburn, or go through a bottle of Tums in a day, head on down the library and pick up the new recipe book!

Exercise Tips – It’s Never Too Late!

Exercise Tips – It really is NEVER too late to start!

Exercise is the best medicine, no matter how old you are or what condition you are facing.

If exercising is a challenge due to stiff joints or other ongoing conditions, consider low-impact activities that make the muscles that support your joints stronger. The key to making exercise safe and effective is to be creative, and ask for help to get started.

Swimming lets you actively work your muscles without putting too much stress on the joints. Plus, warm water can help your circulation. And if you take part in a class, there’s the added benefit of peer support.

Balance activities, such as yoga or tai chi, are also effective. Tai chi combines poses and movements that help strengthen your core muscles, which can lower your risk of falling.

Other low-impact activities include:

  • chair aerobics
  • exercising with elastic exercise bands and small weights
  • seated strength training

Don’t worry if it’s been awhile since you exercised. You can first, call your doctor, and then get started on these low impact activities right away and glean all the benefits for your health and your future. It’s really NEVER too late to start!
