**AT THE END OF THE RECIPE IS A LINK TO A DOWNLOADABLE PDF FILE TO SAVE OR PRINT AND ADD TO YOUR COLLECTION.

Easy Blackberry Raspberry Jam (A Quick Taste of Summer)

Ingredients

1 ¾ of each Raspberries and blackberries rinsed and dried

2 ½ granulated sugar

5 tbsp real lemon juice (Natural pectin)

Instructions

Put the raspberries, blackberries, sugar and lemon juice into a medium to large sauce pan.

Placing pan over a low-medium heat, stirring occasionally, until all the sugar crystals have dissolved.

Raise the temperature slightly and bring the mixture to a rolling boil and continue to boil for 7 minutes.

Remove from heat, put a few teaspoons in a chilled saucer then place the saucer in fridge for about a minute (This is a tester)

You will know that your jam is done, when tester comes out of the fridge and has a gel like texture when your finger or spoon runs over it.  If the jam isn’t ready then continue boiling for another 2 minutes at a time and re-test until ready (Average time is about 9 to 11 minutes total boiling).

Ladle or pour the jam in sterilized jars then sealing with lids immediately – makes 2 (450 ml) jars

Once cooled store in refrigerator unopened should last up to 6 months in the fridge. Open jars will last about 30 to 45 days.

This jam is delicious treat for toast, ice cream, or an added flavour to your yogourt.

Cardio and Stretch 6 with Ros

Another great video from Canadian Centre for Activity and Aging  to help us stay active at home.

“CCAA certified senior fitness instructor, Ros leads participants through a Latin-inspired, 30-minute cardiorespiratory workout that includes warm-up, higher-intensity, low-impact cardio, cool-down and stretching.”

Best Practices
Ensure that the exercise space in your home is a safe environment for movement, for example, your space is free of tripping hazards such as cords and scatter rugs.
Wear proper athletic footwear and comfortable clothing that allows you to move around freely.
Exercise at a moderate- to vigorous-intensity level. You should feel like the exercise is challenging but not so difficult that you can’t talk.
Aim for 10 to 30 minutes of cardiorespiratory exercise per day. Current recommendations state that older adults should perform 150 minutes of moderate-intensity cardiorespiratory exercise per week.
Any amount of cardiorespiratory activity is beneficial for heart health. However, when you exercise for longer periods and more consistently the functional benefits are more likely to be maintained or improved.

Government Incentives and Covid News for Seniors~~ July 3 Update

Government Supplement for Seniors

Since last week there have not been many changes but we want to take this time to remind you to keep your eye on your bank accounts or your mailbox as the Government Covid 19 subsidy for seniors is to start arriving this coming week July 6th

If in June you received OAS (Old Age Security) you should receive $300 also those that received GIS (Guaranteed Income Supplement) will receive an additional $200. This amount is not taxable, and will not have to be reported on your 2020 income tax. No matter how much you usually receive for OAS and/or GIS, you will receive this full amount. It is the Government’s way to help us out especially those who are considered low income.

What is new?

Chatham-Kent has been fortunate with keeping our covid numbers low as well as our long-term care facilities remained free from this virus. Many of the long terms facilities open up to visitors while taking precautions.  They will continue to maintain social distancing.  Each facility has protocols they have to follow and will ask their visitors to participate in as well some may be a bit more regimented in check visitors.  This is to help keep everyone safe.

We are still waiting on the government in implement stage 3.   Dr. David Colby, Medical Officer of Health for Chatham-Kent does not know what stage 3 will involve but it may include “reopening most remaining workplaces and community spaces while carefully and gradually lifting restrictions.”

Dr Colby has a few concerns as our numbers has been low and as we move forward into stage 3 some may become more relax and not take safety procedures as seriously anymore. He would like to remind people when we move into the next stage to continue to observe proper health and safety guidelines which include social distancing, wearing a mask when in close quarters in public places and continue to wash your hands regularly especially when you are out in the public.

While masks are not mandatory in our areas they are highly recommended by Dr Colby to be used in public areas especially where social distancing may be hard to maintain.

What does this mean for us?

As our province slowly progresses forward, we can move forward too and enjoy the summer months.  The only thing is we must remain diligent in maintaining our health and safety procedures.  We can take time to go for a walk or a drive to enjoy the scenery around us. We can visit friends and family from a distance if they are not part of our Social Bubbles.  We can visit our local Framer’s Market and Vegetable Stands to enjoy the wonderful local produce.

Just a few reminders, if you feel someone is too close don’t hesitate to ask them to take a few steps back.  If you still feel uncomfortable going out then stay home and enjoy the beauty in your own yard, it is safe to go out in your yard or on your balcony.

Until this is over, our website will continue to be our virtual centre helping you enjoy your days with fun activities, interesting information and exercises regiments.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out and message us.

Please feel free to leave comment and let us know how you did.

Ready…. Set… Go…..  Have Fun.

Questions

  1. In which desert was there no rain for 10 years?
  2. Which name are the Sandwich Islands better known as?
  3. What does your body use to get rid of salt?

Story:

As the sun was setting on the coastal shores of Hawaii a young girl name Carrie was riding a horse on the beach.  She came across a starfish and felt sorry that it was not able to make it back to the ocean. 

As she dismounted she spoke to her horse. “Just wait here Christine; I have to save this wonderful creature from its misery.”  She picked up the little creature and tossed it into the water. 

Mounting back on her horse she said to herself “This beach must have felt like the Sahara to him”

Unbeknownst to Carrie a young girl named Jenny was watching in the distance. She was amazed at the kindness this woman shown to the small creature. Inspired by what she saw Jenny headed to the ocean where the tide was receding and found 20 starfish stranded on the beach picking them up she placed them back into the ocean. She did not even care that sand was getting into her Nike Shoes. 

Suddenly her Apple phone alarm rang telling here it was almost 10 and she had to get back to work. 

“Oh Sugar, I wish I could save more of you, but I have to get back to work” she spoke gently to the last one she placed in the water.

As she left the shoreline she could see Pyramid Rock in the distance, yet she was unaware  a young man, treading water to relax strained muscles was watching her. Overhearing her speaking to the starfish, he emerges from the water and starts picking up starfish and placing them back in the ocean.

It is true, sometime our good deeds may not be rewarded but they do create a ripple effect in other’s lives.

Happy Canada Day

We just want to take this time to wish you all a Happy Canada Day. In these unusually times, we must find unique ways to celebrate Canada Birthday together, to help remind us that we will get through this. Well we found two different virtual celebrations as well as a link from the Government of Canada that will help you celebrate all day. We may not be able to celebrate in large groups in person but we can still celebrate together in different ways and with the rest of Canada.

O CANADA (Virtual Choir)

Let’s start the day off right with a tribute to our wonderful Country. Here is a virtual Choir sing O Canada.

Breathing Space

Some day we just need a quick moment to relax a little bit and for some especially now with the sequestering being lifted and we start to move forward it can be a bit overwhelming. This video from the Chronic Pain Service, Toronto Rehab, Rumsey Centre, part of UHN, is a 4 minute meditation to help create that Breathing Space we may need. Whether it is for first thing in the morning to help motivate you; last thing at night to help relax you or anywhere in between to help reduce anxiety, we always need a moment to take a bit of Breathing Space.

Badder Bus portion of Shen Yun trip

In response to recent inquiries: On April 14/20 WAAC directors informed that we had contacted Badder bus and talked with the owner. The bus line is shut down and they have laid off all their (400) employees. They cannot issue refunds until they get back up and running as their accounting department was part of the mass layoff. At present there is no time line for them reopening. We have not heard any updates. WAAC reimbursed trip participant for the Shen Yun portion of cost and await and hope for this other refund to the centre when the situation normalizes. When a refund from the bus company is received, then WAAC can look forward to reimbursing the Badder Bus portion of the Shen Yun trip costs.

As we move forward there is still apprehensiveness of what tomorrow will bring. Canada Day is only a few days away, reminding us of the history of our strength to endure. One way has been through humour so now is the time to take a moment for a little bit of humour.

Story:

A young dog was on his way to the heart of a city called Artichoke.  Along the road he ran into an unusually colour Canary reading a book called “Earth Description by Shelly Seagull” He had 500 questions as to why this bluish purple bird would read a book about the earth when he could fly around the world; over land and sea. Just as he was about to ask his first question a cat appeared in the distance.

“Is that The Essex Queen?” he thought to himself as all questions for the Canary evaporated from his mind.  Queen was his best friend in school and he had not seen her in 14 or 15 years.   He ran towards her and when she spotted him her back arched for only a minute untill she realized it was Jack Duke of The Wavertree.

“Jack Duke what are you doing in this part of the woods?” She purred with delight.

“I am on my way to Artichoke to see if I can purchase some lettuce, strawberries and tomatoes to create a wonderful Canada Day celebration salad.” He excitedly replied as his tail wagged nonstop.  “Do you have any plans today we must catch up it been so long?”

Queen affectionately weaved herself between his legs. She was so happy to see her dear friend as she exclaimed, “None.”

“Awesome, let’s go and have some lunch at The Cutty Sark. The milk is on me.”

As they walk down the path together heading to the heart of the city, the little canary decide that it was better to see the world around him then to read about it in a book. Spreading his wings he took flight letting the book fall to the ground, where a little white mouse notice it.

Government Incentives and Covid News for Seniors~ June 25th

government incentives

As Ontario and Chatham Kent move forward in reopening our economy, we are see more and more restaurants opening and creating patio to help us resemble some normality.

Ontario’s State of Emergency has been extended from June 30th to July 15th. They are hoping this will be the last extension needed.

“What Does State Of Emergency Means If We Are Opening Up Business And The Economy?”

By the government standards it means.

Providing “Ontario with the additional time, flexibility, and the necessary tools to safely and gradually allow more places to reopen, while continuing to support frontline health care providers in the fight against COVID-19.”

In other words, it allows the government to continue to assess the situation for the next couple of week; make sure that all necessary legislation and arrangements are made to keep everyone safe; and to make sure that all our frontline workers have the essential support to help them do their job and keep them safe as well.

Should the state of emergency expires before the province has made sure all essential emergency orders are made, amended or re-enacted, then they will no long be able to establish them or amend them.

However the existing one may remain as written. It is important that the Ontario Government makes sure that the necessary orders are in place so that they can maintain our safety after it expires and while they continue to bring normalcy to the province.

Social Distancing and Bubbles

We are still under the same large gathering orders as was mentioned last week.  Which means you can have a social bubble of 10 people.  Groups of no more than 10 can gather with social distancing with the exception of Weddings and Funerals.  (Click here for last week’s segment)

What Is Happening In Our Community?

All festivals and events have been cancelled or postponed for now. WAMBO has been cancelled as well as the Canada Day Festival.  The Dragon Boats were postpone till October 3, 2020

On a good note the Downtown BIA Farmers Market will continue with the next one on July 4th They are making sure that everyone stays safe and social distancing is done.

If you enjoyed borrowing books from the Library the Wallaceburg Library has started Curbside Services on Wednesday, 2:00 to 6:00 pm and Saturday, 1:00 to 5:00 pm.  You can place your books on hold through their website or by calling 519.354.2940.  They will contact you when your order is ready to set up an appointment with you.   However they are allowing only one appointment a week with up to 20 items a week.

What Is Happening In Other Communities?

The rest of the province is now moving into stage 2 of opening up their economy except for Windsor-Essex.  This means more restaurant, hair salons and even some tourist attractions are now opening up everywhere but Windsor-Essex.

The Government has given the municipalities the decision of which attractions are best to open up in their regions. Some areas may open up their beaches while other will not want to take the risk.

How Does This Affect Me?

It is still very apprehensive times for us.  Many of us are getting cabin fever especially with summer upon us now.  If we take precautions when we are out and keep our social distancing, while only having close contact with those in our social bubbles, we can enjoy a bit of normalcy.  We can take pleasure in going for walks, visiting a fruit stand and grabbing an ice cream from one of our many drive thru.   Just remember to always have a mask with you and use it when out in public  also have some hand sanitizer or a baggy filled with warm soapy paper towels with you.  Don’t forget to take advantage of the hand sanitizers and gloves that stores will be offering you when you enter

If you are over 70 and/or have a compromised immune system make sure you follow all the guidelines for social distancing.  Should someone come to close to you do not hesitate to tell them to “Please Step Back.”

If you still feel uncomfortable to venture out into public, do not feel pressured to do so. There are many service willing to continue to help those that want to self isolate (click here for Stay Home Stay Safe Options) as well as family, friends and neighbours.  The important thing we need to keep safe is our peace of mind.

Ask a Tech Geek June 24th

Welcome to today’s Ask a Tech Geek. We will continue to follow up on our Facebook and Social Media questions.

Today’s Question:

Lately I have been hearing about Facebook accounts being hacked, compromised or Pirated what does this mean and how can I secure my account?

This is a very good question and there are many false perceptions of what happen to someone’s account.  Many people use the term “Facebook account was hacked” but in reality it is rare for an account to be hacked. “Hacked” means gain unauthorized access to the account. With all the security protocols that Facebook has it is hard for someone to actually hack someone’s Facebook file.

Many called it hacked and Facebook uses that term as well, unfortunately the majority of the time a person’s account is actually compromised. This means that someone has unwittingly given a third party access to their account.  This usually happens when someone allows a third party app permission to post on their wall for example the results of quizzes, games, websites or any other app that seems fun or informative.

While many of the third party apps are reputable, there are quite a few that are not.  When they ask for permission to post the results to your page, they hide the other permissions requests which you then give access to, like your friends list, messenger, etc. Once they gain access they can send group messages to people, post unwanted information on your wall and have full access to your account.  This is when they can become pirates and take over your account on you.

Just like a ship that in boarded by pirates, a Facebook user’s account becomes overtaken and they are locked out.  If this happens to you click here for Facebook to help you regain control of your account.

Did you know that when you allow a third party to post something on your wall, for example “What animal are you?” Or “We can tell you your personality from what colours you choose”, you are allowing them permissions to access your Facebook account.

Did you know that you have control over your apps and websites?  Did you know you can control who can see what games you are playing? Did you know that you have control to remove any app you use?  

Control Your Apps Permissions And How To Remove Them.

There are two versions of Facebook at this moment so how to set permissions depends on if you are using the classic version or the new version.

Classic Facebook

  1. Log into Facebook and click the Down Arrow in the top right of Facebook.
  2. Click Settings.
  3. Click Apps and Websites from the list on the left.
  4. Click the name of the app you’d like to update. You can also click Search Apps and Websites in the top right to find a specific app or website.
  5. From here, you can update the information you’re sharing with the app or who the app is sharing with or remove it completely
  6. Click Save

New Facebook

  1. Click the Down Arrow in the top right.
  2. Select Settings & Privacy > Settings.
  3. Click Apps and Websites from the list on the left.
  4. Click the name of the app you’d like to update. You can also click Search Apps and Websites in the top right to find a specific app or website.
  5. From here, you can update the information you’re sharing with the app, who the app is sharing with or remove it completely
  6. Click Save.

Bulk Remove/Delete of Apps

If you find you have more apps and websites then you realized and do not want them, you can do a bulk delete Remove/Delete by clicking the box beside each app you like to remove then clicking the removed button above the list on the right.

It is always a good idea to keep an eye on what apps you have given permission to access your Facebook and what areas of your account you have allowed them access.  This Geek routinely checks hers every two months. 

Thanks to our website visitor for asking this question. Next week is Canada Day so I will not be doing a segment but will be back on July 8 th.

 I want to take this time to wish you all a HAPPY CANADA DAY 🍁

If you have a question you would like to have answered. Here are three ways you can ask.
