Happy April We start April with the hope that everyone is healthy and safe. The uncertainty regarding the Corona Virus certainly has everyone concerned. Many local events have been cancelled and the NFMP Meet and Greet donut day in March was also cancelled as a precaution. Thanks to everyone who worked hard on planning the event. The Bookmobile has suspended service until further notice due to the Coronavirus, but at the time the NFMP magazine is going to press, the Mountainview Library remains open. The Bookmobile is expected to resume service and donut day will be rescheduled once things have returned to normal, which we all hope will be soon!

Book Club News NFMP Book Club will be on Wednesday, April 8th at Space 20 (Please note the change in location). The book will be Move your Stuff. Change Your Life: How to Use Feng Shui to Get Love, Money, Respect, and Happiness by Karen Rauch Carter. All are welcome to join our book club discussion.

For the Benefit of our Newest Residents Here’s a Reprint of the late Bob Edward’s Walking Map around New Frontier

 “Events” page is omitted this month


April Fools’ Humor …With Some Wit on the Side Our manager at the restaurant where I worked was a much beloved, jovial man. But there was one subject you didn’t dare discuss in front of him — his height. Or, should I say, his lack of it. One day, he stormed through the door and announced angrily, “Someone just picked my pocket!” Most of my fellow waitresses and I were speechless, except for the one who blurted out, “How could anyone stoop so low?” Take a Number Our chain of travel agencies was small but growing. As office manager, I often got complaints from staff members who deplored the demise of our family-oriented operation and the impending arrival of Big Brother. Then a computer memo from the home office informed us that we all had been assigned employee numbers. We were to use them instead of names in correspondence or telephone communication with the company. “This is the last straw!” said an exasperated worker. “We’ve finally been reduced to a number!” commented another. One employee, however, read on. Imagine our delight when she discovered, at the end of the memo, this message: “In our book, you’re all Number One. Happy April Fools’ Day!”

Van's Kaleidoscope

Charles Alexander Eastman (extracted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

Charles Alexander Eastman born Hakadah and later named Ohíye S’a; February 19, 1858 – January 8, 1939) was a Santee Dakota physician educated at Boston University, writer, national lecturer, and reformer. In the early 20th century, he was "one of the most prolific authors and speakers on Sioux ethnohistory and American Indian affairs." Eastman was of Santee Dakota, English and French ancestry. After working as a physician on reservations in South Dakota, he became increasingly active in politics and issues on Native American rights, he worked to improve the lives of youths, and founded thirty-two Native American chapters of the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA). He also helped found the Boy Scouts of America. He is considered the first Native American author to write American history from the Native American point of view. Eastman was named Hakadah at his birth in Minnesota; his name meant "pitiful last" in Dakota. Eastman was so named because his mother died following his birth. He was the last of five children of Wakantakawin, a mixed-race woman also known as Winona (meaning "FirstBorn Daughter" in the Dakota language) or Mary Nancy Eastman. She and Eastman's father, a Santee Dakota named Wak-anhdi Ota (Many Lightnings), lived on a Santee Dakota reservation near Redwood Falls, Minnesota. Winona was the only child of Seth Eastman, a U.S. Army officer and illustrator, and Wakháŋ Inážiŋ Wiŋ (Stands Sacred), who married at Fort Snelling in 1830. This post later developed as Minneapolis. Stands Sacred was the fifteen-year-old daughter of Cloud Man, a Santee Dakota chief of French and Mdewakanton descent. Seth Eastman was reassigned from Fort Snelling in 1832, soon after the birth of Winona. Winona was later called Wakantakawin. In the Dakota tradition of naming to mark life passages, Hakadah was later named Ohíye S'a (Dakota: "always wins"). He had three older brothers (John, David, and James) and an older sister Mary. During the Dakota War of 1862, Ohíye S'a was separated from his father Wakanhdi Ota and siblings, and they were thought to have died. His maternal grandmother Stands Sacred (Wakháŋ Inážiŋ Wiŋ) and her family took the boy with them as they fled from the warfare into North Dakota and Manitoba, Canada. Fifteen years later Ohíyesa was reunited with his father and oldest brother John in South Dakota. The father had converted to Christianity, after which he took the name of Jacob Eastman. John also converted and took the surname Eastman. The Eastman family established a homestead in Dakota Territory. When Ohiye S’a accepted Christianity, he took the name Charles Alexander Eastman. His father strongly supported his sons getting an education in European-American style schools. Eastman and his older brother John attended mission and preparatory schools, and


college. Eastman first attended Beloit College and Knox colleges; he graduated from Dartmouth College in 1887. He went on to medical school at Boston University, where he graduated in 1889 and was among the first Native Americans to be certified as a Europeanstyle doctor. His older brother became a minister. Rev. John (Maȟpiyawaku Kida) Eastman was a Presbyterian missionary at the Santee Dakota settlement of Flandreau, South Dakota. Charles Eastman worked as an agency physician for the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) Indian Health Service on the Pine Ridge Reservation and later at the Crow Creek Reservation, both in South Dakota. He cared for Indians after the Wounded Knee massacre. He later established a private medical practice after being forced out of his position, but was not able to make it succeed. As they were struggling financially, his European-American wife, Elaine Goodale Eastman, encouraged him to write some of the stories of his childhood. At her suggestion (and with her editing help), he published the first two in 1893 and 1894 in St. Nicholas Magazine. It had earlier published poetry of hers. These stories were collected in his first book. Between 1894–98, Eastman established 32 Indian groups of the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA), and established leadership programs and outdoor youth camps. In 1899, he helped recruit students for the Carlisle Indian Industrial School in Pennsylvania, which had been established as the first Indian boarding school run by the federal government. In 1891, Eastman married the poet and Indian welfare activist Elaine Goodale, who was serving as Superintendent of Indian Education for the Two Dakotas. She had first taught at Hampton Institute, which then had about 100 Native American students, in addition to African Americans, and at an Indian day school in South Dakota. She supported expanding day schools on reservations for education, rather than sending Native American children away from their families to boarding schools. Charles Eastman built a cabin on the eastern shore of Lake Huron, where he spent his later-year summers. He wintered in Detroit, Michigan with his only son Charles, Jr., also called Ohiye S’a. On January 8, 1939 the senior Eastman died from a heart attack in Detroit at age eighty. His interment was at Evergreen Cemetery. Elaine Goodale Eastman was close to two daughters and families who lived in Massachusetts. Another lived in New Hampshire. Goodale Eastman died in 1953 and was buried in Northampton.

Jacquie’s Healthy Inspirations

How to Stay Motivated

Whether you have set New Year’s resolutions, or simply have goals that you want to achieve, it can be difficult to stay motivated to complete them. First, you need to make sure that the goals that you have established are ones that you really want to achieve. It shouldn’t be something that you have to do, or should do. Goals are things that you connect with deeply. They help define your values and your purpose. Maybe they are things like, you want to be kinder to your spouse. Or, you want to make healthier decisions. Whatever your goals may be, here are some tips to help inspire you to keep at it. Focus on your goals everyday – Everyday write down the change you want, and why you want it. Don’t just read it over every day. It will become more ingrained in you if you actually write it out (at least until the goal becomes an established habit). Which leads me to the next point… Establish Habits – Create routines that you do every time before you start your activity. For instance, if you want to go to the gym in the morning, then the night before set out your gym clothes to put on first thing in the morning. After you get dressed, always fill up your water bottle, eat a banana and pack a post work-out snack. This way, you are more likely to go to the gym. And, simply preparing will help you feel more mentally alert to actually complete your activity.


Set Reminders - Setting a reminder on your smartphone can help keep you on track, whether it’s scheduling a time to read 10 pages a day, write a letter, drink a glass of water or clean your house. Get Inspired – If you need more inspiration, perhaps you can watch a YouTube video of someone doing the thing that you need to get done. Watching someone do the thing that you need to accomplish can help motivate you to complete your task. You can also hang a picture of a word that inspires you, a quote or a photo. For instance, if you are a runner, hanging a photo of yourself having crossed a finish line at a race can be motivating to get out there and get your miles in. Even seeing the bib from a past race may foster the motivation to run more. Accountability - To stay motivated you can ask a friend to be your accountability partner. You could call, text, email or meet with them once a week to check in with how you are doing. You could journal at the end of the day, answering questions like, “How well did I do today?” “Could I have done it better?” Or, simply rate yourself on a scale of 1-10 for the day. Whatever you do, it’s important to track and measure your goals. I hope that one of these ideas resonates with you, and helps you to stay motivated to complete your goals.


Is your memory… slipping? (Dementia, Part 2) Things that can raise your chances of “DEMENTIA”  AGE. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia with about a third of people 85 and older showing signs of this disease. But dementia is not a normal part of getting older and factors other than age can increase the risk of developing dementia.  VASCULAR DISEASE. Plaque build-up in arteries can slow the blood flow to your brain and put you at risk for vascular dementia and stroke. The things that cause vascular disease can lead to dementia (see below).  DIABETES. Doctors aren’t sure exactly why people with diabetes get dementia more often. But they do know that people with diabetes are more likely to develop vascular disease. People with diabetes are able to slow brain decline by keeping their diabetes under control with medicine, exercise, and a healthy diet.  HIGH CHOLESTEROL. High levels are linked to vascular disease which boosts your risk of vascular dementia. High cholesterol in midlife may also be a risk factor for developing Alzheimer’s disease later in life.  HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE. Even without other health problems, having high blood pressure makes you more likely to get vascular dementia and Alzheimer’s because high blood pressure harms the blood vessels in your brain and increases the risk for stroke. Managing your blood pressure with diet and exercise—and medication, if needed—may slow or prevent this from happening.  DEPRESSION. People with depression are more likely to develop dementia. Scientists aren’t yet sure that it is a cause of dementia or simply an early symptom of dementia.  HEAD INJURY. One mild traumatic brain injury may not make you more likely to get dementia later in life. But more severe or repeated head injuries could double or quadruple your chances, even years after the first time.


 OBESITY. Having a lot of extra weight in middle age could put you at risk of dementia. It also increases the odds of getting heart disease and diabetes, which are linked to dementia.  GENES. They may matter more in certain types of dementia. But dementia doesn’t always run in families and having genes associated with Alzheimer’s disease doesn’t always mean you’ll get it.  POOR SLEEP. Many people have an occasional bad night of sleep. But if it happens often or if you wake up a lot or don’t sleep enough—you could be more likely to get dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease.  SMOKING. It’s bad for your blood vessels, and it makes you more likely to have a stroke or develop vascular dementia.

What helps….  DIET. The traditional Mediterranean-style diet that’s good for your heart is also good for your brain. It features whole grains, fruits, vegetables-especially leafy greens-, fish, poultry, nuts, berries, olive oil, and other healthy fats like avocado, and keeps red meat to a minimum. In one study those who strictly adhered to this type of diet had a 53% reduction in the risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease. A ketogenic diet, in which there are periods of fasting, may also reduce the risk of dementia.  EXERCISE. People who are physically active are more likely to stay mentally sharp and less likely to get Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia. Exercise lowers blood glucose levels and can result in weight loss, reducing the risk of dementia. If a person is already in the early stages of dementia, being active can help them think more clearly and remember things. Aerobic exercise shows definite benefits, but you don’t have to go to extremes. Just 30 minutes or more of brisk walking, dancing, gardening, or something similar several days per week can help.  COGNITIVE STIMULATION. Cognitive stimulation such as reading, solving puzzles, and computer-based games can help you keep your mind sharp. Social interaction with others is also key to the prevention of dementia. from WebMD


Yummy Broccoli By Jacquie We all know that broccoli is good for us to eat, so here’s a delicious way to serve it! And, broccoli doesn’t just have to be a side dish at dinner. You can eat it for breakfast, lunch or as a snack. Ingredients     

1 big bunch of broccoli, cut up (stems too) Toasted pecans, roughly chopped Grated cheese Olive oil Salt & pepper

Directions 1. Steam cut up broccoli and stems until tender, but not mushy. 2. On a dry cookie sheet, toast pecans in oven at 325 degrees for 5 minutes. Watch carefully as they will burn quickly once they are almost done. Cool, and then roughly chop. 3. Put tenderly steamed broccoli in a bowl or on a plate and cut up into bite sized pieces. 4. Add a big handful of grated cheese to the top of the broccoli. (Use whatever type of cheese you prefer. I like grated sharp cheddar cheese). 5. Pour a generous amount of extra virgin olive oil on top of the broccoli/cheese mixture along with a sprinkling of salt and pepper. Stir gently. 6. Add the chopped roasted pecans on top. Enjoy!


RIDDLES – exercise for the Brain 1.

Without fingers, I point; without arms, I strike; without feet, I run. What am I?

2. A crook steals $100 from a cash register. The crook returns an hour later with the same $100 and buys $70 in items, receiving $30 in change. How much does the merchant lose? 3. When I am 2 yrs. old my brother was half my age. Now I am 100 yrs. old. How old is my brother? 4. It is not alive; it cannot see. Yet it has an eye and it can make you gasp or cry, if you are not careful. What might it be? 5. What has hundreds or thousands of ears, but can’t hear a thing? 6. Up and down the stairs it goes without moving any toes. It is found upstairs, downstairs, even in the hall; alas it can’t move at all. What is it? 7. Which is heavier, a pound of lead or a pound of silver? 8. Tamara donated $1 million to a charity. After she donated all that money, she was a millionaire. Can you explain this? 9. It falls from great heights, but it never stays, and sometimes people wish it would go away. What is it? 10. Round like an apple and deeper than a cup, yet all the King’s horses can’t pull it up. What is it? ?@?@?@?@?@?@?@?@?@?@?@?@?@?@?@?@?

ANSWERS: 1. a clock 2. $100. The shop loses $70 worth of goods plus $30 in cash. It is as if the merchant gave the goods out for free as well as the $30. 3. 50 yrs. old 4. A needle 5. a corn field, as it is full of ears of corn 6. A carpet 7. Neither; they both weigh 1 pound 8.

Jokes for April

Down Under Droll

Alzheimer’s Joke So this old man goes to the doctor and the doctor says, “You’re test results came back and I’m afraid I have some bad news. You have Cancer and you have Alzheimer’s”. The old man says, “That ain’t so bad, at least I don’t have Cancer!” Senile Joke The nice thing about being senile is you can hide your own Easter eggs.

While I was working at a delicatessen in Sydney, Australia, a woman overheard my accent and asked if I was American. “Lovely!” she exclaimed when I told her that I was. “I’ve been looking for one of your lot. My son is living in the States with his American wife, and she sent me a recipe that calls for half-andhalf. Could you tell me, luv, half of wot and half of wot?”
