Homes for resale: #9 and #130 Please welcome Joyce Hoving (#62) to our Sunset Estates community. We hope she’ll be nicely settled into her new home by the time you read this. HAPPY EASTER TO ALL! ***

HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE !!! From Kay Weeks ~ All I need to know I learned from the Easter Bunny! ~ Don't put all your eggs in one basket. ~ Everyone needs a friend who is all ears. ~ There's no such thing as too much candy. ~ All work and no play can make you a basket case. ~ A cute tail attracts a lot of attention. ~ Everyone is entitled to a bad hare day. ~ Let happy thoughts multiply like rabbits. ~ Some body parts should be floppy. ~ Keep your paws off of other people's jelly beans. ~ Good things come in small, sugar-coated packages. ~ The grass is always greener in someone else's basket. ~ To show your true colors, you have to come out of the shell. ~ The best things in life are still sweet and gooey. MAY THE JOY OF THE SEASON FILL YOUR HEART.

ON THE SIDE OF CAUTION‌ SUNSET ESTATES

By Marty Brewer

After much deliberation, our Sunset Estates board of directors made the decision to cancel all large-group clubhouse events until further notice. The news about the coronavirus is a growing concern in numerous countries and when it strikes close to home, the wisdom of limiting the chance of exposure is a natural precaution. Our community has several small groups who meet on a regular basis: card players, coffee gatherings, Bingo, T’ai Chi/QiGong, etc. As of mid-March, when this magazine went to press, they are expected to continue. Canceling will be on an individual groupdetermined basis.

SANITIZER RECIPE From Marty Brewer The Ingredients: 2/3 Cup Rubbing Alcohol (at least 60% alcohol) 1 Cup Aloe Vera Gel. Mixing Bowl. Spoon. Funnel. Mini travel-size bottles. Optional: Add a few drops of lavender, vanilla, or another essential oil for scent.

A special picture from a special occasion: A 90th birthday gathering for Meghan Stanley (#94).

The Grapevine By Marty Brewer

SUNSET ESTATES

We are never truly prepared to hear of the loss of a dear friend, regardless of a long health battle. Darla Freeman (#97) was a Sunset Estates resident for many, many years and left our world last month. She will be so missed! Our condolences and sympathies are with LaVonne and their families. We were happy to learn that Sandra Morinaud (#43) and June Bridges (#106) are finally home again. Both ladies suffered fractures from falls and their hospital stays were followed by some lengthy rehab time. Prayers, please, for Renate Betanco (#127) who was transported to Kaiser Hospital last month with a severe leg infection. We hope she is mobile once again and getting better every day. Healing wishes and good thoughts to all in our community who have had or are continuing to have health problems. We don’t always hear about them individually but the spirit of caring is with them. Good to know: Vicki Gilfix (#115) is a member of The Library and Resource Center at El Camino Hospital—a worthwhile source for senior information. Vicki has also been appointed as a 4-year member of the Mountain View Senior Advisory Board. The board meets the 3rd Wednesday of every month and meetings are open to the public for input and questions. It is not unusual to hear the pervasive sounds of leaf-blowing machines as neighbors as well as park maintenance crews “tidy up” our outside areas. However, sometimes there are other sources of loud sounds and we don’t know how long they will continue. If a new home is going in, we expect some of this noise to follow. But if there is to be some individual home construction, it would be nice to be alerted; plans to be absent during part of the activity could be made as a respite from the sounds.

How can one know if infected by Corona virus... Quick self-test.. From Joy Cardyn as posted on Facebook Stanford hospital board.-- This is their feedback for now on Coronavirus: The new Coronavirus may not show sign of infection for many days. How can one know if he/she is infected? By the time they have fever and/or cough and go to the hospital, the lung is usually 50% Fibrosis and it's too late. Taiwan experts provide a simple self-check that we can do every morning. Take a deep breath and hold your breath for more than 10 seconds. If you complete it successfully without coughing, without discomfort, stiffness or tightness, etc., it proves there is no Fibrosis in the lungs, basically indicates no infection. In critical time, please self-check every morning in an environment with clean air. Everyone should ensure your mouth & throat are moist, never dry. Take a few sips of water every 15 minutes at least. Why? Even if the virus gets into your mouth, drinking water or other liquids will wash them down through your throat and into the stomach. Once there, your stomach acid will kill all the virus. If you don't drink enough water more regularly, the virus can enter your windpipe and into the lungs. That's very dangerous. 1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold. 2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose. 3.This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26-27 degrees. It hates the sun. 4. If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne. 5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours. So, if you come into contact with any metal surface, wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap. 6. On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. normal laundry detergent will kill it.

7. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice. 8.Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes--but a lot can happen during that time--you can rub your eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on. 9.You should also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice. 10. Can't emphasize enough--drink plenty of water! THE SYMPTOMS: 1. It will first infect the throat, so you'll have a sore throat lasting 3-4 days. 2. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes about 5-6 days further. 3. With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing. 4. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you're drowning. It's imperative you then seek immediate attention. SPREAD THE WORD - PLEASE SHARE

DO YOU EVER WONDER‌ From Kay Weeks (From Woman’s world magazine, February, 2020) How is it possible that we can remember every word of a song from 1985, but we can't remember why we came into the kitchen?

DMV SAMPLE TEST QUIZ From Ray Peterson

1. When parking uphill on a two-way street with no curb, your front wheels should be: A. Turned to the left (toward the street). B. Turned to the right (away from the street. C. Parallel with the pavement. 2. You are involved in a traffic collision; you are required to complete and submit a written (sr1) to the DMV: A. Only if you or the other driver is injured. B. If there is property damage of $750 or more or if there are injuries. C. Only if you are at fault. See answers on page 13. D. Only if you are not at fault. *** ARE YOU MISSING OUT ON SOME FUN? At 6:30 on the second and fourth Thursday of every month, a Bingo-playing group assembles for a fun evening in the clubhouse. This is a casual group of people who enjoy the spirit of the games, the low-key prizes, the refreshment assortment, and the general friendliness of being together. And if any of us has a birthday in a given month, there is cake! Audrey Cantley (#126) is our hostess, caller, and assembler/donator of the multicolored prize bags. Bingo is a game that can be played with just a few participants (family and/or friends) or hundreds (church, club, or community.) It is the type of game where you can see how close you are to becoming a winner and is totally a game of chance as you tab the one or two card(s) you have chosen @ $1.00 each. No particular skill is required to play so a first timer is as likely to win a game—or the final blackout money--as an “old timer” (if you’ll excuse the expression!) So, if you haven’t yet joined in on this special kind of fun, y'all come!!

A Plea to Pet Parents of Sunset Estates By Kay Weeks

As Deja and I take our frequent walks around Sunset, I am noticing a lot of dog “leavings” along the way. I know that most of our residents are very diligent about picking up after their pets. However, it is obvious that some have not gotten the message. As a resident of Sunset, one of our perks is to be able to walk our dogs within the mobile home park. It wasn’t always so. One had to take the dogs out of the park in order to walk them. Many mobile home parks still have this rule. So, if you are aware of anyone abusing this privilege, please say something or offer them a poop pick-up bag. I always carry extras in my pocket. I would hate to lose my privilege to walk Deja due to the fact that others are being careless. If you are unfamiliar with other rules pertaining to pets, please refer to the Sunset Mobile Home Park Rules and Regulations which you were given when you first moved in. Here are a few of the rules. Please see Section 6 for the entire list of pet rules. •

Resident is responsible for the immediate pick up and disposal of any pet droppings.

Pets are to be kept on a leash and not allowed to roam freely.

You are required to register your pet with management when you move in. If a pet dies, the pet may not be replaced without prior approval from management. (When Diogi died and I then got Deja, I registered her with Lenora).

No guest pets. Guests are not permitted to bring pets into the park. I often see someone I do not know who is walking a dog. I am not sure if they are a new resident, a visitor, or just someone wandering in and taking a walk.

Please do not let our privileges be revoked. Our dogs enjoy meeting and greeting one another on walks and I enjoy meeting and greeting the pet parents too!

Thank you. 9

More Tidbits from Tootsie! (Gilfix) Hi, it’s me (Tootsie) wishing you Happy New Year and a Happy Spring! I hope everyone enjoyed the New Year’s parties…..or called it a night early. I snuggled with my Mom and Dad and had a great time! I thought I would bring you up-to-date on a few things. Remember when I told you about my friend, Monroe? Notice the picture above? That’s my friend, Monroe, sitting next to me. He’s still a work in progress and really doing better. “Couth” is still an issue, but consider his size! Walking with Monroe is running for me…..and ladies don’t run….we stroll! I got a surprise not long ago that I’d like to tell you about. I’m really in great shape, but noticed a little bump on my shoulder. My Mom took me to see Dr. Park to check it out and it seemed the bump is a problem. Lot’s of discussion, multiple opinions, and the upshot is, we’ll watch & wait. So, as a reminder to all my friends, check those bumps... sooner rather than later! On a lighter note, there seems to be a procession of people either taking stuff out of our house or bringing stuff in! My Mom and Dad seem pretty happy with all the activity so it must be a good thing. The stuff coming in is really shiny, almost like a mirror, and being the charmer that I am….I do love mirrors! Hugs and kisses to all my friends. Tootsie ANSWERS TO DMV QUIZ 1…B 2…B
