The secret is out! We are thinking about starting a new website called Blind Romance!†† This would be a place to put information about you, your hobbies, interests and what you're looking for in a mate. Our new site will be state of the art and will introduce a geo-targeted love finder and free dating advice. We need your ideas and comments about this new venture. Please go to the end of this newsletter to see the exciting details!
Spring is slowly trying to dominate our landscape after a long struggle with old man winter and I am convinced, that in the end spring will prevail.
As trees and plants bud and blossom into a colorful panorama all around us, we become more buoyant and energetic and are ready to embrace the bright and sunny future that is unfolding before us.
Members and management alike are budding and blossoming with new and exciting ideas for Out-Of-Sight which will culminate into new events, games and projects to be enjoyed by all of our membership from around the world.† The more all of us invest our time and varied talents, the more Out-Of-Sight becomes the place to be where lifetime friendships are forged, support from caring and loving and loyal friends is freely given and valuable educational opportunities offered.
The newsletter staff has been diligently working this past month to put together another edition for all of us which will be both informative and interesting to our readers.

Debi, also known as Miss Behaving, has been actively involved in Out-Of-Sight since its beginning in January, 2008. She serves on the board as Secretary, Events Coordinator, and recently as the Editor of the siteís News & Views newsletter.† If that is not enough, she is also on the board of the following organizations:
Debi loves to workout and hike. In fact, she hiked the Grand Canyon from rim to rim in just one day! What an accomplishment.† Debi enjoys the ability to meet people from around the world on Out-Of-Sight. It is wonderful to be able to have such a gathering place to connect with other people, she said. It is like her extended family. She, and others, can share laughs, tears, stories, useful resources, and so much more. It is her hope that Out-Of-Sight will continue for many years, as a great meeting place for people to chat, play games, learn, and make long lasting friendships.

Anagrams are words made up of some or all of the letters within a word.† For example, look at the word TABLE.† By moving letters around, you can find TAB, ABLE, TALE, BELT, and so on.† Thatís easy enough, right?† Basically, thatís this game in a nut shell.† Two teams compete for the highest score.† One point per word, unless you find an anagram that contains all of the letters in the original word, such as, in our example, BLEAT!, which is worth 2 points.† This is known as a ďbonus wordí.† Team captains are chosen, but they donít do much.† At the start of each of the 4 rounds, Kathy gives 2 words to choose from.† The first team discusses which word they would like to work with.† They then are given 2 minutes to call out anagrams found in that word, one word per key up.† Prior to the game, Kathy wrote down 10 anagrams for each word.† The team gets a point for each word they call out that is on her list.† After the 2 minutes are up, she tells which words were correctly found, and the other team then is given 30 seconds to find the remaining anagrams on her list.† Then, team 2 gets 2 minutes to work with the other of the two original words for that round, the correct ones are revealed, and team 1 has 30 seconds to find those remaining.† In round 2, the other team chooses first, and the game progresses.† You do not have to be a good speller to be good at this game.† The longest words to work from are 7 letters in length.† Anagrams may be 2 or more letters in length, and abbreviations are allowed, such as BRB for Be Right Back, as long as you spell and say your anagram, which you must do on any word you find.† Proper names are not allowed, unless they also have a meaning other than, letís say, a name, such as Sue.† Sue is a womanís name, but it is OK to use, because it is also a legal action.† This is a challenging but fun game, trying to beat the clock and score more than the other team.† Sometimes, someone else will say the word you have in mind, and you have to come up with another, but thatís part of the fun and challenge of the game.† Join our host Kathy Mertz every Sunday evening at 9:15 PM eastern in the Game Zone, for this really neat game!

On or Off
By Charles Rivard
When you have finished using your desktop PC for the day, do you leave it running?† Or do you turn it off?† Why do you do what you do?† This has been a controversy for a long time.† Some people leave their machines on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.† They have their machine set to do any updating and virus scanning done overnight while they sleep.† Plus, the hard drive does not have to grind into action when they turn the machine on.† They feel that there is less wear and tear on the drive.
On the other hand, memory management used to be a big factor.† With the advent of Windows 7 and 8, this is not as big of an issue as it once was.† It is still a good idea to at least reboot your machine once a day to really restore memory usage.† Also, your fan and other computer components are using electricity when running.† If youíre not using the PC for the rest of the day, why not turn it off and save electricity.† Itís sort of like leaving the fridge open all the time to save wear and tear on the door hinges, plus you donít have to open the door to see what you want to eat.† Personally, Iíd rather close the door until I need to have it open.† Itís better for the food, or in this case, the parts of the PC.† And Iíd rather save electricity and money in my wallet.

Mobile Phone Tricks
By Kate Dolosa
Do you own one of the most popular gadgets nowadays called mobile phones?† I bet you do!† Well, here are some tricks you probably did not know your mobile phones can do.† There are a few things that can be done in times of emergencies, and your mobile phone can actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival.† Check out the things that you can do with it.
1. Emergency Number.
The Emergency Number worldwide for all Mobile Phones is 112. If you find yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile network and there is an emergency, dial 112 and your mobile will search any existing network in your area to establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked. This works on all phones worldwide and is free. It is the equivalent of 000.
2. Does your car have remote keyless entry?
This may come in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone: If you lock your keys in the car, and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home on their mobile phone from your cell phone. Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end, and your car will unlock. This saves someone from having to drive your keys to you. Distance is no object. You could be thousands of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the other remote for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk).†
Here is something you can do when your phone is almost dead: †press the keys *3370# (remember the asterisk).† Your mobile will restart in a special way with a new reserve and the instrument will show a 50 percent increase in battery life. This reserve will get recharged when you charge your mobile next time. This secret is in the fine print in most phone manuals.† Most people however skip this information without realizing.
4. How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone.
To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the following digits on your phone: * # 0 6 # Ensure you put an asterisk BEFORE the #06# sequence.† A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. If your phone ever gets stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset.† So even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless. You probably won't get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it cannot use or sell it either. If everybody would do this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.
This secret is also in the fine print of most mobile phone manuals.† It was created for the very purpose of trying to prevent phones from being stolen.
Although this last one does not have anything to do with mobile phones, it is very good information to remember just in case.†
5. ATM PIN Number Reversal.
If you should ever be forced by a robber to withdraw money from an ATM machine, you can notify the police by entering your PIN # in reverse. For example, if your pin number is 1234, then you would put in 4321. The ATM system recognizes that your PIN number is backwards from the ATM card you placed in the machine. The machine will still give you the money you requested, but unknown to the robber, the police will be immediately dispatched to the location. All ATMís carry this emergency sequencer by law.† This information was recently broadcast on by Crime Stoppers.† However, it is seldom used because people just do not know about it.

Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!
By Charles Rivard
This month, I thought I would talk about part of the experience of getting a dog guide. †Although schools might do it differently, I believe that all of them have the same goal in mind.† That goal is to satisfy both the human and the dog.† From this point on, keep in mind that I will tell you about my personal experiences at Guide Dogs for the Blind Incorporated.† I am working my fifth dog from there.† I have gone nowhere else, because I have gotten 5 excellent guides from there, and if it ainít broke, donít fix it!
One of the questions they ask you during your initial interview is, quote What are your preferences, if any?† Breed?† Male or female?† And why? End quote.† After you arrive at the school, before you get your dog, the instructors will ask you the same thing.† Be honest with your answers.† It will pay big dividends in the long run.† They also ask you what traits you want in a dog.† Do you like a puppyish dog that likes to play rough and energetically?, or do you want a more laid back and easy going dog?† They consider, and ask you about, your environment.† Do you work, and in what type of an office, or are you traveling a lot?† They consider your home environment.† Do you have other pets and what are they like?
A lot of people have a misconception that I would like to focus on for this month.† They think that you will get the dog you ask for every time.† This is not the case!† The dog you will get is what the school staff feel will be the best guide for you.† You may want a female black Lab that is an energetic player.† You may get a male yellow Lab that is laid back and easy going, because you may not be strong enough to handle a rambunctious beast!† The dog that you wanted may be a very fast walker and a hard puller that you could not work well with.† So guess what you will get?† Right.† Youíll get the best guide for you and your home surroundings.† While it is true that the staff will try, and try is the key word here, to match your desires as best as they can, they may have a better guide in mind for you.† This is especially true if you are going to be working with a dog guide for the first time.† If you have had previous guides, they can look through your past records and get a good feel for the dog you want or need from there, as well as your feedback to them at this time.† Your wants and needs will have changed over the years, and they will certainly consider those wants and needs.† In my case, seeing as I have worked with dogs since 1977, they can pretty much tell which dog will be right for me when I arrive at the school. You find out what comes next in next monthís article.
The World of the Sighted
By Joe Giovanelli
There was an article in last month's Out-Of-Sight newsletter, in which the writer stated the importance of blind friends in her life.† Although I do not discount this, I have to say that the world in which I live is a sighted person's world.
I can make such a statement based on experience.† From my earliest days in a school for the blind I noticed that many blind kids were more childish than they should be.† They would utter odd sounds and make statements just for the sounds they made.† Some blind people call those things blindisms.† These things often persist into adulthood.
At the time I was to graduate from high school, I found that many colleges were reluctant to accept me because of my blindness.
Later I discovered that most employment possibilities were closed to me for that same reason.† Fortunately I'm pretty good at problem solving.† I reasoned that if I could not find employment, I'd start my own business.
I ended up doing two basic things:† I became a tech writer for a leading magazine which was devoted to high fidelity sound reproduction.† I was the most popular writer there and did this for more than 40 years, until the magazine closed its doors.
The second thing I did was to start my own recording business.† Over the many years I did this work, I recorded everything from weddings to funerals; music to dramas.† It was wonderful that people were willing to pay me for what I would have done for free!
Along the way I made many friends, mostly sighted ones.† I certainly do have friends who are blind, and am glad to have them.† I do say that the preponderance of my friends are sighted because I spent my life with sighted people.† There were those who wanted me to join organizations which are dedicated to serving the blind.† I have not joined any of these.† I know that quite a few of them do very well in serving and fostering the interests of the blind.
I hope that I do not appear snobbish.† For me, well, it is just plain reality.† If this was so, then I would not be writing an article for this newsletter.† Come to think of it, this fact contradicts in a small way my saying that I have not joined any organization related to blindness.† Oh well, I guess that tells you that I am not perfect, right?
I was asked to contribute something to the newsletter each month, and I am happy to do so.† My background is in fitness and health, and I would like to begin by giving you an introduction about who I am. I have always been interested in fitness, health, keeping in shape, and watching what I eat.† Not to an extreme, but to ensure I stay in good health. I have been involved a lot in sports, power lifting, wrestling, and track and field over the years, and though I have RP, my vision has been good enough to participate in these activities with little difficulty.† For eight years, I worked in a health club.† The last two years of that employment, I ran the menís program, and set people up with personalized exercise and nutrition programs.† During the past 19 years, I have worked full time as a Reflexologist and continue to motivate my clients to make healthy choices every day. With this background in mind, I offer my experience and knowledge to you, and hopefully, this will motivate you to live your best and healthiest life!††
I must say at the outset, that if you have a medical condition or take prescribed medicines, you may want to consult with your physician.† However, the information I am offering is quite sensible and not extreme in nature.††
The health of all of us is our responsibility, and it relies on the choices we make every day.† For the next several months, I will be providing detailed information about hydration, exercise, nutrition, sleep, attitude, energy, stress and other relevant subjects. My suggestion to you, is that you make one healthy choice at a time. If you go overboard and attempt to change your lifestyle all at once, it can become discouraging.† Choose one of the following challenges, to get a jump start on your road to good health!† Add another challenge when you feel comfortable.††††
Try to ensure that you are drinking about half of your body weight in ounces of water per day. If you are taking medication which restricts your fluid intake, try to make those fluids water as well. Soda, coffee, and alcohol may be fluids, but water is much better for you.† If you have trouble drinking this much water, try beginning with adding one glass of water extra each day or two, until you reach the desired amount of ounces.† Now, I do not expect someone who weighs over 200 pounds to be drinking at least 100 ounces of water per day, at least not right in the beginning. But, try to drink at least 8 to 10, 8 ounce glasses per day, by the end of the 4 week time period.†††
I do not recall anyone ever saying that they would hate to give up broccoli or cauliflower, have you?† Often times, what we hate to give up the most, causes the most problems. It is the carbohydrates, sugars, soda, ice cream, chocolate, processed foods, snacks, etc. that are the foods we love the most and hate to give up.† Try to cut back on the foods you know are not good for you, and see the results at the end of the 4 weeks.
I think the three reasons I hear the most for an individual not exercising are, no energy, no time, and no equipment.† All of us have busy lives, but if we wait to have the energy, time, and equipment, we will most likely not follow through, and exercising will most likely not happen. Ease into the routine of exercise. If you do not have the luxury of a gym membership, think outside of the box.† Create some convenient floor space.† Shut the door and close the blinds.† Tune in the radio to your favorite music, and start moving!† It does not matter if you even know how to dance.† Just move!† Start with stretching.† Then, add your arms, then your legs.† Walk in place, or dance around.† Just keep moving.† Start with one or two songs, and keep increasing the length of time as you progress.† Eventually, you will work your way up to being able to move and exercise for 30 minutes per day. Having said all of this, I do not want you to do so much exercise, that you cannot even walk the next day. Be smart.† Be safe.† Ease into your exercise routine and be consistent. Your health is your responsibility, so take on one of these challenges today, and start making a difference in your life, one healthy choice at a time!

Little Beaver Can Opener
By Roger Khouri
I wanted to let you all know about a different type of can opener available on the market that avoids the sharp edges of the lid. Whenever you have ever opened a can, such as tuna or beans, whether you have used an electric or conventional can opener, you have always had to be careful not to cut yourself because the lid was very sharp. A few months ago, I purchased the Little Beaver can opener by Starfrit, and I have never looked back. It feels the same, and you use it in a similar manner to the conventional can opener that you are used to, but there is one major difference. It cuts along the sides of the can, just under the top lid.† So, you totally never have to handle a sharp lid ever again. It costs about the same as a conventional can opener so, for the added safety, I would suggest that you try to find one. I am not sure if this brand is available in your area but simply go to your favorite department store and ask them for a can opener that cuts along the sides of the can, instead of the typical can opener that cuts on the top around the lid. Believe it or not, I have had friends who had to get stitches from cutting themselves on the lid. So, for folks who are sighted, they too, face that risk, and for those who are blind, the chances are higher for cutting yourself on the lid.† So, consider checking out this new type of can opener!

1 stick (1/4 lb.) butter, softened
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 cup Confectionerís sugar (powdered sugar)
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 1/2 cups milk
2 small packages instant vanilla or milk chocolate pudding
8 ounces Cool Whip
1 20 ounce package original Oreos
Crush Oreos by placing them in a plastic Ziploc bag, (About 20 at a time), and roll a can over the bag.† Then, set aside in a separate bowl.† Mix softened butter and cream cheese with a wire whisk. Add Confectionerís sugar and vanilla and set mixture aside.† In larger, separate bowl, mix milk and pudding.† Stir until thickened.† Fold in Cool Whip.† Then, fold in butter mixture.† In glass dessert dish, or gardening pot, (see below), layer, starting with mixture, then add the cookies and continuing until everything is gone, (ending with crushed cookies on top).† Refrigerate overnight.
** To make this extra special, place dessert in an actual gardening pot.† You can purchase†††† either a plastic or pretty ceramic pot just to use for this recipe. Gummy worms can be added before the last layer of cookie crumbs, and extend out onto the top layer, but not necessary!† You can also put an artificial flower in the middle of the pot for added effect.† It really looks like dirt, especially when it is in a gardening container.† It is a big hit when brought to the picnics and pot lucks!† But, most importantly, it is really yummy!† Enjoy!† Best Dishes!

Dear Betty Blunt,
I am visually impaired, and I have met someone
special online who is also visually impaired. People have asked me if it
was love at first sight, and I am not sure how to respond. Sight didn't
have anything to do with us meeting and getting serious with one another, yet,
love at first sight seems enchanting and romantic. Give me something to
tell people that would be equally lovy dovy.
Dear Hopeless Romantic,
Now, I have been around the block a few times, so I can testify that love at first sight is just something that sighted people say, because what they really mean is: quote I need an excuse to justify my quick romance. Quote.† Not to fret, I have a simple response for you to describe your latest relationship in a way that others will understand in this day and age.† Just say it was love at first chat, wink, ping, email, like, call, post, tweet and text end quote.† Let Ďem stew on that for a while!
FYI:† There is no such thing as a free lunch or free advice.† So, please send your check or money order to me, in care of the yahoos that are censoring my valuable advice here!

Thank you to everyone who submitted answers to last monthís brain teasers.† Many of you were very close, but only three of you were right on the money!† A big congratulations goes out to Brenda Green, Lee Smiley, and Ashish Singla for correctly answering both brain teasers!† Suzy Barnes and Roger Khouri had a slam dunk with question number 2!† Congratulations to all!
Here are the March brain teasers and their answers:
In our house, we have a clock that chimes the number of hours.† For example, 8 times at 8 o clock, 10 times at 10 o clock, and so on.† It chimes once every quarter hour.† The other day, I came into the house. A few minutes later, the clock chimed once.† 15 minutes later, it chimed once. 15 minutes later, it chimed once. It chimed once 15 minutes later, once again, 15 minutes later, once 15 minutes later, once 15 minutes later. What time was it when I first heard the clock chime?
You have 12 black socks and 12 white socks mixed up in a drawer. You're up very early and it is too dark to tell them apart. What's the smallest number of socks you need to take out (blindly) to be sure of having a matching pair?
Answer:† 3 socks.† If the first sock is black, the second one could be black, in which case you have a matching pair. If the second sock is white, the third sock will be either black and match the first sock, or white and match the second sock.
Now, for our super duper April brain teasers!† Can you solve these?† Letís see who has their thinking cap on!
2.† You are the bus driver. At your first stop, you pick up 29 people. On your second stop, 18 of those 29 people get off, and at the same time 10 new passengers arrive. At your next stop, 3 of those 10 passengers get off, and 13 new passengers come on. On your fourth stop 4 of the remaining 10 passengers get off, 6 of those new 13 passengers get off as well, then 17 new passengers get on. What is the color of the bus driver's eyes?

Someone who is extremely pleased or happy has long been described as being, quote on Cloud 9 end quote."† The phrase is thought to come from the classification system used by the old United States Weather Bureau, which divided clouds into nine types.† Cloud 9 was the dramatic Cumulonimbus, towering into the sky, and so to be on cloud 9 meant to feel or be very high.
