Four worms and a lesson to be learned!







A minister decided that a visual demonstration would add
emphasis to his Sunday sermon.

Four worms were placed into four separate jars.

The first worm was put into a container of alcohol.

The second worm was put into a container of cigarette smoke.

The third worm was put into a container of chocolate syrup.

The fourth worm was put into a container of good clean soil.

At the conclusion of the sermon, the Minister reported the
following results:

The first worm in alcohol . . Dead.

The second worm in cigarette smoke . . . Dead.

Third worm in chocolate syrup . . . . Dead.

Fourth worm in good clean soil . . .Alive

So the Minister asked the congregation,

"What did you learn from this demonstration?"

Maxine was sitting in the back quickly raised her hand and said

. . "As long as you drink, smoke and eat chocolate, you won't
have worms!"







That pretty much ended the service!

CC&Rs for BDSA

Here is what
BDCA is
responsible for:

Bermuda Dunes
Community Association
(BDCA) is responsible for
most problems relating to
property owner's home
and lot, dogs,
landscaping, pool
draining, trash cans,
fountains and landscaping
at the main gate.

The Architectural
Committee reports to the
Community Board

Dues are $100 per year
and are payable in
January in lump sum

Architectural Committee
responsibilities

A.  THE MISSION:  As representatives of each
Homeowner, members of the Architectural
Control Committee (ACC), are volunteer
community members.  The ACC, as established
in the CC&R’s, has been charged with the
mission to oversee that each lot and dwelling
within the Community is developed and
maintained in a manner compatible with its
standard aesthetics and quality.

B.  ALL IMPROVEMENTS:  The ACC has the
responsibility to approve or to reject all plans
for real property improvements on all lots within
any subdivision of the Community, and all
properties owned by the Bermuda Dunes
Community Association and Bermuda Dunes
Security Association, prior to commencement of
construction of that improvement.

C. RESPONSIBILITY: The ACC’s goal is to foster
careful design in furtherance of its
responsibility to represent each Homeowner in
the preservation of the architectural and
landscaping aesthetics and character of the
homes within the Community and to monitor,
according to its authority for interpretation,
enforcement of BDCA’s governing documents.  
Utilizing and interpreting the Guidelines, the
ACC will consider the aesthetic and functional
aspects of each design, including placement of
buildings, landscaping, exterior finishes and
materials, height and bulk, orientation of site
lines, etc.  In addition, the ACC will consider the
effect of the proposed improvement on
neighboring properties and the Community as a
whole.

D.  LIMITATION OF RESPONSIBILITY:  The ACC
is not responsible for reviewing nor shall its
approval of any plan or design be deemed
approval of any structural safety or
conformance with building or other codes. The
ACC assumes no responsibility for the
structural or mechanical soundness of
approved designs.

E.  RECORDS:  Records of ACC approvals or
actions will be kept on file, by Tract or Unit and
by Lot number, at the office of the BDCA.

F.  AUTHORITY:  Submissions are required
directly from homeowners, regardless that they
may reside in sub-communities that may have
their own architectural review boards,
guidelines and committees.  The BDCA-ACC has
final authority for approval of projects as
outlined herein. No submittals will be accepted
from sub-community boards or committees,
unless submission is for common area projects
within the sub-community.

It is that time of the year that new BDSA board members
are being elected by our Community.

After closely reading all the applicants' information, we
will be supporting
Jerry Lugos. He has proven himself for
years as an individual who knows his stuff. If you like
what you have seen on the curb/gutter and road
improvements - then Jerry is the guy for you.

We also recommend
Robert Anderson. His qualifications
are superior and we feel he will add a lot of sound advice
to the BDSA Board.

You have three votes...We suggest 2 for Jerry and 1 for
Robert.

Please do your own research and vote!

A big thank you to all of the patrons, sponsors, volunteers and staff
who made the 2018 Riverside County Fair & National Date
Festival a success! Fantasy Springs Resort Casino’s continued
support as Presenting Sponsor was vital to the Fair’s success; a
tremendous thank you to them for their ongoing partnership.
The 2018 Fair had a star-studded performer lineup. Back by
popular demand was WAR who had the crowd grooving in their
seats. Country star Chase Rice and Los Rieleros Del Norte also
performed at the Fair and pleased the crowds!

The Blogfolks
Highway to High Art
Go inside the private studios of some of the High
Desert’s most eclectic artists.













Come up for a visit to Snake Jagger Studio and Nature Trails
​My home is my gallery and work studio, I am open during the Hwy
62 Open Studio Art Tours in the Fall, and I am also open by
appointment if you would like a tour.

We often view art in an isolated setting. But if one experiences it
within the context of the creative process, there is potential for a
deeper understanding of the work itself.

This is precisely what the yearly, self-guided Hwy 62 Open
Studio Art Tours allows patrons to do. More than 100 artists in
the Morongo Basin open their studios and interact with visitors in
their work-spaces — areas usually kept separate from 
where
their finished pieces are displayed.

Another powerful aspect of the tour is the ability to immerse
oneself in not only the artist environment, but also the natural
surroundings that shape the work. For Pioneertown potters and
Hwy 62 Open Studio Art Tours veterans Amara and Thomas
Alban of MazAmar Pottery, who moved to the High Desert after
seeking a place “where the artists live,” the landscape plays a
major factor in creation. “We weren’t even potters before moving
here,” Amara says. “The desert did it to us. We’re influenced by
our surroundings; the landscape, colors, even the climate
contribute to our aesthetic and
inspiration.”

How to Fix a Recipe That's Too Salty
Don't Waste Food That's Too Salty, There's a Quick Fix!

Oops! That pinch of salt turned into a small pile, and now your
dinner is too salty to eat. What can you do? Don't panic or toss
the entire dish. This problem is easy enough to remedy.













How to Fix Food That's Too Salty
There are actually several ways to fix salty food. Which you
choose is going to depend on the recipe. Here are some options
to consider:


Water to the Rescue!
Rescue too-salty soups and sauces by adding a bit of water.
Start with a small amount; then, taste the results; and add more
until you get it right.

You might need to add more solid foods to get the soup or sauce
back to the desired consistency. Toss in more pasta, rice or
non-salty vegetables. It'll increase the amount of food you're
making, but it's better to have leftovers than to throw away an
entire meal.

Sodium-free broth can also be used to dilute the saltiness of
soups.

To fix over-salted meats, just give them a quick rinse under
running water, and pat them dry with a paper towel when you're
done.

You can also leech the salt out of salted pork or bacon that you
find too salty by soaking it in water for at least two hours before
you serve it.

Just Add Acid
Use an acidic ingredient, like white vinegar or lemon juice, to cut
the saltiness of soups and sauces. A splash should be all it
takes to dial back the saltiness.

Counteract it with Sweetness
Counteract all of that saltiness by stirring a pinch of sugar into
soups, sauces or other liquids. Consider brown sugar for darker
sauces.

Transform too-salty tomato sauces into a cream sauce by
adding a splash of cream.

Add Bulk to the Dish
Toss in extra veggies, noodles, rice or other grains to bulk out a
recipe, so it no longer tastes too salty to eat. Again, you'll have
extra food, but you won't be wasting money.

The Potato Fix: Fact or Fiction
Adding a single potato to a dish has long been touted as a way
to remove excess salt. It may or may not work, and there is some
debate in the cooking community about its effectiveness. In the
least, it may remove a bit of the salty flavor, but it's not likely to
fix a salt catastrophe.

The potato trick is worth trying if all else fails. Simply place a
whole potato - skin and all - into your soup and cook as normal.
Remove it before serving.

Tips for Preventing Food From Getting Too Salty
It's always easier to prevent overly salty foods, than it is to fix
them. Keep these tips in mind when cooking, and you may be
able to avoid a repeat of the problem in the future.

Never measure salt (or any spice) directly over pots, pans or
bowls that you're cooking in.
Check the salt shaker lid every time! Call it paranoia or
diligence, but it's a good idea to make sure that lid is tight before
each use.
Watch for ingredients that contain sodium. Many canned and
commercial foods contain salt, so you may want to taste the dish
before you add any salt that the recipe calls for.
Under season while cooking, and perfect it at the end. Good
cooks quickly realize that it's best to add seasonings slowly. Salt
intensifies in soups and other dishes as it heats up, so wait until
the end to taste your dish and add any finishing touches.
Taste, adjust; taste, adjust. It's perfectly fine to keep adjusting
your recipe as it cooks.
Quite simply, stop adding salt. Doctors are constantly warning
us to reduce the amount of salt we consume because we often
unknowingly exceed the daily recommendation. Avoid adding
extra salt to your food, and your taste buds will adapt over time.
It's healthier and your food will actually taste better in the end.

NOTE FROM MRS. B

Our person of the week is Lee Miller. I first met Lee when
he was Chairman of the Bermuda Dunes Community
Council. Wow, I can't believe how much time has passed
since our first meeting.

Lee later served on the Bermuda Dunes Security
Association for several years. Lee's wife had been ill for
several years and when she passed, he decided he wanted
to be closer to his kids. We missed him when he moved
from BD to Arizona.

Hi guys,    

Thought it time I actually touched base.  First, wanted to
let you know I still read and enjoy the blog. Sorry to hear that you
are having trouble getting people to serve on the board.  I did it for
5 years and enjoyed every minute.  You can tell anyone who might
care that I said it's a great experience.

As for me, I'm doing fine.  Active in Kiwanis, dinner at Palmbrook
Country Club on Friday nights with my lady friend and visit with my
grand children often.  I am really enjoying my condo here in Sun
City.

I'm attaching a few photos so you can see what it's about.  It is
1840 sq.ft. 2bd. , 2 ba. And I have less than $200K invested in it.



















Arizona is cheap.  It's raining today so I'm playing on the computer.  
We need the rain but I don't feel like driving my new car in it.

Here's my friend, Joan. We enjoy going to functions here and it is
nice having someone to share wine with!












Drop me a line when you can. I'd like to know how things are with
you.

Be well,

Lee

Hi Lee:

So happy you contacted us. It so nice to see that you have a
companion.

You are correct - Arizona is really a place to check out if one
wants to move.

Give us a call when you visit...can't wait to get caught up!

15 Rules on Dealing with Sociopaths

















If you are like most people, you probably associate the word
‘sociopath’ to serial killers. Sociopaths exhibit their antisocial
tendencies in various ways, and you’d be surprised to find out
that there are many sociopaths leading ordinary lives.

Sociopaths usually have a personality disorder whereby they are
unable to get along with others and have a total disregard to the
moral or legal standards in their culture.  Wondering how to deal
with a sociopath? Find out below.

Know the Signs of a Sociopath

It is important to be able to identify a sociopath before they can
cause any damage. One way to do so is to watch out for their
behavior. Some signs that someone might be a sociopath
include:

Lack of remorse - they hurt people with abandon without feeling
like they have done something wrong.

Liars – they lie about anything and to anyone. They do it very
casually.

Lack empathy – they do not care whether or not they hurt
someone.

Incapable of loving – they are unable to love others, and it is
apparent to those close to them.

Egocentric – they love being the center of attention.

Delusions of grandeur – they often feel superior to others.

Sociopaths are motivated by having power over others and
using it to fulfill their selfish needs. They might show some
flashes of kindness and good heartedness, but it is usually
driven by an aspect of self interest. One characteristic of
sociopaths is cheating on their partners without feeling guilty.

How to Deal with a Sociopath

You need to be wary when dealing with a person with
sociopathic tendencies. Now that you are familiar with their
characteristics, here are things to watch out for when dealing
with a sociopath.

Practice the ‘Rule of Threes’

Only give someone 3 chances. After that, it’s best to cut your
losses and run. One mistake such as a lie, a broken promise or
a neglected responsibility should be forgiven since it could be a
misunderstanding. The second mistake could be a serious
mistake. The third strike should be the final one. Cut ties with
them completely.

Avoid Them

When you realize you’re dealing with someone who could be a
sociopath, make a point of staying away from them. Do not try to
cure them or beat them at their own game.   

Don't Try To Reform Them

With studies showing that efforts at curing sociopaths with
therapy do not bear fruit, it is best to leave them alone. They will
only waste your time and use the sessions to sharpen their
conning and conversational skills. You simply cannot cure a
sociopath. Only a person who has some humanity in them can
be reformed. Those devoid of a conscience are beyond reform.

Protect Yourself

A sociopath will attempt to drain you of everything you have
including your money, emotional well being, power, reputation
and status. If they see you as a threat to their deceitful lifestyle,
they will come after you. They would want to see you become
completely desolate. They might try to get your fired from your
job and begin to bad mouth you to friends. Take any possible
preemptive measures.

Keep It to Yourself

How to deal with a sociopath? Do not confront the sociopath
about their behavior and your plan to cease interaction. This will
only backfire on you.

Refrain from Accusations

Do not try to accuse them of any wrongdoing. They won’t
respond well and it might turn into a fight. You will lose more
than they will.

Hold Back Your Emotions

A sociopath wouldn’t want to hear about our feelings especially if
what you feel reflects negatively on them. Avoid getting
emotional whenever you are in a confrontation with them.
However, if they feel wronged by you, show them as much
empathy as you would another person.   

Avoid Ultimatums And Power Plays

A sociopath will view any sort of ultimatums, emotional pressure
and power plays as games or threats.

Avoid Intrigue

Do not play mind games with a sociopath. Do not compete with
them, don’t try to outsmart them or even psychoanalyze them.
Your focus should be on protecting yourself.

10. There’s No Right or Wrong

Don’t talk about being wrong or right. Sociopaths do not
perceive right or wrong. They only understand power, and they
want to have power over you.

11. Be Skeptical

Sociopaths have perfected the art of pushing people’s buttons in
order to get their way with them. It is important to be on the
lookout for this. How to deal with a sociopath? Make sure to stay
calm and collected no matter what the person says. For
example, they might tell you about a party you were not invited
you just to rile you up.

12. Don't Share Personal Information

One thing you need to realize about sociopaths is that they will
use anything you turn them against you. They are professional
manipulators, and so you should be wary of what you share with
them. Keep communication short and stick to the facts; avoding
shareing your address, your bank account, etc. Do not give your
personal opinion on anything.

13. Suspect Flattery

Flattery and compliments are different, and you should learn to
tell them apart. Sociopaths use flattery as a tool for manipulation.

14. Avoid Pity Parties

Sociopaths have an easy time manipulating those who pity too
easily. They will give you all sorts of sob stories to get you to do
their bidding. If you are constantly feeling pity for someone who
hurts you, then you are probably dealing with a sociopath. Stay
away from them. That’s how to deal with a sociopath.

15. Get Back Up

Depending on your relationship with the sociopath, you might
need professional help to keep help you recover psychologically
and physiologically. This is especially so when the sociopath is
unwilling to let you go. Your friends can be of great help
especially if the sociopath cannot reach them or is unknown to
them. This is because the sociopath can easily start spreading
rumors about you to your friends in a bid to turn them against
you.
