Have You Heard of Harry The Hypnotist?

It was entertainment night at the Senior Citizens Centre.
After the community sing-along, led by Alice at the piano, it was time for the star of the show – Harry the Hypnotist!

Harry explained that he was going to put the whole audience into a trance “Yes, each and every one of you and all at the same time,” said Harry.
The excited chatter dropped to silence as Harry carefully withdrew, from his waistcoat pocket, a beautiful antique gold pocket watch and chain.

“I want you to keep your eyes on this watch” said Harry, holding the watch high for all to see.

“It’s a very special and valuable watch that has been in my family for six generations,” said Harry.

He began to swing the watch gently back and forth while quietly chanting, “Watch the watch — watch the watch —- watch the watch”

The audience became mesmerized as the watch swayed back and forth.
The lights were twinkling as they were reflected from its gleaming surfaces.

One hundred and fifty pairs of eyes followed the movements of the gently swaying watch.

They were all hypnotized.

And then, suddenly, the chain holding the watch broke!
The beautiful watch fell to the stage and burst into fragments on impact.
“SHIT!”  shouted Harry.
It took the staff three days to completely clean up the Senior Citizens Centre and Harry was never invited back again.
When nothing goes right…  Go left.

Smart Online Shopping Tips For Health Services

Smart Online Shopping Tips For Health Services

“Know Who You’re Dealing with” 

Do Your Research

  • Know Who You’re Dealing With
  • Before you give out any personal or financial information online, whether it’s to buy an item or get more information, remember that anyone can set up shop online. If you’re thinking about buying a heath-related product from an unfamiliar company or website, do some research.
  • Confirm the online seller’s physical address (not just a P.O. Box) and phone number, so you know you can reach someone if you need to.
  • Do a search for the company name and website, and be sure to look beyond the first page of results. If you find a lot of negative reviews, you are better off taking your business elsewhere.
  • Look for indicators the site is secure, like a URL that begins with https (the “s” is for secure). But that’s not foolproof: security icons can be forged. Avoid sites that ask you to send personal or financial information by email, or ask you to wire cash through a money transfer service.
