Dear Residents,

What a great turn for the election of our new Resident’s Committee and how nice it was to be able to have the meeting in
our new Recreational Hall. Congratulations to our new Resident’s Committee who were sworn in during October, and I
think all residents will feel comfortable knowing they are there to help them if any problems arise.
The new Committee consists of:-

             Ron Toleman (Chairman)                   - Site 74a    (02) 66 526035
             Rhonda Johnson (Secretary)               - Site 66     0401226122
             Carol Gosper                             - Site 77     0488521759

I would like to thank all residents for the smooth change over of all accounts from the Commonwealth Bank to the
National Australia Bank. We really appreciate your assistance in this matter and it was all done with very little disruption.
Good work.

It is lovely to see families having a great time and Janet and Stephanie had a lovely
holiday in Bali recently. Stephanie thought it was a great idea and can’t wait to go
again, especially with Nan as she pays for everything!!

                                  A good time was had by all, especially Frank
                                  Chetcuti and his friend at the recent dance at the
                                  new Senior’s Hall.

                                  The Social Club invite you to put aside MELBOURNE CUP DAY,
                                  NOVEMBER 3, and join them in the festivities in our new Recreation Hall. Such a great
                                  day was had last year by all and hopefully it will be bigger and better this year with our
                                  lovely new large screen television to watch the Cup. Some of the Social Committee will
                                  be going around selling sweep
                                  tickets in the next couple of weeks. More details will be put out on a flyer shortly.

You may have noticed that the company’s web page was down for several days last week. This was necessary whilst we
updated some of the information and also added a new link. The new page ‘For Sale’ features all the homes we have
listed for sale in our villages, both new and pre-loved. It is already proving to be a great selling tool and has resulted in a
number of sales.
Please note that it is company policy to only list homes if they are listed with us exclusively.

Until next month. Keep well.

John & Vicky

                                      MESSAGE FROM THE AMBULANCE SERVICE
Ambulance Service

                    We all carry our mobile phones with names and numbers stored in its memory. If we were to be involved in an
                    accident or were taken ill, the people attending us would have our mobile phone but wouldn’t know who to
                    call. Yes, there are hundreds of numbers stored, but which one is the contact person in case of an emer-
                    gency? Hence this ‘ICE’ (In Case of Emergency) Campaign. The concept of ICE is catching on quickly. It is a
                    method of contact during emergency situations. As mobile phones are carried by the majority of the popula-
                    tion, all you need to do is store the number of a contact person or persons who should be contacted during
                    emergency under the name ICE. The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that when he went to
                    the scenes of accidents there were always mobile phones with patients but they didn’t know which number to
                    call. He therefore thought it would be a good idea if there was a nationally recognized name for this purpose.
                    In an emergency situation, Emergency Personnel and Hospital Staff would be able to quickly contact the right
                    person by simply dialling the number you have stored as ICE.
                    It really could save your life, or put a loved one’s mind at rest. For more than one contact name simply enter
                    ICE1, ICE2, ICE3 etc.

                    Clear a Clogged Drain – Before you reach for a caustic drain cleaner to unclog the kitchen or bathroom drain, try this much gentler
                    Use a funnel to insert ½ a cup of borax into the drain, then slowly pour in 2 cups of boiling water. Let the mixture sit for 15 minutes,
                    then flush with hot water. Repeat for stubborn clogs.
Handy Hints

                    Clean Your Toilet – You can disinfect the toilet bowl and leave it glistening without having to worry about dangerous fumes, by
                    using a stiff brush to scrub it in solution of ½ cup of borax in 4 litres of water.

                    Control Wandering Jew – If your garden being overrun by wandering jew, you may be able to conquer it with borax. Firstly dis-
                    solve 230-280 grams of borax in 120 ml of warm water. Then pour the solution into 9 litres of warm water (this is enough to cover
                    93 sq metres). Apply this treatment only once every 2 years.

                                     The Book Review
                                    The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown
                     I've read all of Dan Brown's books, and am huge fan, The DaVinci Code and
                     Angels and Demons made Dan Brown a well known author. I do enjoy his
                     stories and the fantastical idea that there could be some huge conspiracy or
                     esoteric out there that only a few people know about, and his latest novel The
Lost Symbol, is no exception. This is the third book to follow Robert Langdon, a Harvard Symbologist .

In The Lost Symbol, Robert Langdon again finds himself solving an age-old cryptographic mystery against his will,
against the clock and against the odds. In true Dan Brown fashion this book is a unique mix of suspenseful action-
thriller and a fascinating discussion of connections between ancient and modern science; the latter is personified in
Langdon's new reluctant sidekick, Kathy Solomon, a scientist who finds her discoveries the target of an evil and per-
sistent character named Mal'akh who is the book's bad guy. The self-named Mal'akh has transformed his body with
weights and steroids and to make the transformation complete, he's covered himself with tattoos, everywhere save for
a small circle on his head. During the day, when he goes out, he hides his tattooed face with makeup and wears a
Mal'akh is after secret knowledge guarded by the Masons and he'll stop at nothing to get it. To that end he's kid-
napped Peter Solomon, the head of the Masonic order in Washington, DC and he's lured Symbologist Robert Lang-
don from Harvard to Washington, because he believes Langdon is the only man alive who can decipher the ancient
symbols that will lead to this knowledge. Solomon is Langdon's friend and if Langdon doesn't do Mal'akh's bidding,
Solomon is going to die.

However, Mal'akh isn't the only one after these secrets. The CIA is as well.
They also seem hellbent on keeping Langdon from succeeding in his quest to find this forbidden knowledge, a knowl-
edge Langdon doesn't believe in, but he soldiers on, because his friend's life is at stake. Little does he realize his own
life is at stake as well in this story .

 I LOVE short chapters, and if you do, too--the fact that there are over a hundred of them in this book will make it
more enjoyable. There is a LOT of info contained in the book and you can clearly see that a ton of research went into
the history of the story.
'The Lost Symbol' is an excellent story and HIGHLY entertaining no matter what anyone else says. Keep in mind that
opinions vary...otherwise, a very solid entry by Dan Brown. I really enjoyed it overall.
This book has it all. A great hero, a super nasty bad guy and lots of action. It was certainly an enjoyable read and
enough to satiate me until the next book comes out (provided he doesn't wait as long as he did for this one).

                          1. Understand what it is that will make you happy. Everyone has unique requirements for attaining happiness and what makes
9 Tips for happiness

                               one person happy may be very different from what makes someone else happy. Revel in your individuality and do not worry
                               about whether or not your desires are comparable to those of your peers.
                          2. Make a plan for attaining goals that you believe will make you happy. Your mood will very likely increase as your pursue your
                               goal because you will feel better about yourself for going after something you value.
                          3. Surround yourself with happy people. It is easy to begin to think negatively when you are surrounded by people who think that
                               way. Conversely, if you are around people who are happy their emotional state will be infectious.
                          4. When something goes wrong try to figure out a solution instead of wallowing in self pity. Truly happy people don’t allow set
                               backs to affect their mood because they know that with a little thought they can turn the circumstances back to their favour.
                          5. Spend a few minutes each day thinking about the things that make you happy. These few minutes will give you the opportu-
                               nity to focus on the positive things in your life and will lead you to continued happiness.
                          6. It’s also important to take some time each day to do something nice for yourself. Whether you treat yourself to lunch, take a
                               long, relaxing bath or simply spend a few extra minutes on your appearance you will be subconsciously putting yourself in a
                               better mood.
                          7. Finding the humour in situations can also lead to happiness. While there are times that require you to be serious, when it is
                               appropriate, find a way to make light of a situation that would otherwise make you unhappy.
                          8. Maintaining your health is another way to achieve happiness. Being overweight or not eating nutritious foods can have a
                               negative effect on your mood. Additionally, exercise has been known to release endorphins that give you a feeling of happi-
                          9. Finally, it is important to understand that you deserve happiness. Those who believe that they are not worthy of happiness
                               may subconsciously sabotage their efforts to achieve happiness. If necessary, tell yourself each day that you deserve to be
                               happy and remind yourself what steps you will take to achieve the happiness you desire.
                          Happiness is hard to define but most people are aware of whether they are happy or not. Many people believe that happiness is a
                          form of luck and that some people are destined to be happy while others are destined to be unhappy. I try to incorporate the tips
                          above into my life and have had great success in achieving happiness. The tips in this article are small but meaningful steps that
                          you can take each day to lead you to true happiness.

Cranky Old Man

What do you see nurses? . .. . . .What do you see?
                                                                     HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
What are you thinking .. . . . when you're looking at me?
A cranky old man, . . . . . .not very wise,
Uncertain of habit .. . . . . . with faraway eyes?

I look at the future ... . . . . . I shudder with dread.           problems.
For my young are all rearing . . .young of their own.
And I think of the years . And the love that I've known.

I'm now an old man . . . . . . .and nature is cruel.
It's jest to make old age . . . look like a fool.
The body, it crumbles .. . . . grace and vigour, depart.
There is now a stone .. . . . .where I once had a heart.

But inside this old carcass . .A young man still dwells,
And now and again . . .. . . . my battered heart swells
I remember the joys . .. . . .I remember the pain.
And I'm loving and living . . . life over again.

I think of the years . all too few . . gone too fast.
And accept the stark fact . . . . .that nothing can last.
So open your eyes, people . . . . . open and see.
Not a cranky old man . Look closer . see . .. . ME!!

Remember this poem when you next meet an older person who
you might brush aside without looking at the young soul within .
... . .we will all, one day, be there, too!

A man walks into a bar and asks the barman, 'Was I in here last night?' 'You certainly were,' replies the barman.
'And did I spend a lot of money?' 'You spent over £100', replies the barman. 'Thank god for that,' says the man, 'I thought
I'd wasted it.'
A blonde suspects her boyfriend of cheating on her, so she goes out and buys a gun. She goes to his apartment unex-
pectedly and when she opens the door she finds him in the arms of a redhead. Well, the blonde is really angry. She opens
her purse to take out the gun, and as she does so, she is overcome with grief. She takes the gun and puts it to her head.
The boyfriend yells, "No, honey, don't do it!" The blonde replies, "Shut up, you're next!"
Joe has been seeing a psychoanalyst for four years for treatment of the fear that he had monsters under his bed. It had
been years since he had gotten a good night's sleep. Furthermore, his progress was very poor, and he knew it. So, one
day he stops seeing the psychoanalyst and decides to try something different. A few weeks later, Joe's former psycho-
analyst meets his old client in the supermarket, and is surprised to find him looking well-rested, energetic, and cheerful.
"Doc!" Joe says, "It's amazing! I'm cured!" "That's great news!" the psychoanalyst says. "you seem to be doing much
better. How?" "I went to see another doctor," Joe says enthusiastically, "and he cured me in just ONE session!" "One?!"
the psychoanalyst asks incredulously. "Yeah," continues Joe, "my new doctor is a behaviorist." "A behaviorist?" the psy-
choanalyst asks. "How did he cure you in one session?" "Oh, easy," says Joe. "He told me to cut the legs off of my bed."
My wife asked me to buy ORGANIC vegetables from the market. I went and looked around and couldn't find any. So I
grabbed an old, tired looking employee and said, "These vegetables are for my wife. Have they been sprayed with any
poisonous chemicals?" "The produce guy looked at me and said, "No. You'll have to do that yourself."
This guy buys a parrot. Every morning he stands in front of the cage and asks in a pleasant voice "Can you talk?" This
goes on for weeks with absolutely no response from the bird. Finally one morning, totally fed up, he shouts "CAN YOU
TALK, YOU STUPID CREATURE? CAN YOU TALK?" The bird looks him in the eye and says "I can talk, all right. Can
you fly?"
One day at a busy airport, the passengers on a commercial airliner are seated waiting for the pilot to show up so they can
get under way. The pilot and copilot finally appear in the rear of the plane and begin walking up to the cockpit through the
center aisle. Both appear to be blind; the pilot is using a white cane, bumping into passengers right and left as he stum-
bles down the aisle. The copilot is using a guide dog. Both have their eyes covered with sunglasses. At first, the passen-
gers do not react thinking that it must be some sort of practical joke. After a few minutes though, the engines start revving,
and the airplane begins moving down the runway. The passengers look at each other with some uneasiness. They start
whispering among themselves and look desperately to the stewardesses for reassurance. Yet, the plane starts accelerat-
ing rapidly, and people begin panicking. Some passengers are praying, and as the plane gets closer and closer to the end
of the runway, the voices are becoming more and more hysterical. When the plane has less than twenty feet of runway
left, there is a sudden change in the pitch of the shouts as everyone screams at once. At the very last moment, the plane
lifts off and is airborne. Up in the cockpit, the copilot breathes a sigh of relief and tells the pilot: "You know, one of these
days the passengers aren't going to scream, and we aren't going to know when to take off!"
Marriage is not a word. It is a sentence--a life sentence. Marriage is very much like a violin; after the sweet music is over,
the strings are attached. Marriage is love. Love is blind. Therefore, marriage is an institution for the blind. Marriage is an
institution in which a man loses his Bachelor's Degree and the woman gets her Masters. Marriage is a thing which puts a
ring on a woman's finger and two under the man's eyes. Marriage certificate is just another word for a work permit.
Marriage is not just a having a wife, but also worries inherited forever. Marriage requires a man to prepare 4 types of
"rings": * The Engagement Ring * The Wedding Ring * The Suffe-Ring * The Endu-Ring

                                    THINKING OF SELLING YOUR HOME?

                      Before you make the decision on who will handle the sale of your home, here’s
                      some food for thought........
                             We have sold 86 new and pre-loved homes in our village. The combined efforts
                      of various external Real Estate Agents during the same time has resulted in 1 home
                      sold. So, who would you prefer to trust this important role to?
                      Remember, we actively market our village in major newspapers and on the internet.
                      We exhibit at numerous trade shows and expos during the year. The inquiries that we
                      generate are handled in our on- site sales office and we get results! No one else
                      specializes exclusively in selling homes in our village.

                              SELLING YOUR HOME AT LIME TREE VILLAGE
                             If you wish us to act as your agent in selling your home, you will need to sign an
                      agency agreement with us. You may sell your home yourself or through a real estate
                      agent. However, under section 81 (1) of the Residential Parks Act 1998 ("the Act"), you
                      are required to inform us of your intention to offer your home for sale before displaying
                      a "for sale" sign in or on the home.
                             Before the purchaser of any home signs a site agreement, the Act requires us to
                      make various detailed written disclosures to them regarding the terms and nature of
                      the site agreement and their occupancy. If you are using the services of a real estate
                      agent, we suggest that you ask them to call us to discuss these matters since it may
                      cause problems if the purchaser is not made aware of them until after an agreement on
                      the sale is reached.
                             We can not unreasonably withhold consent for a purchaser of your home to take
                      over the site. However, the purchaser will need to apply to us before we will agree to
                      enter into a site agreement with them. We will generally need at least 3 working days
                      after receipt of their application to check their character and credit references. We will
