Living Will

Hi everyone!
Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream shop is sponsoring their "FREE scoop" night on April 19th. Usually Baskin Robbins 31 Flavors has their free night in April, but so far it's not advertised on their web site so I don't know when it'll be.
One question we’ve failed to see during the controversy over the Terri Schiavo "right to life" case is what can WE do to prevent this from happening in our own families. Medical technology can allow keep people alive even though they are not really functioning. Teri, who is in a vegetative state, is in the middle of a debate between a group of people who want to keep her alive and another group who want to let her die peacefully.
Her husband says she wouldn’t want to be kept alive in the condition she’s in and he says she expressed that to him. The problem is that her wishes were never written down. People should write exactly what they would like to happen in what’s called an "advance directive." People should also appoint a messenger who will be the steward of that information and will deliver it to the appropriate parties if something happens. To find out more, check out the following sites: (provides specific advance directive forms for each state), (offers details about its Five Wishes document), (charges $18 a year to scan directive documents and make wallet-sized cards specifying how medical providers can retrieve the documents from the website), and (offers directive services for member hospitals).
In case you're thinking about hitting Universal Studios during Spring Break you can save some admission money if you plan ahead. You can get discount tickets on-line BUT they're even cheaper if you buy them at VON's grocery store, BUT you can save even more money if you have one of those Universal Fan Club Cards. Ask your company's Human Resource Manager to order one for you (for companies over 50 employees). If you belong to a credit union they may have one for you as well. With that card you can also save 15% at the restaurants and gift shops at Universal Studios. The card is
just have to find one. Check out the Fan Club info on-line and you can
even get $30 tickets mailed to you with free shipping. :)
The Oriental Trading Company that sells all that great, cheap plastic junk is offering free shipping if you order by April 12th. Stock up on
Graduation stuff, party supplies, weddings, 4th of July, etc. Use code
WC54003 during checkout on-line at
Have a beautiful day!
