Dear Janet,

Happy belated B-day! Mexico sounds great. Did you have to jump the Wall?

Question.  Do you remember in 9th grade when a quartet of choir singers sang

"Speak Low, When You  Speak Love "  I believe it was Marje Baum, Karen Nussick,

Lois Ehrlick, and Carole Grossman.  I found myself remembering how beautifully they harmonized

the other day.  Hauntingly beautiful.  It might have even been as Seniors at CHS.

This is not the forum for thoughts on gun control, but when we were in high school, my focus was on my friends and dates and what I would wear and did my hair flip up perfectly ( along with school work  and college of course) but the shootings in  schools put an entire different focus for kids today. My heart goes out to all the victims of all the shootings, and all their loved ones. And all kids in school today. We lived in a golden age and were very blessed,

Did anyone know Harry and Jamison Bachman...they lived up the street from me. If you remember (i am not sure what school they went to you may want to read this frightening article about them.

Happy birthday tomorrow, Susan--also David Fertik, and, on March 2, Susan Malis. Susan, I did not know those neighbors of yours.  I think that the only neighbor I knew, or remember, was Fred Rosenberg and his family.  I'll check the link.  Thanks.  Harriet

Wow, what a gut-churning story about Jamison and Harry Bachman. On a different kind of Cheltenham story, I've been wanting to share this article from the Washington Post:

What a snarky article, but what an interesting photo. Netanyahu understands America’s exceptionalism & loves our country.

Just read the article on the Bachman Bros 

That’s a story from hell. Did they go to Cheltenham?

What year?

I believe that they did but in later classes. Harriet, Fred lived in the house next to me.  Another sad story. I ran into him in NYC, He was stout, bald and drinking.

Fred Straus

Harry Bachman and his family lived on North Sterling, just around the courner from me. I did not know him other than to say "hi'. His wife is a psychologist. They had two girls a few years younger than my daughter, Susan.

Fred...this is a different Bachman. No girls, just two  boys with a scary and tragic ending. They lived on Meetinghouse Rd.

Thank you, Susan P for the Worst Roommate Ever.  Thank you, Susan F for the Netanuahu article.  Both very interesting.  I was surprised about Jamison Bachman being from Cheltenham.  Those poor people who got "taken" by him.  Agree with Nancy (Shapiro) C about the Netanuahu article.

Weather a little confused in FL.... summerlike temperatures.!   Be well and be safe...

Got to update the photo!!  The little girl in the picture is in First Grade!!

.well I am having trouble posting but will try again. Ruthie Tubis and I had a fantastic mini reunion. We met with my wife and her daughter in Portland Me and it was anamazing connection. We had so much fun remembering....lots of laughter

Hi All. I have been thinking about posting here for about a year now. The thinking began after my bone scan indicated I had crossed the line from osteopenia to osteoporosis in my lumbar spine. I suggest you stop reading now if you have no interest in osteoporosis.

I wanted to share with those interested what I have chosen to do about treating my reduced bone density and also to learn what others are doing, in particular, to treat osteoporosis without medication.

To medicate or not is obviously a personal choice. I decided to spend a year treating my self with diet and weight-bearing exercise. My next bone scan is in two days: Monday, Aug 13, 2018. So I'll be able to then let you know if I've had success limiting the progression or, possibly even reversing the condition. I know, it's a tall order.

My diet that emphasizes fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds has rewarded me with excellent cholesterol numbers, so I'm glad for that. As for exercise, I load my backpack with items from the pantry, such as potatoes, jars of salsa, and cans of beer and then walk for 20 minutes or so.

To limit my risks, especially after a near miss in traffic, I have given up bike riding as a way of getting around and now I drive/walk to get places, generally parking a 15-minute walk away from my destination.

Has anyone out there been able to or heard of anyone able to reverse osteoporosis without medication? If so, I'd love to hear from you.

After I learn my DXA scan results I'll let you know how successful I've been.

:)

My bone density went up with a combination of calcium, magnesium and pilates! I have been taking pilates for about six years now, but my last bone density improved 4 years ago for the first time and then again two years later, I am due for another shortly. I also however take estrogen, which you would probably not want to do, but I find it very helpful for my mood, my hotflashes and of course my bone density. I've been taking the estrogen all along but my bone density had dropped until I started the pilates. And it improved slightly with each bone density (x 2). I recommend pilates to everyone. It is an amazing form of exercise. However, I believe, as well as my instructor does, that classes are not the best way to go about it, because if you don't do the exercises exactly right you may not get the desired benefit. If you can't afford private instruction all the time, perhaps once a week you could do private and then once a week classes, because your instructor will make sure you know how to do the exercises properly. My strength a balance are amazing for someone our age. You really will feel better.

Hello Class,

As always I enjoy reading what all you have to say.

Today I am with Nancy and would like to know if Tom

is working on our 55 reunion? Also I have not read about

any mini in Philly. I am coming in the mid Sept. just checking.

Hi Susan I have been blessed to have good bone scans, although I do

have Arthritis in my lower back. For over a year I have made a protien shake

for breakfast  every day and go to the gym twice a week to exercise.  I stay

away from Pork and Beef and eat Chichen, Fish, Fresh Veg. and Salads. It

does work. I was 99lbs all my life and when I got in my 60 I picked up 50lb.

and would have picked up more if I did not do something. I am on my way

to lose some of it  . Best of luck to all to stay Healthy

Marilyn

This is great to know Harriet. What impressive results. I also take (limited )calcium supplements and magnesium as well as vitamins D3 and K2. I had my scan today and seems I'll get results next week. 

Marilyn, that is fantastic. Diet and exercise can help so much for whatever ails you.

I was very sorry to hear of Steve Cohen's recent passing.  Since I hadn't seen Steve since graduation, my recollection of him was as a young man!  Unfortunately the list of our deceased classmates is quite large at this time.  Let us all enjoy each day we are given.

Beware of where you buy your Vitamin D. I bought a bottle and later discovered my dog had consumed the bottle. It is posionous to dogs. However he did not get sick and I realized  that there was very little if any D in the tablets. This was from the supermarket..so only buy from a legitimate supplement store.  My dog's appetite is another story.

Susan Fishman (Orlins)

Thanks . Susie, I'm going to throw out the Vitamin D I bought from CVS. By the way, a year after my healthy high calcium diet started and walking with a weighted backpack, my bone scan showed no improvement, but also no further deterioration. I with someone would come up with a safe treatment. Nikki I'm inspired that you have had success and I'm bumping up my calcium.

I'm so said to hear that Steve Cohen died. He lived a couple of blocks from me and I knew he was quite ill. He was greatly admired.

I was also sorry to hear that Steve Cohen died,  we worked hard together on the Cheltoniian.  He was very serious.  I understand he was a renound law professor at Georgetown Law School in D,C.  My regards to everyone.  Joan Murphy

I used to get some sort of shot that really helped me...cannot remember what it was but I can try and find out if anyone is interested.


08/28/18 12:37 PM #1539    

Susan Fishman (Orlins)

Thanks Susie. I've been trying to avoid medication due to the risk of significant side effects, but of course I am also risking fractures.
