Hopefully no snails here to make snail chowder

Shauna - the building is Camden H. Our association president sent you an email from Canada, on October 8th to start the remedy process.

I was copied on the email. As far as I know, and I am on the board, no action was taken as a result of the request.


Prior to the association president contacting you, I contacted Chris about the issue.

Didn't here any for a while and when I asked Chris about it again, he told me Lenny is talking to Joe about it.

I went to Home Depot, bought and applied two boxes of Cory's snail repellant for roughly 240 liner feet of affected area. Thank you.

Get Your Flu Shot Now


Why you should get a flu shot now, before the snowbirds, flakes, and grandchildren descend upon Century Village.

Dr. Alina Alonso, director of the Florida Department of Health in Palm Beach County, echoes Spell’s sentiments: “You might not only be protecting yourself you will be protecting a young baby or an elderly person who may be next to you.”
Even if someone comes down with a flu strain not included in the vaccine, he or she will get less sick than if they didn’t get the shot, she added.

Five Reasons To Get A Flu Shot Now

    The Flu Season Is Just Starting: The CDC suggests getting a flu shot as the season starts. It takes awhile for the vaccine to get up to full speed.
    You Touch Everything: The virus lurks in places you wouldn’t think. Everyone is vulnerable to picking up the virus.
    A Flu Shot Won’t Make You Sick: It’s a myth. The vaccine is made up of antibodies, an inactive virus that can’t transmit infection.
    Do It For Others: You can unknowingly pass on the flu to your spouse, your children and those vulnerable, like the elderly
    The flu can kill: The recent pandemic in Australia killed more than 70.

Those most vulnerable to the deadliness of the flu strain are young children and the elderly. The rest of us will miss work or school suffering fever, chills, congestion, body aches, and sore throat.

D Putting it off is not wise since it takes two weeks for the vaccine to take full effect.

Also, the vaccine carries a dead virus so that it can’t give anyone the disease.

“We are very concerned about the upcoming flu season especially because of all the bad publicity the flu shot has been getting,” Greissman said. “Our practice has seen an upswing in the number of influenza positive patients; I strongly urge the community to get vaccinated this season.”

Florida usually runs a little behind the rest of the country as the flu hits colder climes first and then winter visitors bring it to Florida during tourist season. The state has sentinel physicians reporting what strains are out there.

“The bottom line for the public is that it’s very important to get the flu vaccine,” she said. “We have a lot more places to get vaccines. They are often not even asking for a copay now.”

Some Floridians may even come out ahead. Publix Supermarkets is offering a $10 grocery coupon for every adult who gets immunized from the flu. Walgreens, CVS and other outlets administer flu shots to children as well and others offer coupons, too.

EQUIFAX DATA BREACH - WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO YOU - LIVE IN CYBERSPACE

Snails climbing up outside wall


For about two months now, snails have been climbing up the front face of one of our association’s buildings. First floor only. They are knocked off during the weekly cleanings, but return.

I asked our maintenance company manager about the problem and they said it is the first they have heard of such a thing.

Is any other association experiencing such a thing and did you come up with a solution?

Thank you.

Lessons Learned (Irma)

Please add to this beyond existing prep list items, CERT prep list was excellent too:

Make friends and contact contractors before hurricane season.
Remind maintenance to put blue/yellow recycle bins in meter room, or do it your self.
When your power is on, or whenever, check on friends in nursing homes.
If you are replacing trees per code, Live Florida Oaks, or Palms, most likely to stand.
If hurricane is coming across FL from the Keys, probably shelter in place.  If it comes from east, leave!
Make sure you have phone recharger for the car, not just indoors.
Have a condo checker if you are away (not the Board!)
Anything still needs to be done, do it yourself.

Please read, the life you save may be yours!!!!
