LABOR DAY REMINDER...
By Appointment Only

hard working staff can enjoy their day off! If you need to see us about anything, please do so the
weekend before or the Tuesday following. Thanks!
September 23rd marks the first day of the Autumn equinox. In response to cooler temperatures
and less sunlight during the fall months, leaves stop producing chlorophyll, which is the green
pigment that helps capture sunlight to power photosynthesis. As the green color fades, the other
pigments in the leaves shine through, such as orange and yellow carotenoids and vibrant red
anthocyanin. Get outside and enjoy a hike, go for a bike ride, or have a picnic, and let your eyes
take in all of the changing colors!

response to the attacks. Visit service.org for more information.
Slow Cooker Apple Butter
In the late 1800’s, a German
pediatrician, Dr. Martin A.
Couney, invented the infant
incubator we have come to
accept as a critical component
in premature infant survival. Dr.
Couney’s own daughter was a
preemie, and in fact, about 36%
of infant deaths at the time were
due to premature births, however, his daughter
lived to adulthood under his care. Many in the
medical field were skeptical about his incubator invention,
which was a clear box enclosure in which an infant could
be kept in a controlled environment with the ability to
adjust temperature, oxygen, and humidity levels.
The flavors captured in a jar of freshmade apple butter are the epitome of
the fall season. Spread it on toast, waffles,
muffins, or eat it on your peanut butter
perhaps even jar some up as a gift for
Dr. Couney created an exhibit of infant incubators,
where he would graciously take in premature infants from
hospitals around the United States, at no charge to the
parents, and a team of nurses helped monitor and feed
the babies. Exhibit visitors would pay an admission fee
of $1 to see the babies and hear a lecture about their
care. Babies were released back to their parent’s care
when they were deemed healthy. The permanent infant
incubator exhibit was set on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City.
It is said that Dr. Couney was able to rehabilitate 90% of the
infants that came under his care. The Atlantic City exhibit
closed in 1943 after his invention became widely accepted
and utilized by hospitals across the world, a success he
was proud to see before his death in 1950. Dr. Couney’s
life continues to be honored in every preemie whose life is
saved because of his invention and dedication to change
the course of medical history.

2.Set slow cooker to LOW, close the lid,
and let cook for about 5 hours. Check
the liquid periodically to make sure the
apples are not drying out. Add more
water, as needed.
3.After the apples are cooked
thoroughly, place them in a blender
or food processor, add lemon juice,
and puree until smooth. If the apple
butter looks more like apple sauce,
lacking a rich brown color, place back
into the slow cooker and cook on
high for about another hour, leaving it
uncovered and checking often. Spoon
apple butter into individual jars and
store in the refrigerator.

Don’t Be Stressed, Be Excited!
Reclassifying stress as excitement will
improve your performance.
Whether you’re waiting for your turn
to speak at the podium or preparing
to meet all the big shots in the
company, you’ll probably feel
stressed, have sweaty palms, a fast
heart beat and hope that you can
remember all of your plans.
What should you do? Convince
yourself to calm down or to get
excited. In a Harvard Business School
survey, professor Alison Wood Brooks
asked hundreds of people what
they would do. The responses showed that 91
percent would try to calm down.
The Harvard experts say calming down is the wrong
choice. To perform under pressure, welcoming
anxiety and turning it into excitement for the
occasion is far better.
In their study, they told half of the participants
to tell themselves, “I am calm.” The other half
were told to embrace their anxiety and to tell
themselves, “I am excited.”
The excited speakers felt more able to handle the
pressure and were more confident in their ability
to give a good talk. Additionally, observers felt
that the excited speakers were more persuasive,
confident, and competent than those who tried
to be calm. In research published in the Journal of
Experimental Social Psychology, Jeremy Jamieson,
a professor at the University of Rochester, tested
the theory with college students who
were preparing to take the Graduate
Record Examination, which is used for
admission to PhD. programs.
He told some test-takers that if they
felt stressed and anxious they
should remind themselves that the
stress could be helping them do
Those who turned stress into
excitement did better than others.
Other research shows that a positive
view of anxiety can make you less
likely to burn out on a demanding
Tips for A Successful Life
Love your family. Respect those around you by
giving them your best. Be helpful, accountable,
and reliable. Set standards.
Go to work and work hard. The work you do
shows love for your family. All work is valuable
and doing your best at work, no matter how
humble, earns respect. It opens doors. It builds
a foundation for life.
Pay your bills. Live up to your agreements. Live
within your means. Be a person others trust.
Plan for the future. Reserve some money for
emergencies; they are inevitable. Always look
for new opportunities. Remember, you will not
always be young; plan for your old age.
Make your own solutions. Don’t look to others
to solve your problems. Don’t blame them for
your problems. Find your own solutions.
Endure setbacks fearlessly. You won’t get what
you want all the time and maybe not even
most of the time. When disappointed, move
