Your Honeywell Retirees Club will provide a delicious baked ham, rolls, coffee, tea and water. Plates, utensils, condiments, etc. will also be provided. Attendees are asked to bring a covered dish to share: hot casserole, baked beans, salad or dessert of your choice. Get out your favorite recipes and prepare your specialty to share with others. There will be no charge to HRC members and guests. The ham will be served hot from roasters that will have been caringly heated by your HRC Board. You may bring your own beer (we will have a beer permit) or soft drinks if you would like, but no glass containers are allowed in the park.
Visit exciting ports south of the border. The Royal Caribbean Vision of the Seas features a very soothing day spa, two pools, six whirlpools, and the Masquerade Theater with nightly entertainment, such as contemporary musical stage productions. And that is just the beginning.
Prices include cruise fare, taxes, Government fees, $25.00 per person on board credit and a cocktail party. Gratuities and Transportation to and from Los Angeles are NOT included. Reservations are at the group rate
NOTE: A down payment of $250.00 per person was due on November 20 (however, a few spots may still be available) with the final payment on January 17, 2008. All U.S. citizens must have a current passport. Because they take time to be issued, please apply as soon as possible.

For those who want to explore our great state, here is an outstanding opportunity to get out and enjoy the beauty of Arizona and visit places you would not get to without an experienced leader.
February 23: North Trail, McDowell Mountains. This trail is a rare find in Arizona. This is another beautiful hike, highlighting much of the Sonoran Desert 's ecological splendor. Start your trek on the west side of Asher View Drive South , across from the parking area. The trail heads west from the street beyond a pair of picnic tables. 0.2 miles in, you will encounter a junction and should head right. Traveling northwest you will pass through dry washes and among 45-foot high saguaros. Along with the many giant saguaros, you are likely to come across black-tailed jack rabbits, antelope squirrels, rock squirrels, coyote and javalina. As you round back toward the start, the trail dips and rolls toward Lousley Hill . The hike leader is George Krekeler at 602-944-4150.

We don't know of any big winners, but we also know of no big losers. Everyone participating in this event had a very good time and enjoyed a good lunch. Socializing and laughter were the order of the day. Some of the group also went down to the track for the Sperry/Honeywell Race and group picture.
The Fiddler on the Roof dinner theater was a huge success. Ninety seven retirees from the Sperry and Honeywell Retiree Clubs attended the play and enjoyed the good food along with the fellowship and communication with their fellow retirees.
We can help Honeywell retirees or surviving spouses with fix-it jobs around the house that you are not good at or are unable to do and prevent these jobs from becoming budget busters. The Fixit Guys are Bob, Dick, Gene, Sam, Perry, Matt, Paul, Ed and Clint.
Call us at this number, (602) 765-4466, and leave a clear message containing job information, your name and telephone number. We probably can help and will get back to you as quickly as practical. We furnish the labor at no cost to you; you furnish the cost of the parts.
You don't need a science background to volunteer at Arizona Science Center ! Volunteer opportunities include gallery guides, special events volunteers, clerical and bookkeeping. The chief reward is the exhilarating interaction with children, families and school group visitors that number 400,000 each year. In addition you will receive two general admission and planetarium passes after 50 hours of service and basic membership after 100 hours of service. Parking is free at the designated parking garage and you get a discount at CityBakery with Arizona Science Center identification.
If you have technology, engineering or math experience, consider joining the Friends of Science and Technology Education (FOSTE) team of professionals who are working in a leadership capacity by developing and presenting hands-on science and technology activities and demonstrations.

When walking for exercise, senior health, or just out walking for the fun of it, be sure to wear the right shoes. There are shoes designed especially for walking; invest in a good pair for yourself. Comfy shoes extend your enjoyment time! You will also prevent injuries to your feet and legs and you will be less likely to trip and fall if you are wearing a good pair of shoes. Make sure they are supportive of your foot and are made of a breathable material like leather.
A senior citizen was driving down the freeway when his car phone rang.
Answering, he heard his wife's voice urgently warning him, "Charlie, I just heard on the news that there's a car going the wrong way on the Interstate. Please be careful!"
Charlie answered, "Honey, it's not just one car. It's hundreds of them!"
