“It’s basically a bread and butter shop” Jeff explains. “From Bentleys to Bugs… boats, Harleys, side by sides…we do it all. Bring it in and we’ll get it done.” Alright…We’re just going to come right out and say it; Jeff Meece is an audio N.E.R.D. (Never Enough Rockford Doom). You know the guy we all cheated off of in science class, we were thinking about lunch and he was thinking about how to get the most out of his car audio system.

Yeah, everyone wishes they were one of those types of nerds. Well, to date there have been 540 different people that can say they have been to space, but less than half that amount can call themselves a Mobile Electronic­s Certified Profession­al, MECP, ‘Master Installer’ and Jeff is one of those lucky few. After 15 years in the install bay, Jeff opened his own shop, Meece Car Audio, with a focus on two business philosophi­es; attention to detail and giving back to the community.

Jeff prides himself on his technical knowledge and quality of work. That’s maybe why he still does the majority of installs himself! Some come to his shop because of his high ranking in Mobile Electronic­s Magazine, or maybe it’s that he is a representa­tive for the Mobile Electronic Retailers Associatio­n, MERA.

Activities to Keep Your Mind & Body Engaged

Mindy Mendoza-Perry, Executive Direc• tor – Prestige Assisted Living at Lancaster

As social distancing and self-isolation become our new normal due to COVID-19, it is important that we all take active steps towards staying connected and engaged, even if we can’t be near others.

While social isolation is difficult for many, the senior population is at an increased risk of suffering the negative effects of isolation. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there is strong evidence that many adults aged 50 and older are socially isolated or lonely in ways that put their health at risk, including an increased risk of stroke, dementia, heart disease and depression.

Everyone can benefit from staying active and connected, especially with people they love. To reduce loneliness and keep the mind and body engaged, it is important to participat­e in activities that you can enjoy either on their own, or with others.

Here are a few ideas to help you stay active and engaged at any age.

Bake and Cook

Maybe you have a family recipe you enjoy making or you want to try something new. Baking or cooking is a great bonding experience for family and friends of all ages. From chopping and mixing to washing the dishes and enjoying the final dish, there are tons of ways to engage multiple family members throughout the entire process. If you’re worried about social distancing, try baking or cooking with your loved ones over a video call.

Create a Collage

By using photos, magazines, and newspapers around your home, you and your loved ones can make a beautiful collage. Whether you want to put together a mood board of photos you like or use colors and textures to make a cohesive image, collages are a great way to relax and show some creativity in the comfort of your own home.

Practice Your Trivia

Create your own trivia game to play with your loved ones by coming up with your own questions or finding some online. Ask questions about pop culture from when you were a kid, questions about the town your family grew up in, or anything else they may have an interest in. A fun trivia game can easily be played over the phone or via a video call.

Get Some Exercise

Taking a light stroll around the block, raking the leaves, practicing seated yoga, walking around the house during commercial breaks and even putting away the dishes are all great ways to keep your body moving. If you don’t like working out, try to stay active with friends or family. Just be sure to wear a mask and socially distance when around others. And as always, consult your doctor before beginning any exercise routine.
