The 10th annual UHY Cares and DMGC
Texas Holdem event was held on Thursday, February 16 at the Iroquois
Lodge in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. This was the largest turnout of
players yet. Steve McCarty of UHY would
like to thank the 170 players, along with all of the volunteers,
workers, countless donors and sponsors who all had a big hand in
helping to make the evening so memorable all while raising nearly
$30,000 for UHY Cares, a charity that gives back
to the community, including helping individuals going through personal
emergencies or hardships. UHY Cares has provided assistance to
hundreds of charities and families and continues to grow this list
every year. Congratulations
to Brian Inglis who took home the winners bracelet, but congrats to
everyone who made this a great event.
DAILY DEVOTIONS FOR LENT
each day with Lenten
Reflections 2017. The link on this page
will take you to a booklet containing
meditations by members of four church
communities in Grand Rapids, Mich.:
Bethlehem Lutheran, the Cathedral of St.
Andrew, Heartside Ministry, and St. Mark's
Episcopal. The Catholic Information Center
in Grand Rapids made an e-flip book version
of the devotional. Have a blessed Lent.
Sincerely, Mike McCarty, booklet coordinator.
Hope the new year finds everyone in good spirits. It is time to
update the group on what will be happening this
year and February is as good a time as any. Since
the snow will be flying and with the temps below
zero what better time to digest the 5
pages of information which are the rules.
In keeping with Mike W's progressive philosophy there have been
some updates to this years outing.
1) Continued redistribution of the the entry fees so there is no
top 1%. We will continue to try and make the games
so everyone puts in $43 and everyone wins $43. We
all walk away with participation trophies.
2) Improvement in our golf and total self esteem. We want to ensure
that no one is subjected to any conversations on
the course or at the bar they feel are
inappropriate or debates that they do not want to
hear because they disagree with the other person.
To accommodate this each condo will be provide
with a package that includes the following:
> Coloring book to channel their inner child
> Stuffed toy so they can be comforted by a non
> A game to relieve the mental tension
associated with being around me
> Directions to a safe zone which will be
located in Kentucky so by time you get there and
back "THE GULLER" will be over
Hope these improvements meet everyone's basic rights to free golf,
free golf clubs and free alcohol. Any questions
contact your attorney. Enjoy!!!!!!!
second-grader Luke McCarty has a cool, new haircut -- and it looks
like a return to the McCarty boys' haircuts of the 1950s and '60s.
Back then, home barber Jean McCarty gave her boys two 'dos: a brush
cut in summer and a longer version in winter with a pomp. The winter
cut required a comb. "Looks great," Mike McCarty said of his
grandson's summer-style haircut. "Do they still make Butch
MCCARTY METRO PIGSKIN PICKEM
season of Pigskin Pickem finished with the Super Bowl 51 in
early February. Over 30 people competed this season from
September to February picking the winners of each weeks'
games. Congratulations to regular season champ Brad M, and
the overall champion Plageuis who came from behind (just
as the New England Patriots did) during the Super Bowl to
complete the victory. Thank you for everyone who
participated this year, and we hope to make it even bigger
and better next year.
METRO ARTS, BEATS, & EATS
month, the Clinton Township McCarty's had some adventures
in dining, music, and shows. On Valentine's Day, Kelly &
Margaret were joined by friends and Metro subscribers Mo,
Bev, Jon, and Carol on their annual fine dining adventure
to the Castle Of White. All three couples offered
compliments to the chef.
Kelly & Margaret also
saw come great shows in Detroit this past month. The
couple went to the Detroit Opera House to see "The
Lion King". It was a great show, with wonderful music.
The couple also did some dining in Greektown (OPA!), and
even won some money at the Greektown Casino (well, at
least Margaret did).
The following week, Grandma
& Grandpa Editor took Olivia down to the beautiful Fox
Theatre for "Sesame Street Live". We were all
singing with the cast. It was a really good show, and I am going
to name-drop a bit as we saw and met all the stars
including Big Bird, Bert, Ernie, Grover, Telly, Abby,
Oscar, The Count, and of course Elmo. It was a very fun
and exhausting afternoon, as seen by the final picture of
Olivia, still dreaming she is Abby Cadabby.

LONG WORK IN ENGLAND
flew to London Heathrow and taxi'd to my hotel in Luton, England.
Taxi'd back down to London to scalp a ticket to the Arsenal - Hull
City Game (the only football match that would happen in the area
while I was there). Grabbed a burger and few brews at a bar near
the stadium, an Arsenal-fan only bar. After the 2-0 win, I
walked around downtown near the Thames River and saw the Old
Bailey and a few other tourist attractions. I
worked 4 days in Luton, England at the Vauxhall office, which flew
by. I was there to do Knowledge Transfer sessions for our
Infotainment platform. My other
nights were exploring the bars around London, trying to figure out
the Overground routes, walking around downtown by the Thames
River, seeing the Tower of London and the Tower Bridge, having a
few cocktails on the roof of a hotel's sky lounge (which is 12
stories up Ė a skyscraper for London), hitting a ball-pit bar
(would highly recommend), and plenty more. The British Museum was
also amazing and I spent 4 hours just walking around checking
took a flight to Amsterdam where I strolled around the canals
mostly, took a bike tour around the city, checked out the
nightlife, stayed in a hostel and caught a cold from one of my
roommates. A great time, I just wish my immune system had kept me
safe. A beautiful city!
OF WORK IN MAINZ / RUSSELSCHEIM / FRANKFURT
this point, I took a train from Amsterdam to Mainz, Germany. This
is when my cold really kicked in and I was just trying to keep it
together. I worked for four days to ensure the new version of
software was working with our Infotainment vehicles. Outside
of work, a Mardi-Gras type of celebration was happening this week.
Most of the time I stayed in and just ordered room service, so
this was pretty uneventful. Thursday night was my last night
there, so a few coworkers and I went out in Mainz to enjoy some
brews and go wild. Thursday was ladies night -where men go out and
wear ties, and women go out with scissors. A woman can cut the tie
of a man, but she must give him a kiss and a shot of alcohol. I
didnít get to see a lot of this type of action, but Pat showed
up in a cheetah print suit and we hit a few bars where we drank,
sang unrecognizable songs, and had conga lines going throughout
the bar. I woke up early for the 9 hour flight back home.
Here are some of the recent travel destinations from our

DATELINE: FRASER, MICHIGAN
Husband and wife
Jim and Mary Thompson were shopping at Meijer. Jim picked up a case
of Budweiser and put it in the cart. "What do you think you're
doing?" asked Mary. "They're on sale, only $10 for 24
cans" he replied. "Put them back, we can't afford
them", demanded Mary. They carried on with their shopping. A few
aisles farther on, Mary picked up a $20 jar of face cream and put
it in the basket. "What do you think you're doing?" asked
Jim. "It's my face cream. It makes me look beautiful,"
replied Mary. Jim retorted, "So does 24 cans of
Budweiser and it's half the price." That's Jim on Aisle 5...
