National Prayer Day
National Prayer Day has come and gone, but the feeling lingers from our Ingleside at King Farm celebration on May 2nd. Folks are still talking, with delight and even a bit of amazement, about the variety of prayers shared from such a variety of faiths. Prayers were danced, chanted, sung. Prayers were played on flutes and drums. Prayers were recited in several languages. Across all this variation, the common theme of caring for one another, and for our planet home, was conspicuous. Guests, members and staff all enjoyed experiencing one another’s different faiths and backgrounds. We’ll do it again next year on National Prayer Day 2014, and if you’re reading this, you are welcome to join us!Read Full Entry

Washington Spirit players living at Rockville retirement community
When Robyn Gayle and Diana Matheson, teammates on the Washington Spirit pro soccer team, learned where they would live this summer, they thought someone was playing a prank.
Ingleside at King Farm did offer a furnished two-bedroom unit with granite countertops, 21 / 2 bathrooms, dual balconies and walk-in closets as large as some of their previous living quarters. It also had underground parking, an indoor pool and a fitness center. But the amenities also included water aerobics, bridge lessons and afternoon lectures such as “Politics of Aging: Medicare and Social Security.”

Ingleside Computer Club
Jo Stafford, an American pop singer once famously said, “I've got a computer, but I won't go near it.” A new club at Ingleside at King Farm is not only making computers approachable, but giving reluctant users confidence they never thought possible.
Many members of the Ingleside at King Farm (IKF) community are still working or running businesses, leading non-profits, or doing consulting work, and are aware that computers are an important tool in the workplace. And, those of our members who are retired want to learn computers for personal reasons and to stay in touch with relatives.Read Full Entry

Ingleside at King Farm starts the New Year with a full time chaplain
Ingleside at King Farm starts the New Year with a full time chaplain, Rev. Richard Thayer who is a spiritual friend to the Ingleside community members. The generosity of numerous members (who became benefactors) led to increasing Rev. Thayer’s availability to our community.
The story of how Rev. Thayer ended up at Ingleside is indicative of the way things seem to work around here. After completing an interim ministry post, Rev. Thayer mused in his 2011 Christmas letter that he was looking around for a new place to serve. A good friend who happened to live at Ingleside read the letter and urged him to apply for a new job as part time Chaplain of Ingleside at King Farm.Read Full Entry

YINGLISH Now Spoken Here!
Yinglish may be defined as Yiddish words that are used in colloquial English, such as kibitzen, a word on point, since its etymology traces the origin of the Yiddish language, i.e.: Yiddish kibitzen, from the German kiebitzen, in turn from German Kiebitz, pewit, kibitzer, from the Middle High German gībitz.
Yinglish has enjoyed a "top - down - rise" in popularity of late, here at Ingleside King Farm.Read Full Entry
