Computers lessons at the IPC
This Tuesday sees the end of our computer lessons here at the IPC. For the last few months a dedicated bunch of undergraduate students from Boston College have been sharing tips, knowledge and laughs with our seniors. All have really enjoyed the lessons. A huge thanks to the BC students for sharing their time and such a wonderful experience with us!
Get Happy with the IPC
Studies show that America's happiest people get at least two hours a day of interaction with friends or family. If you proactively choose the right social network, bliss and happiness can be contagious. Harvard University research found that with each happy friend we add to our social circle, our own happiness grows by 9 percent. For each unhappy friend, our happiness declines by 7 percent. So find people you like, and commit to routines that put you in contact with them regularly. All the best people are at IPC coffee groups! Mondays in Brighton at the Veronica Smith Centre from 1pm and Wednesdays at the IPC in Dorchester from 10am. Come find some more happiness, baked goodies and hot Irish tea!!
