Your Home’s Maintenance

Do you have a fireplace? Whether it is a wood-burning fireplace or a gas fireplace, use it at least once a year to keep it working and free of termites, bird nests or anything else that may decide to make your chimney its home.


For plumbing maintenance, pour drain cleaner every now and then into tubs and sinks to keep water freely flowing through pipes otherwise stoppages may occur.


To avoid disease, discourage pigeons from making your property their home. Pigeon droppings have been known to cause Legionnaires Disease-a serious, potentially lethal illness.

*This Magic Cleaner Dissolves Dirt On Just About Everything:

Have you noticed your skin becoming wrinkled, especially on your arms?

Try smoothing a thin layer of Vaseline (or generic petroleum jelly with or without vitamin e and aloe) on your skin, especially after showering and drying off while your skin is still a little moist.

Wrinkles seem to magically disappear, and this product doesn’t cost anything anywhere near what the expensive brand-name moisturizers cost.

As I recall, singer and actress Doris Day recommended this years ago in order to keep skin soft and prevent unsightly wrinkles.

Recently it has come to my attention that it is better to wear sunglasses when out and about on bright, sunny days in order to protect your eyes from ultra violet light and glare.

Optometrists and ophthalmologists now suspect that cataracts, which usually require eye surgery, may be caused by years of exposure to sunlight and glare penetrating unprotected eyes.

If you require further information on this subject, please discuss this with your eye doctor.

Have you ever ordered breakfast at a restaurant and your toast arrives practically cremated?

Send that toast right back to the chef in the kitchen for bread that hasn’t been burned, because any B vitamins in that bread before it was “toasted” most likely have been destroyed.

The bottom line is, it’s very risky consuming any charred, carbonized foods because they definitely are carcinogenic.

To protect your front teeth from developing tiny cracks in the enamel, it’s better not to immediately switch from consuming something ice cold to consuming something really hot or vice versa otherwise you will run the risk of little cracks forming in your perfect front teeth.

Drastic temperature changes while consuming food and/or drink can cause this.

Let the temperature of your mouth sufficiently neutralize somewhat after eating ice cream, for example, before sipping a steaming-hot cup of coffee or cocoa.

This is advice your dentist should have told you in addition to recommending using a Water Pik.

Water Piks flush out food particles that may have accumulated down there below the gum line, not only causing bad breath but potentially causing other dental problems while being lodged there.

Do some research on these things beforehand in order to make an intelligent choice, insuring you are getting the best deal.

Many times, a salesman or business owner will try to persuade you into buying one item rather than another, simply because his commission will be higher or his profit will be better, so you can’t completely rely on a sales person’s advice no matter how sincere they may seem to be.

Do your homework to be completely satisfied with all your purchases.

Saving A Life

Hear someone choking, especially while they are eating?

Be an angel!

Immediately get up, get a cup of water and offer it to this person to help him or her clear their throat.

Better yet, always have a glass of water available in front of each person at the table. A gulp of water can make all the difference in the world when someone is choking.

Swallowing water actually can cure a choking situation. Of course, if that doesn’t work, knowing how to administer the Heimlich Method, dislodging food stuck in the throat, can literally save  someone’s life. They will be very grateful to you if something like this should happen.

Is there a teenager in your life, trying to frustrate you with attitude by answering everything you say with “So?”

“It sure is a beautiful day,” you might say.


“I’m going to the store,” you might add.


This type of thing can go on and on, ad nauseam.

At first, his or her totally unexpected two-letter curt comment can be disarming, blowing you out of the water. And since just about any sentence or comment can be trivialized with “So?”, to deal with this ornery teenager, I recommend either answering “So?” with “So!” or simply laughing out loud to disarm him. I did and it worked.
