Family Matters: Making Noise


Cats tend to have a mind of their own and are typically stubborn. If your cat is doing something that you do not like, for example, jumping on the kitchen cabinets or scratching the couch, making a noise to startle them, not scare them; will make your cat stop. With repetitive action your cat will soon learn not to jump on the cabinet or scratch the couch.

Healthy Living: The Changing of the Seasons


As the temperature starts to cool, we start thinking of all the great things that come with the changing of the seasons.  Something that might not pop into your head with these other great things is Cold and Flu season. 

Here are some healthy living “Do’s and Don’ts” to help you stay healthy during this year’s cold and flu season:

Don’t: If you sneeze, do not sneeze into your hands, and if you do, wash and or disinfect them.  I remember as a child my mother telling me to cover my mouth when I cough or sneeze, and I am not telling my little one the same. A healthy living trend as of late actually suggests sneezing into the elbow to help prevent the spread of germs when you touch surfaces that others might touch as well.

Another Common sense factor to staying healthy is avoiding touching surfaces and or sharing things like drinks with someone who may or may not be sick. By watching out for the common signs and onsets of a cold or the flu, you can see where and when to sanitize and disinfect.

Do: WASH YOUR HANDS. This is especially important if you think you have come in contact with any flu or cold bacteria. Washing your hands in Warm water for 10-15 seconds will help prevent the spread of bacteria and increase your chances at staying healthy.

You can always carry around disinfectant hand sanitizer for yourself or your children as a fast alternative to washing your hands, or if the option is not readily available!

Product Talk: Pumpkins


Pumpkins make fantastic decorations for the fall. You can carve them for Halloween to make unique or traditional jack-o-lanterns or set them out until Thanksgiving for traditional decorations. If you plan on carving pumpkins, carve the pumpkin right before Halloween or your pumpkin will rot too quickly.  When carving the pumpkin, save the seeds and bake them for a fall treat. You can make a variety of different flavors of seeds. Using cumin and cayenne pepper would make a Tex-Mex seed while using garlic salt, Italian seasoning, and parmesan cheese to make Italian seeds.

Oven-Roasted Pumpkin Seeds:

While carving the pumpkin, put seeds into a bowl. Wash seeds and remove any pulp. Pre-heat oven to 400°F. Place seeds onto a baking sheet. In a microwave bowl, melt butter and pour over seeds. Sprinkle your favorite seasonings over seeds. Bake seeds for 10 -15 minutes or until brown; stirring occasionally.
