  • Retired teachers donation
  • Combine ingredients to develop new recipes

    It’s hard to believe that as I’m typing this the weather is calling for frost the next few nights. Maybe I’m getting old, but it sure seems like time flies anymore. I can distinctly remember rolling my eyes as a child when older people would talk about time and how it seemed to fly by. Now, I’m one of those people. I guess life is funny like that. If I start reminiscing about walking to school with no shoes in three feet of snow I’ll know I’ve truly graduated. So, on to this month’s topic.

  • Safety is a key for use of generators at home

    Many households run generators during a power outage and homeowners should take extra precautions to avoid injury. Generators powered by gasoline or diesel fuel can produce potentially deadly levels of carbon monoxide and should be operated only in well-ventilated, covered, unheated areas. Never use them inside. 

    Homeowners should always practice extreme caution when using a generator to power the home.

    Make sure the generator is listed by an independent testing organization, such as Underwriters Laboratory.
