Both lived to be nearly 100. They government assistance or needed a a car loan, but always drove a nice car. Grandma dressed like a million bucks. She could knit and quilt, cook, bake, clean, decorate and entertain. She could as easily sew a winter coat as a new throw pillow for the sofa. She was an elegant, wonderful lady with an eye for beauty. She single-handedly landscaped their backyard in Spokane, Wash., turned a gravel pit into a botanical garden. She never owned a pair of pants, doing everything in what she called a house dress, complete with stockings and jewelry. What a lady. by all of the things we hire people to the way that our society has evolved over the past 50 years. Were made to believe it is natural and normal to hire others to do the things we could easily do for ourselves: Bake our bread; cook our meals; clean our clothes; grow and package our produce; wash our cars; change the oil in our cars; service our appliances; mow our lawns; clean our homes; cut our hair; manicure our hands; pedicure our feet; massage our bodies; wax our brows; polish our shoes; teach our kids; clean our pools; wash our windows; sew and mend our clothes; wash, groom and walk our pets; haul our trash; and drive us to the airport. Were going through a major all stems from one four-letter word: D-E-B-T. Weve overdosed on living beyond our means. Someday, things will turn around. back to the way you were, spending to hire others to do things you really could do for yourself? Why? Do you really think that magically everything will just turn around and youll never have to be concerned about money again? What a silly way to think. Some might even call that insanity. could have socked away in the last 10 years if youd focused on preparing for the future instead of thinking of all the ways you could get others to geniuses. They were realists. They created a hefty safety net, and in doing so they found the peace and dignity of being self-reliant. No one could have ever accused them of being lazy.

30 Gabber July 14 July 20, 2011 Common Old WoodDeck Problems and Fixes Dear Pat What type of common problems repair them? -Tresa D. Dear Tresa usually looks better after it is pressure washed, if it is in bad shape, it can look even worse. One good feature of decks is most of the pieces are above ground and easily accessible for inspection and repairs. First, check the decking surface gotten any splinters in your feet from the deck, you know at least some of the boards will have to be replaced. any suspected bad areas with the tip spongy or split spots, you will have to replace those boards. Dont be too concerned that the new boards will not match the old ones already pressure washed with a bleach or other cleaning solution, the new pieces will blend in well with the old ones when you apply the sealer or stain. see any areas that look rotten, probe to install a new joist, locate it about 4 inches from the rotten one and attach it with galvanized joist hangers. You will probably notice several, if not many, of the nails have popped up and the heads are raised above the decking. The pressure washing can make this even more apparent because it will remove the weak top heads can really hurt when you hit one with a big toe or step on it with your heel. Dont just hammer the nails back down again. Once nails have become are not tight enough to keep them in the hole. They will just pull up again in a week or two, and you will have wasted your time driving them all back down. The proper method to repair nail pops is to drive the nail head slightly below the wood surface with a nail set or a punch. Drill a small hole as close to the nail head as you can. Screw a decking screw into the hole so its head overhangs the nail head. This will hold the board securely down and also keep the nail from backing out again. the condition of the stairs and handrail on the deck. These are common areas that trap dirt and debris and are not cleaned as often. This makes them a prime location for rot to begin. The steps themselves can rot, but more often, the bottoms of the stringers case, you should replace the stringers. You might as well replace the step treads at the same time.

OBSERVATION modern medicine is like the celebrated Tower of Pisa -slightly off-balance. CURTAIN CALLS On the night of Feb. 2, 1959, nine ski-hikers abandoned their camp, some clad only in underwear despite sub-zero temperatures, and walked to their deaths. Six died of hypothermia; three from unexplained injuries. When their bodies were discovered, the corpses showed no signs of struggle, though one had a fatal skull fracture, two had major chest fractures and one was missing her tongue. Tests by Soviet investigators noted that some of the hikers had been exposed to large amounts of radiation, deaths was ever determined. By Scott LafeeA Wrinkle With Time Those laugh lines may be no study out of Yale University says that the severity and distribution of facial skin wrinkles may offer clues about bone mineral density in early menopausal women. Skin and bones share common building blocks -proteins -and aging is accompanied by changes in skin and deterioration of bone quantity and quality, said Lubna Pal, an associate professor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive science who headed the study. Pal and colleagues studied a subgroup of early menopausal women within three years of their last menstrual period who are enrolled in the ongoing clinical trial. They assessed skin wrinkles at 11 locations on the face and neck using a pictorial scale. Then they measured skin rigidity at the forehead and the cheek using a device called the durometer. Skeletal mass and density were studied by dual X-ray absorptiometery and a portable heel ultrasound device. We found that deepening and worsening skin wrinkles are related to lower bone density among the study participants, Pal said. The worse the wrinkles, the lesser the bone density, and this relationship was independent of age or of factors contrast to the skin wrinkles, higher durometer scores -indicating higher skin rigidity -were related to better bone density. and physical properties of the skin are noteworthy because this may allow clinicians to identify fracture risk in postmenopausal women at a glance without depending on costly tests.
