Let It SNOW!! READ!!


Before you cuddle up around the Fireplace this Winter!! Be Cautious!!

Source:  www.nfpa.com















When enjoying your fireplace, stove or insert, it’s important to remember these basic safety precautions:

• Fireplaces, stoves and inserts, become hot during operation whether they burn gas, pellets or wood. Keep clothing, furniture, draperies and other flammable materials a safe distance away.
 
• Fireplace glass and other surfaces get extremely HOT and can cause burns if touched. Factory-provided protective safety screens, or aftermarket free-standing screens or barriers help to reduce the risk of serious burns, as they can prevent skin from coming into direct contact with the glass or fire. However, screens also retain heat so touching them is not advised.
 
• Keep children away from fireplaces, stoves and inserts. All parts of these appliances get extremely hot and should be treated with caution. Supervise children and pets to ensure they stay a safe distance away.
 
• Fireplaces, stoves and inserts (and their surrounding material) will remain hot for a period of time after being turned off, so caution should be used at all times.

WAYS TO RECYCLE LEAVES

Mulch
Leaves make great mulch.

Compost
Adding leaves along with grass, sticks, pine straw and a little soil to your compost pile will result in a high quality compost rich in nitrogen that is ideal for use in your vegetable garden or for shrub and tree plantings.

Community Recycling
If you are not a gardener or do much yard work, you should consider offering your bagged leaves to neighbors who use mulch and compost. You can also contact your local county or township to see if they will remove and compost your leaves at a municipal facility for redistribution in the community.

Educational Uses
"Fall is always an opportunity for education for kids. "You can create leaf collections and press them into collages. They're extremely easy to preserve. Press them in newspapers so that the moisture is absorbed and they dry flat." This is an ideal way to label and identify the leaves of specific trees. An even simpler alternative is to create a digital photo collection of colorful fall leaves.

Cell phones and computers themselves are not to blame for cyber bullying. Social media sites can be used for positive activities, like connecting kids with friends and family, helping students with school, and for entertainment. But these tools can also be used to hurt other people. Whether done in person or through technology, the effects of bullying are similar.
Kids who are cyber-bullied are more likely to:

  • Use alcohol and drugs
  • Skip school
  • Use alcohol and drugs
  • Experience in-person bullying
  • Be unwilling to attend school
  • Receive poor grades
  • Have lower self-esteem
  • Have more health problems
