Having a dad/step dad/primary-male-figure fully engaged in a child’s life is invaluable. Men bring a different perspective to kid’s lives …not just that ice cream is okay for dinner perspective (and don’t pretend like we don’t know all know that, ha)…, but in all facets – emotional, mental and physical. Give props to the special dads you know, today, they are helping to shape our future.
Happy Father’s Day to my hubby, arguably the best dad in the world! 😉
Apparently you lose about one mile per gallon or more for each 300 pounds.
My intent for this blog is to suggest positive change, so today, in honor of anyone you know who may be or has been afflicted with cancer, consider contributing through time, money or support to a cancer research foundation.
In honor of you, Paul.
Great tid bit I found from Real Simple… according to Chris Grundler of the National Vehicle and Fuel Emissions Laboratory in Ann Arbor, MI, “Fuel economy suffers at speeds higher than 60 and drops like a stone above 70.” Richard Beard, an associate professor at Utah State University who researches fuel efficiency added “Slowing from 70 to 55 can increase your miles per gallon by 15 percent.”
It is also suggested that every six months you take the filter out and wash it with hot soapy water and a brush (i.e. toothbrush or other)…. esp if you use dryer sheets (there can be a non-visible film that collects).
Helps save the life of your dryer and save energy and money while your dryer runs more efficiently.
As mentioned the other day, buy rechargeable, but for any batteries that have already reached their life span, make sure you find proper disposal for them. If you don’t know of a place, you can Google it online.
Saves on fuel with less trips to the store and saves in packaging waste. Win Win.
I am off to Costco today…. (as well, Whole Foods has a great bulk section of dried items, and as always, the Farmer’s Market is the best for any bulk amount you need).
Every several years I like to pull out this list to see what I have done and what new ones I would like to add. Some are small and others take quite a bit to achieve. You can do anything you set your mind to.
You may not be able to focus on all 10 things at once. Try less than 3 at a time, just make sure you are living the life you want to live.
Feel good about yourself life and be thankful, life is short.
They cost more, but can be charged usually more than 100 times, which brings your overall cost down considerably when compare to disposable batteries. Even more importantly, less batteries in the landfill.
When you dispose of your batteries, don’t forget to take them to a proper disposal site.
