  • 1. News HABITAT LOSES DEAR FRIEND, BOARD ATTORNEY Long time Habitat for Humanity of Utah County Board Attor- ney and dear friend, Don McCandless, passed away unexpectedly this past Sunday. Don generously served on the Habitat Board of Directors for over six years and gave an immeasurable amount of his time and professional expertise to support the Habitat staff and partner families and forward Habitat’s mission in the community. He was an amazing man with a kind heart and will be missed tremendously. Our love November and prayers go out to his wife, Karen, and his family during this sad time. Funeral services will be this Friday. 2012 A NEW BEGINNING! HABITAT TO CUT RIBBON ON PG HOME! Habitat for Humanity of Utah County will be helping to give a new beginning to the Brandon family HABBITAT FOR HUMANITY OF UTAH COUNTY this Thursday, November 1, 2012, when they cut the ribbon on the familys new home in Pleasant Hammer Time Grove.

Home Maintenance Tips (www.weather.com) Winter Home Protection Tips While you cant change the weather, you can minimize some of winters biggest threats to your home. Heavy snow accumulation can pose a threat to your home or business -- both as it builds up and as it melts. The three most important things to do are: • Watch for snow accumulation on the leeward (downwind) side of a higher-level roof, where blowing snow will collect. For safe removal that wont endanger you or damage your roof, consult a roofing contractor for a re- ferral. • Remove snow from basement stairwells, window wells and all walls. Melting snow can lead to water damage and moisture intrusion. • Keep your attic well ventilated to maintain a temperature close to that of the outdoors to minimize the risk of ice dams forming. A warm attic melts snow on the roof, causing water to run down and refreeze at the roofs edge, where its much cooler. If ice builds up and blocks water from draining, water is forced under the roof5 covering and into your attic or down the inside walls of your house.
  • 6. Water intrusion and flood damage from melting snow and ice can threaten homes and businesses, but you can6 take these steps to help minimize the potential damage. Immediately after the threat of physical danger has passed: • Make sure the building is structurally safe to enter or reoccupy. • Turn off electrical power. Do not use electricity until it is safe to do so. • Ensure that natural gas sources are safely secured. • Secure the exterior to prevent further water intrusion. This can include boarding up broken windows, making temporary roof repairs, sealing cracks or tacking down plastic sheeting against open gaps in walls or roofs. When its safe to begin cleanup: • Disconnect all electronics/electrical equipment and move it to a safe, dry location. • Remove as much standing water as possible from inside the building. • Begin to remove water-damaged materials immediately. • Ventilate the home as best you can with fans and/or dehumidifiers. • Contact a water extraction company, if necessary, for assistance. By taking immediate action, you will reduce the amount of damage and increase the chance of salvaging usable materials. Youll also reduce the amount of rust, rot, mold and mildew that may develop, and lower the likelihood that the water will lead to structural problems. Ice dams are an accumulation of ice at the lower edge of a sloped roof. When interior heat melts the snow, water can run down and refreeze at the roofs edge, where its much cooler. If the ice builds up and blocks water from draining off the roof, water is forced under the roof covering and into your attic or down the inside walls of your house. To help reduce the risk of ice dams: • Make sure your gutters are clear of leaves and debris. • Keep the attic well ventilated so snow doesnt melt and refreeze on the roofs edge. • Make sure the attic floor is well insulated to minimize the amount of heat rising through the attic from within the house. Bursting pipes occur when frozen water causes a pressure buildup between the ice blockage and the closed fau- cet. Pipes in attics, crawl spaces and outside walls are particularly vulnerable to extreme cold. To keep water in your pipes from freezing: • Fit exposed pipes with insulation sleeves or wrapping to slow heat transfer. • Seal cracks and holes in outside walls and foundations near water pipes with caulking. • Keep cabinet doors open to allow warm air to circulate around pipes. • Keep a slow trickle of water flowing through faucets connected to pipes that run through an unheated or unpro- tected space. Make Your House a Healthy Home! (EPA) How do you keep lead out of your home? Wipe up any paint chips or visible dust with a wet sponge or rag, and keep your home clean and dust free. HOUSEHOLD HINT (www.hints-n-tips.com) Keep your socks together in the wash and dry process. Get some safety pins and keep them by the washing machine for your socks. Pin the toes of the socks together so you save time matching them up after the laundry process. Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action. - W.J. Cameron6
  • 7. 7 Save Energy (www.we-energies.com) HEATING • Purchase an energy-efficient furnace. Select an energy-efficient furnace model by looking for an AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) rating of 90 percent or greater. • Maintain the furnace. Clean your furnace filters monthly or replace if necessary. A clean unit runs more effi- ciently. • Use natural gas for heating. Consider switching to a natural gas heating system. Natural gas is less expensive than other heating fuels. • Use insulation. Insulate your attic to an R-value of 38 for a gas-heated home and 50 for an electrically heated home; your walls to an R-value of 19; and your sill box (upper portion of your basement walls) to an R-value of 10. Proper insulation allows you to use less energy to keep your home warm. • Insulate around windows and doors. Weather-strip and/or caulk all areas of noticeable leaks around windows and doors. Removable caulking is a good option for windows that you open in summer but not in winter. • Change your thermostat settings. In the winter, set your thermostat at 60° F when you are sleeping or gone. Set the thermostat to 68° F when you are at home. This can save 10 percent or more on your heating bills every winter. • Turn down the thermostat when away. If you are going to be away for an extended period of time, turn your thermostat down to save energy but never lower than 40° F. If you have delicate houseplants, keep the setting at 50° F or higher. • Let the sun in. The sun’s energy can have a noticeable effect on the temperature in your home, especially from windows facing south and west. Keep window shades and drapes open during winter months to let in the sun’s radiant heat. • Warm with a space heater. A portable space heater can heat a single room without using your furnace to heat the whole house. Using a space heater to heat all or most of your home costs more. Always follow the manu- facturer’s safety instructions when operating space heaters. • Use the fireplace sparingly. Many older natural fireplaces are inefficient and draw more heat out of the house than they produce. Close the flue to eliminate drafts when not in use. • Consider fireplace inserts, doors or covers. If you use your fireplace often, consider these products to help re- duce the heat loss in your home when using the fireplace. You save money on your heating bills while still be- ing able to enjoy your fireplace. • Control air flow. If you are building a home, replacing heating equipment or remodeling, talk to your heating contractor about the options available to ensure proper air flow. Controlling air flow into and out of your home ensures energy efficiency, comfort and low energy costs. • Purchase Energy Star windows. When installing new windows, select, at a minimum, double-paned (double- glazed) thermal windows. With existing single-paned windows, make sure you use storm windows during the winter months. SAVING TIP (The Simple Dollar) Swap books, music, and DVDs cheaply on the internet via services like PaperBackSwap. You can very easily swap the books and CDs and DVDs you’ve grown bored with via the internet with oth- ers. Just use sites like PaperBackSwap, clean out your media collection, and trade them with others online. The best part? You’ll get a flood of new books (or CDs or DVDs) to enjoy, mailed right to you – for free. He who thanks but with the lips Thanks but in part; The full, the true Thanksgiving Comes from the heart. - J.A. Shedd7
  • 8. 8 SAVE STRATEGIES (www.mnn.com) 10 elegant, inexpensive, homemade holiday gift ideas Lets face it: there are plenty of temptations to overspend and overbuy when it comes to finding gifts. This year, with an uncertain economy, theres never been more reason to step back and take a serious look at how we approach gift shopping. Instead of loading up that charge card at the mall, why not take a greener approach and try handmade gifts this season? While it takes a bit more planning, making gifts at home is a guaranteed way to save money and re- sources. And theres no better way to express your love and creativity. Weve rounded up 10 sure-fire handmade gift ideas to get you started. Most can be done for under $20. Many of these easy projects can be adapted for Valentines Day, Mothers Day, or anytime a thoughtful handmade gift is appropriate. Try a few — and put some warmth and personality back into your holiday gift-giving! Food gifts 1. Home-canned fruits and vegetables. With farmers markets still brimming with seasonal produce, its a great time to be doing this. Home canning is an easy-to-learn skill that makes thoughtful gifts — and can really stretch your household budget. 2. Holiday baked goods. Its really hard to go wrong with this: pumpkin, nut and banana breads are synonymous with the holidays, are easy to make, and can even be frozen. So are regular breads, cookies and cakes. You can dress up baking by being creative about their containers. This also gives you an opportunity to put recycling to work. As an example, try nut bread in an old coffee can. Grease the sides, but substitute sugar for flour along the can walls. Your bread will emerge with a crisp caramel glaze. Decorate the can with wrapping paper scraps, replace the bread, and add a ribbon— and youre in business. 3. Heat-and-serve frozen casseroles and entrees. Freeze-ahead meals take some planning to put together, but they can be as ornate as you want them to be and are a wonderful convenience for whoever receives them. Freeze them in recyclable aluminum warming pans — or buy some quality oven glassware for gifts that will be used many years into the future. 4. Cookies in a jar. Not the cookies themselves, but all the dry ingredients. Layer them in a Mason jar for an at- tractive presentation. Decorate the jar with fabric and ribbon, attaching the recipe with a bit of string (bonus points if you reuse the front half of old Christmas cards for this). These make great teacher gifts, or can be com- bined with other items in a gift basket. Youll find plenty of variations at All Recipes. 5. For the coffee lover: homemade biscotti or chocolate spoons in a handmade mug. This is quite elegant, and has a long after-holiday life. Hit the holiday craft fairs and find a large hand-thrown coffee mug. Youre after something colorful and substantial. Fill it with individually wrapped biscotti or chocolate spoons. Theyre both simple to prepare. The spoons are commonly done with plastic disposables. Shop around and find an inexpen- sive metal teaspoon set, instead. It helps to refrigerate them beforehand. Craft gifts 1. Jars of homemade bath salts. As luxurious as they are inexpensive. Typical recipes are Epsom or sea salt, bak- ing soda, food coloring (use natural varieties), glycerin (vegetable-based) and your favorite aromatic poils. Once again, its all about presentation. Decorate the jars — and be sure to list the essential oils used, to pre- vent possible allergy issues. 2. Homemade holiday wreaths. Living wreaths are an impressive and welcome holiday gift. Theyre not difficult to make — all you need is some evergreen boughs, assorted greenery and wire. In a couple hours, youll have several wreaths that would easily retail between $70 and $100 if you bought them from a commercial florist. The beautiful Heavy Petal has excellent step-by-step, illustrated directions to get you underway. 3. Buy vintage floral pattern teacups at secondhand stores and plant ornamental bulbs in them. Great for small gifts or holiday party favors. Heres a fun variation: find old mugs with herbal print designs and plant chives, oregano, rosemary or basil. Decorate with a bit of ribbon and a card describing how to care for the plant. 4. Gift baskets. These are a wonderful catch-all for the holiday season: a real expression of your creativity and the personality of the recipient. Start with a quality Fair Trade basket, some handmade ribbon — and set your imagination free. This is a great way to bundle handmade soaps and herbal cachets, potpourri, jellies, organic candies and treats and small craft items. 5. Reusable fabric shopping bags. With attention to the millions of disposable plastic shopping bags which end up in landfills and the environment each year, reusable bags have never been hotter. All you need are basic sew- ing skills and some repurposed or recycled fabric. The folks at Morsbags have patterns and easy directions for making roomy shopping bags that will last for years. You can easily make a dozen unique gifts in the course of8 an evening — and its more fun with friends!
  • 9. 9 BE GOOD TO YOUR HEALTH (www.livestrong.com) HOW TO AVOID OVEREATING ON THANKSGIVING Thanksgiving is all about giving gratitude for everything you have and appreciating the people in your life. Families come together to celebrate each other, give thanks and have a big feast together. Traditional Thanksgiving meal favorites are turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, sweet potato pie, pumpkin pie, rolls and alcohol. Thanksgiving dinner can easily spoil a diet or just leave you feeling stuffed, bloated and unable to partake in the merriment of the holi- days. Thanksgiving also marks the beginning of the holiday season, so overeating on this day can set you on course to gain excess weight throughout the next month or two. Step 1—Eat a healthy, sensible breakfast and lunch. Many people choose to starve themselves through the day so they can have more room for the scrumptious meal. This will lead to binge eating. Instead, have a small, healthy breakfast and lunch. Drink water throughout the day to keep you from overeating or consuming empty calories from soda or alcohol. This will help you feel more satisfied so you wont overeat at dinner. Step 2—Chew your meal slowly. Thanksgiving is the ideal time to sit down, eat your meal slowly and relish every bite. You will feel fuller faster, which will help you avoid overeating. Food is a wonderful part of Thanksgiving, but so is spending time with family and friends. Put down the fork for a few minutes, join the conversation, and you will eat less without noticing it. Step 3—Use smaller plates. Depending on where you go for Thanksgiving it may be impossible, but if you are the host or your family doesnt mind, consider grabbing a smaller plate for your meal. You will feel like you are eating more than your actually are and will be less likely to overeat. Step 4—Create a tiny, portioned smorgasbord. Between all of the delectable food, your great aunt asking if you tried her pie yet, and all of the goodies being passed your way, it is easy to be tempted to eat everything. Instead of having a big meal of turkey and potatoes and then trying everything else on top of it, have a little bit of everything. On most days, you should try to eat more vegetables and fruits than anything else, but on Thanksgiving, make your goal to avoid overeating. Allow yourself a spoonful or two of everything you love, pass over what you dont. You will end up feeling satisfied and will get to try everything you want without stuffing yourself silly.
