    Thought for the week - Two Principles for A Happy Life: 1. Use things not people. 2. Love people not things.

    I hope everyone took advantage of the nice cool and breezy temperatures we had the last several days. It was just right and was my cup of tea of perfect weather. I can’t believe August is here and it’s time for school to start. I hope all goes well for first day of school.

    Thinking of you wishes go out to Jerry Buckles, Helen Duncan, William Wilkerson, Harlis and Bessie LaFollette.

  • Save on energy costs of Home Lighting, check out LED bulbs

    As the world strives to become more energy efficient, many are switching the type of bulbs used in the home from traditional incandescent to light emitting diodes commonly known as LEDs.

    According to the Consumer Federation of America, the average electricity cost of a single 60-watt equivalent incandescent bulb is around $5 per year, while the energy costs of a comparable LED are $1 dollar per year. Couple this with the fact that incandescent bulbs will need to be replaced every one or two years and LEDs should last around ten years or longer.
