  • Thoughts for a New Year

    Have you ever driven on an unfamiliar road in a very dense fog?  It was not a very enjoyable experience, was it?

    You were tense and nervous not knowing what was just a few feet in front of you.

    We could compare this experience to where we are today as we have entered a new year.  2017 is cloaked in mystery. We do not know what is out there in the days ahead.  Someone referred to these as “the unopened tomorrows” that only time will reveal.

  • New Years Resolution number one

    Weight Watchers or joining a Gym should not be your only New Year Resolution. How about organizing our digital life? I have spent some 45 years in the computer field, working with end users nearly the entire time. If I know anything, it is that the inside of our computer tends to looks like our real-life - messy.

    The benefits of organizing your files into folders, removing programs you don’t use anymore and updating those you do, and cleaning up your desktop can go a long way toward making your computer experience more bearable and productive.

  • Humidify your home in the winter

    Winter weather in Kentucky tends to present challenges in the form of snow, ice and freezing temperatures. What isn’t talked about often is the discomfort weather can cause inside the home.

    UK Extension Professor for Environmental Control Systems, Robert Fehr, shares this information about dealing with humidity levels in the home. The itch that plagues many people during winter can be the result of inside air that does not contain adequate moisture. Low humidity levels can cause high levels of discomfort including dry skin and stuffy sinuses.

  • Life expectancy did what?

    A new year is a time resolutions, it brings about a need in people to want to change things and do things differently. A new year is kind of like starting over. The unfortunate truth about resolution is that they rarely stick. Probably because we are creatures of habit, habits are hard to break, healthy habits are even harder to create. Now before you get up in arms I’m not telling anyone they need to eat their veggies, but I recently read an article on NPR’s website that shocked me. It was about the life expectancy in the US dropping for the first time since 1993.
