 1. Clean caulking with rubbing alcohol.

We found this information at It's a great piece of well written information!

The calendar we know today is actually based on the ancient Roman calendar. It was invented in the 8th century BC by a king named Numa Pompilius.

There’s a rumour that the reason why February is the shortest month of the year is because another king named Augustus Caesar stole a day from February to add to the month named after him — August. However, the real reason February is shorter begins with the fact that the first calendar was only 10 months long.

Farming was a big deal in ancient Rome. Roman farmers harvested wheat, spelt and barley which were basically all the ingredients to make their favourite food, bread! Farming was so important to Romans that King Pompilius didn’t even bother to name the time in between harvests. The calendar year began in March and ended in December. Everything else was just called winter!

However, with the calendar only being 10 months long, it began to fall out of sync with the Lunar calendar which tracked the phases of the moon. The Lunar calendar had 355 days a year and 12 lunar cycles (or months) while the Roman calendar only accounted for 10.

Confused yet?

So were the Romans! They didn’t know whether to follow the 12-month Lunar calendar or the new 10-month calendar invented by King Pompilius! To solve this problem, the king added two more months after December and called them January and February.

Thanks for the info!

Crock Pot Cordon Blue Soup Recipe from Taste of Home

Yes Please!!!


  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 cups cubed French bread
  • SOUP:
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 celery rib, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup white wine or additional reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 8 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, cubed
  • 1-1/2 cups Swiss cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 pound diced rotisserie chicken
  • 1/2 pound diced deli ham


  • For croutons, preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, mix melted butter, garlic powder and pepper. Add bread cubes; toss to coat. Transfer croutons to a 15x10x1-in. baking pan; bake, stirring every 5 minutes, until golden brown, 15-20 minutes. Cool in pan on a wire rack.
  • Meanwhile, in a 4- or 5-qt. slow cooker, combine the first 5 soup ingredients; pour in broth. Cook, covered, on low about 2 hours or until vegetables are tender.
  • Increase slow-cooker heat setting to high. Mix flour and water until smooth; whisk flour mixture into broth. Cook until thickened, 30-40 minutes. Stir in wine. Whisk in cheeses until melted. Add chicken and ham; heat through. Serve with croutons.
  • Freeze option: Before adding croutons, freeze cooled soup in freezer containers. Freeze croutons separately. To use, partially thaw soup in refrigerator overnight. Heat soup through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally; add broth or water if necessary. While soup is heating, thaw croutons at room temperature; sprinkle over soup.

The last thing anyone needs to worry about when a fire occurs is understanding their insurance policy.  

"Knowing what is included AND excluded within your policy is key in understanding what you are AND are not covered for when it comes to Recovery."

"NFA can be of the greatest benefit, if involved from the onset of the claim, assisting the insurance company establish initial reserves for their cash flow purposes, as well as determining the course of action that should be taken in properly measuring all aspects of the claims."
