Since carnivals aren't allowed by NYS Governor, let's support the local fire depts. Look them up online, some have donation pages or send them a check for what you would spend if they had it. Carnivals and parades are a way for the fire dept. to raise much needed funds, don't let them down. Thank you.

There are many foods on the DO NOT FEED TO YOUR PET list according to the ASPCA and Wishbone.   As tempting as it may be, as much as your pet begs, it is not worth the risk when it comes to certain foods that are known to be bad for your pet.  Stick to the treats intended for your pet.

Take a little time now to do some repairs and save yourself the likelihood of a larger repair situation come spring.

Prepare for the project by having all the supplies on hand. You will need to purchase a concrete repair mix. Choose an epoxy compound or a latex patching material for cracks that are an eighth of an inch wide or smaller. Choose a mortar mix for larger cracks. Gather your chisel, a wire brush, a putty knife and your protective gear from your garage.

Now let the fun begin.

Prepare the cracked or damaged area first by using your chisel and chipping away any loose or crumbling concrete. You don't want to apply your repair mix on top of damage you want to remove and clean the damaged area and then fill it in. When you are done 'cleaning' use your wire brush to remove any additional loose material. Rinse all particles and dust out of the area. Follow the directions on your repair mix or mortar container.  Using your putty knife (if need be you can also use a trowel) fill the cracks. Force the repair mix all the way into the cracks and smooth evenly with your existing concrete.

What kid doesn't like pizza? Here's a back to school idea that will be sure to be a big lunch box hit. You can make it ahead, freeze, in the mornings put in the lunchbox and by lunch time they're thawed and ready to eat! Easy morning for you and happy lunch for them!

Pizza Quesadilla 

You probably know how to make a quesadilla but just in case...

Spray the bottom of a non-stick skillet with cooking spray and preheat. When the pan is hot place a Flour Tortilla in the pan. Spread on a few tablespoons of sauce. Add a layer of Pepperoni. Top with shredded cheese. Top with the 2nd Flour Tortilla. Let it brown then flip it over. When the inside is melted and both sides are browned take out and cool completely. Cut in quarters and wrap individually and tightly with plastic wrap then put in freezer bag and freeze.

Where to get Kanberra Gel is a very popular question here at  And for a very good reason.  Kanberra Gel is an all-natural, proprietary blend of Pure Australian Tea Tree Oils.   One of the reasons Kanberra Gel is so popular is because the natural antiseptic properties of the oils become airborne through an evaporative release and as the air circulates and lands on the source (the mold, mildew, etc.), Kanberra Gel® begins neutralizing and eliminating problems, and associated odors, on contact. Here's the part everyone does so naturally, with no chemicals. 

So where do you get it?  Indoor Air Professionals.  

Visit Indoor Air Professional's online shop to purchase Kanberra Gel.  

They also offer Kanberra Spray, Wipes, Combo Sets and Gift Sets!
