What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear Veteran’s Day? I know for me, it was the day the banks and schools were closed. I never stopped and thought about it, until a few years ago when I actually took the time to speak to a Veteran. I was under the assumption that all Veterans do not want to talk about their past. That is simply not true. A lot of people enjoy talking about their service and educating others. On November 11th, all Americans are invited to participate in the observance of a two-minute moment of silence. Taking the time to pause quietly and join your thoughts with thousands of other Americans is a great way to ensure you remember the purpose of Veterans Day. The moment of silence will being at 1:11pm central standard time. There are more than 19 million military veterans living in the United States today and there are things you can do to honor them. Ensure the next generation understands. You might be amazed at what the younger generation does and doesn't know. You can help by setting an example and taking every chance to educate and explain historic events or introducing them to a veteran in your community.
Operation Gratitude is an amazing organization that gives you a chance to give back and honor our military. Each year they give people the opportunity to do a Halloween Candy Give-Back. They include leftover Halloween candy in care packages that are sent. Go to their website to find out how to help and the guidelines sending candy.


Change your clock, Change your battery

Change your clock, Change your battery

This month we celebrate National Fire Prevention Month! I had been racking my brain on what to write about when a story literally fell in my lap. My coworker, who shall remain nameless. (Rhymes with Richelle) had an incident recently in her home. She, like me, is very anal about being prepared in case of emergencies. She has a smoke alarm in every room in her house. You can never be too careful. So, my friend, put her baby down for bed and they were both sleeping soundly for about an hour. All of a sudden she was woken by the smoke alarm. She leaped up and scanned the house. Thankfully it was a false alarm and the smoke alarm quit after a minute. The baby still sleeping soundly, she went back to bed. Five minutes late, it went off again. Annoyed, she waited and it stopped again. The cycle repeated until about 2am. By this point, it wouldn't stop. As the alarms were wired into the house, she couldn't just take out the batteries. To give you a visual, mom holding the baby as they both cried. Needless to say, they were both tired and cranky the next day, emphasis on cranky. She did get the alarm to stop after some time, but this is good reminder to us all. It is very important to service your smoke alarms. It may seem like overkill to check them and change batteries every year, but better to be safe. Smoke alarms draw a very low amount of power, then to be loud, they need a good strong supply. If your home is on fire in the middle of the night, you want those alarms to SCREAM at you. Here are some quick tips about servicing your smoke alarms:

  1. When you change your clocks in the fall, change your batteries
  2. Skip the rechargeable batteries. Alarm manufacturers do NOT recommend using rechargeable because they lose their charge faster
  3. Go with a brand name. Why take the risk of using an off brand to save a few bucks?
  4. Replace you alarm about every 10 years. Sensors get less sensitive as they age.
  5. Test your alarms monthly. You could get a dud battery or it could get drawn down fast for some weird electrical reason
