Daylight Saving Time Ends – Change Your Clocks!


Daylight Saving Time Ends – Change Your Clocks!

Remember to ‘fall back’ this weekend and turn your clocks back one hour. Day light saving time ends November 1, 2015 at 2 a.m.

Some routine maintenance around your home and car should be done twice a year, so what better time to start checking items off your to-do list!

Around the house:

  • Test your smoke and replace the batteries in both devices.
  • Check your furnace’s filter and replace it if it is clogged or dirty.
  • Clean gutters and downspouts to keep debris from accumulating.

In your car:

  • Change your wiper blades – they should be replaced every six months.
  • If you change your tires seasonally, now is a good time to put your winter tires on if you have not already.
    • TIP: (Check the local Laws for the Dates you can install your Studded Tires).

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds!

Bake until crisp and golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Taste for seasoning and add more salt if desired.

How Do you really Carve A Pumpkin


1: Pick a winner

You can’t carve a pumpkin without the pumpkin, and you don’t want a rotten specimen attracting squirrels to your porch. That’s why step one is to select yourself a Grade A pumpkin. This doesn’t necessarily mean biggest or roundest either. Instead, think about the design you’ll be going for, and select a pumpkin whose shape and color play into that concept. Pumpkins should be firm and free of bruises, and make sure any spots on the pumpkin are just dirt and not discoloration.

2: Prepare your tools and workspace
