After two weeks, brain scans revealed increased blood flow in the regions involved in decision-making and short-term memory. The results validate the notion that seeking out new ideas and interests helps to keep the brain stimulated and healthy. "Becoming involved in new … (1 comments)

Going Green...   Cold water washes are greener, but will they get my clothes clean?   For a hot-water load, about 90% of the energy used to wash clothes goes to heat the water, not agitate your clothes. The good news is washing your clothes in warm water or even cold water will get rid of almost anything, except for the worst dirt or oily stains. Reader Digest Version: Switch from hot to warm water to cut energy use in half; cold, to cut even more.

Widespread layoffs by business of all sizes have also stifled demand for office space. Campmark's troubles could also be … (0 comments)

How does Hand Sanitizer work?   I found this in my wifes Womans Day Magazie. I found it interesting.Ethyl alcohol (Ethanol) is found in most hand sanitizers.

The Greenest of the Green, Cellulose Insulation
While people may debate the causes of global warming, it is just common sense to use products that have the minimum impact on the environment.
Insulation, by reducing the amount of energy required to heat or cool a building, is environmentally friendly. But don't be fooled into thinking all insulating materials are equal. There is plenty of greenwashing taking place to make products look more beneficial, or less harmful, to the environment than they really are.
Cellulose Insulation is one of the greenest products in the world. Cellulose insulation is made from recycled newsprint … (1 comments)

Maple syrup
The process of making maple syrup is an age-old tradition of the North American Indians, who used it both as a food and as a medicine. They would make incisions into trees with their tomohawks and use birch barks to collect the sap. The sap would be condensed into syrup by evaporating the excess water using one of two methods: plunging hot stones into the sap or the nightly freezing of the sap, following by the morning removal of the frozen water layer.
When the settlers came to North America, they were fascinated by this traditional process and in … (2 comments)
