Emergency Candles, Milk Cartons, And Garage Storage

Firefighters urge residents in Milton Keynes to take 'extra care' with candles

I've spent years half opening the carton and sticking the straw in, only to have most of the milk end up on my kids rather than in them. A few weeks later I bought a different brand of milk and to my amazement, this also had the little 'X'; although there were no directions indicating that it's for a straw. I haven't found a brand since then that doesn't have it. Villified1 repurposes an old bed frame for some garage storage: I mounted a very old, slightly broken, twin-sized wooden bed frame to the walls and ceiling in my garage to create a sturdy shelf for storage bins and the like. It was a simple and cheap way to get a high-mounted, large, and sturdy shelf in the garage. Clean for Fifteen Minutes Each Day, Then Stop Jonathan shares a tip for avoiding cleaning burnout: I'm a college student and don't have lots of spare time for cleaning. I've also noticed that if I let things get messy then spend a bunch of time cleaning them up, I get kind of burned out on cleaning and I'm more likely to let it go for several days afterward. I started cleaning for only fifteen minutes each day and then stopping even if things were still messy.

Candles for Jordan Dordell (with photos)

And station manager Roy Hocking, from Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Services community safety team, said: Candles can bring a pleasant scent and an atmospheric glow to a cold evening, but left unattended, an open flame can leave a trail of devastation. More than a third of all fires started by candles result in injury or death. Please make sure that candles are extinguished long before bed time so there is no danger you will nod off with a candle still burning. It is also vitally important that all homes have a properly fitted and working smoke alarm. A working smoke alarm can give you the vital time you need to get out, stay out and call 999. Stay safe by testing your alarms regularly and practising your escape routes. Roy has urged everyone to follow these top candle safety tips from the national Fire Kills campaign: Always place candles in a sensible holder or container on a heat-resistant surface. Nightlights and tea-lights can melt plastic surfaces like TV tops and bathtubs. Never leave burning candles unattended - put them out at night and when you leave the room.

For more information, call Social Services at 959-9151. Lee Guillermo, assistant director of social services at Life Care Center of Hilo, reported this is the ninth time this AFA event is being held on the Big Island. Pastor Ron Brav from Calvary Church will conduct the prayer. The public may submit names to be read at the event and may also bring a picture of their family member. AFA initiated the event nine years ago to raise awareness of Alzheimers disease and related illnesses, and to highlight the availability of community resources. Since then, participation in the event has grown enormously, with hundreds of sites from coast to coast expected to hold ceremonies this year. Our hope is that these inspirational ceremonies will shed light on the magnitude of Alzheimers disease., said Guillermo.
