Eat In More Than You Eat Out.
 You may have promised to diet. You’ll probably eat LESS if you eatat home. Fill half of your plate withfruits and vegetables. Share the timepreparing and cooking with family and friends, free of distractions. Anadded bonus? You’ll probably savemoney, too. Nothing wrong withthat!4)
Be BETTER Than Punctual.
 Shoot for being five minutes early for everything. That small goal willhelp retrain you to focus your effortand improve your functionality.5)
Bring Back the Phone Call.
 Instead of texting, tweeting orposting on a wall, why not pick upthe phone and call who you’d like to

What changes do you want tomake in your own life to feel happier?Instead of traditional New Year’sResolutions fueled with high hopes andexpectations but destined to crash, why notopt for realistic goals which have a chanceto meet with success?
 Try one of these 10 easier to follow New  Year’s Resolutions this year
1) Take the Stairs.
 A gym membership is great only if you use it, and most homeequipment becomes a coat rack by February. Instead, ditch theescalator or elevator and committo taking the stairs.
2)Turn Off Your Cell Phone.
Despite the tempting new “apps”for everything, wean yourself for
an hour or so each day and pick up a book instead. It’s not
impossible – start with thirty

stay in touch with? There’s something about atone of voice, or the sound of sincerity or laughterthat the written word cannot convey.6)
Get Out of your Comfort Zone.
  Try to do one thing per day or week that you would not normally. This will be different for eachperson, but perhaps you could try smiling at people who walk by, or greeting someone you see oftenbut don’t normally talk to. Notice some goodbehavior? Don’t think it to yourself and file itaway. Offer that unexpected compliment.7)
 Turn Off the Internet.
  Almost the same as suggestion #2. Again, I’m notsuggesting that you totally disappear off the grid,but try to walk away for a set amount of time.Productivity studies have shown what youprobably already suspect: wandering aimlessly around the web nets you mostly procrastination.

 There are apps and software available to limitdistractions while working online if you need thehelp.8)
Make More Eye Contact.
  This is an easy resolution that helps prove topeople that you are more engaged and actually interested in what they have to say. Have you beenat a store trying to talk with a salesperson whilethey have that wandering eye checking out whoever walks by? They didn’t seem very interested in figuring out your needs and truly trying to assist you, did they? Why not give othersthe eye contact you would have appreciated, andsee how simple and effective it really is.9)
Leave Your Credit Cards at Home.
Thisresolution addresses itself to people who struggleto rope in their purchasing impulses, whip out theircredit card, and anguish with remorse and regretlater. Have a plan for your expenditures, and sticto it.10)
Hand Write a Letter.
“Snail mail” is stillappreciated, probably more so than an e-mail. It’sa great way to connect with not only friends andfamily, but with potential clients and businesspartners as well. A hand written letter showsgenuine care that is often lost – even in the mosteloquently written computer-generatedcommunication.

 The Truth About Store Bought Carbon MonoxideDetectors
REVEALED
 
Last year the State of Illinois passedlegislation requiring functioning CarbonMonoxide (CO) monitors be installedon every floor of your home. What youneed to know is that standard monitorsthat can be purchased from the localstore are flawed. The flaw is that these monitors allow for a very high, even fatal, amount of carbon monoxide to build up in a spacebefore they ever alert you. The ULlisting of these store-bought monitorsstate that the warning must sound once75 PPM (parts per million) of carbonmonoxide is detected for a three andone half hour time period. According to international healthstandards, that level of carbonmonoxide could lead to severe illness oreven death. Those most susceptible toCO
 
poisoning are young children, theelderly, or people with
 
medicalproblems. To you it means that yourmonitor may not go off until it is too late – but the governing agencies of thisstandard are OK with the level of adequacy they passed into law. The picture on the right shows a store-bought monitor placed behind that of aNS13000 low-level CO monitor. As thenumber read-out in the picture is notclear, I can point out that the NSI monitoris showing a presence of 17 PPM of COin the air while the store-bought monitorreads zero. Health conscious individualsshould be aware that potential poison is inthe air they’re breathing, don’t you agree? The intent of this information is not tosell a bunch of monitors, but to make youaware that there are, in fact, differences.Granted, the NS13000 is more expensive,but clients who have purchased
 
them, orhave added them when purchasing acomplete system, have enjoyed the peaceof mind that real time monitoring brings. The NS13000 is the difference betweenthe ability to be proactive or reactive. Abetter monitor allows you ample warning to take proper steps to correct apotentially deadly situation. But at theend of the day, if saving money isforemost in your mind, I will be happy totell you where you can purchase acheaper, up to code minimum monitor.Call us for more information, or

Hey everyone! I hope you had an enjoyable holiday, no matter which you participated in. I had no idea how many differentcelebrations and traditions there are. I am quite content with thecanine version which is shredding wrapping paper followed by roughly five minutes of playing with/destroying what was inside.I have no idea why five minutes is considered “short”. Ithappens to be many, many times my normal attention span. Tome, spending five minutes on a gift is the proper amount of attention itdeserves, does not signal any displeasure of it on my part, and just means I am ready for the next one. My brother feels the same way. Obviously, John and Lindsey enjoy selecting toys for us, wrapping them, and watching our enjoyment ripping thepackages apart. It’s a win-win situation, right? Parents just don’t get it, I guess.Dogs are supposed to have an understanding of about 100 words. Obviously, as writers, the two of us understand more. I pick up a couple of more each year, and want to share with you the newest to my understanding. “Turkey” and “New Year’sResolution”. They absolutely go together! For 2012, my resolution is to somehow,someway, add more turkey to my diet. Yum…….it was a great holiday! Hope yours was, too. Wishing you the happiest New Year, Murphy p.s. Someone named Kathleen posted there’s a new dog at Grandma and Grandpa’snamed…Romeo! I snuck a look. Big guy. This doesn’t sound too good, more onthat next month!
The NSI3000 detects the presence of CO in the air while the store bought model reads “0”
