ay Day is an ancient
festival that wel-
comes spring and
was once celebrated widely on
May 1 every year. May Day
falls approximately halfway
be-tween the spring equinox
and the summer solstice and
has its origins in pre-Christian
times. May Day commemo-
rates festivals of fertility and
agriculture. Ancient Romans
celebrated the festival of
Flora, the Roman goddess of
flowers. But May Day is also
related to the Celtic festival of
Beltane, a springtime festival
of optimism, and the
Germanic festival of Walpur-
gis Night, which also cele-

Did you know about May Day?

I
’ve been thinking a lot
about this lately. I met the
most beautiful woman I’d
ever had the pleasure of laying
my eyes on in 1984, at 23 years
of age. Her name was Teresa
Faith, but her friends called her
Terry. We started working
together in 1984, which simul-
taneously led to a romance.
She accepted my proposal of
marriage shortly after, making
it official on June 1, 1986.
If you think about it for a
moment, most husbands and
wives go their separate ways
each day for at least eight hours
of the working day. She to her
job and he to his. When chil-
dren enter the picture, she usu-
ally stays home and he usually
goes to work, so they are still
separated those eight hours,
plus commuting time and over-
time. Weekends might allow
the spouses some time together,
unless there is another part-
time job for either one of them
or both. At the very least, the
kids’ extracurricular and sport-
ing activities challenge that
time as well, leaving them
apart for the majority of the
Saturdays and Sundays, for
nearly two decades. If one of
them bowls, plays golf religious-
ly or engages in a club activity,
that is even more time they
spend apart. Some married cou-
ples spend time apart with
friends acquired during high
school or college fraternity or
sorority; others spend separate
time pursuing a hobby or
attending classes for self-
advancement. All wonderful
activities and opportunities.
But not me. No, my course was
a little different.
You see, Terry and I have
been doing everything together
24 hours a day for 29 years now.
Ever since we met, we’ve basi-
cally spent everyday side-by-
side. We worked seven days a
week for the company that
brought us together for seven
years. Then we built a business
together. Diversified Financial
Services Group started in 1991
in Pompton Lakes and moved
to Wayne 10 years later. In
2006, that company “morphed”
into the first and foremost fran-
chise in the retirement and
estate planning industry,
American Prosperity Group,
which now spans 10 states with
18 offices.
During the same time —
and I give Terry all of the cred-
it — we grew our family size
from a hard working dynamic
couple to a bustling family of
six! Terry brought Chelsie, our
first child, to the office every
day; when she became mobile;
we expanded our office to
include a nursery for her and
her new brother, Zachary, near-
ly four years later. When Zac

A
new study in the
medical journal
“Acta Odontologica
Scandinvica” indicates that
bleaching with large quantities
of hydrogen peroxide –
between 35 and 38 percent,
the strength of in-office
whitening treatments – can
change the makeup of enamel.
Dental products have recently
begun advertising that they
can help rebuild enamel and
whiten teeth using remineraliz-
ing agents. However, these
agents don’t necessarily help
teeth recoup their enamel after
whitening procedures.
Researchers conducted an
experiment with bovine teeth
whitened by hydrogen perox-
ide with strength of 35 to 38
percent. The makeup of the
enamel was studied 24 hours
after treatment, and again after
two weeks. Half of the samples
were then exposed to a rem-
ineralizing agent.
Teeth exposed to the rem-
ineralizing agent showed the
highest microhardness after 24
hours. The microhardness
level, however, was not the
same after 14 days. Also, the
structure and makeup for all of
the samples after 14 days
showed many abnormalities.
The concept of such new
remineralizing agents being
added to toothpastes and rinses
is still controversial.

B
usiness fraud is every-
where. It can range
from employees pilfer-
ing small items from the
office to embezzling hun-
dreds of thousands of dollars.
And crimes may be commit-
ted by anyone from the low-
est-paid clerk to a long-time
officer. All too often, busi-
ness owners are oblivious to
wrongdoings or they simply
refuse to acknowledge the
possibilities — until it’s too
late.
Don’t make the same
mistakes as countless other
victims. Here are five practi-
cal suggestions for thwarting
workplace fraud.
1.Keep your eyes wide open.
View your operation like an
outsider and identify the
areas that appear ripe for
fraud. If a security problem
persists, don’t ignore it and
simply hope it will vanish.
Confront the toughest issues
head-on.
2.Review and adjust internal
controls. Accountants often
pinpoint this area as a main
culprit. Install a system of
checks and balances and reg-
ularly monitor activities.
Note that employees may be
deterred from theft if the
process is well-documented.
Otherwise, they may think
they won’t be caught.
3.Develop reporting and
investigation procedures.
Encourage your employees to
come forth about suspicious
activities, but keep matters
confidential. When it’s war-
ranted, respond promptly
and decisively. You will also
discourage fraud by showing
that actions have conse-
quences.
4.Don’t become complacent.
Even if no fraud is detected
after an initial sweep,
you must remain vigilant.
Continue to adhere to the
procedures you’ve estab-
lished. Also, make sure that
you follow through on any
unresolved issues to their
completion.
5.Rely on your professional
advisors. For instance, an
attorney’s services may be
required if you decide to seek
legal damages, while an
accountant can help imple-
ment and update internal
controls.
Of course, there are no
guarantees, but these five
proactive steps should, at the
very least, minimize risks to
your company.

R
eceiving the Sacra-
ment of the Eucharist is
a momentous event in a
young Christian’s life, marking
one of the first steps he or she
takes in individual faith forma-
tion. Children who receive the
Eucharist are further initiated
into the church and this enables
them to receive Communion at
each and every mass thereafter,
provided they remain in good
standing with the church.
Christian families place
great significance on the
Eucharist and most want to
commemorate the occasion
with a party. Some people treat
it as they would a wedding or
Sweet 16 party, inviting friends
and extended family members.
Others prefer to keep the cele-
bration a bit more intimate.
Regardless of the size of the
party, there are some tips to
make it a memorable affair that’s
fun for everyone.
Don’t start planning until
you confirm the date of the cer-
emony. Some churches have
one date on which they hold
administer to all candidates at a
special mass. Others may stagger
the ceremonies over the course
of several dates and may inter-
twine their Eucharist cere-
monies with the regular mass
schedule. Either way, parents
should confirm the date months
in advance so they have ample
time to schedule parties and
shop for appropriate attire.
Reserve your date quickly.
Once you know the date of the
ceremony, do not delay if you
plan to hold a party at a restau-
rant or intend to hire a caterer
for a party at home. Not only
will you be competing for dates
with other parents whose chil-
dren will also be receiving the
sacrament, but also you may be
going up against those planning
April or May weddings or grad-
uation parties. If there is a par-
ticular restaurant or banquet
hall you have in mind, reserve
the date quickly and leave a
deposit to secure the reserva-
tion.
Consider a catered affair.
Very often a Communion
reception takes place shortly
after the ceremony at church.
This means guests will go direct-
ly from the church to the party.
Catering the party will ensure
food is ready as your guests
arrive. This also cuts down on
the amount of preparatory work
you will have to do. Restaurants,
delis, fast-food establishments,
warehouse centers, and super-
markets are all viable catering
options depending on the scale
of the party. To keep costs down,
buy frozen, premade foods from
the grocery store, and then sim-
ply heat them up for guests.
Hire entertainment. If
the party will be a larger affair
with a number of children in
attendance, it may pay to hire
an entertainer like a magician,
balloon artist or deejay to keep
everyone entertained and
occupied. Again, since many
Communion ceremonies take
place in the spring when wed-
ding receptions and gradua-
tion parties also take place,
reserve your entertainers early
on. Remember to give the
deejay a play list that will
include music for all ages in
attendance.
A young person receiv-
ing the Sacrament of the
Eucharist is something worth
celebrating. Ensure your party
is a success by planning out
the details in advance and
hosting the best party you can
within your desired budget.

T
he days when single
income households
were the norm are long
gone, as nowadays both Mom
and Dad must work in order to
make ends meet. That reality
has left many women juggling
the obligations of motherhood
with the obligations of a suc-
cessful career.
Such a juggling act is sel-
dom easy, and many mothers
find themselves neglecting one
obligation for the benefit of
another. The following are a
few tips to make balancing
work and family a little easier.
Share the responsibilities.
While the days of the single-
income household may be a
thing of the past, many of the
conventions of those days
remain. Women may still feel
the responsibility to cook fami-
ly meals, clean up after the
children and make it to all of
their children’s sporting events
or other school-related events.
But those responsibilities
should be shared so women can
ensure they’re giving both their
careers and families the atten-
tion each deserves. Devise a
schedule where both parents
tackle such responsibilities
equally so each parent knows
when they have some wiggle
room. For example, if your hus-
band routinely cooks on
Tuesdays, then you know you
won’t need to rush home on
Tuesday night and you might
be able to stay at the office a lit-
tle later to work on a project or
catch up on work. Such sharing
and scheduling can consider-
ably reduce the stress of jug-
gling a family and a career.
Exercise daily. Juggling a
family and a career is often
stressful, and stress can have a
very adverse effect on your
health. Women with high
stress levels are more likely to
suffer from depression, anxiety
and cardiovascular disease. But
the American Psychological
Association notes the positive
impact of exercise as a means to
alleviating stress, citing studies
that have shown that physical-
ly active people have lower
rates of anxiety and depression
than people who are sedentary.
It’s easy to become irritable
when stressed, and no mother
wants to be irritable in the pres-
ence of her children.

Tips for women juggling a family and a career
D
uring its first few hours
of life, your kitten
receives natural imm-
unity against most diseases
from its mother’s first milk, the
colostrum. But eventually your
kitten’s immune system will
have to fend for itself.
Vaccinations provide your kit-
ten good protection against
some life-threatening diseases.
Here’s an explanation of the
vaccines you need or may want
to consider, as recommended
by your veterinarian.
1. FVR-C-P. The upper respira-
tory infection seen in cats is a
complex clinical disease. FVR-
C-P protects your cat against
the two viruses most likely to
cause an upper respiratory
infection in your cat – feline
rhinotracheitis (feline herpes
virus) and feline calicivirus.
Infections with these viruses
can cause discharge from the
nose or eye, respiratory prob-
lems, mouth sores, anorexia
and abortion. FVR-C-P also
protects against panleukope-
nia – feline distemper – an
acute gastrointestinal viral
infection associated with a
sudden onset, depression,
vomiting, diarrhea, dehydra-
tion and a high mortality rate.
These vaccines require boost-
ers two to four weeks apart;
the last dose is given at 12 to
16 weeks.
2. FeLV. Feline leukemia virus
vaccines are available for
interested cat owners. This
vaccine is recommended only
for those cats with high expo-
sure potential, such as outdoor
cats, show cats and those liv-
ing in multiple-cat households
(even if all are considered
indoor-only). Before trying
out the FeLV vaccine, have
your cat tested to see if it
already has the disease. Half of
all cats who get FeLV will die
from complications associated
with the disease. Consult with
your veterinarian if this vac-
cine is right for your cat.
3. FIP. Feline Infectious
Peritonitis, which is associated
with anorexia, weight loss,
growth stunting, gradually
developing potbelly and fever,
has a very high mortality rate.
A vaccine was developed six
years ago and can be given to
cats older than 16 weeks of age.
It requires two doses, three to
four weeks apart. The effective-
ness of this vaccine in prevent-
ing this fatal feline disease is
still being tested and is debat-
able; therefore, most veterinar-
ians do not recommend this
vaccine at this time.
4. Rabies. Most of us associate
rabies with the mad dog froth-
ing at the mouth, eager to bite
anything near it. Although this
is a common presentation in
countries where there is a very
high population of unvaccinat-
ed stray dogs, in the U.S., rabies
usually appears in wild animals.
Rabies vaccination is required
in New Jersey and can be
administered at greater than 12
weeks of age in felines. All
warm-blooded animals –
including you – can get rabies.
The prognosis, unfortunately, is
fatal.
Few medical procedures
are without risk. While trying
to prevent disease in your cat,
there is a small chance that
harm may be done. Veterinar-
ians have observed a chance of
developing a vaccine-associat-
ed sarcoma at a rate of 20 per
100,000 cats. A veterinary task
force, the American Veterinary
Medical Foundation,
has been assigned to this
problem and makes the
following statement on
its website: “Disturbing
as this issue may be,
there is great concern
that cat owners, attempting to
keep their cats from harm, may
forgo vaccination entirely. The
result? Though well inten-
tioned, these owners may be
placing cats at far greater risk of
acquiring a fatal infection than
any risk the vaccine poses. And
in the case of rabies, human
health is at risk as well.”
After your vaccinations,
ask your veterinarian to
point out where the injec-
tions were placed and then
keep an eye on those sites. If
you notice a firm, painless
swelling located near a previ-
ous vaccination site, contacts
your veterinarian.
Your local veterinarian
can provide more information
about vaccinations for your
pet. What is given often
depends on the risk of specific
diseases in your geographic
area, your pet’s lifestyle and
state laws.
Protect your companion
animals and yourself by paying
a visit to your local veterinar-
ian and following the suggest-
ed vaccination protocol.

Incorporating exercise into
your daily routine is a great way
to alleviate the stress of jug-
gling a family and a career, and
you can even incorporate your
family into your exercise rou-
tine, going for nightly walks
after dinner or playing with
your children in the yard.
Stay involved with your
child’s school. Many mothers
find staying active with their
children’s school is a great
opportunity for them to bond
with their kids and keep abreast
of developments at their
school. Such involvement can
be minimal, such as attending a
monthly luncheon with kids or
agreeing to be a chaperone on
one or two class trips per year.
Such events are typically
scheduled months in advance,
so you should have ample time
to arrange a break from the
office without neglecting your
professional responsibilities.
Take advantage of work-
from-home policies. As tech-
nology has advanced, many
companies have become much
more lenient with regard to
employees working from home.
If your company allows you to
work from home, even if it’s
only once per week, then take
advantage of that offer. This
can provide more time with
your kids, it will likely save you
money on childcare, and you
are certain to appreciate the
opportunity to skip your daily
commute, even if it is only
once a week or a couple of
times per month.
Plan ahead. Looking
ahead is another way to make
juggling a family and a career
easier. Plan meals in advance to
cut down on preparation time
when it’s your night to cook.
This can involve placing foods
in a slow cooker in the morning
or preparing part of the meal in
advance so it’s ready to go in
the oven the moment you
arrive home.
Another way to plan
ahead is to look at kids’ school
schedules and
plan trips
during the
school year
when
school won’t
be in session.
A three-day
weekend is a per-
fect opportunity to
plan a getaway to a nearby
locale where the whole family
can relax and reconnect with-
out the pres-
sures of daily
life.
Juggling a
family and
career is not
always easy,
but there are
ways that today’s
mothers can raise a
happy family and still have a
successful career.

H
ave you ever won-
dered why many of
the most beautiful
plants we see in New Jersey
only last a few weeks out of
the year? Why is it that cer-
tain garden vegetables are
only “in season” for a specific
part of the year? The reason
is that these plants are
annuals.
Strictly speaking, an
annual plant is one that com-
pletes its growing cycle in the
course of a single growing
season. The plant grows from
a seed, blooms and produces
seed all within one season. In
other words, annuals pack a
lot of living into a short span
of time! Some annual plant
life cycles may occur in as lit-
tle as one month, while some
species last through several
months.
With spring in full
swing, it’s time to begin
thinking about annual plant-
ing. Take advantage of this
time to grow an edible gar-
den! A large variety of food
plants are either annual
plants or grown in season,

S
pring has sprung for
most areas of the coun-
try and the average
homeowner’s “to-do” list likely
has its share of outdoor land-
scaping tasks that need to be
tackled. The right tools can
make easier work of outdoor
chores.
A report from the
Associated Landscape Con-
tractors of America titled
“Economic Benefits of
Landscape” states that land-
scaping can add as much as 14
percent to the resale value of a
building and speed its sale by as
much as 6 weeks. Homeowners
looking to sell their home or
just improve its market value
will want to consider landscap-
ing a viable investment. A
March 2003 article in Smart
Money noted that homeown-
ers can expect to earn back 150
percent or more of their land-
scape investment through the
value it brings to a property.
Whatever the landscap-
ing project, the right tools will
make any task that much easi-
er. There are certain items
every homeowner should have
in his or her gardening arsenal.
•Soil cultivator: A multi-
pronged tool that breaks up
clods of soil and grass to pro-
vide easier planting.
•Various garden hoes: Hoes
can be used for breaking up
soil, weeding, cultivating,
aerating, and many other
purposes.
•Spading fork: Another tool
that loosens soil with straight
tines that dig through dense
soil.
•Shovel: A multipurpose
shovel can dig through dirt,
gravel and the like.
•Rake: A steel-pronged rake
will till soil and spread out
mulch and other organic mat-
ter in planting beds. A flexible
rake is good for collecting
leaves and thatch.
•Edger: Available as manual or
gas powered, an edger gives
planting beds and the edges of
lawns a clean look.
•String trimmer: Weeds can
easily be trimmed with a string
trimmer that can work around
bushes and other hard-to-reach
areas.
•Gloves: Avoid blisters and
insect bites with durable gloves
that protect the hands.
•Lawn mower: To maintain a
healthy lawn it will have to be
trimmed to the correct height.
A manual or powered lawn
mower is the essential land-
scaper’s tool.
•Collection bags/bins: To
properly dispose of organic
matter like leaves and branch-
es, it pays to have recyclable or
reusable bags on hand for
transporting waste.
•Hoses: Drip irrigation hoses
can deliver water right to
plants’ roots where they need it
most. A regular nozzle-pow-
ered hose can be used for
cleaning and misting plants
and surrounding hardscapes.
•Compost bin: “Black gold” is
the ideal landscaping supple-
ment. By creating compost
from discarded food, a home-

watch sporadically. Some may
wonder how reality TV affects
the perceptions of young
women. According to a survey
conducted by the Girl Scout
Research Institute, girls who
routinely view reality TV are
more focused on physical
appearance, and more than
one-third think that a girl’s
value is based on how she
looks. The study also pointed
out that girls’ views on reality
show behavior tends to pit girls
against one another to make
the show seem more exciting.
The re-search is not all nega-
tive, however. Some survey
respondents said reality TV
made them feel more empow-
ered and that they can “achieve
anything in life.” Others said
the shows highlighted the
plights of teenagers and young
women, helping young women
realize there are other young
women in situations similar to
their own.

ornamental fountains and
pond supplies. Gro-Rite’s
landscaping division offers a
vast selection of trees and
evergreens to help residents
build their landscapes.
There’s even a full-service
floral department with on-
staff designers to assist with
bridal, corporate events and
special occasions. In an effort
to provide a full-service
experience, upon completion
of a landscape job, Gro-Rite
clients receive a floral
arrangement from the floral
department.
Ken Vande Vrede is
president and son of founders
Dave and Gerda. “Providing
the best-possible customer
experience is a key differen-
tiator at Gro-Rite,” he said.
“Customers repeatedly return
for the level of knowledge
and personal attention our
staff members provide.”
What truly sets Gro-
Rite apart from other nurs-
eries is a commitment to
innovation and new technol-
ogy. Gro-Rite has adopted
state-of-the-art hydroponic
technology, which allows
large quantities of lettuces,
herbs and vegetables to grow
in a clean, sustainable, bacte-
ria-free environment. They
utilize a natural growing
environment for pesticide-
free herbs and vegetables,
and are hoping to meet
USDA organic standards
soon.
Gro-Rite’s vision is pro-
viding customers with locally
grown, preservative-free
foods and using hydroponic
technology will also allow
them to do that.
Hydroponics is a soil-less
method of growing plants
that uses a combination of
mineral nutrient solutions
and water. Contrary to popu-
lar belief, soil is not essential
to the growth of plants, but is
merely a “holding area” for
necessary mineral nutrients
that, when dissolved in
water, are absorbed by plant
roots.
Through the use of less
water and space to produce
herbs and greens, hydroponic
farming is a 100 percent nat-
ural and sustainable growing
method that dramatically
reduces our carbon footprint.
Through hydroponic
farming, Gro-Rite will be the
only greenhouse in 2013 that
provides year-round, pick-
your-own locally grown pro-
duce.
For nearly four decades,
the Vande Vrede family has
owned and operated Gro-Rite
Greenhouse and Garden
Center at 30 Hillview Road in
Lincoln Park. Gro-Rite is
opened 9am–5pm Monday
through Saturday. For more
information, visit www.gror-
ite.com or call 973-694-7495.
grew a little lonely, Jack Benny
was born in 1998 and we added
an addition to our newly
acquired home so I could bring
the office into the house to
continue working with my wife
and life partner every day. Two
years later, Jack wanted a little
brother to play with, and
Sammy showed up to be his lit-
tle buddy!
Terry and I continued to
work together every day, help-
ing the community with their
retirement and estate-planning
needs. We are proud that we
have been able to build our
family and family business
simultaneously over these past
29 years. I did the marriage cal-
culation to determine that —
based on the comparison to
what I’ll call “normally mar-
ried” couples — if you count up
all of the hours we have spent
together everyday, we have
been married about four times
longer than other couples of
the same vintage. 29 years
together, multiplied by four,
equals 116 years. So there you
have it folks, I’ve been married
to the sexiest and most remark-
able woman in the world for
116 years! She has let me pur-
sue my goals, dreams and ambi-
tions, and not only stood by my
side with constant and never-
ending support, but was an
active participant in all of them
with great expense to her indi-
vidual goals and dreams, as
well. I am convinced that the
greatest force in business is a
husband and wife working
together side-by-side with a
common goal and objective.
They are powerful enough to
overcome a major recession,
the worst stock market crashes
in the nation’s history and the
worst real estate market
decline. Though President
Obama recently stated that we
didn’t build our businesses our-
selves, I beg to differ! Not only
did we build it ourselves, but we
built it with American values,
American pride and American
ingenuity.
I’m not afraid to say “I
love my wife” and I would be
here neither financially nor
physically if she were not by my
side every day — especially
when I underwent heart-bypass
surgery and suffered 10 strokes
and other complications,
resulting in a 43-day hospital
stay.
Yes, there was a two-week
period of time when we were
not together every day. I con-
tracted an infection during my
hospital stay and she, being by
my side for 19 days straight,
caught the same infection,
resulting in hospitalization for
the next 14 days in a separate
Q
uestion: Why does
one need life insur-
ance and when is
best to invest in it?
Answer: Life insurance is a
vehicle that will aid in ensuring
that loved ones left behind in
the event of an untimely death
are able to continue their
financial lives and also takes
care of final expenses for the
dearly departed.
Of all the insurance
products that are offered by
the multitude of insurance
companies in this country, life
insurance is the only product
that is not speculative. Auto,
homeowners, motorcycle,
business, flood and some other
types of insurance are all in
place just in case something
happens. Life insurance is the
only one that has a guarantee,
as there is one guarantee from
the day we are born. A whole
life policy is assurance that
expenses and loved ones will
be left financially whole.
As there are also term
policies that offer more afford-
able premiums, these policies
can be converted to whole life
at a later date, prior to policy
expiration, in case it appears
the owner will out-live a term.
It can be converted without
new medical exams or under-
writing. The whole policy
would simply be rated at the
current rate at the time of
conversion.
The best time to invest in
a whole life policy is in your
younger years, simply due to
the minimal risk youthfulness
presents. Term policies are best
for those who aren’t yet able to
afford whole life premiums,
new homeowners for the term
of the mortgage, and other debt
that may have a 10-year range
to be paid off, like wedding
expenses.
The protection for the
legacy you build is but a con-
tact point away. Reach out to

brates the arrival of spring.
Many past May Day celebra-
tions included spending time
outdoors standing around
bonfires and dancing. A tradi-
tional British May Day cele-
bration included crowning a
May Queen and dancing
around a Maypole, which was
covered in ribbons. While
May Day has lost many of its
pagan origins since the
widespread conversion to
Christianity, there are some
who see May Day as a special
time and a harbinger of spring.
In the UnitedStates, May 1 is
also recognized as Law Day
and is meant to highlight the
importance of law in the foun-
dation of the country and how
law benefits society.
