oyal Lawns of America,
Inc., has been in business
for over 40 years and is
now in its second generation.
Michael Miller took over the
Wayne-based business from his
father and has continued to pro-
vide the community with the
same fine services that are in tune
with the environment.
The owner-operated, owner-
on-site business offers customers
the benefit of paying one price for
the whole year, and there are no
special contracts. As Michael
puts it: “My work speaks for
itself.”
He treats present problems
with methods that are environ-
mentally friendly. “I’m as close to
organic as I can be,” he said.
Among the services are aeration,
seeding, fertilizing, weed control,
insect control, liming, fungus
control, and IPM (integrated pest
management). More detail about
each service follows.
Aeration: To keep your lawn
healthy, it should be aerated at
least twice a year. The Royal
Lawns aeration techniques allow
air, light, water and nutrients to
penetrate your lawn, promoting
root growth and helping to
decompose organically an exces-
sive thatch layer more rapidly.
Re-Seeding: Areas of the lawn
that have been damaged or neg-
lected can be renewed by re-seed-
ing. “We use quality disease-
resistant blends of bluegrass, fes-
cue, and rye grasses especially
selected for your lawn’s environ-
ment, improving the appearance
and density of your turf. This, in
turn, helps inhibit weed growth,”
said Michael.
Fertilizer (granular): A thriving
lawn requires properly timed
applications of complete, bal-

T
o my loyal Life and
Leisure readers, I was
cleaning up some saved
emails and found some inter-
esting tidbits that I thought
would be good to share in my
column before hitting the
delete button. I hope you take
them in the proper spirit with a
little grin and laugh, within the
insight of the messages.
Governmentium discov-
ered... A major research
institution has recently
announced the discovery of the
heaviest element yet known to
science. The new element has
been named “Governmen-
tium.” Govern-mentium has
one neutron, 12 assistant neu-
trons, 75 deputy neutrons, and
224 assistant deputy neu-
trons, giving it an atomic mass
of 312.
These 312 particles are
held together by forces called
morons, which are surrounded
by vast quantities of particles
called peons.
Since Governmentium
has no electrons, it is inert.
However, it can be detected,
because it impedes every reac-
tion with which it comes into
contact.
A minute amount of
Governmentium causes one
reaction to take over four days
to complete, when it would
normally take less than a sec-
ond.
Governmentium has a
normal half-life of 4 years; it
does not decay, but instead
undergoes a reorganization in
which a portion of the assistant
neutrons and deputy neutrons
exchange places.
In fact, Governmen-
tium’s mass will actually
increase over time, since each
reorganization will cause more
morons to become neutrons,
forming isodopes.
This characteristic of
moron promotion leads some
scientists to believe that
Governmentium is formed
whenever morons reach a cer-
tain quantity in concentra-
tion. This hypothetical quan-
tity is referred to as
“Critical Morass.” When
catalyzed with money,
Governmentium becomes
Administratium - an element
which radiates just as much
energy as the Governmen-
tium since it has half as many
peons, but twice as many
morons. And this ends the sci-
ence part of our column today.
On the economic front, “It’s a
recession when your neighbor
loses his job; it’s a depression
when you lose yours.” — Harry
S Truman, who also said, “I
have found the best way to give
advice to your children is to
find out what they want and
then advise them to do it.”
In mass transit news, Will
Rogers said, “Even if you are on
the right track, you will get run
over if you just sit there.”
Commenting on a past
political gathering, this inter-
esting prayer was given a few
years back in Kansas at one
opening session of their Senate.
It seems prayer still upsets some
people. When Minister Joe
Wright was asked to open the
new session, everyone was
expecting the usual generali-
ties, but, this is what they
heard:
“Heavenly Father, we
come before you today to ask
your forgiveness and to seek
your direction and guidance.
We know Your Word says,
‘Woe to those who call evil
good,’ but that is exactly what
we have done. We have lost
our spiritual equilibrium and
reversed our values. We have
exploited the poor and called it
the lottery. We have rewarded
laziness and called it welfare.
We have killed our unborn and
called it choice. We have shot
abortionists and called it justifi-
able. We have neglected to dis-
cipline our children and called
it building self-esteem. We
have abused power and called it
politics. We have coveted our
neighbor’s possessions and
called it ambition. We have
polluted the air with profanity
and pornography and called it
freedom of expression. We
have ridiculed the time-hon-
ored values of our forefathers
and called it enlightenment.
Search us, Oh, God, and know
our hearts today; cleanse us
from every sin and set us free.
Amen!”
The response was imme-
diate. A number of legislators
walked out during the prayer in

A
n article in January’s
issue of “General
Dentistry” indicates
that obesity may be a risk factor
for gum disease.
The correlation stems
from the fact that obese people
produce a higher level of
cytokines, which are proteins
with inflammatory properties.
These proteins then injure the
gum tissues or lower blood flow
to the gums, making way for
gum disease.
Half of all Americans 30
or older are impacted by gum
disease. Gum disease also pro-
duces a high level of cytokines,
resulting in a larger amount of
inflammatory proteins in the
bloodstream. Gum disease
eventually initiates other
inflammatory diseases through-
out the body. There are many
studies relating gum disease to
cardiovascular disease, heart
disease, diabetes, arthritis and
others.
Visiting the dentist on a
regular basis is the best way to
detect gum disease or to deter-
mine whether you are at a
higher risk for the disease.
Removing plaque by brushing,
flossing and mouth-rinsing will
also aid in prevention.

f kids had their way, pizza,
chicken fingers and french
fries would make up a sig-
nificant portion of their diets.
But parents know they must
make kids’ culinary choices for
them so youngsters get all of
the vitamins and nutrients
they need to grow up strong
and healthy.
Parents also tend to
know how difficult it can be
to convince kids to embrace
healthy eating. Healthy
eating habits can help kids
live healthier lives and per-
form better in the classroom
while setting them up for a
lifetime of making the right
choices at mealtime.
Though encouraging kids to
eat healthy may not always
be easy, the following are a few
tips for parents hoping to fos-
ter healthy eating habits in
their children.
•Stick to a schedule. Parents
should establish a regular eat-
ing schedule, for both meals
and snacks, so kids learn the
importance of not skipping
meals. Kids who learn to eat at
regular intervals are more like-
ly to continue doing so as they
grow older. When kids stick to
a meal schedule, they are less
likely to overeat and they’re
likely to have more energy
throughout the day, which
should help them stay atten-
tive at school and be more
engaged in their extracurricu-
lar activities.
•Involve kids when choosing
the menu. Kids might be more
excited about eating healthy
when you involve them in
choosing the menu. Invite
them along on trips to the gro-
cery store and allow them to
choose one of their favorite
foods for the meal in exchange
for eating the healthy fare you
have chosen. Parents may end
up eating a lot of side dishes of
macaroni and cheese, but their
youngsters will also end up
eating their vegetables.
•Plan healthy desserts.
Dessert is often considered an
unhealthy indulgence, but
there’s plenty of nutritious
desserts that are so delicious
kids likely will not realize
they’re eating healthy. A
dessert of fresh fruit and a
small serving of yogurt can
provide the same post-meal
refreshment as ice cream or
cake, but it does so with
much fewer calories and a
lot more nutrients and vita-
mins. What’s more, kids
will come to look at dessert
as a chance to eat fresh
fruits instead of an opportu-
nity to load up on ice cream
or other, less healthy alter-
natives.
•Serve healthy portions.
Sometimes it’s not just what is
on the plate but how much is
on the plate that can be
healthy or unhealthy. When
doling out portions for the
family, create healthy portions
so kids are not encouraged to
overeat. Kids who grow up
eating healthy portions are
more likely to continue doing
so into adulthood. Overeating
is one of the culprits behind
being overweight and obese,
so kids who learn to control
their portions are much less
likely to overeat and gain
excess weight.
•Don’t reward kids with food.
Some parents try to reward
youngsters with food, allowing
kids to indulge in unhealthy
fare in acknowledgement of a
good report card or something
else kids should be proud of.
But using food as a reward is an
unhealthy eating habit that
can lead to problems down the
road as kids become adults
responsible for their own eat-
ing habits.
•Set a positive example. Kids
are more likely to eat healthy
when mom and dad are
healthy eaters. If your first
choice at snack time is to
reach for a bag of potato
chips, then don’t be surprised
when your kids opt for chips
over healthier fare like a piece
of fruit. “Do as I say, not as I
do” is a tough sell to young-
sters when it comes to their
eating habits, so parents
should set a positive example
for their kids

anced, slow-release fertilizers
to replace essential nutrients
taken from the soil. The fertil-
izers used by Royal Lawns are
designed to feed your lawn
from one service to the next,
and there is no surge growth
or burning – just steady
greening and a thicker, more
beautiful lawn.
Liming: The application of
lime increases the granulation
of soil, improving its physical
structure and air-to-water
ratio, helping your lawn toler-
ate drought conditions.
Liming increases the availabil-
ity of many plant nutrients,
making fertilizers more effec-
tive and helping to reduce
weeds by creating conditions
more favorable to grass
growth.
Fungus control: Since fungus
problems are derived mostly
from weather conditions,
maintaining a strong lawn
through treatment, watering
and proper mowing makes
your lawn more naturally
resistant to fungus problems.
However, in appropriate con-
ditions, fungicides may be
used to help reduce damage
caused by cell deterioration
from fungus.
IPM: The most serious threats
to a beautiful lawn are weeds,
disease and insects. Because of
the variety and the diversity of
appropriate treatments, they
are most difficult to control.
Royal Lawns provides expert
weed and pest controls, using
only Environment Protection
Agency approved materials
that are scientifically tested to
be effective. Being concerned
with the environment, Royal
Lawns uses only minimal
amounts where needed to
maintain control.
For more information or
to make an appointment to
have a healthy looking lawn

America at 973-839-8483.

Central Christian Church,
where Rev. Wright is pastor,
logged more than 5,000 phone
calls with only 47 of those calls
responding negatively. The
church received international
requests for copies of this prayer
from India, Africa and Korea.
Commentator Paul Harvey
aired this prayer on his radio
program, “The Rest of the
Story” and received a larger
response to this program than
any other he had ever aired.
Let me close with quotes
from two of my favorite teach-
ers/speakers/motivational writ-
ers and successful Americans.
Earl Nightingale said, “People
with goals succeed, because
they know where they are
going... it’s as simple as that.”
And Napoleon Hill whose
philosophies, if edited down to
one sentence preached, “There
is one quality that one must
possess to win, and that is defi-
niteness of purpose, the knowl-
edge of what one wants, and a
burning desire to possess it.”
Folks, may you achieve
everything you desire in exact
proportion to the extent you
are willing to work to achieve it

CLEAN-UP TIME
Reader, suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of
Congress. But I repeat myself. — Mark Twain
continued from page 5 continued from page 1
I
f you need more time to file
your 2013 income tax
return, you can get an
extension — and no explana-
tion is necessary.
You may have a very good
reason for wanting more time
to file your 2013 individual
income tax return. For
instance, you might want to
hold off funding a retirement
plan such as a Keogh or SEP
until you can save more
money. Perhaps you’re waiting
for a tax form from a trust, a
partnership or an S corpora-
tion. Or maybe you’ve just
been busy.
It doesn’t matter.
Whatever the cause or moti-
vation, you can usually put off
filing for up to six months
beyond April 15. That means
you could have until October
15, 2014 to finalize your
return — assuming you follow
the rules. Here’s what you
need to do:
Estimate your total tax
liability for 2013, subtract
what you’ve already paid in
withholding or estimated pay-
ments and remit most or all of
the balance, and file an exten-
sion request form (generally
Form 4868 for an individual
return) by April 15.
You can file the exten-
sion request form electronical-
ly, by phone, or by mailing it
to the IRS. If you owe taxes,
you can pay with an electronic
funds transfer, your credit card
or a check.
Requesting an extension
for your personal return also
gives you additional time to
file a gift tax return for 2013.
The gift tax return extension
is automatically included.
You don’t even have to check
a box. But if you owe gift tax
(or generation skipping
transfer tax) or are request-
ing an extension only for a
gift tax return, you’ll need to
use Form 8892.
One more quirk: If you
live and work outside the U.S.,
you may qualify for an auto-
matic two-month extension to
file without having to send in
a form. However, if you’re out
of the country and expect to
meet the requirements for for-
eign tax exclusions or deduc-
tions after April 15, you might
need to file Form 2350.

Need more time to file your tax
return? By Robert Sokoloff, CPA
W
hether you’re ac-
quiring a new
puppy or kitten for
your household or adopting an
adult pet from a shelter or res-
cue organization, the follow-
ing tips will help you get off on
the right foot with your newest
family member.
Doctor visits. Just as you
require regular visits to your
doctor and dentist to make
sure you stay healthy, so does
your new pet. A veterinary
visit should be a once-a-year
event, minimum, and more
frequent check-ups may be
needed depending on your
pet’s age and health status.
Regular visits are likely to
include a thorough exam,
weigh-in, immunizations and
parasite checks (a heartworm
test and fecal exam). Blood
tests and dental cleanings are
also routine procedures.
Healthy eating. Your new pet
may be eyeing your plate with
interest, but don’t give in. Pets
shouldn’t eat like people. Cats
are carnivores; they need plen-
ty of protein in their diets —
roughly twice the percentage
that you do — and they need
it in the form of meat, poultry
or fish. And while your dog,
like you, is an omnivore, that
doesn’t mean he should share
your meals. A food formulated
especially for dogs is much bet-
ter and treats should make up
no more than 10 percent of a
dog’s caloric intake.
Parasite prevention. You’ve
probably heard of pests like
heartworms, intestinal para-
sites, fleas and ticks but under-
standing how and when to
prevent them is a different
matter. Dogs and cats can
become infected with heart-
worms, although the resulting
disease differs somewhat
between the two species.
Heartworm disease can be
deadly, or it can reduce the
quality of life of both dogs and
cats. Mosquitoes spread heart-
worms, and dogs and cats need
to be protected year-round,
thanks to the mosquito’s abili-
ty to survive in a variety of
environments. A bonus is that
many heartworm preventives
also protect pets against other
internal parasites. For more
information on how to protect
your new pet against heart-
worms and other parasites,
talk to your veterinarian and
visit the American
Heartworm society website at
www.heartwormsociety.org.
Bathing. Most of us wouldn’t
dream of letting a day go by
without a shower or bath. But
daily bathing is unnecessary
for pets and can dry out their
skin and hair. Most dogs are
fine with a bath every three
months, unless they get extra
dirty or have silky hair. Cats
usually keep themselves clean
without any help although
brushing long-haired cats on a
regular basis is advised to keep
their fur tangle-free and help
prevent hairballs.
Making a connection. Dogs
and cats relate to their owners
in different ways. As a pack
animal, dogs expect you to
lead their pack and give them
rules to follow. Dogs make
faces — in fact, it’s estimated
that they have 100 different
facial expressions, thanks to
their mobile ears. Cats attach
to their people as social part-
ners and use affectionate
behaviors, such as purring,
kneading and rubbing against
you to show their affection.
They’re also quite vocally
expressive and can produce
more than 100 different
sounds.
Sleep habits. While cats have
a reputation for dozing, both
cats and dogs spend more than
half their time in slumber. Like
babies, puppies and kittens
sleep more than adults,
although their sleep patterns
can be erratic. Keep in mind
that excessive sleeping can be
a sign of boredom. Most pets
will be glad to forego a nap for
playtime or a walk.
Bringing a pet into your
home is one of the greatest
joys in life, but it means new
responsibilities. Understand-
ing your pet’s behavior, as well
as the do’s and don’ts of pet
health care, will help make
your bond with your pet a last-
ing one.

H
ome Health Care
allows one to receive
quality individual-
ized services in the comfort of
their home. Recipients of
home health care include the
elderly, those living with an
illness, and those recovering
from an accident or surgery.
More families are choosing
home care as the preferred
way of care for their loved
ones for various reasons:
1. It is delivered at home.
There are positive feelings
that all of us associate with
being home. Our home is our
castle, our refuge from the
storm. Whether we’re feeling
sick or well, we enjoy the
sanctity of our residences and
the joy of being with our loved
ones.
2. It provides the elderly
with a sense of independ-
ence. None wants to feel
totally dependent or helpless.
With some assistance, seniors
receiving home care can con-
tinue to function as viable
members of society.
3. Home care can be safer.
Statistics show it is not
uncommon for patients to
develop new health problems
or risk infection as a result of
being hospitalized. Some of
these risks are eliminated
when care is given at home.
4. Home care allows the
maximum amount of freedom
for the individual. A hospital
or nursing home can be a reg-
imented, regulated environ-
ment. Upon admission to
either, an individual is
required to surrender a signif-
icant portion of his rights.
Such sacrifices are not
required with home care
where flexibility is key.
5. Home care is personalized.
Home care is tailored to the
needs of each individual. It is
delivered on a one-to-one
basis and involves the indi-
vidual and the family in the
care that is delivered.
6. Home care is less expen-
sive than other forms of care.
Home care costs only one-
tenth as much as hospitaliza-
tion and one-fourth as much
as nursing home placement.
By bringing health services
home, the patient also does
not generate additional
board and room expenses.

S
ignificant snowfall
combined with melting
and re-freezing, which
New Jersey residents are all
too familiar with can create
roof damage. Even the most
high-quality roofing material
can be adversely impacted by
severe snow accumulation,
wind, pooling water and ice
buildup.
To avoid wet and expen-
sive damage to your roof after
this winter, it’s important to
educate yourself and take
immediate action to save cost-
ly, time-consuming damage to
your home. Don’t let winter
ruin your roof!
What is an ice dam?
Ice dams form when
snow sits on the roof for a
period of time and goes
through a melt and freeze
sequence. As the snow is
melted by poor ventilation
and the introduction of heat
from the occupied floor below
(lighting, air leaks, ductwork,
etc.) the water runs between
the snow and the warm roof
surface.
When the water gets past
the exterior higher walls and
hits a cold unheated roof
edges or gutters it freezes and
turns into ice. As the snow
and ice accumulation contin-
ues it creates larger and larger
ice dams.
Ice dam damage
If this situation contin-
ues, the ice expands and works
its way back up the roof edge,
gets under shingles, melts and

T
he popularity of Thai
food in North America
continues to rise. But
even the most devoted of Thai
food fans may not know how
easy it can be to prepare their
favorite Thai foods at home.
Fried rice is one of the more
popular Thai dishes that can be
easily cooked up from the com-
fort of your own kitchen. Those
who want to try their hand at
Thai cuisine can use the fol-
lowing recipe for “Pineapple
Fried Rice” courtesy of Katie
Chin’s “Everyday Thai
Cooking” (Tuttle).
Pineapple Fried Rice
Serves 4 to 6 as a side
1 whole pineapple
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon salt, divided
2 tablespoons high-heat cooking
oil, divided
1 garlic clove, minced
1 small shallot, finely sliced
1 fresh hot red or green chili,
preferably Thai (deseeded if
you prefer less heat), finely
sliced
3 cups cooked and chilled
Thai jasmine rice
2 tablespoons fish sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 cup cubed cooked chicken
breast
1 cup cubed cooked shrimp
1/2 cup fresh or thawed
frozen peas
4 tablespoons finely chopped
fresh coriander leaves
(cilantro), plus more for gar-
nish
4 tablespoons finely chopped fresh
mint
Pinch of ground white pepper
1. Cut the pineapple in half
lengthwise, and cut the fruit
from the middle, leaving shell
halves intact. Cut out the eyes
and core. Set the shell halves
aside. Dice the fruit. Dry the
diced pineapple with paper
towels and set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk
together the eggs, 1/2 teaspoon
of the salt and the pinch of
pepper.
3. Heat half of the oil in a wok
or large skillet over medium-
high heat. Cook eggs, stirring,
until set but still moist. Transfer
eggs to a plate. Wash and thor-
oughly dry the wok or skillet.
4. Heat the remaining oil over
medium-high heat. Add
the garlic, shallots and
chili, and stir-fry until fra-
grant, about 30 seconds.
Add the rice and stir-fry
for 2 minutes. Add the
fish sauce, soy sauce,
chicken, shrimp, peas, and
the remaining 1/2 tea-
spoon salt and stir-fry for 2
to 3 minutes. Add the
reserved eggs, pineapple,
fresh coriander leaves, and
mint; stir-fry for 30 sec-
onds.
5. Scoop the fried rice
into the pineapple shells and
garnish with fresh coriander
leaves. Serve immediately.
Note: If you dice the pineapple
ahead of time, rinse the pineap-
ple shells with boiling water
and dry with paper towels
before serving.

Finding
the Right
Restaurant
for Your
Dinner
Party
O
ver the last couple of years, dining out has become an even bigger luxury than it
once was. Thanks to the struggling economy, many people have decided to cut
back on spending, and dining out has become casualty of such events.
While the economy is gradually rebounding, dining out is still largely reserved for
special occasions among those whose memory of the recession is still fresh. However,
dining out does remain a strong choice when hosting a special occasion such as a birthday
party or anniversary celebration. When choosing a restaurant to have such a gathering,
consider the following tips to ensure that rare restaurant night out goes off without a hitch.
NEW
what’s
in dining?
• Look for versatility in a menu. When
dining out, the emphasis is obviously on the
food. Couples might enjoy certain
restaurants they have previously patronized,
but that does not necessarily make the
restaurant ideal for a party. When shopping
for a restaurant, look for one that boasts a
versatile menu that can cater to a vast array
of palates. Especially for larger parties, the
versatility of the menu is very important.
Restaurants that boast a large entree
selection that includes meat, poultry,
seafood, and even vegetarian dishes ensures
each guest has options.
• Examine the elbow room. Because dining
out has become such a luxury, comfort
should be another key consideration. Look
for a restaurant that provides ample elbow
room so everyone can relax and won’t feel
crowded.
• Be sure there are places to park. Chances
are, most guests will be driving to the party.
While it seems like an afterthought, the
restaurant should provide ample, and ideally
free, parking. Avoid restaurants that charge
for valet service or inquire if such service
can be included on the tab ahead of time.
• Reserve well in advance. If it’s a truly
special occasion, be sure to begin the process
of finding a restaurant as early as possible
and make a reservation the moment a
decision is made. Reservations can always
be cancelled should things not work out.

Gargas Roofing and
Construction can help you to
inspect your roof as soon as
weather allows it. The most
effective long term solution is
to reduce or eliminate any
sources of heat in the attic,
ventilate the attic space of the
roof properly and as simple as
it sounds keep gutters and
vents clean from the debris.
Be sure to have bath fans,
kitchen fans and 2nd floor
dryers terminate at walls not
roofs.
Eliminate or fix: uninsu-
lated recessed ceiling lights,
poor attic ventilation, uninsu-
lated folding attic stair open-
ings, heating ducts, furnace or
water heating equipment in
the attic and other similar
problems.
Also keep your eyes for
peeled shingle granules which
are a clear sign of serious wear
and tear. They might indicate
that the singles are at the end
of their lives.

struction today with your roof-
ing concerns, for new roof in-
stallation or re-roofing at 973-
