A Lasting Gift: Take Time to Record Someone’s Story

February 2, 2012 § Leave a comment

Discount AnzoUSA 321205 Red/Smoke LED – Are you looking for a special lasting gift?

Why not give the gift of your time with a close relative or friend and record his/her life story? You could make up a gift card and put it into a Christmas or Hanukkah card, offering your time to sit with someone to record his/her story. Our lives are usually so full that offering our time is in itself a gift for any season.

Too few of us value our own lives and accomplishments. Maybe you have the time to write about your own life for a younger relative or you can write for an older relative who would enjoy telling his story. Writing your story for a child who is looking at Family History at school is invaluable and special for him or her. If you keep a journal of your time spent with a family over the holiday season, a child could add her/his thought to it. It would make memorable reading later on.

I have just been recording on a digital recorder, the memories of a lady of 94 whose family want her story and her experiences written down ( as well as recorded on CD). It is a gift they can all share at Christmas and it gives the lady who is telling her story, a great deal of pleasure. Another friend wanted to record her life for her daughters so I asked questions and she told her story into the recorder. I know it is wonderful for a family to have the audio recording after someone has died because it is another link with the person. I recorded my father in law who died 20 years ago; my grand children can now hear his voice and funny stories. That delights us.

Taking time to do this is therapeutic for the storyteller and the recorder. It reveals a keen interest in someone’s life and shows that another person cares deeply enough to take the time or spend the money to make a book our of the recording. If you have a personal digital recorder, you will find it an asset for interviewing older relatives. It is unobtrusive and it is voice activated. You can also upload to your computer to produce a CD as a gift.

February 2, 2012 § Leave a comment

Discount Moncler Maglione Trico Womens – In this day and age, environmental interest has become a big time subject. Most people are waking up to the fact that it takes each and every individual to contribute to the crucial task of cleaning up our environment. So we recycle anything we can to do our part. We make sure lights are turned off when we leave a room. Even cars are emerging as less fuel dependent and more environmentally friendly. But what most people don’t realize is that food waste is now turning into a problem. At the end of the day, households throw away a lot of food including fruit feelings, vegetables, meats, even egg shells. Landfills are slowly filling up with food waste which lets out damaging methane as it decomposes. Methane is far more detrimental to the environment than even carbon monoxide.

So what’s being done to help with this growing problem? The solution is the introduction of kitchen caddies. They are a safe way to dispose of food products. Kitchen caddies are small bins that rest under the sink. Let’s look at how these kitchen caddies are helpful to the environment.

What Happens when we Throw away Food?

Before looking at all of the ways that kitchen caddies are good for the environment, let’s take a quick look at what happens to food waste after we throw it away. When we throw food in the trash, it’s taken to the landfill where it takes several years to decompose. While decomposing, this food waste actually pollutes the environment while also taking up precious room at the landfills. With landfill space quickly filling up, this is a major environmental concern. However, by using kitchen caddies to recycle food, it can be collected with recyclable goods and discarded in a manner that is actually helpful to the environment. The food will decay easily and combined with other things to produce compost – which is helpful in a lot of different ways.

Exploring Your Family Tree

February 2, 2012 § Leave a comment

Cheap Thermo Scientific Forma Environmental – Researching your family’s genealogical history can be a great way of learning more about your distant ancestors. Even if a number of families do know a few things about their family tree, usually they have many divisions of the family which they do not know a thing about yet. Finding out more about the past of your family can often be a fascinating activity that you and your family can enjoy together. With the aid of the Internet, exploring the past can be easier than ever before. Don’t forget that public records that are written down, containers of old photos of the family, and perhaps even stories relayed by some older relatives can all contribute to your research of your family tree. If you do a great deal of investigation now and record the facts, your children will benefit greatly since they will know about some of their relatives who they never actually met in person. You will also feel a sense of accomplishment when you record your family history, because this information will be handed down from generation to generation.

The Best Place to Start

In most cases, starting with yourself and working your way backwards through your family’s history is the best approach. Document all the details and family history that you already know and you will have a better idea of everything you still need to do more research on. Record your details carefully, and make sure that any resources you use to find the information are cited. Even though you might get quite a bit of “word of mouth” details from relatives, you ought to always substantiate these facts by researching original documents, such as birth, death and marriage certificates. Still, verbal information can be a wealthy source of clues that can help you find the details you need. Your research will be made simpler if you utilize specially designed forms and also log sheets that are meant for genealogical data. Look online for templates, or even maybe make your own for anything you might need. If you wish to stay well organized then place these pages into a binder that also has sheet protectors you will be able to use for other photos and documents you come across.

How to Save Your Life When There Is a Fire

February 2, 2012 § Leave a comment

Discount Whiteside Ten Essential Router – FIRE. FIRE. FIRE.

How horrible these words must sound.

However, I never heard them.

I was already unconscious when the fire trucks arrived.

“Fire! Fire! Fire!” can be someone shouting the warning at the top of their lungs. It can be an electrical alarm system going off with a high decibel pitch. It can be the siren of a fire truck racing down the street.

Where there is fire, there is smoke. “Smoke Inhalation” is also called “Carbon Monoxide Poisoning”, and it is what happened to me.

There are five possible outcomes from being in a fire:

1) You walk away unscathed.

2) You get burned.

3) You get carbon monoxide poisoning.

4)
You get carbon monoxide poisoning and you are burned.

5) You die.

I fall into the third category. I was not burned. I was saved. It was a medical miracle – I was told that the level of carbon monoxide measured in my system was enough to kill someone of my age and body weight. I live, but in some sense my life was taken, because it left me left me “disabled” with a Traumatic Brain Injury. This has changed irrevocably.

A rule of thumb is that you only have about 90 seconds (depending on body weight) to get out of a burning building before you get overcome by smoke and lose consciousness. The carbon monoxide lulls you into a false sense of comfort. It’s like a drug; it makes you more sleepy, it numbs you to what’s going on.

Fires usually break out when you are awake. However, most fatal fires occur when you are asleep at home, in bed, at night. Ninety seconds isn’t much time to take action. This is why many people never wake up.
