Homecoming for Seniors –
An Idea to Promote
a great idea for your church is a homecoming for seniors. As a deacon in my church I want to promote senior communication. Also there are a lot of preconceptions of the elderly. One would say family values are the backbone of our nation. If you don't involve seniors in the family mode you're not using a natural resource. Not all seizures are religious which is a misconception by most young people. If you can involve them in your church there are other methods to involve them in the community. One way is to have them volunteer in community service. Usually young people respond well to seniors and community projects. Most of us seniors want to be useful. We can be by visiting the infirm. One problem with seniors this transportation. Some can get caregivers that drive. But this is not sometimes a good idea since we have problems with insurance unreliable drivers.. So what is the answer. You will find that you don't have to lock yourself up. Most seniors think that they are stranded. Many seniors don't realize that their agencies that will provide rides to and from doctors grocery stores and other places. Especially if one has disabilities you usually Lie to public transportation for point-to-point pickup. Another answer is organizations like people care in Riverside that provide free rides to local areas. You must as a senior investigate what is available. This is the first step in your battle to extend your range. Sometimes keeping your car insurance and sticker costs are not the best option. Even catching a cab is cheaper than the overall maintenance of your car and getting drivers for it. If you can drive your peace of mind may be stressed out. The highways are so busy that even professional drivers are at great risk. Why stress yourself out when it's cheaper to get a taxi or better yet a free ride from a friend, an organization, and public transportation.

So what am I telling you? Get busy and find transportation through information. This blog will help you. At least if you're not in the community covered you can get the idea where to look in your area for your needs.

safe cleaning tips

mildew can be killed with nontoxic, all natural substances like vinegar. Flag this photo
Mold and mildew are commonly found anywhere that maintains a high concentration of moisture for extended periods. Basements, bathrooms, kitchens and outdoor storage are frequent hosts to mold and mildew. Plumbing- or roof-leak locations are also areas to find mold and mildew.
Mold and MildewMold and mildew are microorganisms akin to fungi. They feed on moisture and damp conditions. Mold is everywhere, both indoors and out. Some molds perform very important functions, but indoor mold typically is more harmful than beneficial. Though the negative health effects of mold are far from settled, researchers recognize that mold and mildew, and the spores produced by them, cause problems for allergy sufferers and people with asthma.
VinegarVinegar is one of the natural biocides used to kill bacteria and microorganisms, along with salt and citrus oil. Vinegar, as purchased on the store shelf, is a diluted version of acetic acid at a 5 percent concentration. According to Gina Marino, the microbiologist for Good Housekeeping magazine, vinegar reduces mold by 90 percent and has a 99.9 percent kill rate on bacteria. It is safe to drink and its strong smell disappears after it has dried. It works on porous surfaces such as grout, as well as on nonporous surfaces.
FunctionUsing vinegar to clean mold or mildew is very simple. Wipe a cloth wet with undiluted white vinegar straight from the bottle over surfaces or spray them with the same vinegar and leave it to soak in before wiping with a clean cloth. It is important to use a clean cloth both before and after cleaning moldy areas so that the mold does not spread. However, vinegar or any other mold killer will not keep mold away unless the long-term damp conditions that caused the mold or mildew to occur are corrected.
ConsiderationsVinegar can also be used to clean mold off heavy-duty leather goods such as horse tack. Wiping the tack down with a cloth soaked in white vinegar mixed with water and letting it dry thoroughly out in the open removes and kills the mold and mildew. A follow-up with a leather conditioner that contains a mold inhibitor will return the tack's suppleness.
MisconceptionsVinegar is an effective natural mold and mildew killer, but chlorine bleach is one of the most commonly used agents. However, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recommends against bleach because it is only effective in killing surface mold, and does not affect the root system of the organism. This means that the mold will keep coming back. Chlorine bleach is very harsh, especially when used in tight spaces, and the fumes can exacerbate the problems of asthma and allergy sufferers. It causes respiratory and eye irritations even in those without asthma and allergies. Chlorine bleach that is not
