Used Buys Made Easy By Ann Bare

New vehicles are great, but unlike homes, they begin to depreciate in value the moment they are driven off the lot. Because of that fact, some people prefer to buy used. With a thorough inspection and detailing, used vehicles can be just as nice as new ones on the showroom floor. If the time has come for you to buy a vehicle and you're focusing on used ones, here are some tips to make your purchase easier. Determine first what kind of vehicles you are interested in. Are you looking for a truck, SUV or car? What models appeal to you? What features appeal to you? Research and compare vehicles online. Keep in mind that the more popular the vehicle, the harder it will be to find used. Be flexible and consider similar models. Review your budget. Do you have a lot of cash on hand? Used is a great choice, particularly if you have enough to pay for the vehicle outright. If you can't afford the whole kit and caboodle, a healthy

down payment will make it easier to find a good loan. When it comes to financing, shop around. Don't assume the dealership is your best option. It might not offer financing, and even if it does, you might not qualify for it or like the terms. A bank loan might provide you with better rates, especially if you have a good credit rating and a good down payment. Once you have an idea of what you want and can afford, you can start the shopping. Don't leave a stone unturned in your search for a used vehicle. Check out all of the possibilities from dealerships to private parties. Browse the classified and dealership ads. Check bulletin board and online listings. Keep an eye out for sale signs on vehicles. Take a cruise through major dealership and independent car lots. Get a feel for what's out there before you consider making any offers. When you have a list of prospects, take the time to check them out. Find out as much as you can about each possibility by obtaining a vehicle history report. This will provide you with an extensive review of the history of the

vehicle, such as whether the odometer has been rolled back. Ask for a copy of the service records as well. That way, you can see how well the vehicle has been maintained. Never buy a vehicle without a few test drives. Bring along someone who knows about vehicles and listen closely as you start up the engine. Go for a drive during the day and see how the vehicle handles. Does it run smoothly? Does it have enough room, in particular headroom and legroom? Does it feel right? You should check out the condition of the interior and exterior as well. Damage there could mean damage in the mechanics. Should you suspect there are issues, trust your instincts. More than likely, there are problems, and to be certain, you should arrange to have the vehicle inspected by a qualified mechanic. Even if everything seems fine, you might still want to have the vehicle checked out by a mechanic. If you are really concerned about getting a lemon, you might want to look into purchasing a certified used car. These typically cost more, but they have been

thoroughly inspected at the dealership and often come with a warranty. When you have found a vehicle you like and are ready to make an offer, be prepared to haggle. Make a low offer, somewhere in the ballpark, to show that you are serious. Then get ready to wheel and deal. Know how much the vehicle is worth and how much you are willing to pay for it, and should you reach either limit, back out. Be patient but firm. Don't exceed your budget or fall for other pitches like an extended warranty. If the salesperson gets too pushy, walk away. There are other dealerships offering quality selection and service. Insist on a contract when the price negotiations are done and take the time to review it carefully. Know what you are getting into before you sign on the dotted line. If there is repair work to be done, get it in writing. If you are buying the car outright, make sure you get the title and the previous owners have signed it. Buying a used vehicle is not a decision to rush into. Take your time, do your homework, and with any luck, there won't be any surprises.

Roast Chestnuts

Longing for something a little different over the holidays? All you have to do is just follow some brief and simple steps, and you’re well on your way to enjoying a cozy, storybook-style winter’s night and warm up with some traditionally toasty chestnuts. What you’ll need Chestnuts Salt Baking Sheets Paring Knives Baking sheets 1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. 2. Clean off chestnuts. 3. Use a sharp paring knife to cut an X into one side of each chestnut, or prick chestnuts with a fork to allow steam to escape. 4.Arrange chestnuts on a baking sheet or in a shallow pan, with the cut or pricked sides up. 5. Roast in oven for 15 to 25 minutes, or until chestnuts are tender and easy to peel.

6. Peel the nuts when they are cool enough to handle, and enjoy. Tips & Warnings t Use dry, firm chestnuts; soft chestnuts might be rotted. t Try a little salt on your chestnuts. t Be sure to remove the inner skins as well as the shells. t Chestnuts that have not been cut or pricked to allow steam to escape may explode, even after being removed from the heat.

TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH By Paul G. Donohue, M.D.

In the Dark About Herpes

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have been with my husband for 33 years, and for the past six I have been suspicious of him being unfaithful. I went to the doctor and tested negative for HIV, but I was positive for herpes 1 and 2. My husband claims I could have had this since before we met and says that he’s completely innocent. Do you think I could have had this for 30 years and not known it? It seems rather unrealistic to me. -- D.F. ANSWER: Herpes viruses are a group of common viruses that share several traits, one of which is that they all stay dormant in the body and may cause recurrences in times of stress. Herpes simplex 1 causes an outbreak of cold sores: These often come out when people are ill or stressed. Herpes simplex 2 usually causes genital lesions. About 20 percent continued oN next page...

of adults in the U.S. are positive for HSV-2; many or even most of them don’t know they have it. Once you acquire HSV-2, it stays in your body forever, and may (or may not) cause recurrent disease, which most commonly looks like a clear, fluid-filled blister. These are very infectious, but it is possible to transmit the virus even when there are no symptoms. It is possible that you acquired the condition 30 or more years ago. The test isn’t able to tell how long you’ve had it.

The booklet on herpes and genital warts explains these two common infections in detail. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue -- No. 1202W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery. ••• DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My husband tells me I have bad breath. I have seen my dentist and done all the things I was told to do, but there hasn’t been any improvement. I have tried many mouthwashes, without success. What more can I do? -- W.B. ANSWER: You were right in starting out with your dentist. When no oral conditions are found that produce bad breath, then the most likely cause is mouth bacteria that produce odoriferous, sulfur compounds. Let me repeat what your dentists told you for the sake of others. Brush after every meal, and brush your tongue as far back as you can. You might want to get a tongue scraper for the backmost part of the tongue. That’s where the sulfur-producing bacteria live. Keep your mouth moist by drinking water or chewing sugar-free gum.

December 19 - 25, 2013 THIS IS A HAMMER By Samantha Mazzotta

Broken Windowpane Is Easy to Replace Q: During a recent party, there was a bit of an incident in the kitchen, and one of the panes in the window above the sink was shattered. I removed the bits of glass and covered the empty space with cardboard, held in place with duct tape. How easy is it to replace just the pane of glass? -- Candace G., Ithaca, N.Y. A: Replacing a single glass pane is a pretty straightforward job, one that can be accomplished quickly once you have the supplies and tools at hand. You’ll need, of course, a replacement pane of glass. Because the original pane was shattered, the exact dimensions need to be figured out. Do this by measuring the width and height of the frame. Then, subtract 1/16 inch from each side -- this will allow a bit of space for the new glass to expand and contract in changing temperatures.

December 19 - 25, 2013

Volume 8, Week 51 When cleaning up the broken glass, did you save the small metal tabs or spring clips that were spaced around the frame? If so, keep them around to reuse; otherwise, you’ll need to buy replacements. The metal tabs are called glazier’s points and are used in wooden frames; the spring clips are used in metal frames. These help hold the windowpane snugly in place. Head for the hardware store with measurements in hand. Most stores will sell precut windowpanes in standard sizes that match or nearly match your measurements; otherwise, they can cut the glass to your specified size. Make sure you have the following on hand for the repair: Window putty (also known as glazier’s putty), a putty knife, glazier’s points or spring clips (for metal frames), a wire brush, steel wool, fine-grit sandpaper and a soft cloth. Remove the cardboard and tape patch and clean up the frame to prepare it for the new pane. Take out any remaining points or clips and carefully scrape away the old window putty. This may be the most time-consuming part, as the putty may have hardened and adhered to the frame. Be patient and work carefully. Once the old putty is removed, wipe the frame clean. Then add a new line of putty by forming a ball in the palm of your hand, then rolling it out into a long, thin line about the width of a pencil. Press this line of putty around the edge of the frame on the side on which the new pane will be attached. Insert the new pane of glass, pressing it against the new putty. Hold it in place with one hand, and with the other hand, insert glazier’s points or clips. Points should be placed every 8 inches around the frame and pressed into the wood using the putty knife or a similar tool. Clips can be placed in existing holes in the metal frame. Use a little more putty to secure the pane on the side closest to you, by dabbing it into areas where the glass touches the frame. Scrape away excess with the putty knife. Clean excess or spilled putty from the window and the frame using the putty knife and a wet cloth. Let the putty dry and cure for about four days before painting. © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.
