Michaels is a lifelong pet lover and pet adoption advocate. He has furry family members of his own, including a German shepherd named Tarkus Arlicicus. He’s even been known to pick up homeless pets while out on tour to help find them the loving homes they deserve. Which is why he’s working with PetSmart Charities® to end pet homelessness. His pet line at PetSmart® stores includes a Chance plush toy where 10 percent of the proceeds benefits Pet_Smart

Charities. Here’s how else you can im_prove the lives of homeless pets today: • Adopting: Adoption is easy to do and it doesn’t take a hero. If you’re ready to love and care for a pet, you can help save a life. Adoption opens up space at shelters, allowing room for more pets to come in and stay longer, giving them a better chance of finding a home. If you’re considering adoption, PetSmart Charities’ Adoptable Pets Locator can help you find your perfect match nearby. Visit www.petsmartcharities.org/adoption to learn more. • Donating: In a recent survey, the majority of respondents said they will choose to donate to a pet or animal charity during the holidays above other causes. The most important factor driving them to donate was knowing that their gift would help save pets. PetSmart Charities gives 84 cents of every dollar directly to help pets in need, one of the highest direct-donation percentages among all national animal welfare charities. Donations fund adoption programs at more than 2,000 animal rescue groups that have helped save more than 5 million pets. To make a donation, visit www.petsmartcharities.org/how-tohelp/donate. A donation can make an easy and meaningful gift for yourself, a fellow pet lover, relative or someone special who has it all. Lane Ce Just $25 can save a pet’s life by providing See sto such necessities as shelter space, food and veterinarian services.

Stock Up For Health And Happiness (NAPS)—Staying healthy over the holidays, experts advise, requires at least two simple steps: planning ahead and taking time for yourself. Fortunately, this can be simpler than many suspect because the “cool aisles” of the grocery store have many “secret weapons” to make holiday food preparation and entertaining easier and more enjoyable. Frozen and refrigerated foods provide an excellent opportunity for planning ahead for the holidays so you can spend less time in the kitchen and more time for yourself. It helps to “stock up” your freezer and fridge

Scent-Sational Gift Ideas

(NAPS)—Some people have a knack for giving gifts. Those who do often choose their presents based on the recipient’s personality, turning gifting into an art that brings pleasure to all. For example, for the woman who enjoys looking elegant and being beautifully scented, why not give a jewel of a fragrance and a jeweled watch to go with it? Both were originally designed by the legendary Elizabeth Taylor. The award-winning White Diamonds fragrance collection reflects the deep feminine warmth and classic enduring beauty of the woman who created it. The sensual floral fragrance is intoxicating and seducing with its complex layering of notes including Narcisse, Jasmine, Amber and Sandalwood. The rich, floral scent is available for the holidays in a beautiful gift set as well. At Macy’s and other fine department stores, it includes a 3.3–fl. oz. Eau de Toilette Spray Naturel, .5–fl. oz. frosted Eau de Parfum Spray Naturel, 3.3-oz. Perfumed Body Lotion and a 3.3–fl. oz. Gentle Moisturizing Body Wash. In addition, a beautiful goldtoned watch, encrusted with sparkling faux diamonds, is free with any White Diamonds purchase of $52 or more through December. The offer is limited to one gift per customer while supplies last. Lavish her with luxury and the beauty of White Diamonds.

Deck The Halls With Popcorn Trees (NAPS)—’Tis the season of decking halls and trimming trees, and now there’s a delicious way to do both—in the kitchen. There’s no chance of breaking heirloom ornaments when you’re decorating miniature Festive Popcorn Trees made from The Popcorn Board’s recipe. Roll up your sleeves, gather the kids and pull out your prettiest decorating sugars and sprinkles. Then turn marshmallows and popcorn into a scenic winter wonderland to display—or eat. Long ago, Christmas trees were trimmed with treats such as apples, nuts or dates. With Festive Popcorn Trees, your entire tree is edible. There’s no right or wrong way to decorate a tree, but if you’re not happy with the results, eat it and start again. It’s the ultimate eco-friendly way to trim a tree. And if you’re looking to trim fat and calories during this hectic season, pop up a bowl of plain popcorn to nibble on when hunger strikes. At 30 calories a cup, wholesome, whole grain popcorn is naturally low in fat and calories and the fiber can help fill you between meals. Leave the padding to jolly old St. Nick. Festive Popcorn Trees Yield: 10 trees 10 1

cups air-popped popcorn* 10-ounce bag miniature marshmallows 2 tablespoons butter 1 teaspoon vanilla extract decorating sugar (green, blue)** 1 tube of white frosting (with decorating tip) assorted small colorful candies, such as sprinkles and miniature silver dragées

Place popcorn in large bowl. Place marshmallows and butter in medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir until marshmallows are melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla extract. Pour mixture over popcorn in bowl. Toss well to coat popcorn evenly. Line a baking sheet with foil. Spray hands with nonstick cooking spray, then scoop up about 1 cup of popcorn mixture. Shape mixture into a cone shape, keeping the base flat. This forms the tree. Sprinkle tree with decorating sugar; place tree on baking sheet. Continue to make the rest of the trees. Pipe frosting on trees to make a garland, then decorate them with colorful candies. Serving suggestion: Place each tree on a sugar cookie and decorate your serving tray with shredded coconut to resemble snow. Notes: * It’s important that this recipe starts with unflavored white popcorn for best color and flavor. ** You can make your own colored sugar by adding food coloring to sugar, stirring in a bowl or shaking vigorously in a sealed container. Add more food coloring for more intense tones. For more information, visit www.popcorn.org. Tiny trees made of popcorn are in good taste for the holidays.
