Meet The New Dietary Guidlines (NAPSA)—The numbers can seem scary: More than 81 million Americans have cardiovascular disease (CVD) and more than 23 million have diabetes, which is a strong risk factor for CVD. There are, however, simple steps you can take to help keep yourself and your family out of such statistics, according to the new Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010. “Heart disease can be prevented 80 percent of the time with a healthy lifestyle,” noted Suzanne Steinbaum, D.O., cardiologist and director of women’s heart health, Heart and Vascular Institute, Lenox Hill Hospital, New York. “An ounce of prevention by choosing the right types of fat, carbohydrate and protein as well as physical activity can lead to a pound of cure ... without extra pounds.” Here are tips on how: • Eat a balanced diet of nutrientdense foods, mainly plant based. • Be mindful of portion sizes and

Well-being is about taking ownership of your health and taking small steps each day to improve it. total daily calories. • Eat two servings of fish a week and choose lean meats.

• Aim to be physically active at least 30 minutes a day. • Don’t smoke and try to avoid secondhand smoke. • Get adequate sleep and minimize stress. • Make simple dietary swaps like water instead of soda pop, skim or fatfree dairy products in place of full-fat versions and canola oil rather than other oils or solid fat. The government’s new dietary guidelines call for saturated fat intake to be less than 10 percent of total daily calories, replacing those calories with unsaturated fat. Lowering saturated fat intake to 7 percent of total daily calories can further reduce the risk of CVD. “The key to lowering risk of both heart disease and type 2 diabetes is to replace saturated fat with health-promoting mono- and polyunsaturated fats,” said Jim Painter, Ph.D., R.D., chair, School of Family and Consumer Sciences, Eastern Illinois University.

“Such replacement decreases total and ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol, improves insulin responsiveness and reduces markers of inflammation. However, replacing saturated fat with refined or sugar-dense carbohydrates may actually have the opposite effect.” Fortunately, there’s an everyday cooking oil that perfectly fits the dietary guidelines: canola oil. With the least saturated fat and most omega-3 fat of all cooking oils, canola oil delivers on heart health. In fact, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized a qualified health claim for canola oil regarding its potential to reduce the risk of heart disease when used in place of saturated fat. The types of fat consumed are more important in influencing the risk of CVD than the total amount of fat in the diet. For more information, go to www.canolainfo.org, Facebook. com/canolainfo or Twitter.com/ canolainfo.

All Natural Fertilizer Options for the Garden Organic fertilizers can be just as effective as their chemical counterparts while providing health benefits chemical pesticides cannot. Organic fertilizers are effective at strengthening the soil for both lawns and planting beds. There are a number of different materials the home gardener can try, some of which may already be around the house. Compost: Compost is often called “black gold” because of its rich nutritional content and how it can quickly amend the quality of the soil. Compost heaps or bins can be set up in the yard so that individuals can manufacture their own compost from scraps of material used around the house. Discarded fruit peels, eggshells, leaves, and paper can be added to the compost pile. Over time, natural bacteria will break down the materials until they form an effective fertilizer. Manure: Manure remains one of the best and most practical fertilizers out there. It’s easy to find, and any animal that eats a plant-based diet will produce manure that will be acceptable for the garden or lawn. Avoid manure from animals that eat meat as the feces may contain harmful bacteria or parasites. Not only will manure add nutrients to the soil, it will also help with moisture retention. Fish meal: Made from ground and dried fish scraps, this fertilizer is a good

source of nitrogen. It can provide a boost to soil in the early spring that will last well through the growing season. • Elemental sulfur: A lawn that has turned yellow may be lacking in the right levels of sulfur. Elemental sulfur, when used sparingly, can help boost levels and return the lawn to normal. • Blood meal: This dried blood product is collected from slaughtered animals and can be another nitrogen booster for the soil. Vegetarian gardeners may avoid its use for this reason, however. Some gardening enthusiasts say that blood meal also may be a deterrent for deer and other animals who like to nibble on garden plants. • Peat moss: Peat moss is a type of moss that grows on the top of peat bogs. Peat moss is able to hold large quantities of water in its cells, which makes it a good soil additive to help retain moisture at the roots of plants. This is handy when dealing with very sandy soil or plants that need an increased moisture content to grow well. Natural fertilizers and soil ammendments can make the lawn and garden a safe place for pets, children and other animals to venture. They’re also a good idea for those looking to preserve the health of the planet.

April 17 - 23

ARIES – Mar 21/Apr 20

ARIES – Mar 21/Apr 20

ARIES – Mar 21/Apr 20

Aries, it will be a momentous week and you’re not sure what to expect. Take your camera along and document everything because it promises to be memorable.

Aries, it’s hard to concentrate this week but you have to try to devote your attention to the task at hand. Avoid distractions and focus on the job that needs to be done.

Aries, a change in scenery would be well timed. While it’s not good to run away from your problems, some time away could provide a new perspective. TAURUS – April 21/May 2 Taurus, foster closer relationships with family this week because you might need them in the days to come. It always helps to have someone you can trust nearby.

TAURUS – April 21/May 2

Taurus, stop and sit for a few minutes because there won’t be much time for that in the days to come. Things will be moving at a breakneck pace. GEMINI – May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, there are more opportunities for success this week than you originally thought. If you devote a few hours each day, you will see your goals realized faster. CANCER – June 22/July 22 Cancer, asking for help isn’t always easy, but you may have to open up and solicit friends or family for a little assistance. You will be able to repay the favor soon. LEO – July 23/August 23 Leo, be cognizant of how your tone of voice can infer meaning into what you are saying. If you’re trying to keep something a secret, you have to be careful. VIRGO – Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, if you’re down in the dumps it’s high time you change your situation. It may not be easy but you have to take the first step. Aquarius plays a big role. LIBRA – Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, just when you thought you couldn’t have any more bad luck, things do a complete 180. Now is the time to appreciate all of your good fortune. SCORPIO – Oct 24/Nov 22 There’s little time for staying put, Scorpio. You have a lot of things to accomplish even though one big thing has been taken care of. It could put a strain on your finances. SAGITTARIUS – Nov 23/Dec 21 With the tax-filing deadline on the horizon, it is wise to get all your financial ducks in a row, Sagittarius. If you’ve put off anything, now is the time to get it tackled. CAPRICORN – Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, unexpected problems at home continue to try your patience. There is no way to avoid the situation, so you simply have to deal with it for the time being. AQUARIUS – Jan 21/Feb 18 Something is bound to upset the apple cart this week, Aquarius. How you deal with it will go a long way to showing others how you operate under pressure. PISCES – Feb 19/Mar20 Take the initiative at work, Pisces. Show your boss that you have the desire to get ahead and the brains to go with the package.

TAURUS – April 21/May 2

Taurus, you’re itching for a change but you don’t know whether it should be a career change or a change in location. Think it over a little more. GEMINI – May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, a cloud of uncertainty is looming over an important relationship. There’s no surefire way to know if this person is a keeper. You can only hang in there. CANCER – June 22/July 22 Cancer, just when you thought you had your mind made up something changes your entire line of thinking. Embrace this new line of thought. LEO – July 23/August 23 Leo, return to your comfort zone to ease some nerves and concerns. Take a calm, methodical approach to life this week and reap the rewards. VIRGO – Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, take some time to yourself the next few days because the coming days figure to be hectic. It’s time to start thinking about a vacation. LIBRA – Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, opportunities to further your education present themselves in the coming days. Think about these opportunities carefully before making any decisions. SCORPIO – Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, until you settle down, expect your finances to be in a bit of disarray. It may be good to sit down with a planner and work through the bigger issues. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Unless you open up to others, you won’t be making many friends this week. Try to explore other opportunities for socialization, Sagittarius. It could get lonely. SAGITTARIUS – Nov 23/Dec 21 There’s more to you than you let others see, Capricorn. Sometimes leaving a little mystery can be a good thing. But don’t let it get in the way of relationships. AQUARIUS – Jan 21/Feb 18 Don’t hold out on someone who has been counting on you, Aquarius. When you look at your schedule, you will find you have time to fit everything in. PISCES – Feb 19/Mar20 You may have to do a little damage control, Pisces. This week simply swallow your pride and get things done.

GEMINI – May 22/Jun 21

Think again before you make a large purchase, Gemini. Overspending may not be prudent at this juncture in time. Big expenses loom on the horizon, and you need to be prepared.

CANCER – June 22/July 22

Someone is thinking about you, Cancer, and it could lead to romantic endeavors. The excitement will be in discovering just who has his or her eyes pointed in your direction.

LEO – July 23/August 23

Leo, a complete change of direction is possible this week. Indecision could cause you to act rashly and that could lead to irreversible damage.

VIRGO – Aug 24/Sept 22

Virgo, stop trying to prove yourself to others. Be your own person and live your own life and you will be much happier for it. Realize that you can’t compete on the same level all the time.

LIBRA – Sept 23/Oct 23

Preparation is essential to avoid feeling out of control, Libra. Don’t worry, when you put your mind to it, you can accomplish just about anything.

SCORPIO – Oct 24/Nov 22

Scorpio, it may be time for you to start over, but this is not necessarily a bad thing. You may find a new path that is much more to your liking and new relationships to boot.

SAGITTARIUS – Nov 23/Dec 21

Don’t try to push your point of view on someone else, Sagittarius. It won’t be well received at this juncture in time. Let others have their opinions for the moment.

CAPRICORN – Dec 22/Jan 20

There’s no time to relax, Capricorn. Just when you tackle one project, another takes its place. Fortunately, you have an abundance of energy to keep you going.

AQUARIUS – Jan 21/Feb 18

Aquarius, you may get some news you didn’t expect and it will take a while to absorb all of this information. When you think about it, the change could be good.

PISCES – Feb 19/Mar20

Pisces, soliciting help doesn’t mean you are abandoning your independence. It just means you’re smart.

FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY

April 24 - 30 ARIES – Mar 21/Apr 20 Romance may be on your mind, Aries. That’s because you met a wonderful person and are interested in seeing where this new relationship will go. TAURUS – April 21/May 2 Taurus, you may feel artistically inspired this week, which could play out in projects anywhere from painting pottery to making home improvements. GEMINI – May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, the wedding of a friend could inspire thoughts of a romantic nature. Maybe you’re thinking of taking a relationship to a new level or beginning a new one. CANCER – June 22/July 22 Cancer, you aspire to learn a new skill or take on a new project. Definitely forge ahead because it will mean meeting new people and learning other interesting things. LEO – July 23/August 23 Love, romance and marriage are on your mind, Leo. If you’re involved, it could be time to strengthen the relationship. Those unattached could find a special someone. VIRGO – Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, expect an unexpected visitor in the coming days. This could mean a complete overhaul of your schedule and living space. It’s time to get to work. LIBRA – Sept 23/Oct 23 Your mindset will be intense this week, Libra. Friends and family will find it very difficult to sway your opinion and change your mind. SCORPIO – Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, be prepared for a busy week that gives your bank account a boost. You may begin a new work assignment that requires a lot of creative energy. SAGITTARIUS – Nov 23/Dec 21 This week you’re more interested in the ways to promote personal health, Sagittarius. Your research could extend into holistic arts, exploring natural ways to boost health. CAPRICORN – Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, stay out of bookstores because you could spend a fortune trying to satiate your need to absorb information this week. If you must, visit the library. AQUARIUS – Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, an encounter with someone new puts you on a new course of action for which you cannot gain enough information fast enough. PISCES – Feb 19/Mar20 Thoughts of a career change are prominent this week, Pisces. It may be a good time to finally act on these ideas.

Recycling Aerosol Cans (NAPSA)—A little knowledge may help you avoid throwing out something valuable and help the environment at the same time. Currently, too many aerosol cans take up landfill space while the valuable steel they’re made from is not being recycled and reused. Steel aerosol containers are every bit as recyclable as other steel cans.

Known for his famous ride in 1775 and his work as a silversmith, Paul Revere is said to have put ads in a Bston newspaper offering his services as a dentist.. *** The first pencil was invented in England in 1565. *** Big shots are only little shots who keep shooting. –Christopher Morley *** It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer. –Albert Einstein

The words to the “Battle Hymn of the Republic” were written by Julia Ward Howe in 1861 after visiting army camps around Washington D.C. *** A mule won’t sink in quicksand but a donkey will. *** It is said that Picasso could draw before he could walk and his first word was the Spanish word for pencil. *** A lef-handed painter, Michelangelo painted his famous “David and Goliath” with David holding his sling in his left hand.

*** When Auguste Rodin exhibited his first important bronze sculptures in 1878, they were so realistic that some people thought he had sacrificed live models inside the casts.

*** Don’t worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you. –Robert Fulghum

*** Of all crops planted annually in the U.S., cotton has the longest growing season. Its growing season lasts from 150 to 180 days.

According to Greg Crawford, executive director of the Steel Recycling Institute, one reason for the disparity may be that “many aerosol products aren’t in the kitchen where a lot of household recyclables are generated from; they’re in the bathroom or other side of the house, and it creates a little bit of a disconnect.” To help bridge that disconnect, many steel aerosol cans now have a “please recycle when empty” logo. In addition, many recycling programs, looking to maximize the diversion of recyclables from landfills, are informing consumers that steel aerosol containers are easily recyclable once empty through normal use. For more information, see http://recycle-steel.org.

*** When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. –Franklin D. Roosevelt

*** Most lipstick contains fish scales! *** Some of the more intriguing names that the Pilgrims gave to their babies included Ashes, Dust, Earth, Delivery, Increase and Weep-not. ***

from the Latin “aperire,” meaninng “to open,” as do the flower buds that month. *** Chickens can’t swallow while they aaare upside down. *** Roman sstatues were often made with detachable heads, so that one head could be removed and replaced by another. *** Smelling bananas and/or green apples (smelling, not eating) can help you lose weight. ••• Audrey Hepburn’s given name originally was Andrey. “Andrey” is a feminine form of “Andrew.” Belgianborn Hepburn changed the “n” to a “u” to become Audrey. ••• Gallaudet University was the first school for the education of the deaf and hard of hearing in the world. Since its first commencement in 1869, all of its diplomas have been signed by the current U.S. presidtn of the time. ••• A beaver can hold its breath for about 45 minutes. *** In the state of Colorado, a pet cat, if loose, must have a taill-ight.

FUN BY THE NUMBERS Like puzzles? Then you’ll love sudoku. This mind-bending puzzle will have you hooked from the moment you square off, so sharpen your pencil and put your sudoku savvy to the test! HERE’S HOW IT WORKS: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle.

TAURUS APRIL 21 - MAY 20 YOU ARE PERSISTENT, PRACTICAL, RELIABLE, & HAVE NATURAL ABILITY IN BUSINESS & INVESTING.

APRIL BIRTHSTONE THE “UNCONQUERABLE DIAMOND April is the luckiest month of all, since diamond is its birthstone. More and more women are dressing in these brilliant, dazzling gemstones as effortlessly as they throw on their favorite sweater. Actresses Gwyneth Paltrow and Halle Berry and super models Cindy Crawford and Stella Tennant, among others, are seen everywhere wearing their diamond solitaire necklaces. Most diamonds are more than 100 million years old, and many are more than three billion years old, making diamonds the oldest of all gemstones. They also are the hardest substance known to man, made

of carbon that is crystallized deep within the earth. First discovered more than 3,000 years ago in India, diamonds are found today in remote parts of the world, like Australia, Russia, Botswana and South Africa. Their unique hardness and high refractive index have inspired legends. To the Greeks, they were teardrops from the gods. To the Romans, they came from the falling stars that tipped the arrow of Eros, the god of love. For Hindus, diamonds were the lightning that armed the hand of the god Indra. Today, diamonds are more popular than ever. “To have a piece of diamond jewelry is to have the quintessential piece of jewelry,” says Melvyn Kirtley, vice president and general manager of Tiffany’s flagship store on New York’s Fifth Ave. “The rarity, beauty and quality of diamonds through history has not

changed. People still desire them and desire them more than ever.” Women now are buying diamonds for themselves, notes Lynn Ramsey, president of the Jewelry Information Center, a New York-based trade association. “What’s new is that customers are more educated, and as more and more women gain professional ranks, they want quality stones.” Vincent Polisano, a designer of the Diana Vincent collection of fine jewelry, says, “Over the last four years, the trend is toward women purchasing more important pieces of diamond jewelry, mostly in diamond earrings and larger stones for solitaire rings and necklaces.” When it comes to wearing diamonds, there is no wrong way. Diamond brooches adorn business suits. Diamond studs are worn to the gym. This ground swell of wearing diamonds every day started a few years ago when designers like John Galliano and Donna Karan popularized them on their runways. Most recently, major European designers used elaborate Belle Époque settings and Oscar de la Renta showed diamonds exclusively in his collections. A lot of upwardly mobile professional women took note. They are today’s diamond customers who want diamonds, can afford them and don’t have to wait for an engagement or 25th wedding anniversary to own them. Nor is there one style or trend that customers want. “The news in diamonds,” says Polisano, “is just a lot of wonderful work by many different designers.” Never before have so many American designers marketed

This 2.6-carat emerald-cut diamond ring from Hammerman is set in platinum. Three-stone engagement rings are growing in popularity. diamond jewelry under their own names. Noteworthy are Henry Dunay, Whitney Boin, Jose Hess and Michael Bondanza. And, at Tiffany’s, their classic six-prong setting always is popular, but the store’s Diamonds By the Yard necklaces of round diamonds set in platinum or 18karat gold typify the diamonds-for-day trend. When purchasing diamonds, customers adhere to the four C’s — cut, color, clarity and carat weight — but increasingly they seek finer cut stones. “Today, customers understand that it is the cutting that releases the true brilliance of a stone,” says Polisano. With something so precious, remember to rely on a well-established jeweler with a wide selection of merchandise who is qualified to determine a diamond’s value and quality. Also, consider diamonds in pink, yellow and blue, which are gaining popularity. Little wonder the Greeks named diamonds adamas. It means unconquerable.

Butterflies Are a Spring Spectacle Few harbingers of spring are more spectacular to look at than the variety of butterflies that take to the skies after they emerge from chrysalis. Although it is widely known that butterflies and moths go through a metamorphosis to turn into their finished forms, many are unaware just how many steps it takes for a butterfly to be ready to fly. 1. A butterfly begins its life as an egg, which a female butterfly lays on a particular plant that the species of butterfly prefers to eat. This is called a host plant. Butterflies are very particular about the type of plant that they eat. Certain species will only eat one type of plant or closely related varieties. 2. When a butterfly hatches from the egg, it is called a larva, or a first instar caterpillar. The insect is very small and does nothing but eat from the host plant. 3. Caterpillars are voracious eaters, and they grow very quickly. The trouble is that their skin cannot grow. A new, larger skin must be formed. To do this the caterpillar must molt its old skin so that

plant stem. the new, larger skin can emerge. As it 6.

terfly is very vulnerable until its wings are ready and dry. 8. An adult butterfly eats nectar and reproduces to begin the life cycle anew. Relatively speaking, a butterfly has a short life span. Some species live only a few days. Others may live up to a year. This can make viewing a spectacularly hued butterfly in a spring garden even more poignant for the observer. More than 700 species of butterflies are found in North America. In order to attract them to the backyard, homeowners can plant wildlife that nurtures all stages of the metamorphosis. Adult butterflies looking for nectar will seek out plants in the sunlight; rarely do they feed in the shade. Plants should have red, yellow, orange, pink, or purple blossoms. Flat-topped or clustered flowers are preferred, as are short flower tubes that enable the butterfly’s proboscis to fit in easily

When Looking For Work Is Your Job (NAPSA)—Searching for and starting a new job can cause people to spend money when they may be short on funds. A bright spot is that some of those expenses may be tax-deductible. Unemployed And Searching For A New Job Taxpayers—particularly the unemployed and underemployed—should file tax returns to claim all tax credits and deductions they are entitled to on their tax returns, to ensure they get the largest tax refund they are due. Remember, all income must be reported to the IRS, regardless of the source. It does not matter if it’s from unemployment compensation (all of which is subject to federal income tax this year), tips, a lawn-mowing business or working as a nanny. While looking for a new job, keep good financial records because items used exclusively for the job search are taxdeductible if the job is in the same field. Among these expenses are resumé development, professional placement services and unreimbursed mileage, airfare and hotel expenses for interview travel. Moving For A New Job If relocating for a new job, unreimbursed moving expenses may be eligible deductions that do not have to be itemized. These are the eligibility requirements: • Any moving expenses incurred within one year from the first day of

work • The new job would have increased the taxpayer’s commute by more than 50 miles • If the taxpayer was previously unemployed, the new job must be at least 50 miles from the taxpayer’s old home • Taxpayers must be employed at least 39 weeks during the first 12 months after the move. Starting A New Job Expenses for unreimbursed items necessary for working, such as computers, mobile phones, training that allows workers to keep their current positions, union dues and required uniforms may be eligible tax deductions. To be eligible, these items must be required by the employer and used exclusively for work purposes. Use the H&R Block job deduction guide to learn what expenses are typically claimed for certain occupations. Eligible job expenses must be claimed as itemized tax deductions and they must total more than 2 percent of adjusted gross income; only the portion of job deductions and other miscellaneous itemized deductions that exceed 2 percent of adjusted gross income may be claimed.

do not have access to employerprovided insurance may be added to their parents’ health insurance policies. This benefit is not taxable. 5.

(NAPSA)—Here are 10 tips to help take the guesswork out of tax season: 1. Put your 2 percent raise to work—Taxpayers get a 2 percent raise in 2011 from the Tax Relief Act of 2010, giving workers who earn $50,000 a year an extra $1,000 in their paychecks. 2. Unemployed required to file— All unemployment benefits will be taxed this year, unlike last year, when the first $2,400 was tax-free. 3. Sandwich generation gets tax relief—“Sandwich generation” taxpayers—those supporting their parents and their own children—may be able to claim a $3,650 qualifying relative exemption. 4. Health insurance for adult children starts—Children under 27 who

Grass Free Landscaping a Viable Alternative Many homeowners equate a beautiful landscape to rolling acres of pristine lawn. But changes in the climate and widespread seasonal restrictions on water use each year could change the way people think about outfitting their yards. There are many reasons people choose to forgo grass and opt for different ornamental elements in their yards. Cost is one factor. While grass seed is relatively inexpensive, the upkeep, including mowing, fertilizing, re-seeding, and watering, requires a significant investment of both time and money. Many homeowners choose to lay down sod to create a beautiful lawn, an expensive option for homeowners with vast landscapes. The environment is another reason homeowners look for grass alternatives. Grass requires a lot of upkeep, much of which is not environmentally friendly. For example, maintaining a pristine lawn requires the use of a gaspowered mower and oftentimes the application of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Seeking alternatives to grass can be friendly on both the wallet and the environment. Grass-Free Landscaping Alternatives For those who are ready to say goodbye to grass, there are many alternatives. * Ground cover: Homeowners who still desire the look of green can choose among different types of ground cover that will quickly fill in the landscape. Clover, low-growing evergreen plants and ivy are some of the more popular ground cover alternatives. * Rocks: Decorative rocks intermingled with native plants can add dimension and color to the yard. Once rocks are placed, there is little upkeep except for pulling the errant weeds. * Mulch: A less expensive alternative to rocks is mulch. Mulch is availthe credit if they close on a house before May 1, 2011. 8. Energy credit reduced— For 2011, the lifetime maximum for the Energy Property Credit is reduced from $1,500 to $500 for improvements meeting specific energy guidelines. 9. Adoption Credit fully refundable in 2010 and 2011—The Adoption Credit can be claimed for qualified expenses up to $13,170 for 2010 and $13,360 for 2011. For 2010

Grass-free alternatives, such as ground cover mixed with patio stones, can be an option for homeowners looking for less upkeep. able in different colors and types and can even be created by a homeowner by chipping trimmed branches from trees in the yard. It helps lock water into landscaping beds, decreasing the need for frequent watering. * Water features: Think about installing a pond in the yard that can be bordered with stones and mulch. This will take up a good amount of space and can create a natural habitat for wildlife and even some low-maintenance pond fish. * Concrete or patio stones: Although they’re not all-natural materials, patios can take up areas normally consumed by the lawn and create expansive outdoor entertaining areas. It will require an initial investment of the patio material, but once installed, patios don’t require significant maintenance. Homeowners can offset the concrete jungle feel by placing plenty of potted plants and container foliage around the perimeter. * Decking: Another alternative to concrete and stones is a wood or composite material deck. Again, this structure will increase outdoor living space and won’t require the level of routine maintenance needed to keep a lush lawn. and 2011, this credit is fully refundable. 10. 2011 federal filing deadline is April 18—Due to the April 15 observation of Emancipation Day in the District of Columbia, the filing deadline for federal tax returns is April 18 this year. Some state filing deadlines remain April 15. For more information about tax season 2011, visit the H&R Block website at www.hrblock.com or call 800HRBLOCK.
