Bows and placed beneath the tree. Shops are closed, Even merchants hurry home On this enchanted night. A glass of wine perhaps a kiss Beneath the mistletoe. Evening fades as night begins And children dream of gifts. Late that night stillness comes Magic spills over the land As every creature of the earth Feels the promise of The Son. Humblest home and greatest hall Are wrapped in a mother’s love. It’s this moment I hold most dear When peace fills the hearts of all. Merry Christmas Everyone!

Help From a Caring Neighbor

SO. SARATOGA COUNTY – When Mary came home from having a hip replacement, she found that she could not manage to do laundry. She could not go grocery shopping either.

If you would like someone to give a little time to you by visiting, shopping, giving rides, handy-helping, or chores, Care Links can help you, too. Call 399-3262 and let us know what you need. (A)

For serious shoppers and hardcore bargain hunters, battling the crowds and enduring the endless lines on Black Friday are simply traditions that usher in the holiday shopping season. For the rest of us, the idea of rising at 3 a.m. on the morning after Thanksgiving and heading out into the night to compete for gifts and assorted holiday goods with thousands of zealous consumers is nothing short of a nightmare. But for the truly squeamish, whose goal is to avoid even the hint of a crowd, there are indeed ways to purchase every gift on your list without encountering hordes of holiday shoppers. The most obvious strategy for avoiding the masses is to shop online. According to surveys conducted by public opinion pollsters Rasmussen Reports and BIGresearch, in 2010 nearly 64 percent of American adults did at least a portion of their shopping on the Web. Increasingly, people of all ages are opting to shop

online not only to find better prices, but because purchasing via the Internet is convenient, fast and enables consumers to perform quick and accurate product and price comparisons. And with so many online retailers offering free shipping during the holiday season, many consumers see little reason to step inside a brick-and-mortar establishment. However, even diehard eshoppers recognize that there is something to be said for choosing a gift on site and in person; for taking the time to see and touch an object to determine its suitability. Whether youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re heading out in search of a dazzling diamond or a set of new dishtowels, here are some tips for avoiding shopping crowds: * Shop all year round. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s harder to sidestep the throngs of holiday shoppers during the peak season between October and late December. By picking up gifts throughout the year, you can take advan-

Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more, year-round holiday shopping means that your gift budget gets spread out over the course of an entire year rather than a few short months. * Shop when the crowds are elsewhere. The busiest holiday shopping periods are in the late afternoon or early evening and, of course, on weekends. If you can shop at lunchtime or take a few hours off during the workday, chances are good that stores will be far less crowded. Other good times to shop are during popular televised sporting events or television shows. * Shop with purpose. If you know what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re shopping for and have a good idea where to get it, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a greater likelihood that you can get in and out of the store quickly -- and without blowing your budget on unnecessary items that catch your eye.

Shipping gifts more than just timing * Ship through an online retailer. Billing address and the shipping address are two different categories when buying from an online retailer, and holiday shoppers should take advantage of a retailerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s willingness to package and ship gifts for you. Many online retailers will even gift-wrap items for you and include a personal note as well. * Protect the gift. For those

who wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be using an online retailer, be sure to protect the gift, especially if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fragile. Use bubble cushioning and packing peanuts when sending fragile items through the mail. If sending multiple items, wrap each item tightly in bubble cushioning but leave some space between the items for peanuts. * Carefully pack perishables. When sending perishable

items, always send them via next-day delivery and never ship them near the end of the week, such as a Friday or Saturday. Items shipped on Friday and Saturday should be able to withstand a few days of being in transit. But when sending cheeses, fruits or any other perishable items, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best to do so early in the week and choose next-day delivery.

Imported holiday gifts

People shopping for toys and presents this holiday season who are also trying to be conscientious of buying American or Canadian may want to pay more attention to the items they are getting. According to research by the U.S. Census Bureau, for the 2010 holiday season, $5.1 billion in toy imports originated in China. China was the leading country of origin for stuffed toys coming into North American ports, as well as for a number of other popular holiday gifts. These include roller skates ($37 million), sports footwear ($218 million) and basketballs ($32 million). China also is the leading supplier of ice skates, with Thailand and Canada ranking second and third for manufacture. Artificial Christmas trees and decoration are also big business for China. The U.S. imported $488.5 million worth of Christmas tree ornaments from the country last year and $28.2 million worth of artificial trees. There are some locally made toys, however. The U.S. has over 700 locations that make everything from games to dolls to children’s vehicles. California leads the nation with the most domestic toy/game production locations.

Daily deals make great holiday gifts Over the last few years, daily deal sites have grown enormously in both popularity and membership. The largest of these sites -- Groupon, Living Social, Woot and Eversave -are all expected to draw large crowds of virtual shoppers on the hunt for gift deals this holiday season. These dealof-the-day Web sites and the many others that have sprung up recently offer consumers opportunities to purchase deeply discounted gift certificates that can be redeemed at both local or national companies. And with so many consumers still on the lookout for savings this holiday season, daily deal sites are an attractive source for great gifts on a tight budget. Typical deals offer 50 percent off the retail price of the goods or services and become valid once the number of deals purchased reaches a predetermined threshold. Registration is free and the daily deal offers for everything from food, fitness and fashion items to salon services, sporting events and weekend getaways are delivered via e-mail and localized to each user’s market area. For those consumers who want the best shot at deals offered on multiple sites, but don’t want to spend hours reading multiple e-mail offers, PriceGrabber has launched deals.pricegrabber.com, a one-stop shopping site that allows users to look through hundreds of deals offered by more than 20 daily deal Web sites via a single e-mail each day. Other deal aggregators -- sites that gather information on deals offered by multiple companies--include Dealery, Dealnews and Yipit. Giving daily deals as gifts generally works two ways. The purchaser either presents the gift certificate itself or uses the deal to purchase the actual gift item. Either way, there are

There are only two things to keep in mind when purchasing daily deal vouchers as gifts: Note the expiration date. Most daily deal certificates have an expiration date, which is often one year from the date of purchase. Especially when purchasing activities, accommodations or services, make sure that the person receiving the gift will be able to use it with-

in the specified timeframe.

Read the offer carefully, including the fine print. Some offers come with conditions. For example, a yoga studio or hair salon might limit the use of the vouchers to new customers or specify that the deal can only be used for particular classes or stylists. In most cases, however, daily deals are straightforward and don’t require more than one read to decipher.

Gifts from bad to worst Great gifts are great for a multitude of reasons, but bad gifts tend to have a lot in common. The worst gifts are not only a poor fit with the recipient’s personality, lifestyle or interests, but also send a negative or critical message. Just plain bad gifts tend to fall into three categories: The useless, the thoughtless and the tasteless. And while the lists of awful items for men and women may be different, they nevertheless fall into one of these diagnostic categories. If you’re considering purchasing gifts in any of the following four categories for the man or men in your life, think again.

rative elements: Items in this category include everything from a new dish rack to artsy decor items. Such items might send a negative message similar to new clothes, and many men are territorial about their homes and resist outside (i.e., female) advice on decorating. So unless you know exactly what he wants or needs, go back to the drawing board. Sentimental items: What a woman might call “sweet,” a man might want to store in the trash can. If you’re tempted to get your husband or boyfriend that cute teddy bear that reminds you of him, or flannel

Clothing: While this sounds innocent enough, when the clothes don’t match a man’s style, it can be construed as a suggestion that you don’t like what he wears or want him to up his fashion game. If you don’t have a clue about what the men in your life actually like and will wear, make another choice. Household bric-a-brac or deco-

pajamas printed with those same teddy bears, forget it. And forget the book of syrupy love poetry, romantic movies or T-shirts with sappy sayings. He’ll be glad you did. Psychology or self-help materials in any form or format: This is perhaps the biggest no-no of them all and sends the biggest “You’re not okay” message. So if you’re tempted to buy your guy a book about improving communication skills, finding a better job or making better use of time, don’t. Enough said. When gifting women, me should also avoid certain gifts. Appliances: For most women, household appliances fall under the heading of “need” rather than “want,” unless it is a specialty item that you’re certain she has been yearning for. Lingerie: The principle here is similar to why clothes are a bad idea for guys, but can lead to far more disastrous outcomes. Many men don’t realize that a gift of lingerie is often accompanied by an unintended message. If it’s too small,

“It has been a pleasure serving the Clifton Park and Halfmoon communities — and beyond! — for over twenty-Àve years. Each year we are welcomed into your homes bringing homemade homebaked goodness and orchard-fresh apples,” says Diane Lindsey of Lindsey’s Country Store. The purchase of the orchard by Jim and Jeanne Lindsey in 1970 began a family tradition that is being carried on to the third generation. Lindsey’s Idyllwood Orchards, 267 Sugar Hill Road in Rexford, was the very Àrst “Pick-Your-Own” apple orchard in the area. They offer over 40 varieties of apples and farm-grown vegetables at the orchard and the country store. About 8,000 gallons of apple cider are produced annually at their cider mill, in small amounts and is UV-treated to maintain freshness. Lindsey’s Country Store began as a seasonal apple store that grew as then teen-daughter Diane began to formulate her mufÀn recipes. Customers requested more, the store grew and the Signature Custom MufÀn Gift Baskets were created. Now there are 48 Áavors of mufÀns baked fresh everyday. Additionally many baked goods and 27 Áavors of pies are offered. Lindsey’s Country Store is open year around and offers their mufÀn baskets, pastry platters, pies, baked goods, apple cider donuts, apple cider and a variety of gifts and greeting cards. They work with personal and corporate accounts, deliver locally and ship within the US.

EYES ON HEALTH by Lawrence Cusma, OD 9 Gleason Road Scotia, NY 12302

DRY EYES (continued) If you think you have dry eyes, with symptoms such as foreign body sensations, redness, fatigue, or uncomfortable contact lenses, talk to your eye doctor. Depending on the severity of your dry eye symptoms, you and your doctor will devise a plan of action together. Here are some strategies that can help: - TAKE BREAKS and BLINK while reading or working at a computer. - ADD WATER: Use a humidiÀer if the air is dry, and drink plenty of water to hydrate from the inside out. - AVOID EXPOSURE to eye irritants such as cigarette smoke and other forms of pollution. - Use over-the-counter ARTIFICIAL TEARS (liquid or gel), preferably preservative-free, as recommended by your doctor. - PRESCRIPTION THERAPIES: Talk to your eye doctor about available treatment options that may be right for you.

Defining black ice Drunk driving Traffic reports often make fact mention of black ice during the colder weather. It can certainly sound ominous, and it’s often very dangerous. But what exactly is black ice? Black ice is a thin coating of ice that forms on roadways and other surfaces. It often occurs from freezing drizzle, wind-blown snow or freezing condensation. Because black ice is so thin, the ice appears to be the same color of the surface material beneath the ice. Therefore, on asphalt roads, the ice can be nearly invisible and black in color --hence the name. Unlike snow or ice that is readily visible, black ice is very hard to see, which makes it very dangerous for motorists. Drivers should treat wet-looking roads with caution during the cold weather. What may appear to be water is often black ice. Traction is limited on ice, so spinouts and accidents may occur if the driver is not careful.

BROADWAY USED TIRES

Many people mistakenly assume that New Year’s Eve is the holiday responsible for the most drunk-driving accidents. Although champagne and other alcoholic drinks are often free-flowing on December 31, New Year’s Eve holds a distant second place to Thanksgiving for the most drunk driving-related fatalities. This is perhaps because Thanksgiving is a family holiday, and many people often feel pressure to drink more when family are around to have a good time. CASH FOR CARS and trucks.

Rotary Club Christmas Tree Sale

BALLSTON SPA – For more than 40 years the Ballston Spa Rotary Club’s main fundraiser has been selling quality Christmas trees. Tree sales will be held in the Curtis Lumber parking lot on Route 67 in Ballston Spa. Trees are sold daily from 10am-8pm. Dark green, long lasting, and fragrant, all trees are the very desirable Balsam Fir. The attractively shaped trees range in height from 6 ½ feet to 8 ½ feet and are priced at $40 or $45 each. There are also a limited number of taller trees, which are priced higher. Staffed with volunteers and supported by local businesses, proceeds from the tree sales are donated throughout the year to local non-profit organizations supporting those in need in our local community, and international projects promoting good will. This year the Ballston Spa Rotary Club will also be selling the “Rotarian Flavors of the World Cookbook”. With international recipes from around the world this cookbook will make a great gift that supports Rotary’s worldwide effort to eradicate polio. (A)
