• It was ancient Roman dramatist, philosopher and statesman Seneca the Younger who made the following sage observation: “While we are postponing, life speeds by.” • You might be surprised at some of the seemingly innocuous things that arouse passions in a group of people. Take the venerable 1960s television show “Mr. Ed,” for example. Evidently, an evangelist named Jim Brown took issue with the show’s theme song, claiming that when played backward, the tune contains the message “the source is Satan” and “someone sang this song for Satan.” His preaching on the subject was so persuasive that members of a church in Ironton, Ohio, made a bonfire of recordings of the song.

• If you’re planning to visit the Hawaiian island of Kauai, you might want to trek up to Mount Waialeale. If you do, though, be sure to take an umbrella, as that mountain holds the distinction of receiving more rainfall than any other place on Earth, with an average of about 40 feet -- yes, feet -- of rain annually. • A recent national survey of adult children with living parents found that a whopping 70 percent of respondents are against the idea of a parent moving in with them. If it became necessary for one parent to move in, though, two-thirds would choose Mom over Dad. • It was noted wit Ambrose Bierce who, in his “Devil’s Dictionary,” defined faith as “Belief without evidence in what is told by one who speaks without knowledge, of things without parallel.” • Those who study such things say that an ordinary human being can live four weeks without food, four days without water and four minutes without air. © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Don’t Let Your Tires Tire By Craig W. Armstrong

We know what they are and we know what they do, but do we know how to take care of them? Most of us don’t think about our tires until they are flat, but not only will proper tire maintenance save you money, it could save your life. Check your tire pressure regularly-monthly and before long trips. You can purchase a traditional pencil gauge or an easy-to-read digital gauge. (Public pressure gauges are subject to abuse and may not be reliable.) Check all four tires when they’re “cold” (before startup) or after the car has set for at least three hours. Be sure to occasionally check your spare tire also. You will find the recommended psi (pounds per square inch) in the vehicle owner’s manual or on the driver’s side doorjamb; some vehicles may also have the information inside the fuel hatch filler flap or the glove compartment door. DO NOT rely on the pressure indicated on the tire; that is the maximum psi and does not take into account driving conditions and situations (speed, load, etc.). Your tire gauge will tell you how much pressure is in the tire. If it’s under the recommendation, add some air...BUT DON’T OVERINFLATE.

Because air expands when it’s hot and contracts when it’s cold, it’s best to inflate your tires in the morning before the day’s heat. Underinflated tires have greater friction with the road, causing your car to work harder and be less fuel-efficient; underinflation also causes unnecessary wear on tires. Next check the wear on your tires. If the wear is excessive, you will see a smoothness that has replaced tread. A way to check tread wear is to enlist the help of our 16th president. Place a penny into the tire’s groove with Lincoln’s head upside down and facing toward you. If you can see the top of “honest Abe’s” head, it’s time for a new tire. Any tread depth less than 1/16 inch is not only dangerous but is illegal in many states Your driving style has an effect on the health and longevity of your tires. Do you drive fast? Driving at high speeds generates heat and will reduce the life of the tread. It’s also important to consider what you’re driving over. Avoid potholes, curbs, road kill and other obstructions. Another way to keep your tires in good working order is to rotate them every 5,000 to 6,000 miles. Rotating your tires allows them to wear more evenly. If the tires are original to your vehicle, your owner’s manual will tell you when to rotate. If they are replacements, the shop that installed them will recommend a schedule. Being aware of the age of your tires is essential for safety. Because aged tires can deteriorate from the inside, it is recommended that tires over six years old not be used. Federal regulations require that a DOT Tire Identification Number be branded

on the tire’s sidewall. At the end of the ID number is the week and year of the tire’s production: 2309 or 239 means the 23rd week of 2009. Be aware of the age of your tires and replace accordingly. These simple tips require little time when compared to the consequences of ignoring them. Proper tire maintenance is just one more step toward making sure your vehicle runs properly and safely.

Summer Energy Savings

Q: Can CFL light bulbs really save money? I'm not convinced. But my electric bill is high enough that I need all the help I can get. -- Carey T., Boone, N.C. A: Depending on the wattage they offset (of old-fashioned light bulbs), compact fluorescent light bulbs can save you some money. Of course, that savings builds up over time -- months and years. They're best used as part of an overall energy savings plan for your home. You don't have to outfit your house with a complete solar panel array, wind turbines or other top-line (and top-dollar) gadgets By Samantha Mazzotta to start cutting your energy bills. Savings can start as easily as turning off unnecessary lights and unplugging electrical or electronic items that don't see much use: for example, a clock radio in the guest room. Set your summertime thermostat no lower than 68 degrees F. If you have a programmable thermostat, have it shift to a slightly higher temperature, say, 74 F, when no one is at home. And here's a thermostat fact that not everyone knows: It's better to simply set the temperature higher, rather than turn off the air conditioner, during the hottest months. When you get home and want to lower the temperature to a more comfortable level, the

7

air conditioner has much less work to do and will cool the house much more quickly. Another enemy of energy efficiency is dust. Keep the air-conditioning vent covers free of dust, and vacuum the registers monthly. Likewise, change the air conditioner's filter screen once a month during the cooling season. And, because dust can gunk up a refrigerator's cooling coils and reduce its efficiency -- as well as its lifespan -- clean the coils and vacuum under and behind the fridge every couple of months throughout the year. Weatherstripping around window and door frames, usually a fall-season chore, can reduce the amount of cool air escaping the house. If you really want to tackle the problem, get a home-energy audit -- offered at low or no cost by many utilities -- to locate the areas of greatest air leakage. HOME TIP: My husband likes to watch TV until he falls asleep, but then the TV is on all night, running up the electric bill. I solved the problem by programming the television to turn off at a scheduled time -- a feature found on the menu screen. Send your questions or home tips to ask@thisisahammer.com.

Old Tools

Q: I have a garage of old tools that belonged to my granddad. Some are even to repair Model T automobiles. I have been told that vintage tools are collectible. -- Steve, West Pueblo, Colo. A: One of the better references is the "Antique Trader Tools Price Guide" by Clarence Blanchard and published by Krause. Some of the values listed are a handsaw manufactured by Henry Disston & Sons, $1,210; a plow plane from 1884, $14,300; a plumb and level with wooden arch and lead plumb bob, $440; early hatchet, $50; miniature brace, Dutch origin, $120; and a box of letter stamps, set of 27, A to Z plus &, $33. As you can clearly see, tool chests have become treasure chests, especially if they are filled with older, desirable tools. A good source to buy and sell older tools is Brown Auction Services, 27 Fickett Road, Pownal ME 04069. ••• Q: I have a partial set of Sakura china in the Laredo pattern.
