Common SENSE Tips • Swap heat-producing halogen lamps (that can be a fire hazard) and regular incandescent bulbs for compact Fluorescent bulbs that use 60-75 percent less energy per bulb and last ten times longer than incandescent bulbs. • The R-value assigned to insulation measures its thermal resistance. Higher R-value equals better the insulation.

Week’s BEST Technically Challenged I work at a large electronics retail chain and one day we had all of the big VP’s in because our store is being remodeled. I work with cameras and one came over asking me questions because the one corporate gave him was “broken”; it was brand new so I asked what was wrong. He said it wouldn’t turn on, and I asked if he checked the batteries and he laughed with all the other big shots and told me, “Obviously”. I then looked at it and hit the power button, it turned on immediately. Turns out he had been pressing the shutter button the entire time.

Chain saw/small equipment service/ repair

Advanced Equipment, 155 Brickyard Rd., Farmington, CT, 860 269-3103. In the past few years it seems that most of the shops that do this stuff on a full-time basis have disappeared, leaving an army of weekend warriors without ammunition - or totally defenseless, unable to advance, lawn overgrown, trees down, leaves all over the place. One soldier last week found a way out – idled chain saw cleaned out, carb adjusted, new filter, chain sharpened, works great, ($41). Garden tractor scheduled for March service ($52 for pick-up and return). Pre-spring stress syndrome relieved. Let the battle begin.

Okay, sure…many of us have had a tough year, but with Thanksgiving just days away, we all might do well to remember that sometimes, it’s what we don’t have that should make us truly thankful. For instance, I don’t have a big fancy house or a big fancy car, but that just means that I don’t have big fancy property taxes. I don’t have credit cards — or the debt that goes with them. And I don’t have enough money to take vacations, which leaves me plenty of time to savor my own little world. I don’t have big dreams — just little ones that come true every day. I don’t have a favorite song — just thousands I get to hear all the time. And I don’t have tons of friends — just a handful or two of really, really good ones I can always count on. Above all, I don’t have an illness or disability capable of diminishing life’s everyday joys, and if those were the only two things I did not have, I would still be lucky enough. Nope. I don’t have lots of things, and for that I am truly blessed. o n l i n e at t h e va l l e y c r i e r . c o m

Weekly Overview (Week starting on November 22) Buckle down and deal on Monday; the stars reward steady stuff like finishing a project, calling your family and exercising. And never fear — things get more interesting by Tuesday and Wednesday, even alarmingly so. Life looks busy now, and the potential for change is tremendous. If you want to move from talk into action, now’s the time! At the end of the workweek, it’s the thought that counts. Turning things over in your mind, or with a certain party, is extremely productive now. As for the weekend, anything new pleases you, and you just might take a risk — ­ maybe in the area of romance!

35% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc Who said great Bordeaux had to be expensive? This 2005 Bordeaux Superier is a steal at this price. A bright and solid core of cherry and blueberry fruit layered nicely throughout the glass with a good ending of nutmeg, mocha and vanilla. Pair it with pork tenderloins, duck, or filet mignon.

This is a fresh, soft style of Chardonnay with bright sweet citrus fruit character and subtle spice and oak nuances. Grapes are blended from vineyards all over Washington’s Columbia Valley to make this a complex wine, perfect for pairing with chicken or light creamy pasta dishes.
