Mums Not the Only Word: Fall Flowers & Foliage When it comes to updating your yard and garden with plants and flowers to reflect the palette and personality of the season, there are plenty of fall options that don’t limit you to chrysanthemums. While there’s certainly nothing wrong with this ubiquitous old standby and its myriad of hues, it’s worth it to browse through other selections that can add a little variety to your autumnal ambience. Here are a few South Louisiana fall-friendly plants and flowers to consider: Bromeliads Crotons Yellow Creeping Jenny Red Ruellia Cigar Plant Golden Rain Tree Candelabra plant Golden Bells or Esperanza ShiShi Gashira Camellia Belinda’s Dream Salvia leucantha Cassia splendida

Get Your Mind Into the Gutter Hurricane season can be brutal in Southeast Louisiana. Even if we dodge the major bullets, chances are, by the end of the season, we’ve withstood at least a few storms, with all the leaves and debris accumulation that goes along with them. And your gutters have paid the price. For proper gutter maintenance, you need to: Clean them out, of course Make sure your downspouts are working properly. Check for holes and cracks in the caulking, as well as corrosion, sagging, bending and missing fasteners. Verify that your gutters are firmly attached to your home. Cut or trim overhanging tree branches. As you might imagine, this requires a lot of time, effort, ladder-climbing, and sharp tools. If you have neither the time, inclination, nor coordination to handle all of this for yourself -- or if your gutters are beyond help -- check out these local services that offer cleaning, repair, and installation.

Much Ado About the Flu While we’re slowly easing out of hurricane season, flu season is sneaking in. There’s no way to inoculate yourself against unpredictable weather, but you can certainly do your best to protect against that dreaded annual viral infection! Do you have questions? We have answers, courtesy of the CDC…

WHEN SHOULD I GET VACCINATED? Flu vaccinations are usually available beginning in August, and experts suggest getting the shot by the end of October, when the earliest outbreaks can start occurring. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop, so plan accordingly.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF FLU VACCINATION? IT CAN… • Keep you from getting sick with flu. • Reduce the risk of flu-associated hospitalization, including among children and older adults. • Serves as an important preventive tool for people with chronic health conditions. • Protect women during and after pregnancy, and protect a baby by passing on mom’s antibodies. • May make your illness milder if you do get sick. • Protect people around you, including those who are more vulnerable to serious flu illness, like babies and young children, older people, and people with certain chronic health conditions.

Trick or Treat & Healthy Teeth It’s almost Halloween, and you know what that means… candy! It’s everywhere you look this time of year, and if you are a trick-or-treat enabler, it’ll be in your house soon, if it isn’t already. Don’t fret. While sweets aren’t exactly good for you, some are better than others. You just have to choose wisely! Where your teeth are concerned, not all candies are created equally. Chocolate lovers, rejoice -- it’s one of your best options for dental health. It rinses off your teeth more easily than most, and dark chocolate has less sugar than milk chocolate. What you want to be aware of are the sticky, sour, and hard candies. Sticky or hard candy are troublesome because they stay in your mouth and/or directly on your teeth longer, raising the risk of cavities. Sour candy is very acidic, which means it can weaken and damage the hard outer shell of your teeth. After your get your Halloween candy fix, you may want to follow up with a good cleaning! Here are some local dentists who can do just that:

CARES

Quality of Life for Aging Veterans According to a 2013 census, there are over 9.3 million military veterans age 65 or older living in the United States. We owe them a huge debt of gratitude for serving in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and the Persian Gulf. But, beyond gratitude, and in addition to medical benefits from the Veterans Administration, these American heroes also deserve a lesser known benefit, called Aid and Attendance, or A&A. This service covers the cost of caregivers in the home, or in an assisted living or nursing home environment., which can have a significant impact on families who struggle to pay for care.

with the daunting process of completing the A&A application, providing documentation, submitting completed documents to the VA, and continuing case management to monitor the application until complete. If you know someone who could benefit from these services, or if you’d like to contribute to this worthy organization, call (985) 778-2775 or visit vetattend.com.

Locally based VetAttend not only provides quality home care services to war-time veterans and their surviving spouses, they also assist

Fall Fashion Boutiques Can you feel it in the air? Autumn is here, so it’s time to box up the bikinis and bust out the boots. As you swap out your seasonal wardrobes, if you’re feeling less than thrilled with the selection, maybe it’s time to freshen it up with a few trendy pieces. According to Glamour Magazine, these are six of the hottest trends for fall 2017. Moody Florals. Designers have reimagined springy bouquets with a palette of deep blues, purples, and pinks. Après-Ski-Style Zip-Ups. This “athleisure” trend borrows from 80s-inspired sportswear, and translates into high, zip-up necklines on everything from parkas to tank tops and mini dresses. Box Silhouettes. A perfect foil for the season’s more feminine floral and pink trends. Sheer Layers. The sexy trend is showing up on a variety of pieces, from luxe midi dresses, sculptural mini dresses, and extra-long button-ups. Pale Pink. Not just for spring anymore. What a nice departure from typical fall hues. Gray Suiting. Think: deconstructed blazers, perfectly tailored trousers, and plenty of pinstripes. If you’re feeling inspired and ready to update that wardrobe with some sassy fall fashions, check out these fabulous Tangi boutiques:

CELEBRATING

Middendorf’s Oktoberfest: Party Like It’s 1810 If you read up on the origins of Oktoberfest, you’re likely to find two different stories. One credits the Munich celebration of the October 12, 1810 marriage of Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig to the Saxon-Hildburghausen Princess Therese. The other simply says… in the old days, October was when it was finally cool enough to brew lagers. Hooray! Let’s celebrate. While there are plenty of places to toast the beer part of this annual ritual, there are few places that will create the complete German experience, as Middendorf’s Restaurant will. In addition to serving authentic German meals for both lunch and dinner every Wednesday and Thursday from October 4 - November 9 (alongside the regular menu), their servers will be wearing traditional German attire. Menu highlights include tongue-twisting delicacies like schlachtplatte, sauerbraten, rotkraut, spätzle, and schwarzwälderkirschtorte (that’s Black Forest cake!). Visitors can also stroll through and take fun photos in Middendorf’s festive bier garden/German village, which includes custom German buildings and a maypole. And what’s a party without music? As a special treat for Oktoberfest, Heinz Pfeifer (the brother of Middendorf’s owner/chef Horst Pfeifer) will travel from Germany to entertain guests with traditional music on his accordion. Pick up a punch card, and if you dine there all six weeks, you get a free Oktoberfest gift. For menu details and descriptions, call (985) 386-6666 or visit the website at middendorfsrestaurant.com. Middendorf’s is located at 30160 Hwy 51 S. in Akers (Manchac). Just take Exit 15 (the Manchac Exit) on I-55.

FUN

Northshore Fall for Fun & Fun for All While it’s true, many autumn activities and attractions are generally geared towards kids, why should they have all the fun? We’re lucky enough to have several local farms that go all out with fall festivities for all ages, from hayrides to corn mazes to farm animal races and shows. MRS. HEATHER’S PUMPKIN PATCH (Hammond) Now - November 8 Monday - Friday, 9am - 5pm; Saturday - Sunday, 10am - 5pm While many of the activities are geared for kids, there’s plenty of appeal for adults, too. In addition to free admission for grown-ups, there’s a hay maze, nature trail, and lots more! For details, call (225) 567-3493 or visit www.thfarms.com. STEELE’S FALL FESTIVAL (Angie) October 7-29 Saturdays 10am-6pm and Sundays from 1-6pm Highlights include a tractor-drawn hayride, rock wall, duck and pig races, human foosball, hamster race track, Tarzan ropes, a corn maze, and more. Food and drinks will be for sale at the concession stand, and there are picnic tables all over the farm, as well as under the country pavilion, located behind their gift shop. For details, visit www.steeleschristmastreefarm.com or call (985) 848-5133. CAJUN COUNTRY CORN MAZE (Pine Grove) October 7 - November 27 They offer different packages at different prices points, which allow varying access to their many attractions, which include the corn maze, pig races, animal petting area, chicken show, jumping pillow, and more. Also, every Saturday night in October, they will have their haunted trail, haunted pallet maze, and live zombie shoot. Non-haunted hours are Friday 5 - 9pm; Saturday 9am - 9pm; Sunday 11am - 6pm. Haunted hours are Saturday 7pm-11pm. To find out more and get all the pricing/package info, call 1-877-843-9421, 225-357-4924, or 225-939-8305, or visit www.cajuncountrycorn.com.

PREPARED

A Well-Oiled Machine: Conventional vs. Synthetic When it comes to food and personal care products, it’s pretty much always best to go with the less processed options that are closest to their natural form. But motor oil is a different story. Conventional oil is derived directly from crude oil, while the synthetic variety is the result of more advanced refining processes. Which is better? According to Consumer Reports, many automakers require vehicle owners to use synthetic motor oil because it’s designed to be more effective at resisting breakdowns, withstanding high temperatures, and flowing in cold temperatures -- all of which results in fewer oil changes and can extend the life of your engine. The downside, however, is that synthetic motor oil can cost two to four times as much as regular oil. It’s helpful, but is it necessary? The bottom line: unless your owner’s manual specifies synthetic, it comes down to personal preference. Still unsure? Here are some local oil change services that could be of assistance:
