Pumpkins are a type of gourd that grows on just about every continent (Antarctica not included). The majority of pumpkins are bought and sold around Halloween, commonly to convert to jack-o-lanterns. However, pumpkins can be used as a delicious food source. Here is some other interesting information about pumpkins. Pumpkins are believed to have originated in North America. Seeds from pumpkins dating back to 7000 B.C. have been found in Mexico. The name "pumpkin" evolved originally from the Greek word "pepon," for large melon. The French called them "pompon," and the English eventually changed the word to "pumpion." There are dozens of varieties of pumpkins and they come in many colors, including white, besides the familiar orange. Most pumpkins can be harvested for carving. However, certain varieties are better for cooking. These include the Buckskin, Chelsey, Dickinson Field, and Kentucky Field. It is possible for the home gardener to grow pumpkins. It may take a few tries, but the results can be worth it if pumpkins eventually form. Keep in

the

mind that although pumpkin plants will produce several flowers throughout the life of the plant, a person can expect only one to two actual pumpkins per vine. Pumpkin plants naturally produce separate male and female flowers on the same plant for pollination. Pumpkin plants should be watered, but only the roots, in the early morning or during the day for good health. Wet leaves can lead to mildew. Laterday watering may result in powdery mildew, a blight that can form and spread quickly. Bugs are another problem that may destroy a pumpkin plant. The cucumber beetle is a carrier of plant disease. Of course, if growing pumpkins seems too much work, a trip to a local pumpkin patch is a good excursion for families. Pumpkins ripen at the end of summer into early fall. However, it could be best to wait until later in the season to pick a pumpkin because a picked or carved pumpkin won't last forever.

2010 FALL HOME IMPROVEMENT

NORTHEAST MISSISSIPPI DAILY JOURNAL

Cut heating costs (ARA) - Saving money never goes out of style, especially when it comes to home utility bills. With a scorching summer drawing to a close and last winter's deep freeze looming in their minds, many Americans are already looking for ways to curtail energy costs this winter. In fact, more than 20 percent of Americans are concerned about heating and energy costs and half believe it's already difficult to afford their utility bills, according to a survey by the Pew Research Center. They may have reason to worry; heating oil costs are expected to rise nearly 30 percent this year, the Energy Information Administration of the U.S. Department of Energy predicts. Heat transfer - warm air from inside your home escaping to the outdoors - is the main culprit that drives up winter energy bills. Fortunately, a few simple home improvements - and even some decor changes - can help reduce your home's heating costs this winter. First, identify the biggest energy leeches in your home. Are the doors drafty? Do the windows rattle in a slight breeze? Is the insulation in your home's attic less than adequate? Next, consider these minor home improvement projects to help reduce heat transfer and trim energy bills: • Windows and doors are prime points for heat to escape from your home. Before the weather turns cold, seal around doors, windows, electrical outlets and plumbing fixtures. Caulk, spray foam, weatherstripping and a free weekend are all you need to accomplish this job, which can help you realize significant energy savings and create a more comfortable environment inside your home this winter. • Maximize your furnace's energy efficiency by having the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system, including the ductwork, professionally cleaned. Be sure to change air filters regularly.

• Install programmable thermostats if you don't already have them. If your home is already equipped with programmable thermostats, be sure to program the temperature to be lower during periods when you'll be out of the house or need less heat. For example, reduce the temperature during the day when everyone is out of the house at work or school, or overnight when everyone is tucked in bed under blankets and comforters. • Place door sweeps on exterior doors and on basement doors if you have an unfinished basement. These narrow strips of vinyl that attach to the base of a door can help reduce heat escape. Some home decor changes can also help reduce energy bills. Hardwood floors will feel warmer on bare feet when covered by accent rugs in the winter. And cozy throws draped over sofas and chairs make a design statement while helping your home's occupants stay snug and warm. Rearranging your furniture can also help insulate your home. Place large items that no one sits on - such as bookcases or entertainment centers -- against outside walls. Their extra bulk provides additional insulation against drafts and the cooler temperature of outside walls. Reserve inside walls for seating; they are slightly warmer and less likely to be drafty than outside walls. With a few simple improvements and decor changes, you can lower your home's energy costs this winter without sacrificing warmth or style. Courtesy of ARAcontent

An expert’s guide to

Hardwood flooring

SOLID HARDWOOD FLOORING

ture.

Solid hardwood flooring is just that -- a solid plank of hardwood milled into a piece of flooring, usually with a tongue and groove on the edges and ends, so that the pieces fit together on all sides. While it comes in a variety of thicknesses, 3/4-inch is the most common produced in the U.S. and is usually nailed to a wooden subfloor. Thinner profiles, such as 5/16 inch, can be glued directly on to a surface such as concrete. Widths typically range from 2 1/4inch strip to 8-inch and wider plank. Favorite U.S. species are red and white oak, hard maple, ash, hickory and pecan, walnut and cherry. All solid hardwood flooring can be sanded and refinished, however special care must be taken with the thinner profiles. And in all cases of hardwood flooring installation, a clean, moisture-free surface is essential to eliminate future problems with movement or mois-

TWO TYPES OF SOLID HARDWOOD FLOORING

Unfinished solid hardwood flooring comes directly from the mill and is sanded and finished onsite. Most often used in new home construction, the rough sanding occurs during the early stages of the building process with the final coating being done just prior to move-in. Today's numerous dust containment sanding systems however, allow homeowners to enjoy the beauty of site finished, custom hardwood flooring practically anytime. Prefinished solid hardwood floors have already gone through a multiple stage finishing process before leaving the factory. They are ready to be enjoyed. This type of flooring usually comes with a substantial factory warranty, and species choices and color ranges are virtually endless.

ENGINEERED OR MULTI-LAYER HARDWOOD FLOORING

Engineered hardwood flooring is typically made from seven to 10 layers of thin veneers or sheets, glued together to form a type of plywood, then finished with a solid hardwood wear layer. It can be installed directly over concrete and most other types of subfloors. The advantage of engineered hardwood flooring is that it will not react to moisture changes and is more stable than solid hardwood flooring. Because of this stability, engineered is recommended over solid in wide plank applications. Depending on the thickness of the wear layer, an engineered floor will perform in much the same way same as a solid floor.

HAND-SCRAPED HARDWOOD FLOORING

With this type of flooring -- available in solid or engineered, unfinished or prefinished --the manufacturer hand scrapes each piece of flooring to mimic the look of an old, worn floor. This look is most popular in wide planks for that "old world" charm. But a word of caution -- to refinish these floors, all the detail will be removed in sanding.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

Care and maintenance of hardwood flooring is easy; often just a matter of common sense. Follow these simple guidelines and your floors will last a lifetime, providing the warmth and feel only real hardwood can offer. • Water is a hardwood floor's worst enemy. Clean up spills immediately. Do not use a damp mop or oilbased soap. Always check with the flooring manufacturer for recommended cleaning products. • Sweep hardwood floors regularly. Dirt and dust can grind into the finish. Consider doormats at every entrance - rugs in high traffic areas. • Sunlight can be harmful and can drastically change the color of the wood. Consider sheer drapes, curtains or blinds to limit direct sunlight. • Shoes can also cause damage. High heels can dent. Small stones can scratch. Consider leaving shoes and the grit of the outside world at the door.

Fall ceramic tile trends go

Bold and Beautiful

COLOR

Strong saturated tones such as midnight blue, royal purple and deep chartreuse will join autumn's traditional power hues of rich reds and burnt sienna. Reds are especially dominant, appearing in every shade from fiery orange-reds to deep merlot. These powerful colors are paired with linear and neutral whites, creams and soft grays to provide a high-contrast punch. You'll also see high-contrast color schemes such as black and white. This fall's tile collections also employ texture and geometry to underscore the contrast of light and shadow. Softness and whimsy also have their place with gentle palettes of sky blue, blushing orange, lilac and rose imparting optimism and childlike peace of mind. Highly stylized interpretations of classic motifs and floral patterns add sophistication to traditional themes. The message of these lighter looks seems to be "Don't take life too seriously. Have a little fun with design."

PATTERN

Fall pattern trends include micro and macro patterns within a single tile, larger-than-life designs that incorporate multiple tiles, and optical illusions. Drawing on consumers' continuing interest in the environment, tile makers are presenting entire collections

inspired by nature. You can find tiles that mimic the texture of sand dunes, waves, tree bark and even rain. Just as 3D has taken the movie scene by storm, tile makers are using the concept in fall patterns. Mind-bending effects are updating classic and mod styles. Designers are using dot-matrix screens, sometimes with metallic glazes, to twist the eye.

TEXTURE

Texture lends nuances of shade and tone through the play of light and shadow. Ceramic tiles have always been a good medium for textures. Digital technology has made it easy for tile makers to apply texture to a ceramic surface. New possibilities have emerged, such as tiles that mimic the look of antique distressed wood and bush-hammered or chiseled stone.

SIZE

It's difficult to pin down a trend in size these days, since technology has made it possible for manufacturers to produce tiles in a wide range of dimensions. Tiles can be as minute as 5/8 by 5/8 inches, or as grand as 4 feet by 4 feet. Some can even be made in 8-foot lengths. Slim tile continues to be an evolving technology gaining wider appreciation from homeowners and designers. Slim tiles use fewer resources in every phase of the manufacturing process, enhancing their appeal for eco-conscious consumers. This tile format also works well for a range of new applications, from cabinetry veneer and furniture tops to acoustical panels in ceiling applications. As manufacturers and designers continue to push innovation in technology and style, ceramic tile will continue to appeal to homeowners and home builders for its versatility, durability, beauty and eco-friendly qualities.

Create an Outdoor Living Space That Will Get Good Use Many homeowners think an outdoor living space is one that can only be used during the warm-weather months. However, if done right, individuals can enjoy outdoor rooms for much of the year. Creating a comfortable, intimate and private outdoor space offers a spot to which a person can retire after a long day -especially a person who enjoys the delights of Mother Nature. Outdoor rooms can be customized depending on the space one has, meaning homeowners or renters with any size yard or patio area can enjoy an outdoor room. Starting the project first requires determining where the outdoor space will be situated. Most people prefer to keep it close to the house for easy access. It's also important to consider how many seasons will be enjoyed outdoors. This will determine the accessories needed. For example, those who want to stretch outdoor living into the late autumn may want to invest in a chiminea or outdoor fireplace to provide a focal point and warm place to converge when the weather is brisk. Those who only desire a summer area may want an arbor or pergola to keep the area cooler when the sun is scorching. Keep in mind that this area of the outdoors should be private; otherwise it probably won't be used much. Plants, trellis, garden structures, and other elements can help to keep the area blocked off from prying eyes.

Consider plants that will feed wildlife and attract butterflies and birds. Greenery Tues.-Sat. tends to create a relaxing space. 662-534-8800 8:00am - 5:30pm

Don't forget a few evergreen shrubs or trees if the space will be enjoyed past the summer. Think about comfortable furniture to add to the space. Stores sell so many different varieties of outdoor furniture, from traditional patio sets to chaises and sofas that rival ones that would normally be found indoors. Accessorize as one would inside, adding side tables, throw pillows (in weather-resistant fabrics) and ottomans. The goal is comfort and convenience. Don't forget lighting. While there's bound to be plenty of sunlight during the day, individuals who want to sit outdoors at night should think about wired or solar lighting. Candles or a fire in a fire pit also can provide ample illumination. Homeowners going above and beyond can shield the outdoor room from the elements even further by building a screened-in outdoor space. This will help keep bugs at bay and provide shelter if it rains. Use curtains or shutters to give the area a cozy appeal.

How to make your family room into

Personal Theater

TELEVISION The most important decision you make will be the equipment you select to play your movies. Yet, even with advances in technology like the Blu-ray high-definition format and enhancements in picture quality, only a few of today's most advanced flat screens can replicate what you would see at the theater. To assist consumers in selecting an HDTV for their home theater, THX has developed a Display Certification, which requires rigorous testing to prove that the television is able to recreate the vivid contrast, bright colors, and detail present when a movie leaves the director's studio. The certification ensures that what viewers are seeing at home replicates the movie experience. "Now you can see every jaw-dropping explosion and special effect just as it is presented in the theater, except you'll be watching from the

SEATING Why settle for a rickety theater seat when you can tailor the seating in your cinema to your comfort? Whether you favor a cushy recliner or couch to cuddle on, the beauty of having a home theater is being able to add that sense of comfort that you might not get at your local cinema. Where do you place your TV in relation to your seating for optimal viewing? For the best seat in the house, Dean recommends the following distances based on the size of your television: * 35-inch TV = 3.5-5 feet * 40-inch TV = 4-6 feet

* 50-inch TV = 5-7.5 feet * 60-inch TV = 6-9 feet LIGHTING It's also important to make the lighting in your home work with the TV. Some televisions have settings that allow you to adjust the color to match the lighting in your living room with the touch of a button. When evaluating the lighting in your home just remember that darker is most often better, so add in dimmer switches where you can. SOUND Some TVs have excellent sound quality built right in, however you may wish to go with a surround sound system to catch every whisper and feel every explosion. Dean suggests, "Place the main speakers at the front of the room and make sure the tweeters are near ear level to where you will be sitting. Hard surfaces will cause sound to echo, so you may want to consider covering uncarpeted floors with a rug and place curtains over any windows." ATMOSPHERE Have some fun decorating the room with posters from your favorite movies or get a popcorn maker. Part of the fun of having a home theater is you can add your own flair to the movie experience. But most importantly, make your space comfortable. Courtesy of ARAcontent

comfort of your couch," says Rick Dean, senior vice president of THX. The only LED LCDs in the U.S. to receive THX Display Certification are the new Infinia HDTVs from LG. These sets are equipped with Full LED Slim technology that employs patented backlighting for an ultra-slim depth without sacrificing picture quality. By simply selecting one of the THX modes on an LG LX9500 or LE8500, you can turn your living room into a screening room with just the touch of a button. No professional installation is needed. Movie buffs will appreciate the accurate recreation of the filmmaker's vision, Dean explains. In fact, at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival - one of the leading film festivals in the U.S. - German filmmaker Björn Richie Lob's documentary "Keep Surfing" was screened on LG Infinia LED HDTVs. It was the first time a television had ever been used for a screening at the festival.

(ARA) - Until now, there's been nothing quite like the experience of catching your favorite flick in the theater, but today's technology makes it possible to bring the magic of the theater experience to your home. Each year, home theater equipment becomes more sophisticated and affordable, allowing more homeowners to turn their family rooms into screening rooms. With a little attention to lighting, seating, sound and the right TV screen, you too can create a cinematic experience in your home. According to THX LTD., the organization that created the design and certification programs for cinemas, audio systems and HDTVs, you can create the feel of the theater by simply making the right choices for your primary TV viewing area in your house.

A New Roof

(ARA) - A 2010 survey by American Express indicates that homeowners will spend more than $6,000 on average on home improvements this year. For one lucky homeowner this money may come back not only in the form of enhancements to their home, but also thousands of dollars right back in their pocket. For others, installing a new roof could mean getting a little money back in their bank account. It's as simple as installing a roof and sharing the picture for all to admire. According to a recent report by the Pew Research Center, 80 percent of Americans say owning a house is the best long-term investment a person can make. The study adds that about 48 percent of all homeowners state that the value of their home has declined during the recession. A smart way to dramatically enhance the look and value of a home is with a roof makeover. Traditional plain black and brown roofs are losing popularity to more colorful shingles, which reflect the personality and style of the homeowner and can increase the home's curb appeal. Homeowners are confidently choosing beautiful color palates such as Summer Harvest, Sand Dune or Merlot shingles for the top of their abode. Owens Corning, a leading manufacturer of insulation and roofing products, offers the Duration Series Designer Colors Collection of shingles with seven vibrant color combinations that come with SureNail Technology for maximum performance and wind resistance of up to 130-mph winds. The company even offers a free online color personality quiz to help homeowners select the shade best suited for them. Just visit www.roofing.owenscorning.com to learn your color personality. "Homeowners are looking for ways that they can significantly increase the value of their home and its physical appeal," says Sue Burkett, market-

ing manager for Owens Corning Roofing and Asphalt. "A new roof can be a major makeover for some homes, adding valuable aesthetic appeal for the homeowners and neighbors to enjoy." Owens Corning recently announced its first-ever national competition to find the home with the best roof makeover using the company's Duration Designer Colors Collection shingles. The just-launched "That's My Roof!" contest welcomes homeowners to show off their new roof and have a chance to win prizes. "The contest is a fun way for us to interact with homeowners and provide a venue for them to show off their redesigned exterior of their home," adds Burkett. "In addition, other homeowners get to vote and comment on each make-over submission. Refunding a new roof to the best overall submission is our way of showing customers that we appreciate their business and we're dedicated to the same thing that they are making their home look great.'" To enter, homeowners can visit www.thatsmyroof.com and submit before and after photos of their Duration Designer Colors Collection roof through Oct. 15. The contest will run through Oct. 31, 2010 and feature monthly winners. One grand prize winner will receive a refund for the cost of the roof up to $10,000. For homeowners, updating their roof with designer shingles offers more than wind and weather protection and overall value to the home. The increase in color choices helps enable homeowners to add a splash of personality to exterior and fall more in love with a home that is reflective of his or her style.

Ellen Short says:

Make The Most of That First Impression. A well-manicured lawn and shrubs, and a clutter free porch welcome prospects. So does a freshly painted or scrubbed front door. Invest in a few hours for future dividends and clean up and unclutter. If your woodwork is scuffed or the paint is fading, consider some minor redecoration. Prospects would rather see how your home looks than hear how great it could look with a little work.
