Photo by Elizabeth A. Tomlin Presidential fun facts • Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, George Washington, John Kennedy and Dwight Eisenhower are portrayed on U.S. coins. • Presidents portrayed on U.S. paper currency are: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Jackson, Ulysses Grant, William McKinley, Grover Cleveland, James Madison and Woodrow Wilson. • Vice presidents were originally the presidential candidates receiving the second-largest number of electoral votes. The Twelfth Amendment, passed in 1804, changed the system so that the electoral college voted separately for president and vice president. The presidential candidate, however, gradually gained power over the nominating convention to choose his own running mate. • The oldest president inaugurated was Ronald Reagan (age 69); the youngest was John F. Kennedy (age 43). Theodore Roosevelt, however, was the youngest man to become president— —he was 42 when he succeeded McKinley, who had been assassinated. • The tallest president was Abraham Lincoln at 6'4"; at 5'4", James Madison was the shortest.

If I were to characterize George Washington’s feelings toward his country, I should be less inclined than most people to stress what is called Washington’s love of his country. What impresses me as far more important is what I should call Washington’s respect for his country. -Randolph G. Adams

Original Valley PENNYSAVER • February 18, 2012

Hello Again, My mind seems to keep wandering back to the 1950’s—my high school and college days. So! “What’s up in your world?” Did you wake up ugly this morning or did you let him sleep? Most of my high school days in Cooperstown and college days in Oswego tend to keep me supplied with good memories. However, I do remember one situation in college, which brought out the wrong side of my Irish. I had to take an art course in Modern and Abstract Art. I will quickly admit my art skills are not in demand. Sometimes with the aid of a ruler or straightedge, I can draw a straight line. Before I paint a picture with words, which is too negative, let’s chat about the art class. During the first day of class, the professor or art instructor made the following point very clear. He said, and to paraphrase, “Students, in studying modern or abstract art it is very important that we realize, no judgment can be made concerning the quality of a piece of modern-abstract art for the beauty of the piece is always in the eye of the beholder.” For the first piece I turned in, he gave me a bold F mark or grade. So much for his first lecture. During the semester, I turned in other—works of art—receiving the same F mark. I finally confronted the professor questioning the F marks and reminded him of his first lecture concerning “beauty in the beholder’s eye.” With that, he invited me to leave his class. How did I, a college freshman, dare to question his judgment? I refused to vacate his class and was able to receive an appointment with the college dean. The dean eventually agreed with me. He called for a meeting with the professor and me. The short long of it is, I received and accepted a B+ for the final marking period. I often wonder what power of persuasion the dean used to persuade the professor to change his mind. Possibly he felt that I was willing to pursue this problem to the bitter end and felt a change of mind would serve better. Sometimes we—that is—all of us, can see the light and change our minds. The following tale might be an example. A building contractor wanted to give a politician a sports car to convince him to send a high-budgeted


Original Valley PENNYSAVER • February 18, 2012

deal his way. The politician objected and said, “Sir, common decency and my sense of honor would never permit me to accept a gift like that.” “I understand,” the contractor said. “Suppose we do this, I’ll sell you the sports car for $10.” The politician thought for a moment or two. “In that case,” he said, “I’ll take two.” When a horse attempts to jump over the fence rail during a field trial or show, his faith has to be absolute. He instinctively believes he will drop again to the earth on the other side. If he didn’t—he would never jump—losing because he did not believe. A born loser. That is the kind of thinking we possibility-thinkers must develop and have concerning the Palatine Bridge Corridor. The winners in life think, “I can, I will.” If we doubt or vocalize doubt, the Palatine Corridor cannot and will not happen. We will have already lost. Let’s keep the following thought foremost in our minds when the factory outlet stores along with stand-alone specialty shops, recreational vehicle campgrounds, country & western theater, bed and breakfasts and motels, golf courses, etc., become a reality. Hundreds, if not thousands, of our family members, friends and even new comers will enjoy permanent employment. Even farm roadside markets and now-existing businesses will enjoy a new way of life. There was a local valley grocery that owned a monkey that would often sit on a pickle barrel and play the harmonica. A patron saw that the monkey’s tail was hanging in the barrel and told Carm. Carm replied, “Don’t bother me, I’m busy. Go tell the monkey.” Whereupon the patron approached the monkey and said, “Do you know your tail is hanging in the pickle barrel?” “I don’t know,” replied the monkey. “Hum a couple of bars and I’ll see if I can pick up the melody.” It will be spring before we know it. Spring always indicates a new and fresh beginning, and yet everyday is a fresh beginning if we start if off by being grateful to the one who creates everything. Be grateful. Say thanks to our Heavenly Father. Treat today as a spring day. Say hi to your neighbor for me. Fred and Sylvia Lee and the Lee Family

For atmosphere and cuisine “there’s no place like DOME!”

by Elizabeth A. Tomlin Service with a smile, service with a flare, when you come to the DOME49, that’s what you’ll find there! Chef and owner Richard Brown, known for his style and flare- and as being a “hard worker,” has opened the doors to the newest establishment around, offering classic Italian cuisine, and “All American Sunday brunches.” The establishment, the DOME49, located at 49 Hancock St. (Route 5-S), Fort Plain, has already been labeled as a success after a few short days of being open for business, and the reviews are impeccable! “We went there to eat last night,” said Fort Plain Area Merchants Association President, Linda ScaffidiFonti. “It was packed! But the service was prompt, and they were very quick about serving the meal. It’s a cozy atmosphere, nicely decorated, very tastefully done, and stylish. I felt an ambiance of comfort as soon as I walked through the door.” Scaffidi-Fonti said they chose the prime rib from the extensive menu, and it was “superb!”

Scaffidi-Fonti reported that the appetizer, entrée, salad and dessert were all included with the price of the meal, and a Valentine special also included a glass of champagne. “The owner came out to say hello to us and to the other diners,” ScaffidiFonti said. “It was the first time I had ever met him, but I went back today and he joined the Fort Plain Area M e r c h a n t s DOME49 Owner/Chef Richard Brown and Association.

With her ready smile and in Fort Plain activities, is also interested in supporting local sincere concern for the customers, it is easy to see that business. “I went to the farmer’s mar- Brown’s fiancée and restauket last year and I told the rant manager Tracy Montoni, farmers I would definitely be is an added benefit to the busiinterested in buying produce ness. Her Italian ancestry, and locally,” Brown stated, as he experience at Beardslee Castle, launched the authentic Italian cuisine you’ll see on the menu at DOME49. Brown said that the restaurant served 57 people on the evening of Valentine’s Day, and 266 dinners were served for their opening weekend, of Feb. 10. “Richard is very outgoing and a very hard worker,” said Lion’s Club member Amy Dievendorf. “He always was when he was in the Lion’s Club. Anything he puts his mind to, he goes all out. He’ll make it a success!” Diners (from left) Richard Flanger, Judy Flanger, Marjie Gentile Call the DOME49 for reser(partially hidden), Pat Gentile, Joe Kollmann, Sandy Kollmann, vations at 518-673-3600, or Michelle Gentile, and Gary Gentile raise their glasses in a check them out on the web at Valentine's toast to DOME49’s Owner/Chef Richard Brown and dome49.com. “There’s no place fiancée Tracy Montoni. like DOME!” laughs Brown.

Whatchmacallits Few fields of human endeavor have made the bounding strides that medicine has since the end of the 19th Century. But change was not always this rapid. From before the founding of Rome, bloodletting was an accepted medical practice. Bloodletting was based on the belief that the body contains four humors — phlegm, yellow bile, black bile and blood. An excess or deficiency of any of these humors was thought to directly influence a person’s health. Bloodletting, known as phlebotomy, was used to bring

v

the humors back into balance. The instrument shown here, called a fleam, was heavily used in the 18th and 19th centuries. A patient’s vein would be opened and blood collected in a bowl. The “treatment” was

stopped when the patient started feeling faint. George Washington asked to be bled heavily after he developed a throat infection. He died from the infection in 1799 after being drained of more than 3 1/2

pints of blood within 24 hours. By the early 20th Century, phlebotomy was condemned as quackery. This fleam, owned by Willis “Skip” Barshied Jr., is slightly corroded, not bloodstained.

(518) 993-4706 11 Division St., Fort Plain, NY Hrs: Mon.-Thu. 10-8 • Fri. 10-4 • Sat. 10-12 If your tax records are not currently affected by identity theft, but you believe you may be at risk due to a lost wallet, questionable credit card activity, or credit report, you need to provide the IRS with proof of your identity. You should submit a copy of your valid governmentissued identification — such as a Social Security card, driver’s license, or passport — along with a copy of a police report and/or a completed IRS Form 14039, Identity Theft Affidavit, which should be faxed to the IRS at 978-6844542. Please be sure to write clearly. As an option, you can also contact the IRS Identity Protection Specialized Unit, toll-free at 800-908-4490.

The IRS does not initiate contact with taxpayers by e-mail to request personal or financial information. The IRS does not send emails stating you are being electronically audited or that you are getting a refund. If you receive a scam e-mail claiming to be from the IRS, forward it to the IRS at phishing@irs.gov.

Make the most of your tax refund While preparing your tax return for electronic filing, make sure to use a strong password to protect the data file. Once your return has been e-filed, burn the file to a CD or flash drive and remove the personal information from your hard drive. Store the CD or flash drive in a safe place, such as a lock box or safe. If working with an accountant, you should ask them what measures they take to protect your information.

(StatePoint) — This year, the IRS estimates the average federal tax refund will be about $3,000. That’s the largest single chunk of disposable income most taxpayers receive in a year. If you’re due to cash in,

don’t waste it on things you don’t need. Put the money toward goals like college, retirement or eliminating debt. Consider free online services like Mint.com, which help you establish a budget for these goals.

Polishing antique furniture Should I clean and polish a Federal-style walnut sideboard that has been in the family for generations and looks dusty and drab? Many antique furniture pieces, particularly sophisticated ones like your Federal sideboard, had highly polished finishes. As you can imagine, in the period before electric lighting and manufactured plastic laminate, glossy surfaces that reflected and amplified light were highly prized. By cleaning and polishing your sideboard, you are restoring the early appearance and approximating the maker’s intent. In addition to being

unsightly, dust can abrade the finish. It can also create a microclimate of higher relative humidity that encourages mold growth and provides a food source for the mold. The best way to remove dust is with a HEPA vacuum and a magnetic dust cloth. Aerosol and liquid polishes should not be used on antique furniture. After the dust is removed and the piece cleaned, paste wax should be applied to the finished surfaces. A glossy surface can usually be achieved with one or two applications. Source: www. cr.nps.gov/museum

Spots on antique glass Is it true that mineral oil from the drug store can remove cloudy white spots on antique glass? Cloudy white spots on antique glass are not deposits. They are tiny holes that result from leeching or the loss of some of the chemicals in the glass. This kind of deterioration is often made worse by repeated washing with strong detergents. Because the spots are the result of loss, they cannot be cleaned off, although the appearance can usually be improved by a light application of mineral oil or baby oil. An improved appearance results from the oil seeping into the chemically deteriorated

y

areas and filling up the holes. It seems like no two susceptible pieces of glass deteriorate in the same way so there is no guarantee that the oil will work every time or completely remove the cloudy areas. Eventually the oil goes away and the cloudy areas return. If you want to give it a try, start on a small spot to see if it’s going to work for you. Use a piece of an old cotton T-shirt to apply the oil. Remember that oil makes glass very slippery so place a thick bath towel on your work area before you start and — be careful.

Preserving old newspapers I have several newspapers from the early 20th century documenting events in the history of the United States. They have discolored and tear easily. How can I preserve them for my children? Newspapers produced in the 20th century are printed on papers composed of wood pulp. Wood pulp papers have inherent problems including a high lignin content that causes discoloration and short fiber length that makes the paper weak. Exposure to light, improper handling and poor stor-

age can increase the rate of deterioration. To preserve them interleave newspaper with a buffered archival paper, place them in an archival paper folder and then in an archival paper box that is slightly larger than the outer dimensions of the newspaper. These materials can be purchased through archival supply catalogs. The box should be stored in a room that is dark and dry, but not an attic or basement. Source: www. cr.nps.gov/museum

Storing an old book I have an old book. How do I store it properly? If you have an old book in your house that is special to you or your family, you should consider special storage for it. One of the easiest ways to protect a book, especially a fragile or damaged one, is to place it in a box. Rare book boxes are made of high quality materials and can be purchased from archival supply companies. They can also be custom made by book conservators. A shelved book should not slouch, lean or be packed too tightly with other books. Also, rare books should never be stored in an uncontrolled environment such as an attic or basement.

by David Uffington Make 2012 the year you do it yourself When it comes to home repairs and maintenance, you don’t always need to hire others. Make this the year you do it yourself — and save money. Here are some projects you can do yourself if you take it one step at a time: • Install laminate and tile flooring: The key is making sure the base flooring preparation is appropriate for the laminate. Ask questions before you buy and read the instructions. Putting laminate flooring on a plywood subfloor upstairs is different than putting down flooring on concrete in a basement. • Plumbing: You can repair a leaky faucet or toilet that keeps running, install washers, toilets and sinks, and more, but know when the project is too big. If the project involves pipes that bring water into your home or if it involves digging up the yard, it’s too big. • Simple electrical repairs: You can install a new outlet, dimmer switch or thermostat. You can rewire a lamp. Buy a voltage detector and be sure to cut off the power at the circuit panel. The key is to know when a project is out of the range of your abilities — and safety. For many elec-

trical projects, your local code likely will require a licensed electrician. • Decorating: Look through magazines at the library for ideas that appeal to you. Paint, wallpaper and new slipcovers or throw pillows can change the look of any room. Here are some more tips: Some of the big-box hardware stores have videos on project howto, but the best ones are on YouTube.com where others have posted videos of their own. You’re also likely to learn more about what NOT to do by watching these. Expand your tool box if you need basics such as a hammer, two types of screwdrivers, and so on, but borrow any expensive tools you’ll only need once. If you haven’t done a project before, read the instructions twice. Ask for advice, and get a friend to help. If a friend is doing a new project, offer to lend a hand. You’ll pick up ideas and hints. Take classes: Saturday morning classes at the local big-box store can teach you the basics for various home-repair projects. Rule of thumb: Know your limits so you don’t end up paying more for a professional fix. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

This is a Hammer by Samantha Mazzotta Prepping for Spring It’s still February, but spring planting season is just around the corner — even in traditionally colder areas of the country like the Northeast, which experienced a warm winter with little snow this year. That means homeowners should be going over their outdoor lawn-care and garden tools and equipment, making sure everything is ready to go when March roars in. If you treated wooden-handled tools with linseed oil or other wood treatment and hung them up over the winter, take those tools down now and wipe away excess oil and check for water damage or other problems. Make sure that hinged parts move smoothly and are free of corrosion and dirt. Then, place the tools in an easily accessible place, ready to grab when you need them. Lawnmowers and other equipment also need to be readied for the growing season, even though it may be awhile before they’re needed. Take the lawnmower out of the garage or shed to a well-ventilated area. Check the blades to make sure they’re free of rust and corrosion; if you detached the blades for stor-

age, reattach now. Turn the mower upright and, with the spark plug disconnected and the fuel tank empty, give the starter cord a few pulls. Next, connect the spark plug and fill the tank with the proper fuel-oil mixture (see the manufacturer’s manual for details). Start the mower and allow it to run for a minute or two. Then, shut it down and store it upright in an easily accessible place, ready to use. Do the same with other outdoor equipment over the next couple of weekends. Not only will you know that your tools are ready when the weather is, but you’ll be able to repair any damaged tools or equipment before they’re needed. Home tip: Keep tools dry and accessible by installing a pegboard with adjustable hooks on one wall of the garage, shed or workspace. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Local vocals attract multi-county attendees to Broadalbin

by Elizabeth A. Tomlin There’s a place where folks gather on Sunday afternoons to dance, relax and to sing with the band. That place is the historic Broadalbin Hotel’s 1854 Pub & Eatery, and the band that has people coming back every week is the Fox Creek Band with renowned vocalist Linda Lee.

“I like the people and the atmosphere here,” Linda Lee remarked. “Everybody is like family.” People come from all over the Mohawk Valley to become part of this “family,” and some of the people that are among the crowd have been attending the weekly event for well over 20 years.

Linda Lee of St. Johnsville leads the vocals with the Fox Creek Band. Other band members include Ron Bender of Gallupville, John Mento of Oppenheim, Phil Minnich of Fort Plain, and Larry Edwards of Broadalbin. Photo by Elizabeth A. Tomlin

Janet Daves of Amsterdam says her brother played in the original band at the historic hotel. “We were right here from the very beginning,” Daves says. “My brother, Dick Barnes, was the first one who started the music here with Larry Edwards. They started playing here back in the 80’s, and I’ve been coming here almost every Sunday since then.” Daves recalls that the original band was called “Cheyenne.” Larry Edwards of that original band lives in Broadalbin and currently plays lead guitar with the Fox Creek Band. Lena Paro of Johnstown said she meets her cousin from Fort Plain at the dance on Sundays. “But if she can’t come, I come alone anyway,” Paro says. “It’s like family here. No one is a stranger.” Although it appears most people come to

dance, as the floor is crowded with dancers, folks from the audience are also invited up to sing with the band - and Linda Lee backs them up if they are shy about singing in front of the audience. Linda McIntosh of Broadalbin needs no back up and is a favorite and a regular vocalist, singing each week with the band. “She has a wonderful voice!” attested Janet Ouderkirk of Palatine. Ouderkirk has only been coming to hear the band for “about a year and a half.” Ruth Devoe of Fonda is also a regular vocalist, and is also credited with a beautiful voice. “I’ve been singing here for years,” Devoe reports. “We come for the music, to be with friends, and to sing. It’s like one big happy family!” For more information call 518-8835414.

Use the recommended grade of motor oil You can improve your gas mileage by 1–2 percent by using the manufacturer’s recommended grade of motor oil. For example, using 10W-30 motor oil in an engine designed to use 5W-30 can lower your gas mileage by 1–2 percent. Using 5W-30 in an engine designed for

5W-20 can lower your gas mileage by 1–1.5 percent. Also, look for motor oil that says “Energy Conserving” on the API performance symbol to be sure it contains friction-reducing additives. Source: www.fueleconomy.gov

Automotive Ask the TECH Questions

Tire Service What type of tires should go on my vehicle based on my driving? What can happen if I install a set of tires having a size not recommended for my car? My car shakes at certain speeds… What causes this? Can my driving habits affect tire life? Check Engine Light Does the light mean my car needs a tuneup? When checking out the cause of the light, are there any other services that need to be performed at the same time? Is it normal for the light to come on briefly when I start my

car? Air Conditioning Service What happens if I continue to use my car’s A/C system, even though it’s not cooling properly? Water drips underneath my car when I use the A/C system. Is this normal? A musty odor comes out of the A/C vents at times. Can anything be done about this? My car’s A/C system seems to cool intermittently and I hear a clicking on and off from underneath the hood. What does this mean? I have an older car that still uses R-12 or Freon refrigerant. Does it make sense to switch it over to R134a?

Automotive Ask the TECH Questions Carcare.org has compiled a list of questions to ask your technician before you have your maintenance performed. The questions cover: Oils, Filters and Fluids What fluids will you check? Is the oil you’re putting in my car the right type for the way I drive? Is an oil filter change included with this service? When should I get my next oil change? What fluid should I change next? How often should my fluid level be checked? Will my car’s instrument panel alert me if fluids are low? Belts and Hoses What’s the differ-

ence between a V-belt and a serpentine belt? Why does my aftermarket V-belt have notches? What are branched hoses and why might these be better for my vehicle? What is electrolytic corrosion and how did it get in my cooling system? Brake Service Is there anything I can do to help the brakes on my car last longer? How does the work being performed eliminate the symptoms my car exhibited or my complaint? Are there any related services my car needs while this service is being performed?

Being smart about weeds can save time, back strain by Dean Fosdick, AP Hand weeding is one of the most demanding chores in gardening, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Mulching, spraying, plant crowding and inexpensive stand-up tools can ease much of the back-straining work. “Weed control is personal,” said Barb Pierson, nursery manager for White Flower Farm, Litchfield, CT. “To me, there are two types of weeds. Those that spread quickly and look terrible, and those that don’t look so bad but if you leave them in your garden, it will appear messy.” “Some people enjoy cottage or natural gardens that have tons of weeds but you

don’t notice them because the flowering plants are so big and bodacious,” Pierson said. “Yet if you have a simple garden, those weeds will stand out.” It pays to know your plants before uprooting anything, she said. “Otherwise you might pull up something you like — something attractive that’s trying to self-sow and naturalize, like violas or pansies.” Weeds generally are considered the thugs of the garden because they steal sun, water and nutrients that you’re trying to direct toward edibles and ornamentals. They often appear unsightly and out of place. But weeds have a positive place in na-

ture. They can be used to prevent soil erosion, provide food and cover for pollinators, and supply organic matter to depleted ground. Despite all that, it may be necessary to do some hand weeding around the yard. And there are ways to save time and effort doing it. Weed after it rains, when the ground is softer and weeds are easier to pull. Weed when the plants are small. Weed whenever and wherever you see them pop up, at any time of year. Or try: • Crowding your favorite plants. “The lazy man’s guide to gardening is to plant your flowers so tight there isn’t room

enough for any weeds to compete,” Pierson said. • Mulching. “Compost and leaves can smother weeds while making your soil healthier,” Pierson said. • Using the right tools. Long-handled hoes, string trimmers and propane-fueled “flamers” have helped gardeners avoid many an aching back. • Spraying with synthetic herbicides. Weed-killing chemicals have proven effective, but don’t overdo it. Targeting the spray rather than broadcasting it, and timing applications for windless days should reduce some of the ecological hazards.

Whether you say bay-zil, or baa-zil, there’s one thing everyone will agree on. Juicy, sun-warmed tomato chunks mixed with olive oil, freshly torn basil and garlic spooned over hot pasta is truly a feast sublime. What’s pesto without fresh basil? Besides having extraordinary taste, basil is incredibly easy to grow. Not only does it add grace to the herb garden or tomato planting, but the numerous shapes and sizes make excellent additions to a perennial garden, shrub border or container garden. Smaller basil cultivars make a superb edging for the perennial border or vegetable garden. Plant a large maroon-leafed basil between lettuce and leeks for a splash of rich color. Cinnamon basil and orange-scented geraniums in a sunny container radiate the scent of warm orange-cinnamon rolls. Seed racks and catalogs are filled with amazing varieties. There are sweet, scented, Italian, Thai and Greek basils, each with a different leaf shape and flavor. Most edible basils are cultivars of the species Ocimum basilicum. The smooth-leaved types that grow two to three feet tall are the best-known for culinary use. There are also highly perfumed crinkly-leaved and ruffly-leaved varieties which make superb pesto and double as smashing focal points in the landscape. Opal basil’s deep red to purple leaves display a striking contrast to green, gray and blue-leaved plants in the perennial border. Culinarily, they make beautiful soft pink sorbets and vinegars. Although their flavor is superb, be cautious about using them in foods such as creamy white soups — their color may lend a dark purple or gray tint to the food, not very appetizing by most stan-

dards. In contrast to the large types, the tiny-leaved basils produce small, 6” mounds and are unmatched as edging plants. These small globe basils have a delicate flavor that is best used fresh. Basil asks for nothing more in the garden than full sun and well-drained soil. It grows quickly from seed, and multiple seedings provide a season long harvest. Basil thrives on warm weather and is frost sensitive, so don’t get impatient and sow seeds too early. Harvest basil just before flower buds form and continue harvesting to keep the plant producing in a bushy form. Once the plant begins to expend energy in flower and seed production it will lose some of its potency. Cut or pinch basil just above a leaf or pair of leaves, removing no more than a quarter of the plant. This leaves plenty of foliage to keep the plant healthy and looking good. To preserve basil, you can air dry, oven-dry or freeze: Simple air drying preserves the basil taste for use all winter. Rinse leaves in cool water, gently shake off extra moisture. When thoroughly dry, tie a handful of stems firmly into a bundle. Place bundle in a paper bag, gathering the top of the bag around the stems then tie again. Label and hang to dry where the temperature doesn’t get above 80 degrees F. After two to four weeks, the herbs should be dry and crumbly. To oven-dry, place leaves on a cookie sheet and put into a 180 degree oven for three to four hours, leaving the door ajar. Once basil is dried, store in an airtight container in a cool, dark cabinet. Keep the leaves whole if possible to preserve the oils. To retain just-picked flavor, freeze basil in water or

olive oil. Put a handful of washed leaves in a food processor with enough water or oil to make a slurry. When processed, pour into ice cube trays to freeze. Once frozen, store in a well-labeled freezer container. You can also make your favorite pesto recipe and freeze the final product. There are also many popular herb vinegar recipes available as yet another way to preserve your basil harvest for months to come. Enjoy!

Promote family time at the table Today’s families are busier and more budget conscious than ever and it seems like opportunities to come together are scarce. Kids may be engrossed in extracurricular activities and Mom and Dad may be putting in extra hours at work to make ends meet. But making the time for fam-

ily can improve family relationships and foster success for kids and adults alike. Perhaps nowhere does the opportunity to enjoy family time occur more than around the dinner table. Only one in five families sit down to dinner together, with many instead grabbing meals

on the go or choosing fast food. Neither option is especially healthy or cost-conscious. But there are ways even the busiest families can enjoy a healthy meal together without breaking the bank. Families can enjoy intentional time around the dinner table as a

lifestyle with these suggestions. • Embrace technology. It’s hard for many people, parents and children alike, to go an hour without being on the Internet. Families looking to spend more quality time together at the dinner table can now make the most of their time and

their budget thanks to EMealz.com, a user friendly online resource that provides a variety of easy and budgeted weekly meal plans, complete with delicious dinner recipes and a corresponding grocery list so you just print and go shopping! • Be efficient when shopping for groceries. Trips to the grocery store can quickly turn into expensive odysseys for unprepared shoppers. Since time is of the essence for most families, be sure to bring a grocery list along on your next trip to the grocery store. A well-planned list can drastically reduce time and money spent at the store, which only leaves more time for the family and money in your pocket. • Emphasize the im-

portance of dinner together. Eating dinner together is just as essential to building a strong family as healthy food is to building a strong body. Dinnertime provides the perfect opportunity for families to converse, connect with and relate to each other on a daily basis. “Instead of crowding your full plate, we think that families should simplify,” says Jane DeLaney, founder and President of E-Mealz.com. “Making time for a shared meal around the dinner table means more time together ... more enjoying, more embracing, more capturing moments, more memories, more eternal perspective, and more reflection. It means more of all the things that truly matter.”
