the question: We are thinking of buying property with a manufactured home on it. What should we be concerned about?

the answer: You should know the status of the title to the home located on the property. Many times manufactured homes or trailers, have titles just like automobiles do. You need to know the status of the title so as to insure you own the personal property (the manufactured home) as well as the real property (the land). Also, if you are looking to finance the purchase you will need to make sure your lender will agree to lend on a manufactured home.

culty falling back asleep. To help you get better sleep this year, Dr. Thorpy suggests these simple tips: • Set and stick to a sleep schedule. Establish a regular bedtime and wake time. • Set aside time at night to "wind down." Spend some quiet time before bedtime. Such activities as watching TV, using the computer or working right before bedtime, or in the bedroom, can make it harder to fall asleep.

Get some sleep... Some insomnia sufferers have trouble initially getting to sleep, while others

• Avoid caffeine and alcohol before bed.

wake up in the middle of the night and have difficulty falling back asleep. (StatePoint) There are many popular New Year‚'s resolutions that quickly come and go: eating healthy, losing weight, managing stress and saving money. In 2013, why not focus on one health change you'll enjoy sticking to... getting more sleep. According to the National Sleep Foundation, the average American sleeps about six hours and 55 minutes per night during the week, and 15 percent of adults sleep less than six hours per night. "Lack of sleep can take a significant toll on your overall health and interfere with some of your daily activities," said Dr. Michael Thorpy, director of the SleepWake Disorders Center at the Montefiore Medical Center in New York.

Almost everybody has trouble sleeping now and then, but many Americans experience significant problems getting to sleep or continually wake up in the middle of the night and can't fall back asleep. Such problems may be clinical symptoms of insomnia. According to the National Sleep Foundation, if you have trouble falling asleep at night or staying asleep, or you wake up in the morning feeling unrefreshed, you may be suffering from insomnia. Insomnia can affect people in different ways. Some sufferers have trouble initially getting to sleep, while others wake up in the middle of the night and have diffi-

• Exercise regularly. Just don't exercise rigorously near bedtime and check with your doctor before starting an exercise regimen. • Don't clock-watch. If you awaken in the middle of the night and stay in bed, don't lie there staring at the clock. And don't watch TV or use your laptop or cell phone, because these technologies stimulate the brain, making it tougher to fall back to sleep. If these tips don't help, speak with your healthcare professional to help determine if you are suffering from insomnia and require treatment.More information regarding insomnia is available at the National Sleep Foundation website at www.sleepfoundation.org.

Robinson Creek offers an exciting living opportunity at the sunny end of Cane Creek Valley at the corner of Mills Gap Road and Cane Creek Road. It’s perched just high enough to offer jaw-dropping views framed by incredible natural scenes of rolling North Carolina hillside. Conceived as a quiet community with private home sites, and neighbors you might wave to from your front porch, Robinson Creek is the new model for Western North Carolina living. By listening to what today’s buyer is truly looking for, the builder has developed a series of homes with distinctive architecture, open floor plans, high ceilings, and quality finishes. The homes strike the best balance between superior workmanship and value. At Robinson Creek you are just a few minutes away from South Asheville, which offers an abundance of restaurants, grocery stores, and retail shopping options. Cane Creek Middle School is only five minutes away. Downtown Asheville is an easy 20-minute drive, and you can reach the Asheville Regional Airport in just 15 minutes. Medical centers and major hospitals are located conveniently nearby. Here’s a snapshot: • Land and home packages priced from the low $300s • Elegant Craftsman mountain-inspired architecture • Five unique floor plans on .5 to 1.5 acre home sites • 1,800–2,300 sq. ft. homes (with the ability to expand) • Open floor plans • Granite countertops throughout, fireplace, and hardwood floors • Opportunities to expand and personalize your home within a design guideline • 10 ft. ceilings in the main-level living spaces • Tankless hot water heater • City water with natural gas and septic system • Already completed streets and curbs • County Taxes • A new model home (will be completed by January 2013) • A debt-free community and developer

(StatePoint) Whether you’re a new dog owner or you and your pooch have been best pals for years, there’s always room to make your home more pet friendly. Doing so will not only keep your dog safer and happier, but can also help protect your belongings and furniture from canine destruction. “Your dog is a member of the family,” says Dale Ryan, an animal photographer and author of the new book “Sleeping With the Beast,” an intimate look at the caninehuman relationship and the increasing role dogs play in our lives and homes. “Just as

steps, you can improve your dog’s home life and your pet ownership experience:

shapes. For sensitive dogs, opt for hypoallergenic stuffing.

• Be sure proper fencing is installed around your yard.

• Dogs have a tendency to rub against walls. Delicate papers can easily become damaged. Opt for paint over wall paper. It’s washable and less costly.

• When not at home, confine dogs to a certain area of the house to ensure their safety. A first-floor room is preferable in the event of emergency, such as fire. • Avoid installing wall-to-wall carpet in public areas of the house. Because of traffic flow, wood, stone, or tile floors with area rugs are better alternatives.

• Consult your veterinarian about nutrition. Cooking for dogs with lean meat, poultry and fish can keep them healthier. Grain-free treats and a raw food diet also work well. • Stainless steel bowls inside a stone trough container will keep water from spilling all over the floor. For a feeding bowl, use white buffalo China -- it’s heavy and there’s never food residue left behind. • If your dog likes to sleep in bed with you but is too old or small to make the jump from floor to bed, consider library steps. • Don’t forgo a duvet just because you have dogs. Place a heavy flannel sheet, which won’t shift like satin or cotton, over the duvet for your dog to sleep on. On your master bed use flannel sheets and pillowcases to keep bed linens clean.

Make your home pet friendly you would take steps to child-proof your home, so too should you make the same concessions for your dog.” Ryan points out that by taking a few simple

• When it comes to furniture, consider material that’s easy to clean and can withstand some abuse. Dogs may enjoy mashing stuffing in pillows into comfortable

• Dog beds should be hypoallergenic and covered in cotton, which is easy to wash. If you have wooden floors, the bottom of the bed should be ultra-suede fabric; so floors won’t be scuffed or scratched. Avoid wicker baskets because they can scratch your floor and your dogs may be tempted to chew them. More information about Ryan’s new book can be found online at www.sleepingwiththebeast.net. Remember, dog ownership is a big responsibility. But pet-proofing your home can make the experience a more rewarding one for both you and your four-legged companion.

Make holiday cooking easier on yourself (StatePoint) Holiday cooking is no easy feat. Meals tend to be more time-consuming and complex to prepare than standard fare. But by planning ahead, you can make all those delicious meals and treats in record time without undue stress. Stock Up Early Don’t leave your grocery shopping for the last minute. The stores will be overrun with other eleventh hour shoppers. The first thing you should do is to plan your menu in advance. Then take inventory of your fridge and pantry, and compose a detailed shopping list accordingly. When you’re crunching on time, the last thing you’ll want to do is run to the store because you forgot that crucial ingredient. Beef Up Your Kitchen Be sure your kitchen is well-stocked with the right tools to ensure proper execution of all those tasty holiday treats. Be sure your knives are sharpened and ready for the onslaught of meal prep. An extra set or two of measuring spoons and mixing bowls is also a great idea when you’re making so many dishes at once. You probably already have a food processor or

traditional blender, but adding a handheld immersion blender to your kitchen tool box will aid you in quick preparation of pureed soups, sauces and homemade whipped cream. The wrong gear can ruin a great recipe. Many holiday recipes call for zesting to add flavor and garnish to cookies, cakes, pies and drinks.

If you’re trying to zest with a peeler or poor-quality zester, you may be adding the bitter pith of citrus fruits to an otherwise delicious treat. Opt for a zester with v-shaped teeth that skim across the surface of citrus. For example, the Edgeware Better Zester has non-stick coating, ensuring smooth zesting and easy clean up. It also features a container with measurements, and a non-slip end piece for stability, so you can easily and comfortably follow your recipes accurately. More information on proper zesting can be found at www.edgewareproducts.com. Cook and Bake Ahead Not every kitchen task needs to happen on the day of your festivities. Lighten your load by prepping what you can beforehand. Bake cookies, brownies and breads in advance and store in the freezer with wax paper or an airtight container. Just be sure to let them cool to room temperature before storing. A sauce’s flavor improves with time, so prep your sauces a day in advance. Dice vegetables for side dishes ahead of time and store in plastic baggies in the fridge. Make a salad the day before and dress just before serving. Don’t let the joys of holiday entertaining be a cause for sorrow. Streamline your meal preparation with a little planning.
