Campfires Clear area of all debris. Avoid area with overhanging branches. Construct a fire ring surrounded by rocks. Have a bucket of water, shovel and a fire extinguisher nearby and ready to put out a fire. Gather wood and stack in separate piles away from fire area. Do not use green or freshly cut wood. There are three different kinds of wood needed for a successful campfire Tinder - small twigs, wood shavings, dry leaves or grass, dry needles, bark or dryer lint. This should start to burn immediately with a lighted match. Kindling - small sticks 1â&#x20AC;? around or less Fuel- larger wood that keeps the fire going Elements required for a fire to burn properly are fuel, heat, and air. When one of these three things are removed, the fire stops burning. Example -- Water cools fuel below ignition point, dirt cuts off the oxygen supply. Fuel- material that will burn Heat - enough heat to bring fuel to ignition Air - to provide oxygen to burning process Start with a couple hands full of tinder loosely piled in the center of your fire ring. With your back to the wind and match protected by the cup of your hand, ignite tinder with a match. Discard used match into the fire. Slowly add more tinder. You may need to blow softly at the base of the fire. Once the tinder has fully started to burn, slowly add some smaller pieces of kindling. Keep close together but allow space for air. Gradually increase the size of the kindling you add to the fire. When you have a good fire going , add the fuel one piece at a time as described below. Allow for adequate air flow.

Canoe Safety Tips

Call your REALTOR® about the

Be prepared, some things to keep in mind when planning your trip.

$8000 home buyer TAX REBATE!

- The two most important things to bring are sunscreen and bug spray.

If you are a first time home buyer or a buyer that hasn’t owned a home within the last 3 years, and are purchasing a home between the dates of January 1, 2009 and December 1, 2009, there is a government program available to you that allows for a tax rebate of up to $8,000.

- Bottled water should be the first thing to fill the cooler. - Everything that you bring should be in sealed plastic bags. The reality that your canoe may tip should be present in your mind. Sometime it cannot be helped with even the best canoers. - Stay away from bringing food that needs to be really cold. Avoid unnecessary garbage and bring bags for the garbage you do create. - Make sure that before you push off from shore you have two oars per canoe. Also, double check that everyone has a life jacket. Once this is confirmed, kick back and enjoy!! Remember be safe and cautious and all will comeback satisfied and extremely worn out!!

Recycling Batteries Non-rechargeable (typically “alkaline batteries”) still don’t have a recycler and general just must be disposed in the trash. If you have large quantities or are a business, talk with your permitted sanitary landfill operator (otherwise known as “sanitation services”, the “dump” or “landfill”). Waste batteries should not be burned because of the metals, and they could explode. When burned, some heavy metals such as mercury may vaporize and escape into the air, and cadmium and lead may end up in the ash.

Recycling used RECHARGEABLE household batteries is now possible! The battery manufacturers have funded a joint recycling center. To find a center near you that will take them, just type this address (http://www.ehso.com/ehso2. php?URL=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.rbrc.org/call2recycle/drop off/index.php) in your browser window. Once the site comes up there will be an area for you to enter your zip code. It will produce a list of all local businesses that participate. Rechargeable batteries are commonly found in cordless power tools, cellular and cordless phones, laptop computers, digital cameras, two-way radios, camcorders and remote control toys. http://www.ehso.com/ehshome/batteries.php

Bass Fishing Tip

If you are having trouble attracting that bite, execute a simple change in the way you are fishing.

Try changing the way you are reeling the bait in. Reel in using a different speed. Try reeling slow and steady for awhile, and if that isn’t working, then pick up the pace. You might even reel a few feet, stop reeling, then reel some more and stop again as if you are teasing your prey.
