Independent & Trusted Investment Advice

Storage on the Go If your friend offers you a last minute drive home from work, you can be sure he/she will ‘just need a minute to tidy up’ before you get in. As you climb in you notice the back seat is piled with papers, cans, map books and a jug of windshield washer fluid. If what goes on in your mind is, “Gee, his car is much neater than mine”, then you might have a slight problem with car clutter. There really is no need for the daily search for your seat before you get in your car. Take some time to organize your ride. Most car owners may find that the majority of clutter in their automobiles is actually trash. There are various options on the market for garbage. Depending upon the size of your vehicle and the passengers you carry daily, you may be able to fit a small garbage can in your back seat. There are also cloth garbage bags that can be hung from various spots in the vehicle. If spending money on garbage is not in the budget, the good old-fashioned plastic store bag will do, but that tends to get a bit messy if stepped on. Once the garbage is gone, take a look at what’s left. If you drive a larger vehicle with space between the front or back seats, you might consider a console for smaller items. There are several center consoles on the market that are universal and fit in most cars, trucks or minivans. Most consoles also have Continued on Page 6...

Another great way to organize is to hang storage pockets over the back of the car seats. There are many choices of seat organizers available. There are even some fun ones for kids that display favourite cartoon characters. Storage aside, the overthe-seat organizers are also great fabric protectors from muddy little boots. Of course the trunk is the main storage space in any vehicle. While you may use it to store items, there still needs to be room for anything else you may buy or need to transport. Cargo nets, bags and boxes help keep your trunk organized and clear of clutter. They usually adjust to fit the space and some even fasten to the vehicle. They are perfect for securing loose items like bottles of windshield washer fluid that tend to roll all over the trunk when you are in motion.

And finally, give your car a good vacuuming. After all that garbage is removed, you may find there are several salt stains left behind along with rocks and dirt. If you don’t have time to do this, perhaps a call to a car detailing shop is in order.

Spice Up Your Garden

There is nothing better than adding freshly picked herbs to your favourite dish. They are full of flavour and can change a mediocre meal into a tasty treat with just a sprig. Every meal can be this good if you grow your own herbs at home.

If you are considering spicing up your garden, there are a few things to know. Many herbs need full sun for about 6 hours a day. Plants or seedlings can be started in planters indoors in windows that have a lot of sun exposure, but they do better in outdoor gardens. After the frost has passed and the weather is seasonably warm, herbs can be moved outside. Most cannot tolerate cooler temperatures, however parsley and thyme are hardier and can take slightly colder weather. Soil conditions can vary when growing herbs. Some require moist, fertile soil while others need well-drained dirt. Basil, Sage and Thyme require well-drained soil. Mint, Oregano and Parsley need soil that is kept moist. Rosemary prefers drier conditions. Aside from the soil, there is no need to worry about pests. The aromatic oils in many herbs actually act as a deterrent for many insects and other pests. After your plants have grown, it’s time for the harvest. The best time of day for picking any herbs is in the morning. They are the most fragrant at that time.

Interlocking & Paving

Basil leaves are best picked during the summer. Young leaves can be dried or even frozen to preserve them for later use. Oregano is a perennial that can grow back each year in areas where the winter is not extremely cold. Wait until the plant is about five inches tall before you pick any leaves. Be sure to trim your plant periodically and pinch off any flowers to keep the plant producing full flavoured leaves. Store any harvested Oregano leaves in a bag with moist paper towels for up to five days in the refrigerator. The leaves can also be dried or frozen. Mint is a perennial that does better in warmer climates. Heavy frost will kill the minty plant. The herb needs to be in a controlled space for growing. If left in an open area, mint will spread like wild fire. Picking mint is simple, pull off the leaves you wish to use. Don’t grab more than one third of the leaves at one time in order to make sure there will be re-growth. Mint leaves can be stored for up to 5 days in the fridge. If you do a lot of Mexican, Caribbean and Asian cooking, you might want to add Cilantro to your garden mix. For a regular supply, cilantro needs to be planted about every two weeks. Drying the leaves changes the strength of the flavour. You can also grind them up to make coriander, which is the ground form of cilantro.

Mother/Daughter Spa Day It is never easy finding the perfect Mother’s Day gift for Mom. Gift Cards, jewellery, clothing and flowers all come to mind, but they make the list every year. Enough is enough. What would be a great gift to get mom this year that would be different? What about time and a little pampering? Mom has spent hours at any time of the day making sure that her family is well looked after. For one day let the tables turn and spend time making sure mom has what she needs. What about a day at the spa? Spa treatments are the gifts that keep on giving long after they are initially enjoyed. A calming day at a spa can leave mom feeling relaxed for the rest of the day or weekend. She will enjoy it even more if she can spend quality time with her daughter. For those working on a budget, a weekend away at the spa may not be affordable. Why not consider spoiling mom with a couple of day spa treatments? Manicures and Pedicures are relaxing ways to improve circulation and leave hands and feet feeling soft and pretty. It’s also a great mother-child bonding time. There are some spas that have treatments that are made with natural ingredients. Check with the spa to see if they offer more organic products. There are also some spas that cater to tweens.

Facials have a rejuvenating effect on anyone. Every mother looks in the mirror at some point and wonders where her younger self went. Treat mom to a ‘hers and hers’ facial. There are various types that clean, exfoliate and revitalize the skin. Some facial treatments will even boost collagen levels to help mom turn back time for a little while. Microdermabrasion will also help mom beat the clock. The technique exfoliates the top layer of skin promoting the growth of new healthy skin that creates a firmer and more youthful complexion. If facials are not on the top of mom’s list, there are other treatments that can help reduce stress. Most moms would appreciate spending an hour or more working out the kinks of a long work week. There are several types of massages that can help mom and daughter feel more relaxed. Tension relief massages help improve circulation and reduce stress-related symptoms like headaches and muscle aches. Hot Stone Massages combine hot stones with traditional massage methods. The heated stones help reduce tension and provide more relaxation. For those moms and daughters that are fans of massages, Deep Tissue Massages target the deepest layers of the muscles. These types of massages are intense and are great to help heal injuries. They are not for the faint of heart. If mom is not into exercise, this may not be the massage for her. It is common to be sore the day after a Deep Tissue Massage.

This Month IN HISTORY May Birthdays May is a month that most look forward to throughout the year. It is the beginning of much warmer weather and more sunshine. There are a few famous Canadians that would say the month means a lot more than just more time outdoors. It was on May 25, 1963 in Scarborough, Ontario that a Canadian Comedian was born. He would go on in his adult years to create some of televisions’ and the big-screen’s most beloved characters. Mike Myers was a long-time cast member of Saturday Night Live before he branched off to create the ever-popular Austin Powers. The first Austin Powers film debuted in 1997 with two more following in 1999 and 2002. Myers is also known as the voice of Shrek from the adored animated films featuring an Ogre named Shrek and his adventures in the land of fairytale characters. There is something funny about the month of May, at least when it comes to some of the famous faces that share birthdays. It was May 4, 1970 when a family in Toronto welcomed their son William. To the rest of the world, William goes by Will Arnett, comedian and actor. Will grew up in Toronto where his father worked as a corporate lawyer who later became the president and CEO of Molson Breweries. Will found his success in humour on the popular show, Arrested Development. More recently, he hides behind a cape as the voice of Batman in the Lego Batman movie. He may not wear a cape, but he has a commanding presence under a hood. Stephen Amell is a Canadian actor that is gaining ground. Amell stars as the Green Arrow on the tv show, Arrow. He shares his birthday month with Myers and Arnett. Amell was born on May 8, 1981.   He attended St. Andrew’s College before pursuing his dream of acting. Amell shares the family spotlight with cousin and fellow actor Robbie Amell who has appeared in the television show The Flash. Wendy Crewson is a veteran actress that was born in Hamilton, Ontario in 1956 but raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She celebrates her birthday on May 9th. She has appeared in many well-known television shows including ‘24’, ‘Saving Hope’ and ‘Crimes of Passion’. She has also starred in several movies. She appeared as Harrison Ford’s First Lady in ‘Air Force One’.  Sources: http://www.bornglorious.com/person/?pi=/m/0p__8 http://www.tribute.ca/people/wendy-crewson/5113/ http://www.biography.com/people/will-arnett-586014

Gorgeous Locks It doesn’t take much of a warm summer breeze to inspire most to let their hair down and enjoy the sun. With every toss of the tresses in the summer sun, hair is actually taking a beating. Hair is no different than skin, it can also be damaged by the sun’s hot rays. UV rays can actually scorch otherwise healthy hair. That is not all, cooling off in a pool may feel great at the time, but it can add to hair woes. Chlorine and other chemicals are known to dry out hair causing split ends and breakage. So, how is it possible to enjoy the upcoming summer without ruining a healthy head of hair? It takes a little time and a lot of tender loving care. Start the summer season off with a trim. Get rid of any existing split ends and breakage. Swap out regular hair care products for some that have UV filters. For those that colour their hair, products that protect against the sun will also keep colour from fading. Hats are an even better way of protecting hair from the hot sun. They also protect the scalp and ears from any damage that can lead to skin cancer. Before heading to the pool, apply a leave-in conditioner. It coats each strand and helps protect the hair against any chemicals. While taking the plunge to cool off, pool chemicals are stripping the hair of natural oils. After swimming, make sure to rinse. Take a warm shower with fresh water to wash away the chlorine and other chemicals. If a shower is not available, look for a different way to rinse. A spray bottle with clean water can be a good alternative to a shower. Everyone has a busier social calendar in the summer and many events are held outdoors or at the pool. This may mean an increase in the number of showers. After all, no one likes to feel sticky and sweaty. Switch out any regular shampoos for anti-residue shampoos about once a week. The anti-residue component will strip away any chemical and product build up that has been left behind. Don’t forget to add a deep-conditioning treatment to the regime every week to reinforce healthy locks.  Summer humidity can wreak havoc on many styles. If frizz is the summer hairdo, follow a regiment of regular conditioning and trims. Invest in a bottle of anti-frizz oil to help smooth out the out-of-control tresses. A bottle will go a long way. It only takes a small drop of oil to work its magic. Too much oil will weigh the hair down and take away its bold body. Styling is part of the regular hair care routine, but blow dryers and flat irons can dry out hair. Try skipping the hot hair tools twice a week in the summer. Let the locks air dry after using a good quality conditioner.

Removing that Mighty Oak The once mighty oak tree that sat proudly in your front yard has seen better days. It may still have some life left in it, but it’s very big and has several branches that are no longer sprouting new growth. The past winter was not kind and several storms battered down branches making the tree seem a bit unstable. You decide it’s time to take the tree down. Before you grab your chainsaw and starting carving away at the trunk, check with your town. If you remove that tree without a permit you could be violating a town bylaw. Some municipalities restrict any removal of a tree from any property. Other towns and cities have more lenient rules allowing trees of a certain size to be removed without a permit. Check with your municipality to see what kind of permit may be needed if any. Fines for breaking the bylaw can be hefty. Removing a dead tree or even one that is alive can be a challenge. Before donning the protective gear and revving up the chainsaw, look around. Are there any fences, buildings or hydro wires in the way? Larger trees have a greater falling area. Consider trimming some of the branches before chopping down the whole tree. Once you have a safe place for the tree to fall where it cannot damage anything, plan an escape route for yourself. Should the tree decide to sway a different way, you

want to make sure that you can jump to safety. Clear the area of any people or pets before chopping. The first cut you are going to make is not across the entire base of the trunk. You are going to want to undercut the tree. That means you take a v-shaped chunk out of the trunk on the side you want the tree to fall. This v-shaped cut will be about a 90-degree angle. Now you want to cut a straight chunk out of the other side, but make sure it is higher than the top of the undercut. You must make sure the back cut is higher and that you have not cut all the way through the trunk or the tree may shift. Sound confusing? The larger the tree the harder it will fall. You will be left with a tree stump. Digging this out can be a chore. Most opt for a bit of help by using a stump removing liquid that makes the wood soft enough to break up with an axe, but it’s harmful to nearby pets and people. There are several companies that know how to properly remove a tree without causing any damage or endangering any lives. If you are a little intimidated by the mighty oak, consider calling a tree removal service. Most companies not only fell the tree and remove the stump, they also take away the wood.

Youth BEAT The Harm in Sugary Drinks By Samantha Forani, Graduate of McMaster University It is no secret that sugary drinks have become a concern in the diets of children and young adults. While many attempts have been made to minimize the consumption of sugary drinks, from removing pop and sugar filled juices form vending machines at schools, and encouraging the consumption of healthy drinks, it has not been enough. Studies have shown over the next twenty-five years, sugary drinks will be responsible for obesity in more than three million Canadians. The average youth, aged nine – eighteen, drinks five hundred and seventy-eight millilitres of sugary drinks which can contain up to sixteen teaspoons of sugar. This puts them well over the recommended daily sugar maximum of ten percent of total daily calories. Furthermore, the consumption of sugary drinks is proven to result in certain medical ailments such as tooth decay, Type Two Diabetes, heart problems and stroke, and some cancers. While sales in some sugary drinks have decreased in the last few years, sales in things like energy drinks, sugary coffees, and sweetened dairy

products have increased drastically as well. And we can all imagine that sweetened coffees and energy drinks are a real issue for students trying to keep up with the pressures of school. Now obviously it does not hurt to have the odd sugary drink once in a while, but you may want to consider the drink of choice when you do. The average person should not have more than approximately thirteen teaspoons of added sugar a day. A pop has about ten added teaspoons, and an energy drink has about fourteen teaspoons of added sugar. In that one energy drink you have exceeded your daily limit. This list goes on and on until the classic variety store slush drink which has about twenty four added teaspoons. Sugary drinks are the largest contribution to calories in the average diet, and in order to have real results, every young adult, and parent needs to make a real conscious effort to change their diet. Staying hydrated is incredibly important, and while sugar infused drinks are the most appealing, alternatives like water can be made just as enjoyable. If plain water is not quite enough, you can purchase sparkling water in any grocery store. As well, you can purchase carbonation machines that are small and perfect for any kitchen which can instantly add carbonation to your water. You could then squeeze a bit of fresh lemon or lime into it to make your drink all the more satisfying. Sugary drinks are a concern for people of all ages, but youth do not often consider the cost of what they are putting in their bodies. The next time you go to purchase a pop, just really think if it is the right choice, and what better option is there for you?

Finally Free From Arthritis Pain Without Drugs And Harmful Side Effects. Living with arthritis pain can affect every part of your life. It keeps you from enjoying the good things in life – time with grandkids, playing golf, even working in the yard. It would be nice to get out of bed – just one morning – without pain. Every time you try and push through the pain…like standing or walking for a long period of time…you pay for it for the next 2-3 days with even more pain.

My name is Dr. Joshua Nikkanen, owner of Crossroads Chiropractic. Over the past 15 years since we’ve opened the doors, I’ve seen hundreds of people come in suffering with arthritis and leave the office pain-free. I’ve made it my mission in practice to help those suffering with chronic pain like you.

“I only wished I had found you sooner”

Do you have any of the these Arthritic problems? • • • • • •

yet arthritis and joint degeneration has not affected every one of them – only your previously injured joints that never healed properly.

Osteoarthritis Rheumatoid arthritis Bursitis/tendonitis Degenerative joint disease Lumbar disc problems Aching pain in the arms or legs

Pain Pills Are Not The Answer Do you remember the Vioxx scandal? It was a medication designed to relieve arthritis pain…but like all drugs, it had side effects. After years of use worldwide, the makers withdrew it from the market because of the overwhelming evidence it caused heart attacks and strokes. There’s a time to use pain medications, BUT not before seeking a natural way to correct the CAUSE of the problem! Ask yourself … after taking all these pain medications…maybe for years…are you any better off?

Pain Is Not Just ‘Old Age’ Have you had one doctor after another telling you this is just the natural process of the body getting older - that you should expect to have arthritis. Sure, if you don’t take care of your damaged joints now, as you get older they will be worse (which is why you shouldn’t wait any longer to see if I can help you.) However, old age is not the cause of your arthritis. I’ll venture to say all 360 joints in your body are the same age,

I hear this too often, so I decided to do something about it and run this ad. Just call before May 18 and you’ll get my “Arthritis Evaluation” for only $35. • An in-depth consultation about your arthritis where I will listen…really listen. • A complete nerve, muscle and spinal exam to find the “cause” of your problem. • A full set of specialized x-rays to look for joint degeneration (arthritis)… (NOTE: These would normally cost you at least $100). • A thorough analysis of your exam and x-ray findings so I can show you how to fix the problem. I’ll answer all your questions about chiropractic and arthritis pain. The appointment will not take long at all and you won’t be sitting in a waiting room all day either. To take me up on this special offer, you must call before May 18, 2017. Call today…Phone 905-830-1146 In addition to that, here’s what some of the top medical researchers had to say about chiropractic… “Manipulation [chiropractic adjustments], with or without exercise, improved symptoms more than medical care did after both 3 and 12 months.” —British Medical Journal

Are you suffering from arthritis pain? If so, relief may be easier than you think.

“Chiropractor’s manipulation of the spine was more helpful than any of the following: traction, massage, biofeedback, acupuncture, injection of steroids into the spine and back corsets, and ultrasound.” — Stanley Bigos, MD, Professor of Orthopedic Surgery

Feel the Improvement – and Say “Yes” to Life Again With my “Arthritis Evaluation”, we can find the problem and then correct it. Think of how you could feel in just a few short weeks. See and feel your life change for the better. Start your body on the way to pain-free, normal living. Feel tight joints rest, relax, free up. Feel muscles tied in knots become more supple. Feel strength in your muscles increase. As you begin to see motion returning to your joints, you’re preventing and reducing chances of disability and a crippling future. You’re playing golf again -- hitting longer drives, smoother putts, and lower scores…without pain.

Arthritis can be successfully treated. Healthy, pain-free living should be yours. Call anytime between the hours of 7:30 am and 6:00 pm Monday through Thursday. Tell the receptionist you’d like to come in for the Special Arthritis Evaluation before May 18, 2017. We can get started with your consultation, exam and x-rays as soon as there’s an opening in the schedule. Our office is called Crossroads Chiropractic and you can find us at 45 Eagle Street in Newmarket (just 2 doors east of Yonge St. on the north side). I look forward to helping you get rid of your pain so you can start living a healthier, more joyful life.

Sincerely, Dr. Joshua Nikkanen, D.C. P.S. Life’s too short to live in pain like this. Call today 905-830-1146 and soon I’ll be giving you the green light to have fun again.

Don’t Live Another Day Like This. Call And Schedule For Your Evaluation.

Senior BEAT A Smart Home Aging is never easy. There are physical and mental changes that can make every day routines challenging. For those in the senior population, aging can mean having to move from his/ her home into the home of a loved one or into a senior building. It is not always because of the need for constant care. How can those who are otherwise self-sufficient remain in their homes longer? Maybe it’s time the house itself helped out. There are many ways to make a house smarter. That is, there are innovations that help the house look after its owners.  It’s never fun stumbling into a dark room to try to find the light switch. It’s even worse for someone that is not very sure footed. There are options for those that need a little light on the subject. Wireless technology has made it possible to turn on a light before someone even enters a room. That same technology can also make sure the lights go off when there is no one present. Programmable thermostats are not just for the aging, but they can be very effective in helping to control heating costs for those on fixed incomes. Fire and carbon monoxide detectors may be mandatory for all homes, but not all detectors are created equal. Some are smarter than others.

Leaving appliances on can happen to anyone, but it can happen more often to an aging brain. There are smart home systems that are making their way into more homes. Some systems have sensors that can turn off appliances including stoves and even irons. Some systems use sensors that plug into electrical outlets and the appliance is then plugged into the sensor. Any information about the appliance can be accessed through a computer or smart phone. Family members that are concerned about their relatives wandering and becoming disoriented can look into a system that will alert them if their older loved one wanders away from home at any time of the day. The system sends a text message to a family member of any odd movement. If a loved one leaves the house in the middle of the night, a family member will know. This system can even alert family to any restlessness or anxious behaviour.  Falls are likely the most common issue with seniors that live alone. Everyone has heard a story about a senior falling and getting hurt when he/she was alone. Some systems can assist with keeping track of the welfare of a loved one. There are sensors that can be installed, even in the bathroom, that would send alerts if a loved one fell.

1. Combine the raw cocoa butter, coconut oil and almond oil in a small pot and heat on medium low until everything is melted. Be careful not to bring the contents to a boil. 2. Place your silicone heart mold on a cookie sheet and pour the melted butter into your mold. 3. Once the mixture has cooled slightly, add your lavender essential oil. 4. Place the filled mold in your refrigerator and allow your homemade lotion bars to cool completely (it should take about 1 hour) 5. Gently pop your homemade lotion bars out of the mold and store them in an airtight container or in the refrigerator. 6. The bars will begin to melt in your hands if you hold them for very long, which makes them perfect for a nice warm oil massage.
