You want to be able to take your time to find your ideal dress. You also want to leave enough time to order the gown and have any adjustments made. If the groom is wearing a tuxedo, it should be reserved about four months before the wedding. Couples should decide on the entertainment for the reception and the ceremony about 8 months before the day. Do you want live music at the ceremony? Are you planning on a DJ or a band for the reception? You will need to book your act so that you are not left with Uncle Louis and his MP3 player.   Flowers are an important part of every wedding. You can create an elaborate display or keep it simple. Visit a florist and discuss what kind of flowers will work best with your wedding.   TOP TORONTO STYLIST with 18 Years' Experience!

This Month IN HISTORY April Fools Day It’s difficul not to talk about a certain day in April when referring to the month. After all, it is the very fi st day of the fourth month of the year. April 1st is more affectionately known as “April Fools Day”. Anyone who enjoys playing tricks on others looks forward to the fi st day of April. While it has been around for as long as most can remember, just when did this day of trickery begin?   No one knows truly when April Fools Day was b orn. Some historians believe that the day of pranks began in ancient Rome during the festival of Hilaria when people dressed in disguises. Others believe that April Fools Day started in 1700. It was that year that English tricksters began the tradition of playing practical jokes. All Fools’ Day, as it is also known has been celebrated for centuries by many cultures. It was in the 18th century that Scotland made the tradition a two-day event. The fi st day of the ‘holiday’, the pranks consisted of sending people on phony errands. It was called ‘Hunting of the Gowk’. The second day was referred to as ‘Tallie Day’, it was a little different than the hunt. This day involved pinning fake tails or ‘kick me’ signs on others’ posteriors. Simple pranks became far more elaborate as the years passed. Now, pranksters go to great lengths to play a trick. Even newspapers, television and radio have taken part in April Fools Day.  

A British broadcaster fooled its viewers on April 1, 1957 when the network reported that Swiss farmers were delighted with a record spaghetti crop. The ruse even showed video of farmers harvesting noodles from trees. In 2008, the same b roadcaster went to the b irds for its prank. It aired video of flying penguins as part of a news segment. In 1962, a Swedish television station that broadcast in black and white promised viewers they could watch their show in colour. Interested viewers would just need to place a nylon stocking in front of the screen. There were many television sets sporting a pair of stockings that day. Print media didn’t miss its chance to get in on the fun a number of years later. A sports magazine impressed readers with a story about a hot rookie pitcher in 1985. The rookie could throw a fastball more than 168 miles per hour, or so the fake article claimed. While the corporate world strives for the last laugh of the day, there is nothing funny about the bottom line for joke stores. April Fools Day may not be an officia holiday, but it is still a day that sees many pranksters open their wallets and spend a few dollars on props for the ultimate joke. Some leave their pranks at home while the more daring take it into the workplace. Sources:

Kids in the Kitchen What’s for dinner? We have all heard that restless cry from another room around the food-b ewitching hour. Every day b etween five and six o’clock the pressure is on to create a meal that your family will eat, or b etter yet, like. Parents would give anything to have that pressure alleviated and the children magically fed. Since there is no such thing as a fairy grandmother, meeting the demands of the kids doesn’t have to b e an epic b attle. In fact, you do not have to do it alone. Get the kids involved! When is the right age to introduce your child to cooking? Some would say that as long as they can stand, they can cook… or at least pretend to cook. Letting your little one ‘cook’ with pots and pans while you are making dinner is the first step in getting them interested in the kitchen. As they get older, they can move from playing cooking to really helping. Most kids b y the age of three want to b e a part of whatever you are doing. Invest in a safe stool for your tot and welcome them to help you prepare dinner by washing vegetab les and stirring ingredients. Talk them through everything you are doing as well. They will take in more than you even realize. The older your child gets, the more control he or she will have over his or her mixing and washing skills. Five year

olds make great bakers. Get your pint-sized helper to measure ingredients and mix. Kneading is also a great way for your little one to use up some energy. There is no real age for a child to take on responsibilities in the kitchen. It is up to the parents to decide what they think their children can handle. Many parents would think that seven year olds are too young to start cutting vegetab les. Others say that their children are careful and can handle ‘dangerous’ utensils with instruction and guidance. It really is up to the parents to deem what is right for their children. By the time kids reach the age of 8, they are quite capable of handling the planning of a meal. Get them involved in figuring out what meals to make for the week. They will b e more likely to help with the preparation if they feel a part of the planning process. Make your child responsib le for one part of the meal. Let them have the freedom to look after that aspect, but don’t leave them unattended.  Once your child reaches 12, they are looking for recipes to create all b y themselves. Let them plan an entire meal and give them a chance to make it alone. They will want their space in the kitchen, b ut they may require a little help. This is where the tables have turned and the parent becomes the sous-chef.

Start Your Seedlings Any gardener will tell you that they cannot wait for old man winter’s last gasp so they can take the gloves off their green thumbs and get their hands dirty. Canada’s short growing season makes it difficu for many to start the growing process as soon as they would like. There is no reason to wait for the snow to clear to begin gardening. Bring the garden inside.

will need to be pushed in further.

Starting plants from seedlings is a cost-effective way to create a diverse garden. It is much cheaper to b uy seeds for several plants than it is to buy the actual plants. Garden centers are clearly the best option for buying plants, but they also have a variety of seeds as well.

Vigorous watering can displace newly planted seeds. Avoid using any pitchers or watering cans that will allow the water to fl w too quickly or too harshly. Try using a spray bottle on a mist setting to water any plants. This may take a while, but it will ensure the soil is watered without moving the seeds. A turkey baster is also a great device to use when watering new seeds. It allows a more steady fl w of water without causing any disruption of the seeds.

The best time to start an indoor garden is about six weeks before the last frost is expected outdoors. Before you b egin b urying seeds in planters, be sure to read the directions on the packaging. There are some seeds that need to be started in water before being placed in ‘dirt’. When you are ready to plant, use clean containers that have a mixture of soil-less peat moss, vermiculite and perlite. This blend will hold enough water for the plants and will still allow oxygen to fl w. Before adding the mixture to the planters, moisten it with warm water. The containers should be filled o just below the rim. Most seed packages will explain how the seeds should b e planted. Some can be pressed gently into the mixture, while others

Your local authorized Alliance dealer!

After the seeds have b een planted, cover the containers with plastic. Be sure to punch holes with a toothpick into the top to make sure there is adequate ventilation. Follow directions on the seed packages for any watering.  

The seeds will need a warm spot to grow. They thrive in temperatures of 18 to 24 degrees Celsius. The tops of refrigerators can be great spots for planters. Once the seedlings begin to appear, remove the plastic and move the containers to an area that has bright light. When the sprouts begin to grow their second pair of leaves, transplant the seedlings into new pots that contain potting soil and an adequate amount of compost. Be sure to water the new plants well and keep them out of direct sunlight for the fi st few days. Soon enough, you will see your new plants blossom!

Summer Camp Jitters There are many parents that will say their experiences at summer camp when they were kids were memorable. They went away for a couple of weeks every summer to spend time with their friends. Now it is the parents’ turn to send their kids away for a summer experience. Why is it so difficult? Sending kids off to camp for a week, two weeks or even the whole summer can b e nervewracking for any parent. It is normal to b e concerned ab out a child’s physical and emotional well-b eing. How can parents handle the stresses of sending their children away? First of all, it is perfectly normal for a parent to feel anxious ab out sending a child to camp. Parents may see possib le challenges for their children, b ut it is important not to dwell on them. Don’t ignore them, b ut do not dwell. Children will b e ab le to tell if a parent is feeling anxious and that could make their experience more trying. Worrying tends to come from the unknown. If a parent can understand and picture a situation, it will help to decrease any anxiety. Most children will feel anxious about being away from home, even if she/he has done it b efore. If the child is not showing signs of anxiety, parents should not assume they need reassurance. Statements telling the kids that everything will be fine may lead them to believe that there is something to worry about. Communication is very important in any family and that includes when someone is away.

Parents should make a communication plan with their children. Discuss the camp’s policies and make a plan to email at the scheduled camp times. It will help both parents and kids to know they can chat. One of the hardest parts ab out b eing away from a child is wondering if they will follow through with the ‘right’ things to do. Parents should trust their parenting and understand that the values and morals they have worked hard to instill in their children will come out. Other camp parents can be a great source of support for those needing to talk. Chat with others who have sent their children to camp. They can share their secrets to navigating through the camp weeks. There are many helpful websites as well that offer great advice. Take advantage of the kid-free weeks and make some time for some adult fun. There are many things that parents cannot do normally because they have commitments at home. Go out for a spontaneous dinner mid-way through the week. Plan a weekend away at a couples resort. It’s a great time for couples to remember what their relationship was like before they had children. Before you drop the kids off at camp make sure to send them off with a short b ut loving goodb ye. Gushing over the child and telling him/her that they will b e missed will only add to any anxiety.

Anyone who has tried to sell a house will tell you how stressful the process can b e. You go through the clutter, you fix any issues and you clean every corner. After all of that hard work your home should sell quickly, right? Well, maybe not. Some homeowners become anxious if their houses do not sell after 45 days on the market. Others feel completely stressed if the ‘for sale’ sign still sits on their lawn after 30 days. All things are relative. Before stressing out over the amount of time your home is on the market, check the statistics for your area. Some cities have an average selling time of 30 days, while others can be longer. While you cannot control the buyers, you can control the appeal of your home.   After de-cluttering and cleaning, many homeowners add the lock box to the front door and call it done. But are you? Could your home look even better setting it apart from others on the market?     When the real estate market is strong and competition is fierce, every little detail counts.   If you are not a detailed person, consider enlisting the help of someone with an eye for flare.   If you have ever watched a home renovation show, you’ve seen the talents of a home stager. Home stagers are the silent help that sneak in and create an entirely new feeling for a home.

They do this by choosing a theme, painting rooms using neutral colours, and rearranging furniture in a more inviting setting. They also bring in accessories such as mirrors, silk flowers, floor lamps, area rugs and drape window coverings with simple lines. When calling a home stager for decorative help, there are a few things to take into consideration. During the first tour of your home, be sure to address a few questions.   Curb to Counter. Will the home stager b e covering all of the bases with their designs?  That means, will they make sure that the outside curb appeal of your home is just as inviting as the interior.   Furniture Fussing. Whose furniture will b e appearing in this production? Will the stager use existing furniture or will they require you to move your items out? Stagers tend to have their own supply of furniture that helps create the looks they want.     How much? It is the magic question, b ut for two reasons. Some stagers will de-clutter and paint your home depending upon what you need and want. That b rings us to the cost. Ob viously, services vary. The average price of a home stager is about $400 for the de-cluttering and cleaning. The cost can reach up to $2000 for more involved staging but experts agree, the price is well worth it as most staged homes tend to bring in more buyers and the potential to sell the home at a higher price.

I didn’t expect it to feel like home.

Adaptive Clothing

Feeling at home means enjoying the things you like to do. Which is why at Amica, you can always enjoy your day the way you want to.

Buttons at the b est of times can b e tricky to fasten. Some b uttons can b e small and the holes can b e very tight. For someone suffering from arthritis or a mob ility issue, just getting dressed can b e a challenge. What to do? Make your clothing adapt to your needs. There are some clothing companies that are interested in more than just what’s fashionable. They are making fashions with those in mind that may not have the strength or mobility in their hands or upper body to adjust tricky fasteners.

When shopping for adaptive clothing, there are things to look for that will help arthritic hands and those with flexib ility issues. Pants with elastic waists may be easier to get on than those with buttons and zippers. These can be pulled up and fit around the waist without any fasteners.

Velcro can b e the b est fastening choice for anyone with mob ility or flexib ility issues.

There are pant designs for b oth men and women that have closures on the side instead of on the front or the back. These styles often have a zipper or a set of snaps. This kind of design is b etter for those who don’t have issues with arthritis or hand mobility.  When thinking ab out clothing that is easier to use, don’t forget ab out shoes. There are many styles of supportive footwear that are ‘user friendly’. Bending over to tie shoes can b e challenging enough, forget skinny shoelaces that can b e difficult to tie. Slip-on-shoes are the b est footwear for someone with arthritis or flexibility issues. They can be easier to put on and they do not involve tricky shoelaces. Slip-onshoes with Velcro fasteners are also a great choice of footwear for older feet. When buying adaptive footwear, be sure to get those that provide adequate support. Shoes with non-skid soles and wider widths are also the best choices. For comfort at home, there are also Velcro slippers available.

How To Get Relief From TMJ Pain •

Do you have any of the following conditions...

• Pain and muscle spasms in the TMJ • Clicking or popping jaw joints • Grinding teeth at night • Locking up of the jaw • Headaches ...if so, you must read this article now. Are you living with the daily agony of TMJ Disorder? Have you had it for so long you don’t remember what life was like before jaw problems? TMJ pain is very hard to live with. Sometimes people think you aren’t friendly because it’s so painful to smile. Or maybe you just don’t feel like going anywhere because you hurt so bad. Perhaps you even get those “lightning shocks” in your jaw when you try to chew food or clench your teeth. One TMJ sufferer said it like this... It’s like it affects your entire personality and people just think you’re angry because you’re not talking a whole lot or smiling at all. I hate this disease, and I feel for anybody not getting any relief. When it’s bad(which it often is)it feels like I’m a trapped, cornered and hurt animal. My name is Dr. Joshua Nikkanen. Over the helped hundreds of TMJ sufferers walk out of _

If You Suffer From Jaw Pain, Clicking or Locking, Now There’s Hope.

Proof This Treatment Works Multiple studies have proven that chiropractic care is effective in treating TMJ disorders. One medical study surveyed 192 patients with TMJ Disorder. They reported that over two-thirds of patients used treatments other than drugs and surgery to get better. Of all the methods used, those that used “hands on” (like chiropractic) treatments reported being the most — (J Orofac Pain. 2003) Another study showed that after TMJ patients went for chiropractic care, they had dramatically decreased jaw pain and were able to open their mouth more. — ( JMPT 2003)

No One Should Have To Suffer The Way You Do.

In my practice, we use gentle techniques to help those with jaw problems. As a result, it’s common for former TMJ disorder patients to get well and stay well.

Your jaws are important to your survival. When you’re in severe pain, simple tasks like eating

Chiropractic care can correct the problem of TMJ pain by working on the misalignments in the jaw, as well as problems between the spine and nervous system.

This is why I’ve made it my mission in practice to help those suffering with chronic TMJ problems.

This treatment relaxes the muscles, adjusts the position the jaw. In fact, many TMJ sufferers have neck and back problems as well. This is particularly the case if you’ve been involved in a car wreck in the past. All of these factors combine to make your pain worse and harder for non-chiropractic doctors to properly treat.

Because of this, I’m running a special offer for those suffering from TMJ disorders. For 15 days only, $35 will get you all the services I normally charge new patients $220 for! What does this offer include? • An in-depth consultation about your health and well-being where I will listen…really listen…to the details of your case. • A complete neuromuscular examination of your TMJ, neck and spine.

• A full set of specialized x-rays to determine if a neck problem is contributing to your pain or symptoms… (NOTE: These would normally cost you at least $100). • A thorough analysis of your exam and your plan to being pain-free. The offer is only good until April 20. The appointment will not take long at all. You won’t be sitting in a waiting room all day either. Chiropractic very well could be the answer you’ve been looking for. Call today and we can get started with your consultation, exam and x-rays as soon as there’s an opening in the schedule.

(Just east of Yonge St., on the north side). Tell the receptionist you’d like to come in for the TMJ Evaluation before April 20, 2017. 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. Flare-ups will continue to happen if you don’t deal with your TMJ Disorder. Pain medications only mask the problem and should only be a last resort. Why not try the natural method of chiropractic first?

Youth BEAT De-Cluttering Your Room By Samantha Forani, Graduate of McMaster University

An agency of the Government of Ontario Un organisme du gouvernement de l’Ontario

Teens struggle to maintain a clean and tidy room these days. They tend to shrug their shoulders at a messy room and not see the issues that disorganization causes. This could be due to laziness, or perhaps being too busy and not making cleaning a priority on their list of things to do. Either way, maintaining a clean environment is more important than you may think and this article is going to explain why, and offer tips on how to keep things more organized. For one thing, having a clean room helps you to focus. If you are trying to study, but have to spend ten minutes searching your cluttered desk for a pen, you are losing valuable study time. As well, some studies have shown that clutter can lead to anger issues and frustration. Both of these can make it incredib ly hard to focus on anything for any length of time. Maintaining a clean environment is a massive time saver as well. If you are rushing out the door to catch your school bus, trying to find that second shoe could determine whether you make it or not.   It is easy to maintain a clean environment. Simply get in the hab it of putting your clothes away. Many people tend to just throw their clothes on the floor or on a chair. Taking the extra ten seconds to hang it up on a hanger or put it in the hamper (the real hamper, not the floor) can help you find those shoes and pens later on. As well, if you find yourself to be too busy to organize, just dedicating ten minutes a night, or perhaps an hour over the weekend to tidy up, will help you maintain the clean environment and avoid it becoming out of hand.   Now personally, I find one of my b iggest prob lems is wires and cords. We all have lamps, computers, printers, radios, etcetera, and these wires can really cause a mess. Using items such as zip ties can help you to organize the wires and create a more established and orderly work space. However, make sure to do this safely with the cords unplugged.   Deep down, most of us have a bit of a hoarding problem. We have that shirt we swear that we will wear but never do. That keepsake that we tell ourselves is important, b ut if it went missing we would be none the wiser. It is time to be tough and clear away the unnecessary! If you have not worn it or used it in the last year, get rid of it. This does not mean throw it away though. Donation centers are a great place to send your items that you no longer need. Maintaining a clean, clutterfree environment is very important and will help you more than you know in many aspects of your life.
