HORSES, DONKEYS, & MULES
by Patricia L. Cook Horses, donkeys, and mules are similar, related animals. The biggest diﬀerences are in their chromosomes. (Now, if you want to study the genetics, research it elsewhere, not in Tidbits!) • Horses have 64 chromosomes; donkeys have 62. When mated they produce mules or hinnies that have 63 chromosomes. A mule is the oﬀspring of a mare (female horse) and a jack (male donkey). The oﬀspring from male horses (stallion) and female donkeys (jinnets) are called hinnies. Most people just lump mules and hinnies together and call them mules. (We’ll call them mules in most of this article.) • Mules are hybrids, each having one donkey and one horse parent. They can be male or female but they can’t reproduce because of the odd number of chromosomes; they are sterile (99.9% sterile). Very rarely, 1 in 1 million, female mules have given birth but no male mule has ever been known to sire a little one. Male mules actually need to be gelded or castrated so they are more sociable, mild mannered and, hence, safer for their handlers. • Other names used for mules and hinnies are: Johns or Jacks (male) and Mollies or Jennys (female). turn the page for more!

HORSES, DONKEYS & MULES (continued): Have you heard the term “longears?” It is an endearing term used for donkeys and mules. Horses have small ears, donkeys and mules have long ones. Mules’ ears are not quite as long as donkeys. A hinny’s ears are shorter and much wider than donkey ears. The tails of mules, donkeys and horses are diﬀerent. Donkey tails are similar to cow tails with a tuft of hair on the end. They are not as long as the tails of horses and mules. Tails of horses and mules have long thin hair that goes all the way to the end of their tails. When a horse is scared or “spooked,” it will run but a donkey will either stand and defend its ground (fight) or just simply “freeze.” So, what does a mule do? It can choose either one since it is part horse and part donkey! Donkeys and mules are considered more intelligent than horses. When they “freeze” it is part of their “well-developed instinct for self-preservation.” Considered stubborn, most experts think they are just thinking over the situation at hand and are not likely to put themselves in danger. Horses allow themselves to be worked until they are exhausted; mules won’t. According to ruralheritage.com, “a mule will trust its own judgement before it trusts yours.” Mules, as with most hybrids, were bred to join the desirable qualities of donkeys and horses. They get their strength and stamina from horses and their patience, sure-footed gate and intelligence from donkeys. Even when working regularly mules and donkeys live longer than horses. A farm mule can work hard for 18 years, where a horse is only good for about 15. Mules that are well cared for and do lighter work have been known to live for 30-40 years.

DEAR PAW’S CORNER: I read your column on volunteering at pet shelters and for other organizations. All great, but many shelters don’t let anyone under 16, and sometimes 18, volunteer to work with the pets. However, for kids who want to help pets in some way, there are still some great ways to do so! They can organize or join fundraisers at their school or church, and donate the funds to local shelters or pet-welfare organizations. There are many different ways to raise money, and that’s what most animal-care groups need: cash! -- Cheering Volunteer Mom in Virginia DEAR MOM: Great idea! Raising funds can be as easy as participating in a walk for animal welfare (like the Wiggle Waggle Walk in Pasadena, Calif.). Or kids can think of things to make and sell for a fundraising drive, like the two grade-schoolers in Kingston, N.Y.,
who raised money for the Ulster County SPCA through a church project. “They were given $10 and asked to use it to make more money for a charity. Tyler made labor intensive bracelets and donated $75, and Caelin made dog biscuits and donated $450,” Marie Shultis of the Ulster County SPCA said. The shelter is looking at starting a youth entrepreneurial group to help other kids learn about fundraising, and plans to develop workshops for teen volunteers to teach young people about caring for animals. So, even if a local shelter doesn’t have a lot of accessible events or volunteer opportunities, kids can come up with great ideas to help them anyway. Parents, educators, church-group leaders and other youth leaders can help foster the spirit of volunteering and provide guidance.
Welcome to Goose Tips! Vacation season is fast approaching for many of you......Dining out while on vacation should not be a budget buster. Three meals a day can add up quickly for families on vacation and you shouldn’t have to eat fast food for every meal to afford to go out. What can you do to save money? Here are my best tips to cut down on the cost of dining out. When planning your much needed vacation, take the time to investigate what type of restaurants are near your destination. Be sure to sign up at the restaurants’ sites to receive savings offers and coupons thru email: Prior to departing, check your email for coupons and print them. While you are at the computer, be sure to print directions from your hotel to the restaurant. Be sure to use credit card rewards or MyPoints to offset dining out. Scout out your hotel for discounted dining coupons. Many times hotels will have coupons and discounts for nearby restaurants. A good place to look is in the entry way where all of the local attractions have their brochures. Restaurant.com is a great place to pick up dining discounts to use while on vacation. Take a few minutes to visit the www.restaurant. com site and type in the zip code or search for the city you will be visiting. Thanks to YOU we are celebrating 5 years, now serving beer and wine, Wild Game Every Friday....The Wounded Goose, we have a lot of competition, but our food doesn’t!

HORSES, DONKEYS & MULES (continued): Most donkeys and mules are used for work on farms and trail rides, either packing humans or cargo. They are considered “beasts of burden.” The term, defined as “animals used for transporting loads or doing other heavy work,” is also used for elephants and oxen. Mules are used by the U.S. Army to carry supplies in Afghanistan and other places where the terrain is diﬃcult. There are 185 breeds of donkeys, with about 41 million in the world today. Used in many places around the world, China has the most with about 11 million. George Washington is considered to be the “Father of the American Mule.” In 1785 he was gifted a large Spanish jack from King Carlos III of Spain. The next year, 1786, he received a Maltese jack and two jennets from French General Lafayette. He had his prize mares (horses) bred to his new jacks and became the first mule breeder in America. Other famous Americans who “connected” with mules were: Buﬀalo Bill Cody, Mark Twain, Harry Truman, Ken Curtis and Ronald Reagan. Ken Curtis played Festus on the long-running television western, Gunsmoke. Not only were mules used in western ranch settings, they were used to help populate the western United States. Mules could pull loaded wagons 30 miles (48.3 km) per day as compared to wagons pulled by horses or oxen that could only average about five miles (8 km) per day. The discovery of borax in Death Valley, California in the early 1890’s, lead to a major job for mules in the west. You’ve probably heard of 20 Mule Team® Borax. Sodium tetraborate is the scientific name for borax.

Simpson’s ex-wife, and her friend Ron Goldman are stabbed to death outside Nicole’s California home. With overwhelming evidence against Simpson, including his blood at the murder scene, Brown’s and Goldman’s hair and blood in his car and bloody shoeprints found at the scene, Simpson became the chief suspect. He later was tried and acquitted. (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

• You might be surprised to learn that the hamburger didn’t originate in the United States. In fact, it was early Turkic people called the Tatars who first came up with the idea. When they had low-quality beef, they discovered that shredding it and patting it back together improved the flavor and texture. • If for some reason you have a hankering to see the world’s biggest tire, you’ll need to head to Detroit (fittingly, I suppose). Located near the Detroit Metro Airport, the 80-foot Uniroyal tire weighs in at a whopping 12 tons. This attraction was created for the 1964 World’s Fair in New York, where it served not only as an advertisement for the Uniroyal brand, but also as a Ferris wheel for the entertainment of attendees. In 1998, the company created the world’s largest nail -- measuring 11 feet long and weighing 250 pounds -- and used it to pierce the giant tire. It was another advertising stunt, of course; this time to promote Uniroyal’s puncture-resistant tire. • If you’re like the average American, you will eat between 25 and 30 pounds of apples this year. • Some researchers believe that those who drink large quantities of coffee on a daily basis are selfmedicating for depression. • There is a species of frog found in Australia with an odd method of reproduction. It lays eggs like other frogs, but this particular frog keeps the eggs in its stomach, hatching them internally. When the baby frogs are fully developed, they emerge into the world via the adult frog’s mouth. • Thought for the Day: “Sometimes the most ordinary things could be made extraordinary, simply by doing them with the right people.” -Elizabeth Green (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

HORSES, DONKEYS & MULES (continued): Borax is a “naturally occurring substance produced by the repeated evaporation of seasonal lakes.” It looks like cotton balls! Nothing is added to borax for household cleaning and laundry use. The product is washed, dried and boxed. Borax is also used in other ways, such as in the glass industry. The removal and hauling of borax from Death Valley was not an easy chore. The nearest railroad junction for getting the product out of the valley to consumers was in Mojave, California, 165 miles (266 km) away. Mules were an important part of the solution for bringing borax to market. The idea of using 20-mule teams started with William Tell Coleman’s borax company. (By the way, the 20-mle teams were actually 18 mules and 2 horses!) Two teams were hitched together to form a 20-mule team that was 100 feet (30.5 m) long. The teams pulled two 16foot (4.9 m) long wagons loaded with borax and a 1,200 gallon (4542.5 l) water tank. The total weight pulled by each 20-mule team was over 36 tons (32659 kg). Between 1883 and 1889, more than 20 million pounds (9,071,846 kg) of borax was hauled out of Death Valley by the 20-mule teams. The mule teams were eventually replaced by a rail spur. The “20-Mule Team” symbol, still seen on boxes of detergent and other places, was first used in 1891 and registered as a trademark in 1894. The Twenty Mule Team Museum in Boron, California, has been opened since 1984. The museum oﬀers interesting information about the borax industry and the famous mule teams.

Famous Canadians RICK MORANIS Frederick Alan Moranis was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on April 18, 1953. Known as Rick, he is mostly known for the nerdy characters he has played, usually wearing large glasses, and his short (5 ft. 4 in. or 1.625 m) stature. • Moranis started his career as a high school student in Toronto with a part-time job as a radio engineer, eventually becoming a popular deejay. • His big break came when he landed a hit part on the popular Second City TV (SCTV) show in 1980. A requirement for actors on the show was that they had to include “identifiable Canadian content” in each episode. Moranis and his cohort, Dave Thomas, created two silly dimwitted brothers, Bob and Doug MacKenzie, who were a pair of “beer-guzzling, back-bacon-chewing hosers.” • Thomas and Moranis played the brothers on the weekly show called The Great White North and have been credited with instilling the Canadian “eh” at the end of sentences, getting many extra laughs from their fellow Canadians and the North American fans to the south. The series spawned a feature film, Strange Brew, in 1983.
Answer on Page 8
• After leaving Second City TV, Moranis was in two Ghostbusters movies, Little Shop of Horrors, and his very memorable role as the eccentric inventor, Wayne Szalinski, in Honey I Shrunk the Kids in 1989, and Honey I Blew Up the Kid in 1992. Later, in 1997, he played Szalinski again in the direct-to-video movie, Honey We Shrunk Ourselves. • Some other films that Moranis has been a part of are: Little Giants, in 1994: Big Bully, in 1995; and he played Barney Rubble in The Flintstones, in 1994.

He moved from his transplanted home in Hollywood back to Canada in 1997 to raise his two children. Moranis intended for his “retirement” to only last a few years, but realized that he didn’t miss the pressure of life in Hollywood.

• Moranis still does occasional voice work on movies, such as Brother Bear. On acting, he has said, “I’m really not an actor. I’m a guy who comes out of comedy, and my impetus was always to rewrite the line to make it funnier, not to try to make somebody’s precious words work.” He liked the ability to change lines like he did in his earlier movies. • A few extra notes about Moranis: He was featured on the cover of the first issue of Disney Adventures magazine in 1990; he was the only cast member on SCTV who didn’t come from the Second City theatre; he had a letter published in Mad Magazine, Issue #120, July 1968, titled, “Don Martin Looks at Frogs;” and, he released a comedy/country album in September 2005, titled The Agoraphobic Cowboy. • In 2013, eight years after The Agoraphobic Cowboy, Moranis released another musical comedy album. My Mother’s Brisket & Other Love Songs, brings music and laughter derived from his Jewish upbringing. Included songs are “Oy, The Mistakes I Made” and “I Can’t Help It, I Just Like Christmas.” • This funny man loves to talk about his fellow Canadians: “We stand on guard at red lights, even when there is no traﬃc. We wait for clear, green governing lights to signal our turn and lead us on. Then we tuck our heads down, under wooly toques and worn-out scarves, one eye barely open, squinting headlong into the harsh prairie wind, cautiously, quietly, demurely Canadian.”

Online at www.lovemytidbits.com HUMMINGBIRDS The tiniest birds in the world, hummingbirds, have brains that are 4.2% of their body weight, the largest proportionally to all creatures in the bird kingdom. Another amazing fact: their breast muscles are actually 30% of their body weight! • Hummingbirds, frequently called “hummers” from the sound their wings make, belong to the avian, or bird, family named Trochilidae. Swifts, another fascinating bird species, are their closest relatives.

• Hummers are only found in North, South and Central America (the “new” world). They are found from Alaska and Canada in the north to Tierra del Fuego, the southernmost tip of South America. They reside in deserts below sea level and the Andes Mountains at elevations up to 16,000 feet (4877 m)! • There are more than 340 species of hummingbirds. Most are in South America. Seventeen species occur in the United States with only three known to be in Canada. Most hummers in the U.S. are near the Mexican border.

Ecuador claims the most hummingbirds. There are 132 species found in the small country that is about the size of Colorado.
The Ruby-throated hummingbird is the most common species of hummingbird that breeds in the eastern half of North America. The most widely-distributed hummingbird in all of North America is actually the Rufous. The Rufous has been observed in every province and state except Quebec, Prince Edward Island and Hawaii.
• While the Rufous winters in Mexico and Panama, Ruby-throated birds winter in Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean Islands, with some remaining in the Gulf states and the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

For Advertising Call (740) 446-4543 HUMMINGBIRDS (continued): • Hummingbirds are capable of going into torpor, an unusual, very deep sleep-like state where metabolic functions slow to a minimum and an extremely low body temperature is maintained. When torpor happens for longer periods of time, it is called hibernation. Hummingbirds can go into a state of torpor any time when food conditions and temperature spur the need. • Hummingbirds have the highest metabolism of any animal on earth, excluding insects. With heart rates of hummingbirds as high as 1,260 beats per minute, they have a need to consume lots of nectar. In fact, they consume more than their weight in nectar daily! Now hummingbirds only weigh .07-.7 ounces (220 grams). Most animals, including humans, would be extremely obese if this kind of eating occurred! • When observing hummingbirds, most people think they use their long beaks to drink in the nectar from flowers. Actually, they lap it up with their tongues! They also eat small insects. • Swifts and hummingbirds are sometimes called “avian helicopters.” They are capable of making power strokes on up and down movements of their wings. They can beat their tiny wings from 60-200 times per second. • Hummingbirds have tremendous agility in flight. They are the only vertebrates with the capability of sustained hovering, and can even fly upside down and backwards! • Migration is a phenomenal feat that many birds accomplish. Some hummingbirds travel as far as 2,000 miles (3,200 km), including a remarkable 500 mile (800 km) nonstop over the Gulf of Mexico – and they don’t have jet engines! Q: I began collecting beer cans a number of years ago when I found a Denver Beer can at an area dump site. I discovered that it was a product of the Tivoli Brewery, which no longer exists. That inspired me to see how many other beer cans I could ﬁnd from defunct breweries, and I currently have more than 200. How can I determine current values, and is there a club for collectors you can recommend? -- Steve, via email A: Beer can collecting has really come into its own since the 1970s. Even though most cans sell at ﬂea markets for about a dollar a can, there are always exceptions. A Krueger Cream Ale from Newark can command more than $200. Other brands popular with collectors include Gettelman Beer of Milwaukee; Country Club Beer, St. Joseph, Mo.; E&B Special Beer, Ekhardt and Becker Brewing of Detroit; and most cone tops, such as General Pulaski of the Pulaski Brewery of Hammonton, N.J. To determine values, one of the better beer can referencing sites is www.ebeercans.com. I also recommend you contact the Brewery Collectibles of America (BCCA), 747 Merus Court, Fenton, MO 63026; http://bcca.com. Q: I have a copy of Time magazine from 1951, the year in review issue. Gen. Douglas MacArthur is on its cover, and it is in fairly good condition. How much do you think it is worth? -- Don, Gulfport, Miss. A: Special “time capsule” issues are always especially interesting, and 1951 was an incredible year: Harry Truman was president; Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were executed for treason; color TV was introduced; and “African Queen” was one of the top ﬁlms of the year. I checked with several collectors, who seem to agree that your magazine is worth about $15 -- assuming it is in good condition. Q: There were several ﬁshermen in my family, and I recently found a Heddon tackle box with two trays in a storage shed. Is it worth keeping? -- Bill, Stigler, Okla. A: Heddon made several tackle boxes, which now range in price from $20 or $30 to several hundred dollars. Since you did not supply a photo of your box, that is about as much information as I can provide you. Write to Larry Cox in care of KFWS, P.O.

Deported Veterans Can Return in Cofﬁn Hundreds, perhaps thousands of foreign-born U.S. military veterans who have been convicted of crimes and served their time in prison have been deported, despite living legally in the U.S. since childhood. They are dumped in the country of their birth -- a country they may have no memory of, where a language they may not understand is spoken. What kept those service members from ﬁling for American citizenship when they could have, ﬁve years after getting a green card? One theme stands out: Many were told by recruiters and at boot camp that U.S. citizenship was automatic when they were honorably discharged from the military. Others came back from service overseas in no shape, physically or mentally, to deal with bureaucracy. Where do we draw the line with deporting veterans? Immigrant lawbreakers who are not veterans are routinely deported for serious crimes. Does being a veteran and putting your life on the line for this country count for anything after you pay your debt to society? For a U.S. citizen, you do your time and you go free. And what of the crimes these deportee veterans commit? Should a line be drawn to distinguish between nonviolent and violent crimes? Felonies can include any number of crimes, some more serious than others. Some misdemeanors can be interpreted as aggravated felonies when it comes to immigration and deportation. Here’s the kicker: Deported veterans can’t come back -- until they’re dead. If they were discharged under honorable conditions, they qualify for burial in a veterans cemetery and the government will kick in $300 to have the body returned. Additionally, veterans still qualify for beneﬁts, but they can’t get here to claim them. To learn more, go online and research “veterans deported.” Look up immigration-law expert Margaret Stock, a retired military police lieutenant colonel, and read some of the stories she tells. Freddy Groves regrets that he cannot personally answer reader questions, but will incorporate them into his column whenever possible. Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Restless Leg Syndrome No Laughing Matter DEAR DR. ROACH: Why do people snicker when I tell them I have RLS? They wouldn’t laugh if they knew the amount of sleep deprivation I have endured during the 20 years it took to correctly diagnose it. I think if it hadn’t been for Sinemet (levodopa and carbidopa), a Parkinson’s drug, I would have gone mad long ago. Has anyone discovered what causes it? -- G.S.G. ANSWER: Restless leg syndrome causes an urge to move the legs (and sometimes arms), which is worse at nighttime and is relieved by movement. It is usually accompanied by unpleasant sensations in the legs. When accompanied by sleep deprivation, as yours has been, it is also called periodic limb movement disorder. The cause is known only in a minority of cases. About 40 percent of cases seem to run in families, and several genetic factors have been identiﬁed. Iron deﬁciency sometimes is associated with RLS, and replacement of the iron can improve symptoms. Moderate exercise, leg massage and heat (say, a warm bath before bed) are some nondrug ways of improving symptoms. Levodopa/carbidopa is an effective treatment; pramipexole (Mirapex) and ropinirole (Requip) also are effective for many people. There are other alternatives as well. An expert in the condition, usually a neurologist, is essential for severe cases. I think the name “restless leg syndrome” may be part of the reason why people don’t take this condition as seriously as it deserves. After all, legs are supposed to move, and being “restless” doesn’t sound so bad -- but as you know, it’s a lot more than that. For this reason, the new name,
Willis-Ekbom disease, is preferred by some. Great information about this condition is available at RLS.org. The booklet on restless leg syndrome and nighttime cramps offers more tips. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Roach -- No. 306W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. DEAR DR. ROACH: I am looking into buying an infrared sauna. My research indicates that infrared is good for arthritis, Type 2 diabetes, detox, cholesterol, weight loss, relieving muscle pain, helping kill cancer cells, etc. I have arthritis, and my boyfriend has diabetes. My question is: Are these claims true? Can an infrared sauna help me to become a healthier person? I would use it daily or three to four times a week. Do you feel it is worth the purchase? -- D.O. ANSWER: An infrared sauna uses light waves to heat up the body. People have been using traditional saunas for centuries, and many swear by their beneﬁts. There is good evidence that saunas (and infrared saunas in particular) can reduce pain and stiffness from some kinds of arthritis. Unfortunately, there isn’t evidence to support it. I doubt that saunas help with “detox,” weight loss or killing cancer cells. I would caution your boyfriend with diabetes, because some people with diabetes are less sensitive to heat and could be burned without knowing it. Dr. Roach regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but will incorporate them in the column whenever possible. Readers may email questions to ToYourGoodHealth@med. cornell.edu.

A: I think it’s great that you’re looking at ways to limit your family’s exposure to certain cleaning chemicals. While you might not be able to replace every cleaning product in your home, there are alternatives to commercial products ... and they’re probably in your cupboard right now. Here are ﬁve you should have on hand at all times: • Lemon: A natural disinfectant that also imparts a pleasant scent. It’s no coincidence that many commercial products are lemon-scented. • Vinegar: More than just a good disinfectant, vinegar is effective against mold. It breaks up grease, and can be effective against some stains. • Baking soda: In addition to being a good deodorant for the fridge, baking soda can be used to gently scour surfaces without scratching. • Cornstarch: A gentle cleaning product that can be used to polish some furniture, clean windows, and even shampoo carpets. • Salt: When you need more scrubbing power than soda or starch, and surface scratches aren’t a concern, salt is an excellent substitute for scouring powders. In addition to these fairly benign cleaners, there are a few products that you should have that boost cleaning options while having a limited impact on the environment. These should be stored out of the reach of children and pets, and you should follow package instructions: • Soap: Look for unscented soap that doesn’t contain petroleum distillates. Soap also demolishes grease, and creates a slick surface that makes it easier to wash food particles and bacteria from dishes. • Borax: The commercial name for sodium borate, this chemical cleans and disinfects surfaces, including wallpaper and painted walls. It’s even used to attract and poison pests like roaches. • Washing soda: Also known as SAL soda, this is a mineral called sodium carbonate. It’s used for household cleaning and is often an ingredient in laundry detergents and coffee pot descaling formulas. • Citrus solvent: A more powerful cleaning solution, it can clean paintbrushes and help dissolve oil and grease. • Isopropyl alcohol: Another common and affordable disinfectant straight out of your ﬁrst-aid kit. How do you safely use these ingredients? There are more ways than I have room to describe. The back of the packages for many of these products -like Borax, washing soda, citrus solvent and baking soda -- contain tips and instructions on safe use. Additionally, you can ﬁnd a trove of information on the Web. Eartheasy has a page dedicated to nontoxic cleaning along with ways to use the above ingredients. Real Simple’s website has a page with 66 different cleaning tips. HOME TIP: Clean and deodorize your garbage disposal by throwing in a few ice cubes and
lemon or lime rinds, and running the disposal until clear.

GALLIA COUNTY MEDICAL TRANSPORTATION Will Social Security be Your Only Income?
CALL ROB @ 740-972-0895
Many seniors have only Social Security for income when they retire: 22 percent of married couples and 47 percent of unmarried people have no additional income. Maybe it’s a matter of not having saved over the years, or maybe it’s having lost everything in recent years due to layoffs and unemployment. But if you have ﬁve more years until retirement, there are steps you can take now to make living on only Social Security a bit easier. • Clear off your debts, especially your credit cards and vehicle. If possible, pay off your home or at least get the balance down. Keep your credit score high in case you need a loan for a large purchase -- the interest rate will be lower. • If you own your home, look at long-term maintenance. If you’ll need a new roof in the next ﬁve years, do it before you retire. The same goes for big-ticket items like appliances, central air conditioning and furnace. • If you’re willing to move, investigate states that don’t tax Social Security income and/or have a lower cost of living. Assume that retirement won’t mean actual retiring. Be prepared to take a part-time job somewhere. You’ll be able to earn a bit before it cuts into your Social Security beneﬁt at the rate of one dollar for every two you make. The Social Security Administration no longer sends out the annual statement of earnings, but you can get a ballpark estimate online of what your future income will be. You can open a MyAccount, or you can use one of the calculators to estimate. Before you make the jump and quit work, do a test experiment for at least six months. Spend only the amount you would receive under Social Security. Create a strict budget and stay with it. Can you do it? It will be better to know sooner rather than later.
