Top Tips for Propane Grilling Safety

*Always keep the top open when lighting a grill until you are sure that it is lit.

*Never pour an accelerant such as lighter fluid or gasoline on the grill.

*Never use matches or lighters to check for leaks.

*When finished grilling, turn off the burner controls and close the cylinder valve.

*Make sure the grill is clean. When finished grilling and the grill is turned off but hot, clean off the grates. Once the grill cools, clean out the collection tray.

Ask Sam from the Winston-Salem Journal

Does anyone take used bicycles and fixes them up for needy children?

YES: *One good option: Contact Chris Culp, director of technology at Summit School, who teaches STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) at the school. One of the things they do is teach mechanical engineering through bicycle repair. His students, in the sixth through ninth grades, repair old bicycles that are then donated to worthy causes. Anything they can’t repair, they scrap and recycle the materials.  You can get in touch with Chris Culp at cculp@summitmail.org

*Phillip “Buck” Summers donates bikes to people in need through his Salem Bicycle Works ministry. http://www.journalnow.com/news/ask_sam/ask-sam-donating-used-bikes-to-the-needy/article_ea0cb732-ffae-5d02-879d-9ffa21301dc6.html

 

Got teenagers? Get a better night’s sleep.

Mothers getting inadequate or poor quality of sleep tend to be more lax and more often inconsistent when enforcing discipline with their adolescents, according to a study published in the Journal of Sleep Research.

Bottom line: Take better care of YOU, or how will you be able to take care of your teens?

Some tips: Don’t over-do it by drinking caffeine or exercising too close to bedtime.

Establishing a bedtime routine, and making sure the bedroom environment is conducive to sleep are some basics to help with a ‘better’ sleep.  https://wtop.com/parenting/2018/05/got-teenagers-study-says-be-sure-to-get-some-sleep/
