“Be the change you want to see in the world.”Mahatma Gandhi quotes


How to Prepare Before a Black-out

If you have space in your refrigerator or freezer, consider filling plastic containers with water, leaving about an inch of space inside each one. (Remember, water expands as it freezes, so it is important to leave room in the container for the expanded water). Place the containers in the refrigerator and freezer. This chilled or frozen water will help keep food cold if the power goes out, by displacing air that can warm up quickly with water or ice that keeps cold for several hours without additional refrigeration.

If you use medication that requires refrigeration, most can be kept in a closed refrigerator for several hours without a problem. If unsure, check with your physician or pharmacist.

If you have an electric garage door opener, find out where the manual release lever is located and learn how to operate it.

Keep your car fuel tank at least half full because gas stations rely on electricity to power their pumps.

If you use a computer, keep files and operating systems backed up regularly. Consider buying extra batteries and a power converter if you use a laptop computer. A power converter allows most laptops (12 volts or less) to be operated from the cigarette lighter of a vehicle. Get a high quality surge protector for all of your computer equipment. If you use the computer a lot, such as for a home business, consider purchasing and installing an uninterruptible power supply (UPS).

Turn off electrical equipment you were using when the power went out.

Avoid opening the refrigerator and freezer.

Do not run a generator inside a home or garage.If you use a generator, connect the equipment you want to power directly to the outlets on the generator. Do not connect a generator to a home’s electrical system.

Use energy intensive appliances (dryers, washers, dishwashers) in early morning or late evening.

Turn off lights and appliances such as radio and TV when not in use.

Reduce wattage and number of bulbs whenever possible.

Minimize the use of hot water; use cold water where possible.

Iced Coffee Recipe

6 tbs ground coffee
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup caramel dessert syrup
METHOD 1,2, 3

Add the cinnamon before brewing to give this recipe spicy touch. You’ll need to stir well to blend in the caramel syrup.Mix the cinnamon into your loose ground coffee and then brew a pot of coffee by whatever method you prefer. Add the caramel syrup to the cinnamon-spiced coffee, and stir well until completely dissolved. Chill through in the fridge, and serve over ice cubes, with added milk or sugar to taste. The syrup makes this iced coffee pretty sweet as it is.
