Did you know?

--That shampooing your hair daily robs it of moisture, leads to “frizz,” and causes you to spend more money to buy products to bring back softness and shine.

--That your fingernails need to be moisturized to keep them from breaking easily. Massage them with baby oil a few times a week. It’s inexpensive and works.

--That smoking cigarettes slows down the rate at which your muscles produce protein. The strength lost leads to poor balance and fractures. Save money and quit.

--That you can use house wares purchased at yard sales, such as muffin tins, ice cream dishes or large mugs, to brighten your kitchen all spring and summer. Just plant some herb seeds or small flowers--not expensive, but looks good.

--That making sun tea not only saves time and energy, but also keeps the tea from having a strong taste.

--That buying in bulk saves time, money and trips to the store. The price of gas ought to make you think about this.

--That a small dark bathroom will brighten up if you add a medium sized fancy mirror and a pretty light fixture. Look for each in second-hand stores.

--That a pretty glass bowl filled with brightly covered buttons makes an attractive inexpensive centerpiece. Marbles will do the job too.

--That while working in the yard this spring and summer, you should always wear a good pair of gloves. They might just keep you from cuts and scratches, band aids or tetanus shots--all cost more than a pair of gloves.

--That in order to combat your stressful life, you need some “me” time. Set aside five minutes a day to sit down, put your feet up, close your eyes and completely relax. It’s the cheapest therapy you’ll ever find.

My thought for the month is: Happy Mother’s Day to all moms out there.
