What’s your favorite hour of the day? Do you enjoy spending time in the morning with a hot cup of coffee or tea enjoying some minutes of peace and quiet before your busy day begins? Do you like to take a long lunch so you can “people” watch at your local park? Or are you the night owl who likes to stay up to the wee hours of the night? Whatever your favorite hour of the day may be, make sure to set aside a little time to listen to Take Another 5 with Donna J. Jodhan!
For the busy mom, housewife or professional who needs a little inspiration in the kitchen.

Ten Ways to Winterize Your Home:
Spring might be right around the corner but this snippet of tips from “10 Ways to Winterize Your Home,” will help you be ready for when winter returns. Here’s just a few highlights to get you started.
- Clean your gutters.
- Drafty Windows.
- Door Barriers.
Cleaning your gutters is one of the most important things in regard to winterizing your home. If your gutters are not regularly cleaned then water can over flow and damage the foundation and walls behind the gutters of your home.
Check to see if you have drafts coming from your closed windows. It might be necessary to caulk them between the trim and frame.
Here’s a very simple and cost effective way to keep drafts from entering your home through exterior doors. Place a blanket or towel at the bottom of the door. It may not look very pretty but it will keep your energy costs down.
