8 Simple Solutions For
Computer Problems . . .
Is your computer stuck and you don't know what to do? Wait! Before calling a computer expert or taking it to a repair shop, run through this checklist of quick fixes to save time and money:

1.  It won't turn on.  Look for a loose power cord. Check at the back of the computer, at the wall, and in the power strip. Make sure all connections are firmly in the socket.

2.  It loses the internet connection.  Unplug your modem's power cord and the wireless network router, if you have one. Wait a full minute. Plug them back in again. Give the devices time to restart. Try to open the internet again.

3.  It won't respond to keyboard or mouse clicks.  Check if the cords attached to your device are connected fully into the computer ports. With wireless devices, replace the battery.

4.  It takes too long to start up.  Confirm that your anti-virus software has been updated. When you know that you have the latest version, run a full system scan to see if you have any viruses that need to be removed.

5.  Your password won't work.  Look at your keyboard to see if the CAPS LOCK light is on. Many passwords are CaSe sensitive.

6.  The CD or DVD drive won't open.  Straighten a paper clip, slide it into the small hole near the door of the drive, and push gently. The door should open a little and you can slowly pull it open.

7.  One program continues to freeze up.  Try updating the software. You can usually find an option to update in the help menu. If not, visit the software publisher's website to see if new updates are available.

8.  The internet is too slow.  Check to see if someone else in the house is downloading or streaming something like a TV show or music. If they are, just know your internet speed will return when this ends.

Last Tip: Post this list on your refrigerator at home or in the break room at work. You may save someone else from pulling their hair out.

Do You Make This Embarrassing
Mistake When Cooking? . . .
Many people make mistakes in the kitchen that can compromise the flavor and quality of the food they prepare. Use this tips from top chefs to make the food you serve more delicious:

Don't test doneness of meat by slicing into it.  When you slice into the meat, you are releasing the juices along with much of the flavor.

Don't use water as an ingredient.  Most recipes can be improved by replacing water with something more flavorful. For example, you may want to try cooking rice with chicken broth to enhance the taste.

Don't buy vegetables because they look good.  Grocers often use tricks to make the vegetables look good such as waxes and preservatives. Instead, touch the stem, roots, or stalk. Find the ones that are bendable and not dried out.

Don't depend on the clock.  This is particularly true with meat or fish where the cut of meat can vary greatly. The stove, pan, or even weather can affect the time it takes for a dish to be properly done. Test using a meat thermometer. Most grocery or home goods stores sell meat thermometers. You'll also want a reference list of temperatures for different types of meat. Search for a "temperature guide" at

Spice Up Your Body . . .

Many cooking spices have benefits to the body beyond tasting good. Try adding these 3 healthy options to food:
  1. Peppermint is useful to soothe a sore throat. Its anti-inflammatory properties can even reduce coughs and congestion.
  2. Cumin contains a phyto-chemical that gives the spice its bright yellow color. Promising research is being done in the treatment of diabetes and cancer.
  3. Cayenne Pepper is known for its fiery taste but there is more to this spice than its pungent taste. They aid in digestion, cleanse the intestines, boost immunity kill parasites, and improve circulation.

Have A Laugh — "Adam, Eve and ???"

Eve questioned Adam after he spent a lot of time away from the garden with her. Convinced that he had been running around with another woman, she challenged him to admit it.

Adam responded, "What other woman could it be? You are the only one."

That night, he was awakened by Eve poking fingers into his chest.

"What are you doing?" Adam inquired.

She told him that she was counting ribs.

Real Estate Q & A . . .
Q.  When I put my home on the market in a few months, how will market value be established?

A.  Market value is simply what a buyer is willing to pay and a seller is willing to accept. This answer assumes that both parties are well informed about closed home sales that are "comparable" based on four important factors:

1.  Location.  Even within the same city, different neighborhoods can have completely different market values. Compare prices of recent sales in the same community.

2.  Age.  Comparable homes should be built within a couple of years of yours. Building codes and style trends vary with time and greatly affect value.

3.  Size of home and lot.  Buyers are sensitive to the price per square foot. Your home may be unique but buyers will compare the price per square foot with neighboring properties for both the home and the land.

4.  Property condition.  As the seller, you have many opportunities to increase the attractiveness of your home by getting it in tip-top condition and staging the rooms before placing the home on the market.
