Get Smart About Your Heart . . .
People often treat their cars better than they do their bodies. That's what the president of the American Heart Association (AHA) says about the public's awareness of cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death around the world.

The mobile cell phone! The Motorola employee made the first call on April 3, 1973, on the streets of NYC to his rival at Bell Labs. The DynaTAC phone was the size of a brick and weighed 2 lbs!

Real Estate Q & A . . .

Q.  What do I need to know about lead paint in older homes?

A.  If you're planning to buy, rent or renovate a home built before 1978, you need to read the Renovate Right brochure produced by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency:

In it you'll learn that lead-based paint, which is dangerous to adults but especially to children under six years of age, was used in more than 38 million homes until it was banned from residential use in 1978.

You have the option to hire a certified risk assessor or inspector to check for lead-based paint (call the National Lead Information Center for help finding one). Or you can assume that it's present if your home was built prior to 1978 and follow the practices in the brochure.

Federal law now requires that contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb painted surfaces in these homes be EPA Lead-Safe Certified. You can use the search tool on the EPA web site to find a certified renovator near you or call your local homebuilders' association for a list of certified remodelers. After the job is complete, be sure to save the records so you can pass them on if you decide to sell your home.
