Today's Brain Teaser . . .
I have no voice, yet I speak to you. I tell of all things in the world that people do. I have leaves, but I’m not a tree. I have a spine and hinges, but I’m not a man or a door. What am I?

8 Sleep Solutions For More Rest
Millions of people rely on medication to go to sleep each night. To help avoid reliance on sleeping pills and get the sleep your body requires, try these ideas for common sleeping problems:

If you have trouble going to sleep...
  • Exercise daily. Your body will be ready to rest at the end of the day. Some experts suggest light exercise as late as 7 p.m. three times a week; others say take 20 minutes to slow down (reading or meditating) before you lie down. See what works for you.
  • Try Dr. Andrew Weil’s “4-7-8” breathing exercise. Search for the exercise (including a video) at
  • Maintain a consistent schedule (same bedtime and wake-up time).
  • Keep the bedroom cool (between 60 to 67 degrees) and dark. Your body associates sleep with a drop in temperature.
  • Avoid large meals (especially high protein), alcohol and caffeine before bedtime.
  • Put down the smartphone. The glowing light stimulates your brain. Set rules about electronics before bed for your kids, too. An exception: There are Android and iPhone apps that may help you evaluate your sleep (Sleepbot) or provide lulling sounds (Sleep Pillow) to help you nod off. (Scroll down to “Fun Facts and Laughs” for related websites.)
If you wake up in the middle of the night...
  • After 15 minutes, get out of bed, go to another room and do something else (read, listen to music). Avoid your computer and TV and don’t watch the clock!
  • If worries keep you from falling asleep again, jot your concerns down in a notebook and clear your mind.
If you have chronic insomnia, which could be caused by disorders such as restless leg syndrome or sleep apnea, talk to your doctor.

Health Tip For Your Teeth . . .

Dr. Travis Stork from TV’s “The Doctors” says don’t brush your teeth immediately after drinking your morning cup of coffee. The acids in coffee soften enamel on your teeth, making it easier to brush it off. His tip: Wait 30 minutes before brushing after eating/drinking acidic foods.

3 Popular Words That Came From Sci-Fi . . .
  • Zero gravity (no force of gravity acting on a body) – Arthur C. Clarke used it in his 1951 novel, The Sands of Mars. He also used “zero g,” popularized in the 1960s space race.

  • Warp speed (faster than light) – Comes from “wearp,” meaning threads running through fabric. Fabric started to be used to describe space and its relationship to time. First known use in relation to speed was in a 1968 Star Trek script All Our Yesterdays.

  • Droid (a robot in human form) – First published in 1950s sci-fi stories. Went mainstream in the 1977 film Star Wars. Lucasfilms trademarked it, causing legal debate on using the term for Droid smartphones.

Real Estate Q & A . . .
Q.  What experts should I talk to if my home is about to go into foreclosure?
A. Avoid scammers, and talk to one or more of these professionals:
  • Your REALTOR® will help you review your options.
  • A Foreclosure Counselor will help you evaluate your current financial situation and serve as an advocate with your bank, free of charge.
  • A Tax Expert will advise you if you do a short sale or deed-in-lieu of foreclosure since forgiveness of debt may be considered taxable income.
  • A Credit Counselor can help you develop a plan to avoid future financial difficulty as well as help you repair your credit score.
  • An Attorney can help you if your lender has filed a foreclosure lawsuit.
     For more information on avoiding foreclosure, call and ask for my Free Consumer Report called “Options To Avoid Foreclosure.” I’ll be glad to send a copy right over to you.
