When I am occupied, I can provide protection. But when I am empty, I cannot move on my own and protect no one. And I’m often ignored for months at a time. What am I?

 Foods That Combat Pollution


     Pollution can have a detrimental impact on our health and well-being, causing breathing problems like asthma, skin issues such as psoriasis, a weakened immune system, and high blood pressure. Pollution exposure has even been linked to cancer and heart disease.


     While we can’t always escape exposure to pollutants, we may be able to help reduce its effects. Foods rich in antioxidants may help prevent and even reverse cell damage caused by pollutants. Try including these in your diet:


  • Green tea: this wonderful tea contains a chemical called polyphenol, which has been shown to counteract the effects of environmental pollutants like pesticides and smoke. Aim for 2-3 cups per day.
  • Fruits and vegetables: kiwis, citrus, spinach, berries, broccoli, kale, and tomatoes are all packed with Vitamin C, which is great for boosting immunity, reducing the rate of cardiovascular disease, and improving asthma. Aim for 1 ½ to 2 cups of fruit and 2 to 3 cups of vegetables per day.
  • Fish oil: fatty fish — like mackerel and salmon — contain Omega-3 fatty acids which are not only great for your brain, lung, and heart health, but also combat the effects of air pollution. Aim for 2-3 servings of fatty fish a week.
  • High-fiber foods: cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, kale, brussels sprouts, bok choy, and cabbage are high in the compound sulforaphane which supports the liver in detoxing harmful pollutants from your body. The fiber in these vegetables helps to limit the body’s absorption of toxins and helps to expel them, too. Aim for 2 cups a day.

     Wherever possible, aim to buy organic produce to limit exposure to synthetic chemicals like herbicides or fertilizer.


     Wash your produce with a fruit and vegetable wash before eating to rinse off lingering pesticides, as well as reducing bacteria picked up throughout the produce processing cycle. You can make your own rinse with 1 part white vinegar and 4 parts water.

Why Pay To Monitor Credit?


     First, what exactly IS credit monitoring? Monitoring your credit simply means keeping track of changes on your credit report (like new lines of credit or changes in balances). The three main credit agencies TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax monitor your credit, and you can get your credit report once per year for free from each of them at: However, if you want to check your report more than once per year, regular monitoring of your credit can help you discover problems earlier to prevent identity theft and work on improving your credit score. Websites like or are free to join and they can alert you to changes in your score, when a new line of credit has been opened, and may provide tips to help you improve your credit score.


     So why you would pay to monitor your credit when you can access your credit report for free? Credit monitoring companies that charge monthly fees — like Identity Guard, IdentityIQ, or LifeLock, will usually provide more current information on any changes on your report, send you alerts by text or email when changes occur, and some companies may even investigate suspicious activity for you. They also usually don’t sell your data, like some of the free companies may. If privacy is important to you and you want to actively monitor your report, it might be worth it to pay for a service. Also, check with your credit card company–some offer free credit monitoring as a benefit.

Kids And Cyberbullies


     Cyberbullying – bullying online or through social media apps —is becoming more prevalent. Here are some signs to watch out for and what to do if you think it’s happening with your kid(s): 


  • Look for warning signs such as: an increase in device/social media use, hiding device use in your presence, emotional responses after using a device (sadness, anger), avoidance of social situations that they once enjoyed, abrupt changes to their social media profiles.

  • Tips to combat cyberbullying: keep device use limited to common areas of the home, talk with your kids about bullying and what it may look like on social media, provide support so they know they can come to you, don’t overreact or remove their device and instead talk through possible solutions to empower them, document the bullying by taking screenshots of the bullying and keeping a record of what happened, inform school administrators if bullying is coming from classmates, and if there is a potential threat to safety, take the documentation to law enforcement. Lastly, provide reassurance and support to your child while you navigate this challenge together.

Top AI Websites

AI (artificial intelligence) is the latest technology trend that is supposed to help minimize time we spend on tasks, research, and even writing! Check out: – use an interactive AI model that answers questions, admits when it’s wrong, and has boundaries for inappropriate requests. Ask questions like, “when do I need a new hot water tank” or “summarize the book XYZ.” – automatically enhances images, improving their resolution, tone, and texture, no matter how old the image is. Also can generate AI art. – This website allows you to take a photo of an item and translate it into a local language where you are travelling. Take a photo of bread and ask the translator to give you the French word next time you’re in France!

How To Write A Great
Thank-You Note


      Whether you’re sending an email follow-up for a job interview or thanking a relative for a Christmas gift, there’s an art to the thank-you note. It shows that you’ve gone out of your way to show appreciation. In an age where communication is instantaneous, it can be difficult to know when to send an email, text, or make the effort to write a handwritten card, and what to say. Here are some general guidelines:


  • Emails: it’s most appropriate to send an email in a professional scenario —such as sending a note following a job interview —to remind them of your interest and to thank the interviewer for their time. It shows you are interested and that you follow through. However, if you attended a formal event, it may be worth making the extra effort to thank the hosts in writing.
  • Text messages: sending a text is for informal situations, like thanking friends and family for visiting or for suggestions they’ve provided. Also, a text when you’re using a gift, maybe with a photo attached, is a great way to show the sender that you appreciate their gift and are getting use out of it (think a picture of the baby in the new clothes Grandma sent).
  • Writing a handwritten note: thank-you cards these days are more commonly sent as a follow-up to a wedding; to thank friends and family for their thoughtful gifts; to the host of a charity event or dinner; after someone has written a letter of recommendation on your behalf; to thank friends for hosting a dinner party; or to mark a major life-change or anniversary.
  • What to say in your note: if writing a handwritten note, bear in mind it doesn’t need to be an essay but do be specific and mail it promptly. Tell them what you are thanking them for — if it was for a gift, mention said gift and how you plan to use it — how it made you feel, and how much you appreciate their efforts. If marking a major life change, your note can offer support and encouragement, while at the same time acknowledging the transition or change they are experiencing. In an age when we’re all busy, the gesture of sending a note shows kindness and appreciation for your relationship.

Real Estate Corner…


Q: What are the top three things I need to do to sell my home?


A: Here’s a list of important things you’ll need to do:


  • Set a realistic price.  Homes that are over-priced can linger on the market for months, while homes that are priced correctly usually sell faster and for the most money possible.  Look at recent listings in your area and their actual sales prices, and visit homes for sale in the neighborhood before deciding on a price. 
  • Get your home ready to show.  Clear out clutter, freshen paint, and clean up landscaping.  Remember buyers notice everything!
  • Review the promotional plan of a Home Marketing Expert.  An experienced REALTOR® can help you sell quickly by advertising your home in more ways than simply creating a MLS description.  Plus, they can help you avoid costly mistakes on contracts and disclosures required by law to sell real estate.
