Did you know that having a working smoke alarms cuts the risk of you or a member of your family dying in a home fire by half?
I know that’s a bit of a strong way to start a Monday morning, but it’s very true! October is Fire Safety Month and while I have been preparing for several fire safety posts, I have been learning some facts that are very disturbing.
For instance, nine out of ten homes have smoke alarms installed. That’s great right? But millions of those installed smoke alarms don’t even work at all. Missing or dead batteries are the main causes of non-working smoke alarms.

Halloween is a wonderful holiday filled with some really warm and funny memories for me.
I grew up just outside of Pittsburgh so when it came to Trick-or-Treating, it was always cold! I remember my mom always trying to get heavy winter jackets over or under our costumes to make sure we were warm and competing against our friends to see just how many houses we could get to in those very short two hours.
Back then (not all that long ago mind you!), you would go to a neighbor’s home and there would be fresh, homemade treats, a lot of laughter and smiles and of course many camera flashes going off to save the moment.
Help…the Stink Bug invasion won’t stop! UGH!
They’re all over the news and all over people’s homes throughout the eastern half of the country. While the Mid-Atlantic States like Pennsylvania and Maryland seem to be the hardest hit right now, many other areas are being affected by these smelly little critters.
