Ways to Recycle and Donate


We hear it all the time…Recycle, Recycle, Recycle.

Many of us do recycle and a lot of us don’t. I always have to ask just Why?

Here are simple ways for everyone to recycle:

Newspaper; use it for washing your windows, use it for your wood stove, give it to a friend or neighbor who may not have the money to buy one for themselves and ask them to pass it on to someone else.

Donate: all of us have items we no longer need such as furniture, books, clothing etc. Donating is a great way to recycle and best of all you can take a charitable tax deduction at tax time. Don’t throw it away, Donate it.

Yard Sale: sell your stuff and make some money. Again, you are recycling!

Printer Cartridges: call your local office store and ask them if they have a recycling center for printer cartridges or find a charity who will take them for a donation.  If you decide to give don’t forget the end of the year charitable tax deduction at tax time.

Cellphones and other mobile devices: call your wireless carrier and see if they recycle cellphones. I have found that most of them will recycle and give your cellphone to charitable cause such as domestic violence charities.

Have recycling bins for plastic, glass, metal and paper/cardboard. You will have to check with your city or town to see which items are recyclable. On the bottom of plastic containers there is a triangle symbol with a number inside it. Where I live we can only recycle 1 and 2’s. All of the other numbers are trash. For instance, if you have plastic containers with lids; reuse them for taking leftovers to work for lunch or use them for paper clips, coins, etc..

We can all do our part in recycling and reducing waste in the landfills. Recycle, Reuse and Reduce Waste!

I would love to hear from everyone who reads this blog on how they recycle, reuse and reduce waste.

Whose in the Basement?


It was the fall of 2007 and I had just gotten home from work and I noticed the door was open to the basement and the light was on. I thought maybe my husband left the door open and maybe he left the light on too. Not really sure.

My husband was working over time at work on this particular evening so I was home alone with the dog. The house was chilly and I had turned the heat on but I just couldn’t seem to warm up. So, I put on a sweatshirt and went about the evening activities.

At this time I was in the kitchen cooking dinner when out of no where there was some noise coming from the basement. It sounded like someone was hammering some wood. I picked up my cellphone and pressed 911 for when I needed to hit send. I went to the edge of the basement stairs and yelled down, Is there someone there? The hammering stopped. I was afraid to go down the stairs of what I might find but I went down and there was nothing that I could see.

I was a bit scared at this point and couldn’t wait for my husband to come home from work. I started thinking about all the incidents that had taken place before this one and it was definite that there was a ghost in the house.

I called my husband hoping he would answer his cellphone, thank goodness he answered. I said, when are you leaving to come home? He said, why? I said, honey its definite we have a ghost living in the house.  He said he would be home in a half hour. My husband arrived and we spoke about the incident and of course we talked about the other incidents that had taken place too. It was a sleepless night because the hammering started up around the time we both were about to fall asleep. I said, now do you believe me.
