  • Road trip

    My driving habits are in keeping with my approach to life; impulsive, distracted and a host of near misses. I don’t set out with the intention of wreaking havoc on the highways and byways of our fair Commonwealth. It just seems that my forays out into the big, bad world are destined for a mishap of one kind or another.

  • Be a consumer who is aware

    We’ve all heard the old saying, “If something is too good to be true, it probably is.” This saying continues to hold true for consumers who are constantly bombarded with products claiming to be cure-alls in areas ranging from germ protection to quick and extreme weight loss.

  • Protect your home from termites

    Springtime brings warmer temperatures and more abundant rainfall, and it’s typically when many winged termites emerge inside homes and other structures. Termites swarm from their colony to disburse, fall to the ground, find mates and start new colonies in the soil.
    Through May, you might see swarms of winged termites, called swarmers, inside your home, signaling an infestation that can cause extensive and costly damage. Since swarmers are attracted to light, you often see them or their shed wings around windows, doors and light fixtures.
