JOKE OF THE WEEK:

Q: What's a good holiday tip?
A: Avoid catching snowflakes with your tongue until all the birds have gone south for the winter.

 

GO GREEN THIS HOLIDAY SEASON:
Follow these tips to reduce your carbon footprint over the holidays!
-  Take the reusable bags with you when you go shopping
- Forego gift-wrapping or wrap in a material that can be recycled, like brown paper- most wrapping paper can't be recycled!
- Avoid hand cramps! Send eCards instead of traditional ones.
- Include rechargeable batteries with electronics
- Choose LED lights and use a timer, turning lights on only when people are there to see them
