Savings / Safety Tips for October 2019 from All Safety Products, Inc.Plan and practice your escape from fire!
More than a third of heads of households estimated they would have at least six minutes to escape
Not so, according to The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). The time is often much less and survival may depend on your decision to get out of the building immediately.
NFPA suggests the following when making an escape plan for your family:
* Have two ways out of every room in your house.
* Establish a place outside for members of the family to meet.
* Make sure windows open easily for a possible escape route.
* Practice and establish that children can unlock doors and can open doors and windows with ease.
* Teach children how to escape if you can't help. Teach them not to delay.
* Test smoke alarms regularly and change the batteries at least once a year..
What to do for something in the eye
Once in a while, everyone gets something in their eye: a bit of makeup, a grain of sand, or an eyelash.
When that happens, never rub your eye. Immediately remove contact lenses. The natural reaction of the eye is to flood with tears, which usually washes out debris.
If the eye debris doesn't flood out with tears, fill a small container with clean water or saline, according to WebMD. Drench your eye in the water and open and close it several times.
An eye wash station is sometimes available at workplaces. Always use it, if available.
When to get help for eyes
See an emergency physician immediately if anything has pierced the eye, the eye bleeds, or the eye won't close.
Harsh chemicals in the eye are also an emergency. Flush immediately with water for 15 minutes then secure a paper cup over the eye and get help.
Delicious Recipe: Seasonal favorite: It's time for pumpkin pancakes
October means pumpkins and way too much pumpkin-spiced everything, but for many it also means pumpkin pancakes. You might have your favorite recipe for the seasonal breakfast feast, but there are lots of cooks with new ideas out there.
Blogger Taylor Stinson recommends a five-ingredient protein pancake using vanilla protein powder, rather than flour. She tops her creation with shredded coconut, almond butter, pumpkin seeds, chopped nuts, and, of course, maple syrup. See her recipe at https://www.thegirlonbloor.com.
For traditional recipes, here are some tips to make your favorite recipe fluffy and yummy:
* Most cooks recommend using real buttermilk and not milk for pancakes.
* You could use your pumpkin as a fresh ingredient, but it might be too watery. Canned pumpkin is usually more consistent.
* Avoid canned pumpkin pie mix, since it has added water, sugar and spices. It can throw the recipe off, especially with the spice mixture.
Here is a typical pumpkin pancake recipe, from Martha Stewart:
1 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, preferably freshly grated
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
Pinch of ground cloves
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons melted butter
6 tablespoons pumpkin puree
1. Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and spices in a bowl.
2. In a separate bowl, stir together milk, pumpkin puree, butter, and egg. Fold mixture into dry ingredients.
3. Melt some butter in a skillet over medium heat; pour in 1/4 cup batter for each pancake.
4. Cook pancakes about 3 minutes per side; serve with butter and syrup.
