Savings / Safety Tips for May 2017 from All Safety Products, Inc.

Hurricane Preparedness Week, May 7-13, 2017 The time to prepare for a hurricane is now!
There will be trouble. Expect it. Prepare for it.

According to NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), on average,  12 tropical storms will form over the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, or Gulf of  Mexico during the hurricane season which runs from June 1 to November 30 each year.

Six will become hurricanes.

In the Central Pacific Ocean, an average of three tropical storms, two of which become hurricanes, form or move over the area during the hurricane season, which  runs from June 1 to November 30 each year. During a typical 2-year period, the U.S. coastline is struck by an average of 3 hurricanes, one of which is classified as a major hurricane (winds of 111 mph or greater)

What damage does each category of hurricane cause?

Category 1 - 74-95 mph winds. Don't take a Cat 1 hurricane lightly. At this wind  speed, you may have roof and siding damage. Dead trees will fall; branches will  break. Power outages will last for several days. Prepare: Trim trees, service your generator, make sure you have water, food, and an up to date emergency kit.

Category 2 - 96-110 mph winds. Downed trees will block roads. Power can be out from days to weeks.

Category 3 - 111-129 mph winds. Expect devastation to buildings. You may lose your roof, gutters and siding. Power will almost certainly be out for at least two weeks. Water will be a problem. Fill bathtubs before the storm to use for flushing toilets and bathing.

Category 4 - 130-156 mph winds. You'll be evacuated if this storm heads your way.  Make plans before hurricane season for a place to stay for a minimum of two weeks. Your house will sustain major structural damage. There will be no water or power. Your pets cannot survive this storm. Make plans to take them with you.

Category 5 - 157 or higher mph winds.  Catastrophic. You will be evacuated. After the storm, you will have no place to live. Houses will be reduced to timber. Travel will be impossible for weeks. No water or power for weeks. Not only will you need a place to stay for weeks, you'll be filing an insurance claim for everything you own. Before the storm, use your smartphone to take a video of your home, room by  room. Your pets will not survive this storm. Make plans to take them with you.  Storm surge Surging waters can be a deadly affect of a hurricane. In Hurricane Katrina in 2005, it was the storm surge that broke levees in New Orleans and caused flooding six to 12 miles from the beach.

Avoid Taking Enteric Aspirin for heart benefits!

If you take aspirin for heart health, don't take enteric aspirin. A new study by Duke University found that aspirin coated with a material designed to avoid irritation in the stomach lining (enteric aspirin) did not reduce clotting at all. Modified-release type aspirin did the best job of protecting patients from clotting. Normal aspirin also did well. But the effects of enteric aspirin were undetectable.

Healthy Tip For May
Olive oil and heart health!

People swear by the health benefits of olive oil, but, according to Tufts Health  and Nutrition letter, there isn't much difference between oils. The director of the Tufts University cardiovascular nutrition laboratory, Alice H. Lichtenstein, says that research has not supported the idea that olive oil has unique properties for heart health.  Any non-tropical vegetable oil is a good nutritional choice over butter or animal fat, Lichtenstein says. Consumers don't have to buy  the more expensive olive oils or specialty oils. Regular oils such as soy, canola, and corn are lower priced and have a lower fat profile, which is the most important for health.

Using up Zucchini to Make Fried Zucchini Blossoms and Grilled
Zucchinis are a great example of a plant that can keep feeding you even in winter.
You can eat the orange-colored blossoms and the fruit. Zucchini also keeps well shredded in the freezer.

Fried Zucchini Blossoms (if you are able to pick yourself or purchase with blossoms)

  • Flour
  • Salt
  • Beer
  • Blossoms
Make a simple batter with flour, salt, and a 12oz beer.

Dredge the blossoms in the batter and fry them in some oil.

Grilled Zucchini

Slice the long way.

Place the slices on the grill and brush them with Italian dressing on each side.

They make an excellent side dish at any barbecue.

Freeze the rest! The rest of your zucchini you can throw in a food processor to  grate and then store two cups worth in freezer bags and pop them in the freezer  to use all year long. The grated zucchini is a great way to hide some extra veggies in your tomato sauce. You can also use it in a quiche, muffins or bread.
