Each year Americans throw away 25 trillion Styrofoam cups. This is enough to circle the earth 436 times. Imagine how much Styrofoam we could keep out of our environment if we all carried travel mugs to use when purchasing hot beverages.

Recipe: 1 16-ounce can whole-berry cranberry sauce /4 large (9- or 10-inch) spinach-flour tortillas or flat breads /mayonnaise /3/4 pound thinly sliced Monterey Jack or Swiss cheese (or your favorite) /3/4 pound thinly sliced smoked turkey (or optional meatless filling) /1/2 head green-leaf lettuce /toothpicks /red and yellow bell peppers /cocktail onions, for garnish. Spoon the cranberry sauce into a food processor and pulse it briefly. Then lay the tortillas or flat bread on a flat working surface and lightly spread them with mayonnaise. Top each tortilla with a layer each of cheese and turkey (or optional meatless filling). (Tip: When stacking ingredients, leave an inch margin along the top of the tortilla. Roll the bread toward that edge to keep the filling from falling out. Spread cranberry sauce on the turkey layers and cover them with lettuce. Snugly roll up the sandwiches, ending with the loose edges underneath. With a serrated knife, cut each roll-up into 1 1/4-inch-wide pinwheels and insert a toothpick to hold each one together. On a serving platter, arrange the pinwheels in rows to create a Christmas tree. Garnish with pepper-star ornaments (cut out with a small cookie cutter) and cocktail-onion.

Cold and Flu Season? 7 Things You Can Do To Stay Well...
Blog

Monday, 08 December 2014 13:41

This is the time of year for the of dos and don'ts of cold and flu etiquette. Here you go:

Dodge that kiss:Try to avoid it completely with a preemptive handshake (but then go wash your hands) Or frown like a person with a bad cold and say something like: “I'm coming down with something, gotta skip the usual greeting.”

Sick people should stay home: As much as you care for your loved ones and colleagues at work, do them all a favor and keep to yourself. If you can't take time off, at least stay hydrated. Pick up some cough drops. And keep a hefty supply of hand sanitizer nearby.

Offer the flu season fist-bump: When confronted by unwanted intimacy, this is a reasonable option. People will laugh, but then they'll probably try it themselves.

Sneeze into your elbow: You probably thought it was okay to sneeze into your hands? Wrong! And then you're going to shake someone’s hands?  Sneezing into your elbow drastically decreases the spewing action that can catapult germs into the air or onto your hand.

Wash your hands a lot: Hand washing is the best thing we can do to prevent the spread of colds and the flu. Wash your hands for 15 to 20 seconds every time you sneeze, every time you shake hands and before you sit down to eat.

Don't be shy about telling others you're sick: They'll be glad you did. Believe me, discretion has no place in the battle to fend off flu's and colds.

Take extra precautions when flying: Bring plenty of antibacterial wipes to clean off tray tables, armrests and seat belts, well as some travel-size hand sanitizer. Keep yourself hydrated, with water or juice.
