Make Your Home Safer
Top 5 Home Hazards:
Our homes are supposed to be our safe havens - and most of the time they are. But every year, more than 33 million people are injured by consumer products in their "safe havens." Here are the "Top Five Hidden Home Hazards," according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC):
  1. Magnets. As the number of children's products containing magnets has increased, so have injuries. When these tiny magnets fall out of toys, children are tempted to swallow them. Though a single magnet may not cause a tragedy, two or more magnets (or a magnet and any other metal item) are cause for alarm. They can attract to one another through the intestinal wall and pinch or twist the intestines - causing holes, blockages, infections, even death.
  2. Recalled products. The CPSC can get recalled items off retailers' shelves, but once a product is inside your home, you have to be on the lookout. Pay attention to the recall announcements and check for those items in your home.
  3. Tip-overs. It can be fatal for a child to pull over a large item like a television or a bookcase. Make sure such items are stable in their positions, and monitor children who go near them.
  4. Windows and coverings. Curtain and blind cords are a choking hazard and should always be kept out of the reach of children. Don't rely on window screens to prevent children from falling out. Screens are designed to keep bugs out, not kids in.
  5. Pool and spa drains. Pool drain suction can be strong enough to hold an adult under water. However, most incidents involve children. Missing or broken drain covers are often the reason for these accidents. For pool owners: Install a safety vacuum release system that detects drain blockage and alters the pool pump or water circulation to prevent an accident. For parents and guardians: Check the drains, or at least determine where they are, before allowing children to use the pool.

How To Train Your Brain
If you want to keep your brain fit, it isn't enough just to read a master tome like Ulysses. Researchers believe that the most effective way to keep your brain in top shape is to do activities that pull you out of routines and expose your senses to new things. Here are simple three brain exercises: Brush your teeth with the other hand. If you're right-handed, brush your teeth with your left. It may take a little more time, but it pulls your brain out of its normal routine and forces it to use the other side of its circuits. Place clocks and pictures upside down for a day. This forces you to reorient and reinterpret familiar objects, which makes the brain use spatial networks it hasn't used in a long time. Close your eyes. As you make your way around the house, close your eyes and force your brain to exercise the connections between your sense of touch and spatial memory.

Testimonials & About Me

My photo
Frisco, Texas, United States
In 2002, Brad Lynch began energetically consulting families in finding the right mortgage plan for their needs. In the beginning years, he was trained by a mentor who led by example, and this example was the epitome of integrity. Brad learned in the beginning by his mentor that many prospects may not consciously see what good intentions he has for them, do to the “wrap” many have caused w/in this industry, but always do what is right for the customer and in the end it will payoff. Integrity coupled with an energetic nature to nurture relationships, Brad has created clients for life. Through these clients for life, referrals have become the lifeblood of his business.
