Freeze the Grease, Save a Bundle. Keep Fats Out Of The Pipes

Freeze the Grease, Save a Bundle. Keep Fats Out Of The Pipes. Info here!

Simple Solution. Big Reward.

After big holiday meals, no one likes to be stuck doing the clean-up. But if you aren't careful with leftover gravy, pan drip-pings and sauces a grease-clogged drain could ruin your holiday and cost you a bundle.

When fats, oils and grease are poured down the drain, they stick to the inside of pipes causing messy sewer backups and expensive cleanup and repair.

The simple solution: Pour the grease into a can, freeze it, and toss the can into the trash.

Set your clocks ahead 1 hour Sunday 2AM

It's time to spring ahead!

Daylight saving time 2012 officially begins this Sunday, March 10 at 2:00AM (local time) -- remember to set your clocks ahead one hour to 3:00AM when you go to bed Saturday night.

It's also the perfect time to install a fresh battery in your smoke detectors.

About Daylight Saving Time
Daylight saving time (DST) — aka summer time is the practice of temporarily advancing clocks during the summertime so that afternoons have more daylight and mornings have less. Clocks are adjusted forward one hour near the start of spring and are adjusted backward in autumn.

Most of the United States and Canada observe DST beginning the second Sunday in March and ending the first Sunday in November -- almost two-thirds of the year.
