Do you usually walk out of the bathroom after "going" and leave the toilet seat up? What items do you keep near your toilet? There are two really good reasons why you should always close the lid of your toilet seat.
1. Closing the lid every time will prevent water from evaporating in your toilet.
2. Closing the lid before you flush (especially after #2) can prevent the spread of harmful bacteria in the air. When you flush and you see the water swirl it creates a "toilet plume". A toilet plume happens when the swirling water mixes with small waste particles which then become aerosolized (imagine very small particles of feces escaping the toilet and landing on everything surrounding your toilet).
If you are prone to leaving the seat up or are sick of hearing the toilet seat slam when others are closing the lid, then you have to check out these slow close lids. We installed slow close lids on all of our toilets to prevent that annoying toilet slam noise from the kids. All you have to do is gently touch the toilet lid and it slowly closes on its own.
Warning --> If you flush with your toilet seat up it would be a good idea to keep your toothbrush covered or as far away from the toilet as possible. The germs and bacteria can fly up from the flushing toilet and find its way to your toothbrush, nothing like brushing your teeth with poop particles...ewww!

Do you use Walgreens Pharmacy for you and/or your families’ prescriptions? If so you will definitely want to hear about the latest news with the Walgreens and Express Script contract and how it will affect you. An unsuccessful negotiation between Walgreens and Express Scripts has caused Walgreens to no longer be a part of the Express Scripts’ pharmacy provider network as of January 1, 2012. This is bad news for those of you who find going to Walgreens very convenient and comfortable. Without this contract most of you will have to drive further to get your prescriptions, you may not find a location that offers 24 hour service and to top it off your costs aren’t going to go down (stated by Express Scripts themselves). This is also bad news for our military families. A contract for the health and prescription drug program for our military men and women, Tricare, was also negotiated unsuccessfully.
Since there were so many Express Scripts patients using Walgreens pharmacies for years, Walgreens has stepped up and has come out with its own plan to minimize the inconvenience and disruption that could have been caused by the non-renewal of contract. Walgreens cares about their patients and wants to help make it possible for you to still use their pharmacy.
First check with your local Walgreens Pharmacist to see if you are affected by this contract change (you can also check the back of your insurance cards for the name Express Script. If you are impacted this is what Walgreens is offering you. They are offering a special discount on annual memberships for its Walgreens Prescription Savings Club. This special is only during the month of January; you can join for only $5 or $10 for a family. This will help you save on more than 8,000 brand name and all generic medications. They offer more than 400 generics with a three-month supply for less than $1 a week. This is an amazing deal for those of you who are affected. The normal membership fees are $20 or $35 for a family, which equals huge savings!
When it comes down to business, Express Scripts really wants customers to use their own mail order pharmacy business instead of using local community pharmacies. You shouldn’t have to give up on your local pharmacy or Walgreens and lose your favorite pharmacist you have been going to for years. So hurry and take advantage of this great offer!

There are a lot of homes available for sale in our area right now and it’s been fun working with my new clients to find what they want. I’ve been a realtor for 10 years and it’s nice that I’ve got so many young, fresh clients to take on (seemingly endless) house tours so they can get exactly what they want. The good thing about the market the way it is right now is that there is so much inventory it’s easy to find the perfect house and have plenty left over to get the furniture you want and home security systems California and all kinds of extras that you may not be able to afford otherwise. I love having so many options to show clients and it’s actually been a good time for me as a buyer’s agent: people are still buying houses no matter what the scope of the market is and that’s just something a good realtor realizes. Don’t worry about what the news says, just do your thing!
