Check on your neighbors.
Some are alone, widowed, homebound by illness, or for any number of reasons. Ask if they need something, in terms of food, water or just a friendly voice.
Most likely they will resist, so do not insist.

Your Eyes: Hints for Looking Better.
Dark Circles
: the blood vessels show through the extremely delicate skin, creating
unsightly bluish circles. As with crow's feet, the best bet is to use a retinoid regu-
-larly by building collagen so the veins underneath aren't as noticeable. For a
quick fix, use an eye cream containing caffeine; which will constrict dilated blood
vessels.
Conceal: they are going to show through; the best solution is a peachy-toned concealer which will counteract the blue-gray hues. Try: Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer $42, amazingcosmetics.com .
For especially dark circles, start with an orangey color corrector instead by Maybelline New York Master Color Correcting Camo Pen in Apricot $10 at drug-
-stores. Top that with an illuminating concealer that matches your skin tone.

Self-Care Moves: these feel-good practices not only improve your mood but also
have big body payoffs. Aromatherapy: sniffing certain essential oils; available at
health food stores, may help lift your mood. Yoga: even basic, gentle restorative
yoga can help reduce inflammation in the body, help strengthen memory. Massage: regular rubdowns have been shown to relieve headache pain, ease anxiety, assist with stress and pain-related insomnia. Hot bath: 20 min. in a warm tub can help relax your muscles and mind. Add 2 cups of Epsom salt (drugstore) may help ease muscle tension and pain, and it is safe to try.

Detox Your Vagina ? Uhh, No.
Yoni teas, made with a variety of herbs and flavors, like pineapple and kiwi, are
touted as helping cleanse the vagina and making it smell nice. Select spas also use
these concoctions to create a steam infusion that supposedly goes in the vaginal
canal to reap the same benefits. The short answer is No. You don't need to sip
yoni teas or do steams to detox your vagina.
Your vagina has natural lubricants to keep it clean. Simply rinsing the outer
genital area with water and regular bathing should be all you need to keep it fresh.
More important, inserting herbs or hot liquid or even exposing your genitals to
steam for a prolonged period could irritate or burn the sensitive tissues or disrupt
the healthy flora that reside in your vagina. Just let your V be.

Got Doggy Odors ? Get Bio Zapp:
Bio Zapp is a spray that is a complete odor neutralizer. It does not cover up or
mask the odor. It removes the odor so that you don't smell it but more importantly
your doggy won't smell it either. It is best to clean the area first, if that is carpet; use Tech Stain Remover. Once the stain is removed, spray the area with Bio Zapp.
Spray the area thoroughly down to the pad and concrete. If you have tile, just mop
to clean. Spray the tile and surrounding grout lines with Bio Zapp. If you have
wood floors, covered with area rugs…be aware: if you clean the rug, you also
need to clean the wood underneath. If the wood floor stays wet too long, the
floor will develop a white stain and also can turn black…that black stain is hard
to remove. Any odor can be neutralized in upholstery, concrete and cabinetry;
musty, smoke or any funky odor…Just spray with Bio Zapp.

Car Payments Late: Enter the Re-Po Man.
A rising number of Americans are unable to make the monthly payments on their
car or truck loans and are in danger of having their vehicles repossessed, according
to data released from the New York Federal Reserve.
There are 6.3 Million Americans who are 90 days late-or more-on their auto loan payments, an increase of about 400,000 from a year ago. The delinquency rate on autos has been steadily rising since 2011, a red flag at a time when the un-
-employment rate has been falling. When someone gets so far behind on their pay-
-ments, they typically end up losing their vehicle.
The rise in auto loan delinquencies is a reminder that Millions are still struggling to make ends meet. Many of the people who can't pay their car loans have bad credit
scores of under 620 on an 800-point scale. They don't have many options to get
money to buy a new or used car and often end up getting a subprime auto loan
that comes with an interest rate of 15 to 20%. (It happens more than we know.)
Some have started to compare what's happening in the auto loan market to the home mortgage crisis that helped trigger the financial crisis of 2008-009. Many
of the same issues are back: Lenders appear to have lowered their standards to
give people car loans who probably should not qualify.
(It is a vicious cycle; no car, no job, no way to get out of debt for many struggling families.)
