When Should One Have His/her Car Waxed (before Winter Perhaps)?

well I do not think it is a necessity to have it waxed before winter.The Most important thing to do to your car before winter is fill up your anti freeze and get new wiper blades and check the tread on your tires.I make sure my car is rinsed in the winter time to keep the salt off.

1. What are your plans for warming yourself on the cold winter nights to come?

a warm blanket, a heater and a man...so i have to find my man soon, winter is coming...oh no!!!

2. what are the key things i need for this winter?

Definitly some cute mittens and a cute winter coat. =]

3. How can I shed out my dogs winter coat.. its almost summer!?

Most dogs shed there winter coats themselves

4. Ladies are pantyhose with jeans comfortable?

Not really, but it keeps me warm on these cold winter morning. I only wear the combination when it's really cold, snowy and windy, like this morning. I do not like it, it's sort of itchy and scratchy.

5. Winter in Toronto...what to wear?

sneakers are good in the light snow boots for more. a good warm lined winter coat is good

6. Survey; who would like me to make them an outfit? just specifically tell me for which holiday or event?

gender: female age: 15 style: preppy/edgey/vintagaey, i know that makes no sense so ill just tell you my favorite stores: forever 21, american eagle, pacsun, heritage favorite color to wear: anything really but nothing to dark. im not a big yellow/orange fan though. i like wearing blue, green, neutrals, pink, purple, yeah whole outfit, preferably, but whatever works =] event: first day back in school from winter break thanks in advance if i am chosen

7. my cat just had kittens and it is cold outside what should i do?

my cat had kittens in february and its been thru a couple of snow storms. but they all survived. we kept them on the porch and provided a little shelter for them. we took a medium sized crate, flipped it over with the lid still on, and cut a hole, but make sure it doesnt hav any sharp edges. then place a nice sized pillow and a blanket at the bottom. we also fastened blankets around the outside of the crate for insulation and to block out the cold air from the door. or u can go purchase a plastic dog house, kind of like the igloo kind, and take the same precautions about blankets and pillows. my kittens survived thru the brutal winter so it should work for u.

8. Winter wonderland ?

Indoor place

9. Do I need to buy FEED seed or PLANTING seed for my food plots?

planting seed and get it planted now, its almost too late. sept. 15 is general cut off date. if your planting this late, plant brassicas, winter wheat, pumpkins, etc

10. How do I Regain my White Skin again?

You could try some makeup/powder...Whenever you are in the sun, even if it's just for a little while, wear a lot of sunscreen. Other than that, you will have to stay inside a lot and avoid the sun. Maybe just wait for winter, your tan will probably fade then.

11. Winter growing?

Wow! Terressa, nice job, at first I though you were just "a real twit gardener" doing his mind numbing 'cut and paste' but you actually wrote from experience. Kudo's. RScott

12. How was Napoleon's invasion of Russia supplied?

Napoleon's centre of gravity for his army was fast mobility and forced marches. Therefore, he enforced training for his troops to live and forage off the land. This worked within Europe where fertile lands made this practice easy. Organising his army into corps and regiments, he was able to ensure a fluidity and freedom of movement within the battlespace. This is more exceptional when you take into account that he faced enemies with the same technology (peer to peer).Russia was a different matter entirely. The invasion was planned during 1811 in Germany. He crossed into Russia in 1812. His estimation of the campaign was that, due to his 600,000 troops, the Russian Czar Alexander would immediately surrender. He estimated it would take a total of three weeks.The Russian generals knew they could not beat Napoleon head on. Already knowing his tactics and taking advantage of his need to bring Russia to heel quickly, to ensure the reinstatement of the effectiveness of his "continental system", Russia's troops kept withdrawing further into Russia. Only taking part in small skirmishes in order to ensure the French army never relaxed. Then Russia stated to commit to scorched earth, burning the winter's crops so the French could not utilise them. When Napoleon got to Moscow he had 300,000 troops (some historians say 200,000). The Russians burnt Moscow to deny Napoleon the ability to rest and recuperate there. Napoleon withdrew from Russia trying to avoid the scorched earth, however, the Russians attacked Napoleon's army forcing them to go back through the scorched earth areas. When Napoleon eventually got back to Germany he had a meagre 30,000 troops.Napoleons Russia campaign is not so much a lesson in failure of logistical systems more so a lesson that an army must always strive to eliminate any weakness within logistical systems as there is nothing that will control how an army can utilise a battlespace more

Tips to Stay Warm and Healthy This Winter
Tips to Stay Warm and Healthy This Winter
Older people have a reduced ability to control and regulate their body temperature, which means they are at greater risk of hypothermia, especially during winter.Winter also brings the 'flu season'. The flu virus can be especially dangerous for elderly people, pregnant women, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and very young children, as well as for people with underlying medical conditions.RetireAustralia's expert health professionals have a wide range of experience, skills and knowledge in relation to caring for the elderly. Care and Services Development Manager, Kerrie Storey, and Tarragal Manor Care Coordinator, Shirley Leech, offer the following tips to help you stay warm this winter:Make sure your home is warm enoughHypothermia occurs when your body temperature drops below 35°C and can cause serious problems without prompt medical attention. Be prepared for winter by making sure your home is heated to a sufficient temperature.• Ensure your main living area is heated to at least 21°C, with the rest of the home heated to at least 18°C• Check your home's thermostat and heating system to make sure it is fully working and does not require maintenance• Close all curtains and windows in your home at night time• Several layers of thin clothes will retain heat better than one thick layer, so layer-up in winter, especially when going outside• The coldest time of day is just before dawn, so go to sleep with extra blankets, and warm layers of clothing or nightwear• Contrary to popular belief, most body heat is not lost through the head, but through whatever part of your body is most exposed to cold air, so keep as much of the body covered as possibleEating food high in nutritional value means the body receives the vitamins, carbohydrates and fats it needs to be well-nourished and to recover from minor illnesses quicker. While it may seem like a good idea to eat larger amounts of carbohydrate-heavy food in winter in an attempt to keep warm, it is much healthier to maintain a well-balanced diet.• Include foods in your diet high in protein and fibre, with vitamins B,C, D and E, and low in sugars and fats• Eat regularly to help keep energy levels up during winter• Have at least one hot meal a day• Have regular hot drinks - tea/coffee/hot chocolateKeep in daily contact with elderly relatives, friends and neighboursElderly people can often be socially isolated, so can be alone for long periods of time with no one noticing if they become unwell. The simple act of checking up on an elderly person - ideally face-to-face - could save a life.• Call upon elderly loved ones or neighbours on a daily basis. If you are unable to do so, arrange for a family member, friend or neighbour to do it• Bring them a hot flask of tea, hot food, an extra blanket or clothes, an electric heater, a hot water bottle, or some wood for their fire, but most of all, simply check that they are warm and healthy• Check weather forecasts regularly to find out when cold weather is predicted, and make doubly sure your loved ones are warm and healthy during these times• Seek help from a medical professional or, in an emergency, call 000 if you believe someone is suffering from the effects of hypothermia• Regular contact with elderly loved ones or neighbours can benefit them in other ways, including promoting physical and psychological healthSeek assistance from government agencies for help with heating, food and clothing, if necessaryElectricity, gas, water and phone bills are expensive and they can be difficult to budget for as they can vary seasonally, there can be unexpected increases or additional charges, and it is often difficult to tell how much a bill will be before it arrives in the mail or inbox. It is vital that elderly people keep warm through the winter, and many are eligible for state government assistance to help pay their utility bills.• The elderly are more likely to be reluctant to use heating for economic reasons, so ensure this is not the case for an elderly loved one or neighbour• Explore ways to apply for a rebate or voucher• Visit the federal government's MoneySmart website for ways to save money on power bills without compromising physical or mental wellbeingHave regular medical check-ups and get your flu vaccinationLoss of nerve endings to the skin increases as we get older, meaning an elderly person's body has a decreased ability to register changes in temperature. Additionally, the elderly have a lower metabolic rate and less body fat, so generate and retain less heat. A regular visit to your doctor helps to maintain your overall health.• Blood pressure is generally higher in the winter, as cold temperatures cause blood vessels to narrow. It is useful to have regular blood pressure checks to ensure appropriate levels are being maintained• Influenza and many rhinoviruses replicate quicker and more effectively in colder weather. Older people are more vulnerable to the effects of these viruses as their immune systems are less adept at fighting them off. The flu vaccine is recommended for everyone from six months of age, but is available free under the National Immunisation Program for people who face a high risk from influenza and its complications (such as people with certain medical conditions and people over 65 years of age). Free pneumonia vaccinations are also available to older people under this program. Work with your doctor to make sure your vaccinations are up to date.Kerrie Storey, Care and Services Development Manager at RetireAustralia, has been a nurse for 30 years and earlier in her career has worked as a home nurse. During this time she remembers regularly visiting an elderly lady who was housebound, and once noticed that the house was very cold and the lady was very unwell: slurring and confused. After transfer to the local hospital it was determined that the lady was suffering form hypothermia. She improved following treatment, but if the nursing visit was not scheduled for that day the outcome could have been quite different.Shirley Leech, Care Coordinator at RetireAustralia, has been a nurse for 30 years, and was previously a clinical nurse specialist for the NSW Department of Health. Shirley hails from the North of England, where she was a Nurse Practitioner for 11 years, working in a climate in which winter temperatures can drop into minus figures for weeks at a time.RetireAustralia's retirement villages foster environments in which residents feel comfortable, secure and supported by community. Our dedicated and caring staff can assist with many of the issues discussed in this article.Find out more about how RetireAustralia helps residents live well:How can I safely transfer two comet goldfish from a indoor aquarium to an outdoor pond?I would wait till it warms up. The problem is, when the water temp is at about 60F you are supposed to be feeding them a wheat germ type of diet. At about 50F you are supposed to stop feeding them. What happens, their metabolism is slowing down and they can not digest protein as well, so it ends up sitting in their guts rotting. I would be afraid that it's too strong of a temp difference and might affect them in that respect. I bet your water temp is higher then you think it is. It will be closer to your actual room temperature. Can you get a 20-30 gallon rubbermaid tote and put them in that and throw a filter on it? That's how I used to over winter my goldies in the house until I got brave leaving them out for the winter. Granted, it's not pretty lol, but it works. And, it will only be for a few weeks. Maybe your friend can do that if you can not . .

Traditionally, it was celebrated as time of year after the second harvest which took place in September. It was when men turned to the hunt to stock up on food to hold their families through the long, cold winter months. It was not because the devil was harming anyone, but the earth was asleep and would not produce harvest for another year. In a few different cultures it was also believed that the veil between living and dead was thin and man could communicate with spirits who passed before. In Mexico, the Day of the Dead is still celebrated on November 2. There's actually a wealth of information online, but Wikipedia has the basics.

Infrared heaters are 98% efficient, unlike central heat which is only about 65% efficient. Also, beafing up the insulation will save alot. You can not do much about the walls, if you live in someone else's property, but little things like the rubber seals around and under the doors, and windows can be improved. They sell kits you can buy that puts a rubber neoprene seal around your window, and then cover it with a transparent plastic. It's not the most attractive fix, but it really works, and only costs 3 or 4 dollars per window. Wait to run your dryer until night, when its colder, and the heat emitted from the dryer, will aid in heating the house.Obviously, turn off all the lights and appliances when you leave the room, helps. You can also get a "timer thermostat" at wal-mart and most hardware stores that can replace your current wall thermostat. What it does is allows you to set your thermostat to stay off during the hours nobody is home (i.e. school, work, etc.) and kick back on about 30 minuttes prior to you getting home. They only cost about $30. hope this helps— — — — — —Why does it get colder during winter months when the sun its technically closer to the Earth during that period?First of all, the sun get closer to the earth during the Northern Hemisphere's winter, not the Southern Hemishpere's winter.The most southerly point of the United Kingdom is about 50 degrees north of the equator. If we add 23.5 degrees to that, we get 73.5 degrees. Thus at midday in midwinter, the sun is 73. 5 degrees from the vertical. This results in the intensity of heat energy being reduced by a factor of 1/cos(73.5) (which is about 0.28). This completely dwarfs the fact that the earth is slightly closer ot the sun than in June

How to Stop Acne in the Wintertime
How to Stop Acne in the Wintertime
The holiday season brings so many festivities, but the truth of the matter is that the cold weather can aggravate and increase pimples. Like any season, skin care routines need to change with the outdoor temperatures. And this includes acne treatments.The increase of sebum promotes pimples and flare-ups. But since the cool winter weather combined with the heated indoors jumpstarts dry skin, more dead skin cells and debris will clog pores. And as all acne sufferers know, clogged pores means more pimple breakouts. Below are some tips to help deal with the challenges wintertime can bring and how to stop acne. If under a healthcare provider's treatment, do discuss these simple steps with them beforehand. Cleanser:A good cleanser is the first step towards an acne treatment. Since some acne cleansers tend to dry out the skin, using that same product in the wintertime can make skin conditions worse. In fact, if after a wash skin feels tight, it's a sure bet the cleanser is too harsh. For example, cleansers packed with high percentages of salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide may really be irritating at this time. If possible, seek out a soap-free cleanser for sensitive and normal to dry skin. Look for soap-free ingredients which hydrate even the driest of skin. Moisturizer:Don't shy away from moisturizers thinking that it will cause breakouts. There are oil-free moisturizers out there that work well with acne-prone skin. There are many to choose from that are not greasy. Also look for noncomedogenic formulas which help keep pores clear. Also, ingredients like dimethicone and glycerin hydrate and calm the skin. Topical Acne Treatments:Many topical acne treatments out there may promote dry and flaky skin. Check with a skin care professional on simple ideas on the best ways to limit these formulas while still getting the most out of them. Some might suggest using the product every other day or a couple times a week during the winter season. While At Home:Keep temperatures inside the home not too warm to avoid dry skin. Also, drink plenty of water to keep skin hydrated.If drinking a room temperature glass of water on a cold winter day doesn't sound appealing, then go ahead and pour a cup of decaffeinated tea instead. Many have often heard that a humidifier running in the bedroom at night is a good idea. And it really is. This will hydrate skin and ward off extra dryness. If possible, place humidifiers in other parts of the home, too. Although sitting close to a warm fireplace may sound like a perfect spot to claim, keep some distance. Unfortunately, sitting too close to a crackling fire can clog pores. Some skin care professionals suggest opening up the windows to a home for about 5 to 10 first thing in the morning. The fresh air actually hydrates the stale heated air in the atmosphere. Depending on the temperature outside, bundling up may be in order for a bit. So every time the seasons change, so must those skin care routines to keep looking great.

The games were originally awarded to Denver, Colorado in the United States in 1970, but they withdrew in the wake of Colorado residents voting against it for environmental and cost reasons in November 1972. This led to the International Olympic Committee opening up the bids for the games again, eventually awarding them to Innsbruck in February 1973. The Austrian city, having hosted the Winter Olympics in 1964, was in the process of having the venues used for those Games before Denver's with clear cutting of the alpine skiing venues, lessening of the amount of cross-country skiing routes, upgrading the ski jumps, adding lighting in the indoor sports arena to accommodate color television, and the construction of a combination bobsleigh and luge track. After the 1976 Games, the venues have remained in use, hosting events in Nordic skiing and the sliding sports.

In a 1972 referendum, voters in Colorado rejected funding for the Olympics, and for the only time a city awarded the Olympics rejected them. Denver officially withdrew on 15 November, and the IOC then offered the Olympics to Whistler, British Columbia, Canada, but they too declined owing to a change of government following elections. Whistler would go on to be associated with neighbouring Vancouver's successful bid for the 2010 Winter Olympics. Sion was a runner-up also declined. Salt Lake City, Utah offered to host the Olympics, but the IOC, still reeling from the Denver rejection, declined and selected Innsbruck to host the 1976 Winter Olympics, which had hosted the 1964 Winter Olympics twelve years earlier, on 5 February 1973.

They are easy to wash on a wool setting in a washing machine with a liquid wool detergent. They dry quickly too. Researching the best thermals for men can be so confusing with multiple materials, features and prices. There are great products out there if only you could find them. Cutting through the complexity is what this guide is about. There are three main fabrics to choose from. Merino wool, synthetic, and blends. Each has benefits you might favor. Merino is warm, light and breathable. The antimicrobial quality of merino wool means that it suppresses bacteria and body odor. The thermal effect of this fabric makes it perfect for cold environments. Synthetic fabrics are hard wearing and effective at wicking moisture away from the body. This keeps you dry, regulates temperature and is comfortable. Some synthetic fabrics have ant-bacterial treatments added to them to prevent odors. There is another option. Blends of synthetic fibers and merino wool offer comfort and performance. These fabrics usually come at a premium price. How warm your base layer is, depends on the weight of the fabric used. Lightweight base layers of below 200g/m2 are likely to be more breathable but will provide lower insulating benefits. Best for mild weather and less severe conditions. Midweights are around 200g/m2 to 250g/m2 are best for a wide range of conditions. They offer a balance between warmth and breathability. When skiing or boarding you might find them a little warm if you are exerting yourself in milder weather. Fabrics with over 250g/m2 can be regarded as the heavyweight end of the base layer spectrum. The alternative to selecting one thickness of thermal underwear is to use layering. The best base layer for skiing combined with a mid layer provides warmth, breathability and the option to remove a layer if necessary. Add a hat for all-around warmth. Your investment in men's thermal underwear can be quite considerable for a quality item. You will, therefore, expect it to last. Be prepared for some differences in the durability of the products on offer. Merino is really soft and comfortable but it does wear and can develop small holes. Synthetics will last longer and you should expect several seasons of good performance, making them one of the best thermal underwear materials to choose from. The fabrics that blend wool and synthetics offer more durability than a wool only product. Zips, fit and style are things you might think are merely personal preferences for clothing that is generally not seen. You should think carefully about how they affect the comfort and performance of your base layer. A zip might provide more flexibility if you need to adapt to warmer conditions. Be careful that the zip does not irritate if it is going to be next to your skin. For a base layer to be effective as insulation it needs to be a snug fit. This also helps with wicking moisture away from the skin. If you want to be able to wear your base layer as an everyday casual shirt then the appearance might be more important to you. Be careful you do not sacrifice performance for style. You might regret it when the weather closes in on the mountain. Most thermal tops come with thermal long underwear and so the same features and benefits apply. Most people wear underwear under their long thermals and this does extend their life.
