STOP THAT BARKING

Many dogs left alone all day get lonely, bored and restless. Many

find relief in barking. Some respond noisily to any and all activity.

But, nothing is as annoying as incessant barking - even for dog

lovers. If your dog is a yapper or a yowler, please consider some of

these bark-abatement ideas to keep the noise down in your area.

Your neighbors will thank you!

• Training. Always the first recommendation for any behavioral

problem! Help is as close as the Yellow Pages. Training not only

helps your dog, you’ll be surprised how much it helps you, too.

You may get some insight into why your dog barks so much or

what it is trying to communicate.

• Citronella collars. A humane alternative to the electric-shock,

anti-barking collar and costs about the same. Available on the

web and in pet stores.

• Confinement. Sometimes simply bringing an outspoken dog

indoors or confining it to a crate can cut down on the disturbance

to neighbors.

• For inside dogs, reduce stimulus. Close drapes to help muffle

street noise or leave a radio on to mask it.

• Companionship. Dogs are pack animals; they need

companionship - a cat, bird or another dog. Consider a mid-day

visit from a pet-sitting service or drop your pooch off at a friend’s

place or a day-care facility once or twice a week.

Keep in mind that dogs who bark from loneliness or boredom, may not

do it when you are home. Meanwhile, your neighbors may be getting

serenaded while you are away.

TEENAGE JOB SEEKERS

Glazed Apple

Cream Pie

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/4 cup butter

2 tablespoons cornstarch

2 tablespoons milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tart apples - peeled, cored and sliced

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 (15 ounce) package pastry for double-crust pie

1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar

1 tablespoon milk

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon butter, softened

DIRECTIONS:

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup cream and 1/4 cup butter. Heat until butter is

melted, stirring occasionally. In a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch, 2 tablespoons milk and vanilla; stir into saucepan. Cook

until thickened, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and set aside to cool slightly.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). In a medium bowl, combine the apples, flour and cinnamon. Mix well. Line a 9

inch pie pan with pie dough. Pour thickened filling mixture into pastry-lined pie pan. Arrange apple mixture evenly over filling.

Top with second crust, seal and flute the edges. Cut slits in top crust. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until crust is golden brown and

apples are tender. Cool for at least 30 minutes.

In small bowl, combine confectioners’ sugar, 1 tablespoon milk, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla and 1 tablespoon softened butter. Blend until

smooth; pour evenly over warm pie. Refrigerate for at least 1 1/2 hours before serving (longer is better). Source: allrecipes.com

JUST FOR TODAY By Dear Abby

This is one of the more popular requested columns from the famous advice columnist Dear Abby. Read

on: “Today is the day we have an opportunity to discard destructive old habits for healthy new ones

and with that in mind, I will share Dear Abby’s often-requested list of New Year’s Resolutions, which

were adapted by my late mother, Pauline Phillips, from the original credo of Al-Anon:

Just for today

I will live through this day only. I will

not brood about yesterday or obsess

about tomorrow. I will not set far-reaching

goals or try to overcome all of my

problems at once. I know that I can

do something for 24 hours that would

overwhelm me if I had to keep it up for

a lifetime.

Just for today

I will be happy. I will not dwell on

thoughts that depress me. If my mind

fills with clouds, I will chase them away

and fill it with sunshine.

Just for today

I will refrain from improving anybody

but myself.

Just for today

I will accept what is. I will face reality. I

will correct those things that I can correct

and accept those I cannot.

Just for today

I will improve my mind. I will read something

that requires effort, thought and concentration.

I will not be a mental loafer.

Just for today

I will make a conscious effort to be agreeable. I

will be kind and courteous to those who cross

my path and I’ll not speak ill of others. I will

improve my appearance, speak softly and not

interrupt when someone else is talking.

Just for today

I will gather the courage to do what is right and

take responsibility for my own actions.

Just for today

I will do something positive to improve my

health. If I’m a smoker, I’ll quit. If I am overweight,

I will eat healthfully - if only just for today.

And not only that, I will get off the couch

and take a brisk walk, even if it’s only around

the block.

LIGHT JARS

Do you get that let down feeling in January once all

the decorations come down? My favorite part of the

holiday season is the lights and my husband teases

that YEAR ROUND I would have the inside of our

house looking like the Griswald’s outdoors if he let

me. (He is probably right, lol.)

So my compromise is that I get Mason jars, mayo or

pickle jars or even some vases and I use the battery

operated string lights to make “normal” decorations.

In one, along with the lights, I have the glass beads

you can get at the dollar store in many colors; in

another I have seashells we got in Galveston. I am

sure you can find something that would match your

own home and style to place in these.

So if you are like me and just need that pick-me-up

of some bright twinkling lights once the decorations

are all down, make one or more of these and have

them year round! - By Michelle Gray, KPC Editor
