Be More Considerate

I would like you to imagine the following:

You board the 530 afternoon train ,and your baby is sleeping on your shoulder. All the seats are filled. No one in the the train offers you a seat, so you have to carry your sleeping baby on your shoulder for the 45 minutes ride until you get to your stop.

This is true story. It happens everyday and everywhere. I saw this yesterday while I was coming home from work. The parent was a dad and his 2 year old son. I was standing myself, but I would have liked to give him my seat if I had seat. read more

5 way to protect your family and yourself from the sun

1. Wear Dark color clothing

Whenever you go out into the sun try to wear dark colored clothes. Dark colors provide more protection than light colors by preventing more UV rays from reaching your skin.

2. Wear a Wide Brim Hat

Wearing a wide brim hat protects you from the sun. Don’t wear baseball caps because they don’t protect your ears and neck. If you don’t like wearing a brim hat then a baseball cap is better than nothing.

3. Use Sunscreen
