The importance of Martin Luther King Jr’s “I have a dream” speech was not only the power behind his words but the fact that his words brought greater attention to the Civil Rights Movement which had been going on for years. After delivering his famous remarks, congress speedily passed the Civil Rights Act which prohibited the discrimination of individuals based on sex, color or religion.
Today we remember the man who not only changed history but taught us that darkness cannot drive out darkness and only light and positivity can do that.

New Years Resolution Check- in
Let us embrace the now and reassess where we are with our New Years resolutions. Maybe it is time that we refocus and remember our goal(s) as the vision probably started to slip away. An easy form of staying on track is writing down our aspirations and knowing how to change our actions to ensure we meet our targets. Staying focused will guarantee that even though we are halfway done with this month, there is more than enough time to turn things around.
Remember taking small steps each day can result in long term successes.

Safely Heating Your Home
Did you know that the holiday season and colder weather combined can lead to more home fires at this time of year?
Knowing how to properly and safely heat your home is important, especially when staying warm feels better next to an open fireplace. The following are tips to remember when heating up your house this winter.
- If using a space heater, look for a model that shuts off automatically if the heater falls over. Place the heater on a level, hard and nonflammable surface in the home.
- Keep all potential sources of fuel like paper, clothing, bedding, curtains or rugs at least three feet away from space heaters, stoves, or fireplaces.
- Never use a cooking range or oven to heat your home and have chimneys, fireplaces, wood and coal stoves inspected and cleaned before another winter of use.
- Test batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
- Know your fireplace type. Never use wood in a gas only fireplace, it is extremely dangerous.
- Never put embers from a fireplace or fire pit in your trash can as this can cause a fire.

Holiday Baking Recipe

3 ingredients; 1 cup sugar, 1 cup chunky peanut butter and 1 egg. Mix in a large bowl and form into golf size balls. Place on lined baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Check on them at 8 minutes as baking time depends on your oven.
