Countdown to the Big Game
It’s that time of year again, when two teams battle it out for the coveted Vince Lombardi Trophy. This year’s match-up will consist of returning champs Kansas City Chiefs and newly invigorated Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
History will be made Sunday night as the Chiefs quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, was only 6 years old the first time he saw Tom Brady play in the championship game. Now he will lead his team in a match that’s sure to be intense until the final second.
Not only does the game include some eye catching statistics, but this football holiday is also a record setter in snacks. Every year on this day more than 11 million pounds of potato chips are consumed, as well as 8 million pounds of guacamole. Topping out the top snack of the day is chicken wings, with an impressive 100 million pounds consumed in the US alone!
Who do you think will take the win? What’s your favorite Game Day Treat?
Tune in Sunday February 7th at 3:30 PM PST/PDT to watch the big game.

Winter Weekend Plans
The sunshine has mostly gone away and the leaves have all fallen from the trees, which can only mean that we are solidly in the coldest part of the year. But what to do if the snow is miles away or you’re snowed in? Well, we have some weekend plans for you that may check some things off your list.
- Something simple and free is to rearrange your living area or bedroom. Going through your shelves and drawers to clean and organize is not only satisfying but something we have all at times put aside for months or years.
- Pick up a hobby that won’t cost you any additional money to do, for instance…cooking. You already have to grocery shop, so why not add flare and try cooking something up that you’ve always wanted to taste.
- Binge watch a series that you self-noted you wanted to see. Make it exciting by having popcorn, snacks and your favorite beverage.
- Have a virtual party! Now that we have all become experts in digital celebrations, why not have another to start the weekend off right. Sharing laughter and smiles will make any day better and we can do it from the comfort and safety of our home.
Let us know some of your favorite winter weekend ideas!

Help Avoid Roof Leaks
How old is your roof and is it needing some care and updating? There are various signs of roof leaks, and things you can do to help avoid further damage.
Do you know if you have a small roof leak? There are various signs you can look for, both interior and exterior. Interior signs to look for include mold, dampness, or stains on ceilings or walls. You should also look for bubbles in the paint or water stains. Exterior signs can be safely checked from the ground using binoculars. Check for missing, torn, or cracked shingles or areas of gutter drooping or overflowing. If you do spot the signs of a roof leak, call a roofing specialist to identify the source of the leak and make repairs.
To prevent future leaks, it’s important to have your roof routinely inspected and maintained by a professional roofing contractor. Always make sure gutters are free of clutter and debris and flowing cleanly, and cut back any overhanging trees that could damage your roof in a storm.

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.
