Here are this week’s Life Pro Tips.
1. If you are buying a tent for 2 people get a 3 person tent. For 3 people, a 4 person tent and so on.
When they say a tent fits 3 people, they mean 3 people that are not storing gear in their tent and that sleep like they are in a coffin. Even a 4 person tent for 2 people is ideal.
2. If you see someone being interrupted in a conversation, acknowledge them.
Don’t let them be pushed to the side. A small gesture can mean a lot.
3. Understanding the difference between being able to afford something and having enough money for something is the key to financial happiness.
4. If you are planning on putting a family member in a nursing home, stop by the local EMS base first and see what they have to say about the facility.
If you are shopping around for a nursing home or assisted living facility for a family member do yourself a huge favor and stop by the local EMS base or Fire Dept with pizza or donuts and ask the paramedics what they think about the facility you are considering. EMS is constantly in and out of local nursing homes and is the only medical professionals who can share their first-hand experience about the quality of care you can expect from different facilities, many of which are extremely good at hiding horrific conditions from the public.
