Here are a few helpful hints:

But first...

After eight plus years and more than 100 columns, it’s time to pass the baton as this will be my last Helping Hands column. I would love for someone to continue it and I’ll surely help in any way I can. My email address is . So before I go, I’d like to say a special thank you to all who have sent tips and hints over the years… it’s the sharing that made this column fun to write.

See you around! –Carolyn Nason

 

Name your own price for travel has worked in the tourism industry, now you can use this same strategy for purchasing electronics. Check it out; the app is called Greentoe.

Here are a few great hints from this column’s great, great friend, Joan Sass:

So, how many passwords, do you have? It’s almost impossible to keep track of all of them. Well, here’s a really low-tech but great idea. Use an old (or new) recipe box and 3x5 index cards. Every time you sign up for a new website, jot down the vital information such as username, password, etc. Store them in alphabetical order by site name and you can retrieve them instantly.

Forget dry cleaning that cashmere sweater; use a bit of baby shampoo. It’ll keep your hand washables and that sweater super soft and save you money, too.

 

Finally, the folks at Handyman Club http://www.handymanclub.com/ suggest covering your pliers with plastic shrink tubing. It helps prevent pinching of any delicate parts (ouch) that you’re working with. This is a great site for the do-it-yourselfer. Fun for a cold, wintery day. Enjoy.

 

Wishing you all a healthy and happy 2014.

You can learn more about the various racing fleets by clicking here.  And the racing schedule (for all fleets) is available here.
