Autumn is officially here! Leaves are changing colors and starting to fall, the days are getting shorter and the weather is cooling. Fall colors, cool evenings and pumpkins – it’s our favorite time of year. Pumpkin bread with cream cheese frosting and hot cup a tea is my fall treat! What’s yours?

The children are back in school and soon it will be Halloween and you’ll be preparing for "trick or treaters" …….And since "fright night" can be scary if you're not prepared, we have some great safety tips for you and your family for Halloween.

On a more serious subject, October is also Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Victims of domestic violence know what it’s like to live in fear. There is help and resources available to victims. The website for the National Collation Against Domestic Violence, www.ncadv.org, is a good place to start for information.

Stay safe and have a great month

There are, however, several simple and inexpensive upgrades that will improve safety and security and, as a bonus, improve comfort and energy efficiency.
