Around the house
* When going on vacation, remember to stop delivery of the newspapers; have someone pick up your mail; set timers for lights, radios and TVs; lock all doors and windows and hide empty trash containers.
* Remove mineral deposits that have accumulated at water level in the toilet. Try rubbing stain with "wet" sandpaper available in hardware stores. Or, pour one cup of bleach into bowl; let sit for a few hours and scrub off stains.
