I’m just going to shoot from the hip on this one (although seriously, when do I not?).
Most of us know how to stay healthy in public; it’s all common sense. Wash your hands and practice good hygiene, stay hydrated, cover your mouth when you sneeze or cough, stay away from co-workers who are sick, etc. We learned this stuff in kindergarten, people. Yet despite our best efforts, the occasional virus infiltrates the workplace and in general, makes a mess of things. People are going home sick, and the disinfectant wipes are passed around in excess.

So, it’s that time of year when the weather is beginning to warm up and most people are turning their air conditioners on full blast.

I only recall turning my heater on in my home just a couple of times during those, so-called winter months. So, if you happen to have experienced this same weather, then your a/c or heater hasn’t been running for a while. This could cause an extreme buildup of unwanted air...

Containing Indoor Pet Allergens
We all know someone who is allergic to pets in some way. That person probably doesn’t have a pet of their own, and most likely, you have to put your pets up or outside when this friend comes to visit. It’s unknown, really, as to what makes a person allergic to something, and that makes preventing allergic reactions difficult.

You are sitting in your house with the windows open, and your screen door is open to let fresh air inside your home. The weather outside is amazing. The sun is shining, and there’s a light breeze blowing through your home. You can hear the neighbors across the street talking in their living room, because they too have their windows open. It’s so pleasant.
Now, let’s imagine that I’m pollen. I climb in through your window without you knowing. I bounce around your house touching everything I can. I leave a layer of yellow dust on all of your furniture. I even...
