    How will I know which childcare center/preschool is right for my family?

    Ask around. Do research online. Most importantly go visit. Once you have decided what type of care works best for your family’s needs (in-home, faith-based, large daycare facilities, child development centers/preschools), choose several you want to see first hand. There are many good checklists that can be referenced online, including a list of quality indicators at www.scottsdaleacademy.com, to assist in your research.

    Two basic elements of a site-visit that tell volumes:

    1. Look to see if the children are happy as well as the staff.
    2. What does the atmosphere feel like?
    Most importantly go with your instinct.

    What should I do to take care of my faucets and sinks?

    Even small drips can waste thousands of gallons of water, as much as 150 gallons a day! Be sure to check under sinks for moisture or small leaks. And always repair leaky faucets right away to avoid paying for wasted water, and also to avoid water damage to your fixtures and pipes. Remove and clean your faucet aerators annually to ensure an even flow of water. Make sure overflow holes on tubs and vanity are clear and open to prevent water damage to floors and ceilings.

    When should I prune back my hybrid tea roses hard?

    Late January and early February are ideal times to give them their first pruning of the year. Remove all dead canes, broken wood, diseased canes and small skinny canes. Also remove any canes growing toward the center of the bush to keep the center open. Save only 4 of 5 of the strongest canes and cut them back at about knee height. Make the cuts at a 45 degree angle about one quarter of an inch above outward facing buds. Be sure to use sharp clippers and to dip the blades in alcohol between cuts.

    Can I replace my two-handled faucet with a single-handle faucet?

    Usually, faucet dimensions and sink openings are standard throughout the plumbing industry, so the answer is usually yes. There are a few exceptions, so check the size of the sink opening before you buy new fixtures.
