In many regions, winter means bitter
cold and snowy wetness. Here are a
few tips to help keep your four-legged
family members warm and safe:
• Wash your pet’s paws, legs, and belly
after returning inside to prevent them
from licking sidewalk salt and other
chemicals from their feet and fur.
• Use nontoxic, pet-safe deicers on
your property to protect your pets and
other pets in your neighborhood.
• Beware of antifreeze, coolant, and
other poisonous chemical spills that
animals may ingest.
• Use plastic bowls outside. Your pet’s
tongue can stick and freeze to metal.
• Ensure your pet has a collar and/or
a microchip with updated contact
information. A blanket of snow can
make it difficult for pets to find their
way by scent. Consider a GPS tracker
on your pet’s collar so you can locate
him/her with your smartphone.
• Beware of tinsel, ribbons, and other
holiday decorations that can cut up
your pet’s digestive tract and cause
intestinal obstructions.
• Don’t leave pets outside in the cold.
Pets exposed to extreme cold or
dangerous windchill temps are at
risk of hypothermia and frostbite.
Their noses, ears, and paws can
quickly freeze and suffer damage.
• Always bang on your vehicle’s
hood to scare away any animals that
may have been attracted to a warm
engine before starting your vehicle.
• Never leave your pet alone in a car
during cold weather.
• Be extra cautious when using
space heaters. Pets could get burned
or accidentally knock them over and
start a fire.
• Do not give pets leftover meat
dishes that contain cooked bones. Pets
can suffer stomach perforation, fatal
organ damage, or painful constipation
after ingesting splintered bones.
• Beware of common holiday
poisons, such as holly, mistletoe,
poinsettias, chocolate, and candy.
• Be careful of the placement of
electrical cords. If chewed, live cords
can cause burns in and around a pet’s
mouth, as well as difficulty breathing,
seizures, and cardiac arrest.

If your business is looking for
a creative yet inexpensive way to
increase your marketing efforts,
we recommend custom-printed
placemats. While custom-printed
placemats are commonly seen in
the hospitality industry, they can
also be a great promotional tool
at any event, such as fundraisers,
corporate celebrations, meetings,
or weddings. They are a unique
way to keep your name and
message in front of your audience,
and they are available in an
endless variety of shapes, colors,
paper types, and finishes.
Much like its name implies, the Wave
of Coyote Buttes features an array of
brilliantly colored, exposed sandstone
which resembles waves.
The Wave is comprised of thousands
of layers of sand dunes which hardened
into Navajo sandstone. Wind and water
have sculpted and carved the sandstone
layers, creating
an awe-inspiring
wonderland of
flowing “waves”
in bright oranges,
reds, pinks, and
yellows. It is
one of the most
visually surreal,
and worldrenowned geologic
formations in the
southwestern United States.
Visitors should be aware that there is
no formal hiking trail to reach the Wave.
It requires a moderately difficult, rugged
hike, often in extreme temperatures, and
it is located in Vermilion Cliffs National
Monument, in Arizona.
However, simply getting the
opportunity to see the Wave can be
even more challenging than the hike
itself. Only 20 people are given permits
each day to see the Wave. Ten permits
are issued online in advance, and the
rest are awarded by lottery. The U.S.
Bureau of Land Management limits
access to protect the Wave’s delicate red
sandstone formation
and to prevent
overcrowding at
the designated
wilderness site.
While the Wave
is an amazing
destination, the
same exotic rock is
displayed in various
formations and
colors throughout
the hike to and from
the Wave. This
includes sandstone
buttes, huge mesas, jagged red rock
projecting out of the sand, and towering
hills of rosy stone, which make the hiking
scenery a stunning runner-up to the
destination itself.

Pressure Points for Pain Relief
There are more than 400 acupressure points on the body that can promote relaxation and
relieve pain. Here are a few popular areas to apply pressure:
• Squeeze and massage the fleshy area between your thumb and pointer finger to relieve
headaches, toothaches, and neck and shoulder pain (avoid when pregnant).
• Press down on the area on the inner wrist between the tendons and below the palm to rid
nausea, upset stomach, chest pain, and carpal tunnel pain.
• Apply pressure and massage the knobby spot on the upper bridge of your nose between
your eyebrows to help improve memory, relieve eyestrain and stress, and calm your mind.
• Press firmly on your prominent neck muscles along your spine, below the base of your
skull to reduce stress, headache, neck pain, insomnia, and neck stiffness.
• Apply pressure to the backside of the kneecap to reduce knee, back, and sciatica pain.
• Bend your leg and apply pressure to the fleshy area about two inches below your
kneecap. You can press on both legs at the same time to help digestive disorders, fight
fatigue, and boost the immune system.
❂ Note: Please consult your doctor before using acupressure when pregnant.
