Avoid The 4 Most Common Reasons
For Car Accidents

Isn’t it scary? You’re driving along and all of a sudden you don’t have control of your vehicle. You grip the steering wheel with both hands and with one violent thrust, press down on the brake pedal as hard as you can until you come to a complete stop. You look up, then breathe a sigh of relief. No one was hurt. You were lucky… but what if there were another car around? Most people rely on luck to save them when they get in a situation that could lead to a car accident. The feeling is, accidents on the road are unavoidable. Collisions from someone making a bad decision or being distracted, like running a red light or merging into your car, can and do happen even if you’re the safest driver in the world. But there are accidents you can avoid and they’re actually the most common reasons why car accidents occur. Everyone will face one if not all four of these situations where you lose control of your vehicle. Here’s exactly what to do if, and when, they happen to you:

    1. Suddenly Swerving? – Do this: If you have to swerve to avoid hitting an animal or another car, turn your car first, then press the brake pedal.
      1. Tire Blowout? – Do this: If you hear a loud pop and suddenly lose control, steer the car as straight as possible and don’t turn or brake. Press the gas pedal slightly to accelerate, which helps keep the car under control. Then slowly decelerate by pressing the brake to stop your vehicle.
        1. Running Off The Road? – Do this: If the side of your car drops off the edge of the road, steer straight and slow down gradually as you come to a stop on the shoulder. Then drive back onto the road.
        1. Sliding On Pavement? – Do this: If the roads are wet or icy and your car starts to slide, turn in the direction of the slide and let off the gas. Don’t slam on your brakes or they could lock up, press the brake slowly.

        Relieve Eye Pain In Seconds

        Do you spend much of the day staring at a computer, sending text messages on your phone, and ending the evening by watching a movie on a high-definition TV? No wonder your eyes are tired! Here are four exercises to relieve eye pain and make them not feel dry, itchy, blurred, and strained: Eye Roll:  While keeping your eyes open and head still, roll your eyes up to look at the ceiling, roll around clockwise slowly five times. Repeat the motion counter clockwise. Palming:  Rub the palms of your hands together until they are warm. Cover your eyes and concentrate on your breath until your palms cool. Massage:  Place your fingertips on your eyelids and gently move them in a circular motion for 60 seconds. Temple Turning:  Place the knuckles of your thumbs on the sides of your eyes near the temples. Massage by circling the temples three times. Do the same above the midpoint of your eyebrows and both sides of the bridge of your nose. It’s also a good idea to give your eyes a rest every 25 minutes spent reading or sitting in front of back-lit screen (computer, tablet, phone, TV). Simply get up and look around the room at other objects for 5 minutes.

        Fun Facts and Laughs

        3 Email Tips To Get More Done . . . These email tips will get more people to respond to your emails and help you get work done faster: 1. State the content and purpose in the subject line. This gives the recipient a chance to sort and prioritize their email. Be specific and if you need a response quickly, add “Action Required” or “Response Needed” to the subject line. 2. Know when to use CC and BCC. Use CC to copy people who are directly involved. This keeps them involved in the email conversation. Use BCC when you want to notify someone that an email was sent but you don’t want the main recipient to see who you are notifying. 3. Use “Forward” effectively. When someone responds and you want to notify another person, simply Forward the email with a message that says, “FYI.” If someone has not responded to your email after several days or weeks, go to your Sent Messages and Forward them your email but change the subject line to say, “FWD: Did you get this?”

        Save $$$ On Designer Clothes . . . Men have been renting tuxedoes for decades, so why can’t women rent a dress for a wedding or party? It’s easy with online dress rental services like Simply pick the dress you want from over 25,000 available and have it delivered the next day. Then keep it for 4 or 8 days, and mail it back when you’re done. The rental cost is usually 10% of the cost to buy a designer dress, with rentals from $50 to $350. Not to be left out, guys now have more options for neckwear with tie rental services. lets you rent 3 ties with no return date for $20 a month, and you can exchange any of your designer ties at any time.

        Have A Laugh — “Witty Wisdom” . . . •  Evening news is where they begin with “Good evening,” and then proceed to tell you why it isn’t. •  Hospitality is making your guests feel like they’re at home, even if you wish they were. •  The sole purpose of a child’s middle name is so he can tell when he’s really in trouble.

        Real Estate Q & A . . .
        Q.  What experts should I talk to if my home is about to go into foreclosure?
        A.  Avoid scammers, and talk to one or more of these professionals:

          • Your Real Estate Agent will help you review your options.
            • A Foreclosure Counselor will help you evaluate your current financial situation and serve as an advocate with your bank, free of charge.
              • A Tax Expert will advise you if you do a short sale or deed-in-lieu of foreclosure since forgiveness of debt may be considered taxable income.
                • A Credit Counselor can help you develop a plan to avoid future financial difficulty as well as help you repair your credit score.
                • An Attorney can help you if your lender has filed a foreclosure lawsuit.

                For more information on avoiding foreclosure, call and ask for my Free Consumer Report called “Options To Avoid Foreclosure.” I’ll be glad to send a copy right over to you. Do you have a real estate question you want answered? Feel free to call me at 864-443-2221 or email me at
