Staying inside for days at a time can be as hard on your dog’s mind as yours, so hopefully you’re able to safely take Fido on a lot of walks away from other people during quarantine. Dogs may get restless, and you may be bored, so why not be productive by training your pup while also giving him or her a little mental stimulation?

The first step to training your dog to do tricks is that they respond much more effectively to positive reinforcement, NOT punishment. This means that you reward behaviors you like, and ignore behaviors you don’t like. Begin by rewarding your pup with small treats paired with a positive “good boy/girl” tone. Then, you can reward a little more with just “good boy/girl” by itself, and you can use the treats intermittently.

So, the family is stuck at home bored, and you finished a 1000-piece puzzle you thought you would never even try. Now what? Maybe you want to move it off the dining room table, but don’t want to break it apart just yet. You could use Modge Podge to glue it together forever, OR you can keep it together temporarily with supplies you have at the house!

Here’s how to keep a puzzle together without glue!

When the puzzle is completed and assuming you put it together on top of a poster board, place a 2nd poster board (or very tight Saran Wrap) over the top of the completed puzzle and carefully (and I mean very carefully) flip the puzzle over. Hopefully you didn’t just flip the puzzle back into a thousand pieces, and you have it flat on its front.

“Ok,

1,000 piece puzzles can be daunting, but are a great way to pass the time with multiple family members and keep that strategic brain busy. During quarantine time, it’s a great idea to designate a table or countertop in a common living area and kind of “puzzle graze” throughout the day. Ponder it awhile, take breaks, or come back to it while watching a movie or over a glass of after dinner wine. Laid out below is a step-by-step guide to completing a 1,000 piece puzzle that, once mastered, you can apply to a puzzle of any size!

Designate a Workspace

Before we take out the pieces, designate a specific workspace in a common area of the house like the dining room, a large coffee table, or a large kitchen island. Note the dimensions of the puzzle you're

If you haven’t been counted in the 2020 census yet, do it! You may ask why it’s important- the 2020 census is important because it provides the government and businesses with a snapshot of our nation. Once complete, it will determine congressional representation, where hundreds of billions of dollars of federal funding is spent, and will provide data that will impact communities for the next DECADE.

Imagine you have ten years worth of lunches to plan, and someone tells you to plan it for 5 people, then 10 people actually show up. That wouldn’t make for very good planning, now would it? Count yourself IN so your community receives the funding it needs!

 

Congressional Representation

The results of this once-a-decade count determine the

The Village of North Palm Beach's motto is “The Best Place to Live Under The Sun”, but why? Besides being voted one the “Best Places to Live in Florida in 2020”, and ranking one of the safest cities in Florida, North Palm Beach has so much to offer in terms of boating, fishing, golfing, and community.

North Palm Beach lines the intracoastal waterway which opens up to a natural island called “Little Munyon” where families boat and camp to relax in the ocean breeze. Just to the south of North Palm Beach is the gorgeous Peanut Island, where locals can pull their boats up to the sandbar or take a ferry to camp and grill on the island itself. Snorkeling is popular in this area, as there are quite a few reefs that host lots of beautiful tropical fish and
