Dear readers: Today's sound is about those who save animals.
"Dear Heloise, I believe Gandhi once said, "The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated." There are many wonderful people who find a sad little wandering animal or an animal that has been thrown by an insensitive, insensitive person who brings us the animal to the shelter. These rescuers dive under the trucks, climb trees and do everything necessary to save a cat, a dog or an animal. They can hear a little scream or see an animal tremble and do everything they can to provide them with shelter and food.
"These are the unsung heroes, who seem to know no limit to kindness.All who can not look away, who can not say:" This is not my problem "when they see a wandering wanderer , thank you."

Dear Heloise, Years ago, when my husband and I went to sell our house, I had no idea of the dates when we bought property, such as the new heater, new windows, a refrigerator, etc. . information that it contains: The dishwasher – bought in 2016; replacement windows – purchased in 2015; the new entry door – bought in 2014; etc. This book will help us when we sell our house.

Dear Heloise, I am a postman in Arkansas. We have ants, wasps, yellow wasps and spiders nesting in mailboxes. Placing a sheet of fabric softener in the mailbox will deter them. Replace often. Please, do not spray insect killer in the mailbox. The spray is sent on the mail, which is transferred between your hands and ours.

Dear Heloise, The crooks are new. They call people and ask, "Is it (name)?" They will use your name and you will probably say "yes" by habit, but do not answer. Just hang up because they could record your answer in your voice and use it fraudulently. Most people do not answer the phone if it is not a number that they recognize or it is an area code that they do not know about not. Be proactive and refuse to give the scammers an audience.
