Scott PalmerWhen people say “the British Bard,” most of the time they are referring to the one

and only William Shakespeare. There is, however, another British poet that has captured the hearts and minds of the British people (and people throughout the world) with his wit, wisdom, and powerful poetry: Burns achieved the

coveted title of “national poet of Scotland," and his works are

still performed throughout the world to this day.

Unlike his fellow British writer William Shakespeare,

Robert Burns has his very own holiday named after him:

Burns Night! Bag&Baggage’s

Burns Night Supper will follow Scottish tradition by featuring

a live bagpiper, drams of whiskey, and a traditional

Scottish meal including cocka-leekie soup, neeps and tatties, bangers and mash, sticky toffee pudding, and of

course, haggis. There will also be a

small silent and live auction

selection. Guests will be “piped

in” to the event and will also

be entertained by performances

by B&B resident actors of

Burns poetry and contemporary

Scottish poetry. In addition,

singers from the Oregon

Chorale will perform a range

of Scottish songs, including

The Rose of Scotland and Auld

Lang Syne.

Tickets for the event at $80

and include entertainment, a

traditional Burns Night Supper,

and a dram of tasting

whiskey. A cash bar featuring

a range of scotches, wines and

beers is also available. The

event begins at 5:00pm on January

28, 2017 at Merriwether

National Golf Club in Hillsboro

and tickets must be purchased

in advance. Tickets can be purchased

online at www.bagnbaggage.

Are you one of the nearly 80 million Americans suffering from low back pain at this moment?

Do you think injection or surgery may be the answer?

Do you have a family member, friend or neighbor who has dealt with back pain and underwent surgery for it?

Looking at statistics on low back pain in our country, the odds are good that you answered yes to at least one of the above questions. Back pain affects many of us. In fact, studies show that 80% of the population will experience low back pain at some point in their lives.

One good thing that may be coming from this recognition of how big of a problem low back pain is today is that it’s forcing the healthcare system to recognize that the traditional approach to treating it has not worked. Virginia Mason medical center in Seattle has now shown that within their system, treating patients with Physical Therapy within 14 days of the onset of low back pain resulted in significant cost savings, lower treatment duration and better patient outcomes (typically excellent—some cases resulted in relief of pain after 2 visits). This was opposed to the traditional approach where a patient is prescribed medication, ordered x-rays/MRI/CT scans then treated later with injection, surgery or physical therapy (approximately double the cost, significantly longer treatment duration and poorer outcomes up to 1 year later).

So, if you are experiencing low back pain and unsure of what to do—try Physical Therapy.

To keep our customers informed of Oregon code changes and sys­tem enhancement products, we have two items to highlight.

Locking Refrigerant Access Ports: All new installations of outside air conditioners or heat pumps now require locking re­frigerant access ports. The code was put into place to prevent peo­ple from inhaling (huffing) Freon from residential and commercial systems. Locking caps also pre­vent the theft of Freon for resale. The cost of Freon is rising and is worth more per pound then met­al. Some systems require more than one cap. These caps require a special key and are for service technicians only. This is also why we do not leave the key for the caps with the homeowner.

Carbon monoxide detec­tors are also required to be in­stalled in all family dwellings. This code is strictly enforced. We believe every house should have a carbon monoxide detector. The investment is minimal com­pared to one’s life. Every dwell­ing should have one and in some cases more than one. They need to be located in each bedroom or within fifteen feet of each bed­room door. Things to look for are power consumption and battery backup life, location of where to mount the unit, and life expec­tancy of the unit. We currently sell a unit which reads at lower levels than most store purchased models, and has a built in battery backup, with a detector life of seven years.

Call Hybrid today to update your home for safety and code upgrades.

We hope your holiday sea-son is merry, bright and jolly! We hope you are excited for the magic of the season to take hold. But if you find yourself not so jolly, or flat out sad, you are not alone. Stressors such as loneliness, lack of funds, be-ing away from a loved one, a loss in family (death, divorce, change of address,) memo-ries of past holidays, unreal-istic expectations, etc. might push your emotions close to a breaking point. If you find yourself in this boat, try these tips to help get and stay on the positive side; ¦ Predict and handle poten-tial stressors early-on: Cre-ate a schedule, make a bud-get and stick to it, do not go overboard, remember it real-ly is the thought that counts. ¦ Take care of yourself: Get enough sleep and exercise, keep your already estab-lished routines, seek sun-light when possible, read a book, get a massage, take a drive in the evening to look at the lights, do something that makes you happy to re-charge your batteries. ¦ Manage loneliness: be pro-active in your plans, call a friend, purchase a ticket to visit family/friends far away, volunteer to help those less fortunate, accept an invita-tion to dinner, plan a new year’s party of your own, be in control of your circum-stances. ¦ Be aware: Remember that it’s normal to not always be happy this time of year, and that’s okay. Do remember if you’re ever feeling particu-larly depressed or stressed, call us. We stand ready to help you find a way to develop a successful holiday survival plan.
