Engine Oil, Check!
Checking your engine oil on a regular basis is a key part of keeping your engine running well and getting the most miles out of it. The oil lubricates the engine’s internal moving parts, keeping them from wearing too quickly. It also helps keep the engine clean, by preventing dirt buildup, and helps keep it from overheating.
Checking the oil level is quick and easy; and it is recommended you do this at every other gas fill-up.
What you need is a rag or paper towel, and your car’s owner’s manual if you have questions.
First, check the owner's manual and follow the steps. Some newer cars have electronic oil monitors and don't have traditional dipsticks for manual inspection.
If checking the oil yourself, make sure the car is parked on level ground and, with most cars, the engine is cold, so you don’t burn yourself on a hot engine part. (With some cars, the automaker recommends that the oil be checked after the engine has been warmed up.)
With the engine off, open the car’s hood and find the dipstick. Pull the dipstick out from the engine and wipe any oil off from its end. Then insert the dipstick back into its tube and push it all the way back in.
Pull it back out, and this time look at both sides of the dipstick to see where the oil is on the end. Every dipstick has some way of indicating the proper oil level, whether it is two pinholes, the letters L and H (low and high), or the words MIN and MAX.
But if the oil is below the minimum mark, you would need to add more oil
Also, check the oil’s color. It should appear light brown NOT deep brown.
If everything’s okay, wipe off the dipstick again and insert it back into its tube, making sure it’s fully seated.
If not, get the car to a mechanic for further diagnosis.
Close the hood and you’re done.

SAFETY TIPS WHEN HANDLING HEATING AND COOKING APPLIANCES.
Safety cannot be over-emphasized. If you find that the flame from the gas burner which burns blue suddenly burns yellow, you need to have it checked.

Blood donation is humanitarian; it is giving the gift of life and saving lives. It also helps your body to produce new blood cells.
Blood is in constant demand for the treatment of patients involved in accidents, patients with cancer, leukemia or with a bleeding disorder such as haemophilia among others. Many surgical operations would not be possible without blood.
Approximately 36,000 units of red blood cells are needed every day in the U.S. ALONE. Click on the link to register as a blood donor.
