Home Repair Clinic - June Newsletter

Every month we start our newsletter with a column called Wishbone's Tips. Wishbone works hard each and every month to bring you some helpful and time saving tips. Usually the tips benefit him in some way but not always, occasionally he thinks of others. This month Wishbone is thinking about all the students that are being homeschooled by overworked stressed out parents. Believe it or not, he sympathizes with both the parents and their kids. So this month Wishbone announced he wanted to offer some, hopefully, helpful tips for kids and parents.

A Fun Challenge that checks off both Math & Reading (Spelling) - (The Dollar Word as told in a book titled 'Because of Mr. Terrupt'.)

Write the alphabet assigning each letter a progressive penny amount, for example ; A = 1cent, B = 2 cents, C = 3 cents, etc. Then try to come up with as many words as you can that total EXACTLY $1.00. There are actually quite a few. You may need to purchase the book to find out what the words are if you can't figure them out on your own! And remember, an incentive always helps, maybe a dollar for every dollar word? Okay, okay, too rich for your blood? (It's not easy, a dollar may be a fair incentive.) Wishbone says a steak for every dollar word but I think an ice cream or cupcake would work too.

Every homeowner, at some time or other, has felt their eyes widen, their heart speed up, and this question scream in their mind "Is that mold?!" That's generally the first thing that happens. The next thing is up to you. Do you close your eyes and hope it's not a harmful mold and pretend you never saw it? Or. Do you do the right thing for your family's health. Do you call Heathy Spaces Inc.?  

We, at JimSalmon.com, sincerely hope you call Healthy Spaces Inc.


There are many types of mold, and none of them will grow without water or moisture. Mold begins growing when spores land on surfaces that are wet or damp. To mitigate the issue, you need to identify the source of moisture and correct that problem first. After you safely remove the mold, you can be comfortable it won’t return.- Healthy Spaces Inc.

Spring and summer = pollen and dust. That pollen and dust may have settled outside on your windows. Pollen is stubborn and will continue to cake on over time, so letting it sit there all season long can turn into a problem. It’s much harder to clean at the end of the season if it’s left for a few months. Why not call the great folks at Rochester Window Cleaning today to restore a clear view to the outside?

Genesee Valley Motors "No-Nonsense" Standards

You've heard that Genesee Valley Motors is "The No-Nonsense" Dealer, they say it, we say it, but do you know why they are "The No-Nonsense" Dealer? Because of their standards...their "No-Nonsense" Standards. The term isn't just something they came up with, they truly have a set of standards that every prospective car buyer should look for in a dealership. And unless you look at Genesee Valley Motors you'll be looking far and wide to find any other dealership that prescribes to the standards Genesee Valley Motors does.

Genesee Valley Motors "No-Nonsense" Standards:

  • We have non-commissioned salespeople who receive no incentive to make you pay more. As you negotiate your purchase with one of our salespeople, you will quickly see that their objective is to have you be a valued customer for life, not just a sale for today. The deal presented to you will be transparent and understandable. What's more, you will not be subjected to the typical "back and forth to the manager" tactic found at other dealerships.
  • We have no "finance manager" whose objective is to sell high markup low-benefit add-ons, like paint sealant and electronic rustproofing. Here, you will not be asked to buy worthless "add-ons" for your car.
  • You will find that our advertising is clear and in plain language using only rebates that are available to all customers, not just members of a small special group.
  • We do not conduct "key in the mail" sales, "phony check in the mail sales", "repo sales" or "free stuff for life" schemes. They only add to your cost one way or another.
  • We sell only factory warranties so you will not have to "pre pay" for a covered repair or have trouble getting service if you are out of town.
  • We always stock certified used vehicles, as well as traditional use d cars.
  • Our shop is open 6 days a week, even Saturday, 7am-8pm so you can get your vehicle serviced when it is convenient for you.
  • We are Better Business Bureau A+ Accredited.
  • We are "big truck" and diesel certified with the mechanics, tools and 30,000 lb. lifts they require.
  • Your satisfaction is important to us and our dealer principal will ultimately become involved if there ever is an issue that you feel is unresolved.

We are finally into the warmer season and soon it will be summer. Everyone, especially this year, has been looking forward to the fresh air. But remember, we are not the only ones that need a break from the inside; our four legged friends are just as eager to be outside enjoying the warmer weather. You can let them run free independently when you have a fencing system fromInvisible Fence of Upstate New York.

Add the pet door and you have the best of all worlds...and so does your pet.
