Drowsy Driving the Same as Drunk Driving?

Not getting enough sleep? Well maybe it’s about time you should because a recent study from AAA says that getting less than seven hours of sleep a day is just as risky as drunk driving! Read the article below by Sleep Savvy Magazine all about AAA’s study.

Drowsy Driving as Risky as Drunk Driving

A study from AAA finds sleeping less than seven hours a day doubles the dangers of crashing.

Drivers who miss between one to two hours of the recommended seven hours of sleep in a 24-hour period and are drowsing driving nearly double their risk of a crash, according to research from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says 35% of U.S. drivers sleep less than the recommended seven hours daily. And with drowsy driving involved in more than one in five fatal crashes on U.S. roadways each year, AAA warns drivers getting less than seven hours of sleep may have deadly consequences.

“You cannot miss sleep and still expect to be able to safely function behind the wheel,” says David Yang, executive director for the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. “Our new research shows that a driver who has slept for less than five hours has a crash risk comparable with someone driving drunk.”

The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety’s report, “Acute Sleep Deprivation and Risk of Motor Vehicle Crash Involvement,” released in December 2016, reveals that drivers missing two to three hours of sleep in a 24-hour period more than quadrupled their risk of a crash, compared with drivers getting the recommended seven hours of sleep. This is the same crash risk the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration associates with driving over the legal limit for alcohol.

Kim Adam’s Dining Room Traditions

HolidayDining copyOne of the craziest things I’ve ever said as a mother came after I found my two toddlers sitting under our formal dining room table eating crackers. I walked into the room and said in utter dismay  “No eating in the dining room!” As soon as the words came out of my mouth, I started to laugh. How ridiculous that the sight of my kids eating crackers under our fancy table would prompt such shock. But the kids knew the formal dining room was only for special occasions. The crystal and china, turkish rug, and the beautiful dining set complete with….ready for this…white, silk covered chairs!  Yes, I said white silk. Clearly a purchase made before my 5 adorable kids were part of the picture.

That was the day I decided we needed to use our dining room more. Why have a formal dining room if no one is even allowed to eat in it? I thought I would start with Sunday dinners. But a few months later, we moved into a home with no eat-in kitchen at all. The home was built in 1928 when the only people that ate in kitchen were the servants. So our beautiful dining room table, and our 6 white chairs became our everyday table.   At the time, I had 4 kids. Including 3 children under the age of 6.  So you can imagine how quickly my white chairs became multi-color with stains of every kind. And you know what?   I didn’t even care. I loved that every family meal seemed special. It was a gorgeous room that felt cozy and warm.

Family dinner is a tradition in my home. We sit down as a family at least 3 times a week.   Its when my kids talk about their day. Where we pray and come together and shut out the rest of the world. I love my dining room table. I love that my children will remember it someday. And not unlike my life, those perfect white chairs are now a bit stained and imperfect. And I love that too.

Bring those traditions home to your dining room with a new dining set. Gardner-White offers a range of dining sets to fit your family style and size! Here are just some of the options we offer!

What is Microfiber?

Microfibers

Imagine a fiber so fine and delicate that it’s four times finer than wool three times finer than cotton, twice as fine as the finest silk and one hundred times finer than human hair.

Microfibers, as they are called, measure less than one denier. The term denier measures the fineness of man-made fibers. Denier is the weight in grams of 9,000 metres of yarn, which is equal to one denier. One to three denier refers to fine cotton or wool, five to eight denier is average cotton and wool, 10 to 15 denier corresponds to very fine nylon stockings.

Micro-denier fibers are finer than any fibers occurring in nature. These fibers are available in a range of deniers making it possible to produce a variety of fabric types and weights.

Micro-fibers are not a new idea. The Japanese developed microfiber yarn nearly 20 years ago. The most well-known microfiber fabric today is Ultra suede.

Composition of Microfibers

Microfibers are made from polyester, nylon, rayon and most recently acrylic. They also can be blended with other fibres including cotton, linen, wool, rayon and Lycra spandex. Blends enhance the appearance, hand, drape and performance properties of the fabric. At this time there are no regulations about the per cent of micro necessary for using the term micro-fibre.
The fabric industry agrees that 35 to 40 percent is the minimwn amount required to retain the desired hand and performances.
Companies are concerned about small amounts being used in a fibre blend as an advertising hype and calli!lg the product a ‘micro-fibre’.

Micro-fibres can be woven or knitted into a variety of fabrics such as twill, satin, faille, crepe, taffeta and broadcloth. Various finishes enhance the look and feel of micro-fibres. Peach skin provides a velvety hand, others have a silk, sand washed or a leather look.

Characteristics of Microfibers

  • Strong and durable
  • Lightweight and supple
  • Good stability and shape retention
  • Wrinkle resistant
  • Washable and dries quickly
  • Comfortable to wear as they are more porous
  • Water repellent and wind resistant
  • Doesn’t water spot

Uses of Microfibers

Because air passes easily through the fabric, moisture is wicked away from the skin’s surface to the outer face of the fabric. This makes micro-fibres particularly desirable for outerwear and body wear. These fabrics can take on visually any surface and texture quality. They can be sanded or sueded giving a lush velvety texture. End uses for microfiber fabrics include men’s slacks and ties, women’s silk-like blouses and dresses, hosiery, evening wear, tailored suits, children’s wear, rain wear, intimate apparel and sheets and pillow cases. Luxurious upholstery fabrics are also getting the micro-fiber touch. Fabrics made from these ultra-fine fibers can be produced from filament and staple yarns. Other applications include wiping cloths, high performance filters, artificial blood vessels, sanitary and towel products.

Are you ready to add microfiber to your home? You’ll love the soft touch and the luxurious look of microfiber. Here are some microfiber sofa’s you can add to your living room!
