On May 26, 2005 Procare joined 5th Gear Enterprises in holding a Continuing Education class to several insurance agents in need of CE credit hours. It was a huge success; the class titled “Succethics-Ethics for Insurance Agents” refreshed the agents on successful ethical means of ensuring great customer service. Lunch was served courtesy of ProCare, and the reviews were great! It was also a great opportunity for agents to see what our beautiful shop looks like first hand, so they can spread the word to their customers that ProCare is the best choice for their vehicle. ProCare now offers access to on-line CE courses through our website www.procarecollision.com for your convenience. For more details call Jennifer at the Fairdale location 488-9346 or Shannon at the Military location at 928-7670. 

You can't help but notice that we have a whole new look, and we hope you like it as much as we do. But our new site has more to offer than just a pretty face. We've made improvements and additions that should make it easier for you to navigate the site, faster to find what you need, and more helpful in getting you the information you want.


 Cancer (June 22-July 23)
This month you will have many private moments that will help you to communicate to others your fondest wishes. You could be getting some ideas on how to use and improve your shared resources but watch for hidden issues as you could have the tendency to work too quickly for your own good. You might be having some obstacles and road blocks at your work place as changes there are working against what your personal beliefs are. There is the need to negotiate until you reach mutual satisfaction.

 Leo (July 24-August 22)
Many social activities with friends are on the agenda for you this month, and this could make you spend more than you have anticipated, but the glamour and the enjoyment that you will get from these social activities will be right down your alley. There are some restrictions in your life that are giving you some mental anxiety. You are keeping these feelings to yourself as you try to learn any lessons that life is bringing to you in the matter of love relationships and children.

Take it off while putting it on.

Basically, wear as little clothes as possible but please, not to the point of offending anyone. Ideally, your clothes should be light-coloured, loose fitting and tightly woven. A hat is also useful for protecting your nose, ears and neck from the sun. Remember, the fewer items of clothes you wear, the more you will need sun-block. Can't damage that precious skin now can we? Sunglasses with special UV filtering are a must and can also be "cool" fashion statements.

Drink, drink, drink

Make water your friend and constant companion. We are always drilled with the old clich* "you must drink 8-oz glasses of water everyday" but guess what; we need to be doing as it says. Without sufficient water, you do not perspire sufficiently and in this upcoming heat, this lack could lead your body to serious dehydration. You may also drink Gatorade and other sports drinks but remember, they should not become a replacement for water.

Reduce your alcohol, tea, coffee and cola intake

These beverages are very dehydrating so when you drink them, you are losing valuable liquid instead of replacing them. Whenever you drink alcohol, counter it with double the amount of water and match every one cup of caffeine with one glass of water.

In honor of National Hot Dog Month, some answers to those dogging questions


July is National Hot Dog Month, and according to the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council, Americans will be consuming the infamous little red tubes of "meat" in record numbers this summer.

The Council estimates that over seven billion hot dogs will be eaten by Americans between Memorial Day and Labor Day. During the July 4th weekend alone (the biggest hot-dog holiday of the year), 155 million will be downed.

Every year, Americans eat an average of 60 hot dogs each. They are clearly one of the country's most loved, but most misunderstood, comfort foods. Below you'll find some frequently asked questions regarding the hot dog. For more information, visit the Council's website at www.hot-dog.org. Bon app*tit.


How did the hot dog get its name?

The term "hot dog" is credited to sports cartoonist Tad Dorgan. At a 1901 baseball game at the

 Polo Grounds in New York, vendors began selling hot dachsund sausages in rolls.

From the press box, Dorgan could hear the vendors yelling, "Get your dachshund sausages while they're red hot!" He sketched a cartoon depicting the scene but wasn't sure how to spell "dachshund" so he called them simply, "hot dogs." And the rest is history.


What exactly is a hot dog made of?

Nope. You're not allowed to ask that one. And do you really want to know anyway? For the record, the Council refers to the actual meat as "specially selected meat trimmings." They would like to point out, however, that thanks to stricter U.S. Department of Agriculture rules, hot-dog meat has become much leaner and, unless otherwise indicated, must be made from muscle (as most meat found in supermarkets is).

Most supermarket hot dogs use cellulose casings, which are removed before packaging. Some, however, still use the traditional natural casings, made from animal intestines. By law, a hot dog can contain up to 3.5 percent of "non-meat ingredients." Don't be scared. This is usually just some type of milk or soy product used to add to the nutritional value. Many hot dogs may be relatively high in fat and sodium, but they are also a good source of protein, iron, and other necessary vitamins.


What is the most popular condiment for a hot dog?

Council research shows that for adults, mustard is the condiment of choice, while children prefer ketchup. That said, preferences do change from region to region. For instance, hot dogs in New York are generally served with a lighter mustard and steamed onions, while Chicago hot dogs can come with mustard, relish, onions, tomato slices, or pretty much anything at all.
