With winter looming like a cloud of spilled oatmeal on the horizon, now is the ideal time to batten down the hatches and get home-care projects underway. Colorfully feather your nest with paints and supplies from Benjamin Moore (starting at $3.99), or eradicate stray skids with Bona floor products and accessories (starting at $7.99). Pick up some multi-purpose Gorilla Glue ($2.99 - $8.99) for minor repairs, or to finally mount every buffalo nickel and steel penny in your coin collection. Additional selections of tools, hardware, and cleaning products keep dens snug through cold winter months. Should plentiful options make your head perform pirouettes, a helpful staff is on hand with dedicated customer service that will bring back fond memories of simpler days, such as December 8, 1947, or September 26, 1959. Whatever the project may be, Wexford Ace Hardware carries the wares and professional guidance to get the home-improvement wheel running without unexpected leaks or squeaking noises. Top-drawer customer service, an enormous stock of supplies for all occasions, competitive prices, and the ability to special order any product make Ace the place that houses dream about when they begin having existential crises.

The body is a complex system—with slight imbalances in one area often setting off discomfort in another. Dr. Anthony DiCesaro at Whitehall Health Centre works to make cures simpler and address a wide range of maladies. He explains to potential patients how a spinal realignment can reduce pain or how wrist supports can prevent future injury for competitive rock-paper-scissors players. To this list of traditional treatment methods, Dr. DiCesaro adds cold-laser therapy. The laser’s gentle glow doesn’t heat tissue, yet it inspires cellular activity that can expedite the healing process, prevent the formation of scar tissue, and boost the collagen production. Different methods are also used inside Whitehall Health Centre’s cosmetic division, where technicians use the SlenderRay Lipo treatment to flatten unwanted curves and a blue LED light to aid in teeth-whitening treatments.
