By mid December, most most people I guess has had their fill of cold weather. The Holidays are over, university is back in session, and life just takes on a boring existence; My kid sibling, Emily and I decided that the people I was with and I honestly needed something to chop up this dreary time of year. This year the people I was with and I are heading out on a Caribbean cruise to soak up the sunlight and see exciting sites. The trip includes passage on the ship and a 2 night stay at an island resort. It took most of our savings despite the fact that I am honestly looking forward to it. I only have one concern. I have seen reports of entire cruise ships becoming ill and I want to make sure that the people I was with and I are healthy throughout our time there. I have packed extra hand sanitizer, a spray disinfectant, and even antibacterial wipes to site over the air vents in our cabin. This may sound drastic despite the fact that I have no way of knowing what the filtration plan is appreciate on the ship. Every one of us will be breathing the same air as the rest of the passengers and germs can spread abruptly. At least if I site the wipes over the air vents they can help to kill the germs before the people I was with and I breathe them in. Even in your own lake apartment you should clean the air vents when you change the filter on your own Heating, Ventilation & A/C system. This will help to keep your lake apartment healthy and germ free too. If you happened to have colds or the flu while in the time the filter was in site, it may have missed some of the germs or bacteria. Better safe than sorry.
