Disasters can strike at any time, and the American Red Cross encourages eligible donors to help their communities prepare for emergencies by giving blood during National Preparedness Month.

The mission of the Red Cross is to help the public prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies. During National Preparedness Month, the Red Cross reminds Americans to take simple steps to get ready for emergencies in their homes, workplaces and communities. One way to support this mission is to become a regular blood donor.

A stable blood supply is central to ensuring patient needs are met in emergencies. Blood can take up to three days to be tested, processed and made available for patients.

Ah, is that a collective sigh of relief I hear that the kids are back in school?

My daughter started third grade, where they were told they will have nightly homework for the first time. Wow. Which means weekends are going to be the time to play now that weeknights will be spent doing somework (after Girl Scouts meetings and religious education and karate class and viola lessons, that is).

In the spirit of embracing weekends, this Saturday, Sept. 6, offers a chance to check out two gems in the Berkshires for free.

First, Berkshire County residents and people who work in Berkshire County are invited to visit Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary in Lenox free of charge. The sanctuary grounds

Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
  Oscar Jaenada's interpretation of Mexican film legend Cantinflas is spot on, but some humor fails to translate.

It is to Oscar Jaenada's notable credit that his impersonation/depiction of Cantinflas completely convinces us that he was indeed Mexico's most famous and beloved comic film star, even if, unfortunately, much of the humor will be lost on English-speaking audiences.

We take the story's word for it that he was very funny, and recognize the characteristic angst he shares with our own Pagliaccis. But too little of the icon's pun-filled patter translates.

The European Central Bank has lagged behind both the U.S. and Japanese counterparts in their efforts to stimulate the economies of the European Union. Today, they attempted to address that fault before Europe sinks into a recession.

Both bond and stock market investors have been anticipating additional stimulus for several weeks. ECB President Mario Draghi did not disappoint. He said the bank would begin purchasing asset-backed securities and covered bonds, which are investments based on loans to corporations and residential mortgages. The hope is that others will now also jump on board and buy them too.

If that occurs, then European banks would have the courage to make more such loans

If something were to happen to you, would your family have enough life insurance to continue living the way they do today?

Experts say many families need 70 percent to 90 percent of their current gross income if something were to happen to the breadwinner.  It’s not a fun topic, but one that is very important and can help your family in a time of need.

Check your life insurance needs as your financial situation changes. Examples include:

* Education funding

* Career advancement

* Salary increases

* Change in mortgage expenses

Your financial advisor can help you with a strategy designed to help you anticipate the many options if you were to die.
