Always wait for a circular blade to completely stop before pulling from a cut. Otherwise it may bend or kickback.
Weatherstrip and caulk all cracks between the wall and the window trim, especially under the window sills. Replace broken glass and putty any loose window panes. Caulk around the moving parts of windows with a strip-away, non-permanent caulk during the winter. This type caulk can be removed easily in the spring.
If you are like most of us and not getting any younger, consider adding features to your kitchen that will ease the transition to the Golden Years. Rollout shelves reduce stooping and bending; raising the dishwasher an extra few inches does too. Add a heatproof landing area next to the oven and stove to reduce cross-kitchen carting of heavy pots and hot pans.
