What's One of Your Happy Places?

What's One of Your Happy Places?

My husband Brian is what we call a "man's man." He spent 10 years in the Navy doing silly things lilke jumping out of helicopters. For several years he drove a race car living by the mantra that "if you're not rubbing your not racing." Fast cars, fast motorcyles, anything that gets the adrenaline pumping was what he lived for. Besides fixing cars, any car or truck, he is my personal MacGuyver. If it needs to be fixed, he'll figure it out. He's done electrical, construction, plumbing, and roofing.. He wears Carhartt jeans, flannel shirts, sips bourbon, dips Copenhagen, and loves Country music. I'm not a frills and lace kind of gal. I'm not into retail therapy and I don't have a closet full of shoes.I don't do acrylic nails, or even paint my nails, my hair is almost always in it's typical low maintenance ponytail, and my makeup bag consists of department store basics that I probably got on sale. I can travel for a week with no ... read more

But as we go into Thanksgiving week, I'd like to challenge you with a question that Brian and I asked ourselves this week. What would it be like if we flipped the script?

What would that look like?               Like just about everyone else, the snow globe of our lives was shaken pretty good with the lockdowns and government response to Covid 19. UNLIKE many, however, we did not lose our jobs. We are considered an essential business, and were able to stay open. Yes, business is down because people are driving less, but that has given us the opportunity to have a little more time off than usual. To sleep in a little later, go home a little earlier. We've had the ... read more

Winter 2020

Winter 2020

By every method of measurement, 2020 has been an unusually turbulent year. From Covid-19 and the widespread changes to almost all aspects of everyday life, the unprecedented number of wildfires, civil unrest with much of it centered in Portland, murder hornets, and now predictions for a winter more volatile that we've seen in a few years. It seems like the hits just keep coming. You can minimize potential automotive issues over the winter by addressing some normal maintenance items and other specific things: Battery Tire pressure Wiper blades and fluid Engine oil Coolant levels and systems System checks Vehicle tune up Emergency kit One of the most important safety measures is a full systems check. "Inspect your headlights, taillights, turn signals, rear-window defrosters, heating system, seat belts, and electronics. If there are any burnt out bulbs or broken parts, get it fixed before you get in an accident. You may want to consider replacing bulbs if they are d ... read more
