One of the neatest things in the world is attitudes. They are as different as night and day and come and go about as often. I get a kick out of attitudes. If you want to have some fun, and I think most people do, get on facebook or social media and post something controversial, then just set ...

My Dad, My Hero

No, this isn't an article on politics. This one's about driving. I'll be the first to admit I'm not the world's greatest driver. I attribute this to my short attention plan. You see, no one designs cars with enough mirrows or window space to see everything going on around you. Last week I had ...
