Five Ways To Bond With The Father Figures In Your Life For Father’s Day

Five Ways To Bond With The Father Figures In Your Life For Father’s Day

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, some families spent little time together. So many fathers and their children were crazy busy with work, with school, with church commitments, and hobbies. After Shelter-In-Place orders, the world, as you know, got a whole lot quieter. Yes, it’s been hard, but the time spent at home with loved ones has also been a blessing. It has given us time together, but in an unhurried and less-chaotic sense.  That is why for our June blog, we want to celebrate our Fathers by listing five ways to bond with the father figures in your life for Father’s Day. Fathers are important, and we found a touching TED Talk that brings that point home: <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Eu22Wgu98VE" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> Did you shed a tear watching the video?

Why You Should Take Care Of Your Mom’s Car For Mother’s Day

Why You Should Take Care Of Your Mom’s Car For Mother’s Day

There are many ways you can show your Mother's love on Mother's day; here are a few ideas to help make her day special. The gift of a clean car is one kind and generous act that your mom or the Mother of your children won't soon forget. Something as simple as a vacuum, wipe down, and a new air freshener is a wonderful gesture to show how much you care. To take it one step further, scheduling a detail is over the top exciting, and the feeling your mom will get when she climbs into her rejuvenated car will keep her feeling special for a long time to come.  Another idea is to buy her a car wash pass. Even though this might not seem like a romantic gift, it will help her take the time for the carwash. This will give her the feeling of being thought of and loved for many months to come. This is a very thoughtful gesture and is a gift that keeps on giving!  Tinting her windows is an excellent gift. Not only does it help block out the heat and UV rays, tinted windows g ... read more

Why Spring Is The Perfect Time To Change Your Tires

Why Spring Is The Perfect Time To Change Your Tires

When it comes to a change in the weather, we often think of longer days and warmer weather, looking forward to trips to the beach and other road trip adventures. If adventures like this are on your to-do list, then it might be a good time to think about your tires. Did you put on winter tires this fall? If so, it is time to go back to an all-season tire. Unfortunately, driving on the same tires year-round can cause all sorts of issues, which is why it is important to change out your tires seasonally.  First of all, if you have studded tires or winter tires, the studs will cause reduced fuel economy and damage the roadway in addition to wearing down the metal studs, rendering them less likely to make it through another season. Each type of tire is made with different rubber compounds. Winter tires are softer, which means they will wear much faster than an all-season, that is engineered with a rubber compound that will hold up to hotter temperatures on the road.
