STOP TEXTING!

STOP TEXTING!

Ok…I recently took my annual trek to Cedar Rapids, Iowa for business.  In my travels there is a lot of dashboard time for sure.  It’s a long ride.  During that ride I couldn’t help but notice the people that pass me by while looking DOWN at their phones!!  Going 75 miles an hour and just hoping like hell that the car is driving itself?  Really people?  Are you that crazy?  Not to mention the people flying by me with the phone up to their ear having just a great conversation with whomever and not really paying attention.  The SAME people that slam on their brakes because maybe they just noticed they need to stop!!!  I AM guilty of answering the phone in the car BUT only on the bluetooth and keeping it very short. I need to watch out for the people that just don’t care and think they are smart enough and alert enough to let the car drive itself.  PLEASE…watch what you’re doing.  It could be someones entire family that is paying attention and innocently heading somewhere and get hit by one of those drivers that just doesn’t care.

Ozzy…worth the wait

Well, it’s been 10 years since an Ozzy Osbourne release.  For some reason I don’t get too excited over a new release but the new Ozzy album “Ordinary Man” had me putting it on a thumb drive and listening (at a loud level) all the way home tonight on my 30 mile commute.  If you’ve…read more »

When will we hit “Double Nickels”?

When will we hit “Double Nickels”?

I recently put up a poll on our Facebook page regarding when you think will be the first day this year we hit 55 degrees.  Some interesting guesses.  It SEEMS like maybe August 12th?  That may be when the snow is completely gone. Now it’s my turn.  I think we may sneak close in March…read more »

It’s TAX Time

It’s TAX Time

OK…how do you plan your tax season?  I know a LOT of folks that wait till last minute.  Especially if they pay in.  I actually try to do mine right away.  If I have to pay in at least I know right away and I can prepare and pay it then toward the deadline.  I’d…read more »
