12 Winter Driving Tips and Myths

I though I would take this opportunity, in the midst of the pounding much of the Country is taking from mother nature, to write about winter weather driving. Living in the northeast, winter weather driving is something that I’m all too familiar with, and happen to actually enjoy. It’s not for everyone, but with some advice and some practice, you can do it, and hopefully get to your destination with no problem at all.

3M’s Paint Defender System is an Amazing Way to Protect Your Car

If paint chips from rocks flying up from the car in front of you, salt flying at your car as you travel along the highway, or any other hazard out there on the road today causes you to lose sleep at night, sleep tight after this.

New from 3M, the people who originally brought you the expensive and hard to install film protection system seen mostly on high end cars, comes an inexpensive, easy to install system we can all use to protect our vehicles finish.

This system installs in only about 30 minutes and requires almost no skill at all to apply. It sprays on! How easy is that? Even better, if the film begins to show signs of wear, simply peel it off and reapply.

It’s pretty much fool proof as long as you follow the incredible simple directions that come with the kit, and that are demonstrated in the video below.

Purchase your kit from Amazon today!

Think about it. Your car cost you how much? This costs $44.99 for paint protection that actually works, from a company that’s not some fly by night operation.

Give it a try. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

Are Cell Phone Cameras Making Crap Out of Our Memories?

It’s the age of the cell phone camera. Ok, Smartphone if you want to sound current. We can capture every moment we experience, no matter where, no matter when. What could be bad about that? Not a thing, right? Wrong.

Cell phones are among us. Everywhere. They’re not leaving, nor should they (well maybe, but that’s really a conversation for another time). They’re only becoming more and more capable as time goes by, letting us make calls, take pictures, send messages, write email, get directions, and a whole bucket full of other crap that somehow we managed to do in some other way, before the Smartphone. But the focus here is on the pictures part.

Feeding The Hungry, Nourishing The Soul. Watch This Video.

If you don’t do anything else today, watch this video. It’s worth the few minutes of your day to get some real perspective on life. That’s all I’ll say about it, if nothing else, take something away with you from this video.

YouTube – Feeding The Hungry, Nourishing The Soul

If you have time, take a look at the original article on CNN.com here

Excerpt:

Narayanan Krishnan was a bright, young, award-winning chef with a five-star hotel group, short-listed for an elite job in Switzerland. But a quick family visit home before heading to Europe changed everything.

“I saw a very old man eating his own human waste for food,” Krishnan said. “It really hurt me so much. I was literally shocked for a second. After that, I started feeding that man and decided this is what I should do the rest of my lifetime.”
