Spring showers may be necessary to bring the flowers, but they certainly can create havoc on the roads in the process. Flash floods, muddy terrain, and hydroplaning (just to name a few) are part and parcel of this ebb and flow of seasonal change. A few important tips to keep you safe on the road- …

Time to buy (the safest) new car!

February 15th is right around the corner! This is the earliest date of tax returns for 2017.

Brrrrrrr! Baby, It’s cold outside!

Many of us woke up this morning to a whopping 4 degrees outside! Temperatures were even lower in some places. With the cold, snowy weather comes new hazards to look out for and protect against. Typically, we remember our coats and scarves (or, if we do forget them, we run back in for them pretty …

For times gone by, my dear, for times gone by.

It is that time of year, again; time to say farewell to the old and welcome in the new. While I, personally, do not like to make New Year’s resolutions (which I feel sets one up to fail), I do like to take a moment to reflect on the passing year and consider my hopes and …
