Staying Warm in Winter

Staying Warm in Winter

Photo by @shawnanggg on Unsplash   While it doesn't seem like the greatest idea to turn on your A/C in freezing temperatures, it can benefit your A/C system's life and function. One of the leading issues is the build-up of mold and bacteria due to condensation. Another issue is the breakdown of your A/C system caused by an extended period of time without use. To avoid these issues and further damage that can lead to costly repairs, we recommend running your A/C on full-cold for about 10-15 minutes every couple of weeks. Running your A/C this way will ensure the liquids flow properly and that the moving parts are thoroughly lubricated.    Using your A/C system simultaneously as your heating system will provide c ... read more

Photo by Colin Lloyd on Unsplash   Summer is here in full, finally. Join us as we look ahead to the importance of seasonal tires on your car, with some insight on the industry’s best all-season tires! The tires on your car are as significant as the shoes you wear on your feet. If you clog in stilettos, you're going to mangle your toes. If you never change your socks, you're going to infect your feet and become ill. The rest of your body depends on wearing sensible shoes.   Shoes and tires are similar in that depending on the shoe we wear, the higher performance and safety our bodies will get out of them. The same way we invest in shoes, we all should be doing the same for our tir ... read more

Bringing the Romance (With a Pandemic On)

Bringing the Romance (With a Pandemic On)

Photo by Satya Tiwari on Pixabay   It’s a shame, but this might be one of the least enthusiastic Valentine’s Days on record, with the pandemic and so much in turmoil right now. The most common advice for how to proceed is to stay at home. But there isn’t much advice about what to do to keep spirits up when we’ve spent so long cooped up together that we have started to lose sight of each other.   It’s easy to become complacent in a situation like a pandemic. Some rules structure what you can and can’t do, restrictions on things you might ordinarily do, and cautions and flags all through something as simple as a shopping trip.   But please remember that it is vitally important to keep some semblance of an occasion such as St. Valentine’s Day going. It’s a gauge by which couples measure the interest their ... read more

What Is “Concierge Service” & How It Makes A Difference To YOU!

What Is “Concierge Service” & How It Makes A Difference To YOU!

Life can be hectic. As we approach the holidays, it’s even harder to get the simplest things done. It would be so much better, for instance, if refuse service workers moved gently and quietly into your neighborhood, collecting your garbage not from the curb but where you store your bins, and sanitized the bins before they left.    That’s a level of service we are told is impossible, but it's only impossible because government regulation of sanitation services prevents a higher level of service for those willing to pay a premium. Which is too bad, because I imagine there’s a market out there for people who would prefer to pay a bit more to not have to handle waste in their busy daily lives and bring it to the curb on time.   Sometimes, it’s not convenient to bring your vehicle in. You would have to budget time to wait if there’s a line, and the time necessary to place your order with a shop. And then to arrange a rental car or a loaner ca ... read more

Gratitude For Our Cars

Gratitude For Our Cars

It’s November, and this year is almost at a close. In a month, most of us will sit down to the traditional Thanksgiving roast turkey feast. Will rub shoulders with family we haven’t seen all summer, watching football and films, and making plans for Christmas together. Some of our most vulnerable family will have to miss it this year, making it for many people, the first Thanksgiving in memory they’ve not been able to have some family near. In just eight more days, it will have been only 400 years since European pilgrims on board the Mayflower first looked across th horizon at the shores of Cape Cod. To mark the moment in thanks to God for getting them through an awful 65-day nightmare of rough seas and the ship being tossed about that included a damaged mast halfway across the Atlantic ocean,  they read out Psalm 100 in unison.  Thanksgiving is a time of reconciliation and of forgiveness in our families, and a time to reflect on the graces we have been sho ... read more
