Kickstart My Heart - 08/28/10 09:23 AM
It's the week-end I wanted to do something a little more fun. I heard a song on the radio last night on my way home then really had me wanting to put the "Pedal to the Metal". :-) This got me thinking. We all have those songs that when they the come on the radio somehow our speedometers seem to creep up another 5-10 mp, and they are probably the same songs for many of us. But I'm not talking about that unconscious reflex. I'm talking that one special one, that when it comes on you knowingly want to floor it and pray there are no police nearby. I think we all have a song (2 comments)

Driving in Carova, NC Tip #1 Drop Your Tire Pressure - 08/13/10 11:40 AM
Running at full pressure will increase the odds of getting stuck (towing starts at $120 cash or check), and put more stress on your engine which can lead to a fire. Many believe that for your standard SUV 18psi will still be enough to do all your around town driving without inflating, but for the best beach driving you should be down to 15psi and maybe even 10psi. Aslo driving with too much pressure in your tires ruins the beach for everyine else. Many claim the the "wash board" effect is caused by tires with full air pressure bouncing on the (0 comments)

811: The Number To Call For A Different Situation - 08/11/10 06:13 AM
Since today is August 11 (8-11 day), I thought I would share a different phone number the is useful in North Carolina. It is 811, and it is an important number to call before digging across our state! You should call 811 before any digging project - large or small. One free call to 811 a few days prior to digging starts the process of having underground utility lines marked. This simple call reduces the chance of diggers unintentionally striking a utility line and causing inconvenient outages, harm to themselves or someone else, and/or repair costs.
