Hands Free in Your Car with Parrot

Hands Free in Your Car with Parrot

While many new cars are set up to connect via Bluetooth to our smartphones, we don’t all drive brand new cars. You can still be safer in your car by using a simple hands free device when making or receiving phone calls. My last car (2002 Lexus LS) did not have the ability to connect with my phone, my latest car I bought last week (2009 Chrysler Sebring) had an option for … Continue Reading →
Chevy Keys to the City – St. Charles, Missouri

Chevy Keys to the City – St. Charles, Missouri

Last week I had a chance to tool around town in a 2013 Chevy Malibu Eco. Hubby and I both liked this latest version of the Malibu – we actually had a early 90’s Malibu several years ago and the style has changed. Regardless of the style change, we found it still to be a comfortably sized car for a family and still something that looked a little on the … Continue Reading →
Chevy Keys to the City

Chevy Keys to the City

This week Chevy is helping me with Keys to St. Louis. This morning they brought me a 2013 Chevy Malibu Eco car to drive around St. Louis for the week. I’ll be sharing some of the fun things to do in my area of the St. Louis metro area. If you live here, hopefully you will find something new to do. If you do not live in St. Louis hopefully … Continue Reading →
Check Your Car Battery Now

Check Your Car Battery Now

Winter is quickly approaching. Hubby says it is important to check your car battery soon. Extreme temperatures are hard on a battery and you do not want to wake up to a dead battery on a cold and wintry morning. Take your car to your local dealer, independent, or many auto parts stores to have them test it. You can call ahead first and see if they offer free battery testing or … Continue Reading →
Febreze Car Vent Clips

Febreze Car Vent Clips

Need to freshen up the smell inside your car? This little Febreze Car Vent Clips are nice and last about a month. Just like the rest of the Febreze items I have tried, they really do work quite well. Febreze sent me one to try out – you can find out more and see the scents on their site. Activate the Febreze Car Vent Clips You have to activate the … Continue Reading →
Keeping your car healthy in the heat wave

Keeping your car healthy in the heat wave

We are definitely in the middle of a heat wave over much of the United States right now. Here in St. Louis we have set record highs and the forecast is still going to be in the 100s the next week or so. Ugh. Not only is this rough on people, but it can also be really hard on our cars. Most overheating problems in cars are due to a … Continue Reading →
Just dreaming of my new Lexus

Just dreaming of my new Lexus

Lexus LS600h is my dream car – I love my LS430, but the new LS600h is SO beautiful and has so many bells and whistles, and yes I love those. The “h” stands for hybrid by the way – I might as well be green when I dream.  Unless I win the lottery sometime soon I think it will be a long time before I get something like this – … Continue Reading →
Banning Cell Phones in Cars

Banning Cell Phones in Cars

Honestly, I do not think they will be able to pass a law banning the use of all cell phones and other devices (except GPS) in cars. That industry is huge and has a ton of lobbyists I am sure fighting to keep a ban like this from happening. Should it be a law? In my opinion, no. Should people pay more attention while driving? In my opinion, yes. Just … Continue Reading →
Kia Optima Hybrid

Kia Optima Hybrid

The 2011 Kia Optima Hybrid is a sharp looking car and it starts at just $26,500 which is really reasonable for a midsize sedan hybrid. I have not owned a Kia myself, but over the last few years I have seen and heard quite a lot about them and it is a car I would consider. Even Hubby, who is a bit of a car snob, mentioned today that he … Continue Reading →
Young Drivers and Being Prepared on the Road

Young Drivers and Being Prepared on the Road

So Taylor turned 16 this past December and is out on the road by himself sometimes. Granted right now it is not that far from home, but as he gets older he will go farther I’m sure. That’s what I did. I also have a nephew who started driving a little later and is now in college. He hasn’t taken his car with him to school yet, but I have … Continue Reading →
