Strange things happen to anyone who stays after dark at Aptera. 3 intrepid employees research the building's history in search of ghostly occupants.

So last week I got these Double-H Boots as a replacement for another pair of Double H Boots that started squeaking loudly within a week of purchasing them. That first pair I thought were just a defective pair--happens all the time and I loved the boots aside from the noise. Within a week, however, this second pair starts doing the same thing, so I contacted their customer service department. It's not that I mind driving 5 hours, one way to return this second pair where I purchased them; it's their logic as outlined in our final email exchange. #DoubleHBoots

As I was purging, sorting and organizing our basement clutter I saw my kids' first five years in the form of artwork, journals and keepsakes. It slowed me down for a bit. It actually grabbed me by the guts and knocked me on my seat. It was as if the hand turkeys and laminated lists of favorite ...

These Super Bowl commercial spots are really impressive. I'm not always a "drink-from-the-Kool-Aid-guy" but when you see stuff like this it's very inspiring. 
 
The ad spotlight is very much on #dads  for the #superbowl  later today. +Nissan will be running it's #Withdad  campaign, +Toyota USA will air it's #oneboldchoice  commercial, and of course +Dove Men +Care who has been a huge supporter of dads for a number of years will be spending over $4 million for their 30 second #realstrength    Global corporations are spending millions of dollars to highlight fathers during one of the most visible television events of the year. (And to those companies, others promoting the necessary role of fathers, we say thanks!) Watch all the commercials mentioned above in this +CNN

A handful of brands will portray dads as caring, loving parts of their children's lives in this year's Super Bowl, and fathers say it's about time!

Just bought a new Challenger from Chris Noble and of all the vehicles I've purchased in my life this was the smoothest experience. Chris was patient as I made a decision and was able to put a deal together. I also worked with Ray who was helpful in explaining everything to me when I traded in my other vehicle. When it came time to get the car, Chris offered to deliver it to me which was a big help. The car they found for me has been great, thus far, and I'm overall please. Thanks guys.
