This Old Truck…

Old green chevy truck

The old 1956 Chevy truck had become just part of the landscape as the school bus chugged up the hill to my house every school day of my life. Then one day it was gone. The hole it left in the vacant lot was noticed by every kid on the bus and it was all we could talk about for the next half hour. As the bus rumbled to a stop near my driveway, the mystery was suddenly solved. There, in my yard, was the rusted hulk of that fantastic truck. Over the next few years, my father and I would work nearly every day on that truck and when I graduated from high school, I was the proud owner of a completely restored 1956 Chevrolet 3100 Pickup.

How A Lung Scan Can Detect Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is one of the most preventable yet one of the most deadly types of cancer in the world. In order to reduce your risk of getting lung cancer significantly: Do Not Smoke Cigarettes! Ever! And, if you do smoke now, STOP! Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States, among both men and women.

Who Needs A Business Lawyer?

Business Lawyer Reviewing Paperwork

If you are an entrepreneur starting your own business, one of the last things you want to do is spend more money on someone that is not contributing to you making more money. Sometimes when people think about lawyers they think of someone in a bright colored suit, a slightly older car that bears a resemblance to their bright colored suits, and someone that can talk their way into or out of anything. If this is your perceptions I would be hesitant on hiring a lawyer to do anything for me as well. The truth is that you will need a lawyer at some point in your business venture. People are always looking for ways to get money and if they can sue you for something to get a little money, they will. This could be as petty as a small branding issue.

Winterizing Your Sprinkler System

The living landscape around your home needs water to survive and flourish, and relying completely on natural rainfall usually isn’t the best method for watering your gardens and lawns.
