A Luxury Apartment Close to the College

My husband applied for a job at Georgia Tech, and we were both extremely excited when he got it. It did mean we had to move from Maine to Georgia, but this was something I was eagerly looking forward to. I knew we did not have a lot of time to do this since they wanted him to start immediately. That is just one of the advantages of living in an apartment, because we didn’t have to deal with selling a house. I did a search for Midtown West apartments in Atlanta because I wanted to get the process started as quickly as possible.

I wanted to get an apartment that is close to his new job because neither one of us wanted him to have a long commute time. I was very fortunate in finding the 935M apartments on my first try. These are very chic apartments that are nicer than what I thought they would be.…

I Found a New Website That is Fun to Read

I like to learn new things. I like trivia, health tips, food ideas and scientific tidbits of information. Some of the stuff I use in daily life. Some of it is just knowing things to bring up in conversation. I pick up a lot of tips, tricks and trends at Infoboil. It is a really interesting website. It is a website that has panels to choose from that provides info on just about any subject. I saw one this morning about a vegetarian burger that looks like real meat. It is supposed to taste like meat too. Our current protein system is not really sustainable for the number of people on earth, so this could be a viable and tasty alternative.

There is a ton of information like that at the Infoboil website. I admit to spending a little too much time reading tips, tricks and trends at Infoboil. You know how you spend too much time on your social media pages and then feel like you just wasted a big chunk of time? Well, if you hang around reading stuff at Infoboil, you don’t feel like you wasted time. You actually learn stuff.…

Picking a Better Limo Company for a Fun, Clean and Comfortable Ride

You can use a party bus to get you and your group from one place to another such as going to a concert or game. However, you can also use one as a rolling party. You pick a route and your party is contained on the bus and just stays on the move. I would suggest you get the big bus from Diamond Party Bus in Toronto if you are going to do that. It is the one with the bathroom in it. You know that a bathroom is needed for any sort of party. The nice thing about a party bus is that when you rent one it comes with a professional driver, and it is cleaned to feel like you are the first customer to use it.

I have seen some limo companies that do not take excellent care of their fleet. You really need to rent from a place that takes pride in their fleet of limos whether the limo is a big sedan, SUV, stretch limo or a party bus.…

Making My Party Bus Dream a Reality

People take buses all the time. Some people use their smartphones while the riding on the bus. Other people read the newspaper. Other people take in the scenery and daydream. That’s what I love to do while I’m riding the bus. Last night on the way home from work, I found myself daydreaming about being on a party bus rather than the regular city bus. In my daydream, a stranger handed me a business card that had visite our party buses printed on it. I remember that phrase so vividly, because it reminded me of the way some words are spelled differently in Toronto.

My vision stuck with me when I got home. I immediately went online and started looking at party buses in the area.…

Get the Look You Want and Stop Worrying About the Rest

I am happy to have a pretty face. Seriously, I never take it for granted. I’m not being vain. I have smooth skin, a deep brown color to my eyes and good symmetry. Plus, I have great teeth. However, the girls in my family all have very short and thin eyelashes. And all of us have tried various things to get them to look longer and fuller. I have tried every mascara and even tried false eyelashes. I heard about how I could buy Careprost online and how it helps to grow longer and thicker eyelashes.

When you first started to read this, I imagine you might have thought me to be a bit arrogant saying I have a pretty face. Then you saw I have an issue with my looks that troubles me. I say that to point out that I think that all of us girls have things we like and do not like about our looks.…

Started to Look for a House

I have decided that I am going to look for a house, but of necessity it would have to be a small one. Of course this makes a good bit of sense for me, since I could get up the down payment for a small house, especially if it was not in perfect shape. At any rate I realize that this is not that simple of a process and I wonder whether or not you need to enlist the services of a realtor for Denver to make it simpler. Obviously that is going to cost you some money, but if someone really knows what they are doing that is going to make the whole thing a lot easier and in theory they might save you a bit of money. In fact you know that they are going to want to come out of the process with a profit, this is America and we believe in Capitalism with a big C.

At any rate I have decided that renting is just a big waste of money. All of the apartments I see on the market are wildly overpriced to start with.…

Celebrating the 350 part #1: Chevrolet 350 V8

THE POWERPLANT (Part 1 of 2)

One of the great paradoxes of automotive history is that while the Ford Motor Company was the first mass manufacturer to produce affordable V8-powered cars, it is the Chevrolet small-block V8 that has gone on to become the most famous and loved of all eight-cylinder engines.

In naming the 10 best engines in history, Ward’s AutoWorld found a place for the Ford side-valve flathead V8 but the only postwar V8 from Detroit to get a spot was the Chevrolet 350 cubic-inch unit.

The postwar boom in the US created a huge proliferation of new models and, by the mid-1960s, what became known as the horsepower race. In our current era where the same basic engine might be found in Peugeots, Citroëns and the Australian Ford Territory, it is difficult to grasp the fact that General Motors was so rich that most of its divisions had a unique range of V8s and in multiple variants.

When the Chevrolet Division introduced the 350ci V8, Buick had a 340 (as well as its 300, 400 and 430), Oldsmobile had a 330 (plus its own 400 and a 425), Chevy’s closest sibling Pontiac had a 326 (and yet another 400 and its 428) while GM’s flagship brand Cadillac had a solitary 429.

None of these engines could match the production life of the Chevy 350 which made its debut in the 1967 Camaro 350SS, tasked with the challenge of stealing sales from the phenomenally successful Mustang.

Although replaced by the Generation II LT and Generation III LS engines in the 1990s, it was not discontinued until 2003. And it remains in production in Mexico as a crate unit for Chevrolet Performance.

To understand the significance of the 350 it is necessary to look at the history of Chevy’s small-block V8.

High-compression V8 engines had been a key element in GM’s postwar plan. Alfred P. Sloan Jr, who effectively ran the corporation from 1923 (as President) to 1956 when he finally retired as Chairman of the Board, wrote in My Years with General Motors: “At the close of World War II we made the projection that for an indefinite period the principal attractions of the product would be appearance, automatic transmissions and high-compression engines, in that order; and that has been the case.”

While Cadillac had always been GM’s top brand, Oldsmobile was usually the one where new engineering was first applied. So it made sense for the high-compression V8 engines to make their 1948 debut in both marques for model year 1949. The chief designer of the Cadillac engine was Ed Cole (see below).

In 1952 Cole was transferred to Chevrolet Division where the engineers were already at work on a new high-compression V8 intended for the Corvette. The view at the time was that without a powerful V8 engine the model would have to be discontinued as the ‘stove-bolt’ 165hp straight-six …

Used Car Inspection Tips

When buying a used car, a vehicle inspection is an important part of the buying process

It can seem confusing at first. Most likely because you just don’t know what you look out for. This post really goes out to anybody inspecting a car.

You can be a guy who is planing on flipping a car or just a stay at home mom looking to buy a new used car. The video above will run through the main points on what to look for when buying a used car.

The more you do these the easier they will be come in performing.
What To Look For on The Body When Inspecting a Used Car

Body color paint match (do the panels match or do you see significant color difference?)

Do the body panels align up flush? Are they uneven?

Do your doors, hood and trunk open and close easily without sagging or forced to close shut?

Is your frame crinkled anywhere? do you see any paint cracking or chipped on the frame?

Did you check your trunk floor pan for rear damage?
Check the windshield, any small cracks? (forgot to mention this in the video)

Engine Inspection

Are all of the fluids filled?

Do you notice any leaks besides the Air Conditioning water that’s coming from condensation (which is normal)?

How does your oil look? Is it milky looking? Is it very dark and mucky?
Do you have enough water in your radiator? Do you see oil spots in it? Does it look milky?

Did you check your transmission fluid? It should have a reddish tint to the transmission oil.

Do you see a lot of metallic filings in your trans fluid? Not a bad thing, but an indicator that you need to really take it for a good test drive to make sure that the car is shifting okay.

Be sure to run it through all gears. All you may have to do is change your filter and oil. The same goes with engine oil. If you don’t see any blue/white smoke from the tailpipe, your in good shape.

Interior Inspection

Check all electrical buttons. Be sure to check all the doors and buttons.
Check all lights in the car, engine lights in dash, dome lights, high and low beam, signals and hazards.

Turn your AC on and run through all levels. Check your radio, electric antenna if equipped.

Check The Seats, to they all adjust ok?

Check for flooding ( forgot to mention this in the video) do you smell mildew? how is the carpet? is it damp in areas?

Check the overall condition of the gas, clutch and brake pedals. Are they worn or do they look normal?

CarFax and Basic Paper Work Inspection

I didn’t cover this in the video. I plan on making a video exclusively …
