The first brand is my choice of vehicles. I am a Chevy lover but will go one step further and say Chevy SUVs. I have just bought my third generation Tahoe, picked it up Friday. We never buy new cars, either 1 or 2 years old, we let someone else take the initial hit on value! This is my new Chevy ...
And then there were two! Finlay arrived just 6 months ago and he's a hunting dog, always on the go. It seemed a logical thing to find him a sparring partner, or maybe better said a running partner.

In July we got a new puppy and I diliberately took 3/4 months off work, referring out potential clients, only servicing those already in contract with me.I knew I had to maintain certain things or I would suffer from not doing well next year.Posting to my blog is a primary way for me to get new c...
Winter is here, with 8-10 inches of snow on the ground on top of last weeks 5 inches, there's more in the forecast. Our new pup Finlay is loving the snow, as you can see he has his head in the snow and his cone, learning to use it to scoop the snow! Puppy antics!This week he cannot enjoy it much ...
