SUN DOGSI've written about this phenomena before but it's been awhile and those who have never lived in a Northern climate may not have ever heard of sun dogs before.Sun Dogs, they are bright and beautiful BUT you don't really want to see them.

DON'T CALL IT A MASTER!I was listening to a Nationally known Christian talk show on the Christian radio station I love (and often fill in on) and I learned something new. What do YOU call this room when showing a house?Well if you call it the Master bedroom your client may storm out in rage... of...
I would guess that nearly everyone who drives has thought about purchasing an electric or hybrid car. I have. My best friend has a hybrid Honda Prius and I really like it but I've also wondered about a fully electric vehicle.For over a year now or local electric  coop has been reporting on a Chev...

When you are not sure where you are going do you use Google Maps? I do. I also like to do a street view of my destinations address just so I know for sure which home I am heading for.Today I was headed to the geographical center of North America, Rugby North Dakota, North Dakota's 20th largest ci...
Why was Timmothy's car smoking?Because Dad did a stupid thing. He threw this under the hood to warm it up.Whether the idea was stupid or genius the placement of the heat gun was definitely stupid. When I laid it on the engine I failed to realize I put the hot metal end of the heat gun on top of t...
