• Guidelines for riding a motorcycle safely

    •Be visible

    •Remember that motorists often have trouble seeing motorcycles and reacting in time.

    •Make sure your headlights work and are on day and night.

    •Use reflective strips or decals on your clothing and on your motorcycle.

    •Be aware of the blind spots cars and trucks have.

    •Flash your brake light when you are slowing down and before stopping.

    ªIf a motorist doesn’t see you, don’t be afraid to use your horn.

    Dress safely

  • How did he do that?
  • Options for grilling flavors can happen on the stove

    Hello once again my friends. Can it be that we have already reached summer? Hot weather, bugs and high humidity.

    I know people say time goes by faster the older we get but this is ridiculous. Oh well, it’s here and it’s up to us to make the most of it.

    When we think of summer food invariably we think of grilling. I do think this has changed somewhat as people tend to grill more during the winter now than they did years ago but still, the prevailing thought is grilling.
