A Day in the Shop

Bryan and Eric inspecting the undercarriage

Firefighters are sometimes the unsung heroes in a community. They don't have their own comic books, they don't wear capes, and "Da-dada-DAA" theme music doesn't blast out the siren speakers on route to a rescue. However, firefighters are always there, day and night, to come save families from fires and cats from trees no matter what. It's nice, once in a while, to be reminded how necessary some people are to us...and we to them.

71st Anniversary of Pearl Harbor


I was born in a small town in the mid-west or was it a large city back east?
I can’t remember anymore.
Did you know me then?
I remember getting the chores done so I could go to the Saturday matinee or was it the baseball game.
I can’t remember anymore.
Did you know me then?
I remember the depression of the 1930’s and Papa working so hard to care for the family,
Anyway he could with odd jobs. I especially remember Mama making ends meet.
Papa was stern with the family but, Mama sweet Mama , what an angel she was.
Did you know me then?
I remember the swimming hole that we swam in, the bicycle rides, the picnics.
Did you know me then?
I remember school, Boy, do I remember School. I remember the soda shop and the good times after school.
I remember Mary the girl next door or was it Sue the girl I met at the dance.
I can’t remember anymore.
Did you know me then?
I remember people talking about the war in Europe,
But we’re in America why worry about what’s going on there.
This is America, the land of opportunity. We would never get involved in their problems.
Did you know me then?
I remember my brother Bob and I enlisting in the Navy together.
I remember Mama insisting that we serve on the same ship together, so we could take care of each other.
Did you know us then?
I remember our being assigned to the battleship USS Arizona, she was a beautiful sight to behold.
I remember when we were told we were to be home ported in Pearl Harbor, Honolulu.
Wow! Hula girls, grass skirts, beautiful beaches. Paradise, a dream come true.
Did you know us then?
I remember December 6, we all went to Bloch Arena to watch the battle of the music competition.
The music played by the bands was great.
Did you know us then?
I remember Sunday, December 7, not too much going on, just lying around.
Then that thundering noise that broke the Sunday morning quiet. It sounded like hundreds of aircraft.
I remember the explosion, my breath and whole being taken away from me.
Did you know me then?
I can hear Mama crying, Papa hasn’t cried yet.
I want to tell him “It’s ok to cry , Papa, every tear is a prayer”
We’ve been home ported here for a very long time.
I can see our buddies aboard other ships saluting as they pass by. I hope they see me returning their salute.
Do they know me?
My buddies and I are really at peace now. Pray for us!
Did you know me?
Then if you knew us, remember us always.
– John Vierra, Park Ranger, USS Arizona Memorial

May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, a national
initiative aimed at getting motorists and motorcyclists to "share the road" with each other. 

If you have any family or friends who drive motorcycles,
remind them to make themselves visible to other motorists to
 help prevent accidents. Also, keep an eye out for motorcycle drivers as well!
Motorcycle helmets saved 1,829 motorcyclists’ lives in 2008.

According to a PEMCO Insurance poll, eating was the

distraction that drivers cop to the most -- 65%. Fifty-eight

 percent said they talk on a cellphone while driving. Six-

percent admitted to reading a magazine or book while driving,
and we aren't talking audio books!

If you're waiting in rush hour traffic, this ought to make you feel a little luckier. The World's longest traffic hold-up was 110 miles long, between Paris and Lyon on the French Autoroute in 1980.

I wouldn't want to be stuck in that traffic jam!

If you happen to see a gasoline tanker filling the tanks at your local gas station, come back another day or go to a different station.
As the station’s underground tanks are being filled, the turbulence can stir up sediment. Sediment in your gas can clog fuel filters and fuel injectors, causing poor performance and possibly necessitating repairs.

Driving Tip

Watch out for deer and other large and small animals. If you see a deer approaching, slow down and flash your lights repeatedly. Often, the deer will run away. 
Also, if you see one deer, watch out for others close by--they often travel in pairs or groups.

On average, one person died in 2009

Don't top off.
  •  Even though you might want to round off your total, you’re actually just wasting gas. Gasoline is stored underground in a cool place, and when it heats up in your car (especially in the summer), it expands.
  • This could cause your tank to overflow if you top off too much, which means you’re pouring your gasoline, and money, down the drain.
Turn of your engine.
  • When you are sitting in standstill traffic, waiting in a slow drive-thru, or even just waiting for someone, you actually save gas by turning off your car. 
  • Idling your car for 10 seconds actually consumes more gas than turning off and restarting your car.
Pump up your tires.
  • Keeping your tires aired up to the proper level will reduce the contact area of your tire to the road and therefore reduce the friction.  This will slightly improve your gas mileage. 

Use the brake correctly.
  • A car consumes most gas as it accelerates. A moving car doesn't require much gasoline to keep moving.
  • In order to improve your mileage, you need to keep your car moving as smooth as possible. Speeding up and slamming on the breaks is really rough on your gasoline consumption.

Lighten the load.
  • Weighing your car down with unneeded items means that it requires more gasoline for your car to move.  Go ahead and take out some of the extra things you have stored in your trunk, but keep the spare tire!

We've had quite the blustery day! The weather for tomorrow calls for a warm sunny day, so hopefully we can open the doors of the shop to enjoy it without being blown away!

Our thoughts go out to those who were affected by the tornado this week.  Hopefully everyone will be able to recover safely.

Have a great evening, and watch your car door when you open it in a busy parking lot to prevent losing it to the car next to you!
