Looking for Winter Break Fun: We've Got You Covered!

NEED ACTIVITIES FOR WINTER BREAK? WE GOT YA COVERED! Nothing drives me more crazy than having a houseful of kids who complain they are bored during the winter break. I also tell them there's a room they can pick up or reading they can do and then I get the eyerolls. So after all the cleaning is done we still have a couple of weeks off and I know it's important for children to get a break from all the work they do at school, the tutoring sessions, the lessons and the extracurricular sports they do. After a tiring routine,...

It is all too easy to get wrapped up in the excitement...

Visit Palm Spring: A Review of the Volkswagen Tiguan

Newly designed for 2019, the Volkswagen Tiguan is an ideal compact SUV with more room than ever. It has a simple but stylistic design is appealing. Test driving the 2019 Tiguan was a joy as well.
