Find Your Way To Grandma's House

<><>
Driving this holiday season can be stressful. According to a report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, driver inattention is the leading factor in all crashes. However, you can make your trip a little easier and a lot safer by using a navigation system.

On Star Turn-by-Turn Navigation is very simple to use. It's like having a personal map reader in your car. It's great to have a live person interact with you and download directions to your vehicle. Then you follow voice guided directions enhanced by GPS, turn-by-turn towards your destination. After that, there's no need to take your eyes off the road.

It's as simple as pushing a button and if you make a wrong turn, the system offers to automatically update your route. There's no more driving in circles. This way you can arrive safely at your destination.

Watch how fast a DRY Christmas tree will burst into flames!

From the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), this video demonstrates the how quickly the fire can develop when a DRY tree is exposed to an open flame.

Trees used indoors for the holidays account for approximately 400 fires annually, resulting in 10 deaths, 80 injuries and more than $15 million in property damage.

See http://fire.nist.gov/tree_fire.htm

New Beagle Puppy

Dsc00015 This is Pedro, our new Beagle puppy.  I haven't had a dog since 1998 when my 15 1/2 year old Dachshund passed away.  Just had to post this non-personal injury message to all  of you.

P.S. Happy Holidays to everyone!
