  • Towing and Trailering Fundamentals to Help You Tow Like a Pro

    While many truck and SUV owners will never use their powerful vehicles for hauling stuff, that almost seems like a shame.

  • How to Plan a Magical Father and Son Disney World Guys Getaway

    Planning a father and son guys getaway vacation can be a challenge.  On one hand, you have to pick a destination that will hold the attention of an active boy.

There are thrilling theme park rides, giant water parks, mouth-watering cuisine, sports, boats, monorails, swimming pools, and the list goes on.

  • Biena Chickpea Snacks - A Protein Packed Healthier Snack

    When I first got contacted by the folks at Biena I thought this was a joke - flavored chickpea snacks? Seriously? While I like hummus and I enjoy garbanzo beans when I can find them in a salad bar. However, not once had I ever thought of them as a snack food tossed in flavors like Habanero and Rockin' Ranch... much less Girl Scout Thin Mint! Yet here we are. I have a dozen or so bags on my table and I can't decide which one I like best.

Let's take a look at a few of these myths as well as some treatments that will actually work to help you last longer.

  • At the BMW Performance Center You Will Learn How to REALLY Drive

    I learned more about the dynamics of a performance automobile in three hours at the BMW Performance Center than I think I have in the past 20 years of simply driving on my own. Once you pass "drivers ed" in high school, most guys simply learn from trial and error. Unfortunately, that can be a very expensive and painful way to learn - and most likely you still will not have proper techniques. I am on a mission to break that pattern, so BMW invited me out to their school for the day. What I discovered there was far more than just the "driving experience" that I expected.

  • Understanding British Business Customs and Work Etiquette

Sure, there were different accents and some humor that missed the mark for both parties. However, there were some subtle business culture differences between our two cultures.

  • Tips To Avoid Abusing the Privilege of Legal Marijuana

    The annual marijuana celebration "4/20" is this week on April 20. Unlike past years, this year sees the addition of several new states where the drug is now legal for adult recreational use. These include my home state of California where we're starting to see both the good - and bad of the policy shift. As someone who supports legalization, it's important to remember that just because something is legal, it is still a privilege. Don't abuse it! That includes knowing your physical and mental limits as well as when and where to enjoy it responsibly.
