Your talent determines what you can do.

Your motivation determines how much you’re willing to do.

Your attitude determines how well you do it.

Tips, Tools, & Press Releases
When should I change my spark plugs?

For maximum fuel economy and peak engine performance, your spark plugs should be replaced every 30 months or 30,000 miles, for standard copper core spark plugs. 

If your vehicle is equipped with platinum or iridium tipped spark plug, they can be replaced approximately every 80,000 to 100,000 miles.
While you are waiting for a professional to arrive to help with your flood, you can do the following to get started:
~ Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting
~ Turn air conditioning on for maximum drying in summer
~ Remove colored rugs from wet carpeting
~ Remove art and take to a safe, dry place
~ Gather loose items from floors
The screams you’re hearing on the ground and around the park near Tower of Terror in Disney's Hollywood Studios aren’t real.

Sure, some of them are, but the majority of what you hear has been pre-recorded.
Boost your energy!

Getting in ANY form of exercise for at least 10 minutes in the morning will boost your energy for the rest of the day.
(Bonus – studies show that a 20 minute morning walk can reduce blood pressure).

Travel Oregon
 Oregon has a “Banana Belt?”

Oh yes, it’s true! Oregon’s South Coast is a near-tropical land, but you won’t find any pineapples, mangoes or papayas growing from the ground. Travel to the Brookings area to find soaring giant redwood trees and a wonderful collection of state parks.

In summer — when the surf and sand glisten and glimmer — some Oregon beaches seem all yours to wander and then wonder: how could so much beauty be found in one state park?
