My First Car – Do You Remember Yours?

My actual first car was a 1966 Chrysler Newport. But after I purchased it without a battery, I parked it for several months. When I finally was able to drive it (for 3 blocks) I noticed a freeze plug had blown, so I junked it... which is why I really consider this my first car:

Paczki Day Is Back

Paczki Day is March 4 (or Fat Tuesday). Last year I wrote a blog about Paczki Day, and how I had such a hard time finding Paczkis (pronounced POONCH-key) in this area. This year, they are closer than I had imagined. The County Market at 24th and Spring in Quincy has Paczkis!

Field Trip

Me and the rest of the sales staff are taking a day out for "training" later this month, so I have marked that day on my calendar "Field Trip."

What Time Is It?
