WRC : ELFYN 'THE WELSH DRAGON' EVANS TORCHED SWEDEN!

He grabbed it, but not before Toyota Gazoo Racing's Elfyn Evans blazed a fiery trail of scintillating speed and exaggerated commitment. Evans - The Welsh Dragon - was in sublime form. He led the rally from Day 1 and [...]

Those "Nasty" People

I have read several conversations recently on social media regarding the physical state of our communities and the environment in which people live and work.

Tanak cannot afford another DNF. Who will rise? Who will [...]

Home Care - Cleaning options that won't break the bank!

If you are like me, you might find it a challenge to keep your home as pristine as you would like especially when you have children.  The highly trafficked areas such as the kitchen and bathrooms are especially troublesome. It seems as if despite your best efforts, you are always cleaning those areas constantly. Of course it is imperative that we keep our homes clean to preserve our health as many viruses live on surfaces at least for a while and [...]
