3 Dead In Ariz. Motorcycle Crash At Least 8 Motorcycles Involved In Crash That Left 6 People Injured, Police Say

I'm re-posting this tragic story after reading about it on Mr. Motorcycle's blog. It's important, please read and pay attention on the road people!

(Thank's Mark for posting this story in the first place and bringing it to our attention.)

PHOENIX -- At least three people are dead after a sanitation truck collided with eight motorcycles on the Carefree Highway near 27th Avenue, police said.

The motorcycle riders involved in the accident were part of Phoenix MC Kruzer’s.
An off-duty fire captain, Ernie Lizarraga, a 22-year veteran on the Phoenix Fire Department force, was among those critically injured in the crash.

Police said at least eight motorcycles on a group ride had stopped at a red light on the Carefree Highway when they were hit from behind by the sanitation truck. The truck then caught on fire, officers said. (story continued here)
 My thoughts go out to those families who lost a loved one in this terrible crash.


Car Insurance Ads

Have you noticed how we are almost constantly bombarded with advertisements for auto insurance these days? These ads tell us "save up to $400.00 per year in car insurance", or "It's so easy a caveman can do it"...seriously? What does a caveman have to do with car insurance or a Gecko even? The wheel hadn't even been invented when cavemen were around, let alone a car! And last time I checked, a Gecko can't drive!

But, we live in a litigious society, everyone is sue happy, so insurance is vital if you are going to drive! Finding auto insurance quotes can be extremely time consuming though...where do we start? Well, I'll provide you with a good starting point for your car insurance quest! Just click the highlighted, linked text and see if Auto Insurance Center meets your needs.

Here is a great song from Lifehouse that is so poignant for a parent with teen drivers, I cried when I watched it the first few times...then I made my teens watch it...and I cried again!


Stainless Steal Car?...Nope, It's White Gold!

Hi Everyone,

Sorry for the lack of posts recently, I'm working on a new "project" and it has been keeping me very busy! I will tell you all about it once I have it in place.

My friend Steve, sent me an email recently, featuring this's so unique I just had to share it with my readers!

Recession? What recession?
So, it seems that this "global recession" 
has not impacted negatively on everyone. 
Check this out! 
It's a Mercedes Benz owned by an Abu Dhabi 
oil billionaire (naturally).

Featuring the newly developed V10 quad turbo 
with 1,600 horsepower and 2800nm of torque 
0-100km/h in less than 2secs, 
running on biofuel. 

That is NOT stainless steel, it is WHITE GOLD!   
I'm sure you'll sleep better tonight, knowing that the 
exorbitant cost you're paying for petrol these days are 
at least going to a good cause...

I hope all of you are happy and healthy!
