WHAT WOULD THE BUDDHA DO?

February 23, 2015 Written by Spencer McDonald
As we all become caught up in the business of life and perceived need to hurry, accomplish, arrive on time; and as we find ourselves powerless at times and disrespected at others, useful to stop and think, what might the Buddha do?  Or Jesus, or Mohammed the prophet.  What would…

DISTRACTED DRIVING DETOX

December 22, 2014 Written by Spencer McDonald
When I was young, we had a rotary telephone on the kitchen counter (for those of you under 40, you may have seen one of these babies in a museum!).  When someone wanted to get in touch, they called and the phone rang.  If no one was home, the caller…

WINTER CONTROL DRIVING SKILLS

November 25, 2014 Written by Spencer McDonald
"Slip sliding away, slip sliding away.  You know the nearer your destination, the more you slip slide away." Paul Simon sang it in 1977 (there I go dating myself again) and it's still happening every winter.  But with some simple techniques and a bit of practise you can eliminate that…

September 3, 2014 Written by Spencer McDonald

DRIVING OUT OF THE WORLD OF SHOULD!

June 2, 2014 Written by Spencer McDonald
Feature Article Art Linkletter, the entertainer, said, "If you change your attitude you will change your life."

CULTURE SHOCK & AN ENCOUNTER WITH THE CURB!

April 28, 2014 Written by Spencer McDonald
Ah Mexico; sun, sand, surf and tequila. Dancing in the Drunken Duck Bar... Oh yes, and Mexican public transportation. YIKES! After twenty-something years of teaching from the passenger seat of everything from heavy trucks and fire apparatus to police cars and pick-up trucks, I have developed a pretty good sense…

DRIVERS BEWARE: MOTORCYCLE SEASON IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER!

March 31, 2014 Written by Spencer McDonald
Feature Article Motorcycles are the safest vehicles on the road right up until the point of impact. I have been a rider since 1972 and enjoyed riding everything from mini bikes with lawnmower engines to 100 plus horsepower sport and touring bikes. I love my motorcycles: my BMW 1200RT is…
