Lake Forest Events for July 4th!

Image by Jill Wellington from Pixabay    Happy birthday, America! Our annual summer celebration of the signing of the Declaration of Independence is at hand! We hope you and your family have a wonderful 4th of July!   Independence Day is many things to many Americans. It’s a wonderful teaching moment for the history buffs-- civics, the three-ring Democracy, the Boston Tea Party, Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, Crispus Attucks, Paul Revere, John Paul Jones, the crossing of the Delaware-- the list goes on and on.    For others, this is an important time to build character within our family. To the sons and daughters of liberty, it’s a time to reaffirm tha ... read more

Preventative Maintenance and your Subaru

Preventative Maintenance and your Subaru

Photo by Ronan Furuta on Unsplash   As most Subaru owners will attest, Subaru cars are cars you fall deeply in love with. They have so many wonderful features, and they seem to get more personal to us as the years roll by us. We would never hurt our cars intentionally.   But even people in love with their cars can be terrible about maintaining them. Especially when financial issues arise and you say fervent prayers that nothing will go wrong with the car you depend upon for your errands or your work. If you live paycheck to paycheck in this economy, it’s difficult to see the sense in taking a well-running car into a shop for minor issues and annoyances.   The most important underlying feature of preventive maintenance ... read more

Photo by Daniel Baird on Unsplash As the Spring begins to turn to summer, it’s a good time to consider if your Subaru’s air conditioning is working properly. Is it?   The Air Conditioning is not considered by many to be that important to the operation of your vehicle, because almost all Subarus run their Air Conditioning separate from their coolant system. But don't forget that the ac works with the defrost to keep the windows clear from steaming up. As Spring turns to Summer, this is the right time to act, before others need to-- especially during a period of supply chain woes.   To many, when money’s tight, it’s more of an inconvenience than a serious problem.

Helping Out When You Witness an Accident

Helping Out When You Witness an Accident

Photo by SD-Pictures on Pixabay Accident Will Happen Being safe on the road is hard enough when everything goes right. One of the biggest slow-down factors in an accident isn’t the obstructions on the road, which are usually cleared quickly; it’s the rubberneckers who want to see what happened and slow down to have a clear view.    While you don’t want to be a rubbernecker, you may have something valuable to offer the accident participants if you had a clear view of events, or have a camera that caught the event clearly. And there might be help that you can offer. If you have approved medical training, you might possibly help save a life. When the Worst Happens When the worst happens, it’s important to not let your own curiosity, interest, and opinions get in the way of helping people out of a bad situation.    Here are some protocols to fol ... read more

Spring Cleaning and your Subaru

Spring Cleaning and your Subaru

Photo by nick Kaufman on Unsplash Spring Cleaning time is here! March is here, and spring is on the way! It’s a good time for getting all of your ducks in a row. Taxes need to be calculated before April comes around. Also, it’s time for the house to be cleaned and de-cluttered -- that yearly ritual we call Spring Cleaning.   Now that the time has come for some spring cleaning, your Subbie would appreciate the same kind of attention! Giving it some love helps you as a driver– studies show that drivers are more careful with cars that they go through the trouble to clean. (Something to consider if you have a young driver in the home who borrows the car, and takes a few unnecessary risks!)   Here’s ... read more
