The holidays are here, I know they are because I have begun my month long holiday baking. I am fortunate, my cousin starts Thanksgiving weekend. Being from the South, it is all about the food… and we sure do take that to heart.
You’re not 16 years old anymore. Speeding is dangerous; it wastes fuel and creates higher levels of toxic emissions. Speeds over 60 mph drastically impact fuel efficiencies – cars travelling at 75 mph use 20% more fuel. Trucks travelling at 75 mph use 50% more fuel and they also emit 100% more carbon monoxide, 50% more hydrocarbons and 31% more nitrogen oxides. If those numbers don’t want you to put restricker on your trucks, I don’t know what will. If you think saving a couple of cents on your diesel fuel prices is big, wait until you put this in place.
This is the most powerful way to lower diesel fuel costs and increase productivity. Is to have a fleet manager or an outside fuel management company that are experts in diesel fuel prices, fleet management services, truck cards, diesel fuel additives, truck cards, mobile fueling and have relationships with fueling companies. When you can have an expert on your staff with fueling knowledge your company will see more fuel savings through any of the methods above or with fleet credit card to provide fleet management solutions.
Let’s look a little closer at the numbers that could be sucked out of your fuel system. A normal truck could guzzle up to 1500 gallons a month, if you miss 1% of that, its 15 gallons on average, per truck. With diesel fuel prices and gas prices now over $4.00, their highest in several months, you could lose $60.00 a month, for every truck you own. If you have 100 trucks in your fleet, you’re losing $6,000 a month or $72,000 a year.
Christmas Caroling – What ever happened to the days of Christmas caroling? Get together with a few other families, or gather kids from the neighborhood or your church and go caroling. The kids will never, ever forget the fun. End the night by sharing some hot cocoa and fresh baked goodies. This will be fun for everyone!
Lawren Harris was born on October 23, 1885, into a wealthy family of Brantford, Ontario, Canada. He was the most recognized face of the famous ‘Group of Seven’ and the ‘Canadian Group of Painters.’ Lawren was one of the two sons in his family. He started pursuing his passion of art at a very young age and showed interest early by drawing, painting, & making click for his relatives & family. Lawren’s family co-owned the Massey-Ferguson Farm Machinery Company in Toronto and therefore, he did not have to struggle like other painters at the start of his career.
This is a wonderful thing that is actually a lot of fun! Maybe you don’t want to be one of the actual “Star” in the play but I bet they could use you in the back to help get the costumes together and organize the stage settings. Our Church has a wonderful Christmas play every year. The children and teens of our Church give this play their all! Really a rewarding experience just to be able to lend a helping hand with this.
Whatever website you use, there are plentiful card printables for your kids to use this holiday season. Print them out in black and white for extra coloring fun if the card already comes in color. Kids can design the insides and backs of the cards if the front is already taken by a large image.
