Eat your Broccoli!

We've all heard of SAD - seasonal affective disorder.  
It's real and especially during the fall/winter months.

Take action now to prevent winter blues.

Broccoli boosts your mood!
Eat 3 cups of broccoli during the week to 
help even out your moods.
It's the antioxidants found in broccoli that
nourish brain cells, increasing their 
production of feel good beta waves.

Yoga for increased endorphins!
Happiness boosting endorphins!
20 minutes per day will slash your risk of 
the blues in half.

Avocados -the natural antidepressant!
So have a little guacomole........

Use fragrant soaps for a 
quick happy booster!

George says take care of yourself and be
sure to eat your broccoli!

Making Sense of Scents!

Oh, we're in the quick of it now!  Spicy scents of the season
making us feel all warm and fuzzy!

Oh, but they do so much more............and here's some tid-bits for you
to ponder this Halloween week.

The smell of Vanilla helps to calm insomnia.
Sniff Sandalwood to speed wound healing.
A whiff of cinnamon sends frustrations packing!
Sniff Apples to lower your blood pressure.
The smell of pumpkin pie ignites more passion!
Sniff Cedarwood to feel more focused.

Well, since it's Halloween week I was going to do
an article about creepy crawlie critters.  You know spiders,
snakes, bees, ticks and ants.........ok, so they're not so cuddly,
but they do have important jobs in nature.

Did you know that humming birds use spider webs to build their nests?

Snakes help to keep the rodent population in control, if you really can't tolerate them
you can create a barrier around your home using sulphur.

There's not one nice thing we can say about ticks!  
Although I do know a trick to get them off you or your pet!
Put cooking oil on a paper towel and on top of the tick..........oh, it
will come out immediately!

You know, creepy crawlies are not as bad as people make them out to be
they're just doing their jobs out in nature.

Keep it safe in Zombie Land this week.

Customer Testimonial

Dear George & George's Customs Towing,

Blazenlady and I want to formally thank-you for our rescue on Sunday, Oct. 19th.  
What a blessing it was to have your truck/roll back pull up behind me 
during my breakdown.  I don't know exactly how long it might have taken 
for dispatch at Hagerty Plus to get a vehicle on the scene, but you and 
your rollback were exactly what was needed to get the job done.  
I am so thankful that Hagerty's worked with you to allow you and 
your fantastic truck to get me to my mechanic's garage.  
You did a top-notch job and I was very impressed with 
your equipment and your willingness to help.  
I take much pride in my 1967 Chevelle SuperSport and I would 
not have just left anyone help me get her off the roadway.  
Her repair was an easy fix as a few bolts had backed 
out of the shifter at the transmission which kept her from 
going into gear.  You are first class all the way!

We're there when you need us most.

Leaf Peeping

Take some time out of your hectic schedule to just
drive around back roads in search of fall foliage!
It's great for your mind, body and spirit to be out
in nature and educational for the kids too!

A nice drive, perhaps in search of the ultimate
pumpkin patch or christmas tree farm while admiring the
colorful roadside hues of fall's splendor. Brisk air clears 
your head and helps you to sleep better too!

We like to take time with our families on the weekend's too, 
enjoying the local festivities and fall foliage.

Of course if you have car trouble along the way
we do offer 24/7 emergency services.
So call us, your local tow company.

Tips from George

This letter was received from a happy customer
(full version can be found on our review page)

Thank you for taking care of me the other day.  Your advice was right on.  
I went to the auto parts store and they did the diagnostics you suggested.  
It appears I do have a "vampire" that's drawing a slow charge from my battery.  
I wouldn't have known what to do without your advice and could have 
spent needless dollars fixing what wasn't the problem.

The George Tip:  go to AutoZone or most automotive stores and have them run a
free diagnostic on your vehicle, this will help to identify a potential problem.

or if you do get stranded be sure to you call us 24/7

Morning has broken

.........and I'm having car trouble.

What does it mean when your Hyundai starts acting
like a mac truck?

Remember the TV commercial where people describe to the
mechanic the sounds their car is making, well mine was
making a grinding, swooshing sound.

The big tell tale sign is that I could barely turn the wheel................
kind of like a mac truck.

Well off to Jiffy Lube I go, to top off my fluids.  I tell the guy "I think I need
power steering fluid"..................Oh yes!  Seems the hose to the
power steering is leaking. A new hose cost $225.00!

Well for now I'll just keep filling the fluid up, 
although I know I don't have too long to play with this and
can foresee having to call a tow truck in my future
if I don't handle this.

So, I'll be calling:

Winter Driving Tips

Preparing for Winter Driving 

How to Drive in Snow and Ice

The three key elements to safe winter driving are:
  • Stay alert; 
  • Slow down; and 
  • Stay in control

It is best to winterize your vehicle before winter strikes.  
Schedule a maintenance check-up for the vehicle’s tires and tire pressure, 
battery, belts and hoses, radiator, oil, lights, brakes, exhaust system, 
heater/defroster, wipers and ignition system. Keep your gas tank 
sufficiently full – at least half a tank is recommended. Depending upon 
where you drive, you may consider using winter tires or tire chains.

We know how tough winter driving is!

Move Over

Governor O'Malley has expanded the State of Maryland's
Move Over laws to now include Tow Truck Operators.

This law will go into effect October 1, 2014 and
comes with a hefty fine of $500 if not adhered to.

The law states if you see a tow truck driver on the shoulder, 
you must move into an open lane away from the tow truck 
or slow down to a safe speed.

This is the same law protecting first responders; police, 
emergency vehicles and now tow trucks.

Let's keep it safe for 
Tow Truck Operators
