Old Fashioned Festive Fare

Whether carried on by culinary tradition or celebrated in story and song,
some foods from years past remain part of the season's festivities:

Chestnuts.  The lyrics of a sentimental holiday song describe "Chestnuts
roasting on an open fire."  Roasted chestnuts have been a common street
food for centuries in Europe and Asia.  The brown nuts are heated over a
flame or in an oven.  Once cooled, peeling the hard shell reveals a meaty,
sweet-tasting nut.

Sugarplums.  The beloved Sugar Plum Fairy rules the kingdom of Sweets in
the popular ballet "The Nutcracker".  A long-ago luxury, the confection from
the 17th to 19th centuries was not actually a sugared plum as the name suggests
but a type of small, hard-sugar candy that resembled the fruit's shape.

Figgy Pudding.  The word pudding is a generic term for dessert in Britain, where
a figgy pudding topped with a  holly sprig ends a holiday meal.  The dome
shaped, moist spice cake, loaded with dried fruit, is also called plum pudding
and was most popular in the 15th to 19th centuries.

Wassail.  The song "Here We Come A-Wassailing" refers to the tradition of
caroling as well as the mulled drink that accompanied the singers.  Similar to
spiced cider, numerous recipes for wassail have been quenching winter thirsts
as far back as the middle ages.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.........

Whether traveling around town or on your way to grandma's
George's Custom Towing is here to help!

Have you checked your tire tread recently?

..........Tire Tread is HUGE!  It's time to check out your tires!


Personally I rely on Jiffy Lube way too much! I just figure
they will tell me when I need new tires, perhaps it's
time for a little personal responsibility on my part.

Understanding tire tread is an important factor in your
vehicle's health and performance.  Not to mention
accident potentials especially on slick or snow covered roads.

So, be alert!  Don't put it off.  
Have your tires checked or check them yourself!

It's Monday........and your car won't start!

oooh, it's a bit on the chilly side this morning!  Your car is feeling it too.........
don't get caught with a car that won't start in the cold weather.

Plug it in, plug it in!  Get yourself an electric block heater for your engine
 that you plug in over night. Keeps the oil warm and the battery charged,
 so your car starts in the morning!

You can also plug in a pair of electric gloves or socks,
right into a USB port on your computer or using 
the USB connector in your car.

Wild stuff!

Should you need an early morning jump start
be sure to call us:

Don't forget to MOVE OVER

 Here we go into the holiday RUSH and we understand, 
we're out Christmas shopping too!  But since we're in the tow truck business we wanted to remind you once again that
we have FAMILY, we have FRIENDS, we have CO-WORKERS, we have BELOVED PETS.........
and we all want to arrive safely home!  

So, please MOVE OVER if you see us on the road 
trying to help someone in need. 
We're just doing our job.

Steer Clear
or Move Over
Just Do It!

Ok, so it is a little confusing when the industry has been 
using the term Move Over and now all of a sudden
I'm seeing Steer Clear........but the deal is, they're
one in the same and that is what is important.



You've got to Move Over - It Saves Lives!

Keep Your Eyes on the Road - Calls Kill

Calls Kill............some pretty powerful words from the 
National Safety Council.  In 2016, 40,000 people died on the roads.
It's time for everyone to take personal action
and responsibility.


From the National Safety Council, 
the three biggest causes of fatalities on the road are caused by:

1.  Alcohol - 30.8%
2.  Speeding - 30%
3.  Distracted Driving - 26%

We simply cannot multi-task while driving and that includes
hands free talking on the phone.

Start making a difference today on the road.

Take it slow as you go!




The Holidays are Here
People are driving like crazy; going through red lights, taking chances -
putting you and me at risk.  This is a weekly reminder post - 
SLOW DOWN and MOVE OVER.

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.

As we approach the holiday season let's all be more aware
on the road.

Let's keep it safe for 
Tow Truck Operators and all first responders

Happy Birthday Mickey!

Mickey Mouse that is!  
This week there's a celebration going on for Mickey!  

He's one of the most recognizable faces in the world,
and he turns 89 years old this month.

Mickey's birthday is November 18, 1928, the date
when "Steamboat Willie" premiered.

Originally creator Walt Disney wanted to name him
Mortimer, but his wife, Lillian, convinced him
that Mickey was a better choice.

Some of Mickey's movements and mannerisms were
said to be inspired by Charlie Chaplin's character
the Tramp.

Disney himself voiced Mickey Mouse from 1929-1946.

During World War II, Mickey's image was used to
advertise war bonds.

Mickey was the first cartoon character to receive a star
on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Just a few fun facts about Mickey Mouse to lighten your
morning!

If you're not having a great start to the day.........and your
car won't start, give us a call for a jump!
