My wife has an exemplary driving record but about two years ago was involved in a peculiar incident. I say 'incident' and not accident, because that is exactly what it was. While Ann... Read more →

After just returning from Europe, I guess I have the 'travel bug' and am more excited than ever about planning future trips.
