Living on the Go

Living on the Go

There is an emerging trend in the younger generations of today to “live small”. The idea is to sacrifice a large mortgage and larger type of home in order to spend that money traveling and/or doing things you want to do while living in a more modest home. In that spirit, this oil change Peoria services company thought it would be neat to talk about some of the types of “homes” available today for those who want to live small and also travel around in mobile homes. Tricycle home That’s right, it’s the home we have all been waiting for: the Tricycle Home! Made by People’s Industrial Design Office (PIDO), picture the comfort of living in one’s own home with the convenience of going anywhere you want to go. It folds out like an accordion so it can be expanded or made compact and is lightweight enough to tug it around on a trike! PIDO even makes towable gardens that you can bring around with you, as well. According to weburbanist.com, the Tricycle Home comes with a sink, st ... read more

Gilbert Mesa Could Use Food Trucking

Gilbert Mesa Could Use Food Trucking

The food trucking industry has been an exciting development in the food world and has gained a lot of popularity. Statistics from 2015 show that the food truck industry brings in over $1.2 billion a year. That’s a good amount of cash. The business model of the industry has allowed its vendors to create unique and delicious foods. If you’re from the Gilbert Mesa area then you might not have seen many food trucks and if you don’t know much about this industry yet, here is a little peak on what it is like for the food truck owners. A New Frontier As you might imagine, running a food truck is less expensive than running a restaurant. There’s less staff and a smaller kitchen. Smaller expenses means there is less risk and less risk leads to less stress among other benefits (not to say that it isn’t stressful).

Driving in Style

You know what goes great with cars besides speed, wheels, and Gilbert Mesa auto repair? We’re talking luxury baby, that’s right. Sweet, sweet luxury. Everyone wants it but how many can afford it? While most of us may never make the kind of cash to own top-of-the-line luxury vehicles, let’s take a moment to live vicariously through the upper echelon of society. First of all, you can get those cars with the doors that open up at slanted angles. Yes, the classic “I’m rich and I don’t care who knows it” doors. The press-a-button-to-open kind. An obvious must-have feature of any true luxury enthusiast. You’ve probably seen them in movies like the Dark Knight where Bruce Wayne rolls up in his fancy car that costs more than most of us make in a year. Are they necessary? No. Does it matter? Not when you’re Batman. The 2011 Volvo S80 comes complete with a heartbeat sensor, according to autobytel.com (AB).This safety feature is capable of detecting heartbeats, as you may have suspe ... read more

Real Car Stunts in Film

Real Car Stunts in Film

Explosions, mass destruction, and more explosions are some of the many compelling, larger-than-life cinematography done in movies that really bring in a “wow” factor. With the quality of special effects these days, it can be difficult to discern what is real and what is computer generated. Did that car really jump over that helicopter? Was Alderaan really blown up by the Death Star? Did Tom Cruise really hang on the side of that airplane? By the way, he actually did… In the movie-stunt world, car stunts have been around for long enough to have their own legacy within the silver screen. And with CGI messing with everyone’s judgement these days, we thought it would be fun to point out car stunts that actually happened. Fair warning: the video clips in this article contain foul language The Car with the Golden Jump The James Bond franchise has tons of stunts in it, as we all know. However, one film in particular has one of the best car stunts in the ... read more
