I recently spent a lot of time trying to figure out why the ABS (anti-lock braking system), TCS Off (traction control system) and SES (service engine soon) warning lights all lit up on the dash of my 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP. I compiled all my internet research and put together a troubleshooting guide. Click on the link or thumbnail picture below if you’re having a similar problem with a General Motors vehicle.
I was just planning to email some friends about the 2008 Ft. Lauderdale Air & Sea Show that was supposed to take place next weekend (May 3rd & 4th), when I noticed the press release on their website announcing the cancellation. Apparently the event was not able to secure a corporation to become a title sponsor like McDonald’s was last year. I hope the show comes back next year in 2009. In the meantime, check out my pictures and videos from a previous show by clicking on the link below.

Every year in December 1000’s of people wearing Santa suits gather in cities around the USA, Canada & the rest of the world to spread holiday cheer.

The majority of our time this past weekend was spent caring for three orphaned baby squirrels until we got in touch with a certified wildlife rehabilitation expert. The babies were “true pinkies” at about only 2 weeks of age with closed eyes, barely developed ears and very little body hair.
