2014 Hyundai Sonata 2.0 T Extended Drive

If you saw me around town last week I was driving a deep red Hyundai Sonata. It’s an attractive¬†mid-sized sedan with distinctive swage line that adds the look of speed. It’s just a look though, the Sonata, though very perky, is not the car you’d be racing for pink slips at the bottom of the LA River. You also wouldn’t want to be racing the Sonata at the bottom of the LA River because it’s a really fantastic vehicle that you wouldn’t want to abuse. The 2014 Sonata that I …

A Little Bit of Information About Junkets

I only have a little information to share. In fact, what I know about junkets could fill a thimble so I’ll graciously share my thimble full of mom blogger automotive junket wisdom with you.

Women Don’t Care About Horsepower and Other Myths

Every so often an event rolls through town that captures one or more of my passions. I have to be passionate to leave the house on a school night.

This is Why UBER Should be on Every Kid’s Smart Phone

I’m at a party with my friend Laurie and we’re talking to this really nice guy who has a seven month old daughter. I’m typically really cautious when I talk to new parents because I don’t want to scare them. Especially Dads. Especially the Dads of daughters. We totally failed when I started talking to Laurie about how unpanicked I am about leaving Jane to wander Century City with her friends. “She has Uber.” I said. And sort of shrugged. Then Laurie and I started talking about why every kid …
