And check out the MomsLA Summer Camp Guide for 2016! So give yourself plenty of options by coming to the ... Read More »

Ford Flex Review: Perfect Road Trip Car

Ford Flex at Glorietta Bay Inn

The worst thing about the Ford Flex we were loaned last week was having to give it back to Ford; my family and I loved this car.

I have a son in 11th grade, so college is looming in our future, and as soon as I can stop weeping over the idea of my baby boy growing up so big long enough to get serious about planning for him to go to college, I start to weep all over again when I think about paying for college. Long ago I thought that scholarships would be an answer ... Read More »

Ford C-MAX Energi plugged in at my house

I spent a week driving all around Southern California in a Ford C-MAX Energi Plug-In Hybrid and the gas gauge barely dipped below Full. That’s what you get with a state-of-the-art hybrid electric car. Ford was kind enough to let me borrow the C-MAX in order to get a feel for it and write this review. My family is in search of a new car to replace an aging member ... Read More »
