Do you remember telephone numbers and other information like you did before you became a smartphone user, or do you rely primarily on your mobile device?
AHHH, Smartphones-we love them! Problem is, researchers are finding that those little gadgets of information may be draining our brains, making it harder for us to concentrate and damaging our memory. Experts say, basically, smartphones are making us dumber.
Have you ever mistakenly hooked to the wrong trailer? Do you occasionally find yourself rechecking the trailer numbers during your travels?
There was a time when trucking companies had two to four-digit trailer numbers. Today, it’s not uncommon for trailer numbers to be several digits long, some with an occasional letter in the mix. Sometimes, this can cause an innocent mistake of hooking to the wrong trailer, just by misreading a digit, or a letter.
Have you ever had anxiety, or even cried, after getting rid of a car or big truck?

That’s because a car is more than just a car; it contains memories, it has a life and your car becomes part of the family.
