How To Change A Flat Tire

Ugh!  Flat tires!  Nobody wants to deal with them, but if the inevitable happens to you, you want to know how to change a flat tire.  Michelin Tires has teamed up with BzzAgent to get the word out on tire safety this summer and has provided the directions for properly changing a flat tire:

1. Safely pull over: Set your emergency brake and turn on your hazards

2. Prepare the tire: Remove the hubcap and loosen the lug nuts

3. Jack up your vehicle: Jack until the tire is about six inches off of the

ground — typically, the jack goes a few inches behind the front tires, or a

few inches in front of the rear tires (consult your vehicle owner’s manual)

4. Remove the flat tire: Remove the lug nuts, then position your hands at 9

and 3 o’clock on your tire and pull it straight off

5. Mount the spare tire: Align the holes on! the spa re with the threaded bolts

then replace each lug nut, followed by the lug nut across from it

6. Secure the spare tire: Lower your vehicle, then tighten each lug nut

followed by its opposite

7. Put away the tools: Replace the tools and store your flat tire

Learn To Play Piano With Beginner Piano Lessons

We have this beautiful upright Baldwin piano, and only two boys who know how to play. Right now private lessons for four more boys is a bit out of the budget, so I was excited when I found http://www.beginnerpianocourse.com/ where the other four boys can learn to play piano.
Besides being affordable, I also appreciated the fact that instead of boring scales like in most courses, http://www.beginnerpianocourse.com/ features familiar songs like Amazing Grace and Fur Elise so that the boys feel like they are really playing the piano.
The lessons include not only easy to read sheet music, but also DVD lessons featuring instructor, Yoke Wong. Another thing that I absolutely love is that http://www.beginnerpianocourse.com/ offers a 30 day money back guarantee if you are not absolutely satisfied, but I know you will be!

Mirror Fun

I took the boys to Osh Kosh B'Gosh to get some new pants. While we were there they discovered that the mirrors on the dressing room doors were fun mirrors like the ones at carnival rides. They had a blast making themselves look "strange". More Pictures.
