Be Careful Out There

Categories: Tags:

Before DVR’s and streaming television and DVD box sets of an entire series, we used to watch television programs when they were broadcast. Viewers of a certain age can recall “appointment” television programs of the 1980’s, so called because loyal viewers would avoid scheduling conflicting events on the nights their favorite shows aired. One of the first of these iconic programs was Hill Street Blues, airing at 10:00 PM on Thursday nights. Hill Street Blues used an ensemble cast to track several different story lines all centered around one police station, and loyal viewers drew comfort from the familiar opening every week. Each show began with a morning briefing of officers led by gruff but lovable Sgt. Esterhaus, who finished every meeting the same way: “Remember, let’s be careful out there.”

Vehicle Maintenance Melbourne Florida

Many Americans have become accustomed to the same routine every summer. As the holidays approach, we begin to imagine all of the projects that need our attention and we naively dream that we will get to do most of them. Like Charlie Brown trying to kick that football, we forget how quickly last summer passed. Then Labor Day arrives, and we wonder what happened to all of those weeks that seemed like a long span of time back in the spring.

Located at The Corner of Family & Community Streets

Corner of Family & Community Streets

When you wake up in the morning, you never know what the day will bring. An unexpected call from Howard changed a lot of things that day. He had a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan, with only 14,000 miles, single owner and it was equipped with an electric wheelchair ramp and lowered floors. Considering we had a 2000 full size Chevy van, extended roof, 98,000 miles and a hydraulic lift, we were thrilled. Upon further investigation, the van was being sold by a son whose father had recently passed away.

That son had been the youth counselor to my disabled daughter as she was growing up, so the idea that she could get and make good use of his father’s van made the sale more tolerable in his sadness. The deal was made and after new tires, a major detailing and paint job, my daughter’s new vehicle was road worthy.

Howard has serviced both families’ cars for many years and his insight and advise on this sale/purchase was invaluable. The subsequent picture says it all because, “that’s how she rolls!”

1966 Was A Very Good Year

Categories: Tags:

What was our world like just fifty years ago in 1966? The Cold War was still very scary. The Vietnam War was escalating. NASA was busy, but we had not yet put a man on the moon. Although pop history tends to emphasize the fringiest elements of the counter-culture, most Americans were hard-working and patriotic, committed to traditional values and alarmed by the news.

Barriers were broken in 1966. Robert Weaver became the first African-American cabinet member when President Lyndon Johnson appointed him to head the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Bobbi Gibb became the first woman to run the Boston Marathon. Neil Armstrong and David Scott completed the first docking in space aboard the Gemini 8 spacecraft. Texas Western won the NCAA basketball championship with the help of five African-American student-athletes.

The Baltimore Orioles won the World Series in baseball. The champions of the National Football League were the Green Bay Packers. The Boston Celtics were the National Basketball Association champions, and the Montreal Canadiens won the Stanley Cup in hockey.

1966 was also the end of an era. Walt Disney died in December while producing The Jungle Book, making that the last animated feature he personally supervised.

“A Man for All Seasons” won the Academy Award for Best Picture. “Bonanza” was the most popular television program. The year opened with Simon and Garfunkel’s “Sound of Silence” at number one on the Billboard pop chart, and it ended with “I’m a Believer” by the Monkees at the top. Popular Christmas and birthday gifts included new toys and games like Twister, Spirograph and Barrel of Monkeys.

United Airlines invited us to “Fly the Friendly Skies.” Burger King urged its customers to “Have it Your Way.” Captain Kirk of the Starship Enterprise said, “Beam me up, Scotty,” and John Lennon said that the Beatles were “bigger than Jesus.”

1966 was also a banner year for drivers in Brevard County, Florida because that is the year that Cassels Garage opened in West Melbourne. We are a family-owned shop well equipped to provide routine maintenance or do major repairs on your car. We have been serving Brevard County since 1966.
