Dodge Celebrates 100 Years With Great New Ad Starring Centenarians

Elderly people tend to get short shrift in commercials, much as they do most everywhere in life. Kudos to Dodge and The Richards Group, then, for celebrating the automaker’s 100th birthday by putting the spotlight on humans born around the same time.

Not all of them are centenarians, but many of them are. (The rest mostly seem to be sprightly 90-somethings.) And they’re here to dispense some hard-won wisdom about what they’ve learned in a century on this Earth. And they dispense it with humor, style and not a little defiance.

You learn a lot in 100 years,” says on-screen copy, as a 2015 Challenger screeches out of the frame. “Dodge. Born 1914.”

“As it appears in … “

A dear blogger friend taught me about this concept.

You can find Michelle here: http://mchelsmusings.wordpress.com/

In her own words:

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

~INTERESTING FACTS~

The Volkswagen Beetle, officially the Volkswagen Type 1, or informally the Volkswagen Bug, is a two-door, four passenger, rear-engined economy car manufactured and marketed by German automaker Volkswagen (VW) from 1938 until 2003.

The need for this kind of car, and its functional objectives, were formulated by Adolf Hitler, leader of Nazi Germany, wishing for a cheap, simple car to be mass-produced for the new road network of his country. He contracted Porsche in 1934 to design and build it to his exacting standards. Ferdinand Porsche and his team took until 1938 to finalise the design.

This is one of the first rear-engined cars. With over 21 million manufactured (21,529,464) in an air-cooled, rear-engined, rear-wheel drive configuration, the Beetle is the longest-running and most-manufactured car of a single design platform, worldwide.

At the end of the day …. “Batman Evolution”!!


~~September 25, 2014~~ 

The Piano Guys are at it again. Their new CD is coming out early in October 2014. It’s titles “Wonders”. I have already pre-ordered mine. I’m such a fan.

I’m taken by Steven’s joy and big smile while playing any of the many cellos he has. Jon has fast moving fingers, showing a dexterity on the piano keys that is beyond comprehension. 

These guys look like they are having the time of their lives. Their joy and enthusiasm is infectious.

This many be one of the many reasons why I like and enjoy their music and talents so much. 

Wonders

“As it appears in …. ” 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Piano_Guys

The Piano Guys are an American musical group consisting of Jon Schmidt, Steven Sharp Nelson, Paul Anderson, and Al van der Beek. They gained popularity through YouTube, where they posted piano and cello renditions of popular songs and classical music. Schmidt and Nelson’s music is accompanied by professional-quality videos shot and edited by Paul Anderson and formerly by Tel Stewart.

Their first three major-label albums The Piano Guys, The Piano Guys 2, and A Family Christmas each reached number one on the Billboard New Age Albums and Classical Albums charts. The Piano Guys’ newest album Wonders is due October 7, 2014.

The song is a medley of Batman anthems from over 50 years, including the theme song from the 1966 Batman television series, Danny Elfman’s theme from the 1989 Batman film, and Hans Zimmer’s score from The Dark Knight Trilogy.

1966, 1989, 2005

In the video, each theme is played in front of a replica Batmobile from their respective show or film.

Story behind the song

Holy hemiola, Batman! 50 years of music and film all rolled together in front of the cars that have become icons of super hero history. This is one of those projects we’ve wanted to do from the very beginning of The Piano Guys.

We love super heroes, the dramatic music that has brought them to life, and the vivid films that have made them legends. We used piano, cello, handheld cameras, a radio controlled helicopter, and some scrappy special effect techniques in the most creative ways possible to emulate the three epic eras of one of the greatest super heroes ever created: BATMAN!

Bat11

One of our favorite little surprises on the album is a track called, “Batman: Evolution” – an epic mash-up of all three Batman themes (from the 60’s TV show, the ’89 “Keaton” movies, and the current “Dark Knight” trilogy). We’re filming the video this week. And for the first time in history ALL THREE BATMOBILES from each of these eras will be in the same video! Holy hot wheels, Batman!

The 8-yr old kid in each of us is doing back handsprings! Be sure to stay tuned! And in the meantime please PRE-ORDER our new album!

As the family grows …. so does the car!!

It was December 2011 when we got this brand new vehicle. Elantra 2012 ..

We thought it was a cool car and the color was appealing.

~~2012 Hyundai Elantra Review~~

The high praises the 2011 Hyundai Elantra received carry over into the 2012 model year. Test drivers still say the Elantra is an affordable small car with upscale amenities that will make others think you paid more for it than you actually did.

Auto reivewers aren’t worried about whether or not the Elantra will lose its new-car sparkle now that the Ford FocusKia Forte and Chevrolet Cruze are in the mix. One reason the Elantra can hold its ground is because it has a stylish exterior that makes the Cruze and Forte look bland.

In addition to stand-out exterior styling, the Elantra Limited offers heated leather seats in the rear row, a feature that isn’t available on most upscale sedans. Test drivers appreciated this option last year, and are still impressed with it this go-around.

Elan1

Most reviewers agree that the 2012 Hyundai Elantra outshines many of its rivals because it’s well-rounded. For example, the Elantra has high fuel economy ratings of 29/40 mpg city/highway, and unlike the Ford Fiesta, Ford Focus and Chevrolet Cruze, shoppers don’t need to upgrade to higher trims to get those figures. Inside, the Elantra offers enough cabin and trunk space to compete with some midsize sedans, a navigation system that’s fast and easy to use and more standard features than other affordable small cars like the2012 Honda Civic.

The Elantra is a good value, but no reviewers label the Elantra fun-to-drive like the Mazda3 or Honda Fit. However, they do say the 2012 Hyundai Elantra makes a great daily driver. After looking at all these qualities, many members of the automotive press say the Elantra is one of the best affordable small cars on the market. 

Edmunds agrees, and writes, “Thanks to head-turning styling, a fuel-efficient engine and a long list of standard safety features and upscale options, the 2012 Hyundai Elantra is a top pick for a small sedan.”

Big Sonata & Little Elantra.

However, the family has grown and there are four grand kids:

The Bug (9), Blondie (7), Curls (6) and Buddy (19 months).

There is no way that you could get the four of them and the things that you need to care for young children, a driver and a passenger. There was no other option. This car had to be traded.

A larger vehicle was required.

~~Entourage Limited 2008 …. 42,000 miles …. new to us~~

Full 2008 Hyundai Entourage Review

Hyundai’s first minivan enters its second year with minor adjustments to feature availability.

Introduction

Closely related to the second-generation Kia Sedona, the 2008 Hyundai Entourage combines all the comfort, utility and safety that budget-minded families are looking for. Available in two trim levels, the base GLS and upmarket Limited, the Entourage has the modern minivan basics down pat. A capable V6 comes standard, as does a full complement of safety equipment and seven-passenger seating with second-row captain’s chairs and a fold-away third-row seat.

Overall, the 2008 Hyundai Entourage remains a smart choice for value-minded shoppers who don’t need a lot of icing on their cake. It may not offer the top-notch refinement, amenities and drivability of class leaders like the freshened Honda Odyssey or the model selection of the redesigned Dodge Grand Caravan, but it’s capable enough for most buyers. If you’re looking for maximum value and confidence-inspiring safety and warranty protection in a minivan that covers most of the bases with competence, the Hyundai Entourage is a very good bet.

Ent3

Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options

The 2008 Hyundai Entourage minivan comes in two well-equipped trim levels. The base GLS offers 16-inch wheels, removable second-row captain’s chairs, a foldaway 60/40-split-folding third-row seat, tri-zone air-conditioning, cruise control, full power accessories and six-speaker CD audio. The uplevel Entourage Limited adds 17-inch aluminum wheels, rear privacy glass, automatic headlights, dual power-sliding side doors, a power liftgate, heated side mirrors, automatic climate control, a power driver seat, heated front seats, leather seating, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls and wood or metal dash trim.

I think there’s one very happy camper in the household. 

I’m sure the grands will love it too. It has all the amenities including a DVR. There’s space to carry all their gear, the fun things, the book packs, the toys, the sports items.

What else could anyone want??
