Lexus + Sojourner = Love on Valentine's Day! #HolidayPrep


Lexus spoiled me this Valentine's Day with a Lexus ES 300H for the week! I opened my front door and the car was in my driveway. I couldn't resist and immediately took the vehicle for a spin. My hands glided over the smooth woodgrain steering wheel. I turned up my satellite radio sound system and used my Lexus’ Display Audio infotainment system to navigate my way around town; which were both amazing and easy to use. 


On Valentine's day I drove my family to breakfast and later to an early dinner. Weaving through Atlanta, I noticed all of the wonderful features the car has to offer. The Lexus ES 300H includes heated and ventilated front seats, leather upholstery, cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic pre-collision braking, blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, smartphone app integration and a navigation system with Lexus' Remote Touch controller, which is used like a computer mouse and selects items on the navigation screen.


On Sunday morning, I took my boys to The Children's Museum of Atlanta to check out the new "Super Kids Save the World" exhibit. Their legs in the back of the Lexus weren't cramped and they were glad to have wiggle room. My youngest yelled, "Mom, I want this car!" 


Later that day, I took my Mother-in-Law to see Alvin Ailey at the Fabulous Fox Theatre. I felt great picking her up in my shiny new ride. She loved the car so much that now she's thinking about buying one of her own. 


I give the Lexus ES 300H a 10 out of 10 for all of the reasons listed above and many, more more!

Super Kids Save the World is now Open at Imagine It! The Children's Museum of Atlanta

Super Kids Save the World

Saturday, February 7, 2015 Through Sunday, May 3, 2015 

On Sunday, I took the boys to The Children's Museum of Atlanta to check out their new exhibit, "Super Kids Save the World." This exhibit is based on the British children’s book, George Saves the World by Lunchtime written by Jo Readman and illustrated by Ley Honor Roberts. The book is dedicated to showing the importance of taking care of the world. 

The newest exhibit in the Morph Gallery features a House, Garden, Re-Use Charity Shop, Farmer's Market, Recycle Center, Reduce Fuel Station and Research Lab all geared to teach children about Reducing, Re-using, Recycling and Repairing! 


My future scientist is learning about sustainable energy by studying algae as an important source of biofuel.
Let the Light Shine! What happens when the light shines on the panel?
My child's on stage learning the song, "ReduceReuseRecycle!"

Bill and Melinda Gates 2015 Annual Letter


Tonight at 11 PM ET, Bill and Melinda Gates released their Annual Letter (http://www.gatesletter.com). In it, they are making one big bet for the next 15 years: The lives of people in poor countries will improve faster in the next 15 years than at any other time in history thanks to breakthroughs in health, farming, banking, and education.


The breakthroughs they envision are:
  • Half as many kids will die, far fewer women will die in childbirth, and people will live healthier lives because we’ll beat many of the diseases that sicken the poor
  • Africa will be able to feed itself
  • Mobile banking will help the poor radically transform their lives
  • Better software will help all kids, no matter where they live, receive a world class education

Warren Buffett wrote a letter to Bill and Melinda Gates, he said: "Don't just go for safe projects. Take on the really tough problems."  I believe that Bill and Melinda Gates will continue to better the lives of millions of people around the world in the next 15 years and beyond.  

Share this letter (http://www.gatesletter.comand let's work together to improve the lives of people living in our poorest countries around the globe.
