The Ford Escape Car gives you control in bad weather and reduces emissions while driving ! (My review of the car)

Hello all. WHat are some features you look for in

a car? It’s not just cutting down on time to get you

to your destination. You want more benefits and the more

benefits the better it sounds. Well, that is important reason why

I just wanted to take the time to promote my

favorite car, the Ford Escape. Oh it’s beautiful and shiny.

It’s worthy of much applaud.

Now, getting into the Ford Escape’s benefits.  The Ford Escape’s

AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ helps

maintain control in rain, ice, or snow. It has auto start stop

technology to reduce emissions during city driving. WHen it

stops, the engine cuts off. It restarts when you step on the

accelarator or move off the brake pedal. With one of it’s features,

you change gears rather quickly. Another of one this car’s features

lets you  know if you are going too fast on a curve or dry or wet pavement,

by slowing you down.

Whoa! I had no idea this beauty had so many vital features. Now,

it gives more meaning to this car. If I had to pick my number

one car, it would be the FORD ESCAPE! I treat it like a valuable person.

I LOVE this car. In addition, I did a tally of how many times I saw this

car.Here are the details:

I did this tally April 20, 2016 before 8am to 7pm. This very

beautiful day I noticed I saw this car 129 times in one day on my

journey Dearborn Heights, Michigan to Detroit, Michigan. I made

sure every time I saw this car I put a line on the paper. This tallying

method is a representation of just how popular this car really is.

How to Pass the Driving Test your First Time Book Review!!

chryslerI’ve always wanted to know how to drive. When I did

drive years ago, I was nervous. Think about it. The

vehicle is bigger than me and is run by me. That

means I have to be extra cautious and know what I’m

doing. I kept studying the road signs and situations

from a specific book called ” DMV Test: How to Pass on Your First

Try”. It’s an excellent, high quality affordable book.

It lays out the most dangerous situations to avoid

like not texting on the phone while driving. They

even lay out the things you should do. They state

the following:

  • Accelerate smoothly.
  • Stop the vehicle gently
  • Make sure your vehicles is in the proper gear.
  •  Signal for all lane changes and turns.
  •  Look for potential hazards. Check your mirrors frequently.
  • Check your blind spots before changing lanes.
  • Know where to stop, like at crosswalks!

The book ask questions on the following:

  • The narrow bridge ahead sign
  • The cattle sign
  •  Right lane end signs
  • A crossroads sign
  • Which sign the shape represents
  • They ask what situations represent service, regulatory, route,and warning signs
  • Where certain signs
  • Location signs
  • Clearance signs
  • Defensive driving
  • Left turn hand signal
  • How far to look ahead or park your car from something
  • How low beams should be used
  • Safe following distances
  • Intersections
  • Passing
  • Speed Limits
  • What you should do in particular driving situation

Well, I studied the book from the Secretary of State, and wrote it down

over and over. I then bought the book “DMV Test: How to Pass on your First

Try”. I studied that book and had fun with the questions. I went up to

the Secretary of State and took the test with my BIRTH CERTIFICATE

accompanying me. Ofcourse, they want to see your birth certificate and

state id so you can take the driving test. I got my permit because I passed

the test. Then, I went to one of the driving school’s and took about 9

driving sessions, 3 hours per week, for $150.00 weekly. That is expensive.

When I first started my driving session,

I was told to relax and hold the steering wheel at 9/3 like on a clock. I was

also told to signal left and right turns and to let the steering wheel

glide through my hands. I was then told to put the car in park ,put the car in drive,

check my mirrors before I take off. I learned some things.

In order to go into the right lane, I must check the front mirror,

the outside right mirror, and over my shoulder, which is the back window

right. Then for a left lane change, I should still look at the front mirror,

left mirror outside the car, and over my shoulder (left back window of car).

I had fun driving and was a very cautious new driver. I wanted to keep

driving but my source of money ran out. I have to use my other

money for something else. And one last thing- Just because you

take the driving test online and fail doesn’t mean you won’t pass the

driving test in person.

I failed One of the driving tests online,  then passed  ANOTHER

driving test onlilne, but passed the driving test at the Secretary of State.

They don’t even ask you all the questions in the book I mentioned earlier,

or from the dmv tests for michigan online. Plus, in that book I told you

about, it is a question and answer book. It includes 202 questions and

answers. So go ahead, build up your  courage. Get it done! Thanks to

my subscribers, readers, people who like my work!

I wish you blessings. Now, gchryslero and ace that test!

I got the braid and twist style! (pictures inside)

I got the hairstyle from contemplating a new look. I told the stylists i want cornrows going up and twists at the top. I notice that when you don’t get parts in your twists and braids the hair looks fuller. Anyways, The top center section is where I told her to put the two strand twists. The twists really jazz it up. They flow right into the braided style. My stylist was a cosmetology student that said she would do her relative’s hair just like mine. I was honored to hear such words. This look just made me happy and I feel like a model. Aww, I will get this style again.

Clementine Hunter, an African AMerican woman so jazzy with her oil paints!!

 

Clementine Hunter, an African AMerican woman born 1886,

was a folk artist who use to spend time in the cotton fields.

Oh, what a blessing. She spent her time in the cotton fields.

Later on in life, she worked in the house, which gave her a chance to

try out her sewing skills. She would save up small, left over scraps

of material and turned that into fabulous quilts. The plantation owner

encouraged her to make quilts and baskets in her spare time.

She tried to try and mark a painting just like the artist. She

showed someone name Francois the picture she had painted during

the night. This was the first picture she showed to anyone besides

her family. Francois encouraged her to paint more. She then

began to paint on different items such as :paper bags, use bottles,

cardboard boxes, and iron pots. Francois made sure Clementine

always had a nice supply of oil paints because she could not pay

for them herself.

Pretty soon, she was able to sell her works and turn around

and get her own paints and a suitable canvas. In 1955, the Delgado

Museum in New Orleans gave an exhibition of her work.Francois

suggested that Clementine paint wood panels for the house.

She painted nine murals, showing different scenarios on the plantations.

Her work became popular with big city art galleries  and shown

at museums too. She sold alot of her paintings, most to friends

for small amounts of money. Eventually, she was able to get her

own trailer. The moral of the story is to work for what you want.

Someone around you can inspire you on what field or career

to go into. Well, she is just one of the many talents that

exists in Black History. Hunter lived to be a 101 years of age.

Martin Davis, a young African American designer for General Motors designs cars!

 

 

chrysler I’ve seen so many cars. I see my top three favorite cars most

often. So I decided to look up which cars are designed by

African Americans. I knew this would be a fun topic.

So listen, his is what  I found. Martin Davis, a

black man has led the exterior lighting and design studio

for the automaker’s North American division, the team responsible

for the exterior lighting for every brand under the General Motors

umbrella.

Davis knew he had a love for design and innovation since elementary

school. HE did not like the HOT wheels and lego sets. They just

did not keep his attention. He also did not like the toys in

toy stores, so this creative black youth made his own.

The Detroit area native collected empty cardboard boxes used to transport

fruits and veggies from the grocery store. He brung them home and just

started cutting. He molded shapes with glue, tape and constructions

paper.. Their was a small closet in the entryway of his parents house,

with enough room for a chair and his creations, interior designs for

a car that includes a dashboard and center console. He invited

his friends to test drive the car and come out with a new model

once a month.

His father thought kids playing with cardboard in their

closet was a safety concern. Thus he shut the operation down.

He still sent his sketches into Ford and was just in middle school.

He waited and thought nothing would come of his work. A

Ford employee sent his work to the design department. He

got a follow up letter from the design department with some

career advice and a list of schools. HE really really wanted

to attend the College for Creative Studies in detroit , michigan

out of the choices he had been sent.

He got the design managers attention and they took his

sketches and plastered them on a 20 foot wall in his studio

at GM. The auto company allowed him the opportunity to

travel to Birmingham, England to work at an advanced

design studio that mainly focused on Cadillacs.

Davis and his team were responsible for the exterior lighting

responsibilities for three well known programs- the GMC Acadia, Chevy

Traverse, and the Buick Enclave. And as you can see,

this is a process. He worked and worked to master

his craft. You must do one step before you can make

the other . There’s more to the story of the brilliant black man

in the car designing, here:

Robert Smalls, the black slave who sailed his way to freedom!

 

chains

Do you the different ways black slaves escaped to freedom?

Do you know about Henry Box Brown, the black man who

mailed himself to freedom? Well, in order to survive, the

black slaves had to be clever, unique, innovative and creative.

They had to have a strong will and they sure did motivate

others to freedom. This reminds me of one particular

black slave named Robert Smalls.

Robert Smalls and a crew of fellow slaves were together

without the white captain and his two mates. Now, it\

was the right time to try something clever and daring.

They slipped a cotton steamer off the dock, picked up

some family members, then slowly navigated their

way through the harbor. Smalls, doubled as the captain

even donning the captain’s wide brimmed straw hat to

help cover up his face. He then responded with proper

coded signals at two Confederate checkpoints, which includes

Fort Sumter itself and other defense positions.

It was all clear. Smalls sailed into the open seas. Once

he was outside of Confederate waters, he had

raised a white flag and surrendered his  ship to the

blockading Union fleet. In under 4 hours, Robert Smalls,

a black male slave had commandeered a heavy army

Confederate ship and its 17 black passengers from

slavery to freedom.

Can we give a round of applause to Robert Smalls for

his take charge leadership skills? He is a true

hero.

Which Slave Sailed Himself to Freedom?
