Mise En Place Tampa and the 5 of us…….:)

One of my fellow drivers has a client that needed 5 towncars to take him and his employees to the Mise En Place restaurant in Tampa, FL for an awesome dinner.

We used 2 of our luxury Lincoln Towncars, 2 of our luxury Chevrolet Suburbans, and our 1 lonely Ford Flex Sedan (out of range of photos)

The photos are not that great I apologize, but the humidity was fogging up my camera lense and there wasn’t room for all 5 of us to line up.

We had fun, the clients enjoyed their dinner very much and the night ended great!

I over exposed this one on purpose….thought it looked kinda cool??? :)

We greatly appreciate this clients business! THANK YOU SIR!

Drivers Safety Thoughts and Tips – Are YOU Prepared?

(the image above is from http://www.streetsblog.org)

No matter who you drive for or what you drive…..everyone needs to be safe and I hope no one wants to see anyone else have an accident. I know I sure do not. Bottom line, no matter how small, it is not good for anyone.

Driver Safety Tips – Are you Prepared?

 Many drivers all over the country and or the world have vehicular accidents of both at fault and Not at fault accidents.  BOTH at fault and not at fault types of accidents can be prevented.

 

So the question today is: Are you prepared?

We have ALL done it, found ourselves jamming on the brakes and complaining about the other driver that did this or that.

The truth is and the fact is…it is US that are not prepared.   Whether it is fault or not at fault. You are a professional driver…right?  It is up to you to be prepared.

The bottom line is this – leave EXTRA room….at least 3 car lengths where you can.  More on the highways or busier roads.  When you increase your distance you increase your chances of being safe.

Ohhhhhhh…….I know there are many of you rolling your eyes right now…..think about that the next time you call your boss to let them know you have had an accident.

 

  1. BE AWARE: Keep aware of yourself, how you are feeling and your mood. This is most important.
  2. INCREASE YOUR DISTANCE – If you increase your distance you will decrease your stress and increase your chances of being safe.
  3. GREEN TRAFFIC LIGHTS: Do not take for granted a green light…..look in all directions leading up to and before the intersections as you approach. BE AWARE
  4. FRUSTRATION:  Are you having a bad day? Did someone or something upset you? If you find yourself unnecessarily gripping the steering wheel tightly, too tightly, then you have to consciously make yourself relax and lesson your grip.   Gripping the steering wheel tightly when not necessary is one of your first signs of trouble. It also means that since you are gripping it too tightly you will also yank it to the left or right too quickly. The average driver, when they yank a steering wheel too hard will either stomp on the accelerator or hit the brakes unnecessarily and end up hitting something or someone.   It could be anywhere anytime…..in a gas station, a Walmart or Publix parking lot or anywhere.
  5. ADMIT ADMIT ADMIT:  Admit to yourself when you make a mistake. Always always check yourself. Am I paying attention to what’s around me? Am I gripping the wheel too tight? Have I been jamming on my brakes a lot today? Was I day dreaming? Was I texting? Was I reading something? Was I on the phone and not paying attention? Even if you have been sitting for some time, stop yourself before you move your vehicle…..did something change while you were sitting there?? Did someone pull in beside or behind you? Is someone standing behind you? Could be anything even someone’s pet dog or cat. CHECK YOURSELF…ALWAYS ALWAYS CHECK YOURSELF.

Please BE SAFE out there!

Thank you, Lance Greene – BATS Taxi & Towncar Service – St. Pete Beach, FL

Towncar Rates VS Taxi Rates

First. There is nothing wrong with Taxis and there is nothing wrong with Towncars

Taxi’s provide a valuable, legitimate service and Towncars provide the extra level of service

BOTH are very needed and sought after

If you are used to taking a taxi at Taxi prices and then find yourself in a Towncar you need to understand that you “should” pay the Towncar price

However there are many times when the Towncar service might say….”Ok, we will give you the Taxi rate”

Please understand………

When this occurs you are asking the Towncar driver and the company to lessen his or hers income….

In order to keep both great drivers and great cars on the street the income is necessary

Isn’t that what you want?

The Who & Cafe Dufrain….Tampa FL

Yesterday 4-15-2015 my customers went to Cafe Dufrain and The Who Concert in Tampa FL.

They had a blast at both.  They had not been to Cafe Dufrain and neither had I. The menu looked excellent and they stated it was indeed excellent. I will have to take my wife there sometime soon.

cafedufrainchickencafedufrain

They also said The Who came through with an awesome concert playing almost 3 hours.  They played all their popular songs and had cool graphics on the jumbo screens.  Roger Daltry and Mr. Pete Townsend and their drummer Zak Starkey did not disappoint bringing the intensity one would expect from The Who.

WHO50thanniv2015

Zak Starkey, is Ringo Starr’s son…Ringo Starr was one of Kieth Moon’s closest friends (Mr Moon was The Who’s original drummer). Kieth Moon gave Zak Starkey a drum kit at the age of 8 and referred to Kieth Moon as “Uncle Kieth.” Wikipedia article >>> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zak_Starkey

I am 55 and a former drummer. I fashioned my drumming style after Mr Kieth Moon and I never knew this about Zak Starkey….it is very cool for me. I thank my customer last night for peaking my interest as she told me she thought Zak Starkey was Mr. Ringo Starr’s son and that he was awesome on his drum kit. Here is a photo of Mr Starkey on stage with Mr. Roger Daltry.

Zak Starkey&who

When I picked my customer up at the end of the night I asked if she needed any cold beverages….her response was…..no thank you, I am happy and she proceeed to tell me about the night and how great it was.

Simply, Awesome

My night was also

:-))!
