What's your car called?

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Aug 24th, 2006 10:10pm

Call me a BlogHer blogger, Mommy Blogger or just call me cool

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Aug 24th, 2006 10:04pm

Do you equate mommyblogging with endless rants about the intricacies of diaper changing? Well, you are not alone, I think about diapers everyday and found that diaper wipes do make excellent LCD cleaners. Changing diapers and all other mundane tasks associated with sherparding an emerging human being does inspire my ideas, and my blogging. But my daily routine of child rearing does NOT define my role as a blogger. ...

Some Help for Hitting the Road

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Aug 24th, 2006 7:17pm

I generally hate driving (one of the many reasons why I love living in New York City), but I have many girlfriends who find it fun and relaxing. One of my friends eventually moved out of the city and never plans to return because she cannot afford to have her beloved car with her. Even if she could afford keeping her ride nearby, she is not sure she’d want to. The joys of driving stick do not lend themselves ...

If AskPatty was online several years ago, she could have simply asked a question and without embarrassment get an honest and straight answer. AskPatty is a Website where women (and men) can ask any automotive question and ...

Tips for Traveling with Kids

Posted by AskPatty - Automotive Advice for Women at Aug 24th, 2006 6:55pm

Growing up, the family station wagon was my personal ticket to worlds un-yet explored. Many evenings after a hard days work, Dad would go out into the garage to "tinker" on the wagon. The long hot summer nights as Dad's prepared the car for our annual summer camping trips are the most memorable. He gave me the most important job...holding the flashlight, still, while he worked on the engine! I felt soooooo ...
