  • The Dual Bottom Line – No More “What Ifs”

    Do you look forward to going to work? Are you actively involved in your job, and so happy with what you do that you don’t even see it as real work? Not many people can really say, “yes” to those questions, and even fewer can demonstrate that it’s really how they feel. Coming to work […]

A standard tractor’s diesel engine hauling a trailer will manage 5 to 7 mpg, where the gasoline burning tractor can get about 3 mpg. I just recently purchased a Kia Forte Eco which […]
