Old Cars Can Become New Friends

There are a number of advantages to driving an older vehicle.  Driving a “vintage” car may be seen by some as a humbling experience, but humility is a positive trait.  Purchasing an old car is an eco-friendly decision, and their maintenance requirements facilitate a sense of responsibility. Some old cars are known for their longevity, such as Toyota Camrys from the 1990s and Volvo wagons even older than that.  As long as you do your research and find a car with good mechanical bones, adequate safety features, and postive crash test data, an old car just may become your new best friend.

The mental aspect of yoga is as, or maybe more important than the physical fitness aspect.  It is a great resource for addressing stress and anxiety.  It can also promote relaxation.  All of these components make yoga a helpful tool for those suffering from chronic pain.

Zoom Client Meetings

Zoom is helping us stay socially connected from a distance. While Skype and Facetime have been available for video chats for years, Zoom has emerged as the clear technological winner in the field during this Covid-19 isolation period.  We here at AutoAccident.com have found the app to have a fast and reliable connection. We have been using it for staff meetings, and it was so simple to use that we began offering Zoom client meetings. New client meetings via Zoom help us establish trust and connection. The process of accessing Zoom is not difficult, and we will link a video and provide simple instructions below. The app is so popular that “zoom” has become a verb – so if you want to talk with us face-to-face about your case – let’s zoom!
