With tart lemon and tangy-sweet Balsamic vinaigrette, this grilled chicken is as flavorful as it is easy to prepare.
Grilled Chicken with Balsamic Vinaigrette
1/4 cup Balsamic vinegar
2 tbs Dijon mustard
2 tbs Lemon juice, fresh
2 Garlic cloves
2 tbs Olive oil
Salt & pepper, to taste
1/2 cup Chicken broth
1 tsp Lemon zest
1 tbs Parsley, fresh & chopped
3 1/2 lbs Chicken, cut into pieces
Whisk the vinegar, mustard, lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, and salt & pepper in a small bowl to blend. Combine vinegar marinade with chicken pieces in a large resealable plastic bag, seal the bag, and toss to coat chicken. Refrigerate, turning the chicken pieces occasionally, for at least two hours or up to one day (one day gives best results).
Preheat & season grill, remove chicken from bag and place on hot grill grates. Cook chicken until done, approx. 20 to 30 minutes. Transfer chicken to serving plate. Heat chicken broth to a boil in small saucepan. Thicken slightly with cornstarch slurry, if desired. Drizzle chicken broth over chicken pieces. Sprinkle lemon zest & chopped parsley over chicken & serve. Buon Appetito!

You might wonder if those “extra services” that the person you take your car to are really needed or if the price they are charging you is fair.
Someone once said that buying and servicing a car is like having a root canal without the anesthetic. We would like to offer you some advice that will not only act as an anesthetic, but actually turn the buying an servicing of cars into a pleasurable experience. If you listen to Earl Stewart on Cars, you will hear me quote Jim Press, the former CEO for Toyota for all of North America and the first non-Japanese to sit on Toyota’s board of directors, “The way you treat the customer when you do not owe them anything, like how you treat somebody who cannot fight back—that is the ultimate test of character.” This sums up Nancy’s and my ultimate goal which is to ensure that all car dealers and service departments in South Florida understand the truth of this statement.

FT. WORTH, TEXAS (March 16, 2015) – The 2015 Toyota Sienna “Swagger Wagon” showed its moves with its refreshed styling and added safety, convenience and multimedia features, earning it both Family Car of Texas and Minivan of Texas at the Texas Automotive Writers Association’s (TAWA) annual Auto Roundup event.
After a day of demanding driving at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas, journalists voted for their favorite vehicles in 18 different categories. This year 52 journalists attended the event and drove 54 vehicles from various manufacturers.
“As the only van in its segment available with all-wheel drive, the recognition as Family Car of Texas confirms our efforts to keep the family van alive and thriving,” said KC Kirimoto, vice president of product and global communications for Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. “Toyota’s commitment to enhancing the 2015 Sienna was focused not only on new safety features, but also the convenience and comfort of every member of the family.”
2015 Sienna is Perfect Fit for Families
The 2015 Sienna impressed Texas journalists with its style and comfort, from the subtle exterior styling refinements for a more upscale look to the new center console and dash design. Both passengers and drivers can enjoy the refreshed interior with added safety, convenience and multimedia features. Sienna’s new three-spoke heated steering wheel, available trimmed in leather or premium leather, ups the luxury ante.

It's great to be a good Samaritan from time to time, and there may be occasions when a friend, colleague, or family member asks to borrow your car. Given that your vehicle is such a valuable asset, it's not like lending somebody a bag of flour, though. In the event that somebody asks to borrow your car, it's worth thinking about whether it is actually such a good idea.
The most important thing to consider is whether it is legal. Any driver of your car must be fully insured. If you share the car with your wife or teens, then you will have an insurance policy that covers you all as drivers. This is far less likely to be the case when it comes to your friends and colleagues. They may have an insurance policy that covers them on any car, but that's fairly unusual, and even if they say they do, you really need to see evidence to be certain. Unless you can be certain that the borrower has the appropriate insurance, then lending your car is definitely not a good idea.
It's also worth considering what kind of driver the person is. If you know him or her well, and you know that he or she is conscientious and careful, then it might be OK. If he or she wants to borrow your car because he or she crashed his or her car into a wall, then perhaps it's time to think again. Even if the person is insured, they could do considerable damage and leave you without a car for a lengthy period of time.
Even if the car is returned with just a scratch or a dent on the door, how will you manage the conversation with the person that borrowed it? It could become difficult to prove who did it, leading to a lengthy wrangle over liability. Many friendships and relationships have been ruined by seemingly innocent little things.
After the legal considerations, damage to a relationship is probably the biggest risk when it comes to lending your car to somebody. How will he or she pay for the gas? Can you be certain that you won't be left with a speeding ticket? Do you have the kind of relationship where you can be confident that you aren't going to fall out over this? Cars are expensive item that can leave you with big repair bills and other problems. Be realistic and take the whole situation into account when considering watching one of your friends or colleagues drive off in your car.
The Internet has created myriad opportunities for families and children to expand their educational and cultural horizons. Kids no longer need to rely on parents and teachers to explore their interests. With this increased exposure to the good, unfortunately, comes the potential for increased exposure to the bad. These suggestions will help safeguard your child’s online activities.
Instruct. When it comes to kids’ online safety, parents must be proactive. Talk with your children and set clear guidelines with clear consequences. Explain what a child is to do if inappropriate photos, videos, or messages appear while online. Give clear instructions, such as "unplug the computer immediately and come tell mom or dad if inappropriate pictures come on the screen." In addition, it is imperative to tell children never to reveal personal information online. Prohibit chat rooms, unless they are associated with your child’s school or are moderated by a trustworthy adult. Never arrange face-to-face meetings with someone met online. Never respond to bulletin board posts that are suggestive or obscene. Never download pictures from an unknown source.
Observe. It is unrealistic to think that you’ll be available to look over your child’s shoulder every time he or she goes online, especially as they get older and with the advent of mobile devices that make the internet readily accessible all day, every day. If your child is old enough for unsupervised internet time, be on the lookout for behavioral patterns that could signify trouble. The FBI advises to look for specific behaviors if you suspect dangerous online activity. Signs include spending excessive time on the computer, especially at night, finding pornography on your child’s computer, phone calls to or from unknown numbers, receiving packages or gifts from an unknown person, turning the monitor off or clicking away from a window when you come in the room, acting withdrawn from the family, or using a secret online account. Caution your child, if appropriate, about sending suggestive photos electronically. They could end up online.
Prevent. It’s better to prevent danger than to wait for it to show up. Your child’s computer should be located in a well-trafficked area where you can observe online activity. Spend time with your kids online. Have them take you to their favorite sites. Check the internet history on frequently used browsers. Use computer passwords, if necessary. Install parental controls and blocking software that make certain sites inaccessible. Always maintain access to your child’s online accounts. Find out what safeguards are in place at your child’s friends’ houses and your child’s school.
Protect. Social networking has led to a new online danger: cyber-bullying. Instead of lunchroom taunts, where the perpetrator could be subjected to school punishments, the modern-day bully can often be found on Facebook, blogs, or other social networking sites. The Cyberbullying Research Center gives several suggestions to prevent cyberbullying. They include educating your children about cyberbullying, modeling appropriate internet use, monitoring online behavior, looking for warning signs, creating an Internet Use Contract for your child, and reinforcing strong moral values.
When safeguarding your child’s online activities--be it from identity thieves, bullies, pornographers, or sexual predators--parental involvement is the key. Be proactive, and if you suspect online danger, take action immediately.
All you really need to run is a good pair of running shoes, socks, a pair of shorts, and a T-shirt. As far as sports go, running is probably the most inexpensive pursuit out there. With all that money you save, you may want to pick up an accessory or two to make the run more pleasant.
Barefoot running, according to foot experts, incorporates the natural roll of the foot most effectively. However, it also can involve merciless pounding, extreme pain, and lacerations that far outweigh the benefits. That said, it’s recommended that you wear shoes while running, at least if you’re going to be hitting hard pavement. Buy shoes specifically tailored to running and to your feet from a store that knows about running and from salespeople that understand your feet. Supported insoles will help your running shoes and your feet last longer.
Runners have few enemies—rabid dogs, trucks driving through mud puddles, and blisters. Caution will protect an athlete from the first two. A good pair of running socks will take care of the third. Socks made from synthetic materials—polyester, for example—will keep your feet dry and less prone to blisters and discomfort.
Win-loss records and score boards don’t exist for runners, so progress and success is measured with a watch. The basic training watch that keeps track of time and allows for split times to be stored has now blossomed into an advanced watch that keeps track of distance, pace, heart rate, and the number of times you ask yourself why you you’re punishing yourself by running up hills. Some newer models even allow you to upload data into a computer to really impress your running friends.
Runners put up with enough discomfort as they repeatedly place one foot in front of the other, in quest of an improvement during their next 5k. Blindness shouldn’t be one of those discomforts. Keep in mind, however, that not just any sunglasses will do—you’ll need glasses specifically constructed for athletic activity. Basics include a snug fit, lightweight design, adjustable nose pads and frames, and non-fogging lenses.
Back in the day, you had to hide a bottle of Gatorade in the bushes the night before and hope it was still there the next morning when you were on the verge of passing out on mile 14 of your marathon training run. Worse, food had to be stored in your underwear. Not anymore. Fuel belts, running waist packs, and handled water bottle holders remove the hassles involved with hydrating and fueling during a long run.
Even the most avid joggers get bored. The monotony of running through the same neighborhood for six consecutive months leaves the brain longing for stimulation. Back in the day, runners were forced to lug around a portable CD player that skipped with every other step. Today’s MP3 players are lightweight and inexpensive. You’d be wise to have either a carrying case to protect against sweat and the occasional tumble, and you may want to buy an inexpensive model to use only when exercising.
Other running accessories you may be interested in include a jogging stroller, training log, runner I.D., reflective running gear, sweat bands, and healing ointment. Otherwise, feel free to keep it simple!
