Life in the Slow Lane

Jan 11th, 2019 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

I think I’m in the slow lane when it comes to figuring out how to get the best benefits from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat. When it comes to learning new and updated technology, the fact that I’m in a lane at all is a […]

I recently heard that regardless of careers or the income of working women, they still do more household chores than working men. While there’s been some headway in the parity or represented equality between men and women, have we really made — as one report […]



Do You Use Only 10 Percent?

Dec 28th, 2018 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

I’m so impressed by each year’s Tow Times Shine ‘n Star winners. I know the truck owners are proud, but the manufacturers of these awesome pieces of equipment should also be proud to have their trucks in the magazine. Added to this are the artists who design […]
