• For $19, you get an on-location, high-mileage conventional oil change (a $40 value). • For $29, you get an on-location, synthetic oil change (a $70 value). On Location Lubrication's handy auto experts take the grunt work out of caring for a four-wheeled companion by making house and office calls to thirsty transports. Buggies vacant of lubrication can guzzle 5 quarts of fresh, forward-looking synthetic oil. Or, tempt the bored bucket to try a new taste with O.L.L.'s high-mileage oils, which are infused with additives designed to rejuvenate age-ridden seals in engines old enough to remember walking themselves to school—uphill, both ways. Relinquishing the old, worn-out filter, your car will rev its engine in satisfied appreciation as the mobile handymen swap in a new, uncorrupted one. The friendly vehicle vets also check and top off the windshield-wiper, radiator, brake, and power-steering fluids before sending the newly slicked roaster safely on its way.
Classic Elegance Limousine Service packs its newly refurbished 14-passenger limo party bus with sensory stimulation for the discerning party posse. The sound system administers an auditory wet willy of delight with dual 12-inch subwoofers and six Sony speakers attached to iPod and MP3 hookups. A 32-inch flat-screen TV comes stocked with a library of music videos, a PlayStation 3, and Blue-ray and DVD players. Tinted-black windows protect the eyes from the harsh glare of pedestrian jealousy so that you can completely lose yourself in the 550 colored LED lights, two lasers, whirling disco ball, and four strobe lights. The bus is also equipped with a wet bar that includes stemware and ice bins. Libations are not provided, but there’s no shame in hauling your own store-bought or bathtub-brewed beverages.
Snakes slither in glass display cases, and lizards wriggle in the hands of trained handlers as they're held up in full view of a curious crowd. This is the scene as one of Repticon's presenters educates attendees on the biology, behavior, and typing speeds of exotic cold-blooded creatures at one of the year-round shows held in cities across the country. Reptile and amphibian breeders, scholars, and handlers engage audiences in lectures and demonstrations in the midst of live reptile exhibits, family activities, and displays for exotic-pet supplies. Presentations may focus on the genetics of large snake species, the specifics of exotic-pet care, and the effect that tiny hats have on the image of arachnids such as tarantulas, scorpions, and spiders.
With a 12-year basketball career spent in the NBA minor league and FIBA Europe, BeReady director Ben Ebong believes the academy's vision is bigger than basketball alone. The game has had a profound influence on his life. It’s taught him to be a leader, face challenges, deal with disappointment, and become a valuable member of a team. These are the same principles he instills in the players at each youth basketball camp. With the help of experienced coaches and professional speakers, the academy's program aims to build character in addition to athletic training. While learning fundamental basketball skills, students will begin to understand the discipline needed to compete at a high level and appreciate the importance of an active lifestyle. Much like team mascots who preemptively glue their heads on before doing backflips, they’ll learn to set goals and draw up plans of action for achieving them.
