A vehicle's suspension system is tough. It can last for years and tens of thousands of miles for Little Rock motorists. But it can be damaged quickly by hitting a pothole, curb or rock, and it can wear more quickly if you frequently drive off-road or on bumpy roads. A workhorse vehicle - one that hauls heavy loads - is also going to be hard on its suspension system. An ineffective suspension system will diminish the driver's control over a vehicle, so when it is damaged it frequently leads to the worst kind of vehicular damage - dangerous and expensive accidents. The suspension system is composed of springs and shock absorbers (or shocks). Over time, steering and suspension components wear out and require replacement. Regular checks are critical to maintain a safe car. Factors that affect wear include: Driving habits Operating conditions (potholes in road) Vehicle type Type of steering and suspension system Frequency of regular maintenance such as chassis lubrication and wheel alignment

March 19, 2015 - Two new exhibits, featuring over 125 rare artifacts, open today at Elvis Presley’s famous Memphis mansion. The exhibits, curated by the Graceland Archives team, celebrate Elvis’ status as a music pioneer and icon who revolutionized rock ‘n’ roll music. The two new exhibits opening at Graceland are: · “I Shot Elvis” From the earliest days of Elvis Presley's career, professional photographers and fans captured him in photographs. These images and artifacts give us a personal look at both the man and the icon, and a unique insight into the cultural impact he had, and continues to have, on the world. From a snapshot of a young Elvis just breaking through as a performer, to exhilarating photos of him live on stage, to more intimate moments with family and friends, these powerful images tell the story of Elvis Presley's life and legacy as only great photographs can. In addition to celebrating the photographers and fans who were behind the camera, the exhibit features artifacts seen in the iconic photographs. · “Elvis: That’s the Way It Is” at 45 This groundbreaking feature documentary depicts Elvis as a master showman, following him as he prepares for his big opening night performance in Las Vegas. The film covers Elvis’ Summer Festival in Las Vegas during August 1970. This was his first documentary film since the beginning of his film career in 1956. The exhibit features numerous artifacts seen in the film, and from that period in Elvis’ career, including stage costumes, guitars, jumpsuits, contracts, memorabilia and more. The “Elvis: That’s the Way It Is” at 45 exhibit will be in place until February 2016 and the “I Shot Elvis” exhibit will be in place through February 2017. In honor of the new exhibits, Graceland has created the Get Closer to Rock 'n' Roll Package for visitors to Graceland, providing guests a chance to “get closer to the man who changed the world with his music” when they visit the home he loved and lived in for 20 years.

We were just flat out of suitable little dogs today. Oh well, how about a moderate sized, older black lab mix, maybe three feet long? Tish is a TOTAL sweetheart. She's an older girl, about six years old, with a lovely gray muzzle. She's listed as a lab mix, but I suspect some border collie in the mix. I don't have any information on her backstory, but EVERYBODY at the shelter raves about how wonderful she is. She has obviously been somebody's pet, because she is familiar with being in a house, jumping into a car, will sit on command, etc. She seems to be housebroken. An older girl, she would be GREAT for a family or individual wanting or needing a lower-energy companion. She dozed quietly for an hour or two after introductions to our dogs in the back yard. She seems to be getting along with our dogs ok, sniffing each other but not much interaction. She has the makings of a real couch potato. A running buddy for five mile jogs? -- probably not. A wonderful and loving companion? Most definitely. Flag for follow up. Start by Tuesday, March 17, 2015. Due by Tuesday, March 17, 2015. I'm slated to be the HSPC volunteer this week. Nothing particular to plug this weekend. Might be a good time to remind viewers that they can keep up with us on our website, and that Sandra Cone is still in a nationwide voting contest that could bring some money to the HSPC Shelter 1.
