Happy Tire Day!

Did you know that Tuesday, March 26, 2013 is actually “Make Your Own Holiday Day”? It’s a day that anyone is supposed to make up any day they wish, so we’re declaring today Tire Day. That’s just as much fun as, oh say… “Bunsen Burner Day” on March 31.

Today is actually, “National Goof Off Day”, so in celebration of that we’ll post a fun picture of cats in pajamas and wigs.

Custom License Plates in Minnesota

vanity plates mnWant to have a really cool custom license plate that you’ll always remember? You can apply to have custom license plates, also called vanity plates in Minnesota if you’re willing to pay about $110. According to the Minnesota DMV, you must select no more than 7 characters, and at least one alpha character needs to be included. This is for regular passenger vehicles.

Other than looking cool, vanity plates can help you remember your license plate when checking into a hotel that requires it on a form or helps a common vehicle stand out in a crowded parking lot. Although now days, people simply hit their panic buttons and let the noise guide them.

Do you have custom license plates? What’s the most clever one you’ve seen?

As soon as the snow melts people will be out walking, biking, jogging, and finding all kinds of reasons to be outside. Each year Minnesota bike enthusiasts, along with those with goals to improve health and/or environment team up to celebrate Bike to Work Week.

This year, Bike to Work Week is May 13-17, with National Bike to Work Day set for May 17, 2013. So dust off those bike tires, pump them up with air, and plan to participate if you can.For more information on this event and other bike related information in Minnesota, visit MN Bike Trail Navigator.

Don’t work on May 17th? Biking to school, errands or enjoyment on that day is a great idea too!
