Whale Watch: Rancho Palos Verdes

September 25th, 2010

Should the krill be passing through,
Trust R.P.V. for a blue whale view.

You will see them surface and blow,
From land know this is tough to photo.

The Back Road from Rancho Mirage.

High above the desert floor on this road you will glide.
High above the desert floor it’s a spectacular ride.
High above the desert floor one can see forevermore.
By this road find the glory where you locate the door.

But…, a hundred and twenty degree “F” is pretty darn hot.
And this place seems unforgiving for your head to pop.

So if you climb this road in the dead heat of summer,
Best ensure your cooling systems nots’to be a bummer.

Automotive Transmission Problems? Call Hiro’s Transmissions of Gardena, CA.

August 31st, 2010

When it comes to repairing automobile transmissions, Hiro’s Transmissions of Gardena, California would seem to be true heroes. ( The honesty of the staff at Hiro’s Transmissions has personally saved me thousands of dollars over the years in transmission-related repair costs. By preventing on-coming vehicle malfunctions and any possible and subsequent calamities such malfunctions could cause, the knowledge of the staff at Hiro’s Transmissions has likely saved my live.

The only thing I can think to add to this blog matter is to say that when it comes to transmission repair, I can always trust the forthright nature of Hiro’s Transmissions of Gardena and I hope to never have to take my vehicle anywhere else for transmission repairs. Not to say that this matter is mutually exclusive nor to say that one would not be able to find another honest and high-quality transmission repair shop elsewhere; just to say that having found Hiro’s Transmission, I hope that I never have to take my vehicle anywhere else for transmission repair. :)
