DirectDrive Safe Driving App from Direct Auto Insurance


I was recently invited to take the DirectDrive app for a literal test-drive- it's an app designed by Direct Auto Insurance to help promote safe driving habits in a fun, competitive way. It allows you to log your driving trips using the app, and it will then score the trip based on your speed, acceleration and deceleration, how many miles logged, the distance of your trip, etc. It's a neat little app and will let you know how you're doing on each trip without having to register. But it won't let you access the leaderboards or log your trips unless … [Read more...]

Meatless Monday- Comforting Basil Gnocci Soup Recipe

meatless monday, basil gnocci soup, soup recipe, vegan

I've been on a real soup tear recently- I've had the worst case of walking pneumonia that knocked me out for three solid weeks. So soup has been on my mind much more than usual. A comforting vegetarian chicken-style soup seemed like the best possible idea once I recovered enough to cook a little. I craved basil pretty heavily too, since I'm missing summer time and my favorite summer herb. I put together this simple soup that's easy to cook and amazingly delicious after just a short 30 minute simmer. The No-Chicken Bullion does a lot of the 'heavy … [Read more...]
