If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times: Do not let your friends and family members use their brother-in-law’s uncle’s hamster owner to help him purchase or sell one of the largest financial assets they own — i.e., their home. Thousands of dollars could be left on the table as a result.
As colleges in Ogden begin to resume in-person instruction in the fall, students returning to campus will again tackle the reality of the expenses of college. An average student in Ogden can easily spend more than $50,000 on rent, transportation and personal expenses throughout their four-ye…

We always love the opportunity to drive a Volkswagen and admit that we have owned a couple in years gone by. The Tiguan is a great, smaller SUV and so easy to get around in; we always love our time motoring around with it. The steering in the VW is always so light and easy, making it almost effortless to get in and out of tight spaces with.
Growing up in the suburbs of Pleasant Town, Utah, USA (names have been changed to avoid offending anyone currently residing there) and being a member of one of the few existing less-than-traditional-type families in said city, we took it upon ourselves to liven the place up a bit — in the fo…

When I first got my new Polaris RZR XP 1000 Premium, I made it street-legal and installed an LED light bar. I am using the word “I” loosely. My grandson, Mark Blamires, helped me install those kits. OK, I sat close by and said things like, “Can I get you another Mountain Dew?” I just feel lu…

Getting a Prius for a week is always something that we look forward to as it always seems to become a contest to see just how many miles per gallon we can eek out of the original Toyota Hybrid. This week being no different we took it upon ourselves to drive the sedan normally, take a longer road trip, and get in as many miles in the provided tank of gas as possible, without having to fill the tank again.
