16 Things About the 2015 Chevrolet Equinox LTZ

Chevy Equinox

I test drove a 2015 Chevrolet Equinox LTZ for five days. After driving the compact SUV for almost a week, I can honestly say I love it. I will definately keep this SUV in mind when I’m ready to buy another vehicle. To be honest, I wasn’t even thinking about purchasing an American car in the future. My last American car was a 1995 Jeep Cherokee. It had too many problems. The final straw was when three of the four engine bolts broke off while I was driving. It’s a good thing I wasn’t speeding along on the freeway when that happened. That would have been really bad. I only drove the Chevrolet Equinox for five days, but the car changed my perception of American-made vehicles. The Equinox seems to be really well made. I was very impressed with the quality of the car, the way it drove, and its features. BTW, the Equinox was a loaner as part of the Chevy Shop Social: Portland fundraiser for Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.

Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Best in Show DVD Review

Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Best in Show

My two youngest children and I watched the new Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Best in Show over the weekend. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment sent me the DVD for review on my dad blog. The latest DVD features three episodes from the Strawberry Shortcake series. As usual, the characters are adorable. But because each of the episodes featured puppies, the episodes were cuter than usual. BTW, for a limited time, the DVD includes a digital copy of the Perfect Puppy via Cupcake Digital. Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Best in Show is available now on DVD.

Adventures of Chuck & Friends Review and Giveaway – win Day at the Races DVD

The Adventures Of Chuck And Friends: Day At The Races

The little dude (kindergarten) and I watched the new Adventures of Chuck & Friends DVD recently. The new title is called The Adventures of Chuck & Friends: Day at the Races. It features ten episodes — some related to racing and some not. The DVD is about a group of animated and cute vehicles. It is almost two hours long, but my son watched all the episodes in one sitting (with a few short breaks). I guess that means he likes the DVD. Thanks to Shout! Factory Kids and Hasbro Studios, a reader of my dad blog will win the new Adventures Of Chuck And Friends DVD. The Adventures of Chuck & Friends: Day at the Races will be available on DVD on May 19th for $12.99. BTW, The Adventures of Chuck & Friends series is currently airing on The Hub TV Network in the U.S. and on Treehouse in Canada. Continue reading to find out how to win this DVD.

Chevy Equinox

Guess what I will be doing in the next five days? If you guessed trying out for the Portland Trail Blazers then you would be wrong. I’m too short and not particularly athletic. At least not anymore. But I am taking part in a special fund-raiser event for Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation. For five days, I will be driving around in a new Chevy Equinox (this is a fabulous SUV) while shopping around the city for awesome items to be raffled off in the Chevy Shop Social: Portland. The special event will take place in Pioneer Square on May 21st (6pm to 8:30 pm).
