A DAY AT THE LAKE WITH NEW FRIENDS

Sometime between 5:50-6:00 in the morning, I woke to coffee brewing and bump sounds in the garage.  Within seconds I remembered it was Saturday, lake day and picture taking day.  Lori and her new friends Aaron and Robert were shooting a feature on Bondorella for the Hagerty Classic Cars series, “Why I Drive.”  5:30am, maybe…

DELETE FILES / RESET HOSTING Don’t ever do this! We did a payed migration of our web hosting to CPanel (whatever that means) about a year ago. It didn’t go well but things still worked. The problem was we would get warnings we were running out of space etc. so a decision was made to…
