"I am VERY pressed by the torquey, tire burning performance of this engine in a 2013 Chevy Impala I rented this week from Hertz. This motor feels like a V8 and although it guzzles gas when you get on it, man oh man does this engine make the Impala shake its tail feathers! #Chevy #Hertz #BadAssMotor "

Attention Fathers of Daughters: 50 Rules To Father By

I was poking around Micah Birkholz Facebook posts and came across the 50 Rules for Fathers of Daughters REPOSTED below... After wiping away a few tears I fought hard to hold back, it was irresistible to share this wisdom with my friends online... If you have a young daughter, take this guidance to heart... Mine are grown up and the items on this list I was able to do, I am thankful for... For the others, I wish I had!

"I was in tears as I read through this list, as I'm sure many grown daughters will be. Mothers – bookmark this list of rules and encourage your daughter's daddy to read them, memorize them, and put them in to action. And, to all you Dads out there – be sure you pay close attention and heed these wise words."

About Michael Michael Mitchell is an (almost) thirty-something dad who blogs daily tips and life lessons for dads of daughters at lifetoheryears.com. He spends his days practicing the arts of fatherhood and husbandry, while attempting to be a man of God and a professional raiser of philanthropic funds. On the rare occasion he's not tied up with the aforementioned and other pursuits of awesomeness, he enjoys fighting street gangs for local charities and drinking from a cup that's half full. Bookmark Life To Her Years, follow Michael on Twitter, and "like" him on Facebook for more "rules".


1. Love her mom. Treat her mother with respect, honor, and a big heaping spoonful of public displays of affection. When she grows up, the odds are good she'll fall in love with and marry someone who treats her much like you treated her mother. Good or bad, that's just the way it is. I'd prefer good.


2. Always be there. Quality time doesn't happen without quantity time. Hang out together for no other reason than just to be in each other's presence. Be genuinely interested in the things that interest her. She needs her dad to be involved in her life at every stage. Don't just sit idly by while she add years to her… add life to her years.


3. Save the day. She'll grow up looking for a hero. It might as well be you. She'll need you to come through for her over and over again throughout her life. Rise to the occasion. Red cape and blue tights optional.


4. Savor every moment you have together. Today she's crawling around the house in diapers, tomorrow you're handing her the keys to the car, and before you know it, you're walking her down the aisle. Some day soon, hanging out with her old man won't be the bees knees anymore. Life happens pretty fast. You better cherish it while you can.


5. Pray for her. Regularly. Passionately. Continually.


6. Buy her a glove and teach her to throw a baseball. Make her proud to throw like a girl… a girl with a wicked slider.


7. She will fight with her mother. Choose sides wisely.


8. Go ahead. Buy her those pearls.


9. Of course you look silly playing peek-a-boo. You should play anyway.


10. Enjoy the wonder of bath time.


11. There will come a day when she asks for a puppy. Don't over think it. At least one time in her life, just say, "Yes."


12. It's never too early to start teaching her about money. She will still probably suck you dry as a teenager… and on her wedding day.


13. Make pancakes in the shape of her age for breakfast on her birthday. In a pinch, donuts with pink sprinkles and a candle will suffice.


14. Buy her a pair of Chucks as soon as she starts walking. She won't always want to wear matching shoes with her old man.

15. Dance with her. Start when she's a little girl or even when she's a baby. Don't wait 'til her wedding day.


16. Take her fishing. She will probably squirm more than the worm on your hook. That's OK.


17. Learn to say no. She may pitch a fit today, but someday you'll both be glad you stuck to your guns.


18. Tell her she's beautiful. Say it over and over again. Someday an animated movie or "beauty" magazine will try to convince her otherwise.


19. Teach her to change a flat. A tire without air need not be a major panic inducing event in her life. She'll still call you crying the first time it happens.


20. Take her camping. Immerse her in the great outdoors. Watch her eyes fill with wonder the first time she sees the beauty of wide open spaces. Leave the iPod at home.


21. Let her hold the wheel. She will always remember when daddy let her drive.


22. She's as smart as any boy. Make sure she knows that.


23. When she learns to give kisses, she will want to plant them all over your face. Encourage this practice.


24. Knowing how to eat sunflower seeds correctly will not help her get into a good college. Teach her anyway.


25. Letting her ride on your shoulders is pure magic. Do it now while you have a strong back and she's still tiny.


26. It is in her nature to make music. It's up to you to introduce her to the joy of socks on a wooden floor.


27. If there's a splash park near your home, take her there often. She will be drawn to the water like a duck to a puddle.


28. She will eagerly await your return home from work in the evenings. Don't be late.


29. If her mom enrolls her in swim lessons, make sure you get in the pool too. Don't be intimidated if there are no other dads there. It's their loss.


30. Never miss her birthday. In ten years she won't remember the present you gave her. She will remember if you weren't there.


31. Teach her to roller skate. Watch her confidence soar.


32. Let her roll around in the grass. It's good for her soul. It's not bad for yours either.


33. Take her swimsuit shopping. Don't be afraid to veto some of her choices, but resist the urge to buy her full-body beach pajamas.


34. Somewhere between the time she turns three and her sixth birthday, the odds are good that she will ask you to marry her. Let her down gently.


35. She'll probably want to crawl in bed with you after a nightmare. This is a good thing.


36. Few things in life are more comforting to a crying little girl than her father's hand. Never forget this.


37. Introduce her to the swings at your local park. She'll squeal for you to push her higher and faster. Her definition of "higher and faster" is probably not the same as yours. Keep that in mind.


38. When she's a bit older, your definition of higher and faster will be a lot closer to hers. When that day comes, go ahead… give it all you've got.


39. Holding her upside down by the legs while she giggles and screams uncontrollably is great for your biceps. WARNING: She has no concept of muscle fatigue.


40. She might ask you to buy her a pony on her birthday. Unless you live on a farm, do not buy her a pony on her birthday. It's OK to rent one though.


41. Take it easy on the presents for her birthday and Christmas. Instead, give her the gift of experiences you can share together.


42. Let her know she can always come home. No matter what.


43. Remember, just like a butterfly, she too will spread her wings and fly some day. Enjoy her caterpillar years.


44. Write her a handwritten letter every year on her birthday. Give them to her when she goes off to college, becomes a mother herself, or when you think she needs them most.


45. Learn to trust her. Gradually give her more freedom as she gets older. She will rise to the expectations you set for her.


46. When in doubt, trust your heart. She already does.


47. When your teenage daughter is upset, learning when to engage and when to back off will add years to YOUR life. If you succeed in doing this, tell me how.


48. Ice cream covers over a multitude of sins. Know her favorite flavor.


49. This day is coming soon. There's nothing you can do to be ready for it. The sooner you accept this fact, the easier it will be.


50. Today she's walking down the driveway to get on the school bus. Tomorrow she's going off to college. Don't blink.

"Imagine the conversation during the meeting of beverage marketers when the brand name "Cocaine" was chosen... LMAO when I bought 2 cans for $4 in a Las Vegas Northside hood 7-Eleven. I give 'em credit... Instead of screwing around with suggestive names that imply ingredients that are so powerful they probably SHOULD be illegal, this Johnny Come Lately newcomer to the Energy Beverage band wagon has decided to help drive more people to AutoCon... Meanwhile the lover boy with a penchant for being seduced by MILF's is now ready to ROCK 'N ROLL!!!!"
