had a great buying experience here....they answered all my questions and were very accommodating when it came to test driving. They were obviously there to sell cars but didn't make me feel uncomfortable by being overly pushy. However I had spent months doing research and going over my resources.....so I was armed and ready when I went in. As a woman however I felt that they didn't treat me differently. We quickly got done what we needed to to put me in my new car and knowing people who had purchased from them before I feel confident that they will fully back what they have sold!

Being a Disney film.....Secretariat was very well done. I recommend seeing it on the big screen because in the racing and training scenes...you feel like you are there. Based on the true story of Penny Chennery Tweedy and how she got into racing with her mother's passing and her father's dementia....her spirit and strength provided her with the means to make Secretariat a star.

Penny Tweedy was a consultant so the story was well told. I had a concern as to whether John Malkovich was the right choice to play a French Canadian horse trainer (ex jockey) but those concerns were put to rest...he was great!!!!

I had seen Diane Lane in a lot of films.....she was really really good in this one.

I remember as a teenager watching Secretariat and his rise to fame...I still get goose bumps and tear up when I watch you tube videos of his Derby and Belmont, and having missed out on Man O' War and Seabiscuit....he was in my era....I even have a polaroid I took of him in his paddock at Claiborne Farms in the 80's.

What this horse did was unmatched even today...what they didn't know at the time (until a necropsy) was that his heart was nearly twice the size of a normal horse....that boy could pump some blood!!!!! They said he was a machine but none of them knew how close that was to being correct.

The film has humor, happiness, sadness, excitement....just about everything almost anyone can enjoy. I saw teeny bopper girls cheering him on in the theater. I had memories flood back of being a young girl watching the races on tv.

Being Disney the music is fitting and doesn't run you out of the theater by being too loud and overbearing.

Drawback....I know the story is about Secretariat but there were other horses in the stable...Riva Ridge made his own run at the Triple Crown the year before....losing the Preakness in the mud....he wasn't even mentioned. It made it look like Secretariat was the only horse there.....Secretariat won the Horse of the Year as a two year old.....Riva Ridge, his three year old stablemate was the other major contender.

This film was pretty true to what I know about Secretariat and the people around him.....it was very well done and exciting to watch. The race scenes made you feel like you were there and the shots of the horses and scenery were breathtaking.......a great picture for everyone!!!!

I have a hate hate relationship with banks......I am now with a credit union which is much more customer friendly and because it is basically locally owned if I were to need to speak to a "higher up", I wouldn't have to jump through hoops to do it. They are more lax on some of the rules when you have a relationship with them.

The last bank I was with totally screwed me over. I used to deposit paychecks on Friday afternoon. Before the bank was sold to an out of state owner....if I deposited after 2:00pm often they would go ahead and let it count same day.......if not at least on Monday I could access my funds. Once the new ownership took over I started bouncing checks at $39 a pop....when I asked why that was they told me that my deposits after 2:00pm on Friday were not available to me until midnight monday....in other words Tuesday...I had to completely change my check writing habits....they had ZERO problem withdrawing my money immediately but then thought they could use my deposits for a couple days before letting ME use it....after losing a bunch of money this way I walked......heard this about other banks too......sticking with my credit union!!!!!
