We are very proud of him, along with the eleven other nominated members for taking a huge step to raise awareness and support for the men and women who are affected by breast cancer.

They say that age ain’t nothing but a number. Credit scores, on the other hand, are extremely important numbers that affect many potential endeavors in the adult world. There are lots of reasons to work towards a good credit score. May this list be the inspiration you need to improve yours.
Better Loan Approvals
Lenders like banks, credit unions, and even dealerships like Chip Wynn Motors use your credit score to determine how likely you are to pay back debt. Thus, the better credit score you have the better loan options you’ll get.
Better Chance of Getting an Apartment
Lenders aren’t the only ones interested in your history with debt. Landlords will also want to know your score. A good credit score means there’s a good chance you’ll pay rent on time.
Less Expensive Car Insurance
Car insurance companies see a bad credit score and make the assumption that a person will file lots of claims. Having a low score doesn’t mean you won’t be able to get insurance, but it might mean you’ll be paying a much higher premium.
Avoid Paying Deposit on Utilities
If a utility company sees that you have bad credit or no credit, they may ask for a deposit before turning on the utilities in your name. A good credit score will show them that you can pay your bills each month. Often times this is enough assurance for them to waive the deposit fee.
The Toyota Sienna is always out to impress, and the 2016 model year is no different, which was recently proven again when the 2016 Toyota Sienna was named a Top 10 Family Car by Parents Magazine and Edmunds.com.
The Toyota Sienna impresses first with its class-exclusive all-wheel drive. It’s the only minivan out there with the all-wheel drive stability you want and the space you need. Edmunds.com agrees, because the Sienna didn’t land on the Top 10 Family Car list without a good reason.
To earn a spot on the family car list, a car needs to rank high in many categories, like quality of ride, safety, comfort, efficiency, kid-friendly features, and more. Even physical attributes like unique styling and appearance make a difference.
“The endlessly roomy Sienna stands above its competitors for two reasons: It’s the only one with all-wheel drive, and the especially user-friendly controls help you stay focused on the road,” wrote Parents Magazine when explaining why the Sienna got the honor.
And they’re right. The 2016 Toyota Sienna is a great family ride. For trips, it’s a great vehicle because it offers up to 150 cubic feet of space. And with the Dual-View Entertainment Center, your kids will never get bored on trips.
