What If?

What if? It’s a question with two simple words, but it can be packed with a lot of punch in wonder, excitement and emotion. Can you imagine all of the inventions and discoveries that have been found by someone starting with “what if?” Problems and […]



It’s Not on the Agenda

May 25th, 2014 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

I’ve found that as humans, we share a common kinship — life isn’t good all the time. Sometimes you really have to fight to remain calm and keep that smile on your face. I expected Monday to be a typical day of catching up with […]



Show Me the Money!

I was looking at the Tow Times website and noticed an article under the News Update section about a tow truck driver from Arkansas, John “Bopper” Richardson.- In the interview, John explained that his grandfather called him Bopper when he was a kid and the […]



Spring Cleaning

Mar 31st, 2014 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

The calendar says spring has sprung and yes, it is a bit warmer — plenty of blue skies and sunshine anyway — and I have to admit I do feel I have a little more “spring” to my step (must be because I’m getting a […]



March Madness
