I'm hoping to drive my old beater into the ground before we need to get another car, but I'm on the lookout. What's your next car going to be?
My wife and I drive a perfectly good 2002 Nissan Sentra with 127,318 miles on it. "Stella" has four wheels and gets us from Point A to Point B. We've reached the stage in the life of the car where we don't repair body damage (as you can tell from the accompanying photo). I'm ashamed for my Dad to see it. But hey, it's paid for. Even though I'd love to get 200K miles out of Stella, she has some mechanical problems, like a seized bolt that has left the transmission fluid unchangeable for about eight years. She could conk out any old day. So we've been on the lookout for our next car. I'm paying attention to car commercials, asking friends about their cars. You know the feeling. We're looking for something that gets good gas mileage, and is …

Jeff Backer runs the Grafton farm using organic practices and is raising six heads of grass-fed beef cattle.
For visitors to the Grafton Farmers Market Jeff Backer might be a familiar face, but according to Backer many people are still discovering the fresh vegetables he grows using organic practices. Backer started Potter Hill Farm in 2011 and has since grown his operation, which started as less than one acre of vegetables and four beef cattle, to six beef cattle and two acres of vegetable garden. The Potter Hill Farm sits on 33 acres of land that Backer leases from the Grafton Land Trust. As a part of the lease agreement Backer must maintain a portion of the property as open space where residents can enjoy the views and spend time in a natural setting.

Whether you want a fun weekend car or something you can enjoy every day during your commute; we have five vehicles sure to meet your needs.
Sports cars encompass a broad category of vehicles with one main goal — to put a smile on your face. That giddy grin can plaster itself on your face for a number of different reasons. Some people yearn for straight-line speed while others find the simple joy in placing a vehicle exactly where they want it to go. Regardless of whether you enjoy outright pace or pacing yourself through the turns, we have gathered five sports cars that should do the trick. What we have here is a very special incarnation of the long-lived Mazda Miata.
