Eric and Mike talk about car repair and how to save money by (safely) avoiding potholes, as hitting potholes can have an impact on bearings that is pricey to fix. Rick asks us to consider celebrating New Years on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) so you can have a party and still get to bed at a decent hour. The unseasonably warm weather brings up concerns about bears coming out of hibernations and affected jobs including its impact on the sugaring season (also known as sap season) for maple syrup and landscapers. Eric discusses how active the bees are due to the warm temperatures and how to feed your hives to get them through the winter. Discussion about this also took place on the Backwards Beekeepers of New York CIty Facebook page. Mike and Eric hear from a number of viewers writing or calling in on a variety of topics including: making virtual (such as in Evernote) versus pen and paper lists, shopping at Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore in your area, the color a proper pickle should be, and beginner mushroom growing tips. Mike shares his favorite highlights from GardenFork’s Labrador Retriever New Years video show. Oh, and follow Mike on Twitter! @GFR_Mike

Avoid potholes (PH)? Avoid driving too fast (there is no speed you can drive over a PH without dropping unless ur vehicle and you are weightless, in which case u will fly instead) LOL.
Potholes drive slow and if safe, avoid them but as on driving over the animal on the road, drive it over rather than trying to avoid it. Always think safe of your passengers and bystanders. By all means, if you can react avoid even hitting the animal. Best option almost always, two hands on the wheel and slow down so the animal has time to move away. Check your rear too!
