Back in the day when Taurus reigned, it was the whip du jour for the 40+ crowd, especially women, who knew they had it going-on and only bought American. Continue reading

During the era in which I came of age–you know, good paying job, nice house, nice whip–there was nothing like stopping at the first floor confectionary counter following a shopping spree at Neiman Marcus! Continue reading

Adventures in Kauai By Michael Andre Adams
How many times have you heard it said that Hawaii is for lovers? Over and over again, it is the story I get from nearly every visitor to various islands, most of which are described as lusciously green and serene and not the place to go with plutonic friends. So, when the invitation came to experience adventure on the island of Kauai, out of sheer curiosity, I agreed.

Although summer temperatures have fallen, it’s still hot in Hot’lanta! And the hot, new, 2009 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV was the perfect vehicle to cruise around town like a superstar.
Have you seen this car yet? At first glance I didn’t even recognize the all new body design—not that there was a thing wrong with last year’s version! At $35K looking like $50K, the body design is curvaceously chic, somewhat masculine with lots of finesse. Inside they kept is simple on the dashboard, with shift paddles on the steering wheel and a separate moon-roof for rear seat passengers.
Heads turned everywhere I pulled up in the city, starting with the Rahsaan Patterson (pictured with with the author) www.rahsaan.com, Lalah Hathaway http://www.lalahhathaway.com and Rick Braun http://www.rickbraun.com concert at the Civic Center. Rahsaan just tore it up! I tell you, that brotha can sing.
And if you haven’t picked it up yet, his new CD, Wine & Spirits, is definitely on point (surely you’ve heard the single, “Feels Good”). Combining the style of soul, jazz, dance and pop, Patterson launches a new Christmas CD, The Ultimate Gift, with such classics as “What Christmas Means to Me,” and “The Little Drummer Boy.” Be it live or Memorex, this brother has vocal skills!

Traveling In My World by Michael Andre Adams for HW
Surprisingly, August was somewhat mild in Atlanta in terms of temperatures, which made cruising the city in this Limited Edition 2008 Saab 9-3 Lynx Yellow Convertible a show stopping adventure.
Debuting mid way through 2008 and fully loaded at the $44,000 Aero trim level, Saab set if off with a fully automatic soft top, a 250 horsepower turbo engine with a standard 6-speed manual transmission that won’t kill you on gas (takes premium unleaded), those cool xenon headlights and OnStar in place of a navigation system. This is perfect weekend whip whether you’re living in the city or the burbs! Continue reading
