Thoughts on Being a Neighbor to Ellicott City

by Rosalyn Williams on Tue, Jun 05, 2018

The recent flooding in Ellicott City was a stark reminder of a couple of things. First of all, that as neighbors, when some are negatively impacted, we are all negatively impacted. Secondly, it underscored the importance of planned development.

The Howard County Citizen's Association is hosting an event on Monday, June 11th at 6PM that addresses these issues. The event provides an opportunity to 1) get to know some of your neighbors better, including BA Auto Care's neighbor, Hysteria Brewing Company, 2) to learn how you can help to foster planned, responsible development via the film, :Columbia at 50 - A Bridge to the Future," and 3) to contribute to the disaster relief fund for Ellicott City -- all at the same time.

All of the proceeds from the $5 admission fee will be donated to the Ellicott City Disaster Relief Fund. Plus, attendees will receive the book, "Columbia, A Celebration" and a FREE beer -- over a $40 value for just $5.New call-to-action

As a business operating in Howard County, we make it a point to get to know our neighbors. In our current times, when so many transactions happen online, many people think that knowing the people who live or run a business near us isn't important. And then, something happens that brings us closer together. Unfortunately, it's usually a tragedy like what's happened to the Ellicott City Main Street Community. When you know the people behind the headlines, it becomes more than just a news story.

Something I Got From My Auto Repair Shop That I Never Expected

by Rosalyn Williams on Sat, Mar 15, 2014

It’s probably a good idea to start out this blog post talking about me and maintenance; it’s a constant challenge. Here are some examples:

  • I’ve owned a home as a single woman for 13 years, and I’ve only had my furnace inspected and cleaned about 3 of those years. Yes, I know I it’s supposed to be done every year; it’s just that this item never seems to move to the top of my to-do list.
  • I know everything you ever wanted to know about sealing a home for energy efficiency because I worked for DAP, a caulk and sealant manufacturer for nine years, yet so much cold air comes in from under my kitchen door (and through many windows) that we sometimes have ice inside on the floor & on the windows. Pretty bad, huh?
  • When I first became a single mom, after my divorce, I simply forgot that cars needed regular maintenance (or maybe I was confused since the maintenance manuals stopped around 60,000 miles & my ex-husband used to take care of the cars). Whatever the case may be, I owned a Dodge Caravan that lived on oil changes & repairs only. A couple of times, the repairs were botched, (and one botched repair even cost me a friendship since I missed an important commitment, but I digress). Unfortunately that Dodge Caravan didn’t live too long.

Anyway, that’s just for perspective…

And then, about four years ago I started getting my car repaired at BA Auto Care. Before that, I went to different places like Pep Boys, a shell gas station near my job, quick lube places, and finally, for a few of my cars, to the dealer. My preference was fast and cheap, but with my last few cars, I tried to follow the manufacturer’s recommendation and went to the dealer for the recommended service intervals because I wanted my cars to last.
