You Better Beelieve It!

Dreams really do come true! Let me tell you one of mine recently did. For my latest adventure I headed north to have a front row bee keeping experience.  I don’t remember when or why but I have always wanted to visit an apiary. Normally I’m terrified of bugs – spiders are my worst nightmare – but bees on the other hand don’t faze me. So I set out to find a local beekeeper that was willing to teach me a thing or two about the craft, and answer the million questions I was bound to ask. Boy, did I strike gold with Brian Scott. Based out of Innisfil, Brian Scott is the largest distributor of bees & bee equipment north of Toronto. With over 450 hives in South Simcoe County I think it’s safe to say he knows a thing or two about bees.

Pulling up to the apiary in the Jeep we were greeted by a family coming to purchase the fresh Honey that Innisfil Creek Honey sells, I knew it was a good sign. Being a new-bee to this experience I was honestly expecting to be zipped into a full bee suit – but to my surprise the bee suit isn’t necessary (unless you’re harvesting). Off we went to visit the hives that Mr. Scott had on his property.  Personally, I’ve never seen a hive up close so I was giddy when Brian started prying apart the sticky honey of each sheet of the hives. I think the highlight might have been when he instructed me to poke my figure through the honeycomb to taste fresh honey straight from the hive – there’s nothing like it! He also showed me his Queen Bees, being a breeder of Queens for his hives – it was very interesting to see the different kinds of bees.

You really feel at home when visiting Innisfil Creek Honey, with their self-serve honey stand stocked with everything from buckwheat honey to wild flower honey to creamed honey. We left with some of the buckwheat honey (to make some sweet BBQ sauce) and some wild flower honey for a sweeter variation. After talking with Brian it was clear he has found his passion with the bees, and you know what they say when someone loves what they do – it truly translates into their business. I can’t wait to go back for more! If you find your self in the area, I hope you’ll stop by Innisfil Creek Honey – it’s definitely worth the trip.  Brian has some future plans for his bees and mentioned that maybe a meadery might be in store.

We rolled around the South Simcoe county roads with the 2016 Jeep Wrangler and it could not have been a more perfect ride.  We were lucky enough to find a side road that served as a great backdrop for our photos. This vehicle was so smooth to drive and even though I’m used to driving more of the sedan size cars the Jeep was a welcomed departure. When they say go-everywhere, do-anything with a Jeep – I really beelieve it after spending an afternoon in this Wrangler. Climbing into the cab, you feel like the travel opportunities are endless. Though it was a loaner vehicle – I didn’t think it would be a good idea to do any off-roading but that didn’t stop me from finding a few back roads to explore! I can check being behind the wheel of a Jeep off my list!

I could not have asked for a better experience with the bees (or with the truck) – It was just one of those perfect days!

NewRoads Call Centre – Behind the Scenes

NewRoads Call Centre

 

Have you ever wondered who is behind those friendly voices that greet you when you call into a NewRoads dealership? Well, this summer I was fortunate enough to get to know each person responsible for the voices you hear.

 

When I began my work as a summer intern at NewRoads Mazda, I was placed in a room known as the ‘Call Centre’. Although I wasn’t hired to be a call rep, I would work in this room along with the marketing coordinator and the head of digital communications.

 

While it may seem like there is a vast amount of people responding to your calls (as the call reps always answer quickly and promptly), in reality, there are just five lovely individuals scheduling your service appointments.

 

Jeff and Melissa - NewRoads Call Centre

 

It didn’t take long for me to see that this call center would quickly become a place I look forward to entering everyday, and that the people working there would soon become more than work acquaintances. In fact, on just my third, Elise, the Call Centre Manager, and Melissa, a long time NewRoads employee, invited me to get my nails done with them after work.  Not only were they friendly to this newbie – their relationships extend far beyond the dealership.

 

Elise - NewRoads Call Centre

 

Between serving customers and phone calls, they chat about their home lives, families and life in general.  Sharing photos of adorable things their children did the previous night, or collaborating on parenting techniques, the Call Centre team is truly a family in itself.

 

Elise, the Call Centre manager, is married and the mother of a gorgeous little girl. Elise dresses fabulously and manages the Call Centre with a sense of ease and efficiency. She’s also into fitness, playing baseball, always eating healthy and regularly going to fitness classes with fellow NewRoads employee Melissa.

Melissa is best described as a beautiful person both inside and out. With her gorgeous long blonde hair and light blue eyes, she’s brought her lovely presence to NewRoads for 8 years. Customers always appreciate her kind and caring demeanour.

 

Jeff - NewRoads Call Centre

 

Jeff brings a positive and fun energy to the Call Centre and it’s easy to become happy after a quick conversation with him. Not only does Jeff work at the Call Centre, he’s also a professional make up artist and does fabulous transformations for his clients. He has one stunning daughter who, in my opinion, is very lucky to have such an awesome dad.

At 21 years old, Mykaela is the youngest one in the Call Centre. Her voice is calming and wonderfully enchanting, making it easy to call her over and over again. She’s known for regularly wearing flowery dresses and brings a lovely atmosphere to the room.

 

Amanda is one of the newer call reps and joined NewRoads a couple months after myself. She has lived in Newmarket all her life and coincidentally happens to be good friends with my cousin. Amanda fits right in with the NewRoads call crew and everyone is excited to have her on the team!

NewRoads Technician by Day, Car Enthusiast by Night

Chrysler Technician and Car Enthusiast

 

Daniel Earle is a long time Chrysler employee, who works at our NewRoads Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealership. Daniel’s passion for cars goes far beyond his job, as he regularly devotes his extra time to improving his vehicle.

 

Both solely and with a group of friends who call themselves the “Boosted Creations,” Daniel has worked on his car to modify features and make it stand out from the crowd. In fact, every Tuesday Daniel attends the “Hwy 11 Cruiser” events in which dedicated car fanatics meet to show off what modifications or in their words, “mods,” they have done to their car.

Daniel rolls up to the Hwy 11 Cruiser in his eblue SRT4 Neon, which he got in 2014 and has been ‘modding’ it ever since. He describes the many changes he has made that include a “3 inch Magna Flow Cat Back Exhaust, a 3 inch Down Pipe off Turbo, TWM Short Throw Shifter, Greedy Type R/S Blow Off Valve, Mopar 3D Retro Tail Lamps, 60 MM Mpx Throttle Body, and black housing headlamps. It also has a K&N Typhoon Long Ram cold air intake, Samco Silicone Rad Hoses and hot pipe and cold pipe blue hoses, Compstar Alarm and all the interment cluster light have been changed to blue LEDS.

 

Of all the alterations Daniel has done, his favorites are the magna flow exhaust and the greedy blow off valve, as it “makes the car sound mean on the street and really makes people turn their heads to see what is coming up the road.”

However, Daniel didn’t always turn heads with the dream car he drives now. He describes the experience of buying his first car, “The first car I bought was when I was 19 and it was a 1984 S10 pick up that was older then I was, but I loved it none the less. It was my first car and really my love for customizing a car started with that truck as I changed a lot of the interior pieces to be a different colour and changed it from a bench seat to bucket seats. I even added a roll bar in the box that I made fit from my grand fathers old Dakota that he was retiring and taking off the road.”

Following his dodge, Daniel purchased the car he drives now, (his 2014 SRT4 Neon) – named “Sonic Witch.” Daniel says, “I’ve always grown up with a Dodge background, for as long as I can remember my family drove and owned dodges. Back in 2013 my father was buying a car at S&B in Keswick and they had a brand new SRT4 in blue on their lot that I instantly fell in love with. Since then I always told myself I would own one, one day.”

 

There are still some modifications Daniel plans to complete and he concluded that “car modifying is a work in process, it’s a passion that runs deep with me and true love for the car.”
