I learned to drive in my dad's Suburban, long before the soccer mom was even invented. My dad had a Suburban so he could take the seats out, put his john-boat in the back and go fishing. That's why they were called "sport utility vehicles".

Now the proper name is "urban assault vehicle".

The term SUV covers two very different kind of vehicles. Some are actually smallish cars jacked up high, the ones that look like Jeeps and roll over in any crosswind over 10 MPH. Others are like the Suburban, the Navigator, etc. -- a living room built on a truck chassis.

Minivans are a little lower and shorter than the latter category of SUV. They're more like overgrown station wagons. If you've got to drive seven people around on a regular basis, a minivan is a small compromise with the devil. As opposed to a full-sized SUV, which is the devil's work itself.

My uncle's music school in San Francisco, Sunset Academy of Music. He's a really great guitar teacher for adults or kids, a good listener with a sense of humor and intuitive understanding of teaching.
