  1. I got a 2001 Dodge Stratus SE which has about 81,000miles on it now. I love it since it's a lot more roomy and better than my crummy old car I had for a year.

     

    I've had the stratus for almost a year now and so far it's been great

    Front of my car when I got it. Now it has a hole in one of the grill sections and no front plate since my sister hit a trucks trailer hitch with my car. Grrr

  2. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't thing a debit card does anything for your credit history.

     

    No, it doesn't. Credit History is effected by things like loans, student loans (in your name), paying bills on time, etc. Pretty much everything under the sun that you charge and have to pay back later on.

     

    As for me, I got both a debit card and credit card. I got a debit card when I turned 18, and that's when I opened a checking account at my credit union. Fast foward to when I was 20, my parents recommended to me when we were at the cambridge house for dinner, that I get a credit card. They said I should get a Discover Card and they trust me in being very responsible with it. And I have been. Except this month sucks because when I was down in Virgina I hit the limit (I got a credit limit of 1,000, but the discover locked me at around 800) so all this month I've just been paying it off piece by piece, and I figured out that I just need to put in 200 for the next couple of weeks and I can get that zeroed out.

     

    Sometimes I wish i was working full time because I need to worry about my car loan bills plus the credit card bills on top.

  3. It may or may not help, but this is a relaxation technique I learned when I was younger. You basically put your body to sleep one body part at a time.

    You lay in whatever position is the most comfortable. Then you start at your toes, and think "Goodnight toes" and take two deep breaths. Then "Goodnight ankles" and two more deep breaths. Keep doing that until you've said goodnight to every body part. And once you put a body part "to sleep" you pretend like it's asleep, so you don't move it. If I'm having trouble falling asleep, I'll do this and almost never make it all the way to my head!

    It sounds pretty silly, but I've never found a relaxation technique that works this well!

    I do something similar to what Julie does, except when I take deep breaths I pretend that I'm putting my entire body into a deep sleep by each breath. So what I would try to do is barely think, take a deep breath, and when I let go I feel like I'm gaining weight (i.e. sleep), and I keep on doing that till I'm relaxed and stuff.

     

    I also watch tv in bed most nights and that helps me fall asleep.

  4. James (canobiefan) passed along this article to me about this some hybrid mutant of an animal that has been causing some commotion in Maine, and just recently hit got hit and killed by a car.

     

    From: http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory?id=2322365&page=1

    TURNER, Maine Aug 16, 2006 (AP)— Residents are wondering if an animal found dead over the weekend may be the mysterious creature that has mauled dogs, frightened residents and been the subject of local legend for half a generation.

     

    The animal was found near power lines along Route 4 on Saturday, apparently struck by a car while chasing a cat. The carcass was photographed and inspected by several people who live in the area, but nobody is sure exactly what it is.

     

    Michelle O'Donnell of Turner spotted the animal near her yard about a week before it was killed. She called it a "hybrid mutant of something."

     

    "It was evil, evil looking. And it had a horrible stench I will never forget," she told the Sun Journal of Lewiston. "We locked eyes for a few seconds and then it took off. I've lived in Maine my whole life and I've never seen anything like it."

     

    For the past 15 years, residents across Androscoggin County have reported seeing and hearing a mysterious animal with chilling monstrous cries and eyes that glow in the night. The animal has been blamed for attacking and killing a Doberman pinscher and a Rottweiler the past couple of years.

     

    People from Litchfield, Sabattus, Greene, Turner, Lewiston and Auburn have come forward to speak of a mystery monster that roams the woods. Nobody knows for sure what it is, and theories have ranged from a hyena or dingo to a fisher or coydog, an offspring of a coyote and a wild dog.

     

    Now, people are asking if the mystery beast and the animal killed over the weekend are one and the same.

     

    Wildlife officials and animal control officers declined to go to Turner to examine the remains. By Tuesday, the carcass had been picked clean by vultures and there was not much left of the dead animal.

     

    Loren Coleman, a Portland author and cryptozoologist, said it's unlikely that the animal was anybody's pet.

     

    After reviewing photos of the carcass, Coleman said he was bothered by the animal's ears and snout. It reminded him of a case years ago in northern Maine in which an animal shot by a hunter could not be identified. In the end, wildlife officials got a DNA analysis that showed the animal was a rare wolf-dog hybrid, he said.

     

    Mike O'Donnell, who is married to Michelle O'Donnell, said the animal looked "half-rodent, half-dog" to him.

     

    It was charcoal gray, weighed between 40 and 50 pounds and had a bushy tail, a short snout, short ears and curled fangs hanging over its lips, he said. It looked like "something out of a Stephen King story."

     

    "This is something I've never seen before. It's an evil-looking thing," he said.

     

    And of course, a picture from foxnews.com

  5. Now my Ipod is broken again! My computer doesn't recognize it (it doesn't update)...I need to get my brother to fix it...I am really getting sick of getting my Ipod fixed every month.

     

    Is the ipod giving you a sad ipod face when you try to manually restart it? If so, drop it on a carpeted surface. That helps my Ipod get working again.
