Oct 17th 2011 3:46PM To keep this from happening, freezing your credit will keep anyone from applying for cars, houses, credit cards, and other major purchases. It might be a good thing to do for your kids and give them the passwords when they are old enough to start making major purchases.
By the way, child identity theft is not in any way new. I have known several people whose parents, step parents, or random strangers take advantage of their clean records.
Dec 20th 2010 7:31PM I am really nervous giving cash. I have a hard time telling which charity is actually giving the money to the right people. I only give food and items such as toiletries and clothes, never money.
Dec 1st 2010 1:33PM I will be moving into a new home in a couple of weeks and will need a washer and dryer set. I was looking to buy new, but the break down rate within a year for the best set on Consumer Reports was not satisfactory for me with the price I would be paying and for only one year manufacture warranty. I am settling with Craigslist for now. If it breaks after a year, no hard feelings.
Nov 30th 2010 4:59PM Champ, I agree. This seems to start off as a shallow relationship. I hope they have more to their relationship than lust for each others' looks, which can eventually fade. I hope it is not another mistake to eventually shame the crown and its position.
Nov 18th 2010 6:59PM I have to agree that she is an attention getter. I doubt she was fired for having too big breasts. She must have either dressed unprofessionally showing the girls off or some other way of deserving termination from the company. She is just mad and is making a heyday.
Oct 25th 2010 3:19PM Doesn't a house inspector look at the ratios for hazardous chemicals and gasses? I would have assumed he would have tested it if there was suspicion of a smell or date of house, right? If they did have an inspector look into it, and he did not find it, then they may want to ask him a couple of questions.
If they did not have it inspected, then I do not feel bad for them, especially if they did not do research on the history of the home before they made the final decision.
Home buyer beware of your purchase. Sorry, Mom is not here do your homework anymore.
Oct 21st 2010 4:36PM In high school I was a size 16. I worked out and ate right. I was very fit for my size. Put me in soccer or another competitive sport, I was never the last one picked. The guys always picked me first to help with their team whenever they could.
I jogged 24 miles on the tread at home every week on top of walking several miles around Seattle with friends over the weekend, working out at the school gym 6 hours a week after school activities, sword play with a bunch of UW guys twice a week, and the exercises required for track and field.
I was built like a brick house. Big chest, big hips, big butt, and tiny waist, and very proud of it. No matter how hard I worked out, gained a lot of muscle weight (about 45lbs) and stayed a size 16 (I was a size 16 45lbs before.) If you want to say that I was fat, you can, but with the amount of dense muscle versus fat on me, your accusation would be false. I was one of the most healthy, and still am, even if I am 5'3 and STILL a size 16 after 7 years after graduating HS. When I worked on the dry docks off lake Union, I was wanted by many to help them out with their tasks and had many fishing and other working vessels offer me jobs as part of their crew (and no, it was not because I was cute.)
A lot of physically strenuous activities done by a size 16 don't you think? I figure it is not the size of the body that counts, but what you do with it. Size does not always account for muscle tone, agility, capability, nor health.
By the way, my cholesterol and blood presser has always been normal. Apart from my "size," doctors could not find anything that would be threatening to my health that came with my size.
I was mainly curious about this article to see if they had my body type at all or not so I could actually see what an item would look like on me without going to the store. All I ever care about is the fit of the clothes I wear and not too much about the model. It turns out the dress is hideous either way.
Oct 19th 2010 3:32PM I dropped out of school in 2005 and made a few investments of time and money in a tugboat company that failed to produce anything for me. I am 26 now just gave up on the tug boat venture, and still work in pizza which I have been using to help with basic living and tug boat costs since the drop out. I am absolutely sick of working in such a low totem pol job and I will be returning to school in a couple of months to actually start courses that will give me a paycheck that I can actually let me do things outside of work (such as going out to eat, going to the movies, and having real hobbies.) I am used to living poor, but I would like it to change in a couple of years after obtaining a degree.
For those that made it without a degree and became successful entrepreneurs, you have something I do not and I look up to you.
Oct 18th 2010 6:21PM It sounds like a nice cheap way for a wedding, especially for 50-100 guests. I would do it if they had it in the US and if I could eat there without getting sick (darned celiac disease.)
Oct 18th 2010 5:11PM I agree most Mormons do not practice polygamy, I am not saying all do not, but who else practices it? Muslims and Americans calling their relationships poly amorous, which is very prevalent in today's "cultured" youth.
Polygamy was important when populations had a hard time keeping sustainability, but today in most of the world, we have no need of it anymore and with the extra leisure, our minds cannot be distracted from the little green monster in our hearts and minds.
