nice articles.

1. Yeah it happens, poor gal. But honestly, she should of known better then to wear that to the airport.

2. Speed dial, it's logical the fella had his dearest family on speed dial. With the crash, the phone could of been open and pressured with just a few buttons, constantly dialing any of three or four keys randomly.

3. I can understand them wanting to create their own versions... but it's incredibly silly because it will likely remain public knowledge as to why these new holidays were formed and modeled after western influences to begin with. In other words a needless complication.

that air water thing sounds a bit concerning to me...

the water in air has a purpose, it plays some role in hte ecosystem and taking it out of the air in such a way could have unseen ramifications.

Flaming squirrel blamed for small Calif. wildfire

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?.../n100513D39.DTL

One very unlucky furry animal

With southern California fighting wind-driven flames and spot fires breaking out across northern California, firefighters have fingered at least one arsonist: an unlucky squirrel.

Redding firefighters say the squirrel set off the blaze when it shorted out a power line, caught fire and dropped into dry vegetation.

Battalion Chief Gerry Gray says it took 18 firefighters and six fire engines to fight the fire that started behind a Redding restaurant.

The fire briefly threatened a home before it was contained Monday.

Redding Electric Utility spokesman Pat Keener says about 200 customers might have noticed their electricity flicker when the squirrel shorted out the high-voltage power line. But the incident did not cause a power outage.

That usually comes after you move in, the images are just of the architecture which is vitually always spartan as it is meant to highlight the house and not the interior decoration.

I think it looks really cool and the illusion on that one side that looked like it had one side lower was a nice touch. The interior gives plenty of natural lighting and like any house can be decorated to the content of the owners tastes and desires.

Anyway...

great articles. I love the Muppet driver. Reminds me of the X-Wing novels when one of the characters strapped an Ewok doll to his own body to make imperialists think that his fighter craft was piloted by an Ewok. lol

vista always seemed like a waste of time to me.

all my programs run on XP and I never saw any reason to upgrade simply to get some snazzy see through windows.
