I did some googling and it seems like $100 per person would be appropriate.
But, since it's my best friends sister I'll give a little more. I like the idea of 88.
So I'll probably do $188.

Thanks.

Tragically, a 26-year-old woman that had been sitting in the front passenger seat was pronounced dead at the scene.

The name of the deceased is not being released as the family has not yet been notified.

The 26-year-old driver of the car was taken to hospital with minor injuries and is cooperating with police. Police believe that speed was a factor in the crash.

Anyone that witnessed the collision and has not spoken with police is asked to call the VPD Collision Investigation Unit at (604) 717-3012.


same spot on april 2012 . coincidentally also an audi (different model)

Holy Crap! How Did Anyone Survive This Explosive Audi Crash?

You know by today's standards none of us was supposed to ever make it.

HIGH SCHOOL -- 1958 vs. 2012

Scenario 1:

Jack goes duck hunting before school and then pulls into the school parking lot with his shotgun in his truck's gun rack.

1958 - Vice Principal comes over, looks at Jack's shotgun, goes to his car and gets his shotgun to show Jack.

2012 - School goes into lock down, FBI called, Jack hauled off to jail and never sees his truck or gun again. Counselors called in for traumatized students and teachers.

Scenario 2:

Johnny and Mark get into a fist fight after school.

1958 - Crowd gathers. Mark wins. Johnny and Mark shake hands and end up buddies.

2012 - Police called and SWAT team arrives -- they arrest both Johnny and Mark. They are both charged with assault and both expelled even though Johnny started it.

Scenario 3:

Jeffrey will not be still in class, he disrupts other students.

1958 - Jeffrey sent to the Principal's office and given a good paddling by the Principal. He then returns to class, sits still and does not disrupt class again.

2012 - Jeffrey is given huge doses of Ritalin. He becomes a zombie. He is then tested for ADD. The family gets extra money (SSI) from the government because Jeffrey has a disability.

Scenario 4:

Billy breaks a window in his neighbor's car and his Dad gives him a whipping with his belt.

1958 - Billy is more careful next time, grows up normal, goes to college and becomes a successful businessman.

2012- Billy's dad is arrested for child abuse; Billy is removed to foster care and joins a gang. The state psychologist is told by Billy's sister that she remembers being abused herself and their dad goes to prison. Billy's mom has an affair with the psychologist.

Scenario 5:

Mark gets a headache and takes some aspirin to school.

1958 - Mark shares his aspirin with the Principal out on the smoking dock .

2012- The police are called and Mark is expelled from school for drug violations. His car is then searched for drugs and weapons.

Scenario 6:

Pedro fails high school English.

1958 - Pedro goes to summer school, passes English and goes to college.

2012 - Pedro's cause is taken up by state. Newspaper articles appear nationally explaining that teaching English as a requirement for graduation is racist. ACLU files class action lawsuit against the state school system and Pedro's English teacher. English is then banned from core curriculum. Pedro is given his diploma anyway but ends up mowing lawns for a living because he cannot speak English.

Scenario 7:

Johnny takes apart leftover firecrackers from the Fourth of July, puts them in a model airplane paint bottle and blows up a red ant bed.

1958 - Ants die.

2012 - ATF, Homeland Security and the FBI are all called. Johnny is charged with domestic terrorism. The FBI investigates his parents - and all siblings are removed from their home and all computers are confiscated. Johnny's dad is placed on a terror watch list and is never allowed to fly again.

Scenario 8:

Johnny falls while running during recess and scrapes his knee. He is found crying by his teacher, Mary. Mary hugs him to comfort him.

1958 - In a short time, Johnny feels better and goes on playing.

2012 - Mary is accused of being a sexual predator and loses her job. She faces 3 years in State Prison. Johnny undergoes 5 years of therapy.

And they say it's only certain types of parents who are psychotic and controlling...

21-year-old Ohio honor student wins stalking order against helicopter parents who monitored her Internet use and phone calls$ - NY Daily News
Quote:
21-year-old Ohio honor student wins stalking order against helicopter parents who monitored her Internet use and phone calls
Aubrey Ireland’s parents wanted to keep their daughter close – so close that they installed tracking software on the 21-year-old’s phone and computer so that they could monitor every site she visited and every person she talked to.

It was “like I was a dog with a collar on,” said Ireland, a music theater student at the University of Cincinnati.

After three years, the college senior had enough. A judge granted her a stalking order against her parents, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. David and Julie Ireland have to stay 500 feet away from their daughter at all times and can’t get back in touch with her for a year.

At first, her parents were supportive. Even though Aubrey was offered full scholarships to other acting schools, they agreed to pay for tuition at their daughter’s school of choice.

Aubrey has been on the dean’s list throughout her time as a student at Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music. She often won leading roles in the school’s musicals.

But despite her success, the Irelands’ behavior became more erratic. The helicopter parents would often show up at their daughter’s college unannounced, even though it was a 600 mile drive from their hometown in Leawood, Kan. David and Julie Ireland told the musical theater department head that their daughter had mental issues and needed to be treated. They accused her of being promiscuous and taking illegal drugs.

“It’s just been really embarrassing and upsetting to have my parents come to my university when I’m a grown adult and just basically slander my name and follow me around,” Aubrey said during a court hearing.

Although Aubrey said their accusations were false, the parents had another card up their sleeves. They admitted that they were electronically tracking their daughter’s Internet use and monitoring her phone calls.

Last year, the student told police that her mother had assaulted her after showing up at her apartment in Cincinnati, according to the Daily Mail. Her mother countered that accusation with one of her own – she said that her daughter was the one who had assaulted her.

Aubrey eventually cut off all contact with her parents. But that didn’t keep them away. The school hired security guards to keep the Irelands out of their daughter’s shows. When they stopped paying her tuition, the school offered to pay for her senior year of college.

When her parents told the University of Cincinnati that they were going to take her away for mental evaluations, Aubrey decided to take action.

On Sept. 24, she filed a civil stalking order against her parents. At a Dec. 10 court hearing, Julie demanded that her daughter pay back the $66,000 her parents had spent on her three years of college. When mediators suggested that the parents, not the daughter, were the problem, the Irelands said that Aubrey was “a good actor and lying.”

“She's an only child who was catered to all her life by loving parents,”' Julie said in court. “We’re not bothering her. We're not a problem.”

Judge Jody Luebbers ruled that, as an adult, Aubrey is allowed to live her life according to her own wishes. The stalking order remains in effect until at least next Sept. 23.

start tanning now and go 3 times a week and you will be fine. I never used lotion so it took a bit longer but saved me from being burnt on vacation. go bare balls and start little time and move it up slowly.

^^ Agreed.

I got a spray tan last year, and that doesn't really help at all.

Your abit late to start getting a base tan from UV beds, but like murd0c said. Go now and start 3x/week. Also talk to the people working there and see what they think.

IMO dry swiffers work great on our hardwood floors for dust and misc particles. then the wet swiffer. if you don't try to pick up dust bunnies etc with a dry first and go straight to a wet, you'll get dirt rolls and they might not get picked up well.

FYI you can get cheap dry wipes at daiso for $2 a pack WAAAAAAY cheaper then swiffer's dry pack

if you track must in to the house you might be using some elbow grease to wet swiffer the dirt out.

I use this for the hardwood floors.......... or should I say, the wife. OK, I help clean the house once in a while (trying to be a modern Asian dude).

Bona Hardwood Floor Mop Brooms/Dusters Bed Bath & Beyond Video


EDIT: Actually, this link is better. Has video in it to show you how it works. I recall wifey telling me this is the only thing with a liquid cleaner that is safe on hardwood and laminate floors.

http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/prod...?SKU=18424673&

Use 20% off flyer coupon you find in the local papers or any competitor's coupon (Home Outfitters). In fact, I think Home Outfitters carry the Bona for the same price, too.
