Almost 4oo oo Hits!</U>

Thanks for visiting, and thanks for your support for over a year!

It is cold , but overall the month has been above normal. It is hard to believe a week or so ago it was 16°c and now it is -7°c. So far the lowest we have gone this year is -15°c at the airport, but on my terrace since it is downtown and surrounded by buildings and only -11°c.

If you're in CHicago, it went down to -20°c / -5°F ! thats not including the windchill. Even some people in Florida weren't spared this latest blast of cold air courtesy of the Canadian Arctic (You're welcome). Atlanta got snow twice in one week.

Only another month and a half, and then winter starts dissappearing.

ANother intersting point I foudn out if this micro chip they want to insert into peoples bodies, so that doctors or whoever can see what you medical info is. Sounds a little too intimate for me, with GPS they can track you wherever you go.

200 people already have it installed in the states, its the similar thing they do with dogs so that they can be recovered if they go missing.

I don't know about you, but I would defenitely not get it. Soon, they will try to get rid of cash and get you to use the card for everything. It is really odd to see people pay cash for big things, it almost looks suspicious !  I bough a replacement PS2 sicne i burnt my other one out, and i paid with cash. It was a really different feeling, like it actually felt like i was paying, not 'swipe' 'beep beep beebeep' and now it is mine.

I'm old fashioned i guess!

Asalaamalaikum = Peace be upon you!

I'm really old fashioned too... I hate the idea of carrying pieces of computers inside... And money is becoming an abstract thing, that's something that surprises me...
Anyway, I like your post x)

hey man, how are you doing? feeling better these days? i feel the same way. cash is always better in my mind. if you say you only want to spend 200 and you have that in cash, then your forced to only spend that. with the card, you swipe, but you have to remember the amounts from all transactions, and then you say, well i'm only going over what i want just a bit. well, that little bit soon adds up fast.
oh, i saw your bit on the space channel about robotech, very cool. i thought jim was much more sober looking then he usually is. lol.

the microchip is used mainly in altimers patients who have no idea where they are or how they got there, to make sure they don't run off and die of exposure. of course if someone was to put it in there kid......scary to think about

There is not way I would get that thing put in me. The doctors and their ilk can do their jobs and look it up them selves damn it! For all people would know, they went ahead and put a gps locater in it so they can monitor you. Of coerce, perhaps I am being paranoyed. Maybe people are really just too lazy to look information up on the computer.

If you pay in cash then you will end up spending far less. I think it is a better way to go.

A lot of stuff we saw in movies as kids are starting to actually happen. Clones, chips, newer technology...etc. Pretty soon they will be able to make telepods so we can make it from point A to point B in seconds.

microchip in a body? They should do that to ex-crime doers, not us innocent beings:XD:. You don't use cc? thats actually a brilliant idea, paying things with cash makes one feel more budget-conscious...:P
You burnt ur old PS2? how did that happen?? O__o
