    Great reminder!! Is there a law already in place for not putting on your makeup while you drive? I'm so guilty of that. hehehe. Shame on me

    I too hate how gas is gouging my bank account right now. It's awful!! My little Honda used to fill up on about $18 of gas, the other day it took $41 and I was unhappy. And to think, gas prices always go up come summertime because of travel, goodness, I'm ready to convert my car into one of the vegetable oil running vehicles.

      I do too! We've discussed this before, but we both work across (the 405) the way! How funny! I work so close, but still, I got used to filling up w/ $40 tops, now its like $70! My bro lives in Northridge and I hate that fact that I hesitate driving out there to visit my neice and nephew.

      i completely agree. wa state is converting to all-HDTV in feb '09. if you are a cable suscriber they will give you a converter, but if not you can only get a $40 coupon to use. any non-HDTV will NOT WORK without the converter after this day. Bunch o' crap if you ask me
      I have a feeling more states will follow. Oregon has been discussing this one for awhile now.
      WA state:
      Cell Phones
      As of January 1st, 2008, it is illegal to text message while driving.
      Beginning July 1st, 2008, it will be illegal to drive while chatting on a hand-held cell phone. Handsfree OK, but no discounts, coupons, or freebies from any cellular provider are availble.
      If caught you will be slugged with a $101 fine.

        Interesting, I wonder how many states have similar laws. Out here they are also doing the cable switch...not cool.
