Cars not safe parked anywhere - Kathy Jefcoats

I love my car, a 1997 Monte Carlo. I bought it new May 19, 1997. It was not my first new car but it was the first to be mine, all mine. The first was a 1992 Ford Aerostar minivan. It was the vehicle that our kids learned to drive in and I shared it with them as they got their licenses. When I got my Monte Carlo, we sold the van to our daughter, Beth, but got it back when she married.

Cheating on poll corrupts system - Tamara Boatwright

When we launched the poll on our Web sites ( and we thought this would be a good way for our readers to interact with us. We also thought it would be a decent, but certainly not scientific, snapshot of who was reading us and viewing our Web site.
