• On average what does it cost to rent an economy car long term..say two months?

    Just looking for a ball park as I know there are a lot of variables. I'm considering taking an eight week contract job across country...MI to Vegas. It's such a long drive, I'm considering flying in and renting. The company gives me 2K a month per diem, so how I spend it is up to me.

I KNOW his shower is running, I've been here long enough to know. So, why would someone do this? Is this part of making illicit drugs?

    I rescued a cat in January. After a month or so I noticed tapeworms, I brought the segments in and the vet verified it and treated him. He was treated by the rescue organization also. He was clear for a couple months, now I am finding segments again. He has never been outside since I've owned him and there has never been fleas on him or in my home either. Nor are there any rodents in my home that could be carrying them. The only thing I can think of is that the parasites have built up a resistance to the treatment over the course of time. Is this possible? Is there any possible way to rid him completely and permanently?

    I saw this bug, at night. I've never seen anything like it before. I have looked everywhere and can't identify it. I live in MI. It was about 4 inches long. It's body was perfectly straight and smooth and had no curvature to it at all and no tapering or notches/segments to it, not even at the end other that a slight radius at the end of the wings, which were tight to the body. It was about 3/8 of an inch wide. It was brown and I could see a bit under the wings when I touched it and it was bright green. Its head was separate like a praying mantis which it wasn't. The head was oval horizontally and was a bit narrower than the body and about an 1/8 of inch deep. The eyes were bulbous. It had about 2 inch long legs that were about as thick as thin spaghetti and they were bent at about 1 inch. I spotted it on a sidewalk under a streetlight and I live near ponds. Please help this will drive me insane if I can't figure it out!

    This is a serious question and if you are not a practicing and experienced pagan please don't contribute. I have been dedicated for over a year now. A certain dark goddess has made it very clear that I am to worship her. She is getting impatient and a bit nasty, and has inflicted minor but nuisance pain upon me when I try to reject her. My priestess has confirmed with me whom it is and is warning me of the dangers of this goddess. The goddess appeared before her and got a bit angry that she was trying to scare me etc. I don't know what to do. I'm not interested in a dark goddess. Do I have a choice? I am beginning to think not and maybe this goddess has something to teach me that I am not aware of.

    I am getting sewer gas up through my shower drain and only that drain. It is definitely sewer gas and not bacteria from a clog etc.; I know the difference. It drains perfectly also. I suspect that the trap is drying out because it goes away temporarily if I run some water in there. This is a shower that is used regularly, so it is not evaporating from lack of use. The smell comes up even when no water is running elsewhere in the house. The toilet flushes fine in that room and all the sinks throughout the house drain well, but the toilet in the bathroom on the other end of the the house has a huge bloop sound and air bubble when it is flushed. I mention the bloop because I read something vague about that, but it wasn't really clear. This is a 7yr old condo and I live on the upper floor. This is a new problem so it cant be from poor plumbing design. I'm mentioning all the above so it isn't suggested because I've read that stuff in my research before consulting here. Could it be the roof vent, and if so, why now and not before? I'm praying that you suggest that is the problem, because then it falls on the association to fix and not me. The accessible neighbors in this building are rotten to me, so I can't ask them if they are experiencing the same problem.

I can't move to the body of the email either. Just a static cursor. If I must, I'll switch to the old version if anyone can direct me how to do that. I am receiving mail.

It is an old recipe from Jeff Smith aka the Frugal Gourmet if anyone remembers that old PBS cooking show. Getting a little nostalgic sorry. Anyways, it is chicken breasts stuffed with spinach and feta cheese. You pound the chicken then roll them up with the goodies and then coat them with bread crumbs and bake. In the meantime, and this is what makes it yummy, is you make a mushroom wine sauce with sliced mushrooms and a chicken stock base. The sauce goes over the chicken voile! I've yet to find an appropriate companion to serve with it. I've tried rice pilaf, but the seasonings don't compliment the wine sauce. Of course I always serve a steamed veggie, but it seems like I need a starch too. I always serve three courses, so I need something else besides the veggies. Any ideas from you chefs out there? What would you serve? I can find the recipe if you have a suggestion.

She can get kind of protective with them and growls if my other JRT just walks by them, even though the other one has no interest; she only likes tuggies and balls. They are both females. Anyways, got a little off track. With some of her favorite plush toys, usually bigger ones, she will lay on the couch with them and lick them to death like she is cleaning them. It looks like affection almost. Why does she do this? Can dogs really get that attached to a toy? It's not beneath her to destroy one though when I'm gone out of separation anxiety...I think she knows I'll stitch the favs back up. She snoops in my sewing room for them...lol. Sometimes she'll dash out of there with one when she thinks I'm not looking before I can repair it.

    My washing machine is making a loud banging noise when it agitates like it's hitting something inside. I washed a heavy chenille rug in the washing machine and I had to stop the spin cycle because it was severely out of balance. I was quick, but apparently not quick enough to prevent damage because when I started the next load, it started making a loud banging noise with each agitation back and forth. It kinda sounds like something is loose or broken inside, which prevents the agitation in each direction from stopping on time and it's hitting something. It spins fine though. Please don't say "Call a repairman." because that's obvious and useless advice. I'm unemployed and not even getting by. I'm pretty handy and want to attempt to fix it myself first if possible. Anyone care to give a diagnostic, and if possible, let me know if it's a do-it-yourself job for a fairly mechanically inclined woman? If I know what it is, I'm sure I can look up the fix it online. Thanks
