    Friend of mine went to baltimore to work for the summer, she came back with this particular 'swine' flu. Though, apparently, she was lucky in that doctors told her iy was a very mild version and could have been buckets worse. I hope whatever it is you had/have,sdp, turns out all right.

    Have you thought about having one alarm clck as far away from your bed as possible...forcing you to get up to turn it off? I wanted to get up early so I could go to school and get work done there before classes started and so had to get up super early for school. I had to get up to turn off the alarm clock positioned in a box far away from my bed so effort had to be put into getting it open, then jumped (okay, okay stumbled) into the shower. After a few weeks it becomes second nature to get up early. By the by, what piano piece? Just curious.

    Quote: So in all seriousness am I a plant or something using photosynthesis to gain energy causing me to not actually burn any calories at all o.OI wouldn't say you're getting food through photosynthesis considering plants have chloroplasts in which photsynthesis takes place and humans don't. Plants are autotrophic - make their own food, while humans are heterotrophic and have to take in food.Chloroplasts are also green. Just clearing up the plant question.

    Your overall score is just at average, so don't worry too much.

    For 2008, the averages were...Critical reading: 502Mathematics: 515Writing: 494 TOTAL: 1511 (I checked this with three sources and all of them gave the same figures)I don't know about the business major, but this site is pretty handy for colleges and points required. It has a section dealing with business schools, but not points required to major.

Attached to your braces, elastics exert the force that creates the right amount of pressure to move teeth in directions that the braces alone can't. It's important to wear your elastics as prescribed and change them every day so the force is constant which the teeth like. A lack of consistency in wearing rubber bands can bring treatment to a standstill. Teeth never fail to move when elastics are worn consistently as directed.''

    Taking into account that the kids are going to be super-excited when they see the helicopter, have you considered giving them a one minute pep talk before they see the helicopter about all the amazing careers they could have as a helicopter-fliers (police, firefighting, emergency medical care, spies...).Or have them turn with their backs to the helicopter while you talk for a few seconds to get them interested.As for how to correspond...Police: You could show them the walkie-talkie in the cockpit and say thats how they talk to their chief.Firefighting: You could show them the navigation system on the instrument panel and say that firefighters use this to get to the location of the fire (you could also say they follow the smoke, but you wouldn't be incorporating helicopter parts).Emergency Medical Care: You could show them the upper and lower cutters (pointy sticky-out things that resemble knives, one on top of the aircraft, the other under the cockpit), and say that when the nurses and doctors are flying to their destination, they may fly into some wires (by accident) and these wires would be caught by these cutters which would effectively cut them to prevent the rotor getting tangled up (part of the Wire Strike Protection System - WASP ). However, these are not always present.Spies: Here you could talk about the rotor and how if the engine fails (with the spies on board) the helicopter will still fly (it will glide - autorotation) which means it can be landed, though probably with some diifculty, safely. They may ''oooh'' and ''aaah'' at this. Good luck!

    *Read, read and read!If you don't have any books at home or you don't want to go to the library or your town does not have a library, you can always go to www.bibliomania.com. It has a large selection of classics.*Draw, draw and draw!Just go outside with a piece of paper and a pen. Or you can draw your shoe. Or somebody you know. Or just a pretty picture to brighten up your wall.*Get in shape properly!Go out and run. Like Forrest did, but not that far.These are some things I would love to do if I had the time.
