One of my dearest friends lives in Phoenix Arizona, and she is like me where she never complains about how hot it is!! We always got along well, because we seemed to always be cold.
Anyway, she called me a few weeks ago to say that her car had just died and she didn't know how on earth she would be able to get another one. She would have to be looking for Used Cars, and pretty quickly, too! You see, her ex-husband had ruined her credit pretty badly during their marriage, and after the marriage ended, she found out that all the cards they held jointly, put her in a credit shambles. She seemed so distraught, not over her marriage being over, but because her credit rating now stunk, and with her needing a new vehicle to get to work, she didn't know what she would do?
She called last week to say that she is sure she is getting a car now, thanks to a great company called Drive Time. This is a company located in Phoenix (and around Arizona) that offers their own financing and is geared towards people with less than wonderful credit.
She said this was like a godsend for her, when she found them, they offer competitive rates and she took the instant online approval thing on their website, and as long as she has a job that they can verify, she will qualify!! How great does that sound?? I am so happy for her!! She really needs this car, and it is nice to know that there are some dealers out there who will help someone out, even if their credit rating isn't good. This was not her fault, so to be penalized by every lender who thinks she is a credit risk, is just not fair. Thank goodness she found DriveTime, and it seems like it was just in the nick of time too!!

There are a lot of people out there that think they may not have money to buy Christmas presents, or to even have a Christmas dinner, but there are some easy ways to make some money for this holiday season.
Have you thought about payday loans? They are a quick solution to get some extra cash when you need it. It is like an advance on your next paycheck, and sometimes you can pay off the loan in installments, which makes it easier on your wallet, especially around the holidays. We all could use a boost on certain weeks, and this just might be your answer.
Another way to make some quick money for the holidays is to sell some of your unwanted stuff. There are places online where you can sell just about anything, and if it is just laying around, gathering dust, why not let someone else utilize it? And in the process, you will bring in some cash for your things that you can spend on presents that will be put to good use.
You can have a garage or a yard sale, again, selling off your things that are no longer needed. Although, this isn't exactly yard sale season, there are some collectors out there who search for the unusual garage or yard sale at this time of the year. Maybe some of your neighbors would join you and you could have a neighborhood sale?
Then there is the part time jobs that are available only for the holiday season. You will only be hired prior to the holiday, but that just might be enough to raise some of that dough you are needing. Some companies that can be found in the classified ads ask for people to demonstrate their goods in a store, you have probably seen them in the supermarket or Walmart? These companies hire you to give out samples and/or coupons for their products, and in return, you will get paid to do this. It is usually not a steady job, but again, it just might be enough to get you what you need.
And lastly, there is blogging for money. There are a lot of bloggers out there that post articles on their blogs to help endorse a company, or companies, and in return, you will get paid for writing that article and helping to drive traffic to the company website. Most companies pay within 30 days, so if you are thinking of this option, you need to get cracking to raise that money before Christmas comes!!
I hope this has given you some ideas on how you can maybe raise some money for the holidays this year.

Oh my gosh! Now my washing machine has gone on the fritz. This has not been a good year for me, let me tell you. First it was the broken heater, then the computer that had to be replaced, lots of small things in between and now it is the washing machine!
Now I have to go look at washing machines this weekend to try to replace this broken one. I am going to do a lot of comparison shopping, but something tells me that I might find the best deal at Sam's Club, as usual. They have some gorgeous front load washers, and they are reasonably priced. I know because I have looked at them before when I was just dreaming about a new washer and didn't actually need one. A sort of window shopping, put it on the wish list kind of thing. But now, I really need to get one. I love the one I posted a picture of above, mostly because it is my favorite color of red, and also because it is a front loader, and I have never had that before. I still have the old fashioned lid that opens on the top thing. This one looks so much more stylish, don't you think?
I also have to consider space when I am getting my new washer and might have to go with one of those compact washing machines. I don't have a big house, and have thought about getting an apartment sized set to try to save space. I will have to look around, like I said, and weigh all the options first.

Who goes surfing on Cape Cod in November?
It was about 40 degrees here today, definitely not warm enough for surfing!!
I wondered who they were, and where they were coming from, to have surfboards on their truck??
The didn't have an out of state license plate, because then maybe that might have explained some of it.....
Who goes surfing around here in November???

This is a snippet from the magazine photo shoot that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart did for Harper's Bazaar.
Damn! They are HOT!
I have added a video of the photo shoot for you to see, and please feel free to drool if you want to......I did....LOL
This was done to promote the movie "New Moon" and it's upcoming release on November 20th. I am so excited and can hardly wait. Although they aren't dressed in their typical movie attire, I kind of like this glam look that they have going on. Especially Kristen, she rocks the glam look!
But personally, I will always be focused on Rob.....I can't help it, and these photos don't make it any easier!!
Please enjoy the clips below......
