    I don’t know why you posted the link about AAA, but have you ever considered Considering AAA’s reputation for lobbying against the Clean Air Act and other indiscretions, I find it to be a better alternative. We made the switch and love it.

    I use AAA for triptik’s. Haven’t used the discounts yet. Got it in case we take a road trip this year and we will be. Yay!

    Miss-E – I have never heard of the Better World Club, thanks for letting me know about them. I’m fascinated by the Bicycle Roadside Assistance.

    WHen I have spaghetti strap shirts that I need to hang. I take dry cleaner pants hangers (the ones with the card board tube) and pull the tube off and then bend the wire arms up to make a W. These are the only wire hangers I use.

    Megan, thanks for saving me from hours of boredom with this list. Also, the cystic acne article reminded me that I might as well wash my face.
