i was thinking perhaps a car body place that does lots of after market upgrades since its a newish civic.
or is it possible to glue it back together and paint over it? it has about a four inch crack...
and I'm wondering how to keep my fruits and veggies fresh for as long as possible.
Would you suggest refrigerating all organic produce (fruits and veggies), or can the cold "kill" some of them faster?
Thanks in advance!

does anyone know of an online tax prep for STATE that only costs $7.95? i've heard of this but don't know where to go. i already did my federal for free.
my honda accord is making this horrible, tin-scraping-like noise coming from the right passenger wheel. when i put the brake on, the noise stops, but when i'm on the accelerator, it's yucky.
does anyone know of any honest honda mechanics OR an honest alignment/brake place in portland? i'm po', so i need to get the best deal possible.
I'll be there from March 23-28.
Tell me who you are and what was in the bag, we should be able to arrange for it to be returned. If I don't get a satisfactory claim within two days, I'll take it to the police.
Someone tell me why Gresham gets a bad rap? I've only been there a couple of times and while I can safely say it's not a place I'd want to live, I don't think it warrants bad mouthing. What's the deal?
With the coming Spring and a Kitty who needs to stay indoors, I need to get a screendoor bought and installed so we can have some air circulating in this joint.
Any suggestions where to look - who to ask? Cost?
I live in South East PDX.

"I think it's a good plan and I support it. But I cannot fully endorse it"
My argument: If you're saying you endorse something, like a law or policy or candidate or whatever, how can you not 'fully' endorse it? Endorsing something is like supporting something. You can't support something and not support it at the same time. It's totally contradictory. It just seems like one of those stupid things people say, like 'irregardless'. No matter how little sense it makes, you still hear it all the time!
His argument: if you disagree with parts of the policy/law/whatever it is, but you are endorsing it as a whole, this counts as 'not fully endorsing it'
I realize that for people with real lives this is a totally pathetic thing to be asking. But I really want to win this one or at least lose my way out in a clever way. Which I just can't do without your help because the man has heard everything I've got to say on it.
Thx dpers. Oh, and don't bother replying unless you support my argument. KIDDING!
It's black with red accents, large frame (I am 5'6" and keep the seat at a really low level), it has 3 reflectors and a light panel under the seat (needs batteries), awesome wheels, etc.
I hate to part with it but I really need money. If you're interested you can email me at email@example.com, or leave a comment- thanks!
then today, i get home from work and pour myself a glass of wine, sit down to relax and... I SEE ANOTHER MOUSE! again, my heartbeat jumped to 4000bpm and i had a total panic attack. i didnt catch him. he is loose! he ran under the wall and escaped. see, i live in a nice but very very old (i believe they call it "classic") apartment building in the pearl district and have never had a problem like this at all, nor have my neighbors. but anyway its an old building and the seal or whatever between the floor and the wall is not entirely connected, there is a slight gap there so im guessing these mice can enter anywhere in my apartment, as opposed to finding a little mouse hole or whatever and plugging it. what if there are 500 of them all around here, in the walls, in the cieling, under the floor? i think i might go stay in a hotel tonight.
why??????????????? what is going on? i always keep this place very clean, never leave food out, im 10000% baffled. how do i get rid of these things? how many of you have had problems with mice, and what did you do? ive looked online and seen everything from traps to poison pellets. i dont want to hurt them but if thats what it takes to get them out of here...
please, help ;(
1. Lake Oswego. Suburb, right? The guy says that it's about 15 minutes from downtown. How's the commuting time up there? Is there lots of traffic during the week, etc?
2. 2 Blocks from the Kennedy School, NE Portland between Ainsworth and killingsworth.
3. "near Mt Tabor, downtown, Hawthorne area"
Also, where the hell is 22nd and Taylor? I found 21st and Taylor, and KINGS Street and Taylor, but 22nd & Taylor? No dice, no dice.
I got something from SunRocket.com that looks very interesting and will save me about $100 a year if I pay a lump sum amount upfront. Basically you have to have broadband service already and it will use that.
You get :
* Unlimited calling – U.S. and Canada
* Free international minutes ($3 each month)
* Free extra phone number
* Over 10 enhanced calling features
* Two free Directory Assistance calls each month
* No charge to activate – includes free shipping
* No cancellation fees
* 31 day risk-free guarantee
You can roll over your existing number in about 20 days (before that you get a temporary number in the 503 area code).
You also get a $3 allowance on international calls each month. If you call France or Germany, that's 100 free international minutes. Or, if you call India, it's like 18 min.
Taxes are included in the lump sum price of $199 a year.
You also get a second phone number (something I plan to use whenever I have to give my number out to someone that isn't a friend or family member).
On top of that, call forward, caller id, call blocking, and voicemail.
You don't have to pay the lump sum, you can also pay monthly at $24.95.
Anyway, sounds too good to be true, so I am curious if anyone is currently using anything like this?
