To dry a soaked phone, use rice. If your iPhone lands in the toilet or you get it wet, this can help to save your device. Put your device into a bag with rice to help soak up the moisture. This should dry out the phone, usually after a few hours or by waiting until the following morning.

Use the button on your headphone cord to snap a picture with your iPhone. To begin, frame the picture that you are going to take. When you are ready to take the shot, just press down on the cord's button. The picture will be taken this way. Save the picture as you normally would.

Increase the speed of messaging by using this trick. If the suggestion provided for a word by your iPhone isn't what you want to use, you can get rid of it by tapping any part of the phone's screen. You do not even have to tap the small "x" that is found at the word's end.

Looking For Auto Insurance-Then We Can Help

There are lots of unchangeable factors dictating your auto insurance costs, but there are factors in your control. Choosing a high deductible over a low one can mean paying less money if you're lucky enough to not make a claim. The information below will give you the answers to lowing your cost on auto insurance.

Keep your driving record as clean as possible. When accidents and tickets are on your driving record, your insurance costs can go through the roof. Traffic classes are a good way to remove points from your license, which can help lower your premiums.

You should always check the possible insurance rates if you are purchasing a new vehicle. Insurance company agents can give you a list of cars which have the most economical rates. If you're in the market for a new or previously owned vehicle, insurance rate info could be a big factor in your choice. You'll save a good amount of money if you buy an automobile that carries an excellent safety rating.

You should talk to your insurance agent when you buy costly accessories for your car to ensure that the policy is adequately covering the total value of the vehicle. Even though purchasing rims can put you $1,000 in the hole, they will only increase your vehicle's value by $30. This investment will be lost if your vehicle is stolen.

Lapses in your coverage can make it difficult to keep your rates low. Switching between many different policies and insurance companies can cause gaps in coverage, even if unintentional. If your insurance company notices that there have been periods when you weren't covered, you could be in for a costly rate increase.

You should limit how many household members you have on your insurance policy. By having only one driver for each car, you will get a better premium for your insurance policy.

Maintaining a good driving record is key to getting the best insurance premiums possible. Car accidents are the number one thing to raise your insurance rates. You should accept any limitations you might have and avoid any situations that might lead to an accident. If you have poor night-vision, then avoid driving at night.

Increase your deductibles and save money as a result. This is a risky move, but if you want to save money each month and have the willpower to put money away to pay a deductible if you are in an accident, it is a great way to save money Your premium will cost less if your deductible is higher.

Don't jump right away on the cheapest auto insurance quote you receive. The cheapest plan may turn out to be the best one, but not always. Make sure you find out about the insurance company and your policy because you want the best helping you out if you need to file a claim.

As you read earlier, there's a lot you can do to reduce the price you pay for auto insurance. Your location, driving record and number of miles that you put on your car each year are items that you have some control over. Being aware of these factors can help you reduce the cost of your auto insurance to a more reasonable level.

Morning Radio

Local Favorites

I can probably speak for many when I say the Preston and Steve radio show is a local favorite. But, I would contend that they are probably one of the best morning shows in the country. How many radio shows do you know that have their own brand of ice cream, not many, if any. That's right, Preston and Steve have an incredibly delicious ice cream flavor dubbed "Gadzooks", check it out.

Not only is Preston Elliot and Steve Morrisson running a great radio show, they have the uncanny ability to take a simple phrase like "monkey pick a$$" (spoken with an English accent), and make it wildly funny to hear and acceptable to repeat.

The Preston and Steve show is aired locally on 93.3 WMMR, and can be hear around the world by steaming audio via http://www.wmmr.com/, and Podcast. So if you are up to hear something funny on the radio, and are tired of Howard Stern claiming he invented everything, give the Preston and Steve show a shot. From "monkey pick a$$" to "Gadzooks" you wont be disappointed, and if you are lucky may hear some old street fighter sound clips.

Hope you enjoy their show.




Flat Tire Fix It

Flat tires are one of the most common troubles that car owners and vehicle drivers encounter. This happens mostly when the owner or the driver do not give much attention to the car’s tires. Keeping your cool when your car’s tire runs flat would help you out a lot. After all, the situation could be remedied in no time at all.

First off, you should turn your car’s flashers on as you slowly pull of the road. Make sure that you park your car in an area which is away from any traffic. But it is also important that you are visible from the road and not secluded. If possible, try to find an area that is flat and level. Parking on inclines could make changing your flat tire quite a challenge. When you have already found your spot and have safely parked your car, make sure that you do inform other motorists that you are in some kind of car trouble. Put up your flares.

Your car could actually roll while you are trying to fix the flat tire so it is important that you put on the hand brake of your vehicle. Also, put the transmission of your vehicle in park or in gear. And when you have done so, start collecting the items you would need to change the tire – the spare tire, a leverage pipe, the jack, and a lug nut wrench. And before you start tinkering with the flat tire, place a large rock or a huge piece of wood beneath all the other wheels so that your car would certainly not roll.

Loosen the lug nuts on your flat tire using the lug nut wrench. This should be done by turning the tool counterclockwise. Loosen them but do not completely remove them. And when all are loose, then is the time to jack your car up. Make sure that the car is elevated slightly greater so that the new and full tire could fit in when you put it in. Then remove the loosened lug nuts. You can now remove the flat tire and put the new spare on. Tighten the lug nuts and make sure that everything is tight. You can put down the jack and certainly be on your way.

A Deep Look into Soap Operas

You have got to love soap operas. From the intricate plots and finely woven webs of deceit, to the depths of schemes, they were, are and always will be classics. They are timeless. I wrote this article as my take on them back in 1970 when filling white space for our high school paper. Watch a few soap operas for the next few days and see for yourself how closely they resemble soap operas 36 years ago…

And now for that thought provoking question that plagues men’s souls unceasingly through the bright shining of the day and through the untold dark depths of the night:

Why did Peter, who in reality is actually Superman, fake that he stubbed his toe on the 17th stone on the sidewalk starting at 4th and Grand instead of the 16th stone, which was bigger and more logically the victim of that invulnerable toe and why did Marlys take Sam’s advice to buy the yellow tulip instead of the red and green carnation, while all the time Rodregus knew that the curvaceous young Pandora was at the moment buying the last purple, double-breasted, duck-billed, warbling giraffe in the world for her dear departed Phillip disguised as a lowly second mate on the Queen Mary, which was under attack by the tyrant Cedric because of the terrible beating he had suffered at the hands of Radcliff whose ex-wife Natalie was actually Percival’s long lost great-great-uncle Maximillian in disguise who knew that Zigmond was fond of un-pitted olives stuffed into green grapefruit filled graciously with Granny and Gretchen’s goulash, which was gradually getting gooey and who also knew of Jennifer’s contact Louella in the deep Congo, seized at the time by the dread Gardenia, the 7th cousin of Guenivere, in hopes of receiving the eight-ounce bottle of Elmer’s Glue stored in the vast files in the cortex of Courtney’s colossal computer complex carefully compiled to correct the current curling, commonly crusading as the contagious, communicable, crystalline, cucumber crud, carried on cue sticks by crying cuckoo clock birds continuously to conform with the cunning Cornelius’ cumbersome plot to corrupt the currency and continue the crisis of the Cormandel Coast Cult, complicated by the coroner Cort’s corny connotation to conceal his consecutive coronary contractions constantly crippling his conscious efforts to contradict congenial counterparts’ careful counterfeit correspondence with Corwyn, the cosmic cosmetician?

Was it because Bill had green eyes or was it because Melissa meddled menacingly and meticulously in Maude’s plans to read the calendar to see what year she had been sent to by her superiors in the future?

Tune in tomorrow for the exciting climax created by another deep question.


Chevy Classics!

Chevrolet used to have an advertising campaign that touted, “Baseball, apple pie, and Chevrolet.” Supposedly, General Motor’s largest division attempted to indoctrinate consumers into believing that a Chevrolet was as mainstream as Main Street, USA. In many ways this campaign worked. For generations now the Chevrolet division has been serving up cars that have been snapped up by Americans, particularly those seeking their first car. Let’s take a look at three Chevy classics that have shaped the respected US automaker.

the Chevy Corvette was released and the auto market hasn’t been the same since. This two seat ragtop paved the way for greater and lesser cars to enter the US market including Chevy’s own Camaro and Chevelle; Pontiac’s Firebird and GTO; Ford’s Thunderbird and Mustang; the Dodge Charger; Plymouth ‘Cuda; AMC Javelin; Datsun 240Z; and a host of other cars. For over 50 years, the limited production Corvette has been the “halo” car for Chevrolet and is now a favorite of the baby boomer set.

One of the original “pony cars” was the Camaro which, along with the similarly designed Pontiac Firebird, was GM’s answer in 1967 to the Ford Mustang. After the 1964½  introduction of the Mustang, GM needed a response…and badly! Pony cars were famous for compact size, speed, and 2+2 seating. Add in a convertible and you had a true California cruiser. After 35 years of production, Chevy  discontinued the Camaro while the Mustang is still being made. Good news for Camaro fans: A new Camaro is reportedly set to debut for the 2009 model year.

 Is it a car or is it a truck? How about: car/truck? Half car and half truck, the El Camino is essentially a car with the rear section converted into a truck bed. Introduced in 1959, the original El Camino was based on the Impala platform, then on the Chevelle, and later on the Malibu chassis. The El Camino was Chevy’s response to the 1957 introduction of the Ford Ranchero, the first production car/truck. Although not meant for heavy duty truck use the El Camino, when equipped with adjustable shock absorbers, was able to carry its share of weight in its bed.

Other cars from Chevy that have been memorable include: the Venture, Nova, Caprice, and Chevelle; while some truly forgettable models include the Chevette, Monza, and Vega.

Chevrolet’s current line up is a far cry from yesteryear’s fleet, but with over 25 cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs models being marketed today, the Chevrolet name continues to impact and shape the American automotive industry.

Never Hired Professional Carpet Cleaners Before? Read On!

When it comes to hiring a great carpet-cleaning company, you are not just going to automatically know which one is best. In order for you to make the right decision and choose the proper company to care for your carpet, you need all the right information. Hire the best carpet cleaning service by following the advice in this article.

Pour plain baking soda on a fresh spill and let it sit for a few minutes. Do not rush to soak up the baking soda, but rather, wait until it begins to foam and bubble. After a few minutes have passed, proceed to wipe it, and the stain, off of the carpet!

There are many carpet cleaning companies popping up because of the availability of portable machines, so make sure that you hire someone that is qualified to do the job. The best way to do this is to ask for licensing information, insurance and references. This will help you hire someone that is fit for the job.

The first step is to prepare your carpet for cleaning. Thoroughly vacuum the area to be cleaned before starting. It is important to remove loose soil and debris prior to cleaning the carpet. For best results, any problem areas should be pre-treated with an appropriate cleaning product before you use the carpet cleaner.

You should always find out if your carpet cleaning company offers a money back guarantee. This is very useful since you may not always be satisfied with the job that was done. Most companies that offer this type of policy work harder because they do not want to end up giving out multiple refunds.

After you get a professional cleaning for your rug, make sure that you do not come in contact with the rug until it dries. Go out to the store or hang out with your friends for a little while as your rug should not be toyed with due to the sensitivity after cleaning.

Who you hire to clean your carpets depends on what style of cleaning they offer and what type of carpet you have. If you have carpet using man-made fibers, you can use a wet carpet cleaner, such as a steamer or wet chemicals. If it's natural fibers, you have to use dry chemicals.

Now that you have learned more about finding a carpet cleaner, find one! Many facets have to be accounted for, so be sure to keep in mind what you learn from this article. You won't regret it.
