I have a 18 month puppy who has hip dysplasia. The surgery will cost between $3,000 and $4,000 and I just don't have the money for it. I thought I would wait until after I graduated college and got a better job before getting her a hip replacement, but I just can't take it anymore. Sometimes her hips hurt her so badly she doesn't even want to jump into the car. She'll give me a look that's so sad and I'll pick her up so she doesn't have to hurt anymore. I just can't take it.
I have a large collection of books and I was thinking I could do a fund raiser for her. "Books for Emily." Auction them off or sell them for something like $10 a piece. I'd put her paw print in the inside cover and then write a thank you note under it. After I sold off all my books I can chip in what I saved up for college and take a semester or two off.
Long story short, would I need permission to raise money for a sum less than $3,000?2 AnswersLaw Enforcement & Police9 years ago
Exactly what the title says. I'm a little out of my depths concerning anything technical....
Model Name: MacBook
Model Identifier: MacBook5,1
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 2 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1
Total Number Of Cores: 2
L2 Cache: 3 MB
Memory: 2 GB
Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz

I want to have enough memory to play a game on my computer and to maybe support having Windows.
I found this link: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1651
But that really doesn't help me pick a nice affordable, yet reliable, memory card... thing. I checked out Crucial, but they didn't seem to have MB51.007D.B03 as an option.
Can anyone help me with this? Also, maybe suggest other things that should be +1?1 AnswerLaptops & Notebooks9 years ago
Okay, so my parents haven't provided for me since I was 17. And I mean, nada. As in I pay for my own schooling, my own housing, my own everything.
My mom is talking about claiming me as an dependent this year. Which is just shy of being outrageous.
I'm 22, I worked my *** off to make $20,000 this year in the city of Los Angeles and I'm enrolled in school part-time. Is it in anyway beneficial for me to just let her claim me? She doesn't file taxes because she likes to cheat the government.
I'd rather not, but if it helps me and if it will stave off an argument, then I might be inclined to just give in.2 AnswersUnited States1 decade ago
I live in Southern California and anyone who lives here can attest that the desert is never far away. My parents and I were going on a picnic, I guess, though the landscape and season didn't match the word. Desolate was apt. The few trees I saw were craggy and bleak and the rocks and the gritty sand around me were bleached tan like the bared shrubs. I was sure then and am sure now that there was no water to be found for miles. I remember the hot air drying my tongue and asking my dad for water. He pulled a smooth, round stone from his pocket and told me to suck on it. I did, and was gratified when my mouth watered.
We didn't walk far and the path was shaded by outcroppings, but my nose still burned from the heat and the smell of dirt. We came upon a picnic table full in the sun and my mom laid out lunch. The table was hot and the ground rippled with heat waves. Sound was weird there. It didn't seem to travel normally. I remember asking for juice and having my voice come out smothered. It was like I was speaking through a blanket. I can remember my parents unpacking and the vibrations through the table, but sound was distant and twisted. I raised my voice and it traveled like it was heavy and the oppressive heat made it /feel/ like it was heavy.
I don't recall much after than. I don't recall leaving or what I ate, but I still remember not being heard. I colored this memory to show I'm not making this up. I KNOW I'm not. I remember it. I remember the trees, I remember the dried out table that was chin high to me. I remember sitting in the hot bench and speaking. I remember my ears feeling muffled like they were stuffed with cotton, but without the sensation of pressure. I can remember how I had to yell and how it sounded like it couldn't go farther than a foot from my mouth.
I remember all this, but I can't find any geographical example or physics explanation for it.
Where on Earth is sound dampened? How does it dampen? It must be able to be dampened. If sound can be amplified by a valley, couldn't it be dampened by something else?3 AnswersPhysics1 decade ago
So, I just watched Kate and Leopold and I now have this urge for some good old period books.
I've read The Pillars of the Earth books, the Bloody Jack series, the Hood series, all of Jane Austen's books, Dumas', Ivanhoe, Dickens, Diana Gabaldon's, um... and a few others I can't think of.
Out of the list I liked Pillars of the Earth for it's characters. The Bloody Jack series for it's unabashed sense of adventure, The Count of Monte Cristo for it's intrigue, and Ivanhoe for it's amazing portrayal of chivalry.
Any ideas?2 AnswersBooks & Authors1 decade ago
