Personalized Bookmarks

Top Creative Uses for Personalized Bookmarks

Personalized bookmarks aren't only for marking your place in the book or magazine you're reading. But you really don't have to be an avid reader to appreciate custom bookmarks no matter how or where you received them, or to give them out to others.

While some people have drifted right by our table at craft shows saying, 'They're pretty, but I don't read,' many others have stopped and purchased a few plus gave us some great ideas for using them that we hadn't thought of.

How to Stop Crashes on Windows 7

The way to fix crashes on Windows 7 (and any Windows system) is to repair the various problems that cause them to crash. A "crash" is basically where Windows will hit a problem that it doesn't know how to fix, leading it to either stop working, or to restart. This problem has been present on all versions of Windows, but because Win7 is so advanced, a lot of the former problems that caused the likes of Vista & XP to crash have been resolved. Now, there's just one main issue which is likely causing your Windows 7 system to crash, and it's actually very easy to fix…

Windows 7 can crash for a range of reasons, but the most likely cause of this problem is actually down to a part of your PC called the "registry". This is a database at the heart of every Windows computer, which stores vital files & settings that your system needs to run. The registry is basically like a central library of your computer – storing a huge amount of important pieces of information, such as your desktop wallpaper, Internet bookmarks and even your stored passwords.

Hawaiian Cruise Aboard Norwegian's Pride Of America

I recently spent some time visiting most of the major islands that make up Hawaii. This was my first trip to the 50th State, and I had a hard time making a decision about where to stay when I got there. I spent countless hours scouring the internet and various forums to get an inside scoop as to what island I would enjoy the most. What I found is that each island has a great deal to offer, and my ideal vacation would be spent seeing them all. That's where Norwegian's Pride of America came to the rescue.

THE SHIP.

Norwegian Cruise Lines -Pride of America set sail in 2005, and she is the first US flagged ship built in nearly 50 years. One look at this glorious vessel; and you can tell that the name "Pride of America" goes further than just the lettering on the outside. Everywhere on this boat you are reminded of what a great country the United States is, and most of the lounges, restaurants etc… Have an American theme. Some reviewers have commented that they felt this was too tacky, however, I beg to differ, to an extent, these ships are all tacky, and this one seemed to fit.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Noises – Whining, Humming, Roaring

Jeep Grand Cherokees are prone to having several common mechanical problems. The problem that we cover today is with noisy differentials (rear ends). While it is acceptable for Jeep differentials to make some noise, it's not good to ignore noises that are more than moderate or if the noise is noticeably getting louder. Usually rear end whining noises from Jeeps are rated on a scale from 1-10, anything under a 5 is acceptable and would not merit a repair. If a roaring noise is heard this is another matter, roaring noises should be looked into right away. I've rebuilt hundreds of rear ends and out of those, approximately 80% of them have been in Jeeps. Also the Jeeps I've worked on were not driven off road or abused in any way that I could see. They were mainly driven as a regular family car would be, so this leads me to conclude that this is just a common problem due to design.

Roaring noises, are one of the most common sounds a Jeep Grand Cherokee makes from the rear end. As I mentioned before, if roaring noises are heard this should be addressed as soon as possible. Typically around 45 MPH is when sounds will start coming from the rear end. If roaring is heard at all speeds or at parking lot speeds, the problem has progressed. Roaring noises are from worn and pitted bearings. Carrier bearings (which are the side bearings) are the most common bearings to fail. Next are the pinion bearings, especially if a pinion seal has been replaced at some point and the bearing preload was excessive. This means the pinion nut was tightened too much. Over-tightening the pinion nut can cause an excessive load on the pinion bearings and can wear the bearings in a short period of time. If the bearing replacement is postponed too long, metal can travel through the differential oil and damage other moving parts in the differential. This can cause accelerated wear of the ring and pinion gears. So if they are caught early enough, the bearings can be replaced without replacing the ring and pinion gears.

Ring and Pinion gears that are worn excessively make a whining or humming noise, sometimes on acceleration and sometimes on deceleration. And they are more expensive to replace than just the bearings. The ring and pinion gears can make a whining noise without a roaring noise being present from the bearings. But when replacing the ring and pinion gears the other bearings, including two pinion bearings and carrier bearings are recommended to be replaced also. The axle bearings should be inspected but they are the farthest away from the differential gears and bearings, so they most likely will be OK especially on lower mileage vehicles.

User Review of the Garmin Nuvi 750

I decided to get a GPS because I was getting lost too often- wasting valuable time and money.

So the first question that came to mind was "how do I know which GPS to get? It would be too time consuming (and is it allowed?) to take each model from the store and test it out. So I turned to Consumer Reports. Rational or not, I tend to look at the top of the list and try and find a good mix of price/quality. Based on my research, I decided to get a Garmin Nuvi 750. Garmin gives the Garmin Nuvi 750 a suggested retail price of $ 535.70 USD so I jumped at the chance to buy one from my local Sam's Club for $299. This price is pretty good in relation to what's out there although you can probably get one on eBay for a few dollars cheaper.

NAVIGATION
The Garmin Nuvi 750 allows you to tinker with two navigation options, ROUTE PREFERENCE and AVOIDANCES. "Route preference" allows you to tell the GPS to give you directions based on which route is the fastest (take the freeway from point A to point B. Even though it is 5 miles longer than the shortest distance, at 60 MPH Vs 30 MPH you will get there 10 min earlier), shortest in distance, or off road. "Avoidances" allows you to specify whether or not you want to intentionally avoid U-turns, highways, toll roads, traffic, Ferries, Carpool Lanes, and Unpaved Roads. Note* Even though you are given the option to avoid traffic, The Garmin Nuvi 750 does not come equipped to do so straight out of the box. It needs an additional adapter to detect traffic, but this can run a few hundred dollars and is supposedly not built very well. A search for the Garmin GTM 20 Fm Band Traffic Receiver on Amazon.com shows that users can pick up this adapter for around $160. Look a little more thought, and you will find that users are not happy at all with what they have purchased.
