Car rental

Hello there ladies! (And even a few men who have joined us lately...)
There is a sister in my ward who is looking for some kind of work she could do for you while at home (anything on the computer, assembly, whatever).
Another sister would like to purchase your used vehicle and make monthly
payments on it if possible. If you can help either of these sisters please
contact me and I will forward your note on to them. Thanks!
So many people now have high speed Internet access in their homes that they can turn their computer into a phone and call anywhere in the world. You are probably familiar with "instant messaging," or "IMing," which is free and takes place from computer to computer. But now you can use your computer to make phone calls for free. It’s a given that IM services are free, but the idea of free telephone conversations over the Internet is also possible. One of the biggest and fastest growing of these services is Skype. About 22 million people are now using Skype around the world. You call other Skype customers for free using a headset device, and calling people without the service is less than two cents a minute. Apparently, the sound quality is near perfect, as well. All you have to do is download the program on your computer and you’re set. Calling overseas costs nothing! That is great news.
In other telecommunications news, hotels are blocking cell phone signals in their rooms and lobbies because they are losing tons of money on missed phone charges. People are using cell phones instead of making calls from their hotel phones. So, hotels in the U.S. have imported a German-made device that blocks cellular signals. The equipment is apparently illegal, but it’s not stopping hotels from doing it. If you need to dial 911 in an emergency, this is bad news. Just remember that it’s happening. And, if you’re traveling and are in a hotel, you may need to go outside. The good news is that a hotel recently messed up my reservations and were so apologetic that they kept offering us goodies like bags of popcorn and free movies in our room. Managers always have the ability to make you happy if you ask them what they can do...
Finally, if you're making travel plans for the upcoming holidays here are a few on-line coupons for rental cars:
Visit by December 31, 2004 and you will receive an electronic coupon for one free day of a midsize through fullsize 4-door car in the US or Canada. Simply request coupon ID F271 at the time of reservation.
Also, you can go to and follow the instructions to earn a free rental day certificate for every 2 qualifying rentals you make during the promotion.
Have a fantabulous day!
Sister Thrifty
