you don't want them. I've had her in the gym though, but she's about a year out from where she needs to be for nudes.

An electric impact is an awsome tool. I bought a makita one last year, I use it ALL the time. They wont break big stuff loose, but they are great for fender bolts, hose clamps, and basically anything that doesn't reqire a huge amount of tourqe. My 2 favorite uses are for hose clamps (it takes 3 seconds tops to take the whole thing off) and after I break a large bolt loose, I use it to spin the rest of it out.

The cars dvd is awsome. It even has miatas in it. The twins, Mia and Tia. I love that movie.

"clothing accessories for mother

bluenile.com is your friend "


Negative find a local jewler and take the photo from Bluenile.com and all the info about stone size and prongs and give them to the jewler. You can make the same thing for a lot less $$$$.

Ex-Girl (Was made last X-mas gold has skyrockted since then) got this for 150 bucks + better stones (diamond of SI-1 with a like H or I color.) + 14k White Gold + Better Chain

http://www.bluenile.com/product_deta...s=6&set_shape=

Current Girlfriend

Earings had em 14k gold and made for 60 bucks.
http://www.bluenile.com/product_deta...ng_channel.asp

the attached image is what i got her as a B-day / X-mas mix gift the one i made is a little diff 14k white gold and a little diff of a pendent that doesnt block as much of the stone. 6mm stone. Also went with a Swiss Blue Topaz (look freaking amazing and are dirt cheap if you stay 6mm and under) Total cost with chain was 195 bucks. Quoted from a place like Fred Meyer or online was looking 250-350.

anyway dont do jewelry through a middle man like Bluenile or Freddys they mark-up a crap ton.

Ratcheting wrenches are excellent tools when a socket just won't work. They're expensive but worth it, depends on if the step father will let you borrow them later on if you need to use them.
