This doesn't have a lot to do with "personal injury" but I thought you might enjoy it anyway!  Lowell
Dog's Top Ten Pet Peeves
1.  Blaming your farts on me... not funny.. not funny at all !!!
2. Taking me to the vet for "the big snip",
then acting surprised when I freak out every time we go back!

3. Taking me for a walk, then not letting me check stuff out...
Exactly whose walk is this anyway?
4. Any trick that involves balancing food on my nose...
Stop it!
5. Any haircut that involves bows or ribbons...
Now you know why we chew your stuff up when you're not home.
6. The sleight of hand, fake fetch throw.
You fooled a dog! Whoooo Hoooooooo! What a proud moment for the top of the food chain.
7. Yelling at me for barking...
I'M A FRIGGIN' DOG, YOU IDIOT!

8. Getting upset when I sniff the crotches of your guests. Sorry,
but I haven't quite mastered that handshake thing yet.
9. Dog sweaters? Hello ???...
Haven't you noticed the fur?
10. How you act disgusted when I lick myself.
Look, we both know the truth, you're just jealous.
Now lay off me on some of these things.
We both know who's boss here!!!
You don't see me picking up your poop do you ???

Saving Money on Auto Insurance

<><>
If you suffer from sticker shock every time you open up your auto insurance bill, then it's time to consider ways that may help reduce the cost.

Quite simply, being a good driver is one way to pay less for insurance. Insurance companies generally look at the past three years of your driving history. A minor traffic infraction can potentially impact your rates.

The type of car you drive also plays a role. If you're shopping for a new car, call your insurance agent and get an estimate of what your premium might be. If the car has a low risk of theft and has the latest safety gear, you may get a break.

Other ways to save: Most companies offer multi-policy discounts if you have the same company carry more than one of your insurance policies; students may be eligible for "good student" discounts; and you can raise the deductible, which is your out-of-pocket expense on a claim.

Auto Makers Offer Safety Systems For High-Risk Teen Drivers - The Auto Channel

New studies indicate numerous distractions like cell phones and vehicle passengers put teen drivers at greater risk for fatal car crashes. However, some auto manufacturers like Volvo Cars say they have developed numerous safety systems to help combat this statistic. To prevent drunk driving, the ‘multi lock system’ forces the driver to blow into a built-in breathalyzer before the car engine will start. In addition, a special ignition key limits the car’s speed to ensure further safety.
