Philanthropic Graphic Design:

Hey there Gulf Coast Residents,

I'm a 26-year-old Graphic Designer who went to high school on the Gulf Coast. I have lots of good memories from there. My mom still lives down there. Out of fondness for the area, I had the idea to offer small businesses (who had been affected by the Gulf Oil Spill) a Free logo design (or redesign) package. I have the full info here:

The premise is that they need to be a legit business, and they must have a real need. I'm trying to get started on it by November so I can have this ready for them by December — a xmas gift, I suppose.

If you think this would benefit someone, Please help me get the word out. I know that the members of this board are super-diverse — maybe you know someone-who-knows-someone who owns a small business? I feel I could definitely use some logo-work in my portfolio, so this would be mutually beneficial. Thanks again. (Any comments or thoughts appreciated).

mississippi divorce laws?

If I'm still married, but filing for divorce soon, can I legally kick my husband out of the house we rent? And if he's not on the lease?? And how will it work if he decides not to sign the divorce papers? Will they give him a certain amount of time before doing so?

Serious issue with my boss

in October I was acting as security for a party at the casino I work at.
At this party the director of security decided to attend with his girlfriend(not his wife). He asked a different person twice to remove her top. Once to touch and once to take pictures.
I had to report this under company policy and there was an investigation. He was suspended a day. He found out that it was me and twice that week tried to intimidate me and tell me a family member's employment and my own may be affected. I spoke with the head of HR and I thought it was over.
2 days ago he approached me again and started his speech again about how I almost cost him a job and if I wanted him to look out for me and my job I needed to watch his back. He also started asking me about my family and how they would be if I lost my job.
Obviously going to anyone at the casino won't work. And quitting isn't an option. Any suggestions?

Petland selling puppy mill puppies! Take action.

A Petland has opened in D'Iberville...

Yesterday during a news conference, The HSUS revealed the results of an 8-month investigation into Petland Inc., the country’s largest chain of puppy-selling pet stores. The results reveal that many Petland stores across the country are supporting cruel puppy mills, even while telling unsuspecting customers that the dogs come only from good breeders.

There are approximately 140 Petland stores in the U.S., selling tens of thousands of puppies each year. In the largest-ever puppy mill investigation, HSUS investigators visited 21 Petland stores and 35 breeders and brokers who sold puppies to Petland stores. Investigators also reviewed interstate import records of an additional 322 breeders, USDA reports and more than 17,000 individual puppies linked to Petland stores.

According to Stephanie Shain, director of The HSUS Stop Puppy Mills Campaign, “Petland stores investigated by The HSUS are perpetuating the abusive puppy mill industry, where dogs are treated not like pets, but like a cash crop. They know that consumers won’t stand for the cruelty inherent in mass-breeding facilities, so they make outrageous claims to hide the reality that the dogs came from puppy mills. People have a right to know exactly what they are buying, but the real victims are the breeding dogs who are confined to life in a cage for as long as people are duped into buying their puppies."

For Sale!

I'm selling off both my current bikes to pay for a medical procedure. I need to sell these ASAP! Lucky me does not have medical insurance, but you get the picture.

2008 Kawasaki Ninja 250R: $4000 Firm

This bike is in PERFECT condition, I only put about 2413 miles on it before I got my 'Busa. It has NEVER been dropped or wrecked. I've had a few light modifications done:

  • Two Brothers V.A.L.E. 4-2-1 Full Exhaust M2-Carbon Kit carbon fiber (pic above was taken right before I had it put on)
  • Aftermarket foot pegs
  • Carbon fiber tank grips
  • Red billet aluminum track spikes
  • Halo/Angel Eye headlights (the rings are red and controlled by a push button switch strategically hidden ;) )
    This is not my picture, but a picture from the guy I bought them from:

2004 Suzuki Hayabusa GSX 1300 R - $6000

Just like my other bike, this is near perfect condition. I get it tuned up and the oil changed like clockwork. It's pretty much stock except for the 25 shot nitrous system on it and the aftermarket pegs, LEDS, and tank grips. This thing is WICKEDLY fast.

Any questions, email me or comment. No test drives unless you have the cash in hand. To many idiots out there wrecking bikes on test drives. I can meet you nearly anywhere between Baton Rouge, LA and Panama City, FL. Both bikes have stands (like the one in the Ninja's picture).  Like I said, I have some medical issues I need to resolve so I am selling my bikes to pay for it.

I also have the following vehicles I am willing to sell as well if anyone is interested:

2007 Toyota Tacoma (Orange) LOTS of upgrades including 38 inch tires, $2000 stereo system. VERY low miles
2005 Ford F-150 XLT Triton (Maroon) - 36,789 miles
1998 Ford F-150 (Green) - Nearly 200,000 miles... I actually bought this one off a family member as a work truck but it runs PERFECTLY.

All my vehicles get scheduled tune ups, oil changes, etc. I'm OCD about that...

Between the cash I already have and if I can sell two or three of these vehicles, I should have everything taken care of and can buy me a new bike. Lord knows I don't want to be driving our car around much... I feel gay even sitting in that thing...
