Tony Blair stops a corruption inquiry

Tony Blair said on Friday a decision to stop a corruption inquiry into a multi-billion-pound defence deal with Saudi Arabia was vital to British interests and he took full responsibility.
Was he right and what implications does this raise for a corrupt free government/country and what signals does this send to corrupt industries?

Why was no Background check run on Obama before he was allowed to run for Presidnet of the USA

Any executive position, secret service agent, FBI etc. all have background checks run before hired. Obama is interviewing for President of the USA. Why were no backgound checks done before he was allowed to run for this position. If it was an issue, why was it ignored and so many are blinded by his shady past?

Do you talk to yourself? I know I”m not crazy but I do find myself talking to myself sometimes. Generally I’m just thinking and speaking out loud trying to rationalise what I’m thinking.

I know they say the first signs of madness are growing hairs on the palms of your hands and the second sign is looking for them but people always say a sign of a mental disorder is talking to yourself. Well I”m sorry but I do it all the time, in the car, in the house and even at work I can mumble as I work. I’m not crazy am I? or do people just not admit it lol .. Blah Blah Blah ..

walking rash

I have a tendency to get a rash between my legs when I do a lot of walking, like golfing. I’m active and in pretty good shape. My legs are a little bigger than most, so I guess that”s why they rub? What is the best way to solve this? I even wear bicycle shorts which help, but occasionally it still happens. HELP!!!

If SOMEONE Rises from DEAD, Proclaiming GOD’S Salvation for ALL, would ALL mankind become Godly?

There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and who feasted sumptuously every day. And at his gate lay a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, who longed to satisfy his hunger with what fell from the rich man’s table; even the dogs would come and lick his sores. The poor man died and was carried away by the Angels to be with Abraham. The rich man also died and was buried. In Hades, where he was being tormented, he looked up and saw Abraham far away with Lazarus by his side. He called out, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am in agony in these flames. But Abraham said, Child, remember that during your lifetime you received your good things, and Lazarus in like manner evil things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in agony. Besides all this, between you and us a great chasm has been fixed, so that those who might want to pass from here to you CANNOT do so, AND NO ONE CAN CROSS from there to us. He said, "Then, father, I BEG YOU TO SEND HIM TO MY FATHER’S house…for I have five brothers…THAT HE MAY WARN THEM, SO THAT THEY WILL NOT ALSO COME INTO THIS PLACE OF TORMENT". Abraham replied, "THEY HAVE MOSES AND THE PROPHETS; THEY SHOULD LISTEN TO THEM" He said, "NO, FATHER ABRAHAM; BUT IF SOMEONE GOES TO THEM FROM THE DEAD, they will repent" He said to him, "IF THEY DO NOT LISTEN TO MOSES AND THE PROPHETS, NEITHER WILL THEY BE CONVINCED EVEN IF SOMEONE RISES FROM THE DEAD"

How do you decide which charity to give to?

I suppose a conidtion or illness that affects a member of your family (or circle of friends) has a big influence.

There’s too many good causes so my policy is to just donate regularly to 1 cause. A bit mean maybe, but there you go. The charity in question involves "water" and "aid". Go figure.

(mods – you can remove that last line if you feel it is blatant advertising)

When you buy something in a shop and paid cash, it turns out the item doesn’t fit but you’ve lost the receipt. The shop is refusing to exchange even though the tags are on the item, is there anything you can do?

Ok, hope everyone has a blessed Sunday and if you attend any type of church service, say a little prayer for me, ok? (((((HUGS))))) to everyone out there.

What is an ISP’s Mail server?

I’m trying to check my Hotmail Emails with Windows Mail for Vista but just the sending ain’t working. I know Hotmail offical doesn’t allowed in its free version to do that but with some tricks its possible. I just need to "Enter your ISP’s mail server under Outgoing e-mail server (SMTP) name:.
Typically, you’ll use the same server you use for your other non-Windows Live Hotmail email account. " HELP!!

when i send an email using hotmail, the recipient see’s it as sent from "shishkebab", my sisters old nickname. how do i change it?

i’d like it to say my name. i’ve gone thrugh all the settings i can think of but cannot find how. if i email support they’ll take weeks. if i email myself, msn messenger informs me i have new mail from shish kebab. it’s nothing to do with the actual email address because that’s the same as my user name on here. it’s too hot today and my brain is locking up. please hold my hand and walk me slowley and patiently step by step lol. thanks.

Screen freeze up?

Recently while on my computer my cursor suddenly changed to a black circle with a slash through the center. This can’t be good I think to myself. The screen was frozen and all I could do was shut down. It has happened twice now. Any ideas on cause?

FREEZE AT START

i installed Win 7 onto a brand new PC with a raw HD. Ran great all morning. Shut it down during lunch, came back and will not start. I get the dreaded "blue screen of death" when trying to use the windows repair at startup. If I try to start normally it freezes at the welcome screen. Any ideas?

Advice needed please! We are taking our dog to the vet this evening.

When at the vet last week he advised us that our dog was in no pain and to take her home and let her pass away in her sleep. She is still hanging on and she has absolutley no quality of life…she can’t even manage to go outside. We have decided that we don’t want her to suffer anymore so we are taking her tonight to get put to sleep.
I am going with my Mum, she wants to stay with the dog as they do it. Is this wise? I have never been in this situation before as I was too young when things like this happened in the past. Will it just seem like she has gone to sleep? I am a little worried as I don’t know what to expect.

For those of you who have very old computers please check with someone to make sure that your system will be able to work with this upgrade…You can refuse this upgrade but as the internet evolves you will not be able to do many things with your computer that you used to be able to do….but you have some time to check into what you should do for your computer before the upgrade starts.

paid for dining table, promised delivery before xmas, not coming until 2nd weeks in Jan, what are my rifhts

we visteded our local brach of John Peters over 2 months ago in order to buy a dining table for Christmas. After speaking to a sales person we were promised that the table would be delivered within 6 weeks. We actually limited our table options by looking only looking at the ones that would be delivered in time for Christmas. We paid cash for the goods and they said they would call us asap to arrange a suitable delivery date.

We have constantly had to phone John Peters and each time they informed us that the table would be delivered but as yet they did not have a date. Apparently they emailed the manufacturer and were awaiting a response.

I called John Peters this morning who informed me that the table was definately coming and that she would call be back this afternoon. I have just received a call to say that the table is in a container that will not arrive until the 2nd week of January. Please could you advise me of my rights?
