air hogs is good because you know it'll be durable. I'd hate to get a kid something and have it break on the second day. The more I think of it, it would be good to donate more middle/hs age stuff because most of the stuff is probably donated for younger kids.

i'm ready to order the canon 28mm
but just waiting til i find some toys .. and maybe something else
to order together
i was studying up on SSD's last night til really late
but i'm going to hold off on that til after christmas
since i think those will drop more in price
the camera lens isn't going to ... so this is about as good as it will get with the extra 10% off and free shipping

i might go crazy and order the sigma 10-20mm as well
they're both sitting in my shopping cart
originally want the canon 10-22mm but... i think the sigma 10-20 might be a much better buy

earlier today i deposited $1000 cash in my chase because i was going to order my laptop
and then i decided i'm also going to order a new lens from amazon using a 10% off code
i have $1076.52 in my chase account ... and i need $1087 or so to make both purchases right now

i was about to drive over to the ATM and make another deposit ... then i realized i can just stay home and write myself a check from BofA and deposit by mobile app to my chase

i am brilliant! and so lazy

anyway
anyone ... give me some suggestions for a toy drive
need to buy a toy for kids ... anywhere from elementary school to high school age
we're going to a community center that will be giving away toys and holding a potluck for kids and families in the neighborhood
i'll probably spend like $20.. maybe $30 if it's something that's a great deal
i have extra 10% off available on amazon + free shipping and can get it shipped in time so might as well order it today and get it done
Suggestions from our toy drive at work:
Transformers
Hair Accessories
Soccer ball, Basketball, Football
Hello Kitty items
Bratz Dolls
Hoodies
MP3 Players
Kid Nail Polish & Make-Up
LEGOs
Girl Purses
RC Cars
Easy Bake Ovens
Bike/Scooter Helmets and Pads
Target and other Gift Cards

Lenses hold their value, thankfully.
Flash prices are volatile, which affects SSDs. :/

And the Canon 10-22mm isn't all that great, so yeah.

this is a good list
i think the RC car and helicopter can be unisex and good for anyone not too young so sticking to those two items
spending $30 something on kids i don't know is good enough for me

oh and hoodies ...are expensive and get kids shot

i just opened some shipments from Gap and Old Navy
(i don't always shop at fancy places)
actually, i love Land's End/land's end canvas for all my casual clothes these days
so cheap! discount code on top of sales, free shipping, and easy return to local sears

anyway
i really like the "lived in khakis" from Gap.. but dude it's still over $40 after discount
not sure if i will keep
and going to return all the other stuff ... don't need/don't fit/don't want

My Ride: Steel Grey 325Ci
Hey everyone, have a question and hoping if anyone can point me in the right direction. I'm writing this while searching my problem.

Today my car started fine and nothing was wrong; drove it to my friend's house and around 3pm had to go do an errand. About 1 mile from my house, my power steering went out, but luckily got home. Called a couple of buddies to come over and check my car. We turned on the car to get a good look in the engine bay and saw that the alternator belt wasn't running at all. My fluids are topped off and there doesn't seem to be a leak around the power steering pulley. The car is running on the battery only and the a/c belt runs when the car is on.

Does anyone know what the problem might be?
