Get a Wristband -- -- This is a new Company I'm doing business with, and they have all sorts of cool wristbands -- pop in to see what they have for Big Brother 6...

Cara and I got the Wristbands for End Poverty - White; Breast Cancer Awareness & Research - Pink; and the Lance Armstrong Livestrong Wristbands - Yellow. Show your Support with a Wristband -- I'm thinking you could eventually show up with an entire arm all covered with the bands, but everyone would quickly know what you're all about ... ha,ha! The money goes to the Right Causes, though, so it's all good! is a great Source for the Rubber Wristbands, too -- they have them for all the Causes (like the Lance Armstrong LiveStrong Bracelets...), and almost anything else you can imagine. Don't let the Pokemon stuff throw you off, although I did find this Company because my 6 year old son, Aidan, loooves all things Pokemon!

Personal Breathalizers (Because we all know that 'Back-to-School' can mean, 'Back-to-the-Party'...!) Use Coupon Code AILSA for 5% Off!

Now you know I enjoy a 'wee nip' every now and then, and the chances are fairly high that you, too, might like to have a drink or two (or five, and that's why this is sooo important... especially if the 'Five' turns into a higher number...). So check this out -- you can get a Personal Breathalizer that you can carry with you when you head out for a night (or morning... really, I don't know exactly what your morning plans are...) to Check Your Alcohol Level before you Leave. Never ever Drink and Drive -- just stay put, get a Cab, or make sure you have a Designated Driver (and check them to make sure they really are sober, too!).

Oh, and you should always check your Alcohol Level in the MORNING after a night of drinking, to make sure you are okay to drive -- you might be very surprised at how much Alcohol can remain in your system, especially if you've arrived in at, say, 4:00 in the morning, and your first Class is at 8:30... of course, you'd have to wonder why anyone would purposefully schedule themselves in for an Early Morning "Is the sun up yet?" kind of Class, but you never know...!)

Anyway, I found a great Link for you to get one of these Personal Breathalizers. It's called a Digital Alcohol Detector. Use the Coupon Code AILSA (recognize the Name?? ha,ha!) for an extra 5% Off! Scooore! We'll Save Lives AND Save Some Money! Use Coupon Code AILSA for 5% Off!

Find a Roommate This is a great Source for all sorts of People -- College Students, Divorced Dads... just kidding... although, this would make for a good 'transitional space'... I actually rented a Room in a Giant Victorian House in L.A. when I first moved down there with Cara (back in the '90's), and I met some of my favorite Friends, there. Good way to get into a New City.

<Banner USB>Check this out -- what a great way to carry around a Memory Stick! Their hottest new product is the Swiss Memory Stick. It slides into any USB port, and works like an extra hard drive. Carry it from computer to computer. Also includes a knife with 7 tools, including a flashlight and pen. They have another version of this Memory Stick that is safe to take on Airplanes and into School & Work -- it comes without the Knife -- very practical.

You know what you can get here? Those cool New Pocket Bikes -- and they have a Mini-Motorbike, too... and about a million other cool things! You have to be extra careful with those little Mini-Bikes, but you have to be careful with anything that's motorized (or comes in a bottle or is sharp and pointy, for that matter...). They look like a lot of fun, and I wouldn't be surprised if they came up with special parks for people to ride them -- just like regular Moto-Cross Bikes, which Dwight is heavily into, and has been for years... maybe they have a deal where you can ride these bikes on the Moto-Cross Trails... worth checking into!

Oh, and I asked Dwight if there's a way to slow these little Pocket-Bikes down a bit, if you wanted to, and he told me two ways to do that. I'll have to write down the information so I can tell you, too!
