Who is DJ Pattrson? AirBnB Trash Guest's Name

According to the SF Examiner, the name of the suspect in custody for completely trashing an AirBnB's is Faith Clifton of Belmont, San Francisco. Here is her Facebook account:

You can read the first person account of the ordeal at the renters blog here. Pretty amazing how methodical she was about turning the place upside down by wearing the owner's clothes, burning things in the blocked flume fireplace, and even hanging up a picture that wasn't previously hung up. It's a job Nikki Syxx would have been proud of.

How do I stop Spam text messages?

I was getting spam texts for a while on my cell phone.
"Need Extra Cash?
Get $1,500 cash advance wired to you within 1 hour!
go to: www.cashXXXDon't go
promo code:PJ16Z

to end reply STOP"

I didn't want to reply b/c in emails we aren't supposed to reply to them or click on them at all. But after talking to my t-mobile rep, he said that cell phones are much safer in that regard. Also, Bush's anti-spam law requires that If you text back to them STOP, they have to stop. If they continue, call your cell phone company for a number to complain.

I was initially complaining to the FCC, but the process took too long.

How to Parallel Park

This works most of the time. It's actually pretty easy. First of all, be sure to take the test in the car you are the most used to.

so, it's easy to parallel park.

First, pull up to the car so your front bumper is aligned with their mirror. Now turn the wheel all the way to the right and start backing up slowly.

Look to the rear left side of your car and back up until your rear bumper is closer to the curb than the car in back of your's car.

Now turn all the way to the left and pull her in. Watch the car in front that you don't hit it. and have some faith. If you are taking the test, back in veeerrry slowly and if you hit the curb, pretend like it was the brake, then turn in and try your hardest to straighten it up. You only get one chance to manuever it right.
