Darren Heinrichsen is going for his Junior year abroad to study at the University of Birmingham in England. His family is very proud of him and his accomplishments and plan to visit him (in England and France) over the Xmas holidays. If anyone else is going to England next year, let Randi know so you can visit Darren. His family will miss him but they know this is a once in a lifetime experience.

HOW TO DETECT A 2-WAY MIRROR
When we visit toilets, bathrooms, hotel rooms, department store fitting rooms, etc., how many of you know for sure that the seemingly ordinary mirror hanging on the wall is a real mirror, or actually a 2-way mirror? (i.e., they can see you, but you can't see them)
There have been many cases of people installing 2-way mirrors in female changing rooms. It is very difficult to positively identify the surface by just looking at it. So, how do we determine with any amount of certainty what type of mirror we are looking at?
Just conduct this simple test: Place the tip of your fingernail against the reflective surface and if there is a GAP between your fingernail and the image of the nail, then it is a GENUINE mirror.
However, if your fingernail DIRECTLY TOUCHES the image of your nail, then BEWARE, FOR IT IS A 2-WAY MIRROR!
So remember, every time you see a mirror, do the fingernail test." It doesn't cost you anything. It is simple to do, and it might save you from getting "visually raped!"

* Girls just want to have fun.
* It's important to make time to do "girl things."
* Calories don't count when you are having lunch(or any other food) with your girlfriends.

A husband, proving to his wife that women talk
more than men, showed her a study which indicated
that men use on the average only 15,000 words
a day, whereas women use 30,000 words a day.
She thought about this for a while and then
told her husband that women use twice as many words
as men because they have to repeat everything they say.
Looking stunned, He said, "What?"
