"Some [trust] in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God."-Psalm 20:7


"The Big "E"; No More Oil

"In this Nation a prophetic sound shall come, and as a result of it, you will not need the oil of the Middle East. There is a new energy that is coming forth. The prophet knows it as the Big "E" but knows nothing else. A new form of energy is coming forth. America is pioneering it, and it shall take you from a trillion dollar deficit to no deficit whatsoever within a six-year period says the Spirit of God. And the Middle East shall say you still need oil. But America shall say no longer from you, for O Israel, O Israel what is hidden shall be revealed says the Lord. America rejoice for this is your day, says the Lord.
-from Elijah List

    I went to get an oil change last week (Friday, July 6th of 2007) at Tire Plus in Oakdale, MN during my July 4th-Holday Week Vacation. There were about 3 men just sitting in the waiting area and some guy started chatting. I somehow jumped in the conversation to give my point of view and started talking about the "hot topic" of immigration. After giving my encouragement to him during his pessimistic view of his personal job affect, he opened up to me about his trucking life. He (found out his name was Steve when he was called up that his car is done) told me about the pressures of being a trucker before his present-day job of 20+ years (printing comapny in St. Louis Park). Steve shared about the illlegal stuff he had to do to just "survive" (e.g. carry over the limit loads, which varies in each state; carry a bat in case of getting attacked; driving over the speed or take detours just to make their destination in time after getting "bumped" from their schedule due to a traffic stop or whatever; etc...) as a trucker.

    "Also, with leaving upper management naturally comes a pay cut. As a result, I'm selling my car--it's a 2004 Mazda 6i. Incredible car, I've hardly had it a year. So if you know anyone who needs a good car, let me know. It's worth about $16,000 if I sold it here in Madison."-Cindy N.

    Below is my online-claim (Alliance Claims Solutions) I just recently (Wednesday, December 24th @6-7pm CDT 2008-72,250 miles) submitted. to my auto insurance (agent-Bremer Insurance Agency in Morris, MN Office: 320-589-1026) company (Grinnel Mutual Reinsurance Company (based in Iowa)-fortunately, I had comprehensive
    "...Other Than CollisionCommonly referred to as comprehensive coverage, this covers most damage to your car for other than collision, such as fire, theft, explosion, glass claims, vandalism, or a collision with an animal.."

    I was adjusting (around 11:30a-12pm) my "loose" (caused by accidentally press the down button of the window, which I meant to push the unlock button-wasn't looking-just feeling for the buttons as I was looking at the "open" crevice; Just recently, both driver side & front passenger-side windows has been having some technical problems) window at the Walmart parking lot in Sauk Centre (1 hour east of my home in Morris, MN) as I was just finishing my Christmas shopping. I was headed to St. Paul (less than 2 hours south east along nearby I-94). I needed to adjust my window, so I used my flat head screw driver to go between the glass and the door fram. It was single digit weather and never thought the glass would break so easily. It shattered all over inside the passenger (right of the driver-side) seat and floor. I tried to go to an Auto Glass specialist in Sauk Centre, but the repair guy wasn't available (Christmas Eve-everybody heading home early!. I have a bag of the broken glass still and some pictures (unfortunately, I wasn't able to take the pics immediately as I wasn't thinking of doing this claim at the time) if you need them.

    UPDATE:

    As of 11am (Friday, December 26th of 2008), I was able to get this window replace (for $166.25) by Olympic Auto Glass-Tracies All Auto Repair (oil changes for $28!); 433 University Ave. (between N. Western Ave. & Arundel St.; 1-2 miles west of the State Capitol) ; St. Paul, MN 55101; 651-379-5067. Wow-quick service-an answer to prayer!
