Loan Troubles Because of Bad Credit?

I've been there. It is tough to find youself a place that will hook you up with bad credit loans. Especially the way the market is right now. Take a look at that link and see what they have to offer in that regard and maybe learn a thing or two to help yourself get back on track by viewing their credit repair section.

Forget A-Rod. Give me Miguel Cabrera

The Tigers have been mentioned as one of the many suitors who may be looking at trying to put a deal together for Miggy. Already acquiring Edgar Renteria from the Braves the day trade talks opened for the of season the Tigers could make a Yankee-esque type of line up by adding a guy like this even if it didn't include A-Rod.

After getting Renteria we have upgraded our hitting at 1st base and haven't really taken a whole lot from the hitting that was there when Guillen moved over to first. Imagine replacing Brandon Inge at 3rd with this guy? This would be one incredible line up and this kid is young. 24 years old to be exact. This guy is going to cost someone big time to get him as he is just eligible for arbitration in a couple years.

I could see this happening, but not sure if we will get involved with it or not. I have thought we were int he market for Dontrelle Willis for quite a while. Maybe both?'s nice to dream I guess.

Holiday Shopping With a Greater Purpose for Alzheimer's Patients

One of the best things about the holidays is that we actually start to think about other people a bit more than we tend to do the rest of the year. Either it be by purchasing gifts, or looking at those who are less fortunate than we are and giving the gift of our time to try and help them just a little during the holiday season.

This holiday gift store is a bit unique in how it helps people. The Alzheimer's Foundation of America eStore is set up so that shoppers can purchase gifts that will not only make those they give them to happy, but also give a little bit back to the overall good by having their purchases benefit the Alzheimer's Foundation of America. All proceeds from your purchases go to support this cause that is quite familiar to many of us.

Although most think of foundations such as this only as a means to find a cure for a specific disease, they are typically much more than that. Many Alzheimer's patients require an enormous amount of care and The Alzheimer's Foundation of America is very interested in helping in this cause as well.

It can be very difficult to live with someone that has Alzheimer's, or even see someone you love deal with the disease. It can also be very frustrating for those that care for them because they are in essence talking to a person that forgets many of the things they have asked you previously, or at later stages even forget who you are entirely. I see this all the time when I talk to a good friend's mother, or my grandmother. They both have the disease in some form and you get used to answering those same questions over and over. It takes some time to learn how to adjust to it. It can be very frustrating to some and it is always good if they can get some time away. That is where a lot of the extra care comes in. Not only to give caregivers some time to themselves, but to help slow the disease down and make it less burdensome. Let's the patients stay at home longer, and get much better care.

Take some time to look at what the holiday gift store has to offer and see if it has something you want to buy to help support continuing Alzheimer's research and care giving. There is also helpful info for those that have to help someone with the disease.

Farnsworth Back to Detroit?

Was just reading around the message boards about the Tigers and came a crossed something I hadn't even considered for this off season. Kyle Farnsworth coming back. Got linked to an article that had a very small note in it that said the Tigers may be interested in dealing for Kyle "I'll Kick Your Ass" Farnsworth.

in which the erratic Kyle Farnsworth — who could draw interest from the Baltimore Orioles and the Detroit Tigers — is the lone veteran under contract. article It's about half way down.

Yeah..doesn't sound all that big a deal and typical New York i don't see anything coming from it.
