Just finished Life As We Knew It as well. Same as everyone else said. Frightening and I couldn't put it down and I dreamt about it.

Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean A. Auel I don't think I've ever read a book set during this time period - with cave people hunting mammoth and such. I liked the story and the historical context, but I thought the book was too long and redundant. It could have been shortened quite a bit without leaving anything out. There were a lot of parts were Broud's jealousy was rehashed, over and over and other things were also repeated many times. I have the other books, but I...
For the best credit score, you should have 2-4. Less than two is not enough and more than 4 is too many and looks bad. You should be loyal to whatever credit cards you have and not always cancel/apply for new ones because you want to have a long credit history.
The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood Jeez... frightening... I'm really glad I read this. Can anyone recommend anything else by Margaret Atwood or anything similar?

It had a good message but I have always found Samson's writing style...

It's kind of like reading a Choose Your Own Adventure book where the choices are already made for you. Only part I didn't like was when Coker goes on an extended rant...
So I went to Target today and got some Fish Oil. I couldn't find Cod Liver Oil anywhere. I got the Nature Made brand that is derived from anchovy and sardine and it has DHA and EPA.

This has major repercussions on earth, with earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes taking place, and day-to-day life falling apart as a result. See through...
