Jailed for a cell phone call

Judge Norene Redmond sentenced Carmen Granata of Eastpointe, MI to 30 days in jail because someone made a phone call from her porch. Thank goodness the police aren’t out dealing with real crimes in Detroit!

Check out Carmen Granata’s story. This was also featured in the Detroit Freepress, among other places.

Man, I’m glad I don’t have neighbors like hers. People that call the cops for that kind of thing make me sick.

How to save 6% on ANY amazon purchase

Doing some Christmas shopping at amazon this year? Well, until Dec 31st, I have a trick that will save you at least 6% on ANY purchase (along with ANY other discount you might have).

1. Go to http://associates.amazon.com and sign up for their affiliate program.
2. Use their interface to build a gift certificate link.
3. Use their interface to build a link for the product you want to buy (may not be necessary).
4. Buy a gift cert with your link, then buy your product with your other link. You will get 6% of the gift card purchase credited to your associates account. You MAY get more credited for purchasing the item. I’m not sure about this part.

Or just skip all that and use my link.
I donate 100% of all profits earned from that link to a local Grand Rapids charity.
