I think I found the best website for historical exchange rates. Before finding this site I would rely on Oanda and/or even, however, it seems those choices have gotten worst rather than better for providing historical data that is easily exportable into excel.

Bank of England provides a tool that provides historical fx rates based on the dates you enter for all countries. You can then click on a country to get even more detailed historical data that is exportable to excel and other formats.

I want to give a shout out to emtbravo for being fast to the scene. EMTbravo provides fire and police incident reports in Westchester and NYC's other Northern suburbs.

I just heard a siren hear in Mount Kisco and again we have a fire: said:

Date: 1/13/09
Time: 0030
Location: 70 Boltis Street Mount Kisco
Frequency: 46.2600 - County Trunk System
Units Operating: Mount Kisco FD / Bedford Hills FD
Description Of Incident:structure fire
Writer: Crime Cop

0028 Command O/S reporting a working structure fire
0030 Command requesting Bedford Hills F.A.S.T. team to the scene
0036 Chappaqua one engine and one truck relocate to Mt. Kisco Station 1

There was a fire not far from here in Bedford on my birthday that completely gutted a house not far from here:


Date: 12/30/2008
Time: 1334hrs
Location: 411 Bedford Rd
Frequency: 46.26, Trunk 16 FG 1
Units Operating: Bedford Hills E-198, 199, TL-57, T-5, Car 2032, 2033; Mount Kisco FAST, E-104; Katonah Engine.
Description Of Incident: Fully-involved 2.5-story frame 20X40 P/D.
Writer: EJS1810, Truck4

EMTbravo had the incident report almost immediately after I heard the fire alarms which was pretty impressive. So if your looking for westchester county fire incident reports check out emtbravo. They are an excellent resource when your wondering why the hell you heard all those sirens or why a house in your neighborhood you saw up yesterday is burned down today.

Some clicking in my referral logs led me to Yahoo Answers. Now if anyone doesn't know Yahoo Answers is where anybody is allowed ask a question for the internet public to answer. The questions are usually some of the stupidest questions (EX: Why is the Sky blue? is asked 2400 times) and the answers usually are no help either. I think they have users who have competitions (with themselves, I guess?) to see how many questions they can answer, because most answers are too general with no effort to be any help any way. The link I clicked was for questions relating to Facebook. Well, apparently Facebook is down because it led to about 200 questions on yahoo asking "Is Facebook down?". This is funny because first the need to ask this question more than once is stupid and second the panic that one website can evoke on the internet.

A small, newly-discovered asteroid named 2008 TC3 is approaching Earth and chances are good that it will hit. Steve Chesley of JPL estimates that atmospheric entry will occur on Oct 7th at 0246 UTC over northern Sudan . Measuring only a few meters across, the space rock poses no threat to the ground, but it should create a spectacular fireball, releasing about a kiloton of energy as it disintegrates and explodes in the atmosphere. Stay tuned for updates

Okay so according to this report it doesn't look like were actually screwed, however, as a coincidence “The Time Monks” has also chose October 7th as the beginning of a period of extraordinary event that will surpass 9/11. The Time Monks is a computer based project that is basically computers analyzing data to predict the future. said:

“ The Web Bots see September 22-27, 2008 as precursor dates to the main turning point date of October 7, 2008. Closely watch events during September 22-27, 2008 for hints as to what to expect on October 7, 2008.

Cliff said whenever “it” happens, and whatever “it” turns out to be, “it” will be a date in history you remember like 9/11, we will remember 10/7.

The Web Bots foresee that October 7, 2008 to February 19, 2009 will be filled with emotional intensity, and the length of the release period will be extraordinary. The Web Bots have never picked up any event lasting this long. In comparison, 9/11 length lasted about 10 days. This event will be four months of high emotion…….”

Based upon the September 22nd interview on Coast to Coast radio with the Time Monks, here is an outline of what the Web Bots have uncovered for the following weeks, months and years:

The next year will get very ugly and will change your life worse than 9/11. It is important to understand the magnitude of the data. The sort of agony, grief, pain and rage that was felt the six days following 9/11 will be felt for five and a half months. From October 7th, 2008 until March of next year….

* Will there be a total economic collapse?

Yes. 2009 will be a “year of transformation.” The keyword “monumental” shows up as how the future will view our current situation. Time Monks describe this as an “epic situation”

And add to this my blog post how the stock market actually decreased drastically 2-3 weeks before the September 11 events, speculating you may be able to see a huge drop in the stock market as predicting a huge event.

So all these commingling events seem to all add up, and I think it's as a good time as any to get your tinfoil hat on. User submitted image No?

And as if this is not enough to worry about we also have a UFO and some aliens visiting us on October 14th. Blossom Goodchild, a physic says she has been visited by the Federation of Light. The FoL gave her a message that speaks of giant lightships appearing and humanity will be rocked by the sightings. She stresses they come in peace. Here's the exact message she said she received. said:

***The Lightships are there in our skies
Connected to the thoughts and wishes and hopes of humanity
They are indeed higher self consciousness aspects of humanity
Or could be referred to as "us in the future"
First contact individually has already occurred
It is First contact globally that has not occurred yet
This First contact globally shall be in response to the consciousness level of humanity
Discernment must be used as darkworkers try to counteract everything that the Light brings in (yet they are failing in this)****

Boy are those aliens going to be mad when they finally decided to come visit us and we are no longer here.

Note: This is part one of the Job Scam Series

I just received an email offering a career with PHC Consulting and confirmed that this is a scam. Despite it's elaborate looking website I'm 99.99% positive this website is a scam.

How do I know this is a scam?
It's registry data says the website was registered/create September 21 2008. No legitimate business can be created in 2 days.

Why am I writing about this?
Hopefully I this blog will show up in search results and prevent potential victims. Since this is a new scam there were no search results for this company so I thought I should make some.

How does a scam have such a sophisticated website?
Anybody can create a professional looking website in a matter of minutes by copying an existing website. You can do this is Firefox by selecting File->Save as File->Webpage Complete. A scammer would then change the logo and text to coincide with the name of their fictional company.

What's the purpose of this scam
They want to get information from you... SS#(from application), bank account number (from direct deposit info), email address (for spamming), or they are going try get you to send them money somehow or another.

Here's a copy of the email I received:

PHC Consulting has an opening for a TRANSACTIONS SPECIALIST position. We do our best to fit all our customers' needs as soon as possible. That's why all are staff is a professionally trained and can solve any problem that occurs on their way. We are not just a set of people, we are a family.

- The ability to operate with more than one task effectively, and have an adaptable, flexible, professional attitude.
- The ability of stable communication with our company and on

Please send your answer letter or resume to our e-mail:
(!) Add ours e-mail in your Address Book!!!

Best regards,
Linda Makovski.

What should I do if I provided my information to scammers?
  1. Do not respond to further communications.
  2. If you sent bank Information: Call your bank immediately and tell them what happened. They should be able to change your account number or cancel your account.
  3. If you are still concerned you might want to enroll in credit monitoring such as LifeLock Identity Theft Prevention
  4. You can also file a claim with The Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3). The Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) is a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C), and the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA). They are probably overloaded with these types of claim though, so I would not expect an individual response.

Upromise ( promise is a one-stop college service provider that helps families earn, save and pay for higher education. With Upromise, families can automatically save money for college while making everyday purchases at grocery and drug stores, gas stations, restaurants, retail stores and online shopping sites.

It's so easy to start saving money all you need to do is create a FREE account and enter your bonus card numbers, credit card numbers into your account. That's it! Upromise will automatically track your cards for qualifying purchases and add money to your Upromise balance. You can check back with your account to see how much you saved.

I have been using Upromise for a while now and I saved almost $30. I currently don't even have any person to allocate my savings to either. I am just letting the funds accumulate for once I do have someone.

This is like getting extra cash back for a lot of your everyday spending and it's stupid to pass out on.

Worried about security.. paranoid about identity theft? Well the only comfort I can provide is this website has been featured on many popular websites:, Wall Street Journal, and NY Times to list a few.

Everybody create an account now:... it's free money:

I am not currently in the market for a new car but if you are, here are two important websites you should checkout: Compare the miles per gallon and annual fuel cost between models before making your decision which model you buy.

Edmunds This has everything from reviews to price quotes. I suggest you get a price quote for the model your interested in and bring this to dealer with you as it could be used in negotiations. Also determine the value of your used car before you trade it in.

Take the GMAC Insurance National Drivers Test and see if you pass with flying colors, or if you could use a little brushing up.

I got 19 out of 20 correct.

NY was rated second worst drivers as NJ was #1 for being the overall worst drivers. GO NY!

NASA is offering $17,000 for a test (human) subject to stay in bed for 90 days. This is according to their website:
Participants will spend 90 days lying in bed, (except for limited times for specific tests) with their body slightly tilted downward (head down, feet up). Every day, they will be awake for 16 hours and lights out (asleep) for 8 hours.
Hmm... this could work for me as long as there is internet provisions haha.. bonus if the 90 days fall during tax season. I find it rather appalling that the price is so set so high anyways I'm sure they can really find a good subject for less than their offer. It's good to know our tax dollars go towards paying for someone who's only duties are to sleep on the job. This is the best use of tax dollars yet.

I always dream of hosting a huge bash and booking a popular band for entertainment. Of course, I'll have to become rich first. My pick would probably be Hootie and the Blowfish. They have a sound that almost everybody likes, they seem like a cool band to meet, their music is perfect for a party, and they are not too popular anymore so their prices shouldn't too high. Right?... they can't be too expensive? Well according to Clear Channel College Entertainment Guide at least you will have to drop $100k for a performance. So it looks like I may have to win the lotto first.

Want to be an instant millionaire?

Report tax evasion to the IRS.

Under IRC Section 7623 the IRS authorizes the payment of awards from the proceeds of amounts the IRS collects by reason of the information provided by an individual (aka the Whistleblower). The reward is between 15-30% of the tax recovered depending on the amount of information you provide. So if you provide information that leads to the IRS recovering $10 million in taxes you could be an instant millionaire!

To be eligble the amount in dispute must exceed $2 million dollars (including tax,interest,penalties, etc.) and taxable income for the violator must exceed 200k in any year of issue.

Oh and don't forget to claim your reward on your tax return, as yes... it is subject to income tax.

A new genuine idea I just discovered was from a couple who wanted to a find a way to get a more than decent price for their home in Cleveland. Instead of selling their house for a fixed amount on the market they decided to raffle it out. Offering anyone to join in the raffle with a 200 word essay and a $199 fee. They are expecting at least 3,000 entries that would net them $597,000 for the "sale" of the house. Now I congratulate them on their originality, however choose not to even bother submitting my entry for these reasons:

1.) Legality - is this even legal? Have they consulted a lawyer and abided by local and federal laws for conducting a lottery? Are they legally obligated to transfer over the house? What happens to my entry fee if this is found to be illegal.
2.) According to the pictures the Kitchen consists of a table only... where am I going to cook dinner?
3.) What kind of story are they looking for and what will determine who is the winner? What's to stop them for awarding the house to a friend? Can someone lie in their essay? Will they verify the authenticity of someone's sob-story to win the house? My story so far is "I lost three limbs in war, my wife and kids were killed in a home invasion"

Check it out your self:

The website (, I believe has found a way to get the best search rank for a number of popular programs including Microsoft money, and office. Offering unlimited free downloads of popular software, videos, and Mp3's for a one time price of $4.87. Seems like a real steal, doesn't it? Not really since a quick google research determine's that they only thing they are offering to paid members links to other sites that are offering these file's for download. Meaning you probably have just as much luck doing a google search yourself. I do applaud them though for being able to get high up on the search rank scale, I wish I new how they accomplish it. They only registered the site in June 2007.

I am not the company scamming you therefor I can not give you refunds. Feel free to post your experiences with this company to deter others from signing up with this company. However do not give your order # and request a refunds from me as again, I am not the the company who screwed you.

Neat little test. Which side of your brain do you use, Left or Right?

If clockwise, then you use more of the right side of the brain and vice versa.

Most of us would see the dancer turning anti-clockwise though you can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it.

Left Brain
uses logic
detail oriented
facts rule
words and language
present and past
math and science
can comprehend
order/pattern perception
knows object name
reality based
forms strategies
Right Brain
uses feeling
"big picture" oriented
imagination rules
symbols and images
present and future
philosophy & religion
can "get it" (i.e. meaning)
spatial perception
knows object function
fantasy based
presents possibilities
risk taking

Occasionally I check my referral logs to see which pages are linking to here. I hate it when I see a page but I am not able to view it because the site needs a login. I recently got a good quantity of referrals from Luelinks. I had no idea about this site until then but a quick Google search turns out it is apparently a "secret" invite-only community. I like being associated with these things ... so if someone can please send a FREE invite to it'd be much appreciated. I'm good with secrets!

However on topic, with the recent shutdown of the UK file sharing site and arrest of its webmaster (News story) it could be a risk to be a member of these communities. But don't let that deter from sending me a link!

Oh and let us get this out of the way "Luelinks doesn't exist" lolol lolz rofl

I am always looking on the net for the great gift site. A site where you can go and find something for anyone. A site with products sorted by catogory of need. I found this site while looking on and it looks to be pretty close to what I am looking for.

site: Red Envelope

It has really cool... original gift ideas and looks like you can find a gift for anyone. The only thing it needs is more gift suggestions.

With the use of cell phones phone cards and pay phones have become a novelty. However this company has found a new use for phone cards. You can use these things to spoof the caller id and have any name show up on the caller id display. So do not wait any longer... buy one... call your mom with County Prison showing up on the display and ask to her bail you out.

Spoofcard, fake you caller ID

Joost (pronounced 'juiced') is a system for distributing TV shows and other forms of video over the Web using peer-to-peer TV technology, created by Niklas Zennstrom and Janus Friis.

Watch your favorite shows from MTV, Comedy Central, and WB on your computer.

I have the program and I gotta tell you I'm quite impressed. There's not that much programming available but they do have some cools shows and the quality is decent too.

Joost sign up is currently an invite-only basis.

The good news is I got invites so leave a comment with your email address and I will be nice enough to send you an invite.


Update: The Joost software seems to be very tempermental and will no longer load up. I checked the forums and it seems a lot of users are having the same issues as me. It's not worth the hastle so I uninstalled the program and will wait for

a.)better software AND
b.)more programming.

Unfortunately, I can no longer offer invitations as you need the program installed to send invitations. The alternative is to goto and "Sign up for Joost beta" and you should receive an invite in a couple days.
