I have been working hard at taking better pictures for my Hubs. I taken pictures outside and in various parts of the house, on cloudy days and sunny ones. Sometimes I take 50 to 60 pictures of the same thing. In regards to the Leafs, their defence is underrated as a whole because rival fans don want to give them credit. They were like 12th or 13th in the league in terms of goals against, only 4 more goals against than Tampa who had Vezina level goaltending.

Also, we are hearing that even if you pass the school it is lottery pick to get the job. Not quite sure I understand that part of it. Just lots of questions and not sure of all of the answers. Did you catch the officers name? Honestly, i go to that precinct, and tell them you like to file a police report on the accident and that the officer wouldn let you at the scene. If you have a picture of the plate you should have the timestamp of the incident which will help. Take pictures of ANY bruising or scratching on your body as well as your bike..
