Can You Meet Me Halfway

Next time you set up a coffee or lunch date with a long-distance friend just say let's meet half way'

All you need to do is go online, type in the two locations, and gives you an exact halfway point.

This site works in 35 countries across the globe and allows users to specify the type of trip with a point of interest like a restaurant or a coffee shop, and gives you perfect halfway meeting locations.

Just pop in your address or postal code, then your friend's, and the type of place you want to meet at. After a brief encounter with a giant eyeball (suspicious eh?), the systemcalculates a good halfway point and laso list it's own suggestions. You can even send a permalink with the results to your friend(S) so they can chime in.

Buying a Used Car in Calgary

The first thing on the agenda for a lot of newcomers to this city is buying a car, and most of the time, people want to buy a pre-owned or used vehicle.

Often times, these people make the mistake of going to auto dealers or car auctions to purchase their ride....BAD idea!

Your best bet - if you're looking to buy a used car in Calgary - is to check out Craigslist and Kijiji. Often times, you can find good cars for great prices on these two sites.

There are a lot of folks who are moving who just want to sell their automobiles as soon as possible. Some of them also post ads for their vehciles on the Calgary Herald & Calgary Sun websites

Also, there are people who cannot afford their car payments so they try to sell them without thinking about making a profit. It's also much easier to negotiate with individuals than it is with car dealers.

Just make sure you do your research before buying, because the chances of getting ripped off is higher. But if you know what to look for and how to ask the right questions, you'l be safe.

Here are some articles to prepare you before buying a used car or truck.
