At first we were lurking on the road, then impose taxes on imports from abroad and now on the sales in the country...and now changing laws. Something feels a bit strange.

Well, the motor carrier exemption, commonly called the "truck driver exemption," was applied to field service engineers who provided computer hardware and software to customers engaged in the cable television business.

Today I was randomly looking over my Amazon profile, and found a list I made of products that help build fine-motor skills in babies, toddlers, and children. I wrote it in 2007 when Jake was 5 and in still in Occupational Therapy - we were really focusing at the time on his fine motor skills. I owe a lot of what I know about such things to our lovely O.T. Rachael, and to many of the books I have listed to the right.

I think a lot of people would be surprised how easy it is to start including fine-motor activities in playtime . . . especially since so many really fun things help to build those skills! Many of you are probably already doing some of these activities with your children and not realizing how great they are for development.

Truck Tire Chains

Thanks for the post!

I was raised in Florida so tire chains had been totally foreign to me, until I moved to CA a few years ago. Moving in the middle of winter is not fun, let me tell you. I guess I ought to have paid more attention in geography class, then I would have known to purchase tire chains so I could get over the mountains on my way to CA! I was surprised when I started getting to the higher elevations and everybody was pulling off the road. I thought maybe they had closed it for some reason. That's when I noticed that there was a horde of people getting out tire chains and putting them on. Obviously becoming from FL I didn't even have any with me, so I had to purchase some off a guy correct there on the side of the road.

Yes... it seems that the media is very biased to their own way of thinking and hasn't improved since you wrote this article.

This law changes may be serious problem to truck drivers.

I think that the new changes in the law are not so bad for the truck drivers, maybe at the beginning it will more difficult but if looking at the wide aspects for long time this is good law.


I got blind sided by my company, example I am hourly warehouse and relief driver and have a class A cdl. I can work in the warehouse 10 hrs a day all week then they have a short run (over 100 miles)on fri. and put in 8 hrs. on the road come back work the warehouse for two more hrs and because i made that run get knocked out of my overtime for the week, where as if I had stayed in the warehouse all week I would have gotten the overtime- how the hell can they manipulate labor laws this way ?

I work for Western Express in Alabama. I drive a yard truck that shuttles trailers to and from the International Paper plant across the street to be loaded and then back to our yard to be picked up by various carriers. I worked 12 hr days - 4days on, 4 days off. I punch a time clock when I arrive and when I leave and punch in and out for a 30 minute lunch. I believe I am entitled to overtime pay. Can someone clarify this for me? Thanks.
