Answer by Terry1ball
let it out and then let go of the cat,don’t know about it being more playful but if the cat catches it it will stop it biting.

Answer by Soojin An
Some people are so mean! Whenever your guinea pig tries to bite, gently tap her on the nose to let her know she is not going to get away with it. And don’t give in to what she wants, that will just teach her she can bite to get her way. When he tries to bite, I heard you show her the palm of your hand. The skin is tight and she can’t bite it. And if she chews other stuff like your table or something, you can spray it with perfume as guinea pigs don’t like strong smells. For getting your guinea pig to be more playful, the towel trick is perfect! When I first got my guinea pig she was scared of her surroundings and wasn’t willing to move one inch. But when I tried the towel trick for the set time, she was much more playful! Now she will stand up very high on her hind legs to get treats, and she is now more playful and curious. Same with my other guinea pig who was really really shy! Someone on yahoo answers came up with this, and you basically wrap your piggy up in a towel and watch tv, read, eat with it and they really love doing your day with it. Each day they come out of their shell a little more. You do it for two weeks every day for two hours, and you can go to YouTube and type in towel trick to see the video. Here’s what happened with my latest guinea pig:
First days: really no change, didn’t move at all.
End of first week: a little more curious.
Second week: takes food from my hand.
Middle/end of second week: comes out of towel to explore and goes on hind leg to get a veggie!
Good luck, this always works like magic, and have fun with your piggy!

Definately the htc touch pro 2, it has a HUGE touch screen display, Windows mobile 6.5 i believe and a nice slide out keyboard. Without a doubt, the htc touch pro 2 is the way to go 🙂

Answer by nissan_max
HTC Touch pro2 hands down! I am still using a HTC from 3 years ago and still one of the best smart phones and the tp2 is so much better. Here how I use HTC:
I know longer carry my laptop when flying or most other reasons I use to because I can use 3g/wifi to browse internet and get email.
– Use to watch movies, tv, and listen to music.
– As my only GPS – I use MS live Search – all free – I had dedicated but liked this setup better and maps Always updated.
– email-can get gmail directly to phone-free

The drawback to HTC products is the small amount of memory compared to other smart phones and this phone should have come with a much better camera and with a flash. Oh yeah that will be on the next year model.

Answer by The L Word
I like HTC phones in general & think HTC makes great phones.I would recommend the HTC Pro 2 to you.Seems like a very good phone.

Answer by V, Ms V, Diva, Velicious, Divatologist
I’m currently weighing the same options. I currently have an instinct. This is my 2nd one. The 1st one didn’t last a year. The current one is a refurb and is on it’s last leg and I haven’t even had it for 6 months…ugh.

I really like the pre, but it is lacking some of the things that most basic phones have. I have never owned a palm phone. So, I really can’t compare it to the others. It seems to be a trend to release these so called advanced smartphones lacking the most basic features. It seems small, but hey I’m giving you $ 200. I should get what the $ 9 to $ 50 phone has and more. I’m passing on the pre because I feel that the 2nd gen will be so much better. The phone has a cheap feel and lacks things I’ve grown to love like visual voicemail, voice command, and video recording. I’m sure all that will come, but I feel it should have been on the phone already. I played the OA update game with the instinct and I don’t want to go through it again with the pre. So, I’m passing on this edition and holding out for the 2nd.

I really like the Tour. I have never owned a blackberry phone either. From what I’m reading on the crackberry.com forums, the tour seems to be the best blackberry to date. Many storm owners are opting for the tour it seems. They say that the tour is faster than the others. Now the common complaints are that the back cover is loose and the vibration on some of the phones is weak. They also put the usb port on the side of the phone which many are complaining makes it difficult to hold and use when plugged in. The tour comes with a recessed trackball that many are complaining doesn’t navigate well at times. Those are the main issues I have come across so far. Other than that, most people are very happy with the tour. They love the keyboard and say the phone feels solid. I am leaning towards getting the tour depending on the release and price of touch pro 2.

The touch pro 2 is indeed a beauty. I don’t really care for the design they chose to release here in the states, but that’s not a deal breaker. I’m not a “business or corporate” type, but I do spend a great deal of time using my phone. The keyboard is wicked and I love the conference call/speaker feature. They have improved the 3D touch flo feature. Watching the videos it seems like everything moves very smoothly. It has an accelerometer that makes viewing in portrait and changing to landscape a breeze. I’m a serial texter. I hardly remember what any of my friends sound like on the phone lol. I use the net a great deal, because my job blocks all the good stuff and I’m addicted to facebook and twitter lol. This would be my 1st experience with windows mobile as well. it seems that people either love windows mobile or hate it. I really wish we could get a release date and price for the phone already. They did this same mess with the pre. They had folks hanging by a string waiting for a release date and a price.

So, depending on the price of the touch pro 2, it looks like I’m going to get the tour. I don’t know what to expect as far as pricing for the tp2. The current tp has not dropped in price like most phones have. So, I suspect that this phone will be even more expensive and stay that way. I just hope my phone lasts long enough. I’m giving the tour another 2 – 3 weeks before I buy it. I want to watch the forums to see how the tour holds up in the first month. If my phone last long enough, I will wait for the tp2 provided it doesn’t break the piggy bank. I refuse to buy another phone on it’s release date. The trials and tribulations I went through with the instinct has been quite enough for me.

So, it looks like I’ll be getting the tour. I’ve got my fingers crossed for the tp2 though.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Must see places in New Orleans?

I’m going to New Orleans for Mardi Gras next week, but I want to plan to take some day trips. What are some must see places and things to do?

Answer by NOLA guy
It depends on exactly when you will be in New Orleans.

If you are going for the first weekend of Carnival (Mardi Gras) there are parades and traffic/parking can be difficult but the city will otherwise be operating normally. You can do “tourist stuff” no problem.

If you are going for the second weekend (the period from the evening of Feb 16th to Midnight on Feb 21st) Carnival tends to take over. Traffic/parking/crowds downtown become almost impossible, attractions close, restaurants go to limited menus, and bars/clubs are very crowded. The “girls Gone Wild” type video is usually form the second weekend and taken inside the French Quarter.

Ash Wednesday (the day after Mardi Gras Day is not an official holiday but most attractions stay closed. The city is almost back to normal by Thursday.

For general info:

http://frenchquarter.com/

There are many tours offered and examples are:

www.graylineneworleans.com
www.hauntedhistorytours.com

Mardi Gras and the Jazz Festival are world famous events, but New Orleans hosts many festivals and celebrations throughout the year: www.nola.com/festivals

The Saint Charles Streetcar is the oldest continuously operating street railway in the world and is a “tourist attraction” in its own right. It is part of the public transit system, as are the Canal Street and Riverfront streetcar lines: www.norta.com

Wander around the French Quarter, enjoy the architecture, watch the street entertainers (do tip), and visit some of the historic buildings that have been turned into museums (go to www.frenchquarter.com and click on Historic Attractions).

Assuming the weather is good, you can collect a sandwich lunch and eat in the riverfront park (watch the shipping) or in Jackson Square (a very nice park).

The lobby for the Westin Canal Place Hotel is on the 11th floor and overlooks the French Quarter. It is a great place for an afternoon drink/snack:(www.westin.com).

Preservation Hall has traditional live Jazz, and doesn’t serve alcohol so all ages are welcome: www.preservationhall.com

New Orleans has ballet, opera, a symphony orchestra, and theatre:

www.nobadance.com
www.neworleansopera.org
www.lpomusic.com
www.lepetittheatre.com

There is a free ferry across the Mississippi at the “foot” of Canal Street. It is a short trip but like a harbor cruise w/o a guide: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/canal_street_ferry

The Aquarium, and Audubon Zoo are world-class attractions (www.auduboninstitute.org) and you should see them if you can. The Zoo is several miles from downtown. You can drive to the Zoo (which has free parking) or take public transit from the French Quarter.

Go to www.neworleansmuseums.com for info on museums.

New Orleans City Park has a variety of attractions + free parking. (www.neworleanscitypark.com).

A few restaurant suggestions:

Cafe du Monde is in the French Quarter and you shouldn’t miss having cafe au lait & beignets (www.cafedumonde.com). Another great coffee shop is the Croissant d’Or (at 615 Ursulines Street), which is open from 7:00am to 2:00pm and has food in addition to pastry.

The Palm Court restaurant is very nice, has moderate prices, and offers traditional live jazz starting at 8:00pm: 1204 Decatur Street, tel 504-525-0200 (reservations are important and they are not open every day).

Tujaques Restaurant (823 Decatur Street) is very traditional and has moderate prices: www.tujaguesrestaurant.com

Cafe Degas is a very French restaurant near City Park at 3127 Esplanade – which is not within walking distance of downtown (5 to 10 minutes by taxi). They are closed on Mondays & Tuesdays (504-945-5635).

The Napoleon House restaurant is at 500 Chartres Street in the FQ, and has a menu of great local dishes: www.napoleonhouse.com

I hope you have a great time

Answer by sharkinthewater
Mardi Gras events will likely keep you very busy. But, you should check out the Aquarium, the Insectarium and the World War II museum. They are all down town & will give you a nice break from the Mardi Gras festivities.
