  1. I think she's finally taking in some things this place
    and its beauty. She starts to open up to Safta and probably wouldn't actually mind to give this whole vacation thing a chance. She really love her Safta, even after just a day ago she'd first met her. I think she's just thinking about home and a lot of things... just going on in her mind. She must love her so much that she's already thinking of taking her to see or stroll around her home town Chicago. But still i think that she thinks this trip is a total disaster. Her father ruining it, her family whom she hardly new (but is getting to know them), her cousin who seems to hate her, and the NO-SHIRT-CUTE-JERK, who she thinks is a crazy freak who didn't even at least warn her that HE... was in the room and not her cousin Snotty, watching her buck naked while changing in to her clothes.

  2. CHAPTER 8
    It’s nice to hear that Amy is getting along with her grandma. Now she seems to be more flexible talking to her. I think that she’s learning more about her grandma by the good communications they have together. I think that it will draw her even closer to her grandma. I have a feeling that she will learn a lot of stuffs from her that will, maybe, change her or touch her. Amy will learn a lot of new stuffs from her grandma about her father and the lifestyle of her father’s family.

    Wow. Amy seems to have so much trouble with her life right now but somehow, at least the things unexpectedly going to her can make her slightly happier. Meeting her grandmother, which finally came into place, made her feel happy and I think that is really a heart lifter. I feel sad thnking about this compared to my life because I wasn't able to meet any of my grandmothers. In my opinion, she is actually lucky, and the more I think of it, I am mad at Amy for thinking her life sucks. It annoys me that people think it that way too, and drama seems to happen more frequently. But that's just what I think. But with plots in this chapter, it's great!

    I think that getting attack by lots of bees is horrible. I mean after getting sting it hurts a lot because I have experienced it many times. It does give you pain in the butt; it’ll make you realize not to disturb them. I would scream and of course I don’t mind running into my dad, but if it’s someone who spied on me while I was naked, I’d rather keep on running. I would rather be home playing or hanging out with friends besides going on a vacation and getting attacked by a bunch of bees.I wouldn't say anything like her life being ruin,there are some parents who don't even bother to check their kids until there all grown up.

  5. Amy is already spending her second day at Israel. She seems to get along with Safta very well. On the other hand, i can tell that she misses her home very much. I think she is all excited about telling Safta about Chicago. As Amy is jogging in the mountains, she's about to get stung by the bees. Avi tries to help but she refuses. I think Avi feels kind of sorry for the incident that happened in O'Snot's room and wants to be friends. It will be way much easier for Amy to get along with new people if she changes her attitude.

  7. I think that in this chapter Amy sees the beauty in Israel. She just might be changing her mind after all. Getting chased around by bees is the worst thing possible, but when a cute guy comes around to save you it turns things around. Amy was mean to turn down a offer for help from Avi. I think she was just concern for her snotty cousin to say some shit about her or the fact that she wants nothing to do with him because he saw her undress.

  8. As Amy makes more conversation with her grandmother, the connection between them seems to get stronger. Amy even talked to her Safta in a tone she would talk to her friends, which I think is a good sign that's saying they're getting along well. Her grandmother looks like a very comfortable person whom anyone can rely on. I'm very sure that she will be Amy's first friend in Israel!
    Avi always appears when Amy is in trouble, or when she's in a very embarassing moment; I think I see a love affair coming up! Right now, however, the two seem uninterested into each other- infact, Amy seems to get a little irritated by Avi. But usually, in many love stories, the one you hate most becomes your only love.

  9. Amy and her Safta are really becoming close, that’s good! I wonder how it feels to be chased by bee’s… I thought she was really going to be attacked by it. Luckily her friend Doo-Doo saves her! Sometimes I wonder where these people get their names. I admire the Israeli tradition when someone is leaving to the army. They present gifts, gifts that actually mean something, but in Saipan it’s nothing like that. Amy should’ve gone to the ritual, that’s one way to avoid Snotty. This chapter wasn’t all that interesting. I want more stories, of Avi and Amy and I still don’t like Snotty or O’snat.

  10. There are some products in the market that help in reducing the risk of overheating of a CPU. The Arctic Cooling �Freezer 7 Pro� for instance is able to �transfer heat up to 200 watts�.

  11. Thermalright AXP-140 HTPC CPU Cooler Intel� cools the CPU surroundings to �create a general reduction in temperature inside [the] computer�. Whatever kind of product that keeps the temperature of the CPU in check and cools it down will help in prolonging the the life of the CPU and reduce the risk of damage.

  12. Searching for the critical temperature of the kind of CPU installed in the computer in question is as easy as going to the manufacturer�s website.

  13. The coding sheet of the manufacturer shows the temperature more often than not.. The coding is not universal, it is manufacturer specific. Each of the CPU manufacturers have their own data sheet and will not be the same as another manufacturer..
