car electrical problem

My gf has 1997 jeep grand cherokee and im pretty sure it is the 5.2 Laredo version.

A little over a month ago the rear brake lights just decided to stay on. So far the only way to turn turn them off is to disconnect the battery which is what she has been doing.

I read online somewhere that it could possibly be the brake switch located just above the brake pedal. So I replaced that.

The brake lights turned off while I disconnected the old switch but turned right back on after I installed the new one.

So after that didn't work I checked the connectors on all three tail lights, even the ones that don't connect to the brake lights. I also check all the bulb housing. Nothing looks melted or broken. The exposed parts of the wiring i checked also. Everything I checked seemed ok.

The only thing that i can think of is a short somewhere in the wiring. Also while checking the bulbs one was burnt out in the top hatch part. Replaced that one only to have it burn out again as well as the bulb on the opposite side. The middle bulb seems to be fine though.

I will now say that I'm not trained in the mechanical or electrical arts. I am just trying to save my gf money by not taking it to a shop.

Maybe someone on here has had a similar problem.

Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Do you have any experience with getsavin?  Its one of those things that creates ads out of text on your web browser and highlights and underlines the words that are ads.  I've opted out and opted out and opted out again and it will not go away.  Any advice on how to get this to go away?


Ok I teach Grade 1, and we start a new Science Unit tomorrow. They need a title page for their duotangs but as they are Grade 1's I usually draw one out and they colour it.
I want some block letters to write "Mighty Magnets" with but I cannot find a font. Any suggestions?

Something with clear letters, they can be all uppercase but nothing that is too hard to read and I want the kids to be able to colour them so they need to be fat bubble letters.
Sorry for such a weird question, I just have no idea haha.

Did you ever have a stranger kiss you on the hand?

What dessert should I have?

1. York Peppermint Patties (the 2  x 8 oz kind, though I probably would only eat part of one.)

2. Cadbury Egg Ice Cream

3. Yogurt with fruit corner (cherry or blackberry and raspberry)

Music Recommendations

Dear TQC,

I was in a record shop today and I there was so much I wanted to buy but I felt totally overwhelmed and didn't know where to start.  I'd like you to please recommend to me an album (or more than one) that you think I need to have in my life, if you'd be so kind.
I love 'discovering' old or established bands, so I'm hoping for recommendations by bands like (and including) Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Metallica, Dropkick Murphys, T-Rex, The Cure... classic rock and any variations on a theme of rock/metal.... if you have any input it'll be noted and appreciated.

Thank you!

What do you think of The Beatles?

Greatest band ever!
I love their music
I like their music
I like/love their music, but whole "greatest band ever" attitude annoys me
I like/love some of their music, but whole "greatest band ever" attitude annoys me
They have some good songs
Okay, but overated
I don't like their music
I hate their music
Just hearing the name makes me want to punch things
Never heard them
Never heard of them
I haven't heard enough by them to judge

DK/DC: What do you use to wash your hair?

Just shampoo
Shampoo and conditioner
A combo shampoo and conditioner
Something else
I don't wash my hair
I don't have hair

So. I found out on Monday my sister is 3 months pregnant. She has 2 children already, her oldest turned 3 last month and her youngest is 21 months. I'm really happy for her, she wanted another baby and she fell pregnant on her first cycle of being off birth control.

My best friend has been trying to get pregnant for 5 years. She found out yesterday (whilst I was with her) that it's finally happened! I actually cried a little bit when the test came back positive. I'm just so happy that after all the crying and heartbreak she finally got the little plus sign she's been waiting for.

I, on the other hand, have been ttc for almost 2 years with no luck. My doctor has told me it may never happen. I'm trying to come to terms with that and just enjoy my new marriage.

My mother phoned me tonight and all she talked about was my sister and friend being pregnant. I told her after half an hour of non-stop, one sided baby talk that I just needed some of not talking about babies. Which resulted in her calling me selfish, that I was horrible for not being excited for them and that I should be ashamed of myself.

How do I make her understand that I'm so happy and excited for both of them, but at the same time this is extremely hard for me? I want nothing more than my friends and family to be happy but that doesn't stop me being insanely jealous? Am I being selfish?
