Come on Down!

Now that I'm over the rape of the locks--I've been coerced into making a main dish for a Halloween luncheon on Monday. Fine. Nobody can resist mom's scalloped potatoes. But that's not all--dressing up for Halloween is not optional, apparently. Thus yours truly will be dressed as Rod Roddy from The Price is Right. Sigh. What, my friends, could possibly be next?

But that's not the point of this entry. Now that I'm thirty, have (yet another) corporate entry-level job, kid on the way, etc., it's time for an SUV. (Or, as Rod would say, "A new car!")

Now, I know what you're thinking, but you don't live on a hill (in Pittsburgh!) where the City's salt trucks do not frequent. So, my question is this:

A) Jeep Liberty?
B) Toyota Rav 4?
C) Nissan X-Terra?
D) Subaru Outback? (ok, not exactly an SUV but it has that all wheel drive thing)

Suggestions (ok, and smart comments) appreciated.

rew would tell you not to get the subaru (he dislikes his very much) and would opt for the nissan xterra, knowing about gas prices- i would stay away from the jeep liberty- though it is GREAT in the snow. toyota rav4 is good on gas, and pretty good in the snow- could be better with about 300-500 extra pounds though. any of this help?

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
